    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is not a revolution in movie based games, but it is not a bad effort. It is entertaining to go wild with the Transformers and we love the chaos. However, the game is repetitive and the story isn’t very long.

    PES 2010 forgets to innovate, which is especially disappointing considering that defending is as difficult as it was in previous years due to a lack of real control. However, the game has it’s moments of brilliance when you’re on the attack, which saves it from a sub-par grade.

    Silent Hunter 5 is another decent game in the series with a few problems here and there. Especially the incomplete tutorial, the loading times and the lack of polish in some area’s are annoying. On the other hand, this game is so packed with content that you are guaranteed to be busy until Silent Hunter 6 comes out.

    Pro Cycling Manager 2010 isn't the best game of the series. It brings little new features to the table, the technical problems of the last games are still there and little effort was put into the database. But at the same time this is a game that will be loved by all cycling fans. Though next year the series really has to make a step forward!

    Everything in this game has been done before, and has been done better. Not having split screen co-op is unforgivable; Inversion seems to be made for playing it with another player next to you. A lot of variation makes the single player experience somewhat decent, but never rises above mediocrity.

    After finishing Papa & Yo, we were left with mixed feelings. The game offers a unique emotional experience through the creative fantasy world of Quico, accompanied by great music. But the platforming and puzzling never really gets challenging and the game is filled with bugs and technical issues. This makes Papa & Yo an unique game, but not the game it amazing game it could have been.

    Medal of Honor: Warfighter doesn't live up to its expectations. The single player features six hours of shooting dumb and scripted enemies. Only the chase through Dubai will linger in your mind after you finish the game. The multiplayer has improved thanks to the addition of fire teams, but the indestructibility of environments and a boring unlock system make sure the multiplayer won't rob you of your night's rest.

    Cargo Commander has a special and original setting and some truly creative moments. But the drag sets in way too early and the many bugs and glitches don't make the game anymore fun.

    Fifa 13 on the Wii U is a fine game of soccer with enough teams, competitions and modes to keep you busy for months. It is, however, an inferior version compared to Fifa 13 on other platforms. Important modes like Match Day and Ultimate Team are missing and the Manager Mode has been downgraded. The game has a stuttering framerate from time to time and the GamePad doesn't provide any unique features.

    Puddle is a decent game with enough variation and challenge, but is too slow to ever really get exciting and uses too much trial and error. This makes the game more frustrating than fun.

    Dead Space 3 has moments in which it is just as exciting and tense as its predecessor and new additions, such as crafting your own weapons, are great. However, the boring human enemies, repetitive encounters with the necromorph, a weak story and the feeling that the game has been stretched, make sure that this trilogy ending doesn’t stack up to the first and second Dead Space.

    It’s fun for a few hours, in which chaotic gunfights, funny weapons and a couple creative moments manage to get your attention. However, the game is too shallow to keep your attention for long. Just like its big brother Serious Sam Double D XXL is corny, simple fun, but never anything more.

    On the one side it's a fast-paced, pretty, turn-based Pokémon game filled with random dungeons that provide many hours of entertainment. On the other side though, is has a dull story, stacked with uninteresting conventions that can't be skipped. Because of this, Gates of Infinity is a less serious, and even somewhat childish successor to its predecessors.

    Accessible to all and existing of simplistic gameplay limited to bashing the A button. A lack of story, variety and ability to train your Pokémon, make sure the game never evolves beyond a mediocre, yet sometimes enjoyable, party game.

    Despite the interesting combo system, Killer Instinct offers too little at the moment. There isn't enough of anything, let alone characters, even though it is a blast from the past to rediscover those. If Killer Instinct ever gets 'more', it might find its way back to the top of the fighting game ranks.

    Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD goes far on the scale of Bear Grylis, but doesn’t go far enough when it comes to survival techniques. It’s cool how the ground shakes and paw prints stay visible, but with a wind, sound and sight meter it’s all too simple. The dinosaurs animations are also laughably bad.

    Lightning Returns tries to restore the honor of the Final Fantasy franchise as well as being an RPG with modern design sensibilities. Unfortunately, it succeeds in neither. Final Fantasy gameplay elements drown in a mishmash of poor game design and forced choices. This third XIII does have its own charm though. Touching music and the still present FF-magic make Lightning Returns an acceptable RPG.

    Deception IV: Blood Ties is a weird B-game that’s mostly going on its witty and sickening traps. It’s great when you manage to get one trap sprung, only to have the victim bounce to another, and another, and another. The bad AI is a detriment to its charm though.

    Age of Mythology: Extended Edition is an excellent strategy game in its core. The scanty treatment it got for this Extended Edition makes this pretty disappointing. A few additions and graphical updates don't justify the high price tag.

    Risen 3: Titan Lords is lucky that it has been released just before the big storm of RPG’s. If the game would’ve been around a little later, it wouldn’t have stood a chance. But aside from all that, Risen 3 isn’t a bad game. There’s lots to do and Piranha Bytes has tried to keep away as much as possible from the word ‘boredom’. Even though the game succeeds in that respect, there are still a lot of shortcomings that are unforgivable these days.

    Unfortunately The Pre-Sequel does not have the rich characters we expect in a Borderlands-game. Going through this adventure with Claptrap is very enjoyable, because of his jokes, but technically it could use some freshening up.

    F1 2014 does not have any exciting innovations, besides the changes that also happened in the actual teams in real life). The gameplay is flat, the game looks rushed and we can only hope Codemasters will put more effort in F1 2015.

    Sacred 2 doesn’t deliver, but I still had some fun with it. For a console fans it is pretty good RPG, but that is mostly because there aren’t many games like Sacred 2.

    The stylish presentation of Blue Dragon Plus cannot hide the fact that the game is disappointing. Especially the stupid movement patterns of your characters are terribly frustrating and turn the fighting into a chore. An imprecise control scheme makes tactical fighting almost impossible, causing Blue Dragon Plus to be a mediocre game experience.

    Codename Panzers: Cold War is a prime example of a ‘strategy light’ game. The balance between the different units isn’t that important. More important is how the player anticipates to changes in the environment. It’s the ultimate ‘appetizer game’, it’s edible, but it’s not as fulfilling as the main course.

    Guitar Hero: Smash Hits brings all the components of the last five Guitar Hero-games, but doesn’t bring enough big to be called Smash Hits. It is a step back on visuals compared to the other Guitar Hero-games. However, the songs are good, so that is the only reason the game don’t get a bad grade.
