    Battlestations: Pacific is an improved version of the original Battlestations. This sequel offers two campaigns, better than one, and five multiplayer modes. Conquer the Island, the best one, is a complete experience which can last even more than two hours. However, the mix of two genres, action and strategy, doesn't explore deeply any of them.

    Our Xbox 360s become a huge karaoke machine. Lips is not our average karaoke game, as it features several minigames that provide a bigger and more varied experience. A great tracklist and many fun features, but it could deliver videos in higher resolutions, and not every song has its own video. Also, the tracks do not work as smoothly as they could.

    They were right when they first called Infinite Space an "space opera", because that's exactly what we're going to find on this JRPG - an interesting mix between the traditional RPG and the Strategic genre, with a 'spacial' atmosphere that fans will love. And interesting pick if you love the genre or if you're looking for same 60 / 70 hours of fun gameplay.

    Eric has to find his brother. There's nothing more for him, just the fearless phantom figures that follow him all his way up to the Himalaya's mountain. Deep Silver had made one of their greatest games so far, with a very interesting storyline mixed with an even more interesting graphic engine. There's nothing to lose in here; it's a must-have for all terror-lovers that are looking forward to buy a good adventure for their favourite console.

    We can define Animal Crossing with "déjà vu". This title is almost identical to the Nintendo DS version, there are only minor changes, so nobody who played Wild World will find anything new in Let's Go to the City. But it's Animal Crossing, so it's a good game for all kind of players with dozens of objects to collect and lots of friends to meet.

    Skate was the first interesting alternative to the monopoly of Tony Hawk and its sequel improves many aspects of it, adding new features like multiplayer modes. Some AI problems and a lack of innovation over the fist one are the big problems of this title.

    Very dynamic and with lots of content. King's Bounty: The Legends doesn't add anything new to the strategy genre but it´s a worthy reinvention of a classic game which rediscovers some of it original offerings. Presentation and production values are top notch, but it's unnecessarily hard and some enemies are not correctly balanced, being too easy or too hard without offering a predictable difficulty curve.

    Mr.Esc has done it again, and this time he's going to rescue as many people as he can in this irrisistible NDS port of the critically aclaimmed puzzle-based Exit. More than 100 levels of puzzles and platforms await to the players who have not experienced this enjoyable work from Taito.

    MotoGP 08 is a refined version of "SBK 08," also from Milestone. Graphics, physics and gameplay are quite similar in both games. It´s best addition is the inclusion of three classes, which greatly improves its life cycle. With a few more improvements on mechanics and global atmosphere, it could stand as a very entertaining title for every racing gamer fan to consider.

    Renegade Kid's latest adventure is very much the same game as what we saw with Dementium: The Ward, but please note that's set in a different environment. This time your main role is to become Major Kane, a soldier that has to find our why his entire troop disappeared with no reason at the Moon. This time we'll find out.

    This remake of the revolutionary driving game hasn't improved the original work. However, we get a simple arcade game with lots of personality for the PlayStation Network. Its game mechanics, the circuit design and the lack of a solid multiplayer mode -especially a split-screen one- makes it just a plain fun game.

    Tri-Ace's latest Valkyrie Profile is a mixture between the usual style of the genre and the personal soul of this franchise. Covenant of the Plume is just another fair SRPGs that can presume of an intriguing story, lacking a better gameplay system. Its a fair game for the fans, but it's far away from the excellence of the original VP.

    Lumines Supernova is a great addition to the PSN catalogue. Lumines is one of the best puzzles created in the last years, and this new version conserves all the qualities of the original one. Unfortunately, the online modes shine by their absence.

    Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a comeback to the first game's gamestyle, but it has evolved, with more gameplay options, and much more features that are really fun. But there's still much work to do, for example with the AI. A good game that could have been much better overall.

    Phantasy Star Zero is a good MMORPG for the Nintendo DS. There are some flaws like the camera or the slower combat system, but the game knows its limits, and it fares rather well on the handheld.

