    DC Universe Online isn't necessarily a bad game. It's a decent MMO with a lot of potential, but our major concern is that it just doesn't have enough content to justify a monthly subscription.

    Don't expect to learn any parenting tips that can be applied in real life. And don't expect to see any gender-based issues brought up either. However, as a game it may fill some niche with 3-5 year old girls with parents who want to perpetuate the stereotype.

    Lord of Arcana tries a little too hard to be Monster Hunter, and ends up as a repetetive, soulless grinding feast. You may appreciate the game if you really love the genre, but there are way better alternatives out there.

    16-bit retrostylings, humorous writing and the explosion-based platforming entertain for a while, but unless collecting items and looking for secrets is your cup of tea, the game gets repetitive even in the short time it takes to finish.

    Rango is a licensed game that tries to break away from the movie it profits from, but it's way too short, easy and not very pretty. Clearly inspired by the superior Ratchet & Clank-series, but it fails to stand on its own two feet on all but a few occasions.

    The Sims Medieval tries to reinvigorate the series, and ends up losing most of what made the previous games great, instead taking the game off into a very different and overly simplistic direction, shedding all freedom for no real benefit.

    If you want to use the nicest looking 3D viewpoints you lose the defensive controls, making Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D practically impossible to play. But if you can live with the regular tv camera you at least get an average football game without a lot of content.

    The singleplayer training missions are promising but are over in less than an hour, and the multiplayer is neither varied nor fun. A zoomed out and annoying camera together with the boring and random weapons bland this down and makes Red Faction: Battlegrounds positively average.

    WWE All Stars contains arcade-style wrestling that borrows freely from regular fighting games, introducing concepts such as juggling to a genre that doesn't quite benefit from it. The inprecise controls are frustrating, and overall the game offers a decisively average gameplay experience.

    Nintendogs + Cats has been outmanouvered by other stationary virtual pet simulators for both Move and Kinect, but will still any animal cravings you may have during a trip. But at home it's more likely to collect dust than play catch.

    Virtua Tennis 4 is still the undisputed world champion of the tennis mini games and the new game board career mode is a nice touch. However, the gameplay need some work since it feels like you are on the moon while playing tennis.

    Steel Divers are submarines that are just as hard to handle as their real-life counterparts. And real submarines also have periscopes. There ends the resemblance with reality, though. Steel Diver is a slow shmup in disguise that on top of it all offers very little content to the buyer – and should have remained the downloadable DSi-title it originally was meant to be.

    Perhaps I've been spoilt by the simplfied structure in other first person shooters, but it doesn't have to be this complicated in order to add depth to the gameplay. This would have worked better if the game wasn't riddled with a seemingly endless list of bugs and painful loading times. Now it just feels old and tired.

    SEGA Rally Online Arcade doesn't have a lot of content, the car physics lack weight and the game mechanics feel dated. But there's still some fun to be had, and the intensity and overall feel from the good old days is still intact. Unfortunately, this isn't really enough, and modern competitors have passed the SEGA Rally franchise long ago. Something for nostalgic gamers then.

    Hunted has a fun concept that mixes the mechanics from Gears of War and the aesthetics from God of War with RPG elements from World of Warcraft. But the end reslut is messy and feels very rough around the edges. The saving grace is the coop mode, which is quite fun.

    In all essence, this game already came out last year. At least engine and bugwise. A new coat of paint, a new scenario but with all the flaws of the predecessor, this is a rushed job at the core. The gameplay clearly suffers from being churned out in the same fashion, year after year.

    Alice: Madness Returns a visually stunning game with great art direction. However, the game is far too long and repetitive, and due to the uninspiring and outdated level design, it never reaches its full potential.

    Dungeon Siege III is an average game that could have been a lot better if it hadn't been for the stiff camera and voice acting, a lack of good loot and the unbalanced and differentiating difficulty curve. It does shine a little in local coop and I would mostly recommend it for someone who has some time to kill and a friend to play it with. This is however not the dungeon-crawler you are looking for if you want something to grind until Diablo III is released.

    Wii Play Motion is very much alike its predecessor as it is totally different. Since Wii was brand new the last time and since a much-wanted extra wiimote was included, sales went through the roof. This will not happen this time, as the wiimote plus is not that much of a difference and since Wii has already seen its heydays a few years ago.

    Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D contains the same high-quality action as the bonus modes in Resident Evil 4 and 5, but this time in attractive 3D. Unfortunately it doesn't contain enough actual game play. Too few missions, missing favourite characters and areas and enemies that only have been taken from the latest two games. It's just not worth the money, and with the save file debacle there's little value in buying it used either.

    Runespell: Overture is a puzzle RPG with quite a compelling story. The Battles are fought using a card based duel mechanic that seemingly tries to emulate the success of Puzzle Quest, but despite the nice graphics and a not-too-generic fantasy backdrop it still doesn't quite make it.

    With graphics, gameplay and an approach to female gamers from the past, this game is just average. Battlefield: Play4Free is free to play, but my time is worth a lot more than this and I want my money back.

    If superhero games such as Batman: Arkham Asylum is a well composed three course dinner in an atmospheric restaurant, this is the equivalent of a greasy, sloppy fast food meal. It satisfies some base instinct for the moment but will not leave a lasting impression. A lesser game than its predecessor, this feels rushed and sloppy. The story and voice acting impresses with its cleverness and realization, but is ultimately dragged down by repetitive and substandard gameplay.

    Go Vacation is perhaps the 20th party game I've tried on the Wii system. You would think that these games would have to evolve to give us new experiences, but the truth is that very few titles actually do. Go Vacation is not bad if you're a bunch of people who want to have fun – but you played it all before.

    The long loading times, clumsy controls and bland presentation make Rabbids: Alive and Kicking a disappointment of old Rabbids fans. However, the minigames are fun and the four-player modes help a lot. If you're looking for a Kinect game that doesn't involve fitness or dancing this may be worth your while.

    Kirby has always managed to be fun for both kids and adults, but his latest adventure is only for the young ones. Never before has the pink little creature felt so average.

    Winter Stars has high ambitions, but is terribly unpolished. If you've got the patience you'll find a few entertaining events, and the game is a rare try to make a serious sports game for Kinect.. Party gamers beware though, as the focus is set on the single-player mode.

    If I've ever heard of Zack Zero before reviewing it I must have forgotten all about it, which is actually not completely unplausible since this game is utterly forgettable. There is nothing terribly wrong with the platforming, puzzling and occasional fighting, it's just plain bland and predictable.
