    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze review

    By 21 February 2014

    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is proof positive that 2D platformers still have a place in modern gaming. It is, quite simply, a superb platform title and a much needed one for the Wii U. The return of Donkey Kong might not necessarily reinvigorate...

    Super Mario 3D World review

    By 3 December 2013

    Super Mario 3D World was released on the same day as the PlayStation 4 made its bow in the UK - but the famous Italian plumber is no less significant to the arena of gaming because of it. Indeed the release marks the day the Wii U became more than "that...

    Hands on: Pikmin 3 review

    By 16 June 2013

    For whatever reason we've got the 90s advert for Penguin chocolate bars running through our heads. "P-p-p-pick up a Pikmin," we think to ourselves - mental Freudian slip in full effect - as we pluck flower-topped, carrot-like characters out of the ground...

    Super Mario 3D World preview: First play of Mario in 3D on Wii U

    By 14 June 2013

    Mario in 3D has been missing from the Wii U since the console's launch and fans have been pining for his return. Back when Mario 64 launched alongside the N64 all those years ago, our Italian plumber friend acquired a new status - busting out of the restrictive...
