    The series is back where it all began and Shogun 2 is both at tribute to the original and a testament to how far the series have come. It's a solid game with excellent gameplay, but prone to becoming a bit monotone after several playthroughs.

    Toki Tori 2 looks like a cute, little puzzle adventure, but hidden underneath those pretty, yellow feathers is a monster of a platform puzzler. It can be frustrating at first, because the game doesn’t give away much information, but once you get used to the logic of the puzzles, that’s when Toki Tori 2 really shines.

    Bringing Grim Fandango back to the land of the dead is a welcoming move. LucasArts' classic 3D adventure is still very entertaining due to the atmospheric music, the charming characters, the intense story and the unique expression. The remastered version improves the 3D models with updated graphics, but sadly this is not true for the cinematic cutscenes and all backgrounds in the game. They are identical to the original version presented in 4:3 aspect ratio and seems rather blurry compared to the 3D models.

    Highly enjoyable episode. It starts off with a great film noir-style sequence, and delivers plenty of varied situations and great laughs. The Freelance Police are in top form.

    As one of the lengthiest, most beautiful adventures available for the Nintendo DS, Ōkamiden deserves a place in the collection of any handheld gaming enthusiast. It's definitely not the most innovative sequel out there, but there are still hours upon hours of exciting single player goodness to be had for anyone looking for another Zelda-esque title to sink their teeth into.

    Exploring the beautifully rendered American east coast during the 16th century is a delight. The woodland nature areas provide a atmosphere and a sense of freedom that's been lacking in the series previous installments. Variation in quests, innovative and well developed systems are the game's strongest parts.

    Although amendments have been made to cater Crysis 2 to a multi-platform audience, it is still a fun game for shooter enthusiasts. It's brilliant use of the nanosuit, high production values and good weapon physics make Crysis 2 a great first person shooter in singleplayer and multiplayer.

    This is a unique and atmospheric experience. I highly recommend it, but be aware that you need to give it your full attention to get the most out of the game.

    In the end the ambitions and message of Watch Dogs overshadow any technical glitches or disappointments. Watch Dogs might not be exactly the game we envisioned after E3 in 2012, instead it's a playful and varied action game in an open 3D world dynamic enough to allow the players to create their own memorable moments. The icing on the cake is how the game manages to tackle current events like surveillance on citizens and our willingness to share personal details with the whole world online in an engaging way that makes the player feel and think.

    Who knew a stroll into Arts and Crafts land could be this much fun? Kirby's latest adventure is a pure joy, and although it's a bit on the easy side, it'll keep you very entertained from start to finish without even flinching.

    HarmoKnight is one of those games that instantly charms you. The creators of Pokémon know their stuff, and among the things they know best is pure creative power, lively music and exciting creatures, all of whom are represented in this short, but sweet musical experience.

    Dragonborn's most impressive achievement is the new and exciting island that offers plenty of new opportunities for adventure and stories to tell. Bethesda clearly focused on their strengths, and the result is their best Skyrim DLC so far.

    Tiny Wings is a charming, compelling and addictive sidescroller about a bird who needs help to fly due to his small wings. By pressing the screen at the right time and thus giving the bird speed, the game gives you a distinct feel of flow very rarely seen in mobile games.

    Super Time Force is charming as all hell, as well as incredibly funny. The shooting is not as precise as you’d want, but the concept is nice, and who can actually say no to a trip through time and space?

    Guitar instructors are facing serious competition from Ubisoft. Rocksmith turns dull repetitions into a fun game, and will turn you into a much better guitarist through steady increases in challenge and difficulty.

    Great fun. That is if fun is the same as a dark story, horrible imagery, tricky murder riddles and dying teenagers. Great times at Hope's Peak Academy.

    This War of Mine is an important game, both as a glance into the life of civilians ruined by war, but also as a great survival game. It's only a shame that the tedious days and repetitive encounters hamper the experience.

    A tense and unnerving experience that wonderfully captures the style and atmosphere of the original film. Alien: Isolation, in spite of its faults, is a welcome and accomplished take on a great franchise long deserving of a grate game.

    Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is both great remakes, filled to the brim with a superb selectipn of Pokémon, beautiful graphics, as well as the interesting, new DexNav, which changes the way you go about catching monsters. It also has lame side activities and a lop-sided multiplayer, but that does little to ruin the experience in any major ways.

    Skate 3 may not be more than an evolution of the two first games, but it is a damned good evolution. Port Carverton is a skaters paradise, and the introduction of difficulty levels invites both new and veteran gamers to enjoy the fictional city on four wheels.

    This mostly hilarious game fuses tactics with intense action and presents a solid challenge for any would-be orc slayer. The constantly growing repertoire of new traps and weapons provides endless amounts of bloody fun.

    Aarklash: Legacy offers superb tactical combat in the style of classics like Baldur's Gate. It's a game with combat and little else, but if you fancy yourself an armchair tactician you owe it to yourself to give it a go.

    Though it could still use some balancing, Warlock II is a highly addictive game that offers a new twist on the classic Civilization-style formula.

    In all it's familiarity the Diabloesque gameplay sucks you in, but it is the beautiful word, the brilliant music, and the genius voice over that keeps you going. Bastion might be a game, but it's much more a fascinating fairy tale told in real time.

    An engaging and addictive game that presents you with lots of challenging dilemmas and strategic choices. There are some bugs, unfortunately, and the UI can feel clunky at times.

    This emotional and powerful story about two brothers and their sacrifice is told in a way that’ll make you take a step back think. Starbreeze tells us multiple stories, all set in a brutal and unfair world, where family is everything that matters. The control system is quite unique and will probably not suite everybody, but they are interesting enough to make even the simplest puzzles exciting.

    Ratchet & Clank: Nexus is a blast to play, with a solid mix of everything that’s defined the series over the last eleven years. It’s only a shame the story doesn’t hold up, being the least memorable of the franchise.
