    Tak: The Great Juju Challenge

    It's no classic, but it's certainly a game kids should enjoy. Tak: The Great Juju Challenge is the third game in the series. While Tak's... more

    Pac-Man World 3

    There wouldn't be too many disappointed kids if they were sat down in front of this on a rainy afternoon. Pac-Man World 3, for anyone that hasn't been following the Pac-Man World... more

    New Zealand Story Revolution

    I'd recommend the average DS owner sticks to the more user-friendly thrills of New Super Mario Bros and lets this old bird rest its tired wings. I'm starting to feel like I've gone through some sort of time warp and am... more

    Rayman Raving Rabbids

    Raving Rabbids is unlikely to be remembered as a classic when we look back at the Wii in five years time, but for now it's one of the better titles available and well worth a look. A major concern many people have over the future of the Wii is whether or... more

    Crash of the Titans Review

    Crash of the Titans

    If you are after something more accessible, or just long to revisit the unofficial mascot of the first PlayStation, there are far less enjoyable Wii titles out there than Crash of the Titans. There was a time when the plucky orange bandicoot we know as Crash was... more

    Boing! Docomodake DS Review

    Boing! Docomodake DS

    Boing! Docomodake is an imaginative, slightly quirky platform puzzler which will be great for the kids but doesn't hold a whole lot of challenge for adult gamers. You might have noticed that this review looks slightly different to other... more

    Kirby Super Star Ultra Review

    Kirby Super Star Ultra

    Kirby Super Star on the SNES is considered the best Kirby game ever made by aficionados, so the fact that this remake adds a few bells and whistles should ensure smiles all round. What is Kirby? Yes, I know he's a pink blob, but what exactly is he? Mario's... more

    Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter Review

    Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter

    Drawn to Life is not the Wii's LittleBigPlanet. Nor does it offer the creative freedom of Scribblenauts, but it is a fun, quality platformer. Scribblenauts meets LittleBigPlanet. That's the tantalising description... more

    de Blob 2: The Underground Review

    de Blob 2: The Underground

    It's children that will inevitably get the most from the experience, but like a Pixar film or any good cartoon, Blue Tongue Entertainment has created a game that appeals on two levels. Thinking about it, I probably should have told somebody I was colour-blind... more

    Super Mario 64 DS

    Super Mario 64 DS is the gaming equivalent of Lucas's ham-fisted Star Wars special editions: fantastic entertainment, to be sure, but something of a cash-in all the same. In the end, it all comes down to confidence. You can launch a console - or,... more

    Sonic Rush

    If you own a DS and fancy some traditional Sonic magic, Sonic Rush should fit the bill nicely. The best pure platformer on the DS is from Sega; who'd have thought it? Sonic The Hedgehog is one of the all-time great gaming icons and the one... more

    Yoshi's Island DS

    Yoshi's Island DS is a thoroughly enjoyable platformer, but it's not going to make the same impact as its illustrious predecessor. It makes a quite refreshing change to hear the impossibly cute mumblings of... more

    Sonic Rush Adventure

    At £30 it's a tad expensive for the play-time you get, but if you're new to the series on DS or love all things Sonic, we heartily recommend it. One of the best games on the system. Sonic the Hedgehog, standard bearer of Japanese game publisher/developer... more

    Bee Movie Review

    Out of all the Pixar and Dreamworks games, Bee Movie Game is absolutely among one of the best, and would make for a brilliant Christmas present if you're looking to satisfy the kids. You might have noticed that this review looks slightly different to others... more

    Donkey Kong: Jungle Climber

    Jungle Climber is a DS title that's going to keep handheld owners hooked for quite some time to come. This is though, another definite winner from the big N. For me, Nintendo could do no wrong. And then they released the Wii. Say what... more
