    Tekken 6 on the PSP does everything you would expect and more. There are a lot of fighters, the loading times are surprisingly short, it looks just awesome and the battles are intense!

    Splinter Cell: Conviction is quite different from its predecessors. Less trial-and-error, more tactical and action based stealth. Sam Fisher became the ultimate killing machine in the renewal of the stealth genre.

    Graphics, gameplay, scale, storytelling, depth, content and the finish: Dragon Age: Inquisition proves that it can bring each of these components together without making any concessions.

    Fire Emblem: Awakening will have you taking your Nintendo 3DS everywhere, so you can take a few more steps while on your way to work for instance. It manages to grab players from start to finish and got me bummed out when having finished it. I'm jealous of those who still have the joy of discovering it because I'm positive that they'll have tons of fun with it. Fire Emblem: Awakening is for the 3DS what Advance Wars was for the GBA: a must-have.

    Resident Evil 5 is like an expensive diamond. The outside is polished well and the inside is strong enough to go through iron. The graphics of the gameplay and the cinematics are beautiful and full of detail. We can understand the criticism of the controls, but you can easily get used to it. The co-op is an exciting feature and when you are without a friend it turns out that Sheva is a great companion. Resident Evil 5 doesn’t revolutionize the series, but it is still a fantastic game to play.

    War is obviously outclassed by big brother Death. The agility of Death makes the combat feel more fluid and makes the platforming more fun. The addition of several RPG elements is a step forward in the franchise and the length, of at least twenty hours (forty if you want to get all collectibles and do all the side missions), will make sure you'll be spending a long time in the world of Darksiders 2.

    Charlie Murder is an absolute must for many gamers, especially if you’re looking for a new beat ‘m up or a fun co-op game. By combining simple action with loot and extensive character classes, Charlie Murder offers more depth than you might expect. It pays to think about how to level your character and selecting the right items. With a lot of content and diversity, the cool style and great humour Charlie Murder adds up to a great XBLA title.

    Mario Kart 8 is a phenomenal game. The game looks great, plays like a dream and is simply a whole lot of fun. No blue shield can interfere with that fact.

    Forget Jerusalem and forget Altaïr. Ezio's adventure in Renaissance Italy is better in every aspect! Both Florence and Venice are enormous living cities with an fantastic atmosphere, and even the smaller cities are wonderful to walk and climb through. There is only one big rotten apple: Italy's wonderful capital city Rome is the smallest location in the entire game.

    This is the best Total War game thanks to all the little tweaks. Sometimes little differences make a good game great. The battles ask of you that you think more about your actions and managing your empire never was easier. The sea battles are fun to watch, but are a little hard to control. Nevertheless, Empire: Total War is a game that can make you forget about the time.

    The Lara we know from long ago has grown up. Is that a bad thing? No, she is replaced by a new, maybe even better Lara, who will appeal to a future generation of gamers. If this game is a hint to what the future of Tomb Raider might be, than we are very much looking forward to the next game in the series.

    Metro Redux is superior to all other remakes. Both games in the collection are set in a terrifying yet creative world and offer an impressive experience. On top of that, 4A Games had added so much content you’d almost forget you’re ‘merely’ dealing with a remake. This collection will satisfy both fans and newcomers.

    There is so much to write about Guild Wars 2, so much to see and so much to discover. Reading a review won't do the game justice, you'll have to discover the magical world of Tyria for yourself. Be surprised at how simple, yet amazingly complex a world can be. And above all: you can leave your credit card safely tucked away in your wallet, because monthly costs is one of the few things Guild Wars 2 does not have.

    Persona 4: Golden is amazing. The story is great, combat system endlessly interesting, characters are all well done, there's tons to do and it's received some improvements regarding the original. It's also pretty accessible for a JRPG. It might be fantastic, but it never gets ridiculous. Do yourself a favor and pick this game up.

    Tekken Tag Tournament is the most polished and well thought through part in the Tekken series. It doesn't matter if you're playing alone or together: everything is about fun and competition. And the lack of gimmicks, like a story mode, show that this game doesn't need anything more than strong core gameplay.

    Bloodborne has a lot of similarities with Dark Souls, but it will surprise you as you will need to make changes to survive Yharnam. Without losing depth, this game offers a high gameplay speed. We enjoy the great level design, the subtle story and the city. The only issue we have encountered were frame rate drops and long loading times.

    Axiom Verge is a constant surprise to gamers. The surroundings are interesting and change often. The weapons and items are rewarded with perfect timing. It's brilliant.

    Metro Redux is a remake that’s better than all the others. Since the fact that a lot of people missed the game last generation around, it wasn’t the craziest of ideas to bring the games back. Both games have an original setting that resonate well with the player’s experience. The extra stuff 4A Games has put into the games, change the overall experience in such a profound way you almost forget that it’s ‘just’ a remake. Both fans and newcomers can’t go wrong with this impressive collection.

    The impressive GTA V has extra impact now that it has landed on next gen consoles. The locations in the game have always been eye candy and the visual upgrade offers even more depth. The first person mode is a spectacular addition.

    Mass Effect 2 is an awesome RPG set in an amazing universe. The story is compelling, the characters throughout the adventure come to life and every battle you encounter is a treat to play. It’s the adventure of a lifetime!

    Super Smash Bros. on Wii U is pure Nintendo magic and it is a lot better than its 3DS brother. The fighting system is challenging and for every element in this game there is a wide range of options. We would have liked a real single-player mode, but the multiplayer is so good: this is the Wii U game to get this season.

    NBA 2K13 has improved gameplay and more variations thanks to the trick stick. The amazing commentary and the atmosphere in the stadiums adds even more realism to the sport.

    Forza Horizon trades the serious character of the Motorsports series for a game that is literally a party. Thanks to the great festival music the atmosphere is better than ever, while still keeping the Forza gameplay intact. Embrace the many different terrains, secrets and a breathtaking world.

    Gears of War 2 is one big roller coaster ride full of impressive moments. When the ride ends, there’s still the vast array of multiplayer possibilities to be discovered. The core gameplay of Gears of War remains intact, and some minor bugs I encountered lower the score a little bit, but don’t let that keep you away of this shining masterpiece.

    Forza Horizon 2 repeats one word like a mantra: fun. The game doesn’t put you on the brakes and offers lots of cars and races that are totally doable for experienced drivers and newcomers alike. This is how a racer should be.

    TowerFall Ascension is a game in the purest form of the word. Easy to learn, hard to master. Everyone can jump in and everyone can enjoy themselves.
