    When it does work, Snapped! is a really fun experience, if a little short. [June 2009, p.87]

    • 60 Critic Score
    Jump, spin platform, jump again, flame baddie, repeat-to-fade. Yes, it's boring stuff. [Aug 2009, p.103]

    It's scrappy, inconsistent and boasts over-used motion controls, but there is some fun to be had here. [Aug 2009, p.86]

    A straight remake would have been better. [July 2009, p.60]

    It's only likely to prove its worth after a few weeks of play. [Jan 2010, p.80]

    Disappointingly short. [Feb 2010, p.83]

    Does about as much as you'd hope a notebook on the DSi could do. Fair enough. [Jan 2010, p.85]

    A two-trick pony. [Christmas 2009, p.98]

    It's just whack-a-mole but it does as much as you'd hope with something so limited. [Mar 2010, p.95]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fun for five minutes, but too samey. [June 2010, p.97]

    Top marks for effort, but Art Style: KuBos does isometric platforming better. [July 2010, p.94]

    With no multiplayer it is rather pointless. [July 2010, p.94]

    Two ancient arcade machines on one disc, and not much else. [Oct 2010, p.85]

    • 41 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    As movie tie-ins go this is a decent effort - but you'd need to have downed your body weight in butter-beer to claim that it didn't need a little more care, attention and (perhaps) experience in its creation.

    They're actually playable (for the most part) and don't feel rushed or broken. [Christmas 2010, p.91]

    Should entertain any kids after they've been to see the film. [Mar 2011, p.100]

    Wholly unremarkable. [Mar 2011, p.105]

    A great platformer over a decade ago, but this is showing its age now.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fun platformer, but the repetitive levels and clumsy progress tracking let it down.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Basic graphics, basic strategy game. It's not bad, but it's not brilliant either.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fun game, but one where you'll struggle to get your money's worth. [May 2011, p.88]

    Captain America is similar to the recent Wii Transformers game - it looks like someone was sick on a battlefield and it's too short.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's not a terrible game but it's not really impressive in any way whatsoever. [Sept 2011, p.99]

    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's so dated and slow it rarely feels exhilarating when you avoid a laser blast by millimetres and take out a boss.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a very good game in there, but it's smothered by dull, arbitrary exploring.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Cuter than a puppy knitting a little scarf, but very frustrating in some key areas. [May 2012, p.98]

    The effort has been put in here - it's very easy to make your own Tetris clone by selecting different blocks and a background with the stylus before sharing it with friends via StreetPass or QR codes.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's no reason for you to be playing this on 3DS, because the entire game is played on the bottom screen. [July 2012, p.99]
