PN Review: Bayonetta 2

October 13, 2014 | 6

Everything you know about the previous Bayonetta has returned in full form, but with new additions that makes the experience even better.

The plot of Bayonetta 2 has much more presence than in the previous title, and it doesn’t take … Read More

PN Review: Turtle Tale (Wii U eShop)

October 12, 2014 |

If you’re a fan of retro inspired 2D platformers you’ll definitely want to give Turtle Tale a look.  In fact you might have done so already – the game debuted on 3DS just a few months ago.  It was a … Read More

PN Review: 99Seconds

October 9, 2014 |

First with Abyss and followed with Darts Up, EnjoyUp Games seems to be in the process of porting several of their popular handheld titles to Wii U.  If they’re good games like 99Seconds though, there’s reason for excitement.  The 99 … Read More

PNM Gear Review: Sumo Omni Reloaded

September 30, 2014 |

I wasn’t overly familiar with Sumo Lounge products prior to taking on this review.  Most of what I knew came from my fellow Pure Nintendo coworkers Tristan Meiman and Alex Schramke, both of whom reviewed Sumo bean bag chairs in … Read More

PN Review: Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade

September 30, 2014 |

Angry Bunnies is very much an Angry Birds clone, something I perhaps dwelled too much on when reviewing the 3DS version.  Fresh off Flappy Bird “spin-off” Spikey Walls however, I feel I can be more tolerant of clone games so … Read More

PN Review: Arrow Time U

September 29, 2014 |

Arrow Time U joins a small handful of recent Wii U games that have released in spite of unsuccessful crowd funding.  I give XenoHorizon kudos for seeing the game through to completion.  I further appreciate that the Wii U is … Read More

PN Review: Super Smash Bros. (3DS)

September 26, 2014 |

Whenever Nintendo reveals a new console, there are a few things that come to mind. Things such as: “I NEED IT!”, “IT’S HOW MUCH?!” and the wonder of “What amazing titles will be on here for my gaming pleasure?”. I’ll … Read More

PN Review: Darts Up

September 24, 2014 |

It may have lost the 3D, but Darts Up brings a couple new tricks along with its move to the home console realm.  Does EnjoyUp’s budget game still have what it takes more than a year after its initial release?  … Read More

PN Review: Secret Empires of the Ancient World

September 23, 2014 |

Search for secrets among the ruins of great ancient civilizations!

Like City Mysteries, this is a globetrotting hidden object game from Selectsoft.  And as was the case with its predecessor, I feel the theme could be better represented.  It held … Read More

PN Review: The Keep (3DS Eshop)

September 23, 2014 | 1

Games that are referred to as “Dungeon Crawlers” are never really a preference of mine, I don’t like being limited when exploring or engaging in battle. But any game can be a good game as long as its … Read More

PN Review: Gothic Masquerade

September 21, 2014 |

 “Visit Gothic Masquerade and find all its mysteries!”

With locales like “Cryptic Castle” and “Mystery Museum”, I expected to see Scooby and the gang wandering in the background.  Instead we have the same scattered items used in the other hidden … Read More

PN Review: Zen Pinball 2 – Marvel & The Walking Dead DLC

September 21, 2014 |

Since Zen Pinball 2 is the only pinball game on the Wii U currently, it is easy to say that it is the best pinball game on Wii U.  Zen Studios has done a great job at providing a quality … Read More

PN Review: SPIKEY WALLS

September 19, 2014 |

SPIKEY WALLS has already invited a lot of criticism on itself as an unapologetic clone of the infamous game Flappy Bird.  The side scrolling, arcade style, endless flyer was a flash in the pan on mobile nearly a year ago.  … Read More

PN Video Review Hyrule Warriors

September 17, 2014 | 1

Hyrule Warriors improves on the Warriors franchise by leaps and bounds First and foremost: The game isn’t just about you slaying thousands of monsters, but how you slay these thousands of monsters, as well as what else you can … Read More

PN Review: Hideaways: Foggy Valley

September 17, 2014 |

Hideaways: Foggy Valley is very similar to City Mysteries, Selectsofts’ prior hidden object game that I reviewed a couple of months back.  In fact, if you put the games side by side you might be hard pressed to tell them … Read More

PN Review: Teslagrad (Wii U eShop)

September 16, 2014 |

Teslagrad is a 2D side-scrolling game that presents you with a challenging puzzle one minute and fast-paced action the next. You will find yourself jumping and “blinking” through obstacles, discovering secrets while exploring the beautiful hand-drawn world and then try … Read More

PN Review: Ice Cream Surfer

September 14, 2014 |

“Welcome to Ice Cream Surfer.  Are you ready to free the universe from the Evil Vegetables?”

Ice Cream Surfer is worth at least one point on name alone!  This humorous shooter has a nonsensical plot about evil broccoli wanting to … Read More
