REVIEW: THOR: GOD OF THUNDER (NINTENDO 3DS/Wii)

For Sega’s series of Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase One games, it was the PS3/Xbox 360 games that most people were looking towards and being promoted in the press, but with a few exceptions, those were the ones that were to be avoided. Save Captain America: Super Soldier where the at-the-time next-gen version of the game was clearly…

REVIEW: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (NINTENDO 3DS)

In 2011, Beenox delivered the first ever Spider-Man game to the 3DS with the release of Spider-Man: Edge of Time. Edge of Time was a respectable port to Nintendo’s underpowered handheld (in comparison to the main SKU of the game on PS3 and Xbox 360) that suffered from what a lot of 3-D games did on the PSP. The…
