Review Round-Up - June 2015

SuperPhillip Central made a mess with Splatoon
last month. Don't worry-- it was encouraged!
This June, SuperPhillip Central celebrated its seven-year anniversary. The festivities conclude this Friday with the final ten of the top 50 game soundtracks of all time. That said, the month was busy for reviews as well!

I started the month with a review of the Wii U's innovative third-person shooter Splatoon, which painted and slopped its way to a B. Next up was a game that came out of nowhere to amaze me, Adventures of Pip, earning an A-. I then went retro with a review of Mega Man 7 (B) and a review of a game that is new but had a retro art style, Life of Pixel (C). Following those games were LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, reviewed on the day that Batman: Arkham Knight released, and Bean's review of Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition. Both games earned a B-. Finally, I took the site to the frozen tundras of Alaska with the artistic wonder of Never Alone for the Wii U eShop. Can you really assign a letter grade to art? Well, I assigned the actual game portion with a C.

Next month ought to be very interesting with SuperPhillip Central's 600th review. It's for a game that is a classic and one that I absolutely love, even after playing it recently. It seems to still hold up rather well.

Splatoon (Wii U) - B
Adventures of Pip (Wii U eShop) - A-
Mega Man 7 (SNES, Wii U VC) - B
Life of Pixel (Wii U VC) - C
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (3DS, Vita) - B-
Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition (3DS) - B-
Never Alone (Wii U eShop) - C

Splatoon is still regularly updated with brand-new
modes and weapons to keep the game feeling fresh.
