    RIFT is an interesting proposition, and its existence has to be acknowledged on a MMO map. But you need to remember that despite some novelties, this game offers a very classic approach to gameplay, so don't expect anything revolutionary.

    Ubisoft's card game demands lots of thinking, detailed planning and constant changes in tactics. The developer is strongly supporting the game (new decks, add-ons and balance fixes), what makes it a great tournament game. Perhaps it's not the best product for gamers avoiding long time engagement, but even they should consider it. Duel of Champions is a great game for a thinking player.

    Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New N' Tasty is a great example on how to resurrect old games. All the great things from the original coexist with tweaks and improvements, that make the game look and feel modern. You can be a little upset by a high difficulty level and a very weak co-op mode (but that could improve in the next installment, right?), but all in all it's a really good game.

    A great shooter that combines TPP action with rail shooting. The developer has struck gold by filling the game with enormous amounts of content. The game provides lots of fun - dozens of hours even, if you sum up the single player campaign, playing with secrets, weapons and perks, and the time spent in multiplayer.

    The developers have succeeded in creating a game faithful to the tradition and at the same time a game full of new elements and mechanics, that make it feel fresh. All that, plus a great campaign and a variety of multiplayer options make Anno 2070 an excellent game and even some technical issues can't change that.

    Darksiders II is a great follow-up aimed mainly at the fans of the first game. Fortunately it can easily appeal to players unfamiliar with War's adventures, players simply looking for a good slasher. The game offers lots of fun, making the player not only show off his/her skills in fighting and jumping, but in logical thinking as well. The game's quality suffers a tiny bit because of its graphics and lack of a really "big" ending. But remember - these small flaws are not enough to discourage anyone. Darksiders II is a great investment that will keep you glued to the screen for a long time.

    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.

    Sine Mora meets all the expectations. Right now it's the best and prettiest shoot'em up on current-gen consoles. It's an artisticly amazing game - looks great and has a fitting soundtrack by Akira Yamaoka. I hope that the whole genre will draw from this game. It establishes new standards.

    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.

    Orcs Must Die! 2 is a very good successor to a well made original OMD. Orc extermination gives you a lot of fun, and thanks to an extended arsenal, trap upgrades, new enemies and an excellent co-op mode the gameplay is even better than before. Unfortunately there aren't many levels – the game could benefit from some extra stages. We can bet that the developers will offer new levels in future DLCs.

    Monaco is a lot like Hotline Miami. The latter is a great "psychedelic killing simulator" while Monaco is probably one of the best "burglar simulators" out there. All it took was simple graphics, good ideas and excellent execution (and that meant many months of hard work). Monaco is a complicated machine that delivers chaos and fun at the player's wish. It's worth a shot!

    Cole MacGrath returns in style and his personal progress reflects itself it the game's quality. InFamous 2 is a sequel that develops knows ideas in a good way. The story is more compelling and expressive and our hero has some new, useful powers. The game takes us to some interesting (but a little imitative) places and guarantees a lot of fun challenges and spectacular battles. All of it would benefit from some basic tweaking – mission differentiation, city landscape upgrades and control improvements. But these faults are nothing when compared to the game's advantages. InFamous 2 is a dream come true for fans of the original and other similar games.

    Sleeping Dogs is – for me - one of the biggest surprises of 2012. I had absolutely no interest in this game and was expecting a mediocre GTA clone with some extra brutality on the top. After just 2 hours of playing my opinion changed dramatically. I haven't had the opportunity to experience a game with such a compelling hero for a long time. Every death of a friendly character had an impact on me. Even reading a report describing tortures and death of the protagonist's predecessor gave me chills. A standing ovation!

    The developers haven't created a new game. Even though Global Offensive has some small innovations, it's mostly an adjustment of a well known game to today's standards. After a few hours I felt some kind of relief, that Valve kept the good old CS intact, but then something hit me. There are no radical changes – only a very obvious lifting, and this series is in trouble. CS:GO is a great game only because the original CS is a great game. If you're not a fan of this kind of gameplay, don't buy Global Offensive – it offers nothing more.

    The Book of Unwritten Tales is one of the best AAA adventure games in years. It has everything a true classic in the genre should have, but is at the same time very contemporary. Excellent choice of actors, great dialogue, interesting puzzles are the biggest assets of this game. The locations leave a little to be desired in terms of "epicness", but if you consider yourself a fan of adventure games, you shouldn't wait any longer - buy it!

