Review Round-Up - April

As Vanilla Ice once sang, "No, ninja, no, ninja, no!"
The month of April showered SuperPhillip Central with a total of six reviews and/or review segments. However, as you can see by the numbers, it was a month of low-scoring games. We started off with the immensely disappointing bloodbath that was Ninja Gaiden 3. The game turned away from its difficult but rewarding gameplay, and received a 4.0 for it. We rebounded with a more colorful disposition with Mario Party 5 that partied til it got a 7.5. One-Sentence Reviews returned, a popular and innovative segment, for round number three. Then we went back to disappointment with the high-selling but low-rated Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. Not even the Resident Evil name could get it anything but a 4.25. An SPC Quickies segment, the eleventh of its kind, was soon followed by the game of the month, a 3DSWare painting application known as Colors! 3D (8.75). I was a particularly harsher reviewer this month than usual. That or the games that I played were just not up to task.

Ninja Gaiden 3 (PS3, 360) - 4.0
Mario Party 5 (GCN) - 7.5
One-Sentence Reviews - Volume Three
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (PS3, 360) - 4.25
SPC Quickies - Volume Eleven - 3D Classics Edition
Colors! 3D (3DSWare) - 8.75

A horde of zombies, some high firepower, 
what could possibly go wrong?
