    Something as unusual as an entertaining movie license based on mini games.

    A Japanese rpg from Germany. Even with a couple of flaws, this game is a real treat. It's charming and the battles are challenging.

    Nothing new to the series but it's still a lot of fun to drift through the corners with great control.

    Really smart puzzle game with lots of ideas and an easy to use create-a-puzzle mode. A bit too similar to the last game, far too easy in the first hour and a bit repetitive in the end though.

    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.

    After a slow start Driveclub really opens things up and the feeling of ”just one more time” is never far away. Evolution Studios has managed to make a game that is as fun as it is good looking. Unfortunately, the lack of content is a bit disturbing.

    At first this seems like a perfectly suited title for XBLA. But despite a great first impression, a well crafted cooperative mode and attractive presentation you'll find some cracks in the facade after a few hours. Too few levels and a somewhat lacking sense of speed dampens what is otherwise one of the very best racing titles on XBLA.

    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.

    Time Crisis 4 is a great conversion from the arcade original to the console platforms, with minor additions to appease the new crowd. There are a lot of hours of play in this package and as long as you’re not expecting anything other than a classic Time Crisis experience you’ll find a healthy dose of intense action in this title.

    Harmonix have boldly stepped into the world of dancing-games and lived to see it through. The game looks good and the controls work nicely with learning you a variety of dances. But the game itself would have turned out much better with an improved multiplayer. It's supposed to be a party game, but the fact that you can only dance one at a time drags this game down.

    A slow paced and highly complex RTS with focus on ecology.

    If you're a big fan of the Lego based games before it, Lego Harry Potter will be just the thing for you. A well crafted and entertaining cooperative mode, lots of content, easy to pick up gameplay mechanics and tons of items to gather you won't be lacking things to do in this game.

    A great railshooter, with lots of unlockables and mini games.

    It’s a unique title in a lot of aspects. Instead of controlling one player you’re in control of the entire team at all times. It’s a system you’ll struggle with at times, but when you get a hang of it you’ll be awarded with an odd and equally enjoyable soccer experience unlike anything you’ve seen in a long time.

    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.

    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.

    Tekken Hybrid consists of a HD-remake of Tekken Tag Tournament, a demo of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and the full lenght movie Tekken Blood Vengance. Though Tekken Tag Tournament still holds out pretty good against modern fighting games, Tekken Hybrid as a whole is more for the hardcore Tekken fans.

    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 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.

    When it was announced that a western developer was to take over the reins from Team Silent there were many raised voices of concern about what would become of the series. Silent Hill Homecoming is actually a classic Silent Hill experience, a bit too classic to be honest, with the game's formula sticking very close to the old Silent Hill games. The graphical upgrade works great, lending design inspiration from the movie, and the music and sound is phenomenal. The plot is also told very well. The modernized combat system unfortunately eliminates the sense of respect and fear for the enemies, the main gripe we have with this otherwise great survival horror experience.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This is a title filled with repetitive moments. If plowing your field and watering your plants doesn't sound like tons of fun, this isn't a game for you. But if you like the Harvest Moon series this title does offer a whole lot of tinkering and interesting ideas. The addition of monsters on your farm, upgrading tools and weapons, interacting with other characters and exploring dungeons does expand the experience a whole lot. If you're into the whole life on a farm concept you should definitely give this one a try.

    As a flight game from developer Project Aces of Ace Combat fame there are many reasons as to why this could have been a competent flight game for the Wii. Unfortunately you'll get a limited amount of hours out of this game and the motion based controls don't do anything to improve the experience. Add to this a confusing storyline and presentation that's decent at best and you get an overall experience that'll leave you unfulfilled.

    This is as close to a realistic Ferrari experience you can get on a home console right now. Unfortunately the developers haven't focused enough on everything else which means that there isn't enough to be exited about apart from the Ferrari experience. The gameplay lacks variation and the multiplayer mode lacks depth. This is nevertheless a great driving experience that grows with your interest in Ferrari cars.

    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.

    Loads of content wrapped in an attractive presentation and multiplayer to boot, this is a game that’ll give ATV fans everywhere a lot of bang for their bucks. There are some flaws though, the vehicle physics is a bit dodgy and the learning curve for beginners is a bit steep. All in all, this is still a great game for those who desire portable ATV-action.

    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.
