    Company of Heroes 2 focuses more on online gameplay than a single-player driven experience. War on the Eastern Front is just as chaotic as it was in the West, but the addition of environmental factors adds a new level of depth that players will also have to tackle. Realistic combat coupled with a multiplayer mode that delivers will keep you charging the fields for an extended period of time.

    All in all, you get exactly what you can expect from Chronicles of Mystara: An excellent, old-school brawler that won’t necessarily please younger gamers, but that will almost certainly delight older, nostalgic fans.

    The newly redesigned characters combined with the already stellar graphics and physics make this a great game to play whether you're a fan of pool or if you just want a cool game to play this summer. Though I would've liked more game modes and I have my doubts about how large the online community will be in a few months, Pool Nation is still a must-buy for PlayStation 3 owners.

    A welcome surprise and a nice break from the story-heavy and highly cinematic games that have come out in the past few months. This game is the definition of gameplay over presentation, and it’s all the better for it.

    Fans may struggle with the genre shift, but Sacred Citadel is exactly what it set out to be: A pick-up-and-play side-scroller where button-mashing trumps anything resembling narrative depth.

    Gods Among Us provides a robust cast of DC fighters, gameplay mechanics that cater to gamers of all levels, and an extensive amount of content that will leave gamers delighted.

    Rarely is a trip through time, courtesy of a video game, as engaging and enjoyable. This new mode delivers pure immersion due to the gameplay variety and era specific visuals.

    BioShock Infinite is a sure-fire game-of-the-year candidate, and definitely one of the standout single-player games of this generation.

    For the Naruto faithful this game is as good as it gets, and compared to some of the dreck that other anime studios have pushed into the gaming world fans can do a lot worse.

    I found that frustrating handling overshadowed the plethora of content in what would otherwise be an enjoyable racer.

    Capcom’s Monster Hunter team seems to be well aware of what their fans want, and with the multitude of improvements found in this remastered edition of MH3, newcomers have a very good reason to hop on the bandwagon and start enjoying this great franchise.

    Judgment feels a bit like an excuse to provide the Xbox 360 with one last first-party game for what is likely to be its final year as Microsoft’s flagship game platform.

    As enjoyable as Darkstalkers may have been in the past, the series has been eclipsed and nothing about its revival can make that fact untrue.

    Improvements need to be made, but Metal Gear Rising has already established itself to be an action game well worth buying.

    For those who already have mad skills on the dance floor, this game delivers as advertised. Unfortunately it is also fiendishly hard and those not endowed with a strong hip hop dance background will find a very steep learning curve.

    Lara’s latest adventure is one of the most fun, immersive, emotional, and thrilling rides the series has ever taken us on.

    Despite Alien Breed’s shortcomings, it still holds the charm of a bygone era. The new level packages, while not quite as extensive as the original Breed or its special edition release, provide more than enough content to justify the $10 PSN price tag.

    If you are a fan of the Crysis franchise, though, you may still find elements to enjoy about the game, but if you seek to find a totally new FPS experience or even just a breath of fresh air, you will be very disappointed with Crysis 3. It may not be the best in the series or live up to its full potential, but it remains an enjoyable game nonetheless.

    A worthy rebirth of the franchise as it possesses fast-paced chaotic action, which is diversified by the several weapons that make up Dante’s arsenal, an engaging soundtrack, and a story worthy of the DmC franchise.

    While Special Forces cannot contend with the expansiveness and nuance of Call of Duty or Halo, it does have an innate “pick up and play” quality.

    While the buzz surrounding the game brought fear to a lot of the series’ veteran players over the past few months, I’m happy to report that the final product is a near-perfect balance of classic Dead Space and action-oriented gameplay.

    Rabbids Land had the chance to really be the first go-to party game on the Wii U. Sadly, Ubisoft doesn't deliver a worthwhile experience, and the Rabbids brand, such as it is, suffers as a result.

    Even though it was given a resolution increase, you still can't play the game widescreen, and porting the 10 year old graphics and physics engine doesn't make it better.

    What is insanity? Anyone who has yet to experience the thrill that Far Cry 3 has to provide.

    The targeted demographic often seems to become an excuse for developers to offer little content and oversimplified game mechanics, but any parent that wants to offer something their kids could enjoy on their brand new Wii U should think twice before investing in this title.

    Lord of the Rings was a supreme candidate for the Lego treatment, and Traveller's Tales has put together the perfect set of gameplay elements to complement the license they were working with.

    Black Ops II presents interesting backdrops and fine shooter action. The game hits its stride when it presents features that move beyond your traditional shooter, whether that be shooting at helicopters from horseback or diving out the back of a crippled plane.

    Overall, ESPN Sports Connection was a frustrating experience from every angle. It's sad, but it feels like the game tries to fill a void that simply isn't there.
