Review Round-Up - May 2018

The Kongs returned for a familiar Kong-frontation with the Snowmads on the Nintendo Switch with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, SuperPhillip Central's featured Game of the Month.
The last full month of spring here in North America saw six reviews posted on SuperPhillip Central. It was a month of familiarity and definitive editions for reviews, starting with Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition on the Nintendo Switch, which went out on a limb (or lack thereof) and scored a great A- grade. From the bright and colorful world of Rayman, we went a touch darker (okay, a LOT darker) with tinyBuild's Garage, which didn't exactly delight with its D+ score. Then, we took a trip back in time with a retro franchise seeing a brand-new installment as Lode Runner Legacy wowed with a B.

Following closely along was Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, another Wii U game turned Nintendo Switch port, getting the banana slamma' and earning an A for its adventure and SPC's Game of the Month title. The Titans then attacked its way to a C+ with the multiplatform hack and slash fun of Attack on Titan 2. Last but not least, another Koei Tecmo venture in Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition got its definitive score, an A-.

As a parting gesture, don't forget to check out the SPC Review Archive for every review ever posted on SuperPhillip Central in its nearly ten years online!
