Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call

Curtain Call may reuse a lot of its back catalogue, but when the gig's this good, this is one reunion tour we can get behind. A must buy for FF music fans.

Wii Sports Club

For those after completion, or the few yet to play the originals, this is the most economical package. Just don't expect it to feel perfect throughout.

Armillo

Armillo may have its heart in the right place, but it's let down by attempting to juggle far too many ideas at the same time.

Siesta Fiesta

A new spin on an old idea, with enough creativity and charm to keep Breakout fans amused. Peddlers of cynical arcade clones: hang your heads in shame.

Master Reboot

Worth a play if your heart can take the constant stress, and worth exploring if you've got the time. Just don't expect decent closure.

Pokemon Trading Card Game

This Pokemon spin off is more 'attack failed' than 'critical hit'. It's an accomplished game in some areas, but for the most part, it falls a little flat.

Mutant Mudds Deluxe

It's always offered ultra-pure 2D platform/shooting, but the new DLC irons out the imperfections and changes it from 'good' to 'near essential'.

Quell Reflect

Another clever ambient puzzler to add to the 3DS's already teetering stack. Quell Reflect is smarter than most.

Adventure Island

Running around, collecting fruit, and offing bad guys will surely never become old hat. Still brilliantly playable.

Pop'n Twinbee

Complex, yet appealing to a wide audience, this remains a masterclass in shooter design that has matured with age.

Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland

This deluxe version of a vintage NES adventure may still may be fun but is comprimised on Wii U on several fronts.

Gaiabreaker

A barren, boring and brief shooter which wouldn't have passed muster in the '80s. That's not flippancy, but fact.

Super Toy Cars

Save your cash for Mario Kart 8 - or spend it on Cheerios to sprinkle into a racetrack of your very own.
