If you’ve been paying attention to the Sonic universe, you’d know that Sonic Boom is the cartoon that featured a redesigned Sonic and his team. The launch of the series coincided with a new game series, also titled Sonic Boom. The two last year, Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for Nintendo 3DS and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for Nintendo Wii U were not well received, but developers Sanzaru said that they had learned from last year’s mistakes. Have they? I put on my running shoes and race along to try and find out of Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice really has learned from its predecessors. Try to keep up, will you?
Of all the highly anticipated titles this year, Super Smash Bros. has got to be somewhere near the top of the list. For the uninitiated, it’s a sprawling beat-em-up featuring a host of Nintendo’s greatest and toughest characters (and a few borrowed from …here and there, amongst other places). It’s a fabulous roster of fighting, and the 3DS version is upon us. I put on my fighting words and take the knocks to bring you this *knockout* review.
