    Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir is an interesting experiment in AR gaming that expands the possibilities of the 3DS beyond that of just a gaming handheld.

    Stick with Ridge Racer Unbounded long after you want to throw your controller in frustration, because patience reveals a solid, intense and fun arcade racer.

    Kid Icarus: Uprising is a charming and wonderful game, slightly hamstrung by a physically tiresome and awkward control scheme.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 prevents the series from getting long in the tooth by introducing some great new mechanics and modes. I enjoyed my time reviewing the game and for the first time in years, found myself incredibly excited swing in and swing out. It's too bad that the Free To Play model has seeped into the game and that DLC is continually dangled in front of the player, because it's distracting and annoying.

    If you're going into Operation Raccoon City for the campaign, you'll likely be a bit disappointed, as I was, but if you're looking for a multiplayer game that you can jump into with friends, you'll find much to enjoy. The game isn't perfect, but the developers really tried to tweak the multiplayer formula and they succeeded in creating several fun modes that are action-packed and unpredictable.

    A fun game and a unique blended experience for online-inclined players. It can feel a bit overwhelming with information feedback and customization menus, but with enough time and dedication to figuring things out, players will find a rewarding experience and solid mech combat.

    Sine Mora is exactly what the genre needed, a game that balances fun with skill and challenge, and doesn't alienate the general gaming audience for the most nice of audiences. The developers at Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture put together a game that really strikes the right mix and will hopefully usher in a new era for the shmup genre.

    There's something to be said about a game that loads you up with infinite missiles and a sky full of bogeys; Top Gun: Hard Lock is high on intensity and low on reality and it's rather fun because of that.

    Ridge Racer is more of a proof of concept than full title; the game has a slim amount of content and its best aspects require an online connection, meaning if you're taking your racing on the go, you're going to be disappointed.

    Yakuza: Dead Souls is a fun departure for the Yakuza series, but it's hindered by some pretty lousy controls, a temperamental camera and a few other odds and ends.

    I might not be the biggest soccer fan in the world, but I love the depiction of it in FIFA Street. Action stays close, the game's modes feel incredibly varied and it's an intense version of the sport.

    Crush 3D has intriguing game mechanics and concepts, but the execution of the entire package makes the game feel like more of an overextended tutorial than a complete game.

    After playing Journey, I couldn't get it out of my head for days. Journey goes left, where every other game goes right; the game is a crafted experience that has been built with such care and attention that it easily transcends the label of "game" and expands into a broad, delightful experience.

    It might not have an epic story or complex characters, but it will serve your shooter needs. This game is a great showcase for what console-like games could be for the Vita. It has some great ideas, a few rough edges and shows a whole lot of promise for future games on the Vita.

    With no separate Story Mode and an Arcade mode that can be run through in under an hour, it is clear that Capcom's latest title has one purpose: Versus mode. When the game works, it is a fun experience. The absurd load times and dysfunctional online play, however, ruin the game's solid momentum, turning Street Fighter X Tekken into more of a headache than a memorable experience.

    MotorStorm RC is great blend of R.C. Pro-Am for the NES and Super Off-Road for the arcade, an action-racer that's both intense and fun.

    There's some deeper thought going on behind Binary Domain's cold, robot eyes and its themes and story take its action far beyond a generic shooter.

    I Am Alive is a strong game premise that really fails to launch. Its great mood and solid combat system are overcome with poor design choices and story that just goes nowhere. I can't recommend it to anyone but the most ardent of supporters or diehard fans of The Road or other destroyed world apocalyptic fiction.

    With its grand storytelling and enthralling gameplay, Mass Effect 3 doesn't just bring an epic trilogy to a close, it rivals the most revered space operas.

    The Mario Party series might be a bit long in the tooth, but it shouldn't be counted out; there have been enough tweaks and changes to keep things interesting and the minigames are as fun as ever.

    SSX
    The SSX series has been reinvented and revitalized in the best possible way.
    • 64 Metascore

    It's a gussied up, late 90s and early 2000s shooter, high on fun and low on pretention and cludgy mechanics. You'll pick up power-ups, gun down foes and that's about it. It's simple and fun with just the right mix of running and gunning.

    The perfection of Metal Gear Solid 3's stealth espionage gameplay is simply lost in its translation to the 3DS platform.

    Starbreeze Studios reboots a classic, real-time tactical game, turning it into a first-person shooter that doesn't manage to stand out within the saturated genre.

    Asura's Wrath wears its anime influences proudly on its sleeve and it is a better game for it.

    Grand Slam Tennis 2 is a collection of great ideas, but the focus feels a little too stretched and each individual feature is missing the hook it needs to keep the attention on it.

    For as great as Alan Wake's American Nightmare starts out, it ends in an unsatisfying, cliffhanger fashion. I loved the setting, loved the action, but felt Remedy didn't tell their story to the best of their abilities; confounding story twists, half-ideas and a quick resolution hold this game back from making an impact.

    It's blistering fast, pounds the pulse in all the right ways and scratches that racing itch.

    Touch My Katamari isn't a revolution for the series, but it does add enough odds and ends to keep the series (excuse me) rolling along. The quirky and bizarre visuals are still here, the solid gameplay persists and you'll still find rolling up sumo wrestlers funny. At least I do.

    The perfect party game. There is enough odd shit going on to keep the people waiting to play entertained and vehicle combat has never felt so good. The main reason Twisted Metal pulled this off is because it didn't try to reinvent itself for the next-gen consoles. The game knows what it did well in the past and brings all of that into the modern gaming world.
