Pros: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is a revisit to the world of the SNES classis Legend of Zelda:A Link to The Past. This is not a HD port of A Link to The Past but rather a reimagined Zelda game with echos from the SNES original.
Audio: Top notch as you would expect. Tunes from A Link to The Past are vibrant and orchestrated very well as well as new scores for some areas.
Gameplay: The world is opened up for you to explore, as you will find numerous "dungeon" items such as bombs and the hookshot available to you very shortly into the game with the item rental system, yet you will still crawl through dungeons, find treasure, solve puzzles, and take down bosses. Game difficulty is a refreshing "challenging yet not indominable" similar to A Link to The Past. Thankfully, if you get lost or stuck on a puzzle you can always consult the fortune teller or the tip ghosts.
Length: I'm currently 10 hours into the game and have a great deal of story and sidequests still to do.
Cons: A Link Between Worlds is not a carbon copy of A Link To The Past, so certain fairy caves and heart containers might be in different locations than you remember. I probably shouldn't count this as a gripe but there is a lack of handholding. Certain gamers who enjoy linear gameplay may want to borrow from a friend or rent before buying. The openness of the world can lead you to wander into areas where monsters hit much harder early into your adventure. A second small gripe but I have yet to see a way to do the "3-heart Challenge", however there is no faults in the game worthy of knocking off an egg.

Couldn't ask for more Nostalgia w/ a similar Final Fantasy feel, but a Brand new twist
Pros: - Excellent game play and mechanics - Unique blend of strategies per each Job - Great reward with Street Pass and adding Friends - Extremely addicting, amazing sound track, and Voice interaction
Cons: - Some of the quests are a tad bit repetitive - Dungeons could've been a bit more challenging to solve - Characters can seem one dimensional at times - Storyline becomes a bit predictable ( there wasn't too much shock value)

Pros: I wasn't expecting much from this game when i bought it for my girlfriend, but it seems to bring to the table a good feeling of nostalgia while also brings some new features into the game that aren't to far fetched from the old game for snes.
i would rate it at a 93/100.
Cons: Egg aiming seems a little odd, or i'm just bad.

Pros: Where do I even start... The graphics are outstanding and the battles are awesome to watch. One of my absolute major + on this game is the global trading system. If you don't have access to older games or other people, no problem! The GTS makes it easy to search and find any pokemon you want! I've been more driven to catch, breed, and level than any other game.
Say goodbye to elite four farming as the restaurants in the game can level your pokemon from 1-40 easily in one go. The extra powers, built in exp share for your party and everything else this game holds just makes it more fun to level!
Didn't know how I was going to like the mega evolutions but they are seriously great. The main thing they do is change your type (Electric to Dragon, etc.) which makes for even more possibilities.
The inclusion of oddly evolving pokemon is rather fun as well. (I won't spoil with names) From flipping the gameboy upside down to evolving with special moves and so on!
I could go on for pages about this game but instead will just say it is the best pokemon game to date when it comes to accessibility to trading, other gamers, pokemon, training and little extras that are simply for the fun of it.
Cons: Absolutely none
Other Thoughts: Don't look up anything on the game, just play it and love it. Be surprised by everything it holds and how great it is.

Pros: + Kirby franchise is pretty fun + Varied powers with lots of moves + Fluid gameplay + Lots of collectibles in-game + Bosses are interesting and not necessarily pushovers
Cons: - Game is a little short - Story is a little bland but that's expected
Other Thoughts: This game is pretty fun and, if you're a Kirby fan, you'll enjoy it. It is a little short but Kirby games aren't exactly long to begin with. After you finish it, you can replay it as King Dedede in a mode where you try to finish levels with the best times. There are also a lot of keychains that will give feelings of nostalgia to some fans and something to aim towards for completionists.
There is a good amount of powers and each has different moves depending on the direction of the joystick or other factors (somewhat like the moves in Smash Bros. titles).
I recommend this game for younger players and fans of Kirby. The game isn't too hard but bosses can be challenging at times. There is a multiplayer mode I haven't tried.

Pros: Easily the most innovative rpg I've played in recent years! And harkens back classic elements we loved as kids (jobs, airships, crystals, engaging characters... I could keep going). Don't think it's a classics rehash along though, the brave/default system really takes turn based combat strategy to the next level. Making farming levels a breeze with the fast forward brave auto battle, and making the tough late game fights exciting exercises in thought and planning. It's like a final Fantasy.... But done right.
Cons: The difficulty of the optional bosses jumps extremely steeply at chapter 7/8, be ready for a heck of a challenge if your a completionist.
