    While Out of the Park 14 is a fun fantasy styled game, gamers with not much interest in baseball or waiting (because of the real time aspect) won’t enjoy this game as much as sports fans and fantasy sports players.

    It's a game of stats; it's a game of numbers, and lots of information. It also gives history and quotes from players and baseball personalities throughout the history of the game. If you have a passing interest in the game of baseball this series may not be for you. For those baseball fans, those real baseball fans, if you have not discovered this franchise yet, then you are in for a real treat indeed.

    Overall, F1 2010 can be a very immersive game and draw you in for a few seasons provided you are patient with it and go in the right mindset.

    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.

    The Pokémon series makes a return to the Hoenn region that’s well worth a revisit.

    Sonic Cd may not look pretty, game wise though it is a solid fun romp in the retro gaming realm.

    Whether you into soccer all year round or dust off your Australian jersey every 4 years for the world cup, PES 13 is a must have title for any fan.

    A whole new way to play online shooters- instead of shooting people, shoot the ground!

    This fast paced, gore filled, side-scroller is a game for any mature gamers who want to get addicted to game for a while and dive into a exciting game.

    Prince of Persia has flashes of greatness. Its production values are absolutely stunning – but the game designers need to take a long hard look at themselves.

    So should you part with $50 for this little addition? Frankly, no. Wait for discounting, because it's currently much too overpriced for what's on offer. Neither the religion or espionage change the game that much, and Civ 5 is still suffering from the same malaise it did before Gods & Kings hit.

    If you are an avid Pokémon fan, what you get with Black & White Version 2 is a true Pokémon experience.

    The experience locked away in GTA III is beautiful. Unfortunately, the control scheme represents a complicated key.

    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.

    Technical issues aside and unfair difficulty in some quests don’t stop Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen from being an enjoyable and exciting RPG. While fans of the original may feel ripped off with the lack of any game changing enhancements, a lowered retail price suggests that Capcom is reaching out to newcomers who will get the most out of this release. To those newcomers I strongly suggest giving it a go.

    Total War: Attila is definitely one for the long-time fans. It’s a shame that the new mechanics are buried beneath an absurd difficulty curve and an unhelpful tutorial, but with enough patience and practice (lots of it), Attila will reveal itself a nice step forward for the Total War series.

    OOTP offers more than a plethora, more than a myriad, but an entire mini-universe of customizable options and configurations packed into a slick, organized interface that any stat-head could jump into in five minutes.

    My advice to gamers who find Rusty Hearts intriguing is to go ahead and play - after all, it's free - but I would suggest that you not give your money to Perfect World for the little extras until they offer some sort of technical support in return.

    Rift has always been an immersive contender in a market that is tough to compete in. Yet not only has Rift survived, it has flourished - well enough to support an expansion, and Trion Worlds shows love for their game's community with this monster of an update. Many players swear by Rift, and with such a strong and lovingly-crafted expansion, it seems likely that the number will grow. If you already play Rift, then by now you know what an awesome addition Storm Legion is to the game. If not, consider this deep and complex MMORPG a worthy contender for your time.

    For gamers looking for a truly enjoyable title and more importantly, a game that plays extremely well on the 3DS, than look no further because this game is it. Just don't expect to be blown away by the innovative gameplay as we've kind of seen it all before but hey... it's awesomely good fun.

    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 feels like a major step back for the series. The story itself is fantastic, the method in which it is told is just lacking. There is overall a lack of innovation from previous installations and is a bit stagnant at this point in time.

    In the end, Shank 2 is a fun yet ultimately forgettable game which uses its over the top violence and retro presentation to create something different yet not that original either.

    There is a lot of promise here for Rise Of Flight, though it is being held back by a few things such as load times, lack of front end mission menu information of any depth.

    At the end of the day, Garou Mark of Wolves is an interesting walk down memory lane, however it fails to successfully deliver a truly entertaining experience due to the graphics and limited gameplay.

    As with previous iterations in the series, 'Just Dance 4' is a fun romp in which anyone can participate and is as accessible as ever to the casual gamer.
