    FIFA 07 sets a new standard for the official football game franchise. It's smooth, satisfying and has plenty to keep you busy for ages, both on the pitch and off it. At last a decent FIFA. [Nov 2006, p.88]

    It's a tad repetitive, but easily one of the best Alien releases on a Nintendo system.

    Picross DS is still the best version of the game, but for those new to Picross this is a brilliant introduction.

    How does NST keep Mario/DK feeling so fresh? Yet another clever and expansive puzzle game, if not exactly the most relaxing example of the genre.

    As magnificently, defiantly old-school as ever, Millenium Girl introduces enough new elements to come away feeling fresh and rarely compromised. [July 2014, p.81]

    A superior selection of 8-bit hits makes Remix 2 a fine sequel. [July 2014, p.84]

    While the single-player experience can be shallow, this game really shines in multiplayer. [Christmas 2006, p.82]

    By no means perfect, but it's still a fantastic game that finally gives the blue blazer the sort of fast-paced, slick action he deserves. It's tricky to master but once you do it really shines. [Mar 2007, p.62]

    It's fun to play and has a fantastic script but the annoyances are too blatant to ignore. [Sept 2007, p.78]

    Other than the new controls this is the same as the PS2 and PSP Meltdowns, but when rolling a blob of mercury is as addictive and challenging as this it really doesn't matter. [Apr 2007, p.88]

    Joker is a massive jump forwards from the first GBC game of '98. In terms of depth, storyline and sense of real adventure and progression, it's an enjoyable and compulsive game. [Feb 2008, p.76]

    Boogie is certainly not without its flaws but as a karaoke/rhythm-action game designed to keep a crowd of people genuinely entertained it does the job perfectly. [Sept 2007, p.66]

    It's the most realistic tennis game on the Wii and great fun to play. If you have even a passing interest in tennis this is worth a look. [July 2008, p.73]

    The definitive horse game out there, not that that's a hard claim considering the competition. Still, those with a love of equine action will be more than happy with what it offers. [Feb 2008, p.86]

    There aren't many DS RPG's that play and look this good. The only problem is that it may be too basic for the hardened RPG fans it's aimed at. [May 2009, p.88]

    If you can ignore the casual wrapping, there's a pretty good puzzle game to be found here, even if it's not quite as good as Puzzle Quest. [Feb 2009, p.87]

    If only the putting was more consistent. If it were, this would be as essential as "Grand Slam." [July 2009, p.80]

    It offers nothing new but it's a Guitar Hero game with nearly 50 of the best songs in the series' history, so that's not a bad thing.
