    If you're into rpgs, or rather if you love roleplaying in general, there's really no need to waste time reading any reviews of this game. The same goes if you regard games like Planescape: Torment, Fallout 2 and the Baldurs Gate-series among the best computer games ever made. Because this game is everything a person like you look for in a game, and so much more. Be aware though, Dragon Age: Origins is not a revolution of the genre, rather it is an evolution, where Bioware has refined everything that made them into a formula as close to perfection as possible. Without a doubt one of the strongest Game of the year-candidates so far this year and a game we will remember with warm feelings many years to come.

    Plants vs. Zombies is not just one of the best tower defense games out there, it also gives you a tremendous value for the mere 10 euro you pay for it. PopCap has really surpassed anything they have done before with this game’s beautiful graphics, depth and modes that will keep you busy for months. You’ll love every minute of it.

    Platform magic on the highest level for the Wii. While the game offers almost everything you could ask for, it falls just a little short of perfect for a few small reasons. The main reason being that's it a tiny bit short in playtime, and the second being that while Wiimote-controls work great, you can't help but wonder if it wouldn't have worked just as good with a normal control. But considering how much gaming joy the game offers, there's no point in getting stuck on those details. This will probably be a given game on any Nintendo Wii-owners wishlist this Christmas.

    The professor's second adventure is just as good as the first one. Level-5 has managed to maintain a high standard of puzzles as well as a superb storyline with memorable characters and great dialogue.

    Heavy Metal aesthetics, Jack Black and videogames in the best of all combinations, this is a must buy for any fan of heavy music or Tim Schafer games. The gameplay can be a bit unpolished here and there, but all in all Brütal Legend delivers a compact and unique gaming experience, unlike anything else you will play this year.

    Monster Hunter Freedom Unite offers everything to everyone. There is no PSP game today that sports the same depth and amount of game time and even though you might think the genre of action role-playing isn’t for you, think again because this is the best thing that has happened to the console in a long time.

    It wouldn’t be fair to judge Tekken 6 by its lousy campaign mode or broken net code. Because when it comes to the game mechanics, which is the most important element in a fighting game, Tekken 6 is so close to perfection that it’s actually hard to imagine how the developers are going to expand it further. Without a doubt, the most polished fighting game of the year.

    An epic adventure that shakes things up quite a bit yet still manages to retain the elements that've made the series great.

    For a newcomer to the Pokémon world, this is a fantastic introduction. Despite its vast amount of gameplay and depth Pokémon Platinum is never overwhelming, but a wonderful and accessible gaming experience with much content.

    Modern Warfare 2 is an intense ride from start to finish with varied environments and fast paced action in true Infinity Ward fashion. Though the single-player campaign may be only a few hours long the improved multiplayer and Special-Ops co-op missions will keep you busy for months.

    Mass Effect 2 improves in almost every way on its predecessor by offering smoother and more action-based combat while still retaining the quintessential interactive storytelling that's always been the hallmark of Bioware games. This seamless melding of genres results in an unparalleled sci-fi epic.

    A rollicking adventure without a dull moment. The engaging cast of characters, rock-solid gameplay and stunning visuals make for a game that's pure joy from the beginning to the end.

    Football Manager 2010 is the best edition in Sports Interactive's manager series so far. It’s almost perfect because of delicate improvements and perfectly weighed new additions. All that it lacks for a perfect 10 is a better 3D engine. Perhaps next year then.

    The latest incarnation of Electronic Arts sandbox game is also the best so far. The Sims 3 takes the core of the series and wraps great graphics around it, as well as an open town and more playability. That makes you forgive the lack of real news in the game.

    Batman Arkham Asylum is by far the biggest surprise this year. This is not only a great game based on a license, this is one of the top titles this year. Rocksteady has put everything that's cool with Batman and his villains in this game, and it all works astonishingly. However, this epic tale is surprisingly over before you know it, not only because it's a short game, but also because you're having so much fun while playing it.

    Modern Warfare 2 is the best Call of Duty game ever. Thus it's also the best action game multiplayer experience ever. Hence it’s also a must buy. Don’t listen to the haters who claim that Infinity Ward has ruined the experience for PC gamers. The truth is that Infinity Ward has made the multiplayer experience tighter, better and more intense. For once you don’t have to pay heed to the famous Public Enemy quote ”Don’t belive the hype”.

    The concept of Marios action rpg Paper Mario/Mario & Luigi are known to be good. The latest title takes place inside Bowser's body and, of course, makes it a bit different from the earlier games. But it's a fun twist of both story and gameplay, and with all the qualities in the game it makes Bowser's Inside Story one of the best games for the DS 2009.

    God of War III delivers the same riveting experience as its predecessors. While there isn't much innovation beyond the stunning visuals the core concept still remains sound. It's the most refined entry in the series and a worthy conclusion to the epic God of War saga.

    The total destruction and mayhem you can cause brings joy above anything else ever seen before. Along with an outstanding campaign Red Faction: Guerrilla sports awesome multiplayer modes which are spiced up with the addition of backpacks that gives you special powers. Sheer gaming joy!

    NHL 10 delivers on all fronts, much like it's predecessor. In fact, this game is very much like last years edition, only with new rosters and a couple of new gameplay features. If you already own NHL 09 you're better of waiting for the price to drop a bit. Still thou, this is as close as you get to the perfect sports game.

    The game says it best itself in one of its loading screen quotes: “It’s good to be bad, but it’s better to be evil”. In Overlord 2 you are evil indeed and it’s damn good fun all the way through commanding your minions and wreaking havoc upon mankind.

    It may share its name with the guitar-oriented brother, but DJ Hero actually enters the stage with a few new ideas up it's sleeve. The turntable is a nightmare for everyone allergic to plastic, but it works, and it works well. The game is really fun to play, and some poor mixes doesn't matter when Daft Punk enters the stage with a blistering set. In all, this is the most exciting music-based game this year.

    The Ballad of Gay Tony is the colorful climax to the GTA4 trilogy and it really makes Rockstar's latest part in the series go out with a bang. Rockstar has really nailed the concept of episodic gaming.

    Just like with Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection this is a successful adaptation of the original game to the portable format.

    Content wise ridiculously generous compared to its predecessor, but the modified physics will most certainly not please everyone. Once adjusted, though, there is really not much not to love about the game since it improves on pretty much everything, as well as adding tons of new stuff, since last time around.

    DiRT 2 has almost everything we want from a rally game and codemasters has really shown now what they are capable of with this game. If you enjoy your rally then you won't get disappointed when you put this disc into your machine. Gentlemen, start your engines!
