    Even ignoring the modernity of "Soul Calibur," "Marvel vs. Capcom 2" and "Guilty Gear" do the 2D thing so much better than this. [Nov 2006, p.107]

    The gameplay's hardly moved on in more than a decade, but simplicity is the key to Puyo Pop's appeal. An absorbing if not original addition to the handheld ranks. [June 2006, p.86]

    Classic puzzling from the glory days of adventure gaming, but the truth is that it's old and very clearly showing its age. [Christmas 2006, p.92]

    It's as close to perfect as a darts game can be but, thanks to the nature of darts, that means it's sitll a bit dull, really. [Feb 2008, p.84]
