    Pokémon Conquest is a successful experiment. The game successfully approaches the age-old concept of Pokémon in a new and unique way. Even though the game may seem simple at first, it soon turns out to be a game for aspiring tactical minds.

    This is a shooter that will make any bad mood fade away instantly. It does not matter if you'd rather play on the zombie side or the side of the flowers; both will offer fun new characters that will grant you many hours of multiplayer fun. The campaign is a bit short, so in a next game we would like to see more of that.

    This games makes us feel nostalgic about the genre and fairy tales in general. Even if we do not let the nostalgia get to us, this first episode is a very strong game. It has the vibe of big, forgotten adventures and we cannot wait for the second episode to release.

    This game uses Kinect as it was meant to be used: it is technically amazing, and it takes you to another world in which not your brain, but also your body plays a big part. The game is funny, the puzzles are smart and that makes the shortness of it a bit of a let-down, in a positive way though.

    Dishonored 2 is an amazing game. The things we did not like about the first one are gone, and the world is even bigger and more diverse than before.

    The Prince returns, and does so with a fresh new style, a phenomenal game world, and in stunning visual detail. The addition of Elika is a nice touch, but takes away some of the initial challenge in the game. The fact that you can’t die is a real shame, but the choreographical fighting mechanics keep the gameplay interesting and fun, and turn Prince of Persia into a small masterpiece.

    The Tomb of Sammun-Mak is a really fun episode. The switching between the movie reels adds an extra layer of depth to the puzzles and the story is a lot better than in the first episode. Sam & Max: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak gives promising prospect for the episodes to come.

    Napoleon: Total War is what Empire: Total War should have been. The bugs and freezes are gone, the loading times are strongly improved and the battles are very entertaining.

    Titanfall is an excellent addition to the shooter market. It plays like a dream and the maps all feel like playgrounds. The contrast between playing as a pilot and a Titan is pleasant, and provides the necessary variety. It could’ve used more modes though.

    Resogun is spectacular, beautiful and very easy to control. Who doesn't enjoy getter as high as possible high scores to compete with yourself, your friends and the rest of the world has nothing to go for with Resogun. It welcomes the new console in the best possible way though: with blazing action and hypnotizingly intense gameplay.

    Finally the first full adventure making use of Wii MotionPlus. Red Steel seems to breathe quality and is surprisingly deep. This is what action games should have been on the Wii since the beginning.

    Tekken is all about the multiplayer, especially if you play against a friend who knows the game well. The new fighters are bringing enough new material to learn and practice on you’re own. The functionalities around this aren’t that interesting. You can better leave the game alone if you’re not a multiplayer person. If you are a multiplayer person and you’re willing to put some hours into it, this game will be a pearl of a 3D fight game.

    Pokémon HeartGold/ SoulSilver is very good remake of the best Pokémon-game ever and brings a superb adventure.

    Chaos Rising is a good add-on. The story is strong, we like the choices you can make in the missions and there is even more variation in the missions then there was in the original Dawn of War II.

    Sony managed to rewrite the manual for party brawlers and has, despite minor faults, delivered a great fighting game. The super system works well and feels refreshing. With beautiful environments and unique fighting styles Battle Royale will entertain you for quite a while.

    In the end, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box is just a great game for those who haven't played the console versions. There's tons of cars to unlock, races to engage in and stunts to perform. Add to this the 'pick up and play' control mechanics and you've got yourself a great racing game that doesn't require mad driving skills and is just genuine fun.

    Child of Light is an enchantingly pretty, old-fashioned role playing game with a fun battle system, a beautiful graphical style and gorgeous music. Child of Light deserves your attention, even if you're not in to these kind of RPG's.

    Sound Shapes is a game you simply have to play to find out how good it really is. You can easily play a single number, but the game is also well suited for long play sessions filled with synergy between the music and the 2D platforming. The campaign may be a little short and the Death Mode is simply unfair, but the simple yet complete level editor makes up for this.

    More a game than ever. The dressed down Classic Mode and the playful challenges give the series a nice refresher, without losing the most important Football Manager qualities: depth and size.

    InFamous: First Light feels grand due to its small size. In a flash you’ll receive tremendous neon powers to cross the city with great speed. Though these powers are what makes First Light great, the rest of the game is not to be underestimated. The famous comic like cutscenes, a modest amount of collectibles and challenges and a special Battle Arena mode take First Light beyond just feeling like InFamous Light.

    By giving each car its separate missions, Need for Speed: Most Wanted introduces a fresh new way to experience open world racers. You will be pushed to use new vehicles, though it is a shame that unlocked upgrades are somewhat useless because of this.

    Halo 4 is a game with two sides. On the one hand 343 Studios hasn't managed to create a single player experience with a great story. And on top of that the musical presentation isn't what you'd expect it to be. The true magic of the game is to be found in the multiplayer mode. Through subtle changes, constant rewards through the Ordnance system and new gear, the multiplayer keeps you enthralled throughout. And should you be done with it, then there's still Spartan Ops.

    Mass Effect 3 Special Edition for the Wii U is a good game. The Mass Effect 3 experience was kept intact, but the new functionalities offered by the Wii U aren't anything special.

    I really enjoyed playing Left 4 Dead, and will continue to do so for many more hours. My only complaint is the slight lack of content and different gaming modes. The AI controller guarantees a certain level of variation in gameplay, but the playable levels and types of enemies remain the same. Content wise the game would score an 8, but Left 4 Dead packs enough fun to raise that score half a point.

    Luigi’s Mansion 2 is a special and well rounded adventure that delivers on graphics, atmosphere and humor. A good, eerie game with a cheerful tone. Great for cowards… but also challenging enough for the tougher gamer.

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 goes for gold with golden themed levels that bring simple, yet fun platforming action. It's not a punishment to play levels over and over again, finding all the secrets or trying to set a new record in Coin Rush. The addition of a compelling cooperative multiplayer experience makes New Super Mario Bros. 2 the best side-scrolling Mario-game to date.

    It is really hard not to fall in love with Unravel. The atmospheric, beautiful world is the perfect setting for an emotional story. There are a few hiccups when it comes to gameplay, but thanks to the quality of the adventure that is hardly noticeable.

    Grid 2 is a fantastic racing game in which you'll have to fight for a decent classification. There's no 'perfect line'-crap, but purely the battle. Because of this, a victory really feels like a victory. There's enough variation to keep you going, but the career mode seems a bit bleak. Because of that, it barely misses out on a 9 or higher.

    Despite a weak storyline, the new story mode makes Dance Central 3 more fun to play by yourself, although experienced dancers probably won't even touch the mode. The formula still stands firm, even recurring small irritations can't change that. Add the great Crew Throwdown mode for eight players to the mix and it's clear Dance Central has once again raised the bar.

    Reaper of souls is the perfect addition to Diablo 3 with loot 2.0. Loot feels less crappy, the Crusader is an interesting class – aside from the story – Act V is a pleasant experience. The strongest addition is the Adventure Mode though, that offers a whole new way to play.
