BADLAND_GOTY

In case you missed Badland the first time around, the game originally released on iOS and Android two years ago and was highly praised. It won countless awards on the mobile platform and featured an amazing art direction with outstanding gameplay to boot.

Tiny Galaxy Wii U Review

gameplay_1

Tiny Galaxy is an entertaining little Wii U eShop title that players may want to check out. It’s a challenging game with an adorable sound track and interesting visuals. Tiny Galaxy isn’t your average platformer and is an interesting take on the genre. Rather than traversing levels from left-to-right found in a typical platformer, players are tasked with performing vertical jumps from planet to planet while collecting the stars located on each one. While it’s not a perfect game by any means, if you have a few extra bucks laying in your eshop account, you may want to give this one a try.

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal Review

Sonic_Boom_-_Characters

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal came out for the Nintendo 3DS and the remake has its issues. It’s not a typical Sonic title that we’ve come to expect with blazing speeds and crazy flips and runs but rather a more of an exploration adventure than a speedy racer. The blue blur has changed from his running shoes and has put on his platforming and puzzle solving scarf and we walked away with mixed emotions.

How did Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal fair?

The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD Review

It took me a while to actually crack open my copy of The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD but now that I did, I can’t imagine why I waited until now to get my hands on it. Yes my friends, The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD released on the Wii U in October 2013 but until recently it sat on my desk in its beautiful, limited edition package.

I thought I already knew what to expect having beat this outstanding game on the GameCube years ago but boy was I mistaken. Not only does the gameplay stand up incredibly well in this timeless title but the all new HD graphics literally pop off the screen and showcase one of the best looking titles in this next generation. You can flip through a number of HD pics of the game but until you see it up and running yourself, the pictures will not do the game justice.

So how does The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD fair? Take a seat and read on for our official review.

iOS: Rayman Jungle Run Review

The wizards over at Ubisoft have done it again and have crafted one of iOS’ best titles to date in Rayman Jungle Run.

eShop Review: Crazy Chicken: Pirates 3D Review

Crazy Chicken: Pirates 3D has recently hit the eShop and Myvideogamenews is here to give you the full review. For only $1.99, players will be able to shoot and loot their way to treasures beyond measure, but only have a minute and a half to do it.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Review

The last time a Ghost Recon title saw the light of day on a home console was in 2007 in Advanced Warfighter 2. The year is 2012 and much has changed over the last 5 years for the genre. Call of Duty has become the juggernaut of the shooter genre and has gone on to sell millions upon millions of copies worldwide. While the inevitable comparison will arise, it should be noted that these two titles are similar in theme but offer two different playing experiences. Stealth is your friend in this stunning title and gives players a sense of feeling like a total bad ass.

Does the latest entry in the historic Ghost Recon franchise stand out or does it end up being just another shooter to play until November? Read on and find out.
