    A very good racer that makes proper use of Vita's power. [March 2012, p.76]

    An example of a perfect console-to-PC port – we got a complete game with two DLC's that looks better than the original X360 version. The loading times are very short, mouse and keyboard controls are perfect and even an old PC is enough to enjoy Alan Wake. [April 2012, p.56]

    SSX
    Contrary to appearances this is not a game for everyone. Its difficulty level is really old school and the necessity to learn the tracks and retry (and retry, and then retry) will put off everyone who thought SSX to be a relaxing little arcade game. [April 2012, p.60]

    Steps back were taken in some aspects but the most important element – the gameplay – was fine-tuned so all in all Shank 2 is a great beat 'em up dripping with fun. [April 2012, p.71]

    Vessel's creative puzzles and almost perfectly balanced difficulty level ensure great fun that lasts around 10 hours. [May 2012, p.59]

    The latest incarnation of Silent Hill is really worth visiting as the spirit of the Japanese original is strong in this Czech Downpour. [May 2012, p.77]

    First impression is not very good, especially if you're not familiar with previous Piranha Bytes' work. But Risen 2 is so gripping and surprisingly fresh that you turn the blind eye to technical issues and rough edges. I really wish Germans had Skyrim's budget at their disposal and could polish the game properly, but if you're an RPG fan, you still have to play it. [June 2012, p.46]

    A New Day is more of an 'interactive story' than a true game, but fortunately it's more interactive than Telltale's previous achievements (Jurassic Park and Law & Order) and the story itself is great – emotional and engaging. [June 2012, p.60]

    A wonderful gem, an absolute must-have for all RPG veterans and a great history lesson for those who didn't have the opportunity to enjoy classic dungeon crawls. [June 2012, p.76]

    Amanita Design are still in great shape. If you liked Machinarium, you must play Botanicula! [June 2012, p.90]

    Fez
    Unique atmosphere, lovely retro visuals and extremely enjoyable gameplay mechanics. The game could be a bit more friendly though, because it's easy to get confused in the intriguing world of Fez. [June 2012, p.84]

    Tera struggles with a couple of annoying issues but looks wonderful, doesn't cost much and fantastic combat system turns this MMORPG into a real action game. [July 2012, p.56]

    Rockstar decided that it's enough to carry the classic Max Payne gameplay as it was over to contemporary platforms. This plan was fulfilled quite well but it would be nice to get something more than that. [July 2012, p.60]

    Call of Duty is still unbeatable in terms of flamboyance but if you prefer a more tactical approach, enjoy sneaking around and using gadgets Future Soldier works great. [July 2012, p.78]

    An indie psychological horror that's scarier than many 'Triple A' games. [July 2012, p.86]

    The X360 edition is a kind of an introduction to the Minecraft's world and concept – some of important gameplay mechanics were lost in the process of simplification. [July 2012, p.87]

    The game might not be polished in every detail and has a low budget feel to it, but it's been a while since I played a shooter with such a great story and I doubt we'll be getting another like that soon. [August 2012, p.58]

    If you love with Battlefield's team deathmatch mode, you must get this DLC. [August 2012, p.76]

    The game's presentation might have aged but fortunately the fun it provides hasn't. Final Showdown is also a great gateway into the world of fighting games, as it's very accessible yet hard to master. [September 2012, p.57]

    Spies and religion are back and they are notable additions to the game, even if the latter was treated superficially and is nothing more than just a set of bonuses for your people. [September 2012, p.58]

    Developers managed to achieve a reasonable compromise – there's a number of changes and innovations that noticeably enhanced the game but the core concept that Lego series' fans love is still intact. [September 2012, p.60]

    It's incredible how the ideas to vary and enrich simple platforming gameplay seem to never end in Spelunky. [September 2012, p.73]

    Daedalic's new game really impressed me. It's merits (great puzzles and beautiful hand drawn graphics among others) make it easy to forgive the shortcomings. [September 2012, p.74]

    After a slow, boring start Fall of Cybertron turned out to be solid and varied. You have to give it a chance and see a couple of robots in action to fully appreciate what at first seems to be just another simple shooter. [10/2012, p.60]

    Daedalic Entertainment once again proved that they know how to make a point' n' click adventure game. What sets Deponia apart from their earlier work is tons of humour strongly influenced by The Secret of Monkey Island and Discworld. [10/2012, p.63]

    Proven mechanics and nice graphics make Endless Space a game enjoyable not only for 4X enthusiasts, but also for everyone else. [10/2012, p.71]

    I really recommend you play this game and see for yourself that an online shooter does not have to be a Call of Duty clone. [10/2012, p.76]

    In terms of gameplay design, difficulty level and visuals it's a true indie game. But once you get over this fact, it's a great mix of spaceship simulation and a roguelike. [12/2012, p.83]

    It seems even the developers themselves didn't want this game on computers – quality of the PC port of this wonderful game is pathetic. [11/2012, p.55]

    It's not only one of the best looking free-to-play games, but also one of the most interesting and satisfying. [11/2012, p.67]
