    Not an essential purchase, by any means, but definitely one of the better puzzle-related offerings out there for the DS. [Christmas 2008, p.102]

    A good attempt at a tower defence game but it just lacks that little extra magic.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    If only EA had pushed the bizarreness boat out a little further. Still, this is a fun little curio.

    Lacks the oddball charm of the original. [May 2014, p.81]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A brave attempt at combining two very different types of gameplay. [Nov 2007, p.84]

    • 64 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    It'd be the finest licensed game ever if it wasn't ruined by the anti-climactic ending and an atrocious camera. Sadly, all the humour in the world can't really fix that. [Christmas 2007, p.70]

    Using the plastic rod-and-reel peripheral makes you look like an utter arse. [Christmas 2008, p.100]

    • 69 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A solid strategy offering, but one that's not particularly accessible. [May 2010, p.90]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 70 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Surprisingly deep given how in-depth and graphically impressive it is. [Sept 2010, p.93]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 58 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A surprisingly good adaptation of the home console game, with decent graphics and some interesting uses of the touch screen. Not a classic but we wouldn't object to a sequel. [Christmas 2006, p.72]

    One mini-game made us laugh out loud as our cow did an MC Hammer dance. [Jan 2007, p.83]

    A fun card game with the added bonus of single-card multiplayer. Nice job. [Feb 2010, p.86]

    • 74 Critic Score
    Props to EA for delivering a solid, entertaining game. Top of the class. [July 2010, p.92]

    More of the same, but with pirates instead of Jedi. Fun for fans of the series.

    It's a nice little pool game. [Dec 2008, p.99]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Great for fans, hard work for everyone - it's not bad, just really heavy going. [Feb 2009, p.80]

    Appreciate Twin Strike for what it is - good, clean budget-priced fun - and you won't be disappointed. [Nov 2008, p.105]

    It's shorter than we'd like, but completists will get their money's worth. [July 2011, p.92]

    • 76 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Much better value than the straight NES port. [June 2009, p.88]

    It looks cute and sounds great, but it takes too long to grasp its mechanics. [Oct 2010, p.93]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A solid and well-made example of what we want to see in a DS racer. Juiced 2 impresses on first play but doesn't leave a unique lasting impression to make it a must buy. [Dec 2007, p.80]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A brilliant idea, handled carelessly. Some of these oldies are far from golden, but with some fine-tuning, a sequel would be very welcome indeed.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Slick, polished and surprisingly varied for a movie tie-in, this is one piece of blockbuster merchandise that's worth checking out. Just don't buy it for an easily aggravated child. [Oct 2006, p.94]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Simple fun. [Aug 2011, p.91]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    One of the better games in the series but yet another lazy port by Capcom. [July 2010, p.92]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 76 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Succeeds in offering something genuinely different, but it's still snooze-inducing.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    A dreamy platformer. [Nov 2013, p.81]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 69 Metascore

    Freedom and individuality. [Apr 2010, p.89]

    The best adaptation of an animated movie we've seen in a long time. [Sept 2007, p.77]

    • 73 Critic Score
    A decent blast for younger gamers and we like that NERF gun!
