    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.

    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.

    A quick fighting game that is easy to get into and doesn't require the player to memorize very much to be good. The Playstation 4-version has a graphics overhaul with higher resolution and better anti-aliasing, but aside from that there is nothing new.

    Stoic has been successful with its tactical role-playing game. The viking theme and graphic design is a breath of fresh air, while the animations and the combat system could have been a bit more varied. Expect a text heavy and challenging experience where most of the role playing consists of your choices in dialogues which then affects the plot.

    Broken Age is in many ways an amazing adventure. It offers a unique style and has dialogues which in most cases are of very high class. Unfortunately, the story fails to engage to the point that you have to play on, which is a problem considering that this is only the first of two parts. In combination with a gameplay mechanic suffering from lack of new ideas, the game fails to climb higher on the rating scale. But for the genre buff, there is no reason to keep the pennies.

    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.

    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.

    An excellent expansion and almost a must for those who appreciated Shadowrun: Returns. Action, atmosphere and environments contribute to a more engaging experience. Some of the most glaring misses from the predecessor has been fixed, but there are still some flaws. The text-heavy arrangement requires much of the player, but the reward is even greater for those who want to go deep in the world of Shadow Run.

    Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is still an enjoyable adventure, mostly for those who played it back in the days. But even new players that are interested in the history of Final Fantasy can find some interesting mechanics here. The battle system is still intuitive and Spira is in all way as beautiful as ever. Even if the differences between the original and the remastered version can seem a bit small at first they become obvious in a direct comparison.

    Elder Scrolls Online presents an honest attempt to freshen up the MMO genre. It wants to offer fans a pure Elder Scrolls experience with a focus on story and characters, but with its fairly sloppy multiplayer mechanics the game gets a bit boring. Despite quite a few good ideas, Elder Scrolls Online sadly fails at several points. It's still a game that will really speak to a variety of players though.

    Hitman Go is an exciting transformation of the original concept. It's both thrilling and amusing to assassinate through a Ludo like structure. The problem solving is often advanced, but on a few occasions it's very rudimentary. Luckily one doesn't necessarily remember those scenarios. All this, combined with the game's delightful design, is why Hitman Go is a great game.

    Lego: The Hobbit offers a charming adventure that actually tries to breathe some new air into the Lego franchise. Unfortunately some of the new additions don’t work very well, and it’s a shame that the big open world isn’t used in a more meaningful way.

    Solid online modes and addictive gameplay makes Mario Golf: World Tour an easy recommendation. But a poor career mode with an unnecessary focus on the boring Mii characters keeps the game from achieving true greatness.

    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.
