    It's been a long wait for RAGE to finally hit the market, but the wait was worth it. The game may have some weak points, like a speech- and nameless hero or the weak boss fights and ending, but RAGE offers some crazy possibilities to spend your time in this post-apocalyptic world.

    Tekken Tag Tournament is a well-made successor of the old PS2 game. The tag team fights add new tactics and new elements to the game. The game recycles a lot of old stuff, fighters, stages, even the soundtracks. However this is not bad at all, because if you play the game you get this strong old Tekken feeling.

    Disney Princess: My Fairytale Adventure surprises with a really good mix of gameplay, atmosphere, Disney flair and variety. There are some customization features and an extensive game world.
