    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.

    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.

    I really enjoyed playing Left 4 Dead, and will continue to do so for many more hours. My only complaint is the slight lack of content and different gaming modes. The AI controller guarantees a certain level of variation in gameplay, but the playable levels and types of enemies remain the same. Content wise the game would score an 8, but Left 4 Dead packs enough fun to raise that score half a point.

    Luigi’s Mansion 2 is a special and well rounded adventure that delivers on graphics, atmosphere and humor. A good, eerie game with a cheerful tone. Great for cowards… but also challenging enough for the tougher gamer.

    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.

    It is really hard not to fall in love with Unravel. The atmospheric, beautiful world is the perfect setting for an emotional story. There are a few hiccups when it comes to gameplay, but thanks to the quality of the adventure that is hardly noticeable.

    Grid 2 is a fantastic racing game in which you'll have to fight for a decent classification. There's no 'perfect line'-crap, but purely the battle. Because of this, a victory really feels like a victory. There's enough variation to keep you going, but the career mode seems a bit bleak. Because of that, it barely misses out on a 9 or higher.

    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.

    Reaper of souls is the perfect addition to Diablo 3 with loot 2.0. Loot feels less crappy, the Crusader is an interesting class – aside from the story – Act V is a pleasant experience. The strongest addition is the Adventure Mode though, that offers a whole new way to play.

    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.

    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.

    Blizzard shows with Diablo III that they know how to create a console game. With a few good improvements and additions, we’ll let the few slip-ups slip by. Diablo III on consoles is better than the PC-version in pretty much every way.

    We might be a bit sick and tired of all the videogame remasters, but Borderlands: The Handsome Collection awakens us. The huge amount of content, the updated visuals and the option to play together with three of your friends are all great add-ons to an already awesome videogame. The only downside to this collection is the technical imperfection, especially within the Pre-Sequel.

    The single player is quite varied when it comes to weapons, levels and gameplay elements. The OWL also offers players a few interesting tactical choices, which make certain sections of the game highly replayable. Top that off with some great visuals and a high framerate, and we’ve got ourselves a great shooter that’s worth buying for the single player alone.

    Super Street Fighter IV brings more, but not enough to justify the game if you already own Street Fighter IV.

    It takes a little time to get used to (especially the controls), but thanks to Tech Web and the Affinities this is an awesome Civilization game. It is unpredictable, it looks great and there is a lot of freedom to do your own thing.

    ​343 Industries shows that it is not shy of renewing a franchise so familiar. Especially with Arena, it shows how much quicker and more precise Halo 5 feels. Thanks to the perfect combination of shooting, hitting and throwing grenades, it is still exactly what we have loved about this franchise over the last 15 years.

    For only five euros you can buy Pony Island, an adventure that will keep you stuck to your PC for about four hours. That is all you need to know about Pony Island.

    Anno 1404 is a terrific game and will keep you entertained for a long time. It gives the player challenges after challenges, and you won't get easily bored. It also looks really good. The only downside is the lack of strategic elements.

    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.

    The Wind Waker HD is a fantastic remake. Lovers of the original can enjoy the visuals and improved gameplay to their hearts content, including the extra tough Hero Mode. New players can get ready for an amazing adventure that they'll cherish for a long while after playing.

    The Witcher 3 is much more sloppy and than expected, and the graphic quality of the Northern Kingdoms is a disappointment. However, the game is still so good that we accept these issues. This fantasy world is great, offers plenty of detail and keeps pulling you back in.

    OlliOlli is about a flow; a balance between fun and challenge, in which rhythm and skills are crucial. The game does this in such a convincing manner, that you’ll gladly return for daily grinds, even if it is just to reach that top 100.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a history lesson as you have not experienced it, ever. The story is full of touching moments, small pieces of joy and at the same time it shows the horrific impacts of war. The gameplay remains varied, although the puzzles are a bit repetitive.

    Shadow of Mordor is the best Lord of the Rings-game ever, maybe because it ignores so many of Tolkien's written rules. Thanks to the fantastic Nemesis-system and the familiar feeling of climbing and fighting, this game knows how to avoid the curse of bad licensed games.

    Everything that had made World of Warcraft ​​a success can be found in Wildstar as well. Fortunately, the game - thanks to its cartoonish sci-fi western appearance, active combat system and humor - has its own identity. For newcomers to the genre Wildstar is ideal, but for MMO veterans Wildstar has plenty to offer too.

    Shovel Knight is a game that could have been released in the NES era. The best elements of the games of the past and the innovations that come from the games of today are combined brilliantly. The game may perhaps be over too soon, but Shovel Knight does not take a cheap route to your your nostalgic feelings, and goes one step further by being a great stand-alone platformer.

    Grid Autosport is a fine racing game with enjoyable driving experience, a lot of variety in types of (race) cars and an extensive online multiplayer mode. We can forgive the fact that the game doesn't look good in every respect: it has no negative influence on the experience of racing. By far the most impressive thing about the game is the AI, that asks everything of you to win races, again and again.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider is most impressive in its action-packed scenes, but also trying to figure out puzzles in the many tombs are fun. You and Lara embark on a true adventure together, it is too bad this adventure is not told in the best storytelling out there.
