    Kamiko costs about $4.99 and can be beaten in under an hour. Visually, it is nothing impressive or interesting... There are far better looking pixel art games out there on the Switch, such as Blaster Master Zero. The core mechanics aren't broken or anything, it is completely serviceable, but it just lacks anything of interest to make Kamiko worth any time at all.

    With a lack of difficulty, a dearth of originality, and a criminally short running time, fans are far better off sticking with the characters' original games.

    This game is torture to play with the Wiimote, looks pathetic and lacks even stripped down versions of features that other platforms have.

    Besides a neat level editor to share stages with friends, there is nothing to be seen here that hasn't been seen countless times before - and more polished. While fun for half an hour, Urban Trial Freestyle 2 has no lasting appeal on its own, but is truly reliant on the level editor and user generated content. Other than that, there are better options out there if looking for a game like this.

    The Quiet Collection had the potential to be a great title, but a number of questionable design choices steer it away from being an essential purchase.

    The real shame about Dragon Fantasy: The Volumes of Westeria is that it actually has some good ideas and is decently and competently made; it's just not the best written.

    Trapped underneath the horrendous glitches and game-breaking bugs is a very intriguing and - for the most part - pleasing adventure, with a touch of comedy mixed in for good measure.

    For four times the price of the eShop game, this is definitely not worth the investment. Stick to the original or opt for something far better for creative minds, New Art Academy.

    Midnight feels like a quick and dirty port of Angry Birds, reminiscent of the Atari 2600 port of Pac-Man. In fact, that is the best way to describe Midnight.

    Populous should not have been re-released - remade and updated most definitely, but not merely re-released.

    Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash should, quite frankly, not exist. It is an embarrassment with next to no content, absolutely no strategy involved, and feels like a blatant cash grab more than anything.

    Reel Fishing Paradise 3D is one of only very few options available for people looking for a fishing game on the Nintendo 3DS. It simply cannot match console simulators that really get the feel for fishing down far better than a portable edition can, though.

    Nintendo Badge Arcade is the bare minimum of what could be sold as a game. It is a watered down digital crane game at the price of a full-sized one with physical prizes.

    After the bizarre novelty of Chubbins wears off, the only feeling left is emptiness.

    Keep your 200 Nintendo Points for something else.

    With minor interaction even required from the gamer, and barely any challenge overall, your 200 Nintendo Points should be retained for something far more worthy in the future.

    Only the most fanatical solitaire enthusiast may enjoy this product.

    It does have some nice ideas, but it only executes them sort of well and then pisses all over them with terrible gameplay mechanics, a camera that is surely the spawn of Satan and graphics that look like someone excreted them. Avoid.

    There are some elements of Sadame that are done well, but they are completely overwhelmed by the fundamental aspects just being so poor.

    If you like pinball so much that this is tempting just turn on your PC and play the free pinball game that comes with Windows. Much better, much more fun and not a total waste of a Wii game.

    Playing through the same levels over and over again to the same grating music can only stay tolerable for so long.

    There's simply no appeal to the MS Paint drawn world that's been created; it's a boring and thoughtless mini-disaster that should just be ignored and forgotten.

    Whilst the idea is good and the execution is fine there is literally nothing resembling a game to be had here.

    At the end of the day die-hard pet simulator fans will enjoy the game, young children might get a kick or two out of it for a little while but we can't see it sticking in the long haul.

    Faceez is a lovely idea, but sadly one that is far too underdeveloped to warrant making this an essential purchase.

    The game does have some potential to host a well rounded sandbox experience but fails through what seems like an experimental, first-stab-at-it approach with little in the way of refining and testing.

    As is, at $2, less than the cost of a side dish at a fast food restaurant, it is so inoffensive, so softly marketed, that it actually may be a good purchase for some fans of physics puzzling games. Be warned, though, that much like fast food, the entire game may be finished in less than 30 minutes.

    Rubbish, utter rubbish. Sloppy development, boring minigames and not enough content to keep anyone entertained for longer than twenty minutes.

    Legna Tactica's biggest flaw is that it simply cannot compare to the 3DS' already strong strategy library. The combat lacks the depth of Fire Emblem, the story doesn't hold a candle to Devil Survivor, and the price is much higher than either Mercenaries Saga title, despite being similarly generic. The actual campaign is tedious and the maps are reminiscent of Final Fantasy Tactics in the worst ways possible. There's no thought behind any mechanic, leading to a distinct lack of identity, where every possible positive quality can be attributed to a far better game. Legna Tactica may work on a technical level, but that's hardly a reason to justify a full playthrough, let alone a purchase.

    Groove Heaven is clearly one for the kids, but even then, it's far too short of an adventure that lacks variety in its levels and music tracks. The presentation is lovely and the idea is welcome, but it's difficult to recommend this rhythm title over some of the greats already available on the Nintendo 3DS.
