If Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash were a book, it would have the cover of an epic novel and the pages of a children’s book. What was billed as a fun and engaging Mario sports game is lacking in both, and instead presents a shallow game that takes all of twenty minutes to fully experience. In a year where Nintendo seemed to make massive strides, delivering a major new IP and finally showing some understanding of how DLC can make games better, Mario Tennis Ultra Smash serves as an unwanted reminder of how Nintendo used to work.

Though impressive in some ways, The Order: 1886 fails miserably in its most important goal of keeping the player entertained for any significant length of time.
Sometimes he's a werehog, sometimes he's smooching human girls, and in Sonic Jump Fever, he's jumping up an endless series of platforms while begging for your money.
Mutants: Genetic Gladiators is a free-to-play title that doesn't shy away from the immediate money grab. Depending on your love of mutants, this is a flaw that you'll either deal with or completely skip altogether.
The addictiveness of endless runners stems from presenting players with the greatest obstacle they could ever hope to overcome- themselves.
Taking pills in the magnitude that Intake: Be Aggressive presents can result in a few adverse effects mixed in with its original therapeutic intent.
Zombie. Ninja. Cyborg. When coming up with the concept for Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, it seems like the development team over at Tecmo Koei were just reaching for whatever pop culture trends they could find and merged them together to create their new hack and slash. This spin-off of the unforgiving, but rewarding, Ninja Gaiden series features a new hero, new look, and drastically different gameplay, but it forgot to include the one thing the previous Ninja Gaiden games had: fun.
Tanglers Blitz is a free-to-play app that is filled with colorful aliens that need to be collected by the touch of your fingers. It's a supremely easy game to master, and within seconds you'll understand the game's entire universe. Predictability can work its magic with certain titles, and with Tanglers Blitz a little bit can really go a long way.
The second of four planned add-ons for Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3, Fallen Angel takes us on a journey with Angel, a member of the resistance struggling to fend of the military and zombies. While her story is quite different from previous DLC protagonist Adam Kane's, it's still just more of the same.
Every year there’s a number of card games that come out, with each one determined to make a mark. Kahuna has risen up in the ranks as a card game, but the iPhone/iPad version still needs a bit of work done in the technical department in order to let players enjoy the application.
