    Adventure or racing? Definitely racing! The cut scenes are not suspenseful enough for an adventure. But I like Tri-City with its varied missions and the intuitive controls. Unfortunately the game sometimes drops to a low frame rate.

    They took a long time for the development of Virtua Tennis 2009. Why? There’s actually nothing new around.

    It's astonishingly dark. Maybe too dark for kids at all. Epic Mickey is extraordinary.

    More than 60 fighters, six non-linear careers and nearly 50 match types. No other wrestling game has offered so much variety yet. Now I would like to see slightly refurbished graphics and no more clipping errors, then I would be in wrestling heaven.

    Though not perfect, there is lots of solid fun in it for fans.

    Impossible is nothing – After Dead Space EA surprises us with another highly innovative game. The developers have formed something that no one has seen to date.

    It’s a shame that only a few real hits have found their way into the game.

    It is astonishingly intricate and many details make it an adventure of a special kind. There's a lot to discover and experience in the spacious school of Hogwarts. Only the unclear tasks and the unsteady camera angles detract from the amusement.

    Fans of the Guitar Hero franchise should have a look at Band Hero.

    Straight-forward lightsaber action meets first class story. But what sounds like a must have game reveals a lot of frustrating sides and small bugs.

    With its innovative concept, Boom Blox is the perfect example for a refreshing puzzle game and very addictive. Unfortunately, the first levels are too easy and there is no online mode.

    Because of the variety in the card decks, BattleForge is tactically demanding. But the paid content makes us worry about fairness.

    Birds of Prey is a great mixture of simulation and arcade. The missions get repetitive quickly, though.

    Red Faction: Armageddon is a nice successor to the mediocre Guerilla. The new gameplay elements are a plus, but in the end the hordes of alien enemies are just a tad too much.

    More routes, more jumps, less frustration! A few mini games, more race types and a few more gallons of adrenaline would be great for the third MotorStorm.

    The controls for PES Wii still aren’t intuitive to use, but with patience you may discover their brilliance. It is good that Konami decided to support the Classic Controller – it’s perfect for the impatient gamer.

    Roleplaying-Fans with a lot of time at their hands, should give Suikoden: Tierkreis and its huge size definitely a try!

    The cover-feature provides a tactical touch to the shoot-outs. Thanks to many different locations and surprises, the variety is sufficient. Considering the fact that there are a lot of good shooters on the market, we long for a little more Bond-feeling.

    Concerning the gameplay, the Wii version can’t play in the same league as its next gen colleagues. On next gen the game is definitely brilliant.

    Super Size Me in the Middle Ages. A funny mixture of role-playing game, comic visuals and a humorous story. The fights are huge, but often end up in chaotic and confusing bashing.

    This tears your skin off! Fast gameplay, customisable upgrades and lots of style – despite the repetitive action, Wolverine definitely is the best game incarnation of our favorite super-hero.

    Red Steel 2 is a nice Japanese western with great controls. The Wii Motion Plus feels like a real sword, who needs a story?

    Although the Wolfenstein series has an excellent reputation, we were a bit skeptical before the review. But Wolfenstein offers brilliant, intense action with B.J. Blazkowicz, the Nazi Terminator. So the skepticism quickly turned into a hell-ride of fun.

    Ambitions is good add-on that fortunately adds some new gameplay elements. It's actually fun to play the jobs, although the firefighter and the ghostbuster jobs consist basically of simple mouse-clicking. A bit more extent would have been good.
