    After Super Mario 3D Land, Nintendo has another hardware seller in Mario Kart 7. While Super Mario 3D Land redefined 3D jump'n'runs, Mario Kart 7 sets also new standards for fun and arcade racers. Mario Kart 7 offers the deepest multiplayer experience in the franchise, but that's not all. It's the cool mix of good old features and fresh gameplay elements, which makes the game so cool.

    This game is motivating like The Sims, but packed with action – and the Special Edition with laboratory levels is even worth buying for gamers who have the original game: 30 levels and a level editor. Well done, Hello Games!

    The backgrund ist literally junk, the game Deponia however the exact opposite. A brilliantly absurd story, a fitting comic style and strong speakers. Okay, it's a bit old school in temrs of bunkering stuff in your inventory – but from an in-world perspective, it makes sense: if it's not dross, keep it (like Roger Wilco did in Space Quest 3). After Harvey's New Eyes, Daedalic offers up yet another wonderfully bizarre adventure.

    This is a must-have download title – high quality, innovative indie gameplay style, immersive story, six hours of fun and stealth-action pickled with puzzle elements.

    EA has done it right: with innovative controls, a PS3-like presentation and the huge content we know from the series FIFA Football is a must-have title for the new Sony handheld.

    I'm impressed: this balance between accessibilty for beginners and challenge for pros is something other fighting games should strive to copy. Street Fighter X Tekken is in a league of its own, in part thanks to the Gem system. The poor character individualization options and soundtrack are the only notable flaws. A fighting game that anyone – and that's what's special: really anyone – can take a swing at.

    This is an amazing shooter with a great and enthralling story and good graphics. Though the voice controls are problematic at times, they are fun and a refreshing alternative to the average TPS. The only big issue is the mediocre multiplayer. The great mixture of the post-apocalyptic Tokio and the futuristic city above combined with the synthetic enemies guarantee an absorbing atmosphere. Great game!

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is far more than just a more of the same. Thanks to many new features and a great Kinect implementation, this game is a fantastic sports game for newbies and pros as well.

    Even though The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings takes some time to reveal its greatness, the game is enthralling from the very first second. It will take you some time to master the controls, because the combat system is a pretty unique mix of tactical movement and mere brutality. The modern game engine makes the game optically beautiful and the synchronization of the characters is amazing. Easily one of the best Action-RPGs for Xbox360.

    Trials Evolution is by far the best way to kick off the Arcade Next event. It is a great game with the soundtrack being the online downside.

    Brings back two of the very best horror games that have ever been published. The oppressive atmosphere of the games is as terrifying as ever and sadly so are the controls. James and Heather controls are just too clumsy. The graphics are much sharper and clearer now, though Silent Hill 3 looks much better than its predecessor. The fact that there are new voice recordings is awesome, because the synchronizations of the originals were pretty impersonal and static. All in all the collection is worth every cent, though it is strange that Silent Hill and Silent Hill 4: The Room are missing.

    TERA may not offer enough to dethrone World of Warcraft, but it is a wonderful game with a thrilling story and loads of action. Above all else the combat mechanics are a great innovation.

    If you like the retro-look and if you have fun with jump'n'runs, you should definitely get this.

    Sleeping Dogs is a great game with an interesting and thrilling story, with an action-packed Martial Arts gameplay and an atmospheric Hong Kong. The dialogue is well spoken and include nicely made story twists. The only thing is that the open world of Sleeping Dogs is not as perfect as in GTA IV. However, if you like action, well-narrated stories with an atmospheric city, then play Sleeping Dogs.

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 is not as innovative as Super Mario Sunshine or Super Mario Galaxy, but all in all it's a 2D Jump'n'Run you'll have plenty of fun with.

    Borderlands 2 is a role playing game combined with a shooter, including a Bazillionen weapons and enemies, with an extremely brilliant cel-shaded look. This and tons of loot are guaranteed to captivate the player to the screen.

    Hitman: Absolution brings the stealth-fun back into the shooter-infested games universe. Of course you can shoot your way through the levels, but that's nothing compared to sneaking, knocking out guards, dressing yourself as the enemy and slowly walking through the level. The gameplay allows you to let your creativity flow and end the contract as you want it to end. That is the reason why the Hitman franchise is so successful.

    Studio Ghibli and LEVEL 5 combined their knowledge and the result is awesome. Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch captivates everybody with a great anime atmosphere, a deep story and approved gameplay mechanisms. By now Ni No Kuni is a candidate for a game of the year award.

    Even though NHL 14 isn't a huge step forward for the franchise it builds upon the steps that its predecessor has taken and delivers a satisfying ice hockey-experience, that is definitely enhanced by the new collision physics, which make NHL 14 a rather more visceral game.
