    If you have played Sleeping Dogs before, there’s no point in picking up the Definitive Edition. But if you’ve missed the original game, you’re gonna have a lot of fun in Hong Kong. [01/2015, p.71]

    I was once fascinated with Micro Machines, but Toybox Turbos is a great game in its own right, not just as a stroll down the memory lane. [01/2015, p.71]

    Sports Interactive did not exactly hit the bulls-eye with their latest experiments – The Classic and Challenge modes – but the rest of the game is even more ingenious and addictive than last year. [CD-Action 13/2012, p.56]

    A traditional, well-designed dungeon crawler that requires both quick fingers and a sharp mind. [01/2015, p.72]

    Do stealth games have to be so slow? Stealth Bastard Deluxe has an answer – no, they don’t! Well, you can argue whether it’s a real stealth game or rather a platformer but the important part is that it’s very addictive and well-balanced. [CD-Action 02/2013, p.49]

    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]

    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]

    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]

    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]

    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]

    Primordia's intentionally outdated looks prove that the story (including atmosphere and puzzles) is still the most important element of a point'n'click adventure game. [1/2013, p.48]

    The Enhanced Edition enchanted me the same way the original Baldur's Gate did almost 15 years ago. I'm very grateful to Overhaul Games for bringing this feeling back. [1/2013, p.54]

    A healthy compromise between forcing you to think and mindless shooting. Unfortunately it takes only 4-5 hours to finish Rochard and there's no replay value here. [January 2012, p.56]

    A wonderful tribute to Japanese pop culture. [01/2015, p.83]

    The gameplay is very simple, but I got hooked on it, mainly because of a great soundtrack. [03/2014, p.69]

    An interesting medieval action game with a very good combat system (except for a rather primitive mounted combat) which is more refined than its counterpart in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. [CD-Action 13/2012, p.62]

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

    King's Bounty is still very enjoyable and addictive but it's hard not to notice that the series keeps running round in circles. [CD-Action 13/2012, p.64]

    I think you won’t be disappointed if you choose to return to Albion. Of course some gameplay mechanics are old after 10 years, but it is still a charming fairy tale. [03/2014, p.71]

    It might be unpolished, but it still is a gem among slashers, especially on a platform that lacks this kind of game. [03/2014, p.72]

    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]

    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]

    My experience with Arma III contained equal doses of pleasant surprise, delight, feeling of emptiness after finishing single player missions, and longing for more. If you’re mainly interested in the single player campaign, I advise you to wait at least for the first DLC before buying this game. [CD-Action 11/2013, p.58]

    We might have grown weary of Traveller's Tales LEGO series, but Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is the best and the most complete game they've done. An ideal remedy for the headache that Electronic Arts caused us with their lousy Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 adaptation. [January 2012, p.68]

    Simplified contextual controls and overall polish make WWE '13 fast, dynamic and fluent. The number of graphical glitches during fights was considerably reduced and the fighting system is still deep enough to keep things interesting. [1/2013, p.68]

    You rarely come across a game that ages so gracefully – updating graphics (that look great, by the way) was enough, because the story is still great and shooting aliens is as enjoyable as it was 10 years ago. [January 2012, p.70]

    Capcom's great fighting game got an enhanced edition targeted mainly at hardcore fans who will appreciate not only new characters but also gameplay tweaks. [January 2012, p.72]

    EA managed to end the bad run of Need for Speeds released in odd years. But even if it’s the best NFA in a long time, it could have been better. Rivals looks and plays really good but it could use a properly working multiplayer or a real single player mode. And if you remember Most Wanted, Rivals looks quite familiar. [01/2014, p.38]

    Out of three recently released karting games – other two being F1 Racing Stars and LittleBigPlanet Karting – this is the best one, especially if you look at them through the eyes of a real gamer. [1/2013, p.70]
