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

    Blood for the Bloodgod ! This Dawn of War Add-on continues the tradition of the Warhammer RTS series with action-packed missions and clean graphics. The gameplay hasn’t changed at all.

    Mario Kart meets Project Gotham Racing – Blur is fascinating with its power-ups and his motivational factors. Sad but true: the graphics are no highlight.

    The story is a bit confusing and the levels are quite difficult. However, after a little while playtime, you could easily become addicted to the fast-paced action and the great level-design.

    No objection needed. Exciting and extensive cases with fascinating characters and a humorous presentation. We approve.

    Much better than the average Japanese role-playing game. The unusual setting and the amusing story guarantee a fresh experience, but we hope for more weapon options in the sequel.

    The return of the realism is very welcome, but PES 2011 isn't yet as round as a football should be.

    The coop mode of Lost Planet 2 rocks the crap out of you. The giant boss fights are one of the videogame highlights of the year. But speaking of crap: The enemy AI and save game system could be much better solved.

    During my first trials, I was shocked: how could it be that GT 5 is suffering from tearing and lags, after five years of development? A few days ago, I was admiring Yamauchi, but now I just feel sorry for him. Over the full-hd-graphics and the photorealistic car models, he lost his sense of the other parts that matter. A good damage model belongs to a racing simulation, just as a cockpit-view for all (!) cars. What remains are the best controls and the most beautiful cars in the whole genre. Anyway, Gran Turismo 5 is the best racing simulation on PS3.

    The newest version of the wrestling simulation is convincing due to its new story-features, good controls and the original licenses.

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

    Undisputed 2 has a much better career mode than his predecessor. It’s a lot of fun to level up your own fighter and learn new techniques. Only the poor soundtracks trouble the good gameplay and graphics.

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

    It's Oldschool in every aspect – very challenging, but worth every frustrating moment.

    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.

    No more Heroes 2 proves that the Wii is not a kiddo console. Especially the visual style rocks.

    The game scores with a good multiplayer and lots of content. Unfortunately, the story could be better.

    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.

    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.

    For LEGO and Indy fans, this game is a revelation! The funny scenes, in which Traveller’s Tales make fun of themselves, are one of the best parts of LEGO Indiana Jones.

    Fans are going to love it, but for everyone else this is just a good shooter with a different setting. But come on - who isn't a fan of the Ghostbusters?

    Entertaining, fun action game with a fresh concept, nice graphics and a lot of humor.

    A lot of fun and a very nice setting, but the mission design is too repetitive to elevate the game to greatness.

    Classical, colorful, challenging: Red Alert 3 offers only little new. Instead we get solid strategy, funny comic graphics and very pretty ladies.

    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.
