    FEAR 2: Project Origin leaves us quite an uneven sensation. On one hand it has offered us truly spectacular and full of tension moments, very different from the ones which other games in the genre offer. Moreover, its carefully made atmosphere, fueled by the solid graphics engine developed by Monolith, make the immersion sensation total. The problem is that although FEAR 2 knows what makes itself stand out from the other shooters, it insists on offering quite generic moments during most of the game, and, worse indeed, it's not quite polished.

    After two years we can finally get this decent adaptation of the franchise to Nintendo DS. The formula is still working as then, although the technical limitations have caused the game to lose some of that "personal touch" Pendulo Studios gave to the original.

    Tales of Vesperia is a solid role-playing game, built upon the canonical bases of the japanese genre. The characters go through an epic story, with moments of drama and also some bits of humor. Its intense combat mantains the tradition of the series, and it also has a good technical part.

    In Star Ocean: The Last Hope its gameplay excels, with intense and satisfying combat which give the game a good pace. But its story is really shallow, and lacks something in character and situations building, although it keeps the gamer interested enough to keep playing.

    Disgaea 3 is currently one of the greatest strategic RPG games, with a very fun story, a combat system which fans will love, and a more than exquisite gameplay. Not only that, the game is a very long and replayable one, above all for players which want to squeeze the 100% of it. Unfortunately, and this is one of the things that could undermine buyers -apart from the visuals-, Disgaea 3 is fully en English, and not exactly an easy one. It is a pity it has not been localized to Spanish at all.

    Race Pro not only stands as a realistic simulation experience, but also has almost everything a player can demand from a title of this sort. Apart from that, it needed some polishing in its technical aspects, and doesn't have enough additional content like more game modes or different elements, which would have given the experience some more variety and made for a more solid game. But despite what it lacks, this is one of the best representations of racing simulation, and SimBin has finally been able to translate to a console what has been bringing to PC for years.

    Tom Clancy's Endwar is a very good strategy game, a experience that no genre fan should let escape, because the sensation of having under our command such a number of troops who obey our orders is just fantastic. Its biggest problem, though, is its shallowness in strategic options in comparison with what we are used to seeing on PC.
