    Brotherhood is a must have for all Assassin's Creed fans. It doesn't blow your mind the way Assassin's Creed II did, but it certainly doesn't leave an impression of wasted money. If forthcoming sequels keep the same level of quality, they can be released every six months. I don't mind.

    Left Behind delivers more emotions that many mass-produced stories about saving the world. Naughty Dog has created a great script and delivered extremely likable and realistic main characters. This DLC offers something more than emotional storytelling - stealth levels are really great as well. Simply put - it's a must have for all fans of The Last of Us.

    Far Cry 3 is one of the most interesting games of the year. The single-player mode is a great mix of a big sandbox and an atmospheric story with interesting characters. There are some mistakes here and there, but all in all everyone should be satisfied - sandbox lovers and fans of good storylines alike. What's more, the multiplayer isn't something added just because it needs to be - it's a great, big, rightful mode focused on cooperation (an additional co-op mini-campaign that borrows character progress from the standard multiplayer is a welcome bonus). Far Cry 3 is a package full of pleasant surprises. An insanely good game.

    Torchlight II is a meaty chunk of a great hack'n'slash that appeals to all gamers disappointed with new mechanics introduced in Diablo III. The developers have added some new, interesting ideas and the game's future looks bright. Of course, there are some minor flaws, but they won't prevent you from having lots of fun. I personally think that Diablo III is an overall better production, but the most important thing in any game is to enjoy playing it, and both of them provide that.

    The Witcher 2 on the X360 is a masterpiece. It's easy to prey on the developers that are unable to create a good port of an original game, but that's not the case. I don't have to be patriotic to see the gigantic amount of work the authors have done - I have seen this port in action almost a year ago and I was far from being ecstatic.

    The Stanley Parable doesn't pack a punch as great as Portal did, but my time in the office turned out to be very enjoyable. Galactic Cafe has made one of the best parodies ever, a game that is funny, and makes fun of other games with style. You should definitely try it out, because it's a very original product that doesn't pretend to be your friend. All of this doesn't matter, because it's just a game. But what a game it is!

    Will we be playing Diablo III ten years from now and be as happy with it, as we are with its predecessor? No doubt. Even though the new Diablo has some technical issues and some solutions create controversies, the gameplay model is timeless. An interesting quest system, engrossing battles, versatile gameplay and a masterpiece of a multiplayer are only some of the game's qualities.

    Portable version of LittleBigPlanet is a very good game without any bigger flaws. PS Vita finally gets a game that showcases the console's abilities. LBP also demonstrates that mixing classical controls with touch panels makes sense, but it has to be done as an integral part of gameplay and not just a silly gimmick. LBP for PSV is a must buy for all owners of Sony's newest console and it should become an investment for months to come (thanks to creative fans of the series).

    Is it possible to create an accessible and modern game that's still an uncompromising, engaging and demanding experience? The Witcher 2 proves that it is definitely possible. Time spent with Assassins of Kings flies unbelievably fast. The player is thrown into a dangerous world full of betrayal, corruption, intolerance and battles for influence.

    NBA 2K13 shoots and stores - lots of interesting improvements in the gameplay make the new basketball from Visual Concepts into something almost perfect. New game mode and exciting multiplayer matches guarantee additional hundreds hours of gameplay and the improved physics engine works quite well. It's a pity, that there isn't much history of basketball in this game - previous installments were more generous in this area. All in all, competitors aren't needed in this genre - NBA 2K13 is a terrific game.

    The new Halo from 343 Industries is a big step in the right direction. There's no revolution to talk about, but there is some fresh air being pumped into this series. There aren't enough unique new things to bow down to the developers, but Halo 4 provides loads of fun. If you're an old fan, you'll be very pleased. If you're against Halo - it's a great opportunity to give the series another chance. Halo 4 is not the best installment in the franchise, but definitely is the most atmospheric and varied one.

    FIFA 14 is a mature, well designed game without spectacular innovations. The new shooting system or a bigger influence of the Fist Touch Control system are interesting conveniences, and transfer improvements or novelties in the FIFA Ultimate Team mode are most welcome. FIFA 14 continues ideas introduced in the previous installments - sometimes stability is better than bragging about a revolution (that never came).

    Armored Kill add-on doesn't change the basics of Battlefield 3 in such a way, that we'd want it to. Quality of new maps is uneven, and there are no massive vehicle based battles (even though the title can suggest it). There is some disappointment spread around this DLC - most importantly the new Tank Superiority game mode is not as interesting as one might think. But all in all, fans of Battlefield 3 should consider buying this expansion - for them it'll be worth it.

    The next-gen incarnation of FIFA 14 doesn't offer anything really new except the Ignite engine. EA Sports has improved a really good football game, and right now it is excellent. Animations and object collisions aren't funny anymore, and controlling the ball (even though harder than before) is even closer to the real thing. FIFA 14 on the PS4 looks and feels like watching a real game on your TV.

