Capcom's attempt to revitalize the Dead Rising series, by giving it contemporary Western-style controls and gameplay, strips the title of the rough charm that made previous zombie-killing installments joyous experiences.

Boasting unlocked frame rates and drastically reduced load times, this zombie-bashing good time plays better than its original Xbox 360 release. Unfortunately, the game still suffers from old bugs and exploitable AIs.

ReCore is a solid action-adventure platformer with fun, interesting ideas established at the forefront. However, those ideas wither over time because of the game's repetition and weak story.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for Windows 10 takes a great title and makes it even better. Despite a few small oversights, the updated mechanics and visuals produce the best way to experience the original Gears game—if you have an Nvidia video card.

Volume has an intriguing story and fun stealth techniques, but the game's repetitive mission structure and easy-to-evade enemies keep it from being one of the genre's standout titles.

RymdResa is an experience of the mind, a soothing adventure into the depths of the dark, lonesome vastness of space. This game is a thought provoking visual treat unlike any other we've played.

Adventures of Pip is a fun, ambitious action-platformer with an original concept, but it has a frustrating power-up system and sparse (though excellent) music.

Axiom Verge delivers one of the better experiences in the oversaturated Metroidvania genre, but if you've played a NES/SNES Metroid title, then you've played Axiom Verge. The game's plenty fun, but it fails to carve out a distinct
