    Resistance 2 is a worthy successor. The single-player-campaign is action packed and the game contains more than enough different weapons, as we’ve come to expect from Insomniac. Resistance 2 lacks in the story department and is visually unimpressive, but makes up for it in terms of content. 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.

    N++
    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.

    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.

    After seven years of waiting Company of Heroes 2 doesn't disappoint. The great gameplay like we know it from he series, doesn't give way and only gets more intense thanks to the wintery weather and TrueSight. It's a shame though that the story lacks impact and the AI has a few hiccups. Still, Company of Heroes 2 is a fantastic game that guarantees more than enough strategic pleasure.

    Rock Band 2 is a great follow-up to an already good game. The improved track list and World Tour mode, and the implementation of some interesting new options make for a great sequel.

    Square Enix has been proving for years that the old Final Fantasy-games are timeless and legendary. The same goes for X and X-2. You don't need a dose of nostalgia to enjoy both games.

    Darksiders is a game with a number of different gameplay elements. We love the fighting and puzzles, but the pace of the game could have been a bit faster. Nevertheless, Darksiders is a great way to start off the new year.

    The Prince returns, and does so with a fresh new style, a phenomenal game world, and in stunning visual detail. The addition of Elika is a nice touch, but takes away some of the initial challenge in the game. The fact that you can’t die is a real shame, but the choreographical fighting mechanics keep the gameplay interesting and fun, and turn Prince of Persia into a small masterpiece.

    Thanks to The Taken King Destiny finally is the game we wanted during release. We'd almost call it Destiny 2.0. Bungie again makes a few confusing choices, but the game experience has definitely become a lot more accessible.

    Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time is a delicious platform game. The relationship of Ratchet and Clank delivers a great adventure and the split between the two friends gives a lot of variety in the levels. Off course the game looks amazing just like its predecessors and the humour never gets old. A Crack in Time is a moment of joy, that’s why its double that disappointing that the game is rather short.

    Monster Hunter Tri is the best game in the franchise. We love the underwater worlds and the game looks pretty good. It is also very good to see that Capcom dropped the annoying friendcodes, so that you can enjoy the online experience.

    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.

    Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes is possibly the best kept secret of 2010. The game offers fantastic strategic battles, combined with interesting puzzle elements. Because the battles are easy to learn, but quite difficult to master, strategy fans will love this game.

    It brings the three different play styles together effortlessly, without selling one short. By handing out points after a mission based on how you play it, you keep coming back to set a higher score. It’s a shame the story lacks depth and graphically the game can’t play with the big boys, but that doesn’t change the fact that you’ll get a lot of stealthy pleasure out of this game.

    Resident Evil 7 honors the classic survival elements, and yet it feels modern thanks to the first person perspective. During confrontations you do not fight, you run, as fast as possible. A tense game that guarantees goose bumps all over your body.

    Kingdom Hearts 2 is a classic but it is also the game that made the series a lot more complicated. We would've liked to get a recapitulation of the past parts, especially since Birth by Sleep and Re:Coded make things complex. But, besides that we have really enjoyed Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix with it's excellent quality and loads of content to enjoy.

    Strong gameplay and good visuals: the things that make NBA2K awesome, are still here. NBA 2K15 adds more gameplay modes and the MyCareer mode is more dynamic. Too bad the online servers are giving us such a hard time.

    It's not easy to give advice on this collection. Ezio still rocks, while Desmond's story is a bit disappointing. The controls are not as good as we would have liked.

    The addition of many new tools is a giant step forward for creative minds. The story mode is short but sweet and we had a good time exploring the new characters. Too bad the cute little friends seem to attract a lot of bugs.

    Tales from the Borderlands offers even more of that strong Borderlands-humor in this second episode. The characters get a bit more depth and we meet Handsome Jack, the bad guy. This is a must for Borderlands fans.
