    A great handheld game with a few minor issues. In the end, there's definitely a lack of content and frankly, some minigames are flatout boring. But a great graphical presentation and incredibly smooth controls make this game rise above its shortcomings.

    One of the best Pac-Man games you can get at the moment. The game looks pretty nice, the gameplay is oldschool but fun and it works great on the PlayStation 3. Beside the classic Pac-Man gameplay the game contains a lot of different modes to keep you playing.

    Dead Space 2 is a game every (horror) fan of the first hour has to pick up. The gameplay is a bit more action orientated, but still creepy as it was in the first part of the franchise. Besides a fantastic singleplayer there is also a good and fun-to-play multiplayer mode.

    The Madden franchise is in this part back on the top. The gameplay is great and more accessible than before. It has a few gameplay improvements and that also counts for the graphics and audio. Madden NFL 11 is since 2005 the best installment in the franchise!

    Kratos' PSP adventures are superbly ported to the PS3. It's a little short and those who've played both games on the handheld won't find anything new here, but other than that it's right up there with Kratos' previous PS3 adventures.

    A genius tribute to the Beatles. The game lets you walk the first steps of The Beatles to the biggest moments of their career. Colorful graphics and brilliant audio combined with traditional gameplay makes The Beatles: Rock Band a great game.

    Polyphony Digital delivers one hell of a game with Gran Turismo 5. It contains lots of cars and tracks and new features like the special section are great. The gameplay however didn't change, so that means you have to race all the well known cups and championships. Still a great game, but it's a shame the AI is way too bad for a PlayStation 3 game.

    Stacking is a really unique and good game. You have to play with matroesjka's and that delivers a game which is completely original. The setting, the story, the gameplay all of it is great. This means that you can buy this game without any problem.

    An exciting first episode for what will hopefully - and after playing this game probably - be a great series. It captures that particular style we've come to know and love from the comics and manages to expand on the already satisfying story of the TV-series. A must-play for The Walking Dead fans.

    The Capcom and Marvel characters are combined in this fighting game, were you have to fight against two evil persons that want to combine the two worlds. The story isn't really interesting, but the gameplay on the otherhand is. This is a great fighting game with very good gameplay and a fine graphical style. After ten years this third part is really great!

    Braid is a Xbox 360 game that has found its way to the European PlayStation 3 gamers. It’s a little bit too late, but it is still a game that you have to play. It’s got a challenging gameplay set-up and is at the same time exciting, funny and addictive. A very good platform game with time elements and great puzzles.

    This is what Mario on a Sony platform would feel like… without the groovy moustache (and limbs for that matter). It's a shame Ubisoft did not include the co-op though and why implement touch options when it's more practical to use the traditional control scheme?

    One of the best racing games this year. The game has an extreme good feeling of speed, it feels realistic and to complete the campaign will take weeks. Need for Speed: SHIFT was a good game, but this is a lot better because Slightly Mad Studios did listen to the feedback of the community.

    Another great game of Tim Schafer. It has really great humor, nice and original gameplay. A brilliant soundtrack and pretty nice graphics.

    A fine PSP game on the PSP. The minigames were better on the Nintendo DS, but the PSP version is graphically better than the Nintendo DS version. Buy this part if you don’t own a Nintendo DS. Do you have a Nintendo DS? Buy the Nintendo DS version.

    The concept of Patapon still stands like a house. The gameplay is more of the same with important but little improvements to make it fun to play for the third time. The gameplay is very deep, the graphics are nice and the audio can be really annoying, but sounds good at the same time. The third Patapon game is just like the two previous ones - a fine game.

    NHL 11 is more of the same, because the game plays exactly like the previous parts. The game contains a lot of different modes and has a lot of small improvements which make it a little bit better than NHL 10. Visually it looks stunning, the soundtrack and audience are good to listen to and the gameplay is as always fantastic.

    This game has a few points that makes this game a must buy for every Final Fantasy fan. It has a lot of gameplay, well known characters, good story and a lot more.

    DeathSpank is a great mix of different game types. The game has RPG elements in it, but is in its base a hack and slash title full of stupid humor. If you're looking for an original PlayStation Network game with a lot of different possibilities and a long duration of gaming, then DeathSpank is a great choice.

    The short singleplayer campaign is disappointing, but we've come to expect that from the Battlefield franchise. Online this third iteration is still among the best shooters out there, even though we feel like DICE has made too much changes in an attempt to attract hardened Call of Duty fans.

    It's definitely not for everyone, but Catherine is a unique and challenging game that will leave you impressed and wanting more, even though you will likely have experienced quite a lot of frustration by the time you reach the end credits.

    This new episode takes you to Ibiza instead of Hawaii and the gameplay is as usual extremely grotesk. The game is full with exotic cars, has a lot of roads to race on and of course fun! This time you can do more with the racing-clubs and there is also a pretty decent level-system. Did you like the first part? Or are you looking for a fine racing game, then Test Drive Unlimited 2 is the one to get.

    One of the best Vita launch games and the best puzzle game of 2012 so far, period. It's a shame the touch controls don't always work as well as they should, but overall this is a minor complaint.

    Who wouldn't like the powers The Darkness has to offer? Okay, maybe our priest wouldn't. The Darkness II provides even more gruesome and gory fun than its predecessor and is overall the better game. Unfortunately, the often underwhelming enemy AI and the insultingly short length of the campaign somewhat spoil the fun.

    DJ Hero is brand new in the music game genre and at its first arrival directly good. The gameplay is different and challenging but also fun. The game has got a brilliant soundtrack, a lot of playable modes and you can also use your Guitar Hero controller in cooperative gameplay.

    Outland is a mix of different good elements from different games. The graphical style is a bit floating, the audio sounds magical and the gameplay can be really tough but is good. Every gamer that will enjoy playing a pretty hard platform game must buy Outland.

    Marvel Pinball is a decent pinball game with a few different pinball machines, completely in the style of Marvel characters. The game is easy and nice to play and if you like to play pinball, this is the game to get. It's only a shame there aren't really much different tables to play on.

    A challenging fighter with smooth controls and stylish visuals. You won't find a story worth telling here, but we have yet to find a Blazblue fan who gives a damn. Buy this if you have a Vita and like fighting games.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 is like the previous games once again a great game. It has a few new great features like the True Aim and Focus features. The gameplay is the same like the last part with the new options and that makes this game great. The graphics and audio are also very good and the Ryder Cup is a great new tournament.

    The sequel of Dissidia: Final Fantasy is also a great game. The soundtrack is awesome, the time you need to complete the game is huge and it looks graphically great. But it's kind of strange the game doesn't offer to play with the original voice-acting, the English voice-acting isn't really great and the story could have been a bit better.
