    The vehicles in the game are kind of clumsy, especially the planes. Instead of gaining speed with jeeps and quads, you're better of by foot.

    The Saboteur had a lot of potential thanks to the unique setting, but this hasn’t resulted in a good game. The story never gets really interesting and the gameplay is too bare-bones to really make an impression. Not a great farewell for Pandemic Studios.

    Ghost Squad is a short and Arcady kind of shooter that is pretty nice. But the price is too high for the normal graphics and thin content.

    Heroes 2 seems to be very limited. There is some fun to be had in the arcade-mode in singleplayer, but it lacks the option to play through with a friend. The game is the first online shooter for the Wii, and 32 players simultaniously at that. In combination with the excellent controls, Heroes 2 is a recommended purchase until the real shooters arrive on the system.

    Wet
    Wet is off to a great start. The Grind house-movie-flavor works and the music is upbeat. The first four hours fly by thanks to the gameplay and a very nice looking Ruby. But after that, it gets repetitive. There's a lack of variation and challenge. When you die, you don't get the feeling it's your fault. And at the end, you get into a boss fight that's a real disappointment. Wet is a game that really entertains for a while and after that doesn't offer enough. This makes the game ideal to pick up when the price drops, to complete it on a rainy Sunday.

    Bomberman Land is an average title. The storymode is a nice challenge to play. But after some while the storymode becomes quite boring because of its repeating assignments and minigames. The game has to thank its result mostly by adding the superb original Bomberman.

    This game is meant to be played with three other people. With two or on your own, it is a boring affair. With 1800 different questions and a bunch of moviescenes, you can definitely have fun for a few nights, especially if you and your friends are movie-lovers. If you're not that much at home with the cinema, this game isn't meant for you.

    Jack Keane is a good adventure game if you are looking for some nice puzzles to spend your time with. The game doesn't convince us when it comes to the character, because that's a thing in which adventure games should be the best. A big environment and hours of gameplay makes the game worth playing, but it really misses a soul.

    It's unlucky that Nintendo already achieved the same results with Wii Sports Bowling. High Velocity Bowling is mainly the same. Throwing a ball with the Playstation controller simply isn't as smooth as the Wiimote. It's not that the game is unplayable. You just have to get used to the controls.

    As a motorcross game MX vs. ATV Untamed would have been nice to play. But the quality of the game has really been lowered by adding vehicles like buggies and monstertrucks. These could better have been removed from the game. When it comes to graphics this game can't cope with its competitors. It's a disappointing feeling to have a game in your possession which feels like an oldy.

    Zero Gravity might not be as good as the well known race games from Nintendo themselves, but this game can offer quite some fun. The levels are designed nicely and the different routes offer a lot of variation. The only real downside is the control: it's just too frustrating. This is a nice placeholder for the next Mario Kart.

    Kicking your friends ass is no longer a forbidden dream. With Facebreaker you can upload a photo of your friend or foe and start kicking the crap out of them. Sadly the game lacks a balanced singleplayer mode and offers little fighting pleasure if your on your own. But we see a bright future for Facebreaker 2.

    What is there to tell about Imperium Romanum, which isn't already been said about "Glory of the Roman Empire"? The game brings absolutely nothing new and feels like some tied together missions. Imperium Romanum is on the other hand a nice builder to play. The game is mainly a good title for newcomers in the genre.

    Blood Bowl as a board game is great, but this video game adaption is not. The bad interface and slow campaign make the game tough to get into and the steep learning curve doesn't help either.

    The PSP-version of Blood Bowl is a decent port of the PC-version and is more focused and streamlined compared to its predecessor. This goes at the cost of a few game options, but except for the online-multiplayer these will hardly be missed.

    If the game would be sold for half the price it is being sold now, than it might be interesting for the non-Aerosmith fans.

    SEGA Bass Fishing is actually not that bad. For newcomers the game will be tasty. People who have played the game before will not find this one anything more special. If fishing is your thing then this title will be fun to play. For a fishing game on the Wii, this is your best choice.

    It's a cliché, but this is a game for the fans. Not because we're scared and we can't take the horror. It's because fans are the only ones that can overlook the faults. The controls and the camera are terrible to work with. The typical Silent Hill-vibe makes up for it.

    The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return are almost the same as the older games. The only difference is the Wiimote. The game is fun for about an hour. After that we expect you will quickly find yourself a new game to enjoy. If you are able to live with that, it is worth the try.

    At first glance, Alpha Protocol has a lot of faults, like goofy animations and dated graphics. Have patience and you'll find some rewards, such as the well developed characters and the ability to really alter your own character. Still, there's too many negatives here to really enjoy yourself.

    First of all, BAJA is in no way an instant classic. But it can give you that satisfying feeling after you won a match. The steep learning curve will scare of some gamers and if you're looking for more arcade just head over to the Motorstorm camp. But if you're a fan of the off-road genre just take a shot at BAJA.

    50 Cent: Blood on the Sand doesn't take itself too seriously and never tries to be anything more than easy entertainment. If you look at the game in this perspective, then you'll have no problem in liking the game. Especially when you're playing it with a friend. But there are a few things missing, like a splitscreen and an online mode. Or a high difficulty setting. Making the game far from perfect for the experienced gamer.

    Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon is a game with a decent concept what eventually shows up in the storyline and gameplay. However, the downside of this all is the poorly translation and the somewhat disappointing graphics. In al fairness a pretty decent game, but never rises above the average spin-off game.

    H.A.W.X. does little to add something new to an almost dying genre. But it's still a pretty entertaining flight sim if you're looking for some dogfight action on your console.
