    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.

    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]

    A great strategy game that makes up for basic graphics with addictive gameplay. [Mar 2010, p.90]

    A new spin on an old idea, with enough creativity and charm to keep Breakout fans amused. Peddlers of cynical arcade clones: hang your heads in shame.

    One of the toughest Mega Man games yet. A great download for hardcore retroheads. [May 2010, p.86]

    Hugely detailed, simply set out and even educational, this is the perfect art app.

    Capcom's lawyer sim continues to carve its idiosyncratic niche with sharp storytelling and impressively polished production values.

    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.

    As hilarious as ever - chalk up another must-have purchase for Strong Bad. [Jan 2009, p.93]

    While it's nothing Fire Emblem fans wont have seen before, this is a hugely enjoyable tactical RPG.

    With great controls and an involving plot, this is one title that's well worth conquering. [July 2009, p.90]

    So it is that 3DS's incredible first-party run continues. In the year that has given us the definitive Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing it only makes sense that AlphaDream should step up and deliver the best Mario & Luigi game yet.

    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.

    A fitting way to end a sensational bunch of games. [Apr 2011, p.91]

    One of the best action games ever is now even better. Absolutely essential. [Sept 2011, p.83]

    One of the best platformers on the DS. [Jan 2007, p.75]

    It was going to be hard to do the original justice, but this remake does and then some. [Christmas 2010, p.68]

    Great fun in short bursts, MadWorld is a quality title with buckets of gore, style and humour.

    Scoring a field goal by flicking the Wii Remote feels genuinely satisfying. [Christmas 2006, p.74]

    If you're after an eight-player game on the DSi this may be worth a punt. [Oct 2010, p.97]

    EscapeVektor looks good but lacks charm, and just going up, down, left and right over lines is a little boring. Solid retro gaming, but with a lingering feeling of style over substance.

    • 83 Critic Score
    A joyous little platformer that show how WiiWare should be done, but it's all over too soon. [July 2008, p.80]

    The disappointing lack of multiplayer modes aside, this is almost the perfect strategy package. [Feb 2008, p.62]

    A beautiful nostalgia trip that also stands on its own blurry blue legs. Utterly heart-warming.

    Repetition is just about kept at bay by delicious artiness and deeply involving combat. [Dec 2009, p.80]

    It's not perfect but it's greatly improved, and with tons of game modes and tournaments in here, you'll get a solid round of golf out of this. Finally. [Nov 2008, p.102]

    It's the same old Worms at the core, but it's the franchise at its best. [Sept 2007, p.72]
