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.
A killer app for Sony's console, or an all-too-familiar racing formula? Driveclub is solid, but it's not a killer experience.
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.
Wasteland 2 is genuine fun, packed with enough lore to make you want to keep exploring and adventuring, well past your bedtime.
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.
Most racing sims are all about getting somewhere quickly, but Forza Horizon 2 is filled with moments where you can enjoy the scenery and culture surrounding the cars.
FIFA 15 is easily the most realistic soccer game out there, even if it at times feels a bit over-the-top.
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.
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 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.
