    If you're a fan of either Metallica or Guitar Hero, this is a must have gaming and music experience. There are 49 songs to play in the package and all of them works great on any of the supported instruments. Great music, presentation and atmosphere makes this one of the best rhythm game experiences available on the market.

    A full packed version of the epic space RPG. The interactive comic that sums up Mass Effect is well made and the same goes for the port in general. A must if you haven't already played it.

    It’s just hard to grasp how Telltale manages to do it. Because in record time they have a game that seems if not more promising than The Walking Dead. The Wolf Among Us is a dark mystery with well-written dialogue and fantastic characters. It is game that shouldn’t be missed by anyone.

    Hotline Miami is ludological entertainment at its finest. It is a game about grinding levels and that practice makes perfect. It is also a game about exploring new narratives and discussing the video game worlds fascination with violence and gore. A must play.

    Little Big Planet could very well be a modern classic. Relying heavily on user content this game will only grow in splendor with time. The game does hold it's own though with great levels, beautiful graphics and fantastic four player co-op. A somewhat unrealised potential with regards to the controls and movement of charaters is the only thing standing in the way of a perfect score.

    This is in every way an epic strategy game. With great music, graphics and structure this game perfectly frames one of the most interesting eras in history. If you're in any way interested in going in depth with either land or naval warfare, this is a must have. This is quite simply a massive buffet of warfare fan service where every plate is nothing short of delicious.

    This is one quirky combination of a rhythm and strategy based game that is sure to test your patience. In order for you to truly appreciate the finer parts of the experience it helps if you normally appreciate really fine grained micromanagement of a typical Japanese flavor. You also need to be able to enjoy and handle the rhythm based gameplay. This might be too much of a niche experience for some, but for those who can appreciate the formula this is one fantastic title.

    Rock Band 3 is an excellent game and it's a great iniciative by Harmonix to try learning us how to play a real instrument. The familiar Rock Band formula is there, but some new changes to the franchise really spice things up. It's probably the best music game on the market.

    By taking a step away from hours of cutscenes and codec conversation, and instead focusing on pure gameplay, Metal Gear Solid V is an unfamiliar but ultimately great and lengthy experience. It would have been nice with some more time spent on the characters and story, but it is a fair compromise with the new open world direction. Metal Gear Solid V is a great evolution for the series and it is a shame that the new direction will not reach its full potential due to Konami's probable withdrawal from the console world.

    Battlefield: Bad Company is an attempt to lure the Battlefield-audience to the consoles, and it's one fine attempt. The qualitative and humorous single player campaign is a fun experience that introduces the player to the gameplay in a great way. The real blockbuster feature here is the online mode which is jam packed with great features and modes, all of which are greatly enhanced by the destructible environments. All in all, this is one great experience.

    Frictional Games delivers yet another great horror game. On top of the scary monsters and scream-out-loud-moments we’re accustomed to it’s also a deep journey into both the protagonists and the players mind, with many philosophical and moral questions that both frightens and fascinates.

    It's a bit disappointing that the remake of Tomb Raider could not deliver any new content of value, but the graphics and next-gen effects are eye candy that is more than welcome. This is not enough for the already saved to buy Lara Croft's latest adventure again, but the game is still a shining example of an entertaining action adventure that should be experienced.

    Peace Walker is a fantastic addition to the franchise, so great that it's almost a shame that Kojima Productions didn't decide to name the game Metal Gear Solid 5. It's just that good and not being a proper numbered sequel might rob this game of the attention it so justly deserves. If you love the Metal Gear Series, do yourself a favour and buy this game.

    The Nathan Drake Collection is an ambitious collection, that includes three of the best action adventure games from the last generation. What makes the collection better than the average remaster is the improvements, that the developer Blueprint have added. The graphics are almost as good as many of the games today, and the controls have gotten an improvement.

    It is filled with so much polished content that it is close to being ridiculous. The enormous amount of cars and tracks together with improved community, painting and tuning features this came can be played for months. With superior physics and a realistic handling together with a large amount of adjustable options to fit each and every person makes Forza 3 a game that contains everything. The only thing missing is that little extra touch that would make it feel more than very good.

    With Volume Mike Bithell has managed to create a finely tuned mix of stealth and action gameplay that continues to impress all the way through. Just like in his last game Thomas Was Alone the gameplay in Volume isn't overly complicated but it's backed up by a great story. Overall it's a great experience and one of the best in its genre.

    Super Street Fighter IV is an excellent addition to the original game. Capcom’s tradition of improving their bestsellers once again pays off with this massive expansion featuring plenty of new characters, maps and a much more inviting online mode. Street Fighter IV, the greatest fighting game of this generation, just got even better.

    Bad Company 2 is a great sequel in every way. While improved compared to the first game the campaign mode still only offers a fleeting chunk of entertainment that serves as an appetizer for the online multiplayer mode where DICE, as usual, shine. While your ability to choose different settings for online battles are somewhat limited the actual matches are fun, intense and offer great improvement for the squad based experience.

    On the surface you might get the impression that little has changed between the second and third installment of EA's life simulator, but when you delve deeper into the experience you'll find a game that offers you more unique characters, an increased ability to participate in social activities outside of the confines of the house and less focus on tedious daily chores. For the first time your sim and the world surrounding him/her feels truly unique. As per usual you only get the basic features in the package, leaving an almost clean slate ready for future expansions. Nevertheless, EA's done it again and you'll find countless hours of great fun here.

    Level 5's highly anticipated collaboration with Studio Ghibli is just as great as it looks. And it looks great. The art style is exactly what you'd expect from Studio Ghibli, and the same goes for the music. Battles are fought with familiars, that you collect and train throughout the game. It's not a revolution, but it does almost everything right.

