Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion (3DS)

Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion review (3DS)

Reviewed on February 03, 2013

Although the stages are large enough to be interesting, you’ll have to visit each one several times if you want to discover all of the castle’s secrets. You unlock life meter extensions and improvements to your various attacks by completing various side quests, so you might have a rough time defeating Mizrabel if you don’t seek out all of your potential allies (though perhaps not, since she’s not actually a difficult opponent).

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask (3DS)

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask review (3DS)

Reviewed on February 01, 2013

Since we’ve now reached the fifth game in the series, it’s natural that not every puzzle is a winner, but the stuff that you’ll find here is mostly very good even if it mostly doesn’t utilize the 3DS hardware in any meaningful way. There are some challenges that do repeat a few times, including some irritating ones that ask you to divide a board into four pieces of the same size while gerrymandering your way around chess pawns, but a lot of the brain teasers are intuitive and creative enough to keep you absorbed even if you find yourself stumped for a few minutes at a time.

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...

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.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy (3DS)

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy review (3DS)

Reviewed on October 27, 2012

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy is a conventional plane game with straight-up aerial dogfights, taking place on Earth with a fictional alternate history, with a NATO-like organisation fighting to reclaim a member country usurped in a successful coup d'etat by rebels. Doing so takes you through 22 stages of action, some intense, some deliberately more passive.

Code of Princess (3DS)

Code of Princess review (3DS)

Reviewed on October 09, 2012

It’s easy to appreciate each of those characters, from the busty heroine, to the shifty young bard, to a disinterested necromancer and a brutish fellow who likes cuddly forest animals. There is enough charisma here to support a properly lengthy RPG, which means that one of the greatest tragedies in Code of Princess is the fact that the writers weren’t given time to more fully explore the themes and story.

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir (3DS)

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir review (3DS)

Reviewed on September 29, 2012

As a tech demo, Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir is an excellent piece of programming, making extensive use of three of the Nintendo 3DS’s internal features: gyroscope, camera, and 3D. Too bad Nintendo did not price it like a tech demo. They priced it like a full game, with a $40 price-point.

Centipede: Infestation (3DS)

Centipede: Infestation review (3DS)

Reviewed on September 08, 2012

Centipede: Infestation could best be described more as a reimagination than a bastardisation of the Centipede franchise. While only superficially resembling the classic arcade game, Infestation does borrow heavily from other arcade games of the era . In each of the game’s 40 stages, your primary mission is to survive, accomplished by sending endless bullet spray at overgrown wasps, spiders, ants and other assorted icky-crawlies, mowing them down by the hundreds with your tru...

New Super Mario Bros. 2 review (3DS)

Reviewed on August 14, 2012

Suddenly, until you either clear the current stage or you are struck by an enemy, you fire shots that turn bricks and enemy projectiles into coins. Usually, there are lots of bricks in short proximity. Diving through piles of gold like Wario taking a swan dive into Scrooge McDuck’s money bin is definitely an exhilarating experience.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy (3DS)

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy review (3DS)

Reviewed on July 04, 2012

The varying rules from one mode to the next can seem overwhelming at first, but the differences are actually rather minor and you’ll adapt to everything quickly enough. The biggest difference is actually the differing background imagery. Battle Music places you in a combat scenario that looks like it was pulled from one of the first nine games, with your characters on the right side of the screen and enemies appearing to the left.

Mario Tennis Open (3DS)

Mario Tennis Open review (3DS)

Reviewed on June 04, 2012

Mario Tennis is one of the most underrated spinoff series ever conceived. Ever since its debut over a decade ago, it’s gained a small, but devout following. While not quite as addictive or challenging as the Mario Kart titles, the games won over audiences with a blend of wacky personality and creativity. They demonstrated how the normally tepid sports genre could be made fun and interesting. Though Mario eventually branched out into other pastimes like soccer and baseball, his tenn...

Mario Tennis Open (3DS)

Mario Tennis Open review (3DS)

Reviewed on May 30, 2012

While you play, your view of the action shifts between two perspectives depending on how you hold the 3DS. If you hold the system in a roughly vertical position, the 3D effect is eliminated and the action is presented from a perspective that lies low against the court, almost behind the players. This allows you to aim serves by swinging the unit left or right. If you hold the system horizontally in your lap, the 3D effect returns.

With a seemingly effortless efficiency, the developers of Pushmo have created a puzzler which presents a delicate blend of difficulty and fun, while maintaining variety; things rarely get stale in this downloadable treat.

Kid Icarus: Uprising (3DS)

Kid Icarus: Uprising review (3DS)

Reviewed on March 30, 2012

Somehow, the most appealing aspect of any chapter is the game's strong learning curve. Even though you receive a great deal of guidance from the Goddess of Light, that advice only tells you how to interact with your surroundings (such as when she instructs you to grind along rails or explains what activating certain switches might accomplish).

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D (3DS)

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D review (3DS)

Reviewed on March 19, 2012

When Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D was announced for the 3DS, many people wondered how it was going to work on a platform the original Metal Gear Solid 3 clearly wasn’t designed for. Once the Metal Gear Solid HD collection was announced for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the question changed from “how?” to “why bother?” There may be a place for both versions, but the value that you’ll find in the portable version mostly comes down to the type of Metal Gear Solid fan you are.
