    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Spark Unlimited did well with the game's script and the stunning landscapes, but all this gets hindered by a too-repetitive gameplay and an overly slow pace, worsened by the too many and frequent load screens.

    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.

    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.

    Not a game for everyone, which bets all in pure destructive action and online co-op, sacrificing graphics and story.

    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.

    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.

    Sniper Elite III sports very hard, tactical missions with a good and varied level design, but it disappoints in the graphics and enemy AI departments as well.

    Shiftlings sports some nice puzzle mechanics, but it gets old very quickly resulting in the reiterated proposition of the same kinds of puzzles arranged in different and uninspired levels. It gets better, however, when played in co-op with a friend.

    Quite a disappointment for nostalgic gamers who recalled the great 90's PC game. Even the most rabid AvP fans will find it hard to accept the game's many flaws and brief longevity except for the quite entertaining online multiplayer.

    Create can involve the phisics puzzles lovers with a very nice gameplay, but fails in its main feature, the user content creation. A missed chance for EA.

    Defiance shows sparks of great potential, which stays mainly untapped due to an overall lack of mission variety and a bad allied and enemy AI. Its bright spot resides in the good co-op experience, so you could consider buying it if you're planning to play with friends.

    StokEd tastes of missed chance. Even if being sometimes entertaining, the game lacks in too many aspects. If you’re desperately looking for a new skateboarding sim, we suggest to pick it up when you’ll able to find it at a cheaper price.

    A quite entertaining and fast paced auto-runner, which unfortunately lacks in longevity and variety.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    The game tries to broaden the series focus to the classic FPS lovers thanks to a more tight and interesting plot, while trying to please the causal public thanks to the new controller gun and a less simulative gameplay. A controversial title, that even if not excelling in any particular area, could be quite interesting for some gamers.

    Wet
    Some interesting ideas, the grotesque violence and tarantinian movie atmosphere aren't enough to raise Wet over the average action games. The game is penalized from a mediocre technical production, awkward gameplay choices and a short longevity, making it suitable only for those of you fascinated by the nice main character and a lot of gratuitous violence.

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen revealed to be as the average low-budget movie tie-in. Hardcore gamers will hardly find a reason to buy it, so it's a viable buy only for Transformers' uber-fans, thanks to the many unlockable extras too.

    An average title suited only to hardcore TBEP fans, lacking enough variety and features to please the broader dancing games lovers crowd too.
    • 58 Metascore

    An artistically nice action-platformer with a boring and repetitive gameplay.

    The Godfather II represents for many aspects a missed chance, especially regarding the new management part, too superficial and unsatisfying. The technical aspects perfectly line up with the overall mediocrity of this new EA Games production, but the action part revealed to be quite fun, especially the executions, even if it gets quickly old due to its repetitiveness. The game doesn't live up to the higher standards of some of the latest EA Games productions, and for a brand like this it's a real pity.

    Saw
    Saw presents an interesting plot and an unexpected and shocking ending, being able to frighten and cause anguish in the player. Too bad all this is partly ruined by a very bad combat system, too few available weapons and flat enemies.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A generic shooter that doesn't do enough to justify its price.
    • 54 Metascore

    Warriors: Legends of Troy brings some novelty to the hack'n slash genre successfully distinguishing its gameplay from the previous Koei productions, but it lacks in some important areas like the only one mode available and short longevity.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A game with too many flaws and few qualities. We liked the new split-screen career co-op, but shoddy graphics, bad crashes management and poor enemy AI keep it from being a real alternative for bike racing enthusiasts.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A double sided game: while the combat system is immediate and easily approachable by every kind of gamer, other elements like the lack of local multiplayer and bad storytelling in the story mode steer it away from the casual players, the natural target for a Kinect game.

    Other than for the great charisma of Disney's characters and a very good soundtrack, Epic Mickey 2 doesn't shine any more: some inscrutable puzzles and a very bad friend AI management make it a frustrating experience, unsuited both to young and grown up players.

    A game only suited for fans of Cartoon Networks' hero, that you'll have finished in about 4-5 hours.
