REVIEW – Metroid: Samus Returns

It’s been a while since we have been graced with a proper Metroid adventure. Sure there was Federation Force, and though I thought it was an okay game, many would argue that it doesn’t exist to them, but that’s neither here nor there. No, this is about Samus’ reimagined mission to SR388 in an attempt to rid the universe of Metroids.

Could Metroid: Samus Returns take on a fight against Samus Aran, or does it have less life than a victim of a Metroid feeding? Find out in our review after the break!

REVIEW – Monster Hunter Stories

We’ve always assumed that, in the world of Monster Hunter, monsters were just there for the hunt. But what if you could befriend the monsters, ride them, and take them into battle. Believe it or not, there’s actually whole societies who have hidden themselves from the rest of the world for many years, and in those societies there are Riders!

In Monster Hunter Stories, you are the Rider whose solemn duty is to form bona with monsters and get to the bottom of the mystery of declining populations and the Black Blight. Will Monster Hunter Stories fly with pride like your trusty Ratha, or will it not even digest into Monster Dung? Find out in our review after the break!

Throwback Review – Super Mario 3D Land

I’m back… again! Apologies for my absence, I was assigned to a job to do over the past week (someone’s been busy). Anywho, Our recent review of the charming Miitopia the other week marked NintyBuzz’s 50th review since we went live just over three years ago.

As a little celebration of sorts, I decided to search for my first ever game review I wrote (which was documented), and what I found was a review for Super Mario 3D Land which I wrote for a double page spread as part of my Media Studies assignment at college. I later submitted it as part of the YouView feature back in the 3DS Buzz days.

This review is completely unedited (aside from the odd typo correction and addition of screenshots) from when I was about 15 or 16. Please note that these were my views at the time (in 2012), but the game has still pretty much lived up to them up to this very day.

Check it out after the break!

REVIEW – Splatoon 2

UPDATE – This review has now been updated detailing our full opinion on the Salmon Run mode.

It’s been just over two years since Nintendo graced us with the inkredible Splatoon. The title gave a fresh new experience for the third person shooter genre. Though it was initially scampi on content, frequent updates kept the game fresh. Nintendo are now ready to release the next entry into the franchise, onto the Nintendo Switch, with Splatoon 2.

Is Splatoon 2 completely off the hook, or are you batter off skipping it entirely? Find out in our review after the break… along with even more terrible puns!

REVIEW – Flip Wars

Flip Wars (or Battle Sports Mekuru as it’s known in Japan) essentially borrows elements from Orthello (Reversi), Bomberman, and Splatoon to create a new concept of ‘battle sport’. On paper, it may seem like a very bizarre combination, but in practice it turns out to be a fairly neat new concept, for a fairly reasonable price.

Does Flip Wars have what it takes to win over that that £9 pocket money, or is it not even worth flipping off? Find out in our review, after the break!
