    Better than the Wii U version... It's beautiful and slightly boring. [May 2013, p.86]
    • 76 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    While far from being a bad game, Duck Tales Remastered is a huge missed opportunity and a sad day for fans who were expecting so much more.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Despite showing enormous potential, Crash Boom Bang! is hampered by dodgy controls and a testing user interface. It's disappointing because this could have been a great multiplayer game. [Christmas 2006, p.80]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    A brave attempt at standing out from the sudoku crowd, but its confusing grids and random mini-games make it more frustrating than refreshing. One for multiplayer only. [May 2007, p.79]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Between the dog-eared visuals and repetitive gameplay, it's only just bearable. Shame, really. [Aug 2007, p.98]
    • 57 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Utterly uninspired. [Sept 2007, p.84]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    A thoroughly unexciting experience. [Nov 2009, p.98]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    A lazy port of a GameCube game. [May 2008, p.72]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Unless you're gagging for a handheld strategy game and have already played Nintendo's offering, it's not worth taking the risk. [Jan 2009, p.99]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    If you've played more than a couple of games in your life you'll breeze through this without any hassle. [May 2009, p.88]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    A no-frills DSi take on Solitaire. It works fine but we want a bit more from a DSiWare game. [Dec 2009, p.98]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Layton need not be worried. [Jan 2010, p.80]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    A shallow experience. [Mar 2010, p.93]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    A charming game with limited but decent gameplay. [Mar 2010, p.93]
    • 43 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    It's rubbish fun. [Mar 2010, p.94]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    It's a laugh for a while but gets old quickly. [June 2010, p.97]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Great execution, but lacking in ideas. Avoid thumb cramp and take your money elsewhere. [June 2010, p.84]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    One annoyance is that you can't queue up tiles. [July 2010, p.87]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Great idea, lovely design, but badly let down by seriously poor controls. [Sept 2010, p.94]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Combat ultimately gets dull far too quickly. [Oct 2010, p.91]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Rattles off the backboard. [Oct 2010, p.95]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Once you've run out of game in Steel Diver, it simply sinks without a trace. [May 2011, p.98]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Certain sorts of gamer will dig this retro Metroidvania game, but make sure you're one of them before taking a bite. [July 2013, p.87]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Pick it up if you need a platforming fix. [July 2013, p.87]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    This is flaky, but undeniably fun on 3DS. [Feb 2014, p.90]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Vanguard is lacking in atmosphere and intensity - things step up for the final level but it's too late by then. Even without a multiplayer mode, "Call of Duty 3" beats this. [May 2007, p.80]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Flashy and dressed stylishly enough to earn a second glance, Bleach isn't worth more than an occasional fling. [Mar 2008, p.76]
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    One of the toughest videogames for some time. [Sept 2007, p.74]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    You'll often have to tediously meander through the game's various locations. [June 2008, p.88]
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Technically great, but it should have focused more on the action than the mini-games. [Sept 2009, p.85]
