What a week with Madden's new features and obsessive details did for my love-hate relationship with my childhood team.
Lara Croft's latest adventure delivers a satisfying action game that also brings back some the puzzle solving and tomb raiding that the series cut its teeth on, even if it's a bit easier than what loyalists might be used to.
The latest entry in the Call of Duty series is all about cybernetic soldiers, increased mobility, and zombies.
It has all the usual "toys-to-life" bugbears, but Lego Dimensions is packed with great characters, clever puzzles and a physical experience you won't get anywhere else.
FIFA 16 continues its solid track record by improving on an already winning formula and introducing Women's International Teams for the very first time.
Lego Jurassic World freshens up the formula. You can insert your own bone-related pun here.
Battlefield Hardline takes the fight to the streets, but does this new episodically framed first-person shooter take the series in a welcome direction?
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.
Dragon Age Inquisition isn't perfect -- but pretty close and very easily the best in the series by a wide margin.
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.
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 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.
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.
With just the right amount of brutality and craziness, Wolfenstein: The New Order is a genuine good-old Nazi-killing time.
Child of Light is a brave move from a mainstream developer, and one that hopefully heralds a new way forward.
Black Flag is arguably the most accessible and open-world Assassin's Creed game to date even if it comes with some repetitive gameplay and frustrating difficulty.
