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.
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.
Evolve is a welcome evolution from the Turtle Rock Studios team and a refreshing kind of title that you likely haven't experienced before, introducing excellent four-versus-one action that can be enjoyed on- or offline.
Majora's Mask looks great on the 3DS, but if you've already had the pleasure, there's not much new content worth a second go.
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.
Fast and exciting strategic gameplay makes Kingdom Rush Origins a must-have pick for tower-defense fans.
WWE 2k15 is a hard game to recommend to someone who isn't a wrestling fan and it's not without its issues, but if you know the difference between an Enziguri and a Senton there's a lot of fun to be had.
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.
LittleBigPlanet 3 is a paradise for creativity that provides an impressive array of tools and possibilities. Its included adventure is fresh, and the new characters and items are a welcome evolution.
A significant update to 2013's game of the year just might be worth a replay.
Far Cry 4 borrows a lot from the last game, but it adds enough excitement, fresh ideas and a brilliant new landscape to warrant the return trip.
While it will likely suffice for Assassin's Creed core fans, Unity stumbles throughout and never really finds its footing. Where last year's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag saw the franchise reach new heights, Unity is somewhat of a sidestep that only shines sporadically.
Dragon Age Inquisition isn't perfect -- but pretty close and very easily the best in the series by a wide margin.
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.
While it should be reserved strictly for a mature audience, Bayonetta 2 is a masterful action game brimming with vibrant visuals and a larger-than-life presence.
Skylanders: Trap Team is a return to a simpler form, with new elements that prove the franchise is definitely around for the long haul.
Certainly an acquired taste, The Evil Within is sure to satiate the horror fanatic. For those with an appetite for an investment-heavy exploit through the mind of a madman, The Evil Within is more than capable, even with a few bumps along the way.
It's not the best Borderlands experience out there, but The Pre-Sequel is a solid entry that will satisfy Borderlands diehards most. If you've never played a Borderlands game though, try starting with Borderlands 2.
