    Year Walk makes shivers run down your spine like you’re actually up to your knees in Swedish snow. An uncomfortable and mysterious experience that’s worth trying for the unique style alone.

    Joe Dever's Lone Wolf - Act 2: Forest Hunt is an interactive story with beautiful imagery fights that literally shoot out of the pages. The complex RPG-elements will have you lost in the world of Magnamund before long.

    The promise of an island full of challenging puzzles makes the Witness feel a bit inauthentic. That is not a problem, as this world is created to make the player feel proud. Always keep learning is the slogan for this game because if you are not willing to understand the puzzle methods, you will not enjoy this game very much.

    Developer Game Freak shows with Pokémon Black & White that they can appeal to the veteran as well as the starting Pokémon trainer. Although the game is way too easy for the veteran Pokémon trainer, it does offer completely new and beautifully crafted environments, with an overload of new Pokémon, techniques, strategies and the triple battles are a valuable addition to the game. But because they're still too basic, Black & White aren't better than Diamond & Pearl.

    The simple combat system and the large amount of grinding make this a game for a particular type of gamer, and the lack of an online multiplayer is a missed opportunity. Nevertheless, Dragon Quest IX is a very complete RPG which will offer countless hours of fun. This is probably the prettiest and biggest RPG available on the DS right now.

    With Pokémon X and Y, GameFreak finally delivers on the big promise: a Pokémon game in which the pocket monsters actually come to life. That the game is also filled to the brim with content, makes X and Y the ultimate Pokémon generation.

    The PC version of Burnout Paradise has the word Ultimate in its title for a reason. When developer Criterion made The Ultimate Box, they put every update and patch that appeared since the release on the console into this game. By doing so, they made Burnout Paradise the perfect game for everyone who wants to race without a hassle. If one of your hobbies is to cruise in your car on a regular basis and if you aren't bothered by an undemanding difficulty level and then you will have no problem liking this game.

    This game is without a doubt the best soccer game ever. It doesn't only play like a charm, it also looks phenomenal and the number of options is huge. There is so much to do that it will be hard to try everything out before FIFA 2010. The fact that our crew works overtime just to play the game says more than enough. FIFA 09 is everything that your little soccer heart desires.

    DiRT 3 is the result of the decades of experience developer Codemasters has in the racing genre. The game merges different disciplines and forges them into a whole that make for a very powerful foundation. Just a few small misdemeanors that stand between this game, and it growing into the stuff of legend.

    Crypt of the NecroDancer is a great roguelike because of its simple, game-changing twist; you do everything you do to the rhythm of the music. The experience is magical, the soundtrack is great and the procedural generated dungeons will challenge you every time.

    Sins of a Solar Empire gives a twist to the RTS-genre. While the game isn’t very accessible for everyone, RTS-fans will really play the game until the early hours of the morning. The Phase-lines ensure the deep tactical but relax gameplay. Already one of the best RTS-games of the year.

    Ikaruga is without doubt the best arcade shooter ever made. Although the Xbox Live Arcade version isn't changed most compared to its predecessors on the Dreamcast and Gamebug, this game is absolutely worth the 800 points. The game is quite a challenge though, which might not appeal everyone. But if you like a challenge, you will be entertained for hours with this game.

    Heavy Rain is a unique experience. It’s not a traditional game, but that isn’t a problem, because the strong story, fantastic gameplay and impressive acting make up for it. An emotional adventure in the life of real characters. An interactive drama of which we would like to receive more in the future.

    Tactics Ogre: Let u Cling Together's gameplay is timeless and the choices you make bring about radical changes in the story, that make a second playthrough all the more inviting. It doesn't, however, escape certain small irritations.

    The Swapper surprises until the end. Not only thanks to interesting game mechanics and brain breaking puzzles, but also due to a philosophical story that leaves a strong impression and makes you think about the world around you. A game with a message like this shouldn't be missed.

    Pokémon SoulSilver and HeartGold are good role playing games. Only the lack of originality will offend some players. In the end, these remakes are pretty much the best and most balanced Pokémon-games out there.

    Batman: Arkham Knight is not just the best Batman-game and the best comic book game ever, the game also has one of the most fun open worlds we've ever seen in videogame history. Rocksteady perfected its formula, but did take it a bit too far with the Batmobile.

    Even on PC Max Payne 3 is an excellent game. You have the option to crank up the graphics to higher levels and the action is just a little bit more intense with mouse controls. Rockstar delivered with a great port, which misses some refinements with its multiplayer.

    DJ Hero is all about one thing: experiencing music, that one moment where you are totally in the zone and the music becomes part of you. With 93 great mashups that is no problem at all.

    ​This is a surprisingly deep puzzle game that is hard to put down. It is really down to you if you succeed, cause this game does not involve a lot of moments of luck. The longer you play, the better you will get at it.

    Forza Motorsport 6 introduces gamers with heavy rainfalls and night races and offers as much content as we are used to in this franchise. The career mode is slightly boring and nothing is revolutionary in this game, but Forza Motorsport 6 will definitely let you experience cool moments.

    It's on like Donkey Kong once more! This game just oozes the vibe of the old platformgames, and in some ways it feels even more fluid than the original series. The co-op doesn't add much though and the rolling and blowing that you can activate by shaking the Wii-controller sometimes feels contrived or downright irritating.

    There's little to complain about here. The singleplayer, multiplayer and zombie-mode ensure you won't be able to put down your controller for a long time to come. Black Ops isn't just a great game, it's a great Call of Duty. A bigger compliment can't be given to Treyarch.

    Towerfall Ascension uses many known game formula's and molds it into a hectic and entertaining whole. It's just a shame that you're forced to play offline.

    Icebreaker breaks the ice for Rovio Stars. Its fundamentals are not unlike Angry Birds and Bad Piggies, which come with wildly addicting and easy to get into puzzle gameplay in Icebreaker. But Viking Voyage is more complete and diverse than those games, because it manages to surprise with new puzzle concepts again and again, even though it's so recognizable.

    Tearaway flourishes because of the Vita's control option. They guarantee a good platformer that'll let you reshape and destroy the environment by touching it.

    FIFA 14 is a great soccer game, and this goes for the new versions as well. Not only is it prettier, but it plays better. EA doesn't do away with existing issues though.
