IGN gave the Wii version a 7.2 out of 10. They applauded the high value for money (roughly $2 per game), the inclusion of achievements, the short load times and limited slowdown compared to the PlayStation 2 and PSP versions, the selection of four control schemes which all work very well, the inclusion of multiplayer modes in most of the games, and the diversity of game genres offered. Their one criticism was the locking of move lists. GameSpot gave it a 6 out of 10. Like IGN, they criticized the locking of move lists; unlike them, they argued that of the four available control schemes, only the Classic Controller functions competently for all the games. However, their main complaint was that of the 16 games, only Last Resort and Metal Slug are worth getting, with the remaining 14 games being "middling to bad".
