    Lost Planet 3 is unfortunately a game that does not try to push the genre. It's a sturdy third person shooter with a touch of first person that comes across a little too familiar and dated.

    Avadon: The Black Fortress is a an exciting new adventure that delivers around 30+ hours of gameplay (depending on frequency) and tells a great story.

    It's worth a short distraction, there may not be enough here to keep an adult occupied and wanting to get to the games finish.

    At a bargain price point, Warlock: Master of the Arcane will be just enough to keep those fantasy fans entertained without breaking the bank.

    Bound by Flame is a little overpriced considering its gaming flaws.

    In conclusion, Fist of the North Star Ken's Rage 2 is a game that would have been better if it was released several years ago. It suffers from dated graphics and gameplay that is not only repetitive but hampered by the fiddle some camera.

    Scene-It? is a fun party game that will sit on the shelf gathering dust until the next social gathering.

    In end, Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D is an interesting game for kids but unfortunately once you have played the game, there's very little replay value. It's also a shame that the multiplayer aspect is quite limited but if you have a boy in your family who loves dinosaurs, I'm sure they'll get their fair share of play from Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D.

    In the end, EA did try to do good with this game but for me, there were too many inconsistencies of the interface to the graphical problems. To compound the problem, The Sims 3 was actually far sturdier and dare I say, more fun on the DS as it was a strong game overall, not so on the 3DS version.

    Overall, for those wanting to scratch that point and click itch, you probably already have this game, for everyone else, The Next Big Thing features interesting characters and an interesting story and may be a good excuse to have a break from some twitch game play and simply enjoy the story of the game and flex that brain muscle.

    In conclusion, Ape Escape provides a relatively short game for the gamer and doesn't add anything new to the franchise nor makes good use of the Move capabilities. It's unfortunately one of those stock standard Move games that seems to be the go at the moment.

    Unfortunately it's one of those mediocre movie games with standard graphics and gameplay.

    Warhammer is a game that will appeal to fans of what has already gone before. I'm not sure that there is enough meat in the title to convert newcomers and I would highly recommend a rent first. For those who have loved this series in the past then I can say gladly to pick it up and watch the characters you've known and loved kick some serious butt.

    All in all, Temple Run Brave is a quick cash in on the movie with a relatively entertaining yet frustrating game with the Disney stamp of BRAVE.

    The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is an intriguing and well-written interactive adventure, it's just a shame that less attention was paid towards the presentation. It may be just the PS3 version, but the frame rate may be an unfortunate distraction for people used to the high standard set by the current generation of hardware. For fans of the series and characters however, there's plenty of solid narrative and development that may cause you to look at your beloved Holmes in a much darker light.

    If you are an avid Pokémon fan, what you get with Black & White Version 2 is a true Pokémon experience.

    There is plenty of levels that will take hours to get through, it is ultimately a repetitive experience, it can also be very addictive. There is a lot to do here, it is a premium price point for what is a simple game with simple and addictive game play. If you are looking for an enjoyable pick up and play title for the Vita this may be the one for you, simple to play with a steady difficulty curve.

    With a little more time in the developing stage Medal of Honor: Warfighter could had been something that EA had hoped for, but with the fast turnaround times they expect, the game just failed for the most part. While it's not Thor: God of Thunder (the worst game I have ever played) it just doesn't live up to other games in the same genre.

    Compared to others of the adventure genre, Cognition Episode 2 is pretty average. It serves as a solid continuation of the Cognition story, but if anything it offers just a little less than the first installment.

    On the whole, Omerta offers an engrossing(if not deep) strategy experience with a mediocre-yet-sufficient combat system thrown in. It's a shame that Omerta was released so soon after XCOM: Enemy Unknown, as the comparisons are unavoidable and Omerta simple doesn't offer the same quality. Omerta can still be a lot of fun, but the price is not right for most gamers.

    To those who’ve never played a SimCity before, it’s definitely worth your time. However keep in mind in 2003, Maxis made SimCity 4. It is still a great game, it’s much cheaper, it runs on any old PC, and it’s all about YOU.

    Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory does have its issues but if you can move pass the graphics and sometimes dated gameplay, there is actually some gaming gold to be found. In terms of completion, we completed this title is just over 40 hours which is huge and definitely gives you value for money, especially if you like Japanese RPG.

    Overall I would recommend this game if you have a few hours to kill and don’t want to play anything overly complex. It’s a fun game with solid controls and intense boss fights. Whether or not it is worth the price tag is really hard to make a call on; perhaps buying the game when it’s on sale through steam is the best bet.

    I wanted so much for this game and at the end of the day, it's more a tech demo than a fully fledged game.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal World Duel Carnival is an interesting duelling card game on the 3DS but lacks any real replay value, especially with no 2-player support

    DriveClub is not an awful game but feel free to skip this one as you’re not missing much.

    Overall Tears to Tiara II: Heir of the Overlord is a solid entry in the JRPG genre and worth a visit if you’re a fan of games of this type of ilk.
