Wasteland 2 ( PC)

Wasteland 2 is genuine fun, packed with enough lore to make you want to keep exploring and adventuring, well past your bedtime.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor
REVIEW

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor ( PC)

Even if you aren't a fan of the Tolkien universe, Shadow of Mordor is a great-looking and ultra-satisfying action game filled with remarkable villains and countless memorable moments.

FIFA 15
REVIEW

FIFA 15 ( PlayStation 4)

FIFA 15 is easily the most realistic soccer game out there, even if it at times feels a bit over-the-top.

Destiny
REVIEW

Destiny ( PlayStation 4)

Destiny is a victim of the hype machine created around it. It's a refined console shooter that feels great during the action, but goes stale during just about every other component of the game.

NHL 15 Ultimate Edition
REVIEW

NHL 15 Ultimate Edition ( PlayStation 4)

Overall, NHL 15 is a bittersweet event. It regularly exudes shades of brilliance and heightened moments of action that truly captures the best parts of hockey. But alas, it's soiled by a harsh truth: NHL 15 is missing an awful lot of features.

The Wolf Among Us
REVIEW

The Wolf Among Us ( PC/Mac)

The Wolf Among Us is a stylish noir game with the Big Bad Wolf doing his best Philip Marlowe impression. And if that doesn't sell you on the game, not much else will.

Available on Steam:
$24.99

Microsoft Xbox One
REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox One ( without Kinect)

The cheaper, no-Kinect version of the Xbox One gives buyers a better deal by eliminating the one part of the console they probably didn't want to begin with -- but the PS4 remains a compelling alternative.

Watch Dogs
REVIEW

Watch Dogs ( PlayStation 4)

Watch Dogs manages to impress at times, but its overly ambitious promise is never fully realized. There's a lot of fluff baked into the experience that might leave some disappointed and wanting more.

Wolfenstein: The New Order
REVIEW

Wolfenstein: The New Order ( PC)

With just the right amount of brutality and craziness, Wolfenstein: The New Order is a genuine good-old Nazi-killing time.

Mario Kart 8
REVIEW

Mario Kart 8 ( Wii U)

Mario Kart 8 is a blast to play and is easy enough for almost anyone to pick up and enjoy. Its brilliantly designed tracks, inclusion of new weapons, and online refinements make it a no-brainer for Wii U owners.

Sony PlayStation Vita  Borderlands 2 Bundle
REVIEW

Sony PlayStation Vita Borderlands 2 Bundle ( 2000)

Two years in, the PlayStation Vita has come of age and become a refined piece of hardware and an excellent place to play a lot of games. You don't need one, but it's really fun and worth its price.

Microsoft Xbox One Forza Motorsport 5 Bundle
REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox One Forza Motorsport 5 Bundle

While the PS4 remains our overall preferred choice in the next-gen console race, the Xbox One's significant first-year course corrections -- including a welcome holiday price drop -- make it a better deal than ever, and a much better bargain than when it first debuted.

Grand Theft Auto V
REVIEW

Grand Theft Auto V ( PlayStation 3)

Grand Theft Auto V is an absolute triumph that fires on all cylinders. It's a relevant, witty, and satirical experience that's as smart as it is completely addicting.

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault
REVIEW

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault ( PlayStation 3)

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault's one and only competitive multiplayer mode is an enjoyable blend of action and tactics.

FIFA Soccer 13
REVIEW

FIFA Soccer 13 ( Wii U)

FIFA Soccer 13 on the Wii U might lack some of the series' latest tweaks, but it still plays an enjoyable and thoroughly rewarding game of football.

Scribblenauts Unlimited
REVIEW

Scribblenauts Unlimited ( Wii U)

Scribblenauts Unlimited continues the franchise's penchant for ridiculousness, though lackluster puzzles temper the excitement.

Assassin's Creed III's joyous blend of parkour and storytelling is enthralling, even when technical issues threaten to derail the fun.
