    A great platforming game for the 3DS. The levels look amazing, and there are plenty of surprises and exciting concepts to experience. It requires some skill, and the game sometimes feels a bit unfair. Still, it offers plenty of fun.

    Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is a fantastic combination of absurd Japanese humor and point and click mechanics. It's filled to the brim with charm, good laughs and brilliant puzzles that will keep you locked to the screen for hours on end.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops II doesn't offer a huge amount of surprises and fits rather neatly in with the rest of the series' later releases. The small changes to the formula ensure that the game is among the more interesting Call of Duty releases in a while. The robust multiplayer is among the best of the best, and will quench trigger-happy gamers' thirst for a while.

    A solid and emotional end to the series, and a game every adventure gamer should play. But not without having played the previous Blackwell games.

    This timeless classic is back and better than ever. The brilliant combat system fuses side scrolling action with classic fighting games, and together with a branching story system the game keeps you coming back.

    Transistor is esthetically pleasing with a varied and well-made combat system which offers endless possibilities and fun gameplay. Sadly, repetitive parts and lack of challenging and smart enemies makes it fall short in the end.

    A game that in many ways is the 2D equivalent of Minecraft. However, although crafting is a vital point of the game, the exploring and adventure of the game experience is just as central. Terraria therefore offers a different and compelling experience which is best served in multiplayer.

    Just Cause 2 delivers a huge amount of vehicles, tons of enemy bases and installations to liberate and gameplay so extreme that you'll end up giggling in front of the screen.

    Resistance 3 steps up to become the best game in the series, featuring a number of exciting weapons and beautifully designed levels. The horror elements mixed with the toned down story of one mans mission to make the world a better place for his family is thrilling and very enjoyable.

    Tons of content and great entertainment value from start to finish. The graphics look great, being what it is, and the games still play nearly as smooth as ten years ago, but in the end it's the hilarious script and quirky characters that make this collection utterly fantastic, trumping both Sly, Jak and Kratos.

    Lords of Shadow is an impressive next step for the Castlevania-series. It's drop dead gorgeous, and the awesome combat system will challenge you to no end.

    Monaco borrows elements from Ocean's Eleven, Thief, Prison Break and Commandos to create a great stealth game suitable for both hardcore and casual fans. The game can be played all the way through on your own, but Monaco is best experienced with three other players, allowing you to form a crack team of thieves that can steal anything that isn't nailed down.

    Despite beeing one of the gameplay-wise most compelling open-world games out there, inFamous 2 struggles with its ability to let the player immerse into the storyline. With great graphics, physics and truly fin abilities, it is fun to ravage around New Marais, but the component which are suppose to glue everything together, is partially missing.

    While the monetization could have been handled a bit better, Triple Town is none the less a great match-three puzzler. I've always appreciated quality mobile games, and this game is easily worth paying for.

    Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call is, as the rest of the games in the series, a very entertaining way to keep your brain fit. 170 puzzles test your noggin on various themes such as visual memory, logic and mathematics, and it's all wrapped up in a beautiful package.

    2010 FIFA World Cup does very little new from the excellent FIFA 10, but it's still a solid soccer game with a natural focus on international teams. Guiding your own nation to the world's biggest tournament actually feels pretty good.

    Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise is a bundle of joy that requires a basic sense of rhythm, a good muscle memory and tolerance for its childlike, eastern stile. The entire game coasts on its charm and aesthetics, as the game basically consists of hitting one or two buttons at the right time.

    It's sad to see that Kirby this time around has lost so much of his former playfulness. The varied arsenal of creative attacks has shrunk down to a pathetic gang fight where the player plays the passive role of a bystander. The game never offers a proper challenge, and even though the visuals and audio are heavily 16-bit-inspired and charming, Kirby Mass Attack never really makes you want to keep playing.

    Despite a bit of repetitiveness in the last half, Alan Wake is a spectacular, memorable experience. If you own an Xbox 360, you'll want to own this.

    Boasting gorgeous visuals and flawless animation, Dust: An Elysian Tail offers up an interesting take on a hero's journey to discover his true identity. With solid hack'n'slash mechanics to boot this is a great addition to your games library.

    Donkey Kong is back and looking better than ever. This platformer doesn't hold your hand, and offers brutal challenges along the way. Overcoming the obstacles offers a great feeling of accomplishment, and will leave you wanting more.

    While not without its limitations, WarioWare: Do It Yourself provides creative handheld gamers with a wide range of excellent game-creating tools. If you've ever entertained the idea of making your very own microgames, you'll find tons of entertainment in Wario's latest outing.

    Ys: Memories of Celceta is as traditional as it gets, with plenty of JRPG clichés, but it’s still a hell of a lot of fun to play.

    With Run Roo Run 5th Cell continues its position as a developer with an eye for interesting aesthetic. Despite its extremely easy initial levels, the last part of the game offers some small amount of platforming fun.

    Minecraft for Xbox 360 is a solid conversion and much more user-friendly than the PC version. The new split-screen mode is a great way to experience Minecraft with others. There are some issues, though, and the main problem is the small environments which removes a lot of the exploration that was so fun on the PC.

    Resident Evil: Revelations shows the potential that lies in Nintendos new handheld console. The story itself is masterfully told inepisodes, and the game has the best sound I've experienced on a 3DS sofar. The controls, however, seem a bit too stiff, but in a way thatalso enhanced the general claustrophobic atmosphere in the game.

    Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask does not upend the series' tried and true formula. It's still a delightful puzzle game embalmed in an engaging adventure, filled with eccentric characters in an exciting world. But it would be lovely to see something new added to the core.

    While it will certainly satisfy fans of the series, Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate certainly isn't for everyone. The cycle of gathering resources and completing quests can become a little stale and monotonous. Thankfully, a robust multiplayer mode makes the overall experience more rewarding and fun to play.
