    It's a bold move to change the destructive sand box gameplay of Guerrilla with this linear and claustrophobic experience, but Volition does a really good job. Just don't expect it to be Red Faction Guerrilla 2.

    Place Tetris blocks to form rectangles while building up the great soundtrack. Stressful and at the same time meditative.

    A classic JRPG with the usual pros and cons. Too much unnecessary running and cumbersome combat preparations but with two big adventures and smart combat. It's still worth the price for JRPG nuts.

    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.

    EA's latest skateboarding foray, Skate It, does a lot of things right and a lot of things wrong. The only part of the formula that truly impresses is the controls, everything else is limited by the technical limitations of the Wii. Skate It does share a lot of what made the original Skate great, but if you want the full experience you're better of with Skate for the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3.

    A nice try with The Sims in a new era with different game mechanics. Suffers from limited freedom and some bad design choices.

    Despite being quite shallow, internally as well as on the surface, this downloadable title still has some depth to it. Sure, there are few rules, modes and teams offered here, but the most important ingredient is in place. If you're in the mood for a fast paced arcade hockey experience there is tons of fun to be had here. It's not a game you'll be setting up tournaments in, but if you like some easy going hockey fun there are fun games to rival this one.

    Traveller's Tales did a good job with the first Lego Star Wars. Since then they've just pressed the "repeat" button with new licenses. It's still good, but lacks new ideas.

    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.

    This is a street racing game with a whole lot of style and soul than the competition. There are a few major flaws though and these are enough to lower the overall experience from tripple-A to simply pleasant. Games released by Rockstar are generally polished and slick productions, and this is no exception.

    It's one of the better handheld soccer games and the Master League mode is impressive, but it lacks content and the AI is problematic.

    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.

    Disc golf and bocce are the highlights in this collection of small sports games. A bit short on content but still the best Move game so far.

    A must buy if you like beat'em ups and have some friends to call over. Might even be worth your money playing it solo if you're into the genre, pixel graphics and Scott Pilgrim.

    Forza Motorsport 5 is an entertaining but bland experience. On one hand it impresses on the track with good visuals and fantastic handling. On the other hand it lacks content and the career mode is very dull outside of the races.

    Wet
    Wet is like a marriage of Max Payne and Prince of Persia, but without the great graphics and deep engaging gameplay. Even though this is just a concoction of mindless violence, foul language and stereotype Tarantino-esque attitude, we can't ignore the fact that it can actually be quite fun at times. If you're looking for an over the top action game, filled to the brim with cheesy attitude and stylized violence, this one fits the bill perfectly.

    A collection of mini games with controls that actually works great. After a few hours a lack of content might be noticed, but this game is one of the best implementation of the Playstation Move controller yet.

    While Epic Mickey struggles with a few camera problems, it's a great and kind of unique platformer. The mood is great, mixing both nostalgic disney with a little darker steampunk elements to create an interesting world with a truly good soundtrack and enviorments. You are also able to alter the story in the game in a way rarely seen in games like this.

    Aside from being a given purchase for fans of the Band this Green Day flavoured Rock Band edition is actually quite a nice package from everyone else as well. The main caveat is that Harmonix haven't really put in an effort to truly capture the look and animations of the real life band members, a feat they pulled of beautifully in The Beatles: Rock Band.

    Initially Octodad: Dadliest Catch is very entertaining and offers many laughs but the originality of the game does not quite last until the end due to some repetitive levels and frustrating game moments. However, thanks to a great script and charming characters Octodad: Dadliest Catch still remains a fun and different gaming experience.

    The "Lego Star Wars"-games were fun and entertaining with great co-op features. Unfortunately Lego Indiana Jones isn't as great, simply because fighting Germans isn’t as fun as battling Darth Vader, puzzle solving isn’t as fun this time around and the video sequences aren’t as funny. Despite being a lesser game, this is still a great gaming experience.

    Uefa Euro 2008 is probably EA’s best effort this far when it comes to soccer games. Gameplay on the field has been tweaked to an overall better flow and the Captian your country mode is really fun. Charging full price for a game that loses its relevance after the championships is the only major flaw in this otherwise great soccer experience.

    Massive and difficult, but rewarding for those who endure to master it. It's a bit more streamlined than its predecessors, but apart from that not much has changed. A bit too repetitive for its own good.

    With platforming games being somewhat of a rarity these days The Maw is a welcome addition to the Xbox Live library. The game is both charming and fun, especially the main character Maw. If you look beneath the charming surface you'll find quite an ordinary platforming adventure though. But with a reasonable price tag we can't but recommend this title for those in the mood for a new platforming experience.

    A rhythm platformer with a great focus on user created material. It has a nice minimalistic feel and playing to Beck's "Cities" is a great experience, but other than that Sound Shapes falls a little short.

    In this third iteration, Rare has morphed the platforming roots of Banjo-Kazooie into a racing game where player imagination is the main tool of the game. You build your own vehicles and in that process you decide how to tackle an obstacle. The main problem with this game is that a lot of the challenges simply aren't that much fun and there is too much emphasis on building vehicles. Nevertheless, this is a solid title.

    A good sequel that improves upon the original and does most things right. Sadly a couple of misses such as lack of checkpoints and clunky controls stands in the way of a higher grade.

    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.

    This title, as the name implies, offers you the chance to take the reins of a trading empire during the 17th century trading wars. You'll get to use diplomacy, trade and warfare as your tools in your quest for trade monopoly. The campaign mode is very meaty and will let you trade, wage war and use your strategic wit for hours on end. The only major drawbacks is the lack of land based warfare in the campaign mode and being limited to naval warfare only online. Nevertheless, this is a great game for trade junkies everywhere.

    As far as technical achievement and pure playfulness goes, this is a massive accomplishment for Avalanche Studios. If you're into blowing stuff up and wreaking havoc in a open free roaming environment, this is the game for you. If you're looking for a clever story driven experience, look elsewhere.
