    As the first game for the Wii that demands the use of controller peripheral Wii Motion Plus we're surprised by the lack of actual 1-to-1 movement. Instead we're treated to a control scheme that allows you to swipe in eight different directions. The combination of gun and sword combat does make up for truly entertaining combat, but all this is for naught since the storyline and it's missions are an utter drag. Still, this is the best use of the Wii controller in an action title yet.

    While boasting an impressively large array of vehicle and a refreshing sense of strategic depth, Blur's uninteresting graphics and less than satisfactory controls puts this potentially exhilarating game at a disadvantage at a time when there are so many other racers on the market.

    As a translation of a peripheral based game to a button based portable game this is without a doubt a great experience. The concept of playing different instruments in sections to clear the tracks actually works really well and the formula in the stationary Rock Band games has been well translated to the portable format. If you're looking for a portable rhythm based music game on the PSP this is definitely a recommended purchase. There are some stains on the canvas though: only 41 tracks, no multiplayer and no interoperability with the PS3.

    A spinoff from the original game series that fills some of the gaps in the story between the first and second game. For those who longed for a continuation.

    Another Code R is a game filled with great atmosphere and laid back entertainment. The control scheme is well adapted for the Wii and the same can be said for the presentation. We do have some major gripes with this game though. Dialogue sequences are often far too long and tedious and the puzzles are few and far in between. With some minor alterations this could have been a fantastic game, instead it's only a good one.

    At first glance one might think of Trine as a visually appealing 2D side-scrolling adventure, and while that impression certainly is correct, the real gist of the matter lies withing the physics and puzzle based gameplay elements. In order make your way through the game, either by yourself or with up to two friends, you'll have to utilize the individual abilities of the three main character classes in order to succeed.The concept doesn't stay fresh all the way through, but this is still a great 2D adventure and co-op experience we recommend to one and all.

    Madballs in Babo is as the name implies a quirky arcade shooting game. It doesn't bring anything really new to the table, and what's offered is in no way innovative or especially impressive. But if you're in the market for an oddball shooter, this title will entertain, if only for a little while.

    Team up with three AI characters or friends and fight your way through hordes of enemies while you level up your characters. The foundation is good enough to be entertaining even though it’s ugly, uninspiring and limited. Though the game contains a lot of faults and feels like it has been rushed together, I still return to it when I want to play something easy accessible with a couple of friends.

    The fundamental principles behind the gameplay and strategy in Fat Princess are quite ingenious: take up to 32 players and divide them into two teams. Let the members of these teams assume one of four classes (mage, warrior, worker, priest) and then let them use the unique characteristics of their chosen class to either infiltrate the enemy base to steal their princess or defend the home base. It's an addictive and thoroughly pleasing experience, if you find the proper teammates that is. Fat Princess ranges from a decent to a fantastic online experience.

    This is a title that does a whole lot right but never really manages to stand out from the crowd. The controls feel right, there are plenty of race types and vehicles and the online mode does it's job well enough. If you're a fan of moto cross you'll definitely find plenty to like here.

    The third installment in the strategy franchise Hearts of Iron is, like it's two predecessors, a game made for the hardcore strategy enthusiasts. This is about as heavy as it gets when it comes to strategy depth, and if you're a member of the intended audience you won't be disappointed.

    Driving in Supercar Challenge is both fun and very challenging on higher difficulties. There is a lot of joy for racing enthusiasts to be found here but with an extremely repetitive career mode, very few cars and with no possibilities of modifying the cars confines the experience. The environment isn’t impressive but the cars and weather effects create an intensive racing atmosphere. In the end the game fails to engage the player, but delivers a great driving experience.

    It opens up new ground for puzzle games as it forces you to think what item is needed to solve the puzzle and then to conjure it by writing the word in-game. There are some problems with the control and some people may find the levels repetitive even with all the variation that comes with the right imagination.

    No advanced training routines but instead small and simple exercises that slowly improves your strength and balance. It contains a couple of new and entertaining mini games and some new features that makes good sense.

    A step back to the old Prince of Persia trilogy, The Forgotten Sands offers disturbingly few new features for a game in a series that experienced a slight revolution not long ago. Even so, there is something captivating about this latest addition to the franchise. If you are a fan of the older trilogy, it may well be worth the money.

