GK Review: Super Mario Party

Our reviewer Joe has taken a closer look at the new Party game for your Nintendo Switch, “Super Mario Party“. More: Super Mario Party feels like a winner straight out of the gates. It gets out of its own way and presents you – and any mates you have with you at the time (don’t worry you won’t have them for long) – with your first board game in minutes and before long you’re off, gettin...[Read More]

Super Mario Party Review

It’s-a-party-time: I feel like Mario Party lost its way throughout the ten games that preceded this one. As the numbers crept up the games felt a little bloated and confused, oftentimes wasting far too much of your time as you tried to screw over your friends and ruin relationships. I’m pleased to say that Super Mario Party is a fantastic return to the series roots, where the acts of playing minig...[Read More]

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Review

The Leader of the Bunch: Donkey Kong Country Returns was a game I never thought could recapture the DK magic from the golden era of platformers. I was wrong. I didn’t make the same mistakes doubting Tropical Freeze when it debuted on the much maligned Wii U a few years back – I knew we were in for something special. I am thrilled to report that the inevitable Switch port is even more fantastic. St...[Read More]

Detective Pikachu

An action-adventure title, Detective Pikachu finds the hero of the title – a unique Pikachu in the Pokémon world – partnering with Tim Goodman and searching for evidence and clues to solve a series of cases, whilst also investigating the disappearance of Tim’s father, Harry Goodman. When he arrives in Ryme City looking for his missing father, little does Tim know he would meet a Pikachu, but mo...[Read More]

Detective Pikachu Review

Elementary my dear Goodman: After seemingly hundreds of games starring the little electric mouse we’ve all grown to love, he finally has a voice. Pikachu, the surprising star sleuth of Detective Pikachu, is a different beast to the excitable, high-pitched incarnations we’ve seen before. Here he’s a sarcastic, world-weary detective and somehow – against all the odds – it just works. Story: Tim Good...[Read More]

Kirby Star Allies Review

Kirby: “Kirby Star Allies” is a very typical Nintendo game – cute, fun and polished to the nth degree. It doesn’t do anything new but, then again, it really doesn’t need to. The Kirby formula of sucking things up and stealing their powers is as fun here as it’s ever been, and whilst it never reaches the highs of Return to Dreamland, it’s still a stellar instalment in an absolutely char...[Read More]

Mario Party: The Top 100 Review

Let’s Party: ‘Mario Party‘ became a very special property to a very select group of kids growing up. Anyone who still fondly remembers the holes they burnt into their palms playing Mario Party on the ’64 can count themselves as part of that exclusive club. I was pretty excited to see a compilation of Mario Party’s best minigames – especially when I got a code just before I headed home ...[Read More]

Super Mario Odyssey

In this massive sandbox-style game in the spirit of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, Mario uses incredible new hat-based abilities like cap throw, cap jump and capture, which define his new adventure and provide a fresh take on the classic Super Mario formula. Using Cappy, Mario can take control of a lot of things, including objects and enemies. Discovering what can be captured and experie...[Read More]

Super Mario Odyssey Review

Hats Off: You don’t have to know a thing about videogames to know exactly who Mario is and what he’s famous for. Nintendo’s iconic icon is the star of gaming’s most storied series, and yet they never seem to let the plucky plumber sit still for a moment: whilst most developers might rest on their laurels with a formula as successful as Mario’s, the Kyoto giant strives to push the series in new dir...[Read More]

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Bowser’s Minions Review

Mario & Luigi: Mario & Luigi is a real gem of a series. First started way back in 2003 on the Game Boy Advance, it’s a series that has been a personal favourite of mine for on-the-go RPG goodness. If you’ve somehow missed this game and its excellent sequels, you should rectify that mistake immediately – luckily Nintendo has you covered. Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions packages a remake o...[Read More]

Pokkén Tournament DX Review

Pokkén: Back when it first launched on Wii U, Pokkén Tournament took a little getting used to. It’s a strange 2D/3D hybrid fighting game – so it makes sense to port the title to Nintendo’s strange Handheld/Home Console hybrid in the Switch. Playing through the game again I remembered just how much fun I had with the original, and just how daringly unique it is. Gameplay: “Pokkén Tournament&#...[Read More]
