    Toukiden: Kiwami has an intricate and expansive system of armour, weapons, mitama and power-ups to keep the gameplay interesting. That said, I couldn’t help but feel that the amount of button mashing was excessive considering the detail put elsewhere.

    The replay value here is undeniable.

    Rise of the Triad can stand on its own legs if you take it for what it is, which is a throwback to an era of shooters long gone.

    Tachyon Project does enough things to make itself stand out against the bigger names in the genre and be competent, but falls short on doing much else to really rise above and beyond the kings of the category.

    If you purchased the game then by all means use the DLC code and get the add-on, otherwise the $7 price tag may be a bit much for the small offering. That being said, fans of the game most likely won't be disappointed.

    It certainly is a solid game – albeit a short one at 3 levels – with a more deliberate, rather than twitchy, pace that will appeal to a certain slice of the gamer spectrum. For others the boredom may set in very quickly.

    True to the series, Tales of Berseria relies heavily on its story telling and does as a good as job as any of its predecessors.

    Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure has an excellent single player campaign, but it lacks replay value.

    This mindless racer was enjoyable, fast-paced, and offered up exactly what I was looking for, and that is some cheap racing fun.

    In the end, I enjoyed my time with Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock. Anyone who has history playing these types of games will feel right at home – just don’t expect anything really new.

    With a clever combination of live action videos and computer graphics, the game makes you feel as if you do indeed have one foot in reality and the other in a dream. However, while its narrative is enjoyable, it doesn’t go beyond in bringing anything new or exceptional.

    Even with its shortcomings Vivid Games has done an admirable job of bringing a somewhat fairly authentic feel to a boxing game for the PS Vita. Sure, it has a few issues but it has enough going for it that most gamers and fans of the sport will like it.

    Here’s where Lienzo gets it right; they’re only selling Hunter’s Legacy for about five dollars. In my opinion, this is a steal. For pure entertainment value, you’re getting a lot.

    Beholder does an excellent job of making you feel hopeless. I was immediately infected by the game’s clouded atmosphere. I felt ready to do whatever it took to keep my household afloat. And while certain gameplay elements broke this spell, the game is worth playing. Even the most saintly players can find a little awful in themselves with Beholder.

    If you don’t mind a challenge and can deal with the level generation, this is a very fun and entertaining game. The concept is good, the execution just needs a bit of work.

    A decent enough game for the price, but once again it leaves me asking why.

    Controls are tight, there is some decent replay value, and it doesn’t take itself too seriously which makes for a pretty fun time.

    Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is a solid effort, bringing together such a great cast of characters from a number of different visual novels and gaming franchises; pitting them up against each other in an enjoyable arcade fighting style game.

    It doesn’t really bring anything else new to the table in the team deathmatch genre, but what it does bring, it does it well.

    If you are a Skyrim fan who has already invested countless number of hours into the main game, then Dawnguard is for you, but if you have moved on to other games, I am not so certain Dawnguard is reason alone to come back as frankly it is more of the same.

    I have to admit though, if you own these tables on your home console,you may want to question whether or not these are indeed worth the investment.

    A strong debut featuring a fun concept and great visuals so I look forward to what else Yanim has on the horizon.

    Is it perfect? Far from it, but the sheer level of chaos that comes from playing it made it fun overall. With great artwork, bonkers fighting styles and a lot of replay value (even if I didn’t understand one of the modes), it is a game that should at least be tried, just to have seen and played it.

    The game is priced to match the experience at just over $5. If you’re looking for a brief but genuinely tense experience in planes of existence beyond our own, give it a try.

    NBA Baller Beats is one of the more original experiences you are going to find on Xbox. The gameplay and the Kinect implementation are good but there are too many "ifs" that keep this from being a truly top notch, universal experience.

    I wanted to point out things that this game tries to do differently than most classic RTS games because honestly everything else felt very… classic. That isn’t to say the game was bad or should be overlooked, just that if you were hoping for a reinvented RTS you might want to keep looking.

    The artwork and style in Back To Bed is exceptional and fits everything together quite nicely. It’s sort of a mix of claymation and painting with a ton of surreal moments and settings.

    The extra content is neat, but given that most of it is only visual it’s difficult to justify the price point; however, beyond the layer of shiny aesthetics and ridiculous physics is a fun fighting game accessible to both casual and hardcore gamers. If you’re looking to get into the Dead Or Alive series, this would be a great place to start.

    Unfortunately for me at least, this is another example of coming close but still being oh so far away. This was a great opportunity Bethesda, and it seems you’ve gone with the safer route yet again.

    Although the gameplay is fun, what prevents this game from being better is that there is no end. You’re playing purely for high score.
