10 / 10.0 - Shovel Knight
May 5, 2015

I would say it's a must play for anyone old enough to remember blowing on a cartridge, but that would be selling it short. Nostalgia certainly enhances the experience, but this is a great game for anyone.

For those who never played A Link to the Past, A Link Between Worlds is simply an exceptional game. For those like me who have fond memories of the original though, it feels like a carefully crafted love letter. Being able to explore an old world with a new twist was an absolute treat, and I loved visiting places and characters that I remembered from before, as well as discovering new ones. From the first musical notes of the opening to the last boss fight, the game is classic Zelda, and as soon as I finished it I was ready to start all over again. Simply put it’s one of the best games available on the 3DS or anywhere else, and it’s a must play.

The Taken King easily eclipses both previous Destiny expansions in quantity and quality of content, and goes a long way towards making Destiny the game what so many of us have wanted.

For those who loved the original like me, happiness awaits. After years of petitioning we have our Majora's Mask remake, and it's absolutely worth the time.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy doesn’t take the series in any new directions, but that’s not a bad thing. With more environmental variety and a faster moving story, the game addresses the main complaints I had with Miracle Mask. The puzzle variety is excellent, and I enjoyed the mini-games more than the last few games. With a full year of puzzles on top of what’s already in the game, puzzle enthusiasts will find a lot of enjoyment here.

It's a must play for series fans, and a great choice for anyone looking for a deeper take on the genre.

Players who missed this on the PS3 will find a lot to like here, but for those who have already completed it I doubt the graphical upgrade is worth another play through.

9 / 10.0 - Watch Dogs
Jun 6, 2014

Watch_Dogs borrows game play elements from GTA, inFamous and Assassin's Creed (among others), adds a hacking dynamic and pulls it all together into a great game. Despite some standout visuals though there's nothing here that feels like a leap forward in gaming, and I can't imagine the core game feeling much different had I played a last-gen version. It doesn't tarnish the experience, but players looking for a reason to need a new console still don't have one.

For players who enjoyed The Talos Principle, Road to Gehenna is exactly what it should be – more, harder puzzles and another opportunity to dig into a deep and interesting narrative.

8.5 / 10.0 - Jazzpunk
Feb 14, 2014

As a "game" Jazzpunk could be completed in less than an hour, but running through to complete the story would be missing most of what makes it so enjoyable. The game (and its achievements) are structured in a way that encourage players to wander around and see everything there is. Even having completed the game I'll be going back through it again, just to catch some of the things I missed.
