The best Smash Bros. in the series to date, giving the Wii U version a lot to live up to.
A triumph of emergent gameplay, slightly let down by a heavily scripted ending.
A confident reinvention, despite the obviously low budget.
There's a sublime game of football in here, but overpowered goalkeepers and a lack of innovation sour the experience.
Shadow Warrior is old-school in all the right ways, bringing the original into the modern era while leaving some of its less desirable aspects in the past where they belong.
A beautiful, if somewhat frustrating, adventure game.
Hyrule Warriors is fun, pays decent fan service, and uses the Dynasty Warriors template well.
Flawed, yes. Fun? Certainly. A total failure? Not really.
The feature list is bare, but the Sims themselves are incredible.
It’d be nice to see an entry focused entirely on Sony’s latest console, but for now this is yet another supremely playable shmup title with oodles of replay value and a twist of originality.
