The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

We expected a voyage down memory lane, but were instead treated to an adventure that is as fresh as it was when it first appeared in 2002. Spendid stuff.

Harvest Moon: A New Beginning

The seeds of discontent yield one of the fullest Harvest Moon crops in recent years. Be sure to stick with it through the slow bits: you'll thank us for it.

Inazuma Eleven 3

IE3's mantra seems to be 'more is less'. Less: work for devs, learning for fans and interest for the uninitiated. It works, but is it really what an exciting series needs?

Pokemon Rumble U

A slight, but serviceable spin-off that has bags of energy, if little else. It's hardly a Skylanders-beater, but offers pleasing, brain-off fun in small doses.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams

A dreamy platformer occasionally punctured by difficulty spikes and with a short-run through time that makes it a poor purchase for those seeking value.

Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan

Mixes trademarks difficulty and accessibility with surprsing finesse. Not just a brilliant entry in the series, but a benchmark for other games of its type.

Disney Infinity

Despite its potential, the Starter Pack feels a little limited. That said, four solid games is not to be sniffed at abd we imagine there's far more to come.

Disney Infinity: Cars Play Set

Infinity at its most serviceable, which is fine. We're just hoping that Parent Trap divorce sim comes along soon.

Disney Infinity: Lone Ranger Play Set

Among the best of the Play Sets released so far, but we're not going to suggest that's a staggering achievement.

SMT Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

This is a genuinely interesting historical document, but Atlus' modern games are slicker. Wait for Shin Megami Tensei 4.

Street Fighter II

The best fighting game in the world until Street Fighter II Championship Edition, which never came to SNES.

Street Fighter II Turbo

Faster and more balanced than Street Fighter II, go for this one if you like your fighting turbo-charged.

Super Street Fighter II

Two decades later there are better ways to play SFII, but none quite as special as this generation-defining moment.
