I Love my 3DS. It has an excellent library of games, downloadable content, Netflix, StreetPass and more. I have spent several hours saving Hyrule, racing Karts, finding the Princess, taking on the Underworld forces… The list could go on and on. One game though, has been on my 3DS since Day One yet I have not played since the day I turned my system on… Face Raiders.
Seriously, does anyone still play this game?
With so many great games available its easy to overlook this this title. It is a simple and clever little piece of software that makes good use of the the features and really shows off what the handheld can do. But honestly, who is going to sit down for a intense session of Face Raiders when games like Mario Kart & Kid Icarus exists? And how many of you have tried to convince your friends to buy a 3DS with Face Raiders? Even the AR Games app gets more attention than Face Raiders. I would imagine very few people are persuaded after pelting their friends face with yellow balls to go buy a 3DS of their own. I’m not saying that Face Raiders is a bad game. In fact, after picking it back up to play it for this article I have to say that it is very enjoyable. I’m just saying that it can and is overlooked. It’s filler… something to do until you get your first actual 3DS title.
Am I wrong? Are there devout Face Raider Fans out there? What are your thoughts?
