    Granted, the difficulty curve is quite steep, but that shouldn’t stop you from having some fun with it. I just wish there was a little more variation in the music. Overall, the game was very enjoyable and is definitely at least worth checking out.

    Art Style: Aquia is an original take on the match-three puzzle genre, and its ominous setting make for a nice puzzle environment. However, it lacks variety and is quite difficult.

    Graphics and sound are excellent, but the level design is uninspired and repetitive. Its control scheme is effective and easily mastered, but some of the moves are clumsy to execute and can lead to costly mistakes.

    If you can deal with the length and some repetitive sounds, you can have a good time with this weird little adventure.

    While I can’t recommend it to everyone, if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind a punishing grind and some badly designed mechanics, there’s a lot to love under the surface.

    Thankfully, as with From Outcast to Savior, you can use this new Viking Elite class in the other modes of the game. So if you manage to find someone to play with, or just want to grind for upgrades, you’ll have an extra way of doing it, which might make this new expansion more appealing. Otherwise, this is just more of the same if you’re only interested in the single player.

    All in all, Active Life: Outdoor Challenge separates itself from Wii Fit as its own game, and succeeds quite well at it. While the different activities have a dearth of variety, it is still a fun experience for all ages.

    That narrative itself is scattered throughout journals and archives accessible through the main menu, and discovering just what went wrong on the Starship Damrey is half the fun. It's filled to the brim with twists and humor, but I really would have loved to see the game fleshed out a bit more.

    Despite its simplistic premise, Overlord: Minions ramps up in complexity pretty quickly, yet remains quite fun. If you’re a fan of environmental puzzle-based games with cooperation elements (did you like The Lost Vikings?), you'll get a kick out of Overlord: Minions.

    Balloon Pop Remix won't supplant the Tetrises and the Dr. Marios of the world, but it's a fine puzzle game that presents a complete package on the eShop.

    A title that any Rocky fan (or even boxing fans in general) must have, even if the actual game itself has some pretty nasty flaws.

    My biggest complaint is that the game just isn't memorable, and there are other shooters I'd rather play.

    Dokapon Journey is a good game, and while it is heavily inspired by its console cousin there are enough differences that keep it from being a shameless console-to-portable port.

    If you're looking for a game to make use of that eagle eye of yours, then it makes sense to try Spot It! Mean Machines.

    At the end of the day, I enjoyed what Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games on Wii U tried to deliver. While the limited amount of events are the major downer here, I had fun playing them alone or with my friends. They found unique ways to represent the events, which is what matters at the end of the day. I do expect that the majority will be disappointed with the lack of specific Mario and Sonic touches, which is totally justified.

    Overall, Grill-Off with Ultrahand is merely a novelty that should provide brief moments of fun. But at a mere 80 Club Nintendo coins, it is an enjoyable piece of Nintendo memorabilia that old school Nintendo fans should appreciate.

    While not the best 3D platformer on the market, it is definitely a massive improvement from "Enter the Dragonfly" and will provide gamers with some good fun.

    The lack of additional modes and endearing mini-games also aid in making Mario Sports Mix a fun try but not a lifetime investment.

    If you’re hankering for a bite-sized arcade experience that is heavy on fun and light on content, Pirate Pop Plus is fantastic.

    Call of Duty: Ghosts is an alright game, but it doesn't push the boundaries as much other entries in the franchise.

    Monopoly Streets is a great game as it is, but considering that the core Monopoly experience is available on other platforms at a much better value, it is difficult to recommend this edition specifically.

    All of this makes for a meaty package, but the gameplay does feel repetitive and unfair at times. Revenge of the Fallen is clearly meant for big fans of the license, but is still a solid game on its own.

    It is fun, uses real recipes, and has decent controls, but it only has 12 different recipes to prepare, which equates to about three hours of gameplay.

    The best thing I can compare the missions to is a crap sandwich on two really great slices of rye. The first and last missions are awesome and show off some sweet cinematics as well as fantastic gameplay.

    Lost In Shadow overstays its welcome, which is disappointing. If the game had been less ambitious in scale and more ambitious in content, it would perhaps be one of the best games in recent memory. Instead, it falls just short of something truly great.

    All in all, it’s a decent game. To the dedicated gamers out there who love a hard challenge, Wooden Sen’SeY might be for you. It’s lovely to see the atmosphere that Upper Byte Studio has created, but is only lovely until you start dying more times than you can count.

    All said, for the price of admission, Red Game Without a Great Name has more to offer than its lacking title would imply. With the likely frustration factor as you get further in it seems mostly suited to playing in shorter bursts, the levels are generally very quick to either complete or fail at before it takes you right back into the action again. If you enjoy some challenge and undoubtedly some aggravation in your gaming, it’s not a bad budget title to check out.

    Amazingly, the game still manages to be rather fun if you can get past the warts.

    Despite a lack of real longevity, it's hard not to be impressed with Michael Jackson: The Experience 3D. This game could have been a quick and dirty port of the DS/PSP version, but instead Triumph International really put some effort and care into the game, and it shows.

    If you’re a fan of physics-based puzzle games, you can do far worse than Ohno Odyssey.
