A title like this can be easily overlooked with a discounted price, featuring a sport perhaps many do not know much about and no real marketing push but MXGP is actually a pretty thorough exhibition of the sport of MXGP. It's decidedly more realistic take on the sport of MXGP may not endear fans looking for a more over the top MX vs ATV like experience but fans of the sport of motocross should enjoy this.

While Tiny Trooper: Joint Ops has some neat ideas perhaps my biggest criticism is that I didn't find myself overly compelled to return to it. It can be a fun diversion but lacks that "just one more level" sense of attraction.

Overall, it remains a good game play experience. . . . It's more average than definitive.

87 / 100 - Velocity 2X
Sep 15, 2014

Velocity 2X is the type of game that's extremely difficult to put down once you start. There's little if anything to complain about. Velocity 2X hits the old school game play feel just right, the graphics are stylish and the sound track fits perfectly

77 / 100 - The Golf Club
Sep 1, 2014

I wasn't sure at first but eventually I really warmed to The Golf Club. At the end of the day, game play trumps presentation here. Excellent swing mechanics make the actual act of playing golf in The Golf Club quite enjoyable and the social and online features are abundant and fun. These things outweigh the technical hiccups.

95 / 100 - Watch Dogs
May 27, 2014

Regardless of price point I guarantee you will get full value for your dollar with this game. I struggled to find any significant faults. Watch Dogs gets about as close to a perfect score that I'm comfortable giving. If you are on the fence about this game, don't be. This is the game that makes spending that hard earned money on a next-generation console worth it.

65 / 100 - Cel Damage HD
May 6, 2014

Remakes of games are tough to score. Without major changes, a remake of a mediocre game is only going to score so well. The source material being what it is, Finish Line has done well.

65 / 100 - LEGO The Hobbit
Apr 25, 2014

The similarity of the various dwarf characters can prove to be a challenge. The sheer number of dwarves in Thoromir's party and their similarities in Lego form makes finding the right character with the right ability for any particular task more difficult than it probably should be. I do not discount my unfamiliarity with the movies being a contributing factor here but in the other Lego games I've played, character designs are varied enough for this not to be an issue. There's really only so much detail you can put on a Lego character yet there's no mistaking R2D2 with an Ewok, is there?

While the majority of motion control games seem be best suited for party play, KSR takes the genre beyond party play with its Hub, online features and equally compelling single player experience. Wrap it all up in a sharp, colourful package that is priced right and you have a winner.

80 / 100 - Strider
Feb 25, 2014

Fan or not, you needn't worry about getting your money's worth here. Strider strikes a good balance of old school coin-op difficulty and all the modern day trimmings. Double Helix has crafted a reimagining that plays as well as it is steeped in respect for its content material.

50 / 100 - NBA Live 14
Dec 4, 2013

It gets some parts (such as Big Moments) right while other parts don't appear to be fully baked. I can't help but wonder if it would have been better for the series to have skipped the launch season in favour of a a game truly worth of the next-gen tag next year.
