    Fall for it and you'll fall hard, but its challenges left our fun glands untickled. [Jan 2014, p.82]

    • 65 Critic Score
    It's full of bluster, but it's not going to provide hours of friendship. [Dec 2009, p.95]

    Feels like more bitter pill than it should. [Dec 2012, p.109]

    While far from perfect, there are more than enough ideas here for Upper Byte to build into something special. For the time being, wait for an eShop sale. [Apr 2014, p.80]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 58 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Vibrant, simple stuff aimed squarely at a generation who know Pac as a superpowered teenage hero, rather than the characterless, quip-free globe of old. [May 2014, p.89]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 80 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A fun puzzler, but why should fans spend more money on a game they already played? Stingy stuff. [Jan 2013, p.111]

    • 62 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Though the tempo is rather tricky, Fun Unit's offering takes the cube route to a decent eShop game. [June 2014, p.89]

    • 59 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    We're putting our foot down. Please Sega, no more 10 year old ports. [Apr 2008, p.81]

    • 59 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Perfect for some and hellish for others. You know the phrase "know your audience"? Make sure you know you're that audience before getting this.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    There's no real reason to keep playing beyond the initial weird-factor. [March 2013, p.96]

    Go for Starship Patrol instead. [Sept 2010, p.97]

    If you are prepared to put up with the so-so presentation, Bobby Carrot Forever is a decent puzzler with 60 tricky levels.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    What it lacks in charm it (almost) makes up for in tension as you only have three lives. [June 2012, p.109]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • tbd Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    An adequate platformer, but we're warning you, wear sunglasses. [Nov 2009, p.103]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A potentially great game ruined by control issues. Stick with Little King's Story for your RTS adventure kicks.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    With 3D visuals that are reminiscent of Pilotwings Resort, Fun Fun Minigolf Touch looks lovely and it does live up to its name at first, even if you probably won't want to play it for more than a few hours.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The relatively high price is a bit of a turn-off. [Sept 2012, p.107]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • tbd Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Three or four-year-olds will have a ball, but there's nothing here for Contra ReBirth fans. [Dec 2009, p.99]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 66 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A robust package that oozes colour and charm, but lacks the variety necessary to maintain excitement and appeal beyond its dedicated fan base. [Sept 2014, p.88]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 62 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    It's technically impressive(ish), but not as fun or funny as the Wii U game. Younger gamers who haven't played GTA will still enjoy it, though.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    It's hard for a game to win hearts when it keeps kicking you in the shins. [Aug 2014, p.82]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 49 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    A slight, but serviceable spin-off that has bags of energy, if little else. [Nov 2013, p.80]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    The Munchables is a nifty little game, but it's all over far too quickly for us to recommend it as a must-have title.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    A great idea in theory but in practice it's just not as much fun being the good guy.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    It looks great, but you'll end up feeling like a mindless zombie playing it. [June 2010, p.96]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 70 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    It's fun, but for 30 quid, it's no bargain. [Apr 2009, p.87]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 70 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    A classic Saito number that is interesting, compelling and inevitably, just a little too odd to recommend to everyone.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    Mama may be smiling away on the box but you certainly won't be if you buy this after playing her old games.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    Virtually identical to the WiiWare version with the added bonus of not letting other players see your cards. [Jan 2010, p.87]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 66 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    As it is, it's just an average port of a game that's just about hanging onto the legacy of some great game design from a few years ago. A little bit more love next time, please.
