    I really want to like Castlevania, but I can’t. Konami made a truly complete quest by throwing in a very long section leading up to the Castle, but ultimately it becomes boring. Once you actually get into some of the architecture, the bad camera angles and less than perfect collision detection makes the game an exercise in frustration most of the time.

    It is fun, educational and entertaining. Yes, there are some flaws, but they are not serious enough to fail this game.

    Rather, everything does, and for that, Bloober deserves congratulations — more in the form of a subtle nod than a hearty pat on the back, mind you, but still: this is infinitely better than Basement Crawl ever was, and even if it's still not a must-own for your PS4, you won't find yourself wishing that Brawl had never even been created.

    It's not a great game, and it has some issues, but it gets enough right about the genre that fans shouldn't pass it over.

    Once you have a few upgrades earned, the game becomes fun in quite a hurry.

    In the end, Rogue Trooper is a technically solid game. It's intuitive, looks and plays great…but it's really not all that compelling.

    It's entertaining enough, even for those who aren't major followers of the show, but despite all it has going for it, the short length and repetitive gameplay keep Fullmetal Alchemist 2 from being anything more noteworthy than a weekend rental.

    What is the most disappointing in 20-04 is the lack of real additions. Sure a fun HR derby was added, as well as a custom replay option, but what else? Oh yeah, a create-a-team! If that's what you want to call it.

    There is enough to please everyone, but don't expect to be wowed by anything new or revolutionary, yet it still doesn't take away from the fact this is a solid racing game.

    The biggest omission from Mario Party 8, and the one that kept it from achieving an even higher score, is online play.

    It’s a fun title that boils down to good old-fashioned board game fun that just happens to be on a DVD.

    It has all the charm and addictive qualities of its Sega-based brethren, with better graphics and more features, to boot.

    Either shooter fans will hate the overworld exploration levels that the RPG segments offer, or the RPG fans will hate the difficult shooting elements, but it wouldn't hurt either gamer to step out of their element for once and try something new.

    Overall this isn't the best Ace Combat experience, but it's a passable bit of portable fun.

    Is it a deep, engaging experience? No, of course not. But on the flip side, Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo features giant robot battles. What more do you need?

    It's easily the best AI experience you'll find in a console poker title, so if you're dying to pick one up, definitely go with this one.

    One of the most fantastic things about the multiplayer mode is the complete absence of any slowdown, even when things are getting insanely wild with all four players and the military mixing it up on the screen.

    It is a bit on the short side, but the upside is a fantastic plot that has numerous side stories to it that cannot all be experienced in a single play.

    If you want to play an RPG that doesn’t pretend to be a dramatic tale or one that won’t require a lot of your time, Okage is a good choice.

    Some of the gameplay feels a bit archaic, and there's some unneeded filler here and there, but those looking for a quality portable platforming action title should be satisfied with Jak & Daxter's latest adventure.

    The story has to be taken with a healthy helping of salt; it's unintentionally tongue and cheek. You could skip the cinematics and be no worse off - something I've never recommended before.

    In strict gameplay terms, save for the multiple character options, Street Fighter EX 3 doesn't represent anything we haven't seen before.

    Even with the development delay and push into 2015, The Order: 1886 isn't exactly the action-packed, cinematic masterpiece we were hoping for. On the bright side, it's a mostly enjoyable ride while it lasts and is most certainly one of the best looking console games released thus far, so it’s worth a playthrough during the winter game release lull.

    Aladdin isn't breaking any new video game ground, but it's a fun, colorful experience, even though it's several years old.

    I managed to have quite a it of fun with Ms. Splosion Man, despite her pushing me away and at times downright annoying me.

    That doesn't mean the online play is perfect. In fact, many people have reported matchmaking issues and assorted glitches. Matchmaking shouldn't be a problem when playing with friends via invites (on either PSN or XBL), but when playing random players it's a mixed bag.

    Start The Party! is a bright, colorful and well animated game. The visual style is a little on the wacky side, and there's plenty of comical voiceovers and sound effects all throughout.

    While Zen Studios' ambition may be misplaced in what CastleStorm is, it's a welcome quality in delivering this "complete" version of their original game.

    A mixed bag—platforming and presentation are exceptional, making for one of the better games I’ve played on the DS. On the other hand, the combat and length detract so much from the overall package.

    All in all, I think Urban Trial Freestyle is worth a look. It won’t top something like Trials HD, but if you keep your expectations in check you’ll have some fun with it.
