    As much as there is to love in Star Fox Zero, sadly the awkward controls of various vehicles, and the horrendous forced second viewpoint and gyroscope targeting of regular Arwing and Landmaster stages almost ruin the entire experience.

    Unholy Heights, though well-crafted and humorous, is far from perfect. The combination of the two genres may seem like a fantastic idea on paper (and it does indeed lead to some enjoyable moments of gameplay), but there's far too much empty space for extended play sessions to be consistently fun. That said, it fills a hole left open for two of the most starved genres on the eShop, and fans of either tower defence or simulation could do far worse than to spend a few hours in the devil's shoes.

    The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is a disappointing entry in the long-running series.

    The original 7 Wonders was addictive as it was, but its sequel manages to surpass it, giving fans of the genre another pleasing piece of puzzle pie for a very wallet-friendly price.

    Cranium Kabookii is definitely a fun little product for Wii, with lots of variety involved and clever puzzles. Sadly there are a few niggles that prevent this from being a must-buy, especially given how the board game itself is a much cheaper alternative.

    It is fun whilst it lasts and is definitely deserving of a play through. This is Sonic, just not quite as he was previously known.

    Pure Chess is a solid way to play the popular board game offline and features a great presentation, but unfortunately, its online component is very inconsistent.

    Any fan of puzzle games would be well advised to pick up Ninja Usagimaru: The Gem of Blessings, but moving blocks around can only provide so much entertainment, even with a variety of movement options and tools available.

    Hotel Transylvania is a tightly woven platform adventure full of accurate jumps, clever abilities, and brings the characters from the amusing movie to life. However, constant back-tracking and uninventive fetch missions mar the experience somewhat.

    Younger players might get a kick out seeing their favourite Pokemon in a new light, but others should probably stick to 'purer' roguelikes like Shiren, or more standard RPGs like the core Pokemon titles.

    Poncho is a short adventure with excellent storytelling and amusing aspects, but far from being a flawless game, because of its technical issues, lack of challenge and altogether limited gameplay potential. An unexceptional game, but with enough personality and redeeming features that prevent it from being immediately forgotten.

    Enjoyment for Hazumi will very much depend on the player's determination. A solid core idea is let down by the repetition necessary to succeed, ensuring for many people much of the content will never be seen.

    Cooking Mama 3 is a nice progression for the culinary mini-game series that has become a roaring success around the world.

    Robox tries to be a good Metroid-esque game, but it falls short in the fact that, for the average gamer, it can get frustratingly hard.

    At the end of the day, it's hard to recommend to anyone but fans that want to know how the story ends, but they should keep their expectations in check in order to get to the good parts through the messy parts and still have a good time out of it. Indeed, it's tough, after two great games that ended in a cliff-hanger, to simply ignore the finale, despite its flaws.

    A decent enough addition to the series, but ultimately, one that fails to bring anything new or special.

    Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters on 3DS is a bit on the easy side, and there are some shortcomings such as occasional slowdown, especially within combat. If you're a fan of Metroid-style exploration, though, or the Green Lantern series itself, and are prepared to accept some flaws, this is not a bad buy.

    The low price tag helps, but overall this just feels forgettable.

    If it may not succeed at making the now-classic and well-known story of Dragon Ball Z very interesting through its artistic choices, Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden does succeed at making players feel in control of the action and giving a good sense of thrill to whoever plays it in the actual battles.

    One of the better movie-based games, and one that packs in a lot of variety, even if it does feel somewhat-limited in parts.

    For the most part the touch screen provides a great interface for constructing buildings and managing units. Unfortunately, poor path finding and AI tarnishes the experience and adds a great deal of frustration to the mix.

    Solitaire is as Solitaire does. It's as much as can be done with a title such as this, and 3D Solitaire is for filling those times when bored senseless and just wanting something to do. It works well and looks halfway decent, even if the controls are a contradiction of sorts.

    Zoo Resort 3D provides a nice twist on the regular type of zoo simulation game, but once the story mode is complete there is little pull for further gameplay, even with the added features of challenges to complete.

    It plays very well and, besides the small loading screen glitch, it does little wrong. Miffy's World will keep a child happy, and that's what matters.

    The biggest problem for Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale rests in the fact that it tries to be two things, but is only going halfway with both, something that creates an experience that will leave most people longing for more.

    Animal Crossing: Wild World is a good entry to the series for newer players; there's the same charm and simple fun that has drawn in many fans - but with the available technology and development time there was so much potential for doing more.

    Aenigma Os stands out as a really clever take on the modern puzzle genre. It offers great brain training and entertaining game modes that really change how players have to plan their moves. The biggest problems are that it is very similar to many other games and that it is on a home console.

    Paper Mario: Color Splash is a complete joy aesthetically, looking and sounding fantastic, complemented by some very amusing script work. At its core, though, whilst attempting to mix things up as much as it can in order to keep the action fresh, its battle system grows tiresome very quickly, dragging the enjoyment factor down several notches.

    The fact that this is one of the first titles to use MotionPlus shows badly. At times it feels at best poorly implemented and at other points it just feels like it has been tacked on as an afterthought.

    That said, this latest classic revamp on the 3DS eShop is certainly a enjoyable and it's tremendously rewarding to finally overcome its challenges.
