5.2 / 10.0 - Defenders of Time
Nov 15, 2014

I would expect that, in a sea of tower defense games, that a tower defense game that someone charges you money for, would have a certain level of quality and finesse, especially since there are plenty of free tower defense games out there that do it really well. Defenders of Time, even with its pretty visuals and some redeeming game mechanics, can't stand well on its own, and is easily beat out by other free tower defense games with very difficult levels and shoddy multiplayer, this game is not a very good example of the tower defense genre.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel refreshes gameplay through some new mechanics and a whole new story, including a cast of familiar characters and brand new characters, while diving into the events that lead up to Borderlands 2. Fans of the series can look forward to plenty of new content and locations to explore, all while acquiring plenty of guns and equipment throughout, including a new weapon type and new equipment type. The game can feel focused on multiplayer at times, however the game is still a fun and enjoyable experience regardless, and will definitely give people the best bang for their buck, especially those who wish to know more about the Borderlands universe.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments delivers a good system for finding clues and solving murders with a complex clues and deductions system, plenty of puzzles to be had, and good mysteries to boot. The gameplay can be a bit repetitive at times, however if your willing to overlook that, it can turn into quite a mystery game. The visuals and art are sure to impress, and you can expect hours of content from this title, all with a unique moral system to track how you compare to others who play the game.

Overall this game does what it set out to do, and it does it well, giving both veterans of the series and new players a chance to experience some of the original magic of Total Annihilation, while keeping it fresh and extensive enough to create new battles and new war stories on a galactic scale to tell around the Real-Time Strategy campfire.

Final Fantasy: Theatrhythm Curtain Call is a fun little game that tries to mix in some pseudo-RPG elements into a rhythm game, which sort of works and sort of doesn't. Some of the design decisions, such as having to unlock the settings or the ability to unlock DLC, as well as what seems to be every button in the game seem a bit counter-intuitive, though that may give you a sense of progression in a weird way. Fans of the Final Fantasy games (especially the soundtracks) will enjoy this game, fans of Rhythm games can enjoy this game, and fans of both may thoroughly enjoy this game, especially longtime fans who have played many of the games and have a fondness towards the soundtracks.
