    Tomb Raider is trying to tell Lara’s origin story in a mature fashion, and it somewhat succeeds by depicting the island as an organic living being, and making sure Lara is a believable character with great performances by actress Camilla Luddington. The rest of the game is less impressive, with the sheer amount of jarring enemies, stale combat and tacked on multiplayer.

    Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective offers a great and eccentric cast, well-written dialogue and a unique take on the point-and-click genre. If you skipped the Nintendo DS release you should not let this one pass by unnoticed.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops has a solid and fun multiplayer, and the best story in a Call of Duty-game yet. Despite this, it has got issues with arbitrary and unnecessary design. It isn´t as tight as its predecessor, and unless you are either not a fan of singleplayer story, og just plain tired of the multiplayer in Modern Warfare 2, the latter is still the better game.

    Turn 10 makes amends for a lackluster fifth installment with a solid racing game. Packed with 26 tracks both old and new, and 460 cars makes this a massive game. The driving and feedback is better than ever before, and night and rain has a huge impact on the gameplay. Forza has never looked better.

    Konami’s hard work has finally paid off. The gameplay feels more dynamic, precise and balanced than ever before. PES 2016 is a new high for the series, and is arguably the best football game of the year. Let’s hope for more of the same in the coming years.

    Divinity: Original Sin delivers an old school RPG experience in a fresh and attractive package. The world is open and massive, and a fabulous soundtrack sets the mood perfectly. This game does not hold your hand, but let's you think, fail or succeed by your own merits. Exactly what we wanted.

    A good and punishing rogue-like which is just as easy to hate as it is to love. As you explore the random levels this really challenging 2-D platformer will make you cry and laugh at the same time. You’ll need high concentration and a big chunk of patience to have fun with this one. Spelunky is just as fun on the PC as it was one year ago on the Xbox 360, and the gaming masochists’ very best friend.

    Europa Universalis IV delivers the most in-depth, historically accurate grand strategy game to date. It’s a complex game that simulates almost 400 years of European history and offers hundreds of hours of intense and educational entertainment for potential world-conquerors.

    Pikmin 3 is a cute game with plenty of soul. It takes the concept from the two previous games one step further with the way it combines tactics with roleplaying. In terms of graphics this is probably the most beautiful game the world has ever seen on a Nintendo console.

    Who knew a stroll into Arts and Crafts land could be this much fun? Kirby's latest adventure is a pure joy, and although it's a bit on the easy side, it'll keep you very entertained from start to finish without even flinching.

    2K Games delivers a new way of playing career mode. With a story directed by Spike Lee, NBA 2K16 makes you want to hate it and love it at the same time. The cliché story might be a little over the top, but the gameplay itself is still very strong, making it probably the best basketball game out there to date.

    Fall of the Samurai is a good expansion pack for one of the best strategy games of 2011. It gives a great history lesson about en epoch in japanese history the western hemisphere tend to forget. Furthermore, it is the first time the Total War franchise shows the staggering effect the industrial revolution had on military warfare - evolve or die.

    The story, characters and action sequences all add up to one of the best experiences video games has to offer. Every PlayStation 4 owner should have this in their library.

    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.

    Velocity 2X might look and feel a bit simple, but beneath that lies a rather entertaining hybrid of a shoot-em-up and a 2D platformer. It works best in small doses rather than long play sessions, but manages to score a lot of points on charm, aesthetic and tight game design.

    Saints Row just got bigger, and even more crazy then ever. After an alien invasion you get stuck in a virtual Steelport. Superpowers, warmongering aliens, crazy minigames and a compelling story make number four the best in the series.

    Titanfall is a great multiplayer experience, with lots of variety, both in how you move around, the challenges that drive you forward and the multiple, exciting ways to dispatch your enemies.

    Blizzard's newest expansion keeps StarCraft II as the king of real time strategy, even though I'm not a huge fan of the narrative. The campaign is composed of well-crafted and varied missions, while multiplayer also offers some new and interesting additions to the formula.

    Capitalizing on the recent flow of word games seems to have paid of. Puzzlejuize is a great blend between Tetris and Boggle, and mixing spelling and stacking becomes second nature after a little while.

    Hank Hazard is good at unveiling its elements through the many good levels, and the general visuals bears comparison to many a cartoon mascot. The game does not try to invent the genre anew but is an enjoyable experience anyway.

    Although amendments have been made to cater Crysis 2 to a multi-platform audience, it is still a fun game for shooter enthusiasts. It's brilliant use of the nanosuit, high production values and good weapon physics make Crysis 2 a great first person shooter in singleplayer and multiplayer.

    This emotional and powerful story about two brothers and their sacrifice is told in a way that’ll make you take a step back think. Starbreeze tells us multiple stories, all set in a brutal and unfair world, where family is everything that matters. The control system is quite unique and will probably not suite everybody, but they are interesting enough to make even the simplest puzzles exciting.

    To me, this series is a perfect example of a video game larger than the sport it simulates. You don't have to be a ice hockey fan to enjoy it, nor do you need to be an avid gamer to understand its magic. This is one of the greatest sports games of all time.

    Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is probably the weakest in the series, yet it’s not a bad game. It gives you just about what you’d expect, but not so much more than that. The dynamic sailing experience is one of the highlights, and the naval battles with the subsequent boarding of enemy ships will stick to your mind.

    In all it's familiarity the Diabloesque gameplay sucks you in, but it is the beautiful word, the brilliant music, and the genius voice over that keeps you going. Bastion might be a game, but it's much more a fascinating fairy tale told in real time.

    A fun and colourful mix of platform and racing. It won't set your world on fire, but is a solid downloadable title well worth checking.

    Lara truly shines in her newest game, with a sprawling world to explore and a great set of skills at her disposal. If only the world had been even bigger, with more hub areas and even more to do, this could easily have been a truly astonishing game.

    Forza Horizon 2 is a great racing game, and with its sprawling open world, a huge variety of cars and a clever mix of arcade and simulation, it might be one of the best in quite some time.

    Enemy Within delivers a huge amount of good content that gives the player a plethora of new tactical options. This is just what the doctor ordered for Enemy Unknown, prolonging the game with hours of fun.

    A solid, safe and well-made port to the PlayStation 4. Pretty visuals, hours of gameplay and solid combat makes this one of the best massive online games for console to date.
