    It is unfortunate that my first experience with Dynasty Warriors was so disappointing, but as a newcomer the bland gameplay, bland environments and bland AI doesn’t make me want to come back.

    Unfortunately Drum Dash Deluxe is neither deep nor long enough to be worth the $7 asking price it stands at currently.

    Ultimately Sid Meier's Starships feels like a game that might have been great in VGA back in the 90s.

    My final thoughts of the game are... Pick up something better. There are way better titles that do this sort of gameplay all day long even in the bargain bin.

    Magic 2015 Duels of the Planeswalkers fails to reach the heights of previous games

    Carrier Command: Gaea Mission suffers from a classic case of 'Duke Nukem syndrome'. This game had a rather extensive development period (news of a remake has been buzzing around for about a decade) and just too much hype for anyone to expect that it would live up to all of their dreams. It sports quite a lengthy campaign so you won't be finishing it in a day, but with the poor gameplay, bugs and issues you'll face along the way, you may not even end up finishing it.

    For the hard boiled gamer with very old style gaming, you may find something hidden in Face Noir that can hold your interest.

    WWE 2K15 for XBox One is definitely different from the previous games but is easily the best looking game in the series to date.

    The game has some great potential but in its current state, it is limping along. The gamer who have the patience to hang on through the fixes may find a really great WW2 game here.

    If you love the show and get a kick out of mini-games you might enjoy this… but at 50 bucks, you’d be wise to wait until it drops to one-fifth that price.

    A Song of Ice and Fire is a series begging for a good, in depth RPG. This just isn't it. The story may be of interest to some, but most will not want to have to slog through the game to see how it ends. Go watch the first two seasons of Game of Thrones, or read the books and forget Mors and Alester ever existed.

    Maybe down the track this game will be patched in order to make it play better but I have a better idea; get it right the first time because this reviewer will never download a patch to make a game playable, that's why I bought a console, games should work every time straight out the box. This one does, barely, and that is why sadly I wouldn't bother with it.

    NeverDead could have been something interesting. Instead it squanders this with poor design and a story that is hard to care about. If the designers had worked on the combat, or some of the potential that could have been explored with the dismemberment, it could have been a sleeper hit. Instead it is a game that will hopefully be ignored and quickly forgotten, as there is very little here to recommend about it.

    Borderlands Legends doesn't live up to the Borderlands family name. The game could've been good, since it fits perfectly in the Borderlands style. However the game never succeeds in finding the right balance between shooting and tactical gameplay. Also the game is never really challenging and has some annoying technical issues.

    So while Panic in Paradise is largely a better game than its progenitor in terms of structure, delightful hats and sensible pricing, this elaborate sandbox for sadists is not a great deal more enticing than it was last time. It's as trashy as ever, without nearly enough charm or sharp humour to balance its unpleasant, vengeance-driven narrative.

    Punisher: No Mercy....no single player game to speak of....but lock and loaded for multi-player.

    Singstar Ultimate Party is a true dichotomy and ultimately gives the player a half-baked karaoke game on the PlayStation 4 that is saved by its cost.

    Saw II: Flesh & Blood tries to bring a great deal of emotion into a game, this is something that developers have been trying to do for years and very few games have accomplished this effectively. Saw II fails to deliver this, it is difficult to become attached to the lead character and without this attachment it is difficult to be overly concerned about the characters.

    Although I desperately tried to like this game, unfortunately the buggy, almost unfinished gameplay made things a very frustrating and annoying experience.

    As a next-gen title, Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark is an embarrassment

    A show as delightfully zany as Adventure Time deserves much better that this bland and uninspired pastiche of top-down dungeon crawler mechanics and the brief flashes of irreverent humour and charm that appear throughout can’t save this rushed and dull waste of a license.

    Fans of the Rollercoaster Tycoon series may find some level of nostalgia playing Tycoon 3D, but if they were waiting for a genre defining entry, this certainly isn't what they're looking for.

    Even though there are a few mini-games in the title, these seem a little too forced and contrived and what's even more frustrating is that one wrong answer sees you at the bottom of the quiz game pit again.

    Overall, Thor feels like it is a rushed movie tie-in game with seemingly little thought about the core mechanics of the game, it feels too like there was little in the way of play testing prior to release. To sum up, this game has poor graphics, bad gameplay, average sounds and most likely will only see one play through, if that. At the end of the day, the game feels exactly like what it is, a rushed movie tie-in game.

    It’s hard to expect great things from a movie-tie-in title, but Turbo Super Stunt Squad wasted an opportunity to be a harmless kid racer and instead became a unsatisfying skateboarding game that can be sometimes too challenging for its target audience of young children.

    As combat plays an integral part to Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor and if the Kinect controls worked flawlessly, this game would have been a blast as you fought your enemies. To make matters worse, checkpoints between deaths are far too long which makes it an effort to continue.

    Ready 2 Rumble Revolution looks fine...and that’s about it. The controls are awful and the whole ‘RUMBLE’ thing is waaaay overpowered. It’s matter of who activates it first, it has nothing to do with a fun party game in which you whack away at your friends.

    While Orion: Dino Horde has potential, it will certainly fall short of even modest expectations. If it weren't for there already being quite the track record of bad Jurassic games, I'd suggest that fighting dinosaurs has never been so dull. A shame, since it's evident that the developers put a lot of time into it... it's just too bad they didn't focus on making it fun.

    A spectacular show and its fan base were given a huge black eye with this one, and someone committed Murder on the franchise as a game when they released this game.

    At the end of the day, I only found a handful of the mini-games enjoyable but the problem is you need to filter through the rest which is quite horrendous to say the least. Sorry guys, save your money!
