Just Dance Kids 2014 Review


Families everywhere celebrate; Just Dance Kids 2014 has just been released and is a quality title for parents looking to get their kids up and moving. I am a father of 5 so when the Just Dance series decided to put out Just Dance Kids, I was very happy with the decision. It’s “safer” song selection mixed with the fantastic gameplay of the Just Dance series makes this video game a no brainer for families looking for a great dance title.

Just Dance 2014 Review


Another year and another Just Dance video game has arrived at retail. As with previous Just Dance games, players are judged on their ability to mimic on-screen dancers performing a routine to a chosen song and will have a blast doing it. The series is known for its undeniable fun gameplay and this year’s version is no exception. Minor tweaks here and there to the already proven formula make this game instantly accessible and entertaining.

Rayman Legends Review


Rayman Legends is platforming greatness. The standard definition of perfection is as follows: The condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects. While that may be the standard definition as we know it in the English language, the dictionary can now replace it with 2 words; Rayman Legends. Not only is this game beautiful; not only is the game amazing; it is one of the greatest titles of all time and deserves your attention.

Pikmin 3 Review


Pikmin 3 is a system seller. The game is a gorgeous achievement on Nintendo’s latest home console and joins the Wii U library as an essential title for the system. If you have yet to play a Pikmin title, this is a perfect point of entry and proves that once Nintendo finds its core concept, they will prefect it until its flawless. Pikmin 3 is a bright spot that shines on the Wii U and has a undeniable charm that Nintendo often delivers.

Tomb Raider Review

The all new Tomb Raider is a shining example of how a reboot to a series should be done. Not only does the new Tomb Raider meet my high expectations for this title, it shattered them and brought Lara Croft back from the brink of obscurity. The new reboot is near flawless and is a true testament to the team at Crystal Dynamics.

New Super Mario Bros. U Review

Something strange happened to me while playing the New Super Mario Bros for Wii U. Within the first opening hour of the game I was transported to my younger days of gaming and felt pure joy while playing the title.

I will fully admit that when Nintendo announced that a New Super Mario title was headed to Wii U, I was a bit disappointed to learn that the game would not be in 3D. After an hour or so of playing this all new Mario adventure, all those fears were erased and what was left was a very fun video game.
