    Mortal Kombat X is the best beat'em up game for current-gen consoles but it's not as good as the previous installment. You'll like Faction Wars, a new way of activating brutalities or some story-wise improvements and you'll miss some characters (the new ones not always rise up to the challenge) or the challenge tower. It's good but could be great.

    Rocksmith isn't really a game the same way Guitar Hero is. It's more of a complex educational software that uses the look of a video game for better motivation. You could easily use YouTube videos and Guitar Pro tabs instead - and thousands of self-taught guitarists do. Fortunately putting everything in one place and using nice game-like graphics create a product that motivates better than any "usual" software does.

    Everything that is important for the Wargame series has been improved or expanded in Red Dragon. The developer has introduced naval battles, but unfortunately this novelty looks quite poor - which is a shame, because it was supposed to be the biggest new feature. Still, the game itself is miles above mediocrity and keeps on providing lots of fun for wannabe generals.

    The Sims 3: Supernatural is a really well-made expansion that offers long hours of entertainment and opens new ways of experiencing the world. Each character is a new progress path and it would be a mistake not to try them all out. Moonlight Falls has some interesting places that - after dark - lure monsters and are a source of many exciting night encounters. Despite some minor technical flaws, the newest Sims 3 expansion is a great way of providing a new look on this crazy world.

    Dear console-owner - if you haven't experienced Crysis on a PC, don't hesitate to do it on your console. The loss on a visual side is minor and you still get an excellent gameplay experience with a lot of freedom and decision making. It's still one of the best shooters around.

    FTL: Faster Than Light proves, that indie games funded through Kickstarter can gather gamers and do it with style. Many different playthroughs, no save option and perma-death are the game's strongest points, but you need to remember, that FTL couldn't exist without them - the campaign can be beaten in 2-3 hours. This game bases its gameplay on successes and failures alike and does so well, that I will be glad to play FTL for dozens of hours more.

    God of War: Ascension is really good. It's a game that will keep you entertained for a dozen or so hours (or more, if you get into the decent multiplayer mode). You need to know though, that the developers have kept it safe: everything you see here has been done before, but there's less that is "epic" and there's less "grandeur" than before. Still, Ascension is very pretty and has some great camera work that shows Kratos from unusual angles. Don't waste what is probably the last chance to spend some time with your favorite warrior.

    A big surprise - I didn't think Ubisoft Reflection could do anything good with such a weakened franchise but the final effect turned out really well. Even though sometimes you feel there is too much of really similar challenges and the technical side could be improved a little, Tanner's return is definitely a good one.

    Playing Silent Hill HD Collection reassured me that once it had been a fantastic series that has aged well. I can recommend this collection to all of you, especially if you haven't played Silent Hill 2 or 3 before.

    PayDay 2 is one of the nicest surprises of the year. Overkill Software understands the atmosphere of gangster movies and wisely improves these pieces of gameplay, that might have been disappointing in the first game. The sequel is better in almost every way - you can play a thief and enjoy good character development and shooting systems. I really hope, that PayDay 3 will be even better.

    Space Marine is a solid production - worthy of highest Patriarchs' praise. It has some flaws - minor technical issues (mediocre graphics, errors, lags) that fortunatelly fade in the light of Emperor's grace, that the game preaches. And may it do so for a long time.

    Resistance 3 has its better and worse sides. Single player campaign can absorb but not thanks to the story - the plot is fairly standard and doesn't stand out. The ending is disappointing - don't count on a strong accent to finish the trilogy. The gameplay itself is attractive and keeps you entertained for several hours and by a second playthrough you can choose a highest dificulty level and look for hidden diaries. Multiplayer, on the other hand, is uneven and won't satisfy everyone's tastes.

    It's hard to recommend Black Ops II to fans of story-based single player campaigns. Treyarch had problems connecting a story with strong characters, with a dynamic, linear shooter. The result is chaotic, but a mediocre single player mode cannot weigh heavily on a final opinion about this game. The most important thing in Black Ops II is an incredible multiplayer - a classic, fast-paced game with many innovations. The Pick 10 system opens up a metric ton of possibilities, and really good maps and play styles create a package never before seen in a Call of Duty game. If that's the thing you want in a modern shooter, you couldn't have picked better.

    Catapulting birds still gives a lot of joy, because the guys at Rovio have created good levels and tweaked the flow of gameplay. But even with such a large amount of additions, the new Star Wars-themed game can quickly become boring for someone who has completed Angry Birds Space. It's simply another piece of the same game - at least from the basic conceptal standpoint, because the new levels are satisfying. I hope that the developers have something new to show, when most gamers - upon looking at a new game from the series - will say "What, Angry Birds again?".

    The Dark Eye: Chains of Setinav is Just one example of a reborn genre of classic adventure games. It's a game that deals with the subject in a very typical way, but shows a technological direction for other developers to follow. It's one of a few games that draw so much from a real fable – the atmosphere amazed me. It's a very good game that lacks some final polish.

