    The technology of the newest part of the fallout series is over aged and besides the hardcore mode and the reputation-system, the new features of New Vegas are manageable. But altogether, New Vegas is a successful new part and not just an add-on, with more than 100 hours of gaming, an interesting story and a new setting to explore.

    As soon as you get behind the tricky controls, the killing of the robot-armies is fun. Sadly, the campaign of the action-blockbuster is very short.

    Fabulous action game with nice riddles and cool fights, but with lacks in camera perspectives.

    Mirror's Edge is a great example for the way games should be on the iPad: Intuitive and fun.

    The best and most spectacular Motorstorm so far, but it still has some minor annoyances.

    Homefront is shocking, realistic and atmospheric. Unfortunately, your fight for freedom ends quickly. Good thing there is a sweet multiplayer mode.

    One of the most authentic racing games of all time – unfortunately, not the best of all time. One of the things that holds it back is the sometimes unfair enemy AI.

    Mortal Kombat has finally made the jump to the current console generation. And the result is a true Mortal Kombat offering great fights and even greater finishing moves.

    Coming with a slightly annoying 3D feature powered by nVidia 3d Vision, but beside this technical gimmick, there is not much difference from the Xbox 360 version – which is definitely not a bad thing!

    Deus Ex 3: Human Revolution is a fascinating and intelligent game – unfortunately, it has some balancing problems and technical issues.

    We had lots of fun with Resistance 3, though it doesn't revolutionize the shooter genre.

    After the mediocre predecessors, Driver: San Francisco is a really good game, which offers a gripping story and lots of multiplayer modes.

    It is very motivating to feel the progress while playing PES 2012, but it is also very frustrating that the progress comes so slowly. A very good soccer game, but the trophy goes to FIFA 12 this year.

    Ace Combat: Assault Horizon offers lots of action and diversity and leaves Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. behind.

    More light than shadow: Alan Wake is a fairly good game with an excellent mystery story. Unfortunately the gameplay could be a bit more diversified and more shock moments would be great.

    Ubisoft’s war drama is gripping and brings some new features to the battle, but they fail to have an impact. A must-have for BiA-veterans.

    Bad Company blasts the dust off of the Battlefield series with an excellent campaign. The game could be more extensive and the AI could be a little more sophisticated.

    The Asia-themed setting is quite fresh, but not everybody's cup of tea. There is no shame in giving it a try though.

    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.
