Nintendo 3DS review scores - NGamer issues verdicts

Street Fighter, Pilotwings Resort and Nintendog + Cats reviewed

With just a few weeks left until the release of the Nintendo 3DS in Europe, reviews for its launch titles are beginning to flow.

The latest issue of Ngamer - on sale next Wednesday - contains a mammoth Nintendo 3DS feature that rates every launch game, including verdicts on the hotly anticipated first-party titles and Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition.

First up is Capcom's Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition. Earlier this week CVG delivered its own verdict on the game and NGamer seems to be equally taken with the title.

In its Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition review it describes Capcom's latest as "a staggering port of an exceptional
fighting game". While it may not be the definitive version of the game the "vibrant and beautiful" visuals and reworked controls earn it an 87 score in NGamer, making it one of their best launch titles.

Nintendogs + Cats also earned a fair bit of praise from the mag. NGamer awarded the title with an 80 review score, calling it "a better looking, better functioning version of the original".

The "accessible" nature of the game makes it rewarding to invest time into the game and work towards "those idiosyncratic moments that Nintendo do so well," it says.

The release of the Nintendo 3DS also sees the return of Pilotwings. This time however the game is set on the picturesque Wuhu Island from Wii Sports Resort.

NGamer's 75 review says the game is "beautiful to look at, very nice to play", however it's "disappointingly light on content". Despite this Pilotwings Resort is said to be "perfect for launch day, and maybe the day after" too.
