    F1 2011 is better than F1 2010 on all fronts. A great combination of challenging gameplay and the right race feeling makes this a must-have for all racing simulation fans.

    Take Clint Eastwood and Rango and put them in a blender and you get close to the shooter The Gunstringer. The game is a funny take on the Western-genre, with not only the graphics enjoyable but also solid gameplay. A Kinect-game that actually feels like a worthy addition to your collection.

    This second collection of ports is an ode to the growth of developer Ready at Dawn. Chains of Olympus feels like good practise, but Ghost of Sparta can stand tall next to the console God of War-games. Together they form a lovely, if not always consistent collection of adventures for Kratos to fight through.

    Burnout Crash! has some bizarre crashes, but other than that it has little to do with the franchise. It's more of a puzzle game now with a cartoon-like look, with the fun gameplay modes locked until further in the game. The birdseye view actually limits the variation in the gameplay.

    If you're looking for the most complete football game ever, stop looking. FIFA 12 has it all. And with the tweaks in gameplay it even offers a more challenging experience that will appeal to most football fanatics. What are you waiting for? Go get it!

    Dark Souls is Demon's Souls times two. A bigger world with more torture for your bucks, but also an increase in errors. The result is fantastic though: a huge game filled with secrets and a learning curve for only the most dedicated gamers.

    Technically, Rage excels. The shooter mechanics are fantastic and the enemies vary in their tactics. However, the game starts to drag towards the (sudden) end, and the save system irritates.

    Men of War: Vietnam is for the hardcore strategy players. The game will try its hardest to irritate you at all times. Even then, the game has its charm.

    The use of Kinect in Rise of Nightmares is both its strongpoint as its weakness. It immerses you in a great survival-horror experience that has enough twists and turns to keep you entertained. But at the same time, the controls deliver so many frustrating moments that we can't really recommend it.

    This is a collection of six small games, of which one is actually fun to play. It's difficult to recommend this game for full price.

    You should ask yourself if you are satisfied with more of the same. Were the two adventures of DeathSpank enough for you? The small changes can't cover up the signs of weariness that's creeping in this series.

    Despite the lack of online multiplayer, Star Fox 64 3D is almost as captivating as the original fourteen years back. The short lifespan of the game is somewhat compensated by the local multiplayer.

    Tropico 4 is hardly a new game at all. It feels and looks like the third game in the series and improves on only a few levels. At the same time, Tropico 4 is one of the better tycoon games in the past years. People who've missed the third game or fans that want more can rest easy and plan a vacation to this tropical paradise.

    It does not happen very often that there's nothing positive to mention about a game, but Bodycount manages. The controls aren't adequate, the destruction and AI are largely missing and the scoring-system is misplaced. For a game that's supposed to be inspired by Black it's a slap in the face of gamers.

    If Resistance 3 turns out to be the last game in the series, Insomniac can look back without any shame. The series hasn't gone out like a candle, but like fireworks. Sometimes the game is a little rough around the edges, but at the end of the ride you have enjoyed yourself, screamed and laughed. That's more than we expected from a developer who had little experience in the genre at the start of this trilogy.

    A Japanese RPG that is challenging and refreshing enough for players that have seen all the other examples in the genre, while being easy on newcomers. The fantastic, enormous gameworld makes this an absolute classic on Wii and one of the best RPG's of the last ten years.

    The campaign may be a little short and rough around the edges, but it still is a great adventure that should not be missed by the fans and should be given a try by people unknown with the Warhammer universe.

    Gears of War 3 isn't filled with surprises, but thanks to a perfect pace and constant new set pieces, the game remains in your disc drive to the end. Thanks to the multiplayer – which is easy on newcomers – the durability of the game is also an impressive feature. Epic has listened to the community, used the feedback and created a fantastic closing chapter in this trilogy.

    At first you think Shadow Planet is all about the original looks, but the more you play, the more you realise this game gives your brain enough complex situations to keep you occupied for hours on end.

    Pure strategy, complex but solid controls and an irresistible multiplayer make Frozen Synapse a surprise hit. It's not a beautiful looking game, but ignore the basic presentation, because this is a game everyone should try at least once.

    Don't let the playful title fool you. Toy Soldiers Cold War can stand its ground between the big wargames. You'll find plenty of action, a challenge and basically a game that will appeal to a lot of gamers.

    If you are looking for a serious fitnessgame to really train your condition, UFC comes close. If you have the proper motivation that is, because the game itself sure isn't going to motivate you.

    Driver: San Francisco is not like the previous Driver games. A lot has changed since the beginning of the series, and not all for the better. We take for granted that the premise of the story is ludicrous, but we can't escape the feeling that the racing itself is also being pushed to the background.

    This game is all about the looks: the imagery on offer here is simply spectacular. But what is the message? We have no clue. The gameplay is lacking and overly simplistic. If you're looking for the next "art-game", look no further, but don't expect to play something that's truly fun.

    Do you love zombies? Then you can live out your fantasy on this tropical island, bashing their faces in and cutting their bodies with baseball bats, knives and guns. But that's all there is to do in Dead Island. The different genres that are combined here don't gel together so well and the game has no story whatsoever. Dead Island doesn't deliver on its premise, but hey, it does have thousands of zombies, and that makes it somewhat fun.
