    Donkey Kong is back and looking better than ever. This platformer doesn't hold your hand, and offers brutal challenges along the way. Overcoming the obstacles offers a great feeling of accomplishment, and will leave you wanting more.

    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.

    Despite some minor technical hiccups, this game is a hilarious celebration of childish imagination and toilet jokes. Fans of the series will enjoy this immensely.

    inFamous: Second Son is a lot of fun, with a lot of pretty particles and a few smashing super powers, but the somewhat lackluster story and weird karma-interactions hold it back from being truly great.

    All in all, this is a wonderful little game, and everyone who likes strategy and tactics should give it a try.

    Addictive, beautiful and often challenging. This is Age of Wonders as we know and love.

    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.

    A solid and emotional end to the series, and a game every adventure gamer should play. But not without having played the previous Blackwell games.

    While not the underdog classic some gamers may have hoped for, Child of Light is an enjoyable platform adventure with a surprisingly complex turn-based battle system. It also doesn't hurt that the game is absolutely gorgeous to look at.

    I wont be suprised if this game boosts the Wii U sales. Mario Kart 8 is as much fun as Mario Kart games have always been, but never before has the world seen a more beautiful game in the Mario series. The innovation that lets players drive upside down doesn't really influence the experience, but this game is sure to provide hours of joy.

    Mario Golf: World Tour simulates many of the elements a golf player in the real world must consider before taking a shot. Wind, weather and terrain affects the ball in realistic ways and makes every shot different from each other. Mixed with incredible graphics, this game will surely please both non-golfers and golf pros.

    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.

    Did I just spend 25 hours transporting lumber and getting stuck in the mud? I certainly did, and I don't regret any of it.

    Do you want to ru(i)n an island? As supreme ruler on Tropico you can suppress your population, or see your country prosper. Every inhabitant is doing a job, thus it is far more practical if they work for you rather than against you. This small micro perspective combined with the macro management of foreign powers makes Tropico unique. Annoying features of past games in the series are gone. This should be a great game for old as well as new aspiring dictators.

    The Sly Trilogy is as great as you remember it on the PlayStation Vita. The graphics are vibrant, the story engaging and the characters charming and fun.

    The Wolf Among Us tells an engaging tale, filled with great characters, colorful graphics and clever choices. If only the choices held more meaning.

    Humoristic, self-aware and very polished MMO from Carbine. Fast-paced combat feels great, and the content gets harder and harder as the game goes along. End-game content can be a bit too hard to get access to, and the grind a bit too long.

    CounterSpy is stealthy, charming and clever, not only in its graphical style, but also in the way it handles the somewhat clichéd cold war spy drama gig.

    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?

    Forza Horizon 2 is a great racing game, and with its sprawling open world, a huge variety of cars and a clever mix of arcade and simulation, it might be one of the best in quite some time.

    Wasteland 2 brings back the magic and mystery of the isometric CRPG-genre. In spite of a few bugs, the game delivers a rich and compelling world to explore, solid combat mechanics, and great entertainment from start to finish.

    Defense Grid 2 takes everything we know from the first game, adds clever new ways to both build upon, and improves your strategies. On top of this we find a sometimes hilarious story told by a bunch of misfit AI's.

    As gamers we are taught that games should fit different formulas, game characters should be certain types, and stories should be told in certain ways. D4 refuses to accept the established methods and creates it's own rules like a drunk man on a focused mission. Sometimes it's good to let go of all inhibitions and join the drunk guy in his binge.

    A gorgeous, smart and addictive game that is somewhat let down by weak AI. If Amplitude sticks with it post release, it could easily become the new king of the genre.

    The Vanishing is a supernatural murder mystery with a dark and sombre, if not entirely original, story beneath its hood. Although gameplay is a tad repetitive, it is wonderfully evident that the game has been crafted with elaborate care and conscience. But more than anything, The Vanishing is a strikingly beautiful stroll through a hauntingly gorgeous valley.

    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.

    Sunset Overdrive is a great game, and with unrivaled freedom of movement, extremely fun dialogue and chaotic combat, it’s never boring. It might, on the other hand, be a bit too crazy, and the mix of traversal and shooting never quite matches up.

    Alpha Protocol is an ambitious and entertaining action-based role-playing game, but suffers from several irritating flaws. It offers much freedom and an exciting story, but it's fresh setting of international intrigue only rarely touches on reality and is for the most part unoriginal.

    A fun romp through space and various science-fiction cliches. There is also plenty of customization and stats for number-crunching RPG fans. Some archaic design decisions may test your patience though.
