Pitfalls aside, Shin Megami Tensei devotees should find plenty to love about Soul Hackers, from its menagerie of demons and decadent weirdness to its classic RPG goodness.
Deponia is a throwback title of the best caliber, faithful to the greats that paved a way for humor to find a place in adventure gaming and forward-thinking in ways that should attract a younger audience.
Controls feel quite slippery and imprecise, almost as though (as previously stated) the world tilts and twists instead of the racer and vehicle.
The fifth time around, a game should have had plenty of time to build and improve upon its mistakes in the past, and Magical Drop V simply doesn't cut it. Pick up another puzzler if you're looking to scratch that itch.
It's slick, fast-paced, and full of the same balls-out adrenaline rush you'd expect from any one of the beefy soldiers of Sera, but ultimately ends up feeling hollow, full of missed opportunities.
The Cave is a gorgeous and ambitious project, that's for certain. But not once does it live up to its creators' pedigreed past, and that's disappointing.
Fire Emblem: Awakening is undoubtedly one of the best strategy RPG titles to hit the 3DS, and owners looking to augment their collection further should certainly pick it up.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a seasoned addition to the AC franchise, with more social elements, entertainment, and value than before.
You'd get more enjoyment out of the meatier core games. Unfortunately, this is one instance where Compile Heart simply didn't produce perfection.
All in all this title is either for rabid fans of BlazBlue, or of visual novels. Regular gamers won't find much here to sate their appetites.
