    Yoshi's New Island Review

    Yoshi's New Island

    Mighty No. 9 Review

    Mighty No. 9

    Regardless of how much you like the Mega Man series, in Mighty No.9 you're unlikely to find a game that comes close to that legacy. I've played Mega Man, but I've never 'played' Mega Man. It's largely similar... more

    Ivy the Kiwi Review

    Ivy the Kiwi

    Ivy is charming and understated; a platform game that deserves credit simply for doing something new with an old formula. I saw a fair few kiwis when I was trekking about New Zealand with a... more

    Rayman 3D Review

    Rayman 3D

    Rayman 3D is as robust as it is enjoyable. It's certainly not going to set the world on fire, but it's a perfectly adequate filler until the chap in the red overalls turns up. Given Mario's no-show in the 3DS' launch line-up, it's fallen to Ubisoft's... more

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 Review

    New Super Mario Bros. 2

    There's plenty of unmemorable fun to be had here, but it's shocking how it only took three goes for Nintendo to make New Super Mario Bros. feel old. In New Super Mario Bros. 2, capitalism has zipped out of a warp pipe and... more

    Sonic Generations

    The blue blur is back, and he's rocking the platforming world once again. For fans of Sonic and platformers alike, this is absolutely essential. To kids, Sonic the Hedgehog is the closest thing to a cartoon rock star the... more

    Rayman Origins Review

    Rayman Origins

    A passionate tribute to the days when platform games ruled the Earth, but beyond that, it's also one of the best examples of the genre we've had in recent memory. This review was originally published for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3... more

    Skylanders: Giants Review

    Skylanders: Giants

    Despite the occasional glimpse of dollar signs in its publisher's eyes, Skylanders Giants is that rarest of beasts: a kids' game that's very, very easy for adults to like. The greatest trick Activision ever pulled was convincing the world that... more

    LEGO The Lord of the Rings Review

    LEGO The Lord of the Rings

    Lego Lord of the Rings is still a huge success that's wonderfully adorable and an absolute delight to play. You should never toss a dwarf, not unless you're very brave. Dwarves hate... more

    Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D Review

    Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

    Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is a fine throwback to yesteryear, lovingly brought forward to stand alongside its modern siblings. If there's one thing I've learned about myself in the last 2 weeks it's that... more

    Super Mario Maker 3DS Review

    Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS

    Super Mario Maker for 3DS is a perfect fit for the handheld, with loads of content and excellent creation tools, but why can't you share levels online? That decision is baffling. Super Mario Maker 3DS doesn't have online level sharing, and that's a... more

    Super Mario 3D Land Review

    Super Mario 3D Land

    Super Mario 3D Land is a step back and a leap forward. As a gateway drug for those reluctant to embrace Mario in three dimensions, the game should be a huge success. When you've conquered the galaxy twice, where do you go next? The universe... more

    Luigi's Mansion 2 Review

    Luigi's Mansion 2

    A few minor missteps don't manage to detract from what is one of the best games on the system. Being the less recognised half of a duo is tough. What do you do when your... more
