Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition

Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition

With a ton of characters, excellent story mode and loads of extras, Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition is a must have not only for fans of Mortal Kombat, but anyone who loves the genre. The gameplay is solid and the fights taking place on a 2D plane works very well. The Komplete Edition might not be worth it if you already own the original version but for newcomers it is highly recommended.

Gameplay: Harkens back to the classic era of Mortal Kombat games.

Graphics: The visuals are very impressive and breath new life into familiar arenas.

Sound: Excellent

Viva Piñata

Viva Piñata

Viva Pinata is one of those games where looks can very deceiving. Although it looks like a children’s game that would offer no challenge to older players it actually packs some nice gameplay features and a ton of stuff to do. It’s not perfect but there’s hours of fun to be had here.

Gameplay: Way more addictive than I ever thought it would be.

Graphics: Maybe a bit too childish for some but definitely very cute.

Sound: Loads of critter sound effects and nice ambient noises

Zuma Deluxe

Zuma Deluxe

Someone that has never played a version of this game using a computer mouse would probably enjoy it more but it is definitely not a bad game. The gameplay is very addictive and there are more than enough levels to keep you playing for a long time. Checking out the demo first is highly recommended however.

Gameplay: Would have been better if the controls were more precise.

Graphics: Nice but nothing special.

Sound: Catchy tunes that will stick in your head

Kameo: Elements Of Power

Kameo: Elements Of Power

As far as launch titles go Kameo is quite impressive, but if you were expecting something radically new and different be prepared for disappointment. There are some good ideas packed in the game, but the sloppy controls and repetitive gameplay soon show through the pretty visuals. It’s not a complete disaster, but falls short of what it could have been.

Gameplay: The controls let it down a lot, but if you are a platform fan there’s fun to be had.

Graphics: Very good, but the quality is a bit uneven.

Sound: Epic soundtrack, but the usual mediocre voice acting

Just Cause

Just Cause

Just Cause starts with a bang, but runs out of steam way too early. The huge gameworld is certainly impressive, but up close the flaws are all too apparent. Once you add in easy missions, repetitive gameplay and a lot of annoying quirks the shine soon wears off. There is still loads of fun to be had by messing around, but do not expect this to be close to Grand Theft Auto.

Gameplay: Had a lot of potential, but unfortunately fall somewhat short.

Graphics: Very impressive from a distance, but not so good up close.

Sound: Not very memorable
