    A really lovely video game with a balanced genre combination. Although not reaching the level of the greatest games of Nintendo 3DS, the new adventure from Koichi Ishii is a remarkable and varied adventure game.

    Maybe not your average RTS, but Sins of a Solar Empire achieves something that other games don’t: it’s a compelling game, and from the moment you pick it up, you can’t avoid playing it until the end. With missions that last several days or weeks, users can exploit the deep gameplay thanks to its easy interface, in a very tactical game, but also really fun, both offline and online.

    MAG
    256 players in the same battlefield is clearly a new step beyond what console online gaming was offering. Spectacular in its size, MAG allows at the same time a deep approach for the hardcore FPS lovers, and also an easier gameplay appealing for those more casual action gamers. The lack of any non-online mode can limit its influence, and the visuals are not over the top, but in the end, MAG achieves success delivering the closest experience to fighting on a living battlefield.

    With a good plot and atmosphere for a survival horror, the game only lacks a more refined action sections to get to a higher point. The importance of the decisions gives it a higher replayability than expected in the genre.

    The Sexy Brutale is a nice piece of art. Its artistic values are great, with amazing visuals and sound, and the story is amazing and charming. It's an interesting evolution of traditional point'n'click adventures.

    Battle Royale has good roster, great netcode and online multiplayer with accessible and fun gameplay. But has mechanics that are too simple and some overpowered characters and attacks.

    Anno 2070 is a new and attractive offer for fans of the genre, as it is a clear successor of Anno 1404. But Blue Byte's work still suffers the same defects as always: oversimplification of commercial, diplomatic and military elements. However, this is a high quality title and a perfect choice if you liked any of the Anno series titles. You should not hesitate to colonize the futuristic version of a these great games, although you're not a science fiction fan. And if you've never gone through any Anno-game, you will have a good opportunity to jump into the genre.

    Keita Takahashi, Katamari Damacy's creator, offers us this new and original game exclusively for PlayStation 3. Noby Noby Boy is a game without rules, endless, in which fun is mixed with random situations and a surreal world. A simple game, cheap, and extremely fun.

    Grand Kingdom is a great Tactical RPG with deep, fun and dynamic combat system, good art direction and an original online system. However, has too many trial and error moments.

    Though there're a few glitches that doesn't makes it the best shooter on Wii, Modern Warfare 3 stands as a well-made adaptation for those who are willing to have a taste on Infinity Ward's latest blockbuster.

    Prototype has great potential, but unfortunately, it does not deliver everything we expected it to. Great fun, lot of possible evolutions and powers, action and a lot of blood; everything well mixed in a game that should have been a little more polished in order to improve its presentation.

    This (finally) uncensored version is a remake of the first No More Heroes, now in great looking HD. Suda 51 was the team involved in the development of the first game and we love their style, great sense of humor and exaggerated characters. Move is a great substitute for the Wiimote, and the lack of a Nunchuk is not a big deal for performing combos and wrestling attacks. And this time you can also use the DualShock 3 gamepad. The game is almost identical to the original one and we only have a few additions like the dreams (replay old cinematics) and nightmares (replay old battles). We had hoped for a major improvement in the visuals, but only the light effects are noticeably better. If you are looking for a extremely fun and unique action game for your PS3, don't think too much about this, just pick Heroes Paradise and start hunting assassins.

    Like Emerald or Crystal, Pokémon Platinum is more an expansion for Diamond and Pearl than a whole new game. Because of that, the graphics one of the best Nintendo DS RPG are still totally outdated and the gameplay is extremely similar to the first versions of Pokémon. The history mode hasn't changed significantly, although the Distortion World appears as a very different dungeon. The online experience is even richer with the inclusion of Wi-Fi Plaza and the Vs. Recorder system. It's not recommended for the people who bought any of the previous Nintendo DS Pokémon, but if you are not one of them, then this must be your choice.

    The work of 11 bit Studios is a marvelous cross between the aesthetic of Deadlight and the idea behind Zafehouse Diaries... With no zombies involved. A game about survival at its hardest, deepest, most depressing and most realistic shape. Its setting has that bit of post-apocalyptic game, but actually moves us to a reality that many people lives at many places right now. This War of Mine is the to war games like protest songs to pop-rock ones. A bold, brave and exciting offering that deserves to be played.

    Phoenix Wright is back at his best. A handful of new gaming options take Dual Destinies to an upper-state of quality, although the core of the gameplay still focuses mostly in finding out the truth by means of thousands of lines of dialogue. Both fans and newcomers will enjoy the traditional approach of the franchise.

    Keeping the series formula, LEGO Batman 3 escapes from Earth to take us beyond Gotham in a Justice League adventure, with the Lantern Corps, Superman and 145 more apart from Batman & Robin. We have lost the sandbox component, but in exchange we have different planets to explore and new abilities to use. Maybe the whole thing is not as fresh as was last year's Marvel Superheroes, but DC fans have here a unique DC bible of heroes and villains. C'mon, we even have Adam West as Batman! Isn't that the top of the LEGO Batman series?

    Dying Light: The following has great additions like sidequests system and Buggy mechanics. Stills first person adventure with survival elements, but it's more solid and fun than de original game. However, has some AI enemy issues and lack of parkour mechanic.

    Blood Bowl features some interesting ideas, like introducing a real-time component to the universe of the board game. Furthermore, it really achieves the look and feel of the miniature game, providing a experience that resembles the original product without any doubt. Despite the fact that this is a product that fit good the fans liking, it can be interesting for every kind of gamer. Only the real time mode, that quickly become a nonsense melee is a visible drawback for a good planned and constructed game.

    Blur is a great arcade game, a mixture of Mario Kart's, Burnout's and Need for Speed's gameplay, but with the depth of every Bizarre Creation's works. The AI is great, there are enough game modes, and it has the multiplayer needed to become one of the best arcade racing games of the year.

    The new expansion for Men of War, issued as a stand-alone product, allows us to take part in skirmishes set in World War II. Its control focuses on infantry units and remains flexible and fluid, while improvements in artificial intelligence provide a valuable tactical product. One of the best options nowadays, whether this is the first time you approach a game like this or you are already a veteran of the genre.

    Age of Empires is updated to compete against the latest versions of mobile and social games. The tactic is obvious: provide a free experience supported by optional subscriptions. The basis of the product are of good quality and adequate enough to attract different types of players, but the specifics details concerning expansions packs will define the user acceptance and the future of the bet ultimately. A very good job for now.

    An interesting visual novel game which gains interest with the next chapter to know what will happen next to unravel Aya Fumino’s mystery. Its setting in the city of Matsue, in Shimane prefecture, and the variety of endings makes this game an interesting option in its genre.

    Magic. That is what this Miranda Goshawk's 200 years old Book of Spell brings every time we turn a page of Wonderbook. The level of interaction between Move, the book and what we see on the screen is probably the highest Sony has achieved in the field of Augmented Reality. Maybe it's short, very easy on its level of difficulty and simple in its gameplay, but it's also a very captivating experience.

    Arctic Edge is one of the best driving games for the PlayStation Portable, despite not being perfect and not having a so-well-looking graphic engine, that's lacking a more in-depth development of the vehicles that the games presents. Besides this aspect, the newest MotorStorm is a good example of how to adapt an impressive driving game into a handheld experience without losing its credentials.

    Let's learn how to take the same game that we tasted two years ago and, adding a new control scheme, the experience changes from top to bottom. That's what 5th Cell has managed to do with Super Scribblenauts - It's the same as the first one, but it just takes the experience to another level.
