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

    The implementation of the control system is masterful, with the emphasis being on ease of use and fluid issuing of commands.

    EBA performs admirably, making improvements where needed and retaining the same charm, humour and enthusiasm as its imported cousin. It's a more accessible entry into the franchise, but there's nothing to stop anyone from picking up both.

    It’s disappointing that online co-op hasn’t been included (only local), it is however quite likely it wouldn’t work due to the twitch gameplay required. It still doesn’t stop Geometry Wars 2 being an absolute steal at 800 points.

    An amazing example of online and offline racing built around an engaging, satisfying handling model with the looks to match. Very, very nearly worth buying an Xbox One for alone.

    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.

    When all’s said and done, and in spite of our qualms and nitpicks, Mass Effect 2 truly is an excellent game.

    An amazing story based on actual events. KHOLAT is a standout game in a genre that often fails to deliver.

    Dead Space 2 is exactly what you want from a sequel, it ups the action and everything is bigger and bolder. The scares are still there and the story progresses excellently.

    Easily the most original PSP release to date, it's a great way to start your love affair with Sony's handheld system.

    If you are looking for a game with plenty of hours game-play, great story progressing content and gorgeous to the eye then look no further than this. The measly price you pay is worth every second you play of the game, even the times where the game is driving you insane from trying to figure out where and what to do next.

    Proteus isn’t a game in the usual sense of the word, it won’t appeal to every demographic, but it is an experience we would urge as many people as possible to take. There is something special about this that will leave a lasting effect.

    Still head and shoulders above everything else in the genre.

    Modern Warfare 3 is the best package of it's kind on consoles and instead of going stale it continues to impress.

    The pretender has had its time in the sun, its 15 minutes of fame, but the King is back, long live the King! Pro Evolution Soccer is once again the Daddy of virtual football!

    Zen Pinball 2 is the game for the more casual fan, but pinball enthusiasts will also have a great time, despite the physics not quite being 100% realistic. The buttery smooth 60fps in 1080p also does wonders for the experience and this is the best version of a Zen made pinball game yet.

    Joe Danger Special Edition is a complete triumph, the wait has been more than worth it and it is one of the best games to come out on XBLA in 2011. The only reason not to own this game, is if you hate fun.

    A few less than spectacular extra features complete the package. Worth mention only for reference these include annoying celebrity matches, and a frustrating ESPN 25th anniversary mode, where the top 25 plays in football are reenacted by the player.

    Call Of Duty: Ghosts won’t be for everyone, but you know exactly what you are going to get. The single players offers a thrill a minute rollercoaster ride, whilst the multiplayer is as competitive as ever. Despite the next gen version waiting in the wings, the current gen version of Ghosts looks and plays as good as ever.

    This ugly duckling, with elements of poor execution somehow manages to provide a captivating and distinctive experience. It shouldn't, but somehow it all comes together to deliver a gem of a game. Remarkable.

    The players no longer look like white faced zombies and the online mode is one of the best we've experienced so far.

    Orcs Must Die is a fine game and one that offers up plenty of fun. The amount of ways there are to kill Orcs means that the game rarely gets dull and if anything it awakens a sadistic nature from within. Genocide has never been so much fun.

    Evolve is a game that walks a fine tightrope of success and failure with its setup. Luckily it manages to stay balanced and become a worthwhile purchase.

    And when some players will struggle to overcome the Normal default difficulty at times, the opportunity to replenish health would have been welcome.

    It may be difficult to get to grips with, but once you do so it becomes one of the best fighting experiences around. It’s going to be hard for a sequel to top this.

    If you are after an arcade racer that doesn't take itself too seriously, then this is for you. It won't suit everyone, but as a package it offers plenty for those who want to dive in. The is plenty of content across all the available modes and the introduction of RaceNet should keep the dedicated entertained for a long time.

    We're hoping that by reading Gamestyle you're at least a little more interested in how good the actual game is rather than purely the aesthetics. Rest assured, then, that Bangai-O is brilliant.

    Matches the high intrigue of previous releases, and even throws a few new tricks into the rucksack.

    While the result stumbles just short of enshrinement as a legend, the defining bar has been raised, again.

    It may not be to everyone’s tastes, but if you’re craving a deep story and interesting characters you won’t find much better.
