    A collection with the sex Mega Man games for NES made available for the latest consoles is a great deed. The restoration has been cautious and the games are thus unchanged, which unfortunately means that the the flaws that existed 20 years ago persist today, like choppy frame rate when too many enemies are on the screen. A nice new feature is the challenge mode, which is insanely addictive. However, it feels stingy to not get a bigger collection, given that previous collections contained clearly more titles.

    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.

    All major box office movies must be accompanied with a movie tie-in game, and usually that leads to a less than poor gaming experience. Kung Fu Panda actually manages to steer clear of that trend by offering a great and fun action experience. For the seasoned gamer this is on the easy side, but for the intended age group this is a great offering.

    Galactic Adventures add a whole new dimension to the Spore experience. Now you can beam your creatures down to other planets where they can go on various missions. You can upgrade your hero with armor, weapons and social abilities. This combined with the ability to create your own adventures makes the Spore experience even more vast than ever before. Unfortunately the overall experience is heavily plagued by some really nasty bugs.

    It's a really beautiful game with lots of nice touches and a co-op mode that is great fun. But the level design is bumpy and the boss fights are crippled.

    Building on top of the creative concept of MySims and adding a flavor of adventure, MySims Kingdom adds up to a compelling adventure in the same vein as the Lego adventures. The humour is charming and funny, the puzzles are interesting and the characters are lovable. MySims Kingdom is a really great game, but there are some major flaws hampering the experience, such as potentially game breaking bugs, which ultimately leads to a lower score.

    Fans of the Ghostbusters movies from the 80's will be happy to know that this videogame adaptation has managed to capture the charming and geeky atmosphere found in the silver screen source material. Once you've acquired enough weapons and upgrades the gameplay becomes really entertaining and you'll also find a multiplayer mode that acts as entertaining bonus material, at least for a little while. Annoying flaws, such as grotesquely long loading sequences and sudden inexplicable deaths, do hamper an otherwise great experience well worth checking out.

    The games themselves are pretty good, (especially Sands Of Time) but these games features only slight improvements i the graphics. As a result, the game still features pretty old and the controls and the camera could have been polished. But even if you won't feel like playing them all in one turn, it's a good deal for three good games.

    With charming graphics and a great control scheme, this title is a premiere example of WiiWare titles that are all but cheap hand-me-downs. Controlling your character by manipulating the wind is great fun and easy to understand. This is a short experience though, easily being beatable in one sitting. No replay value whatsoever lowers the score of an otherwise great title that is definitely worth it's price tag.

    If you're in for an easygoing pick up and play type of game you can't go wrong with Lego Batman. Like the other games in the Lego franchise this is pure fun entertainment perfectly suited for game time for parents and their children. On the downside there are few news to be found here when compared to previous titles and some puzzles are illogical and flat out poorly designed which dampens the overall experience.

    Ninja Gaiden is back, bloodier and more brutal than ever before. With flawless controls and a superb fighting system this is truly a fantastic action game, just like its predecessors. Unfortunately some awkward camera angles punishes the player far too often and the overall design fails to impress. The lack of innovation and some annoying flaws makes this title a lesser game than its predecessors.

    Bionic Commando is a fun, although somewhat unfinished, action title where the main attraction being the swinging mechanic the series was made famous for. Not only good for swinging, the bionic arm is also a vital part of the combat gameplay as it allows you to toss enemies and rubble alike with ease. Although the straightforward action setup in the game is an homage to the 20 year old original it fails to really motivate the player. A poor excuse for invisible walls, bleak level design and unimpressive firearms does hurt the overall impression of what could have been a really great game.

    Despite being a short puzzle adventure on the easy side this is a perfect example of playful game design that rubs off on the player. If you're in any way in touch with your inner child this is a well crafted and beautifully realized experience you'll love.

    In the videogame adaptation of the Ice Age 3 movie you'll get to control several characters from the movie. Most levels have a unique flavor of their own which leads to a varied but also somewhat splintered experience. Everything from Indiana Jones inspired levels to controlling dinosaur spaceship is represented in the game. Though it might be a somewhat uneven experience Ice Age 3 is still the best movie based game for kids thus far.

    Underworld is yet another solid title from Crystal Dynamics featuring the adventurous dame Lara Croft. Levels are as grand as they are beautiful and they certainly feed the urge to go o an adventure. The puzzles are well designed, and Miss Croft gets around well thanks to well implemented controls. There are some issues though, the game is a bit on the easy side, something badly balanced by less than stellar camera angles that will put you in a pickle from time to time. Despite this, Underworld is still a fantastic adventure.

    The first couple of hours in Eternal Sonata are simply enchanting. Great design, graphics and music together create a truly endearing atmosphere. Battling enemies in the game is great fun as you progress in the game and delve deeper into the battle mechanics. The plot is a bit uneven though and the options for exploration, character development and equipment are meager to say the least. These flaws aside, this is still a great and beautiful adventure.
