    This surpasses expectations. It looks great, has fantastic online features and the course editor is brilliant. If only the cars felt a little more like cars. [Oct 2007, p.90]

    Better than being in the arcades and with more extras than an all-you-can-eat buffet, Ghost Squad gets a high five from us. Future shooters take note: the bar has been set high. [Feb 2008, p.68]

    If you like your fighting retro then Ultimate Mortal Kombat is the game for you, and the addition of "Puzzle Kombat" and Wi-Fi combat makes it a great package. [Feb 2008, p.70]
    • 64 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It might make the hardcore gamer in us cringe at its mainstream appeal, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. [Feb 2008, p.85]

    An extremely rewarding tour of duty for the DS. [Jan 2008, p.76]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Fast paced, challenging and totally mental, this is a pumping update of the ancient shooter. [Aug 2008, p.87]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    A joyous little platformer that show how WiiWare should be done, but it's all over too soon. [July 2008, p.80]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It's currently the best racing simulation on the Wii by default but it's a good racer in its own right too. [Nov 2008, p.80]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Compulsive to play...Just a shame it's a little short. [July 2009, p.94]
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It's an absolute hoot but if you're after a meaty challenge, you definitely won't find it here.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    If there were a little more variety to the gameplay, this would be damn nigh essential. As it is, it's a high-end, polished game that'll crease your chops into an appreciative grin.

    The best wrestling game on a Nintendo console since the N64 glory days. Impressive.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    This is one spin-off that actually tries to mix things up a bit. One for pop music fans.
    • 67 Metascore

    It's Smash Bros. with a shorter lifespan and less interesting characters, but still fun nonetheless. [Nov 2009, p.72]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It's not a great port and we'd have liked more content, but the quality gameplay shines through.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It's not very easy to get to grips with but once it clicks it's very difficult to put down. [Sept 2010, p.91]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Not the most original gameplay style but its looks and humour more than compensate.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Lots to recommend about this update of the '08 game. Shame there's not more of it though.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The nuts and bolts of the game remain exactly the same, but the branching storyline adds a whole new layer of depth. Splinter Cell fans will love this without being hugely surprised by it. [Dec 2006, p.84]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    If you've already got this from the Wii Virtual Console, the 3D doesn't justify the price, but for everyone else this is another ace Kirby game.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The best football game currently on 3DS. [Feb 2012, p.104]
    • 76 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Not as intuitive as Pullblox or Tetris, but Speedthru: Potzols Puzzle is challenging and addictive. Every bit as fun as it is stressful.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    This is a game that everyone - young and old - can enjoy, even if it lacks the extra pizzazz of Pullblox. [Aug 2012, p.102]
    • 75 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Like a pack of footy stickers, you'll find bits you want and bits you don't. Perhaps not the shiny Nintendo gem we'd hoped for, but a fun return to form.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Plays brilliantly, but is slightly hampered by its reliance on the original code. [Feb 2014, p.87]
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    With six fantasy courses, Mario isn't taking his golf that seriously, but tournaments and challenges ensure there's plenty for serious sports fan to enjoy.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A fun little game that will keep you busy for a while. Just don't expect it to throw you any wild surprises, other than the main control system itself. [Christmas 2007, p.85]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A fun Mario sports title and the best looking game on the DS. [Dec 2006, p.80]
    • 76 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The relaxed pace is good for your blood pressure but it's not much of a challenge. [Mar 2007, p.78]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The woeful AI and a few clumsy sections detract from what's otherwise a really enjoyable arcade-style experience. But it looks and sounds great and there are enough unlockables to warrant a second and third playthrough.
