Mario Kart 8 review: Hover conversion

The Mario Kart series' frantic, anything-can-happen style of racing has always been an interesting alternative to complex, serious driving simulators. Its accessible aesthetics and mechanics make first-time players feel welcome, but what's under the hood can fuel rivalries with pinpoint drifting...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 review: Who am I?

The latest Spider-Man game is a cry for help. Yes, there's breezy swinging through New York corridors on a silky strand, and the Cirque du Soleil-style beatdowns that make Spidey so fun to watch, but don't let the swagger fool you. For reasons that go unexplained by the plot, The Amazing...

Child of Light review: Roses are red, violets are blue, this game is okay

It took me several hours to realize what was troubling me about Child of Light. It's a stunning game, with lovely music, endearing characters and complex combat mechanics - in short, a laundry list of RPG aspects that I adore. And yet something was off. I flew, I slew, searched the landscape...

NES Remix review: Please rewind

The content of NES Remix feels like the sort of challenges players make up for themselves when they've cleared a game's traditional obstacles but still want to keep playing. This Wii U eShop game's focus isn't on telling a story or layering game mechanics over a linear set of levels – it's...

Super Mario 3D World review: Just Peachy

Super Mario 3D World is excellent. If you have access to a Wii U, you absolutely have to play it. If you don't have access to a Wii U, you should consider either picking one up or making some new friends. The game is utterly delightful from top to bottom. That's all you need to know, honestly,...
