    It stats a bit slow, but once Nathan has learned all his special attacks, the fights turn out to be quite a show – despite their occasionally high difficulty. Once you manage a jump combination without touching the floor once, you'll feel euphoric.

    The Sims Medieval is a funny game for explorers, full of little gems, but the everyday life of the Sims has been simplified and feels routine very quickly. It's very entertaining for a while, but too shallow to motivate for long.

    Long live trash! Raven Software proves that even absurd stories can be entertaining, as long as there's a decent game to back it up. But there was a lot more potential.

    It looks like Ubisoft can't leave the prince alone. This game looks a bit rushed and it's the weakest of the series. Nonetheless it's a good game and more demanding than the last one.

    Krater makes me sad... It has a lot of potential.

    It takes two or three hours until the game really takes off, but then the thrilling story with lots of objectives unfolds with nightmarish drama. The inventory system is one of the dumbest every created, but if you like thrilling adventures you should give it a go.

    This sequel ignores the less popular Broken Sword 3 and 4. One the one hand that's great, because it revives the atmosphere of the first two games and it works. But technically it's not up to date and the important puzzles are too easy to solve. But there's hope for part 2.

    The online RPG The Chronicles of Spellborn suffers from a lack of players, so there is hardly any PvP and some tasks are almost impossible to be done alone. There are still too many bugs to attract more players, but once they are fixed, the game could be a nice alternative to the main players of the genre.

    The experience points system and the succession unlockable diagnostic tools are a step in the right direction.

    It's amazing for a project created by three siblings from Spain and one artist. But it's a bit short and the cliffhanger at the end keeps you asking for more.

    Even as an adult it's possible to get lost in a seemingly childish world and have fun with the deep stories, weird characters and world. It's worth a try despite its problems.

    I would recommend Ground Zeroes without hesitation were it not for the extremely short playing time.

    The huge world of FUEL is fascinating, but not much more than just a backdrop. There should be better reasons to drive around for 30 minutes than just unlocking a new paint job for your car.

    Do you remember the original hunter in World of Warcraft? Where you could look for and then tame wild beats? I miss that and that's why I like Dragon's Prophet with its Pokémon-like hunt for exotic creatures.

    The right game for beginners: uncomplicated and remarkably entertaining tennis. Just press start, lean back and have fun.

    Under the catastrophic porting shell is a great role-playing game core.

    Did you spend countless hours with tower defense games? Anomaly: Warzone Earth turns the tables and offers tower offense. Presentation, controls and mission design are well done, so it's well worth the money.

    Lots of weapnon, fast action, huge explosions and impressive sounds, but no automatic healing or taking cover. Hard Reset was supposed to be old school and it is. It could have been more than just a five-hour-game, though.

    The game can be quite challenging, especially in the round-bases game mode, but after one week you've seen all the game has to offer. Nonetheless it's the perfect game for small tournaments from time to time and to give elves a good thrashing.

    It doesn't really manage to combine brains and entertainment. That's a pity because it could be a great game.

    If you prefer creating things instead of destroying them, please forgo Mercenaries 2: World in Flames. Playing a mercenary in Venezuela you blow up multi-story buildings, restaurants, hotels, factories, cars and boats in several missions. The controls could have been better, but it's still fun, and instead of complaining about the shortfalls of the game you could always just go and blow up something else.

    Vessel annoyed me at first with the more sub-optimal control, but the more I've played, the more fun but I had it.

    If you like pure action, just add another 10 to 15 points because of the atmosphere. Everybody else should prepare for a extremely linear action game, but it's still a lot of fun.

    America's Army 3 can be really good if you have a good connection to the server and if you can find other motivated and cooperative players. But it can take hours until you are able to find that combination. The US army should fix the problems if they want to make a good impression.

    A very dynamic game. The fights are challenging, the puzzles and skill tests are entertaining. Sure, most of the gameplay elements have been taken from other games, but that doesn't hurt. If you are looking for a good action game, you'll have fun for sure. We just missed a combo counter.

    The fusion of real-time strategy with tower defense rules works surprisingly well.

    Surprisingly good compared to Sniper Elite 2 and great fun for sniper fans.
