    Crossboard 7 is a fair game as a Kinect launch title, but most will probably forget about it quite quickly. The overall design is clearly targeted at younger gamers, which makes it much less appealing for older ones, but its movement recognition and simple challenges make it a nice (and physical) entertainment to occupy rainy Wednesdays.

    Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom could have been a great game. Its touching characters and well crafted gameplay make it a good game, blessed with a distinct personality. That's always something, but the concept lacks any sort of innovation. Even though you've most probably already played something very similar, you'll probably cruise through the 15-or-so hours of the game with ease, to discover the end of this friendship story.

    You can't judge a game like SAW II as you would any blockbuster, because it is the kind of guilty pleasures some are fond of... Of course, if you hate the SAW movies, choose another way to do it, since SAW II is clearly aimed at fans of the series... fans who are treated with respect here.

    If you like the rail shooters, and own a PS Move, The Shoot is a nice deal. It's still a little expensive for a game you'll finish soon enough, but on the other hand, FPS games with less-than-6-hours solo campaigns are legion... It's also a nice way to start playing with your PS Move.

    Apache : Air Assault is for a niche audience. So if you're not a chopper fan, don't even consider it. If you are, but a little, then Apache will offer you some nice sensations. Too bad its interface is so basic, its staging non-existent, and its solo campaign lacking diversity in the missions, because Apache would have been a real benchmark, with a position to appeal to a larger audience.

    DBZ Tenkaichi Tag Team won't surprise anyone, but it has mastered its subject nonetheless. With a lighter but comprehensive Story Mode, punchy combat, and its news 4 player combat mode, it's a game perfectly suited for the PSP. However, it's still undergoing the fact that the franchise is running a little out of breath, given that it has spawned so very many games before it.

    Like Yoshi Touch & Go, Ivy the Kiwi? is a nice little game you can treat yourself with like a snack. Not much to keep playing it though, since both the gameplay and content are too light for the long run.

    As an action platformer, Naruto VS Sasuke is a fair and nice game to play. Its greatest flaw is the amount of similar titles on the DS, to which it doesn't offer anything new. If you're an unconditional fan, you'll still find a well crafted game, but if you're used to playing Naruto games on the DS, this may be a waste of time and money.

    Force Unleashed II isn't a bad game, far from it actually. But its very short adventure, lack of polish, and imprecise gameplay prevent it from being anything more than a cheap steam-venting endeavor. Despite some nice ideas (usually borrowed from the killer apps of the genre, but poorly implemented). From a fan service standpoint, though, it clearly works with customizable light sabers, a ton of alternative badass-looking costumes for Starkiller, and additional challenges to have players compete over the internet.

    If Pang : Magical Michael doesn't renew enough the appeal of the original franchise for the gamers who already know it, it doesn't come out diminished of this redesign either. A proof that its formula can endure the test of time. Perfect for short sessions in between subway stations : it fits the bill !

    Unless they have developed a sudden passion for the hardcore action RPG genre, PC gamers who were not customers of last year edition will not suddenly fall in love with this one. As for Xbox 360 gamers, they can probably consider giving it a chance, now that he does have frame-rate problems anymore and offers nice reworked graphics. Finally, the fans will be delighted for sure by this new, very long campaign.

    Even though it's not as much of a must-have as Super Meat Boy, Flower, or Limbo are, ilomilo is a nice little game full of charm and cleverness. It will probably seduce the puzzle fans. Its price and its poetic and polished world will conquer the others.

    Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves costs the price of a good Royal Kebab, but unfortunately it is not as invigorating... The game ends after one hour of play only. However, this title is nice and provides a good cooperative and smart use of the PlayStation Move.

    Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded is one of the finest games available on DS and gives pride to the action, always carried by an addictive gameplay. However, its wacky scenario that does nothing to advance the story of the saga, and the feeling of replaying the first Kingdom Hearts game in a strangely altered version, will clearly disappoint fans. This episode is still much more fun than 358/2 days and could be a good introduction for those who have never experienced the adventures of the Keyblade bearer.

    Modern Combat Domination is quite pleasant, without being either a AAA title. You can have fun with it, as it is classical but really efficient... and with that price, that might interest FPS fans.

    Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem is the worthy successor of the previous episode released on the DS. A fine puzzle game to pick your brains with. Short at first, it still fulfills its goal with additional challenges in the "+" mode, and the editor. It may not be revolutionary concept-wise at all, and even become a little tedious for some, but fans of the genre will be satisfied, thanks to great production values and a solid level design.

    Despite its average production and an obvious lack of ambition, Trinity remains a nice and solid game, one, however, that is closer to a beat'em all like Dynasty Warriors or N3 than to a real action-RPG. Most games of that genre have a tendency to become tedious after some time, and Trinity can be no exception : if you like more subtle and narratively rich games, be warned.

    All the ingredients of the original are there : an original gameplay mechanic centered around the "coloring" of levels and groovy, interactive musics, funny cinematics, an overall easy-going atmosphere, and an above average production value... but deBlob 2 is never able to surprise as much as its predecessor, as the innovation factor was consumed with the original episode. On top of that, this sequel suffers from a poorly paced rhythm, and a repetitiveness you soon feel too much. Too bad for those who ere expecting much of it. Despite all this, it still remains a very decent platformer with an original twist, a lot of qualities, and most of all, a ton of charm.

    Dragon Age II is blessed with a deep universe and a ton of content, but it's sadly undermined by its technical side. Even though, visually, the game goes beyond the original, it still forgoes some elements of its predecessor in order to become more action-oriented, which is a choice that will most probably keep dividing opinions. We'd have hoped to see this sequel install the franchise as a must-have by correcting the shortcomings of the original. Instead, we'll have to make-do with finding it most entertaining indeed, but without any added praise. Too bad.

    Homefront is a classic first-person shooter, of which you could say it's efficient. But its looks seem old, it lacks ambition for its solo, and its multiplayer is scrawny, barely offering the minimum. It's a shame, because its story remains good, but a good game isn't a great game, and it's not like there's no great FPS out there.
