    The lack of any online features is a crying shame, but for 3D racing it's fantastic. [Apr 2011, p.86]

    This tough-as-nails 2D racer offers countless hours of physics-based fun, especially in chaotic four-player mode.

    Dillon's Rolling Western is expensive but this tower defence game is also one of the best 3D games available in the eShop.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Builds slightly messier puzzles on the Pullblox's simple foundations, but still manages to deliver hours of outstanding spatial conundrums. Easily one of eShop's best.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    There are elements we can't defend, such as the dated visuals, or the limited soundtrack, but taken as a whole, Devil Survivor Overclocked is a huge, ambitious game that works perfectly on its own terms.

    • 87 Critic Score
    A 2D platformer with a heavy focus on swearing fairies and religious themes should not be this good. That's the game's last contradiction: it really is.

    It looks good, it plays good, it probably even tastes good. You fingers will dance across the pad like tiny digital ballerinas as you suplex your way to victory. [Sept 2014, p.86]

    Still the best WWII shooter around and the Wii Remote and Nunchuk serve to enhance the experience. With a multiplayer mode it would have been pure gold. [Christmas 2006, p.78]
