    HAWX 2 delivers intense aerial combat and some spectacular views, but gets repetitive after a while and can be very frustrating in single-player mode. Make sure you can play coop before you buy.

    Despite having a compelling and entertaining multiplayer aspect, Dungeon Siege III falls a bit flat with its traditional, old and uninspired gameplay. A rather boring storyline and bad voice acting makes this game just another one in the bunch of failed challengers to the Diablo throne.

    Shadow Puppeteer has the potential to be a really good game, if the developers at Sarepta Studio can get rid of the teething problems that are disruptive of the experience at the moment. The game features clever puzzles and difficult boss battles, and is worth a try when more of the bugs are removed.

    The weapons feel great, it's fun to navigate the levels, and some of the boss fights are pretty fun. Shadows of the Damned has a comfortable base level, it just lacks the peaks to make it great.

    The end of the world has been portrayed in many ways, but no one has done in a way so grey and bland as I Am Alive. The concept itself is quite good, and at times it's really enjoyable to traverse the dusty town of Haventon, playing a psychological game with it's pesky inhabitants. Most times though, it simply is a clumsy and mediocre experience.

    MXGP offers realistic challenges in the mud, but the lack of entertaining modes shortens the game's lifespan.

    This is the best Mario Kart experience one can get without owning a Wii, with party graphics and clever courses. Entertaining for console gamers of all ages.

    The solid mechanics of the Civilization series are not enough to lift this game up to its potential. It fails to differentiate itself from Civ V and is lacking in inspiration and soul. A missed opportunity to create something great.

    Ryse: Son of Rome is a game with great potential and even greater production value, but the experience is muddled with repetitive combat, recycled enemies and a general feeling of being rushed towards the Xbox One's launch.

    Puzzle Agent 2 does nothing to differentiate itself from what it's predecessor did a year ago. It offers the same structure, the same length and the same types of puzzles. Unfortunately, it ends up seeming more like the second half of a complete work than a whole new adventure.

    This years edition of PCM contains the bare minimum of innovation. Still entertaining for fans of the series, but hardly enough improvements to warrant a warm reccomendation.

    The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is a decent adventure game with some interesting elements like the "deduction board". It depicts old London in a good way, but sadly it feels a bit rushed and doesn't have any lasting appeal.

    There are traces of a good game in Julius Styles: The International, but they vanish in a sea of failed attempts. The developers clearly set their sights beyond the mediocre, integrating puzzles, combat and a complex dialog system lifted from big-budget titles like Alpha Protocol. Unfortunately, the developers possess neither the budget nor the know-how to implement these ideas properly, and they end up turning what would otherwise be a merely mediocre title, into a truly terrible one.

    The second episode of the Cognition series is a big improvement of the first episode, with a more purposeful direction and less backtracking between locations. Erica's psychic powers also take on a more central part of overall gameplay, but could be given an even greater focus. Writing is also improved, with the developers clearly having a good grasp of what makes a psychological thriller such as this work well. Sadly, there's just too little of it to earn it a higher grade.

    With Fire and Sword is an expansion that adds very little to the Mount&Blade experience. It's still a solid game, but one would expect more innovation. Still, the hectic battles on horseback leave the player with a brutal appreciation for medieval combat.

    Kairosoft games are some of the most charming titles you'll ever experience on mobile platforms, but the touch interface struggles to hold up when the games' complexity increases. With Pocket Academy, the interface gets in the way for a game whose intricacies are as fascinating as its quirky farm-school hybrids.

    It's apparent that Ubisoft has been listening to the criticism that's been levied at them over the years about the Assassin's Creed series. This is the closest we've gotten to the one-two punch that was Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood, with a much leaner story and mission structure than before. However, the game lacks a certain uniqueness beyond being just another Assassin's Creed game, which is a shame considering this could have been so much more.

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 isn't really all that new anymore. What you get is basically the same game as the first one for the Nintendo DS, but with less engaging levels, fewer surprises in terms of power-ups and gameplay, and a boring gimmick set on capturing your inner kleptomaniac.

    Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is probably the weakest in the series, yet it’s not a bad game. It gives you just about what you’d expect, but not so much more than that. The dynamic sailing experience is one of the highlights, and the naval battles with the subsequent boarding of enemy ships will stick to your mind.

    Medal of Honor represents a decent comeback for the series, with the somewhat special backdrop of an ongoing conflict. The story is thin and we've seen most of the gameplay in similar titles before. In other words, nothing new or groungbreaking from EA Games.

    An atmospheric action-adventure set in a post apocalyptic wonderland. Fragile Drams is both sweet and scary, but is unfortunately hampered by a uneven script and some tedious gameplay segments.

    Piranha Bytes takes the Risen series into a new direction with the Pirate-themed sequel Dark Waters. The game is more streamlined than its predecessors, but despite some efforts to modernize the combat and the character development system feels hopelessly outdated. In such it fails to fulfil its own potential.

    Rainbow Moon has simple gameplay, and a charming and colorful look. Both the look and soundtrack is very retro, and seems to be a tribute to old classics. Is you're a fan of strategic RPGs, you'll find a lot to love here. I, on the other hand, found it more of a chore.

    Hydroventure: Spin Cycle is a fresh puzzle game, whose many uses of water never ceases to entertain, despite some bad turns from time to time. The game has a steady progression and clever puzzles which keep your mind constantly occupied, while not being overly complex, thus making for an overall rewarding experience.

    Deadlight is an amazingly beautiful game. The combination of a simplistic foreground and incredibly detailed backgrounds is breathtaking. However, the gameplay isn't as elaborate. It relies heavily on trial and error, especially in the second half of the game. This made the game both frustrating and boring.

    Battleship Gothic: Armada delivers a beautiful depiction of space warfare in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, but a lackluster campaign, a weird AI, and too much focus on micromanagement in an already chaotic environment ruins this potentially exciting title.

    Daedalic's novel adaptation delivers a great story, beautiful visuals and interesting characters. 12th century England makes for a fascinating setting, but unfortunately far too much time is wasted on backtracking and tedious puzzles.
