    Shadowrun Returns meets lots of expectations outlined during the Kickstarter campaign. It's an atmospheric story based on the Shadowrun universe and its adaptations. The game looks like a good "analog" RPG session, with a clear goal and epilogue. Unfortunately the campaign is a simple, one-shot experience, and not a deep RPG system. Don't expect a complex, multi-threaded game with lots of important decisions to make - Shadowrun Returns is not like that, but a really good story makes up for it. And there's the editor that allows to create great things, but requires suitable and talented people.

    A really unique game - the developers have changed the concept multiple times and the final product differs from the basic idea. The most obvious thing is that the RPG layer is smaller and less important, than the dominant strategic one. Fans of previous games in the series may be disappointed, but strategy fans should give it a try. Dragon Commander's big advantage is the fact, that it works perfectly as a real time and turn-based game at the same time.

    Lost Planet 3 is the best game from Spark Unlimited, but that isn't a real achievement (remember Legendary?). Capcom trusted a mediocre studio from California and let them create a new installment in a well known series. Fortunately everything went ok. If you don't have elevated expectations, enjoy the cold atmosphere and got a kick out of Dead Space 3, you should definitely buy LP3. This is the best game in the series and looks like a step in a good direction.

    Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is a step back from The Dark Descent. The gameplay consists of walking from one piece of the story to the next and sometimes it becomes boring. The developers wanted to create a virtual novella, and the result lasts for 4 hours. It's a pity, that a very interesting story isn't matched by an interesting gameplay. But don't get me wrong - The Chinese Room did good and created a unique world that mirrors the mind of the protagonist. The game gets you thinking, believe me.

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 is a little disappointing - we were expecting a huge revolution, and what we got is just a beginning of a revolution (and not that perfect, to be honest). The game offers lots of fun, is difficult enough and stays on the simulation side, but lots of technical issues truly test the player's patience. There are many steps in the right direction, but at the same time there are lots of steps back.

    Gone Home is an interesting experiment, that didn't move me as much, as the developers probably wanted it to. The way of telling the story and the quality of the script seem a bit simplistic and tend to look at the gamer from a high position. Still, I think Gone Home is a step in a right direction and I really like these kinds of experiences. If only the developers had put more work into polishing the game - perhaps next time?

    Call of Duty: Ghosts has a weak campaign and a good multiplayer. It's not the best game in the series and is definitely not a next generation game. Activision has missed the opportunity to painlessly move the franchise to the next level. Call of Duty will be a shadow of its grandeur, as long as it hangs on to old technology and a boring "future war" setting, and as long as the developers lack the guts to take risks, as they once did with Modern Warfare.

    Despite a fair amount of issues (mainly technical), Deadfall Adventures turned out to be very pleasant. The campaign is varied and interesting and I enjoyed these few nights spent with James Lee Quatermain. Deadfall is a pretty good and playable game that would benefit strongly from a little more testing and rethinking of some things.

    This SimCity expansion freshens up the concept of building a metropolis, adds new buildings and solutions, but the game itself is still the same - well known and questionable mechanisms still rule, the building area is too small and some engine errors can irritate all the same. If you've been satisfied with SimCity, you should be happy with this expansion. If you want bigger and more complex changes, you won't find them here.

    If you don't like playing online, don't buy Shadow Fall just yet - either wait for a serious discount or forget about it entirely. The game isn't worth buying just for the campaign, which turns out to be poorly designed, kind of boring, uneven and unoriginal. New Killzone is really pretty, but its biggest asset is a well designed, engrossing multiplayer mode.

    Forza Motorsport 5 is a truly great game burdened with very bad marketing choices. It has an excellent driving model and superb graphics, but lack of some basic elements and the publisher's greed, that makes gamers pay lots of extra money for something that should be free, are really serious flaws. In case this extra content is made available for free, I will happily modify my opinion.

    Zero Sum Games has created a worthy addition to the 4X genre. What is more - modders are already creating more and more cool modifications for StarDrive. Ergonomics and gameplay rules should be more user-friendly, but the game itself is far from boring or tiresome. 4X fans will be pleased.

    The developers have put too many different ideas into Lords of Shadow 2, and the end result is a bit messy. We have a great combat mechanic that is flawed in a very important place. There are cool special powers that are useful only in certain parts of the story. Stealth gameplay bores instead of being exciting. Still - for every mediocre idea there's a great one. Lords of Shadow 2 is a lesser game than its predecessor, but still generates many hours of fun.

