    A brilliant concept is hampered by a limited amount of content, while playing online doesn't have nearly as much charm as playing on the couch with a couple of friends does.

    While Burning Skies in fact proves that the Vita is capable of handling the First Person Shooter genre, the game in itself leaves much to be desired. A weak story, an uninteresting online multiplayer and an overall lack of polish keep it from reaching the lofty heights the franchise deserves.

    F1 2014 feels like a step back when compared to the previous game in the franchise, especially since the classic mode has been left out this time around. It's still a fine racing game, but fans might want to wait for the next one.

    A bit simple and short, but there's loads of potential here. Let's see what the future holds.

    A nice little experience in-between AAA games, though the repetitive nature might severely limit the fun.

    Not entirely a puzzle game, Chime Sharp puts a lot of emphasis on agility and adds a truly enjoyable soundtrack to the mix. Yet the puzzles are needlessly confusing at times due to the game's colour scheme and the ever-running timer cranks up the frustration.

    A remarkable co-op shooter that's especially enjoyable with friends, though this version is still plagued by the problems that downgraded the PS3 edition's quality. Shame, 'cause with all downloadable content included in the package, this really isn't such a bad deal.

    A fun, if slightly generic and uninteresting adventure with decent gameplay, Earthlock: Festival of Magic is not exactly a title to remember.
    • 75 Metascore

    An enormous level must mean an enormous amount of things to do, right? Right? Nope.

    Contrast is a unique puzzle game with enjoyable gameplay in 2D and 3D. It's a shame the controls aren't very responsive, making for a rather frustrating trial & error experience. There's a lot of bugs as well, which further lowers our score. Still, Contrast might be worth checking out, if you're willing to overlook the game's lesser aspects.

    The story's kind of pointless, but you'll have fun playing through it. The technical issues should've been fixed by now, though unfortunately we still experienced some.

    This medieval simulator is a technical mess, with mediocre graphics, clumsy controls and a steep learning curve. However, if you manage to look past all that, there's still something to like here.

    An elaborate strategy experience, hurt by mediocre graphics and a disappointing fighting system. It's a shame we can't properly read the letters on the screen either.

    Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is an enjoyable, but weird and deeply flawed game. Overall it feels a lot like a budget game, the concept of which unfortunately had more potential than its eventual execution.

    Fighting in space has never been so realistic as it is depicted in EVE Valkyrie. However, it's also never been so dull. An unnecessary micro-transaction system turns this game into a missed opportunity.

    Bound By Flame is an ambitious action RPG with a lacklustre story, an annoying camera and disappointing graphics. It's a nice attempt at greatness, though it doesn't quite nail the high notes.

    The new Need for Speed is fun enough, but the lack of a day-and-night cycle, decent AI and offline features make for an enormously disappointing package. Oh and the less said about the live action cutscenes, the better.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A very enjoyable game, even though there is no soundtrack and the gameplay lacks accuracy. This could and should have been a lot better.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Somehow we thought this one would turn out to be better. After all, the concept of ruling your own country (or in this case: winning it back) holds great possibilities. And even though a unique visual style and well-implemented touch controls make New Little King's Story a fun experience, a weak story, repetitive gameplay and a number of technical mistakes doesn't make it a lasting one.

    Dead Island: Riptide - more an expansion of than an actual sequel to Dead Island - doesn't succeed in changing up the formula much. The story's still weak, the controls still clumsy and the graphics are hit-and-miss. Some new additions like dead zones and some kick-ass new weapons keep things fresh, but after a while the action will get repetitive. And yet, despite all of this, the game manages to be extremely addicting.

    Real golf fans might like the experience, as well as the elaborate level editor that is included. The lack of a proper tutorial makes it rather difficult for newcomers, however, while slow menus and an annoying amount of facedrops bring the game down for just about anyone. There's some potential here, though.

    Basic. Old-school. Basic. Challenging. Basic. Repetitive. Oh, and did I mention basic?
    • 56 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It's a fun, if not exactly deep game that suffers from misplaced humour, uninspired voice-acting and an unhealthy amount of framedrops. Hack and slash fans might want to try this out. Other gamers might want to spend their money elsewhere.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The good? It's quite colourful, accessible and a lot of fun in co-op. The bad? It's a bit repetitive and cheap in the humour department. The ugly? Irrelevant.

    As the ending to the first season, the eighth episode of Minecraft: Story Mode delivers an emotional pay-off. However, the game's still a technical mess, while the story once more didn't manage to keep our attention throughout its runtime.

    It's been a while, but now there finally is a new MotoGP game. It's got everything you'd expect in terms of content, but the whole package is a bit disappointing. It's inaccessible, there's an awful amount of pop-up and the visuals are mediocre at best. Better luck next time.

    Lots of depth and freedom give Farming Simulator 17 quite the edge when compared to its predecessors. However, a truckload of bugs, a lack of innovation and an overabundance on repetitive gameplay elements keep this farmer from earning maximum profit.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Well, this is a bit of a disappointment... The story isn't as gripping as it could have been, the game feels rushed and the visuals aren't as good as you'd expect. It offers closure for the fans, sure, but as the final part of an epic trilogy it doesn't even come close to the mark.

    All three PC adventures of Adam Venture now arrive on PS3 in an interesting, challenging and often funny package. There's some technical hick-ups (especially visually) and the controls aren't as smooth as they should be, but that shouldn't stop puzzle fans from considering a purchase.

    Waddle Home is quite the amusing experience, though it beats us why this rather straightforward experience thinks it needs virtual reality to succeed.
