    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.

    The Banner Saga is one of the most engrossing games I've played in a long time. It drives you forward and is incredibly hard to put down. It's the kind of game that throws you a really unpleasant curveball when you least expect it, and I love it.

    Tanner is back! This reboot is surprisingly fresh and innovative thanks to the shift-function, but what ultimately makes it a great game is the superb handling, which is pretty much perfect for a game of this type.

    If this can even be called a game, it's a highly unusual one. Instead of doing missions and killing enemies you construct landscapes and battle for control over the always unpredictable elements brought to life by impressive physics.

    The Darkness II is, above all, a fun experience. With an engaging story, fun gameplay mechanics and its original art-style it stands out from your everyday FPS. Despite it's far too short length, the experience itself is so unique and compelling you're likely to play through the single-player campaign over and over again, having a blast every time.

    Old school dogfighting that's best in short bursts. Luftrausers boasts easy controls and retro visuals, but lacks the range and depth to keep you up in the air for a long period of time.

    The Sly Trilogy is as great as you remember it on the PlayStation Vita. The graphics are vibrant, the story engaging and the characters charming and fun.

    Skate 3 may not be more than an evolution of the two first games, but it is a damned good evolution. Port Carverton is a skaters paradise, and the introduction of difficulty levels invites both new and veteran gamers to enjoy the fictional city on four wheels.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters is fresh in several ways. The caddy offers deeper gameplay, while the road to the US Masters is an interessting career mode. All in all a great golf game, with your cast as the star of the show.

    Admittedly, Puppeteer does resemble a somewhat traditional platformer at its core. However, the generic mechanics are nevertheless well executed, and coupled with wildly imaginative visuals and an enveloping atmosphere this is an undeniably memorable game that never runs out of surprises.

    The Walking Dead - 400 Days delivers action, story and horror in perfect-sized bites. Even though it lacks the strong leading characters like Clementine and Lee, it still packs a good amount of fun gameplay. Too bad it’s over way too quickly, but 400 Days does make the perfect bride between The Walking Dead Season One and Two and is strong entry to the series.

    Red Steel 2 is a drastic improvement over the first game. The controls are tight, and they rarely cause any problems. At times the game still doesn't quite catch what you're doing, but this is the exception rather than the rule.

    Nimbus is a delightful mix of racing for the perfect time and brain-twisting puzzles. This is a excellent game for those who love the feeling of becoming really good at something that is challenging, but never unfair.

    The collisions in NHL 14 are huge. Combined with realistic movements is this a game hockey fans would love. The fights are now integrated in a better way, to make everything look more like an actual TV production. The game flows really well, and the steps towards realism are a great plus.

    Great fun. That is if fun is the same as a dark story, horrible imagery, tricky murder riddles and dying teenagers. Great times at Hope's Peak Academy.
