IGN Video - Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled review

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled's difficulty, memorable track design, and addictive power-slide mechanic make it a kart racer worth playing but it's not without its frustrations.

IGN Video Review - My Friend Pedro

Excellent action leads the way with My Friend Pedro, though there is little reason to return after its short campaign.

BOXBOY! + BOXGIRL! - Full Famitsu review details

What did the reviewers think?

We featured Famitsu's review score for BOXBOY! + BOXGIRL! awhile back, but now we have full details on what each reviewer said. Check out the complete summary below.

1st reviewer: I’m surprised at so many ways to pull out puzzle solutions using boxes such as Throwing, Pulling, Jumping and more. Even the same stage has a wide variety of solving methods, and two-player co-op get hyped with playing while speaking with each other. The threshold is low if you just want to clear, but if you want to aim for minimum moves it becomes stoic. With 270 types of stages, a part where you play with rectangular boxes, Balloon Challenge and more, this has a full volume which is also good on the cost performance. 8

2nd reviewer: It’s fun as usual on discovering methods to solve puzzles and with the minimum moves. On top of the appearance of new Box Techniques, they’ve also prepared a mode where you can play co-op, thus adding new techniques that are possible by moving two characters, giving more depth into the puzzles. Other than being able to see hints at each places, you can also enhance movements and number of boxes that can be generated with aid items, so it has a proper follow-up. There is also a post-clear mode, so I’m glad with the volumey content. 8

3rd reviewer: It is economical to have this much volume with this price. Skills and gimmicks are added incrementally, inheriting the series’ strong points such as continuing to challenge without getting bored and multiple correct methods. The co-op mode can even be enjoyed alone; each of them can become replacement boxes, or both of them have to reach the goal; I was able to play the same stage with a fresh feeling. Items get added so it becomes harder to get stuck which makes me feel at ease. 8

4th reviewer: The fun of challenges in clearing stages with minimum steps by making use of fortuities such as slight mis-positionings while calculating thoroughly is still unchanged from past titles, and this is also filled with features for fans such as collection and storyline. It’s also a good thing that they’ve prepared aid items with cheat-like abilities for people who are poor with puzzles. The co-op mode does feel economical as it can be enjoyed by either having one person lead or two people consulting each other. 7
