    Fate of the World: Tipping Point offers a great learning experience but doesn't keep the player interested in it's gameplay for long. The look is good and you have a ton of possibilities, it's just a shame that the learning curve is so steep.

    Little Deviants has become the Wii Play of the PlayStation Vita; quite boring, not challenging and just not that fun to play. The multiplayer however can be great at times. But that's all there's to it.

    Mario and Sonic are two legendary characters that unfortunately don't always guarantee a good game. There are a lot of mini games to play but the lack of an online multiplayer is annoying. There's only local and download play. It's funny but only kids will be able to enjoy it to the max.

    Mario Party 9 contains a lot of new mini games and changes the rules of the game completely. The new rules are boring and everything depends on luck. Therefore this is the worst Mario Party title ever.

    This game is a remake from a remake and therefore too expensive. The previous game on the PS3 is cheaper and has the same content. But if you don't have a PS3 then you can always look into this version.

    The several power-ups and the five unique classes in World Tour make up for the somewhat repetitive gameplay. But we want dynamic gameplay and awesome features that will keep our adrenaline high. Also, the lack of split-screen is an absolute dealbreaker because Wheels of Destruction could be a great game if a local co-op feature was included. That is not the case however. A cool concept, but a poor execution. Disappointing.

    PokéPark 2 suffers from clunky controls and a lack of challenge. Only the young Pokémon fans will overlook that for an overall happy and cuddly game.

    It's difficult to review Kinect Star Wars. First of all, it finally gives you that awesome moment you've been waiting for: controlling and using the force. And believe us, it's really awesome. But then that awkward moment comes when you realize the gameplay is not actually quite that good.

    This classic Sonic game gets very hard when played on your own, but as soon as a friend joins and plays as Tails, everything gets a bit too easy. This games misses gimmicky new features and the levels do not differ much, apart from the theme ofcourse. It's fun to run around with the super speedy Sonic, but unfortunately this game lacks innovation.

    Operation Raccon City has a pretty good multiplayer and some smooth controls. That is unfortunately where the goodness ends. The singleplayer is weak and the A.I. is just as stupid as the zombies.

    One of the biggest problems LEGO Batman 2 has on the console, becomes a bigger problem on Vita. There are too little levels to play and there isn't an open world like on the consoles. Its a shame that a game with so many possibilities turns out to be so small and simple.

    Ferrari Racing Legends is without balance. The way you have to unlock things, doesn't work and that's a shame. Ferrari deserves a better game than this one, because the cars are basically the only good part of the game.

    It might offer some fun with a local friend, but the lack of an online multiplayer will make you forget this title very quickly.

    Inversion is a decent shooter with some fun gravity-gameplay. Unfortunately it is never memorable and offers no innovation or surprise, offering a mediocre overall experience.

    Although Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition delivers a very complete package, it doesn't do anything new or special. The gamemodes feel almost the same and thanks to that, only the real Frogger fans will be excited by this downloadable game.

    There is one thing this game can be proud of: it works! Your movements are almost always correctly registered. And lets be honest, shouting Kamehameha at your TV and seeing it happening in game is awesome. This game lacks content however. A few fights in the single player is all you have to look forward to. After a couple of hours you are done with it.

    The gameplay of the new Silent Hill feels pretty good. It lacks in story and graphics though. The user-interface doesn't work like it should, and the multiplayer is a huge disappointment. Book of Memories could have been great but downright isn't.

    Pokemon Dream Radar costs a dime, and for that you get a strange interpretation of the Pokemon world. We must admit, it's fresh, it's new. But it won't keep you playing for longer than three hours.

    Fable: The Journey looks and sounds great, but lacks the smooth Kinect experience to make it a truly enjoyable game.

    Pokédex 3D Pro is a source of information that is incomplete. Nevertheless it is cool to look at Pokémon in 3D, but the price keeps you from buying it.

    Another expansion for De Sims 3 and this time it adds a lot of realism. That makes it kind of cool, but it still feels like a bit of a trick to make money for the developers.

    It's good to see there are still developers who dare to try something different. Because let's be honest..how many zeppelin sims are out there now? Exactly. Guns of Icarus Online offers a fun concept, working together with some random players on a flying fortress, trying to defend it from other, similar foes. Bugs and lag cause major disappointment however. That's a shame, because the idea is great. Let's hope a great amount of patches will deal with these problems.

    If you want a good game with which to play mini games, then Nintendo Land is your game to get. Game Party Champions has some nice mini games, but also enough stupid ones.

    Spy Hunter's might have a decent basic structure, the weak controls and graphics make it less enjoyable than it could have been.

    A beautiful game that unfortunately isn't very unique and too lightly packed.

    The game looks nice and it has a energetic soundtrack. Unfortunately Crashed Ice Kinect offers only five courses and no online game modes, which makes the game only fun for a little while.

    While Omerta has a great gangster style with the black and white photos and jazz music, the gameplay itself feels more like work than playing a videogame. The animations in the fighting scenes are stiff, and the only thing that changes when your influence on Atlantic City grows are the emblems above the houses. All missions start up slow, and especially in the first few hours you are constantly waiting for your henchmen to finish their task.

    Croixleur turned out to be a little game with a lot of spirit. Sadly this doesn't make up for the few hours of gameplay the game offers. It's not very special but it will only cost you a couple of dollars.

    It looks like StarDrive isn't completely finished at this time. The game is addictive and can keep you busy for hours and hours. Despite that, StarDrive lacks some features to really shine. If Zer0 Sum Games manages to fix these flaws, StarDrive can become a star in the sky.

    The Jetstream Sam DLC isn't the best content Platinum Games delivered so far. Playing with Jetstream feels good and offers a different playstyle that is really enjoyable. However, the environments and enemies are practically all copied from the main game. The upgrade system is also gone, which makes this DLC very weak on it's own.
