    Technically it's not state of the art, and it's killing every bit of motivation you could have collected along the way: Killing, traveling, killing, travelling in tube levels is not what one expects from a franchise.

    It's not Yakuza anymore – it's a new House of the Dead in a Yakuza environment. Poor mechanics, weird story and repetitive gameplay kill the atmosphere and leave a mediocre third-person zombie shooter.

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II can't get quite past its predecessor in terms of gameplay, atmosphere, plot and combat. No freedom for exploration is granted, the story is pretty lame, and so we're still waiting for a great Star Wars game.

    If you were ever looking for a Harry Potter-themed shooter, this is your game. Otherwise, it's just too different from the other games: No more riddles, no more sneaking, and only four hours of gameplay. Ouch.

    It's unique, but not perfect. Beginners will be frustrated very quickly, but fans of Rampage and the likes will just love the button-mashing-action. There are weaknesses in terms of handling and aiming, though.

    Despite the crude graphics Spy Hunter is somehow addictive and really entertaining. But after all the price is a deal breaker and therefore this game is not so much a bestseller as a collector's item.

    The Mystery Case Files series on PC is pretty cool and a really good choice for hidden object fans, but the genre's debut on home consoles somewhat disappoints: not enough mini games, a lacking atmosphere and the Wii's control possibilities largely untapped. Casual fans will want more hidden object games on the Nitendo Wii, but they must be better and cheaper.

    After enemy 200, the game design isn’t able to motivate most of the gamers. If you are looking for Hack’n’Slay, this is your game. If you want to solve more Riddles, Prince of Persia is the better choice.

    Finally, I can say that Stronghold was implemented very well for this MMO, and I eagerly await the final version. But we should not forget that Stronghold was released back then in the year 2001.

    Strong Bad is pretty original, but this can be the game's biggest weakness as well. His annoying voice and cholerical attitude can shrug off even the most ambitious adventurers. Check out the comics first, then you'll find out, if you're ready for this.

    In SimAnimals you, or rather your godlike hand, will do anything you can, to assure a high standard of living to some helpless garden - and forest creatures. Unfortunately, it turns out to be almost impossible to keep track of all your animals’ needs.

    This game might be a niche product, but it delivers in parts with 160 puzzle levels. Still, there's lots of wasted potential.

    Friends of complex and detailed historical turn-based strategy games will certainly have no problems to invest much time and patience in Pride of Nations, but everyone else will probably despair at the lack of comprehensibility.

    Fashion-Fans get a lot of tasks and may get inspired, what they could try out themselves.

    It's damn fun to collect bolts, shoot some enemies and improve the base-defense, but only in the multiplayer mode. Lacking gameplay-depth makes the single-player not really entertaining. In my point of view the game is ok, but it's not a true Ratchet & Clank game. It seems that Sony took the name of a well-known franchise and made a traditional base-defense-game instead of a new game in the world of Ratchet & Clank.

    All in all Power of Defense is a solid PC game. It is a mix of strategy and tower defense, but there is not enough variety to keep the gamer playing for hours.

    It's a pity where the Book of Memories is taking the Silent Hill series: Only quantity, no quality; a lack of gameplay and story; a shift in genres which should have been done with much more caution and love. Silent Hill fans, don't touch this.

    A confusing storyline, a borderline stupid AI and the monotonous gameplay are the main down sides to a mediocre adaption of the successful TV series.

    Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury is colorful, loud and fast-paced. Either you love this kind of game or you hate it. Very nice to see an editor in such a game.

    Just Dance 4 does what a party game has to do: it entertains. The Wii U exclusive features might not be enough to put it above the Wii Version, but nonetheless dance fanatics will get a well done game.

    Unfortunately, this is a very short pleasure, as there is no multiplayer mode and a lot of content is missing. Nevertheless, in its short time it offers quite some variety.

    If you can't get enough of creating colourful and unique creatures, you'll get the right tool with this game.

    After Burner Climax is an old-school arcade game. Your motivation is high scoring only, and that‘s it. Playing through all levels takes you about 30 to 40 minutes, so don‘t expect too much.

    Distant Worlds brings a breath of fresh air into the x4-genre, but only if you like micromanagement. Although newcomers can have fun also, thanks to the possibility of automation.

    There’s not much to say about Savage Moon. The game is a typical Tower Defense-offshoot. Built up towers and kill as many enemies as possible.

    "What is this place?", "Why is this place?" seems to be the question here. Why does this game exist? It's not outstandingly beautiful or thrilling. It's not outstanding in any way. If you dig the style, check it out – if not, you won't miss much investing your Microsoft points elsewhere.

    OK, Ninety Nine Nights II is not the most brilliant game everybody was waiting for. Except the nice staged sword fights with all the beautiful effects and colors there isn't much in this game. The story is too simple and cannot keep up the motivation.

    Kids and maybe some teens will have a good time. Nice side effect: The player learns some facts about the different animals.

    Fans of the Star Wars – The Clone Wars series with a friend aside will have some fun hours. Especially appealing to young gamers!

    Hysteria Hospital: Emergency Ward presents the daily routine in a hospital in a too simplistic way. All beds and tools are placed in one and the same room. Twelve years ago Theme Hospital showed how a hospital simulation should look like.