    Endless Legend does not set new quality standards in the 4X genre, but it delivers on all fronts and has some really unique features: an interesting world, original factions and seasons change. All these elements are combined with well known things with great results. It's not perfect but you can turn a blind eye on some flaws when everything else is so good.

    Alexander Bruce - Antichamber's creator - went out of his way to give us something more than just another first-person Portal-inspired puzzle game that appeals to critics using it's alleged artistic value. Antichamber is an unusual, fresh, intriguing and great experience. A complex mind game that will find fans among art lovers and regular gamers alike. Give your brains a break from regular shooters and give them something more interesting to process. Give them Antichamber.

    WildStar was announced as a hardocore MMORPG that would offer a new quality to the fans of the genre. Most of these promises have been kept. Except for some technical errors, the game looks solid and offers a great, dynamic combat system which effectively doubles the fun. Given that this is only the beginning of the development of this new MMO, we are dealing with a highly promising production.

    Dragonborn is a terrific DLC - perhaps even a better one that Bloodmoon, that it tries to recall. The game now features lots of novelties that - in connection with interesting quests, a big island to explore and dungeons to loot - create an impressive main course. The full potential has not been reached (riding dragons can be uncomfortable and the ending is kind of weak) but when compared to many contemporary expansions, Dragonborn is an excellent DLC and a must have for the fans of the series.

    Dragon Age II turned out to be less of a revolution than expected. The game is very similar to its predecessor in many aspects but offers so much new content and so many changes, that there can be no doubt that it is a rightful sequel.

    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.

    Bulletstorm is a very creative, visionary, spectacular and uplifting game and its didactical values can't be overrated. Only a polish game will help you broaden your vocabulary with new idioms, will take you to one of the most beautiful tourist resorts in the history of gaming and will introduce you to new friends that you can discuss principal concepts of Nietzche's philosophy with.

    The trip to Badass Crater of Badassitude is an excellent endeavor for all fans of the original game, for the lovers of unique atmosphere, crazy characters, dark humor and carnage in the best possible way. The second Borderlands 2 DLC is a better one than Captain Scarlett. Both expansions are a good investment for fans of the series, but in a direct confrontation, the crazy and uncompromising Mr. Torgue wins. I want more! Let's hope the upcoming two add-ons are equally good.

    Thinking about DLC's would be less annoying if all add-ons had the quality of Old World Blues. It's a well-produced original story filled with humor and excellent dialogue. It's worth its price and your time. Fans of New Vegas won't be disappointed because this DLC keeps the best parts of the original game and serves them in a great way. If the developers have something like that in store for us, I'm in!

    Were it not for some technical issues and licensing problems, the new PES could be even better. PES 2013 is most certainly the best installment in the series in years. The developers are on the right path of changing things for the better, and right now constructing actions and scoring goals is very enjoyable. Everything has been rebuilt - from the defensive to the attack, and an improved AI allows to keep the team disciplined in terms of tactics. Having in mind next year's supposed revolutionary changes, we can assume, that PES is back in the game for real.

    Mists of Pandaria is a really good expansion for World of Warcraft that offers plenty to all players, regardless of the play style they prefer. Let's hope that the promise of frequent updates will be kept and no one will get bored with existing content. Everyone should be able to answer this question: What is Mists of Pandaria? For me it's a WoW adventure I have been waiting for since 2010. Remember though, that grading Mists of Pandaria right now is simply an attempt to foresee where Blizzard's game is headed.

    EA Sports gives you a game that is an extremely playable snow monster. You swoop down the slopes like an avalanche and all these air tricks make you want to book a ticket to a ski resort. Plus all the special challenges that diversify the gameplay are spot on.

    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.

    Metro: Last Light isn't just another AAA shooter aimed at a typical gamer. The game's strength lies in its mature, brutal content - and I don't mean just the story (that will get its own book soon). Metro has a ton of amazing little details that make this virtual world seem very real. And what's more - the game is absolutely beautiful. Taking all this into consideration, there can be only one verdict: must buy.

    Botanicula is yet another game for people looking for some unusual aesthetic emotions. Upon launching Animata Design's game you can be sure you're embarking on a short, but exceptional journey that makes ordinary adventure games seem sad and bleak.
