    Bomberman's newest Xbox Live Arcade game is hardly the revelation some were hoping for, but it's a solid multiplayer game nonetheless.

    A clever adventure puzzle game that reminds me of a simpler time in gaming. The guys at Double Fine do a great job in working with mechanics of yesteryear and make The Cave a compelling adventure from start to finish.

    A powerful narrative, imaginative puzzles, and strong presentation combine in Papo & Yo to result in one of this year's best gaming experiences. The emotional journey of Quico and Monster that comprises Papo & Yo leaves a long-lasting impression well after its conclusion.

    Coming from a series newbie, Yo-kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls/Bony Spirits is an enjoyable game, but there were a couple of things that surprised me. The mostly-automated battles confused me at first as I wasn’t expecting it, but I did get the hang of it over time. I just wish the user had more input during them other than healing and Soultimate moves, but other than that and the tedium of befriending Yo-kai, fans of the original game should enjoy the second outing as well.

    MX vs. ATV: Untamed is a solid performer and offers a broad experience in off-road racing. It's fun in both single- and multi-player and is definitely worth a look if you enjoy getting dirty.

    In summary, Cities in Motion looks to become a solid transportation sim in a colorful package. A comprehensive city model and a wide assortment of transport modes provide a wealth of choices to the aspiring city planner.

    Even with some questionable controls and outdated graphics, Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble feels like the River City Ransom sequel I've been waiting for.

    With only two buttons and 20-second rounds, DiveKick may sound too simple to be any fun. But that's where you're wrong. This is a game that will not only bring new fans to the genre, but also keep the hardcore fighting fans coming back for more. Throw in a memorable cast of characters and you have one of this year's best fighting games.

    Hyrule Warriors Legends is a pretty amazing achievement on the 3DS hardware, but that same hardware imposes some rather glaring limitations. It’s almost feature-complete compared to the Wii U game but a smaller screen and lower resolution hamper the overall experience.

    The name of the game pretty much spells out exactly what you can expect: LEGO Jurassic World. It is the traditional, Travelers’ Tale LEGO experience that is becoming all too familiar, set in a Jurassic Park setting. Nothing more. Nothing less.

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

    In the end, the kids will eat this one up. They'll come home from seeing the movie and play this game to death.

    Ronin is fun to play and its strengths more than overcome its weaknesses.

    The Legend of Kage 2 may not be the perfect 16-bit revival, but it's definitely worth checking out for those who love fast-paced ninja platforming action!

    Aerosmith is exactly what you think it is, a Guitar Hero game with way too much Aerosmith. If that's your cup of tea then you're probably going to get a kick out of this game, but everybody else should avoid this like the plague.

    Need for Speed Nitro has a lot of solid content, good production values and a large quantity of customization for a DS game.

    Excitebike: World Rally is a really good example of how to take a classic, simple game and bring it into the modern era.

    DuckTales Remastered looks great, but WayForward's tinkering has led to a disappointing remake. What used to be a simple story about an adventurous duck has suddenly become the type of long-winded story Hideo Kojima would be proud of.

    As much as I wanted to go back to Rapture, Burial at Sea is short on story and simplistic in the missions available. It is still good to see some familiar sights being powered by the Unreal Engine 3. Hopefully, the second part of Burial at Sea can help tie up a few things and improve upon the first.

    Vertical Drop Heroes is a really solid game. While there are a couple of things I could (and did) nitpick, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. If you're looking for a fun and slightly different type of RPG that you can easily play in spurts, definitely give this one a go.

    Glitchy Pixel's new game proves once and for all that it's more fun to be the ghost.

    Much as its title may suggest, Lollipop Chainsaw is a sweet confection of a game. It's an enjoyable experience, but ultimately hollow. Unlike the lollipops that Juliet sucks on, Lollipop Chainsaw won't make you fat, as it has almost no fat to speak of. It's a lean game predicated on replay value instead of an epic story and/or brilliant gameplay.

    It's not a perfect game by any means but the Bourne Conspiracy is a great start for a new franchise.

    While not as fully realized as its Xbox 360/PS3 counterpart, Skate It proves to be enough fun to recommend ... but only if you're willing to put the time in to get over the mountainous learning curve!

    Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars is enjoyable but rather easy, even in later stages.

    The sound design is bad, Plan 9 From Outer Space Bad, meaning that it's so bad to the point that it's unintentionally hilarious. Without a doubt, this is the most memorable soundtrack of the year, but for all the wrong reasons.

    n-Space takes the rather generic framework of Blood Stone and turns it into a thrilling Bond experience, through gameplay innovation and old fashioned ingenuity.

    While the execution misses in a few areas, Magrunner is a fun game that's worth your time if you're looking for an action-puzzle game.

    Life in space is probably not easy, so it's no surprise that there is a distinctly tough learning curve in Evochron Mercenary. Those with enough interest and diligence to stick with it, though, will be rewarded with deep, unfettered space sandbox game play.

    Sacred 2 is an excellent game that excels in many aspects while not doing anything terribly new or innovative for the genre.
