Nintendo Life

Here are links to all of the reviews I’ve done for Nintendo Life.  This is a work in progress, until they fire me.

All of these reviews are edited by others before they go live, and in some cases a final score may have changed in order to reflect the opinion of Nintendo Life as a whole more accurately, but they are overall indicative of my feelings on the games.
