    Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is still an exciting fighting game. But this 'definitive' version lacks -yet again- fresh new content. Which is why it's only interesting for those who haven't played Dead or Alive 5 before.

    This game is definitely made for the 3DS, it has good graphics and 3D is simply awesome. Unfortunately the game lacks innovation. The concept of the game sounded better than the final product has become.

    This game is cheap, but even cheaper on the mobile phones. It's not really a game about fighting or kung fu. It's all about a cute bunny in a world wherein players are jumping and searching for carrots.

    Although this hack 'n slash game has its flaws, it is quite fun and enjoyable. If you like the genre then you better get it, and not only because it's very affordable.

    Even though Metrocide has a great atmosphere and a creative setup, the game feels artificially difficult and ends up being very frustrating.

    This game is difficult to describe. It is somewhere childish, but it's also cute. It's all about creating and exploring. It's a decent game but a little bit weird to play and understand.

    The concept of Monsteca Corral Monsters vs Robots is kinda nice, but the bad graphics ruin the fun. The game is barely worth your 500 Nintendo Points.

    EA Sports brings incredible graphics and details to the UFC franchise, but the rest sadly doesn't measure up to the high standard that THQ created. The career mode lacks depth and the combat has it's flaws.

    Unfortunately Sacred 2 is not better than its predecessor, but all in all it is an 'fine' RPG. Especially the big world is really recommendation worthy.

    Pac-Man is a classic game in everyone’s opinion. Therefore, it's really nice to play some old Pac-Man games. Although the price is quit expensive for what you get. Four or maybe five Pac-man games are really worth it, the rest is simply too outdated.

    Are you fond of hockey and do you want to play a match once in a while? Then NHL 2K10 is a good title for you. But if you're looking for a more serious game, EA's NHL 10 will be a better choice.

    Developer Milestone has managed to create a nice rally game that somehow disappoints in the visual department. Race fans should buy this game, but only when it has been lowered in price.

    Rack n Ruin combines a funny anti-hero with great graphics but lacks a great gameplay.

    The second Transformers game contains a little more oil, but still doesn't quite cut it. The graphics and the sound are okay, but the game doesn't give the right signals. Because of the extras Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is interesting for the fans, but for everyone else there's not much to look at here.

    Are you looking for a tactical game on the Wii, Pikmin is a fun title you should consider buying. Unfortunately it only has a short story. If you never played the GameCube version, but it always looked interesting to you, it is worth the money. Trust me!

    Heroes Over Europe has become a decent flight game. But you should consider Il-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey, if you’re looking for more serious simulation flight action.

    If you like Mario Kart and if you want to drive another tournament, you can put Madagascar Kartz in your console. The game is a decent rip-off but nothing more than that.

    Ubisoft shows us how to score with a title like Academy of Champions: Football. The game hasn't got a great story mode, but offers enough fun meant for arcade gamers and children.

    G-Force is nice, but not for serious gamers. However, the game deserves a six, because there's a lot of action, which makes it a little more fun to play, but it's still made for children.

    When you're a hack 'n slash freak that doesn't get enough of button mashing, you will have a lot of fun playing X-Blades. The graphics are nice but the sound isn't. The gameplay is a little boring but when you're a fan, it will definitely not bother you. When you're not a fan, you should leave this game alone.

    Maybe for South Park fans this is an interesting title. But be smart to start immediately with the multiplayer mode. Because if you choose to play on your own, the game will soon be pretty boring. For those people who are not South Park fans and are seeking for a Tower Defense game; look on the web, there are free and better versions available.

    Chop Till You Drop is not too bad, but if you have an Xbox 360 Dead Rising is a much better purchase. The Wii version comes short on certain aspects and is therefore not worth the full price.

    Hustle Kings is a nice game, but nothing more than that. You can have a great time by playing this game, but of course it's much more fun to play pool for real.

    MySims SkyHeroes is made especially for children and they'll love the gameplay. This game is definitely not for you if you're not a child and enjoy a little more action.

    Cut the Rope obviously is a very big success on mobile devices. It is a good thing that not much about the original gameplay has changed for this 3DS-version, but unfortunately there is no interesting new (3DS-) content with this download. Only a very big 3D Om-Nom on your top screen, that we find a bit meh-meh.
