    Dark Souls 2 is more and better. Enemies are smarter, and there's a wealth of bosses to find. Drangleic is an immense, beautiful world, amazing design, although it disappoints graphically. Fortunately there's so much content to discover that you'll hardly have time to occupy yourself with that.

    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!

    This is the best Mario Kart ever. It has only tweaked the original a little bit, but the game looks a lot better on Switch.

    With New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Mario goes back to his roots. The game is quite challenging, but never too difficult thanks to the new Super Guide option. However, it’s the brilliant multiplayer that makes NSMB Wii such a great game.

    Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time just works well in every way. The game makes good use of the Free to Play-model, with which you'll only pay for something to make it a bit easier for yourself. The game is just as enjoyable without spending a dime though.

    Rayman: Legends continues where its predecessors left off, and does so magically. The levels revolve around tempo and timing, are dynamic, keep renewing themselves and the difficulty level is slowly amped up throughout the game. And at the end of every setting, there’s a phenomenally good musical level. If you have the luxury of buying the Wii U version: do so. The Murphy levels make excellent use of the Gamepad.

    Blazblue is quite frankly the best 2D-fighting game of the moment!

    Yakuza 0 shows how unique Yakuza actually is. Drama and humor come together in a setting filled with violent street fights. We all know the concept, but Yakuza 0 takes it to perfection.

    Batman: Arkham Knight is a nearly perfect ending of an excellent series. The package feels complete with its interesting fighting system and many gadgets. The Batmobile and the strong story make things fresh and new, even though fights with the Batmobile could have been better. We hope Rocksteady is not done with the Dark Knight yet.

    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.

    NBA2K17 is a most impressive basketball game. A few minor tweaks in gameplay give the game a better flow, and there are way more options to play the game.

    Rise of Iron is the answer to the fans' calling for more content. It inspires gamers to play Destiny again, and all the downloadable content together make Destiny a game that is very much worth your time.

    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.

    For any gamer that views Ocarina of Time as the highlight of the franchise, Breath of the Wild is a very pleasant surprise. The innovations Nintendo offers are -nearly all- amazing and Hyrule is more appealing and grandiose than ever before.

    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.
