    Rig'n'Roll could have become an interesting trucker simulation, but it is very monotonously and the truck-driving is most of the time more boring than fun. The simulation of the own trucker-company gives you a lot of possibilities, like employing some truck-drivers for you company and buying them different trucks to drive with and earn money for you.

    The "movie-2-game-adaptations suck"-cliché strikes again. Frustrating for Potter-fans – confusing for those new to the franchise. You might want to skip this one, but there's still part two coming up – better luck next time.

    SBK Generations provides four years Superbike action with licensed teams and racers. Unfortunately the game has a weak atmosphere, modest graphics and sounds, as well as a boring AI. Milestone Studio should really start to develop the franchise, instead of copying the old version over and over again.

    It is a creative 3DS game. You control the tiny ninja by using the gyrosensor in the 3DS. That is pretty creative, but a iPad or iPhone has also a gyrosensor, so why has Cubic Ninja been published on the 3DS? There is no real use of the buttons or the 3D effect.

    Deep Black: Reloaded is a third person shooter with great potential in gameplay and graphics, but the level design is simple, the gameplay offers no special features and one fights against the same enemies all the time. However, if you search for an uncomplicated shooter and don't mind some problems in gameplay, graphics and story, you could give Deep Black: Reloaded a try.

    Fast Food Panic is a game without story and it does not challenge at all. Graphics and sound effects look and feel outdated. In my point of view, the only assets are the idea to make a fast food cooking game and the complete utilization of the Wii control options.

    With its visuals, the shallow storyline, its limited size and gameplay failures, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 proves that games being delayed several times often show deficiencies in quality, which results in an unexpectedly low fun factor.

    Iron Sky Invasion creates a trashy, funny atmosphere, like the film does. However, it has a simple and slow gameplay with really boring missions. Maybe there are some few Iron Sky fans, who like the game, but if you like complex, tactical space battles, Iron Sky Invasion is not the right game for you.

    If you are willing to overlook the bugs in the game, you will appreciate a space-action title like Tarr Chronicles – at least a little. If it moves, don’t ask and shoot. The missions do not surprise, also the story sucks.

    Cities XL 2012 is a solid city builder, but unfortunately, nothing more. Play depth isn't as big as one might expect, the graphics are more resource hungry than truly good, the trade system makes you hope for online multiplayer in vain. That, and it's really just an add-on to Cities XL 2011.

    Sony went new ways with Wonderbook, but the debut-title The Book of Spells has some weak points. The story vom J. K. Rowing and the Harry Potter-air are great, but the detection doesn't work correctly the whole time, the game is too short and the gameplay is repetitive. I hope the next titles for Wonderbook will unleash the full potential of the new device, because The Book of Spells doesn't.

    Puzzle Bobble Universe is really entertaining. It's funny and challenging, but only for 88 levels, because there aren't more levels in the game. Also the missing multiplayer modes, the lack of innovation and the pure 3d feeling are lowering the score. If you like Puzzle Bobble, the game is pretty nice, but you don't need a 3DS. The game could easily be published on the DS/DSi with nearly no losses on graphical details.
