    With a swan song to the aging console generation Rockstar once again shows us what Open World really means. The Developer takes a sandbox, blows it up to the size of a football field, fills it with the most beautiful sand and all the toys we really want to play with.

    Mass Effect 3 is a milestone in the history of video games. It is an absolutely fantastic end to an amazing SciFi saga and tells an absolutely enthralling story. The characters are authentic and the synchronization is great. The gameplay stayed mostly the same, though there are a few improvements in Shepard's sprinting and the cover system. The complexity of the Mass Effect universe and the variety of scenes in the game are simply stunning. This is a must-buy for everyone who loves video games.

    Even if there is no multiplayer mode in the game, it is a great one! The game offers not many, but excellent features.

    Flawless in its ambition and almost perfect in its execution. A brave and remarkable game quite unlike any other.

    I just ran out of words to describe this open-world gameplay, being completely alive and realistic without ever getting boring. There's so much you can do, embedded in nearly perfect graphics and an overwhelming sound, plus you'll get a story with really great characters. Wow.

    The extremely cool story and an embracing atmosphere will absorb you completely, and even though there are some small weaknesses, Red Dead Redemption knows how to tell a story. And after the single-player mode, the multiplayer still awaits you.

    Though the campaign is short and not too demanding, Battlefield 3 is without a doubt the best shooter of the year 2011. The multiplayer mode with its huge maps, brilliant 64 player battles, and the return of the jets is the best thing going.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is by far the best RPG experience of the year and even better on PC. The huge and wonderful province of Skyrim serves as a great setting for an even greater story evolving around a mystical hero.

    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is one of the best PS3 games around, no action-adventure could stand up to it by comparison – until now! Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception combines the good elements of its predecessor with some new, fresh features like the enhanced multiplayer in a stunning setting. The atmosphere and the story really capture the player's interest and will have them lost track of time. A great game – thanks, Naughty Dog.

    Of course, Skyrim isn't perfect, but if you can overlook its few shortcomings, Skyrim is enormously rewarding. Great storytelling meets a fine plot, and your hero is key to all of that. Compelling narration, strong graphics, astonishing sound – you'll have to see it to believe it.

    Mass Effect 3 combines the good old gameplay elements from the previous installments with some new fresh features like the multiplayer mode. The game is purely stunning and offers captivating gameplay, freedom, an oppressive atmosphere and enough content for 40+ hours. It's a masterpiece of galactic proportions.

    I am stunned. The long time waiting between "StarCraft" and StarCraft II has not been wasted. Flawless gameplay, great graphics and a bombastic atmosphere result in one of the best real-time strategy games in the world.

    Diablo III is a perfectly done hack 'n' slay game that captures the spirit of its predecessors. Great cinematics, a well-done talent system and large maps are just a few of Diablo III's strengths.

    This game makes it hard not to use praises and superlatives all the time. To make it short: Killzone 2 is the new king of the genre!

    Fallout 3 is an outstanding game. The main story claims a small part of the whole post-apocalyptic world, which can be explored totally free.

    The world of dreams has been expanded, no, it has been reinvented. Feedback from the community has been implemented, no more hassle with the handling, the mightiest level editor you've ever seen, useful enhancements like the grapplehook and much more make this a worthy successor to LittleBigPlanet. And it's a reason to buy a PS3, too.

    Skyward Sword may not be the big first step into a new era from what Ocarina of Time was, but it's a strong close to the first 25 years, making the most of the dated Wii. The controls aren't just good, they actually do their part in making the game appealing. The entertaining story offers some surpises – Zelda not being a princess even risks offending purists! – and by virtue of that really feels fresh. Yes, Skyward Sword is a good reason to dust off the old Wii one more time.

    Batman: Arkham City saves the DC and Marvel universes from a dire gaming year 2011. I can only utter my fulsome praise to Bruce Wayne, Warner Brothers and Rocksteady for a furious game. Chapeau!

    A fantastic world, good gamepaly particularly in multiplayer and fitting sounds – Trine 2 has it all. The Collector's Edition with artbook and download code for the original is a half-price game to boot. If you hate skill games or thinking, skip it. Otherwise, there's no excuse to pass this one – one of the hidden gems 2011.

    Guild Wars 2 sets a new standard for all upcoming MMORPGs. It may be too early to state that this game will dethrone World of Warcraft but it does a great job in trying. Nice graphics, an abundance of content and new takes on many MMO aspects ensure a great gameplay experience.
