Review Round-Up - September 2017

If Mario + Rabbids can turn out awesomely, what other odd combinations
could work? Final Fantasy + Mortal Kombat? ...Nah.
September not only brought autumn for a fair portion of the world, but it brought five new reviews to SuperPhillip Central. It's not the optimal number I like to hit each month (that would be six), but these were satisfying enough to play and write nonetheless.

Things kicked off with Splatoon 2, which splatted its way to a B thanks to some clever and addicting gameplay but clumsy online options. Then, a Review Redux put The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds back under focus a few years after its original release, earning an A. Meanwhile, try as the developers did, Beach Buggy Racing was not a satisfying arcade kart racer, falling off the track quite a bit with a D grade. From there, Samus Aran made her majestic comeback with Metroid: Samus Returns, plundering planet SR388 for a B+. Finally, an unpredictable combination and one that seemed unlikely to be as great as it was, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle serves as SuperPhillip Central's featured game of the month, scoring an A-!

Splatoon 2 (NS) - B
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (3DS) - A
Beach Buggy Racing (NS) - D
Metroid: Samus Returns (3DS) - B+
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle (NS) - A-

School wasn't the only thing back in session this September, so was splat season with Splatoon 2.
