    As far as point-and-click adventures go, this is an decent title. Unfortunately the plot never manages to raise any interest. Graphics and controls do their job just fine, but if you've played the PC-version there is nothing new to be found here. This is mainly recommended for fans of the genre who haven't played the version for the PC.

    As one of the launch games for Nintendos download service WiiWare, My Life as a King is a great title. In small doses it's a lot of fun, but the formula grows tedious in the long run. Graphics-wise this game looks great, but it suffers from poor performance from time to time. Overall lack of depth reduces the grade for this otherwise great game.

    This is an odd combination of point and click gameplay with RPG-style battles. Even though the story and the dialogue is fun and true to the series, the developers have gone overboard with the amount of reading that has to be done to progress in the game, which ultimately makes the overall experience a bit tedious.

    With Web of Shadows developer Treyarch builds on top of the foundation they laid with Spiderman 3. As Spiderman the player is put in charge of saving the city from a state of decay. The substance that spawned Spideys arch nemesis Venom has run amok in the city with total chaos as a direct result. The premise of the game is interesting but a horrible game camera and an overall lackluster framing makes the experience passable at best.

    This game had the potential to bring the Star Ocean franchise back to the forefront of great Japanese RPGs. This potential has been hampered by an apparent lack of innovation and ambition on the developer's behalf. The battles rely on a really solid battle system that could have been truly engaging, had most of the other not been as horrendous. Dialogue in the game is embarrassingly bad, cinematic sequences are dull and bland and the voice acting performances are laughable. Patient gamers willing to overlook the major flaws will be treated to a decent adventure.

    This is a typical game of point and click, detailing the world of Rhodan and the angel-like Illochim. Some issues with graphics and dialogue mar what is otherwise quite a decent adventure. If you're not a fan of Perry Rhodan chance is that you won't find this game all that intriguing.

    In this latest expansion to EA:s virtual life simulator your Sims will experience life in an apartment. Having neighbours is practical for your everyday needs and earning your reputation adds an interesting flavor to the formula. You can also merge several computer controlled families with your own, but these additions still feel too meager for what you're paying. EA could definitely have done more with this package, but what is in here you'll find enjoyable.

    If you find joy in snooping around for hidden objects, this might be a game for you. If you like to solve clever puzzles and mysteries, this isn't a game for you. Despite it's name hinting otherwise, this isn't a game that challenges your ability to solve crimes. The fact that you can play with friends does help a bit, but the overall feeling is that this game is too easy and lacking when it comes to variation.

    As a shooter, Wolfenstein walks a path familiar to all those who have played shooters for the past couple of years. Everything from presentation to gameplay and plot do their job without really standing out. Wolfenstein isn't a bad game per se, it's actually quite a competent shooter, but one that doesn't really stand out in a genre that's currently filled to the brim with more exiting titles.

    This game can be seen as a hybrid between Call of Duty 4 and Gears of War 2, with tons of action but unfortunately also a lack of identity. Despite being a movie tie in the game actually has a greater focus on Casino Royale than Quantum of Solace, making the overall experience somewhat incoherent. A great multiplayer mode is the killer feature in a game that will have a hard time competing for our attention this fall.

    We would have loved to see Lips give Singstar a good run for it's money. Singstar as a series is in need of a good kick in the behind, but alas Lips is not the game to force any innovation in the genre. The major problem we have with Lips is that there are way to few modes and features, rendering the game useless for anything other than a simple karaoke experience.

    The third iteration of this lovable franchise makes it's way to the Wii, but not much has happened since the days on the Gamecube. There are few new features or content to be exited about this time around, but if you liked the previous games this is more of the same.

    If you can look beyond the fact that this game suffers from meager content, horrible controls and total lack of any challenge, this could actually offer your family a couple of hours of entertainment. But the fun doesn't last long and because of this we can't recommend anyone to pay full price for this experience.

    Madagascar offers what you'd expect from it - fun entertainment for the young ones. There's a lot of variation and the controls actually work really well, a not to common feat amongst movie tie in games. There are flaws to be found though, the game is far too short and the gameplay is a bit too simple. This isn't a game that will inspire you to play it through a second time, but the first time around will be pleasing enough.

    MySims Racing is a typical kart racer you've gotten to know and love(?) on Nintendo consoles - oddly shaped characters, colorful environments and boxes filled with weapons is what's offered on the menu. Some portions of the game is better than the genre behemoth Mario Kart but overall this is a lesser game. This is a competent alternative to the Nintendo franchise but if you're still enjoying your Mario Kart sessions there isn't all that much news or innovation to be found here.

