Quite how Gearbox's pocket shooter turns so many negatives into such a playable game is inexplicable, but sometimes the most unpolished combat boots are the most comfortable.

Despite Call of Duty: Black Ops' many successes, everyone should approach this with caution.
One of the most graphically impressive titles on the DS and a very impressive scrolling shooter.

Teenage Zombies isn't going to tax hardcore gamers, but is worth playing through, mainly due to the relaxed pace of the whole thing and the nice touches of humour throughout.
Although Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword isn't the spectacular action game we hoped it would be, it's still a highly polished, hugely enjoyable game.
