With the Legend of Zelda series finally getting a new game on 3DS after the console’s two years on the market, expectations were running high.  A sequel to A Link to the Past in a familiar style?  A proper overworld to explore with a ton of interesting content and connected locations?  Difficult arcade based gameplay?  That all sounded a tad ambitious back when the game was first shown.  Heck, some people were even worried this title was going to hurt the legacy of the SNES classic with its association alone. Thankfully though, everything has turne d out fine.  And based on my recent full playthrough of The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds, I can hence say that the […]

Mario & Luigi Dream Team Review; The Best Mario RPG in History!

Dream Team Box art US

As of a few days ago, Mario & Luigi Dream Team was released in Europe, giving me the chance to play it through to the ending.  It had a tough job following up on Bowser’s Inside Story (thanks to its predecessors high quality in general), and some people were skeptical it could. After all, other recent Mario games were a bit disappointing… But now I’ve played it, I can safely say it is most definitely a worthy follow-up to the previous Mario & Luigi games, with a level of quality and gameplay depth that makes even the best elements of the last few games pale in comparison.  So here’s my review of it at last, Mario & Luigi Dream Team […]

Luigi’s Mansion 2 is a brilliant game. Yeah, that’s pretty much the entire gist of the review and the one message you should care for right off the bat, so there’s no real question whether it’s a game you should buy in future. But let me explain why it’s a great game in more detail via this review. Basically, Luigi’s Mansion 2 is better than the first game in every way. It’s better on a technical level, it’s better on a gameplay/design level, and it’s so much better on a replay value/difficulty level that the original can’t even begin to compare to it. Let’s start with the technical side and the graphics and music first… Graphics Graphically, Luigi’s Mansion 2 […]

Mario Tennis Open Review

Mario Tennis Open is the latest game in the long-running tennis series by Camelot. People who have enjoyed the series in the past should know exactly what to expect here in terms of the game’s presentation. All of the iconic Mario characters are present, the courts have a great amount of variety, and there is something to be said about the inherent polish of Camelot’s titles. But does this entry live up to the great games of the series’ past? For the single player portion of the game, there are three main game types to choose from: Tournament Play, Exhibition, and Special Games (which are mini games). With Tournament and Exhibition we get the main type of game play: actual […]

Nintendo 3DS Daily is experiencing technical problems

Apologies for the lack of recent posts here, it seems like the last day or two of content has been lost after the site’s database was corrupted and the site was restored from backups.  Still, it’s not all bad news.  At least the site isn’t completely down and unavailable any more. Nintendo 3DS Daily will start updating again in a few hours.  Maybe then I can post a few articles I had saved but didn’t get round to posting yet.  Or my piece about the best Nintendo remakes in history. Sorry for all this inconvenience.

Kid Icarus Uprising

It’s by a guest writer of sorts this time, known as re11ding on the Nintendo 3DS Community forums.  He said we could post this up as a review, and since it seems the better of the few reviews the game got on the forums, it’s now an official one for Nintendo 3DS Daily. There’s also a shorter review of the NES Kid Icarus game. Re11ding’s original review is below. Pictures added by editor. Hello all. re11ding here for another faithful review on a game. Instead of one game though, I’m going to review two! Recently, Kid Icarus: Uprising came out for the 3DS. It was the first game to feature Pit as the main character since Kid Icarus for the […]

Edge Magazine Gives Kid Icarus 8/10

swordmaster2293DS Game Reviews, Nintendo 3DS News1 comment

Gaming magazine ‘Edge’ has awarded Kid Icarus: Uprising a rock hard, 8/10 Edge states that Kid Icarus: Uprising is a smart splicing of Star Fox and Zelda, which, of course, is a good thing. “Kid Icarus is back, then, and it turns out we did miss him. With Uprising, those internet petitioners finally have something they can be proud of.  The control scheme initially seems lopsided, but works wonderfully for the flying sections, while any slight clumsiness on foot is countered by a responsive dodge.  A worryingly compulsive weapon-fusing system thrown in, adding a chunk of the Pokemon gene to a game that already feels like a smart splicing of Star Fox and Zelda.” ~ Edge What do you have […]

Mario Kart 7 Review; An Excellent addition to the series

Mario-Kart 7 Box Art

As the years have gone on, it seems like a fair amount of reviewers have begun to get tired of Mario Kart. With all the other Nintendo series getting regularly changed up and gimmicks being thrown in all over the place, the Mario Kart series has begun to seem like a series which merely makes evolutionary rather than revolutionary changes to the core formula in every game. But forget that. Mario Kart 7 is a good game not because of any crazy gimmicks or massive ‘innovation’, but because the timeless formula works perfectly. It’s improved on the past games in every way that actually matters, the graphics and music are arguably better, the track design and choices are much better, […]
