    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.

    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.
