    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.

    With great visuals and intense heart-pounding gameplay, completed with a replayable Campaign mode and a solid Multiplayer offering that fans of the saga (and gamers who look for a great FPS experience) will love, Resistance 3 turns into the best game in the series so far, making it an epic conclusion to Insomniac's and PlayStation 3's exclusive trilogy.

    Team ICO's first two games were able to join the terms art and videogame in one single product. Ueda's studio delivered two astonishing titles thanks to their visuals, shocking the user through the design of the environments or the gigantic colossus. Both of them were able to produce different sensations in the player: love, loneliness, fear... they weren't just fun, but magnificent storytelling experiences. Two masterpieces that are now available in HD and 3D.

    Radiant Silvergun is one of the best shoot 'em ups that we've seen in the so-called next-gen. The co-op and the new online functions are welcome, and they just make better one of the most intriguing games of the late 90 decade.

    Tripware brings one of the most cruel battles in human history to our home. A fight on the streets and house by house, recreated by one of the most demanding FPS of the moment. We have never been so close to knowing what those anonymous soldiers felt. Superb game.

    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.

    Dark Souls is an Action RPG following the unique gameplay legacy of Demon's Soul. The original online system comes back with a deeper world and more effective mechanics... in one of the most difficult games in this generation. You will love dying. Once again.

    NBA 2K12 is another step in the way of excellence that 2K keeps following in their portrayal of this sport. Richer offensive and defensive options, lots of technical imrpovements and a fantastic presentation makes this game a must for basketball lovers.

    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.

    Football Manager is a game that grows bigger every year, better each season. Time passes by it without reducing the appeal of its wonderful mechanics and its easy to dive into gaming experience. Few alternatives in its genre engross the users with as much passion as the game by Sports Interactive. Although improvements this year are not the most anticipated, the final result is more and more interesting. A game to be considered mandatory for sport lovers.

    Gameplay-wise, it's essentially the same game; that is, the best online FPS, an exciting and frantic experience. It offers several game modes, new weapons and balances the perks. Also, the competitive and the cooperative experience in Spec Ops and Survival has been greatly improved. And it has the best campaign yet in a Modern Warfare game. Another headshot from Infinity Ward.

    L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition retains the essence of the game by raising its technical level, but it has some obvious differences controlling the character or handling a vehicle. However, the game is much more immersive on its version for PC and this greatly benefits a title with a remarkable story. L.A. Noire is a must for any player... if he did not play it on Xbox630 or PS3.

    For everyone that had the question in mind about how 2D platforming would have evolved with the current technology and high production values, Rayman Origins it's the perfect answer. Ancel's game is not only a joy to play, but is excellently designed and inmensely creative, all matched with striking visuals that makes us hope UbiArt technology goes far in this industry.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Although there aren't revelations about Umbrella or Raccoon City, this Resident Evil is unique and wonderful, it is able to mix survival horror with third person shooting and is an exciting product, also with an inimitable story. Nintendo 3DS has found an indispensable game.

    Sakaguchi knows how to make great JRPGs. The Last Story is a memorable and magical work. The combat system is brilliant, it's fun, and Nobuo Uematsu's music helps you to remember the great games of the genre. Nintendo Wii has another essential. Zael will be your friend.

    Few games have captured the essence of the feudal society so faithfully. A complete simulation of dynasties and a medieval strategy game that no one should miss.

    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.

    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.

    Chaos Rings II is an excelent J-RPG for iOS devices with nice mechanics and brilliant narrative; just the excesive price tag could be an impediment for many potential users.

    Fez
    FEZ is not just a nostalgia exercise, or a 2D platformer, or an attempt of trying to bring back the glorious 8-Bit pixelated days, no. FEZ is simply an astonishing game, a playable experience no one calling himself a gamer should miss. And truly a brain-teaser at its highest level, too!

    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.