    The console port of Sacred 2 is a great RPG, with many hours of fun. Gameplay-wise, it changes enough to adapt itself for controllers, and it offers the same depth as in the PC version. Not a game for everyone, but ideal for lovers of the genre.

    This new Xbox 360 exclusive is not what we expected. It has a lot of potential: it's a game with a lot of action in it, great gameplay, and quite charming. But it reuses many of its gameplay elements: backgrounds and enemies are almost always the same, and the game is not as deep as it promises at the beginning. A good game, but From Software could have done it much better.

    Dead to Rights: Retribution completely focuses on action, with no concession to relax. Clearly, for those who seek waves of enemies to eliminate with a funny gameplay and great graphics. Fans of pure action and visual entertainment will enjoy the adventures of agent Jack Slate and his canine friend Shadow.

    Elven Legacy is the classic turn-based strategy game, flavored with a touch of good role-playing. Released as a continuation of Fantasy Wars, you don't need the original game in order to play it. This game combines two styles of play that have proved to work perfectly, and put them in a well built fantasy world. Although it could hardly compete against the masters of the genre like Total War or Civilization series, it won't be weird if we were to meet future releases of this new series. Elven Legacy assures us several hours of fun featuring elves and many other creatures or monsters, rich colored graphics and a nice background story.

    Phantasy Star Portable is a great MMORPG for the PSP. While it's just a port, it delivers everything we could ever ask for in any game of the genre, and in handheld fashion. Interesting visuals, great gameplay and offline and online game modes, this game is just a step behind the Monster Hunter series on Sony's handheld.

    James Silva and Ska Studios did a good job with The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai, a very nice beat'em up without a deep storyline, but a great gameplay that remind us the classic games of the genre. This is not the "new Castle Crashers", but it's really a game that deserves an opportunity.

    Fun but short, magic but easy ... Klonoa jumps into Wii to become one of the best platform-games in 2.5D of the console. Jumps, colour and funny dreams for everyone, although it only lasts for the length of a nap.

    Jak and Daxter are back with a game that offers great visuals and gameplay, with many features that are worth it. Overall it's a good game, but we know that Jak's franchise can fare much, much better, and its pace in The Lost Frontier is not the ideal one.

    Frogwares offers us a great virtual adaptation of what happened in Whitechapel in 1988, with the adventures of Sherlock Holmes. A great story, with amazing puzzles all throughout the adventure.

    You have to learn how to reinvent yourself to take interesting atmosphere and parlay it to an outstanding action game, lacked by its own gameplay system and the use of a Wii motion plus controller that's not able to give the right feelings when playing. Red Steel 2 hit the action spot but nothing more than that. Fair enough considering the quality of its predecessor.

    The latest Donkey Kong is by far one of the best games for the Nintendo Wii platform, with tons of gameplay styles, secrets and a very particular use of its sense of humour that put a smile in your face. Its a meaningful example of the use of the remote to combine jumps and action. If you're looking for something fun, don't think it twice; this's your best chance.

    Laughs and more laughs with the new adventure of crazy rabbits of Rayman. He isn't new but the Rabbids are the perfect protagonists of a great adventure with lots of exploration, humor and simplicity to manage. Ubisoft has done its work very well in almost all aspects of the game, only it has missed making a product less repetitive and more difficult.

    Visually spectacular, a great beat'em up in the core, but with the wrong approach in the gameplay, victim of an almost nonexistent online and plain single player modes. Technically a good port, counting that it comes from PS3 ad 360 versions to a handheld, but the final result is far away from the excellence shown in Dark Resurrection.

    PES 2010 is a step forward in the series, much better than the entries in the last few years; but overall it's still behind its main rival, especially on the gameplay side. Animations and transitions aren't realistic, and it just offers a gameplay that its hardcore fans love. The best PES this generation, but that's not saying much.
