    Hard is hard. Though greatly satisfying at times, Dark Souls consists of many hours of pure frustration.

    Lovely design and solid atmosphere but the gameplay feels clunky.

    The portable edition of Dead Space is an OK game, but you really need to spend more time than you should on fighting the controls and it doesn't hurt to have the patience of an angel. In the end, it might be good looking game, but not nearly as entertaining as it looks.

    KOTOR has not aged well. A fact which came as a nasty surprise along with horrible playability. For what it’s worth, the story still stands.

    Ridiculously complex as is it, Europa Universalis IV offers something truly unique and rewarding for those who dare embark on the quest for world domination.

    While it can be nice to be held by the hand, Crystal Dynamics' grip could have been a lot looser.

    Not too bad. Great tacky design and lots of content make this a fighting game worth your buck.

    Ninja Theory has the know-how, the lust to experiment and the talent. But we are not completely convinced by Dante's reboot.

    Last year's great game with even better graphics. If you haven't played Lar's comeback, now is the time to do it, even though more polish on the game play flaws would have been appreciated.
    • 86 Metascore

    Wonderful vistas, fantastic atmosphere, pretty cars but it lacks in variation and the off-road part is awful.
    • 85 Metascore

    A bargain of a collection, but with some flaws like a non-cooperative camera and some dated graphics.

    For every year, Football Manager is more about statistics and less about football. The hyper realism hurts the game more than it makes it anjoyable, but it is still by far the best in this genre.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you like the TV-series, chances are you'll like the game as well. It's far from perfect, the tempo is a bit off and I could do with fewer bugs for example, but any fan should give it a closer look.

    The second Monkey Island remake hasn't got the same amount of love as the first one did and have a few quirks. But nonetheless. It's still adventure gaming at it's finest and recommended regardless of whether you've played it before or not.

    A really huge expansion to Borderlands that feels a little bit like a missed opportunity. But all the tedious transportation and rather dull enemies can't hide the fact that there really is a lot to do here, and that the new vehicles are good fun. In the end, General Knoxx is recommended for all of you who have missed the adventures on Pandora.

    The gaming mechanics and presentation are spot-on, but the UFC fighting feels a bit too stiff sometimes.

    Mortal Kombat for PS Vita the same enjoyable game as the console versions with a ton of things to do for the lonely player. Unfortunately, the graphics has been really downgraded and the net code could have been better. Still one of the best fighting offerings for the PS Vita.

    Music and platform adventures is really nicely tied together in Sound Shapes, and the excellent level editor makes this game last for many hours. Still, the gameplay could have been a little bit deeper.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Guerrilla's follow up to the action fest that was Killzone 2 falls short in every area, save from the graphics. It's still a rock solid action game, but now feels more streamlined, not as heavy and the multiplayer leaves a lot to wish for.

    A lot of speed and explosions entertain us, but this is a racing game that relies to much on a pretty mediocre gimmick.

    The lack of real competition for EA starts to show in the football genre. Madden NFL 11 plays nice and has tons of content, but there really should be more real news to this, other than a new roster to convince people to buy it every year.

    Everything’s there, just like last year. Hardcore fans will enjoy the revisited physics engine, but we were expecting some larger changes.
    • 83 Metascore

    A different camera angle along with great e-sport support can't hide the fact that this has been done before, with better result.
    • 83 Metascore

    Some fundamental port issues stand in the way of making this really great.

    Much like a rollercoaster, Black Flag has its fair share of highs and lows. The naval exploring is one of the high points in the series so far while sneaking about the bushes and trees tends to get frustrating fast. It lacks in polish, harming the immersion, but if you can overlook this, chances are high that you’ll like the pirate life.

    Good enough, but after six years in these trenches, Treyarch and Infinity Ward should be getting back to the drawing board.

    High production values and charming characters make Final Fantasy XIII a good game. But an all too linear structure and a boring story keep it from being brilliant.

    Old World Blues is an expansion that delivers what you probably expect. New weapons, new items, new perks and more levels for your character. In total about 8 hours worth of play time and a recommendation for Fallout fans, even though a better story would have been appreciated.

    A good collection of three great games. But some extra material and proper HD cutscenes would have been nice.

