    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.

    File this one under 'niche puzzler', if you've got the patience, that is. [Christmas 2008, p.103]

    Simple and effective, but it could have done with some more focused gameplay to make it really shine. [Sept 2008, p.94]

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

    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.
    • 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]

    If Cooking Mama 3 were a steak, it'd be a medium-cooked one. It's satisfying enough, but it's certainly not rare and it's not exactly well done.

    Once you've been through all the photos, there's no replay value to be had. [Oct 2009, p.89]

    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]

    It's fun in short bursts but this hasn't been updated enough to compensate for its rather shallow gameplay. [Mar 2009, p.83]

    Better than the Wii U version... It's beautiful and slightly boring. [May 2013, p.86]

    The game's instant appeal fades quickly. It's cheap but not particularly cheerful. [July 2008, p.86]

    Hardly ablaze. [Apr 2010, p.89]

    Some games don't work with a particular control method. This is one such game. If you want some decent spy action with a practical control system, get the GameCube version. [Feb 2007, p.83]

    Unforgiving. [Apr 2010, p.95]

    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.

    Not a bad update, but fairly pointless. Shaun White Snowboarding does all this with far more flair and panache. [Mar 2009, p.62]

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

    Fossil League is essentially a Pokemon clone that's pretty decent on the surface but lacks the depth, features and polish of the original monster-battlers. [May 2007, p.85]

    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]

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

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

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

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

    A charming game with limited but decent gameplay. [Mar 2010, p.93]

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

    It's a laugh for a while but gets old quickly. [June 2010, p.97]

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

    A shallow experience. [Mar 2010, p.93]

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