    Secret Angent Clank is a game with two personalities. It has the sneak missions with Ratchet, with an irritating camera, and the action missions with Captain Qwark, which are very entertaining. If you can handle some frustration, this game might be a nice snack for in between.

    The new and improved puzzle-styled Tenchu: Shadow Assassins is a step in the right direction for the series. Nevertheless the game has little to do with the original Tenchu, making it a strange experience for the Tenchu veteran. But if you're open to it, Tenchu: Shadow Assassins will offer a very entertaining fifteen hours of ninja-power.

    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.

    With a beautiful, dream-like style Lucidity grabs you almost instantly. But while playing it slowly loses its grip. The concept knows too many flaws and irritations to keep you fascinated and the story is too minimal to provide a counterbalance.

    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.

    Unfortunately, London 2012 is nothing more than the Olympics for button bashers. The mix of quick-time events makes it somewhat less painful, but that doesn't change the fact that it's an unpolished game. There are decent aspects to it, but there's more to gain from the world's largest sporting event.

    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.

    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.

    The basic gameplay isn’t very interesting and the battles are incredibly repetitive. On the other hand the gameworld looks the part and the story unfolds in a satisfying way. Fans of the movie could give this game the benefit of the doubt, but just barely.

    Outdated graphics, exploding heads and nazi zombies; this co-op zombie shooter is a straightforward game without any distractions. One sniper and three friends equal shallow entertainment in this game.

    Zombie Apocalypse could have been entertaining and great. In comparison to other zombie games the developers deliver a game in which you will kill more zombies than ever for less money. It's a shame Zombie Apocalypse gets repetitive very soon though, and gives you the idea you're just running in circles. The multiplayer make up for it a little, but we can't call it more than a mediocre game.

    F1 2011 could have been so much more. We can't complain in terms of content and online functionalities, but why does it look like a port of a PSP-title and slide the cars across the road like they're driving on ice? You'll learn to deal with this last flaw, but it does greatly diminish the racing experience.

    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.

    Bleach Shattered: Blade is an average game. There is actually nothing wrong with the game, but it's also not that special. Die-hards of this series might find satisfaction in buying this game, but other people are advised to ignore this game.

    At first glance Watchmen looks like a nice surprise with its beautiful style and delicious combat system. But after a while the repeating level design and gameplay elements will have you thinking otherwise. Nevertheless, we'll be waiting for episode two, because we're convinced that there is light and the end of the tunnel.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Comic Jumper: The Adventure of Captain Smiley switches between different styles of gameplay and graphics, which keeps things varied. But it fails to stay interesting and fun. The humor isn't meant for everyone which can result in irritation irritated by.

    There's really not much wrong with WRC 3. The controls are fine, cars are varied and the different game types and courses make for an interesting rally experience. The audiovisual presentation isn't of the same level though, which results in a lack of sensation in the gameplay. It also gets bogged down by some irritating mistakes.

    Captain America: Super Soldier delivers solid entertainment, be it short. The original story lacks a proper introduction and the smooth combat-system feels somewhat borrowed, but that doesn't spoil the fun. The flat AI and graphical issues do, unfortunately.

    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.

    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.

    Toki Tori 2 is fully built around the idea of being something simple and grand at the same time. And indeed, it manages to surprise you again and again with interesting puzzles, despite only being able to do two things. Unfortunately it can be completely unclear what you're supposed to be doing at times. This is exacerbated by an unclear map that doesn't encourage backtracking. Toki Tori 2 is therefore sometimes slightly too grand to retain simplicity.

    Quantum of Solace isn't a bad game, but certainly not a great one either. It doesn't really feel like a Bond-game either, but in the end the movies don't either. It's a fun game but there are certainly better shooters on the market right now.

    The game is not for everybody, but we as a Dutch website really enjoyed the story from Frisian history. This is the most fun a history lesson can get.

    The world of Kholat is magnificent, but the promises of a cool story and memorable gaming experience do not really come true. Using the map and compass are fun, but frustration and boredom are near. Too bad, because especially the Dyatlov Pas-incident is a good subject for a game.

    Nail'd does a great job in giving you the feeling of speed and height. The game doesn't make it challenging enough to keep you coming back for more though. These days, even an arcade racer needs more than just the thrill of speed.

    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.
