    Light meets shadow, but the good points outweigh the flaws by far. It's not the ultimate real driving simulator it claims to be, but it's probably the best racing game out on the market.

    Simply put, it is World of Warcraft 2.0. Everything seems to fit in: overhauled graphics, new landscapes, additional quests. Thanks, Blizzard.

    Featuring a huge open world environment and loads of choices fro individualists, Two Worlds II can easily appeal to any adventurer. Some minor graphical issues are apparent, but do never decrease the motivation to play significantly.

    Dead Space 2 can keep up with one of the most essential aspects that is often missed in games: it's bloody thrilling. It's not usual that a game drags so hard on your nerves – but you will appreciate it.

    Fans of Dragon Age: Origins will love Dragon Age 2, and it's one of the best role-playing games for PS3. That said, part 2 cannot quite deliver like the original Dragon Age, since time has passed and there is internal competition like Mass Effect 2.

    You will either love or hate the game - I do both. Every twist of the story is followed by boring side quests. But the little story flame keeps burning and every flare of it keeps me in the game. I want to know what this is all about, even if it is only because I want something to happen.

    Pokémon: Black Edition is one of the best Pokémon games ever. The mix of good old gameplay and new fresh features is really cool and in my point of view this game is the best looking game on the NDS I have ever seen.

    Overall I can only recommend Kirby's Epic Yarn. The gameplay is challenging, funny and gripping, the graphical and sound effects are great and the co-op mode is very entertaining. It's one of the best Nintendo Wii games I've ever played.

    Even though it doesn't shine that bright like in 1998, it might be the best 3DS title and is still a must have.

    The Witcher 2 offers awesome sword fights, cool graphics, charming characters, a compelling story, lots of bare skin and a decent shot of vulgar conversations. Damn good.

    A worthwhile add-on to its predecessor. Most weaknesses like clunky animations and a troublesome interface have been eliminated, and you'll play about 14 hours - so much more than these very popular mini-DLCs nowadays.

    It's different: every new mechanic like the Player Impact Engine or the Tactical Defending raises the bar for those new to the franchise, but at the same time, drives realism to the max. For every soccer fan, this is a must have.

    It is so much fun to play NHL 12. Overwhelming presentation, loads of content, many improvements to further realism, I could go on and on. Just get in on the action.

    Despite some shortcomings on a content and story level, RAGE still is one of the top shooter releases of 2011. id Software presents an unmatched graphics experience with wonderful handmade settings.

    One of those timeless classics that just can't go wrong. The new offensive and defensive features are a great addition to a gameplay already close to perfection.

    Dance Central did many things right, Harmonix really just had to improve details. They did: add good coop, dance battle, a kind of campagin mode, you get Dance Central 2. A game that takes the good predecessor to the next level. Okay, the song selection will be too modern for some tastes – but once that becomes the biggest criticism, that's a damn good sign.

    All in all, I'm quite impressed. The good old Battlefield multi-player experience was supplemented with a pretty good single player campaign. The graphics and sound effects are truly stunning, as is the deep atmosphere. This is what players want from a shooter.

    Let's hope the real NBA season will star with as much enthusiasm as 2K Games had for creating this game. Legends, great graphics, swell sound, astounding atmosphere – it has everything a basketball fan could want.

    10 years ago Halo: Combat Evolved amazed everyone with stunning gameplay, an absorbing story and an epic soundtrack. Since then it has become a bit old graphically, so 343 Studios decided to do a remake with enhanced HD and even 3D graphics and remade the soundtrack to 5.1 surround sound. 6 classic multiplayer maps were reimagined as well, and a new Firefight mission was added. The online multiplayer is even compatible with Halo: Reach. Basically, they made a near-perfect game even better.
