    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    MotoGP 13 is a racing game in the vein of realism. Finishing a race is itself a great challenge and winning even more so. The challenge along with a superb driving feel creates a game of great rewards and enjoyment. Even though the lack of content is surprising MotoGP will still give great entertainment for simulator junkies and racing fans.

    By telling five different shorter stories Talltale manages to accelerate the pace of the The Walking Dead series. It has its complications but mostly feels fresh and exciting. 400 Days may not be as well written or as emotionally resonant as the episodes in season one but as an appetizer for the upcoming second season it works very well.

    The new version of Magic manages to capture the essence of its analogue original. Fast paced battles with plenty of room for strategy and modifications of your deck. Too bad it is not as mechanically deep or varied to work as a full-blown substitute. Still strongly recommended for beginners.

    The 16 mini games included in Game & Wario wants to show of what the Wii U controller is capable of. For the most part it doesn’t really work. There are some bright spots but for the most part the mini games feel rather familiar. That said Game & Wario is still entertaining, humorous and wacky. But it is not in any way a revolution.

    Thunder Wolves is a fresh breath of air in a rather boring genre. With it’s nostalgic flirtation the game doesn’t make a big deal of being over the top, silly or corny. And even though the length is rather short Thunder Wolves delivers an experience of pure joy in a way more action games should dare to do.

    It is not too shabby to be a major. Animal Crossing New Leaf continues the series tradition of being as charming as it is relaxing. The repetitive nature of the tasks in the game has an allure that somehow never gets old. Fans will of course feel right at home and welcome the occasional tweaks and news the game has to offer. It’s just too bad that New Leaf while being a game with lots of content still offers very few surprises.

    Diggs Nightcrawler is a successful mix of video game and cartoon. The augmented reality works splendidly and is both novel and exciting. The adventure is in itself short and somewhat repetitive. The lower price still makes it a great buy for younger wannabe detectives.

    Castlestorm mixes action and strategy in a tower defense game reminiscent of both roleplaying games, Warcraft and Angry Birds. It’s a mix that is sometimes messy, oftentimes fun and with unexpected amounts of depth and variety in its mechanics.

    The second entry in the Sanctum series continues exploring the odd mix of tower defense and first person shooter. The mechanics in the sequel are solid if a bit too simple to invite a deeper engagement. Still as a co-op game it excels in places that few games do.

    Metro Last Light improves on several of the originals shortcomings but also has a few of its own. Mainly the artificial intelligence needs lots of work otherwise Metro Last Light with its hybrid of quality action and engaging storytelling would maybe have been one of the best games of the year.

    Sonic Lost World has its problems. The controls are imprecise and the difficulty somewhat uneven. But it is still one of the better Sonic games in later years with some great level design. It is not the best platform game out there but well worth a closer look.

    Codemasters continues to deliver solid sequels that take small steps forward. The races and challenges are as rewarding here as ever but the classic mode is far too hollow to make a larger impression. F1 2013 is otherwise a solid and stuffed racing game but with little to offer owners of last years model.

    In this year's installment FIFA doesn’t take any larger leaps forward. It is still a polished football game for the dedicated fan base. And for the player who doesn’t want to play alone Ultimate Team is probably better than ever. But it is still too bad that EA hasn’t worked more on improving the core mechanics of the game.

    A lot of people complain that the big sports game series don't evolve enough over the years. But NHL 14 shows that they don't even have to do that. This entry in the series is riddled with bugs and the Hockey Ultimate Team mode has still not yet been figured out. Instead of a step forward it seems it chose to take two steps back.

    Shelter is a game about being a badger and strange as that may sound it is first and foremost a pleasant and beautiful little adventure. It doesn't really strive to anything majestic but it's still a great game for those who want something different.

    A Machine for Pigs is a well made and impressive game with a thorough thematic design and atmosphere. As a horror game it is rather spartan yet brilliant in that it let’s your brain conjure most of its horrors. Unfortunately it comes with a rather numbing effect that makes later parts of the game feel more formulaic and not as scary.

    Rivals keeps going in the same direction as Criterion's Most Wanted and Hot Pursuit. Meaning it’s an arcade racer in an open-world setting. Unfortunately the setting isn’t as fun and the police chases are more tedious than exciting. Aside from that Ghosts shows promise for the future of the series.

    The Lego games have always been solid but never more than that. The tradition keeps going with Marvel Super Heroes. It’s charming and entertaining but also kind of monotonous. But if you like Marvel and good co-op you can do much worse than this.

    Gran Turismo 6 is a Gran Turismo XL, for better and worse. The core concept with gathering cars is still great fun and at the same time the amount of time you have to put into the game is poorly managed.

    Resogun might not be the most amazing game released alongside the Playstation 4, but its intense gameplay still makes it a good one. The levels are few but great in design and fun. It’s not as great as Housemarque's title Super Stardust HD but good enough for a couple of hours of entertainment.

    Everybody probably doesn’t love grindhouse humour and rail shooters in 2013. But there is no game like Typing of the Dead: Overkill. Together with the upcoming co-op mode it might be a future cult classic.

    In many ways Tearaway is a charming, fun and unique platform game. The use of Media Molecules world of paper feels fresh and different but also comes with a fair share of frustration. And not in the way of a challenge. In all a solid platformer worth the money.

    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.

    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.
