    A handful of niggles, but not enough to stop this from being more accessible and enjoyable than its predecessor.

    Sure, its very nature dictates it's a dumbed down take on a sophisticated shooter but it's a classy, atmospheric and very exciting action title nonetheless, pipping Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and House Of The Dead to the Wii's best blaster crown.

    With great controls and an involving plot, this is one title that's well worth conquering. [July 2009, p.90]

    Weapons are more numerous and better balanced this time. [May 2010, p.82]

    The arcadey approach is an interesting diversion for the series and one that just about pays off. [Nov 2009, p.80]

    It's fairly easy but still makes for a pretty, touching story. [July 2009, p.74]

    The kick up the backside the series needed. It's a little low on laughs but great fun nonetheless.

    • 84 Critic Score
    A great update to an already addictive game, at an affordable price. [Nov 2009, p.103]

    A really taxing, enjoyable romp that's only let down by some irritating combat.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Charming, clever and compelling all at once, this game does everything right.

    Picross 3D doesn't quite have the personality of its 2D predecessor but it's still a compelling puzzler. [Mar 2010, p.85]

    A good value Punch-Out! clone. [June 2010, p.95]

    Lacklustre cats and familiar pooches, but still an engaging and adorable pet sim. [Apr 2011, p.102]

    One of the better Final Fantasy games, FFV improves upon the Job system but doesn't match the storyline "FFIV" or "FFVI". It's still one hell of a handheld adventure though. [Apr 2007, p.90]

    Conduit 2 is a huge improvement over the original game. It's still not without its problems, such as its awkward controls and the B-movie production values but it's still well worth a look if you're a fan of first-person shooters.

    As long as you aren't interested in motion controls, it's the best tennis game on Wii. [June 2011, p.100]

    Like many NES games, TwinBee is very difficult and there are no continues - but it never seems unfair so even if you're getting pummeled, you'll feel like going back in for more punishment.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    A generally fantastic series of games let down by some very shoddy ports.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    An addictive, lovingly created rhythm game and a treat for Final Fantasy fans, though it can get a bit repetitive at times.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Vibrant combat and lush Disney worlds atone for the dud dual-character idea. [Aug 2012, p.97]

    Probably the best superhero game ever made. If you're willing to fight innovations to see the game at its best, this is a huge slab of muscular adventuring.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    A fantastically well put-together game hamstrung only by the inherent limitations of the sport itself. No other Wii U title offers such great value for money.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Despite sometimes feeling like a dry run for LEGO City: Undercover, this is rescued (aptly) by some brilliant heroes and top DC affection.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    A classy, thoughtful update that packages the best of the previous Wii Fit games with some ace new mini-games. A genuinely fun flab-shifter. [Jan 2014, p.84]

    You'll struggle to find a tactical eShop game that offers more bang for your buck. [Aug 2014, p.76]

    It's great for Hawk's newbies but its stripped down nature won't please veterans who'll want more open worlds to explore. [Christmas 2006, p.86]

    The story is nothing new and the spaceship parts are a bit rubbish, but Lunar Knights is an action-packed quest with plenty of depth and non-stop battling. [Apr 2007, p.86]

    It's certainly not the most subtle game in the world but if you're old enough to play it Scarface is a joy. It's a shame it looks like it was made five years ago, though. [Aug 2007, p.84]
