Banished is a game that you can pick up and play and then drop in a minute to go do real life tasks. You can largely play the game on your own terms and in your own style, which is wonderful. The goals in front of you are flexible enough to allow for creativity while concrete enough to give you a sense of accomplishment.
While its current value is questionable, Reaper of Souls will most likely maintain a higher value than most games over the long run. And if Diablo III has as long of a life as its predecessor, then the few extra dollars spent now will have been a wise investment.
Rare kind of dropped the ball with Kinect Sports Rivals. It's not very fun to play, outside of jet ski racing, and the fact you have to wade through so much just to get to free play is tedious. Casual players probably won't mind trying out this Olympiad, but other players may want to stick to the more general – and less expensive – Xbox 360 collections.
At full price Daylight is only $15, so some of its shortcomings can be forgiven. Unfortunately, it can't be denied that after the first short playthrough the game can quickly devolve into tense tedium. There isn't enough in the game to encourage the repeated visits that would allow the procedural generation to shine.
Unfortunately, Amazing Spider-Man 2 is far from Beenox's greatest effort. There are times that the superhero feeling is definitely there, but then we're brought right back down to Earth by annoying Peter Parker segments and bothersome glitches. The curse of the movie-licensed game strikes again. Here's hoping that we see something better once the next Spider-Man game hits the market.
