    Crysis is a great shooter and brings the current generation to its limits. The visuals offered are some of the best you will ever see and the gameplay doesn't lack behind. You won't be disappointed.

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

    I’m happy for you Pro Evo, and I’mma let you finish, but FIFA World Cup 2010 is the greatest Soccer-Simulation of all time. Excellent atmosphere and lots of improvements make FIFA the champion.

    For those who never experienced Ocarina: Play this visually enhanced version. For those who already played it, there is little incentive to do it again on the 3DS, since there is nothing new.

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

    I never knew it, but there's a killer beast inside me! And all it took was Fight Night Round 4: Stunning graphics, a thrilling soundtrack and a challenging career mode make this game an intense experience!

    Great visuals, nice controls and electrifying action - That's how it's supposed to be. Granted, it’s not an innovation masterpiece but it delivers some great hours of fun.

    Codemasters celebrates the racing circus with such enthusiasm that the gamer can’t resist. This game is surprisingly well done.

    Perfectly staged WWII shooter with impressive audio-visual quality. Nevertheless, we want a new, refreshing scenario for the sequel!

    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.

    Skate 3 is an (almost) perfect skateboard simulation. It eliminates many failures of its predecessor such as the bad walking controls. The skating is easy to learn and the create-a-park editor extends the experience. Well done!

    Why do cars, pedestrians and the menu structure still have to be so annoying? Nevertheless it’s a great sequel and arguably the best skating game out there.

    Looking for errors in this game is pretty hard, but the sluggish controls and small AI quirks prevent Empire: Total War from scoring perfect. Still, it’s a feast for every strategist.

    Crash and burn! Split/Second is action-packed and furious fun with a cool 'Powerplay' feature making it possible for you to cause gigantic explosions. This is the legitimate successor of Burnout! It's only obvious weakness is the spare multiplayer mode.

    Dawn of Discovery is very complex, but has a boring campaign. The interface is a bit confusing and there is no multiplayer mode. Still, it’s a great strategy game but not as good as the predecessor.

    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.

    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.

    No doubt – Mass Effect 2 for PS3 is one of the best RPGs ever made. But compared to the older X360- and PC-versions, the differences are minimal.

    The fall of the King! Although PES 2009 is better than its predecessor, it loses the duel against an extremely strong FIFA 09.

    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.

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