    Patently unterrifying, Dead Space 2 is nonetheless a feat of paradigm-splicing worthy of Frankenstein himself. The scars of creation are visible on its flanks, repurposed muscles and organs bulging through the skin, but somehow everything works in harmony. All told, Isaac Clarke can do without his day job.

    Black Ops reveals a franchise travelling in two directions at once, simultaneously more relevant than ever and among the most redundant of shooters.

    It's taken multiple console generations, various rebuilds of Sonic Team and more miserably failed experiments than Eggman's R&D department, but it's finally here: a Sonic game worthy of genuine praise.

    Bloodshot is a very solid title with excellent visuals, engrossing sound, engaging forensics, and intense hand to hand combat.

    In a generation where Nintendo seem ever-more preoccupied with hardware innovation and its expanded audience, Retro's dependable high-quality output bodes well for the future.

    Saints Row 2 is to GTA IV what egg and chips is to a Michelin-starred meal - no substitute, but still a salivating prospect. Worth your time and money.

    The game looks absolutely gorgeous with fantastic sounds, and highly addictive gameplay. It may be a tough sell to casual gamers due to its length and high degree of challenge, and to that we say try the free trial before you buy.

    At worst, this is one of the best rental options this year. It doesn't have the depth or longevity of the big simulation racers but for sheer hair-raising off road action, a new franchise is born.

    It may not stray far from its roots, but thanks to a cornucopia of on and offline treats Rare's one-of-a-kind garden sim gets our recommendation once again.

    Whether you're watching them hurtle along in the embrace of a rainbow wind, or guiding them through the intestines of a giant penguin, the squishy, smiling LocoRoco are as charming as they've ever been.

    Broader, lusher and better defined than its predecessor, but in reality more of an expansion pack than a sequel - as the subtitle implies.

    Staunchly challenging, yet incredibly rewarding, Dragon Rising might deter some due to its unremitting devotion to realism, while upsetting others with its co$nsole-friendly tweaks.

    With its fixed inventories, imposing but predictable level and boss design, and occasionally wooden controls, this tweaked, tropical, co-operative remix of Resident Evil 4 is a game you'll either love or hate. We choose the former.

    Blood Curse may lurk within the shadows of convention, but those shadows have seldom seemed more oppressive. And damn good value for money, too.

    Red Steel 2 is complex without being incoherent, innovative without being off-putting, and one of the finest brawlers we've played full stop.

    Dead Rising 2 is a serviceable follow-up, and another unique addition to the ranks of zombie bashers. Its uniqueness is of the rough-and-ready variety, however, sparked by colliding clichés, and for all Fortune City's lashings of sugar, glitter and grey matter, many will find that unevenness hard to bear. Recommended, but watch your step.

    If you are the kind of beat ‘em up fanatic that has regular access to like-minded individuals for local bouts, Tekken 6’s deeply rewarding gameplay and overflowing character roster will provide endless hours of entertainment, in the same way previous iterations have – This is after all what competitive fighting games are all about and Tekken 6 is one of the best.

    Jack Black and Tim Curry hold the wonderfully delivered if slightly predictable story together until its conclusion, though at only eight hours or so it’s left to the unexpectedly interesting multiplayer to add longevity rather than the repetitive side-missions and fetch-quests.

    A good title, but not great.

    Demon's Souls is undoubtedly a tough nut to crack, but if you're prepared to dig beneath its hard shell, you'll find a game that is compelling and deeply rewarding in equal measure.

    Who's That Flying?! zests up an arcade formula so familiar we practically have it etched across the insides of our eyelids, and it doesn't make you pay through the nose for the privilege.

    A gleeful, gaudy soup of physics sandbox, vehicle creator and action adventure.

    Even though there are flaws in the game and there could be more variety in its offerings, I enjoyed the online play so much that I only grudgingly played through the singleplayer mode.

    Spirit Tracks is still such a polished and wonderful game that its faults are only relative to other entries in the series and is therefore still better than 99% of all handheld games out there.

    Faster, tighter, better balanced and - astonishingly - even glossier than its older brother. The career mode still needs work, the AI could be sharper and offline punch-spammers have it a little too easy, but otherwise this game is every inch the champ.

    Slightly Mad has thrown away the novelty numberplate, lowered the chassis and tightened the wheel nuts, among other such intelligent-sounding automotive expressions. Forza and GRID still have the edge in terms of raw playability, but EA’s old roadster is closing the distance.

    Yes, Blur has borrowed ideas, but it has assembled them with great care, expanding and improving on them in many cases.

    Lost Planet 2 is a mongrel of a shooter – huge, vivid, intricate, feature-heavy, unfailingly cheesy and, at times, a bit broken.
