Review Round-Up - November 2013

Super Mario 3D World equals pure,
unadulterated Mario magic.
Welcome to our (usually) monthly look at the past reviews of the last approximately thirty days. It was a month of platformers this November, and we started things off with Sonic: Lost World. While it didn't live up to the hype, it was an admirable attempt all the same. We gave the game a 7.25. Following up on that was a mascot of a much much more minuscule scale with Shin'en's Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai, which hovered into an 8.5. We joined Pac-Man again after an extended hiatus, and wound up enjoying his Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures much more than we did Pac-Man World 2. Pac is indeed back, and we gave him a 7.5 as a welcome back gift. We then moved onto Big John Games' Ohno Odyssey, a unique and charming physics-based puzzle game (7.0). Next, we have one of the only games this month that wasn't a platformer, and it just so happens to be our game of the month. Not only that, but The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds garnered one of this site's few 10/10's. After the iconic Link's score, we focused our attention on Mario's latest, Super Mario 3D World. We were wowed by the game, giving it a 9.75. An extremely good month for SuperPhillip Central November was.

Sonic: Lost World (Wii U) - 7.25
Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai (3DSWare) - 8.5
Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures (Wii U, PS3, 360, PC) - 7.5
Ohno Odyssey (3DSWare) - 7.0
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (3DS) - 10
Super Mario 3D World (Wii U) - 9.75

Whether in Hyrule or in Lorule,
A Link Between Worlds was masterful.
