    A lackluster port of a middling game that does little to showcase the exciting new system it's on means only the diehard fans need to bother spending time with the world's most famous wizard.

    The very definition of a pleasant surprise, World Gone Sour proves that the advergame doesn't have to live in the land of mediocrity. For a mere 5 bucks, this is a sold platformer with a wicked sense of humor.

    A great start to what should be a fantastic series. Telltale nailed the atmosphere and did a fantastic job of making the player feel as though their choices have meaning. Can't wait to see where things go to next.

    This is a game worth your time. I can't emphasize it enough by saying it's very 'Japanese' and quirky, meaning you're unlikely to find anything else like it on the market right now.

    The game is deep and focuses on beating the man in front of you. It's like having a pickup game of soccer somewhere except this time you can actually pull off the tricks that the pros use. Grab a pal and have a blast.

    A neat toy for your Move, it's hard to justify even a budget retail price for a game that belongs on the lower rung of the PSN price scale. The frantic minigames evoke a few hours of fun, but things don't change enough to keep it fresh.

    Skullgirls is proof of what an independent developer with an ear to the people can produce. It was simply engineered in a superior manner, by a team with more freedom than those from larger companies enjoy.

    Reality Fighters is an unmitigated disaster. It begins with a questionable concept and meets a fiery, disastrous end at the hands of poorly implemented AR and botched fighting mechanics. If you are looking for proof that AR is the future, look on.

    It does a lot of things right and is a blast to play competitively and casually. Unfortunately, Capcom's choices with DLC may have damned the game to a shorter time in the spotlight.

    Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations squeezes every ounce it can from the Naruto franchise and leverages it well, making it the perfect game for fans of the series. Fight fans may find its simplicity disappointing, but not without its charms.

    Don't get me wrong, the game is fun and a filled online match is second to none. With some better decisions this game could have been special, instead it's forgettable and will likely be abandoned. Sitting in lobbies is not the definition of a good time.

    Rayman Origins embodies everything right and good about 2D platformers. If you want to be reminded why this genre took gaming by storm in the 80's and 90's, or you simply want to play a rare, honest to goodness video game, pick this one up ASAP.

    It almost feels like a patched version of 2K11. With another challenger looming in the wings for next year's baseball crown it's likely that 2K will have to step their game up. Note to devs: please fix the shoes next year, too. I beg of you.

    It is heads and shoulders above all of the other JRPGs to release this year and may be one of the best on the PS3. There are things that could have been better but otherwise it's solid. Plus it gives you incentive to play through the whole game again.

    SSX
    You'll get more than your money's worth here. This is a game that you will pull from the shelf for months to come just to drop in and do "one more race" that will lead to a few lost hours.

    Many niche JRPG fans will find this to be exactly what they're looking for but to the casual gamers out there, steer clear.

    Don't get me wrong: I loved my time with Asura's Wrath. I want to see the game succeed and get more support. I just wish there was more bang for the buck and that the ending wasn't obviously setting up for a sequel by leaving so many loose ends.

    No, it doesn't stay true to the franchise at all, yet Syndicate still manages to impress with both a well executed artistic vision and a thoughtfully implemented co-op mode that takes some fresh approaches.

    The re-release is just as strong as the original. They jammed the disc full of everything and even chipped in some extras. Even the thing they omitted (the online pass) is a plus. It's just up to you whether it's worth the door charge.

    Games that summon up emotions from a cold son of a bitch like me are incredibly rare... Journey had me grabbing the box of tissues by the time it was over.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It doesn't quite capture the pathos of the first game, but it DOES tighten up the gameplay and keep the action moving all the way through. It won't go down as a cult classic like the first, but there is plenty of fun this time around.

    One can feel the touch of the void on every aspect, the faint droning echo of sick, tuneless piping for an inscrutable and alien corporate master. The end product serves no one.

    A great refinement to the first game and great at using the Vita features without being an impediment or feeling forced, Mutant Blobs Attack is the best value on the Vita right now, and a must-buy for most owners.

    Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is a good port of a once great game. Returning fans will doubtlessly fall back in love with the combat, but will be dismayed with how poorly the rest of the package has aged.

    The collection hits highs (Jak 1) and lows (Jak II) but serves as a great window into the changing of the guard in action platforming in the early aughties. Gamers who haven't checked out the series really should for historic value alone.

    Further proving that it's unnecessary to fix something that never broke, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational keeps true to its series roots while offering a ton of content and good times. A treat for anyone who enjoys golf or fun.

    If you're looking for a way to justify that new Vita and its memory card, look no further. Even if you don't like the series, the combination of fantastic gunplay and slick platforming delivered in a new way may just win you over.

    ModNation Racers: Road Trip has a ton of content, but quantity doesn't beget quality. Obviously rushed out the door for launch, it captures little of what made the console release so charming. Steer clear, there are far better racers on the market.

    At its core, Wipeout 2048 is a solid arcade racer, but it suffers from a few too many poor design decisions to truly shine. Die hard series fanatics will still find a lot to enjoy, but mileage may vary for first time players.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Dungeon Hunter: Alliance is more than simply a bad game. It's a cynical act of greed and apathy on the part of its publisher and developer. Avoid it at all costs and advise as many people as will listen to do the same.
