    The title just has some sort of magic to it, in spite of its humor and deliberate cheesiness, that encourages good vibes, especially by the time the over-the-top finale is completed.

    The story is fascinating and the use of voice acting to tell it tops "The Wind Waker," in my opinion. On the whole, however, there is nothing here that you haven't experienced before.

    If you're looking for a great long-lasting game that's consistently fun from open to close, quit reading this stupid review and drive to the store.

    There are several ways the series can grow in its already rumored sequel, but, for now, we have a brand new toy to master, a killer soundtrack to play it with, lots of in-game unlockables, and new downloadable mash-ups to add to the library for the foreseeable future.

    With the excellent visuals, quality Nintendo charm, and hours upon hours of replay value, there's just nothing to hate about this game... except for Sherbet Land. So much hate!

    Everything about Donkey Kong Country Returns is so fluid and smooth. Retro constantly surprises players with new game mechanics, striking set pieces and tons of Donkey Kong charm. This title is quite possibly the definitive side-scrolling platform experience for Wii.

    Adventure games are often compelling but hinge upon primitive, boring gameplay. Capcom shows how all future adventure games should be designed: with engrossing gameplay that both intuitively and innovatively solves puzzles.

    Having played this game for a relatively long time, I have to warn that even though you will get your money's worth and many, many hours of play, it does end up getting very tedious after a couple of weeks.

    The gameplay is also polished and strong as well, continuing to prove the impossible feat of designing a game with a multitude of complex game mechanics all being distilled into stylus-based touchscreen controls.

    The mere fact that this game has the power to rekindle those early feelings of PokéBliss in even the most seasoned-Pokémaniacs is a testament to its freshness and originality.

    Yes, it's a frustrating game, to be sure. But it’s the warm, fuzzy kind of frustrating.

    Pikmin 3 might not be the game that gets people rushing to buy a Wii U, but it certainly should be.
    • 87 Metascore

    For future releases in this series, it’d be nice if there were more customization options and musical selections but those are minor gripes to what was, generally, a favorable experience.

    The game is great, through and through, albeit short.

    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.

    Talk about a lot of bang for your buck: ten dollars for a fully functional online Bomberman.

    Aesthetic and functional design, boundless creativity, fantastic soundtrack.

    It has longevity, charm, and controls that endure the wild departure from traditional platformers and make a highly enjoyable game. It comes highly recommended.

    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.

    A fine continuation of what's shaping up to be quite an epic RPG series.

    Gamers looking for an in-depth boxing sim will not find it here. Those looking for wonderful puzzles to solve, characters to fall in love with, and music that will stick for years, this is your game. Punch-Out!! is going to be easily regarded as one of the stand out titles of this year on any system and is a must-own game for Wii owners.

    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.

    Fantastic. With an insane plot, goofy characters and some incredibly well-designed gameplay, this is a game which should be on the must-buy list of any DS owner who does not hate fun.

    With a variety of modes, great stylus control and online play, Intelligent Systems has come up with a puzzle game that's hard to beat.

    The best part about it is that there's something new going on every day, whether it's a new neighbor moving in, a nasty snowstorm on the horizon, or a holiday party at City Hall.

    While these lackluster mini-games are no hidden-object puzzle or "make your own tea" chemistry set (as seen in Laytons 1 and 2), Unwound Future still has a solid set of puzzles for its main adventure, and the story itself is very engaging.

    Buying the Skylanders Trap Team Starter Set probably won’t be enough for you. Again and again, you’ll run into times when you wish you had just a little more cash to buy that colored trap, or that Skylander. But more than any Skylanders game before it, Trap Team makes you feel good about your purchases– even if it’s your kid that gets to enjoy them.

    I still can't help but feel that the game could have used just a little more content or even a few more graphical bells and whistles. Final word: great game.

    The charming storyline, the captivating characters and the amazingly fun battle system all puts together one of the best RPGs on the market. When all is said and done, this game has easily broken its way onto my top ten favorite RPGs of all time.
