The random nature of so many of Rogue Wizards' elements guarantees experiences that are dynamic, but the repetitive core gameplay and tedium of inventory management can also make them monotonous. The Story mode's narrative doesn't add anything to make the gameplay more compelling, so you may be better off with the Gauntlet mode's endless dungeon. Either way, this game works best in casual play sessions.

I really wanted to love this game, I really did. They have some really great concepts with fun gameplay, but it's obvious this game just isn't quite complete. I really wish the developers had spent a little more time with Rising Islands. This game could have really become something great, and that's the biggest disappointment of all.

This game simply should have stayed on PC. With its confusing control scheme and burdensome cursor navigation, it was never destined for consoles. I imagine that the game's success on PC made it a pretty safe bet to make some money on consoles (and I'm sure that with the initial $40 price it did just that), but it simply doesn't port well.

I fondly remember playing NBA Live 2005. The addition of the All-Star Weekend Dunk Contest was the hype. The gameplay felt smooth. It was quite intuitive and not overly complicated. What does any of this have to do with NBA Live 15? Let's just say that the reintroduction of NBA Live might have been a mistake on EA's part.

Crossfire X is a game truly of two halves and while neither is going to blow you away, it's a shame that two decent single player campaigns are completely let down by a lacklustre Multiplayer offering.

Riders Republic is an exhilarating open world extreme sports game with a lot of little issues that build up over time. It's lackluster character creator and insistence on interrupting the flow quickly grows tiresome.  If you're a fan of Steep, Riders Republic is undoubtedly for you. If you're not though, you can probably wait to play this game.

Mario Golf: Super Rush is a frustrating game from a frustrating developer. Camelot seems to have learned nothing from Mario Tennis Aces’ poor launch, and with future updates promised, it seems they aim to fix Super Rush’s flaws through content updates. Make no mistake – Mario Tennis Aces is a better title than Mario Golf: Super Rush, but perhaps Super Rush will follow in its footsteps once again and turn into a better game in a couple of months. For now, this is a title with great ideas that are held back by amateurish development choices.

Despite its many shortcomings, Far From Home VR is very much worth checking out, especially for the low price of free.

Sairento Untethered is a nice bite-sized version of the critically-acclaimed PCVR shooter. It's very light on content, only having five maps, but the complex movement system and vast and varied arsenal of weapons create a very high skill ceiling that will definitely keep players coming back for more. Progression and loot are disappointing overall, but mastering the locomotion mechanics provides a sense of accomplishment that few games can. Despite a substantial graphical downgrade and having only a handful of levels, Sairento's gameplay is enough to merit a few hours of fun.

Despite it’s shortcomings, the game is still somewhat entertaining, and I’m hoping Supermassive will knock the next entry of this spooky anthology out of the park.

Ultimate Alliance 3 is a fun but forgettable romp through Marvel's most iconic locations. Combat is simplistic, the level design is uninspired, and the game gets repetitive very quickly, but the satisfying sound design and bright, flashing colors provide enough of a distraction to provide at least a few hours of fun. This is a game for Marvel fans, and those without a strong attachment to these characters will struggle to find enjoyment in Ultimate Alliance 3.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 brings back the nostalgia by giving you all eight Mega Man X games. As far as that aspect is concerned, the collection hits things on all cylinders and brings to you a great gaming experience. The abysmal attempt at extra content really makes this an average collection rather than something special. If you're going to buy this, it should be for the eight X games and not for the extra content even though the extra content is good enough to play through once.

Despite all of its glaring short comings, Mario Tennis Aces is close to something great. If the core gameplay was balanced, it would earn a 4/5 despite a lackluster single player campaign and terrible UI. Future updates could make the game great, but right now Aces is like a talented professional too lazy to put in the work needed to crack the Top 30.

When I get a WayForward Technologies game in my hands, I usually know I'm in for a treat. Except this time around I was really disappointed with what they had to offer. A generic Metroidvania-styled game, based on the failed Mummy reboot and completely devoid of any enjoyment. The gameplay is boring, the story is uninspiring and for the first time ever, I had to force myself to complete a WayForward title.

Agents of Mayhem should be a good game, however it seems like Deep Silver wanted to do another Saints Row game and did things that way instead. Unlike when Capcom did this with Resident Evil and created the great Devil May Cry series, Deep Silver just made a Saints Row game with a different label on it. You'd think that after so many games in that series that we would get something different, but we didn't.

Get Even is not a bad game. In fact, there are moments where its storytelling and atmosphere really shine. However, it is held back by its gunplay, stealth, and at times an overly complicated plot. I felt relieved when all the pieces came together and the ultimate mystery revealed itself, but that doesn't excuse the confusion I had during much of the game. Perhaps the complex story could be forgiven if the game was a little more fun. It's unfortunate because there are elements of a good game in Get Even, but ultimately it tries to do too many things and only succeeds at a few of them.

Has-Been Heroes isn't a bad game, but I wasn't excited to start over after my first loss. After coming to understand the mechanics and strategy better, I am enjoying it to some degree, but I don't feel any less frustrated every time I lose. The only thing driving me to play more is my inner completionist, but if you're looking for a game with a compelling story and more to it than just unlocking more in-game items and spells, then this might not be the title for you.

That said, for nostalgia fans, you're right at home. Sadly, this game doesn't even match up to Double Dragon II, which is 28 years older and still holds up. Still, nostalgia will only get you so far. Double Dragon IV definitely had some potential as a throwback to the late 1980's of gaming. Sadly, there's no enough substance to give Jimmy and Billy the return they deserved. I wanted greatness, I got mildly ok. Stick with Double Dragon II, III or even Double Dragon Neon.

Though a serviceable enough intergalactic trip for anyone looking to play a multiplayer shooter on their 3DS, there's absolutely nothing memorable about this by-the-numbers entry into a hallowed franchise. The bite-sized missions lack balance, easily overcome with a quartet, frustratingly difficult done solo. The familiar action and time-worn objectives are quite playable, but the mediocre gameplay inspires little reason to return to the planet surface.
