    Uno
    A decent take on the popular card game, but its lack of privacy defeats the purpose. [Jan 2010, p.86]

    Like Lady Zozo, its heart is in the right place, but its arms and legs are on backwards and inside out. Too monotonous to be entertaining.

    It's a bit dull. [Christmas 2013, p.89]

    Some decent ideas then, but poorly executed. [Oct 2008, p.97]

    Younger gamers and good artists might get more out of it but we'd much rather let Miyamoto draw out characters for us, thank you very much. [Nov 2008, p.103]

    Rygar may have been decent six years ago, but with no updates it's now dated and shoddy. [July 2009, p.86]

    This really isn't worth the money. [Mar 2009, p.89]

    It's a fun idea but can be played free online as Broken Picture Telephone. [June 2009, p.89]

    Limp shocks and dull content leave us with a lingering grudge towards Ju-On's creators. [Dec 2009, p.92]

    An interesting premise let down in execution, lacking the excitement of a true fantasy epic. [Aug 2009, p.96]

    For a game that's so starved of content, 1,000 Points is a bit hard to swallow. [Feb 2010, p.89]

    Your furball is far too floaty and controlling him becomes an exercise in anger management as he bumps into one obstacle after another, some of which are difficult to spot.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    Nostalgia-seekers need not apply: this is easily outdone by the 13-year-old game from which it is derived. A shame. [Christmas 2012, p.111]

    If you're going to compete with the likes of Mario and Sonic you need a smart plan. And if you have a smart plan you better make it work. Cookie & Cream is only half way there. [Dec 2007, p.87]

    It's not the worst mini-game collection on Wii. Just one of the worst on WiiWare. [Christmas 2009, p.102]

    • 50 Critic Score
    There's not a huge amount of content, the handling a little wobbly at times, and the tracks tend to get very familiar. [May 2010, p.85]
