    It improves on the original in every way and shows just how a sequel should be done and is as close to a perfect sequel you will get. You owe it to yourself to buy this

    Fez
    For those with any kind of an inclination to the days where games put more effort into enjoyment than just looking good, this is an absolute must play.

    Velocity is an exceptional and in many ways ground breaking game. To call it the best mini out there is doing it a disservice. In truth, Velocity is a must have game on whatever system you can get it on.

    There is no element of Dust: An Elysian Tail that has a negative, from the jaw dropping visuals, to the excellent writing, through to the seamless combat and action. This is a stand out title in more ways than one. In a year that has Trials Evolution, Spelunky, Minecraft and Fez, this is the standalone best game on XBLA. If you only buy one game this year buy Dust: An Elysian Tail, there simply isn't enough superlatives to describe just how good it is.

    It is DLC that adds more to an already amazing package and the fact RedLynx continue to add more themselves, as well as more to allow users to build the ever increasing library is simply refreshing to see. At just 400 Microsoft Points this is one of the best value DLC bundles you can get. If you own Trials Evolution, you must get this now. If you don't own Trials Evolution, buy that and get this now.

    Quite simply, one of the greatest stories of this gaming generation has just released its greatest chapter.

    Far Cry 3 is not only one of the games of this year, it is one of the games of this generation. There was nothing about it that ever came close to ruining the fun, it is a true sandbox experience and all the faults from the previous games have been ironed out. Simply put, you must buy this now!

    Persona 4 Golden isn’t just one of the best games on the Vita to date… Actually scratch that. It is THE best game on the Vita and it is one of the finest games you will ever play. It is a lesson in craftsmanship, there is no weakness at all, at no point is there a moment where your interest falls away. Persona 4 Golden is a system seller, you must own this, even if you need to still buy a Vita to do so.

    A game you can lose yourself in for hours, only looking away to wonder where the time has gone. It is one of this generations great games, as simple as that.

    There was no violence for violence sake, everything felt like it was done with perfect context. The writers and those that acted in the game all deserve a lot of credit, it was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had with a controller in my hands.

    It isn’t a game that will appeal to everyone, as it is an open world, violent game without a moral compass. But boy can you have fun without worrying about morals.

    A return to gaming's roots. The best launch title for PS4 bar none.

    A mastery of games design, Super Mario 3D World shows that Nintendo are still on top of their game. Blending the old and the new into platforming gold, this is everything we could’ve wanted and more. The reason to own a Wii U has arrived.

    You will be frustrated, you will swear more than you have at any point in your life before, but you will have one amazing sense of accomplishment when you complete goals and levels. OlliOlli is one amazing game, it is an instant classic. If you own a Vita, you need to pick this up right away.

    A change for the better - and much better than anyone could have imagined. It has the right feel, the right look, and the combat system has yet to be bettered in this genre.

    It is one of the finest 3D games ever produced; nay crafted. At last, this is the 'third place'... this truly is the third dimension. History has just been rewritten.

    Where Substance really comes alive is the various VR modes and alternative missions.

    The defining aspect of FFXI is the huge amount of time that is required to play the game. Couple that with the fact it is dangerously addictive and soon enough you will find yourself firmly ensconced in your chair not wanting to leave to do anything else.

    The handling is excellent whether you are driving or on foot, the dual shock controller and control system sit nicely in your hands and the whole thing feels natural.

    The sound of GTA Vice City is glorious.

    A stunning game with great graphics, sound and outstanding gameplay that adds up a top class fighting game.

    Composer Yoko Shimomura (his first Square title since Legend of Mana) creates a very impressive score that alternates between filling you with excitement as you start your next battle to pulling at the heartstrings when some of the game’s more poignant scenes are onscreen.

    Truly astounding. Not tarnished at all by all the hype, and truly worth the wait.

    ICO
    The visuals are stunning but not for full-blown 3D acceleration or the resolution, rather the epic and believable world that has been created for you to discover. It won’t take you long to complete ICO if you are semi-intelligent but you won’t feel cheated because it is very much a case of quality over quantity.

    Without question, Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked and Loaded surpasses "Mario Sunshine" as the best 'platform genre-specific' offering of the current generation.

    Double bastard-woo with hot custard on top (and those who allege otherwise are suffering from cranio-rectal inversions).

    Don't miss out on this at any cost. If you need a bit more convincing, just remember: you get to have a threesome.

    Yet again the Shadow Hearts series delivers, and really you’d be a fool not to try out this original and captivating series. As for now this is the finest RPG on the Playstation 2.

    Yet the beauty of Katamari Damacy comes not from fighting, exploration or trading, but from rolling a ball (known as a katamari) that captures anything within its path. A brilliantly simple idea, and one that's perfectly executed.

    Quibbles aside, Gamestyle would be hard-pressed to name a better RPG it has experienced on the current crop of consoles.
