KID ICARUS: UP­RIS­ING (PG)

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gaming -

3DS, $69.95 ★★★★★ This shooter is slick and fast, with game­play that’s di­vided be­tween thrilling on-rails flight se­quences and land-based ac­tion. Sty­lus and cir­cle pad con­trols make the lat­ter lev­els cum­ber­some, but they’re still en­ter­tain­ing. Up­ris­ing’s en­er­getic per­son­al­ity shines through with chatty char­ac­ters and en­ter­tain­ing bosses. There is plenty of depth here too, thanks to an ad­justable dif­fi­culty sys­tem and an ob­ses­sive fo­cus on weapon va­ri­ety. Kid Icarus: Up­ris­ing is a gamer’s game, and that’s a good thing. Out now.
