    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.

    Battlestations Pacific looks nice, but that doesn’t help if the rest of the game is just plain boring. Every mission plays like the last one, there’s no rise in difficulty and no real connection between the missions. After playing the game for a few hours you’ll ask yourself “What’s the point?”

    The least interesting add-on for The Sims 3. There's a good amount of new accessories, but hardly any new rules or challenges. It's like EA saying here are some new toys, go and play."

    The best job of all may be to cound the daily revenue for The Sims 3 at EA, but this add-on probably comes quite close. Even though it's a bit more of the same, it's hard to escape the typical Sims charm.

    The only bright spot is the graphical and atmospheric implementation.

    It's a good game and all the ingredients are there, but it's missing the love and passion that Rocksteady used to pour into those games. The world is bigger but lifeless, the story isn't as thrilling.

    Lucasarts has found a worthy heir: Daedalic from Germany. The game may deal with rubbish, dirt and crap, but there is only one word to describe Deponia: terrific!

    If you like to try out different things and new concepts, it's more than worth a look. The co-op play, the battles and experiments with new spells are fun, but there are many balance problems and bugs the developers need to fix.

    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.

    If you know the movies you'll feel right at home. Egon Spengler still talks like a scientist, Ray Stantz still has his love handles and Peter Venkman can't walk past a woman without trying to flirt. The game is also full of insider jokes regarding the movies. But it's to short and the PC version lacks the co-op mode.

    The game still kind of works because of the KI and the good controls, but that doesn't make up for bad level design and presentation. Alma doesn't cause fear anymore, she's just annoying.

    One of the most disputed game series is back and expectations are as big as the name. It turns out to be a decent game, but there are not enough innovation to make it a great game. The multi-player mode is entertaining, but not as good as it was.

    I am really looking forward to the next mission, the next dialog, the next puzzle. As in a solo role-playing game flat. And this is not an error but a boon.

    Six little ninjas have to save animals and fight an evil samurai warlord. Each of the ninjas has its own special ability, like stopping time, playing a flute to slow down enemies or use a hammer to smash opponents. It's a simple game but it's a lot of fun.

    It's fun, but not for very long. The ideas deserved a better game, but it's still a nice change from the typical first person shooter and it's not expensive at all.

    A great playable, fun and always challenging football simulation.
