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

    A fun second chapter, though not quite up to the standard of the first.
    • 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]

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

    A great expansion for the DS game. [June 2010, p.94]

    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.

    If not a return to form for Sonic on DS, then it maintains the series' high handheld form.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    DQIX is tighter, but this is still an epic 40-plus hours of classic RPG gaming.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A brilliant and bloody rampage through recent Resi lore. High score chasers only. [July 2011, p.82]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Pac-Man Tilt is almost good enough to recommend alone. An ace collection. [Sept 2011, p.88]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Mildly disappointing port of an exceptional game that retains its charm.
    • 66 Metascore

    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 the smartest Layton ever, but it's a huge improvement on Spectre's Call.
    • 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.

    Toki Tori 2 features puzzling of the highest order in a world that could afford to be a little more user-friendly. Be brave and give it a go.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Capcom's lawyer sim continues to carve its idiosyncratic niche with sharp storytelling and impressively polished production values.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Goodbye, old friend: it's been one hell of a ride, albeit a very familiar one. Azran Legacy represents a rock-solid end to a Nintendo handheld champion.
    • 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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The fourth Micro Machines game does the franchise proud with a host of cars, some very inventive tracks and multiplayer gameplay more addictive than chocolate milk. [Nov 2006, p.80]

    It's action-packed, has an involving story and loads of customisation options. [June 2007, p.80]

    Okay, so Excite Truck skips a few beats in the way of options and multiplayer modes. But at its core it's a fantastic racer with stunning speed and awesome gameplay. [Feb 2007, p.58]

    Loads to do, tons of moves, great action and numerous characters to play with. This is a vast game that has plenty of Dragon Ball Z characters and plots for the fans. [Mar 2007, p.82]

    A deep, engrossing tactical-strategy RPG weighing in with several weeks of play. [Nov 2007, p.93]

    There's no fighting game quite like Dragon Ball Z, and BT3 plays brilliantly. [Feb 2008, p.78]

    Konami's willingness to put the Wii's controls to good use without making a gimmick-laden game pays off once again - Dewy is great fun, if slightly infuriating for all the right reason. [Dec 2007, p.78]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    As freeform a game as you're likely to get, offering depth beyond measure. [Jan 2008, p.80]

    Original, polished and heaps of fun, this is one of the finest shooters available on the DS.
    • 75 Metascore

    Classy RPG gaming for a younger crowd. Buy it for your kid brother, then borrow it when no-one's looking. [Nov 2008, p.88]

    Bar some tiny niggles, it's easily the best wrestling game since the N64 glory days.
