    Does about as much as you'd hope a notebook on the DSi could do. Fair enough. [Jan 2010, p.85]

    Fun for five minutes, but too samey. [June 2010, p.97]

    With no multiplayer it is rather pointless. [July 2010, p.94]

    A botched attempt at survival horror, but not a bad little shooter, nonetheless. Wait for an eShop sale, perhaps. [Sept 2014, p.90]

    The effort has been put in here - it's very easy to make your own Tetris clone by selecting different blocks and a background with the stylus before sharing it with friends via StreetPass or QR codes.

    The classic mode is still decent, but shoddy visuals, no online mode and a basic quest give this a budget feel. [Apr 2008, p.90]

    Michael Jackson fans will definitely get something out of The Experience but it's still disappointing.

    A step back from the grand games we're used to. [Apr 2014, p.78]

    Fans of the series will be saddened at the lack of challenge the new scheme offers, and the lack of value. [June 2007, p.92]

    It feels more like you're controlling a puppet on strings rather than a Lotus Elise. [Christmas 2006, p.75]

    You'll find the Wii Remote almost perfectly suited to lifting the toilet seat. [Sept 2007, p.86]

    QubicGames has made an average game and ruined thousands of GCSE English essays. Cheers, guys.

    The main problem is all the extra pointless gestures you have to do during songs. [May 2009, p.89]

    Alas, you really are better off sticking with "Wii Sports." [May 2008, p.93]

    It does the trick, but there are other 20 Point games that offer a lot more content. [Feb 2011, p.97]

    For borderline shovelware, Winter Sports actually looks pretty good. [Apr 2009, p.86]

    Tedium for adults and generic distraction for the wee ones. [May 2011, p.103]

    Buggy and samey, but it has a charm that'll keep you interested for a few minutes. [Mar 2011, p.104]

    It's frustrating to see such smooth controls wasted in a game that doesn't know how to keep you playing. [Aug 2014, p.87]

    Shallow, repetitive and just plain odd, Harvest Fishing is definitely a catch and release. [July 2008, p.89]

    Lacks any real impact. [Jan 2011, p.80]

    An undeniably unique concept is all but irretrievably marred by some stern presentation and a lack of basic utilities. [May 2014, p.90]

    It's cute, it's harmless and kids will enjoy it but it's never going to change the world. [Mar 2010, p.95]

    Short, but never quite sweet, Wii U's first budget game does exactly what you'd expect, good and bad. [May 2014, p.91]

    Nano Assault isn't awful but flying around the beautiful Nano cosmos is nowhere near as thrilling as it should be. [Jan 2013, p.111]

    As a standalone game, Lego Rock Band is entertaining enough. It's fun for kids and should keep them entertained. When you look at the bigger picture and compare it to other versions of the game however, the complete lack of effort that's gone into making sure the Wii version offers similar value for money is nothing short of disgusting and lazy.

    This was an iPhone game and the controls can be fiddly. You might put up with that in multiplayer but not during a bombardment...
    • 55 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    A nice puzzle game that you can play for a couple of hours but it soon becomes a chore. [Aug 2007, p.86]
