I considered just doing a mini-review of Level 5’s Nintendo 3DS RPG Crimson Shroud. After all, how would a simple $7.99 digital-only title be considered comparable to the rest of full games out there?

But after playing it, I realized that such a small review couldn’t possibly do Crimson Shroud any justice. Not only does this game deliver a full package that so many fail to provide these days, it does so at that same $7.99 price which might turn off skeptics.

The crux of the Kirby series is that it simply peaked too early. While it wasn’t the first game in Nintendo and HAL’s popular series, Kirby’s Adventure was the first a lot of people played, and it is coming up on being 20 years old. After all this time, it still plays like the same timeless masterpiece that, quite frankly, makes every game that came after come up short by comparison.

Trials Fusion is a great game held back at every turn by its own aesthetics and the technology that powers it. The deep game we know and love is there, but to find it requires disabling options and overlooking some glaring issues.

Trials Fusion is set in the future. We know this because the intentionally cheesy opening theme song’s lyrics are “Welcome to the Future! Man, Machine, The Future!” Via the equally cheesy announcers that accompany each track, you find out throughout the game that the riders are clones, that the world is full of mutant animals, and that the environment is going crazy.
