    New Super Mario Bros. 2

    New Super Mario Bros comes to 3DS with golden power-ups and an obsession on coin collecting.

    Hmm where to start. Im pretty sure everyone knows how Mario games work these days and NSMB2 is no exception. The remade side scroller series gets a sequel on 3DS. What is new? Nothing. Except for an obsession with coin c... Read Full Review

    Digimon World Re:Digitize

    Hailing back to the original Digimon World, Re: Digitize combines an RPG/Adventure game with monster-raising elements.

    Gameplay 8- Playing Re: Digitize is pretty straight forward. Unlike the first game you more or less progress in the story by visiting the various areas in sequence. As if you try to go out of order there will either be d... Read Full Review

    Magic 2013 builds on the previous two games with more decks and more opponents, but it is more of the same.

    Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013

    Magic 2013 builds on the previous two games with more decks and more opponents, but it is more of the same.

    Gameplay 8- Im going to assume that people interested in Magic 2013 either know how to play the card game or have done the tutorials to learn. M13 follows the standard rules of the game and pits you against AI opponents ... Read Full Review

    Twisted Metal arrives on the PS3, and... well I would play online, if it worked.

    Gameplay C Twisted Metal features car combat, destructible terrain, and many bugs which detract from the fun. There are three stories to play through which will pit you in various car arenas, races, and against bosses... Read Full Review

    Mario takes the leap to 3D with screen depth, yet this is still the same game with added tweaks.

    Mario Kart 7

    Mario Kart returns in another great sequel, but other than new tracks and characters its virutally the same game.

    Gameplay 8- Im pretty sure there is little need to go into how to play Mario Kart, as it is one of Ninty's best-selling franchises. This time around you cruise laps with a higher level of kart customization. Rather than ... Read Full Review

    Invizimals: Shadow Zone

    Shadow Zone brings more invizimals into the fray, but it still suffers the same technical problems as its predecessor.

    Anyone who played the first game will feel instantly at home as it plays exactly the same. It has a new, follow-up story that is slightly more interesting but you are still doing the same thing repeatedly: capture monste... Read Full Review

    Follow the tale of Red as he gets involved in more than he bargained for, and ends up having to save the world.

    Gameplay 9- Im pretty sure you have heard this before: hero X goes on a quest to stop Y from unleashing Z on the world. Though this is where the standard RPG story cliches end. The story of Solatorobo is actually one of ... Read Full Review

    Fox and team return in this 3D remake of the N64 original.

    "Do a barrel roll!" is perhaps one of the more memorable phrases in gaming. Most older gamers will recognize this as Peppy's catchphrase from the Star Fox games. SF 64 is pretty much just a port of the original, with som... Read Full Review

    Fantastic Pets

    Fantastic Pets is a decent pet sim game like Kinectimals with a lot more pet customization, but less content.

    Okami arrives on the DS. This time you play as Ammy's son to save the world.
