    Tropico 5 is a well-made strategy game filled with humor. The gameplay works ok with a controller instead of keyboard and mouse, although some menus are unnecessarily cumbersome. The genre's true peaks are still found on the PC, but Tropico is a good choice if you want to play a more laid back yet challenging strategy game on your TV.

    The control issues of the original is gone with the Move Edition. With that - this is a great game for kids and adults with a soft spot for taking care of a cute animal.

    With the first Motorstorm we were amazed by the stunning graphics, spectacular crashes and the aggressive AI. With Pacific Rift we are treated to some great new environments and courses but the developer Evolution Studios hasn't really found their direction for this sequel. Four player co-op is great but the news here aren't enough to redeem uneven graphics, unpredictable crashes and lack of direction.

    This sequel does manage to do a couple of things right. The strategic elements are interesting, the sound is great and the way you overlook your influence in the different cities is implemented in an impressive way. Despite these great features the urge for spreading your influence never really takes off. Since both the presentation and gameplay feels dated you're better off waiting for upcoming gangster related games.

    Prince of Persia is reeks with atmosphere and appealing graphics, definitely one of the graphical highlights of the year. It's an easy going adventure where you utilize the ever so limber prince and the beautiful princess in order to traverse the courses and their obstacles. Fighting enemies certainly looks good, but they seldom turn out to be very exiting, a feeling that can be applied to the overall experience. This is a beautiful gaming experience but you won't find much in the way of excitement nor challenge.

    A great experience and one that stays true to the Magicka franchise. Not a lot has happened since last time though, and some minor issues keep the game from reaching the same levels as the original.

    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.

    The formula of Monster Hunter is still intact in the latest version. It is not a conventional role playing game with distinct leveling, it puts more emphasis on the progression of the player itself. Depending on one's preferences, the high difficulty is either entertaining or frustrating. The worthless camera will however make everyone unnecessarily angry.

    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.

    Recollection is a good looking collectible card game based on the popular Assassins Creed franchise. It is at its best in multiplayer games versus human opponents, but lacks some of the depth of i's competitors.

    N++
    When N + was released in 2008, it was very well received because of the cruel, yet fair difficulty. The concept is still intact in the sequel: extremely hard micro courses that demands nothing but perfection from the player. Over 2,000 tracks are available which is an impressive amount, however this is also the games biggest problem. The sense of repetition is palpable and it's relatively easy to get bored. The user-generated content show a creativity that makes it really easy to return. Again and again.

    Trine 2 is a fantasy platforming game that is the most fun in cooperation. It's short, but the design and the animations are extraordinary. One of the most beautiful games this year.

    NBA 2K14 introduces a deeper and more advanced steering, which is welcome for all of us who don’t manage the more tactic side of the game. Prostick is a great addition and NBA 2K14 is a game that grows the more you invest in it and the more you know about the sport.

    Sunless Sea is in many ways a real stunning adventure, that dare to be original. Unfortunately the pacing feels a bit slow, and the dialogues aren’t that existing. Still, it’s a good choice for the hardcore adventures, that seeks something new.

    Arkham Origins is a game with two sides. One is a well made game with good design in combat and stealth. The other side is a game that never gets out of the shadow of its predecessors. Batman fans should pay attention but that’s it.

    God of War 3 is still a spectacular and really good action game, but the remastering work here feels cheap to say the least.

    This year's edition is more streamlined and misses some of the more complicated and somewhat unnecessary features that has plagued the more recent editions. Instead, the core focus lies on finding players that fits efficient strategies. Sadly the interface is rather messy and the game is filled with bugs.

    Just like earlier titles Skylander Swap Force is firstly a well made platform game fitting for most age groups. It’s sorta simple and the level design is nothing special but the use of figures and creative thinking is great. Even though the solution to the games puzzles is sometimes obvious.

    Super Stardust Ultra is the third and best iteration of the Super Stardust series. It is not a big step up from the Playstation 3 version, but the improved controls, better 3d and some added game modes makes it worth a double-dip for fans. If you have not played it before you should give it a try now.

    Dragon Ball games have had a steady downward trend for several years now. But with Xenoverse the series makes a great debut on the new consoles, with fun and accessible battles. There is still plenty of room for improvements, but it is a good start nonetheless.

    To the dismay of fans everywhere, here’s another Singstar-title with no ambition to innovate. Being able to buy songs through your PSP is a nice nuance, but the new duet-mode is the one great feature in an otherwise familiar package. A set of great and fun songs saves this title from earning a really low grade.

    An open world street racer set in an interesting city. There's a lot of things to do, but they get pretty repetitive after a while. The autolog for online competition is brilliant though.

    The console version of The Sims 3 Pets makes use of its platform and delivers an experience with small changes suited for consoles. It is by no means bad, it's just that the PC version is better in most ways.

    NBA Jam is a fastpaced and entertaining take on the arcade basketball genre and it feels slick and well executed, but there's one problem. The game feels like a PSN or Xbox Live title with it's limited content.

    The Lego Movie Video Game offers a shorter campaign, fewer secrets and a more boring character gallery than usual. Despite this, it manages to still be one of the better Lego games from the TT factory thanks to the charm and the high pace. Seeing the movie first is strongly recommended though.

    Batman: Arkham Knight is the best looking game in the series so far, and includes a lot of cool stuff for fans of Batman. But at the same time it’s starting to feel like Rocksteady is almost too comfortable. It lacks new content, except the pretty bad designed Batmobile parts. If you haven’t played the previous games that much you will probably think that this is one of the best games this year.

    A smart and, at some times, very challenging puzzle platformer with neat-looking visuals and good music. Still, it's not very memorable in the long run.

    Very short flying game that still shines when it comes to control and entertainment value.

    Garden Warfare is an entertaining online games with inviting playability and unique design for a game in the genre. The tempo in both combat and how fast to unlock new material is very addictive. After a while you start it unfortunately feels a bit tedious, much because there are too few game modes and maps. As a whole, it is a game I can recommend though, especially considering that it is not sold at full price.

    A nice historic point and click adventure with a well balanced difficulty but a lack of originality.
