If you were a fan of the NES original, DuckTales: Remastered is the definition of a must-own title. The game faithfully recreates the NES original while sprucing up the visuals, modernizing the music quality and even adding a couple new levels.

Skylanders SWAP Force may seem like a cash grab in some ways, but the game their figures belong to is just so charming and, well, fun, that this doesn't really seem like an issue. The gameplay's addictive, the figures are well-built– screw the haters. I'm a Skylanders fan.

Wii Sports Club is a fine addition to Wii U's library that pushes the series forward with the addition of solid online play. The core experience remains as compelling as ever, offering play control that is both satisfying and inviting to players of all skill levels. Though the presentation has been upscaled to HD, it still feels like a step backwards compared to Wii Sports Resort's bright and fun visuals. With only two sports currently available, Wii Sports Club isn't as robust an experience as it could be, but what is there will still keep players entertained for hours.

In the end Ghosts is indeed another Call of Duty game, but one of the weaker releases over the past few years. The new multiplayer modes are exciting, but they are bogged down by the low quality maps. If you just need a game to scratch your FPS itch, Ghosts will tide you over till another Call of Duty comes out, but if you are looking for a shooter that is surprising and profound, you are better off passing on Ghosts.

A or higher - Super Mario 3D World
Dec 1, 2013

With roughly 30-35 hours of gameplay, there's a lot to experience and love in 3D World. It's fun, it's gorgeous, and easily one of the best games on the stands.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is an amazing accomplishment; it manages to root itself deep in the fertile nostalgia millions of gamers have for A Link to the Past while simultaneously morphing classic Zelda mechanics and introducing brand new ideas that fit in perfectly with the storied franchise.

A- - Edge
Dec 3, 2013

EDGE is truly something special. The game oozes creativity and constantly introduces awesome concepts that keep you entertained. The whole experience lends itself perfectly to a pick up and play format, and can be highly addicting when trying to set the best time possible. EDGE's innovative gameplay, coupled with its fantastic level design, easily makes it one of my favorite games on the eShop thus far.

Everything about LEGO Marvel Super Heroes feels like a labor of love from TT Games. While it could have easily cut down on the amount of content and created just as successful a title, it instead built something far bigger. The result is a game filled with diverse playable characters, a New York City that feels ripped out of the comics and sights and sounds that bring the whole thing to life.

It's just too bad that this dungeon crawler just doesn't live up to what it looks like. Maybe next time, Finn. Maybe next time.

All things considered, Knytt Underground is still a fantastic game. I thoroughly enjoyed spelunking through the game's massive world, and even though the story can get lackluster, it does excel when it tackles its religious themes. Knytt Underground is an excellent addition to the eShop, and is perfect for anyone looking for a solid Metroidvania on Wii U

NES Remix is defined more by the sum of its parts than its individual pieces, so have no hesitation in jumping headfirst into this excellent retro experience.

Romance Dawn is a misfire all around that only the absolute most completist of One Piece fans should give it a look. It’s a shame, because One Piece is normally something quite wonderful. Such a waste.

Yoshi’s New Island suffers from a few issues, mainly the lackluster soundtrack and some new features feeling flat and shallow, but at its core this is a fun title that takes the classic platforming formula from the SNES game before it and brings it to 3DS. A pleasing art style, fun enemy encounters, and solid controls make Yoshi’s New Island a good, but not great, experience that’s worth your time overall.

Beyond the single player campaign, Triple Deluxe also offers a handful of other modes. Kirby Fighters is a fighting minigame that plays somewhat like a scaled-down Super Smash Bros., and Dedede's Drum Dash, a rhythm-platform minigame. While not beefy enough to warrant their own full games, both are excellent diversions and time killers.

Mario Golf: World Tour is a solid mix of great controls, crisp, colorful visuals, great replay value due to its amount of unlockable content, and is ultimately just a flat out great experience. Chalk this one up as another great 3DS title you should add to your library.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is fun, but flawed. It doesn't deliver a very unique experience, nor does it at all deliver a faithful adaptation of the film it's supposed to be based on. But as a longtime Spider-Man fan, I still had a really good time with it.

Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails is a truly original game that obviously required a great deal of thought, passion and creativity, something I really don't get to say nearly enough.

The only real flaw of Stick it to the Man is that it's too short. While I don't usually mind short experiences, I was a bit disappointed to finish such a fantastic game in three hours and have absolutely no incentive to replay any level.

MK8 is easily a top three contender for best Wii U game. Outside of a few niggling oddities and small blemishes, the pure bliss of soaring across MK8's wonderful courses is as close to gaming perfection as it gets.

Tomodachi Life isn't going to make all players happy. It can be a touch directionless, and the oddities of the Miis isn't universally appealing. In the end, though, this is the sort of game that open-minded players will love if they give it a chance. There is so much to do and see on a daily basis, it almost becomes compulsory to switch on the game and check in with the Miis. Not a lot of games have as much heart as Tomodachi Life, and I really hope that fans give it the shot it deserves.
