    Nintendo promised and delivered. Mario Kart 8 is the shiniest star in one of the shiniest series in the world of videogames. Perfectly fine-tuned gameplay, a leap in the right direction for the online component, a magnificent audio-visual pillar worthy of the Wii U and an immensely fun and absorbing experience, whether solo or multiplayer, making Mario Kart 8 an instant and timeless classic.

    Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, a title as long and exaggerated as the fun and entertainment this game provides. One of the Wii U’s best works, Guacamelee’s enhanced version plays like a a “metroidvania” type of game and fills the spaces with a delightful atmosphere, an exquisite artistic component and an affection which is set to grow in the player’s heart.

    As a port of a game that is well-known by millions of players, there is nothing truly surprising in 3D Sonic the Hedgehog, but it has become the definitive version of the Mega Drive classic. An almost flawless adaptation, and definitely one of the best eShop games available, despite the obvious lack of a widescreen mode.

    NES Remix is a toast to the good old times. It succeeds in evoking memories of the NES classics, and it shows, in a certain way, how a collection of games can be a good substitute of some of the titles available on Virtual Console.

    Rather than a game, KORG M01D is an exquisite musical composing tool that fits perfectly within the 3DS. Its price tag is yet another point in favour for a title that is set to captivate its target-audience. Nevertheless, it should be pointed out that M01D might still seem too intimidating for those with few skills in the field of music-making.

    Sega managed to take one of its 1980s arcade classics and turned into an attractive conversion able to keep the gamers happy and entertained. With gameplay that adapts perfectly to short gaming sessions and a very competent transition from the arcade to the handheld format, 3D Super Hang-on crowns it with a perfectly smooth 3D effect. This is an effort that deserves to be experienced.

    The Assassin's Creed series is teetering on the brink of saturation. Credit to Black Flag for escaping that fate thanks to its interesting and innovative mechanics. Naval exploration brings in several additional hours of gameplay, which along with its competent plot contribute to make Black Flag the best Assassin's Creed game since the second chapter of the series.

    The LEGO series sticks to its formula of accessible puzzles, gags and simple gameplay mechanics. While this coherence is overall positive, it’s not improving where it should. Nonetheless, the overwhelming presence of the Marvel universe and the amount of unlockable content are well enough for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes to please the fans of both the comic and the game series alike.

    An outstanding experience that will throw the player into Arkham's sombre environments. This game is able to turn nearly everyone into a Batman follower, whether they're ready or not. An essential title which perfectly ties exquisite story-telling with near-perfect gameplay mechanics.

    Once again, the Donkey Kong Country series returns to the spotlight. Tropical Freeze is a worthy successor and Retro Studios has done a fine work in bringing the series to Nintendo's current generation. Loading times and underwater controls could be improved, though, as they're standing in the way of an excellent platforming experience.

    An absolutely delightful and action-packed gem, loaded with references to 1980s pop culture and made even more playable on a handheld, Retro City Rampage: DX brings all that to the 3DS. Players who already have the other versions should reconsider this purchase, though, as it adds little to those.

    Yoshi’s New Island tries to replicate the first chapter as often as possible but its lack of new elements and an ever-present feeling of repetitiveness keep the 3DS title from reaching the same heights as its SNES forefather. But make no mistake about it, this is a fine piece of gaming, bursting with colour and spoiling the players with a magnificent visual design and an overall satisfying gameplay.

    This crossover between Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright brings the best of two worlds into one game. With its very well thought and executed concept, Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright is set to charm fans of both series alike. It does miss out, though, on the quantity and quality of the puzzles offered, as well as on the lacklustre outcome of its plot, perhaps a casualty of such an ambitious crossover.

    Mario Golf: World Tour brings Nintendo's golf series to the 3DS in quite a competent and compelling way. There's a wide variety of content to unlock and the challenge will keep players with their hands on this for a long time. Less skilled players may find it too difficult though, but anyone willing to invest a bit of their time and effort will be adequately rewarded.

    Child of Light is nothing short of a delight of appealing mechanics and marvelous artistic component, set to enchant those looking for a charming RPG. Its storylines could use some additional development, as well as more tasks outside the plot’s line, but this remains a solid choice.

    Pokémon Art Academy is a well presented software that manages to teach the players about drawing within a Pokémon-esque context, providing a vital and compelling framework for would-be artists to learn some skills while exploring one of Nintendo's biggest series. Sharing one's creations is also a high point here, even though the overall experience can be rather short and a 3DS screen does not go as far as a real canvas.

