    I love every part of this game, and the benefits of this Wii U version are easy to appreciate.

    The quirkiness of The Legend of Kusakari is probably its best feature. It doesn’t take itself seriously and that’s a major part of the fun.

    Between solo and multiplayer content, Tumblestone is filled to the brim with content. If the concept hooks you, the amount to do is near endless. The single-player campaign can get very demanding, but even if the challenge halts your progress, the endless modes and multiplayer modes offer fun no matter what your skill level is. This is the strongest new puzzle game concept in a very long time.

    It is disappointing that the game wasn't shooting for anything grander. In its current state, I only saw myself playing short sessions before moving on to other games. All in all, I would recommend it more if you want to play it on the Nintendo 3DS. That is where the game shines the most.

    It is an incredibly charming resource simulator that is made to be played on a Nintendo 3DS. The controls are easy enough that anyone can start playing, but the gameplay will challenge everyone who tries it.

    Federation Force is absolutely a Metroid Prime game. It incorporates fresh ideas and presents them in unique ways, but it never forgets where it comes from. The co-op online shooter genre is a bold new venture for Nintendo, and one they’ve taken to with surprising aptitude. The odd lack of a retry button ads a noticeable hiccup to an otherwise wonderful experience, but it is one that is easily overcome with a little patience.

    Ambition of the Slimes is a frustratingly mediocre game. I wanted to enjoy the experience, but I think I’ll stick to pasting Goomy going forward rather than try and fight through more maps in 8-on-1 battles.

    Definitely look into it if you have a creative spark or just love rhythm games.

    Buddy & Me: Dream Edition is one of the strongest endless runners on the Wii U.

    Like with seemingly every Lego game, if you’re not into the source material, buyer beware. But if you’re into Star Wars and want to relive the thrill of The Force Awakens, this is the best way to do so.

    While not an enormous step forward nor the celebration of the past we were promised, Monster Hunter Generations pushes its franchise forward with a number of combat enhancements that change the way Monster Hunter is played.

    While I personally don’t feel it reaches the highs of the Etrian Odyssey series, it’s still a compelling and unique RPG with diverse classes and engaging turn-based combat.

    BoxBoxBoy might be a must-buy, but it does feel like DLC for a game I’ve never played.
    • 48 Metascore

    Mighty No. 9 isn’t a bad game, but it’s generic in gameplay quality and suffers from technical issues that hamper the experience.
    • 83 Metascore

    Weird trials-by-payment aside, Megamix is firing on all cylinders for me; if you’ve ever been curious about the series or you’re already a fan, this is a great way to jump in…as long as you’re jumping on the beat.

    Dragon Fantasy: Tome of Ice is a good game, made with heart, but I just didn’t find it very engaging. The whole thing feels kind of vanilla, with the exception of the writing. I suspect your mileage will vary based on how much of a fan you are of SNES-era RPGs.

    But what should have been a great finale stumbles a bit due to some odd game design and creative decisions.

    If you’re a fan of games like Pac-Man, Dig Dug, and Mappy, I think you’ll find Digger Dan DX to be right up your alley.

    Overall I had fun, it’s a nice title to pick up and chill out with for a couple minutes every once in a while. I’m disappointed they didn’t create a more challenging algorithm that could match similar mobile games though, it just seems like they put in an abundance of data just to let it fall to the sidelines.

    The colorful world, the characters, the battle system and so much more brings this game together in a major way. I could nag about the loading times and small hub worlds more, but Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE does too many things well for it to really matter. There are very few RPGs that I wanted to see 100% completed, but darn, I am glad that it is this one.

    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.

    Futuridium EP Deluxe is a really interesting space shooter puzzle hybrid that works flawlessly.

    We had no reason to return after our initial run, so the security guard's tale probably won't generate much buzz.

    From the first moment you encounter the mech suit to when you hop on a Warp Star after beating the final boss, Planet Robobot is a joyous adventure built on a foundation of fun abilities, engrossing level design, and boundless delight.

    Super Meat Boy remains a fun game, even after many years of waiting. The hard as nails platformer will provide hours of levels and secrets to uncover for those in the need of a challenge.

    Olympia Rising has a beautiful presentation and neat elements to boot, but ultimately does a bit too little to bring excitement.
    • 57 Metascore

    It does what it says on the tin and the game is competent enough to give it a go. There is nothing really outstanding about the game.

    If you’re looking for a solitaire game with a bit of pizzaz and a novel wrapper, Pocket Card Jockey is straight-up magic. The cartoony, goofy setup hides a deep, complicated experience filled with a variety of minute details. Just let yourself get washed over by the bright zaniness and enjoy clearing cards, moving horses, and ideally, winning all the races.

    This is a Picross game condensed into a smaller wrapper than usual, but fortunately, it’s a pleasant Zelda wrapper.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    No matter how low this game gets on the eShop or in stores, it's not worth the time or effort to play it.
