Simple, inspired, and constantly encouraging, Super Mario Maker gives players the freedom to enjoy Mario the way they like to the most. The pre-made levels are mostly just samples, but the real potential lies with the online community. Super Mario Maker not only respects Mario's 30-year history, it gives players the keys to the Mushroom Kingdom like never before.
Mario Party 10 is fun at times, but the experience is often dampened by its reliance on luck. The game may have a few redeeming qualities, but its strong random element and lack of compelling minigames makes this installment feel like a step back rather than the gameplay revamp that the series needs.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D is an immensely enjoyable experience. Fifteen years later, the time cycle idea is still fresh and it's astonishing that more games haven't attempted to make use of this unique gameplay style. The game's dark tone and heavy emphasis on emotion makes it truly stand out among Zelda titles and it is a story that won't soon be forgotten. The new features may be minimal, but there's never been a better way to play the most underrated game in the Zelda series.
Chariot is a fun, albeit slow-paced platformer with a refreshing art style and interesting concept. The puzzles are clever and require a strong balance of both planning and skills. However, the game's challenging difficulty, demanding precision, and emphasis on multiplayer may prove to be frustrating to some. Still, if you can look past these flaws, Chariot is an entertaining game that platforming fans should enjoy.
