Review Round-Up - January

A slap happy adventure awaits you in
Rayman Origins, SPC's new Game of January.

The first month of the year is kaput, and we had a grand total of nine new reviews to celebrate. We started off with three retro reviews of Game Boy Advance/3DS Ambassador games with The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (9.5), Mario Kart: Super Circuit (8.5), and Kirby & the Amazing Mirror (8.0). We then drove into Steelport with Saints Row: The Third which earned not only street cred, but also a terrific 9.0. However, it couldn't beat out the platforming bonanza that was Rayman Origins that leaped into a 9.25. Then we hit the slopes with 1080: Avalanche (7.5), rolled the die with Mario and company with Mario Party 6 (8.0), played with puppies and kittens in Nintendogs + Cats that got talked down to the lowest score of the month (5.25), and finally painted the town with Disney Epic Mickey which received an admirable 7.5. February is set to be exciting, too, with reviews of Resident Evil: Revelations and possibly Final Fantasy XII-2! And that's just the tip of our iceberg here at SuperPhillip Central!

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (GBA) - 9.5
Mario Kart: Super Circuit (GBA) - 8.5
Kirby & the Amazing Mirror (GBA) - 8.0
Saints Row: The Third (PS3, 360) - 9.0
Rayman Origins (PS3, 360, Wii) - 9.25
1080: Avalanche (GCN) - 7.5
Mario Party 6 (GCN) - 8.0
Nintendogs + Cats (3DS) - 5.25
Disney Epic Mickey (Wii) - 7.5

The Saints went marching in, explosions, guns, sex toys, and all.
