    NBA 2K14 next-gen incarnation arrives with many highs and a few lows. On the plus side it achieves an incredible technical goal and the revamped My Player mode with The Park, dedicated to those who love to play fast online games. Less impressive is the same old playability.

    Gran Turismo 6 is a nice evolution over the previous chapter, Polyphony has learned how to deal with the interface and has upgraded the physics and the handling of the cars.

    Conviction can't be the perfect epilogue for the saga. The new Sam Fisher's adventure is well structured, with a fluid and fast gameplay and an intricate and addictive plot but it has several technical glitches and imperfections.

    Relic has done a wonderful job with this original and innovative RTS, cleaning away the strategy archetypes we're used to playing with.

    MadWorld is an awesome action game, filled to the top with stylish graphics, exaggerated violence and black humour: it is indeed the kind of product that the Wii hardcore gamers were waiting for, but the biggest part of the audience won’t event notice it.

    Patapon 2 maintains the mechanics and atmosphere of the first chapter, but it's further then its natural evolution. In comparison to the original title it has in fact brought on our PSP a series of options, additional formality, variety and complexity that decidedly bring it to a superior level in comparison to the simplest rhythm game with strategic elements that we knew.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a great game, but not as great as we expected. The revamped multiplayer and new spec ops are worth the price, but the single player is too much similar to the first episode and it lacks the excellence of the story telling of Modern Warfare.

    Seabass and Konami finally made big changes inside the PES formula, with many improvements in every aspect and a great atmosphere surrounding their production.

    Gran Turismo 5 is marked by many highs and lows in every aspect of the game. It looks like Polyphony (what a joke) needed a bit more time to polish everything and put more attention to the online part.

    RAGE is no doubt a great game. It's exciting, keeps you enthralled for hours, has an excellent combat system and some very good AI. The boundary elements such as the races are more entertaining than what you'd expect, and the single player campaign lasts at least 15 hours. However, from a technical standpoint id's last effort could really disappoint the ones who were expecting something more.

    The World Ends with You: Solo Remix is a more than welcome release on the App Store, taking one of the best recent Jrpg to the iOS platform.

    Overall, PES 2009 is a better, more refined and complete experience than before.

Whoever spent a few hours on any issue of the franchise will surely agree on the excellent quality of one of the best and most addictive RPGs on the market.

    Game Dev Story is certainly one of the best simulation games on the App Store to date. Sadly it's not really optimized for iPhone and it lacks Game Center support or any other social feature.
