    MMA has enough moments that are worthwhile. It's just too bad that EA hasn't learned from the strong and weak points of the competition. The controls aren't always working properly and the number of modes are a little on the thin side. However, true MMA-fans will be able to ignore these faults.

    House of Wolves offers more than The Dark Below, but it does play it safe.. Especially when it comes to gameplay, House of Wolves does not offer anything new like in the Raids. But the content injection is a great thing for diehard Destiny-players, especially the Player versus Player-types.

    Resistance Retribution is a solid and well thought through action game. It offers a more than worthy part in the Resistance series, even though Sony Bend doesn't do everything right. If you want to play a great portable action game, than this is the one you're looking for.

    Tekken 6 is like the previous games, only with some badly thought-out new ideas. If you play Tekken 6 for the old, familiar modes, you’ll have the most complete and balanced game in the series. If you try out anything else, like the not so clever scenario-campaign, be prepared to be disappointed. The online-mode also has terrible lag at the moment of writing.

    BioWare is known for its storytelling but Andromeda fails on this element. It is not original, nor logical nor deep. Thankfully the tuned fighting system is brilliant, as is traveling to the beautiful planets.

    3D Dot Game Heroes is a beautiful homage to the gaming industry. It's a great adventure, but the basic gameplay will make you want to play the upcoming Zelda even more.

    Alan Wake is a decent port with a few console-characteristics that cause a few annoyances. But PC-gamers finally have the option to enjoy Alan Wake's unique and gripping story.

    G-Force is a solid movie tie-in that will please the 10- to 12-year-olds. The game doesn't do anything particularly well, but isn't doing anything wrong either. Don't expect a challenging game though, because of the repetitive elements and the helping hand that are offered it doesn't pack a punch. Of course, that’s to be expected in a children’s game.

    Drakensang is a must buy for every fantasy and RPG fanatic. Don't except a revolution or a GOTY, but except a game that has charisma and can be picked up very easily. There are some tiny flaws, but the moment that you venture into Avonturia, your troubles will be over.

    A very nice shoot 'em up with gorgeous graphics. It's a shame that de difficulty level is a quite unbalanced and that the multiplayer is absent.

    Star Ocean is a good game. But nothing more than that. Because of the outdated graphics it will probably never enter the top of the JRPG genre. Nevertheless, real JRPG fans will be drawn by the strong storyline and the unique gameplay elements and will get enough in return for their interest in the game.

    FIFA Manager 13 is immensely complete and expansive. Almost all tasks related to a team can be undertaken, but you can also let your assistants do a lot of the work. Sloppy mistakes and somewhat unbelievable moments can drag you out of the experience unfortunately, which sometimes negates the feeling that you're an actual coach.

    Command & Conquer 4 will be subject to some heavy discussion. Although the multiplayer is entertaining, the radical change in gameplay will alienate old-time fans of the series with the game. Nevertheless the game offers enough to keep you playing, mainly because of the addicting level system.

    Alice in Wonderland renews our faith in movie tie-ins. Giving its own spin to the visuals and story of the movie make this game never feel like a cheap way of making money off gamers. The intuitive stylus controls emphasize this even more. Only the repetitive fights take away a bit of glimmer.

    Mafia 3 is a great storytelling about revenge, hatred and discrimination. The setting is convincing and the game offers a lot of fun, but the open world gameplay gets repetitive very quickly with only a few missions that are actually excellent.

    Mixed feelings about this game. On the one hand Petroglyph is trying something new with totally different factions, but on the other hand it's not executed very well, a missed opportunity!

    Zeit 2 is a fresh, two-dimensional shooter. Playing with time ensures shooting everything in plain sight isn't the best tactic. This is a solid shooter with a slightly boring presentation.

    The Crimewave Edition offers a lot of content. Together with the familiar intense gameplay, this game is explosive and deep at the same time. Unfortunately the things that annoyed gamers two years ago are still there and that is a real shame.

    Split/Second has great graphics and introduces a couple of interesting new gameplay modes, but in the end the weak controls in the PC-version, the cheating AI and the lack of variety keeps this game from becoming truly great.

    The all-star cast behind Shadows of the Damned sporadically shows how creative, passionate and talented it is, but doesn't dig deep enough when it comes to game design. The game remains bizarre and stylized, and it works for a literal ride to hell.

    Order of War offers enough challenge to satisfy the purists, but it’s also surprisingly inviting for newcomers. The World War II-setting is used very well and the cinematic perspective makes for a great addition. The graphics are disappointing though, and there are tons of little nags that start to irritate after some time.

    Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a fun platform and action game, but nothing more than that. It's a decent HD-reincarnation of The Sands of Time.

    Costume Quest is sweet and addictive like the sugary goodness the game is about, but sells itself short in terms of gameplay.

    R-Type has always been a title for the tough guys. But with the new Infinite mode it's now possible for every gamer to view the ending credits. The though guys won't use the new game mode of course and are only interested in breaking the high scores. And if this is the case with you then you'll have no problem in buying R-Type. Even with the somewhat high price tag.

    Lego Rock Band tries to cater to adults and kids, but in the end isn't too successful in that. While the game certainly looks fun for everyone thanks to the use of Lego, the choice of music certainly isn't for everyone and the lack in online options can be a deal breaker as well. It's still an enjoyable music game, but not very balanced.

    Angry Birds Star Wars II doesn’t have a new concept. It does have enough new elements and an entire cast of characters to keep it interesting though. Even for those who don’t like Jar Jar.

    Quantum Conundrum might look a lot like Portal, but the execution is wholly different thanks to the four dimensions that'll change the properties of the game world and all items in it. Unfortunately an interesting context for dropping the puzzle cubes in place is absent.

    Our feelings regarding the reboot of Mirror's Edge are mixed. The parkour gameplay is amazing and it feels really quick, but all the other stuff, like the story, the open world and the RPG elements are big let-downs.
