Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Review (Wii U)

by Jason Fanelli November 30, 2015 @ 11:01 AM
If Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash were a book, it would have the cover of an epic novel and the pages of a children’s book. What was billed as a fun and engaging Mario sports game is lacking in both, and instead presents a shallow game that takes all of twenty minutes to fully experience. In a year where Nintendo seemed to make massive strides, delivering a major new IP and finally showing some understanding of how DLC can make games better, Mario Tennis Ultra Smash serves as an unwanted reminder of how Nintendo used to work.

Zombie. Ninja. Cyborg. When coming up with the concept for Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, it seems like the development team over at Tecmo Koei were just reaching for whatever pop culture trends they could find and merged them together to create their new hack and slash. This spin-off of the unforgiving, but rewarding, Ninja Gaiden series features a new hero, new look, and drastically different gameplay, but it forgot to include the one thing the previous Ninja Gaiden games had: fun.

Tanglers Blitz is a free-to-play app that is filled with colorful aliens that need to be collected by the touch of your fingers. It's a supremely easy game to master, and within seconds you'll understand the game's entire universe. Predictability can work its magic with certain titles, and with Tanglers Blitz a little bit can really go a long way.

Dead Rising 3: Fallen Angel Review (Xbox One)

by Luke Brown February 12, 2014 @ 1:34 PM
The second of four planned add-ons for Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3, Fallen Angel takes us on a journey with Angel, a member of the resistance struggling to fend of the military and zombies. While her story is quite different from previous DLC protagonist Adam Kane's, it's still just more of the same.
