    Four great games presented in full HD and 60 fps. Add tons of multiplayer options and interesting bonus content, like the TV-show Nightfall. Unfortunately you also have to add some jarring technical issues and an online mode that barley works – and even if it did it’s missing some important options like the ability to play Halo CE maps only. Halo: The Master Chief Collection should be a fantastic collection, but at the moment it just isn’t.

    This was supposed to be the game that convinced core gamers that the Wii is still a platform to be reckoned with. Unfortunately that's not the case since this is really not a great game for whomever the target audience might be. There is a vast collection of mini games that make out the core gameplay and since most of these are of poor quality the overall experience can't be saved by the few good ones in here.

    Haze is neither a bad game nor broken or unplayable. On the contrary, there are a lot of competent features to be found in this game. The problem with Haze is that it never stands out, it never delivers anything out of the ordinary. Four player co-op and some decent multiplayer-modes saves Haze from being a mediocre game.

    With the success of the first game you'd think that Pandemic would easily concoct a winning formula for the sequel to the first Mercenaries. Alas, that's not the case and Mercenaries 2: World in Flames feels surprisingly ancient for a game released on the current generation of consoles. Granted, wreaking havoc with a friend in co-op is a lot of fun, but if you plan to play on your own you're better off playing the PS2/Xbox-original.

    The theme and the design is impressive, but everything else The Saboteur does have already been done better in other, similar games.

    The big blockbuster feature of Fracture is the ability to alter the terrain, creating new ways to traverse levels and approach combat. At least that's what Lucasarts aimed for, but the truth is that the result is merely the same old formula we're used to coupled with a new tool that doesn't really change things for the better. Add to this a horrendously stupid AI, a lackluster online mode and an extremely linear story and what you end up with is a title that's decent at best.

    As a fusion between platforming and puzzles, this is definitively a pleasant title. Unfortunately the developers haven't given the game the second level of polish you'd expect from a retail game. Controls, graphics and gameplay all do their job but never stand out compared to competing titles.

    Family Ski offers exactly what you might expect out of a title like this, but there is precious little to be impressed by. The controls are actually the best offering in this title, but the lack of content and overall lackluster production value makes this a questionable purchase.

    Baja: Edge of Control does have some things going for it. Great handling, great courses and tight racing brings a lot to the table. Unfortunately it lacks the edge it needs to stand out from it's competitors. The attitude is pale, the career mode is way to shallow and somewhere down the road it gets lost in the dust from it's competitors.

    Zubo is a turn based roleplaying game with music as it's theme. Although overly easy and child friendly it still offers a fun experience even for the seasoned gamers. As a quick and easy piece of entertainment, Zubo does deliver.

    If you look at Hawx from a feature standpoint, there is much to be found here. But despite impressive features such as co-op play, a great number of available fighter planes, fast paced action and an intuitive yet advanced control scheme this title never really becomes interesting. A weak story combined with oh so repetitive missions quickly erodes the lure from the feature sheet. And when the multiplayer mode only offers the same thing but with human opponents, the overall experience is a mediocre one.

    Track and field video games usually consist of endless button mashing, and this is no exception. Luckily most of the modes in this game demands some form of precision-based challenges as well as pure button mashing, making the experience at least a teeny bit varied. Unfortunately most of the challenges feel like they are up to chance rather than skill. This is a decent attempt at a track and field experience, nothing more.

    A simple hack n' slash-action title based upon a cool anime comic - a concept that could have led to an equally cool game. Unfortunately the experience is marred after only an hour or so into the game when numerous bugs and other issues related to an overall lack of polish starts to surface. There are some great moments in here though and it's a great shame that the developers didn't use their funds to do some final polish to the game instead of paying Samuel L Jackson to lend his voice to the game.

    If you mix together gameplay elements from Driver, Grand Theft Auto, Burnout and then throw some Vin Diesel in there the result is The Wheelman. An action filled experience where driving cars actually offers an entertaining experience during the somewhat repetitive missions. There is a total lack of storytelling in the game, and the sequences on foot are quite mediocre, but if you can look past this you'll be treated to a decent action experience.

    When Secret Agent Clank shows it's best sides, it really shines. There is a good portion of humour to be found here and a lot of what makes the Ratchet & Clank-games great is also present here. Unfortunately, Clank isn't capable of maintaining the same level of quality all the way through. It's a competent adventure, but Clank misses his trusty partner in crime.

    This game does a lot of things well and a few things wrong, but there's just something about this title that doesn't feel right. The presentation is great and the pace is fast, but the fights themselves just aren't interesting enough. It's not a bad game in any way and for short periods of time it can be quite entertaining. But with a lack of depth those periods of time grow few and far between fast.

    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.
