    Shinobido 2 is a game with a few nice ideas. For instance: it has a decent pace for a stealth game with open levels that offer multiple paths. But before you'll be able to see the good that it has to offer, you'll most likely be scared off by the other awful aspects it has, like atrocious graphics, too many menus and load screens, a boring and cliché-filled story and constant repetition in gameplay.

    Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City lacks insight. It lacks good level design, good shooting mechanics or a good cover system. It can be fun to relive some recognizable Resident Evil-moments with a few friends, but for no more than half an hour. After that, you'll crave for a game with a well thought-through design.

    Fable Heroes is a beat-'em-up game that doesn't challenge, has clumsy controls, has a handful of average mini games but boasts a decent, though not optimally executed graphical style. The foremost purpose that this game serves is providing in-game gold for the upcoming Fable: The Journey.

    Be careful what you wish for. Everyone who wondered why ModNation Racers wasn't a LittleBigPlanet game to begin with, gets an answer. LittleBigPlanet Karting misses a lot of the elements present in ModNation Racers, a few of which are spunk, depth, well implemented social elements and well-built editors for karts and racers. Even the narration of Stephen Fry can't save this disaster.

    Tank! Tank! Tank! Is a questionable budget game that gets sold for nearly full price. Driving around in a tank and shooting everything into the afterlife barely manages to entertain for a few hours at the most, not in the least because levels have to be replayed over and over again. The multiplayer might entertain a bit more thanks to hectic action, but that too gets old really soon.

    Instead of an intense horror-experience with amazing action-scenes, Aliens: Colonial Marines manages to feel like an interactive extra on a bonus-dvd that came with the movie. The game is a horrible disappointment thanks to the Xeno’s lack of ferocity, the absence of an exciting story and many bad design decisions.

    God Mode tries to vary, but fails to do so completely. It comes down to being a game in which you'll shoot a lot of enemies, mindlessly running towards you. Which is as exciting and original as it sounds: not at all.

    Knights of Pen and Paper is being praised as a pocket sized Dungeons & Dragons-simulator. Because of the indie-spirit, many geeky references and addicting gameplay you might actually start to believe it. But then you’d be fooling yourself and you’re missing the essence of role playing games. This is a grinding simulator, not a night of D&D.

    Space Hulk offers little value as a videogame and is in many ways even inferior to the board game. The slow pace doesn't translate well to the digital version, with sluggish and boring games as a consequence. We'll forgive it for its lack of atmosphere and uninspired look, but that the very important multiplayer is plagued by technical problems is an unforgivable flaw.

    Castle of Illusion is badly made, and not a very good game in and of itself. This remake has no right to exist whatsoever and is better off forgotten.

    The Witch and the Hundred Knight saves its fun elements until long after the opening. By then you'll probably be long done with this game, which tells a semi-acceptable story extremely badly and regularly frustrates with its gameplay.

    This game is a boring affair where the logic in the design is nowhere to be found. Instead of the Circle of Doom, we rather prefer a Red Ring of Death.

    Too Human wants to be everything, but ends up being nothing. Buggy controls and no challenge whatsoever take out a lot of the fun. And fun is why whe play games. For an action RPG the game lacks any form of RPG depth and the action part isn't strong enough to carry the game. What remains is a dull and tedious game of killing monsters. Too Human lacks any humanity.

    The series had some good games but this latest addition doesn't convince us. The storyline and fighting are simply poor. The movements just aren't right. The developers probably had good idea, we just don't see them in-game.

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed could have been a great game, however it doesn't live up to its premise. The story and physics give a new dimension to the Star Wars franchise, but the countless technical glitches and shallow gameplay make this game a huge diasppointment that's not worth your money.

    Bomberman Land Wii is simply the weaker version of Bomberman Land Touch!. The game which was released a year ago for the NDS. The visuals and audio of the game disappionts us. The minigames are average of quality and it lacks a WiFi support. Luckily the developer has put the original Bomberman game on the disc as well. Else the result would even been lower.

    Universe at War: Earth Assault is a bad game, just as simple as that. The controls work, but the framerate and camera ruin the party. So again we keep waiting for a good strategy game on the console.

    SOCOM Confrontation feels like a dud. It feels like an old and unfinished product that will make few gamers happy. In the end SOCOM has little to offer to justify a purchase. Except when you are truly a SOCOM-fan and are willing to look beyond the flaws.

    Fishing Master is a game with quite a few negative points. Mainly the fishing is just horrible. Fishing with the Wii-Remote and the Nun-chuck is simply boring. Once you how to do it, it's all basically the same. The only advantage to the game is that you're able to buy new fishing rods and lures and join tournaments. But it doesn't compensate for the fishing system.

    Obscure II was an acceptable game on the PlayStation 2, since it was made as a former generation consolegame. The graphics are average and have some clear mistakes. The controls feel illogical and make the Wii version of Obscure II the worst game of all its console releases.

    Conflict: Denied Ops feels and plays like an early preview version of an inspireless budget game. It looks very suspicious that the devolopers might have intended to make a cheap outdated product in order to make us pay money. Even the coop mode is really unplayable. Now we understand why Eidos waited one month before sending us a review copy.

    Worms: A Space Oddity is another uninspired game which brings nothing new to the series. The special Wii-controls to use weapons is funny, but also very gimmicky. Besides that the space theme brings absolutely nothing special, unless you've always wanted to blow up blue worms.

    Unfortunately Ninja Reflex consists of only six minigames. Although the minigames have a unique concept, it becomes quite frustrating to play the same minigames over and over again. The lack of variation will make sure everyone will put this game in the closet after an hour of playing.

    Free Time is so uninspiring compared to some other Sims add-ons. The combination of developing your hobbies, making a career and maintaining your Sims is a difficult one. The add-on adds little to the concept. Only for Sims-addicts.

    Had the Playstation 3 version of Lost Planet been released as a launch game of the console, it would probably have gotten less critisism. In the meantime many better games have passed it by, which makes this one just another shooter. No one will get sleepless nights from this title.

    This is a brain trainer done bad. Even though the concept is good enough, the game does not offer any form of fun or challenge. Even the target audience, young students and seniors, won't really enjoy themselves. Dutch language is also missing, which makes this difficult for some people.

    What looks like an open world, is in fact a closed snowfield that only gives you the illusion of freedom.

    This wacky racer sucks about as much as the cartoons. There's no good reason to play this game. It's about as interactive as its cartoon brother. Better spend your cash elsewhere.

    Iron Man is a typical movie game. The game has outdated graphics, repetitive gameplay and unsatisfying controls. Almost everything in this game feels wrong. Even the official licenses and soundtrack don't do the game justice. Even Marvel fanatics should stay far away from this product.
