Review Round-Up - April 2015

Seems fitting that after the day Yooka-Layle was officially
revealed, that the game it is the spiritual successor of is
SuperPhillip Central's Game of the Month for April 2015!
For April, SuperPhillip Central celebrated the 3D platformer with a month mostly of reviews featuring the genre. That said, I started off the month with anticipation for the new Star Wars Battlefront game from DICE and EA by reviewing the original Star Wars Battlefront. It earned a B. Then, I kicked off the month of 3D platformers with a C judgment for Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars, a severely overlooked Wii game. Dabbling outside of the featured genre of the month again, I reviewed EastAsiaSoft's Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype, which soared its way to a B+. 

Next up, I tackled one of the most revolutionary games ever, Super Mario 64, giving it a well deserved A. Although that game wrote the book on 3D platforming, Banjo-Kazooie, the next game I reviewed, made the genre even better, giving the game SuperPhillip Central's highest score available, an A+. 

After those two great games, I found myself hesitantly giving one of my favorite games a C- with Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando HD's Vita version. Finally, Word Search by POWGI searched and found a B score, and Donkey Kong 64 wrapped up this month of 3D platforming with another B. A great month of reviews for sure, and I have in store another themed month. In fact, it's the second annual month of 3DS reviews!

To be fair to Mario and Bowser, barbecue season IS coming soon!
Meanwhile, Super Mario 64 hasn't lost much "wow" factor since 1996!
