    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. But it has several good irons in the fire, and the mix of humour and completeness recalls some classics like Bullfrog's Theme Hospital. Well, come to think of it, it's so comprehensive that it would deserve to be released on PC.

    Counter Strike: Global Offensive it's a well balanced mixture of classic and new element, both well suited for the Half Life mod veterans and newbie. And for 10.99 euros, it's really a must have.

    This ReMIX ha undoubtedly great value packed in, and it is a must-buy for any Kingdom Hearts fan as well for newcomers. Sure, Square-Enix could have put some more efforts in the Birth by Sleep port.

    Resogun is a small but brilliant launch title for PlayStation 4 and you shouldn’t miss it. Perhaps it has only one single problem: the contents are too few and you’ll have seen everything of it in a couple of hours.

    The Binding of Isaac is a small game with very simple mechanics, but it will catch you with its huge amount of contents, great soundtrack and polished graphics. Eventually the flow of new items and bosses will start ending, but before then, those are indeed the best five bucks you can spend in a while.

    Tomb Raider is a highly accomplished reboot, and the term Definitive Edition goes well with this version of the game. The setting is excellent, the character's transformation is emotional and effective, and the pacing and variety of the gameplay are top notch. The Definitive Edition really is definitive but isn't worth a repeat buy for those who've already experienced Lara's story.

    Super Smash Bros. hit handheld gaming after fifteen years, and it's as great as usual, even without a bulletproof single-player mode. This isn't a [90] just because offline multiplayer - with only one cartridge - has been omitted.

    Kid Icarus: Uprising is a great first birthday present for the 3DS; a game with a stunning amount of content, and a quality that shows clearly the great commitment of the Sakurai's Team. Only the tiring controls and some level design issues prevent the game from being a truly masterpiece.

    After almost all of the survival horror aspects have been removed, what's left is just another action game, which is a bit too similar to the fourth chapter. Cooperative play is what makes Resident Evil 5's day, but fans' expectations were really high and this new episode is "just" an excellent and fun game, especially for the ones who fell in love with the saga some years ago.

    Shattered Memories is actually a reinterpretation of the very first Silent Hill game. We still don't know if this is a new beginning for the series or an isolated experiment, however Climax did a great job putting together an unique atmosphere, a lot of interesting solutions and a smart use of the motion-sensitive controls. One of the best and most adult experiences on Wii so far.

    Despite the lack of innovation, Guitar Hero 5 delivers plenty of game modes, an almost perfect multiplayer (both local and online) and the same old gameplay we all know and love. The tracklist is huge, and we can play the songs at different levels, with different instruments. Those who have already spent hundreds of hours with the series might find this new episode unattractive, but it's worth a try anyway.
