    Ignoring the distraction of sophomoric dialogue and the game's less-than-enjoyable combat, there is value in this journey for the right sort of player, thanks to an interesting, well-paced plot and strong character development.

    : It has some redeemable qualities, but it's too repetitive and boring to offer any kind of real action experience.

    Pokemon Black/White does a terrific job of blending the old, tried-and-true gameplay systems of yesteryear with updated graphics, a mature story, and new features that bring Pokemon into 2011.

    A solid little beat-em-up that is definitely worth having around on your iOS-powered mobile device. It has its share of niggling issues, but still offers good entertainment value, especially for nostalgic gaming veterans.

    Homefront is a solid, if uneven, experience that features an excellent multiplayer mode, with a very average single-player campaign attached.

    Knights Contract can be enjoyable at times, but once players get into the thick of play, the questionable AI, level design, combat mechanics, and even visuals will make it more difficult to feel comfortable with.

    Severed places an ungainly weight on the shoulders of dismemberment combat for this extension of Dead Space: Extraction's fiction, creating a dichotomy as uncomfortable as traipsing backwards through already tired levels.

    A solid dual-stick shooter, but it does have a few annoying flaws that keep it from being great. The plot is interesting, but poorly executed. Thankfully the lengthy solo campaign, co-op missions, and Survival Mode make it worth the price of entry.

    The best Dawn of War II expansion and an excellent value. For $30, you get a solid campaign, tons of multiplayer maps, and the so-much-fun-it-should-be-illegal Last Stand mode, all wrapped up in a beautiful package.

    Despite an engaging leveling system and a wonderful soundtrack, the majority of the game feels too dated, cliche, and subpar to be enjoyable, overall.

    There's no doubt that Bulletstorm delivers a solid ten hours of fresh, bloody fun, but any more time spent with Grayson and crew seems a confused antithesis of modern first-person shooters.

    De Blob 2 is a lot of fun to play, but its ease makes it a bit dull at times. It's too easy, but that also makes it a colorful, relaxing experience that you will likely want to see through to the end.

    Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together is an excellent game, bringing turn-based strategy RPGs back to the forefront where they belong. RPG and strategy fans alike will be hooked on this for days.

    De Blob 2 can feel a bit simplistic at times, but it's still an incredibly rewarding and fun game with a great style. I just wish it were a little more complicated.

    Rather than leaving players blasting away indiscriminately, the game introduces more complex and engaging design based around its excellent fluid dynamics, inviting us to invest greater mental energy into our play.

    The game looks great and has phenomenal presentation, but the actual meat of the experience is lacking, overall. Multiplayer, co-op, Move support, and bot options earn back what's lost in single-player.

    MvC3 is the same crazy, over-the-top fighting game that fans loved back in 2000, just with a fresh control scheme and a new coat of 3D, hi-res paint. Fighting game fans will fall in love with the "easy to play, hard to master" format.

    Two Worlds 2 just takes too long and requires too much punishment on the part of the player to be an overall enjoyable experience, despite a few fleeting instances of charm.

    It's not Monster Hunter, but it's desperately trying to be. If you like RPGs will little story, even less of a battle system and an endless amount of missions, this one's for you.
