Nintendo 3DS Launch Game Review Round-up: The Best & The Rest
The time has come, and the Nintendo 3DS launch is finally here. Of course, getting a brand new video game system is extremely exciting, but with a wide variety of game choices, early adopters might get confused about what to get. Luckily, we're here to help you make an informed decision by giving you the low-down on what's currently available out there and the games that turned out best versus the ones that didn't fare so well. Note that none of them are bad, but of course some are better than others. Take a look at the mini-reviews to find out what you should get, and don't forget to check back soon for GameDynamo's full reviews of each game, which we'll be covering over the next few weeks.
Capcom did a great job bringing the SSFIV experience to the handheld, as its nearly identical to its console counterparts, although the 3D doesn't do much for it. Also, the control choices may cause some trouble for long-time fans, but its fantastic gameplay and character roster more than make up for it.
This one might not be the best game at showcasing what the 3DS can do in terms of graphics, but if you actually want to have fun and enjoy strategy titles like Advance Wars, Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars might be the one for you.
As a game, it's not most complete package, so if you're looking for a lasting experience, it may not be the way to go. Still, the game looks outstanding, taking advantage of the 3D effects like no other. Plus, you'll have a blast floating with your Miis around Wuhu Island.
Though this game isn't for older players, with new puppies, cats, and cool 3D visuals, the younger ones won't be able to resist the new version of Nintendo's pet sim, plus it packs a handful of new features, including Mii support.
While it may feel like a light version of what The Sims 3 offers on PC, the 3DS version brings pretty much the full Sims experience to the handheld, and it looks good for the most part. Don't expect wonders from the facial recognition feature, however.
Namco brings you a 3DS racer you'll enjoy, but they "forgot" to include online multiplayer competitions. Luckily, Ridge Racer 3D looks great in 3D and contains a plethora of game modes and extras racing fans shouldn't pass on.
