    As a shooter, Spec Ops: The Line disappoints. The coversystem is a constant source of frustration and the hit detection is way off. On top of that, the multiplayer is generally uninteresting. However, as a story-drive singleplayer experience, the game shines like few have before it.

    A great tactical RPG that more or less mixes the turn-based combat of the early Final Fantasy games with the strategic joy that was Vandal Hearts. It's not the best game ever – among others, the story is lacking – but we definitely recommend it to fans of the genre.

    Weak graphics and underpopulated servers aside, Anarchy Reigns is a great game. The strong story and extensive multiplayer are the main draws.

    The frame-rate isn't great and apparently the camera wants to kill you, but otherwise this is a great send-off for the Assassin's Creed franchise on the last-gen consoles. The environments are varied and your role as a templar is interesting. Definitely recommended.

    As expected, the Borderlands franchise translates perfectly into Telltales' series format. Fondly recommended.

    A fun and extremely tactical shooter with teammates that actually aren't idiots…. or that is mostly the case. We can't shake the feeling that the game isn't completely "finished", but that doesn't keep us from giving Ghost Recon: Future Soldier a strong recommendation.

    It's not a huge game in terms of context, but the highly enjoyable gameplay makes it well worth the wait.

    When Viking's Attack is a fun little game, ideally played in short sessions. It looks and plays fine, with cross-platform options (if you buy the PS3 or the Vita version, you get the other one as well) available to extend playability. Not the most impressive title ever, but definitely good for a couple of laughs.

    It's a well-made game, especially in co-op, but repetitive gameplay and a story that fails to intrigue keeps it from becoming something truly great. As of now, Destiny unfortunately hasn't reached its full potential yet.

    This is essentially a twelve-hour long episode of South Park, with sadistic humour, a huge amount of fan-service, classic turn-based gameplay and Variation with a capital V. It's a great game, though we did notice an unhealthy amount of bugs and framerate issues. We're also severely disappointed by the European censorship, which is completely unnecessary.

    A lot more tense than the previous episode, with a nice balance between dialogue, action and looting. It's a bit shorter than we're used to, though the decrease in framerate issues more than makes up for it.

    It's a shame the controls aren't very responsive and we grew tired of the framedrops by the end of the episode, though if you're willing to overlook that, you'll get a great premiere to what promises to be another brilliant season of the Walking Dead videogame. Prepare to be emotionally wrecked, guys - 'cause you sure as hell will be.

    A well-made fighting game with enough content to keep the disc spinning in your PS3 for months to come. Lackluster AI and wooden animations, however, keep WWE '13 from getting more praise.

    Finally a truly decent Lord of the Rings game, with an intriguing story, quality gameplay and exciting setting.

    A fantastic online multiplayer mode and a disappointing singleplayer? Sounds like Battlefield, all right. Don't expect any huge graphical leaps either, just a fabulous and highly destructive - Levolution is a blast! - online experience.

    The singleplayer is spectacular, but rather short. The online multiplayer is huge and highly addictive. No surprises there. New additions to the franchise either manage to deliver a surprisingly fun experience (Extinction) or a slightly disappointing spin on the known multiplayer formula (Squads).

    Thou shalt not touch Naked Snake!!! No, seriously, the touchscreen features in this game are terrible. Other than that, this collection is perfectly recommendable to gamers who don't own the PS3 edition. We would, however, like to know why Peace Walker wasn't included into the package.

    A great sequel, which successfully expands the universe created in its predecessor. Visually, Skylanders Giants isn't that impressive though.

    A nice-looking, interesting Assassin's Creed Experience on Sony's handheld. If not for messy storytelling, random game-overs and a lacklustre multiplayer, it would have been a Vita classic.

    A remake of a remake that stands on its own on the PlayStation Vita.

    Sly Cooper is back and the old raccoon is as fun as he has ever been. The platform gameplay is addicting, even if it lacks any real challenge. The story is interesting, even if the humor feels a bit forced (and childish) at times. In the end, Thieves in time is a fun game for children and adults alike... it just doesn't reach the lofty heights of its predecessors.

    Kojima's Fox Engine makes PES 2014 look pretty, but won't keep FIFA from crowning itself "footie of the year". The main culprits? An unhealthy amount of framedrops and once again a sore lack of licenses.

    The entire Marvel universe is contained in this LEGO-fuelled action adventure and it's a simple, but highly effective title. If you've played previous LEGO games, you'll know what to expect: a lot of fun for everyone.

    The absence of Birth by Sleep is both remarkable and disappointing, and it's definitely a shame we can't play Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Other than that, however, this is pretty much the ultimate collection for Kingdom Hearts fans, seeing as it enables them to finally follow up on the story appropriately.

    Even though the story is hard to get into, consider it worth the wait when you do. Not only does the game have different endings, all ways to get there are intertwined. It's a touching and very challenging game that keeps you guessing whether you made the right decision or not, but don't feel surprised if it turns out to be both.

    Kickbeat is quite addicting, with it's beat'm-up-with-guitar-hero-influences gameplay and its wonderful soundtrack. Watch out for certain level of frustration though, as it's rather hard to make up for earlier mistakes and the boss fights are at times terribly unclear.

    Wonderbook: Book of Spells is the first game for Sony's new Wonderbook system and therefore has to be good in order to sell the device. Fortunately, the game delivers in almost every way, aiming at young gamers and implementing augmented reality and the PlayStation Move superbly. Based on the Harry Potter universe (and co-produced by J.K. Rowling) this game will also give Potter fans a kick with its magical atmosphere.

    Business as usual... though this time Traveller's Tales has added some much needed improvements and additions to the otherwise solid formula of the LEGO games. If you're a fan of either The Hobbit or the LEGO franchise, you should definitely check this out.

    Superfrog HD means the return of an old hero and this is a comeback to remember. The game consists of old and new levels and is rendered in full-on HD. The story is a lot of fun and the same can be said of the atmosphere and the presence of a cross-buy feature. We loved that you are able to create your own levels, though it is a bit of a shame that you can't upload them to the PlayStation Network.

    Nostalgia, dear old friend... How have you been? It's a blast to see you're still as awesome as we remember, though we could have done without the glitches and disappointing backgrounds.
