There are better ways to get your superhero action fix, but there are worse ones, too. Crackdown 3 is at least worth a try.

Buy it if you're looking for deep, twitchy multiplayer action. Try it if you'll be sticking to single player.

Try it if you really want to see how hard it is to make branching narrative work on this scale. Otherwise, just catch up on Westworld.

Those with a high tolerance for repeating difficult 2D shooting challenges should buy it. Everyone else should try it in Simple mode or just by watching on YouTube.

Buy it if you're ready to be an exceptionally patient pet owner. Watch some videos online otherwise.

Buy it for the excellent collection of built-in Nintendo-made levels. Get the Wii U version if you want to actually make your own.

Unscored - Mario Kart 8
May 15, 2014

All in all, these missing features and changes for the worse are disappointing blemishes on what is still an incredibly enjoyable game.
