    Look past the tilting troubles and Spin Cycle purifies Curve's original idea with its condensed puzzling. Plenty of plop for your buck, too.

    Retro's starting to pull the same trick it managed for Metroid - Tropical Freeze draws on decades-old ideas and punches them into excellent new shapes.

    After Shantae: Risky's Revenge, Aliens Infestation and Mighty Flip Champs, this is another excellent game from WayForward. Packed with original ideas but there just aren't enough stages.

    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]

    Despite the main game's brief length, Sonic Generations is fantastic fun. As long as you don't mind replaying the same levels to try to better your own records, which is a challenge in itself, this is an essential purchase for Sonic fans.

    It's not perfect but it's greatly improved, and with tons of game modes and tournaments in here, you'll get a solid round of golf out of this. Finally. [Nov 2008, p.102]
