    The first Inazuma Eleven on the 3DS doesn’t do anything to lift this entertaining franchise to greater heights. The soccer games are fun, but everything around it disappoints a little. Part three keeps its head above the water with its charming and fluent gameplay, but it could’ve been more.

    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.

    Get comfortable and grab a dictionary: word-wizard Maxwell is out on a quest to save lives. Don’t expect an innovative sequel, Scribblenauts Unlimited is the improved version of a known concept.

    Ubisoft hasn't succeeded in getting the full potential from Shaun White Snowboarding. Some gameplay elements, like the enormous freedom and control, aren't that fantastic in the end. But the good online mode and the beautiful surroundings make up for it.

    Rise of the Argonauts has its share of flaws, nevertheless it really draws you into a compelling storyline of glory and romance. The combat system appears to be very simplistic but actually offers fresh new combos and a very decent RPG-system. The conversations between Jason and his Argonauts are interesting enough, even though the game sometimes offers you voice samples that are hard to understand. Add gameplay that offers less freedom than your average prison, a lack of a decent HUD and some minor bugs and you'll get a game that needs some courage to be played.

    The Director’s Cut makes puzzle game Q.U.B.E. more complete, but also harder. It is too bad the lousy story takes away all the mystery of the original.

    The game has some nice action, original weapons and funny endbosses. The game isn't very original though, and it's more of the same. So if you are bored to death and have some money left, then Dark Sector could be a nice solution. But don't expect an earthquake in this genre.

    Mafia II's strong points are the story and believable gameworld, as well as an authentic atmosphere. Unfortunately the game doesn't take enough risk and as a result makes less impact than the original. Players don't get enough freedom to come up with their own creative solutions during missions. It also doesn't help that there is a lot of filler during the missions.

    White Knight Chronicles feels too old. That’s not without reason: the game appeared in Japan a year and a half before the European release. The end result isn’t worthy of the Level 5-name, even though the hardcore RPG-fanatic will gain some satisfaction from the gameplay.

    Driveclub VR is mostly a rebuild of the standard PS4-game, but the VR-part does offer a new experience. Too bad it is not an experience that you cannot miss.

    Looking for a game to kill some time with? Then Dumb Ways to Die is a fun solution. It’s quite charming and has a high pace. Unfortunately it gets repetitive fast, because there’s only twelve mini games.

    It's cute, it's clever and it can be replayed a million times. Not fair that Europeans have to pay twice as much for this game as the Americans!

    With a different type of animal as the key role, Shelter 2 is radically different from its predecessor. This makes the game unique, but it does not leave the same deep impression as the first Shelter. That being said, this interactive nature documentary is special on its own.

    The Endless Runner-genre makes perfect sense combined with Sonic. It’s running and jumping without too much mush, with some funny and logical references to the Sonic-world. Despite is being a somewhat lazy game that isn’t special in any regard, it doesn’t do anything wrong. It’s exactly like Temple Run, but with a different look. We still prefer Temple Run though, mainly because it’s free.

    With Quest for Booty Insomniac Games shows that downloadable games are turning into a serious gaming-platform. Quest for Booty offers action and gameplay elements that are more than worthy for the platform genre. You even take the minor flaws the game has (no new features whatsoever and -in comparison with Tools of Destruction- limited possibilities) for granted when you see the price.

    The Valley of the Yetis is not high class DLC that adds to the original at all fronts, but it does offer a beautiful, new environment in which you can discover adventures and explosions.

    The controls might look simple at the beginning, but you'll soon find out that the game has more depth than you thought.

    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.

    A very good platformer, that's the best description we can give you about Jungle Beat. The level design is superb and fits the combo-making gameplay perfectly. Even on the graphical side the game doesn't fail to impress. However, the experience is very short and lacks the very entertaining Bongo controller that made the Gamecube version so much fun.

    Theatrhythm Final Fantasy isn't original, brilliant or new in any way. You tap and swipe the touch screen of the 3DS to the rhythm of the melodies, like we've done in countless other games before it when this genre was way more popular. This musical puzzle game isn't anything special unless you've played a lot of other Final Fantasy games.

    Pilotwings could be considered as a tech demo in a way. Its premise doesn't divert from a list of missions to go down and complete and doesn't use all of the 3DS's capabilities. But the feeling of freedom and peaceful music make for a calming playing-experience.

    If you like the single player part of Red Alert 3 that you will love Uprising. New missions, units and a brand new Commander's Challenge offer plenty hours of gameplay. If you love the multiplayer part of Red Alert 3 than there isn't much to be loved in Uprising. Because there isn't any. You'll just have to wait until the inevitable multiplayer add-on.

    The old game mechanic of Breakout and Arkanoid is still fun, thanks to some successful additions. Hyper Breaker Turbo just doesn’t dare to be as hyper or turbo as its title might have you think.

    Bizarre Creations delivers a different kind of shooter that will attract a specific kind of gamer. The boring setting and combo-system don't bring this game to the absolute top, but the addicting gameplay makes up a lot. If they put more effort in a possible sequel, it might become a classic in this new subgenre.

    A game that sold 24 million copies is being re-released on the 3DS, with extra functions, three dimensional images and horribly cute kittens. It looks like Nintendogs + Cats will turn out to be another success, because the concept remains unchanged. Also, the dogs might have actually become cuter. It's a shame though, that the cats hardly have the amount of options that the dogs do.

    It is not a big change from other LEGO games, but The Force Awakens sure is a game that is great for co-op between people of different age groups. The new parts in which you shoot taking shelter are pretty underwhelming though, especially when playing this game by yourself.

    Thanks to a bunch of different game modes, multiplayer action and the possibility to create your own unique wrestler, WWE Legends of Wrestlemania turns out to be a very complete and over the top wrestling game. And if you add up the tons of content that you can unlock by throwing your opponent through the ring, it only gets better. The game is far from perfect, but if you dig sweaty men in spandex than you will dig WWE Legends of Wrestlemania.