    As a flight game from developer Project Aces of Ace Combat fame there are many reasons as to why this could have been a competent flight game for the Wii. Unfortunately you'll get a limited amount of hours out of this game and the motion based controls don't do anything to improve the experience. Add to this a confusing storyline and presentation that's decent at best and you get an overall experience that'll leave you unfulfilled.

    Napoleon: Total War is a massive strategy game where you'll get the opportunity to wage war in the pursuit of spreading your empire. It's not all rosy though. The battles can be cumbersome to micromanage and the game is hampered by the need to be historically correct. Nevertheless, this is another competent entry in the Total War franchise.

    This is very much the tried and true j-rpg formula we've experienced for the better part of a decade. Had it not been for the ability to experience the adventure with friends online there would be nothing unique about this package at all. That said, when experienced via the online features this is definitely a game worth checking out.

    If you're in the market for an easy going adventure game free from all the stress of modern day games Endless Ocean 2 is the game for you. Although a nice change of pace this also represents one of the major flaws in this title. You're never really challenged at all and the game's plot is weak at best. If you're looking for a relaxing experience this is the game for you, everyone else would do best to pass this one by.

    The Whispered World is beyond anything else a beautifully crafted adventure game of the old school formula. It's an utter joy to explore the world that, aside from beautiful artwork, is filled with both easy and challenging puzzles. But all of these wonderful components are dragged down by the god awful voice acting too horrendous to overlook. It's a shame since this is in every other aspect a great piece of entertainment.

    Though it's easy to dismiss a new Sonic game at this point we were surprised to see that Sonic's first noteworthy title in a long time is a kart racing game. Even though there are some issues with vehicles getting stuck in the environments and the online experience being somewhat limited when it comes to content this is still a highly entertaining kart racer easily on par with main competing franchise Mario Kart.

    The charming and challenging puzzles of this downloadable title are great, at first. The challenge quickly goes from motivational to simply frustrating. Although the music is fantastic, the puzzles are clever and the presentation is tasteful the overall experience is dampened a bit by the frustrating nature of the challenge.

    An excellent World Cup atmosphere with polished FIFA 10 gameplay - it's just a shame that 2010 FIFA World Cup is so shallow. It's got the looks, but not the longevity.

    The first downloadable content (DLC) for Assassin's Creed 2 was anything but spectacular. Luckily round two fares a whole lot better. Bonfire of the Vanities shifts from the combat oriented nature of the first DLC towards more focus on stealth and assassinations. Successfully assassinating your targets using stealth techniques is rewarding and makes the content, although short, very enjoyable.

    Despite being a short puzzle adventure on the easy side this is a perfect example of playful game design that rubs off on the player. If you're in any way in touch with your inner child this is a well crafted and beautifully realized experience you'll love.

    Resonance of Fate features an impressive combat system requiring good nerves and strategic thinking, but is found wanting in other areas. The weak story and equally weak mission design inevitably lead to the conclusion that not all aspects of this game have been designed with as much care as the combat system. A few careful steps forward - one leap backwards.

    Content wise, this latest entry in the MotoGP franchise doesn't disappoint. The visuals do their job without standing out, and the balance between an arcade and realistic racing game is a good one. That being said, this is not for the hardcore simulator fans. MotoGP 09/10 is an enjoyable and competent racing game that doesn't stand out from the crowd.

    Wario is at it again and this time he'll be your ally in creating your own entertainment in the form of minigames. The process of creating and sharing these micro experiences is easy and quick, but the miniature format of these experiences can also become a bit repetitive in the long run. If you're a creative person you'll have plenty of tools to keep you busy in this package.

    As a card game experience on a portable system this is a great title. The campaign mode is interesting, there is an in-game card store that's fun to explore, you can experience the game online and the process of playing with cards is handled well. If you can round up some friends to play with you can raise the grade one notch.

    This is a strategy game of the more intricate kind, which for you means heavy on the tactics and less in the way of action. Coupled with the fact that the game lacks a proper tutorial you'll be left in the dark about the game's mechanic's, leading to a unnecessary and annoying trial and error approach to learning the game's ins and outs. If you're a die hard strategy nut and willing to invest some time in mastering the game there is much to enjoy here.
