Like 3D Land on the 3DS before it, Super Mario 3D World is a must have for existing owners and enough for anyone on the fence to make the plunge. Similarly, while it isn't a strong case for the Wii U's unique features, that doesn't make it anything less special. It's platforming perfection, brimming with clever ideas and flawless execution.

Of course, the benefit with Adventures is that you know exactly what cards you'll unlock, so it's still a good investment if you know the cards are right for you. But even if we think the spoils aren't quite as good as last time, 'Blackrock Mountain' is an Adventure that in many ways hits harder than 'Curse of Naxxramas' did.

Between its expanded soundtrack and new modes, there's more than enough for reason for fans of Theatrhythm to revisit Curtain Call. But if you missed out previously and enjoy Final Fantasy, this is a tremendous package. As a tribute to a franchise's greatest moments, it's almost unparalleled in its breadth and attention to detail, and whether you're a long-time fan or someone who has only skimmed through a few core entries, there's no better way to revisit the series.

Azran Legacy adds the right amount of variety to make this final entry feel as fresh as when the series was first introduced, cementing Professor Layton as one of the finest adventure franchises to grace a Nintendo handheld.

The lure of a new Raid and higher level cap gives renewed purpose to Bungie's excellent social shooter. But by so thoughtlessly wiping away the hard work players put in with the previous end-game, we're now a little reluctant to do the same hard work again this time around. Hopefully, March's expansion will be approached more carefully to restore some confidence.
