    From Dust is a fun game, especially when someone wants to play god. Light and short missions allow the player to enjoy creating the world but after a while boredom creeps in. The locations change but the player is forced to do the same things over and over again. It's a game worth getting to know thanks to its great physics engine, but its not for everybody.

    Elite: Dangerous deserves the highest praise for its potential. But you still have to look at a real product available today, and that's not as stellar. After a few months many of the problems will be forgotten, but right now Elite: Dangerous is a very young, a bit prematurely issued game full of imperfect features. And at the same time it shines and pulls you in with a unique type of experience.

    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.

    Even though Company of Heroes 2 has some issues, the fact is this: it's a truly great game. Evolutionary changes made by the developers turned out to be an excellent choice. Fans of the original Company of Heroes are getting the same game, but superior in every way (and enriched with some cool new things). Relic's game is a must have for dynamic strategy game enthusiasts - it is the best RTS set during WWII.

    Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty is a very well made DLC, but it's not for everyone. Fans of the first game, people who love the constant grind and looking for better loot, will have the most fun. If you want to complete this DLC once (and only for the story) you'll be disappointed. The plot is really cliché and without anything special, and fighting the same opponents between episodes can be a bore. What is more, the notice board has some really dull side quests. All in all - even though guys from Triptych Games missed the goal here and there - this DLC is a must buy for every Borderlands fan.

    The final expansion to The Sims 3 is simply very good. The idea of a future, that your Sims can shape, is really interesting. What's more, we get new skills and jobs, a ton of cool things and gadgets, dreaming and plumbots (a very good idea!). Into the Future is a product comparable to the best of the series - it is a worthy end to The Sims 3 line of games.

    What is Samorost 3? It's more of an exploration game full of child-like wonder than a classic point'n'click adventure. It's a unique audiovisual experience, a pretty little indie gem that has more in common with real art than many modern art installations in various museums.

    World of Tanks is a game with potential - it introduces many interesting elements that surely will find their way into the gallery of video gaming standards that will by used many times in the future. However there are three main problems: the game is half-baked, lacks attention to detail and has a terribly annoying payment system. I would rather buy a complete game and enjoy it with friends than have to engage in frequent micro-transactions that are a camouflaged form of a monthly subscription.

    The newest add-on doesn't introduce any revolutionary changes, but sums up the game's evolution well by offering an immersive single player campaign as well as a great multiplayer mode. And since Retribution is a standalone product, it is also a great game for people who want to begin their journey into the world of Dawn of War II.

    GTA Online has great, but not fully realized, potential. The developers need to sort out problems with servers and some irritating gameplay issues, and after that we need to be given an expansion with bank robberies. Fortunately the entire online mode for GTA V is going to be updated on a regular basis (from new missions to new clothes and haircuts). And for now - get some friends together and go do lots of seemingly absurd things. The fun is tremendous.

    Grim Fandango is a work of art but the remastered edition leaves some things to be desired. The original is worth every praise - the remaster is not. It's still a great game but when a developer tries to freshen up old classics for the younger generation it has to be done right. In other words - it's almost the exactly the same case as with Heroes of Might & Magic III HD.

    F1 2012 is a very uneven game. Some decisions in terms of game modes are really strange - scaling down the career mode and removing the Grand Prix are not the things one would expect from such a game, and challenges can't be considered a real substitute. Fortunately the racing is still full of positive emotions and an improved driving model makes the game exciting for any virtual driver. Better AI and full usage of KERS and DRS systems are pleasant as well. The new F1 game is also a technical masterpiece, but overall - as a product - it's a little disappointing.

    Triumph Software is a skilled bunch of people that have created a really good strategy game. You could have some reservations about the graphics, very minimal portrayal of different castles or not strong enough focus on diplomacy, but none of these issues spoils the fun. Age of Wonders III is a well made, extremely playable game.

    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.

