    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.

    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 new entry on the series, a new success. The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo's greatest franchises, and there's no doubt that it deserves it; Spirit Tracks is a huge game, beautiful, with an incredible cooperative gameplay and many things to do.

    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 PĆ³keWalker. These cartridges are a must buy for all the fans of the series and the lovers of RPG.

    It's been ten years, but Joanna aged rather well. Fun, entertaining, with a bunch of game modes (solo and multiplayer), Perfect Dark is almost as great as it was when it was first released. This port is good, but it can't really be referred to as a remake.

    Being as it's a marvelous example of how to rebuilt a JRPG from a traditional fan-base, DQIX's very much everything what we can expect on a Square Enix game, specially under this franchise: a considerable mixture of monsters, 50+ hours of pure fun and an interesting story. Bear in mind that this's multiplayer focused cartridge - you'll only take the 100% of its content playing along with some friends.

    Guybrush Theepwood strikes back in the remake of his best adventure so far. Also, Lechuck's Revenge is one of the best of his genre. A great adventure game and a fantastic remake.

    Lara Croft changes her typical gameplay, but it's even better right now: a huge game, full of elements, fun and compelling, with great visuals and gameplay. It's excellent overall, one of the best XBLA/PSN games out there.

    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.

    Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is just one of the best games for the PSP, with a great and long storyline, the best battle system of all Kingdom Hearts games to date and three fantastic new main characters. Don't worry about the subtitle: this is the Kingdom Hearts III you've been waiting for.

    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.

    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.

    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow represents an excellent reboot of the saga, with a huge diversity in the gameplay, scenarios, enemies and situations. With nice graphics and immersive soundtrack, fans from the Konami's franchise will be pleased with this long hack'n slash adventure. A must have.

    The next installment of Nba 2k series it's more than an annual upgrade. Jordan's presence takes protagonism in amazing new gameplay modes, and all aspects related to playability and graphic realism has been improved. Definitely, the best basketball simulator in current generation.

    Obsidian had a difficult task with New Vegas, a "sequel" of Fallout 3 where they could not offer anything radically new in terms of engine or game systems. But just as expected, the superlative talent of the studio for narrative and dialogue has been more than enough to keep the interest in this game. More of the same, yes, but better and closer to the spirit of the original series, just don't expect it to be immediately noticeable.

    Layton and the Unwound Future is the best title of the franchise so far, packed with new puzzles and an intriguing new story that will take both characters -Layton and Luke- to a new but-not-better future.

    Super Meat Boy is simply one of the best games of the year, and we are not only talking about downloadable stuff. A brilliant return to the old-school mechanics.

    New instruments, new ways of understading the musical scene of videogames industry. Rock Band 3's so far the best on its genre, with tons of new features, improved graphics and the possibility of learning how to play an instrument for real. It's expensive, but it's worth what it costs.

    Black Ops's on Wii very much the same that we will find on the X360/PS3/PC versions, meaning: an entertaining game with an outstading script. It's an amazing experience for the owners of this platform, no matter if it looks better or not than in other consoles.

    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.

    Deathwing is back, and his emergence on the world of Azeroth has been plunged into a devastating cataclysm. However, the fate that we have is that with all this destruction comes the best expansion appeared to date for the MMORPG market leader.

    Treyarch archieves with Black Ops the best single player campaign in a recent Call of Duty; spectacular, memorable, well driven and with a very solid script, and wraps it with some other extras that denote special care to the solo-player. The multiplayer shines as usual, adding few new modes that blend in very well in a mode that will make the game last exciting moths. On the other hand, AI flaws, respawn patterns and the engine performance are COD's endemic sickness that need to be seriously reconsidered in the short therm or they could pull the franchise down.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
