    An interesting premise let down in execution, lacking the excitement of a true fantasy epic. [Aug 2009, p.96]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    For a game that's so starved of content, 1,000 Points is a bit hard to swallow. [Feb 2010, p.89]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    Frustrating movements. [June 2010, p.97]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    Sometimes you'll receive a fraction of your rightful score. [June 2011, p.89]
    • 47 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    Your furball is far too floaty and controlling him becomes an exercise in anger management as he bumps into one obstacle after another, some of which are difficult to spot.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    Nostalgia-seekers need not apply: this is easily outdone by the 13-year-old game from which it is derived. A shame. [Christmas 2012, p.111]
    • 66 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    You play as Spider-Man, but never feel like him. [May 2013, p.74]
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Looks fantastic but it plays like too many average games of movies. [Feb 2007, p.74]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If you're going to compete with the likes of Mario and Sonic you need a smart plan. And if you have a smart plan you better make it work. Cookie & Cream is only half way there. [Dec 2007, p.87]
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If you're after more than ten minutes of distraction, look somewhere else. [May 2008, p.90]
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Fun for the young 'uns, but serious gamers will be bored in minutes. [Nov 2009, p.103]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Just Dance is a facilitator, not a game. [Mar 2010, p.87]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's not the worst mini-game collection on Wii. Just one of the worst on WiiWare. [Christmas 2009, p.102]
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There's not a huge amount of content, the handling a little wobbly at times, and the tracks tend to get very familiar. [May 2010, p.85]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If you're patient this might impress, otherwise you'll be asleep in an hour. [Aug 2010, p.99]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Put the time into it and it's rewarding, but it's an uphill battle with very little help. [Sept 2010, p.94]
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Could have been so much better but hasn't been fine-tuned well enough. [Oct 2010, p.95]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Not terrible, but uninspired and lacking in any original ideas. [July 2012, p.98]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A fun farming sim that suffers at the hands of ridiculous pricing. Only lunatics will hand over 30 notes for this.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Never has a game veered so aggressively from 80 per cent-rated fun to 30 per cent-rated horror, but the same could be said of the 360/PS3 original. Wii U comes with the added sting of having all the multiplayer and co-op options hacked out, leaving only a samey survival mode (fight waves of Nazis in repurposed levels) to pad out a brisk campaign.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's hard to care about villagers when they are all generic-faced repetition bots. [June 2014, p.86]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    A weak hide-and-seek game that's as laborious as it is devoid of fun. [Feb 2009, p.49]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    It's just a nice idea that doesn't work very well. [Dec 2008, p.98]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Awkward to play, hard to look at, difficult to control and socially neutered. We're not sold on Splinter Cell.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Tolerably mundane. [Oct 2013, p.81]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    It gets the gold medal for pig-headedness, at least. [Dec 2013, p.80]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    If you must play Battle of the Bands then rent it - you'll be finished with it after a day. [July 2008, p.79]
    • 46 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Sorry, Sega, but your luck with movie licenses just isn't getting any better. [Sept 2008, p.101]
    • 39 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    It all falls down because it's just not fun to play in any way, shape or form. [Oct 2008, p.99]
    • 47 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Even as rabid Pokemon fans we're really struggling to see the point of My Pokemon Ranch. [Aug 2008, p.103]
