    "I love gaming and as usual I was snooping around Steam looking for a new game and I ran across Yooka-Laylee. I really captured my interest because I loved Donkey Kong. It has a variety of different worlds to choose from that are quite enjoyable. Also, it is great fun playing alone and even more fun playing with friends. It works great on Xbox and I recommend this for all ages, it is a worthy game in it's entirety. "

    "Metal Slug has always been seen as a classic games series, but I think Metal Slug X may be the best in the series. The graphic are gorgeous and really gives me a retro feel whenever I play it. The controls are very responsive and when I fail, I feel like it was my fault and not the game's fault. Add a great soundtrackto the mix and you get an almost perfect game. The allow minus I have with the game is that its framerate dips at times, but that is a small issue. I have played the game so much the past few days that I pretty much know all the ends and outs. "
