    Pikmin 3 is the best game in the series, but that's not enough to define it as a masterpiece. Game mechanics are effective and funny, thank to a flawless control system, but the absence of a true online mode and the lack of real new features don't help to differentiate the game from its predecessors. Anyway, this is a game that every Wii U owner should at least try, and the proof that Nintendo still is the master in terms of game design.

    Another great set of compelling levels and two new adorable skin make Pac-Man CE DX+ a must have for every Pac-Man addict. And, also, for anyone who simply is looking for something simple, classy and deep. Hands down one of the best puzzle game of this generation.

    A good port of Minecraft, nearly identical to the Xbox 360 one. The PC version is bigger and better, but this is a quality console experience.

    A beautiful, emotionally engaging, artfully crafted game, completely centered around exploration and telling a mature story through interaction.

    NBA 2K14 has everything a basketball fan wants to find in a videogame. Xbox One visual impact is astonishing and the new modes, with a preference for My Player, work very well. The ball physics need a little tuning, but the game is still great to play, to watch and to listen to.

    Saints Row IV doesn't excel in terms of gameplay, but it hits a home run in terms of fun and laughter. The plot is both absurd and beautiful and the activities are so varied that one can easily forgive its faults. If you want a sandbox and you don't take yourself too seriously, Saints Row IV is a game you don't want to miss.

    Most Wanted... and needed, to finally prove what Wii U can do by flexing its graphical muscles and capitalizing on its GamePad screen. An adrenalinic arcade racer by Criterion that shows the right criteria for developing Wii U ports in future.

    A moment of true evolution of the FPS genre. Titanfall is pure history in the making, right now, straight in front of our own eyes: a game that's simply impossible to miss.

    This is how DLCs or sequels should be made: by avoiding the "more of the same" formula. No sameness here, it's a great addition, with a lot of humour and unique gameplay. One of the greatest DLCs in recent years.

    Heart of the Swarm is not a revolution in the genre, but is what each StarCraft fan was expecting. It is an awesome RTS powered by amazing RPG elements, and its gameplay is able to bring the gamer’s mood to the next level, by unleashing some terrific cutscenes that drive the plot till the end.

    Don't worry about the free to play model business or the lack of night levels: Plants Versus Zombies 2 is exactly the game you were looking for. New plants and Plant Food add a new level of strategy, as well as the peculiar gameplay of the different worlds. Every single fan of the original game should give a chance to this sequel.

    Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is the franchise's best episode since Assassin's Creed II. By mixing the series classic gameplay based on stealth, action and exploration with the new naval features, Ubisoft Montreal created an exciting open world game in which lands and sea are both fully explorable without any kind of interruption.

    Diablo III is the best journey Blizzard has ever made in the world of console gaming. The control system is perfect and the flavour of slaying monsters on your sofa, with a joypad in your hands, is sometimes better than the one you feel with your PC. Graphics, though, remain better on a good computer.

    Electronic Arts keeps polishing the best soccer game on the planet: FIFA 14 is a predictable but outstanding achievement. Its matches show a thoughtful pace and the new ball protection mechanics fit perfectly in the formula. Simply put it's a must buy for every soccer enthusiast out there.

    Luigi's back, in his best game yet. Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon is a joyful adventure, remarkably polished, easy to fall in love with and full of stuff to discover and to play with. Visually outstanding, the game surpasses - in every way - the original Gamecube game, but the multiplayer mode is still archaic.

    Even on PS4 A Realm Reborn is a great game, with the upgrade to Full HD which is especially useful for a better HUD management. The DualShock 4 is comfy enough, and the touchpad helps to navigate better the interface. The game's major issue remains the excessive lag (but it's still better than on PS3).

    A great beat 'em up, perfect for a quick and easy match but also very deep for the "power user". If you're not familiar with the Persona series, the long story mode may confuse you a bit, but the gameplay is solid and extremely fun.

    Ni No Kuni is the old classic Japanese kolossal updated to our days. If the industry turned its back to the Japanese RPG genre as a whole and the relevance of Japanese games seems to fade away more and more each day... then the work of Level 5 and Studio Ghibli is to be considered a touching love letter to the land of the rising sun and its videogames culture.

    Telltale Games' take on werewolves, talking toads and fable's character is fantastic. The Wolf Among Us starts with a story driven episode who shows interesting characters, enjoying quick time events and an amazing art direction.

    Bravely Default is a role-playing game that tries to match the old school with new ideas, giving the player a good combat system, a mature story, but also a lackluster exploration. Mission accomplished.

    The DLC pieces aren't earth-shattering, but the complete pack is a good way to enjoy one of the most finely crafted action-rpg experiencs published this year, at a budget price.

    The same technical power enjoyed on other consoles, plus a greater tactical and tactile control. Visual Concepts' first steps on the Wii U platform are measured, yet secure.

    DMC is a really nice game as well as the QLOC PC porting. Significant visual impact, flawless optimization, good performances even with medium-low hardware configurations. It's a game that takes some distance from the previous installments of the saga and the white-haired Dante no longer exists, but is it really a problem?

    Unfortunately, Oceanhorn is not the Zelda of smartphones, but just a sufficient adventure game, unable to grant a solid gameplay and a compelling story. It's great to look, that's for sure, but not so fun to play.

    BioShock Infinite Burial at Sea - Episode 2 is the perfect ending to a saga that marked a generation and will be long remembered.

    Beyond the censorship on the European version, The Stick of Truth is the best South Park RPG that we could have hoped for: exaggerated, irreverent, almost perfect. We already want a sequel, DLC and so on.

    Despite the reassurances from Respawn Entertainment and the clear efforts by Bluepoint Games, the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall is not really on par with the original editions: the content might be the very same, yet the performance struggles quite a bit. In other words, Titans seem apparently more at ease with orbital drops than with generational leaps.

    Engaging and entertaining, Rogue Legacy is a solid remix of classic arcade cliches bend together with a pair of original twists. The result is a solid action game which will keep you playing for a long time.

    Refined, mad and really rich in contents, BattleBlock Theater is a well developed platform game which may satisfy both players looking for a solitary experience and others willing to apply for entertaining multiplayer sessions.

    SI Games confirms and enhances the extraordinary work done last year, making Football Manager 2014 the almost-perfect game for all the Ferguson wannabes out there. And if they keep making this game so good, in a couple of years we will have to raise our top review score to 11.
