One of last year’s monster J-RPG hit Tales of Xillia has spawned a sequel, aptly titled Tales of Xillia 2. It’s a tall task for Xillia 2 given the massive success of its predecessor, and yet again a delayed offering for the English speaking market. Tales of Xillia 2 is a thoroughly polished and genuinely welcome title to the Tales series, but doesn’t quite hit the notes in the same way that Tales of Xillia did.

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is a re-release of the previously available Warriors Orochi 3 title and an update to the Wii U exclusive Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper, packing more extras and loads more punch over the original Warriors Orochi 3. The most comprehensive release for the Warriors Orochi series to date, there’s plenty to like about the Ultimate variation, particularly given this is the first time the series has emerged on next generation consoles.

inFAMOUS is back, well sort of. inFAMOUS: First Light is the latest release in the inFAMOUS franchise, a stand-alone prequel to the hugely successful inFAMOUS: Second Son of earlier this year. It’s a compact package that will entertain, although not to the full extent of Delsin’s larger, grander adventure.

Right from the outset, it’s clear that Team 17’s Flockers is set to be one strange ride. It’s not that its ideas are particularly wild or that it does anything notably new, but rather its oddities come from the fact that its various parts appear to be working against each other. Unfortunately, this issue goes far beyond the presentation and permeates the experience as a whole, making for a title that’s fun in spurts but ultimately tough to recommend.

Murdered: Soul Suspect Review

Murdered: Soul Suspect on paper appears infinitely promising with its premise, but doesn’t quite reach its potential. The gameplay is unique, as is the world of Salem where everything takes place but ultimately feels like a wasted opportunity. The game never drew me in to feel engaging, but isn’t entirely bad either. By the end of it all, my feelings towards Murdered: Soul Suspect was left in a state of limbo.

Magic: The Gathering returns for another year with the release of Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers. The previous iterations have built upon the past title, improving and adding new features to justify the annual release schedule, much like the trading card game with its constantly evolving meta game and diverse card line-up.

The Dynasty Warriors: Gundam franchise returns with Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn, the first title in the Dynasty Warriors: Gundam series to not adopt a numerical numbering system. It’s a case of familiar gameplay, catchy tunes and deceptively same old storylines, but scratch the surface a little and you’ll find the most comprehensive Dynasty Warriors: Gundam experience to date.

The Game Bakers’ Squids series has already carved success on the mobile platform with the original Squids and Squids: Wild West. It seems only natural progression for a title with lush visuals and kooky character design receives a port on to the Nintendo Wii U platform. Tweaked for gaming consoles, Squids Odyssey retains its charm, with a gentle helping of features for first time calamari adventurers.

Atelier Rorona receives a shiny remake with Atelier Rorona Plus, re-designed to fix the flaws fans have complained about since the original was released back in 2010. Rorona was; and still remains an exceptional title in the Atelier series, but it had it fair share of issues. Four years on, Rorona Plus scrubs up nicely thanks to some love and care by developer Gust, who has also ported the J-RPG to the PS Vita for the first time.

Watch Dogs is the most anticipated game of the year, breaking pre-order sales records following a string of delays which left fans with an insatiable appetite for the open world hacking adventure. With so much potential to build upon the genre, Watch Dogs does a commendable job but falls painfully short of being a genre-defining title.
