    ​​Disney Infinity 2.0 offers the same gameplay as the first one, but with a few fun tweaks like flying and the skill tree. It's not perfect. The figurines stand for an expensive experience and the starter kit offers a very short Play Set.

    War of the Roses attempts to make you feel like an actual knight who takes part in enormous battles in the middle-ages. Once you master the gameplay you can become the hero of the battlefield, if your timing was correct and you're not lacking any tactical insight. War of the Roses rewards you well for these traits, but that doesn't make it a great game.

    The slow gameplay and sensitive controls ensure that Gravity Crash isn’t for everyone. When you take the time to master the controls, you’ll get a game with very deep gameplay and warm, vector-like graphics that are a joy to watch. Both the multiplayer and the level editor lengthen the experience.

    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.

    Bugbear is back, and how! They magically transformed the Ridge Racer-franchise to a Hollywood blockbuster on steroids, without losing track of the race-element. Unbounded is challenging, fast, varied and offers sufficient options to play it again, and again, and again.

    Action Henk is a fun speedrunner that constantly challenges you to improve your own runs. The game offers more depth than you would expect, but it is not really a game to play hours in a row.

    Mirror of Fate is a good game. Take Lords of Shadow, cut the playing time in half, limit the third dimension to an optical illusion and what remains is an action adventure game that plays like a dream. The only real concession that was made is a story that hardly adds anything, which makes this feel more like a spin-off. That's a shame, because it was supposed to be the link between Lords of Shadow and LoS 2.

    Bully offers a wide and open world in which you can roam freely. Ad some freaky characters and a one of a kind feel and you'll get bully. Too bad the game lost some of its powers over the last two years and that the overal look and gameplay of Bully feels a little outdated. If you've never played Bully you'll probably will have a blast, otherwise it's best to save some of that money for one of the other hundred or so titles that will be released this winter.

    A very nice shoot 'em up with gorgeous graphics. It's a shame that de difficulty level is a quite unbalanced and that the multiplayer is absent.

    RACE Pro wasn't easy to judge. On one hand it offers a very distinct and unique type of gameplay that we've never seen before on the Xbox 360. On the other hand the game doesn't do a lot of good in particular areas and it has a somewhat unfinished feeling hanging over it. Only a true race fanatic can play the game without getting annoyed. If you 're not, just stick to Forza 2.

    Commanders is a fine addition to Xbox LIVE Arcade. Not only does this game fall under the genre that has a lacklustre presence on Microsoft's online service, it is also an excellent title in itself. If you like Advance Wars on the DS, this game will be right up your alley. The graphics make the game feel fresh and give it its own face.

    Overlord is still a very nice game a year after the original release. The graphics are a bit dated though, and the PlayStation 3 version isn't adding anything really fresh from the original, even though the developers had plenty of time.

    Trash Panic is typical Japanese. It has a weird but touching style, a difficulty level that will make you break your controller in half and has the same addiction level of the hardest of hard drugs.

    Naruto: Clash of a Ninja Revolution is a very entertaining fighting game. The combat system works just fine and the storyline is pretty compelling. Too bad that the game doesn't have a lot of improvements over the last Naruto, making it a game that does little to renew the series.

    The Journey Down is so heavily inspired by the LucasArts-adventures of fifteen years ago, that you'd almost call it plagiarism. But that's good news, because dear old uncle George doesn't make them anymore. Unfortunately, just the first chapter is available. And by the time the world and story manage to grab you, it's over.

    A new track-list and a variety of fun features make Just Dance 2015 a nice dance game. But the lag and the fact that only one profile can be used in multiplayer are a big party-stopper.

    We are glad Ubisoft took the risk of making an Assassin's Creed in which you play the villain instead of the hero. The game might run on old techniques and mechanics, it feels surprisingly new.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Against all odds, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe turns out to be a very entertaining game. The characters that actually made it into the game are more than welcome and the chosen super hero's (and villians) are a perfect fit. The difficulty of the game is kept simple. Just the way it should be in a Mortal Kombat game. But, make sure that you have some friends over when you start playing the game, because it offers little fun for just one player.

    Boing! Docomodake has a very interesting concept. On paper that is. Too bad that the idea doesn't make a good game. The game itself lacks liveliness and creativeness and does an absolute minimum of what you expect. Sometimes you do have the think about a solution, but most of the time you'll instantely know what to do without even blinking your eyes.

    The game formula doesn't reach its full potential in Action-mode. Nevertheless Gel: Set & Match is an original and entertaining puzzle game. It's not as brilliant as Super Puzzle Fighter, nor is it as accessible as Bejeweled, but with a little extra work a sequel should proof more succesful.

    It has been a long time coming, but Star Ocean: The Last Hope has finally found the spotlight on the Xbox 360. The game offers a great amount of depth, a varied visual presentation and the battle system works well. While not a classic, this Japanese RPG does not disappoint fans of the genre.

    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.

    This is the best and best looking Dragon Ball Z game that has been made. Every fan should buy this game.

    Resonance of Fate tackles things fairly uniquely and that takes some getting used to. When you have the patience to learn the ropes, there’s an addicting and original adventure waiting for you. It’s not so much about the story or surrounding as it is about grinding to level up, though.

    Rain brings up the poet in you. With a beautiful soundtrack, refined story and a style that oozes beauty, it keeps you looking for a deeper meaning. That makes for an intriguing experience, although the stylish bubble has a tendency of breaking and the simple gameplay becomes an obstacle.

    It's a shame that developer Press Play couldn't create a stronger control mechanic, because the game is filled to the brim with creative puzzles and varied levels. Whenever we think Max reaches its full potential, the control scheme comes in and holds in back.

    This game is without doubt a very decent beat 'em up that will occupy you for several hours. The small changes in this sequel don't make this the big hit that the Wii could have used this early in the year, but anyone who takes pleasure out of fighting games and anime will have fun with this. Owners of the previous game have got to ask themselves if the online mode and a few new characters are worth the purchase.
