Mix two servings of Chunsoft's Mystery Dungeon series with a heaping helping of Atlus' Etrian Odyssey series and you get Etrian Mystery Dungeon, a dungeon crawler offering deep dungeons and shallow gameplay.
Nintendo 3DS Game Reviews
I wasn't sure if the transition would succeed, but this port is just as impressive and fun as the original Wii release, so anyone who decides to first experience Xenoblade here won't miss a beat.
Story of Seasons, for all intents and purposes, is Harvest Moon without the title, and continues the series’ tradition of making the mundane into compelling gameplay.
As far as puzzle platformers are concerned, Boxboy is a breath of fresh air and proves that no matter the size or style of game, HAL is always committed to delivering a unique and fun experience with their games.
The team behind Fire Emblem has gone to some odd places in devising their brand new game, but they've also added some cool mechanics and a story straight out of Saturday morning cartoons to make the oddities fit right in. The game doesn't always flow perfectly, but Codename S.T.E.A.M is certainly a fun little strategy title.
Despite not doing anything particularly new, Tipping Stars still a great puzzle game that does a nice job straddling the line between fun and frustrating.
Whether its praises are being sung or its being condemned as too odd of a departure from the series roots, anyone who has an opinion about The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is passionate about it. Divisive as it may be, Majora’s Mask is an important game in the Zelda series; not for its technical innovations, but for its storytelling and gameplay achievements. Majora’s Mask changed the way Zelda games told a story, and how the player progressed through it.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate finally hooked me into the entire Monster Hunter series. I now understand why this franchise has so many die-hard fans, and I get why hundreds of hours are spent roaming the hills and deserts looking for new prey.

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal isn’t the game that is going to save the franchise by any means, but this isn’t another Sonic ‘06.
