    Gran Turismo is fun to take out for a test drive, but for the long haul it lacks the depth that players have come to expect.

    All in all, Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is a good game, but a great art direction, narrative, and fantastic soundtrack can only go so far to counterbalance a short campaign with average gameplay.

    Silly slapstick mechanics and shenanigans aside, The Saboteur is a capable contender for this year’s fourth quarter brawl. Pandemic's last will be a sleeper hit, but hopefully enough will wake up and take notice of an impressive swan song.

    Skyrim: Dawnguard will not blow your mind, but it's a decent addition to the Skyrim franchise, so long as you're willing to buy into the vampiric premise. There's a number of lore-rich encounters that long time TES fans will love, and a number of extras that help pad the package.

    I'm thankful to this game, because it intrigued me enough to check out the excellent movie and the even more excellent graphic novels. It opened my eyes to the works of artist Paul Robertson and the band Anamanaguchi. It's just a damn shame that the game is nothing special.

    Pandora’s Tower may not be remembered as fondly as other games in the Wii’s lineup, and it feels a bit dated right out of the gate, but I couldn’t think of a better third party sendoff for the Wii.

    Bethesda really put a lot of care into The Pitt. The excellent setup, twist, unique art direction, and chilling atmosphere are all aspects of a great piece of DLC that simply shouldn’t be missed, despite the pack’s short length.

    Dante's Inferno is undoubtedly just another action game that doesn't stand out among its peers. While short, every minute of it is enjoyable and challenging, and it succeeds in being a quality addition to the long list of western style action games.

    Straying from the mold, Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans is a solid adaptation of the high flying, explosive action for the RPG genre. While it's not a perfect game by any means, it's quite possibly the best Dragon Ball Z game to date.

    At its surface, Crimson Alliance is a bit shallow. But if you take advantage of the tools provided, tweak the difficulty at times, and play with a group of friends, the depth starts to show. It won't deliver in areas that other action RPG games do, but there is no denying this title is an absolute blast to play.

    Majesty 2 succeeds in delivering a new kind of RTS experience. The removal of direct control promotes new tactics, especially in multiplayer, and provides a different way to progress through yet another RTS campaign.

    Considering its lackluster visuals, Mount and Blade is suprisingly addictive. The combination of exhilarating mounted combat and an open sandbox world will keep players coming back for more.

    Resonance of Fate is ambitious and has an exciting combat system, but you’ll need to immerse yourself in the game for a long time to master the steep learning and difficulty curves.

    This is a remarkable example of a series reboot, which remains faithful to the source material while making changes that increased its enjoyment tenfold. I recommend this game to anyone who has ever enjoyed a platformer in their life.

    Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games brings with it a good amount of events, most of which are done better in other games. This is one of the many Wii titles where enjoyment depends entirely on how it will be played in the household.

    Though you could obtain a more polished experience, you'll be hardpressed to find an RPG that offers the same innovative direction. If it weren't for minor glitches and some finicky controls, Divinity II: Ego Draconis could easily sit amongst some of the genre's greatest.

    All in all, Dead Island doesn't do anything new as far as the first person RPG is concerned. If you've played Borderlands or Fallout, you have seen it before. This is not to say that there's anything wrong. It's still vastly immersive, just not essentially unique gameplay wise.
    • 71 Metascore

    The gameplay will really make you ponder your next set of moves, but it is very challenging and probably only appeal to the most fervent of strategy fans.

    All in all, Street Fighter X Mega Man is a noble effort. Although a number of levels could use a lot of tweaks, and it feels unpolished at times, you really can't go wrong with playing it, as it has a ton of heart. I wouldn't put it above the contemporary classic Mega Man 9, but it's a much more solid effort than the soulless Mega Man 10.

    Although hardcore professional players may scoff at the general lack of skill in public games, most of you will enjoy the experience, and the fact that the developers were able to actually create a solid MOBA experience on a console should be commended.

    If you've ever liked a text adventure in your life, I recommend Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice For All. However, I can't wholeheartedly say it's worth getting again if you already have it on the DS.

    4 Heroes of Light is a JRPG fix. It looks alright and it plays alright and the baggage it carries is something you can either get past or despise depending on your attitude towards JRPGs.

    This short lived DLC, while fun, is just not enough to warrant a purchase for those looking to play it standalone. However, if you will be playing this DLC during a playthrough of the game itself, it may be worth it.

    In the end, Lollipop Chainsaw is above all else a fun game. It has some issues (like most action games), but it's a non-stop outlandish joyride from start to finish. Thankfully, there's a ton of content packed in, and completionists will probably need 15-20 hours to obtain absolutely everything (rankings included) .

    At the end of the day, Alice: MR has a lot of good ideas from a lot of other good games, but never really executes them as well as the originals did. Unless you're a hardcore fan of the original, or a dedicated platforming junkie, you'll want to skip this return to wonderland.

    Over the course of the DLC, you'll shoot a couple of looters, decipher some puzzles, closely look over photographic evidence, and engage in a few chase scenes: add in a healthy amount of investigatory work and a large shootout, and you have a pretty diverse gameplay array.

    Ultimately, while Dead Money is a pretty fun affair, it doesn't really have the "wow" factor a few of the DLC packs did in Fallout 3. While the three hours it took to complete is on the longer side for downloadable content, I'm not really sure Dead Money is worth the full $10 asking price.

    If BloodRayne: Betrayal works at all it's in starts and stops. Honing in on one thing at a time, like the animation, one can arguably find areas that are enjoyable. A platforming section here or there may be fun to play through once. The part where Rayne runs the gauntlet of enemies just before the castle crumbles under her feet can provide hack and slash relief with excessive (in a good way) blood and dismemberment. Put it all together, however, any fun to be had gets lost in a vortex of suck.

    The entire experience of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams doesn’t come together in a cohesive whole often enough for it to be considered one of the great platformers, or even a really good one.

    Unless you're looking to get more mileage out of the "end" of the Mass Effect franchise (for now), I wouldn't recommend picking up Infiltrator for its current price.

    Deadlight, on the other hand, has an entire one third of the game that feels like it could have been utterly discarded.

    Overall, you can't really expect a whole lot from Kill Team in terms of diversity – at it's core, it's a hack and slash/twin stick shooter with slight RPG elements.

    Where RE6 truly shines is in the game mechanics and ancillary modes. Mercs is back and better than ever. When married with all of the new mechanics (quick-shotting, rolling, aiming while laying down, and more), Mercs becomes a much more action oriented experience, which enhances the enjoyment of it tenfold.
