    BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is at the moment one of the best fighting games, and the unique that can be considered to the height of Street Fighter IV. Sprites in high definition, amazing backgrounds, fast and intense play system... The best game than Arc System Works never has created.

    One of the greatest Castlevania 3D games ever made comes to PC in the best shape. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Ultimate Edition is the best way to discover Gabriel Belmont's crusade against darkness. An enhanced experience for Mercury Steam's stunning adventure.

    A different, wild trip on the same island, this history showing Sergeant "Psycho" Sykes makes Crysis Warhead not only a technical achievement, showing the best graphics on a PC yet, but a great example of fast-paced strategic action, making it a game that, more than a spin-off, can stand by its own.

    As outstading as it can be, Takahashi's latest work is yet his greatest. Xenoblade Chronicles is the best JRPG that we've seen this year, and we could also say in this so-called next-gen.

    Human Revolution is a superb refinement of the design ideas of Deus Ex. It's not so groundbreaking, but it compensates for it with an excellent taste for identifying the best elements of the Ion Storm classic and improving them, mixing in some great ideas of their own, like the use of the third person camera for infiltration and cover. A great sense of freedom, a compelling story, fantastic visual design and a terrific demonstration of excellence make Eidos Montreal a force to be reckoned with in the industry.

    Nintendo proves once again why Pokemon is not a franchise just for kids. While not the most innovative sequel, Game Freak keeps adding new layers of depth to their formula, once again delivering something truly special to the fans.

    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.

    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.

    One of the best 2D platforms game in the last years.Varied game, full of possibilities and long. Donkey Kong Country Returns has a polished gameplay and briliant artistic designs in the return of the most famous virtual monkey.

    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.

    Arkham City is still a superb game in PC and it benefits from some extra features with the right PC, but the delay compared to console versions, the weird mix of Steamwork, GFWL and SecuROM, and some initial perfomance settings with DirectX 11, makes this version a missed opportunity to make something truly great for compatible users.

    We put on our trainers in order to start running through the skyscrapers of an enormous city. Mirror's Edge is an unique platforming game, very realistic, with a very special point of view in the genre. A huge experience, very different to what we have played previously, with an incredible gameplay and great atmosphere. It's the beginning of a brand new series that can provide us with many satisfactions.

    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.

    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.

    Control-wise, FIFA 11 offers several new features, but it has some ideas during the match that prevent it from vastly improving itself and becoming the ultimate football game. Its main features this year: playing as the goalkeeper and playing 11 vs 11 players online.

    One of Konami's biggest franchises is back on Nintendo DS with one of its best entries. A great game that offers amazing visuals and an incredible gameplay, several game modes and an adult story. The Castlevania series takes a step forward; Igarashi offers us one of the best games for the handheld, and one of the greatest Castlevania games.

    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.

    This game is very much inspired by Super Mario Galaxy, and that's fantastic! Over 100 levels, many challenges, variety and costumes, especially the Tanooki dress. Put the 3D effect to the fullest and enjoy. This game is designed for that. It's the best 3DS exclusive to date.

    A stunning adventure, one of Matsuno's masterworks, a good example of how to develop a Strategy RPG with an intriguin' storyline. Plenty of new additions to the gameplay mechanics, it's yet another game that should be on any gamer's shelve.

    The best soccer sim of this generation. The groundings of UEFA 08 have been optimized in each and every most important sections; visually impressive, with improved playability and faster controls response, which was the biggest flaw on previous installments until today. Online mode for 10 vs 10 play will surely be a record-breaking in terms of participation. Features full licences, options and several game modes to entertain the audience for months to come.

    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.

    Kirby strikes again with his best adventure so far, probably also one of the best stories that we've discovered on Wii's catalog. This is a trully epic adventure in which Kirby discovers a new way of developing his abilites, meeting new friends and so on. It's fun and entertaining, and without any doubt the best game for this console on the beginning of 2011. Yet another must-have for Nintendo's Wii.

    Layton's latest adventure is his best for the time being. Same graphics, different sounds and a completely new storyline is very much what players are going to find in The Diabolical Box, a game that has nothing but fun to offer every player that have the guts to get over with more than a hundred puzzles and a compelling story. One of the best games of this year without any doubt at all.

    Path of Exile is a great alternative for the lovers of classic 'hack & slash'. It's an entertaining title with an interesting gameplay and completely free. The game is able to rival the great current references in the genre, despite just taking its first steps. Path of Exile has clear objectives and has managed correctly oriented toward them. Its use of the familiarity with the genre will capture the attention of many aRPG players in exchange for losing originality.

    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.

    The best football game this season, with the new defense system, progress in AI and graphics, hundreds of options and a more sophisticated Manager Mode. FIFA 12 is really great, and EA Sports is bringing good ideas.

    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.

    The effort of Team Ninja and Nintendo working hand-to-hand on the development of a new Metroid iteration is mainly everything a fan of the series could've expected - Isolation, action, love and thrill... Other M's a trip into Samus Aran's mind and feelings. Meanwhile, the gameplay is successful when trying to offer some fun, something that's worth trying. It doesn't matter if you're a die-hard of the franchise or just a curious newcomer, Metroid: Other M hits the spot just where it had to do it, and that's basically everything we've asked for after so many years willing to try some new 2D action based on this heroine.

    Shogun 2 is like a melting pot for all the ideas, gameplay and concepts we've seen in the previous games of the Total War series. Its pillars are quite similar to Empire's, but this game has improvements in many areas, and the setting is so charming, that it feels like something unique.
