Spartan Assault ports many of Halo's best elements to the twin-stick shooter genre surprisingly well

8 / 10.0 - Resogun

Worthy of your time, but the lack of content doesn't encourage you to continually return to the game

5.8 / 10.0 - Tiny Brains
Dec 6, 2013

Some clever puzzles showcase glimmers of smart design, but overall this is an unpolished adventure with moments of unnecessary frustration

Pleasure from the single-player is derived entirely from your appreciation of time-based speed running. Multiplayer is where the game fulfills its potential

Layton is all about puzzles and story. The former stays true to the formula, and the latter is entertaining, even if some reveals are cringe-worthy

The single-player campaign is the main attraction, offering a fun experience that plays with Kirby's typical mechanics in interesting ways

A charming story and world coupled with a fun leaping mechanic kept me eager to progress, even when the difficulty spiked near the end

Some technical limitations hold Lifeless Planet back from being a completely immersive adventure, but ultimately the experience is memorable

7 / 10.0 - Crimsonland
Jul 31, 2014

With fun gameplay, interesting combat tactics, and cool weapons, Crimsonland almost elevates itself above its exceptionally boring presentation

The dancing is fun, as it always has been in Dance Central, but a number of discarded features and bugs make this the weakest game in the Dance Central series

This aggressive version of Zelda can become repetitious, but there are reasons to keep fighting

Neverending Nightmares is an examination of inescapable sadness and horror. I can't call it fun, but it left a lasting impression on me

Project Spark is whatever you want it be, but realizing your dream project can be difficult to pull off

This is a dense, content-rich package that raises the bar for remakes and re-releases. Whether you want to relive the campaigns or revisit multiplayer, you can find something here to enjoy

Lumino City is a gorgeous enough to grab anyone's attention, but stays within the boundaries of its genre conventions

Vying for points next to a collection of friends scratches many of the same multiplayer itches as Super Smash Bros.

Even without being remade, Majora's Mask stands as one of the most interesting and thought-provoking entries. The experience has only been made better for the 3DS

The gameplay will be familiar to fans of NES platformers, but there are plenty of surprises thanks to its shifting themes and levels

Rainbow Curse is different from any other platformer out there. I got frustrated by Kirby's insistence on staying rolled into a ball, but plenty of moments of innovation and fun appear throughout

The story is silly, but I enjoyed the excuse to revisit memorable moments from the show with a new, sometimes ridiculous lens
