    We love H.A.W.X. and we hate H.A.W.X. For every good thing there is something bad. We’ve played it for a long time, but never got really excited. Collecting experience points and unlocking stuff is cool, but the gameplay gets repetitive. H.A.W.X. looks really good, but has a bad storyline. The game is good, but at the same time disappointing.

    Despite the graphical glitches, poor collision detection, and frustrating (lack of) integration of the world map, Rise of the Argonauts is simply a good game. Both story and dialogue are well-written, the action is awesome and gory, and the skill-upgrading system is thought out really well.

    Wet
    WET has some fantastic moments, but is plagued by some annoying deficiencies. It’s really cool to swing through the levels with the well formed Ruby and at the same time shoot some nasty enemies to oblivion. But after a while playing this game, you find yourself doing the same thing over and over again, and the controls aren’t that precise. It’s a fun game you should get when it’s budget priced.

    A worthy Assassin's Creed title. Thanks to the three costumes of protagonist Aveline the game has its own character. Unfortunately the game is somewhat spoiled by all the mandatory touch and camera features, which often don't even work. Other weak points, like the stuttering frame rate and the bland story make it that, despite the best intentions, Liberation doesn't quite live up to the stature of its bigger brothers.

    This game offers the same addictive strategy gameplay as its predecessor, but this time the graphics are a lot better and there is a story instead of missions. However, it is a disappointment to discover Ronimo did not include an online multiplayer.

    Project X Zone is a decent turn based strategy game, in which the recognizable characters obviously are the most it’s got going for it. That’s also its biggest issue: if you’re not familiar with games such as The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, then many parts of the game aren’t appealing to you anymore, or even not understandable at all. If you do know characters like Hsien-Ko, KOS-MOS and Kurt Irving, this point of critique doesn’t apply to you.

    It is fun to play around and experiment with spells; it gives Wonderbook: Book of Spells a charm only to be matched by the Harry Potter universe. It is a shame, however, that the exams you have to take lack creativity and become predictable in time. It degrades an atmosphere that is otherwise magical.

    The Godfather II is a technically flawed game. Glitches, pop up, framerate drops are quite frequent and the soulless sandbox world isn’t too appealing either. The upside is the strategic element of the game. It’s fun to coordinate attacks on rival families and to take over businesses by using excessive force. All in all it’s great fun if you’re not turned of by the technical issues.

    Katamari Forever contains a creative variation of missions in different graphical styles, but brings not a lot of real changes to the game. If you have a Katamari game, you should probably not get Katamari Forever. If you are a Katamari fan or if you never played Katamari, this is the time to get it. But be aware, just a small group of gamers will appreciate this game.

    Fans of 50 Cent, rest assured. 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is way better then 50’s first game. Sometimes it is even a lot of fun to play. The combination of 50 Cent’s music and shooting around gun blazing creates a perfect setting for fans to enjoy.

    Cursed Mountain has some really worked out aspects, but isn’t delivering a good quality on every front. It’s a game that you could hate after a while but has some unique perspectives at the same time. Cursed Mountain is a trip for a good eight to ten hours, if you don’t have any problems with the controls and linear maps.

    The Last Tinker: City of Colors is a cheerful game, but starts of dreadfully slow, has boring combat and scanty background music. This hurts the atmosphere. Look past these blemishes, and what remains is a colorful game that entertains for quite some hours.

    Metro: Last Light manages to give shape to the world described in the books bearing the same name beautifully. The claustrophobic and grim atmosphere really come into their own thanks to the great graphics. Unfortunately the immersion is often broken by static npc's, a lack of interactivity and the idiotic artificial intelligence doesn't offer much of a challenge.

    Order up! offers both variation in gameplay, as well as interesting use of the Wii-Mote. The game is challenging, and thus entertaining for a while. It proves that casual games can be fun, albeit for a certain amount of time.

    CyberConnect2 created the ultimate game for fans of the show, with JoJo's Bizarre Adventures: All-Star Battle. With the forty characters and five different fighting styles the game is as extravagant as you might expect. Unfortunately it's also very unbalanced and the story mode disappoints when it comes to appearance. The micro transactions in the campaign are also quite repulsive.

    Obviously this game is one big commercial party for the movie, but we must say that this add-on does offer more than just demo-like gameplay. Ignore Ludacris and focus on unlocking eleven new cars, drive online and feel that awesome freedom that comes with driving in Forza Horizon 2.

    It is very fun to go wild with the Wiimote in Virtua Tennis 2009, but there is a lot of room for improvement. The career mode is very boring and the Wii Motion Plus need some fine tuning. The minigames are however very funny and it is entertaining to play with some friends.

    X-men Origins: Wolverine manages to rise above the low standards of licensed videogames by presenting spectacular fights without complex button combinations. The monotonousness and some small technical difficulties make Wolverine a game that can only be recommended to the fans of the anti-hero or anyone else who enjoys simple but enjoyable popcorn entertainment in a videogame.

    Wheelman is a relatively successful movie based game without a movie. It translates spectacular over-the-top cinematic racing action to an accessible game, set in the pleasant surroundings of Barcelona. Unfortunately its gameplay is so dumbed down that it lacks any challenge whatsoever, making Wheelman a decent – but flawed – snack that lies somewhere in-between GTA IV, Driver, and Burnout.

    ScreamRide is not about a theme park, it is about an experience. A nice game for speed freaks and destroyers, because it feels great to crash your ride into a building. However, the futuristic setting combined with all these separate levels and a separate tutorial makes this game feel a bit optional.

    Although Overlord Dark Legend is fairly short and easy to finish, it delivers enough fun to keep you playing. There is enough variety in gameplay to compensate for the lack of difficulty, and commanding minions with the Wii-mote feels like a natural thing to do.

    Singularity is the kind of shooter we haven't seen in a while, one who doesn't take itself too seriously. The realism of games like Call of Duty or Battlefield: Bad Company is traded in for weird weapons and awesome powers. The TMD makes for some interesting moments, but should have been more elaborate. It's also a shame the game gets far too easy half way through. Still Singularity is a great pastime in these quiet periods.

    SimCity has the potential to become a true goliath in the city building-genre, but is still being bogged down by too many problems, like the randomness with which services are exchanged in a region or the idiocy with which working citizens drive to work. That the buildable surface is smaller than in previous installments didn’t bother us that much because there are enough devices that will let players put every bit of space to good use. It would help though, if the intercity cooperation and chaotic traffic would be improved with a patch.

    The developer should have called Puzzle Kingdoms Puzzle Quest 1.2. It doesn’t improve much compared to the original, but it is entertaining and that is what it is all about.

    Ubisoft tries to create a sense of greatness, but the technical flaws keep this game from really doing so. This is a tremendous let-down, as the tougher fighting system, the extended missions and the co-op multiplayer experience are all great assets to the franchise.

    Rat Assassin is a simple game that manages to keep you entertained for a while, but misses the charm and depth of a similar game like Fruit Ninja. It's fun for a while, but never more than that.

    This original hand drawn puzzle-platformer will not make things easy for you, but the charm is in the challenge. The dynamic magnet mechanics keep the game interesting all the way through. It can be hard to stay motivated, as the tiniest decision can make you fall down many stories, meaning you have to walk back the whole darn way.