    Citadel delivers. The last story-driven DLC for Mass Effect 3 allows the players to say goodbye to Shepard and his friends in a grand style. The content is light, fun and humorous, and the new main mission is great. What is more, the quests are more diverse than the ones in Omega or Leviathan. I'm a fan and I see Citadel in a very good way, but you have to remember, that it's aimed at a specific audience. People that didn't like Shepard's previous adventures have nothing to see here.

    Shadow Warrior is a surprisingly good game, proving that classic shooters are still needed. I haven't had so much fan while playing an FPS in a very long time. And speaking of long time - it's a really lengthy game (15-17 hours is a lot by today's standards). If you're a fan of this kind of games and you like gore and crude humor, you simply need to buy and play the new Shadow Warrior.

    Sniper Elite III has some flaws - the AI works in mysterious ways and the storyline is silly. These minor issues don't cloud the complete image - the game is a well thought-out package with a good single-player campaign (full of semi-open missions), satisfying co-op and a solid, original multiplayer mode. You should definitely give Sniper Elite III a Chance.

    Despite a great dose of fondness towards Grimrock it's hard for me to treat it like something more than just a curiosity. Dungeon crawlers won't be making a great return. Guys from Almost Human have found a niche and met the expectations of older cRPG fans. I'm one of those fans and I had great fun for a while, but near the end my enthusiasm begun to subside.

    Prison Architect has a very weak single player campaign and is plagued with minor issues. But even if we don't forget about these things this game is one of the best tycoons in recent years. It has an excellent sandbox mode, good AI, is very complex, offers lots of possibilities and can make you forget about time passing by.

    Magicka is a game that works especially well in cooperation. Single player experience is a good one but this game shows its true potential only when you play with friends, allowing for some great fun. A patched-up Magicka is most certainly worth getting to know. Even more, because it is a solid candidate for 2011's best game in its category.

    Some gamers will consider The Witness to be a masterpiece and another proof that videogames are art. In this case the Witness requires you to possess at least two out of these three character traits: superb intelligence, angelic patience and passion for analyzing various cultural works. Everyone else will probably think that The Witness is pretty, but too hard.

    End Game DLC will appeal to fans of battles that feature all kinds of units, where every soldier has a role to play. Capture the Flag makes a return, and even it is sometimes frustrating, it demands the team's cooperation, rewards crazy runs and offers tons of excitement. New maps go well with old game modes, and new vehicles provide variety. All in all, End Game is a worthy closure to BF3's series of add-ons.

    Saints Row IV is a really good, grotesque and engrossing sandbox game. Still, you can't overlook some repetitiveness in terms of script and humor, and the visual side is pretty much identical to SR3. Fortunately Volition's new game offers tons of fun, lots of interesting ideas and solutions - a long campaign and a variety of bonus activities will keep you entertained. All in all, the series should benefit from a change of atmosphere and scenery, because it's beginning to chase its own tail.

    Dragon Age II: Legacy is a really good DLC. Desipte a strong focus on fighting it should interest all the players, who found the story and main character of the original game interesting. There are many little details like differences in conversations depending on the moment of your adventure's beginning.

    A strange game. On one hand we have mediocre graphics, choppy animations, a general lack of polish, and really bad first few missions. On the other hand, the campaign keeps getting better and in the end looks like a really good stealth game, there's lots of additional missions (in co-op as well) and a great multiplayer mode, that has the power to convince gamers usually avoiding online play. The new Splinter Cell, just like the new young Sam Fisher, doesn't look trustworthy, but it's worth giving a shot. The game isn't as good as Chaos Theory, but underneath all these minor issues hides a really good game.

    Black Mirror III, despite grim predictions of being a repetitive game and a failure, turned out to be a really good product. The next installment of the series does a good job of continuing the tale of Gordon family's curse, explains most of the ambiguities and probably ends the whole story.

    Firewatch may be too short and with some minor technical issues but an excellent visual style, interesting characters, intriguing storyline and a very original place of action more than make up for that. Firewatch is something unique enough that is worth recommending not only to the fans of "walking simulator" games.

    Dungeon Siege III is a game that can't be graded without upsetting some gamers. They have been divided into two camps: the game's followers and opponents, and some examples of really fanatical behavior are peculiar indeed. But when I try to describe Obsidian Entertainment's new game in a calm and cool way, I have to say "at least satisfactory". A very gripping gameplay, arcade style combat, lots of RPG elements and interesting story and characters – these are the things that convinced me.

    The Scorchers DLC is a cool proposition for fans of Rage. This unexpected release from Bethesda would have been even more surprising and impressive, if it had more content. Fortunately, this DLC is cheap and offers new missions, places, a great new weapons and some minor tweaks. Some other publishers would want to sell such a product in parts and for more money. You should also remember that playing Rage on a PC now is a completely new experience. No more freezing, crashes or textures popping-up in front of you - you should give it another try, and this DLC is a great excuse to do so.
