    A faithful and perfect port, a beautiful journey again and anywhere. It sacrificed the multiplayer mode, but it is a delight in the OLED of Vita, very colorful and bright. The best game of the PSVita launch.

    It might seem that Alan Wake is essentially the same game that was released on Xbox 360 two years ago. Nothing could be further from the truth. Remedy has worked hard to adapt the psychological thriller to a platform that should never have waited so long. Better graphics, 3D support, and additional content including DLC. The only excuse for not buying Alan Wake for PC is that you already got bored of it on console. Even if so... you should give it a try.

    Chaos Rings II is an excelent J-RPG for iOS devices with nice mechanics and brilliant narrative; just the excesive price tag could be an impediment for many potential users.

    Angry Birds Space gives a fresh take to the franchise with excellent physics and lots of funny puzzle gameplay.

    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!

    Trials Evolution is one of the best Arcade Games this year. Better and bigger than its predecessor, has a simple but addictive gameplay and too much content to unlock. Good choice for a multiplayer matches.

    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!

    Despite some questionable decisions that have barely to do with the game itself, Diablo 3 is the best hack and slash dungeon crawler action game to date.

    Unique, different and original. Three elements that make Gravity Rush one of the best titles in the PS Vita library. Long, visually stunning and very, very fun to play, probably most gamers will spend hours just floating and rushing through the air feelin' free, instead of following the story of the game, just like playing GTA or a sandbox Spider-Man. A unique feeling that undoubtely deserves our attention.

    Tequila Works delivers a breathtaking adventure that mixtures the best elements that we've seen so far on Prince of Persia or Flashback on a 2D survival horror base. Although the main campaign lasts only five or six hours, there are plenty of reasons to enjoy the story of Rusell Wayne twice and explore this world to discover all of its secrets and enjoy its great atmosphere.

    Counter-Strike: it´s a classic and its formula has never grown tired. Global Offensive is a really good interpretation of that formula, more refined and better executed than CS: Source in its first days, so it's in an excellent position to reinvigorate the community around this seminal title.

    Mark of the Ninja is a superb take on what a stealth game should be in 2D, offering some lessons to the veterans of the genre. Its visuals and animations reinforce the idea of being a ninja, creating an unmatched spectacle of lights and shadows, while its gameplay offers a growing sense of freedom that rewards imaginative and experimental players. A great triumph for Klei and their best game by far.

    A flawless take on LittleBigPlanet on a system that looks especially well-suited for it. This version is faithful to the core of the LittleBigPlanet experience and manages to improve on other versions thanks to the great control system designed around Vita and novelties like the Memorizer that will add a new dimension to the creative work around this game.

    Borderlands 2 improves on all the elements that made the first one such a big surprise, offering a fun and complete package. Great for solo, absolutely fantastic in co-op.

    Torchlight II is exactly the game we expected when we finished with the first game. A quantitative and qualitative jump that will delight fans of the Hack'n Slash genre, with interesting classes, great co-op and a big adventure to experience and replay. Furthermore, it offers a fantastic value for its great price.

    An alien invasion is coming. We are in charge of XCOM, a military organization that will put end to this extraterrestrial assault. XCOM: Enemy Unknown offers a full package tactical turn-based strategy game, with tons of options for single-player which uses a mind-blowing squad customization system, and interesting modes in multiplayer. Old school meets new age.

    Just like a bed time story, The Unfinished Swan guides us into an experience so powerful yet delicate that is easy to be surprised every time we are in a new level. Visuals and score mixed together with core mechanics that change every chapter and deliver us one of the must have indies of the year, and a black & white prologue inked with golden touches that must be played to believe it.

    Criterion Games has developed the best arcade driving game of this generation. It is fun, fast, crazy and offers thousands of different options. One of the most remarkable aspects is the online mode up to 8 players in the same Fairhaven.

    Although some editions of Football Manager are defined by including improvements in dribs and drabs, this is not the case at hand. The new game cares for both traditional users and those who seek an experience equally comprehensive but willing to sacrifice some complexity in exchange for a faster management. Football Manager 2013 is a complete network of choices that allow us to simulate the most realistic behavior of clubs and competitions, ever seen. It should be mandatory for almost every football coach.

    Hitman Absolution is one of the best stealth games in last years. Great campaign, full of content and superb graphics in the return of Agent 47.

    One of the best conclusions that we've ever seen. This finale season is definitely a triumph of the interactive narrative, proof that with good writers and a solid direction, letting the player make decisions can make a good story better.

    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.

    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.

    A pure act of love. This is what Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Which is for both Studio Ghibli lovers and gamers who want to embrace again that old fashioned, classic spirit from the RPG genre of 16 and 32 Bit generations. The makers of Spirited Away and the creators of Dragon Quest VIII -Level 5- join forces in a visually constant Tour de Force that contains one of the best scores ever written for a videogame and a battle system that mixes turn-based with real time action. One true jewel of the PlayStation 3 library.

    BattleBlock Theater is like an HD version of the best Saturday-morning cartoon you can remember: hilarious, amazing in terms of visuals and also has one of the great co-op modes we've seen on Xbox Live Arcade. In short: Rayman Legends on acid, 'indie style'.

    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.

    Persona 4: Arena is one of the best fighting games in this generation. Great, original and depth combat mechanics, good offline modes and solid netcode for another hit by Atlus and Arc System Works. And gorgeous visuals.

    One of the best 2D platform games in the last years. Varied game, full of possibilities and long. Donkey Kong Country Returns has a polished gameplay and brilliant artistic designs in the return for the most famous virtual monkey, now in a great hand-held version.
