    A (relatively) speedy time trial title that may satisfy racing fans for a while, but hardly a precision-engineered gem. [Sept 2014, p.90]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 66 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A robust package that oozes colour and charm, but lacks the variety necessary to maintain excitement and appeal beyond its dedicated fan base. [Sept 2014, p.88]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The game never misses a trick to punish recklessness and complacency. [Sept 2014, p.87]

    • 90 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    It looks good, it plays good, it probably even tastes good. You fingers will dance across the pad like tiny digital ballerinas as you suplex your way to victory. [Sept 2014, p.86]

    • 38 Metascore

    There's no need for Rise of the Dark Spak to be as dull as it's turned out. [Sept 2014, p.84]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    This game is all about trial and error. You will die frequently and tragically. [Sept 2014, p.82]

    Old and new in almost the best ways. [Sept 2014, p.78]

    A superior selection of 8-bit hits makes Remix 2 a fine sequel. [July 2014, p.84]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 84 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    An aesthetically pleasing wonder for the eShop. It might be a short game, but it's definitely worth the asking price. [July 2014, p.82]

    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    As magnificently, defiantly old-school as ever, Millenium Girl introduces enough new elements to come away feeling fresh and rarely compromised. [July 2014, p.81]

    It's a genuine opinion-splitter. [July 2014, p.80]

    Though it re-treads some of the same ground as the original, Pullblox World is more of what we loved on 3DS: challenging yet simple and a joy to play.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Though the game varies from too restrictive to too free, it's an excellent little sandbox for learning to draw your favourite Pokémon.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Level-5 successfully overcomes our Inazuma fatigue with a cheery addition to the series that is a great hopping-on point for newcomers. Good stuff.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Though the tempo is rather tricky, Fun Unit's offering takes the cube route to a decent eShop game. [June 2014, p.89]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • tbd Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    Not bad, as far as hidden-object games go, but utterly unnecessary on the 3DS. Get it on PC, if you must. [June 2014, p.89]

    The rendering of the chess pieces is superb. [June 2014, p.89]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 51 Metascore
    • 54 Critic Score
    Fun and sweet at first, but overall a bit of a cat-astrophe that would make more sense as an endless runner. [June 2014, p.88]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's hard to care about villagers when they are all generic-faced repetition bots. [June 2014, p.86]

    Released somewhat prematurely, LEGO The Hobbit feels like more of a promotional tie-in than a proper standalone game. Still: lots of fun to be had. [June 2014, p.78]

    • 65 Metascore

    Lack of tactical options makes you feel powerless. [June 2014, p.76]

    Kirby is more at home on 3DS than he ever was on Wii as HAL cooks up a delightful adventure that is perfect fodder for the young and young-at-heart.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 96 Critic Score
    It's that confidence that encompasses everything here - Mario Kart 8 steps boldly out of the shadows of its predecessors, using their systems, ideas, even tracks, but adapting them to fit its own vision of a truly skilful game that people will obsess over, learning lines, kart set-ups and tricks, but never abandoning what it is people loved about the series.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Short, but never quite sweet, Wii U's first budget game does exactly what you'd expect, good and bad. [May 2014, p.91]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This is surely one of the most intensely frustrating games ever, but is not rewarding enough to be worthwhile. [May 2014, p.90]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 64 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    An undeniably unique concept is all but irretrievably marred by some stern presentation and a lack of basic utilities. [May 2014, p.90]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 58 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Vibrant, simple stuff aimed squarely at a generation who know Pac as a superpowered teenage hero, rather than the characterless, quip-free globe of old. [May 2014, p.89]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 59 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Not worth the exorbitant eShop price. [May 2014, p.88]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A strange, excellent new take on the genre. [May 2014, p.86]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Its difficulty curve may frustrate younger gamers, but Squids Odyssey is a fun and unique, turn-based action game that's worth spending a few squids on. [May 2014, p.85]