    If you're a big fan of the Phantasy Star franchise you might find something to enjoy in this entry for the Nintendo DS, but for everyone else there are few interesting features to be found here. The ability to experience the adventure with friends online is the one saving grace that elevates this title from utter mediocrity.

    Seen as an entry level RTS, Lego Battles is a great game. It teaches the basics of resource management well and it never really becomes to complicated or stressful. This unfortunately also means that it won't peak your interest for long. After a while it will become overly simplified for anyone who's ever played strategy games before.

    Movie tie in games have had a long track record of really poor experiences, but this has begun to change recently and the Monsters vs. Aliens game is a pleasant example of this improvement. This experience is both fun an varied, and this very fact make the somewhat patchy presentation very unfortunate since it can make progression difficult at times. Despite this we can recommend this game to young and older gamers alike.

    The classic board game is converted to a digital format, literally. Even though there are three modes in total, of which one is faithful to the board game original and another offering online play, the concept hasn't been adapted enough to the console format. What we're offered here is an expensive and somewhat cumbersome digital version of the board game original.

    With the game based upon the movie bearing the same name we're hard pressed to actually connect the dots in the plot, the reason for this being that the plot is laid out so poorly it's virtually impossible to grasp. Instead of great narration the storytelling is based upon you being sent from area to area to destroy robots, which is actually surprisingly fun. Even though this is by no means a great game it will appeal to the younger audience looking for an action title with big robots in it.

    This is the first game to support Nintendo's new add-on Wii Motion Plus and the additional precision does benefit the game a whole lot. Without the add-on the controls are somewhat flimsy and imprecise, but with Motion Plus added in the mix the controls really feel natural and precise. Unfortunately there are still a whole lot of motions that aren't registered correctly, and the presentation isn't somewhat shoddy. Grand Slam Tennis is proof that Motion Plus does improve precision but it can't save a mediocre game.

    Demigod had a lot of potential and could have, with some minor tweaks, been a really great game. The is no introductory tutorial and since the game also lacks a single player portion this game will appeal only to the hardcore audience. But for experienced fans of real time strategy games there is a lot to be liked in this game.

    Wii Sports Resort is a mixed bag when it comes to value for money. If you already own a number of Wiimotes this will give you a really entertaining experience with friends and family. Most of the new minigames are really entertaining and the revamped ones have been greatly improved. The Wii Motion Plus does improve the overall feeling a lot, but since it remedies past shortcomings that's more of a necessity than a strength. As a whole this is definitely not entertaining enough to warrant multiple purchases to get the Wii Motion Plus but if you already own the controls you'll find a lot to like here.

    It contains a very competent and entertaining fighting mechanic and appealing graphics. But the content is extremely limited with only 20 characters, no career mode, few alternative game modes and the online mode barely works.

    An easier, more slimmed down version of the Rock Band games that doesn't really benefit from the Lego brand. Only for those who think the song list is great.

    Secret Files 2 does come off to a good start when it comes to creating a likable atmosphere. Unfortunately the overall quality of the adventure is hampered by the constant swapping of environments. This leads to an all to splintered experience that fails to engage the player. The puzzles are far too often far fetches and challenging in the wrong ways. Add to this a mediocre plot and what you get is a decent game that lacks any real selling points.

    A game that follows the standard design of RPG’s. Characters and story are recognizable while the combat system makes the game worth trying if you like the genre.

    The game uses the Wii control in a creative way and is just as cute and cozy as Spore should be. But since you can’t share your creatures online and due to some game mechanics that repeats themselves over and over again this game isn’t as fun as its big brother on PC.

    When Aliens vs. Predator is at it's best it actually does capture the essence of the movie franchise. But for the most part this feels like an obsolete title that should have been released three or four years ago. Antiquated game play mechanics, underwhelming presentation, repetitive campaign scenarios and horribly unbalanced online multiplayer are just some of the issues that makes this one of the big disappointments of 2010.

    The latest entry in the Crystal Chronicles franchise does away with a lot of the role playing elements of previous entries in favor of a more action oriented style of exploration where interaction with the environments and combat is handled by motion based Wii controls. Adventuring is entertaining enough but far too many issues with the motion based controls hampers an otherwise decent action adventure game.
