    Super Mario Galaxy was considered one of the best platform games ever and we couldn't expect the same for its sequel. However, what Super Mario Galaxy 2 has achieved is amazing: every level contains a different and really original quest. You will play a totally new game inspired by the first game, but without copying it at all. In addition to this, Nintendo has also fixed most of the minor failures of its predecessor, including the low difficulty level.

    GTA V represents the videogame at its finest. Tense and dramatic when it wants, joyful and surprising when the player wants it. Rockstar has managed to harmonize the different trends in the saga, managing to create an unforgettable experience that will be enjoyed for a long time to come.

    Uncharted 2 has no rival on the PS3. There's no other game, despite Killzone 2 on the visuals, with the same level of quality as Naughty Dog's newest game. The rhythm of the game is fast-paced and action-packed, and includes some fun, well-thought-out dialogue. The game is almost perfect in every stage, and it has online coop and deathmatch; there's no doubt that it's one of the top three games for the PS3, and one of the five best games of this year.

    Batman: Arkham City is great. It has the main features from Arkham Asylum but improves every possible aspect to create a bigger, better and more exciting Batman game. It delivers constantly and it's the best superhero videogame we've ever seen.

    After a trajectory of excellency with Oblivion and Fallout 3, Bethesda reaches a new level this generation, showing they have reached maturity in their unique way of making worlds. Thanks to their generosity, will and ambition, single players fans looking for huge worlds of high adventure can still keep dreaming. Skyrim is an absolute triumph.

    Little Big Planet is revolutionary thanks to its flexible, fun and powerful editor. Creating a quality level takes time but the feeling of achievement is overwhelming. A must for everyone who loves creativity or likes to explore what the creativity of a passionate community can produce.

    The Last of Us is a really different game, mixing traditional adventure, survival, action, stealth and constant exploration. The resources are most important. The best graphics on PlayStation 3 are back in the hands of Naughty Dog, also the atmosphere, and two unrepeatable and unforgettable characters. Overwhelming.

    Portal 2 is the great game that fans hoped. GLaDOS is back to make our life difficult. It doesn't allow us out of this hell that is the Aperture laboratory. Vegetation, more puzzles and many new challenges for one or two players.

    Red Dead Redemption offers a script that Sergio Leone would have loved to film, and the epic of Sam Peckinhpah. A great sandbox, with a compelling story, that may not be a masterpiece, but it delivers. Have no doubts: ride your horse, play as John Marston and let yourself be swept away.

    The War on Terror never rests. The same goes for Infinity Ward, who raises the bar again with Modern Warfare 2. Its new campaign keeps delivering a cinematic, inmersive, and visually spectacular experience, while polishing AI and respawn issues, and offering a minimum of 8 hours of gameplay. Without a multiplayer rival, where it's as powerful as a Tactical Nuke, including a first approach to coop, and archiving excellence in every aspect, this last Call of Duty proves itself as a very solid candidate to become the game of the year.

    Mass Effect 2 captures the elements that made the original a game to remember, showing once more the mastery of Bioware creating great stories and unforgettable characters. Not happy with that, the studio shows their will to surpass themselves with a very improved combat system which does a lot of right things to approach the gameplay of the best third person shooters available. Perhaps, in some aspects the team has been too overzealous to streamline certain aspects of the first game, loosing a bit of the original ingenuity, but it can't be discussed that the result is a more polished and focused title.

    It's one of the most acclaimed classic games in history and continues working as well as before. Ocarina of Time 3DS shows its mechanics never grow old and its magic doesn't succumb over time. 3D, redesign and extra content for which is, indisputably, the best game of the portable console.

    Bioshock is a masterpiece and it has not lost its shine. It´s one of the most visually amazing games you can find in PS3, Rapture is still a breathtaking scenario, the combat mechanic is rich and demand the player to be creative and think on a tactical way instead of the usual mindless approach, and overall, is one of the most magnificent games you can add to your collection.

    Better late than never, Mass Effects finally comes to PS3 with an excellent port of the second part. While is unfortunate that PS3 only users won't experiment the first entry of the series, this version of the sequel offers a good chance to get into the series. Furthermore, the package is great and full of content, which adds a good value to it.

    A masterpiece in audiovisual design, a fantastic action game and another testimony to the craft, the imagination and the ambition of Irrational. However, the campaign is a bit shorter than what was expected and it´s obvious the studio has not reached the full range of their objectives.

    Capcom reincarnates the essence of the classic Street Fighter II in this fourth chapter: a tribute to the old school 2D fighting genre embodied with outstanding visuals and online capabilities. Street Fighter IV should be considered a new climax among beat-'em ups: perfect in its execution, solid gameplay, addictive as a masterpiece, and extremely fun. It is only weakened by a few pale scenarios and uncharming tunes, not to mention Capcom's decision to charge for the alternate costumes.

    GTA: Chinatown Wars includes everything you know and love about the Grand Theft Auto series. This game demonstrates a mastery of DS form and function, and introduces some interesting elements and ways to explore through the touch screen. Awesome graphics, old-school mechanics… Chinatown Wars is one of the best DS games ever made.

    Super Mario 3D World is one of the best Mario games. It's a perfect mix between New Super Mario Bros co-op, 3D Land platforming experience and some of the best skills of other franchise games. This game has one of the most varied and brilliant level design that we remember in any EAD Tokyo development.

    Finally, the eagerly awaited sequel to the original bestseller Starcraft is here. While Wings of Liberty will not break the mold in the world of real-time strategy gaming, it surely stands out as the best package to be found in this genre. For the competitors that will try to seize it in the future, Starcraft 2 is - simply put - the new benchmark for years to come.

    What more can we say of a game we have been playing and talking about for months? Minecraft is a triumph fueled by imagination and a great community. Sometimes it's frustrating how much it could offer, but that's because it offers a lot already and there is always a hunger for more with such an unlimited approach. With four million of users already, saying "buy it" seems unnecesary, but just in case, do it.

    It is by far the best game we've seen on PSVita. As as enhanced edition of Persona 4, 'Golden' works perfectly as both an introduction to new gamers and a demanding adventure for advanced ones. Offering a handful of new additions to the franchise's core, it's a must-have for any Vita owner that's willing to expend more than 100h with a fantastic JRPG.

    Following the old motto "if it's not broken, don't fix it", Gears of War 2 evolves upon its predecessor expanding the scope, size, possibilities and much more... this new title simply delivers. Clearly not a huge leap in terms of innovation, yet it is Microsoft's best bet and a sure winning title for this Christmas. GoW 2 is as good as a third person shooter can be today and a new benchmark in the genre. Highly recommended.

    Timeless masterpiece. This Legend of Zelda takes over from Ocarina of Time. It's a step in the saga and a revolution in the design of third-person adventures. The Wii MotionPlus works perfectly, so the game is especially fun. A gift from heaven!
