    Once you start Civilization, you can’t stop playing. Fortunately the controls work wonderfully on the console versions. A great strategy game!

    Granted: This is not WoW, but Runes of Magic is the ideal entrance into the MMORPG world, since it's completely free.

    The voice control is almost perfect and absolutely trend-setting. But three gameplay-wise almost identical groups and similar missions are too little to captivate in the long term.

    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.

    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?

    Authentic controls and a variety of play modes stand against merely changed gameplay and graphics. For fans and rookies!

    Minor flaws prevent this game from reaching a higher score. Still, Saboteur is an atmospheric shooter with some innovative notions.

    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.

    Okay, the new Tomb Raider adventure is not really innovative. But Lara has never looked so good before. The gameplay is smooth and the puzzles are great. But the stupid motorcycle trips, the camera and the senseless gadgets are fun-killers.

    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.

    The Beatles: Rock Band is a decent party game and the best choice for everyone who is new to music games. The overall presentation is charming, but there are only 45 songs to enjoy.

    The crazy humor, the fresh game play, the strategic diversity and the wacky graphics make Ninja Town an insider tip.

    It’s not a real challenge for a modern gamer, but Endless Ocean 2 offers a unique experience which you don’t get to see often in the action packed gaming world.

    The developers put a lot of effort in the classic fantasy world of Aventuria. It literally makes you wanna dive into it. Weak point: You have to play ten hours minimum to really understand what’s going on about your character and the story.

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

    Overlord II is a good sequel. There are some nice locations and interesting missions. Overlord II is fun, because it´s good to be bad.

    Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is a good Mario Kart alternative for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

    This action game doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but brings an entertaining adventure to the PSP.

    Picross 3D lets you solve puzzles in the third dimension. This is not just a challenge for your spatial-logical thinking, it’s also highly addictive.

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

    Brink needs some time to unfold, especially during the multiplayer matches. But if you get across some early frustrations, the game really rewards you for your patience.

    The Conduit has nice graphics and a good gameplay. The multiplayer mode is also very nice. The Conduit is a "must-have" - title for Wii owners.

    Monster Hunter Tri is the opposite of a casual game. Hunting monsters and upgrading your weapons is a challenge for endless hours and highly addictive. Free Online-mode included.

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

    A nice shooter with an entertaining coop mode, cool weapon combinations but annoying AI.
