    All of which is to say: I may not have enjoyed MotoGP 14 all that much, but I'd still recommend it to racing fans who know what they're doing. You'll probably need a high tolerance for failure, but if you can get over that, you'll find more than enough here to occupy your time.

    For the most part it is a hidden gem, and shows a lot of care put into the inside game jokes and attention to detail in the story.

    While Omega Five runs at a more deliberate or slower pace than some frantic shooters, that doesn’t mean for a second this game won’t kick your ass in short order.

    Mechanically it could be a better game, sure, but it’s still definitely a game worth playing.

    I definitely think Conduit's worth checking out if you're a Wii owner, it's easily the best FPS on the system, and the multiplayer is handled quite well. I'm a bit hesitant to suggest it if you're only going to play the campaign, as I don't think it's particularly strong or interesting, but even then it's worth a rental.

    What pleasantly surprised me about Hudson Soft's effort is its sense of difficulty. It doesn't wimp out on making the player work through a stage several times before picking up on the timing of the jumps, what order to kill the enemies and the like.

    It's a mix of Battlebots and Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots, with guns. The only thing dragging it down is the monotony in the later levels where the fighting starts to feel a bit old and the personality starts to wear off.

    Basically, I really enjoyed Midnight Club LA, but I was hardly amazed by it. It's a really solid arcade style racer with a lot of flashy stuff going for it, but it doesn't really do anything new or exciting, and it's not going to be the game to replace a couple other high profile racing titles on the 360 or PS3.

    NCAA March Madness 08 has a few flaws such as some transitions of animations, easy fast break opportunities, and a few game play quirks, but nothing will distract any college fan from getting excited about the team they love.

    Games like Feel the Magic: XY/XX won't be played a year from now, but for the moment, it's a fantastic poster child for everything the Nintendo DS hardware is supposed to be about.

    Much like an old arcade title, most of the appeal relies wholly upon how much a player puts into it, the dearth of new content not necessarily a deal-breaker. Still, the small number of stages limits the game's overall appeal, meaning only the dedicated will find long-term enjoyment.

    Oh, and if you're intent on trying ibb & obb as a single-player game, you can do so…but be forewarned that it ups the difficulty from "slightly difficult, and occasionally very challenging" to "insanely, brutally hard".

    Veterans can complete this in one sitting of 4-8 hours if so inclined. Even with all the monotonous backtracking and escort missions, the game is far too short. The downside is comparable to seeing a great horror flick that is only 80 minutes long.

    Brings a solid multiplayer experience to the Playstation 3 with multiple modes to choose from, and it's worth checking out even if you find yourself currently immersed in "Warhawk" or "Resistance."

    It's not a title that I can see myself coming back to over and over again. Its appeal feels a little limited, and it's reliance on cheesy pop music for certain events did start to annoy me pretty quick.

    Definitely an improvement over Smackdown vs. Raw 2011. I think a little more of a shake-up in the modes used for this game would have been great, but I'll take the improved animation and controls that this year's entry offers up.

    How Puddle remains as a game for you will depend on your skills and also your ability to work with physics and the elements. If you feel you have a very strong grasp on them, then this game is right up your physics alley. Otherwise, the complexity, Big Bang Theory elemental wit, and strict learning curve may act as a deterrent to many puzzle novices. I for one donate this game to science, as I'm a better gamer than number cruncher…well played nerds…well played.

    What makes this style of Yu-Gi-Oh so compelling is the fact that you finally have some story and purpose that best follows the popular anime TV series.

    The game is a bit on the short side, but for $14.99 I think it’s a great value, even if you don’t watch the show. The time mechanics alone make for some enjoyable platforming and I wish other developers would visit it more often.

    Still, while Battle Fantasia's mechanics seem to work well enough, it's also a little barebones for today's fighting market.

    It's no Heavy Rain, but for a game that intended to be loaded with atmosphere and digitize what playing a novel might be like, it delivers on all fronts.

    It doesn’t make a lot of significant changes to Far Cry 3, outside of streamlining some of the light RPG concepts in favor of something even more action-oriented. And it does a really great job of capturing that kitschy, hyper-stylized wave of 80’s nostalgia that few manage to get outside of the recent Hotline Miami.

    So while this first episode is a bit light on the adventure game tropes you might be familiar with, and certainly doesn't require much head scratching in the puzzle department, I think it still serves as an entertaining introduction to what could possibly be Telltale's best work yet.

    If you go into this expecting a light hearted, breezy romp through the Mushroom Kingdom, you'll definitely have some fun with it. But the more hardcore player out there might find themselves a bit put-off by the overall ease and lack of challenge, so here's to hoping that New Super Mario Bros. Wii U can strike a better balance between fun and difficulty than NSMB 2 managed to do.

    Basically, if you want a portable DW experience, Warriors Orochi 2 is the way to go. It's the best version of the series on the PSP so far, and you can tell that KOEI is getting better and better at porting the console experience over mostly intact, so it's absolutely worth buying for fans.

    The atmosphere that this game creates with its dialog, character interactions, and its intriguing story set in the real life city of London is completely amazing.

    My affair with the Tomb Raider trilogy is one I am disappointingly glad to be done with, and I'm sure my individual scores will baffle fans of the games.

    Create your Mii and challenge your friends (both gaming and non-gaming) to a game of bowling. I guarantee they’ll be hooked and so will you.

    Getting Treasures of Montezuma: Arena will cost you only a little space on your memory card, and in return you'll get literally hours and hours of addictive gameplay. All things considered, that's well worth it.