    Etrian Odyssey Untold is a successful and well-executed remake which does a superb job at introducing the series to newcomers, as well as to rekindling the interest of its veterans. The game's enormous lifespan, its wide variety of locations and magnificent remastered soundtrack more than make for a rather simple narrative.

    The Denpa Men 3: The Rise of Digitoll is a continuity in evolution, bringing elements of change but leaving the series' fundamentals untouched. While being a game of its generation, it still creates a retro RPG outlook and addresses some of the nuisances often present in this genre, which is very appreciated, and its colourful and imaginative settings along with the customization possibilities are set to appeal. On the down side, its plot is relatively uninteresting and it doesn't really attempt to stand out from the series' previous titles.

    It's undeniable that Wii Sports Club is a clear improvement over the original, with its improved graphics, precise controls and online multiplayer mode. In spite of this, Nintendo could have taken a bigger risk, by developing a true sequel to Wii Sports. As it is, one has to wonder if its price isn't a bit excessive for what it offers.

    For parties with musical entertainment, Wii Karaoke U is a choice to consider. Its varied and enormous repertoire is sure to please any music fan and its control system makes a good use of the Wii U GamePad, which helps in overlooking a number of mistakes on the classification of the songs.

    While boasting an overall good presentation and pace of gameplay, The Mysterious Cities of Gold: Secret Paths ends up becoming too repetitive despite its compelling beginning. The puzzles are easy to solve and the overall effort is rather simple, which makes this a light-hearted adventure mostly directed at a younger crowd, especially for the followers of the eponymous animation series.

    Changing characters can bring new stimulation but in the case of Dr. Luigi, virtually nothing else differs when compared to the latest Dr. Mario. A fun and competent effort using very familiar mechanics but which will fail to impress those looking for something fresh and new.

    This individual effort by the name of Unepic triggers a craving for exploration in an action-platform and adventure style, akin to the early Castlevania games. There are shortcomings and points which require a greater polishing, but the elements are all here to become an instant hit with its audience.

    Castlestorm displays certain qualities which are more than welcome and that shake the ground a bit in what is overwhelmingly a niche style. Nevertheless, its record would be far more interesting if its technical flaws and repetitiveness were solved.

    Team Ogre Attacks is another competent and fairly appealing title in the not-so-common style of sports RPGs, this time in a game adapted from an animation movie. Nevertheless, its new content is not groundbreaking enough to the point of justifying its purchase, at least for those who already own another version of Inazuma Eleven 3.

    The LEGO Movie Videogame delivers what is expected: a good movie-to-game conversion, plenty of the series' trademark humour and a top notch soundtrack. That being said, several flaws remain, such as the lack of an online multiplayer, a low difficulty level and a short lifespan, liabilities which stand in the way of making this a universally-appealing title.

    Pokémon Link: Battle! is a fun addition to the enormous Pokémon series, this time to its puzzle front. While it can get repetitive quickly, this game is mostly oriented towards short gaming bouts, as well as to local multiplayer sessions. The lack of an online component is a mystery, though. Fans of the Pokémon series and of puzzle games alike will find good reasons to put their hands on this.

    Tappingo does its role and does it well. This Picross-inspired puzzle game is simple enough to understand quickly and to grab the player's attention for some time. It does feel a bit stripped, though, looking at the lack of contents beyond its main experience, with a complete absence of extras and additional modes.

    A great improvement over its predecessor, Steel Diver: Sub Wars is successful at putting the player in a submarine environment, recreating several aspects of these vessels within the boundaries set by the 3DS. The overall short length of its one player mode and the lack of options on multiplayer mode end up becoming obstacles on its route, but this is a title that will not disappoint.

    One doesn't require a fully-accurate (and serious) football management game to have a fun, involving and addictive experience, this is the overall message of Nintendo Pocket Football Club.

    Beyond the graphical environments and gameplay, Pure Chess is a compelling title, offering plenty of options, as well as tutorials for beginner players. However, its asynchronous online mode harms the experience of playing with an opponent at a distance, which hampers the game’s appeal to those interested in online chess matches.

    The versatility of the Kirby franchise is only surpassed by Kirby's capacity to absorb enemies and their respective abilities. Triple Deluxe, however, does not go all the way through and is rather an example of a classic Kirby game transplanted to the 3DS. Level design starts to show some fatigue but Kirby and his enemies are as delightful as ever in their colourful ways and 3D depth perception effects.

