    The game is a little on the easy side but Activision have definitely hit their target audience right in the bull eyes with this title. It just needed some more refining to make this a better game.

    London 2012 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games is easily the best inspired Olympic Games to have ever graced the console world which features a collection of well made gaming events. As mentioned, the game does suffer from some repetition and it would have been great if the game featured an RPG aspect that allowed you to level-up and further your sports men and women.

    It does showcase the potential of this control system for the PlayStation Move and for those people who are too busy to get to the gym regularly, this might be the perfect addition to keep them active until the weekend.

    I would recommend the title for fans of the movies and old school fans also. Hardcore gamers might not get enough out of the title to make it worth the purchase, but I would still heartily recommend renting it to those people.

    In the end, Dungeon Siege III is an interesting game and works on most of its basic levels. It may not change the genre dramatically but it still provides a sturdy gaming engine with a relatively interesting story. It's a shame that the multiplayer aspect of the game is severely hampered by its limitations but as a single-player, Dungeon Siege III thankfully works.

    It’s certainly not as ‘awesome’ as its movie counterpart but there’s some genuine fun to be had with this.

    BANG! offers an addictive online gaming experience that could very well satisfy not only casual card players, but hardcore Mafia and Werewolf addicts who are tired of waiting for their turn. Priced at a great value, there's really no reason not to pick this title up. If this sounds like the game for you, head over to bangvideogame.com to check it out.

    In closing, the game is the best representative of the WRC that is presently out, whether it is the best rally game is a different matter.

    What this does offer is a complete trouble free and simple arcade racer that offers a unique game play mechanic, if you are looking for a pick up and play arcade racer and don't want to pay for a full price game then this is definitely worth a look and will pass several hours of your time.

    This is one of the better hidden object games and proves that this genre is still alive and quite healthy. For most veterans of this genre, it will take them around 6 to 7 hours to successfully complete and for newcomers, a little more, depending on how often you use the hint system.

    This game is not for everyone but if you're looking for a fitness game with some SLAM behind it, this may be for you. Just be warned that you will need coordination and the lessons needed to be a little bit more in-depth.

    Time and Eternity may not be as polished as other Japanese RPG titles but it does give the player a standard experience that for the majority of the time, I enjoyed. It definitely could have been better as it stays in the safe zone, rather than try to challenge the current genre.

    Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel is a worthy addition to the Army of Two franchise. Third person shooter fans will feel right at home here and as a fan of the series I enjoyed the story. There are some issues with the game and it lacks replay ability other than to unlock more gear or playing on higher difficulty settings. The Devil's Cartel is a solid shooter with some key differences from most other shooters on the market.

    In conclusion, Sonic Lost World is an above average game on the 3DS that unfortunately has a few issues with the control system which sometimes challenges the gamer when the clues or pathways are not that clear in the gaming world.

    In conclusion, XG Blast is a good arcade shooter that doesn't try to be too clever on the DS and features some classic gameplay for those that enjoy this genre.

    For parents looking for a game without the violence or complications and you're looking to get a Kinect for your kids, definitely check this game out if you're after a second game. However Kinect Sports come first than this!

    With access to online leaderboards and some great puzzles thrown into the mix, Boulder Dash-XL makes a welcome return to the XBox 360. The only issue with the game is that the new graphics seem a little complex as opposed to the original game.

    When a game is so far outside the square in terms of creativity, it can be a dangerous dance between something ridiculous and genius. Fortunately FreakyForms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! falls into the almost genius category with its charming and simplistic gameplay with massive customisation options. With fun gameplay, easy controls, this is definitely the most quirky game of the year and if you're looking for something totally different, check it out!

    While Out of the Park 14 is a fun fantasy styled game, gamers with not much interest in baseball or waiting (because of the real time aspect) won’t enjoy this game as much as sports fans and fantasy sports players.

    'Of Orcs and Men' is a flawed game, to be sure, but it also holds your attention and actually challenges you, unlike many hand holding releases of late.

    In the end, this game has been designed for a younger market and is actually not that bad. It does lack some replay value and some of the mini-games are a little dull but for the most part, it's actually an interesting concept, especially with the inclusion of three gaming universes and their six characters. Compared to some of the other Move games available now, I would have to say that this is definitely the better of them for kids. Just be warned that the game does work better with both Move controllers.

    Book of Memories will disappoint those purists who are not happy with the changes made to the series. For those looking for a dungeon crawler RPG based in the Silent Hill universe this is absolutely ideal.

    Tron: Legacy from Disney Interactive Studios is a surprising fun ride. Short in the single player experience, but can have a longer life with more diverseness added to the multiplayer free for alls and team matches that go on.

    At its heart, the game features a collection of mini-games which some work and some just don't. Just like all casual party games, Start the Party does target the younger gamer, more specifically those under 15.

    Farming Simulator 15 is not for everyone but if you enjoyed farming simulators than you've come to the right place!

    In the end, Lord of Arcana doesn't break out of the traditional RPG formula and has quite a few parallels with Monster Hunter, although Monster Hunter was far superior in terms of an overall gaming experience.

    Sure, Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn may not offer anything new but it does offer a relatively fun space game with larger than life battles

    Monopoly Family Fun Pack Xbox One truly pays homage to the original board game and creates a very clever virtual replacement.

    In the end, Crossboard 7 is a relatively basic Kinect game but it does showcase this technology. At times, it showcases it well, at other times, it's a little lacking.

    Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires is a fun title on the XBox One but a little repetitive and is also showing its age.
