    Japan Studio succeeded in making the best Augmented Reality game for the PlayStation Vita, even though that is not much of an accomplishment seeing how little most games use this feature. [October 2013 p.90]

    A colourful puzzle platformer you should not miss out on if you have a co-op buddy to play it with, because it can get pretty frustrating on your own. It will deliver multiple “eureka!” moments that make puzzle games so great. [October 2013 p.95]

    A fighting game with subpar graphics and just one attack (the rotating helicopter screwdriver kick... no just kidding, it is the dive kick) should not get more than 10/100, but it actually is pretty fun. When playing multiplayer. [October 2013 p.90]

    Not only do the recognizable levels make a return, the evenly recognizable difficulty makes a comeback. This artificially lengthens an already short game, which makes it very difficult to recommend it to a modern audience. [October 2013 p.95]

    Payday 2 plays differently each time you boot it up. Nothing ever goes the way you planned, but that does not mean it does not feel the same each and every time. Despite its repetitive ways, this second payday feels more streamlined and fun than the first one. [October 2013 p.95]

    Some games stay etched in your memory because of the emotional journey you experienced, like The Walking Dead, The Last of Us or Ico. Brother: A Tale of Two Sons does not quite belong on that list, but it does come very close. [October 2013 p.94]

    Not the most original title for a game, but do not let that fool you. This boxing game already appeared on iOS devices with a cheaper price tag, but the Vita version looks much sharper. Too bad the touch screen controls are a bit of a letdown. [October 2013 p.94]

    Spelunky is finally available on PlayStation platforms and there is plenty of reason to be happy about that. This hard as nails platformer will have you clutching your controller in a choke hold due to random levels and a healthy dose of trial and error. [October 2013 p.94]

    What is there left to tell about The Walking Dead, our personal best game of 2012. Those who only own a Vita owe it to themselves to play this thrilling interactive zombie adventure. [October 2013 p.94]

    To convert us city boys to diehard farmers you are going to need some preparation or at least some decent tutorials. After eleven lengthy and mind numbingly boring tutorials however, we knew … absolutely nothing. [October 2013 p.93]

    All these nice new features make Madden 25 the ideal companion for a night of intelligent pounding (yes, we know. It sounded better in our heads). But we did expect a little bit more from what is supposed to be the ultimate American Football game. [October 2013 p.90]

    Live The Life sounds great on paper, with emotional problems hampering your player's abilities and possibly determining what team he punches dudes in the face for. But in reality the system is ... undecipherable. [October 2013 p.88]

    On paper it seems like a simple, by the numbers platformer and it is to a certain degree. But Puppeteer is much more than that. It is an interactive stage play that constantly breaks the fourth wall. [October 2013 p. 86]

    We are still not that fond of the first Kingdom Hearts. It divided the gaming community back then between those who hated it and those who build a shrine to it in their bedrooms. There was no middle ground. And there still is none today. [October 2013 p.84]

    If you have ever played a Dynasty Warriors game, you know what to expect from Pirate Warriors 2. You start out with Luffy, but as you battle your way through hordes of enemies, you will unlock up to 26 more fighters. [October 2013 p.82]

    If there is one thing clear about Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, it is that this MMORPG is here to stay. Squenix promises new content every two or three months and the story for the first expansion pack has already been written. It will be necessary to keep players interested. [October 2013 p.78]

    The AI of your fellow teammates has been ramped up considerably, making them wide open for a pass much more often. Exciting duels, where the ball changes owner multiple times are not just an exception anymore, they are to be expected. [October 2013 p.74]

    Aside from the updated controls, Blizzard has also adapted the inventory to be less like a puzzle and more like a traditional list of items. This might be less “RPG-like”, but it does make everything a whole lot smoother and easier to navigate. [October 2013 p.68]

    GTA IV was extraordinarily good, but it took itself a little bit too seriously. GTA V outdoes even San Andreas when it comes to changing up standard shootouts with more wacky, explosive and memorable missions. [October 2013 p.56]

    “Just one more time”, is what you will be telling yourself many times once you get into the flow of Cloudberry Kingdom. And it is also a great (if you are into the whole sadism thing) party game. [September p.93]

    Seven. Seven times we sat through the entire opening sequence, whistling the Ducktales theme song along like a deranged school boy, before pressing the start button. But that doesn't mean we also want to sit through the boring new cut scenes in this remake. [September p.92]

    You know what we like? Combat that isn't half bad and not having to pay for our games. So us and Spartacus Legends should have been a match made in heaven. Want to know what we do not like? Grinding. And there is plenty of it in this otherwise acceptable game. [September p.91]

    If you have not bought a ticket to go and see R.I.P.D.: The Movie, then you are missing out on … absolutely nothing. And yes the game is just as bad. [September p.91]

    Twenty years after the Amiga classic our fourth favourite super frog (just behind Frog from Chrono Trigger and the Battletoads) returns with fancy new visuals. And, guess what? Besides some control issues, the game is not that bad. [September p.91]

    Get your Inception “bwaaaaas” at the ready, because Attack on Dragon Keep is a game within a game. Bwaaaaa! And it is also the best DLC for Borderlands 2 yet. Save the best for last, seems to be the game's motto. Bwaaaaa! [September p.91]

    The ultra-violent indie hit Hotline Miami has found its way unto our PlayStation 3 an Vita and it is a drug infused combination between GTA, Metal Gear, neon lights and animal masks. Yes, you should play this. [September p.91]

    You could see 400 Days as a great dessert after an exquisite meal. Or maybe as an appetizer for a second course, because we were left wanting much more, even though this DLC does not quite reach the same heights as the original series. [September p.90]

    Daud returns a second and final time to the dark world of Dishonored. This time around he is after a damsel (who is definitely not in distress) called Delilah, which is not an easy task thanks to all the witchcraft. [September p.90]

    Not the best map pack for BLOPS II by a long shot, but still a lot of explosive fun. Out of the four new competitive maps, Detour is our favourite. Buried, the new zombie map this time around, however is a whole lot less interesting than Mob of the Dead from the Uprising DLC. [September p.90]

    Narco Terror is a not so very special twin stick shooter that gets repetitive real fast and has a boring story to boot. The upside is that you can play the game with a friend, if you want to. But even with multiple wannabe Rambo's there is not much fun to be had. [September p.90]
