    MotoGP 09/10 is definitely worth buying if you are looking for a fun motorcycle racing title. But for the serious motorcycle enthusiasts it's better to wait and see what SBK X will offer.

    This Kirby game looks amazing and for kids it is fun to give them the feeling that they can paint and play at the same time. However it's annoying to use the stylus through he whole game. So therefore it's a bit disappointing.

    Heroes of Ruin is a fun dungeon crawler with tons of loot to collect and more than enough possibilities to connect with other players. The game is a bit standard though, failing to stand out from the croud.

    Helm's Deep is an expansion pack purely meant for the fans of the books. It contains less action sequences compared to Peter Jackson's movies, but the newly added Big Battles make up for it. On the other hand is Rohan finally showed in all it's glory, which is a sight to behold.

    Defiance is an enjoyable game, which needs to be polished to really shine. The shooting-mechanism works great and shooting with and against other Ark Hunters is great fun. The game has some downsides but there aren't major errors. The connection with the series still has to prove it self and that is something only time will tell.

    Shadwen is a competent and somewhat enjoyable stealth game, but not exactly memorable. While the core experience and some of its mechanics, such as the time manipulation mechanics, are quite well done, the game suffers from a general lack of polish.

    It is a fun game for the young and less experienced gamers. However, due to the fact that the game is not very challenging, Mini Ninjas is not recommendable for the regular gamer. Moreover the lack of an offline or online multiplayer mode is a pity.

    Atomic Ninjas looks stunning on the handheld. It has a fun and simple gameplay, but it gets quite repetitive after a while. Best thing of the game is the Noob Rage, which lets you kick some ass. It has however some excruciating loading times. Overall, it´s an okay game for the catalog of the Vita.

    Even though the story in Nights of Azure isn't original, combining it with a lesbian love story and a great battle system works out for the game. Sometimes the cutscenes lack great graphics, but the music and the low budget compensates for these flaws.

    Even though Cubetractor is a very solid game and a nice mix of different genres with a little twist, the retro graphics of this game and the accompanying music start to bore very easily.

    When you like to race on your Wii, at this moment this is the game you should buy!

    Total War Attila is a beautiful game, although it's not that different from the previous Total War entries. The rag-doll physics look good, but the warship gameplay falls a little flat compared to the rest of this very well made game.

    Halo: Spartan Assault brings the Halo universe once again back on the Xbox 360, but in a different way as you are used to see the franchise. This top-down shooter is an enjoyable journey through the world of the Spartans. However, it is a very short adventure. Too short in our opinion.

    Fuse is a surprisingly fun experience that has successfully combined elements from other games and sometimes even slightly improves upon them. Sadly, the repetition in enemies and lacking sense of progression make Fuse feel rather cheap. The result is a game that should mostly be played with friends, as the joy of co-op can make you forget about the otherwise noticeable flaws.

    Lethal League is a very creative brawler that's easy to learn. The fitting soundtrack and unusual way of fighting make it a very fun game to play.

    Hohokum is a really relaxing game, with brightly colored worlds and soothing music, but people looking for a challenge are at the wrong address with Hohokum.

    The game is good. The rules and play style vary slightly from the board game which makes the game interesting. The campaign is tricky at some points although it gets repetitive when you play too long.

    It's nice to see Michonne as leading character now in a new The Walking Dead game from Telltale. She is a strong character. However the first episode contains some weak dialogue. But the zombies in the water are awesome.

    Monster High New Ghoul in School is a game in which you become part of the franchise. The 3DS game is as complete as the console version. For fans of the series, the game is a blast to play on the go, or just at home on the couch.

    The Peanuts Movie Snoopy's Grand Adventure is a great platformer for kids. It's cute, it looks good and it's diverse. Unfortunately you don't get enough content for your money as you play through it quickly.

    Raving Rabbids Travel in Time is like a shirt with some wrinkles in it. It looks good to the common man but the more experienced eye shall see its flaws. Still the game offers hours of fun for you and your friends.

    The game doesn't really show innovation, but still is a entertaining title. Especially due to the fact that you can play everything in 3D this time does a lot.

    Mega Man 10 is on certain moments a good game, but it drops stitches as well. Furthermore, the bosses aren't all original and the soundtrack is a little bit annoying. Still the game offers enough innovation to keep you busy for hours.

    After Need for Speed Undercover the core NFS-games seemed to have become lost glory. This new Need for Speed however marks the return of those core Need for Speed elements and shows that the voice of the fans really is heard by the developers.

    Not a Hero is a challenging but fun game. It has tons of humor and a lot of graphic violence. Unfortunately it is also linear and only entertains for a short period. Still worth a try though.

    Super Monkey Ball is a good game but doesn't benefit from the 3D functionality the 3DS has to offer. The game is pretty short and you should therefore wait until the price drops before you buy it.

    The hype around Brink was huge and the game doesn't live up to all of the expectations. The campaign is extremely short and so it's the online gameplay that saves this game from demise. With the right teammates you'll have a ton of fun online.

    If you are searching for a fresh take on the chess-genre, UHR Warlords just might be the game you are looking for. The impressive online multiplayer mode makes it even better. Just don't expect to see cutting edge graphics or animations on the characters.
