    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.

    White Night surprised us with a very classic survival horror experience, combined with a great visual style and good noir story. Despite of some difficulty and controls problems, it's a very recommended buy for genre lovers.

    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 visually compelling game, Pneuma: Breath of Life offers very original puzzles mechanics and an interesting background story, but lacks in length resulting in 2-3 total hours of play.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A respectable action game, that manages to entertain from start to finish also thanks to a nice story with a touch of black humour.

    Deadpool's charm and the great nonsense humor that High Moon Managet do infuse in the game are its brightest spots; on the other side we find an average and quite anonymous gameplay, with a too short longevity. Deadpool fans will surely love it, while anyone else should at least wait to find it at a budget price.

    James Bond 007: Blood Stone sports a good gameplay both in the action and racing sections, but its short duration and the unsatisfying story keep it from being a true must have for every Bond fan.

    A good fan service title, with several improvements over the previous game in terms of gameplay variety.

    This new FPS by Zombie Studios is enthralling, original and frenetic: a different shooter with a good online mode, even if partly ruined by campers.

    An honest tie-in, with nice gameplay and enjoyable both by children and parents. Buy suggested especially if you're looking for a game to play together with your kids.

    The new Star Wars games shines for its awesome graphics and refined controls, but it's not enough to overcome a boring and short story and very repetitive gameplay.

    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.
