    Seriously lacking in key areas and too pricey - EA should have skipped this and gone straight to "Rock Band 2" instead. [Nov 2008, p.98]

    What had the potential to be the best Resi of recent years ends up being merely a solid port. The overall experience still plays best on 3DS.

    Though it re-treads some of the same ground as the original, Pullblox World is more of what we loved on 3DS: challenging yet simple and a joy to play.

    If not a return to form for Sonic on DS, then it maintains the series' high handheld form.

    A love letter to Dead Or Alive fans and a dizzying companion piece to SSFIV3D.

    Expanded and miniaturised, Ultimate finds its natural home on 3DS. Only the lack of online and faffy controls prevent must-buy status.

    Wright benefits slightly more from the fresh coat of paint, but Layton more than holds his own in this hugely enjoyable slice of comic mystery.
