(Nin­tendo 3DS) HHH Age: 7+

In­sert­ing your­self into a story is a cheap form of en­ter­tain­ment and Mi­itopia ex­tracts max­i­mum mileage from the no­tion of in­cor­po­rat­ing your Mii avatar (and those of your friends, en­e­mies or favourite celebs) into a breezy role-play­ing ad­ven­ture.

It’s un­doubt­edly fun for young­sters, who’ll be amused by the gen­tle hu­mour and wacky sce­nar­ios. But even they will recog­nise the lack of true depth in the turn-based com­bat and the lin­ear­ity of the plot.
