    Unstoppable Gorg provides a new and exciting take on tower defense. It's a much more "active" game than most tower defense games, because you constantly have to work to keep the turrets in optimal positions, and it can be really really tough at times too. But it is highly addictive, and the presentation is lovely.

    War of the Roses is a highly enjoyable multiplayer experience set in medieval England. It offers a challenging combat system, deep class customization and an authentic feel, but can at times be unpolished in terms of gameplay.

    Ridge Racer Unbounded is a good racing experience, being fast-paced, slick-looking and explosive. At the same time we have learned to expect «bigger and better» from each new racing title over the years, and it's here Unbounded fails dramatically, only rehashing ideas from older, and ultimately better racing games.

    Despite being neither revolutionary nor completely true to the original Castlevania concept, Mirror of Fate is enormously entertaining in its own right. It is a delightful mixture of action, platforming and exploration featuring a satisfying combat system that works extremely well in 2D.

    At it's best, Serious Sam 3 is almost like a first person shooter-version of Geometry Wars: An intense dance with the enemy hordes. But it takes a while to get to this point, and towards the end the whole experience gets a bit samey.

    It's an engaging and unique game with lots of depth and replayability, but sometimes you feel like more of a spectator than a player.

    A very pleasant adventure with an unique style and plenty of fun moments. If you're looking for a good way to pass an evening you can do a lot worse than spending it with The Journey Down.

    Driving in Cars 2 feels fantastic, and the somewhat original mechanics offer an experience you'll not find elsewhere. It's definitely more engaging in multiplayer however, and I'd recommend you play it with at least one other person.

    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.

    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.

    The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is surprisingly entertaining, and it deserves to be played by those looking for a good adventure. It’s visually beautiful and well written. NeoCore Games has been able to create an amazing atmosphere worthy of a monster hunter game. On the other hand, the game doesn’t provide us with anything new or breathtaking, but it does offer waves and waves of enemies, a lot of loot to find and huge maps to explore.

    A game that tries present itself as a serious "eco thriller" but fails completely due to stupid, illogical puzzles, moronic characters and poor dialogues. Fans of puzzle-heavy Euro-adventures might find something to enjoy here, but most gamers should steer clear.

    Mousecraft is the lovechild of Tetris and Lemmings, although it's nowhere near as addicting. It's a creative idea, with fun mechanics, and well worth a try, but the difficulty goes up and down too rapidly, because the game introduces new mechanics a bit too often.

    Gotham City Impostors is a fun and different first-person shooter with a lot of ambition. It stands out from the crowd, and has enjoyable and casual gameplay. There are some issues with matchmaking that made the experience a bit tedious, but I'm sure these will be sorted out soon.

    LEGO: The Hobbit is a fun game with a huge, sprawling world, but in the end it's a bittersweet experience, mostly because of the story that's missing.

    Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is a pretty good game, with a well written story, good voice acting, an atmospheric musical score, suitably varied and eerie environments, and quite a few stomach churning and downright creepy moments. It never gets boring or frustrating, and there are no passages in particular that qualify as less than enjoyable. Unfortunately, though, it’s just not that scary. And that’s quite the let down for a horror game.

    Final Fantasy Tactics is one of the deepest, most engrossing strategy RPGs of all time, but the iPhone is far and away the worst device to experience it on. The sluggish performance and blurry visuals of Square's iOS port make the steep price tag very hard to swallow.

    Gray Matter presents an exciting, intriguing and well researched mystery, which coupled with memorable characters and enjoyable puzzles makes this game a "must have" for every point & click adventure game fan out there.

    Cities in Motion 2 is deep and full of possibilities, and really addictive once you get going. But the user interface can be a struggle to work with at times.

    In this year's Pro Cycling Manager, the graphics engine has gotten a complete overhaul, giving us both very beautiful and realistic environments. The core gameplay stays the same, as you lead your team through exciting cycling triumphs. Though mostly a game for cycling fans, PCM Season 2010 can offer many hours of entertainment.

    While The Cave doesn't succeed as a pure platformer, it certainly makes up for that with charm and humor The character specific areas are great and somewhat manages to undermine the fact that the main tasks have to be repeated three times for you to see everything the game has to offer.

    Tales of Xillia 2 feels like not much more than a repeat of the previous game. You'll spend most of your time walking through familiar environments you already explored thoroughly in the previous game.

    A warm and wonderful game that will make you smile and laugh in company with it's charming characters. You don't want to miss this magical and challenging journey.

    Although Red Faction: Armageddon offers one of the coolest weapons of the year, a good weapon mechanic and destructible environments, the game falls flat with an uninspiring single-player campaign and a short-lived multiplayer segment.

    Citizen Brown is like a mediocre sitcom. There's loads of talk and not much else. The puzzles are dull and simple, the scope is extremely limited and the situations are silly at best. But at least it'll make you laugh from time to time.

    While the overall setting and characters are both delightfully stupid and unironically bizarre, there's little else in the game's narrative that's much to write home about. The story itself is rather bland and melodramatic, and the single player campaign is frought with repetitive missions and fights. The multiplayer doesn't fare better, with interchangeable characters and game modes that leave something to be desired.

    Grand Strategy simplified, but still grand. March of the Eagles gives the players clear victory conditions, a shorter time range and simplified economics and politics. This makes the game more focused, and easier to learn. Multiplayer against a group of friends is a blast.

    It feels like a pale copy of Rocksteadys Batman: Arkham Asylum, lacking in charm and unique features. The game is also plagued by both small and big technical issues that drop it down to a disappointing level of mediocrity. It's not all bad, but as a package it is uninspired, empty and flat.

    Tomodachi Life tries to be fun, and it sorta is. The problem is that it only lasts for an hour or three, and then the magic’s gone forever.
