    Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

    A simple, accessible, yet challenging fighter that features the brutal warriors of Mortal Kombat and DC's media icons.

    Mortal Kombat is a popular, well-known fighting game series known for its graphic violence and over-the-top gore. However, for this crossover with the DC Universe, the development team was forced to tone down the violenc... Read Full Review

    Dead or Alive: Dimensions

    An engaging story mode, fast combat, and tons of unlockable content makes Dimensions the best Dead or Alive yet.

    Dead or Alive: Dimensions was my most anticipated title on the 3DS when the new handheld was first announced and when I finally got the game, I wasn't disappointed. To start, the combat is very fast-paced, like DOA shoul... Read Full Review

    Persona 4

    If Final Fantasy X holds the gold, then Persona 4 holds the platinum! Better than FFX and Kingdom Hearts II.

    Hardly the best KOF, but still entertaining and true to the main KOF series.

    King of Fighters: Maximum Impact

    Hardly the best KOF, but still entertaining and true to the main KOF series.

    KOF: Maximum Impact is not the pinnacle of the King of Fighters series, with graphics barely topping the PS1 and a relatively cliched plot, but the core gameplay, fortunately enough, hasn't been dumbed down to fit a 3D f... Read Full Review
