    Dood's Big Adventure contains a lot of positive things, such as the possibility to design almost everything in the game, and also the mini game Pen Panic. On the other hand it's really just a collection of mini games that never goes deep enough.

    With so many different gaming mechanics, pretty 2D platforming levels and humorous cut scenes de Blob 2 could have been a roaring success. But the end product has far too long and badly designed levels that just feel repetitive. During shorter gaming sessions it still manages to deliver a fun experience, but overall we're a little disappointed.

    Yakuza 4 isn't as compelling as the third game, nor does it introduce a lot of new, interesting features. But it's still a fun romp, and sometimes when I walk down the streets in Kabukicho it feels like I'm back in Shinjuku, and that's a rare feat. Not for everone, but fans of the series could do worse.

    Both Sly and Jak have been sorely missed on the PS3, and their half-hearted return in PlayStation Move Heroes doesn't make up for their absence. But it's still quite fun, and apart from a few uninspired levels and modes it manages to showcase the pros with the Move controller.

    There is nothing wrong with Homefront from a technical point of view, but as a whole the game feels incomplete. The extremly short single player campaign and the large but anonymous multiplayer mode gives me the feeling that something is askew, and that I'm missing out on a great experience.

    The new physics engine and split screen gameplay are nice additions, but only the real fans will apprecitate the other new features. If you have an older version then it ought to suit you fine for now.

    A mix of Tetris and Super Smash Brothers may sound strange but describes Slam Bolt Scrappers surprisingly well. Since it's frantic and surprisingly complex, this isn't a game for everyone, however multiplayer can be a brief but hectic delight.

    The 3rd Birthday is a good attempt at reviving an old franchise, but the content doesn't quite fit the format. Controls are clunky and dependant on your view, and there is some questionable content in the game. However, the interesting combat, story and gorgeous cut-scenes do make for a good thrill ride.

    Patapon 3 doesn't quite make it all the way, despite the much sought-after multiplayer and the entrancing music. The large amounts of micromanagement and grinding draws focus from the core gameplay, and the end result is a finicky adventure where the outcome depends more on your equipment than your ability to drum up proper instructions.

    Dungeon Hunter: Alliance is a good piece of entertainment for a willing hero and their buddy. And it's equally bad entertainment for players who game alone, though the Move gimmick might keep you interested for a while. Hack and slash games of this sort have a strange notion of keeping you in front of the screen even though you know that it's neither rewarding nor especially fun.

    Magicka: Vietnam completely changes the way you play Magicka, but there's not enough content and as the difficulty level so high this is more for the most hardcore players of the game.

    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.

    Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011 may have some obvious flaws, like the inept plastic controller and some bug issues, but the overall charm and playful jibes at political correctness is quite refreshing. Video games are about living in a fantasy world, right, and where else can you wreak havoc on endangered species in such a vulgar fashion?

    Red Faction: Armageddon suffers from a linear and uninspiring level design that unfortunately drags down the fun a bit. But the destruction mechanics are as excellent as always.

    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.

    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.

    Cars 2 is no Mario Kart-killer, but it's an okay game for us who don't have the Wii and Marios cart-racer. The game is challenging, has a good turbo-system and is great fun when played with a couple of friends.

    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.

    Deathspank: The Baconing is a fun game with first class humour that gets dragged down by repetitive combat. Brilliant in small doses, though.

    A multiplayer centric WW2 shooter that puts great emphasis on realistic mechanics and ambiance. Unfortunately realism does not always translate into fun, resulting in a game with little appeal except to the hardcore fans of the era.

    One of the more understated games in the Resident Evil franchise gets a facepaint and a new release for the current generation platforms, but without fixing any of the archaic gameplay problems existing in the earlier games. New players beware, this is a harsh, unforgiving game compared to the newer entries. Nostalgics will likely already own this in one or more format, and have little reason to repurchase it in this upgraded version. A little more love and polish could have gone a long way to make this more appealing.

    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.

    An interesting attempt to tackle the Middle Earth franchise, but lacks new source material. Snowblind Studios has attempted to tell a side story to the story established by the books, casting it in their familiar style of hack and slash games, but it fails to spark any direct interest in either story or characters. Combat becomes slightly tedious shortly after being introduced, but can still be fun for frantic multiplayer sessions either locally or online. For Middle Earth fans, this could be enjoyable in well-paced out dosages.

    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.

    Not even high production values can save a game that isn't fun to play. Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi is a game that want's too much and fails with a lot, except the beautiful graphics.

    In Need for Speed: The Run the linearity is almost drawn to it's outer edge. It almost feels like everything you do is planned before you even start it and all you do is learn when certain events in the race will poop up and then act accodingly. The good parts - the Challenges, the varied enviroments and in some aspects the multiplayer - is drowned by poor design of basic game mechanics.

    A monster collector game that draws on the Dragon Quest series fauna of iconic monsters. Being more complex than Pokémon, this is a game to be played primarily for the joy of breeding and raising little monsters, as the story offers little interest. If you like Dragon Quest and Pokémon, this is the a game for you.

    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.

    Kung Fu: High Impact is far too expensive for its own good. It's fun alright, and will probably make you feel like the Star Wars kid did, and the short amount of hours that it delivers are clearly entertaining. Well worth it if you find it in a bargain bin.
