    Murdered: Soul Suspect has a unique concept and backs it up with an intriguing story and a mysterious game world you'll want to explore. Disappointing graphics and slightly unoriginal gameplay keep it from becoming a game to die for, but it's still worth your time and money.

    Capcom once more improves upon the original Street Fighter IV with some tweaks and characters lifted from Street Fighter X Tekken. It's not quite new anymore, but fans will definitely want to pick this up.

    Entwined manages to be both relaxing and challenging, and convinced us with an appealing visual style, interesting audio design and addictive gameplay. Low points include the rather short length of the game and the at times inaccurate controls.

    Newcomers will find MotoGP 14 a difficult experience to jump into and the graphics aren't as appealing as they should be. All things considered, though, this is a very decent racing experience, one that fans of the sport cannot afford to miss.

    A unique concept that uses all of Sony's handheld features in a creative way. If you own a Vita and like puzzle games, you might want to consider this, even though some of the moves you need to do in order to play Metrico aren't exactly advisable to do in public.

    It's a short game and the 3D perspective is lacking at times. However, those are the only flaws in an otherwise highly enjoyable title in a well-designed Cold War setting. Recommended.

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

    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.

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

    Finally, a PlayStation Move game that seems to matter. It's a bit too short and also a bit too simple, but in the end you will remember this colorful platform game as an enriching Move experience.

    Tokyo Jungle delivers on a highly unique premise. It's an extremely enjoyable experience, even if mediocre visuals and repetitive gameplay keep it from becoming an instant classic.

    Definitely not the best anime adaptation, but also not the worst. There's a lot of fun to be had with One Piece... if you're willing to overlook the annoying camera and an incomplete story.

    A fun game to play with friends, even if the PlayStation Move controls don't always work the way they should.

    As fun as brain trainers can get. The lack of offline multiplayer options and some control issues, however, keep Smart As... firmly grounded in mediocrity.

    A unique style, challenging puzzles, a fun story and strong level-design make PiD a well-made platform game. Long loading times, an often frustrating difficulty curve and disappointing audio keep it from being a truly great one.

    Well, at least it's a lot better than we thought it would be, with its fun gameplay mechanics, attractive visual style and well-developed multiplayer modes. F1 Race Stars is, however, a bit too repetitive and isn't as packed with content as we'd hoped, which makes it a little difficult to recommend.

    Zone of the Enders HD is a great collection. The first one feels a bit dated and simplistic, but the second one is definitely one of the best mech games ever made. If you've never played these and find yourself intrigued by the concept, don't hesitate to buy it.

    This trilogy is a great example of too little, too late. Don’t get us wrong: Agent 47 and all his perils mashed into a trilogy pack make for a great way to spend your day, but it should have released before Absolution. With the physics being completely outdated and the so-so graphics, it drains our primitive need to play. We just play for old times’ sake and we still love it.

    With some extra features Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is certainly recommendable. The gameplay is fine and the visuals are nice, even if they're at times a little bland. The voice-acting's also a bit hit-and-miss. On top of that, fans won't like the low difficulty this game displays. Consider these complaints before buying a copy.

    For the first time ever a game is ported from the Nintendo 3DS to the PlayStation 3. We're happy to report that this strange enterprise has turned out to be successful. The classical RE gameplay is back; claustrophobic and exciting! There's hardly any extra's and the price is a bit steep, but fans of Resident Evil shouldn't hesitate about buying this.

    Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery is an episodic title and the first episode has recently been released. There's a lot of text to tell the story and there's a couple of difficult puzzles to get through. Long story short: this is a fun PlayStation Vita game, available at a low price.

    Jak and Daxter finally appear on Sony's handheld and their original trilogy remains a lot of fun. There's some annoyances here and there (framedrops and other technical hick-ups), but you should be able to overlook these flaws.

    Stealth Bastard born anew on PlayStation Vita offers a challenge that is both captivating and frustrating.

    For once LEGO builds its own story (pun intended) instead of relying on movie licenses. The result is a fun, but not exactly innovating game that doesn't fully utilize the Vita's features. Why change a winning team?

    It took awhile, but finally the west gets to experience Tales of Xillia. Overall, we'd say that's a good thing - even though the game knows its ups and downs. The style is intoxicating, but the presentation of it rather mediocre. The story is interesting, but rather slow. The depth of the gameplay is Tales of Xillia's biggest plus. It's by no means a perfect games, but we nevertheless recommend it. Fans of the Tales of... franchise shouldn't think twice.

    This is definitely one hell of a weird experience. The art style is magnificent, the combat exhilarating and the soundtrack interesting. Interesting is also an apt word to describe the humor in the game. However, the level design is rather repetitive and the much advertised 'gigolo' missions are rather limited in options. If you liked similar titles like No More Heroes and Lollipop Chainsaw, you might just like Killer is Dead, if you're willing to overlook its flaws.

    Square Enix has learned from the failed release of Final Fantasy XIV and delivers an update worth playing. A Realm Reborn is an extremely enjoyable, if a bit repetitive MMO, the score of which is brought down by an unhealthy amount of framedrops, mediocre voice-acting and the lack of PvP.

    While still being a great racing game, we were not too convinced by F1 2013. Yes, the career mode is properly fleshed-out (though we've seen it all before) and the classic mode is a nice addition to the franchise, though we could do without the weird paywall construction that demands players to pay extra for all the content. The visuals are also rather boring and the game's intro aims perhaps a bit too much at franchise rookies, which might annoy experienced players.

    It's good, not great. Knack is the icon of the PlayStation 4, but makes an uncertain impression in his first adventure. As a platformer, Knack is a lot of fun, but also very basic. It's addicting, to be sure, but an uninteresting story and a lack of both variation and innovation keep the game from earning a truly high mark.

    Proteus is a game without a clear goal. In fact, we're not sure whether there is a purpose to it at all. You're just wandering around a deserted island, that is generated at random for every new playthrough. Still, in a strange way, Proteus is very satisfying and not just because there are Trophies to earn. It's a bizarre, relaxed experience, though it definitely isn't for everyone.
