    Sonic CD is already eightteen years old, but it's still one of the greatest Sonic games. Everything that was good in the 1993 version for SEGA Mega-CD, is still good in the remake. The levels have a beautiful design and the high definition tweak certainly strengthens that. A pity that SEGA didn't add anything to the remake, some bonus content would have been nice.

    Singularity is better then the average shooter and has a lot of fun to offer. Thanks to a decent singleplayer campaign and a fine multiplayer, you won't regret spending your time on this game.

    Kinect Sports: Season Two doesn't do anything particularly better than the first game, but includes six new sports. There is a good variety in gameplay, going from the more active sports like american football to more passive sports such as darts. It's just a pity that the graphics are so outdated.

    The game plays well and guarantees many hours of fun. All in all, Dragon Quest Heroes is a more than successful PlayStation exclusive that most can appreciate.

    Unit 13 isn't the best and most revolutionary shooter available but prooves that there are many posibilities for shooters on the PlayStation Vita.

    Top Spin 4 has become a reasonably good game, it's much better than the previous Top Spin. There's a lot to explore but unfortunately there's a lack of real improvement. So the game isn't perfect.

    After a series of disappointing Harry Potter games, Harry Potter for Kinect is certainly an illumination. Not only can you play seven years on Zweinstein in one game, which is exciting, but also works the Kinect gameplay nearly perfectly.

    PulzAR makes great use of the AR technology to offer some interesting and tough puzzles. The technology does have some hiccups, however.

    In The Adventures of Shuggy you get a a ton of challenges that every puzzler can enjoy. Don't drop the game because of the first easy puzzles, because they get extremely difficult, very fast. Despite some flaws this game is well worth your money.

    PES 2015 is the best game in the franchise in years, thanks to superb gameplay and the exciting My Club-mode. Despite its good looks, its presentation is worse and the licenses are yet again incomplete.

    Fable Anniversary is a great way to experience the first Fable. Unfortunately, only the graphics are updated and therefore the game still feels like it is from another time period. Long load times between areas really take the speed out of the game and the menu-interface is old and outdated. Still, the humor and amazing world Lionhead created with the first Fable is just as funny as it was ten years ago.

    Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer is a blast for everyone who that loved to decorate their home in earlier Animal Crossing games. The options are limitless, however this comes with a few limits in other aspects. As a whole, the game is a blast to play.

    A not-so-popular sports game here in Europe with lots of potential. Even though there are some minor flaws when playing this game, this game is absolutely amazing. With lots of game modes, lots of possibilities and everything you can think of that should be in a wrestling game, this game is a game worth trying.

    Spin Cycle offers a lot of unique and tough puzzles for a low price. Although it has its defects, it manages to entertain you.

    Doki-Doki Universe is a one of a kind game. Some people will love it for its creativity, others will not like that concept. The game is packed with humour, questions and more. It is, however, always the same, so you’ll be done with Doki-Doki Universe quite quickly.

    Dillon's Rolling Adventure is a fun and original tower defense game. It feels great to roll around and fight a bunch of weird monsters. Unfortunately the gameplay gets too repetitive near the end.

    The Ios version of GTA: San Andreas is a good one, but it’s not something new we haven’t seen already. If you have the choice to pick between this version and a PC or console version, pick the latter.

    The Banner Saga is good game with his flaws. It’s horrendously difficult and its build for a certain group of gamers. If you love slow-paced RTS gaming with incredible consequences, The Banner Saga is the game for you.

    A solid fast-paced platformer starring a robot with the desire to get home. Use gravity to overcome obstacles and experience a journey unique among its kind.

    Dying Light is a satisfying zombie survival game with a few features that make it stand out against the many other zombie survival games out there. Even so, after playing it for a while, the gameplay becomes quite repetitive.

    If you don’t want to do the same thing over and over, you hate a game over screen and need a tutorial to understand what you’re doing, Don’t Starve isn’t the game for you. It’s difficult, challenging and divers, which makes it a great experience.

    The port Bayonetta on Wii U has the same timeless fighting fun as the game had when it came out on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The controls with GamePad are very annoying, but the graphics seem better.

    For a product that started out as a joke, Hatoful Boyfriend is a surprisingly nice game. It will not take too much time, but it is fun to play with because of the absurdity and jokes.

    Forza Motorsport 5 is a decent racer. Turn 10 does a lot of good things in their first game for the next-gen consoles, like the handling of the cars and variety in game modes. Unfortunately they miss the mark in game content - like tracks and cars - and modes like the multiplayer are disappointing. This is a pity, because it leaves a stain on an otherwise amusing race game.

    Unmechanical Extended is a fun game, but the Extended version offers nothing new. Graphically it's a unique game and the gameplay is great, but there is no real challenge. Still it is worth buying.

    Talking about content, Resident Evil 6 is an awesome and great game. Talking about the gameplay, Resident Evil 6 is a decent game, yet a bit disappointing. Talking about the co-op, Resident Evil 6 is a great game. Do the math yourself!

    Escape from Butchers Bay is still an excellent title, and it is therefore regrettable that the new game Assault on Dark Athena is not as good as the last Riddick game. Still there is an entertaining section, that makes the total package certainly worth buying.

    The game looks great and the gameplay is fantastic, but it never becomes too hard. The storyline that was so great in the original is not that clear in this game.

    Yakuza 4 can be a great game but you'll have to look really hard to discover all of the great aspects it has to offer. This game isn't for you if you don't want to look into the deeper meaning of things.
