    Never steps outside of its comfort zone. [Oct 2013, p.89]

    • 43 Critic Score
    A shameless imitation of a game that's infinitely better in every department. [Oct 2010, p.94]

    A dull, confusing game. [Mar 2011, p.101]

    • 50 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Sleuthing is largely irrelevant as the characters keel over whatever you do. [Mar 2008, p.75]

    • 59 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Open Season is playable but you won't enjoy playing it. Its dull collecting scenarios and repetitive sound bites will drain your soul. Another bad movie tie-in. [Dec 2006, p.94]

    • 66 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Very, very dull. [Nov 2009, p.98]

    Utterly boring activities. [Feb 2011, p.90]

    • 42 Critic Score
    If you can believe it, this is possibly even worse than the diabolical "Spider-Man 3." [Christmas 2007, p.83]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • tbd Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    An idea's nice, but this one's been left to decay. [July 2013, p.86]

    • 60 Metascore

    While we can appreciate what Dust Strikers is trying to do, it just doesn't work. [Nov 2007, p.85]

    If you're after some boxing action on the Wii, it might be best to stick with Wii Sports for now and wait for Punch-Out!! This simply won't satisfy.

    It's what a bag of roast beef crisps is to a Sunday roast with all the trimmings. [Sept 2007, p.90]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 50 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    It tries to be different but falls flat on its face. It's repetitive, dull and we doubt that you'd see out the first hour. Avoid. [Sept 2008, p.93]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    Dull, and in many cases, incredibly annoying and frustrating. [July 2007, p.86]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • tbd Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    It looks basic and is over quicker than a Darlington FC season highlights DVD. [Mar 2010, p.95]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • tbd Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    An unnecessary update to last year's rubbish Olympics cash-in. [Oct 2009, p.84]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • tbd Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    Monotonous enough - and once you've finished that, you go back to the start to begin again as the 'dungeon' recreates itself. Hilariously, there's a second chapter to download, if you haven't had enough already...
    • 43 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    There's a certain amount of tension as the clock ticks, but moving the stylus up and down to mow lawns is both fiddly and a bit dull - you really need to keep all three mowers running at once to succeed. Add in a ravenous dog that wants to bite chunks out of your kids and the result is a gruelling, unforgiving... well, chore.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    It is, and always has been, a horribly vanilla platformer with very little soul to it. [Christmas 2008, p.103]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 49 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    Decent gameplay let down by a lack of any multiplayer or other modes whatsoever.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Will scratch an itch for a new strategy RPG, but expect the dull ache of disappointment as a side-effect. [Christmas 2012, p.111]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    We couldn't even play the Super Mario Bros. theme, and if you can't do that then there's no point. [Feb 2010, p.83]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Playing the same six mini-games 11 times isn't even remotely enjoyable, especially when you're paying 5 quid per mini-game. [May 2008, p.92]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Frustratingly inaccessible. [Jan 2011, p.87]

    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A tie-in that will only disappoint anyone hoping to play as a "real" MiB character. [Aug 2012, p.104]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The new best worst game ever. Briefly entertaining in a terrible B movie sort of way, but once that wears off this is just insulting.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A dull game that makes no use of the Wii U functionality. [Jan 2013, p.102]
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This is surely one of the most intensely frustrating games ever, but is not rewarding enough to be worthwhile. [May 2014, p.90]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Avoid like the plague. [Jan 2010, p.86]

    • 40 Critic Score
    Too pricey for our liking. [Christmas 2010, p.94]
