I expected Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics to be packed with content, and of course with 51 games it certainly is. But what I didn’t expect was how well done the overall package would be. This is a game collection that is both accessible and easy to pick up and play, yet surprisingly chock-full of enriching content like How to Play guides that will make you want to dive deeper into each of the games and learn about them as you do.
Any of the low-budget scenes or other technical shortcomings would be forgiven if — like the series — Doctor Who: The Edge of Time had a more engaging story and gave you more freedom to experience it. But it’s just too limiting and confining to ever capture the true Doctor Who magic.
Let’s Sing Country is a decent karaoke experience that’s well-produced and slick. And you don’t have to be a Country fan to have silly fun, crooning into your iPhone like a dorky George Strait. But the tiny number of tracks is a real downer, and put it this way, you’ll get through them long before the beer runs out (a much better measure of karaoke time, honestly). If this was a discount-priced game that would be fine, but for the price Let’s Sing Country should offer a lot more content … y’all.
How enjoyable you find L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files will partly depend on whether you’ve played the original game or not. Without a connecting narrative thread, the individual cases included in the VR version can seem random, and there are even a few odd references to the Black Dahlia case that will confuse newcomers although not enough to ruin the experience.
