    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.

    To grade a game like this is as difficult as it is irrelevant. The appeal of this game is solely based upon you personal preferences in games. If you're into fast paced action games this not a title for you. If you're into intricate battles and spending obscene amounts of hours collecting loot this is definitely well spent money on your behalf. Played solo this is passable but when played in multiplayer with friends this is as close to a portable MMO as you'll get.

    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.

    This is a great 2D fighting experience for the DS. With impressive graphics and entertaining super moves this is definitely something that Bleach fans will enjoy. There are few new features to be found here when compared to the predecessor though. A multiplayer mode that only requires one cartridge is a big plus for the experience.

    Basically a Singstar game with rap. The scoring system in the game is surprisingly good and the game has some really good songs, even though some are crap. It's a little short on game modes and the carreer mode is finished in an evening, but if you like hip-hop, Rapstar is going to be a blast.

    When playing Pokémon Platinum it's almost embarrassing to see how minuscule the changes or additions are when compared to the previous entries Diamond and Pearl. But despite the lackluster list of new features we can't protest that this is still a very deep and engaging adventure with tons of hours for those who simply got to catch em' all. The story is somewhat pointless and the roster of missions often turn into a trudge, but for those that didn't experience Pokémon Diamond/Pearl this is still a very worthwhile purchase.

    The Payday series has the potential of becoming a huge multiplayer franchise if they had a better online function and support for mods. With Payday 2 the developer Overkill takes another step towards the goal of online domination and delivers one of this years best co-op games. Unfortunately the low budget is rather noticeable.

    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 prequel to the original Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl adds great graphics, great sense of exploration and lots of content. It's definitely a better game than it's predecessor, trouble is though that it lacks polish. There are tons of bugs to be found here and mission objectives are often unclear and repetitive. It's a great game though and could be improved with future patches.

    Since X-Men Origins: Wolverine is all about combat it's fortunate that the combat is both fun and intuitive. Unfortunately there is an abundance in recycled content and there are a couple of areas in the game that needs polish. But at the end of the day this is still a fun action game well worth your attention.

    This is yet another modern adventure game that's competent without offering anything out of the ordinary. The environments provide a great framing for the experience and the vampire hunter Van Helsing isn't difficult to like. There is a great wealth of challenging puzzles, as there should be. If you're a fan of vampires and the puzzle solving adventure genre you should definitely take a closer look.

    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.

    Sniper Elite 3 is a fun but somewhat flawed game. Thanks to open levels it’s possible to decide your own path to the target, and whether you want to get there by shooting every enemy or just sneak past them. An entertaining experience that’s better than it should be.

    Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons invites you to a classic fairy tale, with two brothers searching for the cure to their fathers illness. The story is somewhat too mundane to reach emotional depth, even if it still is a nice one. The best part of the game is instead the mechanics of controlling both brothers with different analog sticks.

    Initially, Binary Domain doesn't look like much. But it grows with the experience, delivering a great story and top notch action.

    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.

    Shadowrun Returns will probably please most fans if perhaps not blow anyone out of the water. The campaign is well written and serves as a good introduction for new players. The variety in combat and character creation and dialogue options is great but suffers from a badly implemented autosave system. With lots of new campaigns on the horizon Shadowrun Returns is well worth keeping an eye on.

    A wonderful gaming world with lots of content, but also a lot of bugs, control issues, very time consuming, boring characters, too much looking at a loading screen and a lackluster story. Instead of fixing what was broken Ubisoft have just added more content.

    Well made Diablo clone that does almost everything right except bringing a co-op mode. Gets a little repetitive after a while.

    A very big sand box action game with lots of side missions and great atmosphere but with too much reused content from Yakuza 3.

    In its finest moments Stealth Inc is one the best games in the stealth genre. Unfortunately the level design is sometimes lacking and towards the end the game it becomes more about frustration than about entertainment. With all things considered it's worth a closer look if you are connoisseur of the sneaking genre.

    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.

    This is definitely not a tennis game you'll master in an afternoon, but once you've invested enough time to come to grips with the gameplay you'll be awarded with a great tennis experience. A nice career mode and an equally nice online mode makes this a great package for all those interested in the genre. If you want an arcade experience, Virtua Tennis is more you cup of tee. If you want a more challenging experience, this is for you.

    A relaxing adventure game that's a bit too much like De blob. The camera, repetition, time limit and save system are the major flaws.

    Motorstorm Arctic Edge is a beautiful, entertaining and challenging. The presentation is phenomenal and the actual racing is as exiting and it is entertaining, but somewhat shoddy controls and strange physics are two issues that keeps this title from earning our highest praise.

    Pick up crates, get weapons and use them to kill enemies - Super Crate Box is one of those games that are easy to learn but hard to master. It's a good game, but the controls worked better in the PC and Mac versions.

    In Final Fantasy XIII-2, a lot of what was wrong with Final Fantasy XIII has been repaired and improved upon. Everything is not perfect - the soundtrack, loading times and animations could use some more work, but overall Final Fantasy XIII-2 shows that Square Enix still knows how to make great games.

    Yet another easygoing simulator from Kairosoft, Pocket League Story is all about managing a soccer team. Addictive as usual, but it gets somewhat tedious after a while due to lack of variation.
