    Fossil Fighters: Champions certainly succeeds at mimicking Pokémon while still creating its own brand and style of gameplay. However, the biggest fault of the game is not in the new material but that it doesn't succeed in pulling off the areas that are similar to Pokémon such as creating endearing creatures and appealing to a wide variety of gamers.

    Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable is the equivalent of a gun safety demonstration where the instructor accidentally shoots off a finger; it's still a lot of fun, often in spite of itself. For better or worse fans of the original cult classic will find their game 100% intact, but with minimal upgrades and an insane price tag it's tough to recommend to any audience.

    Dead Money isn't perfect, but neither was New Vegas. There are some interesting survival horror elements of Dead Money that will make you tense, and enough fun to make you come back for more. This DLC is certainly a solid edition to the Fallout world.

    Bottomline, it's still a good game, but it isn't quite great.

    It can be disappointing, but it's easier to view Lost in Shadow is an earnest effort with few great ideas rather than a fabrication forged of influence and familiarity.

    If you’ve really got to have your Family Feud, consider instead the PC version of the game, which retails for half the price.

    Neverending Nightmares revels in tension and survives through conservation of its primal resource. Unfolding it exposes a weird paradox; a game that actively campaigns against a traditional desire to play it, and yet seeks to capture attention all the same.

    Labyrinth Legends' ambition doesn't go far beyond its modest plot line. Save the princess, bash some bad guys, and solve a few puzzles along the way. It's disposable, sure, but that doesn't stop Labyrinth Legends from being enjoyable while it lasts.

    With the Rapture's cameo at the end of Infinite, it wasn’t clear how Irrational could make the same trick work twice. The answer is simple; the return Rapture in Burial at Sea isn't a trick. It's a venue to express an original idea inside stylish and increasingly sophisticated framework. In that regard Burial at Sea gives its all the narrative - and unfortunately comes up short when it wants to be a game.

    Fortune Street is a good board game in terms of premise but as a videogame, it suffers in many areas that we would expect would be enhanced by being a virtual experience.

    Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon pays homage to days spent in smoky arcades with friends, pumping quarter after quarter into a fruitless gaming machine. It's a simple game that is stupid fun.

    For 20 bucks, I think it’s a bit much to ask to be playing the same game again, this time on steam with achievements.

    Hardcore Skylanders fans will want to take a serious look at the unique differences, both good and bad, that the 3DS version of SWAP Force offers. If your interest in SWAP Force is more casual, and you don't have the need to play on the go, it's nigh impossible to recommend picking up the 3DS version over the console one.

    A competent JRPG with some considerable flaws, and one that is best enjoyed by those who are familiar with SAO.

    Survival horror hit a wall, and Maiden of Black Water isn't the one to overcome it.

    Metal Slug XX is a textbook entry to the series. The familiar terrain is nice, but it may leave some unsatisfied.

    The story is unique but a little slow for a major portion of the game. And, though the game does last for around 20 hours, there is nothing more than the main game to keep you playing.

    As the "thinking man's" action FPS, the AI and presentation fail it. I will commend Codemaster's for trying to mesh aspects of more tactical shooters with easier "pick up and play" accessible gameplay. But some points of this title just can't be ignored, like terrible friendly AI and basic animation omissions. The experience is much better online when you no longer have to babysit your CPU controlled teammates. And although the Fireteam Engagements can be really fun, it's hard to suggest buying this game at $60 to play four "side missions."

    Overall, I really enjoyed the experience in NERF: N-Strike Elite. The game is fun while it lasts and the separate dart gun works well at pestering your friends, co-workers, significant others, pets, siblings, etc.

    For the mahjong player on the go, Mahjong Cub3d may be an enticing pickup, but if you've already decided you aren't a fan of mahjong, Cub3d won't change your state of mind.

    Although there are some drawbacks to the game Digimon World Next Order is actually an engaging and fun game. If your a fan of the Digimon series and enjoy raising and evolving your Digimon then this game will be perfect for you. The idea of allowing the player two different Digimon at the same time was a good decision. The building and collecting is also very fun in this game. It’s worth a look if your a RPG fan.

    Dynasty Warriors Next is a solid entry into the series that combines the gameplay of a typical Dynasty Warriors experience with the exclusive controls and features the Vita hardware offers. If you enjoy the series, there's a lot to like about Next.

    Drawing inspiration from a satirical appreciation of the Cold War, it's fair for CounterSpy to teeter on the edge of principled oblivion. Finding value in its eccentricity, however, controls whether you can hang on or fall off.

    FATED: The Silent Oath is short and I didn't get invested in the story or characters, but I found it enjoyable and hope to see Frima expand upon it. [Tested with Rift]

    Boring and repetitive combat, excessive and misdirected objectives, and a relentlessly depressing theme encumber what is otherwise a triumph in moody, explorative gameplay.

    It's no surprise that the Vita release of Jak and Daxter Collection is noticeably inferior to its console counterpart. The problem is I'm referring to both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2 versions of each game. What the Jak and Daxter Collection gains in portability to loses in playability - a compromise that, even for games as objectively great as these three, is tough to reconcile.

    For all its positives, in the end, Smash Up is simply less and fewer in every way than Brawl. There are fewer levels (by half), fewer characters (by half), fewer collectible trophies (by an order of magnitude)… and the overall number of unlockables isn’t even in the same ballpark. It’s still a good game, and there’s no denying the appeal once you begin to perfect your technique, but comparison is inevitable under the circumstances.

    Among the Sleep puts the player behind the eyes of a two-year old and tasks them with surviving a series of wildly traumatizing scenarios. Careful hands and compassionate minds push Among the Sleep's delicate subject matter away from abject immorality, however, not with enough guidance to pivot an honest story into a capable game.

    WRC 6 may be the rally racer you’re looking for if you thought DiRT Rally was a bit too hardcore and you’re unsure what DiRT 4 will bring this June. That said, this isn’t a sport or series I’m familiar with or particularly enjoy, so it’s hard for me to give it a firm recommendation either way.

    DDR Hottest Party 3 is another solid entry into the long running DDR series.
