    The Golf Club brings to the table some interesting features, like social interaction and the advanced course editor. Unluckily it fails in providing a good shot planning and swing mechanics, coupled with unpolished visuals and the lack of a more thought-out game structure.

    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.

    A solid arcade karting game, with an original and catchy point of view on the Formula One circus. Both kids and grown-up F1 fans will find it entertaining and funny.

    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 nice take on the usual RPG formula, with a great story and good graphics even if the the gameplay and combat system fail to fully persuade.

    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.

    A light, casual and funny game at a low price; if you're into arcade and frantic racers, it's worth your Microsoft Points.

    Even if not lacking defects, The Crew shines in many aspects managing to deliver and entertaining arcade racing experience and tons of content.

    A great experience for every lover of this genre: exciting and longeve modes, stunning graphics and a good online multiplayer make it a sure bet for every lover of off-road arcade racers.

    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.

    Alpha Protocol is the best example as many good ideas can't save a game with a mediocre gameplay and technical side. Obsidian made some good things with the dialogue system, but the shabby visuals, a bad aiming system and a ridiculous AI can let down even the more passionate spy stories and RPGs fan.

    DarkStar One fails in every aspect, even if we have to acknowledge it the merit of having introduced some potentially interesting mechanics.

    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.

    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.

    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 crude, violent and enjoyable game, even if somewhat monotonous in its many firefights. Too bad for its really too short duration: you'll end up shelving it after few hours of play.

    MX vs ATV: Alive fails in bringing on the series solid legacy, mainly due to some technical problems and its contents scarcity. Even for a budget priced game, it contains too few tracks forcing the player to repeating always the same ones or buying others via DLCs. Other games like Nail'd, Pure or the previous title in the series, MX vs ATV Reflex, offer a more entertaining and comprehensive package.

    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 lazy straight-to-HD porting, inexplicably missing the second game in the series, with control problems and issues like the Playstation controls shown on the Xbox 360 version.

    The perfect game for every MJ lover and one of the best Kinect games around: a must buy if you're willing to put some work in learning all Michael Jackson's signature moves.

    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.

    Superstars V8 Racing is an easily forgettable game: once finished the championship and established some track records in the free race mode, you won't desire to go back to the game, due to its very frustrating gameplay and poor and bug-ridden online multiplayer. Unless you're great fans of the italian Superstars championship, we suggest you wait for much better racers coming in the next months.

    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.

    AC Liberation HD lacks the production values the series used us to, and even if it's a Live Arcade release it results in a weak experience, with a badly narrated story and the complete omission of the multiplayer component, present in the original version. Ubisoft did a good HD porting job, but it's hardly an unmissable game.

    Divinity II: Ego Draconis left us with a bitter taste: while being a quite good PC game, the console porting leaves much to desire. The charm of being able to transform into a dragon and the nice plot aren't enough to save the game, undermined by a shoddy technical side and a frustrating gameplay.

    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.

    A good and very solid Kinect beat-em-up for Kinect, combining an effective combat system to Marvel heroes' charm. One of the very best Kinect games of the holidays.

    A good action game with a straight and easy gameplay, suitable for the whole family.

    With WRC 3 Milestone managed to improve its series with a satisfying driving model and a lot of contents for rally fans; it still needs some work in the graphics department, but this third episode marks a good step forward in the right direction. Highly recommended to racing and rally lovers.

    A decent transition game for Bandai Namco's series, with a great character roster and interesting original scenes made by Studio Pierrot. But it still feels like a more of the same, lacking a real Revolution.
