Sine Mora Review
Sine Mora is a side scrolling shoot'em up title that borrows heavily from past titles in the genre such as the cult classic Einhander. The premise involves war torn characters battling a bigger threat as you shoot down enemies and gigantic bosses in your little plane. Although at its core it's a shoot'em up game, the title makes heavy use of time travel and time altering mechanics in both its gameplay and story which creates a strong interaction between the two elements.

Nexuiz Review
For a game that prides itself on offering an alternative in the multiplayer market, Nexuiz does an awful job of providing a consistent experience. More times than not, you will find yourself waiting for at least five minutes for the game to find other available players.

Final Fantasy V Review
In 1992, Final Fantasy V was released for the Super Famicom in Japan. Despite selling over two million copies, the game did not come stateside until it was released alongside Final Fantasy VI for the PSX as part of the Final Fantasy Anthology collection in January 1999. Since that release, the game has also been ported to the Game Boy Advance and is also now available for purchase in the Playstation Store.

Quarrel Review
Denki’s word game "Quarrel" fits under the handheld devices umbrella by first being made available for the iOS. However, months have passed since it was released on that platform and after having overcome extensive publishing difficulties, this little title, that will undoubtedly remind you of Scrabble, made its way onto Xbox Live last week.

Rochard Review
While the gaming community was feasting on blockbuster titles like Gears of War 3 and Arkham City, Recoil Games, a developer located in Finland, released a downloadable title for the Playstation 3 that flew under the radar. This game, title Rochard, fits in line with other puzzle games released throughout the year such as Portal 2 and Catherine. While sharing more in common with the former, Rochard still manages to forge a unique identity of its own while dealing with some gameplay issues throughout.

Crysis Review
Since its release in 2007, Crysis has become undoubtedly associated with its graphics. In fact, Crysis is arguably the de facto title for PC gamers to test their graphic cards against on a routine basis. Little is known about the title outside of the PC world. However, with the release of Crysis 2 on the PC, PS3, and XBox 360 in 2011, the proposed trilogy finally emerged into the limelight. Since that time, the original title has branched outside of its PC confines and is now available on both major consoles.

World Heroes Review
World of Heroes is an SNK arcade game that has recently been made available on PSN. The game is a port; however, there are some new features that differentiate it from its arcade-only counterpart. Despite additions like a competitive multiplayer mode and updated graphics, the game suffers from being a mediocre fighting game that comes across as a clone of more popular franchises like Street Fighter.

Shock Troopers Review
Shock Troopers is one of many different SNK arcade titles that are receiving a port to PSN. Porting older titles to both PSN and XBLA is hardly a new endeavor as the practice has been happening for a few years now on both platforms. With Shock Troopers and the other games the question remains how well does an older title with some new features hold up in today’s industry?

Section 8: Prejudice Review
Section 8: Prejudice has recently joined the trend of XBLA titles that are being ported to the PSN. Prejudice is a downloadable only follow up to Section 8. The first person shooter genre has not received all that much treatment in the downloadable market, which is strange because the short nature of shooter campaigns would seem to lend themselves to that segment. Due in part to a lack of downloadable competition and a summer drought of shooters, Section 8: Prejudice manages to be an overall enjoyable experience, most notably for its multiplayer, but also for the surprising 4-6 hour single player experience as well.

Limbo Review
Summer 2010 bore witness to a little-known title at the time known as Limbo, which acted as the headliner for XBLA’ s Summer Arcade line-up. At the time it received critical acclaim for both its simplicity and unique visual charm. It was only a matter of time until the game was ported to PSN. This week, this finally became reality, and so it is time to see if the game translated itself as well to a different console.

Lucha Fury Review
With the recent release of Trenched, Double Fine’s latest XBLA-only title, it can be easy to overlook the other titles that were released at the same time. Such is the case for Puncher Impacts' Lucha Fury. It is a shame that such titles are overlooked because they can possibly fly under the radar and gather a cult following. Other times no problems arise from the game being unnoticed because of the low overall quality, and such is the case for Lucha Fury.
