    As it stands, the depth and longevity of the Race to the Top mode and the excellent play mechanics all add to the overall value of this game.

    WayForward may not fix every small detail with Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition, but the developer delivers an enhanced version of a great game. All the new content - HD visuals and remixed stages - elevates the title even more, making it a beautifully designed and challenging action-puzzle-platform experience.

    EDGE is truly something special. The game oozes creativity and constantly introduces awesome concepts that keep you entertained.

    Seeds of Evil is an adrenaline thrill ride from start to finish. I strongly suggest a purchase as the multiplayer alone warrants a buy.

    SteamWorld Dig sets out to be a safe but amazingly polished gem, and SteamWorld Dig is exactly that, no more, no less.

    With almost a hundred levels and the constant drive to beat the high score on every one, the game demands an unrelenting combination of both brains and reflexes that is unmatched elsewhere on Nintendo eShop. Its difficulty may be high, but as with every puzzler, there's a solution: just add practice.

    Twilight Princess HD reaffirms everything that made this game great the first time around.

    Minor complaints aside, it's great to see an enhanced version of Cave Story available on eShop. The stereoscopic 3D adds a little depth, which is nice, and the game controls as wonderfully as ever. But once again, choosing the best version depends on personal preference.

    Regardless the shortcomings, Nintendo definitely deserves praise for yet again hiring not one but two orchestras to play the game's soundtrack start to end– hearing real strings and percussion, occasionally augmented by sci-fi synthesizer, adds a lushness to the soundtrack that Metroid has long deserved.

    Despite fears that a new stable of characters would prove less interesting than the established cast, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney manages to hold up to its predecessors in nearly every way.

    Gunman Clive 2 is everything a fan of the original game could want: it improves on an already strong framework, without feeling like a rehash.

    Mario Maker is a refreshing take on the Super Mario formula, offering fans the chance to play with the famous plumber in ways that they never have before.

    Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask is a marvelous return to form, expertly adapting to the 3DS all of the strengths of the franchise– compelling characters, top-notch production values, and the all-important puzzle– into a cohesive game. We love the thrill of a good solution, and this latest entry to the series provides them in spades.

    Players who have already exhausted the experience have no reason to buy it again unless they are extremely eager to see it flourish on a handheld.

    LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias is definitely a top-tier WiiWare title. It manages to correct most of the flaws with the first game and is an amazing example of why WiiWare is a good idea.

    For new players of Mutant Mudds, I would wholeheartedly recommend Deluxe. However, if you already have it for 3DS, you have to ask yourself if the addition of checkpoints and the extra ghost levels is worth buying the game again.

    Super Scribblenauts shines with polish, cleverness and ingenuity.
    • 85 Metascore

    A disorienting thrill ride of white/black strategy; an unbelievable roller coaster of shooting glory.
    • 93 Metascore

    The moments where the odd discordant cadence make us yearn for times gone by come a little too often, even though it's by far the greatest testimony and most successful game to fulfil the promise of one-to-one motion control. It's an apt swan song for our little white console, but ultimately it's flown a little too close to the sun.

    An excellent game and a great value, but not perfect. It has many improvements, but one or two of the new features cancel out some of the strides forward.

    Crashmo is pure puzzling gold and one of the best titles available for 3DS. If you haven't already experienced the exquisite Pushmo, now couldn't be a better time to get on board the Crashmo express.

    The most important thing about this game is that it's realistic, which means that the immersion value is definitely higher than in a fantasy game like "TimeSplitters 2."

    There are plenty of nitpicks that can be made about Mega Man Legacy Collection, but at its core, the title is a compilation of some of the best games of the 8-bit era.

    It’s a 2D shooter-platformer that has one eye on the past and the other on the present, coalescing to form a game that firmly takes the genre another step forward into the future.

    While the game might not be the greatest single player adventure we've seen this year, it very well may be the best multi-player one.

    This game is a true classic, and hopefully the first of many more to come from Yacht Club Games. Bravo.

    The high-speed racing, combined with a dedicated combat interface, makes for a exciting mix without placing too much emphasis on the vehicle-versus-vehicle matches.

    A game well worth the price tag. For $29.99, this is a bargain in an age where the average Wii game is about $49.99. I'd recommend you all to pick it up, especially if you love rhythm games or at least enjoy the strange and surreal. Just be careful not to chuck your Wii remote at the screen if you end up sucking at it.

    Most importantly, Eurocom nails the Bond look and feel, letting Wii owners step into the shoes of the secret agent.

    While it may not be quite the evolutionary leap forward that Super Mario Galaxy was, Super Mario 3D Land is still a vital installment in the long-running franchise.
