    It's going to be a hard struggle for EndWar to keep itself afloat in an overcrowded genre. With a pretty decent voice command system, the game does its best to bring something new to the table, but it won't be enough to win the war. Take away the controls and you'll find an RTS that offers to little to hold your attention.

    If we had to give Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World an award, it will probably be an award for putting almost the entire storyline of Dragon Ball Z into this game. Too bad that besides the compelling storyline the game also has its share of really bad mini-games. They are in fact so terrible that they takeaway a lot of the fun. Fans of the series will have no problem liking this game, the rest will probably find it a bit too difficult.

    This collection is a pretty decent compilation with some of the best titles the Mega Drive has seen. If you're one of those gamers that is still longing for the glory days of the 16 bit era then you shouldn't miss out on this title. If you're not, keep in mind that the games on this disc offer you nothing more than the games like they where back in the days. Meaning outdated graphics and squeaky noises. Something a real fan would die for.

    Mario Power Tennis doesn't work quite as well with the Wiimote as we hoped for. So if you already played Mario Power Tennis on the GameCube, there is always that feeling that you lack control. And where is the online game mode? Games like Mario kart and Super Smash Bros. Brawl have it. In the end Mario Power Tennis will do just fine on parties, but misses out on a lot of opportunities.

    Wanted: Weapons of Fate looks good and plays well. However, there isn't much that makes the game special. The tutorial teaches you some pretty amazing stuff but in the end you will hardly use any of those abilities. Besides that, there is no multiplayer mode present, making the game nothing more than average. And that's a shame knowing that the game could have been much more.

    Ninja Blade offers a mix between God of War and Ninja Gaiden and is, in more than one way, pretty action packed. Perhaps too action packed. In between the cut scenes and the end bosses there is little room for 'normal' gameplay, making it hard to really enjoy the game for the hack and slash fans. Ninjas with an appetite for destruction and giant monsters will be more than satisfied while playing Ninja Blade.

    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.
