    Forza Motorsport 7 is solid, as always, though there seem to be more technical hiccups than before.

    To give an MMORPG a fair judgment is a difficult one. MMORPG’s develop through years to achieve the goals they have for it. Still a MMORPG needs a solid base to achieve those goals. The character creation is massive and for MMO standards unprecedented. The classes on the other hand, are a little bit boring, certainly till level 10. But the way the story is presented makes up for a lot. The climax is Abyss where PvP is pushed to a whole new level. For the PvE players among us Aion might be the right MMO to go with.

    PES is far from perfect, but if the ball starts to roll and two players are competitive to each other, you start to believe in PES again. Konami is pushing this game in the right direction and let us hope that Konami stays on this path. PES stays PES, and FIFA stays FIFA. It’s a certain feeling that should be generated if you play one of the two games. If you’re willing to put some time in this game, you can play for hours with joy.

    Guitar Hero Live is the comeback the franchise needed. FMV is used well and the original way of letting you play two hundred songs of free DLC is great. It is a pity though that it does not really feel like you are playing the songs yourself.

    Darkstalkers Resurrection offers a nice opportunity for the lovers of hardcore fighting games to jump into something else, with all sorts of modern comforts that we’ve come to expect. It also offers a lot for the rookie fighter who wants to improve but can’t find himself in the current offerings of street fighters, iron fists and comic book characters. The learning curve could’ve been evened out a bit more, but it is tough to actually get caught up in it. It’s just too awesome for that to happen.

    Monster Hunter 4: Ultimate is looking for a bigger audience in the West and does a good job toward that goal. However, the explanation is too spare and many parts of the game are boring. It is awesome hunting those monsters though.

    Because of the many different power-ups Blur has a deep tactical layer that especially holds its own online. The singleplayer mode teaches you the basics, but the real fun is to be had online, or split screen with your friends. For people without an internet connection the lifespan of the game is significantly cut down because of the lack of quickplay.

    Borderlands gives the lonely gamer a kind of monotonous experience, but it is great when you invite some friends. The story is really thin and the world is kind of lifeless at some points. But tons of weapons, quests and the urge to level to the next stage makes the game entertaining. A solid game for those who like to play together, instead of against each other.

    Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is more accessible in comparison with his predecessor, but is still very hard. Succeeding gives a lot of satisfaction. Your teammates respond pretty well on your commands, but sometimes like to go their own way. On the visual side the game is awful and the missions don’t give you the chance to explore the big island.

    Wii Fit Plus finds a way to tweak the Wii Fit’s formula a little closer to perfection. The new options guarantee that you’ll be spending a bit more time with both your feet on the Balance Board and the controller firmly gripped in your hand. It’s not a real game in any form but it is a unique way for getting a bit in shape.

    The game has a unique graphic style and gives you the possibility to kill cute creatures in a brutal way. With more players on the couch the game comes to its full potential, but at the same time it could be very chaotic on the screen. The biggest downfall is that the gameplay is mostly the same throughout the game and there aren’t many checkpoints. But if you take your time to glide on a massive pile of blood, all will be quickly forgotten.

    Dante’s Inferno feels a lot like God of War, but in the end it is a great game to play!

    Battlestations: Pacific is a really cool cross over between the action and strategy genres. The game surpasses its predecessor in every aspect and is really engaging. Sometimes the controls of the battleships are a little bit too sluggish, but nonetheless Battlestations: Pacific is a wonderful product.

    Terraria is a game you can completely lose yourself in, also on consoles. The transference to controller was mostly successful and other elements like a map and a (short) tutorial make the game more playable. It still throws you in the deep end right away though, so learning how to swim might take some fishing around on the internet. Whoever manages to get through the first, nearly impenetrable, layer, awaits a deep world with expansive (home-made) adventures.

    Alien: Isolation is a worthy entry in the Alien universe. Thanks to the great attention to detail, the visuals are a triumph in modern game design and are recognizable to everyone who is familiar with the original motion picture. The game becomes a bit predictable later on.

