PN Review: The Letter

July 16, 2014 | 2

For those who see the score and are inclined to stop reading, please don’t.  Scores don’t tell the whole story.  Yes, The Letter (at present) is below average, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not worth buying.  I actually liked more of … Read More

PN Review: Bike Rider DX2 Galaxy

July 14, 2014 |

The initial Bike Rider was a favorite 3DS eShop game of mine last year, and its sequels positioned to fare comparably.  With most of the original action preserved plus many new features, Bike Rider DX2 Galaxy is a decidedly worthy follow up that … Read More

PN Review: Internal Invasion

PN Review: Fit Music

July 1, 2014 |

Part exercise program, part dance game, Fit Music tries being many things to many people.  While it has a few commendable ideas, its execution leaves something to be desired.  It might have been better off as an instructional video instead of … Read More

June 19, 2014 |

AiRace Speed was a favorite of mine last year, and now the series has returned to 3DS.  AiRace Xeno is a standalone release of what was downloadable content on the mobile market, being shorter with reused assets.  The good news … Read More