    Nintendo keeps using its legacy as a way to boost its presence and while NES Remix 2 does strike a chord with the nostalgia crowd, it also shows its limitations by not expanding the pool of challenges beyond that of the original title. For this reason and also for the lack of a real online interaction, Remix 2 does not stand out as it should.

    As far as humorous unconventional games are concerned, Stick it to the Man fits perfectly among those titles that break the lines of conformity. The whole experience is richly treated to a recipe of originality and humour, helped by a superb sound environment. If only the programming of some of the GamePad functions was improved and longevity more ambitious, this would be an all-round winner.

    The first Inazuma Eleven to be fully produced for the 3DS had a tremendous opportunity to bring forth a significant evolution to the series. Nevertheless, other than the laudable technical progress, its new features are lukewarm at best, some of them even bothersome. This remains a solid, quality title but Inazuma Eleven GO: Light/Dark has missed its champion shot.

    Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails is more than a throwback to the 16-bit era, it’s an action-packed challenge on rails, guaranteed to keep the most demanding players closely around its simple, yet demanding concept.

    Fan service always manages to strike a core audience but ends up sacrificing other segments of the public.

    As with any regular 1980s arcade game, Space Harrier 3D's longevity derives from the circumstances of the coin-op machines it comes from, leading to a very small long-term appeal. Technically it respects the original work, although the 3rd dimension makes very little difference in this promised 3D re-edition. This is one game to be kept in mind by those looking for a typical 1980s-style arcade shooter.

    This Powered Edition of F1 Race Stars attempts to create a middle-ground between hardcore Formula One fans and those who prefer a less realistic approach to the races. The effort is laudable and Codemasters can claim some partial success on the technical front and variety of events. Nevertheless, liabilities such as the short longevity and the unexplainable absence of an online multiplayer mode make this a lacklustre approach to the sport, which will disappoint the F1 crowd and prove too demanding to the more casual demographics.

    Despite its similarities with Arkham City - Armoured Edition, this Arkham Origins ends up on a lower threshold.

    There’s no obvious explanation about why the original game is released in Europe after its sequel. Calendar mysteries notwithstanding, Adventure Time: Hey Ice King!

    As laudable as it can be in storytelling and in presenting a solid narrative which gives its players a few clear choices of what to do next, Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi offers little in terms of gameplay and challenge.

    Senran Kagura Burst is tailored to a very, very specific segment of the audience who will appreciate its peculiar humor. For other parts of the audience, there's the enormously disproportionate cartoonish female breasts, but a game cannot live off that alone.

    Cut the Rope: Triple Treat is not harmed by its gameplay, its controls or its technical aspects.

    The Mysterious Cities of Gold: Secret Paths is yet another example of an entertaining game based on a popular television series…entertaining, but flawed, as it does not make proper use of the 3DS, starting with the lack of a 3D mode, added to an overall feeling of repetitiveness. Still, it’s an effort that can be enjoyed by fans of the series, but not a trailblazing or groundbreaking piece of work.

    Sayonara Umihara Kawase is one of those titles that has the potential to captivate one segment of the audience while leaving the other mostly indifferent to it.

    Swords & Soldiers requires no introduction, this real-time strategy title is now reaching the Wii U and brings along some very appreciated GamePad controls.

    There are few reasons why a game that is available on the mobile market and also available for free on a Flash format should be released as a paying game for the 3DS. Other than players with a very keen interest in poker and who are not familiar with the other versions of this game, very few will find it appealing.

    Without anything remarkable to offer in the four fields that it touches upon - action, adventure, puzzle and arcade - this is best used as a basis to learn about how to make videogames, as the insights on game design found along the way are more entertaining than any other component the game offers.

    Tangram Style has no ambition and it shows. An overall dull and technically flawed experience, which will wear out the players’ patience and which does not in any way maximize the game’s potential lifespan derived from its very high number of puzzles, Tangram Style is only to be considered by those specifically looking for something like this.

    Gravity Badgers is full of good intentions. Its plentiful contents and interest mechanics have everything that would amount to a fun and compelling challenge…but its repetitiveness and exaggerated resource to those very same mechanics end up leaving the player weary and tired.

    It’s hard to understand why such a flawed piece of work would be released without at least a major revision. Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW! tries and fails not only at being a decent playable effort, but even at portraying a popular animation series for its fans. If anything, it provides an example of what not to do in a game.

    Skater Cat's catchy tune (yes, there's only one) and acceptable graphical environments are not nearly enough to redeem what is an overwhelming exercise of repeating the same formula, the same mechanics and the exact same pattern again and again...Many aspects of this game need to be revised if it is ever aiming at becoming something worth considering.
