    Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers finally adds a deck editor, but cuts away many previous game modes resulting in a quite poor offering compared with the older games in the series. We didn't like the too-invasive microtransactions model, too.

    A plain porting from PC which doesn't contain enough substance to justify the admission ticket, quickly ending up on the boring side of the spectrum.

    Naughty Bear shows some good ideas and a great ironic violent vein, but it isn't enough to overcome the general dullness and the lackluster technical realization. It would have surely benefited from more time spent on polishing and adding deeper gameplay.

    SBK Generations will probably disappoint all the series fans due to the constant feeling of deja vĂ¹ it gives. It keeps however its strong simulative gameplay, so it's suitable for racing fans who never bought the previous games and want to race across four entire SBK seasons.

    What many were hoping to be one of the first real hardcore Kinect games turned into a very frustrating experience; the core concept is good and it's got some nice visuals too, but the motion control is too cumbersome.

    A forgettable title in Dragon Ball series, with some good ideas poorly executed. Here's hoping that the next chapters in the series will bring a needed revamp in quality.

    Prison Break: The Conspiracy offers nothing new under the sun, with a lackluster gameplay and a forgettable story. Lovers of the TV series should keep watching it instead of playing this game.

    • 58 Critic Score
    Call of Juarez: The Cartel doesn't add anything special to the FPS landscape except for the three-characters storyline, with a mediocre and unpolished technical production. A big step backwards compared to Bound in Blood, and departing from the old wild west setting didn't help.

    If judged only by the variety of available cars and circuits, this could be one of the best racing games around. Too bad it's dragged down by a frustrating gameplay made of odd design choices and awkward driving model.

    Fairytale Fights showed how the Playlogic team contains some exceptional artists and developers, capable to realize some wonderful worlds: unfortunately, it highlighted too some great problems in their game design and QA divisions. Great visual and a very intriguing base idea have been ruined by a very repetitive and unchallenging gameplay. It's a real pity, because this was one of our most watched games and it deserved a better treatment.

    A disappointing sequel for Ryu's saga, stripped of all the features that made the previous chapters stand out in the action games crowd.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    A mixed bag, with some unforgettable classics but many uninteresting or badly aged ones too, and without any extras to make the package more interesting.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    An overly simplified game, suited for children and casual gamers looking for a few hours of diversion between Hogwarts walls. The lackluster storytelling makes it more suitable for people already knowing the complete story, and it misses on giving the player any kind of challenge: it's basically comprised of the same three mini-games repeated over and over through the five hours needed to complete it.

    Penalized by a too arcadey approach, a non-existent physics simulation and other flaws, this game looks like a flop for Capcom, unable to revive the MotoGP franchise.

    • 55 Critic Score
    The only interesting part in the new Harry Potter game are the Kinect missions, while the main game fails with a flawed enemy AI and a too easy and linear gameplay.

    • 55 Critic Score
    This could have been a good game for every Ben 10 fan, but it's held back by some very evident gameplay flaws. Get it for your children only if you're willing to help them with the most frustrating sections.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    A mere add-on to the previous game, short and without any improvements to the first game, even losing features like Kinect support.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Even judging by kids standards, Kung Fu Panda 2 is ruined by flaws like bad movements recognitions and long load times. There are better Kinect games out there.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Rise of Nightmares is a missed opportunity. The idea of a first person horror game made more immersive thanks to motion controls is a very good one, but it fumbles in the controls department due to a clunky exploration system and a too simplistic and repetitive combat system. It deserved to be better thought out and developed.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    A step back for the series, with a more repetitive gameplay and not enough differentiation between the classic spidey and the 2099 one.

    • 55 Critic Score
    Spike's new game feels like a missed occasion: due a repetitive and limited gameplay and a bad storytelling, even fans of the series will feel uncomfortable with it.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Need for Speed: The Run fails where it was supposed to be stronger: its story mode is embarrassingly short, with gameplay problems like the automatic resets each time you even slightly go off-course, and with a dull and badly developed plot. What's left is a frantic and spectacular arcade racer with a solid online multiplayer, but lacking enough variety and content.

    THQ's graphic tablet proved to be a solid and well-thought product, but the bundle price is too high for what's inside, due to the lack of quality and contents in the Instant Artist software. Bundling it with Marvel Super Hero Squad or Pictionary - at the same price - would have been a wiser choice.

    One of the mostly anticipated Kinect games ended up being one of the sensor's poorest displays. It simply isn't fun even for kids, except for the dance portion of the game. If you can't resist wielding a virtual lightsaber, you might want to wait for a bargain price.

    • 55 Critic Score
    Slightly better than its quadriennial predecessors, London 2012 suffers from an highly unbalanced difficulty, short longevity and the absence of real-world athletes. Mostly enjoyable in multiplayer.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Risen 2 successfully manages to recreate the charming mood of pirate stories, but very bad visuals and gameplay with a too steep difficulty curve contribute to drag down its overall value.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    It sports the charismatic characters from the movie, but lacks in variety and player satisfaction. Avoidable.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    A missed chance both for Sega/Gearbox and every Aliens or even FPS genre fan. Unsatisfying in every aspect, Aliens: Colonial Marines doesn't do justice to the name it carries.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    A disappointment. One great problem is the loss of the series' personality, but it's nothing compared to the lack of any play modes other than the 8-hour campaign. EA likely bet all of its money on co-op, but there are better games around with that feature.

    • 55 Critic Score
    Star Trek fans' hopes for a really good game tied to Roddenberry's franchise are once again crushed. Star Trek disappoints both in the technical and gameplay aspects, trying to emulate other popular titles but failing to do so.
