    Entertaining, but shallow co-op and not really a successor to the RPG series.

    Offering battles for magical artifacts on nine different battlefields, Microsofts multi-player shooter is the first game to bring PC- and console-gamers together, - driving both of them crazy, while charging for it.

    Insane 2 develops all his fun-potential only in multiplayer mode, at least in the abstract. De facto I detect a fellow player on the abandoned servers only in exceptional cases. My advice: Just organize a LAN party once again, as it used to be. Then Insane 2 becomes a guaranteed life of the party.

    Alter Ego offers a thrilling story combined with simple puzzles. If you are willing to accept a lot of walking around and old-fashioned graphics you'll be rewarded with an entertaining game.

    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.

    Order of War is like a popcorn war: fast and tasty, a nice little snack, but not a full meal. It's too easy for veterans and not impressive enough for casual gamers. But if you are looking for occasional fast battles, it's a good choice. It won't get less complicated than this.

    The single player missions are very similar, but in coop this game is extremely entertaining.

    Autentic interactions with the main characters of the series can't change the fact that there's no real freedom of choice and that kills the fun in the end.

    It’s more than just a simple game with a move license. The crazy game world is filled with good gameplay ideas, so it‘s easy to ignore the flaws.

    If you were hoping that Tales of Monkey Island would at least end in some kind of fireworks of ideas, you will be disappointed. Dull and without creativity, this is how Telltale ends the series. It's well meant, but disappointing. It's not bad, but just not enough for Monkey Island.

    Don't forget to read the small print or else you'll get in trouble like Shrek. What may be the last of the Shrek games is also the best, at least for younger gamers, because it's not a very demanding game.

    If you don't expect too much and just take the game for what it is, you can have a lot of tun with it.

    It’s simple, but nonetheless a motivating game with lots of mini challenges and variety. It’s probably more suited for younger fans of the movie.

    Only two months after releasing SBK 09 Milestone starts selling the next racing game – no wonder it feels a bit rushed. It rarely manages to come close to similar games like Race Driver: GRID. It's not a bad game, though, and good enough for a few laps at lunch break.

    Despite the name it’s neither dark nor empty and not even filled with lots of fun, either. Sure, it’s fun for some time, but doing the same things over and over again, using the same weapons in levels that are very similar, too. It could have been much better, now it’s just a mediocre game.

    It's great fun, but after 15 it looses it appeal. But that may change with mods.

    I definitely had fun with Retro City Rampage, that much is clear.

    Once you're over the especially steep learning curve you'll be able to play around in an extremely huge space sandbox.

    A real fresh setting that let's you forget that it's just a game character that's being hunted. A great achievement for a game so unsightly.

    Space - spectacular and boring. The first few hours give the impression of playing one of the best online games ever. So it's even more disappointing that Black Prophecy sinks so low afterwards. The story just stops, the quest are boring and ships and talents should be more complex. Let's hope for new content soon.

    No Hearthstone killer - yet. But with improved quests and the promised new card sets it could soon be one of the best games of the genre.

    MySims was created for very young gamers, but is more than just "Sims Light" with cute graphics. It's actually quite complex, especially for children. The rewards and challenges are very well done. If you're less than 10 years old, this may be for you.

    The search for the best angle to take a shot, the good controls and smooth gameplay combine into a fast-paced foray, which ends just as fast after only four hours. There should have been a multi-player mode, the father and son characters almost demand a co-operative mode. The game is cheaper than usual, but it's still too expensive for a game that short.
