    The concept is still the same, gather your friends for a friendly battle of speed and luck inhilarious mini games. However, new mini games and creative, lively worlds aside, Mario Party 9 is pretty much exactly the same as before. Some may love this, others can't help but feel a bit disappointed at the lack of innovation from Nintendo.

    When Vikings Attack is a fun and charming little game, with simple core mechanics. Britain is overrun by vikings, and the townspeople need to throw everything they can find at their aggressors to fend them off. Its good for casual gaming, but works best as a fun gaming experience with family and friends.

    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.

    It's more of an expansion than a proper sequel, and the puzzles are not as logical and enjoyable as the ones in the original game. But it still offers a genuinely funny and pleasant overall experience.

    Expectations are always high when one of Nintendo’s mascots is featured in a new game. Unfortunately Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush fails to live up to the expectations, due to some tortuous control mechanics. The graphics are colorful and cute, but gets overshadowed by the mechanics that doesn’t seem to be properly thought through.

    The second episode of this point & click adventure series is just as enjoyable as the first one, with challenging puzzles and lots of funny jokes. Though after two very similar episodes, I hope the third one will shake things up a bit.

    The Blackwell Deception presents a solid and satisfying mystery to solve, enjoyable and logical puzzles and loads of well-written, believable characters. The result is one of the best adventure games of recent years.

    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.

    Grand Slam Tennis 2 is EA Sports' attempt to dominate yet another sports genre, but the title faces hard rivalry in the existing Virtua Tennis and Top Spin series. The game features a nice selection of official stadiums and competitions, but does not really present anything new of interest that has not already been done by the competition. Still, the implementation of Move functionality is promising, and together with a solid online service it should lead to some interest from fans of the genre.

    This is a very enjoyable shooter with lots of action, amazing graphics and a wonderfully authentic cyberpunk-atmosphere, but it's somewhat let down by an erratic difficulty and a relatively short campaign.

    Team 17's bloodthirsty invertebrate are once again on the warpath, but 3D graphics on a 2D plane, new squad mechanics and water physics do little to make this feel like a true step forward. More like a step to the side.

    It's lovely and beautiful, and the attention to detail is wonderul. Sadly the game is wrecked by the terrible camera that will ruin some of it's finest moments.

    Banished is both challenging and addictive, and allows you to create your own unique medieval society.

    If you're desperate for more inFamous content and can play Second Son with your eyes closed then First Light might be worth your time and money. The story being told, while familiar and unremarkable, is well told and playing around with Fetch's powers can be fun at times. Unfortunately, it's still a downscaled, smaller version of what we all did in the first game.

    Finally a portable football game that stands on it's own to feet. The 3D effect is excellent, and this game gives you hours of footballing fun on the 3DS.

    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.

    Final Fantasy Type-0 HD features an engaging combat system and a great universe to explore, making for a stellar JRPG, with it a distinctive style and tone. However, the experience is hampered by too many protagonists, a clunky camera and the fact that the HD-remastering is less than optimal in oh so many different ways.

    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.
