    F1 2011 on the PS Vita is just as disappointing as on the 3DS. The game doesn't play the same as the superior console-versions and visually it's lacking quality.

    Confrontation manages to score some points in a few areas, for example the concept. Also, the combat can get pretty difficult at times and encourages a tactical mind, which is a plus. Thank the heavens for the included pause button. Unfortunately, most of the ideas are very poorly executed and the gameplay is incredibly linear. For a 39.99 euro game, we would have expected more. A lot more.

    The Silent Hill HD Collection is a disgrace to the series. Fans won't recognize anything from the good old games and should only get this because of the low price.

    Sniper Elite V2 is a disappointing sniper game that doesn't stimulate you to act like a real sniper. The level design is poor and the enemies lack intelligence. Even the nice kill cam couldn't save the game from a poor rating.

    Krater could have been a wonderful game but messes up in the gameplay department. The gameplay tends to get repetitive and the story isn't that great. Krater has turned out to be a pretty weak start of a franchise.

    The AR booklet offers an interesting concept and a few great puzzles, but Spirit Camera lacks the necessary compelling gameplay and scares to keep you on the edge of your seat.

    The idea is nice, but the implementation does not deserve a high mark. If you are a fan of tower defense games, then you can try the game for free and play some levels. When you like it, then you can purchase the full game for € 2.99.

    Hearthfire offers you a great home for your stuff, but won't allow you to customize it in any meaningful way.

    Mutant Mudds manages to be one of the craziest games of the year. Unfortunately it is not very good due to the bad soundtrack, navigation and visuals.

    The basis of Spy Hunter is fine, really. The gameplay is okay and pretty diverse. Graphics wise it lacks strength though, and the controls just don't feel right. We hope to see Spy Hunter in all its glory someday. Unfortunately that day is not today.

    It seems like developer Milestone just didn't listened to feedback fans of the series provided. As a result, the new WRC disappoints. The rally game lacks an original idea. It wants to be DiRT, but isn't. A budget title according to us.

    The first party game on the Wii U is a fact but to be honest, it's a failure. The tracklist isn't strong enough to play this game for a long time. Also, there are better karaoke games out there, think about SingStar and Lips.

    As a player, you would expect a survival horror game but it's nothing more than a normal shooter. But there are better shooters available. ACM contains bugs and fails on the graphical aspects. Not worth a buy.

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 could have been a great sniper game. Learned from all mistakes made in the original game, one would think a sequel would make up for everything. Alas, that is not the case. The game fails to really stand out in many aspects, such as the story and characters. Let's hope a possible third entry will be an impressive point blank.

    Alien Spidy tries to present the player with a platformer that's both fun and challenging. There is absolutely no balance to be found between those two elements, however. The result is an unforgiving title that hardly ever becomes even slightly addictive.

    Even though the concept of this game is pretty original, Freefall Racers is not a game you will play for very long. It is very hard to get a power-up and nearly impossible to use one. These flying squirrels do not look very good, so you really do not feel the need to unlock all of them. And then what's left?

    The co-driver and the learning curve in WRC 4 are pretty decent, and the addition of real drivers and teams is something that will appeal to the real fan. But it isn't enough to be satisfied with the game. WRC 4 suffers from uninspiring modes, weird choices, strange handling and a damage- and physics model that just isn't right. It’s a shame that this game - once again - doesn't realize his potential.

    Quite a difficult game, but it still has it charms. However, it feels outdated – it came out in Japan in 1997 – and it can overcome that fact. The voice acting is really magnificent in this game, but that’s one of those spare pros.

    This game is a cliche in every way possible. The animations are not so great, the story and the cast came directly from a B-movie, and the game lacks originality overall.

    It's not acceptable anymore to deliver a standard platform game and just get away with it. Invizimals has nothing special. It had potential, but the developer was too lazy to make a really big game of the huge universe.

    The portable counterpart to LEGO Marvel Superheroes is a lot les 'Super'. Levels are short and bland, the cut-scenes are in horrible quality and the gameplay just isn't that much fun when the whole game lacks the polish and quality that the console-version has.

    The show Adventure Time is funny, quirky and even heartwarming at some times. It’s a shame the game is the opposite of that and just plain old boring. There is too little variation in the game and with a hundred levels; it’ll be difficult to get through the game.

    Montague’s Mount has a fantastic atmosphere, but is too slow to get really creepy. With a mysterious tone, you’ll want to discover it more and more. However, it has too many flaws to be memorable.

    Contrast could have been a great game, but it feels too rushed. The controls are stiff and the platform elements aren´t that challenging. And we aren´t even talking about the countless bugs we found in the game.

    What should've been a nice RPG, turned out to be a mediocre, monotonous game. The battles can be spectacular, but the lack of strategy makes it somewhat redundant. There couldn't be a better anime to base an RPG on, but the way the story is told is bland and can even be irritating at times.

    Just leave this puzzle game alone, it's not nice to play. The Dr. Mario games from the past were so much fun and so much better. This one isn't worth its money.

    Even though the game keeps challenging you, it's basically the same thing we've already seen in Candy Crush. Fans of Candy Crush will probably like this game as well since it's basically the same game with a different skin. The 150 levels are challenging, although the game itself isn't that special.

    This game is a mayor deception. The God of War games were so epic on the PlayStation 2 but look really bad on the PS Vita. Therefore it's a total disaster. Poor Kratos, he deserves better.

    It is too bad that How to Survive fails in so many respects. With an always-ready inventory on your GamePad, the Wii U version of How to Survive is actually better than the other versions of the game.

    The idea behind Light is certainly interesting, but the execution is not that great. It's really short and there's not much variation between the different missions.
