    At its heart, Ride is basically a motorcycle racing simulation but with a touch of arcade fun to assist with the overall enjoyment factor.

    Need for Speed Rivals is a fun game, however the open-world racing genre still needs to be refined, especially with the limit of 6-players. Nonetheless, the gameplay is sturdy, graphics detailed but the multiplayer definitely needs some work.

    In the end, The Shoot is actually one of the better PlayStation Move titles but unfortunately it's plagued by a very short completion time.

    With the PS3 version being far superior, the Vita version is only for those who do not own their home console brother as on the Vita it's fun but not great due to the frustration factor.

    With decent graphics, great sound effects, albeit a sometimes annoying commentator, overall it's a fun title.

    It's a simple casual game with no real plots to be had other than the fantasy of being discovered. Star power of the Awesome Chris Evans makes it very personable and fun experience.

    I do recommend this game to those that simply love the traditional role-playing story. I also suggest it as a good starter game for those who have just been introduced to the genre and aren’t quite ready for the over elaborate UI systems that most RPGs tend to have.

    Out of the box, with some of the bugs hindering some player experience, Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising needs a bit more TLC from the developers, till then we are in a hurry up and wait situation.

    Even though the game is excruciating frustrating and difficult at times, when linked with other players, the game really shines, especially if you have a full assorted of gamers to play.

    The game does attempt to merge a variety of different gaming genres together which some work and some don't. More particularly, some of the mini-games which were a little lacklustre.

    Rise of Nightmares is a fun game that harkens back to the House of the Dead series and with the controllerless capabilities, it definitely takes this genre to a new level. This makes it a much more immersive experience. In terms of originality, the gameplay is not the most original content of the year but as a Kinect title, it works quite well.

    Overall A Vampyre Story is a decent game. Some may find it slow paced, some may not see the humour in the conversations, but as a call back to classic adventure games there is little else available.

    In conclusion, if you’re a fan of the series, than you’re in Yu-Gi-Oh heaven which does successfully transfer the card game to the virtual world. Although the graphics are a little lacking, the gameplay with real players more than makes up for this inconsistency.

    The latest incarnation of Tetris is a mixed bag but for some reason, I just wanted to play and play. It's quite addictive and the new One-Touch and Galaxy modes are very good. It's a shame that EA have put currency in the forefront of this game because there are just too many costs associated with this title.

    For now, DC Universe is a little rough around the edges and hopefully the developers will release additional areas in the upcoming months but for now, my experience was a little less than satisfying.

    In the end, Test Drive Ferrari Racing Legends is everything that a Ferrari fan could ask for from the sturdy gameplay, decent graphics and even multiplayer to challenge your friends and enemies.

    In the end, Puffle Launch may not be the most original iOS game available and sticks to a tried and tested formula. It's definitely one for the kids or if its on sale, go grab it as it's addictive and fast-paced!

    From pets to pvp, even jobs, titles, reputation, achievements and so many other things, Forsaken world defiantly has a plethora of content. It is not hard to get into the game and once you do, you will be surprised how easily it sucks you in. This is a fun and visually pleasing game for many types of gamers like casual, non-casual, players who do not want to spend money, and even players that do. Whatever your play style, I am sure Forsaken World will grab you in and offer hours upon hours of fun.

    Despite this, WrestleFest is still one of the better wrestling games on the iPad and is worth a shot for wrestling fans although is not recommended for anyone wanting to relive the joys of the original.

    Overall Zack Zero looks like a game that was developed on a low budget and as such decided to go for a more fun, focused gameplay. It isn't a serious game, but it does serve the goal of entertaining you while you sit down and play it. If you have no problem with casual games and just want to kill some time and doesn't mind a few bugs or kinks, I'd recommend the game for you.

    Despite this Puddle is an original concept, and it can certainly be addictive. It is refreshing to see a game this simple be able to grab a players attention for a number of hours. Enjoyment of the game will definitely depend on the player's ability to handle frustration as it probably could have done with a lower difficulty setting. That being said, if a puzzle game gets you to keep coming back it must be doing something right.

    In the end, Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale doesn't offer the gamer anything new in terms of gameplay but gives players a classic sword and sorcery experience plus 10 or so hours of gameplay. It may not be the most exciting game of the year but considering the cost, it's actually not that bad either. If you are a fan of the classic Dungeons & Dragons rules and game settings than you really should check out this game, provided you like button smashing.

    For a first generation Kinect game, Sonic Free Riders definitely gives the gaming community an interesting premise. Even though the Kinect is a glorified EyeToy for XBox 360, SEGA have managed to successfully capture the Sonic franchise, turn it into a racer and more importantly, a controller free racer.
