    Doom 3: BFG Edition is the epitome of an old-school first-person shooter, and while it still holds up quite well compared to today's mastodons the age of eight long years seems to weigh in on the game. The shooting is not as compelling anymore, the scares is often bland and repetitive and overall the changes Id Software has implemented is not all that great.

    Football Manager 2013 has inherited its throne as the #1 manager simulator. Don't expect a revolution, but a few tweaks here and there, and the addition of a couple of new game modes mean this year's release does just enough to be a must-buy for fans of the series.

    Need for Speed: Most Wanted is a hybrid that combines Criterion's long-living Burnout-franchise, i.e. fun gameplay, fast paced action and exceptional driving, with the mechanics and elements that made the original Most Wanted so great in the first place, making for one of the best racing-games this side of 2010.

    King's Bounty: Warriors of the North doesn't do anything new, but it's still a hugely enjoyable game that offers tons of content. I wish Katauri would make a full sequel, but until that happens, this will provide hours of addictive fun in classic King's Bounty-style.

    The most open ended series on the planet returns. You are free to carve your own path, make allies and disrupt or keep the peace. It can be confusing and slow at times, but leaving your story is great fun.

    Guitar instructors are facing serious competition from Ubisoft. Rocksmith turns dull repetitions into a fun game, and will turn you into a much better guitarist through steady increases in challenge and difficulty.

    Heavily inspired by the likes of Dungeon Keeper, this base building game fails to achieve the greatness of it's ancestor. There's some fun here, but outside of trying to navigate your increasingly complex dungeons, it's not challenging enough.

    Driving around in virtual Europe while listening to the radio or a good podcast is a surprisingly enjoyable and relaxing experience. An acquired taste, perhaps, but still a good game.

    It's a formidable return to form for Master Chief. This gorgeous game offers thrills and challenges from start to finish, and provides a much more personal story for our hero than what we've seen before.

    An ambitious and enjoyable genre-bender marred by major AI-trouble for the units under your command, as well as some poor FPS sections. Still worth a look if you're after something different.

    A mediocre wargame that fails to impress. A short, 6-hour-long story which is hard to follow, does not hit any emotional buttons or give enough adrenalin-pumping moments. A decent multiplayer, but nothing that has not been done before in the genre.

    Rollercoaster Tycoon 3D does little to capture the magic and joy of Chris Sawyer's original theme park simulator. Everything's been dumbed down and compacted to fit onto a 3DS game card, and the game ends up feeling severely stunted because of this.

    Exploring the beautifully rendered American east coast during the 16th century is a delight. The woodland nature areas provide a atmosphere and a sense of freedom that's been lacking in the series previous installments. Variation in quests, innovative and well developed systems are the game's strongest parts.

    Sound Shapes is a charming and beautiful platformer based on music and rhythm. Your goal is to collect notes and build on the song playing in the background. All the levels have a different look, with a team of graphic artists and performers combining their talents to make something truly enjoyable and unique.

    Deadlight is an amazingly beautiful game. The combination of a simplistic foreground and incredibly detailed backgrounds is breathtaking. However, the gameplay isn't as elaborate. It relies heavily on trial and error, especially in the second half of the game. This made the game both frustrating and boring.

    Rainbow Moon has simple gameplay, and a charming and colorful look. Both the look and soundtrack is very retro, and seems to be a tribute to old classics. Is you're a fan of strategic RPGs, you'll find a lot to love here. I, on the other hand, found it more of a chore.

    This episode turns the story to focus on other survivors being as big a threat as the undead. You have to decide who you can trust, and make some very difficult choices along the way. The story is a lot darker and more brutal than before, which is both thrilling and horrifying.

    In this latest installment of the series you get a story that's even darker than before. A lot of hard moral dilemmas are thrown at you, and you see the group you've come to know as a family falling apart. This episode also brings more puzzle elements than before, making it feel more like a traditional adventure game than an interactive graphic novel.

    With XCOM: Enemy Unknown Firaxis brings back a diminished genre and proves that turn based tactical gameplay is just as fun now as it was 15 years ago. With its great depth the challenging combat aspect overshadows the mediocre storyline to make this a great revival of a classic series.

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 isn't really all that new anymore. What you get is basically the same game as the first one for the Nintendo DS, but with less engaging levels, fewer surprises in terms of power-ups and gameplay, and a boring gimmick set on capturing your inner kleptomaniac.

    Pro Cycling Manager is the best cycling game on the market, not for being a great game, but because of the lack of competition. The 2012 edition makes a lot of small changes that actually makes the game worse. Even if the new multiplayer is innovative, I would rather stick with last year's version.

    Crusader Kings II is quite unique. It's focus on dynasties and family leads to original and entertaining gameplay with great depth and variation. If not for a steep learning curve, it would be close to perfect.

    Le Tour de France fails at the very core of its concept. Controlling both a team and a rider does not work, and the game is neither realistic nor entertaining. It fails in every aspect and cannot be recommended for anyone.

    This is a fun and addictive space strategy game. It doesn't quite have the character of Master of Orion 2, but it offers intelligent gameplay, smart opponents and plenty of fun while you build your interplanetary empire. Well worth trying, for both hardcore and casual strategy gamers.

    A hugely rewarding game for gamers who don't mind a challenge. Be prepared for many, many hours of exploration, in a game world that's truly memorable. The game is best played with a controller, but that should not be a problem for a PC gamer in 2012.

    A disappointing end to the trilogy. The story is often nonsensical and the puzzles tend to be to easy, while still having the kind of over-complicated solutions that wouldn't work in real life. It's mostly still fun to play, but it doesn't leave a lasting impression.

    The story of Lee gets even more twists and turns in this second to last episode. It's an action-packed race to the finish, and ends with a cliffhanger that left me on the edge of my seat, yearning for the conclusion to the story.

    The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is a decent adventure game with some interesting elements like the "deduction board". It depicts old London in a good way, but sadly it feels a bit rushed and doesn't have any lasting appeal.

    The PlayStation version of the game not only fails to improve upon the problems of the original release, it adds several new technical problems. Texture delays, blurry graphics and sound issues combines with the horrid combat system to make this a frustrating experience. Risen 2 should be considered a "PC-only" game.

    FTL offers almost everything one can ask of a rogue-like indie game. It's deep, it's varied, it's intense and quite frankly great fun. It's a must for everyone who wants a challenge and highly rewarding gameplay.
