    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]

    The perfect example of a WiiWare game: simple to play yet hard to put down. [Aug 2010, p.94]

    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.

    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]

    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]

    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]

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

    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]

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

    It requires a certain group of players - four regular gamers and four compatible controllers - to get the most out of it, but if you tick the boxes this is great.

    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]

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

    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]

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

    A pleasant update to an NES classic, and one that's well worth a download.

    Not quite as epic as Rondo of Blood but still a great new/old addition to the series. [May 2010, p.88]

    Undoubtedly the best-playing Mass Effect game so far, but you can't possibly get the full feel of the Mass Effect universe from it. One to weigh up carefully.

    One of the better Pokemon spin-offs out there, this is also one of the longer-lasting WiiWare games around.

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