The Order: 1886
REVIEW

The Order: 1886 ( PlayStation 4)

The Order: 1886 is a beautiful and impressive technical achievement, but it's also chock-full of frustrating control issues. Odd pacing and a less than compelling storyline don't help either.

Dying Light
REVIEW

Dying Light ( PlayStation 4)

There's fun to be had with Dying Light, but it's not going to breathe new life into a genre that's essentially on life support.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
REVIEW

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker ( Wii U)

It's not the meatiest offering that Nintendo games usually offer, but Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is totally accessible and undeniably fun to play. The games ends a little sooner than we expected and a few control scheme decisions have us wishing for more customization.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
REVIEW

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U ( Wii U)

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the total package that delivers on nearly every level. With a seemingly endless amount of replay value, Super Smash should be the one staple in every Wii U library.

Sunset Overdrive
REVIEW

Sunset Overdrive ( Xbox One)

Sunset Overdrive is thoroughly fun and offers a guilt-free, action-packed campaign. Both its styling and personality are impressively realized -- it's smart, and comically self-aware.

REVIEW

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS ( 3DS)

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is a blast to play, with an endless amount of value and variety packed inside, although at times the chaos can overwhelm that small screen.

REVIEW

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor
REVIEW

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor ( Xbox One)

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.

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.
