    Obviously, Sniper Elite V2 keeps trying in the same way as the first episode : seven years later, it shows the same qualities and makes the same mistakes. The shooting system is still very fun, almost addictive, and the fans will be glad to discover the new Kill Cam. But it's not enough to hide poor graphics, lack of a true narrative side and some new features of arguable quality. Its low price could however convince some of you to try the experience.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 delivers what it promised to do, meaning not much, but that fact alone is worth mentioning. Forget all about the big productions of the market, here we clearly are in another market share: Low Cost gaming. This Dacia of the videogame, once the buyer don't expect the full service, starts scoring points in the spirit of the fanatic of sniper games. If we cant consider recommending this game to the first gamer we meet, a real hardcore gamer fond of Sniper action might well like it. In the mean time, the gamer that does not want to pay the full price (70€) for a game that's so specialized in it's offering, could appreciate this games which is sold at a bargain price.

    WRC 4 looks a lot like those annualised soccer franchises. Very few evolutions, and nothing but new fills this 4th game of the series, which does not improve by aging. We feel that Milestone has given up, and has just done the bare minimum to keep the franchise alive and make payment for the WRC's rights. Made with no passion, this tasteless game will occupy the most dedicated fans for a few short moments before it's forgotten. Very poor gameplay and a lack of finish won't make many people happy about it. Too bad for the rallye game fans who will have to wait quite some time before they can find a worthy game. Until some new publisher get hold of the license?

    If we consider it as a fitness game or as a tech demo, Fighter Within can be interesting, but as a fighting games it's just hopeless. The characters are dull, the AI is horrendous, the solo is just a big tutorial, the Kinect nav in the menus works quite awfully and it's just a bit better in-game. In spite of this, the enjoyment of working you muscles for real is here, and the controller-less gameplay is functional if not very good. Actually as a fitness games, Fighter Within is not so bad.

    It's a good idea from NIS America to widen access to visual novels out of Japan, as long as they make good decisions. And they don't. The publisher has maybe chosen something too spooky for the Western players. Only translated in English, DanganRonpa : Trigger Happy Havoc definitely forgets some who don't want to play 30 hours like that. The others could be interested in the crazy story but it's far too slow. Players have to read lines and lines of discussion before reaching, at last, a gameplay scene. And don't expect the visuals, in bad taste, to enhanced this not so good assessment.

    As long as you don't start to play, the game seems to be fun, pretty and you can say to yourself that you're gonna spend some nights on it with your pals. But you will soon change your mind. Amongst the only six sports available, three are just good to go to the garbage because of the inaccuracy of the detection. And the others don't bring enough togetherness to be played for hours. At the end of the day, Kinect is far more enjoyable from your couch.

    Coming back from the dead, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor won't present a pleasant experience to the player yet with its gameplay handicapped by the use of Kinect. The game developed by From Software is simply not enjoyable to play, and never offers a moment when situations take fully advantage of the original features and the good work made on the general atmosphere.

    When studios like Project Aces are able to introduce us to innovative action flying games, others like Trickstar Games have some difficulties in proposing the same title. With its old-fashioned production and its boring gameplay mechanics, Damage Inc : Pacific Squadron WWII never takes off, the only action players will enjoy being the pleasure of counting the raindrops on their plane's windscreen.

    Far from what the Silent Hill saga was once before, Silent Hill : Book of Memories won't clearly satisfy the fans of the IP. The game won't please the hack'n'slash players either that will find the title boring, its gameplay repetitive and its level-design lacking of originality. Players that were looking for some comfort with the multiplayer mode can also forget that option.

    Rabbids Land is clearly the title that has been developed too quickly, with not enough resources to do justice to the Wii U. With its long animations and some mini-games that should have been more explored, Ubisoft's title lacks the interesting ideas that made the IP so successful in the past. A shame when you know the Rabbids universe could easily make you smile with their crazy jokes.

    Keiji Inafune and his pals got us there: we were expecting something big, and Yaiba Ninja Gaiden Z is just another insult to the beat'em all gender. Despite some diversity from one combo to another, the fights quickly become boring because of an out-of-age AI, amongst other faults. Mediocrity in the level design reinforces this very straightforward aspect of Yaiba, which is far from its ancestors from a technical point of view.

