    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]

    You'll reach the top of the high score table easily, leaving little incentive to carry on playing. [Aug 2012, p.102]

    Too many gimmicks spoil the broth; only the dedicated will reap any rewards. [Sept 2012, p.103]

    • 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

    One for the game-starved only. [May 2013, p.78]

    Does exactly what it sets out to do. We're just not entirely sure if that qualifies as a success. [Sept 2013, p.89]

    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]

    It feels more like you're controlling a puppet on strings rather than a Lotus Elise. [Christmas 2006, p.75]

    • 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]

    • 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]

    You'll find the Wii Remote almost perfectly suited to lifting the toilet seat. [Sept 2007, p.86]

    Alas, you really are better off sticking with "Wii Sports." [May 2008, p.93]

    The main problem is all the extra pointless gestures you have to do during songs. [May 2009, p.89]

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

    Michael Jackson fans will definitely get something out of The Experience but it's still disappointing.

    It does the trick, but there are other 20 Point games that offer a lot more content. [Feb 2011, p.97]

    Tedium for adults and generic distraction for the wee ones. [May 2011, p.103]

    QubicGames has made an average game and ruined thousands of GCSE English essays. Cheers, guys.

    A step back from the grand games we're used to. [Apr 2014, p.78]

    A nice puzzle game that you can play for a couple of hours but it soon becomes a chore. [Aug 2007, p.86]

    So basic and cut-down, THQ might as well have called it "My First SmackDown." [Christmas 2007, p.90]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 56 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    A competent but ultimately soulless and uninspired slash 'em up that doesn't push the DS to anywhere near its full capabilities. [Oct 2007, p.94]

    Shallow, repetitive and just plain odd, Harvest Fishing is definitely a catch and release. [July 2008, p.89]

    As a standalone game, Lego Rock Band is entertaining enough. It's fun for kids and should keep them entertained. When you look at the bigger picture and compare it to other versions of the game however, the complete lack of effort that's gone into making sure the Wii version offers similar value for money is nothing short of disgusting and lazy.

    There are much better Art Style games. Go for PiCOPiCT or KuBos over this instead. [Aug 2009, p.103]

    Plinky sounding instruments ruin the music while timing is off on the drums. Erk! [Oct 2009, p.88]
