    Advanced Warfare somewhat breaks the infamous Call of Duty mold, mostly by delivering a surprisingly coherent story, some great new ideas, as well as an overly frustrating multiplayer.

    This is a unique and atmospheric experience. I highly recommend it, but be aware that you need to give it your full attention to get the most out of the game.

    As a Wii U launch title, Black Ops II strives to innovate upon the well-known Call of Duty-formula, and to some extent it also manages to do so. While it still is very much the same game previously released on Sony's and Microsoft's consoles, it is the ability to play the game single-handed through the game pad that should be Nintendo's selling point.

    At its best, Shift 2 is one of the most intense and rewarding racing games around. There's some flaws (like the entire drifting part), but the overall package is really solid and fun.

    Ilomilo is charming, no doubt. But it's also a well balanced puzzle platformer with elements that captures and entertains throughout.

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker continues the successful recipe from the mini-games in Super Mario 3D World. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is something different and deserves praise. It’s packed with content and challenges and will keep you entertained for hours. Nintendo has been creative with the usage of camera angles, but I’d wish they’d have more illusions like in Super Mario 3D Land.

    An already great game returns as one of the best space strategy games ever made.

    The newest rendition of Mario and Luigi's role-playing adventures is a good one, filled to the brim with fun mechanics, great characters and dreamy role-playing madness to boot.

    Even in their thirteenth outing in the Lego world, Traveller's Tales have managed to craft a humerous and charming platformer with enough in-jokes and references to satisfy the most discerning comic book fan. Unfortunately the experience is ruined by a severe lack of challenge, idiotic AI and slipshod platforming.

    The Penal Zone is a very enjoyable adventure game with fresh and interesting puzzles, great humour and good presentation. The lack of a good point & click interface lets it down somewhat, but it's still well worth buying.

    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.

    A wonderful Tower Defense concept in a disappointing package. There's a lot of strategic potential here, but the levels often end when you are getting the grip on things.

    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.

    Just Cause 2 delivers a huge amount of vehicles, tons of enemy bases and installations to liberate and gameplay so extreme that you'll end up giggling in front of the screen.

    Rage is a beautiful game set in a vivid and believable world. The old-school id-polish is present, and the weapons and items at your disposal make for a solid shooter. Sadly, the experience is somewhat thwarted by a severely crippled story arc, repetitive gameplay, and a lack of innovation and lasting multiplayer.

    The Jak and Daxter Trilogy sees the strange duo returning to consoles, this time in glorious HD, but the package as a whole is surprisingly unbalanced. The Precursor Legacy is a great experience, with top-notch level design and pure platforming fun, but the second installment falters in nearly every aspect being little more than an annoying time consumer. The third game addresses many of its predecessor's flaws and brings back some of the series' unique and magic charm, making this HD collection a safe buy for anyone looking for two greatly fun games.

    Gran Turismo 6 is a massive game, and it is fantastic in its best moments, but the shortcomings of the series are getting difficult to ignore. Most notably the awful sounds and the lack of a proper damage model.

    The solid mechanics of the Civilization series are not enough to lift this game up to its potential. It fails to differentiate itself from Civ V and is lacking in inspiration and soul. A missed opportunity to create something great.

    Hatsune Miku’s first western video game is a fun one, with some great bits of music and a charming visual style. The experience is however muddled by messy menus and stupid mini-games.

    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.

    TrackMania is back, and just as fun as ever. The new environment will no doubt be a hit among both new and old players, though it does feel a bit disappointing to go from seven environments in TrackMania United Forever to just one (so far) in TrackMania 2.

    An enjoyable season finale for Sam and Max, though it feels a bit too random and isn't quite up there with the rest of the season.

    Puzzle Quest 2 draws inspiration from its roots and offers sleek and enjoyable gameplay. Do quests, gather treasures, fight monsters and solve puzzles in this very entertaining game. The story and roleplaying elements have been toned down, but the result is still a great puzzle game.

    Gods & Kings focuses on improving the already great experience that is to be found in the main mode of Civilization V. By adding a number of new civilizations and reinstating the concept of religion, Firaxis has made the game more diverse, especially for players who prefer not to take a militaristic approach.

    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.

    While the addition of Marvel's super hero canon is great, there has been done very little to improve the bog standard formula of the LEGO series so far. You still smash and build your way through various colourful levels, and it's a game flow that's starting to show its age. Once you remove all the fan-service you're left with nothing but an average game that relies too much on gaming OCD to be worth it.

    Game Freak delivers yet another solid game. It doesn't bring a lot of new stuff to the table, but the small changes and refinements are for the better. It might be time to change things up a bit though.

    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?

    Building on the foundation of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Revelations had a fantastic opportunity. Sadly it is wasted on annoying mini games and uninspired escort missions.

    GRID 2 is an action-packed and intense experience, where the cars behave like in a Hollywood movie. It is an entertaining arcade racer, but there are a few flaws. The AI is weak, the number of tracks should be higher and the game is too simplified in a few areas.