    In terms of gameplay mechanics and story progression inFamous: Second Son is like a typical sandbox game from the previous generation. The most important thing about it is the graphics - they're amazing, and Seattle in this game outshines every other virtual city. Second Son is "just" a good TPP shooter that shows the power of PS4 - but there will be lots of better and prettier games for this console in the future. Buy it only if the graphics are the most important thing for you and you need to test your expensive new equipment. Otherwise wait for a price drop.

    A brave attempt at pushing the series forward. Unfortunately some minor issues take away the feeling of playing a really excellent game. On the other hand Wargame is being updated almost daily, and the results are impressive - I have no doubt that Eugen's new baby is a must have for all lovers of military and the Cold War. But remember - this is a mostly multiplayer game.

    Second big, story-driven DLC for Bioshock Infinite is a mix of exploration, stealth gameplay, following an interesting storyline and finding many hidden facts about the whole Bioshock universe. Getting to the end of Elizabeth's adventure can take up to 6 hours and everything ends with a quite shocking finale, that resembles the one from the original game. It's a must have for fans of the series.

    Atilla is the same for Rome II, as Napoleon was for Empire - a very interesting and playable expansion. But is Total War: Attila interesting for fans of the entire series? Definitely! It's a game aimed at Medieval II enthusiasts. You get diverse factions, a correct strategy map and a great nation management system based on a tech tree and family tree. It's not perfect but it is very good.

    The Wolf Among Us is yet another good game from Telltale Games. One major flaw is dismissing some characters - that's the reason the first season of The Walking Dead is and will be a better offering. Everything else - from the atmosphere to the storyline - is really good. Apparently Lee and Clementine's adventure wasn't a one-time high quality offer. I can recommend this game with a clear conscience.

    ArcheAge has been prepared for the western player in a very good way. Trion Worlds has managed to tweak this Korean game to meet the demands of European and American markets, and that's not an easy task. What's more, the game is being constantly improved and expanded. I'm certain that fans of the MMO genre will be very happy - at least the ones that like fighting other players.

    World of Tanks appears pretty late on the PS4 but does it with style. Playing without paid subscription eventually becomes tiresome but there's a big advantage: you don't need to pay for the PS Plus service. Owners of Sony's console have finally received a free, well made, pretty and engrossing war game.

    Forza Motorsport 5 is a truly great game burdened with very bad marketing choices. It has an excellent driving model and superb graphics, but lack of some basic elements and the publisher's greed, that makes gamers pay lots of extra money for something that should be free, are really serious flaws. In case this extra content is made available for free, I will happily modify my opinion.

    Stasis is a well made adventure game with a great atmosphere and an excellent setting, reminiscent of Alien movies. It's a game that doesn't try to revolutionize the genre or to compete with classics - it should simply deliver a decent amount of fun to adventure and sci-fi horror enthusiasts. It's a shame that many smaller and bigger issues can kill almost all the fun.

    The New Euro Truck Simulator is a game that will attract fans of previous games for many hours. I'm certain that many virtual drivers will spend weeks in their trucks driving through Europe. But if you're that kind of player that doesn't like driving trucks, there's nothing for you here - the rules haven't changed and the slow gameplay is as slow as before. But all in all, ETS2 is the best trucking game from SCS Software.

    After Dark is a well made expansion to Cities: Skylines. It introduces some eagerly awaited novelties: there are new buildings, new transport solutions, and a night-day cycle (which is really interesting and enriches the gameplay). You can wonder whether this add-on is worth its current price-tag - fans don't need to persuaded but everyone else should wait for a discount.

    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.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War is one of the most original games of the year. It deals with a difficult theme and skillfully shows heavy emotions by picturing a war from an unusual perspective. A great story and superb audio-video aspect create an almost perfect game, although some simplifications and issues distort this image. Still, I will think about Valiant Hearts for a long time.

    Until Dawn is a great example of interactive cinema. Here we have a great looking game with interesting characters and truly impactful decision making moments. The story isn't groundbreaking but the entire product is a well thought out slasher that doesn't allow to save your progress manually (and that creates tons of tension!).

    All in all, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is a good game that tries too hard to fit into a market shaped by Call of Duty's success. Ubisoft's race against other franchises looks quite well, but losing the series' roots can be disappointing.
