    As much fun as Guitar Hero - and perfect for any party. The music is great, but we miss some more game modes.

    Zelda fans are going to love this - but the multiplayer mode is a little bit boring.

    Kratos slices himself amazingly through Gods and their Minions. God of War 3 is the Olympus of action games.

    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?

    Although there are not that many innovations - challenging levels, ingenious level design and a high degree of variety make Super Mario Galaxy the best Jump 'n' Run on the market.

    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.

    Portal 2 is a masterpiece and more than a worthy successor to one of the most innovative games in years.

    Diversified missions, an exciting storyline, a smart enemy AI and the impressive visuals make Gears of War 3 the best Xbox 360 shooter to date. Period.

    Uncharted 3 is a must have title for every PS3 owner. Seriously, buy this game.

    2004, back when Gran Turismo PSP was announced, is a long time ago. Gran Turismo PSP delivers, but it doesn't fulfill our enormous expectations.

    The landscape is unbelievably beautiful, the battles are full of action. But why doesn’t the PvP ranking work? Where are quests for high-level character? Somewhere in Age of Conan rests the great World-of-Warcraft-killer. It’s time to wake up!

    If you can’t wait to run to the next store and buy Mass Effect now, you should be aware of one thing: Its luxurious graphics need a luxurious PC.

    Although the singleplayer mode has been improved, the game is most fun if played together with friends.

    Whoever enters Albion is going to find heaps of fun. The game draws a charming, coherent and above all extremely humorous fantasy world. Neither core nor casual, simply good!

    Left 4 Dead proves that zombies don’t have to be dumb and slow! The game’s definite pro is its brilliant versus mode. The campaign mode is nice to have, but nothing more.

    The open-world racer convinced us with its extensive tuning part and sophisticated graphics. Only the missions and events could offer more variation.

    Faster, Harder, Fisher. The new Splinter Cell is more action-oriented and offers an atmospheric presentation and high tension. Some will miss the traditional stealth gameplay, others welcome the fresh ideas.

    Next gen graphics and successful innovations in the fighting system make this one a strong part of the cult series.

    At first glance its graphics will simply blow you away. Unfortunately the looks are the only truly sensational thing about this game. Sure, level design and AI are outstanding. But whoever was hoping for the Uber-Shooter could be disappointed by the lackluster boss fights and the mediocre weapon and enemy variety. Still: Whoever owns a PS3 has to play this game!
