    The tactical elements go along really well with the action-heavy component of the game and with the large number of weapons and traps, it will not get boring.

    A quite brutal dark fantasy RPG that forces you to rethink, lets heroes die and thus creates a very intensive experience.

    FIFA 10 offers a few small improvements like new tactical options, but compared to Pro Evolution Soccer 6 it looks very dated. All in all, it's not enough to improve the rating compared to FIFA 09 and the series really needs a graphical update.

    Huge atmospheric open world racing game which lacks really good multiplayer ideas. In combination with the main game it's superior to similar games like Need for Speed.

    Running around, shooting, the car races and graphics are all ok, partially great. But the story is thin, some design decisions are weird (weapons that can't be picked up) and it's all pretty much the same all the time.

    Welcome to Bullworth Academy, a melting pot of high school stereotypes. Outsiders are making plans to rule the world, teachers terrorize their pupils, sports aces and rock 'n rollers try to impress the girls while the posh students wrinkle their nose. While the GTA-style game itself is well done, the technical conversion to the PC is a bit sloppy. Should you ever be asked why video games are a cultural asset, show them Bully.

    It's complex and basically a game for people with an insane love for tactics. Once you survive despite all obstacles you'll feel like the smartest tactician of them all.

    The game is never boring and always impressed by cool ideas, and diversity.

    It’s the best game covering the Napoleonic Wars, but not necessarily the best game of the Total War series. But the multi-player mode finally makes an old dream come true. But it’s still a shame that Empire: Total War did not get any of the improvements.

    Whacking Hobbits, looting houses, causing havok - being evil can be fun, sure. But who'd expect that being evil can even cause tears of laughter?

    Despite its problems ESO is a game that's fun for more than 100 hours and if Zenimax listens to the players, it can even become a great game.

    A traditional RTS with clever ideas that struggles a bit due to the weak single player campaign. Still the best RTS we've seen in a long time.

    It's seems a bit like heresy compared to other games of the genre. But Bliizard found a way to make it easier to get into the game without taking away the fun. Simple to learn, hard to master.

    Assassin's Creed is a feast for the eyes. The views are breathtaking, and Altair moves smoothly through the Orient. For all its great setting and dialogues, the game is not as good as it could be and should be -- gameplay is repetetive and rather predictable. But it's good enough to have a few hours of fun.

    It's a very good Fomula One game, but it's about time to improve the presentations. And what stopped the developers to implement something like Formula BMW or GP2?

    I would have liked a bit more variety.

    Funny online shooter, easy to learn and very addictive. A welcome surprise with lots of humor.

    Blacklist takes a big step back. And in a positive sense.

    This game is not for everybody. It's painfully unfair, has a unique graphics style and tells its story in windows full of text. But it's an unforgettable experience once you give it a chance.

    A demanding and motivating shooter which is best with three teammates. One of the most underrated action games of the year.

    The huge amount of improvements are fitting well. It's no Alpha Centauri 2 yet - but it's getting closer.

    A real tactical shooter at last. Rainbow Six: Siege offers great and hard multiplayer battles, but it needs more content.

    Are you good or evil? Or both? And should you buy this game? It may not be as good as Mass Effect 2, but it’s still a lot of fun to follow Mike through his adventures, despite some out of date graphics and the dumb AI, because as a role playing game, it just works fine.
