Review Round-Up - July 2014

Unsheathe thy shovel with SuperPhillip
Central's favorite game of July!
Our Christmas in July gift to our faithful SuperPhillip Central readers was twelve reviews! Maybe it was a gift to ourselves, too! In any case, this month expressed our love for indies with multiple games from independent developers for various platforms. We started off this indie-centric month with the awesome Armillo, rolling its way into a 9.0. We then took a detour to Vitaville with Uncharted: Golden Abyss (8.25) and Wipeout 2048 (9.0). We went back to Indie City with Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, a game that pile-drived its place to an outstanding 9.25. Need for Speed: Most Wanted U was next up with a 7.5 score. Our game of the month was Shovel Knight, digging up a super-impressive 9.5! Oh, it was also our 500TH REVIEW! We then bombed some bastards with Bombing Bastards for the Wii U eShop. That game got a slightly below average 4.75, making us almost wish we were bombing dodongos instead.

Sonic and friends went zero gravity with Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity (7.0), and Disney's Hercules Action Game, by far the sexiest game name ever devised, received the same score (7.0). Finally, Super Toy Cars (4.5), Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy (8.75), and Crash Team Racing (9.25) rounded out the sizzling month of July.

Stay tuned for August on SuperPhillip Central, where we'll hope to have reviews for Grand Theft Auto V, Wii Sports Club, The LEGO Movie Videogame, and some surprises here and there! We're gonna keep on keepin' on this summer!

for that matter to dish out some damage.
