I am kind of perplexed by all the one star reviews complaining it's the same game. The Ultra Sun/Moon games are essentially remakes/remasters with all new content and drastic storyline changes to the originals, and have always been marketed as such. It's not intended to be a completely different game as, say, from Red/Blue to Gold/Silver.

I want to be the very best,
Like no one ever was.
To catch them is my real test,
To train them is my cause!
(I will travel across the land,
Searching far and wide.
Each Pokemon to understand
The power that's inside!)
Pokemon!
Gotta catch em' all!
It's you and me,

I want to say that I've been a long time Pokemon fan. I've played Pokemon Red and Blue during my childhood and played every gen except 4 and 6. I've noticed a decline in the series after Gen 5. Cut scenes were long, lack of special events, super friendly rivals, easier games, etc. Despite this I still loved Sun and Moon and they are

Ok, I know I'm a little old to be playing this, but at 65 and all that is going on this country let alone the world, I can honestly say it is a great escape. It's simple, cute, fun, and creative. I have been a gaming grandma since 1981 when I was introduced to a computer game called Zork created at MIT, I believe. That game got me hooked

It's Animal Crossing New Leaf. It's a fun game. It's a life simulation game basically. I enjoy every minute I spend playing and perhaps spend too much time playing. Thankfully they released the Welcome Amiibo version, which contains the amiibo update and a few new villagers. This version isn't the Welcome Amiibo edition, but Nintendo has

I purchased 2 copies of Animal Crossing: New Leaf game about a week apart. The first copy I received was fine. Upon the second copy's arrival I noticed something odd, a green sticker placed on the ARTWORK of the game, not even the case but the ARTWORK. This was also the case with my Nintendogs game as well!

As someone who still has his Nintendo 64 and this game, I've found it less and less pleasant to play this as time has gone on. Even keeping a CRT in my basement for retro gaming, the 64 just doesn't hold up as well as and it's sad watching games I love become more and more unplayable relative to modern gaming. I picked this remake up

Ocarina of Time is my first experience with a Legend of Zelda game and it has made me a fan already! This is simply the best game I’ve ever seen for a portable gaming device. The graphics are breathtakingly beautiful with a perfect 3D effect. The story and characters are magical and intriguing. There is also so much to do in this game,

There are seemingly infinite reviews of OoT as a game, so I will speak about its merit as a 3DS remake. The 3DS Remasterings of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are superbly done. I would unquestionably label them as the definitive versions of each respective title. Gyroscope controls make aiming a breeze. Superior frame rates and

[MINOR SPOILERS] With most of the Mario titles in the past decade, I've always been disappointed to smash my way through them in under a week without having faced any real difficulty at any point in the game.

This is a fantastic game! Although it is kinda linear just like a regular 2D Mario game, the 3D space and movement make it great! There's lots of levels to explore and plenty of secrets to look for.
Most importantly, this game makes great use of the 3D effect of the 3DS systems. Several levels are designed in such a way that the

A colorful, beautiful Mario adventure, and one that mixes old and new. The Tanooki suit returns, along with Fire Flower Mario from the old NES Super Mario, but mixed in are only *some* moves from Mario 64, Galaxy, Odyssey, etc - there is no triple jump or crouch jump, like Mario has had since 64. But there is a crouch, a long jump, wall

This game brings back so many fun memories second Zelda game I played after Ocarina of Time, wish I could have enjoyed Breath of the Wild as much as this game.

I really could not get into this game. Having a constant timer till gameover was way to stressful. Additionally, the art and story telling is very dark and macabre and disturbed my children. Finally, many of the minigames were more difficult because of poor controls than because of game difficulty. I have now tried all of the zelda

This is a downright amazing game! I was surprised because, as someone who doesn't play Nintendo games often, I had never heard of this franchise. This enters the realm of instant classic and I hope Nintendo makes more and expands.

Dark Moon is a game I did not expect. I had thought it was a remastered version of the original Luigi's Mansion and it turns out to be a sequel. However, this game holds up on its own, even if you have not played the first game you are not missing anything.

This game is fun and challenging. My son is a HUGE Mario Kart fan, and just received a 2ds for his birthday. So this game seemed like the perfect gift for him.

Coming from someone who hated Black and White... I love this game.

3D is used sparingly but it's wonderful when it does come in. It's not as easy as other newer Pokemon games. The availability of Pokemon with hidden natures is nice (unlike Black and White) but... I do take issue with having to go online (Reddit, anyone?) and

I'm a long time Pokemon player, having only missed gen 2. I tend to log hundreds of hours on each title trying to catch them all and get a team of high-level Pokemon.

Mario 2 is far better than the original Mario DS.

Newcomers and Metroid fanboys can rejoice together - We got the Metroid game we both need and deserve, after a 10 year break from classic side-scrolling action.

Metroid II: The Return of Samus is mostly fondly remembered for it's fantastic ending that leads right into Super Metroid. There was more to the game at first. Being a Gameboy game it was actually quite an impressive feat and managed to evoke some real classic Metroid tropes such as a great atmosphere and a sense of being lost.

This is a shining example of a 3DS game done right.
I cut my teenage teeth on A Link to the Past, so this was an easy sell for me. But I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't more or less a port -- it is a full re-imagining of that Hyrule in an experience tuned very well for 3DS. Temples take about an hour to complete if you're

Now that I've had the game for a while now, I feel like I've earned the right to write a review. I haven't finished the game yet, but I'm more than halfway through the main worlds.

Mine came in a red box instead of a white one like the normal 3DS box. I don't know if that was just me or what, but it isn't all that important.

What a great game. Originally released as a GameCube launch title, Luigi's Mansion is a classic that's always fun to revisit. It's also the only GameCube game that was designed to be played in 3D, which makes a 3DS rerelease fitting. Yes, this version is in 3D!

This was a really great game. The controls on the New 3Ds XL are better than on the normal 3Ds/3Ds XL because of the c-stick, which is used to control the poltergeist 3000.

Very quirky game with a plethora of stuff to do. The game starts off pretty simple enough. You make your first resident for your freshly created island.

Life sims typically have a core gameplay goal of self-improvement and progression, but in Tomodachi Life, that thread is virtually non-existent.

Got this game on a whim out of boredom and after I started it I was hooked. I loved it so much and couldn't stop playing it. I actually completed it, which for me (someone who gets bored incredibly quickly) it's a huge surprise. The learning curve was gentle, but there were enough puzzles and collectables that it doesn't feel super easy.

I can't say much about how Dark Moon holds up to the original Luigi's Mansion on the Gamecube since I've never played it, but I found this game to be a thoroughly satisfying experience. The single-player campaign consists of short levels that ‒ while linear/directed ‒ require a bit of exploration and thinking in order to complete.

Delightful fun. Luigi oozes a lovable personality that stands in stark contrast to his blank slate of a brother.

The concept of this game is hilarious. You make look-alikes of yourself and people you know, with customized personalities. You can buy them outfits, hats, room designs. Food...
