    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".

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a good game that generates a lot of fun. Unfortunately in comparison with two previous LEGO games it doesn't look that great. This "brick Marvel" is one of the best recent superhero games, but at the same time is a mediocre "LEGO platformer" game. Comic book fans should be pleased with Traveller's Tales' effort, but LEGO fans should keep playing The Lord of the Rings.

    Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD is considerably better than some cheap remakes that offer only higher screen resolutions. The developers have put a lot of work into their game and skillfully adjusted it to fit with PCs and big consoles (although there are some issues). Is the "small" Assassin's Creed worth your time? Yes - for this price it's a really decent game, even though the story and music are really weak.

    The LEGO Movie Videogame is a really decent game that will charm only the most hardcore fans of Danish bricks. The mechanics are well-known, there's lots of things to do and find, but you'll find almost no novelties - if you've given up on the series, you won't come back. If you simply can't get enough of LEGOs, then buy it. But watch the movie first - you'll avoid spoilers.

    LEGO The Hobbit is a well-made game that doesn't break any new ground. Interesting story, atmosphere of the movie and a large world coexist with old gameplay solutions and well known issues. Middle-earth made of bricks has great potential, but the developers apparently don't want to take advantage of it all (yet). Fans of the series and Tolkien worshipers will definitely have fun for many hours, but they won't be amazed.

    The newest expansion to Men of War demands tons of patience and some knowledge about military equipment. It's one of the biggest strengths of this product, but at the same time its biggest flaw (nobody likes a boring game, no matter the theme). The developers put lots of work into a strictly military aspect (weapons, ammo, multitasking, various difficulties) and it paid off - it is the essence of Assault Squad 2, you just have to like it very much.

    The Sims 4 is a game taking a big step forward and then two steps back. A new emotions system is a breath of fresh air, creating your sim and your home have been improved, and it's all good. Unfortunately: frequent loading screens, a not-so-open city, a dull neighborhood, few careers and lack of many things known from previous games create an overall muddy image of the game. It's good, but not that good - fans could be disappointed.

    A straightforward evaluation of Maxis' newest creation is very difficult. On one hand we get an absorbing, futuristic hack'n'slash (a rare thing!) with fun cooperation and a variety of heroes. On the other hand it's not a great game - a weak storyline, poor PvP and some minor setbacks don't let me grade Darkspore especially high.

    New Traveller's Tales' game is a job well done that provides an absorbing entertainment for many hours. But that doesn't mean we have the best installment of the series in our hands - only a Pirates of the Caribbean maniac will think so. The developers have given us a simple, next-in-line game without any spectacular surprises. Does it mean sad routine and no heart? Fortunatelly no - belt-system production never provides stunning results but the LEGO series is still defending itself from losing its identity.

    Patrician IV is most certainly the best game in the series. It triumphs with a vast array of options, better audio and visuals and atmosphere. I have no doubt that the game will turn out to be a success - fans of the series can buy it without hestation but everyone else should think twice.

    Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is a puzzle-arcade game with some shooting elements and as such is a job well done. It satisfies but does not enchant. It seems that the game would be better if the developers focused more either on the puzzle side or on the shooting side. The game's strongest moments are its looks and boss fights but you need to remember that a trip to this interesting world won't last longer than one afternoon.

    You can invest your money in The Baconing if you're a person, who has enjoyed previous installments of the series. But I can easily recommend it to people who are new to Deathspank. The only condition - you have to be ok with monotonous bashing of hundreds of enemies and crave some absurd humor.

    I wasn't expecting miracles - the word "revolution" hasn't been associated with id Software for a long time. But still I was expecting an 8/10 game and even during E3 it seemed Rage would be just that. Unfortunatelly sometimes things simply don't work that way. Various flaws of the game - beginning with a fairly short single player, ending with technical issues - don't allow me to call it a well made product. I had fun, but that's not enough to praise a game that doesn't belong on a shelf labeled "hit".

    Take on Helicopters doesn't revolutionize the simulator genre but most definitely will go down in gaming history as an interesting experiment. Have the developers focused more on the "simulator" part, the game could gain more recognition among hardcore fans.

    Despite many unfortunate decisions and rusty technology, CorePlay's game is a good return of the Jagged Alliance series. Going real-time hasn't dimished the tactical aspect, and team development and better equipment provide fun equal to what the best RPGs can give you.

    There is not enough games that tend to smuggle some deeper content under the guise of entertainment. Alan Wake is one of the few. Alan Wake's American Nightmare isn't even trying to be in the same league. It's just a fun little game that allows you to shoot monsters.

    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is a game that continues the series' tradition, but makes a slight turn. Instead of a rich story mode with the possibility to visit all the locations, we got a limited game that is more difficult to get into.

    Buying this collection can be recommended, but only to people wanting to get to know Dante's origins and experience a still fun slasher legend or to those players, who somehow have missed Devil May Cry's original debut. Regular players be warned: a bit archaic graphics can put you off.

    Prototype 2 is a solid game, but I want for it to be the best. Sandbox games tend to keep me entertained for a long time, therefore I like studios that are up for the challenge. Radical Entertainment did their homework - the game has seen a lot of work, but too few good ideas. What really works is the strength of the Prototype itself: it gives the player unique abilities in exchange for some invention.
