    Call of Pripyat is one of those game that people just seem to miss. It’s incredibly moody and an intents experience. S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat is what Shadow of Chernobyl should have been.

    Napoleon: Total War is what Empire: Total War should have been. The bugs and freezes are gone, the loading times are strongly improved and the battles are very entertaining.

    Pokémon HeartGold/ SoulSilver is very good remake of the best Pokémon-game ever and brings a superb adventure.

    Modnation Racers is the perfect party racer, with a lot of depth and a million customization options. The only bad thing about the game are the loading times, which are way to long.

    The Tomb of Sammun-Mak is a really fun episode. The switching between the movie reels adds an extra layer of depth to the puzzles and the story is a lot better than in the first episode. Sam & Max: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak gives promising prospect for the episodes to come.

    Civilization V: Gods and Kings has a serious price tag, but it does bring the Civilization veterans some great features. The addition of religion, espionage and new nations, gives Gods and Kings the well-known 'just one more turn'-feeling.

    Gravity Rush is unique in multiple ways. Playing with gravity takes a while to get used to, but thanks to the intuitive controls, the game soon plays like a dream. Together with the amazing visual style and great cut-scenes this makes Gravity Rush a true work of art.

    Tiny Wings 2 is a sequel by the book: the same formula, with a slightly different approach and some new elements.

    The Wii leaves the stage with a bang. Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise is a collection of rhythm games that make the most out of the two buttons of the Wii controller. Funny tunes that stay in your head and completely random rhythm games; we can't think of a better game to put a beat in our summer.

    The Ratchet and Clank Trilogy is a strong remake collection. All the titles in the pack have received a facelift and are still as much fun as they were back in the day. The games have a lot to offer with a lot of humour, ingenious weapons and futuristic gadgets and are as much fun for players wanting to relive the past as for gamers new to the series. The only slight downside is the simple multiplayer mode.

    Pokémon Conquest is a successful experiment. The game successfully approaches the age-old concept of Pokémon in a new and unique way. Even though the game may seem simple at first, it soon turns out to be a game for aspiring tactical minds.

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 goes for gold with golden themed levels that bring simple, yet fun platforming action. It's not a punishment to play levels over and over again, finding all the secrets or trying to set a new record in Coin Rush. The addition of a compelling cooperative multiplayer experience makes New Super Mario Bros. 2 the best side-scrolling Mario-game to date.

    Sound Shapes is a game you simply have to play to find out how good it really is. You can easily play a single number, but the game is also well suited for long play sessions filled with synergy between the music and the 2D platforming. The campaign may be a little short and the Death Mode is simply unfair, but the simple yet complete level editor makes up for this.

    Harmonix proves rhythm games are still as alive as ever; it just lacked some creativity these last couple of years. Rock Band Blitz might start of slow, but this is soon compensated by the fresh outlook the game gives on music games.

    Rayman Jungle Run isn't a very challenging game, but before you know it you're addicted to our running limbless friend. The levels are short but addictive and the graphics are straight out of Rayman Origins, which make it look fantastic on a tablet.

    Are Pokémon Black and White 2 just as impressive as other Pokémon games? No. Can you enjoy the games just as much as any other Pokémon game? Yes! Pokémon Black and White 2 are refined versions of the first Pokémon Black and White games that offers enough new content to keep you entertained for forty, sixty or even a hundred hours of Pokéfun. Just don't expect any revolutionary changes.

    Sony managed to rewrite the manual for party brawlers and has, despite minor faults, delivered a great fighting game. The super system works well and feels refreshing. With beautiful environments and unique fighting styles Battle Royale will entertain you for quite a while.

    More a game than ever. The dressed down Classic Mode and the playful challenges give the series a nice refresher, without losing the most important Football Manager qualities: depth and size.

    By giving each car its separate missions, Need for Speed: Most Wanted introduces a fresh new way to experience open world racers. You will be pushed to use new vehicles, though it is a shame that unlocked upgrades are somewhat useless because of this.

    Halo 4 is a game with two sides. On the one hand 343 Studios hasn't managed to create a single player experience with a great story. And on top of that the musical presentation isn't what you'd expect it to be. The true magic of the game is to be found in the multiplayer mode. Through subtle changes, constant rewards through the Ordnance system and new gear, the multiplayer keeps you enthralled throughout. And should you be done with it, then there's still Spartan Ops.

    Despite a weak storyline, the new story mode makes Dance Central 3 more fun to play by yourself, although experienced dancers probably won't even touch the mode. The formula still stands firm, even recurring small irritations can't change that. Add the great Crew Throwdown mode for eight players to the mix and it's clear Dance Central has once again raised the bar.

    Hitman: Absolution reaches out to a broader audience with some new features, but manages to stay true to its nature. Some new features, like badly placed checkpoints and mission structure, sometimes ruin the game, but the mission offers an amazing amount of killing options you'll be surprised in a positive way more often than in a negative.

    ZombiU is by far the most intense game we've played this year. Dead means dead and you can kiss that valuable crossbow or shotgun goodbye when a zombie sinks its teeth into you. ZombiU manages to trigger a primal instinct: survival. Assessing the situation, avoiding conflict at times and especially not doing rash or stupid things. ZombiU brings the zombie apocalypse into your living room in a way we haven't seen before.

    Mass Effect 3 Special Edition for the Wii U is a good game. The Mass Effect 3 experience was kept intact, but the new functionalities offered by the Wii U aren't anything special.

    An excellent modern playground. Not only is it a beauty to behold, it is also a pleasure to play. The capabilities of the nano suit can be used to its fullest in the giant playgrounds of the game. A game of hide and seek or tag has never been this sadistic. No other game offers the superhuman fun Crysis 3 offers.

    Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is ideal for Wii U-owners who are up for a challenge in which they can easily lose dozens of hours. The game doesn’t look exceptionally well, but the strong use of Gamepad, the improved controls and the prospect of Capcom supporting the game with extra challenges and missions, make this final version of Monster Hunter 3 an excellent game.
