Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll

Despite already being out on the GameCube and GBA, this DS version adds some fresh new ideas to the mix. It has problems with control but you still won't be able to put it down.

The Rub Rabbits!

Oozing its own distinct style and with a genuinely laugh-out-loud sense of humour, The Rub Rabbits! is unfortunately out-weirded and out-clevered by the mighty WarioWare.

Worms: Open Warfare

Offering the old-school laugh-out-loud fun that Worms has always provided, this is a fine introduction to the series and shows that a good game is always a good game, no matter how old it is.

Lunar Genesis

What would have been an above-average role-player has mutated into a tortuous nightmare of plodding combat-saturated pain. Avoid if you value your sanity.

Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble

In trying to do too much, Capcom has moved away from what made Smash Bros so successful. Red Hot Rumble isn't a bad game, it's just a hopelessy messy over-designed one.

Sega Casino

Hardened poker heads might get a few cheap thrills here, but - as ever - gambling on games of chance with no risk of losing any real money feels ever so slightly futile...

Mega Man Battle Network 5: Double Team

Sprawling role-playing fun that delivers two full games for your money. Annoyingly the DS features feel tacked-on and it's quite literally been done before on the GBA.

Tak: The Great Juju Challenge

Whilst far better than some recent licensed dross, The Great Juju Challenge is never enthralling. Tak and Lok have some way to go before they become the new Mario and Luigi.
