    A lovely, fun kartracer that’s worth playing alone or with friends. It may not be original, but the variety in tracks, recognizable characters and tight controls make this a great alternative for Mario Kart.

    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.

    The comeback of Medal of Honor is more or less a success, although the game obviously is more traditional than some of it's younger competitors. The singleplayer paints a realistic picture of Afghanistan, but the scripting is pretty bad. The multiplayer is hard and fast and takes some getting used to. An enjoyable package.

    Though Cyber Sleuth can get a bit grindy, the systems and the story that come with it are fascinating enough to keep you occupied for hours. This is the perfect grindgame for those long summer nights.

    Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a fun platform and action game, but nothing more than that. It's a decent HD-reincarnation of The Sands of Time.

    Jazzpunk is a rare comedian in games. As an adventure it doesn’t have much to offer, but the game succeeds in its primary goal: surprising its audience and getting them to laugh.

    Fallout 4 was a strong game, but it had some weak spots when it came to the visuals, the challenge, the storytelling and the RPG elements. Bethesda obviously listened to the critique, as Far Harbor actually is a tad better than the original game.

    Zombies aren't seemingly unhealthy looking people for a change. They have been replaced by purple blocks, which don't make them any less terrifying. This game offers an especially deep strategic experience with an abstract art style, but also comes with an unnecessarily steep learning curve and lacking an actual campaign.

    If you do not let the graphics get the best of you, Atelier Sophie is a great game to spend time with, full of cute girls and explosives.

    Although WWE All Stars offers mild depth with its counter-system, it's mostly an easily accessible fighting-game meant for the nostalgic WWE-fan. One side-note: the WWE-series with oversimplified controls, faster gameplay and a catroony style turned the series around a different corner. The real WWE-fan – excluding the average gamer – might mourn over this. As a nice, quickly satisfying game, WWE All Stars is a fine and refreshing choice.

    Grow Home introduces an innovative mechanic and fun gameplay to go with it. The game is too short and does not offer a lot of replay value. It does not stay fascinating.

    The iPad isn't exactly the ideal platform for an action game, but it doesn't get any better than the experience Max Payne offers. It's still a classic, with a gripping story and amazing action. Players might get tangled up in the controls from time to time, but for the ridiculously low price it's offered on the app store, it's a game you shouldn't miss.

    Supreme Commander 2 shows that RTS-games can work on a console. The graphics aren’t on par with the PC-version, but in exchange you get an overall smooth experience. It’s a shame that the already empty multiplayer can’t compensate for the short and easy singleplayer on the Xbox 360, because an AI just can’t replace human competition.

    Operation 7 is a good multiplayer shooter and best of all, free. The game offers fast paced gameplay and incentive to play it for a long period of time.

    Thanks to Rapstar we now finally have a karaokegame that makes us rap instead of sing. The problem is Rapstar can't decide if its for the hardcore hiphop-fan or the mainstream listener. And why on earth is the foul language edited out?

    Ridge Racer is all about a couple of things: fast cars, pretty environments and especially well timed powerslides. This First trip to the 3DS doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it doesn't try to, which is why it turned out great for the fans of the series. Those fans won't be bothered by the lack of racetracks. Hopefully that'll be rectified in a sequel, just like a much needed online-mode.

    While it won't make you the next Van Gogh or Cézanne, Art Academy certainly provides you with the basic toolset to develop your dormant talent. However, it doesn't come close to replacing the real thing.

    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.

    After years of uninspired movie-licensed games, we finally get to run, fly and drive around with the Transformers and be happy about it. The lacking AI and unvaried fighting sections kill some of the fun, but the game does have a lot of redeeming factors and with a second player you'll feel right at home.

    The season finale of The Wolf Among Us is well written and exciting from beginning to end. It’s a nice closure, but there’s a little nasty catch on Telltale’s part: put down the controller and the big bad wolf continues to run, punch and puff without you.

    Mix Warcraft with Magic the Gathering and you'll get BattleForge. It's not a bad mix, but you'll have to get used to it. The learning curve is pretty steep and rookies will get their asses kicked within seconds. But, the game rewards the one that keeps trying with some tasteful gameplay and a delicious fantasy topping.

    The Evil Within is a true return to form. Not just for Shinji Mikami, but for the whole survival horror genre this is a great title. Anyone that grew up with games like Resident Evil or Silent Hill will be enjoying this game to the fullest.

    This is a challenging and accessible turn-based strategy game that will keep you playing for a long time. The tactical options are great and the hand-drawn visual style is very nice, though the story does not really shine like the rest of this very enjoyable game.

    Frontlines: Fuel of War is a decent shooter in single player and an enjoyable game when it comes to multiplayer. On the other hand we can't take away the impression that both single and multiplayer didn't get enough attention, which makes it clear that this game didn't reach it's full potential.

    The Night of the Rabbit is a special point-and-click adventure game, although only the veterans amongst players will get to see that side of the game. Not because of the flipped, tricky puzzles, because those are known to the genre. But mostly because game makes a wrong, childish impression in its first hours. It's hard to expect a beautiful and exciting fable after such a start.

    Roundabout makes no sense at all, which is why it is so great. The incredibly cheesy movies in between the gameplay, the spinning car you have to control: it’s all so strange yet so charming. There’s some frustration looking, but the well thought out humour makes you forget about it.

    Naruto is a great action game that lives up to its series with ease. What stands out is the overal quality of the graphics, sound and the unique battle system. Unfortunatly there will be no 'friends battle frenzies' because of a total absence of any type of online play. Nevertheless Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm adds a new breeze of fresh air in the fighting genre and even the players that are new to the Naruto world will enjoy this game.

    A ballet of violence, that is what Not A Hero offers. If it works, it feels like magic, but it is too bad that the fun violent gameplay gets interrupted by slower and more boring moments.

    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.
