    Hard Reset is a very decent debut - a game that reminds (in a very nice way) all PC gamers of the somewhat forgotten times of simple but exciting shooters. It's very pretty, very explosive and very short. But still it's worth the money the developers want for it and, perhaps, with sufficient sales they will be able do create a true bestseller in the future?

    New PES is a significant step forward in terms of gameplay and defensive actions, but it has some minor flaws and unnecessary solutions that allow to easily gain field on the opponent's side. It's a pity, that the developers decided to introduce simplifications in offensive actions - dozens of goals and faulty opponent defensive aren't the things we want to see.

    It's the best game using Middle-earth's franchise that has beed developed in the last 10 years, but you have to remember that other Tolkien based games are not a thing to be very proud of. It's a well made game that deserves a chance. It has some budget implied simplifications, but a Middleearth fan should experience one of more satisfying journeys.

    Namco's newest game should be recommended "only" to those players, that require the most basic ways of beating up another person. Fans of more complex modes will stop playing after a couple of nights and forget about the game soon after.

    All in all, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is a good game that tries too hard to fit into a market shaped by Call of Duty's success. Ubisoft's race against other franchises looks quite well, but losing the series' roots can be disappointing.

    Resonance is an interesting story almost to the very end. A game that challenges fans of the genre by introducing some new things into the gameplay. It's a modest, pixelated clickfest that will take gamers on a long journey and give them lots of fun. Resonance reminds us that a game is first and foremost a story, a way to deliver something, a form of expression – much like a book, a comic or a movie.

    Quantum Conundrum offers fresh gameplay mechanics that are used to create interesting challenges. The game is constructed in such a way, that looking for solutions for problems is fun and solving them gives a lot of satisfaction. Moreover, the campaign lasts for 5-6 hours what is a rather good accomplishment for a reasonably priced, download only game. There is just one big flaw – lack of overall polish.

    Dawnguard is a well made, quite long expansion that doesn't live up to all our expectations. It's import ant, because this DLC costs 1600 MSP, which converts to a fairly big amount of money. But if you're a fan of Skyrim and can't wait to become a powerful vampire lord, you should give it a chance.

    Retribution is worth your time under one condition –you like online shooters, you don't get carried away with emotions and will treat this game as entertainment and not a fierce match to the death. Game mechanics is perfect, you can easily feel differences between weapons, even after a slight modification. The game uses Unreal Engine 3, is well optimized and looks nice, although the industrial style and sterile locations prevent you from being astonished. I'm not a hardcore shooter fan, so after a while – even with all the weapons and customization – I became bored. Retribution offers nothing new.

    Playing Unmechanical is a very pleasant experience. You get from one puzzle to another and try very hard to come up with a solution – what needs to be moved, pressed, stacked or opened to progress. Unfortunately, the end comes too quickly. The whole game will take up to 4 hours for a skilled player. There are a few ways to get to the finale, but still Unmechanical leaves you wanting more. Perhaps it is so, because a longer gameplay would become frustrating? It's hard to say.

    Risen 2: Dark Waters is a really well made game regardless of platform. Comfortable controls and a variety of improvements are great advantages of the console version, that unfortunately still suffers from some flaws. The biggest ones are: poor optimalization and some minor setbacks considering picture quality and saving games. But if you try to let them slide and perhaps drown your sorrows in rum, you will recieve a really good game.

    All in all, the Leviathan DLC is a really good product. We get 4 completely new locations, a handful of new systems to scan, that generate new War Assets, some gear and one new ability (dominate). The most important thing is of course the story - and I pretty much can't say anything bad about it. Leviathan is a tasty piece of code for the lovers of Mass Effect lore, but fans of shooting should be satisfied as well. If you want to keep saving the galaxy as Commander Shepard, it's a great opportunity to do so.

    Resident Evil 6 is a game full of opposites. On one hand there is an interesting story, on the other - it has lots of cringe-worthy moments. There are excellent boss fights and clever puzzles, but there are some really boring and repetitive shooting levels as well. I don't regret over 30 hours (RE6 is long!) spent playing this game, I can't recommend it to everyone. But all in all Resident Evil 6 is a good game and deserves a chance.

    The new version of famous Worms isn't as original as it's great predecessors from more than a decade ago. Fortunately it's still a good game that shows its full potential during multiplayer matches. Single player isn't as exciting, but neither this, nor mediocre graphics change the fact, that playing Worms is fun. Revolution introduces some well thought out innovations, but that's no true revolution.

    Painkiller: Hell & Damnation brings no shame to the original game. Guys from The Farm 51 took their job seriously and tried to freshen up the series the best way possible. Younger gamers have the opportunity to look how FPS games looked almost a decade ago, and older gamers get to go back in time but with really nice graphics. Hell & Damnation, despite old mechanics - is a game that's worth checking out. Killing hordes of demons is very pleasant.

    The new incarnation of Need for Speed: Most Wanted is something we have seen before. Developers from Criterion Games have merged Burnout and NFS, but the name Most Wanted is just a marketing ploy. The game has almost nothing in common with its famous predecessor but it's not a bad game. The British developer is one of the best racing games creators and has a certain way of doing things - their products are always at least good. Even though Most Wanted looks like an autoplagiarism, it's a game capable of giving lots of fun.

