    Limp shocks and dull content leave us with a lingering grudge towards Ju-On's creators. [Dec 2009, p.92]

    If you're after more than ten minutes of distraction, look somewhere else. [May 2008, p.90]

    Put the time into it and it's rewarding, but it's an uphill battle with very little help. [Sept 2010, p.94]

    It's hard to care about villagers when they are all generic-faced repetition bots. [June 2014, p.86]

    It's not the worst mini-game collection on Wii. Just one of the worst on WiiWare. [Christmas 2009, p.102]

    • 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.

    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]

    Fun for the young 'uns, but serious gamers will be bored in minutes. [Nov 2009, p.103]

    If the offline community ever picks up, we'd expect to slap another 20% on that score. Until then, steer clear. [Christmas 2014, p.95]

    If you're patient this might impress, otherwise you'll be asleep in an hour. [Aug 2010, p.99]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Not terrible, but uninspired and lacking in any original ideas. [July 2012, p.98]

    A fun farming sim that suffers at the hands of ridiculous pricing. Only lunatics will hand over 30 notes for this.

    It does just about work, but it's not well-suited to the DS. [Feb 2011, p.90]

    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Could have been so much better but hasn't been fine-tuned well enough. [Oct 2010, p.95]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's slow, it's easy and it's repetitive. [Oct 2010, p.96]

    Looks fantastic but it plays like too many average games of movies. [Feb 2007, p.74]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 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]

    Just Dance is a facilitator, not a game. [Mar 2010, p.87]

    It's just a nice idea that doesn't work very well. [Dec 2008, p.98]

    • 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]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 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.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    It gets the gold medal for pig-headedness, at least. [Dec 2013, p.80]

    Tolerably mundane. [Oct 2013, p.81]

    • tbd Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Horrible to look at, has utterly bland levels and it's basically inferior in every way to the similar game "T-Rex Rumble," which is also available on DSiWare. [Mar 2011, p.105]

    If you must play Battle of the Bands then rent it - you'll be finished with it after a day. [July 2008, p.79]

    A good idea, wasted. [Jan 2014, p.75]

    Mind-numbingly boring. This is one call you should definitely send to answer phone.

    Poor show. [Sept 2010, p.89]

    Its challenge is too variable. [Feb 2012, p.105]
