    Rapture is a beautifully stylised city that provides plenty of mystery and intrigue. Definitely a game of the year contender.

    Simply by moving the controls from the face-buttons to the analogue sticks – an idea so simple it’s amazing no-one though of it before – EA have created the best skateboarding title in years and in doing so have redefined the rules of the entire genre. A joy to play and a game which the inevitable sequel will have to go some way to top.

    Casual players will notice very little difference and probably resent the soundtrack, favouring the more varied original. Experts will savour the focus of the new tracks and find the tweaked mechanics to be an absolute godsend, placing this high above the original.

    A major factor in the addictive and fun nature of Guitar Hero II is the excellent learning curve.

    An update is what they've got; graphical upgrades, new characters, new moves, but with the same classic gameplay. Whether this is your first Pokémon game or your fifth, this formula still works like magic.

    God of War: Chains of Olympus is a fantastic game and a worthy addition to any PSP owner’s collection.

    RE4 is still a fantastic game and one of the best games of the last generation, but a few extra play modes wouldn't have gone amiss. Still, if you missed out on the horror the first time then this is the perfect way to catch up.

    LittleBigPlanet is a must have purchase for a system that needs more AAA titles in its library. As a PlayStation 3 exclusive, it's almost worth buying a system to experience.

    This is definitely up there as one of the best versions of Street Fighter 2 available and will most certainly keep you occupied until the true sequel is unleashed next year.

    Burnout Paradise is an excellent game, but there are one or two blemishes that do tarnish it somewhat. Still, there's something for every Burnout fan here and it will no doubt spark continued debate over whether it's the best in the series.

    It's a big-budget, beautifully crafted slice of next-gen promise kept; on many levels it's one of the best first person shooters released in a year of strong rivals, and perhaps even the best PlayStation 3 game released so far.

    An excellent online mode (as always) is the icing on an almost perfect cake. Bizarre have even had the decency to include a brand new version of Geometry Wars, subtitled Waves, to keep people amused. With PGR4 the series may have reached its peak and it's going to be interesting to see how Bizarre Creations try and top it.

    Although the combat can get repetitive, and Darksiders has adopted a tried and tested format, the story, style, and atmosphere make playing through Armageddon a unique and involving experience.

    There's plenty of depth and challenge that even the best strategist may find hard to conquer. Controlling a civilization has never been so fun.

    Neves’ strength is its central concept, which is compelling, elegant and creative. It’s a must for any puzzle fan.

    It just remains for us to say, if you’re looking for a quality title to download, go with SWOS. It’s the sensible choice.

    A fantastic horror experience from beginning to end, leaving you no time to catch your breath.

    Rock Band is really three games in one, and what's amazing is that not one of them feels anything less than excellent, despite treading on now familiar ground. Combined, they are a recipe for the most fun you can have in your living room.

    Faults do exist, but the core gameplay more than makes up for it and finally confirms that Nintendo aren’t the only development studio who can make a stellar Wii game.

    A must buy.

    The World Ends With You is one of the best games of the year without a doubt. A fantastic plot with an amazing cast of character bring this virtual Shibuya to life in a game you’ll definitely want to see through to the end.

    All these minor faults are soon forgotten once Final Fantasy Tactics A2 starts to slowly take over your life.

    Unquestionably if you did not get around to buying Persona 3 earlier this year then this is another opportunity and one not to be wasted.

    With only five levels one could argue that there isn’t much to Ikaruga. Yet what it lacks in size it more than up for in terms of playability and challenge.

    Fallout 3 is an incredibly well-accomplished game that lets players explore a rich, diverse and interesting landscape however they see fit.

    It's a shame that Nuts & Bolts is so overlooked and undervalued, as it it genuinely brilliant, and shows that Rare does have what it takes to make a classic, even if they misjudge their audiences a little bit.

    Arguably it represents the greatest sporting release of this current generation with only a few minor tweaks required next year.

    Simply put, GHWT is the best rhythm action title on the market right now.

    It gets better as it goes, and perhaps even better with age, and still puts most other RPGs to shame.
