    This game is a masterpiece! We have never seen such a harmonic virtual world before. The story is as good as a movie and the graphics offer tons of incredible moments. GTA IV is more than a game.

    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.

    Uncharted 2 is one of the most memorable video games ever created. Not because it is particularly innovative, but because the mixture of shooting, climbing, creeping, thinking, laughing and simple astonishment works perfectly.

    The recipe is easy: More action, less roleplaying. Oh boy, Mass Effect 2 is a fun game!

    Little Big Planet is something for everyone. Inventors enjoy the extensive level editor, friends of action-packed Jump & Runs enjoy 50 levels. Still, the biggest fun is to explore the planet together with friends.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 comfortable gameplay and brilliant cut scenes make Metal Gear Solid 4 a great stealth shooter. There are only two disadvantages: the story is confusing and the boss fights are not as tactical as before.

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

    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?

    After this game-experience negative points are hard to find. Sure, the radio program is not mind-blowing and the third-person-view is suboptimal. But this doesn’t matter, as Fallout 3 is wonderful and even a class better than Bethesda’s last title - Oblivion.

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

    To be honest, Rock Band is way too expensive. But is it less fun because of the price? No! The concept works perfectly, the story mode is motivating ‘till the end and the diversity of songs is excellent.

    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.
