    Perhaps the lowest example of not knowing when to give up. [Apr 2010, p.89]

    Feels extremely basic and devoid of depth. [July 2010, p.95]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 42 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    A game rendered so easy by the needs of its target market, that it's dead on arrival. Consider this a Surf eulogy. [Sept 2013, p.89]

    • 55 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    The original's good ideas are distorted in an apparent attempt to justify a price tag. [Nov 2012, p.98]

    • 44 Critic Score
    The skateboard controller looks the part but doesn't work and seems to hate the game it was designed for. It may yet fall to another game to get the best out of it.

    Very basic. [Feb 2012, p.100]

    It just isn't that fun to play. [Jan 2010, p.87]

    The whole thing gets repetitive very quickly. [May 2010, p.91]

    Heartbreakingly awful. [Feb 2009, p.84]

    It's pleasant enough, but this'll be over long before your couch has even warmed up. [Christmas 2010, p.94]

    Weird. [Sept 2010, p.97]

    Never steps outside of its comfort zone. [Oct 2013, p.89]

    A shameless imitation of a game that's infinitely better in every department. [Oct 2010, p.94]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 41 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    A dull, confusing game. [Mar 2011, p.101]

    • 50 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Sleuthing is largely irrelevant as the characters keel over whatever you do. [Mar 2008, p.75]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 59 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Open Season is playable but you won't enjoy playing it. Its dull collecting scenarios and repetitive sound bites will drain your soul. Another bad movie tie-in. [Dec 2006, p.94]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 66 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Very, very dull. [Nov 2009, p.98]

    Utterly boring activities. [Feb 2011, p.90]

    If you can believe it, this is possibly even worse than the diabolical "Spider-Man 3." [Christmas 2007, p.83]

    • 42 Critic Score
    An idea's nice, but this one's been left to decay. [July 2013, p.86]

    While we can appreciate what Dust Strikers is trying to do, it just doesn't work. [Nov 2007, p.85]

    If you're after some boxing action on the Wii, it might be best to stick with Wii Sports for now and wait for Punch-Out!! This simply won't satisfy.

    It's what a bag of roast beef crisps is to a Sunday roast with all the trimmings. [Sept 2007, p.90]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 50 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    It tries to be different but falls flat on its face. It's repetitive, dull and we doubt that you'd see out the first hour. Avoid. [Sept 2008, p.93]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    Dull, and in many cases, incredibly annoying and frustrating. [July 2007, p.86]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • tbd Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    It looks basic and is over quicker than a Darlington FC season highlights DVD. [Mar 2010, p.95]

    • tbd Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    An unnecessary update to last year's rubbish Olympics cash-in. [Oct 2009, p.84]

    • tbd Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    Monotonous enough - and once you've finished that, you go back to the start to begin again as the 'dungeon' recreates itself. Hilariously, there's a second chapter to download, if you haven't had enough already...
    • 43 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    There's a certain amount of tension as the clock ticks, but moving the stylus up and down to mow lawns is both fiddly and a bit dull - you really need to keep all three mowers running at once to succeed. Add in a ravenous dog that wants to bite chunks out of your kids and the result is a gruelling, unforgiving... well, chore.
