    High Value as a package Deal. The Saints are back and kicking some Demon Tail in the DLC Stand Alone Add on.

    In conclusion, Race Pro is a above average racing simulator that has a sturdy control system and some great car models. My only gripe with the completed game is that the background environments are unfortunately quite lacking and at times looks like a game from a few years ago.

    If you're growing a little tired of the FIFA series or Pro Evolution Soccer but still want your soccer fix, than you really should check out FIFA Street as it offers players a whole wealth of new gaming mechanics, online modes and some honest gaming fun. With a sturdy career mode and the option of taking your squad online, FIFA Street is rife with replay value and more importantly, pure gaming fun! Recommended!

    Due to the steep learning curve, Yggdrasil will not be to everyone's taste and does require a lot of patience. It does reward though with one of the better hard-to-master thinking-man's board games out there. Although for the impatient amongst you, it will punish.

    The control issues should be easily rectified by an update in the future and the slightly underwhelming story does little to distract from the gleeful destruction and chaos that forms the crux of the title.

    As a complete package, The Dishwasher : Dead Samurai is good value at 800 points, and is a nice modern touch on a classic arcade style.

    In conclusion, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning provides another immersive gaming experience that will force many people to lock themselves up again while they complete this game. It's also a strange game that uses modern RPG elements and also classic RPG elements that creates this strange hybrid RPG system that works on most levels but may feel dated for some. Given that, if you're a fan of RPG titles and need something after your Skyrim addiction, than Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning may be the perfect game to fill that spot!

    An excellent arcade racing experience that has literally hundreds of races while giving gamers the wondrous new experience of 3D gaming.

    In the end, Lock On Platinum is a very realistic game that contains a rather steep learning curve. If you have never played a simulator before, the realism may turn you off but if you are after a very realistic and engaging flight simulator, than this is the game. The attention to detail is amazing and even the subtleties are there from the slight differences between the US and Russian planes.

    Dragon Ball Z Xenoverse is no next-gen title but is still fun to play on the PlayStation 4, especially if you're a fan of DBZ!

    Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is a puzzle game that doesn’t just exist to solve cryptic riddles but also to provide pure entertainment and enjoyment.

    WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011 is still the best wrestling series available and features everything fan girls and boys need for their home console experience. The action is fun, the control system is improved but best of all, it's all that customisation that is given to the player that makes this game so competent. It's a good all rounder game!

    As Call of Duty: Black Ops features great graphics, strong gameplay and almost perfect multiplayer options, this add-on is a must to players who enjoy their world of online multiplayer, not to mention zombies.

    In the end, EA have created another fun game on the iPad and iPad 2 and have successfully ported their Need for Speed universe onto this format. The gameplay works well on the iPad and the controls are almost perfect, although a little simplistic at times.

    PES 2013 is once again a lot more realistic and gives the player more (tactical) control. Due to the slow tempo and the many tactical ways of putting your team on the field, every player can put a well thought through game on the pitch. Unfortunately the goal is mostly defended by incapable, badly trained chimps and on top of that the game also has some traditional PES-problems: bad animations, few licenses and an overall lacking finish. PES 2013 is like F.C. Barcelona playing in a tiny 500-person stadium; the quality of the game can never really be fully appreciated.

    In the end Alice: Madness Returns is a fun game that really twists the traditional arcade platformer with the acid like world of the original Lewis Caroll's Alice in Wonderland.

    Mega Man fans will eat up this game, and for anyone who has been previously defeated by a MM title in the past, this is your redemption point as the Easy mode will finally give you the satisfaction of completing a title on your own.

    Overall, Avernum: Escape From the Pit is a solid RPG experience that combines classic style, a compelling story, and generous content to create an indie game that is very much worth your time. If you're looking for a complex single player RPG and value content at the expense of visuals, don't miss this title.

    Sound in the game is superbly done, the music sound track fits the look and feel of the game. With sweeping grand music and drumming beats fit for the grand epic adventure that the game is. So too is the voice acting, with flair and conviction and an earnest truth ringing in the words.

    We may have seen it all before but the EyePet Move edition transcends the original premise and creates a rather well made virtual pet game that is so abundant on the Wii and the DS. Great graphics, good use of the PlayStation architecture, this might become a must have game for the younger gamer.

    It may not be your traditional racer but if you want to try something different in the world of racing games, than Wipeout 2048 is definitely a game you should investigate. It contains some brilliant gameplay, great graphics and lots of replay value, especially with the inclusion of online.

    THQ's Darksiders may not be the most original game, however it works by giving the player a fun gaming experience that attempts to be clever at certain times and actually succeeds.