    Reaper of Souls is an expansion without serious flaws - it's definitely a very good game. New gameplay solutions fix most serious sins of the basic game and everyone that had even a little bit of fun playing Diablo III should taste the Reaper. It won't satisfy everyone, but with Reaper of Souls under its wing, Diablo III is one big step closer to the magnificence that is Diablo II.

    Michael Ancel and Ubisoft have created an excellent and highly addictive arcade game. Rayman makes a great first impression due to a diversified gameplay and a truly artistic visual style. It has a unique atmosphere that quickly affects the player - the feeling of being part of a crazy adventure where everything depends on us is constant.

    Despite some minor flaws, Divinity: Original Sin looks excellent and I can easily recommend it to all fans of this genre.

    Europa Universalis IV is the best game in the series and one of the most interesting strategy games ever. There are numerous changes - some subtle, and some obvious, but the overall feeling is this: the series is going in the right direction. The gameplay is more pleasant and user-friendly, than ever before, and offers more possibilities and fun. There's something for everybody: for conquerors, merchants and spies. Great job.

    Console port of Diablo III is a great investment for players that haven't had the opportunity to try out Blizzard's masterpiece, as well as for those players that have been put off by controversial changes in the series' mechanic. This version has two important things, that many have missed: an offline mode and a well crafted loot system. Yeah, it is a little less pretty than the PC version, but it makes up for it with other aspects of the game.

    Fall of the Samurai brings no revolution to the series. It's simply the same good Shogun 2 with new units and arsenal. This add-on is a definitive and strong finale to the samurai saga by The Creative Assembly.

    The new Football managers sparks some controversy - for the first time in the series's history you can use real money to buy things. For a couple of euro/dollars you can lift restrictions in the scouting network, do away with job permits or lock the possibility of being fired. Fortunately, all in all, FM 2013 is still the same, great game. No competition in this genre is a good thing, because SI Games can test and experiment as they please - without having to look at others. The direction of progress is sound and each new game is closer to real world of football.

    Gone Home is an interesting experiment, that didn't move me as much, as the developers probably wanted it to. The way of telling the story and the quality of the script seem a bit simplistic and tend to look at the gamer from a high position. Still, I think Gone Home is a step in a right direction and I really like these kinds of experiences. If only the developers had put more work into polishing the game - perhaps next time?

    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.

    Tribes: Ascend is quite an acomplishment. The developers have managed to recreate atmosphere and gameplay from first two games of the series and still make it a game not only for the veterans. The end result is one of the best games with micro transactions on the market. You can spend nothing and have loads of fun being more than just cannon fodder for the paying customers.

    Titanfall isn't perfect from the technical side, but it definitely is from the gameplay and fun sides. Respawn Entertainment have created something much more than just "Call of Duty with mechs". The basis seems very similar, but on top of it there's a game that steps above and beyond well-known standards and gives much more satisfaction (even while noticing all the minor issues). I hope, that Titanfall will stay in the FPS major league for a long time to com.

    Blizzard's new game has two different faces and both of them show clearly, that Heart of the Swarm is a truly great game for both fans of storylines and scripted missions, as well as for avid online players, that dream of defeating the entire Korean nation during some kind of tournament. Blizzard continues to release boxed expansions and that's a good strategy. Buying a big add-on, full of new content for the price of several DLCs is an excellent offer.

    An enjoyable and very spectacular campaign that gets more intense with every mission, a decent multiplayer that should provide many hours of great fun for the lovers of fast-paced action, excellent audio and visuals - this game has everything that defines a real blockbuster.

    It could seem that after almost two decades Ed Boon and his team will have had enough of the Mortal Kombat series. New Netherrealms game proves something entirely different. Even though the creator of this crazy and brutal universe had admitted during interviews that he would like to start something new, he still treats Mortal Kombat with heart. Only to have it torn out and smashed into pieces in fountains of blood for the players' entertainment. The newest installment in Mortal Kombat series is an absorbing, thought out, atmospheric and at the same time absurd game.

    Rebooting Tomb Raider is the best thing that could have happened to the series. The game is full of story-wise emotions and superbly directed action scenes, and it still has a very strong human factor. I'm rarely this positive about a game. Crystal Dynamics took a risk that won't appeal to some orthodox fans, but all in all the developers have succeeded. The most important thing to know is this: the new Tomb Raider is one of the best action-adventure games I have ever played.

    DmC isn't exactly what fans wanted - many changes could have been avoided, and the combat system seems too simple. The latter is most painful to all the hardcore gamers, that have perfected their fighting skills in previous games. On the other hand DmC is a really good game that keeps you glued to the screen until you see the final cut-scene. The best way is to approach it without prejudice and don't compare it to older installments. DmC isn't a fifth game in the series, it's a spin-off (much like Price of Persia from 2008) and I'd be glad to get a sequel of this particular game (it has more potential in many aspects).
