    A gorgeous, diverse, smart and fulfilling return of the famous gorilla.

    Donkey Kong Country Returns

    A gorgeous, diverse, smart and fulfilling return of the famous gorilla.

    The gameplay is varied, fun, fresh and clever. The controls and mechanics all work extremely well, except for the motion control used for rolling, which isn’t perfectly responsive and can lead to several missed lo... Read Full Review

    A witty, branched, pleasant and imaginative ride.

    The Stanley Parable

    A witty, branched, pleasant and imaginative ride.

    The game’s choice system is great and truly fresh, but the rest of gameplay supporting it is overly simplistic. The level designs are constantly intriguing and the narrator’s witty comments are enough to make... Read Full Review

    Bastion is a fun, beautiful and soulful experience that’s more than just the sum of its individual parts.

    Bastion

    Bastion is a fun, beautiful and soulful experience that’s more than just the sum of its individual parts.

    The gameplay is fresh enough, has a good amount of depth and is very adaptable to most of the different player’s skills and play styles there are. At the beginning it’s a relatively easy game, but as you prog... Read Full Review

    A big, great looking, frequently entertaining but seldom awe-inspiring adventure.

    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

    A big, great looking, frequently entertaining but seldom awe-inspiring adventure.

    The gameplay has a few welcome changes, such as a more intuitive way to switch between different items and other equipment, but some of the core mechanics feel dated and a bit clunky, specifically the awkward auto-jump f... Read Full Review

    Kirby's Epic Yarn

    Constantly beautiful, charming and entertaining, though not seriously challenging.

    First of all, the visuals of this game are top-notch. The combination of colors, yarn effects, animations and textures makes this game a pleasure to play just by taking in all the beauty and charm contained in each level... Read Full Review

    A mostly balanced and fresh, but often frustrating, ever-changing hybrid of action and puzzle platforming.

    Spelunky

    A mostly balanced and fresh, but often frustrating, ever-changing hybrid of action and puzzle platforming.

    First of all, I should mention that I played this game with a keyboard, which is probably an experience a little more frustrating than playing with a gamepad. But the game isn’t compatible with the one I have and I... Read Full Review

    Gone Home

    Fantastic atmosphere, impressive details, seamless gameplay and great storytelling. Over-priced.

    The controls are sharp enough and the gameplay never breaks your connection with the story, although it lacks in variety and challenge. The game progresses at a steady pace and it's fun just to find and explore every roo... Read Full Review

    Super Mario Galaxy 2

    Galaxy 2 is the most fun, inventive, varied, beautiful and absorbing action platformer of all time.

    Super Mario Galaxy 2 is surprisingly even more polished and better designed than its superb predecessor. This was clearly a work of love done by people that really comprehend what makes action platformers, and Mario game... Read Full Review
