    A charming, addictive and original addition to the growing DSiWare library. [Jan 2010, p.83]

    At times, it's one of the best-looking games on Wii - it swims in its own painterly style, and the Disney-grade animation lends every motion some real punch. If you look past its shortcomings as an admittedly un-epic platformer, you'll see that Epic Mickey is a deep game with explicit replay value and immense character.

    DQIX is tighter, but this is still an epic 40-plus hours of classic RPG gaming.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Gets the nod for its accessible controls and online gameplay. It's definitely more about multiplayer though. [Aug 2008, p.91]

    Capcom's lawyer sim continues to carve its idiosyncratic niche with sharp storytelling and impressively polished production values.

    Pac-Man Tilt is almost good enough to recommend alone. An ace collection. [Sept 2011, p.88]
    • 86 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It really makes you think and that, surely, is the point of a puzzle game. [Oct 2007, p.96]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's not the smartest Layton ever, but it's a huge improvement on Spectre's Call.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Familiar gameplay, but the finely crafted stories make this the best game in the series. [Nov 2008, p.86]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A fun second chapter, though not quite up to the standard of the first.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    An amazing amount of thought has gone into this; in an industry dominated by scattershot excess, this is a perfect exercise in honing a single strength.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    All you need to know is that if clever and cheap puzzle titles are your thing, you need to be downloading this one. [Nov 2008, p.103]

    • 85 Critic Score
    A brilliant and bloody rampage through recent Resi lore. High score chasers only. [July 2011, p.82]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Though it re-treads some of the same ground as the original, Pullblox World is more of what we loved on 3DS: challenging yet simple and a joy to play.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Get the hang of it and this will take over your life in ways that should probably be illegal. [Dec 2009, p.97]

    MySims Kingdom is all about the experience and it takes you on a charming journey where you get to meet and greet some brilliant characters. Yet, as an adventure, MySims is now in the company of the best that Wii has to offer and it just can't live with the likes of Galaxy and Twilight Princess. Still, provided you have some heart, this Kingdom packs more than enough personality to make it well worth a visit.

    If not a return to form for Sonic on DS, then it maintains the series' high handheld form.
    • 81 Metascore

    Great fun in short bursts, MadWorld is a quality title with buckets of gore, style and humour.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    We loved it, but we understand a lot of people might not. A niche experience then, but a great one. [Sept 2008, p.88]

    A cracking download that exemplifies everything great about WiiWare. [Sept 2009, p.94]
    • 84 Metascore

    If this had been a real NES game back in the day, it'd have been one of the best. [May 2010, p.88]

    It's brilliant. [Dec 2008, p.96]

    Picross 3D doesn't quite have the personality of its 2D predecessor but it's still a compelling puzzler. [Mar 2010, p.85]
    • 75 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The arcadey approach is an interesting diversion for the series and one that just about pays off. [Nov 2009, p.80]
    • 73 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    If you're after a nostalgia trip this is perfect. [Apr 2009, p.80]

    Probably the best superhero game ever made. If you're willing to fight innovations to see the game at its best, this is a huge slab of muscular adventuring.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    You'll struggle to find a tactical eShop game that offers more bang for your buck. [Aug 2014, p.76]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    A fantastically well put-together game hamstrung only by the inherent limitations of the sport itself. No other Wii U title offers such great value for money.

    • 84 Critic Score
    Zen captures the weight and feel of a pinball table as well as a game is ever likely to. [May 2014, p.84]
