    Year after year FIFA 11 is getting a little better. EA has made probably the perfect football game with FIFA 11.

    Who's the Daddy? You are - if you choose to play this brilliant action game.

    Even though it couldn't quite hold up to our expectations, Mafia 2 is a great game which is driven by the narrative. This is a big plus in a gaming world where deep, believable characters are the exception, not the rule. If you want a truly cinematic experience, go out and buy the game - you won't be disappointed.

    Today is your lucky day, because you, dear Sir, have found a valuable advice: Don't miss this excellent Beat 'em Up! Maybe the anime style and the poor presentation of the story may scare you. But beyond that there lies a game with polished 2D optics, a deep fighting system and characters that feel unique and special.

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

    If you don't care for even more licenses, than you can also choose the predecessor. But Football Manager 2012 is the better game.

    Compared with Gran Turismo 5, Forza 4 is the better title and one of the best racing games on the market.

    More realistic and a better atmosphere than ever – definitely the best FIFA-game up to date.

    There a few things that we do not like on the PC (controls for example). But this conversion is a lot better than the catastrophe that Resident Evil 4 was on the PC.

    With a gripping fighting system, lots of diversity and a great atmosphere, Batman: Arkham City is one of the best superhero games out there. Some may even say it is one of the best games of all time.

    Dragon Age 2 is a great RPG for PC and consoles, but it lacks a bit of complexity.

    Graphics-wise, Battlefield 3 rocks. But not only are the visuals stunning. With a nice campaign and one of the best multiplayer modes out there, Battlefield 3 makes Call of Duty look old.

    Go, NfS! I had serious doubts about this one, but it delivers like a Porsche.

    The controls don't feel as dynamic as on the Playstation 3 but the game bursts with content and the story is just brilliant. Fans of the series should not miss MGS: Peacewalker.

    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.

    Brütal Legend comes with many cool ideas and a great soundtrack. Nevertheless, the boss fights could be more challenging and the controls are sometimes annoying.

    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.

    Heavy Rain is thoroughly unusual. Rarely before, a game has been as emotionally haunting as this one. Furthermore, the replay value is very high, because of the different endings.

    Napoleon: Total War doesn't topple Empire: TW, but the new setting sets you back in the Napoleon Wars. The game is really worth a look.

    Kickass jumps and stunts as well as fun optimized courses bring you pure racing action. Some more gameplay modes would have made it a real hit.

    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.

    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.

    Chrono Trigger rightfully climbs to the olymp of roleplaying games. Charming graphics, great story and a neat combat system make this classic an instant hit on the NDS!

    Just Cause 2 is a good, but not perfect mixture of GTA and Boiling Point. It offers a huge playground for every action gamer - supported by beautiful graphics.

    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.

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