LEGO Lord of the Rings video review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video review of LEGO Lord of the Rings from TT Games and Warner Bros. Interactive for the Nintendo 3DS. The LEGO games are basically simple beat 'em ups, but with some exploration and puzzle solving. With Lord of the Rings, it's business as usual. You play as characters and in environments from the movies, doing the same things you've done in prior LEGO titles. There's some combat, but the game's primary focus is solving puzzles and collecting LEGO studs. This video review features video gameplay footage of LEGO Lord of the Rings for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D from Capcom for the Nintendo 3DS. Although Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is a very rushed and uninspired package, the game is still addictive as hell. This is the same frantic gameplay mode that Resident Evil fans are familiar with, and that's the strength of The Mercenaries 3D. Unfortunately, that's also its biggest shortcoming. The Mercenaries is a mini-game that has been included in every major release in the Resident Evil series since Resident Evil 3. Although it works well on the 3DS, Capcom didn't flesh things out enough to make the Mercenaries seem like more than a mini-game. This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars from Traveller's Tales and LucasArts for the Nintendo 3DS. The LEGO Star Wars games are obviously meant for kids, but they're well-made and charming. You play LEGO Star Wars III as a bunch of different Star Wars characters, each realized in LEGO form. The characters, the settings, it's all made from LEGO blocks. It's hard not to smile at that, because it's categorically adorable. The game follows the events of the Clone Wars animated television show, so you're basically playing through episodes of the show as if they were done not with CGI, but with LEGO. This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars on the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Pokémon Rumble Blast Review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Pokémon Rumble Blast, an action battle game developed by Ambrella and published in 2011 by Nintendo for the 3DS. We'll call that Wii version a test run. It didn't have the full roster of Pokémon, it didn't have much of a plot, it got repetitive and samey real quick. But this is 2011, and we have the technology to make it better, stronger, more sensical, and heck. Make it in 3D! It's Pokémon, streamlined and in real-time, with 150% more wind-up keys. This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of Pokémon Rumble Blast for the 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

Transformers: Prime video review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video review of Transformers: Prime from Now Production and Activision for the Nintendo 3DS. If you've seen our review of the Wii version, apply the same general gameplay template to the 3DS. Transformers: Prime is an impressive brawler with solid fighting mechanics and a fun mixture of driving elements. You play each new mission as a different Transformer, which is a big part of the diversity that keeps the game interesting. Mixing all the different attacks together is when Transformers is at its most entertaining. This video review features video gameplay footage of Transformers: Prime for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Super Mario 3D Land review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Super Mario 3D Land from Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. This isn't the first time Mario has proven a console's potential. This isn't the first time he's made every other game on a system seem like it wasn't even trying. This isn't the first spectacular Mario game, but it does feel special. Super Mario 3D Land isn't the best Mario game of all time, but we've got a flower and three mushrooms that say it's pretty close. The first major 3DS game developed by Nintendo that isn't a remake of a game from the last millennium, Super Mario 3D Land is an incredible release if only for the design expertise it displays. The genius of Super Mario 3D Land is its balance and how it incorporates nearly three decades of the plumber's evolution into a single experience...delightfully familiar, yet viewed from a whole new perspective. This video review features video gameplay footage of Super Mario 3D Land for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Style Savvy: Trendsetters video review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video review of Style Savvy: Trendsetters from syn Sophia and Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. Style Savvy is a simulation game that puts you in the mauve colored flats of an upstart fashion assistant. After you get a job at a local boutique, you soon discover you have a true gift for the art of telling people what to wear. And your rise through the fashion industry begins. The game is very cute and polished, and it's actually kind of addictive. This video review features video gameplay footage of Style Savvy: Trendsetters for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Brunswick Pro Bowling from FarSight Studios and Crave Entertainment for the Nintendo 3DS. Brunswick Pro Bowling is also available for the Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and iOS. The Nintendo 3DS version is the seventh iteration of Brunswick Pro Bowling, a game that has reliably sucked since 2007. Brunswick Pro Bowling is a complete waste of plastic, manpower, electricity, marketing, money and your time. Brunswick Pro Bowling is a bowling game with two main gameplay modes, each of which is equally laughable. This video review features video gameplay footage of Brunswick Pro Bowling for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Deca Sports Extreme from Hudson Soft for the Nintendo 3DS. Deca Sports Extreme is the fifth game in Hudson Soft's Deca Sports series. You'd