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 05, 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.

Nintendo Land (Wii U)

Nintendo Land review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 02, 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.

Far Cry 3 (PlayStation 3)

Far Cry 3 review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 02, 2012

Far Cry 3 is a sublime open world shooter that attempts to tackle the cause of insanity in a meaningful way, with mixed success.

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.

Assassin's Creed III (Wii U)

Assassin's Creed III review (WIIU)

Reviewed on November 29, 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 (Wii U)

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.

SiNG Party (Wii U)

SiNG Party review (WIIU)

Reviewed on November 25, 2012

SiNG Party feels like a genuine karaoke experience. If you’ve been thinking about potentially picking up a dedicated machine for that purpose but you already own a Wii U, the game would actually be a great alternative...

New Super Mario Bros. U (Wii U)

New Super Mario Bros. U review (WIIU)

Reviewed on November 23, 2012

The original Super Mario Bros. games were quick to move from one idea to the next, and certainly it’s easy to see why developers would do the same thing here, but New Super Mario Bros. U does a better job of reminding the player how awesome the franchise has been over the years than it does delivering a new batch of that same old magic.

The Battle of Olympus (NES)

The Battle of Olympus review (NES)

Reviewed on November 22, 2012

Pay a visit to the island maze-fortress of Crete and the minute you step in the door, you'll be cut to shreds by various Amazon warriors who are both durable and capable of moving their shields around to block attacks much like The Adventures of Link's Ironknuckles. And I haven't even mentioned Phrygia's MANY snake-dragons that take more damage than most bosses while blasting the crap out of you with fire. Brutal…

Halo 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 18, 2012

There was a time when every shooter on the market wanted to be Halo. Now they all want to be Call of Duty, and Halo is off in another room doing its own thing, and it's all the better for it.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II (Xbox 360)

Call of Duty: Black Ops II review (X360)

Reviewed on November 17, 2012

I was curious to see how the sci-fi elements would play out. Now that I’ve seen them in action, they’ve left me wanting more of the same. One early mission has the heroes strap rocket gliders to their back and descend toward a jungle canopy, which is a cool introduction. Another mission finds your character working his way through waterlogged streets while avoiding automated drones that patrol the area (not to mention floating vehicles that have been swept up by the rushing liquid).

Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition (Xbox 360)

Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition review (X360)

Reviewed on November 17, 2012

When my questing first took me here, I admit that it didn't take long for me to get lost, as I wasn't really paying that much attention to the in-game map. D.C. is essentially a world unto itself. A confusing, labyrinthine world with many twists, turns and dead ends. Words can't say how welcome this place was, especially when you consider the rest of the game's world takes place in a pretty unappealing place.

Kid Klown in Night Mayor World (NES)

Kid Klown in Night Mayor World review (NES)

Reviewed on November 16, 2012

Kid Klown in Night Mayor World is a cute, forgettable, rudimentary platformer on NES. It’s one of a legion of mediocre sidescrollers that were released throughout the '80s and '90s that will likely be lost in the annals of gaming history, where they will be overshadowed by a handful of spectacular members from their genre. In other words, play those other titles instead.
