    Gunslinger is a well made game that put the series where it belongs (after a moment of weakness in the form of The Cartel) We get great, comic book-like graphics, a well told story and exciting shootings. There are two serious flaws: the dueling system is too complicated and unintuitive, and the damage system can easily become infuriating. But the good takes over the bad (and the game is far from "the ugly") and Gunslinger simply keeps you glued to the screen.

    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".

    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.

    Don't Starve isn't a game for everyone. It has a high difficulty level and focuses on survival - those things probably will discourage casual gamers. On the other hand, gamers who like challenges and Minecraft or Terraria-like gameplay should consider buying Don't Starve. A complex crafting system, random worlds and pretty, handmade graphics are the real selling points of this game. Many days of fun lie ahead - give it a shot!

    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.

    Both parts of Baldur's Gate have been given a ton of excellent modifications that make the Enhanced Edition look poor. The overall grade given to the "new" Baldur can seem controversial, so let me explain. Baldur's Gate as a game deserves a full 10 out of 10, but the Enhanced Edition introduces so few interesting new elements, that it's impossible to give it more than 6/10. And in this case we really should consider only the new content.

    The newest game about Transformers is a worthy successor to War for Cybertron. The same dynamic gameplay is now enriched with new elements, that make Fall of Cybertron an even more enjoyable game. It has a big, engrossing campaign, a beautiful Cybertron and a cool multiplayer mode (that you'll invest many hours in). High Moon Studios' game is something great not only for the fans of giant robots. If you want fast and playable action - you'll find it here.

    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.

    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".

    Tropico 4: Modern Times is a very good add-on that expands on all the possibilities of the basic game. A long, complex story mode allows for a full usage of new buildings, edicts and new solutions introduced with technological advancements, and facing world's problems in a micro scale gives a lot of satisfaction.

    Another CoD is a sure thing and a guarantee of high quality fun. The campaign in Modern Warfare 3 is extremely spectacular, unfortunately multiplayer took a step back from last year's Black Ops - small maps and matchmaking issues are very serious problems. You can't overlook the game's old technology as well. Even though it doesn't hinder breaking sales records, which is a strong enough message for Activision, that revolution is the last thing Call of Duty needs.

    Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition has a similar problem to the previous installment: it has to compete against lots of free mods. Fortunately the developers have learned a thing or two and now the game has longer, more complex missions and some clever technical novelties. It's still a game for older, more hardcore gamers, but it's important to appreciate the fact, that Enhanced Edition finally offers a lot more than any free mod does.

    State of Decay is a game for people looking for a solid gameplay element (Telltale's The Walking Dead is excellent, but it's "just" an interactive story). State of Decay tries to show an emotional plot, but first of all it gives a lot more freedom, combat and exploration. The developers have ignored polishing the details and concentrated on building a convincing survival system (one that is more complicated than "how many bullets have I got?"). I think they nailed it - I had lots of fun and intend to revisit this universe in the future.

    GRID: Autosport is a game aimed at fans of the first GRID. Autosport focuses on different elements than GRID 2 and presents a different approach to racing. Arcade lovers should stay with the previous game, and simulation (well, sort of) fans should consider purchasing Codemasters' new game, even though it's not the prettiest racer out there.

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is an excellent game. The most important things were improved, and new, bold ideas turned out really great. This is still the same game that attracts millions of players every year, but you can feel a much-needed breath of fresh air. Simply put: this is the best Call of Duty game since the first Modern Warfare.

    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.

    Everything that is important for the Wargame series has been improved or expanded in Red Dragon. The developer has introduced naval battles, but unfortunately this novelty looks quite poor - which is a shame, because it was supposed to be the biggest new feature. Still, the game itself is miles above mediocrity and keeps on providing lots of fun for wannabe generals.

    The Walking Dead: 400 Days is a good expansion, but definitely not good enough. This DLC is very short and does not use the full potential of new characters (there isn't enough time to care for any of them). What's more, every piece of the game allows to play with the gameplay mechanic in different ways. The most important thing are the dialogues and attempts to introduce character in a very short time span. All in all (despite its flaws) 400 Days is a must buy for fans of the series that want to continue the story.

    From the very outset there are different play-styles offered up, including co-op if you fancy it: Capcom Vancouver want this to be your experience, and while it does stutter from time to time, this is a game well worth playing, so long as you can stomach the B-movie acting and gore.

    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.

    A strategy game full of absorbing gameplay and a one of a kind dictatorship atmosphere. It's a pity that fans of the previous game could feel a little disappointed with a small amout of gameplay changes - sure, the whole campaign has been written from scratch but adding only a few new buildings, factions and challenges seems not enough. On the other hand, the developers managed to keep the original mechanics and used some well known patterns in a good way.

    End Game DLC will appeal to fans of battles that feature all kinds of units, where every soldier has a role to play. Capture the Flag makes a return, and even it is sometimes frustrating, it demands the team's cooperation, rewards crazy runs and offers tons of excitement. New maps go well with old game modes, and new vehicles provide variety. All in all, End Game is a worthy closure to BF3's series of add-ons.

    Starhawk has some great moments. Situations that give the illusion of taking part in a great battle somewhere beyond and still dependent on the strategic skill of the players can be seen quite often. But the price is that you have to spend additional time playing.

    F1 2013 is a better and more varied game than its predecessor - Codemasters fixed issues and filled in some missing gameplay options. The new F1 Classics mode is great, but has far too little content. There's no revolution in the virtual Formula 1 world, just a simple return to the right path. The new F1 is a well made and really pretty racing game that generates lots of fun - and that's the most important thing.

    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.

    Conqiustador's main problem is its small budget. You can't shake the feeling that lots of things weren't finished properly or were simply drafted. The developer's ambition was big, the end result is not that great. There are too few adventures, a too simple character development system, too schematic battles and the game lacks the option to act for yourself (instead, you always work for someone). All of this adds up to a sandbox game with an interesting universe and original story, that is boring and limited.

    I honestly don't know what the deal is with Shadows of the Damned. Great names produce a fairly good game - we should be happy. But despite that I feel something's not quite right. It's just like being fooled by Banksy's "Exit Through the Gift Shop". But maybe it's a good thing? Reservoir Dogs' ending left us with a feeling that something is off as well. My intuition tells me to smile: Electronic Arts introduced a new franchise to the market and that's a dying habit. I recommend Shadows of the Damned only to those that can keep a healthy distance to the world of video games.

    In theory Anomaly 2 is a sequel better in every way, but after a closer look you can see some flaws. The game is prettier and more spectacular that its predecessor, has a lot of interesting ideas and guarantees the same amount of fun. What it lacks, is more content - the campaign is too short, and the multiplayer mode has too few maps and variations. This is a well made evolution, and not a revolution.

    A mad, break-neck ride and locations changing in front of our eyes on such a scale is something that the competitors haven't had a chance to show. Evolution Studios have yet again proved to be a true master of off-road racers.

    Fans of previous Sherlock Holmes games could feel a bit disappointed with some simplifications and dividing the new game info 6 separate cases. Fortunately it doesn't affect the gameplay that much, although it seems as if the developers tried to do too many things at once. All in all the most important conclusion is this: Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments has a lot to offer to wannabe detectives and they definitely should give it a chance.
