    Deca Sports DS could have been so much better. Hudson had most of the game locked down, but the controls are awful. The game had to have been play tested, and there is no reason as to why they weren’t fixed.

    The combat in this title is extremely weak and features little to no depth other than smack-smack-smack-bang.

    For what it is, PokéPark Wii is an endearing little game that is sure to incite nostalgia in longtime fans of the series.

    Even with the rough edges, Supermarket Mania features a fun management time for spurt gaming. The title does not proffer anything remotely innovative, but achieves success in its smart controls and normalcy.

    As a whole, Transformers Prime: The Game is a decent, if imperfect licensed title that will not long last in the collective memory of Wii owners, but it still deserves some honorable mention for actually being fun, a word that could not be properly applied to any of its Transformer forebears on Wii.

    The game certainly isn't perfect– the backgrounds are forgettable, and the game oscillates too readily between being a pushover and cheating badly– but it does better than most games of its ilk and is worth a look for curious young gamers.

    While Rising Board 3D's gameplay certainly has potential, that little penguin that could is often the little penguin that can't, constantly crashing into mountains that you'll swear had no business being in the middle of the ocean, or failing just a simple spin because you didn't have enough practice moving your Circle Pad just so.

    Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove 3D is a fun rhythm game for kids, but it needs to work on its footwork before it enters the dancing game hall of fame. It spends far too much time chatting in rehearsal than it does performing, and even then the game’s over before it’s barely begun. If Gabrielle had a wider repertoire of steps to her name, Ghostly Groove 3D‘s worryingly high eShop price of £12.59 might have been more palatable, but ultimately it leaves us screaming for all the wrong reasons.

    Glitches aside, the graphics are quite good for a third-party title, but they could definitely do with a bit of sharpening.

    The game took me three hours to earn a gold star ranking on each course. While the game has online leaderboards and even achievements to earn, I found no interest in pursing them after receiving my last gold star.

    It’s fun while it lasts, but there just isn’t enough meat to the package, and it’s hard to recommend it over games like Zen Pinball 2 or Pokémon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire.

    The game offers a good amount of content and replayability that young kids and fans will enjoy to a degree, but if you're just itching for a compilation of mini-games on 3DS, Finding Nemo: Escape to the Big Blue lacks the polish and consistency you can easily find elsewhere in 3DS's library.

    The slick production values jazz up the game, and the Metroidvania exploration works on a basic level. Spidey fails to sling off the ground because of repetitive combat and a lack of variety. The world feels a bit lifeless.

    It is a decent game, and will impress you with its 3D effects and difficulty. However, with an asking price of $39.99, the game just isn't worth it, unless you are a major Monkey Ball fan.

    The learning curve in Mission mode is quite steep, and many will undoubtedly be put off by the slow pace at which each stage unfolds.

    If it was setting its sights nearer the $3-5 mark, then Mr. Nibbles’ acorns would be the ideal eShop comfort food, but at $8, Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo feels a little undercooked to be a true platforming classic.

    Order Up!! delivers an eye-catching take on the cooking genre. But the title ultimately serves as more of a fun distraction than an enthralling experience.

    Oceanhorn is an admirable attempt at taking a stab at the Zelda formula. There are plenty of islands to explore, puzzles to solve, and baddies to bonk. The controls are serviceable outside of a couple small hitches with running and a somewhat clunky interface. While imperfect, the presentation makes the world look like a stunning diorama and the music serves to enhance the experience even further. I genuinely had fun with Oceanhorn, and I hope that the upcoming sequel irons out of some of the original’s kinks. For those wanting a more traditional Zelda experience, I recommend giving this one a shot.

    Enchanted the movie did a respectable job appealing to more than its target demographic. Altron made a worthwhile effort to repeat the spirit of this endeavor with the video game adaptation but unfortunately fell short.

    Despite this glaring shortcoming, Amiibo Festival is good, relaxed fun that will be perfect during the holidays and parties with friends.

    With a wealth of content, improved controls, and some addicting minigames to play, Cooking Mama 5 has brought the series back up to par– here’s hoping Majesco can push forward even more and really make the franchise shine if it ever graces us with a sixth installment.

    It’s worth a play, but this is a rare Zelda game that will leave most fans underwhelmed.

    Lego Marvel’s Avengers is a wonderful recreation of the source material, it’s fun to play and the trademark humor fans have come to expect from the series remains intact. Unfortunately, the game’s short length makes it a little difficult to recommend for most seasoned gamers.

    Sonic Lost World is not a fundamentally bad game, it’s one that borders on greatness. If not for some fatal flaws, this could be a truly compelling experience– but it still has those flaws.

    There is some fun to be had in Deca Sports 3, and it's a sure-fire hit at parties. Not a hard-core sports simulator, but some lesser-known sports that don't get the full retail package are also nice to find here.

    The varied options are a nice addition, but most importantly, the game offers off-TV play. As a game geared toward children, allowing kids to play remotely is a fantastic feature. This is arguably the port's biggest upgrade in the transition between consoles.

    Photo Finder is a decent adventure stuffed with charm and fun.

    For what it is, Hello Kitty Kruisers is not the worst game I’ve ever played, by far, it’s just not all that it could be. Overly simplistic races and a lack of depth in terms of racing and unlocking content affect what could be an actually decent racer for Wii U. If you enjoy the Sanrio universe or you have kids in your life that would enjoy a simple, easy racing experience, the small price tag at least isn’t a deterrent to picking it up.

    Sonic Lost World on 3DS is a good Sonic game. While it doesn’t reach the same heights as Sonic Generations or the Wii U racer Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed, it’s certainly better than where the franchise was headed just a few years ago.

    Overall, this is a solid debut for Mario away from the Nintendo ecosystem of consoles, but it’s nowhere near the heights of gameplay that the plumber is known for. Longtime fans might balk at playing a Mario game on iOS (and soon Android, too), but as of now there isn’t much to be worried about. Nintendo wanted to make a mobile Mario title that would offer just enough for players to have fun and want to buy a proper series installment, and I think that the company has succeeded in doing just that.
