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 Tennis: Ultra Smash review

Time again for the Mushroom Kingdom’s answer to Wimbledon, but it’s not all strawberries and cream. Nintendo’s latest entry in the hybrid sports/party game errs closer to the latter, proving fun in a group, but not offering much more than grind when playing alone. The big addition – literally –...

Xenoblade Chronicles X review

For every massive way in which this sequel to the Wii title Xenoblade Chronicles builds on its predecessor’s accomplishments, it throws in a tiny disappointment too.

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...

Project Zero: Maiden Of Black Water review

The fifth game in Koei Tecmo’s Project Zero series (known elsewhere as Fatal Frame) is that rarest of beasts: a third-party Wii U exclusive, albeit one for which Nintendo has opted to take over publishing duties. The mysterious Mount Hikami is the setting this time. The forest area around the...
