    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).

    Black Flag is a better game than Assassin's Creed III, but it still isn't as good as our first meeting with Ezio. Ubisoft has managed to create the best game about pirates (really!), but their story isn't as universal, as Red Dead Redemption was in the "western" category. But don't get me wrong - Black Flag is really, really good. Besides an excellent Animus story, the part in Abstergo's offices is truly great. I'm really curious what the future holds for the series - this time in true next-gen fashion.

    Bastion is an arcade game with some RPG elements and an uncomplicated mechanics but definitelly it's a game with a soul. It's lovely, colorful and offering a lot of joy just thanks to its looks. Supergiant Games introduced us to an unusual game, a next step of evolution on the way of rich storyline that doesn't limit itself to reading notes and talking to NPCs.

    Rockstar does it again. The new Max not only reminds us of his old tricks, but shows some new as well. Every minute you spend with Max Payne 3 gives you lots of fun and thanks to modes making you want to play again and a solid multiplayer the game won't become boring too soon.

    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.

    XCOM: Enemy Within is a really good expansion for an excellent game. After a few hours of gameplay it's impossible to think that we used do play without it. And even though there's no new campaign, there's so much new stuff, that you can happily rediscover Enemy Unknown. This expansion isn't cheap, but the money definitely won't go down the drain.

    Forza Horizon 2 is a much better game than its predecessor. It doesn't try to get additional money from the player, offers a completely open world and is more skillfully designed. Additionally the player receives beautiful, smooth graphics, tons of cars and a cool atmosphere. Right now Forza Horizon 2 has no real competitor in the arcade racer genre.

    Back to Karkand is an enjoyable expansion, that increases the value of Battlefield 3 itself. You should look at it in a most positive way, but we still hope for more. DICE have hit the nail on the head and have given the fans a solid piece of great fun.

    Path of Exile is a fascinating and a really big game and simply talking about it can take hours. The game is focused on online gameplay and even though you can play solo, the most fun comes from adventuring with some friends. Path of Exile is a must have for all Diablo fans. It offers dozens of hours of great fun and does that completely free of charge.

    Ni No Kuni is a game that conjures mixed emotions. Sometimes I got bored of chasing monsters, got tired of the fighting system that is hard to control, got irritated by some characters that like to repeat their dialogue over and over again, and I got saddened by plot twists - they were too obvious and stripped of symbolism that is present in Ghibli's movies. Despite that I wanted to play more, because almost every time something good happened at the exactly right moment, something that restored my faith in this universe. Ni No Kuni can surprise you till the end, but all in all - I wish it was something more.

    Dragon Age: Inquisition is the best installment in the series and one of the best games in BioWare's history. There's a lot to praise: an interesting story, cool characters, big world, Skyhold. Sure, there are some minor issues and the combat system isn't perfect but the scale and attention to detail make all of that seem unimportant. An excellent game indeed.

    Collection 1 is an interesting initiative and a good purchase for all lovers of Infinity Ward's multiplayer. All new maps are quality products that reveal the flaws of original maps. Simply put: this add-on is worth recommending and two new ops are an additional asset to consider.

    If you're of age, buy Hotline Miami. It's a great, emotionally heavy game with superb mechanics. It's a bit expensive and offers only a few hour of fun, but it's worth the price for the opportunity to ponder on man's nature. I wouldn't mind, if it was longer. You could appreciate simple, old school graphics, an excellent soundtrack and unique gameplay more. Still - the game's great!

    I'm disappointed with the new Forza, but not because it's a poor game or one that doesn't meet my expectations. It's a really good game, but there's no big ambition. You play it and you put it away. The first admiration fades away quickly and later on it is evident, that the developers lacked ideas for filling an open world with content. It looks as if the new Forza is a framework that will be filled by the means of DLC. How else can you think about it, when all the game's secrets can be revealed by using real money? It can be done using the game's virtual currency as well, but it will take more time. Playground's new game is a technological gem and nothing more.

    Obsidian's new game has some minor issues, but the grand picture is enchanting. The Stick of Truth is a stylish "the best of South park" packed into a well-made game that will definitely please all the fans. After more than a dozen hours spent with Cartman and his buddies I can confidently call South Park: The Stick of Truth the first big game of 2014 that doesn't disappoint.

