    A masterful work of art. It has it all: hilarious presentation, great aesthetic, stellar music, and compelling gameplay. It’s a rare sequel that improves on the original in every single way imaginable. I highly recommend this game, and it’s one of the best values you can get. You owe it to yourself to pick up this amazing title as soon as you can.

    New Super Mario Bros. U is Wii U's first must-have title, especially if you're a fan of Mario or platforming games. It's the culmination of the New Super Mario Bros. sub-series, and perhaps the best 2D Mario title since the SNES era. This is all thanks to how well it strikes a balance between the offering of recognizable mechanics and original ones.

    One of the most unique puzzle designs to come along in a while. Whether you like your thinking games slow and strategic or fast and chaotic, you'll find something to enjoy with this one.

    The story fills in most, if not all, of the plot holes from the series and provides a very engaging and entertaining ride.

    Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D doesn’t have enough to entice Wii owners back into the jungle, but if you haven’t yet made the trip to Kong Island, you’d be absolutely bananas to miss out.

    Many games become constrained and overridden by technical flaws and design problems, but No More Heroes breaks through with a cast of characters and story that exudes style and imagination.

    Sports fans will enjoy the level of off the field depth and control scheme depth here.

    While I can’t rank this title above my sentimental arcade racing favorite, "Burnout 2," I can tell you that this game is excellent and next year’s version will be the one to buy.

    Ghost Trick also proffers a satisfying and rewarding conclusion, wrapping up quite nicely, even with a complex plotline (a rarity in gaming).

    Any baseball fan looking for a wintertime hold-me-over will be happy with this sleeper gem, however it's played. As a hardcore baseball sim, it's every bit as good as the more familiar baseball games of the world, it just doesn't have the same look.

    Persona Q is a fantastic game that does so many things right.

    Using the pixels of the past, Inti Creates has made Mega Man 9 a title that easily stacks up with the franchise’s greats, such as Mega Man 2 or Mega Man 3.

    SS SV is the most satisfying, original, funny, amazing gaming experience I've had in a long while. This game is absolutely brilliant.

    It's far from a simple rehash of its ported cousins, and it manages to successfully carve out its own unique and compelling features that you won't find on the other iterations.

    One of the most interesting titles to come out for the Nintendo GameCube and any Cube gamer would be foolish to pass a game like this up.

    The gameplay variety and overall visual and audio experience is outstanding-- if only such a fun game were lengthier.

    The pay model is fair and flexible, the gameplay feels refreshed and is highly addictive, and it’s clear that Mallow and his companions will be part of the Nintendo family for many years to come.

    The core mechanic utilizes both screens intelligently and proffers a highly entertaining time.

    Overall, I found this game to be difficult to get into from a control perspective and then once I became familiar with the controls, the game was an exercise in frustration rather than a pleasure to play.

    This is the best possible tool for luring non-gamers into the fold, and they will likely not mind the shortcomings for joy of their newness to videogames.

    Watching other people play the game is a healthy chunk of the fun.

    Sonic games have always been known for their speed, but in Sonic Advance 2, it's been exaggerated almost to a fault.

    If you've ever loved a platforming game, you owe it to yourself to play Rayman 3, simple as that. This one's certain to go down as one of the biggest classics to ever hit the system.

    If you can get past the first five hours of mindless fun, Dragon Sword is an unparalleled experience on DS.

    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.

    Contra 4 will deliver everything veterans of the series could ever want, from the classic spread gun to music that brings orgasmic delight to the ears.
