Review Round-Up - May

While not Mario and friends' best tennis effort,
Mario Tennis Open gave me plenty of arcade tennis action.
May 2012 is over and done with, and at SuperPhillip Central we reviewed eight different games both retail and digital. We started the month with three games that all scored 8.5, without a doubt my most popular score I give to games. They were Ys: The Oath in Felghana, Mario Power Tennis (to hype up the 3DS installment), and Wario Land 4. We continued the Game Boy Advance fun with Metroid Fusion which hunted down a spectacular 9.25. The lowest score of the month was earned by the Wii's Just Dance 3. Not even that game could boogey on over to a good score. Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom cohorts served up an 8.0 while Kirby's Block Ball bounced its way to a respectable 7.75. Finally, my brother sat in the review chair and gave Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II a positive 7.0. We are now entering the dry months of summer, so the amount of reviews may go down.

All scores are out of 10.
5 = Average
* = Guest Review

Ys: The Oath in Felghana (PSP) - 8.5
Mario Power Tennis (GCN) - 8.5
Wario Land 4 (GBA) - 8.5
Metroid Fusion (GBA) - 9.25
Just Dance 3 (Wii) - 3.5
Mario Tennis Open (3DS) - 8.0
Kirby's Block Ball (GB) - 7.75
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II (PSN, XBLA) - 7.0*

Better than Episode I, but things could still be improved.
