    A Machine For Pigs may not appease fans of The Dark Descent, but it does offer a compelling entry into the genre, even if it's inferior to its predecessor.

    For some quick bouts on the go, Real Boxing does an admirable job of capturing the sport and presenting it to the player in an accessible and satisfying way.

    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.

    While not perfect, or particularly next-gen beautiful, Tiny Brains does offer up some intellectually stimulating puzzles. The addition of co-op definitely makes it a solid purchase.

    Stupid fun, though not particularly groundbreaking. It will certainly entertain those in need of a quick gaming fix, but won’t replace Diablo in your library any time soon.

    The lengths to which Burial at Sea: Episode 2 goes to distance its gameplay from BioShock Infinite's blueprint is outmatched by the indulgent spectacle of its writhing narrative - a risk not fully conscious of its consequences. Through success, failure, and to simply admire the sunset of a generation, the conclusion of Burial at Sea remains a worthwhile experience.

    Daylight is gold when it comes to scares, but is merely sterling silver in the gameplay substance department. The price might be worth the risk, though.

    A heart of gold surrounded by endless color makes it all easier to swallow, but you're left wondering what could have been had The Last Tinker's gameplay come on as strong as its presentation.

    One Piece fans will appreciate it, but newbies might want to give it a rent before jumping at it.

    Surgeon Simulator Anniversary Edition is still giant dripping bucket of stupid fun - and most of the new content is great - but absent is the howling laughter and pure novelty from its debut.

    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.

    Overall, the multiplayer takes center stage here and what's left is a mediocre campaign at best. My recommendation is a weekend rental -- get through the campaign in a sitting or two and then spend several hours with multiplayer to see if this one is worth your gaming dollar.

    Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter is a successful sequel to the original game.

    It's a little pricey to recommend for purchase at face value but either a used copy or a drop in price might warrant a purchase (especially for fans of the series).

    Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers is really a Final Fantasy game in name and setting only. It features almost no role-playing elements and focuses much more heavily instead on exploration and adventure.

    Perhaps the worst thing I can say about Obscure: The Aftermath is that it's entirely average.

    With Logitech's new flight sticks coming out and the fast and furious pace that the game goes, the next version of it could be an even sweeter flight to take-off with. Until then, try before you buy.

    In conclusion, NHL 2K10 is a big improvement from 2K9. 2K is still well behind EA at this point in generating an all around deep sim, but next year I'm hoping for a much closer matchup.

    Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 does its best to continue the pattern of marginal advancement in Activision’s line of superhero brawler/RPG titles, but as much as it improves in the process, it fails elsewhere.

    Academy of Champions Soccer is a cute $30 package that doesn’t seek to redefine the world of casual sports games, but which is a perfectly sufficient distraction in the hands of the right individual.

    I've had more fun with Strikeforce on the PS3 than I've ever had with the Dynasty Warriors franchise. To me, the series was stale until now, and while not without its problems, Strikeforce moves Dynasty Warriors back into the realm of relevance.

    Blacklight: Tango Down is a good value for anyone who enjoys competing in heated FPS battles online.

    King's Bounty: Crossworlds is the best version of the recent revival to the 20 year old strategy game. While it does provide a good amount of gameplay additions to the picture, the lack of a new lengthy campaign makes the game hard to replay for those who've already experienced Armored Princess.

    Super Mario All-Stars is precisely the same game you played on your SNES seventeen years ago-graphics, soundtrack, copyright and all. While these classic games haven't lost any of their appeal, this still feels an awful lot like an overpriced Virtual Console title.

    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 like the genre, it's easy to recommend Microbot despite some of its flaws. I found it more enjoyable with the offline co-op mode, too.

    While not perfect and not compelling in some areas, Star Wars: Trench Run brings the goods like no other iPhone app does. It's fun, it's quick and it's cheap.

    Knights Contract should have been a better game, but several poor design choices really hurt the experience. Still, I found it rewarding enough to continue on and discovered that underneath some of the glaring issues, there is a solid game to be found.

    Dragon Age II felt unfinished. Bioware gave too many restrictions with the adventure in terms of where you can go and where the story might take you. They also unnecessarily changed things up in the inventory system which didn't help the overall experience at all. The game still feels fun, but it's a lot more tedious/frustrating than the original.

    Patapon 3's whimsical surface seems inviting and opportunistic, but its heart remains confidently wrapped in its own minutia. With its charm spent on the previous two entries, the third is like the pizza with too many weird toppings. Patapon 3 is not quite a success, but in an age when difficulty and intricacy are often exchanged for accessibility I can certainly appreciate its mission (from afar, anyway).