    As was expected, Star Trek: The Game is a bad attempt to take advantage of J.J. Abrams' movie, which will soon be on your screens. Not really nice to watch, Star Trek isn't really nice to play either. Using terribly old gameplay mechanics never made a good game, and it's not quite an accurate choice to give it some character. Even fans should avoid paying for this.

    Time is flying and Dragon Ball videogames are sinking into mediocrity. Battle of Z may be one of the worst episodes of the saga. It's hard to say though if the lack of experience at Artdink studios was the main problem, or if it comes from their will to make something different. Nice try, but the result is awful. You just can't make a Dragon Ball game and forget about the offline multiplayer! And even if you can overcome that, you'll land in an atrocious cocktail of blurry colors and unintelligible action. Your one and only solution : don't buy it.

    Aliens Colonial Marines is old-school, that's for sure. A little bit too much so, unfortunately. With three different developers and a several year delay, it was predictable... Graphs from 2005, AI from 1895 and poor story writing amount to a too-heavy burden. And you can't even compensate for that by being highly loyal to the movies. This game is just a waste - of time for the studios, of money for you.

    If Chuck Norris can count to infinity twice in less than two months, Ubisoft and Zootfly Studios clearly needed more time to offer a game as good as The Expendables 2 could be on screen. Because in the end, we are facing a boring title that offers an old-fashioned production and a game that's full of bugs, rough gameplay, a repetitive soundtrack and a ridiculously short game length that players won't enjoy in any way, shape or form.

    Sports Connection is the kind of game you won't find pleasure playing with. The different sports available are clearly unexciting, the game never fully use the GamePad, and the graphics are poor. The Wii MotionPlus requirement won't help either. A game to avoid purchasing.

    There are videogames, great licensed products and then there is The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. Coming out with the end of the third season of the series, Activision's game is just a tasteless merchandising product, quickly developed in an attempt to increase the financial income of the license. Everything is to be thrown away in this pitiful FPS that clearly shows the misunderstanding of the series by the development team. What's left is a very ugly game which is quite appalling for HD consoles nearing the end of their lives. Very repetitive, with no interest whatsoever, the game offers one of the worst AI's in the industry. Needless to say that after Telltales's brilliant games the quality drop is epic, and when a game's quality falls of the table, so does our grade.

    Rebellion gives only one thing for your 10 euros : the way to kill zombies. You kill them all the time, while moving, while waiting for a door to open, with some bigger ones from times to times, and do absolutely nothing else. Golden award for the most soporific gameplay ever, Sniper Elite : Nazi Zombie Army is simply boring to play, and should not appeal to any gamer thanks to an almost nonexistent content, ugly graphics and poor gameplay. Definitely a commercial trick as this content should not even be sufficient for a DLC. Anyway, we don't doubt that we'll be able to find that game for a couple of cents during the next Steam Sales if some masochists want to endure this experience.

    LocoCycle is a true turd, one of those games that shouldn't even exists and meanwhile makes the achievement of ripping gamers of 20 euros. Closer to a PS2 game in its graphics, the game is boring, scripted to the max, very short, repetitive and with gameplay that limits itself to spamming three buttons and doing a few QTE when asked. Only a few jokes will make the gamers abused by the ads smile, but the smile will quickly fade away as the scenario unfolds. A new milestone in the hall of shame of videogames has been set on the back of an Xbox One that really did not need that for its launch period.

    Our first contact with Rambo : The Videogame at the gamescom 2012 had already hinted us, but we would have never imagined a catastrophe of this magnitude. Rail shooter on drugs, Reef ENtertainment's title is simply unplayable, due to an aim lacking calibration, incomprehensively lame design choices (a full level with only QTE), shameful graphics worthy of the late 90's era, an extreme difficulty and an OSt that limits to a few looped themes. We are used to playing crappy games, but it's been long since we saw a turd of that caliber. Rambo The Videogame is a school case, a benchmark for what is to be avoided when making videogames, a true message to developers. At least it will have one purpose.
