Review: The Legend of Zelda ~ Breath of The Wild (Switch Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Walk On The Wild Side!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is a fantastic open-world adventure game that completely reinvents the franchise. And while it's an excellent title it feel like it's lost some of that Zelda magic. Despite this we still feel the game is one of the best titles in the franchise. Continue reading our review to find out why!



Breath of The Wild is an open-world adventure game and possesses a massive world with tons of secrets and hidden areas to explore and despite being much smaller in scale than Xenoblade Chronicles X, Nintendo did a fantastic job with the topography of the world in the game to make you truly feel like an explorer! This is the game's greatest strength, however it's also its greatest weakness as well since the game nearly does away with complex puzzle solving and dungeons in favor of smaller and easier shrines.

These mini dungeons number in the 100's, but are substantially simpler than a typical dungeon in the Zelda series. With the exception of this, however Breath of The Wild is a fantastic entry in the series and other aspects such as the story-telling as well as sidequests and pseudo guild quests are superb and will keep you entertained for many hours!



The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is also the first game in the Zelda series to have full voice acting in most of the important story scenes which gives a breath of fresh air to the narrative of the game! The difficulty of the game is fairly easy for the most part, though it can become somewhat challenging at times. For those who want a challenge, there's a difficulty setting for that! The item scavenging and pet system are extremely rich and can make exploration extremely fun for completionists!

You can also cook and craft items in the game as well. This system is somewhat limited, but is enjoyable nonetheless! The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is also by far the longest game in the Zelda series clocking in at over 300 hours to complete one hundred percent!



The controls in the game a flawless and are a piece of cake to learn which is always a very good thing. The visuals in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild are absolutely gorgeous and even give Xenoblade Chronicles X a run for its money in-terms of the best looking Wii U games! The environments as well as the character/enemy models are intricately detailed and the Cel-Shading gives the game a breathtaking art-direction unlike anything we've ever seen before!

The soundtrack is also absolutely flawless with fully orchestrated dynamic tracks that not only fit the mood of the game, but also change in rhythm and tempo depending on what's happening around Link which adds to the game's atmosphere!



The Switch Difference:

Besides a slightly higher resolution and better frame rate on the Nintendo Switch version when docked both games are nearly identical. The only difference we can think of is that the Switch port has better textures and object models, but overall you'll have an amazing experience with the game regardless of which console you play it on!



Bottom-Line:

With an incredible story, superb gameplay, and flawless controls, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild will draw any Wii U or Switch owners to the game while the unparalleled audio-visual presentation will keep players coming back time and time again. Honestly the only drawback that the game has is that it is too different from the other games in the series, however in-terms of open-world games, Breath of The Wild is in a league of its own which is why we give the game a perfect level of recommendation to any and all Switch and Wii U owners!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10

Review: Kick & Fennick (Wii U eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rock Solid Platforming!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Developed by Jaywalkers Interactive and published by Abstraction Games, Kick & Fennick is a fantastic 2.5D platformer with alot of charm and a fantastic audio-visual presentation! Is this enough to make Kick & Fennick a blockbuster indie hit like Shovel Knight or Freedom Planet? Not quite, but it's still a fantastic title in its own right and here's why!

Kick & Fennick is a fairly lengthy platformer with over 5 hours of gameplay. The gameplay itself is quite unique as your character will use a rather oversized gun to launch himself to reach otherwise inaccessible platforms and in certain cases to defeat enemies. There are some collectables in the game, but not many.



The game starts off easy, but actually becomes fairly difficult in the later stages and should provide a decent challenge which is always a good thing!

The controls are perfect and should be a cinch for most players to learn! Visually the game is gorgeous and looks on par with AAA 2.5D platformers such as Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze so expect to be wowed! The soundtrack is also superb and fits the game quite nicely!



Bottom-Line:

With great gameplay, flawless controls, and a perfectly balanced level of difficulty, Kick & Fennick will draw players in, and its charming and superb audio-visual presentation will leave a smile on their faces! These reasons and more are why we highly recommend the game to all Wii U owners! It's not quite at the same level as masterpieces such as Shovel Knight, but it comes very close!

Price: $14.99

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★½☆☆ 8.5/10

Review: Tumblestone (Wii U eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Holy Cleopatra!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Developed and published by The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild, Tumblestone is a match-three puzzler like no other, as it possesses some of the best multiplayer action that we've ever seen in the genre as well as many unique modes of play!

Tumblestone's single player campaign starts off relatively easy, but quickly becomes exceptionally difficult to the point that the game might be too tough for the average player to complete. The multiplayer is the real draw of the game and it's among the best in the genre in that regard! There are several modes of multiplayer including tug of war, vs., and more that will test you and your friends' skills.



The controls are easy to learn and work quite well with the game. As for the visuals they are quite nice for a puzzler and there's quite a nice variety to the stage backgrounds, characters, and the world maps. The music and sound effects are also superb so expect a fantastic audio-visual presentation with this game!

Bottom-Line:

With excellent gameplay and intuitive controls Tumblestone will immediately hook fans of the puzzle genre and the challenging difficulty will keep you coming back for more, though the biggest draw of Tumblestone is most certainly its fantastic multiplayer modes! The charming graphics and excellent soundtrack is just the virtual cherry on top! There's really no reason to skip this game if you like the genre other than its price. At $24.99 it's one of the most expensive eShop only titles, however it feels like a retail game so the price is understandable!

Price: $24.99

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10

Review: Star Fox Zero (Wii U Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Hero or A Zero?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Developed by Platinum Games and published by Nintendo, Star Fox Zero is a unique on-the-rails shooter like no other in the series! But is this a good thing or bad? Continue reading our review to find out the answer to this question and so much more:

The gameplay in Star Fox Zero is very similar to most other cannon titles in the series, however there is no doubt that the game is far more robust and refined of an experience than its predecessors! First of all there are many new vehicles and tools to advance through the game's many stages including returning favorites such as the Land Rover and Submarines and new ones such as a mecha version of the Arwing and a drone which features a neat easter egg that we won't spoil!

Speaking of the drone sections while they certainly make good use of the Wii U Gamepad they're extremely difficult and feel more like a chore to take on. We'd have preferred these sections be at least a little more enjoyable, but as they are now they just aren't.



The game also features a robust achievement system and is it challenging! Some achievements are fairly straightforward, while others require a literal miracle to achieve which is great for replay value! The enemies in Star Fox Zero are quite interesting, however the controls and certain Gamepad features are very awkward and make the game feel like a chore to play which is a very bad thing and hurts our overall opinions of the game.

Visually the game looks decent enough and the frame-rate is okay for the most-part, however for a Wii U title the worlds are quite barren and the graphics in-general look like an early PS3 game, which is unfortunate given how gorgeous games such as Xenoblade Chronicles X, Tokyo Mirage Sessions, and Bayonetta look on the Wii U.

The sound-track is excellent and really fits the mood of the game, but recycled sound effects and voice-overs from Star Fox 64 make the game feel quite unoriginal which again, hurts our overall opinions of the game.



Bottom-Line:

With great albeit flawed gameplay, somewhat difficult controls that take hours to grow accustomed to, and a somewhat disappointing audio-visual presentation, Star Fox Zero is a solid game that could have been so much better. Despite being the weakest title in the series we still think the game deserves a solid level of recommendation!

Price: $49.99/"$59.99 With Star Fox Guard"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7/10
