7.8 / 10.0 - Worms W.M.D
Aug 26, 2016

Worms WMD is a dependable soldier when it comes to laugh-out-loud competitive warfare. It may not have flashy 3D graphics or big-budget actors reenacting huge battles, but its cartoony 2D conflicts are a fun way to test your combat prowess with some weird and wacky weapons.

Much like you'd see in a seedy 1980s movie, Trials of the Blood Dragon is like a pretty good first hit of a drug. The buzz is short and mostly enjoyable, but it's so different that you might get hooked on the series. It's got a great gateway due to the story's ties to Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, the flashy neon art, the constant pop-culture references, and fantastic techno score. Just realize that the shooting is bad and that you may come down from this high way earlier than you'd expect. But if this is your first Trial, know that there's lots more to consume.

Even with a super-short running time, the repetitiveness that pervades Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan makes this fight a slog. I've heard all the jokes the team has to tell and have marveled enough at the rogues gallery of bosses – both of which I could’ve done by watching this game on YouTube rather than playing it – so I'm not planning another trip to Manhattan.

Unscored - Battleborn
May 2, 2016

I've enjoyed most of Battleborn's campaign during my initial playthrough, though it's mostly due to the handiwork of the insane playable characters than the drab enemies and stages. The unlocks both near (in-match leveling) and far (unlocking new characters) have kept me anticipating each new campaign level attempt, though I wish said campaign were just a bit more exciting and varied. Hopefully some time with competitive multiplayer will make my upgrades and unlocks come even faster.

Under its attractively bright and cartoony art style, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 has a great amount of modes and customization options to enjoy, whether alone against the AI or with online allies and enemies. The interesting abilities options of the six new character classes gave me something to sink my teeth into, and the customization options are a great reward for playing outside my comfort zone. The sheer amount of enjoyment in this full garden will keep me in the war for some time to come.

8.8 / 10.0 - SteamWorld Heist
Dec 16, 2015

Steamworld Heist stole my heart. The characters are charming, the combat is addictive, and the Firefly-style adventure made every battle a blast. Besides some annoying instances of post-battle maintenance, I rarely felt the need to power down these robots.

7.6 / 10.0 - PlanetSide 2
Jun 26, 2015

PlanetSide 2's massive-scale multiplayer warfare takes some getting used to, but it's a battle well worth fighting.

7.6 / 10.0 - LEGO Jurassic World
Jun 22, 2015

LEGO Jurassic World's puzzles and combat keep up a great pace that get you past annoyances and back to the fun quickly.

4.9 / 10.0 - R.B.I. Baseball 15
Apr 8, 2015

RBI Baseball 15 slightly improves on RBI 14's biggest faults, but game-breaking bugs make us want to charge the mound.

It's a shame that more significant improvements weren't made to Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered, since playing both sides of a murder conspiracy is still such an interesting concept that's not often done right. However, the frantic button prompts, still-stupid stealth, and newly-introduced glitches make this Remaster way too unrefined.

6.4 / 10.0 - Loadout
Jan 2, 2015

Loadout's fast-paced shooting is worth a free download, but you might not want to crack your PSN wallet to progress.

7.4 / 10.0 - Kalimba
Dec 15, 2014

Kaimba isn't much to look at, but the clever puzzle-platforming is charming all its own.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is an excellent action-puzzler adventure, whether you play solo or co-op.

7 / 10.0 - WWE 2K15
Nov 16, 2014

WWE 2K15 looks better and hits harder on new-gen, but some key omissions keep it from reaching the main-event.

7.8 / 10.0 - Costume Quest 2
Oct 29, 2014

Costume Quest 2 improves on the first's combat and funny campaign, but the health and navigation systems need a revamp.

6.8 / 10.0 - Gauntlet
Sep 26, 2014

Gauntlet pays faithful homage to the '85 original, but doesn't bring the replay value expected in the post-coin-op era.

6.5 / 10.0 - Minimum
Sep 19, 2014

Minimum's style is surprisingly engaging, but the imbalanced combat will have you swinging swords or flinging s-words.

5.2 / 10.0 - Risen 3: Titan Lords
Aug 12, 2014

It's fun to fight in Risen 3: Titan Lords, but other important elements of the experience fall far short of acceptable.

A good Transformers game has good transforming and good robot-blasting. Rise of the Dark Spark has neither.

EA Sports UFC boasts incredibly detailed fighters and great combat. However, this debut effort from a new publisher lacks the single-player balance and the variety of modes that previous UFC games brought to the ring.
