Fans of turn-based strategy and tabletop games will want to give Blood Bowl 2 a shot, but a muddled presentation limits the broader appeal among gamers and holds this game back from becoming a standout title.
Samurai Warriors 4-II is an excellent addition to the Warriors franchise, but could have done with a bit more change to differentiate itself from its predecessor.

Without online co-op, Super Motherload falls a bit short of gaming greatness, but the marriage of entrancing sound and gameplay is still a fun experience.
