    Metal Slug 7 has survived the transition between arcade an the Nintendo DS. The only thing that we really missed was the co-op mode. What, in al fairness, is almost like a stab to the heart. Gamers who never played a Metal Slug game before be aware, the game offers only seven levels that will last for only an hour or two. However, for the fans this is just what the doctor ordered, action in Metal Slug style!

    Zombies aren't seemingly unhealthy looking people for a change. They have been replaced by purple blocks, which don't make them any less terrifying. This game offers an especially deep strategic experience with an abstract art style, but also comes with an unnecessarily steep learning curve and lacking an actual campaign.

    For he who loves to conquer, Demigod offers addictive gameplay and a game that distinguishes itself by being relatively unique. Too bad the game lacks depth and fails to explain the odd gameplay in a decent manner. Thus making the game fail in achieving a god-like status.

    PopCap and Square-Enix come together to create a successful puzzle-RPG. The well thought out game mechanics ensure that you keep on playing to get another reward. On the other hand, the game costs a lot of time and after a few hours you can’t help but wonder what on earth you’ve been doing for the past couple of hours.

    The Tomb of Sammun-Mak isn't as strong as season opener The Penal Zone, but still delivers solid puzzles and hilarious jokes. Furthermore, the many references to earlier episodes and the strong origin story are bound to put a smile on the faces of every fan of the original two seasons.

    Freedom Wars feels like the result of an ambitious team that gave up halfway. The missions where you fight against giant robots are much fun, especially because they distract from the many problems that occur in this game.

    Etherium is a solid science-fiction RTS. It does not bring a lot of new things to the table, but it still is very entertaining. The tutorial is a bit short, we miss depth in this game and the design is not always as smooth as we would have liked. But, this games holds our attention for way longer than we would have expected. Etherium is highly addictive because of its high difficulty level and strategy elements.

    Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood has a unique and action packed setting and offers some interesting gameplay mechanics.

    Fairytale Fights is a product Dutch gamers can be proud of. When playing alone, the game offers many hours of enjoyment in lush environments. Better yet, these environments will soon be painted red with the blood of your opponents. The multiplayer is a little hectic and falls short, though.

    With this fourth attempt, studio Milestone is finally on the right path and manages to deliver a good rally game. WRC: FIA World Rally Championship 4 offers a decent experience, mostly thanks to the nice controls and career mode. Unfortunately it doesn’t look as good as it should nowadays and it feel pretty unpolished.

    Highborn offers insight into what happened to the disbanded Westwood studio. Beneath a thick layer of dry, American humor is a decent strategy game, that’ll provide lonely strategists with an evening of fun.

    This game renews itself in an odd way: the interface, which made a lot of progress in the last few years, has gotten a few illogical changes which feel like a few steps back. That being said, there is no better football management game on the market right now.

    The Dutch Verdun offers a great representation of the First World War. You really feel like you are in the middle of the war, having to fight for your life. But the framerate issues, the limited number of maps and the progression system with its ups and downs cause so much frustration throughout the game, that it is really hard to stay focused on the war instead of the technical issues of the game.

    Look up ‘old-school’ in the dictionary and it might very well have a screenshot of Might & Magic X included. Gamers that grew up with turn & tile-based RPG’s will get exactly what they remember, including technical faults. Newcomers might just run for their lives.

    Eidos did her best in turning a mediocre game into a decent game. The thought behind Battlestations: Midway was fine, but the game clearly needed some adjustments to impress the spoiled gamer. In Battlestations: Pacific Eidos made those adjustments, turning this one into a much better game then it's predecessor ever was. Too bad that the storyline fails to get your attention and that the missions are somewhat slow in comparison to the fast paced action.

    Zeno Clash is a very strange game with a lot of atmosphere. It's hard to describe how the game presents itself; you'll have to see it to understand it. Because of its modest price tag, this is definitely worth checking out for everyone who appreciates an action packed and strange experience or someone who is looking for something original. It's only a shame it's such a short experience.

    Hohokum is a spherical adventure without direction. What sets out as an interactive screensaver turns into a puzzle game without a manual. The lack of instructions feels refreshing at first, but it becomes a little frustrating when backtracking and difficult navigation become more prominent. This repetition distracts you from the phenomenal design and soundtrack.

    We would have liked to see more innovations in Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja 3 other than the added online capabilities. The game is still one of the better and most accessible fighting games available for the Wii. The lack of a Japanese voice option and the inconsistent difficulty remain something that holds this game back from true greatness.

    Thanks to the amount of tasks, collectibles and a pretty good story, AC Unity is enjoyable. The newly introduced multiplayer co-op experience is thrilling too. What a pity that bugs, odd looking visuals and other flaws keep this game from being an enticing experience.

    XenoVerse gets the MMORPG treatment on next-gen consoles. You can customize your own character and even the plot has changed. And that change is not always for the better: the new features are not developed properly, which makes Xenoverse first and foremost a fighting game like others.

    Puzzle Quest 2 improves the Puzzle Quest formula in almost every way and makes us forget the mediocre Puzzle Quest: Galactrix.

    Jazzpunk is a rare comedian in games. As an adventure it doesn’t have much to offer, but the game succeeds in its primary goal: surprising its audience and getting them to laugh.

    Wolfenstein has two sides. Sometimes, there are an awful lot of Nazi’s and there’s bullets flying right past you all the time, immersing you in the game. Other times, you just wish you could blast a bullet through main character B.J. Blazkowicz’s own head after walking through another boring alley in Isenstadt. Nevertheless, the biggest part of Wolfenstein was played with a big grin on our face. It’s a decent addition to a classic franchise.

    Building MX vs. ATV Reflex from the ground up has had a positive result in a way. Rider Reflex and terrain deformation make the motocross- and ATV races very challenging. The rest of the vehicles seem to have been neglected by the developer and disturb the balance of the game during the mixed races. Despite the flaws the game will still be very much enjoyed by fans of the sport.

    Hell & Damnation is a successful homage to the original Painkiller with a new engine, much better graphics and the same fast-paced style. It's pretty sad though, that the most fun multiplayer mode doesn't get played a lot. That would've extended the durability of the game significantly. Especially because the single player gameplay will get boring quite quickly if you don't take a break every now and then.

    In spite of a few flaws, Ghostbusters: The Videogame gives fans the experience they have been waiting for. Hunting and catching ghosts is fun, especially when playing online with friends. The original cast and locales return in this videogame adaptation and the attention to detail is great. As a result, you really get the feeling of being in a Ghostbusters movie.

    Rhythm Paradise is fun to play. Even though the game has no groundbreaking gameplay elements and has it share of flaws. Furthermore Rhythm Paradise distinguish itself through a unique style of audio and visual and it's rhythmic gameplay. Add a low price tag and you've got yourself a interesting videogame.

    Fable 2 Pub Games is a nice little bonus for people planning to play Fable 2. It's free when pre-ordering, so you can start collecting money and items even before Fable 2's out. It's great as a free extra, but you should not buy it for 800 points on Marketplace.

    Sakura Wars is quite a strange beast. The combination of the fighting and keeping up social contacts, paired with the familiar Japanese graphical style, makes for an interesting mix. Even though it's far from perfect, this game keeps on surprising.

    As a horror game, Home doesn't succeed fully, but the dark retro style is worth a compliment. Thanks to the fun design, potential freedom of choice but also the limited execution of it leaves players with an unsatisfied feeling.
