Review Round-Up - March 2014

Baby Mario, along with players like us,
dropped into the world of the Yoshis.
Now it's time for the REAL Review Round-Up for March 2014. We started off retro with the original, the classic, The Legend of Zelda. Its old school difficulty and sometimes obtuse design put Phil off a little bit, but the game still opened up a dungeon treasure chest and acquired a 7.0 score. Tappingo on the 3DS eShop, a game with a resemblance to Picross, also solved its way to the same score. Just realize that we're not saying Tappingo is as good as The Legend of Zelda. It's a fool's errand to compare games from totally different genres. We're rating these games based on competition in their own genres. 

Speaking of going retro, Nintendo gave us a nostalgic twinge with NES Remix, scoring an 8.0. Also on the Wii U eShop was F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition. Unfortunately, most kart racers speed past this disappointing (and aggravating) cartoon racer. Next up we revisited Yoshi, but this time we took a vacation at his brand-new digs with Yoshi's New Island, a game that hatched an 8.0 score. 

Three more platformers rounded out our productive month: Klonoa: Door to Phantomile (8.5), Crash Bandicoot (7.0, reviewed by Bean), and DuckTales Remastered (9.0). Overall, it was a fun month of games to review. It was a varied selection of titles, and we hope you enjoyed taking a look at them with us. April is all about the PlayStation Vita (with some other non-Vita games thrown in for good measure). Please look forward to this month of reviews!

Scrooge McDuck's back from an extended hiatus,
and his adventure was worth its weight in gold!
