- Solatorobo: Red the Hunter
- The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd
- Monster Hunter: Freedom Unite
Much like the previous remakes; it separates itself from the rest of the games in the series, and has allowed the developers to truly experiment. It's not perfect - it's not even my favorite remake - but it is one of the distinguished Pokemon games that I have played in years.
When it all comes down to it, Super Smash Bros for Wii U is a well put together game. It knows what it wants to be - and what it sets out to accomplish, it does so in spades! The gameplay is solid, smooth, and enjoyable - and the entire product has been polished to an absolute shine! Don't let the name fool you; as this game has a personality all of its own!
Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus is an entertaining romp, that will probably engross you for the length of time needed to complete 2 or 3 of the games 4 storylines - but unless you can find yourself lost in the games dizzying amount of fanservice, all that's left to find is a decent beat-em-up, with some surprising character to back it up.
Although muted, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D delivers mostly the same experience that playing the original Wii release would, with the small details suffering the most in transition. If you simply must play this version, it's a worthy port but playing the original release is the better option.
Overall, regardless of whether this is your latest Ys adventure, or even your first one, you could certainly do worse than picking up Ys VI. For fans, it'll probably seem a little less polished than later titles, but for both newcomers and veterans alike, there's a lot to love here. As a starting point for getting into the series, Ys VI makes sense, and for a returning player it's a no-brainer.
Taken as a full product, Lost Dimension is one of the most unique Tactical RPGs that I've played in a long time. Although not everything about it is 100% perfect, enough about the game is unique and interesting that it can easily be recommended to both fans and newcomers to the genre.
There's a lot to like about Persona 4: Dancing All Night; unfortunately a lack of cohesive game design hinders the product as a whole. For an MSRP of $50, justifying a purchase is difficult. It's good, but compared to the competition, it flounders.
