    On average, Fright of the Bumble Bees is as good as Telltale's Sam & Max adventures: a lot of humor, great dialogue and a charming style. But experienced adventure players may find the puzzles to easy and the game too short. It's still good value and we're looking forward to the other three parts.

    Buy recommendations rarely fall so easily like this: If you want just more Borderlands, buy the Pre-Sequel.

    Solo gamers won’t have that much fun with Demigod, but if you are into multi-player battles, you are in for a treat. Balance needs to be fixed, though. And it’s a bit too expensive.

    It's not just a really good adventure game, it's got something to tell about the innocence of a child and the human trait to ignore inconvenient truths. It's more than just entertainment, it's art.

    It's a typical FIFA Manager with it's great atmosphere, some bugs and with handful of small, but great improvements.

    This is a real heavy-weight in the genre of horror adventure games. Fans of the gerne will be excited.

    It may not look as nice as Crysis 2, but at least there's a hero to identify with with an interesting story. If you like action without the usual war scenarios, get to Mars.

    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.

    This game tries to tell what happened before Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl, but may require a few more patches to be able to do so. At least version 1.5.03 is full of bugs, crashes, long loading times, broken save games and design errors, which is a shame because that's what stops the game from being great. Theoretically this could all be fixed by patches and just like with Stalker, this may take a while.

    Telltale managed to tell a story that fits into the movies without losing charme or balance. The puzzles might have been a bit too easy but if you like the movies or adventure games, you have to play this series.

    Tropico 5 isn't just the best of the series, but simply one of the best games of its kind. The Settlers and Anno series should take note.

    FIFA Manager 10 brings a new visuals with a powerful 3D engine for the matches. We can be a football player, a coach or the president offering many options perfect for the soccer fans. Sadly It has several problems in the matches engine but the game is more focused to the spectacular way than realistic. The best addition is the multiplayer online mode. The best FIFA Manager untill now.

    As always, Telltale Games manages to capture the atmosphere of the movies, but the story of The Muzzle feels artificial and could use a twist every now and then. There are also some camera problems towards the end. But if you like Wallace & Gromit, go and get it.

    I was initially a little put off. The optics of Jazz Punk are primitive, the humor is anything but subtle. First, the gags seemed to me abundant infantile. But the longer I played, I had more pleasure in the game worlds in discovering all the jokes and some ideas from the developers that are just awesome.

    It may be a simple game, but who cares- The low difficulty makes it possible to enjoy the fairy tale world where you can be a benevolent hero and king – or just the opposite.

    It's hard to understand why they haven't managed to solve the technical problems. If you don't mind the stuttering, the game is a lot of fun, especially with four players. But it's probably worth waiting for a patch.

    Playing cards is just something for the elderly? Not Battleforge. The game combines card collecting with fast real-time strategy. After the good tutorial you have to digest a lot of information. Just imagine starting a strategy game with the last mission. But it's worth hanging on, there are a lot of possibilities. The game even looks good.

    The creativity put into this game is more than enough for three games, but behind the art there's not much diversity. But we still wanted to know how the story ends.

    This game turns everything upside down – and that’s good and bad at the same time. The physics simulation isn’t bug free and there is no story at all, but the puzzles are challenging, there are lots of save points to avoid frustration and even an online-ranking.

    It's not really the next big thing, but well done, with great characters and humor. And there is still room for a lot of sequels.

    A Vampyre Story creates a wonderful atmosphere, looks good and is very detailed, but the open end and the riddles change the picture a lot. There are not enough hints, but far too many pointless interactions. The game requires a lot of patience, which kills the fun playing it.

    A little more intelligent AI would have made the stealth and evasion exciting passages, taking somewhat more precise control of some frustrating moments. However, Warp is a nice game, everyone should try this one, especially since it only costs ten euros.
