    Paper Mario: Sticker is a fun game, but at the same time it feels unsatisfying in comparison with previous entries.

    I have a bad habit of reviewing games I got for Christmas in April. Better sooner than later! Anyways, as a huge fan of the Paper Mario series, I got Paper Mario Sticker Star for Christmas, and have never been so disappo... Read Full Review

    Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!

    Adventure Time on the 3DS is one of the best games available on the handheld, and is very faithful to the kickass show.

    I happen to be a big Adventure Time fan. The show combines bizarre and outrageously funny humor with surreal fantasy animation. What's even better is that this 3DS game not only captures the spirit of the show, it's actu... Read Full Review

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D isn't just a great soccer game, it's one of the best sports games I've ever played.

    I have never played too many soccer games, but I know a good one when I see it. And this 3DS edition of Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 (which was released as one of the launch titles for the system) isn't just good, it's amaz... Read Full Review

    Heroes of Ruin is very flawed, but it makes up with purely addicting hack and slash RPG gameplay for your 3DS.

    Heroes of Ruin

    Heroes of Ruin is very flawed, but it makes up with purely addicting hack and slash RPG gameplay for your 3DS.

    It's refreshing to see a game like Heroes of Ruin, in other words, something that isn't a remake or a sequel (not that that's a bad thing), but rather a new game. And this comes from the Gods of the RPG genre; Square Eni... Read Full Review

    Lego Pirates of the Caribbean on the 3DS is crazy fun, especially the first time you play it.

    Steel Diver

    Give it some time, and you'll find that Steel Diver is an enjoyable, thoughtfully constructed launch title for the 3DS.

    I remember when Steel Diver was bashed by critics and audiences upon its release as a launch title, mainly because it was based on a tech demo for the original DS. It's undeserved, because not many people give this game ... Read Full Review

    Banjo Tooie is harder to get into than its predecessor, but when you do, it exposes itself as an even better game.

    I absolutely love Banjo Kazooie (N64, 1998) like crazy. It played just like Mario 64 but with more of everything; bigger levels, dynamic music, great humor, awesome secrets, fantastic graphics, and pure exciting gameplay... Read Full Review

    New Super Mario Bros. 2

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 feels like DLC to the Wii version at best, but even then it's still a very fun 3DS platformer.

    The New Super Mario Bros. series has received a bit of criticism for not being as innovative as the 80's and early 90's 2D Mario's, as well as the 3D Mario's from the mid 90's to the present. If you're one of those peopl... Read Full Review
