    Arkham Origins only surprises with its story, but otherwise it´s a predictable and in many ways roughly polished prequel. If Batman isn´t boring you yet, or if you´ve always wanted to try an Arkham game, then Origins doesn´t do much wrong, but we´ve come to expect better by now.

    Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is as stylish, sick and hypnotizing as its predecessor but at some points things go south. The levels are too chaotic and the characters limit your playstyle.

    Valley of the Yetis is without a doubt the biggest downloadable content for Far Cry 4. The snowy valleys are a great place to spend your time, and the nightly defense missions and the yeti are a great addition to the original gameplay. The yeti could have been a tad more challenging though.

    Kick & Fennick has a slow start, but the last hours of this adventure are certainly worth your time. This side-scroller offers an awesome puzzle world with challenge and action, but we do feel that this game could have been much more. A deeper story and less repetitiveness perhaps?

    Alice in Wonderland looks fresh and brings an entertaining adventure. The puzzles are fun to play, but sometimes the answers are a bit to easy to find.

    Fable Anniversary is a game with all the good and less attractive parts of Fable: The Lost Chapters. It concerns a big visual overhaul that doesn’t work as well as it should in every part of the game and should’ve gotten a bit more attention. The strength of this adventure game remains intact though.

    Strider is a fun action platformer that's a decent homage to the original games from the eighties and nineties. The game could use a creative impulse when it comes to enemies and environments, but you won't want to let it go because of the variety in powers and tight action.

    This remake of the fifth part of the Dragon Quest series is a game which does what’s it’s supposed to do. It is a good game, but it could have been a lot better. The battle system works and the training of monsters is also very recognizable. Nevertheless, you still get the feeling it could have been more innovative. We do like the story, because it keeps you going. Whenever you feel like putting down your DS, you still want to know what is going to happen next. Dragon Quest isn’t as good as Chrono Trigger, but it’s still a fun game to play.

    Thief isn't the game that most would've wanted. The core of the series still stands, but is also limited by strange uneven moments. Main character Garret controls nicely and the world looks great, but this story isn't as strong as it was in previous installments. This Thief is at its best, simply does what Garret does best: stealing everything he can.

    Sam & Max: They Stole Max's Brain! contains some smart puzzles and a strong story, but slightly disappoints after the great Sam & Max: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak. The game is quite short, but the predictable cliffhanger still leaves you wanting more.

    Yakuza 3 manages to stay loyal to its predecessors but also knows the same highs and lows. The story is interesting and complex but is of to a slow start and the best parts are most definitely the Yakuza boss fights. In the end Yakuza 3 is a game of traditions who in this modern age seem kind of dated.

    Kirby Super Star Ultra is a nice collection of adventures from the pink superstar. There is just not much to say about the platform action in the game. The difficulty setting is – certainly for a Kirby game – nicely picked and the gameplay is not the same trick in every adventure. Eventually is the core of the game the same as you aspect, you have to save Kirby by getting him through the levels. Kirby’s adventures are entertaining but not Super or Ultra as it says in the title.

    Star Ocean: The Last Hope – International is a decent RPG with some beautiful music. The story starts of kind off slow but the Last Hope's biggest sin is the fact that we had to wait so long for the PS3-version.

    Although the game is quite easy and The Spice Girls are present in the game, Band Hero is still a fine game within the Guitar Hero series. The game looks stunning, the set list has some really nice highlights and practically all the little annoyances are gone. Kudos!

    Two years ago I wrote I hoped the developers would make a successor to LocoRoco more challenging. It appears they haven’t heard my calls. The game still possesses the same charm and cuteness, especially for people who missed out on the first installment in the series, and the soundtrack will make anyone smile. LocoRoco 2 gets repetitive in the long run though, and adds very little to the original game.

    Freakyforms Deluxe might be one of the most bizarre games we have played on the 3DS so far. It's a chaotic combination of silly jokes, childish graphics, platform action, weird music and your own creative mind. One moment you're saving a king with a pink, smart phone owning dinosaur and the next you'll be scrubbing the back of your own car… underwater… with a moustache. In short: this game makes absolutely no sense, yet it is brought in a way that makes it quite fun to play.

    People who enjoyed episodes 1 and 2 will definitely enjoy this third entry. But that also means that Episode 3 does not really offer anything to attract new fans. It is more of the same, without any form of evolution. But, the constant fun we have had makes this title still feel like a good buy.

    As always it is a great feeling to puzzle your cutesy Mini's all the way to the end door. It is solid puzzle-gameplay with a happy feel to it, but it does not really excite us. Nothing new is added to the franchise and the TV does not add anything to the game besides better graphics.

    Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection is a collection of almost fifty games. Most of them are well worth playing. The nostalgic feeling is great and a lot of bonus material can be unlocked. The only two downsides are that none of the games has an online multiplayer and that half of the games are already downloadable.

    Broken Age: The Complete Adventure feels as a great adventure, thanks to its moving storyline, charming humor and high production value. This is a classic point-and-click- adventure with a great design and dito voice-overs. It is such a pity that halfway through the game a lot of content is re-used and puzzles make you walk a around for no reason.

    Beyond: Two Souls is amazing. This statement can be taken positively as well as negatively. Positively, thanks to its unmatched cinematic action scenes. Negatively, because of the limited gameplay. What starts as an emotional, exciting story, ends up being a grotesque tidal wave of paranormal crap. That makes this more the spiritual successor to Fahrenheit than Heavy Rain.

    Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat is still a creative and swinging platform fest with a great point system. To bad Nintendo saw it necessary to add and change some stuff to the game that in some cases ruins the experience. The original was better but anyone who didn’t get the chance to play this game back in the day is going to have a blast in this colorful platformer.

    CastleStorm steals elements from a bunch of games and turns it into a fun whole. The charming style and many options to attack of defend with your castle make this a fun trip to the middle-ages.

    The Sly Trilogy is a very strong collection. The games have had a nice wax and are still very fun. The second part is the absolute high point in this trilogy and the other two are most definitely still worth playing.

    Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles has some nice moments, especially when you are playing the game in co-op mode. We like the idea that you are going back to Racoon City, but the game is far from perfect. The camera is annoying and some bosses are just plain stupid.

    Just like a painting you should really only look at Proteus once. Explore and discover it. A second time might show a few things you've missed along the way. A third time you'll just mostly see things you've already seen. From that point on, the experience break itself down.

    Tearaway is a great game that intuitively uses the Vita's capabilities, on paper. The graphical style is very charming, is easy on the eyes and invites to touching the screen and rear pad. It starts of quite slowly though and throws too much of its own principles overboard in the final chapters to be to amazing game the Vita desperately needs.

    Despite the somewhat forced feel of the mysterious vibe, Nightsky is still a good game. The ten different worlds offer a good amount of levels that need to be solved in different ways. A good combination of puzzles and skill.

    The Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection is a great collection. The first games are just the starter for the exemplary main dish: Budokai 3. Everything you'd expect in a Dragon Ball game is present, without destroying the balance of the game.
