Once again Lego has produced a fantastic game that is sure to please the Lego and Star Wars fans alike. Travel through space as you play as some of your favorite Star Wars characters, as well as some of the iconic Force Awakens vehicles like the Millennium Falcon and Rey’s Speeder. There were a few moments that I felt as if the story was not moving fast enough. I feel that is because of several reasons.
Rating Summary: This is an action-adventure game based on the characters and events of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie. Players control Lego-versions of characters as they traverse platform environments, solve puzzles, and battle enemy soldiers and villains. Players use various weapons (e.g., staffs, blaster rifles, light sabers) and special abilities (e.g., force powers) to defeat enemies. In some sequences, players pilot spacecrafts/vehicles and use a crosshair target to fire projectiles (e.g., missiles, lasers) at enemy vehicles and ground targets. Battles are accompanied by frequent laser blasts and large explosions; enemies burst into Lego pieces when defeated. In one scene, a character is briefly seen sitting on a toilet; another sequence depicts mucous dripping from a character's nose. The word “hell” is heard in the dialogue.
Rated for Blood and gore, Violence. This is a role-playing game in which players assume the roles of heroes on a quest to rid the world of evil magic. From a ¾-overhead perspective, players traverse landscapes and engage in turn-based combat to kill humans and fantastical creatures (e.g., orcs, giant insects). Characters use swords, staffs, spears, and magic attacks to kill enemies. Combat is highlighted by frequent screams of pain, impact sounds, and large blood-splatter effects. Some areas depict large pools of blood amid human corpses and dismembered limbs.

Genre: Toys to Life
Activision was the first company to introduce the Toys to Life genre to the world with Skylanders and each year they find a way to reinvent the formula and release a new entry in the popular game. This year, that innovation is vehicles: Land, Air, and Sea. The addition of vehicles may not seem to be huge but it really does add a lot to the game.

Bandits, and griffins, and witches! OH MY! These are a few foes you will encounter in this epic tale of mystery, adventure, and romance. Geralt of Rivia returns to find his missing protégé while ridding the towns of bandits and scary monsters along the way. WARNING! This review is that of my own opinion and should be noted any previous games involving the title Witcher have not been played; therefore, giving me an unbiased and open opinion.

ESRB Details: Rated For Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Nudity, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Alcohol
This is an open-world role-playing game in which players assume the role of Geralt, a monster hunter in search of a missing woman. Players explore a war-ravaged world while completing quests and killing enemy soldiers and fantastical creatures (e.g., wraiths, harpies, rock beasts). Characters engage in melee-style combat using swords and other bladed weapons, as well as magical attacks (e.g., blasts of fire, stun spells); combat is highlighted by screams of pain and impact sounds. Large blood-splatter effects occur when enemies are slashed, with some attacks resulting in decapitation or dismemberment. Some cutscenes depict slow-motion decapitations and other gore: an autopsy of a torture victim, rooms with several corpses (e.g., hanging from the ceiling, covered in blood on a bed, naked in a tub). During the course of the game, the central character can engage in sexual activity with prostitutes and female companions. These brief sequences depict females' breasts and buttocks—sexual moaning sounds can be heard, though the camera cuts away from explicit sexual acts. The game includes a side quest in which Geralt engages in a drinking game; characters are depicted drunk and/or passed out. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “c*nt” can be heard in the dialogue. Tags:

When you have Keiji Inafune, the father and Co-Creator of Mega Man, involved in a project, people tend to take notice. Such is the case with Mighty No. 9. This game was a Kickstarter project that raised nearly 4 million dollars by over 67,000 fans. And soon fans across the globe will be able to get their hands on a action platformer that is challenging and rewarding.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, there was a Toys to Life game that was caught up in a war against the evil Sith and the Empire. This struggle spanned over several playsets and brought the entire cast of Star Wars characters together. Other characters from the Disney universe also join in the fun like Inside Out, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, and more!