    Don’t get scared off by the simple graphics. This is a brilliant game. The news from the DS version is few but it feels as a full sized GTA game. The story, the car chases, the missions and the characters are all there to make it yet another brilliant chapter in the GTA saga.

    The follow-up to one of last year's best games is an enchanted version of the same masterpiece. Battles are more expansive and go way deeper than before. The higher difficulty levels alongside the Iron Man Mode gives the gameplay an incredible nerve and challenge. Xcom Enemy Within might as well also be one of this years best games.

    Despite a questionable predecessor and a somewhat rushed release in time for Christmas, Bioware has managed to create a fantastic adventure that easily ranks among the best games of the year.

    Flower can be seen as a statement about society versus nature, to be interpreted by the player as he or she wishes. To be specific it's a game where you fly a leaf from a flower through nature, in the process gathering other leaves. As time goes by your entourage of leaves grow in size and before you know it you've got enough to bring life back to the previously barren fields. Flower is as much of a meditative experience as it is a beautiful piece of art. A subjective experience as this is hard to grade, but a great experience it is if you're susceptible.

    The first two entries in the Metroid Prime saga proved to naysayers that bringing the Metroid franchise to life in the third dimension was possible, and in doing so developer Retro Studios created the best action adventures to grace the now defunct Gamecube. The third and final installment in the series threw Wii motion controls into the mix. With Metroid Prime Trilogy we're offered the definite version of the series where all three titles now boast Wii controls, 480p resolution and widescreen support. You won't get more bang for your buck on the Wii than this.

    Much is the same in A Link Between Worlds. Just like in A Link to the Past you follow Link from a birds-eye perspective in both light and dark worlds. But A Link Between Worlds is not merely a simple game of nostalgia but one that perfectly blends the new and old Zelda games. The result is one of the best games in the series.

    With an updated version of the original game and all the content from the Reaper of Souls expansion, Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition is a great experience that will keep you entertained for hours.

    The second expansion to the gargantuan behemoth of a game that is World of Warcraft, titled Wrath of the Lich King, sets you on the quest to defeat the evil Lich King Arthas. The presentation has been improved and the overall design of the new continent Northrend is nothing short of impressive. A lot of the caveats found in World of Warcraft, and the expansion The Burning Crusade, have been removed. The only major issue is that it feels as though World of Warcraft is becoming a tad bit too easy, but nevertheless this is a fantastic expansion and a must for gamers everywhere.

    What visual novel Steins;Gate lacks in gameplay it certainly makes up for with one of the best, most complex and most touching stories I have experienced in video games. It centers around a few youths in Tokyo who accidentally invents a machine that can send messages back in time. The mix of science fiction and drama is further lifted by its memorable characters, in part thanks to good Japanese voice actors. On the negative side, the rare parts of interaction among all text boxes feel a bit illogical at times, some of the characters are less memorable and there is a little bit of unnecessary fan service. These things will hardly be on the mind of anyone getting into the story though.

    The second installment in the hard rocking franchise may seem familiar at first, but the fact is that there are several minor and major additions here that do a lot to improve the overall experience. You can now play the campaign online and there is a new training mode for all of us that are struggling with learning the drums. There are 84 new songs to rock out to and an additional 20 to download for free. This is in fact a buy even for those who bough the first Rock Band, and for those who own neither it's a must have.

    Abe's adventure is better than ever in this remake of the Playstation-classic from 1997. The charm from the original remains intact even though the game has taken a huge technical leap from 2D into a 3D-plattformer with beautiful graphics. Unfortunately the controls feel rather outdated at times but at the end of the day this slight problem is nothing that ruins Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty from being a brilliant remake of an instant classic.

    Much like its predecessors in many ways, but bigger and more varied. The multiplayer mode got new kill streaks, new objectives and an extreme number of unlockable content.

    Ikaruga is one of the most challenging, fun and addictive vertical shooters out there, and the latest platform to be graced by this title is Xbox Live.

    Think of it as Mario Kart with tricks and lots of weapons. It's a bit slow and the tracks aren't that great but there's a lot of fun game modes and in the end it's an excellent party family game. Avalanche is Disney's best friend.

    Gunman Clive 2 is a traditional sequel. As with its predecessor, the stages are short, but intense. The graphics uses more color, but the platforming has also changed properly. Traces of both Super Mario Galaxy and Uncharted are able to spot. With just a little more experimenting could Gunman Clive 2 have been an unforgettable gem.

    The 2009 edition of Football Manager is yet another solid title in the series. Having to interface with mass media is a welcome addition, as is the new streamlined interface, improved playability and the new 3D engine for match presentations. Even though all these additions are welcome they are also in need of some extra levels of polish, but put these flaws aside and you've got a great footy manager title.

    Tiny Tower might look and play like a Facebook game but it doesn't demand much from the player and all investments are really optional. There's a nice feel good vibe to building your tower and I keep wanting to build another floor.

    The Escapists is a game that demands quite a lot of the player, but when you have learned the basic mechanics it feels really awarding. Easily one of the deepest most interesting games you will play this year.

    The addition of gunpowder brings a whole new layer of strategic complexity to the battlefield. An expansion pack that manages to improve upon an already great game.

    Apotheon includes all the ingredients for a great adventure in a true metroidvania-spirit. The theme of Greek mythology is rare in games, still it fits pretty good. The controls and the game mechanics is sometimes a bit complicated but offers at the same time rich variety. Probably the best metroidvania this year.
