    Nail'd is a rollercoaster from the second you load the game. Absurd track designs, insane jumps, and crazy speed, combined with a great soundtrack, will keep you busy for hours at a time. Nail'd may not be even remotely realistic, but it sure is fun, despite minor flaws.

    Lightning Returns is a fun game filled with myriad things to do. The combat system is excellent, and the many options with with you can customize Lightning brings are impressive. It's a fitting end to the series and bodes well for the future of Final Fantasy.

    Hegemony: Philip of Macedon is a good strategy game which offers plenty of historical challenges. Play Philip, the father of Alexander, as you try and gather the city states of Greece under your banner. The strategic elements are entertaining and go deep, but tactical combat is underdeveloped and bland.

    With it's over the top package and lighthearted gameplay, this arcade/puzzler succeeds in implementing the Burnout feel we all know and love. Sadly, it's plagued by shallow, repetitive and all to random gameplay that even EA's ingenius Autolog feature fails to make rewarding. Despite all it's promise and potential, this is little but a failed Criterion-funded experiment.

    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.

    While Slender: The Arrival is by no means a perfect game, it excels in inspiring the creeping sensation that danger is lurking around every corner, that something is out to get you. It succeeds in making me afraid to check what’s behind me, but also afraid not to check what’s behind me. That’s the mark of a good horror game.

    Semper Fi is an expansion pack to the well received Hearts of Iron 3. It offers many improvements to the game's systems, such as the AI, the maps and the command structure. It brings great new options, but the expansion is very small and adds no new content.

    Yesterday is a solid point-and-click adventure that harkens back to the games of old. The narrative is painfully short, but the interesting tone, clever puzzles and fantastic atmosphere does make up for it somewhat.

    With some small adjustments Koei presents the most polished and complete game of the Warriors-series. New elements like the Ambition-mode will make both hard core fans and newcomers to the saga have a blast with this addition to the popular hack and slash feast.

    Among the Sleep isn't the horror game many are expecting. It's not Amnesia with a toddler. It's a game with a message, and while it's not always successful I think Krillbite can be reasonably proud of what they've achieved here.

    The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is a decent adventure game with some interesting elements like the "deduction board". It depicts old London in a good way, but sadly it feels a bit rushed and doesn't have any lasting appeal.

    UEFA Euro 2012 is a rather disappointing expansion to FIFA 12. National teams and a few new and rather boring modes is not enough to justify this as good representation of this summers biggest football event.

    The 2013 version is the best the Pro Cycling Manager-series has delivered in years. It still has a lot of room for improvement, but it offers a great cycling simulation and will please fans throug the season. Just stay away from the multiplayer.

    Tekken Hybrid is a combo package of game, demo and film. The revamp of Tekken Tag Tournament HD looks good and feels relevant compared to modern fighters. Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Prologue gives a nice taste of what's to come, but a few more characters to try out would have been better. The film lacks a good story, but looks amazing. This package is an oddity that might confuse newcomers to the games, but will please the fans.

    This is definitely a great mystery, with a variety of puzzles, challenges and laid-back gameplay. I wouldn't hesitate to increase this game's score if some minor problems were rectified.

    Even years later the game still holds up well. It's a pretty, entertaining and at times challenging trip through dark forests and brutal fights. Still, it would have been nice if they had fixed the glaring sound issues.

    Yoshi’s New Island is a cute and colorful game. Unfortunately the game is an almost complete copy of Super Mario Land 2: Yoshi’s Island 2. The gameplay is exactly the same, and the developer, Arzest, have barely come up with any new ideas to the game. It looks like Arzest haven’t truly put their heart and into this project.

    An incredibly detailed and realistic experience in the world of militaristic strategy games is bogged down by an inanely sluggish sense of pacing, laughably stupid AI and a high entry threshold that explains very little.

    Glorious insanity. This is one of the weirdest games you'll ever play. It's by no means perfect, but if you're at all interested in experiencing something truly unique, you owe it to yourself to give it a try.

    This beautiful and bizarre game has a lot of potential, but falters because of a fragmented story. However, a good battle system and varied environments will keep you entertained and intrigued.

    Gods Will Be Watching is a test of patience told in six violent acts. What could have been a fascinating glimpse into a cool sci fi universe is unfortunately sabotaged by mechanics that give the illusion of control but often makes you feel like a helpless bystander. Whether this is by design or by accident, it ends up being a frustrating experience.

    A solid and very enjoyable rally game that will no doubt hook you for a while. But it doesn't do anything we haven't seen before and the tracks suffer from far too much repetition.

    The overall impression is of a thoroughly mediocre arena-shooter that never quite manages to deliver. On a crowded online market Nexuiz is reduced to a short term affair without much longevity. As this is a game that relies solely on an active multiplayer community, it's hard to tell how long Illfonic can manage to keep this going. Unfortunately, Nexuiz is not the game to revive the arena-shooter.

    One Piece: Pirate Warriors partly unsuccessful capturing the heart and soul of the One Piece franchise. The dialogue is funny and the Straw Hat Pirates are well animated, but the gameplay is repetitive, and unless you're a true Dynasty Warriors fan this button mashing title might end up disappointing.

    SimCity is a game you can lose yourself in for hours at a time. It's a game where you can keep digging deeper and deeper in underlying systems and play a plethora of different ways. Mostly though, SimCity is a game where you can allow your creativity and organizational skills to work in tandem, just the way you wish.

    Big orcs and tiny goblins make for unlikely and enjoyable heroes. The juvenile language may dampen the story at times, but the interesting setting and challenging combat make up for it.

    The lack of in tactical options and base building, together with an a unbalanced experience system and bad storytelling makes this game a naked and weak ending to the franchise.

    The single player mode suffers from a lack of variation, but the competitive and team based multiplayer is a fantastic addition to both the Ratchet & Clank universe and the Tower Defense genre as a whole.

    Storm is a creative take on the platform genre, placing nature in the center of the gameplay. It's somewhat fun to play with rain, snow and lightning, but unfortunately the limited freedom and weak puzzles prevent it from becoming really memorable.

    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.
