The Binding of Isaac Rebirth

Dare Up Adrenaline - review

This is part of a Dare Up Adrenaline review on NintendoLife...

Dare Up Adrenaline is a less than half-baked attempt at arcade-style free-flying action, and it crashes and burns spectacularly. It feels as though very little effort was put into making this game enjoyable, let alone playable; it would be impossible for us to recommend paying more than a dollar for this game, let alone the asking price. Buyers are better off looking elsewhere for their adrenaline fixes.

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight

This is part of a Gaming Nexus review for Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight...

Etrian Odyssey games can be a bit daunting just because of how many are out there these days. Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight serves as a good place to start with its accessibility and less steep learning curve. It's a great game for JRPG fans, and is a welcome addition to the franchise, even if it is getting a little crowded now.

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer - Famitsu review details

Reviewer 1 – 9

Although this is a spin-off game, a great deal of content from the Animal Crossing series, like characters and furniture, is used smoothly and you get into a trance while creating elaborate rooms. It’s also nice that you can coordinate things like schools and hotels in addition to homes. It is comfortable to arrange furniture with the touch pen. You get new things such as furniture and wallpapers from the villager requests even after seeing the staff roll for the first time, so it seems like you can enjoy the game for a long time.

Reviewer 2 – 8

I’m glad that you can design exteriors of buildings and gardens in addition to indoor furniture. It’s also nice that you can coordinate interiors of schools and shops. You can also take pictures inside finished buildings while changing the owner’s roles and clothes. The evaluation after finishing a task isn’t particular, as the client’s reaction doesn’t change if you put in the required furniture, so it feels a bit desolate if you put a lot of effort to the design.

Reviewer 3 – 9

Since the game is specialized in room building, arranging furniture is greatly easier to do than in a traditional game of the series. You can upgrade items that go to institutions and shops or establish windows, doors, gardens or even environmental music, so you will unconsciously get absorbed into the game. When you’re going this far, you’d want to have a house of your own, but that unrealized dream feels real somehow. A daily report finishes the tasks of that day, and while there is also the aspect of work experience, it’s also good how you can connect with your earlier works with the report.

Reviewer 4 – 9

As this game is specialized in the home designing of the Animal Crossing series, the game isn’t as deep as the traditional series since you can’t experience the general village life. A special thing to mention is the conversations with different characters whose personalities overflow with ambiance. It’s great that thanks to these, you can enjoy the game so that it doesn’t feel repetitive. It is interesting to catch a glimpse of how a past client is living his/her life, and that also makes it worthwhile to come back to the game.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth - review

Here is a portion from a NintendoLife review...

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth has some minor issues with combat, but excellent enemy variety, in both their design and combat abilities, makes every new run a different challenge. With so many items added to the mix, each run at the dungeon becomes unique, making Rebirth feel like a new game every time you start it up. It's gross, but also funny, striking up a great balance between discomfort and fun that gives its visuals an interesting appeal. All of its various elements just click together well, creating a solid game that will be hard to put down as you struggle your way to the deepest recesses of Isaac's basement.
