    A technically decent WiiWare game, but it's nothing remarkable. Not essential. [Mar 2010, p.94]

    • 63 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    A nice bit of nostalgia for oldies, but doesn't quite have the same playability these days. [Mar 2010, p.93]

    Unforgiving. [Apr 2010, p.95]

    You don't get the resistance bands either, so if you don't have the first game you're at a disadvantage. [Feb 2010, p.83]

    As a clone of Elite Beat Agents, this does a half-decent job. [Jan 2011, p.81]

    It'll appeal to fans, but this by-the-books platformer takes far too long to warm up. [Aug 2011, p.98]

    • 62 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    The lengthy career mode means you'll get your money's worth, but the iffy putting and lack of characters means this golf game still has a fair way to go (sorry) to become one of the genre's masters. [Oct 2011, p.97]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    The Run is really good when the racing is kept simple, but unfortunately it rarely is. Unfortunately, the overall feeling you take away is frustration.

    Rare Pokemon fail to mask the tedium in this fleetingly entertaining aside. [Dec 2012, p.106]

    The mixture of Sega and Sumo should have made for a game that was as accomplished as it was nostalgic. Instead, it's just a bit flat.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    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.
    • 61 Metascore

    The rendering of the chess pieces is superb. [June 2014, p.89]

    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]

    Between the dog-eared visuals and repetitive gameplay, it's only just bearable. Shame, really. [Aug 2007, p.98]

    Utterly uninspired. [Sept 2007, p.84]

    A lazy port of a GameCube game. [May 2008, p.72]

    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]

    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]

    A no-frills DSi take on Solitaire. It works fine but we want a bit more from a DSiWare game. [Dec 2009, p.98]

    Layton need not be worried. [Jan 2010, p.80]

    Great execution, but lacking in ideas. Avoid thumb cramp and take your money elsewhere. [June 2010, p.84]

    One annoyance is that you can't queue up tiles. [July 2010, p.87]

    Great idea, lovely design, but badly let down by seriously poor controls. [Sept 2010, p.94]
