    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.

    The sort of unique, simple and fun game the Wii needs and does so well. But frustrating hitches and sub-standard graphics tarnish what could have been a classic. [Apr 2007, p.72]

    It's not motion-sensing genius but Metal Slug doesn't have to be. It's the craziest, most action-packed shooter ever and there's room for games like this outside the Virtual Console. [Apr 2007, p.87]

    It's as close to the Potter world as you're likely to get in a videogame an dis fun to play too. [Aug 2007, p.74]

    If you're after a 'serious' football game on the Wii you could do a heck of a lot worse than FIFA 08. If you had concerns about the controls, don't worry - it works. [Dec 2007, p.82]

    While it's not a huge step up from last time, the added modes make it a more complete experience. [Mar 2008, p.72]

    With a bit more to it we'd have no issues giving this a Gold Award. As it is, it's great fun but far too short. [Oct 2008, p.84]

    Link up with other DS owners and this is essential. [Jan 2008, p.88]

    It could do with a little bit more depth but it's simple, it's great fun and it's good value for money. [July 2008, p.93]

    It doesn't change the LEGO forumla but with great movie moments and loads of genuine-if-simple fun, it's still a good little game. [July 2008, p.74]

    A great puzzler and the sort of title we'd like to see more of on WiiWare. [July 2008, p.83]

    A great setting and lots of top shocks - Cursed Mountain is chilling in every sense. [Oct 2009, p.78]

    Like seeing a fantastic movie that only lasts 75 minutes. It's great but over all too quickly.

    A decent remake and one worth the attention of puzzle fans everywhere. [Nov 2008, p.104]

    For those who fancy some non-serious gridiron action it's worth a look. [Nov 2009, p.98]

    A brilliant premise which offers hours of fun, but ultimately falls foul of its own ambition. [Nov 2009, p.92]
    • 83 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A smart, addictive strategy offering that's among DSiWare's very finest games. [Christmas 2009, p.102]

    An essential purchase at a great price. As long as you don't own Drill Spirits, this is superb. [June 2010, p.94]

    One of the better-looking WiiWare games, with gameplay to match. Gets difficult though.

    Solo players will miss out on a lot. Grab some mates and it's the Wii's best multiplayer game.