    Bionic Commando is a great experience for action-fans. Flying around with your bionic arm is lovely and we just love the action which comes out of that. There is a lot of stuff to discover and the soundtrack is superb. The only downfall of the game is that the story is a bit short.

    Joe Danger: The Movie is more than just the funny and crazy little nephew of Trials. The game is varied thanks to the many different vehicles. We did however miss an online multiplayer mode.

    TrackMania DS is an entertaining racing game, which crisp visuals and fun gameplay. It packs a lot of content, and more than enough challenge to keep you playing for a long time. The game isn’t completely flawless though. Cars crash through the racetrack and against the invisible walls, while the screen on the Nintendo DS is often too small to display the tracks adequately.

    Heroes of Ruin is a mediocre game if you'd just stick to single player. But when you delve into the dungeons online, it turns out to be surprisingly good.

    Overlord II is a fun game to play. The humor is sometimes a little bit over the top, but the minions are very finny. The gameplay brings a lot of different puzzles and we just love the music score. The camera doesn’t always works as it should, but that is also something you can get used to.

    FTL is a simple looking space adventure with an amazing amount of depth. It has a high difficulty and an enormous amount of strategic possibilities. And despite the fact that it's somewhat monotonous at times, FTL is an unique and refreshing space game where danger lurks behind every light jump.

    Yo-Kai Watch is both on the outside as the inside a very attractive game. The funny and unique Yo-Kai truly make this game worthwhile, even though it involves too much walking and searching. This is a great introduction to the franchise.

    Deadlight is an original zombie platformer in which the emphasis lies on surviving and puzzling. The graphical style reminds us of other XBLA games, but Deadlight gives it its own twist. The few downsides to the game make it a living hell every now and again, but you'll quickly forget them when you chop your hatchet into a zombie skull.

    Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is an entertaining game. It is obviously created for children, but still contains all the elements you'd like to see in a Batman game. Especially the puzzles are well crafted and will make sure you'll never be doing the same thing for five minutes. The only downside are the problems with the multiplayer, but that slight hiccup doesn't stop this being the best Lego game to date.

    A bundle of two cool beat 'm ups that are still worth playing. Although the second part is the classic that you can keep playing over and over again, the first is more of a fun addition to the package. The online and offline co-op work perfectly, and the new vault point system with which you can buy game-additions is a nice bonus. If you want to play one of the best beat 'm ups ever, you should play Chronicles of Mystara.

    ZeniMax and Bethesda did a great job turning the Elder Scrolls into in an MMORPG. The amount of players doesn’t always match with what TESO’s trying to do, but when it works, it works really well. With its mountain of content it’ll be long before you’ll get bored with it.

    Heroes of Might & Magic 3 is still relevant, but the PC-version of the past is still superior (even though it lacks HD graphics of course). The iPad-version of Heroes 3 is handy for a quick game on the go, but you would have to take the time to get used to the touch controls. However, the strong gameplay is definitely worth it.

    Dynasty Warriors 8 is more of the same, but better. Changes have been made that make fights more varied, like the affinity-system and rage-mode. There are many weapons to collect and officers to unlock, so there's enough to do. All storylines will keep you busy for more than twenty hours, and then there's the Ambition Mode. For fans of the series this is the best one in years. For critics it's the same dumb game. Typical Dynasty Warriors.

    Vengeance equals a visit to your local snackbar. The fries (four new maps) are well fried, but there's a soggy one there in the form of Detour. Thankfully Buried, the hamburger special, is very good and fills the hungry gamers stomach up well. That's what it's about in the end.

    Resistance Retribution offers a great deal of entertainment, both in the relatively lengthy single player and in the impressive multiplayer. It lacks the polish and overall impressing quality of a game like God of War: Chains of Olympus though, and once again confirms the fact that the PlayStation Portable will never be able to handle a First/Third Person Shooter.
