    Feels vintage and fresh at the same time. [Christmas 2010, p.56]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Easily the best fighter game on a Nintendo handheld and a must for fans of the series. [Apr 2011, p.75]

    Rayman games may usually prompt little more than a shrug of indifference, but don't dismiss Origins. It's a top quality platformer from start to finish, a dazzling showcase for Ubisoft Montpellier's artistic talents, and one of the best Wii games of this (or any other) year.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    It feels far bigger than the console upon which it appears, it's deeper than most home console titles and more content-packed than any other 3DS game yet released.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Better than Black and White, but lacking their freshness. A cracking swansong.

    Better than Black and White, but lacking their freshness. A cracking swansong.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    A huge, almost constantly entertaining game. Brash, soulful and clever, it's astonishing that a title on a yearly schedule came out this meaty.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Like some work of over-stimulated fanfiction with a Tony Stark-size budget, this plays out with all the excess, in-jokes and idiocy that entails. Wonderful.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There's so much depth and richness to the experience. [June 2007, p.78]

    If ever there was a game to get gamers and non-gamers playing together, this is it. Addictive gameplay, online play and more vareity than Noah's Ark make this a surprising must-have title. [Nov 2006, p.84]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The ideal way to get into Wii gaming. It's funny, simple and approachable, and gamers and non-gamers alike should get something out of it. [Christmas 2006, p.62]

    For the first Pro Evo on the DS it's a fantastic achievement. If you're after a portable football fix it's a must-have. [Mar 2007, p.72]

    Anniversary is the best game in the series by far. [Christmas 2007, p.72]

    • 86 Metascore

    Gripes about the lacklustre visuals and unwanted gameplay tweaks aside, Guitar Hero III is truly great, even if it's somewhat harder than we were expecting. [Christmas 2007, p.75]

    Easily the best football game on a Nintendo system. It takes a while to get used to the new controls but once you get your head round them, they become second nature. [Mar 2008, p.58]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A must-play for Final Fantasy veterans. It won't gain any new fans though. [Oct 2008, p.80]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is Rare back at their best. Original, absurd and utterly addictive, Viva Pinata is a riot. [Oct 2008, p.90]

    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It may be 17 years old, but this may just be the best RPG on the DS. You need this.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A massive handheld RPG crafted with incredible attention to detail and a real sense of fun. [Apr 2010, p.86]
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Not so much a sequel as the Cube version with new features, but still essential for anyone happy to start again.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The ultimate retro game and a huge challenge. At around 7 quid, this is essential. [Dec 2008, p.82]

    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A great end to a great series - we hope there's more but if there isn't, at least it's gone out on a high. [Feb 2009, p.86]

    A great choice to lead the Wii MotionPlus charge, combining summertime fun with great gameplay.
