    Bungie says a fond farewell with Reach. The Single Players does nothing new as supposed to the previous games, but Reach is more defined by its excellent depth in multi player than anything else.

    Forza 4 gives us the most complete experience of all the Forza games. The physics are better, the multiplayer and career modes are improved and there are more cars and tracks than ever before. But there are few truly new features for the racing enthusiast. Where is the dynamic weather and night racing?

    Gears of War 3 is the definite pinnacle of the series. The third chapter about Marcus Fenix and his gang of brutes is exciting from start to end, and an incarnation of everything that Epic Games has learned during the last five years.

    Dark Souls II takes everything built up with the two previous games, improves upon it and results in a fantastic action adventure. Hard as nails, and equally satisfying gameplay with a good variety of bosses and enemies.

    While the overall improvements aren't too severe, the new tackling and physics systems drastically change how the game is played. FIFA 12 feels like an entirely new game in many ways, the question is whether you're ready to try something new or not.

    Trials Evolution lives up to its name by offering a better learning curve, visuals, environments and multiplayer integration than its predecessor. At 1200 MS points, this is easily one of the best value Xbox Live Arcade games in years.

    A brilliant remake of one of the best Zelda games ever made. The motion control is fun, but at the same time limited to the technology today. Although I miss the opportunity to make notes on the map, this is the same fantastic game you remember.

    The whole game is over far too quickly, and the whole feels too fragmented and superficial to stand among the best. Aesthetically, the game is exceedingly interesting, but the interactions are somewhat trite. Still, its conceptual uniqueness makes it a game worth playing.

    Stunningly beautiful and hauntingly atmospheric, Limbo is a modern day masterpiece. The puzzles are balanced and intelligent, and the art direction is phenomenal. This is one of the classics you owe yourself to experience.

    Mario is back! In a classic Mario-fashion you jump your way througheight worlds, where you battle goombas, koopas and the main meaniehimself, Bowser. This game is never particularly difficult, butgradually advanced to a challenge that feels just perfect. Fun, varied and guaranteed to make you smile.

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution offers incredibly flexible game play, a strong role-playing system, tons of action and a quite good story. All taking place in a dark and intriguing future. It is up to you to determine whether humankind will go forward as either man or machine.

    The series is back where it all began and Shogun 2 is both at tribute to the original and a testament to how far the series have come. It's a solid game with excellent gameplay, but prone to becoming a bit monotone after several playthroughs.

    With it its isometric perspective, real time combat system, great focus on roleplaying and a decent chunk of side content, Pillars of Eternity is a giant ball of playable nostalgia. You don't have to have played Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale to get the most out of this gem of a game. It fits just as well for new players as it does for old veterans.

    It's been a while since I've played a game that deserves a top score as much as Rayman Legends. It's a thrill from start to finish, and I grinned from ear to ear each time something new and exciting happened.

    Recycling weapons has never been this fun. Borderlands improves and expands on everything in the predecessor. It's bigger, better and even more hilarious than anything you could have hoped for.

    Much like Link's Awakening before it, Majora's Mask takes familiar Legend of Zelda clich├ęs and turns them on their heads. It still works as a Zelda game, while it feels fresh and new at the same time. In spite of being a fifteen year old game it holds up incredibly well, and the improvements made in the 3DS version only adds to the experience.

    There's nothing you haven't seen before. It only takes a bright solid, arch-depressive medieval world, mixes it with a fantastic battle system and pushing the limits of your patience to the extreme. The result is unique in all the right ways.

    This game is huge, addictive and polished in every single manner. When it all comes to it, Hot Pursuit captures the very essence of what a racing game should be - fun.

    Fez
    Fez pulls you in with its unique premise and forces you to change your perspective and solve puzzles in new and inventive ways. Beneath the cutesy retraux visuals and simple platforming lies one of the most fiendishly deep puzzle experiences in 2012.

    This game definitely isn't perfect, but it is the most solid addition to the FIFA franchise thus far. FIFA 11 represents the greatest and most mature simulation of football in a video game to this date.

    L.A. Noire does a lot of things right, and the fantastic facial animations alone make it worth a closer look. That being said, the game is not flawless, and there is quite a bit of work to do if there is to be a sequel.

    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.

    Although its single player campaign lacks some inspiration, Battlefield 3 stands out as the pinnacle of modern day war-based first-person shooters. With its astounding visuals, sound effects and addictive multiplayer gameplay, it's a game that will be played and loved for a very long time.

    Dead Space 2 is clearly streamlined to cater to a more trigger happy demographic than its prequel. I wish this game was scarier, but there's no denying that it is a great game nonetheless.

    As one of the few franchises that can challenge the EA Sports hegemony, NBA 2K11 isn't only a great addition to a good sports series. It is compelling, challenging and competitive, and might very well be the best basketball game to date.

    If you push yourself through this nightmare and its spiritual prequel, you will find that you enjoy modern games a lot more. Dark Souls lacks the open structure of Demon's Souls, but might be even more rewarding.

    Modern Warfare 3 doesn't reinvent gunpowder, but sticks to the recipe of the previous games in the series. With a decent story and good multiplayer it's a game worth playing, but the lack of willingness to add improvements in gameplay show a laziness often found in a complacent game series.

    The PC version of Assassins Creed: Brotherhood offers updated graphics and reduced loading times to give you the ultimate assassin experience. Relive 16th century Rome like never before and lose yourself in this epic action game. Rome has never been this beautiful.
