    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.

    Yo-Kai Watch 2 is not a bad game, it is a bad sequel. It is so good to newcomers to the franchise, that the fans need to be extremely patient to stay interested.

    This is not the relaxed, goalless Animal Crossing you know, this mobile version is just about money making. Very disappointing.

    Massive Chalice tries to make the concept of Xcom better by letting you form full bloodlines. Too bad the looks and the level design are not the high quality of Xcom.

    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.

    Let It Die is a pretty crazy action RPG that can take a lot of your time. The game is free to play, but does not make you pay every five seconds, which is great.

    At this moment, this might be the best version of State of Decay, but it is definitely not the best version we can think of. The game still is very buggy and there is still no co-op mode. We still love this deep zombie survival game, but it simply could have been so much more.

    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.

    Dungeon Siege 3 doesn't do anything special and the controls can get quite annoying. But with The Witcher 2 fresh on the market and Skyrim and Diablo III still on the horizon, Dungeon Siege 3 can be a descent way to get through the quit summer months. If your cooperative partner is willing to join you without getting anything in return, that is.

    Primordia is proof that Wadjet Eye doesn't develop amazing games. This point-and-click adventure tells a good story in an interesting world, but is troubled by some annoyances and a lack of innovation.

    Wolfenstein has two sides. Sometimes, there are an awful lot of Nazi’s and there’s bullets flying right past you all the time, immersing you in the game. Other times, you just wish you could blast a bullet through main character B.J. Blazkowicz’s own head after walking through another boring alley in Isenstadt. Nevertheless, the biggest part of Wolfenstein was played with a big grin on our face. It’s a decent addition to a classic franchise.

    Champions Online has a unique vibe to it. Everything is customizable so you can make the superhero you always dreamed of being. Unfortunately there are not many options to work together with other players.

    Brink feels like a breath of fresh air in the shooter genre, but turns out the victim of its own ambitions. That's mainly due to the large amount of potential that Brink holds, which is why it fails at other essential shooter-elements. Nothing's wrong with the way it plays and the class-system, but the lack of a decent amount of game-modes and maps, the below-average artificial intelligence and the constant network-delays, make it so that the qualities of Brink only show themselves very sporadically.

    Papo & Yo is worth playing for the heart wrenching story alone. It tells about a boy who tries to rid his father of his alcohol addiction and runs into a lot of problems along the way. It's heavy material that's being told to you in a beautiful and emotional manner.

    Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs isn't as much of a game as its predecessor, and gets less frightening after a while. If you wouldn't have to change your underwear 17 times we'd even go as far as to describe this as an interactive novel. At those times the game shines with an intelligent and nauseating storyline. It's just a shame that gameplay elements from The Dark Decent were unnecessarily sacrificed for that.

    The wall that Tower Defense Play! hits is the fact that there are better tower defense games available. Its badly executed and the jokes have all been heard before. The only thing that makes this game worth a chance is the co-op mode, so you can try and enjoy it with three friends.

    Killing for money is almost as good as gaming for money. That's why Mercenaries 2 is in theory a great game. But three and a half years after the first Mercenaries there hasn't been much of a change. Even the same antique design flaws are still present. Nevertheless the sheer size of the game and ability to destroy almost anything makes up for a lot of ground.

    Despite the subtle and underwhelming changes the game has undergone, MotoGP 10/11 is a better and more realistic race-game than its predecessor. There remains room for improvement, but the developer seems to be on the right track.

    This game is better on a handheld system, but it's visual style does look excellent on a bigger screen. The game mixes music and RPG elements perfectly.

    If you have downloaded Tetris Party already, skip Party Deluxe. It is an updated WiiWare-game that does not differ very much from its predecessor. However, if you are desperately looking for new Tetris challenges, alone or with friends, and you did not download the original, you will be entertained by this game.

    A well done sequel to the successful first game. The controls and AI could’ve used some extra attention, but the large selection of different sports and a few fictional ones, combined with the familiar faces of Mario and Sonic and their friends, make up for it.

    This might sound like a dating game, it is mostly a story about fatherhood. Beautiful art and entertaining stories, but not enough depth to really shine.
