    Although the looks of Battle: Los Angeles are acceptable, the length of the game is not. The price doesn't justify the quality of the game and you'll find yourself longing for a good game even before you reach the end of this incredibly mediocre game, that doesn't even last two hours.

    Dead Horde is a game that is riddled with bugs that could have been easily prevented. Sure the graphics are good and the co-op is pretty fun, but the gameplay gets very boring, very fast.

    The concept of Hole in the Wall may seem perfect for Kinect but it absolutely isn't. There are only two game modes and the game seems rushed, not always registering your body as it should. All of this adds up to a game that should be ignored by people who have Kinect.

    Rise of Nightmares was supposed to be a great game with excellent Kinect controls that was perfect for the hardcore gamers. However, due to poorly developed controls, Rise of Nightmares is a failed project.

    SEGA Bass Fishing is just a copy of the original game. That's quite unfortunate,because this title could have been decent if SEGA took the time to put some more work into it. If you're a die hard fisherman, you may have fun with SEGA Bass Fishing. If not, it's best you leave this game at the bottom of the ocean, right where it belongs.

    If you want to experience Cars 2: The Videogame, buy it on the consoles. The 3DS version simply isn't fun to play. Kids might like it, but only for a short while, until the boredom strikes.

    Sony delivers a very bad Move-game and that loses the fight with Wii Fit and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012. Move Fitness doesn't feel like a real fitness game and never really stimulates you to keep on going.

    Army Corps of Hell is ironically repetetive and boring as hell. The game also looks pretty bad and one of the only good features is the soundtrack. Still, it doesn't help the game get a better rating.

    The franchise has been murdered by Team Ninja itself. Every little thing that made the previous games so great has disappeared in Ninja Gaiden 3.

    Iron Front really has a realistic atmosphere, there's a lot of different modes to choose from and the German/Russian voices are done well. The game is not really playable though, because it crashes a lot. Cutscenes cannot be skipped and there are some important explanations missing.

    Hoodwink is a game that obviously plays it safe, by following the traditional point & click path. So don't expect any form of originality. That doesn't have to be a bad thing, but because this game suffers from many other annoying flaws. Like the disability to skip cutscenes and the presence of a main character that is a complete slowpoke, means you are better off using your detective skills elsewhere.

    In the end DanceStar Party is a not a good game. It doesn't contain enough content and it doesn't offer a solid gameplay experience. This is not the dance game you're looking for if you have a PlayStation Move.

    It's time to stop making James Bond games in such a short time. 007 Legends isn't legendary at all. It completely fails in different ways. Too bad.

    Sweden is not a country famous for it's nice beaches. Looking at Aqua Moto Racing 3D, it appears the Swedish developer has no idea what beaches look like. The graphics of this videogame are okay on mobile devices, but on 3DS this videogame simply looks horrible. The water that splashes up from the sea makes it nearly impossible to see and anticipate on the waves. A big pity, because the waves could be an only original thing that could have made this game feel different from other 'kart'-games.

    Pokémon Rumble U is a bad Pokémon game, although it can be pretty funny for a couple of hours. It seems to be nothing more then a entree for Pokémon X and Y.

    Just skip this edition. The commentators are literally ten year old and haven’t changed in a such a long time. It seems Pro Cycling Manager 2013 was just assembled from the 2012 edition. No changes whatsoever, even though it welcomes newcomers okay.

    Arma III is a disgrace for the gaming world. It feels like it’s rushed to the market and still in the alpha phase of developing. Bohemia Interactive will have to release a buck load of patches to make this game work properly. This is unfortunate as they could have spent that time trying to deliver a good game.

    The only thing that improved since the Wii versions of Mario & Sonic are the graphics. That alone is not worth your money.

    Gomo didn't turn out to be a very great game. It's really short, the puzzles are very easy, and the controls are a pain in the ass. It's definitely not the best option If you were looking for a point-and-click adventure.

    Tappingo offers nothing to challenge the player. You will be doing the same thing over and over again without any variety. If you have some hours to kill you could spend your free moments with Tappingo but there are better alternatives available for the 3DS.

    It's easy to fall in love with Monochroma's style, but the stiff and slow responsiveness of the controls and the annoying brother on your back, makes it a tough challenge to complete the game.

    Enemy Front is a game that tries to do the right thing. Unfortunately it fails on most aspects and doesn't entertain for long because of it.

    When you start the game up, it seems fun and original to use the 3DS camera to take pictures that are actually being used in the game. It is too bad that underneath that interesting surface, a very repetitive game is waiting for you. The mini-games feel like chores and the graphics are a little too random to feel like a good and solid game.

    If you are crazy about motors and won't be bothered by the fact that the controls are not always responding well and the graphics are weak? Then this game is a nice title for you to pick up and play. Keep in mind that the game pretty quickly repeats itself. If you're not in to motorcycles, then you better not buy any of this.

    Unfortunately .deTuned is not a title on which you can spend a lot of hours. Thanks to the lack of features, you will be quickly done with the game.

    Kung Fu Rider is a good example of what you shouldn't do with the PlayStation Move. The controls are frustrating and the few levels are repetitive. Don't buy this game, not even if your live depended on it.

    Time Crisis: Razing Storm combines a bad story with even worse controls. This game is not worth your money, despite the fact that the two extra games are even more fun than Razing Storm itself.

    Bodycount is probably the most disappointing game of the year. The bad story, exceptionally stupid AI and the bad controls result in an extremely frustrating game. For the love of gamers, don't play this game.
