G.G. Series Conveyor Toy Packing - review

This is part of a NintendoLife review...

If one can look past its missteps, G.G Series CONVEYOR TOY PACKING is an addictive, though somewhat barebones puzzler. While there are certainly better alternatives out there on the eShop, it's better than the G.G series' other block puzzler, G.G Series HERO PUZZLE, though not by much. The unique, fun gameplay ultimately saves this one from being entirely un-enjoyable, and anybody looking for a puzzler on the go at this price point should give it some consideration.

Roving Rogue - review

This is part of a NWR review for Roving Rogue...

There is potential in Roving Rogue with its unique narrative presentation and teleporting platforming ideas, but it’s squandered by a middling execution. With a glut of superior platformers out there, this is a Wii U eShop game worth passing over.

Garfield Kart - review

This is part of a NintendoLife review for Garfield Kart...

This game is Garfield in likeness only; remove Garfield and you're left with a bland, horribly un-balanced Kart game (that's either way too easy or frustratingly hard) with no multiplayer options. Sounds good? No, of course it doesn't. Looking for a Mario Kart style game for your Nintendo 3DS? Just buy Mario Kart.

The Great Ace Attorney - full Famitsu review info

Reviewer 1 – 9

The human drama, in which characters with too strong personalities overact, is as unique as ever. The game has a new setting and it broadens gameplay with “joint reasoning” and “jury member battle” while maintaining the charm of the series. The form of a new Ace Attorney is established perfectly. Ever-changing situations and attractive twists start from the first chapter. The above-mentioned new elements and showering questions at unexpected characters like Holmes are wonderful and put the player into a dream-like state.

Reviewer 2 – 9

Trials that go back and forth pull you into the game and escaping from a corner by exposing contradictions is dramatic and thrilling. It’s fun to watch conversations in which characters exchange arguments. There are unique twists, but the conversations feel a bit long-winded. It’s nice that the game feels fresh thanks to the setting and new elements, like the joint reasoning system, in which you reason with Holmes and deduce your way to truth, or the jury members of the English law system and striking down their claims.

Reviewer 3 – 9

The new element of reasoning together with Holmes feels like a comedy duo and it fits the sense of humor of the series perfectly. Another new element, “jury member battle”, doesn’t feel that different from questioning, but jury members may launch votes of guiltiness during a trial and it’s thrilling that a verdict may be given in the middle of a trial. The story is carefully written and it’s fun to detect suspicious points at a crime scene or in the courtroom.

Reviewer 4 – 8

The progressing of the story, which has many hopeless situations and many comebacks, feels irritating at times. On the other hand, you want to know how the story continues and you can’t put the game down. Character traits and animations that show characters’ mental state are more pretentious than in the past games. Especially cornering the culprit is thrilling! The tempo of looking for evidence in investigation parts is also good.

G.G. Assault Buster - review

This is part of a G.G. Series Assault Buster review...

G.G Series ASSAULT BUSTER could be argued as being the finest entry in this arcade focused series yet. The nature of the gameplay lends itself well to score chasing and the dynamic combat, upbeat soundtrack and excellent spritework all mix well into a satisfying whole. If you're going to pick up only one of the dozens of G.G games out yet, we'd recommend that this is the one you buy.

AVGN Adventures - 3DS review

This is part of a AVGN Adventures 3DS review from NintendoLife...

Both versions of AVGN Adventures are solidly constructed titles that fans of the brand and challenging platformers will likely love, but those small, loving touches on the 3DS version feel all that more attuned with the spirit of retro and the brand of the Nerd, giving it an edge if those things matter to you. Perhaps there's some nostalgic bias at play here, and those who prize sharper graphics and bigger screens aren't in the wrong at all. If you want to be taken back to the past as much as possible, though, this one delivers more.

Shiftlings - review

This is from a Shiftlings review, published over on Nintendo World Report...

Shiftlings is a solid yet unspectacular first effort from a rookie developer, though I do hope it's not the last we see from Sierra. If you can put aside the obsession with finding everything in a level, there's a pretty fun game here – just be ready to fiddle with the sound options.
