Review Round-Up - December 2017

Ittle Dew 2+ takes the Zelda formula and creatively builds off of it,
making developer Ludosity's work SPC's Game of the Month.
Happy New Year to all SuperPhillip Central readers, whether you're a habitual reader, an occasional reader, or completely brand-new! Before we completely say goodbye to 2017, there are two things I'd like to mention. For one, the SuperPhillip Central Best of 2017 Awards begin late this year, kicking off Monday, January 22, 2018. It will last the whole work week with Friday night showcasing my absolute favorite games of 2017.

The other thing to mention is the Review Round-Up! While 2017 saw AAA publishers bringing the goods, here at SuperPhillip Central we turn to indies to round out the year. Five indie games, to be exact. The first two were a duo of racing games, one on water and the other an overhead racer. Both Riptide GP: Renegade and Mantis Burn Racing sped across the finish line to earn a B grade each. Following that was RIVE: Ultimate Edition, reaching the Nintendo Switch eShop with a B- to show for it. Finally, two games following the Legend of Zelda blueprint rounded out this month, the A Link to the Past-like Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King (B-) and the featured game of the month for December 2017, Ittle Dew 2+ (B+).

A lot of reviews are coming for this month, including holdovers from 2017! I hope you'll find a lot of content you're excited about this month as I try to bring my best foot forward for 2018!

Riptide GP: Renegade (NSW) - B
Mantis Burn Racing (NSW, PS4, XB1, PC) - B
RIVE: Ultimate Edition (NSW) - B-
Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King (NSW, PC) - B-

From the makers of Hydro Thunder: Hurricane, Vector Unit's Riptide GP: Renegade
made some serious waves this past month here on SuperPhillip Central.
