    Peace Walker's one of the best games for PSP that we've tried this year, probably the best MGS that Kojima's made so far for a handheld platform. It tells the story of Big Boss, ten years later after the incidents with his mentor, which he killed in an epic battle. Now, with the aggravation of a war conflict between the CIA and the KGB, he listens her voice again on a cassette tape, and thus accepting the mission of aiding Paz Andrade and friends. Co-Op options, new Mother Base implementation... Peace Walker aims to the top of PSP catalog, and makes it even further.

    Just like when we were kids, Botanicula takes a tiny, simple element and creates an astonishing world of sounds and visuals so captivating, haunting, dazzling and spectacular that makes this last masterpiece of Amanita Desing a playable jewel full of smiles, laughs and tenderizing moments. Undoubtely, one of the most precious games of the year. And one of the funniest graphic adventures too!

    World of Goo is a revolutionary and independent game that uses creativity to take advantage of the physics engine. A stunning, beatutiful title that will allow you to experience the true power behind the most elastic creatures ever seen in the videogame industry.

    Super Street Fighter IV surpasses the level we saw in the original revival during last season. With more characters, more Ultras, new modes, classic bonus stages, remixed OST and a great online on the table, without any doubt, Capcom has created the best fighting game in this generation.

    Hotlime Miami 2: Wrong Number offers what is needed if you loved the first episode. Incorrect, violent, crazy and extremely difficult. Not suitable for all kind of gamers, but perfect for you if you are looking for a sweet frustrating experience.

    A new entry on the series, a new success. The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo's greatest franchises, and there's no doubt that it deserves it; Spirit Tracks is a huge game, beautiful, with an incredible cooperative gameplay and many things to do.

    Fez
    FEZ is not just a nostalgia exercise, or a 2D platformer, or an attempt of trying to bring back the glorious 8-Bit pixelated days, no. FEZ is simply an astonishing game, a playable experience no one calling himself a gamer should miss. And truly a brain-teaser at its highest level, too!

    Luigi's Mansion 2 is a great game that has solid gameplay with well-designed levels. Looks good, plays better and improves so many elements of its predecessor.

    Dark Souls is an Action RPG following the unique gameplay legacy of Demon's Soul. The original online system comes back with a deeper world and more effective mechanics... in one of the most difficult games in this generation. You will love dying. Once again.

    Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is just one of the best games for the PSP, with a great and long storyline, the best battle system of all Kingdom Hearts games to date and three fantastic new main characters. Don't worry about the subtitle: this is the Kingdom Hearts III you've been waiting for.

    Molyneux invites us to the fantasy world of Albion. It's a beautiful story where we have all the freedom to live our live as we want. Good or evil? Hero or villain? Family head or silent assassins? It's all up to us. Excellent presentation, good graphics, great combat system and many surprises in one of the best games of this year.

    Splosion Man has the graphics, the humour, the sound and the joy to become one of the greatest arcades of this summer. The latest work from Twisted Pixel is one of the most innovating games of this generation, a mixture between action and puzzle that slowly makes his way to the top in an incredible show of originality and wisdom. Despite some minor unattended matters, this is a very good chance to enjoy a good game without wasting a pence.

    A remake should be something that improves what can be improved while not touching the soul of the original game, and New'n Tasty accomplishes this with high marks.

    Football Manager is growing every year, and this edition won't be an exception. The game focuses on finding an interaction increasingly realistic and it extends that to our dealings with the club Directive... although the match engine is still not at the level of the rest of the game and interaction with the players on the field is very far from the interaction outside it. A game mandatory for all football lovers who really want to test their knowledge of the sport. Seems very simple when discussing at the pub.

    More than a decade has passed since we listen for first time those four words, "listen to my story". A lot has passed, an change in the RPG genre. But with these HD versions, one can travel through time and doesn't live the High Definition visual style at the same time. Final Fantasy X is still an astonishing role playing game, with a great battle system, dramatic story and iconic characters. FF X-2 maybe is a step down, or a change of direction, but it's still a great game since its battle system point and a curiosity that a true Final fan must try, at least once in a lifetime. The most complete versions of two examples of how high and great the Japan RPG was one, full of nostalgia in every polygon now in HD.

    Child of Light is a big surprise. The UbiArt Framework draws a fantastic world and it writes a new epic poem in 2D RPG. Princess Aurora and her light are ready for you to remember them.

    Guybrush Theepwood strikes back in the remake of his best adventure so far. Also, Lechuck's Revenge is one of the best of his genre. A great adventure game and a fantastic remake.

    With great visuals and intense heart-pounding gameplay, completed with a replayable Campaign mode and a solid Multiplayer offering that fans of the saga (and gamers who look for a great FPS experience) will love, Resistance 3 turns into the best game in the series so far, making it an epic conclusion to Insomniac's and PlayStation 3's exclusive trilogy.

    Deathwing is back, and his emergence on the world of Azeroth has been plunged into a devastating cataclysm. However, the fate that we have is that with all this destruction comes the best expansion appeared to date for the MMORPG market leader.

    Awakening is from far the best Fire Emblem experience to be found on a handheld. It's the most beautiful and yet accessible strategic game we've seen lately, and with a bunch of new additions to its gameplay mechanics it's difficult no to fall to its charms.

    Crytek has created an excellent game, with strong combat, many possibilities and enough freedom to satisfy every shooter lover out there. It has flaws, but it overcomes them easily thanks to the great graphics and strong gameplay that make Crysis 2 a great FPS.

    Shulk's journey begins in your New Nintendo 3DS at the same excellent level as Wii. Xenoblade Chronicles 3D is a perfect adaptation for one of the best JRPGs of recent years. It has spectacular graphics and sound on portable console. The Monado Sword hacks again this special and open adventure.

    Miasmata suggests a different, intense and exciting experience. It makes an audacious bet with content strange to many, and which may pose doubts once we know its elements. The fears can continue during the early minutes of the game when one does not have a clear idea which objective is addressed... and are cleared fast when producing "the connection" with the protagonist. As the player happens to become Robert Hughes, Miasmata will make ours the emotions and doubts of the scientist, and his goal will become our target. Bob and Joe Johnson have managed to create a title capable of changing our idea of how to beat the game, for a constant desire to know more, to go forward and solve the mystery.

    Mario doesn't want to change what works. The GamePad gets an episode that continues all, also the fun. High Definition to support the color and the design, with many challenges ahead for up to 5 players.
