    With Singularity, developer Raven Software combines solid FPS gameplay with an engrossing storyline revolving around time manipulation. The single player campaign's strong narrative and exciting firefights make Singularity a thrilling experience worthy of a place in your collection.

    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.

    Although R.U.S.E. is clearly put together by quite standard RTS norms, it stands out as a strategy game with refreshing tactical elements. The singleplayer campaign, graphics and sound are a bit sloppy, but a well-built game mechanics and fun multiplayer makes it well worth playing for strategy enthusiasts as well as newcomers to the genre.

    Mixes Dance Dance Revolution, a ressurected Napoleon Bonaparte and parisian tourist information in a way that sounds absurd, but actually works very well. The game is visually beautiful, and the varied rhythm-based minigames utilizes everything the 3DS has to offer. However, you will have a hard time beating this game if you can't keep a beat.

    Shadowrun Returns suffers from a few design flaws and a rather short main campaign, but it’s still an entertaining RPG. The strategic combat is interesting, but too easy even on hard difficulty. The RPG system is rather shallow, and none of the games important decisions are yours to make, even though the story is solid enough. This’ll be a nostalgic trip for older gamers and a good introduction to an old fashioned RPG for the younger ones. Sadly Harebrained rely too much on the community for new content.

    Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is a fun game all the way, through awesome acrobatics and fantastic boss fights. It's a shame the rest of the game is so focused on endlessly fighting the same enemies over and over again.

    FIFA Street is a complete reboot of the series. Unlike its predecessors it offers a more realistic approach to street football. Still, it's all about having fun while performing acrobatic tricks. Even though the game tends to be extremely frustrating playing with egocentric teammates in netplay, it's quite fun when controlling the team completely by yourself. All in all the nice career mode and plenty of variety make this a solid step forward.

    NHL Slapshot is a very different game from NHL 11, but it still manages to convey the fun of playing hockey. The bundeled stick doesn't offer a perfectly precise controll on the ice. Still, it feels unique to blast the puck in the back of the net with your own hands.

    If you strip the game's uninspired visuals and interface and manage to come past its bugs and glitches, Red Orchestra 2 takes no prisoners with its realistic mechanics and physics. It is a game for a hardcore PC audience who thrive on this type of games with its relatively slow-paced tempo yet high intensity.

    This is without a doubt one of the best licensed games ever. It is impressively faithful to the show, and you'll be amazed by the beautiful graphics and the awesome battles.

    Shootmania Storm is pure adrenaline and competition, mixed together with simple, yet intuitive shooting mechanics, making for one of the most entertaining first person shooters in a long time, despite certain rudimentary flaws.

    The third game in the Batman trilogy is both a prequel and a sequel, but rarely feels like either. Even though Origins is set five years before Arkham Asylum, the game features an experienced, skilled crime fighter and a Gotham that’s as infested with lawlessness as Arkham City. Origins also leans too much on old, familiar mechanics to really excel as a full blooded sequel, but luckily those mechanics still manage to squeeze out some fun.

    Yet another good episode. Telltale are consistently delivering great entertainment, and this season of Sam & Max is shaping up to be the best yet.

    Who would have thought a game could make you believe you were taking part in an actual sport? Sports Champions does, and even with some quirks here and there, it's brilliant fun.

    Dragon's Dogma is a marvelous game that fills you with the joy of exploring and unknown world filled with danger and adventure. It pulls you in and forces you to stay.

    Paper Mario: Sticker Star's pop-up book, papercraft visuals retain the series' classic charm and allows the developers to play around with the construction and development of their game world. While using stickers in combat and puzzle solving is a neat idea, players will usually end up hoarding their stickers for fear of needing them later on. This makes overall gameplay feel a bit slow and uninspired, but Sticker Star is a fun game to play regardless.

    With it's seventh main game, the Kingdom Hearts-franchise switches things up quite a bit, making room for some exciting new elements, like the flow motion and the including of characters from The World Ends With You. At the same time it manages to keep things like they have been for the past six games, with plenty of beautiful Disney-worlds, great characters and a good mix of action and roleplaying.

    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.

    As an HD edition of a 3DS game, Revelations is the best Resident Evil game since Resident Evil 4. But clumsy controls, bad voice overs, a brain dead plot and some technical flaws still proves Capcom has a way to go bringing the franchise back to its former glory. Being a hybrid between a horror game and an action game, it’s hard to see what the developers wanted to achieve. But even with all this, it’s still better than Resident Evil 6.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This highly polished new version of Magic The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers, is a treat to play. It does not offer great depth or much freedom, but gives you a good and balanced taste of what a great game Magic can truly be.

    Ridge Racer 3D does not bring anything new to the genre, except 3D. It does, however, follow a well-tested recipe; and it succeeds in doing so. All in all, this is a good racing game, and the added three-dimensional effect literally brings a new dimension to handheld racing.

    With a renewed focus on high speed racing and crazy car destruction, DiRT: Showdown is a fun and exciting new direction for the DiRT series. With less emphasis on realism, the game comes with a lowered level of entry allowing new players in, but also welcomes more experienced players with some decent challenges on the higher difficulties. Cumbersome menus and a lack of variety does hamper the experience somewhat.

    Both long-time fans and new Sly Cooper players are probably going to like this game. It seems like Sanzaru Games didn’t dare to make too significant of differences from the earlier games. Some of the mini games get repetitive and annoying after a while, but if you just work your way through them you’ll enjoy this game.

    El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron could have been a well executed mix of action and platforming, with a unique and artistic look. The combat system is interesting at first, but turns out to be too monotone and simple. With better combat mechanics and a more interesting story, it would have more to offer than simply good looks.

    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.
