    EVOLVE is a great first blood in what seems like a long-term hunt for 2K and Turtle Rock. Great ideas, good execution, fun online moments and tactical team work to face the monster shine, but they are dinged by some progression decisions, AI flaws when played solo, the need or some balance adjustments, and especially a lack of more content in the release. But this won't ruin what it is definitely happy hunting after all.

    Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games is finally here with a bunch of new gameplay modes, a quite impressive graphic engine but lacking an online feature. It still has some issues in the controls but it's definitely a better game than the original one. A must-have if you're looking to have some fun with a couple friends.

    Kirby: Mass Attack has very good and innovative ideas. With a full touch control and a lot of levels, the gameplay is very satisfying although many parts fail because they are slow. Colour, fun and extra mini-games in the last great work of the pink character for Nintendo DS.

    While its Flash origins are noticeable, the work with the conversion to PS3 game is remarkable. Rocketbirds is a solid 2D action full of good touches, which offers good audiovisual quality, great variety, cool story and plenty of content between the main and the cooperative campaigns.

    Awesome visuals and simple but effective combat mechanics for a game that impresses with its gigantic bosses.

    Resident Evil 5 is a great game without any doubt. With a new storyline, it offers fans of the series the epic end of the Umbrella arc that they were hoping for. Great visuals and many extras, but the use of RE4's control scheme feels old, and doesn't work too well to this new 100% action style the game embraced instead Survival Horror. You would expect something better from Capcom nowadays.

    Instead of delivering a mixed experience between two different gameplay styles, Layton vs Ace Attorney feels as if Capcom and Level-5 had left something on their way to 3DS. The storyline is fun and entertaining and the old-school gameplay works just fine, but we hoped to find something beyond the classical Layton/Ace Attorney experience, that is: a brand new title with the best of both worlds.

    Valkyrie Drive Bhikkuni is an interesting alternative to “Senran Kagura” titles for the PlayStation Vita. Its battle system makes a step forward to a stylish and addicting gameplay which added to its additional game modes and contents makes it a complete title, leaving the fan service aside.

    Sonic runs at full speed, now in airplanes and boats. Many different circuits and many memories can be found in this second Mario Kart from Sega. Jet Set Radio, Panzer Dragoon, Golden Axe, Samba de Amigo... a great game with a deep sense nostalgia and a nice multiplayer.

    Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days is a great action game, with some original ideas that make up for one of the greatest action games thus far this year. We get the complete package: Great coop and competitive game modes, compelling gameplay and story, good visuals and a couple of charming characters.

    Lost Planet 2 is one of the best co-op that we have seen. It has the same AI problems that we saw in its first part... but its great multiplayer doesn't need it.

    Final Fantasy XIII-2 was a good game in 2012 and it's, still, a cool JRPG to play on the PC. Even if the port to computers is not perfect, it's still a nice option to introduce yourself into the Lightning trilogy and enjoy the funniest and smart entry of the trilogy.

    WWE is back with all the heat of its fights. The third entry in this-gen consoles is full of energy, an incredible array of game modes, good visuals and great gameplay. A great choice for WWE lovers, but not suitable for everyone.

    Cities: Skylines is a really interesting alternative within a fairly consolidated genre. Colossal Orders presents a nice game after the nonsense of some recent attempts by other companies. It has some character and dares to show some original ideas without departing from the standardized gameplay mechanics. If you were waiting for a good city management game just take a look to this interesting project. It's still capable of many surprises if it finally gets supported by a community of creative and proactive users.

    EA Sports MMA is its first installment in the Mixed Martial Arts genre, and it becomes a worthy rival to THQ's UFC franchise.

    Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition has tons of new mechanics with its new characters. Classic hack and slash gameplay, smooth visuals and great challenges in terms of difficulty.

    In its latest adaptation of the beat 'em up series, Soulcalibur is still on the verge. This handheld adaptation of SCIV is probably one of the best games in the genre, and also a very good example of the real potential of PlayStation Portable. You'll probably like or dislike the gameplay system, but it's impossible bot being impressed with the graphic engine after a few battles. Another must-have, the second on this console in just one week.

    Transformers Devastation is exactly what can we expect from one Transformers game in the hands of Platinum Games. Frantic, fun and nostalgic.

    The original Adventure of the Belmont's family is back as a brand-new M2 production. We'll find very much the same as in the first Castlevania games that we played two decades ago: plenty of jumps, enemies and a deep and well obtained feeling of isolation underneath the eyes of Dracula. If you're a fan of the series, go for it. If you're not, here you have a good reason to try with something different. It's not flawless but it's worth the look.

    UFC 2009 Undisputed offers a great game dynamics, with great visuals, an amazing combat system, and many game modes. A great game, but it's too hard to master and, due to the competition itself, it's a game just for hardcore fans.

    Sam & Max's third season is about to end, and offers us an episode with many answers to the questions posed during the series. A very fun adventure, with much dark humour, and with an ending that will delight every fan out there.

    Good adventure, with multiple options and great technical job. Enslaved has some problems, like the simple system combat or the poor plataforms.

    Yakuza 4 is based on an excellent core from previous installments of the franchise. In fact, there are no significant changes to the gameplay, and the focus of SEGA was in the story elements. The idea of introducing four different characters gives the plot a variety of situation and allow us to know what's happening from several point of views. As it was divided into several acts, the game manages to avoid boring us after a few hours, and taking into account its length, that's a good thing. Sadly, the great scenario situated in the red district of Tokyo becomes rubbish when we progress and discover, again, that there is no realism at all and we are playing and absurd tale. At least, there are no zombies... yet.

    Gameloft shows us why this kind of classic games never dies. Extremely funny, with a perfect design and nice additions like the multiplayer support, this is a must have if you like the classic action platform games.

    NES Remix 2 is another classic easy to learn but challenging to finish. Better game selection with some of the best NES games. However, isn't better in terms of minigames.

    The same game with better graphics. Star Fox 64 3D is a classic remake, fun, but with little added. The online modes are very simple. Fox works in 3D as we expected. No more.

    A promising beginning and a surprising use of the Borderlands license that shows potential to be an interesting place beyond being a shooter gallery.
