Mario Kart 7 (3DS)

Nintendo‘s racing game is now on the 3DS. Mario Kart 7 is well… the seventh game in the series. Mario Kart 7 adds gliding and underwater driving. You can now customize your karts with different bodies, wheels, and gliders, to changes the stats. For online, you can form and join communities, to set-up easy races and battles with your friend.

Mario Kart 7 doesn’t add too much to the series, the gliding and underwater driving doesn’t seem like a big change because if you played Mario Kart before, I think you’ll get it down naturally. The character roster is kinda disappointing, because some characters that you think will be in the game, aren’t. There are gyro controls, much like the Wii controls, but I found them to work for most of time but I preferred the normal controls.

The game is as great as all of the other Mario Kart games. The online is same as the Wii, plus communities; it’s great. I think the customizable karts add more strategy to the game, trying to find the kart that’s just right for your favorite character.

The game is great, like all the other Mario Karts but Mario Kart 7 doesn’t add much. I do recommend you getting the game, because it’s fun and it will be a good game to add to your 3DS collection.

Super Mario: 3D Land (3DS)

Super Mario: 3D Land has fun gameplay and nice level-design. The game seems like classic Mario game with 3D level-design. Each level has 3 Star coins, that will cause you to look around the level and explore for them. You would want to go back to levels you beat and try to find all the secrets. The 3D is really nice, there effects that would make you want to turn them and some puzzles uses 3D.

There are very few problems but they are very minor. I don’t like the timer because you want to explore the level and the timer will limit in some levels. There are cannons and binoculars that will make you use the gyroscope, the gyroscope sometimes has problems going where you want to go and make you want to turn off 3D.

Super Mario: 3D Land is basically a perfect platformer and a most have for the 3DS.

Goldeneye 007 (DS)

Goldeneye 007 is a retelling of the movie and game, Goldeneye 007 for the Nintendo 64. The game has been released on both Nintendo‘s platforms, Wii and DS. The game is a first-person shooter for both platforms.

I say the DS game is pretty fun. There are three modes, story, muitlplayer, and Nintendo WFC (Online). The story was fun to play because I liked to go around stealth like and take out one enemy at a time but you can also go Rambo too. The only problems I had were, the voices being too quiet or I can’t understand it, which made the story harder to follow. I couldn’t play multiplayer because I don’t know anybody who owns the game. It would of been nice if the game had single-card play. Nintendo WFC is the best part. There is not too much lag and finding a game kinda easy. When you respawn you can choose from any weapon, the only problem with that is people will spam the rockets, but when you are the host, you can change setting to turn off explosives.

There are 2 ways of controlling the game, stylus mode and button mode. I use stylus mode because the game seems more fun to play; I just had to change the sensitivity. Button mode just seems more cluttered with the controls

This game has it’s flaws and strengths but it is good. It is better than a lot of DS games. I would recommend this to any shooter fan, who wants a DS game.

Dragon Quest IX (DS)

Dragon Quest 9 is a gr8 RPG. You can create your own character and party members but there is already 3 created party members for you. The main character starts as a minstrel and you can change your class later in the the game but you’ll be so strong that you don’t want to because when you switch your class you become level 1. There will be classes that you can unlock. The game has better muitiplayer than Animal Crossing but no online muitiplayer. One player can open up his world and invite 3 other players to come and roam around. The host can progress through the story and the visitor can level up still and the host too. The online is a shop where you can buy items and download more side quests. The story is good but the character development is not so good. The main character and the party members have no character development; the people around you have character development but many you don’t have to interact with them again. There is a bunch of replay ability with side quests and there will be a new side quest to download every week for the year to come. The fights are turn base which I like. I give it a 4 out of 5.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)

Super Mario Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a platformer for Wii. This is the sequel to Super Mario Galaxy, which is an awesome platformer. The game play is very fun and there is a lot of replayability. I think the co-op play is better in this game. I can see that they borrow some things from New Super Mario Bros. Wii, like there is a map instead a hub and the I found there is more side scrolling than the first one. The graphics are gr8 for the Wii. I feel this game is a little bit easier than the first one. I think hardcore gamers will have fun with this game and I think this is a good game for new gamer too. I give it a 5 out of 5.
