    Uncharted 2 is one of the most memorable video games ever created. Not because it is particularly innovative, but because the mixture of shooting, climbing, creeping, thinking, laughing and simple astonishment works perfectly.

    Little Big Planet is something for everyone. Inventors enjoy the extensive level editor, friends of action-packed Jump & Runs enjoy 50 levels. Still, the biggest fun is to explore the planet together with friends.

    The story presentation is bleak, the cut-scenes weak. But these are my only two criticisms, because everything else rocks! Brilliant technology, suspenseful fights, a hard, but never unfair difficulty, nice weapons and stunning enemies. Shooter-heart, what more do you desire?

    Batman's trip to the asylum has hardly any flaws. The controls fit perfectly and the missions will entertain you every second you play this game. Buy it, play it, love it.

    Far Cry 2 has its annoying quirks, no doubt. But they can be solved via patch – the quality of fights, atmosphere, graphics and gameplay still reaches a very high level.

    Killzone 3 is the best entry in the series so far and one of the best shooters of all time. The game is the new genre king and sets the visual bar very, very high for future PS3 games.

    The PC version of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is definitely the best one. Combined with the best game in the series, this is a must-buy title.

    The king is dead. Long live the king! Red Dead Redemption is the new milestone in the history of Open-World-Games and an adventure that is epic in almost every respect – the suspenseful story, the exciting missions, the phenomenal panorama view – if you ignore the small glitches and bugs RDR could be your Game of the Year.

    Starcraft 2 is the best RTS in years. It doesn't reinvent the genre, but pushes it to new heights due to the dense atmosphere, great balancing and diverse missions. Only one question remains: How long will we have to wait this time, Blizzard?

    We enjoyed PES 2010's slower pacing, but FIFA 10 is slightly better. Especially FIFA's extensive licenses are missing from PES 2010.