    Warriors of the North is a good game that provides many hours of fun, but at the same time leaves a lot to be desired. The developers show too little creativity when it comes to putting interesting new things in their games. Even Warrior Princess offered more in that department: flying, a rebuilt skill system, new locations. This game takes too much from its predecessors and offers not enough new things. King's Bounty would benefit from a revolution - a sequel built from the ground up.

    Primordia is a nice little s-f game. It's ugly, classic and short, but at the same time intriguing, well thought-out and quite literary. A game that tries to tell something about important things, but does so without being pompous. It's a modest game that has a huge spirit. An adventure game without impressive graphics has to rely on content, smart script, atmosphere and style. Primordia does well in almost all of these things, but definitely is not a breakthrough game.

    The final DLC for Borderlands 2 has two faces. One is that of many new things: interesting maps, different from everything we got to know and a variety of completely new, well designed opponents. That's the "good face". The "bad face" is presented by the means of the shortest and most dull single player campaign yet. When compared to other two add-ons, Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt is the weakest one. But this doesn't change the fact, that fans should consider buying it, because it's most definitely worth the price.

    Dead Space 3 has a long campaign full of well known things. There are claustrophobic hallways and some bigger, more open spaces. There are some spectacular action sequences and many quiet, suspenseful moments. Pretty landscapes are mixed with ugly, repulsive necromorphs. Unfortunately DS3 isn't scary and has a really stupid story. Still the gameplay is really pleasant and new additions in the form of a smart co-op mode and the weapons creation system are a breeze of fresh air. The developers prove that they have ideas and courage to take some new roads.

    Crysis 3 shows that Crytek follows the path from Crysis 2, but tries to incorporate things from the original game. This nod to the gamers deserves some respect, because the developer could have taken the easy route and prepare a completely linear campaign. Still - the mix of open and closed gameplay isn't as good, as one might expect. Even with this grand arsenal of resources the game turned out to be less satisfying than its predecessors. It's not a step forward - it's more of a job well done by talented people, that perhaps were pressured by the market or deadlines.

    Gears of War: Judgment is an attempt to freshen up the series, but without messing with core gameplay. Declassified missions are a cool little thing, but a very superficial one - it's meant to persuade you to complete the campaign one more time. And the campaign seems a little out of ideas and has a mediocre story that teases a big bang at the end, that turns out to be a small firecracker. Still - there's an additional, fun mission and an excellent multiplayer mode. Judgment is worth buying, but not necessarily right now.

    Cities in Motion 2 is a step forward. We have bigger, more complex cities, there are great new timetable and ticket selling systems, and we get an opportunity to build roads and modify the city's infrastructure. Sequel is better in terms of running a public transport company and even though there are some things that didn't work out and you encounter some technical issues, you can clearly see that the developers have done their best. Good job.

    The way you look at Injustice: Gods Among Us depends on the way you felt about the last Mortal Kombat. If you had fun, you'll like the new game. If you wanted something more serious and demanding, you'll be disappointed. But all in all NetherRealm is in shape and still is a worthy competitor in the beat'em up genre. Injustice delivers spectacular moments that should attract a new audience, and this type of games will definitely benefit from that.

    A prettier, more interesting and better-made almost-sequel. The developers have taken many critical opinions into consideration and the result is this: many of the flaws of the original game are now a thing of the past. I had a good time, but all in all there are too few new things and revolutionary changes to consider giving a higher grade. If this had been the game released almost 2 years ago, the overall impression would have been better.

    The Incredible Adventures of van Helsing is a really nice surprise. The game has a unique gothic atmosphere, a well designed character development system, dynamic combat, storyline with decisions to make and some tower defense elements. Unfortunately there are some errors and issues - a silly economy model and weak epic items, for instance. Still - Van Helsing isn't a game visibly worse, than other hack'n'slashes out there. If you like gothic mixed with strange machines, it's worth checking out.

    The Bureau is a good game. I like the fact that it forces teamwork, has a great atmosphere and solid graphics. The aliens tend to attack with various and difficult to kill forces from the beginning - that's good as well. Unfortunately later on the magic kind of disappears - the story becomes silly, fights get easier and the interface irritates more and more. But taking all things into consideration, The Bureau is a solid, well made game. A cool appetizer to all the big games arriving this fall.

    Beyond: Two Souls is a difficult game to grade - you have to answer a question: do you mind having the gameplay play a supporting role? Because an interesting story, great characters and some really exciting moments are most important here. Beyond is a typical Quantic Dream game and it additionally simplifies many aspects. I had fun experiencing this story, but Heavy Rain is a better and more interesting game.

    GTA Online has great, but not fully realized, potential. The developers need to sort out problems with servers and some irritating gameplay issues, and after that we need to be given an expansion with bank robberies. Fortunately the entire online mode for GTA V is going to be updated on a regular basis (from new missions to new clothes and haircuts). And for now - get some friends together and go do lots of seemingly absurd things. The fun is tremendous.

    After a flawed first incarnation of Final Fantasy XIV, Square Enix has rethought everything and now offers a much more polished and user-friendly game. A Realm Reborn isn't a breakthrough, but generates lots of fun. The game has a rich world, unique atmosphere, well thought-out gameplay systems and lots of things to do - Final Fantasy fans should be more than satisfied. It really is "a realm reborn".
