Kid Icarus: Uprising all the way! So good to see an old character get a new game, but this is surely the best 'comeback' in gaming history! This game might just be the greatest handheld game I have ever played! Every aspect was completly fresh and new; Storyline is the best in a Nintendo game for me, lots of twists and turns with likeable characters and funny dialouge all leading to an epic finale! Gameplay felt fast and different to any other shooter, the the controls take a while to get used to, but with the stand, the game is precise in aiming and incredibly fun. The multiplayer was exciting, and a supply of endless madness and possibility, especially with clever and silly items (like an eggplant bomb). The weapons are up there with the likes of Borderlands in terms of number and creativity, so many ways to obtain them, so many combinations to fuse them, and you can give and recieve them with streetpass and spotpass. The game is bursting with character, even the menus are fun! The game has amazing replayability, the treasure hunt objectives, multiplayer, collecting weapons, collecting powers (another great addition to the game) and just listening to the brilliant music. The soundtrack of this game should be remembered as one of Nintendo's best! I thought it was a scandal that KI:U won nothing at the Golden Joysticks, but a game doesn't need awards to be perfect, and that's what this game is to me, perfect in every way!
I also thought thar Resi: Revelations is the best third-party 3DS game, and certainily the best Resi on handhelds, no question. That game has a lot of replayability too, but my vote is definetly for kid Icarus!
As you can tell, I like the 3DS. A lot.
