    Sonic Generations is a great history lesson about the series descent from greatness. It starts off fantastic and the 2d-part is good overall, but the 3d-versions of the tracks are filled with the same problems the series has had in the later half of its lifespan. On top of that there are way too few levels and the quality of them is anywhere between great and horrible.

    Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is fun in short bursts, but lacks the well-made modes that are needed for families who only want to spend 30 minutes or so gaming to see who is the fastest, highest and strongest.

    Test Drive Unlimited 2 has brilliant potential with loads of driving content and all the necessary grounds for a brilliant MMO. However, the game delivers a really bad driving experience and the servers are more often offline than online. It's still worth buying if you enjoyed the last game of the series though, but be aware that it doesn't stand a chance against rival series like Gran Turismo, Need for Speed and Forza.

    The game mechanics are solid, bosses are satisfying creatures. The Suda 51/Mikami/Yamaoka trio clearly have a lot of ideas on their plate, but the games' infantile humor and macho bravado goes a little too far, and the end result lacks the magic that's promised in the beginning.

    Splice is a very beautiful and and relaxing puzzler that can be really challenging at times. But when the mechanics really start to shine the game ends, so the puzzles could hace easily been more and more challenging. Also, the price is a tad too high, and we're missing the essential iOS and Android ports, which would have been a perfect match.

    It's hard to argue that you won't get value for your money given the amount of content in the game, but as it stands today I can only recommend it for the hardcore fans of the mobile versions. The rest of you can wait until the price drops.

    Comfortably familiar game-play contrasts against badly written and possibly fan-upsetting story. A bit too buggy and repetitive and loses much of its charm when playing without a human partner. Sadly, the best parts by far are the mask-painting tool and the possibility to play it with a friend.

    A sequel that fails to live up to the promises of the first game, but fixes a number of flaws while updating the graphics and battle system. It's neither very good nor very bad, it's just serviceable. Collectors will find plenty of things to collect, and the multiplayer modes promise longevity, but for the single player there isn't all that much to do story-wise. It's a sad sign of a Japanese rpg not daring to break the mold.

    Datura is an interesting experiment in game design. Not quite sure whether it wants to be a piece of interactive art, or an adventure game, Datura stands on the fence in-between. Lofty, gorgeous and almost Lynchian in its narrative and exposition, it slightly fails at actually being a good game. Whether Datura will be judged as proof that games are art, or that arty games can be created, it's worth taking a look at, at least for its uniqueness.

    Backbreaker Vengeance is very entertaining and lasts quite a while, but is far too lacking in content for a game that costs 1200 MS Points.

    It's sad to see a pretty promising premise stumble and fall on the implementation like Secret Files 3 does. There is some potential in the story especially if you're interested in historical events and conspiracies, but it feels like the game loses its focus and doesn't know where it wants to go.

    Silent Hill: HD Collection is a very lazy product. The only thing that really has been upgraded is the resolution of backgrounds and characters, which means that the effects and other things remain the same. The two games that are included are fantastic, but the lack of the original is a disappointment.

    Chaining together long stunts to take out bombs in style while simultaneously racking up huge points can be satisfying, but repetition soon sets in. With the slightly imprecise controls, one-screen levels and play suited for shorter sessions The Splatters would feel more at home on a mobile device than the TV screen.

    Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is in essence a fun game, but it's hard to overlook the fact that the game is a bit too repetitive and shouldn't really be a full-price title. But if you have three friends standing by you'll still have a lot of fun.

    There is something appealing about the soccer mechanics in the Inazuma Eleven-series, but the way the concept stands today it's no more than decent. The Inazuma-series has potential, if just Level-5 (who are also behind the Professor Layton games) dares to develop it further.

    An odd mix of genres that doesn't capture the magic you usually get from a Ratchet & Clank title. A game that can be fun for a while but never really manages to create its own identity.

    Pokémon X/Y is a marvelous refinement of a tried and true concept, both larger and better than its predecessors. Despite this, it is unmistakenly a repetition of that old concept, one which may be past its prime in the presence of contemporary iterations on the concept, such as Skylanders or Ni No Kuni.

    Even though many aspects are just like Episode 1 and the introduction of Tails proved to be a very nice one indeed, there are a few pieces of the puzzle that are missing. Boss fights are horrendous, the music is as bad as in Sonic's 3D adventure and the new multiplayer mode does not offer much cooperation at all. Episode 2 is far from being a bad game, but not much greater than its predecessor.

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is the latest installment in the franchise and brings updated graphics, two new game modes and new weapons to the venerable shooter. Its qualities are undeniable, but the question is if these are the qualities requested by the player base? With only primitive features to support the esport community, it's not hard to imagine that the game will get a lukewarm reception.

    The Monkey Ball series have been in a downward slope ever since the first brilliant game, but this is one of be the best since then. Graphics are very nice and there is a lot of content including some decent mini games, but while it's all competently done there is no denying that the magic has been lost over all these years.

    Hole in the Wall is filled with flaws and becomes quite boring if you play it in long sessions. As a party game in shorter sessions, it's really fun to play and reminds me of a modern version for the classic family game Twister.

    Quake Arena Arcade may be the best console version of the game out there, but it's doesn't live up to its free PC counterpart. And the PC version already has an active community. Fun for casual shooting, but not for the pros.

    Shadowrun Returns is a faithful reinterpretation (and in a vague sense, sequel) to the SNES game from 20 years ago, maybe a bit too faithful. Though most aspects of the the wild and unruly Shadowrun world is included, the promise of this game lies more in the open embrace of the mod community than the included adventure.

    The first classic book in Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson's legendary book series. Although the presentation is rather sloppy, the PSN-game is loyal to the original adventure - and anyone who's been dying to know what lurks around the next corner in the halls of Red Mountain should try this one out. Good, but needs polishing for future books.

    If you already own a ModNation Racers game you can skip this, due to the lack of online racers. However, if you're new to the series you'll have a great cart-racing time, as long as you're ok with only playing with people in your vicinity.

    It's only during multiplayer sessions that Raskulls shines, as the campaign is quite bland. But playing against other people at home or over the net can be plenty of fun, as long as you can find other players.

    Super Pokémon Rumble is an entertaining and action filled game for younger players, but lacks depth (except for the 3D effects) and isn't very challenging. Well worth it if you thought Pokémon Black and White was a bit too complex and slow but still would like to experience the Pokémon universe.

    If you are looking for a Playstation Move-game that is fun for the moment, you can do a lot worse than Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest. It could last longer though.
