    No, NFL Blitz isn't PRECISELY the same as its old counterpart, because, yep, we do miss the late hits. But it's as good as arcade football gets, a must-have Xbox Live game that easily overshadows Madden NFL Arcade as our favorite go-to sports game. It really goes well with NBA Jam: On Fire Edition.

    An immensely enjoyable game that is suited not only to the hardcore, but the casuals as well.

    Unless you have a high end PC capable of running the game smoothly on at least high settings, get the Xbox 360 version. It's a complete experience right out of the box that comes with some great content within in the box itself like a map, soundtrack and quest handbook.

    Trials Evolution eclipses the original game, just as a good sequel should. RedLynx really took their time with this one, but it paid off, between some splendid track designs, plenty of replay value, challenging gameplay and one of the best presentation set-ups put into a downloadable game.

    With a new lead and a story that actually clicks better than expected, it's a wonderful sequel that surpasses the original. Though some aspects can be questioned, the game as a whole gives you a bunch to do, online and off, and some incredible means to get it done.

    Fez
    Be warned: just like the games of our past Fez is a game that will constantly test you, frustrate you, and then reward you in ways only a game like this can.

    Its production value has been put to good use, and the gameplay will really get you involved, even with the push-button segments. We can't wait to see just how much better this series gets.

    What could've been a second-rate PC port for the service is instead a quality addition, one with hours' worth of gameplay, whether going on your own or joining up with friends in the building community. The stuff you can make is only limited by your imagination, and though it takes time, the effort is certainly worth it.

    The presentation is superbly polished, and having McCaffrey on board makes the Max magic happen all over again.

    Not since the old days of Psygnosis' Destruction Derby games have we been able to really go in and trash cars for the sake of trashing cars.

    The game is very difficult and will require you many playthroughs before you even reach the second world much less beat the entire game. Death takes you back to the beginning of the game and you'll lose all the treasure and items you've earned in your time with the game. Still, Spelunky has an undeniable charm that will have you laughing as you die the first time and the hundredth time.

    If you're up for some destruction and don't have Angry Birds handy, this is clearly the next best thing.

    It really sneaks up on you and delivers an ultimate fighting experience, and not from the usual source that you'd expect. Everything clicks to some degree, and the number of modes, along with online functionality, will really teach you a thing or two about fighting games.

    Gameplay that constantly changes with each weapon you pick up and challenges galore, especially in the arena. The presentation is also top notch, a true sign of dedication from Joe "Mad" Maduriera and his team.

    The music is sensational, and though it was done by an in-house team hired by Dodrill, they definitely keep the adventurous tone flowing throughout, even with the slower town exploration themes. The voicework is great too.

    Rock Band Blitz defines a new era of addiction for the franchise, presenting a worthwhile effort to Xbox Live Arcade that will draw you in for months at a time.

    With its demanding gameplay, Mark of the Ninja may not be a game for everyone. Those who prefer destroying everyone with kick-assery may prefer the more visceral Ninja Gaiden 3 instead. But for those seeking a challenge or a game that really makes you feel like you're in the ninja uniform, Klei's Mark of the Ninja immensely satisfies.

    Loaded with options benefitting both single play and online interaction, it's got just about everything a fan would truly want except you still can't make Gretzky bleed.

    The sound design isn't going to do much for you if you're not a fan of the direction electronic music has taken these days, but I personally feel that the game's soundtrack is of incredible quality and matches perfectly with Borderland's style and how it plays. It's intense, powerful, edgy and exactly what a videogame of this caliber needs in order to stay immersed with the atmosphere.

    If you were a huge fan of last year's game, there might not be enough in 13 to warrant an immediate purchase but FIFA 13 is certainly the best football game to date until at least the next generation.

    Capcom has done a remarkable job in presenting these beloved classics in their original state while adding just enough extra content like CRT Mode, The Vault and the slew of filters that allow you to recreate the game to look exactly like the last time you played it during the '90s.

    It's ridiculous how Visual Concepts makes a monumental series and continues to improve upon it, even if it's in small and subtle ways. NBA 2K13 shows nothing but forward progress, and continues to be one of the best sports series on the planet.

    Though it's got its problems, Dishonored is a damn good game, one that makes use of a compelling storyline and wraps it into strong first-person gameplay, and a presentation that's pretty hard to beat.

    Just Dance 4 beats out any other fitness title and is a perfect way to get in some fun exercise. The best part is the diversity of tracks which can fit any mood that you are in.

    A great game that comes up shy in being the ultimate Halo experience. Since this is 343's first installment in what is supposed to be a new trilogy, I think they deserve plenty of credit for making a game that may not be revolutionary but opens the doors for some major improvements in the future.

    Though Assassin's Creed III isn't quite the perfect killing machine, it's a damn good one, and a game that definitely lives up to the hype.

    The presentation is mostly right on, and the gameplay feels on par with Criterion's best work.

    Contracts is a huge addition, and one that'll add months of replay value long after you complete the single player mode. Throw in a "killer" presentation and you've got one of the year's most surprising sequels.

    After finishing up the single-player campaign for the second time I came away very happy and found that I wish there was more to play. Finding yourself smiling more than once while finding a new way to kill an enemy or blow up that dinosaur skeleton is a normal occurrence for this game. The gameplay is simply superb and it looks really good while doing it.

    PGR3 may not have changed the winning formula but it’s hard to fault a title that stays true to such a successful recipe.
