    Due to some weaknesses in terms of story (extremely disappointing ending) and gameplay (savepoints), Mafia II turned out to be a good game, but not the masterpiece we've hoped for. Most of these problems can be quite easily forgiven though, thanks to its overwhelming atmosphere and charm.

    The gameplay provides easy accessibility and still manages to be tactically challenging. Too bad that the MMO-RTS-concept of BattleForge is countered by the lack of a story.

    Alice - Madness Returns is the kind of game that's retro in both a good sense and a bad: It's a tough game to beat, but lacks innovations and better graphics.

    Everybody who just can’t get enough of Tennis Games, should give this game a shot. Everyone else would be well advised to stick with Virtua Tennis.

    Independent, unfamiliar and unknown: And Yet It Moves is the kind of game you rarely ever get to review – and yet I instantly fell in love with the fresh style, interesting concept and funny gameplay. It may not be a high-budget-production, but it’s certainly worth your while and money!

    Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse Episode 3 is both great fun and sometimes depressingly hard because of the wacky puzzles. However Episode 3 can't quite live up to the brilliant Episode 2.

    The next big thing shows us how an adventure has to look in the year 2011, despite being far too easy for the most time. Only the hieroglyphics-puzzle is really frustrating because it's not logical in the game world.

    The few technical discrepancies within AVS are more than outweighed by the pile of good things there are to say about this game. A Vampyre Story is reminiscent of the glory days of LucasArts and comes equipped with an awesome amount of humour. [Issue#17]

    Only the lack of the Global Conquest mode makes the PC-Version the better option, but Xbox360 Command & Conquer Fans can’t go wrong with this one.

    As a long-standing TDE-Fan I am literally overjoyed to delve once more into the fantastical world of Aventuria – and if it’s this well made, all the better! Though of course there’s the usual parade of odds and ends to criticize, like the missing character customization, but they’re all barely affecting the myriad ways to have fun with this title. To me, TDE:Drakensang is without a doubt the greatest RPG of German origin – Gothic 3, watch out! [Issue#15]

    LEGO Star Wars III lacks new ideas and a well known movie as its base, making this game seem kind of lackluster in comparison to the old LEGO Star Wars games.

    As an adventure gamer i have to criticize the far too easy puzzles and the controls that feel too much like a console game. But as a Back to the Future Fan I have to say: Well done, Telltale, this feels like a worthy extension of the trilogy.

    The complaints from the first episode remain as well as the great Back to the Future-Atmosphere which makes this game worthwile despite its shortcomings as an adventure game.

    All in all it's an arcade-action game with a rather small and rudimentary RTS part best played with a game pad. Best thing to do is to go for the demo before grabbing the title from the store!

    Ambitions is overall a good add-on but lacks some more content to make it really worth the money.

    MoHs singleplayer-experience can't match Infinity Ward's masterpiece, but DICEs Multiplayer part countervails that little shortfall pretty well. Bottom line: No Must-Have, but a good shooter nevertheless.

    Magicka might not be a perfect game concerning technical standards but is a total must have for every geek out there. The game is best played together with up to three friends, which is suported in all of the three gamemodes adventure, survival and versus.

    For Fans, Space Marine certainly is the action-blockbuster they were hoping for. Anybody else could find it a bit shallow and/or disappointing though.

    For Fans of the Ghostbusters movies is Ghostbusters - The Video Game a must have. It is definitely one of the better movie adaptions. Even so the humor is like the movies and shows off in some very good cutscenes you can not deny the fact that it would have been a better movie, than a video game.

    The singleplayer part of Wolfenstein is rather well done, but the multiplayer is alas rather lacking luster.

    Astroslugs unfolds quite not the addictive potential of a Tetris, but it packed a simple game idea into a challenging puzzle game with nice presentation and intuitive controls.

    If you liked the Rome version of the Total War series, you will definitely be disappointed here. My advice is to download and test the demo version and afterwards decide, if you want to hurry to the local store to get the full game or not.

    If you consider yourself "fairly interested" in racing and motorsport, you are probably better of with NFS:SHIFT or Race Driver: GRiD. But if you are a direct-injected, turbo-aspirated pedal-to-the-metal-Petrolhead, this might just be the perfect Racing-Sim for you... that is, if you don't already own GTR Evolution, which offers more content whilst not falling short in any other term.

    Mysteries of Westgate hat many brilliant moments. But is it enough for ten Euros? For Fans of Neverwinter Nights 2, Mysteries of Westgate is a rewarding Investment but for Casual Gamer this expansion pack is not really useful.

    Ceville isn't a masterpiece, but worth a recommendation for genre fans - despite technical flaws and too simple puzzles.

    Frontlines managed to meet my expectations pretty well. Despite the fact, that I was hoping for additional graphical brilliance (especially in terms of the range of vision), the boys and girls at Kaos Studios managed to create a game, that nicely satisfies my personal multiplayer-shooter-likings: New ideas, uncountable (and well balanced) possibilities, cool vehicles, nice maps for up to 64 shooter fans and a single-player mode, that deserves its name.

    There is no doubt that the concept of Line Rider is ingenious, but Freestyle doesn't offer much more fun than the charming original Flash-Game.

    With 29 new multiplayer-maps, two new races and an already a bit aged AI Dawn of War: Soulstorm sadly fails to become, what many RTS-fans were hoping for: A great game. Fans of Warhammer 40.000 and the other Dawn of War-Games shouldn't miss this Stand-Alone-Expansion anyway, because it still packs the same great atmosphere, which made its predecessors famous.

    The developers seem to have learned from their previous mistakes and have implemented some rather extreme but useful changes into Grand Ages: Rome. In technical respects the game may convince, although the user friendliness would still need some improvement. However, for those interested in this kind of game Grand Ages: Rome is a good choice nevertheless.
