    If you are fan of the Persona titles, then you should have a good idea of what to expect. Just don't set your expectations too high since playing the previous Persona titles will most likely spoil you to this game and show you how far the Persona series has come.

    Mind Jack is definitely an enjoyable game and worth picking up and playing from an action standpoint, just don't expect a great script.

    I would recommend it for kids especially except that some of the jumping puzzles just drive you NUTS because they are so hard.

    Brute Force reminds me of a number of girls I dated - Right off the bat, you're happy with how she looks and the fun that you having with her - but a few weeks later when you start to see how shallow they really are - you start to lose interest.

    After the first vacation I really did not want to play this game anymore. I had already gotten the top swimsuit (the Venus) and after that I felt that my time with this game was done unless I wanted to pick it up to play the volleyball again.

    A fun game (at least for a while). Its downfall is that even if the average gamer can get past the controls, they're going to get turned off before finishing the game due to its repetitive gameplay.

    It's downright lame. It feels exactly like what it is – a cell-shaded game where you have to navigate large deathmatch maps essentially picking up "keys" in order to progress to the next level. It's loud, it's uninspired, and gets boring after a few hours.

    It isn't quite as good as the "Smackdown" series on PS2, but in this generation of wrestling games not much is.

    If you're a fan of the Red Faction series, there isn't anything in Battlegrounds that will satisfy your craving for more Red Faction. If you're looking for a simple multiplayer game that you can play with your friends locally or online to kill a few hours, Battlegrounds may very well be worth the price of admission.

    Unfortunately Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D doesn't feel very much like a Resident Evil game. It feels more like a zombie shooting gallery, except with blood spurts with each hit instead of the ding of a bell.

    The game is simple for when you want exactly that, but you can't help but feel like it could be so much more.

    Half-Minute Hero is a fun and quirky gem that is worth a second look.

    If you go in with tempered expectations and know there isn't much of a game, you'll have an enjoyable experience.

    The ability to customize characters, arenas, and just about everything else in the game is a testament to how well Yuke's and THQ know what wrestling fans want. It's just a shame that the game didn't have just a bit more polish. Non-fans like myself might want to put their money elsewhere, but wrestling fans will probably really enjoy what WWE '13 has to offer.

    All in all, Forge's frenetic gameplay, innovative concept, and active community make up for the lackluster feature list-but just barely.

    The bottom line is that Sticker Star is a generally enjoyable experience filled with long stretches of utter rage induced by poor game design.

    In the end, it feels like the externals were worked on more than the gameplay, making the game more style than substance.

    One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is a fun game that slowly loses its luster as the time in-game passes.

    Skydive: Proximity Flight may be lacking all the bells and whistles of more popular arcade titles, and at times I did want a little more variety, or maybe even just a missile launcher or two. But that’s not what this game is about. What you have here is a fairly realistic and engaging simulator of an experience that most of us will never try due to an overriding sense of self-preservation. And maybe that’s enough.

    Goodbye Deponia has some great things going for it: the gorgeous staged scenes set against hand-painted backdrops are Daedalic’s trademark, and they seem to have pulled it off again here.

    You’d be hard-pressed not to enjoy this game for at least a few hours, but go beyond that and it might get tedious.

    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies doesn’t do much to innovate the series, but does a great job at bringing a classic experience to the 3DS.

    With an excellent collection of game options, enjoyable novelties, and low price point; it’s among some of the best video game choices you could make this year.

    At the end of the day, Darklings is a mildly disappointing, but also intriguing, beauty.

    In the end, the DLC is $9.99, or double that for a season pass. While the story is compelling, it’s also fairly light on a meaningful denouement.

    I enjoyed Lococycle, but only after abandoning my sensibilities as I’ve learned to do when playing games from Twisted Pixel. To the uninitiated, Lococycle will prove rather perplexing as it isn’t like most games.

    Broken Sword 5: Serpent’s Curse is an adventure game through and through. The satisfaction comes not from high speed chases, but rather from patiently working the clues to uncover layers of mystery heaped upon one another hiding an evil curse. Here’s the rub – it’s half of a game.

    Bravely Default’s combat combines the best things that old-school JRPGs had to offer with some new and welcome additions, and its social features are incredibly forward-thinking. However, its sluggish pacing and over-reliance on repetition and genre conventions holds it back from being the Final Fantasy replacement we all wanted it to be.

    Strike Vector is a game with great ideas, and really breathes some life into a dying genre. The game’s challenge may be a bit too much for casual players, but if you’re looking to scratch that aerial shooter itch with a frantic edge, then take to the skies — but don’t expect to live long.

    If you are getting a Wario Ware 9-Volt games vibe, you are on the right track. If you like your old-school gaming challenging, and you don’t mind a few minor hiccups, NES Remix is worth a trip down memory lane.
