Rodea The Sky Soldier review

[Reviewed on Wii U] This is an attempt by famed developer Yuji Naka to re-capture the lightning in a bottle that was Saturn classic Nights Into Dreams. Unfortunately, his new game has more of the nightmare about it, as Rodea returns to Earth with a bump just as soon as...

Story Of Seasons review

Developer Marvelous AQL has been associated with the Harvest Moon series since the Game Boy Advance days. It’s now separated from publisher Natsume, which still owns the IP, but be under no illusions: Story Of Seasons is still very much a Harvest Moon game in all but name. As ever,...

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros. review

When a certain moustached plumber waltzed his way out of the platforming genre and into the turn-based battles of the RPG back in 1996 we all laughed. Mario in a legitimate 15+ hour adventure? Bah! And then we all realised it was absolutely brilliant, wiped the crumbs of humble pie...

Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash review

This year, Chibi-Robo turns ten, but this fifth outing for the robotic handyman will only provide further frustration for fans praying he’ll one day become more than a bit player in Nintendo’s roster.

The Legend Of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes review

Where’s all the Zelda love gone? We’ve noticed a distinct lack of hype around this latest instalment and it’s not entirely clear why. Perhaps it’s because a multiplayer-focused game doesn’t quite get the pulse racing for fans of a series that’s consisted of predominantly solo affairs, or maybe it’s just...

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer review

Happy Home Designer is a release Nintendo will be watching with great interest. The game itself is one thing, but Nintendo is hopeful its success will trigger a new craze: amiibo card collecting. It’s a shame, then, that this focus on NFC gimmickry has come at the gameplay’s expense. Players...

Puzzles & Dragons Z + Super Mario Bros. Edition review

Confined to the screens of mobiles and tablets for the past few years, Puzzles & Dragons Z is the first instalment of the series to be made available for a set price, micro-transactions being scrapped here in favour of a flat fee. Incorporating the game’s traditional match-three battle system with...
