Metro Reviews: Blend Spices, Yoshi’s New Island, F This Test, Angry Birds Epic

Here’s my Metro News Reviews for the week of Mar. 24th

F This Test

By Richard Benson

iBooks/Kindle/Kobo

Three Stars

If you can’t give your teacher the right answer, at least make them laugh. This collection of High School howlers compiled by Summersdale Publishers (under the pseudonym Richard Benson) captures the feel of a school workbook with doodles, lined paper, and hand-written, wisecracking answers. Most are silly, some are hilarious, and there’s a few math equations that are downright clever.

Yoshi’s New Island

Nintendo 3DS

Rated: Everyone

3 Stars

With a nursery motif and a kindergarten soundtrack, this latest Yoshi outing is likely to be too sickly sweet for fans used to a Nintendo capable of appealing to both young and old alike. Baby Mario is out to save Baby Luigi from aback a tribe of Yoshis through a cuddly-soft adventure so filled with the basics it should be called “My First Mario”. Giant, destructive eggs and vehicles you steer by physically tilting the DS offer some innovation, but not enough to keep the game fresh for experienced fans.
