All in all, the Star Wars Pinball: The Force Awakens pack is a polished Zen Pinball experience worthy of any pinball fans library.

69 / 100 - Need for Speed
Nov 3, 2015

Need for Speed is not a horrible game, but it is definitely not the amazing 'reboot' experience I was looking for.

Slow loading areas, frame rates dropping and gameplay becoming sluggish when you summon a batch of minions added to the lackluster experience.

44 / 100 - Extreme Exorcism
Oct 14, 2015

The unbalanced multiplayer, uninspiring music and repetitive gameplay are just a few of the more significant issues that dragged the entire experience down. Sadly, Extreme Exorcism is going straight to the graveyard for me.

60 / 100 - Pumped BMX +
Sep 28, 2015

Pumped BMX+ is a sharp looking title with controls that are some of the best for this genre after you get through the learning curve. However, we have a lackluster soundtrack and repetitive game play that perhaps should have branched out into something new rather than keep the mold of short game play experiences on mobile devices.

The concerns I had when I played Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime at an Xbox event several months ago have been put to rest as this is a fantastic co-op experience.

I want to say this title was a good attempt but maybe it should have spent a bit more time on the drawing board.

What I can't understand though is that games that scream online multiplayer don't always get the online functionality, and if online was added here it could have turned this good game into a fairly amazing one. Regardless, Extra Innings is a solid game to sit on the couch and play with some friends and family as you'll have fun doing so.

45 / 100 - No Time to Explain
Aug 3, 2015

There are redeeming qualities in No Time to Explain, such as the music and some of the character designs, but the rest of it doesn't translate well to console. The controls are sluggish and impractical while the majority of the visuals could use some more oomph too. At the end of the day, if you are not a DIE HARD (caps for emphasis) fan of retro type games, I think you'd best stay away from this title as the negatives outweigh the positives.

80 / 100 - Quiplash
Jul 13, 2015

It would be a whole lot easier in a party situation to navigate all of the titles in one interface rather than two, or even more if they launch some other titles. That being said, it doesn't take away from the fun that can be had in this title, and the enormous amount of laughs, as Quiplash is a solid party game that any fan of the genre should add to their collection. - See more at: http://canadianonlinegamers.com/review/quiplash-review/#sthash.gSYUQ8vO.dpuf

With a few finishing touches, some additional characters and a new difficulty mode, Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition stands as game fans of the series and newcomers alike should immensely enjoy. While Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition may not compel you to go back and play the other games in the series, on its own DMC4 Special Edition offers plenty of value for the buck.

65 / 100 - Lifeless Planet
May 29, 2015

I found that I enjoyed Lifeless Planet quite a bit after I spent a time with it and got past the frustrating aspects of the game. This title is 100% made for the 'niche-gamer' and won't appeal to a broader audience. This is evident with the level design frustrations early on, which will no doubt scare away some gamers from even playing past a certain point. Get past some of the rough patches though and there is some good to be found in this title, especially when it comes to the story driven narrative that takes you through this grand adventure.

80 / 100 - The Escapists
Feb 9, 2015

The Escapists is a great game that doesn't bust the bank and will give your hours of enjoyment as you plot, craft and deploy your plans for your great prison break. I could find little wrong with this game even with the old school graphics, which may not be everyone's cup of tea, as they don't distract from how fun this gem of a title it is. Keep in mind though if you don't have a whole lot of patience this game may not be for you as there are times that you have to do mundane things, which is a gameplay style that isn't for all gamers.

83 / 100 - #IDARB
Jan 22, 2015

Aside from the less than stellar implementation of the multiplayer #IDARB is a boat load of fun, easy to pick up and will have you laughing for hours. This Canadian made game manages to shine in nearly every department. It is a blast to play when you have some friends over for drinks as the hilarity is endless. Well done "Other Ocean Interactive" you have a winner on your hands.

Even with the expansion included, Magic: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2015 doesn't offer enough variety and makes it too difficult to progress through the game without feeling pressured to buy cards with physical money. What this game seems good for however are those people who might be interested in playing the actual physical card game.

81 / 100 - WWE 2K15
Nov 19, 2014

At the end of the day WWE 2K15 is a game that is worthwhile purchase for WWE fans and something that fighting game fans or sports entertainment fans may just want to take a close look at.

68 / 100 - Warframe
Sep 19, 2014

If you're looking for something to pass the time you could definitely pick this game up for free as you just might get a good chunk of time enjoying it, but I would definitely spend your money on a full-fledged title rather than having to pay in a free to play game for all the good bits.

Overall this game will find an audience, but to tell you the truth it's going to be a hit and miss affair if you will be the one that the game is meant for.

70 / 100 - Zoo Tycoon
Dec 10, 2013

After playing Zoo Tycoon I have to admit that it is quite time consuming, has a long learning curve and is more ideal on a PC platform compared to a console experience. That being said, it is a game that provides a robust zoo experience perfect for any zoo enthusiast, a veteran "sim" player, or perhaps even for a parent looking for a game without any violence whatsoever.
