    Unique and addictive. [Apr 2009, p.73]

    • 78 Critic Score
    If you have the 07 or 08 versions then only get this for online play. If not, it's worth a punt. [Nov 2008, p.58]

    Excellent, in its own peculiar way, but offers little new if you've got PES 2009. [Winter 2009, p.61]

    "Zoo Keeper: The RPG." As barmy as that might sound, that's about the best way to describe PQ: CTW. [June 2007, p.71]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A meaty - often literally - thriller, well told. With no UK release currently on the cards we point all adventure nuts towards their nearest import site.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    In a sea of brown, grey and black sameyness, this is a rainbow life-raft of joy. Ignore all the joyless people who moan, and get splatting.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    A great Bleach 'thing' but it lacks the grace that holds the show's combat together. [June 2009, p.70]

    • 80 Critic Score
    Deadly tough retro platformer that won't give you an inch. Feat its power. [Apr 2010, p.77]

    Scientific and thoroughly accurate. [June 2010, p.64]

    One of the very best and most substantial titles DSiWare has to offer. [July 2011, p.77]

    Shadow Dragon boasts some of the most intense turn-based squabbling in existence. [Feb 2009, p.60]

    • 81 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    A very pleasant diversion and a great start for genre newbies. [Aug 2009, p.75]

    Good, this. [Dec 2007, p.70]

    It's great for anyone who wants to learn to cook a bit more adventurously or simply expand their repertoire with something that isn't a celebrity cookbook. [Sept 2008, p.71]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 81 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It looks and sounds good, but it's as shallow and frustrating as a conversation with Louie Spence. [Apr 2011, p.79]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 81 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Moments of brilliance, moments of frustration, and masses of replay value. They don't make them like this any more - they remake them.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Though there are problems, and though it doesn't actually match up to the magic of the original, Yoshi's Island DS is still a great little game. [January 2007, p.70]

    If CoD is you thing, you'll get loads of value from this. [Christmas 2010, p.62]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 81 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    A brilliantly ballsy debut on a console short on adult thrills. [May 2009, p.48]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 81 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Still a brilliant game. [Feb 2011, p.64]

    Fans will find a massive playing experience with solid controls. [January 2007, p.65]

    • 60 Critic Score
    Does little to stand out, but is deep and rewarding once you get the hang of it. [Nov 2011, p.76]

    Feels like a real-deal Wii title, so a purchase is a real no-brainer. [Aug 2008, p.71]

    • 88 Critic Score
    Witty story, great characters and a bite-size battle system that's ideal for DS. You can't fail to be impressed by this, regardless of whether or not you're a fan of Final Fantasy. [Mar 2008, p.50]

    "Quotation Forthcoming"

    • 100 Critic Score
    Purer and cheaper than Sonic Colours, this is a great reboot for 2D Sonic. [Issue#56, p.74]

    • 81 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    Expect the depth of an RPG and you may be disappointed, but for latent ninjas this blisteringly quick and beautiful action title will be like manna from heaven. [JPN Import; July 2009, p.64]

    • 67 Critic Score
    An utterly comprehensive yet soulless golf sim. Perhaps it's time the game was reworked instead of just adding another five courses and an idiot mode. [Dec 2008, p.55]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's simple, it's retro, and it's extremely hard to put down once you get started. And excellent package on DS. [Nov 2007, p.58]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fun, silly, occasionally challenging romp. [Dec 2011, p.67]
