That is what Super Smash Bros. for Wii U delivers, unlike a lot of other major game releases this year, which have been major disappointments this year. Smash Wii U is a breath of fresh air, and there is so much to do that I know i'll get hundreds of hours out of the game.… Expand

The amount ofTHE GOOD: Its beautiful to look at. The story starts off somewhat simple but evolves into a very deep story full of plot twists. The amount of variety in attacks makes for excellent replay value. The game uses the gamepad very well Excellent voice acting for most characters. Insane bosses that are some of the most fun and memorable boss fights i've ever experienced in a game. Its challenging even on the easiest difficulty. Its got a decent amount of length, not really a short game. The characters are cool, even if they are somewhat of comic book stereotypes. There is a lot of strategy required. You cannot simply mash a button to win in this game.
THE NOT-SO GOOD: There is somewhat of a learning-curve you may need to adjust to. Sometimes in rare cases the screen will zoom out of place on the characters so that they are hard to see. Wonder-Green has an annoying voice lol
This is a must own for Wii U. MUST BUY!… Expand

Uncharted 3, however, has both an extremely satisfying campaign and fantastic online. The single player is an extremely immersive story. Its a wild ride from beginning to end. The graphics are truely fantastic, not because they are realistic, but because they're simply visually appealing. Online is a fast paced frenzy with very athletic moves that can be done. Shooting mechanics are highly responsive. It seems like a very competitive online community so be prepared for a challenge. The game is polished to the max it seems!
THE BAD: There is a part of me that kinda wishes that the campaign was longer.
Uncharted 3 is perhaps the best non-open-world shooter of the 7th generation of gaming. MUST BUY! MUST OWN!… Expand
Average User Score: 8.4Apr 29, 2014THE GOOD: Mario's sidescrolling adventures have always been brilliant, but they never were strong in the co-op department. This game changesTHE GOOD: Mario's sidescrolling adventures have always been brilliant, but they never were strong in the co-op department. This game changes that. Being able to go through levels with friends is even better. But this is an experience that is fun both alone and with friends. Level design and graphics are improved from the original NSMB on the DS. The game is visually appealing from beginning to end. Boss battles have more variety. The final boss is one of the best boss battles ever in a Mario game.
THE BAD: Why stop at 9 worlds? I wish there were even more of them to play through. A level builder would've been really cool as well. And I guess there is also a part of me that wishes there was an online mode.
Overall, this is a quality game that i'll likely enjoy for years to come. MUST BUY! MUST OWN!… Expand

The battleTHE GOOD: This is one of the best pokemon titles of all time. Colorful and beautiful art style. The game has quite a long length. The battle system is satisfying. You can once again customize your team with the hundreds of Pokemon available. Map layout is designed brilliantly, and features a wide variety of climates and areas. There is an added Battle Frontier mode after the main story in this version that can also be fun to play.
THE BAD: There are similarities to Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. Not a lot of changes. There is a lack of animations compared to other RPG games of this era.
The third generation of pokemon games was highly overlooked. This game is a MUST BUY! A MASTERPIECE!… Expand

ATHE GOOD: The puzzle-solving gameplay is quite satisfying. Nice cartoony art style. Very clever puzzles and variety of ways to solve them. A lot of levels, including a challenge mode. There is a mode that allows you to make your own levels and share them with friends. Music is very catchy and fun to listen to. Great use of the DS touch screen controls.
The BAD: It can get a bit repetitive. Somewhat light on story as well.
I'd say it is worth a buy. Nothing groundbreaking, but enjoyable.… Expand

A great cast of characters, nice graphics, good soundtrack, responsive controls, and a large variety of game modes, on top of an already polished experience. You can get a lot of enjoyment out of this title, and it has aged better than many other fighters of the same generation. Heck, its even better than the original Super Smash Brothers!
THE BAD: There could have been just a bit larger character cast,

Average User Score: 7.7Nov 11, 2013THE GOOD: The single player has a couple levels that are fun enough that you can play them multiple times. It gives a reasonable challengeTHE GOOD: The single player has a couple levels that are fun enough that you can play them multiple times. It gives a reasonable challenge with a controls scheme that works. The Story mode has cool stories that go through each of the main characters. Maps are large with lots of stuff that is destroyable. Single player boss battles can be fun to fight.
THE BAD: The single player is hugely lacking in content and is not particularly very long. The game lacks many characters that were in previous Twisted Metal titles. Graphically, it looks dull. Online just isn't really worth playing. Connection issues are constant and its annoying to wait such a long time for matches that can be short. There are some glitches that can be annoying as well. And sometimes the game just isn't fun to play at all
Its was good to see Sweet Tooth and others return, but it just didn't live up to the hype that it was given, due to its barebones experience both online and offline. SKIP IT! But at least I can get my hopes up that Twisted Metal on the PS4 will be a better game.… Expand

The gameplay usually involves Mario using a water jetpack named FLUDD to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. Level designs are fantastic and are all built around one big island. The levels are varied, including beaches, hotels, airstrip, a volcano, a theme park, and many others. Voice acting and music are surprisingly great. The game rewards you for exploration. Its a very satisfying experience. Plenty of shine sprites to collect so plenty to do in the game.
THE BAD: Hmm, surprisingly, I really don't have much bad to say about this game. Sure, i'll admit that it lacks the impact on the gaming industry that Super Mario 64 had, but thats really about it.
This is a MUST OWN! MUST BUY! One of the best games that the platforming genre has to offer.… Expand

THE BAD: This game simply hasn't aged as well as its sequels on the Gamecube and Wii. It also lacks the large amount of content and game modes of its successors. The character cast is also barebones compared to them.
This classic title can admittedly be fun for a few hours, but it overall lives in the shadow of its superior sequels. I guess I could say its worth either borrowing or renting.… Expand
