8.7 / 10.0 - Pokemon X and Y
Oct 22, 2013

Pokémon X and Y is an enjoyable but uneven experience.

5.7 / 10.0 - Sonic: Lost World
Nov 8, 2013

It is an unfortunate reminder of the struggles of 21st century Sonic titles and may have started a new cycle of series mediocrity.

7.5 / 10.0 - Super Motherload
Nov 17, 2013

Super Motherload does exactly what it sets out to do: create a fun little digging game that belies its dark storyline.

While series enthusiasts might find Batman and his utility belt a bit lacking due to the absence of certain gadgets and the lack of a proper leveling system, the item based progression and good amount of upgrades for Batman's gadgets, suit, and gauntlets do just about enough to make up for it during the 10-11 hour main story.

8.4 / 10.0 - Resogun
Nov 18, 2013

It's a great game that only really suffers from not featuring enough levels.

Need For Speed Rivals is decently fun, but marred by underwhelming presentation, an insanely stupid story, unfair AI, and repetition.

4.8 / 10.0 - Knack
Nov 24, 2013

Knack has a few good ideas scattered throughout, but it is never able to pick up the pieces.

If you have enough friends with the 3DS or 2DS, Mario Party: Island Tour becomes a fun title that's probably worth picking up. But if your social group lacks the necessary hardware or interest, the game becomes a barren experience that can only hold your interest for a short time.

The gunplay is uninspired and the multiplayer has been detrimentally cut down, but the presentation is truly something to behold for console gamers.

8 / 10 - Dead Rising 3
Nov 27, 2013

Dead Rising 3 is one of the deserved stars of the launch line up, despite the fact that it leaves plenty of room for improvement and there are minor flaws abound.

6.2 / 10.0 - Ryse: Son of Rome
Nov 28, 2013

Ryse is a rather short, repetitive, beautiful game that is going to be a tough sell for many while others will adore it.

It is a grand game in its own right and deserves its place alongside the best in its franchise.

Super Mario 3D World is yet another instant classic from Nintendo.

When the story is this abysmal and the multiplayer is this stagnant, there's really no reason to buy what basically amounts to a $60 multiplayer map pack, even if it does come with fifteen maps.

There are not many games I feel compelled to return to after reviewing them, but Lego Marvel Super Heroes is the rare exception.

8.6 / 10.0 - Tearaway
Dec 15, 2013

Tearaway isn't the best platformer ever made, but it's quite possibly the happiest one, with a bright paper craft world that brings you in and a narrative that pulls at the heart strings.

8.3 / 10.0 - NBA 2K14
Dec 15, 2013

Sets a strong foundation from which to build on for the rest of the new hardware cycle.

6.6 / 10.0 - Tiny Brains
Dec 19, 2013

Tiny Brains is a solid puzzle game and a lot of fun with friends, but the high price, lack of puzzle variety, and short length hold it back from the PSN greats.

As great as the characters are, as absorbing as the choices and moral directions continue to be, the series is in danger of becoming formulaic.

8.2 / 10.0 - Nidhogg
Jan 17, 2014

It was a long time coming, but NIDHOGG doesn't fail to impress, even after four years of waiting.
