    Double Combos, Team-Matches and ten new Fighters – Super Street Fighter IV is an awesome and well-balanced Beat em Up that clearly beats standard Street Fighter IV.

    Super-realistic and complex simulation. A dream for every soccer fan.

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

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

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

    Short, but fun experience in the Halo universe.

    At first glance, Dead Space 2 looks like its predecessor. But if you're looking at the fine details, this is an even better game than the original.

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

    The most authentic Formula 1 simulation to date – bravo, Codemasters!

    Fifa 12 may not be as well balanced as the predecessor, but the multitude of features compensates for that very well. A very good soccer simulation.

    Mortal Kombat has finally made the jump to the current console generation. And the result is a true Mortal Kombat offering great fights and even greater finishing moves.

    Coming with a slightly annoying 3D feature powered by nVidia 3d Vision, but beside this technical gimmick, there is not much difference from the Xbox 360 version – which is definitely not a bad thing!

    Demon's Souls: Unbelievably hard and unbelievably satisfying at the same time. If you accomplish to get through your initial rage attacks, you will experience an outstanding action-RPG with a tense and dark atmosphere.

    One of the most authentic racing games of all time – unfortunately, not the best of all time. One of the things that holds it back is the sometimes unfair enemy AI.

    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit reminds me of the first part of the assassin's creed-series. In general, the game is great, but it's missing variety and long-time motivation. Especially the number of time trials shouldn't have been this high. Races and pursuits are much more fun. The small amount of about 100 cars doesn't really matter, because all of them were done well, although some them have only 300 PS. Altogether, it's a great action-racing-game, but there is maybe more potential for Hot Pursuit 2.

    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 technology of the newest part of the fallout series is over aged and besides the hardcore mode and the reputation-system, the new features of New Vegas are manageable. But altogether, New Vegas is a successful new part and not just an add-on, with more than 100 hours of gaming, an interesting story and a new setting to explore.

    No doubt, Two Worlds 2 is a great role-playing game with a fantastic presentation, an enormous world and an innovative magic-spell system. But on the other side, the inventory is very confusing and the characters are missing some details. Also there are also lags in the PS3 version.

    As soon as you get behind the tricky controls, the killing of the robot-armies is fun. Sadly, the campaign of the action-blockbuster is very short.

    Fabulous action game with nice riddles and cool fights, but with lacks in camera perspectives.

    Ace Combat: Assault Horizon offers lots of action and diversity and leaves Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. behind.

    The best and most spectacular Motorstorm so far, but it still has some minor annoyances.
