    The nuts and bolts of the game remain exactly the same, but the branching storyline adds a whole new layer of depth. Splinter Cell fans will love this without being hugely surprised by it. [Dec 2006, p.84]

    Not the most original gameplay style but its looks and humour more than compensate.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    A joyous little platformer that show how WiiWare should be done, but it's all over too soon. [July 2008, p.80]

    It's an absolute hoot but if you're after a meaty challenge, you definitely won't find it here.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    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]

    An extremely rewarding tour of duty for the DS. [Jan 2008, p.76]

    It's currently the best racing simulation on the Wii by default but it's a good racer in its own right too. [Nov 2008, p.80]

    Lots to recommend about this update of the '08 game. Shame there's not more of it though.

    For those who fancy some non-serious gridiron action it's worth a look. [Nov 2009, p.98]

    Proof that fun games can come out of very simple ideas. [Mar 2011, p.103]

    It's not motion-sensing genius but Metal Slug doesn't have to be. It's the craziest, most action-packed shooter ever and there's room for games like this outside the Virtual Console. [Apr 2007, p.87]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A brilliantly tongue in cheek take on the first three movies. [Aug 2008, p.100]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 76 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    It's a tad repetitive, but easily one of the best Alien releases on a Nintendo system.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A brilliant premise which offers hours of fun, but ultimately falls foul of its own ambition. [Nov 2009, p.92]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    With a few tweaks it could've been a classic. [Jan 2011, p.82]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Link up with other DS owners and this is essential. [Jan 2008, p.88]

    The DS once again proves the perfect platform for the real time strategy genre. [Sept 2007, p.88]

    A classic puzzler, but it's a shame it lacks the features of other versions of the game. [Christmas 2010, p.92]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A decent remake and one worth the attention of puzzle fans everywhere. [Nov 2008, p.104]

    • 82 Critic Score
    A flawed but very impressive romp that really puts the DS through its paces. [July 2008, p.78]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Hugely addictive, but that price is nothing short of scandalous. [Apr 2010, p.92]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A must-buy for any newcomers. [Christmas 2007, p.78]

    • 69 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The woeful AI and a few clumsy sections detract from what's otherwise a really enjoyable arcade-style experience. But it looks and sounds great and there are enough unlockables to warrant a second and third playthrough.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A smart, addictive strategy offering that's among DSiWare's very finest games. [Christmas 2009, p.102]

    • 82 Critic Score
    The third chapter is just as entertaining as the first two, even if it's a little short. [Dec 2009, p.97]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 79 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Insanely hard retro magic. [Apr 2010, p.90]

    As great as it is, we can't believe we've waited two years for this. [June 2008, p.80]

    • 82 Critic Score
    A great setting and lots of top shocks - Cursed Mountain is chilling in every sense. [Oct 2009, p.78]
    • 73 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    An essential purchase at a great price. As long as you don't own Drill Spirits, this is superb. [June 2010, p.94]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The sort of unique, simple and fun game the Wii needs and does so well. But frustrating hitches and sub-standard graphics tarnish what could have been a classic. [Apr 2007, p.72]
