3DS EU launch: All hardware, software reviews rounded-up

Tonight marks the official launch of Nintendo 3DS in Europe, with thousands of stores opening across the UK, Ireland and Europe to sell the machine at midnight. We've put together this round-up of reviews of some of the launch games and hardware to help you pick what games to get.

It isn't an exhaustive list of reviews, nor does it feature every launch game - with the US launch of 3DS not until Sunday and no embargos in place, more reviews of more games, particularly third party ones, should start to show up this weekend. We'll do our best to keep this updated.

See the reviews for yourself below, and be sure to drop any new ones you've found in the comments so we can add them in.


Super Street Fighter IV:

PilotWings Resort

Nintendogs + Cats

Ridge Racer 3D

Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D

Steel Diver (US Only at Launch)

Madden NFL Football

Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars

The Sims 3
