[F]or those who like dungeon/raid feels, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate should scratch that itch for you. No, it's not an MMO, but it's a strong example of what MMOs that want to focus on that aspect should be doing. Being on the 3DS means the game also can function as a mobile MMO-like game; it worked well on a connection from my phone after I went over my data limit while I was in Japan, which was quite impressive. There are hours of content to explore, either alone or in groups.
I hate giving such a low score to a game inspired by a childhood favorite, in a genre that tends to excite me, that tried to bring innovation and immersion to a generally simple genre. However, the fact remains that the game is divisive at the least. I can't imagine a non-gamer being able to appreciate this game, and gamers have already shown that not all of them can appreciate this title. Had it not been Nintendo or Star Fox, I feel the design choices alone would have doomed this title.
Episode 1 of Batman: The TellTale Series is well worth your time if you’re a Batman fan, and can act as a great way to introduce people to the character as well. Tweaking some of Batman’s traditional mythos and focusing more on Bruce Wayne makes the character more accessible to both new and old fans.
Batman: The TellTale Series feels like it gives you the chance to make a lot of important feeling decisions, but sometimes it’s in situations that immediately feel contrived. Later use of them may slightly help redeem them, and choices that continue themes of the game — personal vs. private life, justice vs. vengeance, society vs. the individual– still feel relevant, it’s just a shame that the plot’s seams sometimes become very exposed.
Even for those who own the original Mario Kart 8, after re-evaluating my score, I'd still give the game an 8 overall, and I think that says a lot about what's actually in the game. Plus, we have the Splatoon inklings, Zelda's Link, and Animal Crossing characters available altogether now, without being in a Smash Bros game. Really, what more do you want?
