    Championship-winning concept held back by a few lacklustre mechanics. [Apr 2012, p.91]

    Hardly likely to set the world alight. [Dec 2006, p.44]

    The game's a solid and fun addition to the DS's heaving RPG roster, although it never quite sparks into life like you hope it will and feels a bit young at times.

    Get this if you're tired of the same old boring shooting - every bullet counts. [Sept 2011, p.76]

    Nice touch-screen controls and easy platform puzzles. [June 2011, p.71]

    Difficulty spikes are the last straw, leaving this as a good idea gone distinctly mediocre. [June 2007, p.70]

    The tracklist is weaker too. [Dec 2011, p.73]

    The kind of game that needs a budget price. [May 2009, p.62]

    It's good fun and something different. [May 2009, p.76]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Genre fans won't find much challenge here but it's diverting enough while it lasts. [Aug 2008, p.68]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 74 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    More of the same but better. The expanded tracklist means it's worth a look even if you've got the first one. [Issue#56, p.55]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Offers a serviceable bout of balloon-busting in the meantime. [Oct 2010, p.53]

    • 60 Critic Score
    In English it reveals a lack of depth and some seriously irritating niggles. A real shame. [June 2007, p.50]

    A solid pocket arcade. [Sept 2012, p.108]

    They've made Puzzle Quest feel a bit laborious. [Aug 2010, p.70]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A tasty protein shake for the target audience - a guilty pleasure for fans. [Christmas 2011, p.64]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 74 Metascore

    Totally hollow. [Sept 2009, p.73]

    Most of the Shodowns hold up today, but the bare bones presentation is disappointing. [Apr 2009, p.59]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 73 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Basic, shallow and sickeningly cute, New Inernational Track & Field is fine fo a five-minute blast. Just don't expect to stay entertained for long. [July 2008, p.71]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 73 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Totally rough as a solo game and not exactly packed with multiplayer modes, but the number of players and the smoothness of the controls make it worth investigating.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Some solid two-wheeled action. [May 2009, p.79]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 73 Metascore

    A decent racer with a good track editor, if you haven't already got something similar. [Dec 2009, p.69]

    "Quotation Forthcoming"
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A strong idea, executed with few frills. It's worth experiencing, but your fun may be short-lived. [Jan 2011, p.73]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    The score is for people who like this sort of game. [Christmas 2009, p.70]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It can get repetitive over time and the level design feels uninspired. [Feb 2007, p.59]

    Not really that innovative. [Oct 2008, p.62]
