    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is in many ways an improvement over the weak first game. The online-multiplayer works well just like the enjoyable fighting-system. The controls take some getting used to but fit the game once you’ve mastered them. The downside is that missions lack variety and the game has uninspired level-design. What remains is an enjoyable game that unfortunately doesn't impress in every way.

    Let's Tap doesn't offer a deep experience, but is still fun to play. It's an original and functional little game to play with your friends every now and then.

    Galactrix seems to forget what makes Puzzle Quest such a great game. It emphasizes on things that are irrelevant, while interesting things like building your spaceship and commencing battles are pushed into the background.

    Lost Planet 2 is a game the world will forget in just a few weeks. The action is brutal and presented in a fashionably way, but the game makes too many mistakes to really impress. The controls feel too clumsy, but the flaws are easier to overlook when playing with some buddies.

    Codename: Panzers Cold War isn't good, but isn't bad either. It will probably be overrun by the sheer quality of the other RTS games. Hardcore strategy fans will find this title too shallow, while gamers that are looking for some fast paced action will find it elsewhere.

    Although X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a game based on a film, it's made with the right intentions. The unfinished look, a total lack of any challenge whatsoever and tedious gameplay make Wolverine a little harder to digest. Perfect for filling in the gaps between busy hours. Not so perfect if you want to play all night long.

    Rag Doll Kung Fu is fun to play with when you got some friends over, but besides that the game doesn't do anything special. The movements are funny, just like the cheesy Kung Fu-jokes. In the end Rag Doll Kung Fu is a shallow and chaotic fighting game, that has neither a decent multiplayer nor an interesting single player mode.

    SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3 offers easy fun in a short single player campaign. However, the clunky controls and the overpowered A.I.-driven teammates do hamper the experience. The multiplayer mode is solid and extensive.

    Magna Carta 2 has potential, but doesn't use it properly. The battle system works well and with the real-time elements it shows JRPGs can be quick and action packed. It's sad the rest of the game doesn't match up with its characters, story and mission structure.

    Rebellion is unable to recreate the glory days of the first game. In trying, they have been way too conservative. The result is a game that looks and feels a lot like the original, which doesn’t hold up that much in this day and age. The multiplayer compensates for the single player, but not enough.

    The game means well but comes short in many ways. The simple graphics showing off peaceful backdrops combined with some relaxing music are the highlight of the experience, but the combat is too simple and boring and there’s too big of an emphasis on it. Plenty of good ideas that players don’t need to use during the game. A shame, really.

    The Crystal Bearers is a strange mix of minigames and a big adventure in a colorful fantasy world. The formula has potential and at certain points that potential actually comes to fruition, but it doesn’t happen often enough to make The Crystal Bearers anything special.

    The Aftermath is the game-version of all those movies that are brought out straight on DVD: simple entertainment to kill time with, but never anything special. Apart from the fantastic soundtrack, the game never manages to surprise.

    Saw
    While Saw becomes a bit repetitive towards the end of the game, it has surprised us in a positive way. The game has a good story, oozes with the typical horror-flick vibe and a lot of the characters and bizarre contraptions of the movies have made their way in the game. The gameplay itself however is pretty frustrating. But if you love the movies and want more, this might begin to fill your thirst for blood.

    Superstars V8 Racing isn't a game for veteran race fans but it drives well enough to please casual gamers. The game is however light on modes and the intelligence of your opponents is poor.

    Although Another Code R: A Journey into Lost Memories has a great story, the game relies too much on written dialogue. Also, puzzles in the have been simplified and challenge is nowhere to be found.

    Dante’s Inferno copies God of War in every way possible, except the part that makes God of War really good: the epic scale, the fantastic build-up and original puzzles. These elements are simply lacking in Dante’s Inferno, and what remains is a brown version of the game that it was inspired by. EA could have done better with the source material.

    Fat Princess looks delicious and, in theory, provides enough depth with her action-, RTS- and RPG-elements. But the game centers around cooperative team-play, and that doesn't happen too often when you play with other people. Most matches end up in a free-for-all where tactics aren’t anywhere to be found. On top of that your AI-teammates are dumb, the game suffers from bugs and lag and the Mage-class is far too powerful. Fat Princess just didn't become the game we wanted it to be.

    Mothership Zeta has some big pros and cons. The content it delivers is meager and gives the idea that they could have done a lot more with the variation in locations. The atmosphere and humor partly make up for this. Overall this mothership has become a place where you can enjoy yourself for a couple of hours, but because of its linear nature Mothership Zeta never comes close to the qualities of the main game.

    Sega doesn’t add much to the old formula except for one thing: the Balance Board. And it doesn’t work. You can just ignore it and use the controllers, but that’s no excuse. The Balance Board is way too imprecise when it comes to rolling monkeys down levels. The jumps and boss battles from the previous game have been axed, which is nice, but the series doesn’t seem to progress in any meaningful way. Sega must be wondering where to take this franchise next.
