    Wanted: Weapons of Fate combines interesting gameplay ideas with an highly cinematic style, creating an enjoyable experience even if a little repetitive. Unfortunately, its merits get overshadowed by its four hours longevity, more adequate to a Live Arcade game than to a full price retail game.

    Despite the evident technical limits, this was an entertaining game with an interesting mix of first person view and point-and-click gameplay. If you're missing the old graphical adventures you could evaluate buying it, maybe at budget price.

    Body and Brain Connection succeeds in keeping our mind agile thanks to new kinds of exercises only possible with Kinect, but it hardly will be able to keep your attenction high for more than few minutes per day. Consider it if you're looking for a challenging mind test, but don't expect a properly entertaining experience.

    It's got the great Tony Hawk's classic gameplay and good online support, but with too little in the way of content and no local multiplayer it's a half-successful revival.

    Naughty Bear finally finds its proper home on XBLA, with a new customization system and its usual strong humor.

    Except for the new intro anime sequence, there's nothing particularly interesting in ZoE HD Collection if you already played the games on PS2. If you never played them instead, it's surely a solid game with good controls and a nice anime feeling, but it didn't age quite well.

    A very singular game, coupling a good multiplayer with a forgettable and short single player campaign and, especially, a disappointing technical production if compared to Platinum Games standards. Thanks to its budget price and uniqueness could however be worth a buy if you’re looking for a different and furious brawler to pass some time with.

    The game is visually nice like all the previous LEGO titles, but we didn't like the removal of some important scenes in Indiana Jones saga and the by now stale gameplay.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    A pleasant and relaxing adventure, capable of combining different genres like rythm and platform games. If it wasn't for the repetitiveness of settings and situations, it could have achieved a higher score.

    Angry Birds Trilogy keeps intact all the original games' qualities, but it belongs to in pockets much more than your living room. And the price feels too high, especially when all three games are available elsewhere for free or at much lower prices.

    A completely unconvincing campaign is coupled with a good multiplayer with some interesting modes and choices.

    Despite its many defects, mainly the tricky controls and the bland story, X-Blades revealed to be somewhat enjoyable, and capable of keeping us interested until the end.

    Afro Samurai shines on one side for its great artistic value, with some of the best cel-shaded graphics seen to date and great music and dubbing, but on the other side we find very boring gameplay, unable to provide us a good challenge level. The game will be mainly appreciated by the fans of the original manga/anime, while all the others will also have problems to follow the story, due to an inconsistent storytelling.

    Dark Void shows some good premises, but Airtight couldn't manage to let its wings spread open, delivering us an uninspired game lacking any truly memorable moments.

    If Eat Lead developers wanted to revive some of 80's gaming cliches, they succeeded: but this brought with it some heavy shortcomings, like great linearity, no environment interaction, and a very repetitive soundtrack. Nevertheless, the game is still enjoyable, mainly due to some very crazy moments. We suggest to give it a chance just for trying, but only when you'll be able to find it at a budget price.

    This game offers nothing new, but it succeeds in blending together different genders, offering a pleasant package for younger players, whom will find it very easy to learn. It's isn't clearly aimed to the hardcore gamer who won't find anything particularly interesting in it.

    A nice game, for a very young public but that sometimes will even please the nostalics of old 2D platform games. Surely suitable for kids and families willing to relive the movie adventures with Sid and friends.

    Heroes Over Europe is playable without ever becoming too boring or repetitive, but some defects undermine its gameplay and the challenge level that people desires from this kind of games. If you aren't looking for an overly simulative experience, you could consider at least renting it.

    Shank is too short and easy for a 1200 points Arcade. It sports very nice graphics and an immediate gameplay, but after a couple of levels it rapidly wears out becoming quite boring even with its offline co-op.

    Sonic Free Riders feels like a rushed game: it's got a great potential and looks like one of the deepest games in the Kinect launch line-up, but all is compromised bye e very imprecise Kinect support, not on par with other games seen so far. Too bad the developers didn't have more time to improve this only, but essential, aspect.

    A good fan service title, with several improvements over the previous game in terms of gameplay variety.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Not a game for everyone, which bets all in pure destructive action and online co-op, sacrificing graphics and story.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Hunted: The Demon's Forge doesn't excel in anything in particular and is hindered by noticeabel graphical and AI problems, but it manages to offer a fair amount of fun if played in co-op. We expected much more, but if you like fantasy games you could be willing to give it a chance.

    Captain America: Super Soldier isn't a bad game, but it lacks that brightness and polish that can make the difference between an acceptable game and a good or very good one.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    An interesting title and with good potential, but it drowns in defects we can't ignore, like the badly balanced difficulty and a bad ui in the menus. You could however consider it if you're looking for a more serious Kinect sports game.

    A fair co-op shooter, full of funny moments but not standing out in any particular area. Only for side scrolling shooters uber-aficionados.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    An insane and wildly entertaining game, something untouched by the alleged japanese developers creative crisis; too bad its short longevity and low challenge level concur to drag the overall rating down, but it deserves to be tried.

    Inversion feels like a missed chance: Saber nailed the gameplay basics following Gears of War's footsteps, but the gravity-based mechanics needed a more creative and emergent approach. An interesting plot would have helped too.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    We appreciate Square's willingness to keep the original spirit of the games unchanged, but they should have done more to make the last-gen games more pleasant to see on modern consoles. The result is too rough and probably advisable only to the stealth genre's super-fans.

    A classical beat-em up to enjoy some time alone or with friends. Too bad for the weak and inadequately developed story, something that could have been the true value of the game.
