    PES 2011 3D is a typical launch title, that practically begs for a sequel. The base is strong, but on a lot of points, unrefined. From the very get go you'll be able to tell that more development time would have benefited this game in many ways, but for now, it's a nice taste of whatever awaits us in the future.

    Despite the extensive options that make UFC Undiputed 2010 for the PSP almost as meaty as its console counterpart, the game has its flaws that prevent it from being as great on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    Warriors of Rock is pretty much the same as the previous Guitar Hero, with the exception of the new campaign. Curiously enough this only weakens the game. The tracklist is varied enough to warrant a purchase, but developer Neversoft will have to come up with something more original for the next game in the series.

    The over-the-top racing game, MotorStorm: Apocalypse, convinces with its spectacular concept. The game definitely shines as a multiplayer game, whether it's splitscreen or online. It's too bad though, that it doesn't play as well as its predecessor and the artificial intelligence of your opponents and arbitrary crashes will get your blood pressure to rise significantly from time to time.

    Action Henk is a fun speedrunner that constantly challenges you to improve your own runs. The game offers more depth than you would expect, but it is not really a game to play hours in a row.

    Under siege proves, that with a good control scheme, strategy games can be very playable on a console. Where the game misses strategic depth, it redeems itself by calling upon your quick strategic decisions and its high difficulty. The learning curve could've been a bit less steep though.

    It's a shame that developer Press Play couldn't create a stronger control mechanic, because the game is filled to the brim with creative puzzles and varied levels. Whenever we think Max reaches its full potential, the control scheme comes in and holds in back.

    The king of the motorsport makes a fine comeback. Thanks to the focus on arcade gameplay the game is fun to play, but the presentation is lacking and fans looking for realism should search for it elsewhere.

    Cities in Motion is an innovative and well thought through tycoon-game. By putting the focus on the managing of public transport in the cities, the game distinguishes itself from other tycoon-games. The concept has been worked out well as a whole, but the balance in gameplay could've used more refinement.

    Sports Champions is the only game in the initial Move-line-up that makes it clear how impressive the abilities of the controller are, as well as having enough gameplay to make it all worthwhile. The sports are varied and work accurately, although the presentation could've benefited from a bit more spice.

    The comeback of Medal of Honor is more or less a success, although the game obviously is more traditional than some of it's younger competitors. The singleplayer paints a realistic picture of Afghanistan, but the scripting is pretty bad. The multiplayer is hard and fast and takes some getting used to. An enjoyable package.

    The Adventure Editor is the star of the show in Galactic Adventures, and offers uncountable options to create the most crazy missions. It's a shame however that this add-on wasn't implemented better into the original game.

    The game formula doesn't reach its full potential in Action-mode. Nevertheless Gel: Set & Match is an original and entertaining puzzle game. It's not as brilliant as Super Puzzle Fighter, nor is it as accessible as Bejeweled, but with a little extra work a sequel should proof more succesful.

    Animal Crossing: Let's Go To The City can be judged in two ways. For gamers that are new to the series and for the experienced Animal Crossing gamer. For the first group Animal Crossing is a must buy if you own a Wii. For the second group the game will be one big déjà-vu. The game offers very few new and innovative elements in comparison to it's predecessor, but comes with a very strong game concept. Having this said, gamers that never played an Animal Crossing game can easily add one point to its grade.

    When you first play Time Crisis 4, you get the feeling it's basically all the same. It's not until further in the game that you get a nice new gaming experience. The game is a succesfull conversion to the console, but the arcade style hasn't changed since the first game of the series. Also the high price of the game might be a reason for many players not to buy Time Crisis 4.

    Dead Rising 2 doesn't really present anything new compared to the first game, other than the co-op and the ability to combine objects to create interesting weapons. The graphics are dated and the lack of variation in gameplay will bug a lot of players. There's still much fun to be had, thanks to the funny story, bizarre characters and millions of ways to slaughter the zombies.

    Let's face it, every RTS lover is waiting for Starcraft 2 and Red Alert 3. But don't get too focused on these two titles, because you'll miss out on, for example, WorldShift. A strategy game than looks more than fine and plays like a perfect mix between RTS and RPG. Waiting for a triple A title will be easy with WorldShift.

    Wreckateer is a Kinect-game that actually works. That alone makes it better than most other Kinect-games. It resembles Angry Birds so much that Microsoft should give a portion of its proceeds to Rovio, but that doesn't mean that Wreckateer isn't a lot of fun to play in short sessions. Many different projectiles to shoot with and a challenging score-system can't prevent boredom from setting in after longer sessions though. Consider this a nice snack.

    LEGO Batman The Videogame is the best LEGO till now. The thirty levels are, thanks to the custom made story, more than varied and offer you enough secrets to keep you busy for days. The buildings and surroundings that you see resemble the stuff that you probably built when you were just a little kid. Too bad that Traveller Tales keep making the same mistakes in their LEGO franchise.

    Army Corps of Hell has a strong base, which revolves around controlling minions like you might know from Pikmin or Overlord. Well designed enemies make for challenging games and make Army Corps an addictive experience. It could have been more than its concept, but it convinces even in this form.

    Castaway Paradise is Animal Crossing for iOS. Unfortunately the makers choose a free-to-play model and made the game a little rough around the edges, which makes it not as relaxing and addictive as Animal Crossing is.

    Toy Story 3 is a fun licensed game. It's never really excellent, but the overall experience is just fun thanks to the variation and co-op mode.

    Wallace & Grommit's Grand Adventures starts off on the right foot with Fright of the Bumblebees. Gamers who watch every episode will get the same feeling while playing this game. Add some entertaining puzzles and a friendly price tag and you know that Telltale has made yet another great adventure.

    Desktop Dungeons is typically one of those games that clicks you through the day when you're bored. The mechanics are fun, humor funny, but after a day you've pretty much seen everything there is to see.

    UNO Rush is a very entertaining, and fast paced card game that gives a nice little twist to the first Uno. The game demands little thinking and relies more on the sleight of hand, but will undoubtedly gets you playing for hours.

    Case West is not as good as Case Zero. It costs twice as much as its predecessor and the changes it has undergone don't go along with the series' roots, even though it's still a great pleasure to slaughter hundreds of zombies. If you've enjoyed Case Zero and Dead Rising 2, you will also enjoy Case West. Just not as much.

    Rock Band Unplugged brings the gameplay we know and love from the consoles to the PSP. The control feels very natural on the portable system and the soundtrack is impressive. However, Unplugged doesn't offer many new songs and the lack of multiplayer is a missed opportunity.
