    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.

    Atlus' latest game for PlayStation 2 is with no doubt a masterpiece for this console. It takes the genre far away from what we're used to seeing nowadays. It's not the best JRPG so far, though, but it has all it takes to become an instant classic. If you're willing to enjoy a never-ending game with a immersive story and a lot of characters to deal with, do not hesitate, this is your best choice.

    Civilization V is a fantastic entry in the series, which avoids the trap of getting stagnant thanks to some important novelties on combat system, interface and general design, designed to create a 4X of elegant and clean mechanics.

    It's difficult to find a game more crazy and funny than Joe Danger Special Edition, a very good arcade game who once again proves that the simple concepts can be the base for the better games. One of the best games of the year for the Xbox Live.

    Nintendo and Treasure fully reached their goal in the making of a better and longer action adventure - Sin & Punishment 2: Successor to the Sky's one of the most beautiful games that you'll find on the Wii console. It uses an interesting score system that hardcore players will love, not only because its playability, but also for the online ranking system. Shame there's not a WiFi coop to share with players around the world.

    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.

    Activision creates the Guitar Hero for disc-jockeys with DJ Hero. With impressive music themes, a great and easy-to-use controller, and paying attention to every little aspect, we find a videogame that is a starting point for a whole new series; with this game, club culture is in an even better position than with the classic Beatmania.

    A new graphics engine takes the lead in a sixth generation that brings along tons of new Pokémons, new gameplay elements and the same old-school combat style that has earned a die hard fanbase for more than 20 years. It's Pokemon at his best, a must-have for both fans and 3DS owners.

    HeartGold and Soul Silver are all the series needed to get to its highest level in DS: a classic up to date, respecting the base and amplifying it with elements as interesting as the PókeWalker. These cartridges are a must buy for all the fans of the series and the lovers of RPG.

    Uncharted 3 is the seal to one of the best franchises of this generation. Packed with intense action scenes, as usual, the script is the most exciting we've seen in the series so far. The superb graphics allow the game to show incredibly recreated locations such as the desert of Arabia. The multiplayer is much improved, becoming a real alternative to the main game. The only problem? Not as good and surprising as the second game, and a slow beginning.

    Winter of the Melodias is the best WiiWare title so far. With an outstanding graphic environment and an improved gameplay mechanic, there's nothing much to say other than to recommend the game if you're a Wii / WiiWare user.

    While it keeps the same gameplay modes as the original, the changes made due to the adaptation the the Vietnam war, sometimes make it feel like a new game more than an add-on, seeing the price.

    While not perfect, The Old Republic is probably the most polished MMO on the day of release. EA, LucasArts and Bioware's combined efforts brings us the best of the Star Wars universe and the golden dream of every fan of the saga. Jedi or Sith, this game blasts your brain away.

    Chair Entertainmet and Epic Games developed Shadow Complex as an action game based on classiscs like Metroid series. This game will allow you to explore secrets in a EE UU military basement with a fast paced action gameplay and stunning graphics powered by Unreal Engine 3.

    Forza Horizon 2 is a great new installment in the Turn10 franchise. Playground Games has created one of the best new driving games: full of intense and frantic content with new weather system, great drivatar AI and good visuals.

    After two months of waiting, Mirror's Edge has come to the PC. This version is identical to the consoles, but with a few changes to make it more astonishing. The use of the NVIDIA PhysX engine makes the game more realistic and the graphics are smoother thanks to the use of AA filter. One of the most innovative game of 2008 is now even better in 2009.

    A nordic-esque fable narrated with a feeling of peace and sadness, Brothers A Tale of Two Sons is just the kind of game a fan of Starbreeze's last titles should avoid. The story of two brothers and their journey will take us on a ride similar to other jewels like ICO or Journey. A ride that maybe has a very peculiar use of the pad -simultaneously 1 player cooperative-, but where we can interact with two characters to a level never done before, in a journey of search that requires us to accept its rules and let us go into the experience by the hand.

    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.

    Empire Total War is one of the greatest strategy games ever. A world full of life, with many factions and possibilities, in the chaos of the XVIII century. An excellent game, nearly a masterpiece, that only lacks better visuals to achieve higher goals. Highly recommended to fans of the genre.

    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.

    One of the greatest PC games that we've tried so far this year is a puzzle game mixed with stunning graphics. A truly robotical adventure that's meant to be one of this year's GOTY without any doubt.

    Burnout Paradise Ultimate Box is a great compilation. It offers the same game as last year's game, but with all the added features that appeared as DLC thought the year. Really fun to play, with a great technical level and several game modes that offer hours and hours of terminal velocity. Highly recommended for lovers of racing games.

    Animal Crossing: New Leaf is not a game, it's an experience. Rule your own village as a major and share your experience with friends online. This is the game that you will be playing for the next years in your 3DS.

    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.

    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.
