    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.

    Disney Universe is a misleading title. The game lacks the typical Disney magic and isn't that involved with the franchise. The only Disney related things in this game were a few costumes and the names of a few movies. Only the youngest of gamers might enjoy this.

    This isn't a good game for kids because of the terrible Kinect support. It's best to watch Pixar movies instead of playing them.

    Nier wants too much and therefore fails. The gameplay is not challenging, the graphics are below standard and there is no originality whatsoever. So, just don't buy this game.

    You need to ask yourself the question if you want to play such a disgraceful game. The levels are monotone and the game will make you scream and yell at your 3DS. Add too little content and you know you need to stay far away from this title.

    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.

    The only reason to buy this game, is that it's 30 euro cheaper than the Nintendo DS version. And that's only when you are an Ace Attorney fan.

    New Play Control! Mario Power Tennis isn't worth buying. If you like to play tennis on your Wii, stick to Wii Sports or wait until Virtua Tennis 2009 comes out.

    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.

    You must be a really big Tekken fan if you want to buy Tekken Hybrid. This collection does so many things wrong in so many ways that it's a disgrace to the Tekken franchise. Your best bet is to wait for the release of Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

    If you are looking or a game with loads of content, Dynasty Warriors should be your thing. It's too bad that the storytelling in this game isn't that great.

    Every Tekken game has a lot to offer, but Tekken 3D Prime Edition doesn't have a lot of content. This makes for one hollow experience.

    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.

    Nothing stands out in a positive way in Urban Trial Freestyle. It is a cheap clone of the much better Trials games and not worth your time and money.

    Lemmings Touch brings that good old formula to the PlayStation Vita, but does not do that exactly right. The touch controls don't go hand in hand with the gameplay, and the graphics look really outdated. Unless you are a big fan of the series, you can better let this game slip through your fingers.

    The King of Fighters XII doesn't offer you enough for the price of 60 euros. It feels like an old arcade game, that could have been downloaded from [XLA] for a cheaper price. The game should have taken an example to Street Fighter IV, but unfortunately it doesn't.

    We found Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection to be boring and incredibly monotonous. Dragon Ball Z used to be a great television series, an awesome franchise. But what is left is something that will most probably only appeal to twenty-something men in search of nostalgia.

    Divinity II: Ego Draconis is an enjoyable and nice game when you play it on the PC. However, the Xbox 360 port of this game turned out so poorly, that playing as a dragon is the only thing that can make you smile a little bit.

    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.

    Despite the fact that the franchise was a lot of fun all those years ago, the Golden Axe games can't stand their ground in 2012. This collection is a must-have for the fans of the series. If you're looking for a beat' m up: there are better alternatives available.

    Disappointingly, there are too few great platformers we may still talk about in five years. Ethan: Meteor Hunter is no such title in that regard. There are simply no features to be found that really make the game stand out in a good way. Aside of that, the high level of repetition makes Ethan's adventure become boring really fast. It's like the little mouse is looking for his place in this world, but will likely never succeed on doing so.

    Alter Ego has a good basic gameplay but everything else is riddled with flaws. The puzzles are too simple, the ending is disappointing and the animations just aren't impressive.

    The latest game in the Ferrari franchise has been a huge let down due to some licensing problems. The graphics are simply bad and it feels like developer System 3 had to rush this game to get it in stores before the holidays.

    MXGP2 doesn't deserve to be the only motocross game of this generation. The game looks ugly, it's technically outdated and has lots of bugs. Don't buy this one.

    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.

    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.

    MX vs. ATV Supercross isn't the game fans were hoping for. It lacks diversity in content, the graphics are below par and other small mistakes makes you want to forget playing this game.

    Bang Bang Racing gives the player a real arcade feeling. Unfortunately the game lacks creativity. There isn't a whole lot of content and after a short time you have seen the same circuits enough to get bored of them. With a camera angle that doesn't work properly you can say that Bang Bang Racing has failed to impress.
