    What Criterion Games has done with Hot Pursuit is immediately visible when you start the new Need for Speed. There are several problems within the gameplay starting with few races modes and too much aliasing on screen. Other than these imperfections Hot Pursuit is a wonderful arcade racing game that everyone can really enjoy.

    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.

    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.

    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. This is a serious nominee for 2009 “best game no one ever played” award.

    The are several flaws in the gameplay starting from the light plot to the unusual checkpoints and savegames system and the minimal multiplayer. But at the same time RAGE does its work as a wonderful first person shooter and the racing section works well too.

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

    Relic has done a wonderful job with this original and innovative RTS, cleaning away the strategy archetypes we're used to playing with. But sadly there are several deficiencies, starting with the repetitive missions and a difficult to master multiplayer. A must buy for strategic fans but not the perfect title we were looking for.

    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. But still, the game is so much fun and retain the core gameplay of the series, with an excellent made single player and the smell of the race passion in every bit of the code.

    SPY mouse is a riskless project for Firemint, less ambitious than Real Racing 2 but more suitable for casual users. It's still a very enjoyable and polished game, but ordinary boss battles and the lack of support for Game Center leaderboards and achievements are small flaws that could have been avoided.

    So many times we have heard speaking of Pokémon as a game for children, a B-series RPG. So false. 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. Too bad it keeps recycling itself: HeartGold and SoulSilver are the best issues in the series but at the same time they do not offer anything really new to newcomers and old fans, aside for a cute device.
