    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.

    • 88 Critic Score
    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.

    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.

    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]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Funnier than "Episode One." If only that strategy bit wasn't quite so annoying. [Dec 2008, p.87]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    A fantastic racer and the best online Nintendo game ever. [Apr 2008, p.58]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    For just 600 Points, you can't go wrong here. [Jan 2009, p.101]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    The best Madden yet. [Nov 2008, p.102]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    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]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game is undeniably lovingly made, but it's also disappointing brief. It's - yep - the fastest fun in the west.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A fantastic experience from start to finish. It is a game that truly expands what narrative video games can be capable of, and does so with a engrossing story that draws players in until the very end, all six of them.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    A treat of a game that's as creative and funky as it is new and interesting - we can't recommend it enough. [Nov 2008, p.77]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great strategy game that makes up for basic graphics with addictive gameplay. [Mar 2010, p.90]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the toughest Mega Man games yet. A great download for hardcore retroheads. [May 2010, p.86]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Hugely detailed, simply set out and even educational, this is the perfect art app.
    • 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
    • 80 Critic Score
    Placed in the greater CODverse and BLOPS2 is too inconsistent to rank among the classics. Nice ideas rub shoulders with absolute howlers, and smart additions are hampered by a complacent disregard for beginners. In the Nintendoverse, however, this COD is a big fish in a small pond.

    • 88 Critic Score
    As hilarious as ever - chalk up another must-have purchase for Strong Bad. [Jan 2009, p.93]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Simple fun. [Aug 2011, p.91]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    While it's nothing Fire Emblem fans wont have seen before, this is a hugely enjoyable tactical RPG.
