    The 3rd Birthday is different from its elder brothers, being an action-based adventure with few RPG elements. Although the visuals are stunning, the gameplay suffers from a few glitches, along with the metaphysical storyline, that has nothing to do with the original Parasite Eve titles. This said, it's a great buy if you're looking for an interesting game with a beautiful empty-minded protagonist.

    The Walking Dead: 400 Days is a good bridge between Season one and two. Five new characters with great conversations and hard decisions too make. However, the DLC is shorter than the first five chapters.

    With some of the best graphics in the system, solid controls and gameplay, and a big variety of missions, Metroid Prime Federation Force is a well crafted title that should please both fans of the franchise as well as newcomers. The online could be a bit disappointing, however, as the lack of voice chat makes difficult to divide the work among the team and other players are not always reliable.

    Catnip has done a fantastic job taking the original Boulder Dash into a new freshly-made title that looks superb on XBLA. Perfect fit for those looking for a great challenge.

    Remember that monologue of Elwood Blues in Blues Brothers 2000 about the music? Sound Shapes is that in the form of a playable musical experience like no other. Music is not only the soul of this indie title for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, but the spine too in the aspect of a classic vintage 2D platform experience with a distinctive and unique visual styles that even carry within it a complete level & music editor, which only would have been needed a longer Campaign Mode.

    Dead Nation, one of the best downloadable games available on PS3, updates its technical section to make an appearance on PS4. Spectacular and addictive, it also manages to be an essential game on the new console.

    Dishonored has a good DLC in The Knife of Dunwall. Daud's story begins, with average length, but some adjustments that make it fun to kill and hide. It's more accurate, and very dark and challenging.

    Another post-apocalyptic FPS with an incredibly immersive atmosphere that shines in its audio-visual narrative. Its good gameplay in battle has some problems, like simple puzzles and poor multiplayer.

    First Light introduces new ideas into Second Son mechanics, with good variety of missions and ton of side-quests and extras. However, main story is too easy and enemies' AI has some issues.

    Great old-school RPG that delivers 100h+ of gameplay, an intriguing story-line and a strategic combat-system. It might be seen as a tribute to the most popular games of the genre, such as Wizardry or Might & Magic. There's nothing better out there for a more-than-fair 19.95€ price.

    It may not be a perfect port of the PS3 version, nobody should reasonably expect that, and it suffers from the lack of some effects, jaggies, and a reduced volume of traffic, but you can't underestimate the small wonder that is having Most Wanted running flawlessly on a handheld. Criterion has done a great job making sure the core of the experience remains untouched, showing that there is a still a lot of untapped potential for Vita.

    The expansion of Left 4 Dead is just that, an expansion. This is a new campaign, more than two episodes in the case of PC users, is free. A good initiative to spur even more arousing interest in Left 4 Dead 2.

    Insufficient expansion for the regulars of the title, but an excellent choice for those who want to initiate in it. We were looking forward to much more.

    Alan Wake is back with an interesting new episode. It's the same game, with the same visuals, the same environments, the same enemies, the same weapons... but with an interesting plot. It's short (about an hour of gameplay), but it's fun and interesting, and the most important thing, it's cheap.

    Aion isn't the revolution the genere probably needs, but it is definitely a well-designed MMORPG that is going to be specially enjoyed by all those PVP fans that want a deeper experience while fighting other players. Beautiful graphics, excellent performance and almost no bugs/problems. It definitely deserves a try.

    Traveller's Tales wanted to make Harry Potter's latest adventure his best, and they succesfully made it. This chapter delivers exactly what fans are looking for, that is - tons of spells, unlockable content, +200 characters and plenty of fun for any follower of this franchise.

    The whole essence of the EA Sports games in PSVita, but with some significant cuts. A good beginning for the sport on the new machine.

    Shadows of the Damned is, overall, a fun game, with hilarious moments and great gameplay. It lacks an interesting plot and it resembles its creator's previous works, but it's a worthy experience that will satisfy third-person action lovers.

    Ghostbusters does honor the movie. An entertaining game, with a huge array of gameplay possibilities. Some technical issues (judgements), problems with the AI, and a steep learning curve are the main problems with a game that could have fared much better. Nevertheless, it is a game recommended to the fans of Ivan Reitman's film, and to those who love the comedy of the 80s. To be a ghostbuster is the ultimate experience.

    Yes, it´s the fourth iteration already of Ninja Gaiden and yes, it´s still a near perfect game that look and controls great in this Vita version. The novelties like the Hero mode add nothing to the winning formula, but it´s still a fantastic Beat'em up.

    Outrun Online Arcade is, essentially, the same game that arrived on PS2, Xbox and PSP three years ago, but it's still a great offering for arcade lovers. Several game modes, great visuals and a lot of fun in a game that it's worth it, if you don't own last-gen entries.

    A rare example of a sandbox in a MMO, with lots of potential and good quality, but we wish we could arrive at the sandbox part sooner.

    Section 8: Prejudice has learned too much from the mistakes of its predecessor, but it isn't strong enough to become a clear choice in its genre. The game offers many hours of fun thanks to a fast-paced and fun multiplayer mode, but it still lacks of more depth, more options and a better use its potential. Anyway, it is a good example of FPS.

    Eternal Sonata's very much the same game that we saw two years ago with a bunch of new goodies and an improved engine system that allowed tri-Crescendo to use once more its colourful world, loaded with strange characters and defying monsters. Its a worth-buying game if you don't have the X360 edition.

    6 new exercises, 15 extra cool mini-games, multiplayer mode, calorie counter, and many enhancements for only 19.90$. Exercise for everybody improved with the same efficiency and more fun. A great expansion.

    Two years later, Assassin's Creed tries again to make real those promises from Ubisoft, and prove itself as a better game than it was. The truth is that, despite the Renaissance setting, the vivid locations and the historical landmarks, the new features added don't really improve the sequel: the same repetitive mechanics remain, as the flawed enemy AI, a rough combat system and moments of frustration coming from issues with the camera and the control response in the platform sections. Assassin's Creed II it's still a good game but far from the masterpiece Ubisoft has been promising.

    It's a good bonus chapter, as it has all the best features from both the original game and The Signal. But it fails to amaze as the previous games did, and its story is not as great as we all wanted it to be. A great game for lovers of the original, but it could have been something more.