    In terms of gameplay mechanics and story progression inFamous: Second Son is like a typical sandbox game from the previous generation. The most important thing about it is the graphics - they're amazing, and Seattle in this game outshines every other virtual city. Second Son is "just" a good TPP shooter that shows the power of PS4 - but there will be lots of better and prettier games for this console in the future. Buy it only if the graphics are the most important thing for you and you need to test your expensive new equipment. Otherwise wait for a price drop.

    Another DLC for Mass Effect 2 turned out to be quite mediocre. The story on its micro level doesn't bring about impressions similar to the basic game. Lack of emotional ties with the main female character and very few moral choices don't engage the player. However, this DLC is being saved from oblivion due to the macro level of presetned events and their connection to the main storyline. Reapers' involvement plays an important part.

    For now this add-on can be recommended only to die hard fans of turn based games and people, who are naturally equipped with a high resistance to technical issues. Other players should put their purchase decision on hold until some patches arrive. And despite all this complaining, waiting would be a good decision because underneath these deficiencies lies quite a good game.

    Development of cooperative games is a contemporary standard. A gamer aware of the fact that he or she can play the game with a friend, brother, father or a stranger on the other side of the planet is a happy gamer. Even if sometimes it turns out that the game isn't as good when played alone. That's why it's hard to grade Hunted: The Demon's Forge – I had a good time, but I'm aware of all the imperfections of this game.

    UFC Personal Trainer is an interesting game but not for everyone. A person looking primarily for some fun and then for the possibility to do some work done won't find anything interesting here. But if you're not interested in graphics and are looking for some real workout - it's the right thing for you.

    Captain America: Super Soldier can't be called a total failure that all comic book fans should stay away from. But it's not a game that is equal to the best of the genre. What we got is a quite well produced game with deep and good looking fights. If smacking down enemies is the most fun thing for you, you can try it out. If not - look for something more complex, prettier and longer.

    From Dust is a fun game, especially when someone wants to play god. Light and short missions allow the player to enjoy creating the world but after a while boredom creeps in. The locations change but the player is forced to do the same things over and over again. It's a game worth getting to know thanks to its great physics engine, but its not for everybody.

    An interesting game, especially for fans of tower defense genre. It's a peculiar game in its category but its advantages come mainly from the visual side (design, animations) and not gameplay. Rock of Ages isn't a complicated game and success during playing depends mostly on luck. It's an arcade title and planning, though important, stays in the background.

    An unfinished game with many bugs casting a shadow on an otherwise good and demanding FPS. Do you remember all the announcements preparing us for a multiplayer campaign and cooperative skirmish? These modes are not finished yet. I'm disappointed that a game not so different from the beta version appeared on the market. Tripwire Interactive has a thing for supporting its games so I'm sure that after several patches and mods Red Orchestra 2 will fly. But for now it's not worth a full price.

    Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is a good game but not in the same league as it's predecessors. I believe it wasn't supposed to be like that but it seems that Insomniac put less effort into it. Perhaps making two big games at the same time is too much for this team?

    The experiment which is Need for Speed: The Run has failed. It's not an unplayable game, of course. You can spend a couple of fun hours, but only after accepting some controversial gameplay solutions. What is sad is the fact, that even the supporters of Black Box's new game can't play too long in single player modes and that affects the final grade.

    The technology and mechanics clearly show how good this game could be. Naughty Dog's genius spark is missing and what we got is just good craftmanship. It's a great base for a real Uncharted for PS Vita, that most likely will debut in a year or two.

    The game has lots of flaws but it's hard to overlook the fact that during a dozen or so hours I had fun. This imperfect collection of ideas has that elusive element of satisfactory gameplay. I can recommend it to gamers with co-op partners that know that it's just a shooter set in a familiar universe.

    Ninja Gaiden 3 is a spectacular (but not very pretty) slasher without a complex fighting system. Not everybody will like the changes and hardcore fans of previous games will surely be disappointed.

    We have lots of modes to choose from, but Kinect Star Wars is just a collection of minigames that is different from, say, Kinect Adventures only thanks to its Star Wars setting. It's one of better Kinect-only games, but skeptics won't be persuaded.

    Sniper Elite V2 is a well-made game that suffers from some flaws. The biggest one: artificial intelligence. It's hard to overlook it's mistakes if they happen almost constantly. But other that that we get a meaty campaign with good co-op and multiplayer modes. Balistics - although a bit limited - gives a lot of satisfaction.

    Game of Thrones creates mixed feelings in the player. Story-wise it's a true gem. The protagonists' fates are very interesting and all the events expand and at the same time fit perfectly into George R.R. Martin's brutal universe. Unfortunately - in order to see the finale you have to endure hundreds of monotonous fights with an interesting, but flawed fighting mechanic.
