    I still enjoyed my time with the game though, and appreciate what it brings to the table story-wise. Whether any of the events featured here will make their way into the canon proper I'm not sure, but as a side story it's certainly an interesting tale. And once you spend a little more time with the combat you'll find a better experience than the first few hours let on. So yeah, if you're a big fan or even just a fan from the T.V. show with little interest in the books, I'd say you should eventually give this one a look.

    So while I think Painkiller Hell & Damnation is adequate in presentation and gameplay, it's really only suited for those that didn't play the previous releases. The silver lining is that it speaks highly about the endurance of the hold-down-the-fire-button-and-don't-let-go FPSs that started the genre… And hey, it's only $20.

    It's hard to be definitive with SEV2 because it does fall victim to its own unique premise and gameplay speciality. It's somewhat limited, but adding more whiz-bang and flashiness would only dilute its core sniping gameplay, which is exactly what makes it stand out from the crowd.

    If you can embrace the silliness — and, more importantly, overlook lots and lots and lots of glaring flaws — then you'll find that Mars: War Logs is, in it's own way, more fun than you could ever imagine.

    A credible first effort, but it’s not enough to knock off NBA Street from its throne, gambling options aside.

    I would say if you are a gigantic Hold'em fan and you need you poker itch scratched on the PS4 then consider Pure Hold'em. Otherwise I would pick up a cheaper card game compilation on PC/Mac or wait for a PlayStation Store sale. Either way only poker fans need inquire.

    The difficulty is there; the multiplayer is solid and does the series justice in many ways. I recommended it for the hack n slash, dungeon crawler fans. Lastly, if the four classes aren’t enough, for $4.99, you can purchase and unlock the Necromancer that summons ghosts and archers.

    Gamers who are into this genre will no doubt enjoy what Culdcept Saga offers, but with the game’s dated visuals, poor voice acting, so-so solo mode, and slightly broken online play, one can only recommend this for hardcore fans of this genre.

    Mega Man Legacy Collection is not the best compilation of classics released, but it’s definitely not the worst. Worth a download if you are a fan.

    Tao Feng, while light years better than "Kakuto Chojin," really ends up as a slightly generic, thoroughly average fighting experience.

    I definitely think it's worth checking out, via a demo first if possible, but outside of a really well realized look, and some great presentation, there isn't enough to the gameplay that will keep you coming back for more.

    Elemental Gearbolt sadly fails to satisfy in the gameplay stakes, which is really the most important aspect of the game. Certainly go for it if you like the presentation and so on, but the so-called innovation stops at the presentation and nothing is done to enhance the gameplay.

    The game feels like old-hat and the limited gameplay changes have the Tomb Raider series making a small leap in improvement.

    I’d love for every iteration of Assassin’s Creed to be great, as I genuinely enjoy the series. Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood, Black Flag…these are all fantastic games to me. But Unity doesn’t compare favorably at all to the better entries we’ve already seen.

    I get the impression that far too much effort was put into locking up a great soundtrack.

    Definitely try before you buy, if possible, and keep in mind that the game is only worth playing if you've got a few friends to go at it with you.

    Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault is perfectly serviceable, I guess, if that's all you're looking for, but if you want any more than that — say, if you want a game that really does have a neat new twist on the tower defense formula — it'll just end up disappointing you.

    While the game doesn’t do much in the way of gameplay, the presentation makes up for it.

    The problem with Under the Skin lies in the fact that no matter how far you advance in the game you’ll still be doing generally the same thing over and over. Once you’ve seen the different methods of freaking out the populace, that’s all there is to see.

    Sure Green Game: TimeSwapper looks nice — like Red Game, it makes the most of a two-tone color palette - but nice graphic design is no substitute for nice level design.

    With better racing games, like "Ridge Racer V," "Midnight Club," "Smuggler's Run" and "Moto GP," there isn't much need for an average off-road racer.

    The combination of 2003 graphics with 1995 mission design hurts Postal 2 in the long term. Something else that absolutely kills the game is the insane amount of loading that goes on.

    If you're absolutely, positively dying to play some type of action oriented title, and you're not feeling particularly picky about the story aspect or how engaged you'll get with the characters used, then Fracture will probably satisfy that itch for a short while.

    You'll see a lot of poor passes (regardless of your quarterback choice), poor tackling (even for a computer-controlled player), hot and cold A.I. and many, many wide open receivers dropping balls. This is probably the most frustrating aspect of NCAA 2k3.

    Building up a powerful gang from nothing under the watchful eye of the man sounds like fun, but the process in Beat Down is shallow and tiresome.

    Online play might have taken NBA Jam off the "rent for nostalgia" list and put it on the "must-have" list. As is, there are better basketball alternatives - several of them.

    The sound is pretty standard fare also. The checks and hockey sound effects are boilerplate, not that I’d expect anything else.

    The fighter is elementary and good for it’s young target audience, but not anyone else.

    X-2 comes off as a flashy expansion pack, and not the full fledged sequel promised. The mission-based approach will work for some, but to me, it comes off as a cheap excuse to skimp out on a proper narrative.

    It may not be perfect, but NBA 07 offers a respectful game of b-ball on the PSP.
