    A rental at best, but better we just sweep The Cartel under a sombrero and forget about it.

    It's a competent tie-in with plenty of goodies for fans of the series.

    Patchy. It suffers from bugs that see you teleporting from one place to another, graphical glitches, unfortunate design decisions, and poor level design. On the upside the arcade game is so good it should have been its own game.

    Interesting control scheme, but not much else.

    I am disappointed with the latest trend, where what looks to be a great game on another platform is an ultimate disappointment on the DS.

    EDF4.1 won’t win any awards but, if you can look past its failures, it’s a pretty fun game.

    Despite the messy execution, there are moments of true beauty hidden inside Evoland (unlocking HD pre-rendered backgrounds being one) and there will be moments when you’re legitimately impressed with the next evolution, but there’s nothing in this game that makes it worth the $US10 asking price.

    Refreshing and original. Unfortunately, the lack of victims running from the buildings makes it feel empty, and the repetitious gameplay loses its novelty value after a few hours.

    It just doesn't do it well, either. To fail at the core of motion controlled gameplay at this stage in the Wii's lifespan is hard to accept.

    Overall, Oozi: Earth Adventure is a nice little throwback to 16 bit gaming. The predictability of enemies may make this a walk in the park, however ramping up the difficulty to max provide a decent - often frustrating - challenge.

    Overall this is a game only a niche market will enjoy, anyone else looking for a great SRPG without the massive amount of dialogue should check out Disgaea 3, or any other of the SRPGs on the PS3. While, it has its moments, the battles just take far too long to get to, and the game suffers from the omission of an English dub and poor translation.

    The raw ingredients for a fun, fast-paced, high-adrenaline racer that the Kinect sorely needs are all in place. But sadly CrossBoard 7 is ultimately let down by a lack of fine-tuning in the motion-control and gameplay department.

    Minesweeper Flags is a great ‘pick up and play’ live arcade game. The extra mode, content, multiplayer are a welcome addition to the series. Best of all you know what to expect: hours of addictive gameplay and it’s only 400 points.

    Puzzle design, backgrounds, and atmosphere hold up, but not much else.

    With repetitive combat, an item system that doesn’t accommodate the player’s intelligence, A.I. that can be as dumb as a bag of hammers, and small design decisions that feel like they exist to make bullet-points on the back of a box, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is a mechanically tame game that expects little from the player, and respects them just as much.

    It's a major shame that the game was allowed to come out in this state because it's doing the original title a considerable disservice.

    The music is annoyingly repetitive, but the sound effects are pretty well put together.

    Mixed bag: On one hand, the vehicular combat is solid. On the other, it's let down by poor mechanics and a slew of unwelcome gameplay additions.

    Naruto Shippuden 3D: The New Era feels like an original DS game with texture filtering, poorly executed 3D, and game breaking motion sensor controls tacked on.
    • 46 Metascore

    Sticks to the farm formula and delivers a pretty ordinary game.
    • 55 Metascore

    Mario and Sonic need to stop meeting up like this.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A game that’s atmospheric as hell, but that does nothing with it.
