    Blacklight: Tango Down is a good concept and game limited by its average quality maps' level design and by some issues with weapons balancing and respawn spots.

    Lost the appeal of the previous episode, They Stole Max's Brain mixes good and less fun moments, challenging puzzle and boring ones. It's not a bad game at all but not even the best TellTale's product.

    Shrek: Forever After - The Game is, with no shadow of doubt, a title for all the young Shrek fans out there. However, it delivers a solid gameplay and some nice graphics that make it feel enjoyable by adult gamers as well.

    Beautifully crafted environment and a special feeling throughout the game are the main positive aspects in Dive: The Medes Islands Secret. With exploration in its purest form, the gameplay is a little too oversimplified but for a relaxing experience in the deepness of the sea this game can be a good choice.

    Good controls and visuals are the bright sides for Pearl Harbor Trilogy: 1941 - Red Sun Rising. Given the fact of the small price and the lack of competitors on Wii, this game can be interesting for lovers of the aerial combat shooters, but its flaws in terms of gameplay and level design can be very restraining also for the most firm virtual pilot.

    This 4th episode of Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse is the easiest and the plot flows without any upheaval, but a superb finale and the exhilarating couple of Sam & Max are capable to increase the expectation for the next chapter.

    Blood Stone is not a bad game, but it lacks so much personality to look just shallow. Although Blood Stone offers different styles of gameplay and situations, it doesn't excel at any of them: you will forget it as fast as it takes to clear the game, which is actually quite short. 007 fans will be pleased by Bond-ish plot and direction but to anyone else Blood Stone is just your usual third person shooter.

    Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs is not a bad game which brings along some neat features, still it's way too similar to the prequels, especially Shadows of Almia, both visually and gameplay wise. This new installment is recommended to anyone who never played Pokémon Ranger before and, of course, to any Pokémon fan who might want to add some rare monster to his own collection.

    Atelier Rorona The Alchemist of Arland is a nice japan RPG with a classic turn based combat system, where you can control a young apprendist alchemist across a variety of situation in the world of Arland. The greatest strength in the game is the crafting system: the player is required to complete certain missions involving the creation of items from ingredients. The Alchemist of Arland is ultimately a good game, especially for fans of the genre.

    As for the previous releases, the third chapter in the series seems just one part of a biggest game, split to be sold three times: Descent It's very close to the other episodes and thanks to a good level design It's possible the best one. That said there are a several better top-down shooters and one of them, Alien Swarm, It's free too.

    Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 seems to take a step back from the first episode of the series. The game fails to develop some of the previously introduced gameplay elements, giving the impression to be still "under construction" from that point of view. The road taken on by Ubisoft is surely paved with good intentions, but the overall result is somewhat disappointing.

    Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype is a rather classic shooter, which bases its appeal on those elements that fans of the genre know better: upgradeable weapons, huge bosses, nice levels and a large number of enemies who do nothing but shoot at us. Though its solid gameplay, however, Final Prototype lacks of original ideas and it's way too short.

    Given the technical quality and the excellent matchmaking, Archetype is definitely worth a try for all FPS fans out there. The controls are great, the action is fluid and there is a good number of well-balanced weapons. The matches via Wi-Fi work very well and we experienced very few latency problems. Unfortunately, you can only play team deathmatch on five maps, so the game becomes repetitive very soon.

    Chopper 2 is a total evolution from the first episode: better graphic, more missions, more variety but the same fun. However, it's still just a simply arcade game; but if you are looking for an immediate and fun iPhone game, it could be the right choice.

    Solomon's Keep is an action RPG based on randomness: random dungeons, random skill levels and random enemies. The result is a nice game, but the level design is unfortunately repetitive. Considering the budget price, for action-RPG lovers it can be a good buy.

    Imperial Academy is a good online First Person Shooter, with just one big problem: the controls. Movements are very difficult, and there isn't a dedicated fire button; however, it's free (but full of ads), with no lag also in 3G, so for FPS lovers download is recommended.

    The new MotoGP has a lot of good things in it: the Career mode is rich and exciting, while physics and sense of speed are really improved. The gameplay is pretty similar to the one in MotoGP 09/10, but the possibility to turn several driving assists off provides a deeper and more satisfying experience. Unfortunately the graphics is still lacking and the opponents' AI is absolutely awful.

    In The Witcher: Versus our goal is to create a sequence of attack and defense that the opponent can't overcome.

    Even if it steals many ideas from other platforms, Kami Retro is a pretty fresh game, thanks to its colourful graphics and a catchy chiptune music.

    On the one hand, Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 is visually pleasing, with some nice remixes and a gameplay based on exploration rather than combat (just like the original Bionic Commando), nice boss fights and some funny dialogues.

    Rayman 3D is a perfect conversion of Rayman 2: The Great Escape. Problem is, it is a game from 1999, and, while it remains quite good by today's standards, there are lot of chances you've already played this game in a form or another.

    Rabbids 3D starts with great promises, only to withdraw them later in the game, when the player realizes that design and difficulty never evolve so much from semi-tutorial levels.

    Fast Five the Movie: Official Game is nice racing game with very good graphics, a rich career mode and an online multiplayer mode for up to ten players.

    After a false start, Hunted: The Demon's Forge delivers some good things along the way. The game let you choose which character you wish to play from a certain point on, though you can't switch from Caddoc to E'lara anytime.

    Explodemon! is a decent action platformer which bases its gameplay on the explosions and does it pretty well.

    Spider-Man: Edge of Time for Wii offers a curious mix of good and bad: on the one hand, a well-written storyline, a great upgrade system, an excellent taste of Spider-Man's powers and a challenging gameplay; on the other, a chaotic and cumbersome control system, lots of camera problems and glitches. You can certainly come to terms with the latter and enjoy the first, but it's clear that the final result will leave a bitter aftertaste in your mouth.

    Go Vacation is no doubt one of the best family games for Wii, thanks to its open world gameplay and the fifty minigames included. You can reach the place of your next activity by riding an ATV or a waterbike, and play with up to three friends via split-screen, and that's cool. What's not-so-cool is the overall quality of the minigames themselves, since some of them are boring.
