    The ultimate Pokemon game, but only because it's a niftier update of Diamond and Pearl. [June 2009, p.72]
    • 83 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    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.

    For anyone interested in game or music design, this lets you be creative in a new way. Superb. [May 2010, p.78]

    • 94 Critic Score
    A fantastic music creation tool for DS owners and pro producers alike. [Dec 2008, p.92]

    Mildly disappointing port of an exceptional game that retains its charm.

    • 91 Critic Score
    Like some work of over-stimulated fanfiction with a Tony Stark-size budget, this plays out with all the excess, in-jokes and idiocy that entails. Wonderful.

    • 84 Critic Score
    Sure, its very nature dictates it's a dumbed down take on a sophisticated shooter but it's a classy, atmospheric and very exciting action title nonetheless, pipping Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and House Of The Dead to the Wii's best blaster crown.

    • 90 Critic Score
    Dark, terrifying and brilliantly exciting, Revelations is a triumph on 3DS. [Feb 2012, p.89]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's not the smartest Layton ever, but it's a huge improvement on Spectre's Call.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Delivers a deafening roar of an RPG adventure, but its bark is louder than its bite. The beast might've learned a few new tricks, but it can't hide its age.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's tough to balance clever, accessible and hard as diamond nails, but Stealth Inc. 2 does it - with a fantastic genre twist and buckets of charm to boot. [Dec 2014, p.82]

    If you're up for a challenge, this is a fantastic game. Like a lot of puzzle games it can be frustrating but it's worth the bother.

    • 87 Critic Score
    This tough-as-nails 2D racer offers countless hours of physics-based fun, especially in chaotic four-player mode.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Accessible beat-'em-up that puts on a dazzling display. Comic fans will love its use of DC, but shallow gameplay puts this in the 'luxury purchase' bracket.

    • 88 Critic Score
    It would be a crime if only hardcore gamers enjoyed this. The deepest game on DS, full stop.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The story is nothing new and the spaceship parts are a bit rubbish, but Lunar Knights is an action-packed quest with plenty of depth and non-stop battling. [Apr 2007, p.86]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is Rare back at their best. Original, absurd and utterly addictive, Viva Pinata is a riot. [Oct 2008, p.90]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    If only EA had pushed the bizarreness boat out a little further. Still, this is a fun little curio.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    While not without its faults, this is a fitting follow-up and a hugely satisfying experience. [Mar 2011, p.92]

    It's Space Invaders, done really well with killer future-retro graphics and gameplay. [Oct 2009, p.82]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    This is a game that everyone - young and old - can enjoy, even if it lacks the extra pizzazz of Pullblox. [Aug 2012, p.102]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A cracking download that exemplifies everything great about WiiWare. [Sept 2009, p.94]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Well, this is a real adventure. Few other eShop games are as ambitious or as intelligent about how to achieve their goals on the required smaller scale.

    • 86 Critic Score
    Funnier than "Episode One." If only that strategy bit wasn't quite so annoying. [Dec 2008, p.87]

    • 94 Critic Score
    A fantastic racer and the best online Nintendo game ever. [Apr 2008, p.58]

    For just 600 Points, you can't go wrong here. [Jan 2009, p.101]

    The best Madden yet. [Nov 2008, p.102]

    Its core is as exciting as ever and the new features justify trading in last year's edition.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    The genre-mixing is a nice enough idea but you end up with an exhausted puzzler with some pretty flimsy RPG elements tacked on. It all seems a little flat. [May 2007, p.90]

    • 70 Critic Score
    The game is undeniably lovingly made, but it's also disappointing brief. It's - yep - the fastest fun in the west.
