    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.

    Black Mirror III, despite grim predictions of being a repetitive game and a failure, turned out to be a really good product. The next installment of the series does a good job of continuing the tale of Gordon family's curse, explains most of the ambiguities and probably ends the whole story.

    It's true, that the Japanese can understand terms "learning curve" or "friendly user interface" differently. But who cares? After Dragon's Dogma it will be difficult for me to return to simple QTE or "click on enemy" gameplay. It's one of the best adventures on the current generation of consoles and a truly unique game, that tries to redefine and open-world action RPG.

    I like Red Faction: Armageddon as much, as I like Guerilla. Both of them love to destroy everything in sight, even though they are really different games. I think that people who like previous installments of the series will definitely feel at home and should have lots of fun. Lack of an open world is compensated by a well compacted and explosive gameplay. Destruction is really absorbing and a well balanced introduction of novelties keeps the game fresh. It's a pity there is no real multiplayer but it's still a good deal for your money.

    The new Tropico can be recommended only to those who aren't familiar with the series. For everyone else (especially for fans of this tropical dictatorship) buying Tropico 5 will be a missed investment - the developers are offering the same bottle of rum with a different label. It's still the same good, old Tropico - without significant changes in gameplay, flawed merchant routes system, technical issues and the addition of a multiplayer mode.

    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.

    Fable III is a good game but not everyone will feel equally entertained by it. It's a game aimed at a gamer who does not look for many paths of character growth, doesn't measure statistics and wants only to run around a fairyland and complete some very funny quests. If you manage to approach Fable III with such an attitude, Lionhead's game will guarantee many hours of great, fun gameplay. But if you're looking for an RPG - just forget about Lionhead and Peter Molyneux.

    Alice: Madness Returns is a great example of an oldchool 3D platformer that most certainly won't appeal to most fans of fast action games. It's a game kind of from a different age. The only modern thing about it is having to look for hidden items.

    Lovers of adventure games have had some big expectations regarding The Next Big Thing and the developers have met most of them. This is by far the best Pendulo game. An original gameworld spawned a great variety of characters and locations, and the story - although a little humorous - keeps the player entertained and immersed. Dan and Liz are very likable and we tend to cheer for them from the first minute.

    The Dark Eye: Chains of Setinav is Just one example of a reborn genre of classic adventure games. It's a game that deals with the subject in a very typical way, but shows a technological direction for other developers to follow. It's one of a few games that draw so much from a real fable – the atmosphere amazed me. It's a very good game that lacks some final polish.

    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.

    Despite a few minor setbacks Pro Cycling Manager 2011 is a game worth recommending to all the fans of cycling. The game's core is at its best but the off-racing zone would benefit from some additional development and tweaking. Nevertheless PCM2011 is an absorbing game and has some really nice graphics. If you are looking for something fresh that will keep you entertained for months (thanks to community's modifications), Cyanide's newest game should meet your expectations.

    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.

    Can Batman: Arkham Origins be considered a failure? Definitely not, but it certainly is a game without a spark of genius. The developers have used previously constructed assets and prepared a well-crafted ending to the trilogy. It's not as good as Asylum or City, but fans shouldn't be disappointed. Origins is still a very good Batman game - not original, but extremely effective.

    Magicka is a game that works especially well in cooperation. Single player experience is a good one but this game shows its true potential only when you play with friends, allowing for some great fun. A patched-up Magicka is most certainly worth getting to know. Even more, because it is a solid candidate for 2011's best game in its category.

    The Sims 3: Supernatural is a really well-made expansion that offers long hours of entertainment and opens new ways of experiencing the world. Each character is a new progress path and it would be a mistake not to try them all out. Moonlight Falls has some interesting places that - after dark - lure monsters and are a source of many exciting night encounters. Despite some minor technical flaws, the newest Sims 3 expansion is a great way of providing a new look on this crazy world.

    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.

    Space Marine is a solid production - worthy of highest Patriarchs' praise. It has some flaws - minor technical issues (mediocre graphics, errors, lags) that fortunatelly fade in the light of Emperor's grace, that the game preaches. And may it do so for a long time.

    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.

    F.3.A.R is a difficult game to grade. On one hand you see some flaws every step of the way. A weak storyline, a terrible ending and lack of scary moments disappoint the most. Graphics, especially in the artistic departament, are weak as well. But on the other hand Day:1:Studios still managed to create a game full of great fun. All the flaws don't change the fact that it's the most entertaining shooter in a long time. Every encounter with the enemy gives a lot of satisfaction even if you have to repeat some stages a couple of times.

    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.

    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.

    The Secret World isn't your traditional MMORPG, but there's no denying, that it's one of the most inventive games in the genre ever. Funcom has delivered lots of well thought out, interesting innovations and the gamers get a perfectly crafted wold and lost of fun. But remember – it's not a game for people with slow Internet connection; they will suffer from texture pop-up, severe lags and occasional server disconnections that can result in their character's death.

    Despite some mistakes and minor flaws, Syndicate is a very good shooter that should satisfy gamers in need of a challenge. The game is hard, sometimes too hard - you die more often than in most modern shooters, even though health recharges itself. But thanks to a great fighting model having to complete a difficult part for a tenth time should still be enjoyable.

    2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil is a proof that you can create a World Cup-themed FIFA game with lots of new features and an atmosphere of this great sporting event. We get official teams, pretty stadiums, special game modes and more aggressive AI on the football field. This game can be proudly called a high quality official virtual counterpart to the real thing.

    A really good game and it would get the highest grade in its category, if it wasn't for some technical issues. What is more, this game isn't for everybody. It's difficult to begin, soon gets even more complicated and overwhelms with the amount of things to take care of. But all of this seemed great for me - I want a sequel that has a much bigger budget!

    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.

    ArmA III has kept me busy for months, and its final version made me feel ambivalent. On one hand we have a great technological leap, on the other - poor content. Sure, ArmA III isn't your regular shooter that needs to have an interesting, long campaign - it's a game that lives through the community - but it's a pity, that the gamers were given so little to work on. Arma III was supposed to be great, and right now is only promising.

    Online incarnation of Neverwinter is an interesting proposal for fans of MMO and action RPG, that enjoy a fantasy setting. The game is pretty and playable, but I'm not sure if the Foundry is enough to keep players for a long time. Creating your own quests is really cool, but it does not make up for an unbalanced PvP. Let's hope Cryptic Studios considers all of the opinions and solves the problem of expensive micro-transactions, as well as gives max-level players something interesting to do.

    The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is a really atmospheric addition to the series. The story is original and very interesting, puzzles are top-notch and demand lots of thinking and the gameplay is satisfyingly long. What is more - there are some really pleasant surprises along the way. I think it's the best installment in the series and it will be hard to top this one, but I have hope. That's the way to go.
