    Race The Sun is pure adrenaline. Unfortunately the challenges are rather short.

    The 2D-action is crazy, there are lots of secrets to be discovered and Sam's humour is back to its old glory.

    Ghost Trick is a clever adventure where you travel into the past of deceased to solve intelligent puzzles in order to investigate your own death – very entertaining.

    It doesn’t reach the elegant brilliance of its spiritual successor. Options in attack and defense are limited, presentation sometimes is confusing. But the poker for the right tactics keeps the momentum going and delivers intense matches.

    It's the multiple approaches to a problem and numerous ways to reach your target that define this experience. This fifth Hitman is the antihero's best adventure yet.

    Sneaking, hacking and puzzles: Gunpoint is rather short but very entertaining with its wild and unique mix of funny dialogue, challenging jump sequences and stealth elements.

    Watch out Capcom, SNK and Namco: A new challenger has entered the ring. Although you could reduce it to tits and ass at first glance, you'd make a terrible mistake. Skullgirls offers not only outer but also inner values.

    A very good ending of an overall weaker second season. Dialogue and human conflict remain one of the strengths.

    This is a trip down memory lane into the era of classic 3D platform action – even the sometimes clunky scenery is reminiscent of PS2 games. You’ll find charming characters, loads of jumping, fighting, the occasional stealth element and a lot to collect – what you won’t find, though, are fresh ideas.

    Harmonix proves once again that they are the masters of Kinect: The movement recognition is almost flawless. The decision to shrink everything down to downloadable snack size is not that convincing though. Nonetheless this is still worth to sink your teeth in.

    A challenging race against time and points that delivers pure adrenalin.

    Even with not fully taking advantage of the fresh hardware, this little zombie fighting gem didn’t lose its mojo.

    No surprises, no innovations, just the proven gameplay virtues of the predecessor, now for up to four players. But that doesn’t only raise the fun to be had with the mix of action, platforming and puzzles, it also makes it more confusing.

    The driving physics are a dream come true. If at all, only iRacing can capture the fascination of authentic driving this realistically. But in terms of content it leaves a lot to be desired: Even though it looks great, it still feels like a beta version. Maybe the dev team should have waited a little longer with the official release to give Assetto Corsa more time for fine tuning.

    While the over-the-top-action and the humor didn’t lose anything, the visuals don’t scream HD like they do in GTA 5. In its best moments it is on par with the PC version of Saints Row 4, but occasionally suffers from framerate issues. Nonetheless with the addition of all the content, including the recent add-on Gat out of Hell this is a package worth picking up if you haven’t played it on the past-gen systems.

    Stylish visuals and challenging fights: On the highest difficulty setting this is very close to Dark Souls in 2D.

    The fighting mechanics work well, collision detection is right on the money, online duels are as accurate as offline battles. The narrative though suffers from incoherent styles and a tendency to be drawn out.

    It may be a little too easy, but nonetheless this is a lot of fun. Rhythm Thief is the best game of its kind since Elite Beat Agents.

    Driven by an incredibly tight and accurate fighting engine you'll find only minor flaws – but quite a few of those like the online mode that can't compare to the likes of BlazBlue. But even with all the rough edges, this is Tekken in its purest form.

    It might be short, but it also is very entertaining.

    This is almost like real skateboarding: You’ll kiss the ground – a lot. But you will stay motivated enough to get up again and keep trying.

    Do you feel like a helping of Edgar Allan Poe? Do you feel like experiencing a quiet, but complex storytelling? A creative developer demonstrates how much atmospheric force can be put into one pixel.

    Kudos to Grasshopper and Digital Reality: I didn't think that a side scrolling shooter could look this marvelous. This is a well-executed take on bullet hell action with a clever integration of slow motion.

    As annoying as the high tolerance level and missing error analysis are: Just Dance 2014 is the best rhythm game when it comes to the pure joy of moving to music – especially in a group.

    In the dull routine of everyday life of military shooters, this is a colorful change – but the sometimes chaotic fights of flora and undead suffer from a limited number of maps and modes.

    So this is what happens if you mix Dishwasher with Castle Crashers and add some punk rock.

    The basic concept might be a bit outdated by now but it still is as addictive as it is simple. And with the addition of gravity and indirect hits it gains a lot of creativity, although luck plays a bigger part than ever before.

    A charming farewell of the puzzle sleuth.

    After SSX this is the second successful reboot for former EA Sports Big franchises: With FIFA 12 as foundation the mechanics in Street feel much more down-to-earth compared to the predecessors without losing their arcade touch. But physics and AI still need improvement.

    As an adventure it is not challenging, the puzzle solutions are too obvious - at least once you know where your hero squad is supposed to go. But nonetheless this is a heartwarming declaration of love towards colorful zest for life.
