Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition
Top Critic Average
Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition is difficult, fun, and addicting all at the same time. Despite its challenge and difficultly, the game is crafted and balanced enough where you're constantly learning and constantly inspired to work harder to conquer whatever stands in your path.
This is a special game. It also puts me in a bit of a quandary. The original game came out last year, but should this version receive game-of-the-year consideration? I have five months to figure that out, because it's the best game I've played in 2014.

G!STCE is an amazing achievement for an indie studio. The game is a perfect example of a Metroidvania style adventure and although it takes a lot of cues from its predecessors, it adds enough of its own originality to stand out from the crowd. I hope DrinkBox decide to bring back Juan and his world for a second outing in a sequel. For such a popular genre among gamers, it's surprising how few Metroidvanias actually make it out to mainstream consoles.
Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition takes one of the best games last year and makes it better. If you're a platform fan, a brawler fan, an action fan, hell, if you've ever eaten a tortilla, you owe it to yourself to give Guacamelee! a try. It's smart, stylish, and funny, all while being one of the most sharply tuned games around. Better yet, it's free for Xbox One Gold members this month. Go play it.
Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition is a great ode to Mexican culture, with an amazing gameplay.

Guacamelee! is as amazing as ever. And now that it's migrated to nearly every platform, everyone can enjoy it.
A longer running time helps address one of the few flaws with the original game, and single-handedly makes up for the lack of official new Metroid and Castlevania games.
As fun in this beefed-up incarnation as in its original release, Guacamelee Super Turbo Champion Edition offers one of the best-designed and most original takes on the well-worn metroidvania phenomenon you'll ever find. The new material may not quite bring enough to the table to warrant a second purchase, and the game doesn't exactly push PS4 or Xbox One to the ragged edge of their capabilities, but once again excellent game design has less to do with technical specs and more to do with creativity and thoughtfulness: Features Guacamelee possesses in spades.
[W]ith persistent cooperative play and plenty of exploration, genuinely fun combat, and gorgeous 1080p graphics, it's hard to find a better value for your digital currency of choice.
