Batman Returns (NES)

Batman Returns review (NES)

Reviewed on December 14, 2012

When I think of effective beat 'em ups, adjectives like "awesome" and "badass" come to mind, and those are the last words I'd use to describe a gang of combat-trained circus performers. Sorry, but I'll take broken bottles and seedy night clubs over frills, grease paint, and leotards any day.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two (Wii U)

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 11, 2012

Unfortunately, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is a disappointment compared to its imperfect but promising predecessor. The ambition and inventiveness that were so evident the first time around have been obscured by a sloppy retread that may well leave you wondering why anyone bothered to create it.

Batman Returns (Genesis)

Batman Returns review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 10, 2012

I somehow mistook Batman Returns' gloomy cold opening, where the Caped Crusader fights his way to the top of a building and failing to save the Ice Princess from a plunge, as a sign that this side-scrolling platformer might be good.

NightSky (3DS)

NightSky review (3DS)

Reviewed on December 09, 2012

Sometimes, the levels will blur together and proceed quickly, with little to no challenge. When the ball gets to rolling swiftly through these areas, you're offered a free and spirited look into the essence of Nightsky. It has come together; it meshes. I think NightSky would have been better suited not to be a puzzler; instead, perhaps it shouldn't have been a game at all, but rather an interactive story. Nicalis clearly knows how to tug at your heart, as all of the game's flaws will assured...

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (SNES)

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 09, 2012

First, a company comes out with a game that has potential and is terrific in some aspects, but it lacks a bit overall. In the case of Rare's Donkey Kong Country, the Super Nintendo played host to an absolutely gorgeous platformer that just didn't live up to the (admittedly very high) standard set for that system by Super Mario World. It was solid and it tended to be enjoyable, but no new ground was broken and things could get repetitive. It seemed to be the ultimate in playing it safe — a game that could have come with a disclaimer: "You've done all this before, but it's never looked this good… has it?!" With Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, it's safe to say that Rare’s developers were through with the whole "testing the waters" phase, as they not only improved on the original, but managed to create one of the top platformers I've ever played.

Wipeout 3 (Wii U)

Wipeout 3 review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 07, 2012

Courses in Wipeout 3 feature a variety of obstacles, but for the most part the differences between one hazard and the next are cosmetic. You’ll need to swim across pools of murky water sometimes, but in general you are running along platforms that are suspended above a massive liquid field. Falling into soup when you’re not supposed to will knock you back to the last checkpoint.

Jewel Master: Cradle of Egypt 2 (DS)

Jewel Master: Cradle of Egypt 2 review (DS)

Reviewed on December 06, 2012

Rather than pairing up squares for points, as you do in Bejeweled, you use the stylus to group symbols in order to clear colored tiles within a given time limit. Matching specific symbols, such as tomatoes or gold coins, earns you resources, which you receive upon level completion. These resources enable you to erect a number of historical Egyptian buildings, each of which is accompanied by a little historical factoid about that particular structure’s function in society at that time.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed (Wii U)

Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 05, 2012

The new tracks also do a great job honoring their source material. Of particular note is the NiGHTS Into Dreams stage, which finds you flying through the familiar orange rings and even chasing after a fat ballerina on an oversized ball who crashes through walls just like one of the bosses in that classic title. It’s quite spectacular and it shows that Sumo Digital really is familiar with the previous titles that inspired this kart racer.

Resident Evil 6 (PlayStation 3)

Resident Evil 6 review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 04, 2012

Somewhere amidst the zombies, the parasites, the secret organizations, Resident Evil has lost itself. You can tell that Capcom wanted Resident Evil 6 to be big; an homage to sixteen years of fandom. The problem is, they don’t know who they are appealing to any more.

Nintendo Land (Wii U)

Nintendo Land review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 03, 2012

Around half of the rides are single-player affairs, which is disappointing because the game really has the best shot at longevity when you’re experiencing it with a few friends. However, those single-player events also tend to be the most challenging. That fact at least adds to their potential replay value if you’re stuck alone with your disc.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 review (3DS)

Reviewed on December 02, 2012

Some people may be turned off by the game's seemingly flamboyant disregard for real change, but if you like Mario before, there's little reason to dislike this game.

Scribblenauts Unlimited (Wii U)

Scribblenauts Unlimited review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 02, 2012

That’s about as nasty as the game will let you get. If you try to toss potentially offensive nouns into the mix, or if you try to use “sexy” or even “bloody” as an adjective, you won’t have any luck. The game is mostly G-rated, and really that’s just fine. It helps make things all the funnier when you find unlikely combinations and engineer humorous outcomes.

Mario Bros. (Arcade)

Mario Bros. review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 30, 2012

For every time that I adapted to a situation, the game established new methods to disturb my equilibrium. For instance, it introduced new opponents like flies and crabs, the latter of which required two bumps to incapacitate. Dealing with those two, though, wasn't nearly as challenging or frustrating as navigating icy floors, which made the already-slick control response more difficult to work with.

Assassin's Creed III (Wii U)

Assassin's Creed III review (WIIU)

Reviewed on November 30, 2012

Connor is a difficult character to like in some respects, because he has little interest in the plight of the patriots except as it relates to the security of his own people. He tends to act a bit like an overgrown child in some instances, lashing out at the people around him, then trusting them and helping them only a short time later. If he’s not the perfect hero, though, at least his shortcomings make him seem human.

ZombiU review (WIIU)

Reviewed on November 26, 2012

Backed by Ubisoft’s bulging coffers and headed our way as a throwback from the arm of a Joe Schmo rather than a Joe Montana, the title feels like it belongs in the genre’s middling days and not its prime.
