    But with even the most thumb-tied tot capable of completing Cars DS in less than five hours, any Pocket Gamer reader is likely to end up feeling pretty shortchanged.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fun and the type of game the PSP desperately needs, but it is disappointingly restrained in both substance and creativity.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Good graphical presentation and easier core gameplay makes Meteos: Disney Magic a kid-friendly puzzle game, but the spiky learning curve proves frustrating.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Madden NFL 2007 is a solid annual update, but it lacks visual panache and touchscreen brilliance.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Brown and benign, ATV Pro may have a lot of deep mud but its fails to grip over the long term.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Rather than deliver a tantalising treat, peeling away the skin of DK: Jungle Climber reveals bland play mechanics that can't be saved by the game's creative control system.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A tough puzzler that lacks immediate charm, but offers a lasting challenge for those who persevere.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite biting off far more than it can chew, Thrillville provides an enjoyable – if somewhat limited – ride.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Death, Jr II inches its way closer to being a very good game but, too often, its action fails to match the creative promise of its scenario, character and art design.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    For existing fans of trading card games, this is an addictive package offering potentially hours of exciting play. Everyone else may strongly disagree.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The absence of a two-player co-op mode mars what is otherwise an enjoyable – if rather simplistic and short-lived – journey.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fun for a while, Gunpey just doesn't possess the deep gameplay required to be a classic puzzle game.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A marked improvement earns FIFA 07 a toehold in the DS Premiership, but it'll need to work harder next time to keep moving up.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Not the best Star Wars game in the canon – weak mission design and targeting issues hold it back – but it's still a fun distraction for series aficionados and PSP action adventure fans alike.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Combining a colourful cartoon world with the pinball table, Flipper Critters provides an interesting – if unspectacular – mixture of gameplay.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Pilot Academy offers moments of great enjoyment that are unavoidably affected by both the game and the PSP's shortcomings.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A linear and repetitive experience, though one that certainly isn't short of occasional frantic moments of arcade greatness. But mediocre production values do restrict its potential and ultimate appeal.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite being loveable and well-made, Pokémon Ranger's combat system is too shallow to grip your attention.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Avoid the poor multiplayer modes and occasional single-player slowdown, and Pro Evolution Soccer 6 offers a solid enough footy experience.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Resisting the action-packed role-playing adventure awaiting you in Alien Syndrome is futile. While not terribly innovative, it's a solid title with flaws that can easily be overlooked in favour of a good time.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The presentation is great and there's lots packed in, but the core platforming of Rayman Raving Rabbids is unfulfilling.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A decent multiplayer mode and loads of extras, but let down by poor control and often flawed design.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's not that the Emperor has no clothes, but in Master of Disguise, Wario's garb looks distinctly threadbare, despite some cute ideas.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A reasonable conversion of the successful casual PC game, Diner Dash isn't sophisticated or filling enough to truly satisfy DS gourmands.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A cheap and cheerful shooter, Touch the Dead isn't revolutionary, but it's a relatively well put together game that will satisfy your lust for zombie zapping.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A futuristic re-skin can't hide the flaws from appearing in one of this usually reliable series' weakest titles. Budding, but no full bloom.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It may lack the necessary depth to keep adult gamers contented but MySims will appeal to the younger generation of DS owners.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    So-so graphics, a poor saving capability and too few modes make SimCity DS a distinctly average version of what should have been a much more enjoyable experience.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Simultaneously brilliant yet deeply flawed, Heroes of Mana brings novelty to DS strategy gaming. If only the path-finding was up to the standard of the rest of the game, this would be essential.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's potential here but it's sadly squandered thanks to a frustrating control system and needlessly repetitive game modes. One for hardcore WWE fans only.