think after doing something four times, you might get better at it. Such is not the case with Deca Sports. In fact, if anything, the games are getting worse, and this 3D iteration continues that trend. Deca Sports Extreme is a collection of ten sports games. It also hopes you'll assume those ten sports games are like the ones in Wii Sports, as in lengthy minigames with charm, depth and awesome controls. None of those three things apply to Deca Sports. These minigames have more in common with Mario Party than Wii Sports. They're short, they're shallow and they don't play well. This video review features video gameplay footage of Deca Sports Extreme for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Paper Mario: Sticker Star (developed by Intelligent Systems, published by Nintendo) for Nintendo 3DS. In a just world, I could fill this description with appropriate clip art and be done with it. But in lieu of a giant cat or a vacuum or anything, I'll just have to go with the standard words: It's paper, it's Mario, it's kinda RPGish (but not quite), it's platformerish (with instanced battles), it's level-demarcated and puzzle-filled and occasionally silly. Frequently silly. But if you're going to return the world to peace after Bowser goes all holo-foil (no, seriously), you're going to need to track down the Royal Stickers FOUND IN SPECIALLY MARKED PACKS OF BLORB SHROOMS. (No, wait, that's the wrong Mario RPG lineage.) This video review features video gameplay footage of Paper Mario: Sticker Star for Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion from Papaya Studios and Crave Entertainment for the Nintendo 3DS. So Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion arrives on the Nintendo 3DS with an awesome title and an awesome premise. This is a blatant Smash Bros. clone, only with a roster of Cartoon Network characters instead of Nintendo mascots. You're playing as a variety of Cartoon Network stars, everyone from Dexter and the Powderpuff Girls to newer stars like Chowder. Unfortunately, the execution is a huge disappointment. It's like someone came up with a great idea, but it had to be rushed out the door as quickly as possible. Rushed development of a licensed game. Imagine that. This video review features video gameplay footage of Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Samurai Warriors Chronicles from Omega Force and Tecmo Koei for the Nintendo 3DS. Samurai Warriors Chronicles was a launch title for the 3DS, but it was also the worst kind of launch title. This is a textbook example of a publisher throwing a franchise with name recognition on to a new platform as quickly as possible to have their brand along the system at launch. This franchise is the epitome of a button masher in the literal and implied meanings of the term. You're mashing buttons, and it's unabashedly repetitive. Games like this are the reason "hack and slash" is such a descriptive name for their genre. Within the tedious realm of said genre, few games are as popular as Samurai Warriors. This video review features video gameplay footage of Samurai Warriors Chronicles for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions from Namco Bandai for the Nintendo 3DS. Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions is a compilation based on Namco's two biggest properties, Pac-Man and Galaga. In Dimensions, you get the original arcade games and four newer versions of Pac-Man and Galaga. Unfortunately, this six game package is as half-hearted as it is thin. Pac-Man and Galaga are two of the best games ever, but when you throw them on the 3DS and shrink them so that they fit on the top screen alone, it kind of makes them hard to play. This is a wildly overpriced package with an insulting amount of content, which makes it a fitting summation of the 3DS's existence thus far. This video review features video gameplay footage of Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of 3D Classics: Excitebike from Arika and Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. 3D Classics: Excitebike is a downloadable game available in the 3DS eShop. Roughly the 37th port Excitebike has received since its original release in 1985, this new version of Excitebike features a great 3D effect and a gorgeous widescreen display. Excitebike has never looked better, and to us, this is the definitive version of Excitebike. The game plays as well as it ever has, but playing it through this gorgeous new window feels like a new experience. The pixels are crisp even in 2D, and when the 3D effect is on, they pop off the screen better than even a lot of retail 3DS games achieve. This video review features video gameplay footage of 3D Classics: Excitebike for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Rise of the Guardians video review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video review of Rise of the Guardians from Torus Games and D3 Publisher for the Nintendo 3DS. Rise of the Guardians falls into the obvious category of "kid friendly beat 'em up based on popular movies." You play as five characters from the film—North, Tooth, Sandman, Bunnymund and Jack Frost. That's supposed to make mashing the B button less tiresome. This video review features video gameplay footage of Rise of the Guardians for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

50 Classic Games 3D video review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video review of 50 Classic Games 3D from Maximum Family Games for the Nintendo 3DS. This is a compilation of 50 classic games divided into four categories. It has board games, card games, puzzles and action games. As for their quality, they're sort of hit and miss. For example, air hockey is surprisingly good, but tennis is just a crappier version of the same game. In fact, for each enjoyable one, there was a boring one. This video review features video gameplay footage of 50 Classic Games 3D for the Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
