    It's cute, it's harmless and kids will enjoy it but it's never going to change the world. [Mar 2010, p.95]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Lacks any real impact. [Jan 2011, p.80]
    • 73 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    There's still a lot of character inside this tiny cart, and it's got a whole lot of game, too, but if you're after the definitive Plants vs. Zombies you won't find it inside this hugely reduced and substandard port. [May 2011, p.102]

    • 58 Critic Score
    This was an iPhone game and the controls can be fiddly. You might put up with that in multiplayer but not during a bombardment...
    • 54 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    A brilliant idea that works well, but it's far too short to offer value for money. [June 2012, p.106]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Nano Assault isn't awful but flying around the beautiful Nano cosmos is nowhere near as thrilling as it should be. [Jan 2013, p.111]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Medicine that most of us can do without. [March 2014, p.82]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    Limited, dated and very boring, only die hard fans and young kids will find any fun here. [July 2008, p.95]
    • 40 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    A bland, lackluster shooter. [Christmas 2009, p.102]
    • 59 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    Reasonably enjoyable while it lasts. [June 2009, p.88]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    It could be so much more if the controls were more forgiving. Don't bother. [Aug 2009, p.102]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    The difficulty curve will turn you off long before this starts to get interesting. [Dec 2009, p.99]
    • 47 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    Very average indeed. [Apr 2010, p.93]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    Libera Wing didn't just fall out of the ugly tree, it landed on an ugly trampoline and bounced into the centre of Uglytown. [June 2010, p.97]
    • 40 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    Too basic. [July 2010, p.95]
    • 57 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    A potentially great title let down by a terrible camera and one of the most bewildering controller decisions we can remember. Get the Wii version instead.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    The genre-mixing is a nice enough idea but you end up with an exhausted puzzler with some pretty flimsy RPG elements tacked on. It all seems a little flat. [May 2007, p.90]
    • 63 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    The game begins to fall apart as soon as you throw any real criticism at it. [Feb 2008, p.80]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    Doesn't have the mettle for a sustained run in the first team. [Christmas 2009, p.98]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    Shows promise, but the combat hasn't been fine-tuned carefully enough. [Apr 2012, p.94]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    There are two games here: the one you've been led to hope for and the one you play. It's not so much a valiant effort as a nice idea that never got used.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    A massive disappointment. Play with the analogue stick and it's a great golf game, but try to use the Remote and you're in for a rough ride. [Apr 2007, p.83]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Samurai Warriors will hurt you in ways that you've never been hurt before. [Apr 2008, p.80]
    • 54 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    It's all a bit drab thanks and not much fun at all. [Sept 2008, p.98]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Fun in very short bursts, but this is too frustrating and too flawed to be enjoyed for any longer. [June 2009, p.80]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    A missed opportunity to right the first game's wrongs. A by-the-numbers platforming experience.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Far too easy to complete. [Apr 2010, p.95]
    • 47 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Fun while it lasts, but you can finish the whole game before your bottle of Butterbeer gets flat.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Scrolling levels are better as you need to concentrate and rely on reactions, but this isn't one we'd recommend seeing through to the end. [Aug 2012, p.103]
    • 61 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Not bad, but you could get the same thing for 69p elsewhere. [Christmas 2012, p.110]
