Forza has some major problems, but the core gameplay is as good as ever.

Just like it did on Xbox 360, Dead Rising 3 stands out as one of the first memorable titles on a new Xbox console.

Aside from some skinned knees earned by stumbles through the story, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is a great starting point for this generation's big Metal Gear Solid experience. I'm more excited than I might've been otherwise for The Phantom Pain. With that in mind, it would be a lie if I didn't say that The Phantom Pain, appropriately named in this case, haunts every corner of this game. Everything feels like a taste of what is to come. Call it a demo or a prologue, it isn't a full game.

Parts of the game don't work, but they don't take away from what it's trying to do.

Machine Games mixed an old school shooter with interesting, well-written characters to make something that adds up to more than the sum of its parts.
