Dragon Sinker Review

Just because something is "retro inspired" doesn't always make it good. I've played some good retro inspired games and some pretty bad ones too. For me, a retro inspired game should be like an old game but doesn't have to completely ignore modern conveniences like "save anywhere" and multiple modes of difficulty.

Mario Sports Superstars Review

When Nintendo launched the Mario Sports Remix on the Wii a number of years ago, I was super skeptical and assumed a mash-up of sports in a single game - ala the Winter and Sumer Olympic Game titles - would be a fairly short experience, with little replayability outside of parties with friends and family.

Legna Tactica Review

Final Fantasy Tactics. Disaega. Fire Emblem. Legna Tactica. Wait. What was that last one? Legna Tactica is a brand new strategy rpg for the 3DS eshop. Much like the other games named, you’ll be moving your characters across squares in various levels. Legna Tactica shares a lot in common with the games I mentioned, but is it a good game or just a cheap rip-off of other strategy rpgs? Legna Tactica has way too much dialogue! Its similar to Fire…

Lifespeed Review

When I bought my New 3DS, I knew there wasn’t many exclusive games for it. Still, I really wanted one of the systems because the SNES Virtual Console and also how the system improved on the internet browser. Its always great to see the occasional New 3DS exclusive game though! When I heard about Lifespeed coming to the New 3DS, I knew I wanted to review it. A fast racing game in the style of F-Zero for New 3DS?! I…

Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World Review

When Yoshi's Woolly World launched on the Wii U last year it was met with high praise, and for good reason. Graphically, it was a masterpiece; the graphics were supported by outstanding sound and the great platforming elements we've come to expect from a quality Yoshi's title. With the release on 3DS, Nintendo has brought the Woolly world to a whole new audience.

Dragon Quest 8 Review

Bringing all of these older Dragon Quest games to the Nintendo 3DS is a brilliant idea, and I'm loving every minute of it. Although Dragon Quest 8 doesn't boast the obvious improvements we saw in Dragon Quest 7

Shift DX Review

In Shift DX for the 3DS, you manipulate an environment to solve each level. Turn the level upside down, grab a key to move things that are blocking your way or seek out the light bulb to make other things disappear.

Ice Station Z Review

You are alone, out in the middle of nowhere with nothing, and a bunch of zombies want to kill you. Well, unless you play the online mode and then there are people everywhere and not many zombies.

Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure Review

Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure is an action adventure platformer for the 3DS eshop. We’ve seen a few games like this on 3DS but what makes Gurumin different is that it is a fully three dimensional game and more like something we’d see from a retail game. In fact, Gurumin 3D seems like a game that fans of Mario and Zelda would like, but is that true? Is Gurumin 3D a fun addition to the 3DS eshop? The story in…

Epic Word Search Holiday Special Review

My dad and I really love Lightwood Games word puzzle games. So whenever Lightwood puts out a new word puzzle game, I have to review it because I know it’ll most likely be good and something we’ll want to play. The newest word game from Lightwood Games is called Epic Word Search Holiday Special and its for the 3DS. As the name suggests, the word puzzle focus is on holidays this time. Is this another word puzzle game that you’ll want to download?
