    NHL 17 might just be the best hockey game there ever was, but returning annoyances and few real changes make for a game that isn't much better than its predecessor.

    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.

    Dawn of War III is exciting and brings a thrilling multiplayer experience to the table, but a lack of variety and a focus on grinding takes away from its attempt to be a deep, but fast-paced experience at the same time.

    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.

    The most open ended series on the planet returns. You are free to carve your own path, make allies and disrupt or keep the peace. It can be confusing and slow at times, but leaving your story is great fun.

    Gemini Rue is yet more proof that you don't need expensive budgets to make good games. This retro-styled adventure delivers a great story and fun point & click-based gameplay. It's probably not for everyone, but adventure fans will find plenty to like here.

    Awakening is a great expansion. It delivers around 20 hours of role-playing goodness, which flows better and is more varied than what we got in the original game. We also get new and interesting characters and a bunch of new abilities and items to play with.

    Despite sharing a whole lot of similarities with its predecessor, Destiny 2 excels where it counts. The shooting and loot hunting is as addictive as ever, and even though the characters and story feel like they're still lacking several layers of dept, the grind has never felt so good.

    PES 2012 does nothing revolutionary to the series, but the new Off the Ball control and slightly improved gameplay raises the overall experience. Still behind it's EA Sports competition, who offers a more fine tuned approach to the sport, Konami at least takes one solid step forward this season.

    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.

    The Definitive Edition of Sleeping Dogs is first and foremost for new gamers who haven't played the fun original. The extra missions are decent, but more of the same and the graphical improvements, while fine, aren't stunning.

    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.

    Dead to Rights: Retribution is fun, fast and exhilarating. You go from shooting to cracking jaws with your fists in mere seconds, and the mechanics for doing so are rock solid. It slows down at times, but this is still a worthwhile ride.

    Velocity 2X might look and feel a bit simple, but beneath that lies a rather entertaining hybrid of a shoot-em-up and a 2D platformer. It works best in small doses rather than long play sessions, but manages to score a lot of points on charm, aesthetic and tight game design.

    Not much has changed since the first game in 2006. Fortunately, the foundation is still very solid, with an entertaining and beautifully brutal combat system, a great sense of freedom between the missions and satisfying role-playing elements.

    Styx: Master of Shadows is a fun and challenging game that gives you great freedom to explore its vast levels. Some problems with the controls persist, but they won't ruin an overall worthwhile experience.

    There hasn't been a lot of tweaks to the overall LEGO game formula, but The LEGO Movie Videogame manages to feel fresh and exciting to play. Levels are shorter, there are less collectibles, and the experience feels much more focused than in previous games. It is a great argument for the less is more approach to game design.

    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.

    Madden NFL 12 is a two-edged sword. On one hand it offers new players, post-trade rosters and some new features. On the other hand it is essentially very similar to the Madden games released over the last years, but if you are a fan, you will probably not be disappointed.

    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.

    The Wonderful 101 is a good game, marred by insisting on repeating both enemies, inside jokes and half-baked variations. The combat system works excellent, and is enough to make sure the game thrives.

    Guardians of Middle-earth is the first game to bring the immensely popular MOBA -genre to consoles. Thankfully it does it well. Small, but clever changes makes controlling heroes easy, and the fights are both engaging and fun.

    A charming retro styled point-and-click adventure set on a remote farm in the fjords of Norway. The beautiful environments and the nostalgic graphics outweigh the few cliches and strange puzzles. The simple one-button interface in «Milkmaid of the Milky Way» makes it accessible for a modern audience.

    Storywise Gravity Rush 2 tries to do too much. It tells three completely separate stories, one of which is totally unnecessary and another that stretches on for far too long. That said, the iterations in gameplay mechanics are a welcome addition, and the colorful new environments are a sheer joy to explore, especially with the new photo mode that lets you share discoveries with other players.

    Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask does not upend the series' tried and true formula. It's still a delightful puzzle game embalmed in an engaging adventure, filled with eccentric characters in an exciting world. But it would be lovely to see something new added to the core.

    Batman - The Telltale Series is a good game with one of the best Batman stories in a good while. Telltale takes huge risks with the Batman universe, and thus makes the game an engaging and exciting experience.

    Total War: Warhammer 2 is more spectacular than its predecessor, but fails to innovate when it comes to depth and strategy. The Vortex mechanic is wonderful and the factions diverse, but with the game's extreme dedication to fantasy, it might be a tough sell for the traditional fans of the series.

    While Tyranny doesn't revolutionize the isometric role playing genre, its story, characters and progression system certainly demands attention, and makes for a fun, dark and interesting game.

    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.
