Review Round-Up - February

Look at those eyes...
How could you not give this game GotM?

February 27th was my 26th birthday. As a gift to myself I actually managed to tie the amount of reviews of January with nine new reviews! You cannot see this right now, but I am patting myself on the back. Anyway... we started with a retro review of Mario Party 7 for the GameCube. That title couldn't quite reignite my passion for the series and earned a 6.0 for its troubles. We took it outside with Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition on 3DS and it fought its way to an 8.5. I then showed off an ooooold review of mine with Dragon Blade: Wrath of Fire. The fires were poor embers which gave the game a bad 4.0. Square Enix then tried, tried again with Final Fantasy XIII-2 which netted a great 8.5. Sticking with the time travel theme, I scored Sonic CD an 8.0. The soul still burned with SoulCalibur V which received a respectable 7.0. After that we took the skies with Ace Combat's first foray on the 3DS. It ranked high with an 8.0. Then the beat went on with Rhythm Heaven Fever on Wii which danced to a 6.5. Finally, we ended strong with Resident Evil: Revelations (9.0), the game of the month. Overall, a traffic-heavy, quality month for SuperPhillip Central. To make fun of Jack Tretton of Sony, "we have hit our stride" and are making great "momentum."

Mario Party 7 (GCN) - 6.0
Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition (3DS) - 8.5
Dragon Blade: Wrath of Fire (Wii) - 4.0
Final Fantasy XIII-2 (PS3, 360) - 8.5
Sonic CD (PSN, XBLA) - 8.0
SoulCalibur V (PS3, 360) - 7.0
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy (3DS) - 8.0
Rhythm Heaven Fever (Wii) - 6.5
Resident Evil: Revelations (3DS) - 9.0

A tale of blades, moogles, chocobos,
time travel, and bad fashion choices.

You've had a busy month with the reviews!

And to think - this is the slow period for the games industry. I think 2012 is going to be crazy with must-have games.

Yeah, I kept myself busy. I don't hold a candle to DigitallyDownloaded, though! :)