    Despite the small budget, this is an interesting indie title with a few nice ideas.

    Great fighting, as usual from Namco. But it feels like an expansion for Tekken 6.

    A feeling of deja vu is constant in Electronic Arts World Cup title, but that doesn't make it a bad game. If you liked FIFA 10 you are going to like this, but it's hard to shake the feeling that this is the same game in a new package. The graphics are nice though, and the game engine is not seldom total brilliance.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Great eerie graphics and sound make for a chilling setting in Remedy's long-awaited psychological thriller. It's a shame the enemies are dull clones, that the gunplay gets old fast and that it never really gets scary.

    Albeit expensive, Skylanders Swap Force is a good game for kids, building well on its predecessor.

    Shift 2: Unleashed offers quality racing with nice simulations to some degree, but hasn't been improved since the original as much as it should have been.

    Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour is a really cheap alternative to the real Call of Dutys, but don't expect the same amount of content and polish.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite badly thought through bonus items and tedious parts of the stages with boats, this is an improvement over the previous game in every single way. This is highly recommended multiplayer madness for both offline and online gaming.

    You don't have to drive many laps of ModNation Racers to realise that developer United Front Games has been putting more effort in the parts of the game that let you build your own courses, cars and drivers, than in the actual driving. In the end, the tools for construction are great, but the actual gameplay isn't.

    Even though NetherRealm Studios has packed Injustice: Gods Among Us with fanservice and added a really nice single-player mode, the fighting engine just isn't good enough.

    While it doesn't feels like the grand farewell Professor Layton deserves, it's still a mighty fun puzzle game with a lot of variation.

    Gran Turismo 6 feels like a relic of the past and the gameplay hasn't evolved to today's standards. There really isn't anything real about the so called 'real driving simulator', just an old fashioned Japanese game that isn't all that fun to play.
    • 81 Metascore

    Activisions retelling of Goldeneye is no where near the high standards of Rares original game. Still, it's one of the better shooers for Wii and the online multiplayer experience is good fun.

    • 50 Critic Score
    Even though Blood Dragon is packed with the relaxed charm of the 80ies, it just doesn't is enough to entertain in the end. It lacks content and variation and it doesn't even look good. This is nowhere near the awesomeness that is Far Cry 3.

    The charming prequel to Solomon's Keep let you choose between seven magicians to beat the crap out of hordes of skeletons and other enemies. Solomon's Boneyard is a bargain and well worth checking out.

    It's probably more economic to buy Puzzle Quest 2 for Xbox 360 rather than Nintendo DS. But still, regardless of the size of the screen you're playing on, Puzzle Quest 2 doesn't live up to the first one but is still plenty of fun.

    Instead of having the promised 25th anniversary, EA offers basically the same game again as last year with very few improvements and even some stuff made worse. This is not how the NFL deserves to be treated.

    Darwinia+ both looks and feels really unique. You are supposed to help the adorable little darwinien creatures to evolve and act like their god. It is somewhat slow paced and has some minor control issues, but is a really charming indie game for everyone that wants to play something different.

    If you like the previous Skate games, you'll probably like Skate 3 as well. It's a rock solid skateboarding simulation and it's both fun and easy to create your own skate parks. But if you don't want to play online, Skate 3 feels a little bit bare boned and is more like an upgrade rather than a brand new experience.

    The rivalry aspect never gets a chance to bloom as the huge open world only lets in six players at a time. The sound is astonishing and the concept of a huge world just waiting to be explored is an interesting one, but in the end Rivals never climbs beyond mediocrity.

    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2 - Retribution is probably the best game in the Warhammer 40K universe to date. It's just a little bit hard to enjoy everything when it's tormented with bugs and flaws.

    Revengeance isn't for everybody and stands for everything we don't expect from the Metal Gear series. But if you love Platinum Games' previous action titles, love j-rock and have an appetite for manga, this is the right game for you.

    Irrational Games have a lot of loose ends to tie up in the final conclusion to the Bioshock saga. And they do it well, but there is so much story and content here we can't help but think that this should have been a more full fledged retail title instead of short DLC.

    If you've ever played some of the older Lego games, you know what awaits you, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is still fun to play though and is maybe the best Lego game so far and recommended to all gamers regardless of age.
