    Puzzle games have always been a highlight on handhelds, and Surge Deluxe carries on this tradition. It’s amazing that despite largely lacking the AAA blockbuster titles, the Vita has become something of an indie paradise. Surge Deluxe is the latest, and one of the best.

    Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is a top effort by Namco.

    In conclusion, this game has not let the series down. Opinion will differ with the actual story, but with the amount of different options available in the game, that is bound to happen. It just can't be stressed enough that this game will only give half the pleasure if it is played without prior Mass Effect experience.

    And although Meat Boy may not be as rare as he once was but there’s no doubting that his long-awaited arrival on a handheld is very well-done.

    The themes of Danganronpa aren’t going to be for everyone, but for those who want an exceptional story that gets its hooks in, then you cannot go wrong here.

    It can be easy to dismiss a game like De Blob 2, an average Wii exclusive that didn't really make waves in sales and branded as Syfy Kids. However, in doing so, you would be missing out on a game that is a joy to play.

    While it’s not the best fighter ever, Tekken 5 is truly something special. It has the style, sound and longevity you want from a fighting game.

    A wonderful accompaniment to the early films and a return to form for the franchise overall.

    What's important, though, is that Fable is an amazingly well-crafted and polished world that has traded the typical sandbox route of western RPGs for attention to detail and true character development.

    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.

    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.

    If you have never played Beyond Good & Evil, then you owe it to yourself to see why those that had, would go on and on about it. If you have played the game before and loved it, then you will be wanting that teased and rumoured sequel that appeared to be dead in the water. Buy this, show Ubisoft that we are ready for a new game. Regardless of anything, buy it because you know you want to play it again in glorious HD.

    What you have here is a game that has that special something, simple to play, but extremely difficult to master. It gets the balance so right, that any frustrations of difficulty are completely eradicated as you want to tackle levels again and again just to get each one perfect. A wonderful addition to the Vita’s impressive Indie library.

    Ingenious and designed with the sort of wild creative flair that most developers can only dream of possessing, Gamestyle loves Katamari.

    Rainbow Six: Vegas is almost perfect and easily the best iteration in the series. The compelling co-op play, the online multiplayer and everything associated with the single player campaign is completely worth the asking price.

    All in all the game is a marked improvement over the first, with the addition of new weapons, a great sound track, and the same brilliant combat.

    Dragon’s Crown is an amazing experience and whilst it may be easy to turn your nose up at it, due to the visual style of the characters, to do so you would be denying yourself the chance of playing one the the best side-scrolling beat-em-ups of all time. A game with simplicity, that is also as deep as you want it to be. Open to newcomers and experienced players alike, you need this in your life.

    Never Alone is a game that has gone from hardly being on the radar, to something that could quite possibly be a Game of the Year (2014) contender. Those who take a chance on this game will come away knowing they have been part of a unique experience that shows that games can be used as a serious vehicle for story telling.

    Toy Soldiers: Cold War is without doubt one of the best games you can purchase on XBL and is a truly great sequel to what was a fantastic game

    Casual fans may not need to pick this up over NHL 11, but hockey fans will want to get this, just for the engine improvements alone.

    If you are looking for a racer with an edge then Sky Drift is a definite must have purchase for any fan of the genre.

    The balance achieved between depth and accessibility is highlighted perfectly by online play, and it's online where you'll 'ultimately' reap the rewards this game has to offer.

    An RPG in which you can easily lose hours, should it grab you.

    All of this adds up to a very feature rich game that deserves praise, it has taken the best bits from board games such as Scrabble, Risk and Boggle and mixed them up into a unique and satisfying experience. At 800 Points it would be more than worth it, however at just 400 Microsoft Points it is an absolute no brainer, go ahead and buy it right now.

    Chime is a charity game, but far from a charity case. At 400 points you would be forgiven for buying it as your good deed for the year, but what you will actually get it one of the best and most well balanced puzzle games in years.

    The levels are so much more diverse, so much more rich, solid, 3 dimensional even, than in the first - the levels just move so much more.

    It manages to enlarge its scope from being something which entertains on a functional level to becoming something that emits enchantment and appreciation on a purely 'emotional' level.

    A neat little building game, with a side of click-to-zap with laser.
