    As if you need further proof that episodic games can enhance the experience in terms of dramatic and narrative value. I can't wait for the finale.

    When it comes to presentation this remake of Ys fourth chapter could be definitely improved. But if you love your JRPG old school, it doesn’t get much better than this.

    Although it shows some flaws the Halo 4 campaign is one of the best within the series. And on top of that 343 proves that their enhancements of the multiplayer formula add some depth to the dynamic firefights.

    The table design with its mixture of realistic elements and physics on one side and unrealistic parts on the other might be too much for pinball purists, but it still works surprisingly well. And on top Zen Studios offer a fair pricing system, where 360 users can upgrade their already purchased tables for free – commendable!

    Hohokum is one of those games, where you can simply lean back to dive into beautifully designed worlds somewhere between “zen gaming” and a serious puzzler.

    At first I was skeptical, but Creative Assembly presents challenging and varied strategy, which has been improved on a lot of levels although some relevant areas like AI and diplomacy have been left out.

    The zombie sequel is an impressive lesson about life after the apocalypse with moral questions.

    Two things will never change with Disgaea: The visuals are outdated. And the intertwined mechanics and systems are among the best you will ever see in tactical role-playing games.

    FIFA 14 still is a very good, very complete soccer game. And whilst the tweaks, changes and additions to the core mechanics are well executed, overall the progress made is smaller than last year.

    Eight years after its' initial outing the age is somewhat evident with the visuals – but it doesn't really matter. Because it is much more important that after all this time the concept, direction and atmosphere of Project Zero 2 are as good as ever.

    At first, all the new features don't sound very thrilling. But Deep Ocean expands the Anno-mechanics where it is needed most: The economy gets new wares and needs. And to be successful you need to develop even more elaborate trade routes and production lines.

    Team players may dive deeply into the tactical and co-operative components of a game that awards planning and effective communication.

    An instant classic. The brilliant mixture of Risk and Scrabble is as simple as it is motivating: You command troops on the battlefield, rage war with words and try to capture all territories. For merely 400 points every hobby tactician should give this cute letter warfare a chance.

    Mostly the changes are subtle, but they matter. The flow is improved, the game is more tactical and faster, more dynamic.

    It is loud, it is silly and wonderfully weird. The mixture of skate action reminiscent of Jet Set Radio, the ludicrous weaponry Insomniac is known for and open world rail shooting delivers an arcade action overkill I haven’t seen in quite a while.

    Classic rhythm game with a high challenge level. If you can get past the idea that you’ll be humming to J-Pop you’ll find an exceptional music game.

    What a charming adventure. The beautiful backdrops bear the inimitable hand writing of Studio Ghibli's artists. The wonderful story carries big emotions without pathos. And the role-playing game opens the doors to a wide land full of fantasy and danger.

    This is a remarkable debut of Carbine Studios. With a mixture of well-known elements and fresh ingredients you feel right at home, but keep getting surprised from beginning to end. It has its occasional downer but in the end this is one of the freshest MMOs in years.

    If you know Death from another console there is no reason for you to ride with him again. But as a launch title for Wii U this as close as you will get to a game in the tradition of the Legend of Zelda-series.

    This is a content monster. With crisp controls and support for up to eight players, this is party mayhem at its best. Unfortunately the online-mode can’t deliver once more.

    If you know the original strategy gem be aware: This is rather a visually updated remake than a new iteration. But nonetheless the concept still is as fresh as interesting.

    This PS3-classic didn’t lose any of its magic. The visuals are beautiful, the turn based tactics challenging as always.

    Bizarre mystery-thriller that can’t quite capture the essence of the excellent predecessor. Still this is a very entertaining Vita game you shouldn’t pass up.

    The base quality is there – just like in the current gen versions. And there are lots of small additions, some of them more useful than others. But overall it is not the significant progress I was hoping for.

    With all the improvements, the overall darker atmosphere and the addition of adventure mode, this is a good as it gets as an add-on. Blizzard isn’t back to its old glory yet, but this is a step in the right direction.

    You could almost forget that Saints Row 4 started as a DLC for the third part. But even though you’ll find a lot there is to like, starting from over the top humor and super powers up to the brilliant Dubstep Gun, it can never fully separate itself from its add on roots.

    Except for the battle system that still shows its PC roots, Blizzard converted the mechanics almost perfectly to the gamepad. And the rest is, well, Diablo 3. If you don’t like it, this won’t change your mind. But if you do, this is not just one of the best coop games out there, but with all the little tweaks and changes this could very well be the best version.

    A very solid and very entertaining standalone add-on with a new theatre and well proven tactical challenges.

    GRID 2 doesn’t insist on tuning, there is no setup hassle – just driving fun with a great sense of speed. Unfortunately some problems remain untouched, among them the very aggressive AI.

    It is not just loaded with content, but puts one of the interesting eras of Sports Entertainment into the spotlight. It has its flaws, especially when it comes to the engine, but nonetheless as an old school wrestling aficionado I haven't had this much fun with a WWE game in years.
