    DOOM is an awesome return to form, not just for the franchise but also for the old school shooter genre. A triumph, held back only by lengthy loading times and a slight lack of depth in the single-player campaign. Not that these nitpicks matter when you're shooting demons left and right with a big grin on your face.

    A tribute to the eighties, Hotline Miami impresses with a fantastic soundtrack, dito graphics and a fair amount of challenge to keep hardcore gamers busy for days to come.

    Konami shoots, Konami scores. As long as you mute the commentary track, that is.

    Some pop-up and framerate issues are the only problems we've encountered, which is on itself quite spectacular. Assassin's Creed III is an interesting new step for the franchise, delivering a competent story, a number of great gameplay improvements and mind-blowing naval missions.

    If you're a fan of the previous editions, you should definitely get this. The stories and atmosphere are still great and the graphical updates really add to the experience. However, the camera's still lacking in places, which is a shame.

    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.

    Traditional gameplay, intense and varied levels, nice visuals and an engaging soundtrack... What more could you wish for?

    A fantastic reimagination of a PlayStation 2 classic, Ratchet and Clank once again represents Insomniac at the height of its game.

    While still being a fun game, Far Cry 4 at times feels a bit too much like an extended edition of Far Cry 3 to really impress.

    Subtle improvements and a batch of new features keep Blazblue on track, though its graphics are in dire need of an upgrade.

    A lot of people have complained about the look of the new Devil May Cry and frankly, they should just play the game instead. Ninja Theory has changed things up quite a bit, but they haven't touched the core of the franchise. DmC is an excellent hack & slash game which has a few problems, but then again: nobody's perfect.

    FIFA 17 is wonderful; the graphics are improved, the gameplay works better and The Journey is an interesting addition.

    Thumper is a fast-paced experience that will challenge you. It plays well in virtual reality and looks great. Long story short: one of the better - if not the best - PlayStation VR launch games out there.

    Still as much of a tactical joy as you remember. Very much worth picking up (again).

    Persona 4 Arena was a fine spin-off and this new iteration continues the trend with more depth and a longer story mode, that, however, lacks a bit of gameplay action. Newcomers are strongly advised to start with the previous one, by the way.

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

    This is one of the few truly unique titles on the PlayStation Vita and you should definitely buy it. It's not perfect - save synching doesn't work the way it should and we sure would have wanted some more albums to lengthen the running time - but then again: nothing really is.

    Dark Souls in 2D? Yes, please!

    It's not spectacularly innovating and the graphics are in dire need of improvement, but other than that NBK 2K14 manages to tweak its gameplay enough to justify the new installment in the franchise. We could do without the clumsy menus and stupid dialogue, though.

    A great race game, which definitely puts EA's Need For Speed franchise back on the map.

    Storywise, it's the logical evolution of Human Revolution, but it's gameplay is recycling its predecessor here and there. That's not a bad thing, though the framerate issues are a little less easy to forgive.

    Lone Survivor might just be the purest survival horror game of this generation, leaving the player to desperately fend for himself, without offering him any clear information whatsoever on what's going on. One-man developer Jasper Byrne manages to use what are essentially GameBoy Color graphics to his advantage, suggesting horrors rather than flatout confronting the player with them, and expertly using creepy sound design to strengthen the experience. The map mechanics suck and it's a shame the game doesn't last very long, but horror fans can't go wrong with Lone Survivor.

    Well, this is The Walking Dead alright and as a game it's a lot better than Telltales' Jurassic Park. It's not perfect, though, as the lip-synch is often a bit off and the overall length of the game leaves you wanting more. A lot more.

    Housemarque once more delivers an exciting and highly addictive launch game. Renogun is truly brilliant, showing off some impressive graphics, intuitive gameplay and challenging level design. A must have for every PlayStation 4 owner.

    Worth the wait, Final Fantasy XV turns out to be the anti-Duke Nukem Forever, in that it actually delivers on most - if not all - of its promises.

    Technically, this game isn't superb. Luckily, every other aspect of The Walking Dead Episode 2: Starved for Help is. Bloody action, though choices and a great story with well-developed characters make this well worth your while.

    It still isn't that original, it still isn't that deep and some bugs and glitches kept spoiling the fun. Still, Darksiders II is a massive adventure with an epic story and gigantic, interesting worlds to explore. An improvement on the first one and overall a game nobody should pass on.

    A truly wonderful - some might even call it "transcendent" - experience, unnecessarily hampered by an annoying camera and clunky controls.

    Finally this tower defense game, which already appeared for the PSP and the PS3 earlier on, becomes available for the PlayStation Vita. The graphics are slightly more detailed and the touch features work fine, so if you haven't bought this game for any of the other systems yet, you should definitely give this version a try.

    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.
