    A good game with high production value, but it is just too repetitive and boring as you go through wave upon wave of the same enemies using the same punches and kicks every time.

    Those who have fond memories of the original Pitfall! will relive some of those memories upon booting up the game. However, the simplicity of the original game is lost later, and it becomes more of a puzzle-solving, rope swing timing game.

    Don’t dismiss this game just because it is a budget title, it’s definitely got some hook to it. If these guys had a bigger budget, this would be a hit.

    Assuming you can look past the clunky controls, bad camera, frustrating difficulty and so-so graphics, there's some fun to be found here.

    In this day of me-too action games, you could definitely find something worse than Chili Con Carnage.

    However, standing alone, Telltale Games can and has done much better than Chapter 5.

    At $39.99 any fan of Silent Hill should enjoy Siren: Blood Curse.

    Unfortunately for Konami, Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 doesn’t have the benefit of coming at a highly reduced price tag. Konami is working against a stream of influence and licensing deficiencies, but has failed to work what it does have into a good product. Unless you are dying to play two soccer games, or have the burning desire to customize, Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 is best left on the shelves.

    On one hand there is a fantastic immersive horror title that captures the environment perfectly. On the other hand, you have a game that is filled with bugs and leads you with both hands tied through the whole game.

    FEAR2 is a game that is evolutionary and not revolutionary but also seems to take a step back in many departments. The ending leaves the player hanging, Alma doesn't really make as many appearances as in the first game, the dumbed down AI, and the lack of a multiplayer community might spell death for the game before it even starts to take off.

    Transformers: Decepticons feels exactly like what it is – a handheld multi-platform game that was rushed out to meet the deadline the film’s release date.

    It’s definitely worth a look if you’re after something a little outside of the ordinary, and is certainly worthy of at least a cautious recommendation.

    BR4 can be fun with friends and those new to the fighting game genre, but the lack of depth and the button mashing controls don’t help BR4 against the high standards set by other games in the fighting genre.

    DarkStar One is a fairly big (and dangerous) world; while it isn't always the prettiest game nor does it host a wide variety of missions like other contemporary sandbox titles, the important thing to know is this: for a 4 year old port it still manages to bring something new to the table that is fun and the combat works, and in the end isn't that exactly what we want out of our games?

    Transformers: Autobots feels exactly like what it is – a handheld multi-platform game that was rushed out to meet the deadline the film’s release date. It certainly taps into the nostalgia Transformers brings out in fans, but so does the movie itself, which is vastly more entertaining.

    I was never one of those Minesweeper fanatics, but this game takes an old concept and moves it forward into the 21st Century. You sure do get a bunch of gameplay from a five dollar title and that makes it worth it!

    Priced on release day at only $15, this game is a worthy, if flawed, tribute to the 90’s PC gamer that can be enjoyed by the old-school and new-school alike.

    The game really falls flat, and feels more like a hack and slash title than a superhero game.

    The game is very monotonous after the first couple of levels, the graphics are inconsistent and the motion controls don’t always work. So if you’re a Wii owner and a fan of slower paced survival horror games then give Cursed Mountain a shot. Everyone else should probably rent it before they buy it

    I question people paying $50 for a game when they might get the feeling of "been here, done that". Vexx's biggest problem is the camera, but you can overcome it as long as you have patience.

    As with Neverwinter Nights, community will drive this game and a lack of it will easily kill it. Hopefully the community will pull together with Agetec's help (perhaps through a contest or something) and this game will give both classes of players plenty to do.

    This game is for those of you that love franchise modes, but not necessarily for a pick up and play game. The gameplay problems really hurt this game, especially from the defensive perspective.

    Ultimately I would recommend Black Rock Shooter: The Game to anyone who likes JRPGs but is getting tired of the same old formula.

    You fight for a bit, die, respawn somewhere on the back end of the map, and then spend a few minutes racing back across the map only to die again.Rinse, repeat, and eventually you'll earn enough experience points to purchase perks to upgrade your skills and status. Even for 800 points, there are better titles out there to spend your money on.

    The major problem with that idea is that later in the game the platforming and strategy elements can become quite difficult and children may feel it is out of their grasp.

    It is time to move into the Next Generation of hardware with both feet and create a new title from the ground up with new concepts and new gameplay elements.

    The bugs in the title really frustrated me (and many others), and while there are workarounds, the players really shouldn't have to work around bugs and lapses in development, especially since some of the bugs were carried over from "MLB 06."

    While the first FSW was considered somewhat revolutionary, it was something different and unique, only one sequel later the game seems a bit one dimensional and stale.

    Graphics are crisp and colorful on the screen, and there is enough variety in play style to keep interest going.

    It’s a light, 2D arcade shooter that’s great for killing some time if you’re waiting for your wife to get ready, but if you’re looking for immersive gameplay and a deeper level of engagement, or beautiful, eye-catching graphics, you’ll be better off looking somewhere else.
