Several countries are threatening the USA with an attack in Ubisoft's most recent stealth action game "Splinter Cell: Blacklist" under the motto "Together we are strong!" At that provocation, the US-President conscripts a new special force called "4th Echelon" under command of Sam Fisher. With help of his new team, new gadgets and also weapons you embark on a journey around the world. It's up to you, whether you prefer to sneak or to make use of Rambo-tactics - these options are both playable quite well and also allow you to achieve your objectives in its own way. Thereby not only story mode, but also multiplayer with its Spies vs. Mercs mode have become a real eyecatcher.

His faithful device appearing under the name "Magnum Opus" takes the main role in this game. Fighting with engine at standstill - not at all, as nearly every fight is decided while driving.

This year, developer EA again puts forward a new football simulation. The "FIFA" series is changed each year in favour of realism since 1993, which is the reason why it could establish itself that well. Coming "FIFA 14" won't depart from mentioned concept - that's why the developers focused on behaviour and intelligence of the virtual football players. By more intense work on ball physics, movements and dynamics, gamers should be able to have a unique experience as never seen before. There is also a new career mode, where searching for talents - with help of the scouting system - will play a huge role and where making use of it is promoted.
