    Star Ocean has got nice graphics and dynamic fights, but the old checkpoint-system and the flat story and characters narrow the fun you'll have with this game.

    Strong survival horror game, but the controls could do better.

    Killing Floor is a zombie game that lacks brain and own ideas. In the main part it's simply a Left 4 Dead clone with boring maps and graphics. But Killing Floor's emphasis on tactical gameplay, the solid coop mode and the cheap prize make the game worth a look.

    Instead of creating another awful 3D resurrection of Sonic, Sega gives you a chance to relive the classic titles. Unfortunately, the port isn't perfect, the graphics aren't smooth and there's no additional content.

    The story is typical for a Square Enix RPG, which is okay. The characters are designed with love, the atmosphere is good. The stuttering was acceptable as well. But there are too many decisions, that I’d rather have taken myself.

    A neat mixture between sports, tactics and the famous Warhammer franchise, but overall too hard for beginners.

    Dragon Ball Z Burst Limit looks nice and is easy to play. The story is nothing for newbies in the Dragonball universe, because the game gets right into it.

    Excellent for fans of the series. Everybody else: Do not take a look at this gameplay-lacking game.

    Spore is more construction kit than game, but a very fascinating one. The missing depth and often too easy gameplay doesn’t make it the brilliant game everyone expected.

    Spyborgs offers some great co-op action for Wii.

    Wet
    Some parts of Wet are pretty decent, but the game clearly lacks highlights. There are way too many quick time events, especially during the final bossfight. To be accurate, the whole bossfight is a quick time event. However, everyone who enjoyed Stranglehold will have fun with Rubi too.

    Square Enix' attempt to create a great action-roleplaying experience is a little disappointing. The game's world is big and the characters interesting, despite the lengthy story and lame graphics. Nier wants to be a great game, but it doesn't even get Nier to that.

    Puritas Cordis is fun and offers many puzzles to master. The controls are very good, adventure fans are going to like it.

    The cool Hollywood touch is fun for some time, but the action quickly gets repetitive.

    Unfortunately the huge potential that slumbers within a snowboard legend and a global publisher hasn’t been used. Shaun White is something for the hardcore boarder – only the multiplayer offers some unique features.

    Catching the Eledees is motivating, despite the dated graphics and the uninspired music, but fails to reach the quality level of the Pokémon games.

    Fans will be drooling over the huge hero ensemble, but others may feel disappointed by the missing overview during the bigger fights.

    The Godfather II was meant to be big competitor to the dominating GTA series, but it feels like a lousy rip-off. You got to be doing more than that, EA!

    Great atmosphere, but the game looks outdated and has some flaws.

    If you’re a big a fan of blowing things up, then you’ll love this game. Literally everything can be turned into flames, but the longer you play the more you realize that Venezuela is not the real deal when it comes to “virtual paradise”.

    While being an okay game, the DS version doesn't quite live up to his bigger next-gen brother.

    Excite Truck meets F-Zero – entertaining future-racer, but too short.

    Race Pro’s got its fair share of stuttering, but the motor sounds are awesome. Unfortunately Simbin wasn’t able to carry over the brilliance from its PC games to the console.

    Basically a nice Action-RPG which is its own worst enemy with repetitive gameplay, complicated inventory and a dull story.

    The Dead to Rights sequel starts with entertaining ideas and mission variety , but really loses its drive during the second half. Retribution is an average shooter/fighting mix with a cool dog as your partner.
