    If you loved Geometry Wars and you’ve got three buddies looking for some couch gaming action then you might want to consider In Space We Brawl, however, in my opinion, you’ll have more fun simply going back and playing Geometry Wars.

    The great presentation is undone by a number of questionable gameplay decisions.

    Umbrella Corps has no clue what it wants to be, and that translates into a frustrating, confounding experience. Tiny maps, wildly unbalanced gameplay and a general lack of polish and focus makes this one Resident Evil entry that you’re better off avoiding.

    Give this one a rental if your curious, otherwise, stay away.

    I didn’t think it was possible but the Resident Evil games have gotten as loud, dumb and tiresome as the Resident Evil movies. Overcomplicated mechanics, a confusing, schizophrenic campaign split four ways and a ridiculous plot that doesn’t just break suspension of disbelief but blends it into a smoothie make Resident Evil 6 a real chore to get through.

    Razor's Edge attempts to fix Ninja Gaiden 3. In some ways it succeeds, offering an experience with more modes and levels. But even with all of these changes, Ryu Hayabusa's newest adventure is hard to recommend. Ninja Gaiden 3 looks good, but is derailed with uneven difficulty and gameplay that is too fast for its own good!

    The re-imagined and return of SimCity is a disappointment that's a direct result of the included always-online system. Even worse, the gameplay suffers from multiple issues including reduced map sizes to seemingly-unintelligent Sims. Individuals looking to purchase SimCity should wait until the online restrictions have been lessened and gameplay issues fixed.

    This was probably the most heartbreaking game I ever had to review because I know this game went through so much developmental hell to get released and it really does feel like they tried, but sadly, the end product is just too broken to recommend.

    Slender: The Arrival is more frustrating than scary. The atmospheric locations are wasted in this boring survival-horror game where players do little more than search around for numbered items. The game goes a long way to flesh out the story and mythology, but it never makes a convincing argument for why Slender deserves to be a franchise.

    Atomic Ninjas had the potential to be a fun brawler for four friends, but falls flat due to problematic controls and wonky physics.

    Firefall showed some real promise as I started on my epic journey. The shooting was fine, and the missions were fun at first, but then after doing almost the same thing over and over again, I just couldn't find any reason to continue. Like I said, I am willing to go back and see if the game improves in the future but I wont be returning to Firefall anytime soon.

    There are a few memorable moments sprinkled throughout this adventure, but this newest LEGO game covers too much familiar ground.

    Forgettable characters with a lackluster storyline do not help a puzzle game that can be, at times, enjoyable and, at worst, downright infuriating.

    F1 2014 is everything people hate about annualized sports games. Not just a carbon copy of the 2013 model, but also a game that fails to capitalize on some of the biggest changes the sport has ever seen. Worst of all, many of the franchise's best features have been removed. It's clear this was an afterthought as the developers worked on the truth next-generation sequel.

    Escape Plan has come to the PlayStation 4, but it fails to make the transition cleanly. The puzzles are dull and the controls are ill fitted to the new system. I wouldn't recommend playing Escape Plan, but if you absolutely must make sure it's the Vita version.

    Woolfe - The Red Hood Diaries is a severely short game that doesn't provide either interesting or entertaining gameplay. With better platformer and action games available to players, this lackluster video game adaptation of the Red Riding Hood fairy tale should be avoided until it's either improved or expanded upon.

    It seems odd that Electronic Arts decided to take out most of the fun elements of the game and replace them with additions that are barely worth talking about.

    X-Men: the Official Game for DS is the same licensing travesty we’ve seen so many times before.

    Although it runs at a budget price, I can’t recommend a purchase, even for fans of the show. A quick rent might suffice, but this game won’t keep you entertained very long.

    I’d be able to overlook the weak plot and acting if there were a decent game in there to back it up. However, due to frustrating game mechanics and tedious play, I’m not able to drum up any enthusiasm over this title.

    After experiencing this dogged title that comes late in the PS2 life cycle it’s impossible to recommend it, if you are really fiending for any kind of brawler or beat-em-up then pass on Eragon and just pick up "God of War" or wait for its sequel to come out.

    Battle of the Bands takes the best elements of some recent hits and tries to combine them into something new and fun. Unfortunately, it misses the mark.

    FIFA Street is the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of gaming. Equal parts glorious and monstrous, it will leave you ultimately disappointed, if not completely filled with rage. Maybe Icarus is a better metaphor. It flies so close to greatness but invariably crashes and burns. Either way, play FIFA Street at your own risk.

    Naughty Bear works as a crazy idea, but not as a full-priced video game.

    Amusing for a short period of time, the Asskickers will ultimately wear out its welcome in your gaming agenda in just a few hours or plays. It's a fun reminder of what the beat'em up genre has to offer, but will unfortunately remind of what is wrong with it as well. Die hard beat'em up fans only need apply... and even they won't be entertained for long.

    Inversion is yet another derivative third-person shooter with a gimmick. This time around you control gravity in the most limited way possible. Although there are plenty of strong moments, the game is ultimately brought back down to earth with the never ending cinemas, repeating bosses, ugly graphics and frustrating level designs!

    Rife with technical issues and a clunky user interface, Elemental: War of Magic is not yet the game I hoped it could be.

    The depth of content and similarities to past space titles may be tempting, but even its dazzling display of stars and planets can't make up for the lack of worthwhile gameplay.

    This is an end-of-life expansion for the HOI3 franchise. It adds some (minor) new features to the original, but does not do much to fix any major flaws. It is not worth 20 bucks to anybody but an HOI3 completist.
