    A good story gets swallowed by a lot of bad gameplay. It's a shame really, since Martin's amazing novels would make a great game in the right hands. [June 2012]

    Iron Front – Liberation 1944 will be a new, evolving paint canvas for the multiplayer Arma-crowd. For other gamers it is mostly a confusing mess. [June 2012]

    Amazing Alex has a nice idea, but the levels are far too easy. Most of them can be completed without any thought whatsoever. Alex itself is one of the most annoying know-it-alls in recent memory and the game would be more enjoyable without his smug little face. [Sept 2012]

    The latest offering in the Ratchet & Clank series fails to innovate, instead opting to blend overused formulas that other games have done better. The current road for the series seems bleaker with every passing installment. [Jan 2013]

    Strategic part is about as exiting as Excel, but that's what you get when you have no enemies and no fear of losing. The idea on turn-based combat is to create a system of many variables, not a turn based version of simplistic real time battle. The new XCOM got it wrong, too, so please copy the old masters, don't please the simpletons. [March 2013]

    A prime example of a gamified action film from the eighties. The story is only an excuse for bloodshed and the game is far from unconventional. Yes, I've seen this before at least dozens of times, but then again, there's always room for some good old-fashioned pointless violence. [May 2013]

    Evoland is a frustrating affair. Its premise is great and it has potential to spare, but instead of an inspired retro journey all you get is a combination of lazy jokes, bland Zelda-esque gameplay and numbingly tedious JRPG battles. [June 2013]

    If you ever played an fps game, you've seen almost everything that Fuse offers. Co-op for four players is a nice idea and in theory the futuristic weaponry offers you four different ways to play the game. Unfortunately the dull level design, generic enemies and the basic setting that has been seen at least thousand times make sure, that this summer shooter is quickly forgotten. [Aug 2013]

    Defiance is essentially a single player shooter, that has been retrofitted to an MMOFPS. The multiplayer component doesn't really add anything to the game, if you don't count some random back-up crews as such. [Aug 2013]

    Star Wars Pinball is a classic game, based on the George Lucas' Universe. The table Design is inspired and everything works fine, but the annoying bug with the wifi connection must be addressed as soon as possible.

    Simplified flying is not even remotely as grabbing as tank battles. [Dec 2013]

    Lightning Returns shows us a flashy new wardrobe but looks still rule over personality. Sadly Lightnings chance of clothes does nothing for the lack of her personality. Overall it is enjoyable, but messy story and flimsy characters don't do it any favours. [March 2014]

    French indie developer tries to engage adult audience with this RPG. Too bad the world is generic and script is dull as a wooden blade. If you show a few tits and curse like a sailor, that don't translate to a game for adults. On top of that the game mechanics are dull and repetitive. You don't challenge Witcher with this kind of setup. [June 2014]

    Much too static and scripted and requires unearthly patience. What is the point in stalking if no one does anything without the stalker doing something first? [Dec 2005]

    Beneath the Ashes is short, but well paced mini-larathon which offers nothing really new. Lara’s Shadow is a little bit interesting case, but messing with deadly blue liquid is really frustrating. There are also annoying level re-runs, but generally both adventures offers sturdy but brief Tomb Raider experience. [May 2009]

    Mario and his friends take on yet another sports game. This time the game revolves around basketball, ice hockey, dodge ball and volley ball. The selection is slim, but only half of the package work as it should. Still it's been sold for a full price. [May 2011]

    Star Trek isn't as bad as they say, although the game has more than it's share of problems. The story is nice, but the game itself is filled with stupidities. For a duo of trekkies this game offers ADHD thrill ride for a weekend. If Star Trek doesn't get your juices flowing, you better steer clear. [June 2013[

    A defining moment for iOS platforming games. The virtual controls have never before felt this responsive. One could expect nothing less from the creator of Cave Story. [June 2014]

    Soul Calibur: Lost Swords is a crappy free-2-play version of a great beat-em up game. [June 2014]

    TMNT seems to have been rushed out to support the movie’s release. The result is an uninspired action game with a shattered plot line and boring fights. The acrobatic sections have their moments, and the co-operation of the turtles holds some promise. [Apr 2007]

    A decent enough action-adventure in the vein of GTA and Crackdown. Spider-Man's web-slinging abilities are depicted very well. Go for the Xbox 360 version, the rest are not worth your time. [June 2007]

    A disappointing console cenversion for a fairly entertaining real-time strategy. The otherwise decent multiplatformer is gimped by massive framerate issues and technical problems. [May 2008]

    Finally, decent use for a classic controller. There is really nothing new, but everything works smoothly just like a train's toilet. Galaxies is also the most deepest and richest Geometry Wars experience made so far. [Mar 2008]

    The controls work well but otherwise the single player game is a waste of time. The multiplayer part of the game is decent however. It's very old fashioned but the Wiimote controls make it seem fresh for a while. Multiplayer games are large and mostly free of lag. Too bad there's no voice communication. [Apr 2008]

    A straight port from PSP-version. Compared to previous PS2 games, controls are cluncky and graphics are very rough. Story is still quite funny, but everything else has been seen before. Size matters, but the bigger is not better. [Apr 2008]

    This game isn't a Thriller. It's actually much closer to Bad. The motion controls aren't as Smooth as Criminal and the low difficulty level makes me stop before I get enough. The way this game makes me feel is somewhat mixed, because The Experience is occasionally fun replacement for aerobic. If a game made from the King of Pop generates to an muscle exercise, does it do justice for the memory of a legend? [May 2011]

    The second season of Kinect Sports doesn't really offer anything original or inspired, it's just a collection of sports mini-games. Some of them are mildly entertaining (Golf), while others are over-simplified and boring (Tennis). All in all, Season Two is an extremely casual gaming experience that offers neither fresh ideas nor precise motion control. [Dec 2011]

    I dared to hope, but was given a game so dull and average, that is an actual achievement itself. [March 2013]
