    BattleBlock Theatre

    BattleBlock Theater is here to do for puzzle platforming what Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers did for side-scrolling combat. If The Behemoth's two previous games proved anything it was that old fashioned genres can be rejuvenated... more

    Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

    Luigi's Mansion 2

    Good ideas, brilliantly executed, this is one of the year's best games. Gunpoint begins with two adjacent buildings, cross-sectioned and zoomed out, the whole scene visible. Smooth jazz is backed by ambient rainfall when,... more

    Super Mario 3D World

    The game that deserves to sell Wii Us the world over... A major and fair criticism of recent Mario games has been their inclination to keep things rather familiar. Whereas Galaxy introduced new ideas, the likes of New Super... more
