    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]

    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 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]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 42 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    You'll reach the top of the high score table easily, leaving little incentive to carry on playing. [Aug 2012, p.102]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Too many gimmicks spoil the broth; only the dedicated will reap any rewards. [Sept 2012, p.103]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A licensed game that manages to work on its own terms, but only just pulls it off. [Oct 2012, p.97]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Mechanics get tired quickly, the extra content feels tacked-on and even the best element - its presentation - is short-lived. A disappointment.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A potential cult hit betrayed by framerate issues and sluggish controls. [Jan 2013, p.110]
    • 44 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Look, we won't beat about the bush here. It's a game about tanks blowing up other tanks. What more do you want?
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    One for the game-starved only. [May 2013, p.78]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Does exactly what it sets out to do. We're just not entirely sure if that qualifies as a success. [Sept 2013, p.89]

    • 60 Critic Score
    There's fun to be had in the bits in which Nd Cube clearly enjoyed itself. It's by no means a party starter, but the nibbles are tasty enough to stick around for.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A botched attempt at survival horror, but not a bad little shooter, nonetheless. Wait for an eShop sale, perhaps. [Sept 2014, p.90]

    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fairly tepid music sim. [Christmas 2014, p.95]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 67 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    It feels more like you're controlling a puppet on strings rather than a Lotus Elise. [Christmas 2006, p.75]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    Fans of the series will be saddened at the lack of challenge the new scheme offers, and the lack of value. [June 2007, p.92]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 57 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    The classic mode is still decent, but shoddy visuals, no online mode and a basic quest give this a budget feel. [Apr 2008, p.90]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 65 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    You'll find the Wii Remote almost perfectly suited to lifting the toilet seat. [Sept 2007, p.86]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 59 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    Alas, you really are better off sticking with "Wii Sports." [May 2008, p.93]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 59 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    The main problem is all the extra pointless gestures you have to do during songs. [May 2009, p.89]

    • 59 Critic Score
    For borderline shovelware, Winter Sports actually looks pretty good. [Apr 2009, p.86]