    It's tough to judge Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition. I had to spent a lot of time setting up the game, so that playing on my PC would be comfortable, but when I finally got to play it, everything was over 3 days later. I had fun with all the novelties and admired the genius of the original Dark Souls with only a few minor flaws along the way. This game is enchanting on a new platform and I can simply recommend it to everyone, because this edition is a really great package (very good additions, a so-so conversion and an excellent original game).

    Aftermath is so much more than a mediocre new gameplay mode. Every one of the four new locations is of high quality - there's something for the lovers of infantry battles, as well a map that should please fans of Teheran Highway. All in all - Aftermath is a very good add-on, that expands on the ideas from the basic game and is worth recommending to supporters of middle-sized maps.

    Football Manager 2014 - for fans of the series and lovers of a more strategic version of football - is a truly great and unparalleled game. Attention to detail, representation of various mechanics and a very high satisfaction rate deserve the highest praise. On the other hand, this year's edition brings surprisingly little novelties and innovations. Still - FM enthusiasts will definitely love this game.

    New gameplay elements introduced in Brave New World are an example of a perfectly though-out innovation. This virtual machine works great and it's obvious, that the developers did their best. Even though there are more important rules than before, the gameplay is clear and enjoyable. This is a big achievement , considering the level of this game's complexity. Everything now works together like a big organism.

    Mortal Kombat for PlayStation Vita is a game worth your attention, especially if you haven't had the opportunity to check out last year's "big" MK and you miss the original installments. It's a great reboot - well made, reminiscent of the golden age, has lots of fantastic warriors and some unique bonuses.

    If you have experienced Lara Croft's recent adventure, Tomb Raider's Definitive Edition isn't for you. It has no new content that's worth your money. But in case you own an Xbox One or a PS4 and haven't had the opportunity to play the new Tomb Raider, run to the store right now. You simply need to play this game.

    In a perfect world the review of an MMO game should be written a year after its debut, but it is how it is - the gamers want to know what they are getting into as fast as possible. How do I grade this game then? Very highly, because BioWare has developed an excellent game. It has great attention to detail, it's carefully thought out with a great world, good mechanics and a lot of cool little things that change this MMO into something new and uncommon.

    A big surprise. Very few would bet on Volition's new game and as it turns out Saints' adventures are an addictive sandbox game full of absurd sense of humor and break-neck action. The storyline pulls you in from the beginning, level variations exterminate boredom and the streets of Steelport are full of additional things to do that make the game last longer.

    PlanetSide 2 allows you to take part in a fully fledged war and write the history of the planet yourself - it's no scripted spectacle. Who wouldn't want to be a part of a small unit that has to stop an assault of a much bigger army while waiting for reinforcements? Remember - all of that happens in confrontation with a live, intelligent player. PlanetSide 2 works great for hardcore FPS fans, and for those players who simply want to shoot from time to time. The most important thing: the game is free (micro transactions are far from being problematic) and everyone should try it.

    Far Cry 4 is an excellent game. Smaller or bigger changes since the previous game create an image of a more dynamic and more expertly crafted product. We get great shooting mechanic, tons of weapons, decent AI and a cool co-op mode in the campaign. I wish snowy peaks were more prominent in the game and the storyline was as good as everything else. But if you put that aside, you get an almost perfect open world game.

    Those two God of War games are the best thing that happened to PlayStation Portable during its lifespan. At least that is the case when talking about western games - I presume that many lovers of japanese style won't feel the same way. But being a fan of good games and good slashers I wouldn't hesitate when thinking about buying this colelction. Well - maybe if you already have finished both games then I would wait for a lower price, but I wouldn't stay indifferent. God of War - Origins Collection is a great product.

    Shadow of Mordor takes lots from other games but offers enough originality to make it worth your while. You should be even more interested if you're a fan of Jackson's movies - Monolith's game is based first and foremost on this particular license. The game mixes slasher and stealth elements very well, presents a juicy and brutal piece of Middle-earth's story and proves that neglecting this universe isn't a good thing.

    Assassin's Creed III is a really good AAA game that sucks you in after a brief contact. Unfortunately there are some things missing, and minor flaws can be observed, and those things prevent me from considering Ubisoft's new game as something truly extraordinary. It has everything a game from this series should have, but after watching the end credits there's a feeling that something is lacking. Assassin's Creed III isn't such a big step forward, as AC II was for the original game. In sum: it's very good, but it could be better.

    The new Football Manager is a great game. It's still an extremely engrossing product that has been appealing to football fans for years. SI Games listens to their fans, improves the details and delivers a better game every year. That's the way to go.
