    A very interesting game but somewhat unrefined. Good environments and missions design isn't followed by a suitable storytelling, denying us a more deep immersion. It stays however a good flight combat sim, with a very solid and satisfying gameplay.

    Asura's Wrath sports an entertaining and adrenalinic gameplay, coupled with great visuals and a captivating storytelling style. Nevertheless, its very repetitive gameplay, short duration and too low challenge level contribute to drag down its overall value.

    An entertaining, highly varied and technically excellent pool game, even if lacking in innovation or new elements for its genre.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Interesting gameplay mechanics and a suspense-rich plot make it a game worth to be tried, even if it could have been much better.

    A game you'll love or hate. Great graphics and art style make it a very pretty platform game, but the high and unforgiving difficulty could scare away the ones approaching it just for the looks.

    If played locally, PES 2014 is a great soccer game showing that Konami took the right path for its series rebirth. But as you try getting online, countless problems arise making it hardly playable.

    Notwithstanding its defects, mainly in the on-foot part of the game and overall graphical look, Wheelman proves to be entertaining and able to keep the gamer involved until the end of the story. The action-racing part of the game offers some unique and interesting gameplay ideas that we'd like to see recycled in games with higher production values.

    Despite the new and interesting Challenge Play mode and the great golf implementation, Kinect Sports Season Two looks like a step backwards for the series, with generally uninteresting sports expecially for the european public. Keeping the first game sports together with the new ones would have kept it more interesting, adding more variety to the entire package.

    The Saboteur contains several good ideas with a nice mix of several gameplay styles, but due to a lacking technical realization stays in the group of half-succeeded games.

    The greatest achievement of Blood Bowl developers has been staying uber-faithful to the original board game rules, delivering us a deep and very rewarding game that should meet the tastes of every turn-based strategy lover. Unfortunately, the game stumbles on an bad user interface, complete lack of online leagues support and a too basic tutorial that fails to explain the game fundamentals to newcomers. If you're already a fan of the board game you'll surely like it, but everyone else should consider buying it only if willing to dedicate several hours to learn the game basics.

    Race Pro oozes with Simbin's passion for motorsports, but with some shortcomings lowering its global quality: a very good simulation model, great roar sounds and an accurate tracks reproduction coexist with annoying frame rate problems and a mediocre cars reproduction. It's mainly a game for ultra-fans of cars and motors, looking for a very straightforward experience.

    THQ successfully manages to bring us a wrestling game aimed at the nostalgic, long-time fans, that will be able to relive some of the greatest moments of WWE from the ’80s and ’90s. The simplified gameplay makes it more approachable to every kind of gamer, but the hardcore ones could dislike its lack of difficulty, even at the higher levels.

    Ninja Blade's greatest value resides in its high cinematic spectacularity, which makes it very enjoyable if you like this kind of excessive Hollywood action. Nevertheless, it's excessive use of QTEs and its sometimes frustrating controls make it a rough experience, suited only for the more forgiving and patient gamers.

    Codemasters tried to bring on console a real military simulation and we can say it succeeded, giving us more depth in firefights. But it’s a tough game, unsuitable for classic FPS lovers and demanding much patience, dedication and tactic thinking. On our final opinion weigh the IA and technical problems we encountered, coupled with a lackluster online multiplayer. It’s a good start on which we hope the developers will build for a more solid and polished sequel.

    Fuel isn't lacking in defects, like not-so-great graphics, high difficulty spikes and some random bugs, but the game is surely enjoyable. The career mode gives us a very varied experience, and the online modes contribute to keep the longevity high: suggested to the offroad racing fans.

    Supreme Commander 2 could have been one of the best console RTSes around, but it fails due to a really substandard technical side. However if you can turn a blind eye on the shoddy visuals, you'll like the deep units management system, the very immediate and dynamic control system and the good online support.

    Crackdown 2 doesn't do anything particularly bad, but either doesn't do anything to shine above the other games. Chaos and destruction are everywhere, even after we've cleaned up an area of the city, making it impossible to quietly explore the city in search of secrets and orbs, like in the first game. It's a fun game at first, but it wears quickly into a repeated more of the same.

    Fighters Uncaged is probably the only Kinect launch game trying to introduce a more thought and tactical gameplay, where success and satisfaction is achieved by properly reacting to the enemy moves. Unfortunately the experience is partially ruined by some problems in moves detection and an uninspired design.

    A charismatic game with relaxing and enjoyable gameplay and a very likeable main character. It's however a bit too easy for expert gamers, which could lose gamers' interest in a couple of hours.

    A very original game, both from the gameplay and artistic points of view; what keeps it from being a real masterpiece are its simplicity and repetitiveness in objectives. It's however highly suggested to everyone looking for different and innovative gaming experiences.

    A two sided game. On one side we have a lacklustre technical production, absolutely not on par with modern standards, while on the other side we've got the classical Duke humour, capable of delivering some very funny moments. Duke Nukem Forever is like a refreshing dive in the past of gaming, something that someone will surely apreciate, while others will prefer more modern productions.

    The best title in the series yet, thanks to the great anime style visuals and the addition of a bit of strategic gameplay. Koei needs to work on the confusing story and the dull and repetitive environments, though.

    Dead Island is an entertaining game, with interesting locations and a good RPG component, even if sometimes too cumbersome. Its main problems reside in a disappointing technical production and annoying bugs that sometime prevent us from completing a mission, forcing us to reload the last save. It's a very good game concept, but too unpolished.

    A unique game, with great and distinctive artistic design; if you can turn a blind eye on the somewhat repetitive gameplay and quite short longevity, it could prove to be one of the most memorable visual experiences of this generation.

    A very good and mixed tracklist meets relatively simple and forgiving dance mechanics, where we'll mainly use our upper body. More suited as a party game rather than a real challenge for dance enthusiasts.

    It lacks on the visuals side, especially after the other movie tie-ins Ubisoft got us to, but it sports a charismatic cast and solid gameplay. An enjoyable game, recommended to newcomers and fans of the belgian character, children and grown-ups.

    A good family game, entertaining even if not too challenging. Parents and children won't stay flat to Disney's characters great charm, even if in the form of funny costumes.

    A solid game that will plese all LEGO and Harry Potter lovers, but it doesn't add anything new to TT Games' formula.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A solid and well thought game with great visuals and gameplay variety, but you'll finish it in a couple of hours and the free movement system often gets in the way. Better suited for a budget-priced buy.

    Konami's horror games are still highly enjoyable thanks to a great focus on emotional pathos rather than on the technical side. Nevertheless, this collection feels like a lazy port, with several problems and no added extras. A worthy buy only if you've never played these great classics.
