    Just as the people in the colourful world of the Human Revolution want to be better people, the game itself was eager to propel high above the competition from all other games and succeeded quite masterfully. It's true that Human Revolution sticks too much to story templates of the original Deus Ex, but this minor objection becomes irrelevant when the third Deus Ex is in fact your first.

    The visuals are breathtaking, the story is fascinating and the gameplay is never-ending. Uncharted 3 is like a fast-paced locomotive that cannot be stopped. The expectations were high, but Naughty Dog met them and even added an action-oriented frantic multiplayer. This third title clearly honours its parents, but as a child it does tricks with its pulsing vigour.

    Dark Souls is a neat, die-hard and time-consuming game – aside from its predecessor the only one of its kind. This game is not for everyone – that's not a flaw, but a virtue.

    A great turn-based strategy game surpassing not only its blood-related predecessors but step-brothers and step-sisters of the Advance Wars series as well. Fire Emblem: Awakening is the new benchmark of the genre that is practically uncriticizable. At the moment on Nintendo 3DS there is not a better alternative.

    Is it possible for a title of a dying platform to become a game of the year? The Last of Us is a hot candidate not because it has amazing graphics, but because it has a solid storyline for the generic post-apocalyptic genre. The game proves in a remarkable way that even a great thing may be even greater, and that a whole thing may be even more than just a sum of the individual components.

    When someone brings an excellent title, and then announces they are planning a sequel you automatically expect, and sometimes you are right, that the next installment won't beat the original. However, Rayman Legends traverses this belief with its unshaken confidence, and it sets forward the whole Rayman series to the new, LEGENDARY, level.

    At first sight just another well-executed GTA game, which is by itself a great excuse for our ultimate rating.

When you love it nothing else matters.

    In some ways, Dark Souls II is an altered formula of the original game. Not all of its retouches will be to your liking at first, but you will find out eventually there is a reason they are there, and it's all clear consecutively. Dark Souls II is a die-hard fun title holding up for tens of hours. It will let your hands vibrated by adrenaline. It will torment you, but still being righteous. It's just an extremely difficult game.

    The best World War I combat flight simulator ever. To hold your airplane in the skies is an easy task. But it will take some time and lot of training to become a real ace. Rise of Flight is heavily inspired by IL-2 Sturmovik's style and it is able to deliver and entertain almost every virtual pilot.

    One hell of a bloody nostalgia path, that surprisingly greatly seals this whole series. At the same time it seals one crucial brand of the modern video game generation, and from a perspective of those previous parts it is a really cocksure sealing, without a doubt. The game's got a great tempo with great ideas and a great vibe. GoW 3 will reward all of you living in the series for a couple of years, knowing almost everything from Sera's history, as well as it will reward those of you knowing practically nothing about the previous games. Delta, it was a great honour.

    A great game meets expectations and excels in a multiplayer. However, it isn't a perfect title of its genre as the game's campaign misses several touch ups.

    This MMORPG is of excellent quality. It has its flaws indeed, however, none of its key features is poor or faulty. On the contrary: the game is based on things that are working perfectly.

    If you forgot everything about the big comeback of the first game, you'll get one neat, suprisingly coherent "supercop behind the wheel" piece with plenty of Burnoutish (almost) fun to it. Not taking itself so seriously would do San Francisco good. However, when you are seated behind the wheel, you can't deny the great qualities of the game.

    You can find a flaw or two in here, but that is just a smirch on the game's face that is suprisingly addicting, and whose free-to-play model is effectively helping to get to more audience – from hardcore maniacs up to their mummies.

    Fast-paced gaming popcorn that will find its place in this chuck-full autumn season. Combinations of the better parts from both previous games of this series may resonate like a motto: "Don't fix it unless it's broken". For those fans of "not so complicated shooters" with high production values, this one is superb. For long-run fans of the series, this one is like an assurance that Insomniac holds the series firmly in their hands.

    Pessimists constantly gripe about the lack of changes in NHL 12, but they are all wrong. There are some good changes here, and these changes altogether have a great impact on its gameplay; that is to say, bigger changes wouldn't bring up the desired effect of its kind of game-continuity. We may say we are once again closer to the actual hockey experience without losing its first-rate gameplay.

    An action RPG from the zombie-filled island that pleases by its great gameplay and surprises in many ways – like in a fine cooperation mode. The game suffers with some faults, but you can find those faults in de facto every sandbox game out there knowing that those faults have almost none eventual impact for your experience.

    Maybe a bit rushed but an extremely important score for this newcomer. If we have a look at licensed motorsports we see that Codemasters are really ahead of its competitors, without a doubt; the only thing remaining is to obtain WRC licence for DiRT series and then move on some trucks, maybe? With Codemasters' sturdy engine and team of people, which are not afraid to get dirty from underneath of the engine hood, it would be a loss to not expand. So do it – we want more.

    A fine line of a multiplayer shooter appears under a cloud of faults. This game is not afraid of getting out of an arcade stream, and it tortures a player with its realism and team-based gaming approach; it also brings several approaches of online warfare. Yet, the starts are painful, but Stalingrad's atmosphere won't let you leave.

    Unreal Engine, top-notch technology, goes hand in hand with game's addicting gameplay and its great vibe – something I wouldn't expect from a mobile/tablet game like Gyro13.

    id Software maybe wished to create their own chef d'œuvre, but they missed it. However, apart from the wasted potential, they created a game they don't need to be ashamed of; nor do the gamers that are willing to play it.

    This is an enjoyable entertainment for long winter nights that faces up to stereotype despite its oscillation in a gaming difficulty. All in all, it's a good title for the time of your lunch-break; however, for deep thoughts, complex mechanics and original ideas look elsewhere.
