    Billy and Mandy's gameplay is chaotic and exciting but ultimately gets boring after an hour or two, even when playing with other people.

    My Pet Shop is surprisingly well-polished for a game aimed at a younger, casual audience.

    Super Toy Cars ends up being a mediocre outing. For some, it might be enough to play through the content it offers and bust it out when friends are over.

    It may be worth picking up if you never played the previous ones, but you will have to deal with the problems of an Inazuma Eleven game from a bygone era.

    If you can get over the repetition, Sakura Samurai is a worthwhile experience. However, with the onslaught of better games on the eShop, you're not missing too much if you skip it.

    Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams comes late to the Wii U and if you’ve been waiting for this version to play it, I’m glad to say that the performance is stable throughout the game, with the exception of parts of the final sequence, where the slowdown might be a blessing anyway.

    The gameplay has serious setbacks, but possibly the worst part of Sonic Adventure DX is its cut-scenes. Featuring an atrocious English translation and mind-numbingly horrible voice acting, Sonic Adventure will, at best, leave many players embarrassed for Sega, and at worst, leave them disgusted with the game.

    It seems obvious, now, that this game is for the hardcore Need for Speed fan. If you love the series, get it; it's a marked improvement.

    Despite its innovative touch screen swing concept, True Swing Golf simply doesn’t deliver. There isn’t enough customization, gameplay variety, or fun to be found.

    Sonic Heroes’ biggest weaknesses are its combat system and related controls. While the three-formation system provides a refreshing choice in combat styles when facing a handful of opponents, the system quickly becomes disorienting in larger battles.

    If you only have a DS and love Scooby and the gang, it's worth it, but if you have the option to play the game on Wii, you're much better off playing that version.

    Banana Bliss is a straightforward puzzle game disguised as something with a bit more pizazz.

    The mini-games in this entry aren’t marginally better or worse than recent games, though there is a good balance of motion-controlled and traditional-controlled mini-games present in the title.

    With short stages and an underlying arcade nature, Wild Adventures: Ultimate Deer Hunt 3D works well as a downloadable title. Control issues aside, the game is well made and a good deal of fun. There isn't much to do unless you are a trophy collector, but if you want an arcade shooter, you could do worse.

    Abyss is fun while it lasts, but could better itself with a more complex design. I enjoyed my time with it, but have no plan to return. I wouldn't regret delving into Abyss, but I sure wouldn't want to stick around too long.

    Billy & Mandy has the beginnings of a decent fighting game, but its unrefined battle system is only suitable as party fodder.
    • 75 Metascore

    The Great Juju Challenge is respectable with some high moments, but the last set of levels aren't quite as fun, and the final Proving Grounds battle is outright frustrating and repetitive.

    That said, PIX3D is kind of relaxing, and lets you make your own pixel art via its creation tool. Just don't go in expecting a challenging experience.

    This is a classic case of a good idea with lackluster execution, making My Word Coach the kind of game that I'd like to see followed up with an expanded and improved sequel.

    How on earth doesn’t this game have a simple auto-save feature?

    At the end of the day, Battle for New York isn’t worth the cash if you’ve already played one of the other DS games, and since it looks like they’ll be using the same engine in the future, you might as well hold out if you haven’t experienced any of the previous titles. Sorry, Spidey.

    Penguin Patrol is a decent puzzle game with cute graphics and quirky characters. If you're willing to suffer through some of the game's more tedious puzzles, it may be worth picking up to occupy time that might otherwise be spent staring off into space.

    In a way, Just Dance is just like an up- and-coming dancer. It's very rough but shows promise, especially when played with friends.

    Smackdown! Vs Raw 2008 is a good game with no frills. It follows the Wii’s motto of everyone can play, and multiplayer is just too much fun. But with this many features missing from the Wii version while all the other versions have so many different match types and wrestling styles, what were THQ thinking?

    Paparazzi ultimately feels like a small, refined part of a larger game. It is fun, but in the same way that a throwaway local multiplayer mode in a larger single-player adventure is entertaining. In a sea of incredible local multiplayer games, Paparazzi is just a short-form, amusing blip on the radar.

    • 65 Critic Score
    This game ambitiously combines several gameplay ideas but never figures out how to balance them against each other for a refined experience. If you're the kind of gamer who can be taken in by artful storytelling even in the absence of polished gameplay, give it a shot.

    A game that can only hope to succeed by banking on name recognition… if it weren't for the title's roots it would never have even registered on anyone's radar.

    There is very little depth, and although the multiplayer mode holds promise as a fun pick-up-and-play diversion at parties, there are better wrestling games, and better fighting games to be had. [Import]

    The inclusion of rhythm gameplay and the varied soundtrack makes it an effort that stays true to the lively spirit of the feature films, but its slow pace and repetitious nature keeps it from being a truly great title. Regardless, if you loved the movies this is worth checking out for a brief period of time.

    The series is screaming for reinvention, and even the introduction of Wii control was not enough to invigorate it.
