    While not the most original experience, Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll offers plenty of enjoyment with its addictive quests and massive combat sequences.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    An arcade racer that has more to offer than a few hundred left turns, NASCAR The Game 2011 provides plenty of thrills despite some bumps in the road.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A thrilling and attractive racer, MX vs ATV: Alive is a fundamentally good game, but the serious lack of content and repetitive progression prevents it from being great.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Too hit-and-miss for casual gamers, and tolerable for X-Men fans. Mechanic issues are forgivable only by appreciating the great X-Men renditions.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    There's plenty of fun to be had out of Top Darts, but a few issues prevent it from scoring a perfect 180.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Asphalt: Injection is the Prius of the racing genre: it's not great, but it'll get you by.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    This game has a few glimmers of hope, but it needs a proper chassis before this becomes a good car, so to speak.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Table Top Tanks shines as a tech demo but falls rather flat as a game. Still, recommending PlayStation Vita's most novel experience is easy when it's priced at $1.99.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It's FIFA, but nowhere close to FIFA 13.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Ultimately, the different modes are a shallow vehicle for allowing players to control memorable characters from the franchise's history. There's unfortunately no tangible benefit to playing as favorites like Oddjob, or anyone else, for that matter.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Combat is underwhelming and the basic grind can become repetitive, while the amount of backtracking further compounds these issues. However, if you can stick at it, you'll find that Book of Memories is still frighteningly addictive, and with friends can provide a nice distraction.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Near the end of the game, Isaac Clarke tells John Carver, “Good men mean well. We just don’t always end up doing well.” Ironically, the statement is exactly how I feel about Visceral Games’ work on Dead Space 3. The elements they chose to add were in hopes to attract a larger audience yet in a questionable direction. What’s left is a game that is mildly fun, but filled with flaws.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The successes of Defiance are quickly overshadowed by its flaws. Trion Worlds promises that Defiance will continue to evolve and improve. I hope so: beneath the muck is a game that deserves better.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A new take on an old genre, Tiny Token Empires tries to be creative and innovate by splicing two genres together. Unfortunately, the dodgy controls and lack of depth means any time you do put into it isn't ultimately all that rewarding.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A decent final entry in this generation, NCAA Football 14 sports a better physics engine, more refined gameplay and mild tweaks to some game modes. We have higher hopes, however, that we see more substantial changes as this franchise makes its way to next-gen consoles.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A Frankenstein monster of gameplay sensibilities, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is a good origin story for series fans but doesn't do third-person shooting or real-time strategy well enough to compel enthusiasts of either genre.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Though Mirror of Fate's HD upgrade looks great and its entertaining combat is a good move forward for the franchise, it doesn't reach the heights of its predecessor.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Engaging cooperative puzzles and local co-op are reasons to consider an otherwise indistinct game that's over way too quickly.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Looks and plays like Broken Sword of old with nice touch-screen integration, but its slow pace and unexciting storyline left us feeling a little bored with this first episode.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Kids, casual gamers, and those interested in religion will enjoy Adam's Venture: Chronicles. The rest of us, programmed for debauchery and destruction, should probably stick to the games in our wheelhouse.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    In terms of gameplay, the PS Vita version holds up relatively well, but the game still has noticeable issues.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut provides a great deal of fundamental successes with a great deal of equally fundamental flaws. Though the gameplay is solid and engaging, the weak narrative, delayed progression, and sparse gameplay variety leave this game only to those who love mechs.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The dipping frame rate and the formatting miscues keep this game from bumping elbows with the best that the PS Vita has to offer. Though it's still missing a great deal of content, at least gamers can transfer their saves and still play this with one friend.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Crimsonland's antiquated, cookie-cutter gameplay doesn't break new ground at all, but beneath the copious amounts of blood saturating the screen, you'll find that there's still some fun to be had in this mindless mutant massacre fest.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A wasted opportunity in almost every conceivable manner.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Alpha Protocol is all ambition with little follow through. This espionage-RPG attempts to draw players into a world of lock picking, Saudi terrorists, and secret government conspiracies, but does it so ineffectively it is hard to maintain interest past the first mission.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While Potter fanatics will get limited enjoyment out of the boy wizard's wand-waving antics, everyone else will be left disappointed at the lack of creativity.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A lack luster adventure, Lara looks great, but gameplay is predictable and thwarted by camera issues.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The Shoot offers mild entertainment in a quick arcade-style shooter package, but it is ultimately lacking in so many areas it is hard to justify the price tag.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Blood Stone puts the world's favorite spy in a series of action and chase sequences that are exhilarating, but sadly they aren't enough to save this otherwise flat title.
