    The co-op works better than ever, the atmosphere is dense and the scale is more massive than expected.

    FIFA 10 is the reference for license-driven soccer. Intriguing gameplay, brilliant graphics and the huge amount of different modes are driving the series towards perfection.

    Silent Hill Shattered Memories is a special game, in which you don’t fight, you just run for your life. Not only Wii players looking for a nice thrill ride should have a look at this game.

    Okami resembles a fairy tale more than a videogame. It reminds us more than once of Twilight Princess.

    Crazy and varied gameplay. Bangai-O Spirits is a must-have for shooter fans on the Nintendo DS.

    Awakening is a superb expansion to Bioware's role-playing epic and delivers 20+ hours of exciting adventures in Ferelden. The gameplay changes compared to the main game are minimal.

    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.

    A very good sequel to Assassin's Creed 2, with an impressive atmosphere, a lot of diversion and a great multiplayer-mode. There are some issues that could have been done better, but in the end they don't matter anyway.

    RPG unites with puzzle game and results in Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes - a very good DS game.

    The horror genre has a new king: Dead Space excels in all disciplines - whether it’s playability, atmosphere, tension or presentation. An absolute must-have for all horror- and action-fans.

    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 humor of Battlefield Bad Company 2 makes you laugh and the thrilling action makes you shiver – Great game.

    Street Fighter IV doesn’t have the potential to dethrone genre kings like the Smash Bros. or Soul Calibur. Still, it’s a great game and one of the best Beat’em Ups out there.

    Metro 2033 is a well-scripted shooter in a highly atmospheric post apocalyptic world. Well done, THQ!

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

    It doesn't reinvent the genre. But it's more fun than ever to play the game in band mode.

    Lots of action and stunning visuals, but fans of the earlier RE episodes could be disappointed by the lack of goose-bump moments.

    There are more highlights in the first two missions of Black Ops, then in Medal of Honor. The requirements of Treyarch seemed to be better, than in the past few years. They made an interesting setting. In addition, there's a nice zombie mode and an overwhelming multiplayer. No doubt, this is Treyarchs best Call of Duty ever!

    The F.E.A.R. series is top notch when it comes to digital horror. Very good sequel of a horror classic.

    Colin McRae: DiRT 2 is a pretty good mixture between a complex simulation and an action-based racer thanks to its compelling presentation.

    Guitar Hero: World Tour wants everything, but can’t reach one little thing: to dethrone the big competitor Rock Band in terms of group fun. Too many technical difficulties with the drum set , too little “We are rock gods”-feeling.

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

    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!
