    Total War: Rome 2 is pure enjoyment. The strengths of the first installments are still there, mostly in the form of the diversity between different factions and armies. The limited amount of armies, freedom in missions and handy execution of 'auto resolve' only add on to this. It might not look as great as the images might have you suspect, but it's still an easy recommendation.

    Left 4 Dead 2 manages to recapture the strong points of the first game while improving on them too. If the real zombie apocalypse is going to be as fun as this one, you have nothing to worry about.

    Battlefield 1 has a few small errors, but you will hardly notice them as scale of the online action is so big. Finally even online play is impressive, which makes Battlefield 1 the best Battlefield-game in years.

    Persona is a RPG with a strong story, a decent battle system and interesting characters. It is also a lot of fun to upgrade your Persona’s and other abilities. The game starts a bit slow, but is really hard to let go when the story unfolds. Persona 4 is a game that will bring back life in the good old PlayStation 2.

    There is put a lot of afford in Professor Layton and Pandora’s box. The cutscenes are beautiful, the story is nifty and the puzzles are challenging. The game does look a lot like its predecessor, almost every type of puzzle we’ve seen in the first game, is also in Pandora’s box. This game is just bigger, better and more badass.

    BioShock 2 feels like coming home after a long holiday. The game has a lot of elements which we saw in the first game, but also some nice improvements. Rapture is still a very nice place to explore and we love the fact that you can use guns and plasmids at the same time.

    Borderlands is an amazing collection of bizarre weaponry, hectic fights and great humour. The different environments, crazy weapons and unique skills keep the game fresh from start to finish. The game might have been better off with a slightly lower pace when playing alone, but this is easily outweighed by the fun you'll have when playing with a friend. If you're going to buy just one cooperative game this year, let it be Borderlands 2.

    LittleBigPlanet on the Vita is a true sequel to LittleBigPlanet 2. The touch and tilt functionalities offer a new way to create levels and the option to make iOS-style minigames, give LittleBigPlanet an endless amount of levels and games. The fact that it's not possible to play one of the seven million LittleBigPlanet levels made for PS3 is a bit of a bummer.

    Colin McRae: DiRT 2 is a beautiful product. The game has left the old school rally feeling to put in a little more show driving. As a race purist i think it’s kind of a misery, but at the same time, i enjoyed it very much. The game looks awesome and it gives you a perfect rally feel. Thanks to the flashback, you never have to redo a match again. A must have for every race fan.

    Great puzzles, lovely cut scenes and vibrant 3D environments; Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask is the total package. The Layton formula is renewed just enough through a new search function, some action sequences and great 3D implementation. The story might be somewhat predictable, but because of these great improvements Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask is the best Layton game so far.

    Mirror’s Edge is still a unique game in every way. The story is captivating, the action is exciting, and the graphics are even better on the PC than they were on the consoles. That’s not enough for a higher score, but every PC-owner who wasn’t been able to experience the challenging and thrilling experience Mirror’s Edge has to offer, should do it now.

    Strategically speaking, Pimin 3 is the strongest part in the series. The levels are tenuously constructed, and blossom into more complex environments slowly but surely. You’ll miss a cooperative mode, and some of the Pikmin trail behind stupidly from time to time, but you will look past these problems because of all the other things it has to offer.

    The charm of Machinarium is the perfect play between the magic of the setting, the mysterious characters, little visual details and the soundtrack who binds it all together. This reanimation of a extinct and decapitated genre is still going strong, between all the great games coming out on the market these days. It gives us hope about the future of point-and-click.

    StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is an excellent continuation of the series.

    Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee was a classic on PlayStation One and nearly twenty years later it feels as fantastic as ever. This due to the fact that the game is built from the ground up and the biggest flaws of the original game are history.

    Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is a great game to spend your summer holiday with. The story is of a perfect length and grabs you throughout the game.

    A fantastic translation to games of America’s national pastime, baseball. Practically all facets of the popular sport can be found in the game, in a very realistic manner. This holds true for the players, who look great and are animated brilliantly. It’s almost as if you’re actually a part of the Major Leagues. For whoever wants to start playing with their own homemade player, the excellent Road to the Show-mode’s got you covered. There are a few sloppy mistakes, but that doesn’t affect the fun you’ll have in any way. Fun that can be had, not only by baseball-veterans, but also by newcomers.

    Rockstar has given all, to deliver the complete experience of Chinatown Wars on the PSP and succeeded to do that. The game looks great and the extra missions are bringing more variation to the game. The story has less dept then other GTA-games en that is being hided well by the humour in the game. The minigames don’t come to there right without the touchscreen, but that doesn’t matter. Chinatown Wars is still a great game, which keeps you busy for a long time.

The online multiplayer can accommodate up to sixty players, and, together with the online co-op mode with parallel storyline, guarantees more than enough gameplay to keep you warm until Christmas.

    Trials fusion is pretty much the same as its predecessors. The great gameplay is still there, in a shinier outfit. The expanded Track Editor and extra challenges give the game a lot of replay value, and tricks make for extra variety. Trials Fusion is a great Trials-game.

    Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon's Keep is a slightly eccentric combination of a bunch of elements that usually can't be mixed. Tina's fantastical reimagining of the main story from a multi-functional role: it's an ode and parody to all sorts of geeky things, gives more insight into the characters of Borderlands 2 and critiques average game design. Humor and tragic are being mixed in the same way as the main story, and there's enough to keep you entertained for a while.

    OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood is a game that takes you skyhigh just to drop you down painfully. This hardcore game needs perfect timing, offers a great diversity in surroundings and a great soundtrack. Too bad the local multiplayer is not added to this awesome game yet.

    Xcom 2 offers the same challenging turn-based gameplay and tactical possibilities on consoles as it does on pc. It is such a thrill to lure aliens in your trap, while connecting emotionally to the soldiers that work for you. It is too bad the loading times are a tad long.

    Emblem Fates is the most extended game in the series, thanks to three storylines that are a tad cliche. Thankfully the strategic gameplay and complex tactics make up for that, cause this game can pull you in and take tens of hours of your time.

    Frustration is what makes us so addicted to N++. If you love tough and challenging platform games, N++ is worth every penny. If not, then still you can enjoy the multiplayer mode or making your own levels.

    Dust: An Elysian Tail is a near perfect Arcade title. The anime style isn't really as special as it could have been and not all the voice acting is up to par, but it has a deep and mature story line spanning easily fifteen hours (counting the side quests and challenge arena's) and a fighting system that makes you want to pick up the controller every time. Dust: An Elysian Tail is simply one of the best titles the Xbox Live Arcade has to offer.

    The season mode might not have changed, but the improved physics in NHL 13 compensate for that easily. More often than ever situations unfold like they would in a real hockey match. NHL 13 deserves to be crowned as the most realistic hockey game ever.

    For the fans this is the greatest gift imaginable. The Elite are great for both spectacle and tactical creativity. This game is tough, but it is so worth the struggle.

    DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition is a re-release that is actually worth it. The brilliant game Devil May Cry was, gets polished exactly where it needed to be updated. For example the higher frame-rate and the difficulty level that is changeable.
