    Dead Space is a pleasant surprise, it takes the best elements of classic terror sci-fi films and combines them with some of the most notorious ideas of games like Bioshock, Condemned, Resident Evil 4 or Doom 3. Instead of an improved but unoriginal copycat, the team managed to give this mix a distinctive personality, making it a great experience on its own.

    Resistance 2 is far better than the original. Technical improvements, more balanced gameplay, lots of exciting situations and visually spectacular. Both online and offline modes can offer tons of hours of fun, and being able to play with up to 60 users in a same battle is such an unforgettable experience. Chimeras are harder than ever, and Nathan must defend USA from their assault. One of the best 2008's FPS. Period.

    Improved ball physics, especially in distant shots and lob passes. It also has softened the game itself, giving a sense of fluidity and speed that it did not reach before, thanks to a faster response from the players, and the new control 360 that now allows changes to direction and dribbling with only stick address without using combos.

    Shocking audiovisual section at service of one of the best games of the genre.

    Fans of tactics will find XCOM: Enemy Within a very interesting title and a worthy successor. It provides a good amount of changes to the original game, such as a new campaign with more enemies, more missions and new events ready to test our skills. It's not exactly the same game as last year's game thanks to some of the new mechanics but it's similar enough for not being scared of changes. XCOM: Enemy Within is a high level game and with great quality.

    Rare Replay is a great classic compilation with must-haves like Battletoads, Conker, Banjo and Perfect Dark. It has excellent replay value and is full of extras to unlock. We missed some classic Rare games and one or two choices could have been better.

    Torchlight II is exactly the game we expected when we finished with the first game. A quantitative and qualitative jump that will delight fans of the Hack'n Slash genre, with interesting classes, great co-op and a big adventure to experience and replay. Furthermore, it offers a fantastic value for its great price.

    Fantasy Life could be one of those games that you fall instantly in love with. With a lifespan that goes beyond 100+ hours of fun and thousands of different quests to accomplish, it's the first RPG and Social Life-Style game that makes us wonder if this is the righteous path to follow in upcoming years.

    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.

    Metroid Prime Trilogy turns out to be one of the greatest choices of Nintendo Wii. Three games in just one package for less than 50€ that grants more than 100h of gameplay, a stunning graphic engine and, what's more important, a literaturesque way to explain the story of Samus Aran, her beginnings and everything else. A must-have no matter what anyone says.

    A superb offering, a metaphysical discussion masterfully disguised as an excellently designed puzzle game. A game that you will remember.

    Counter-Strike: it´s a classic and its formula has never grown tired. Global Offensive is a really good interpretation of that formula, more refined and better executed than CS: Source in its first days, so it's in an excellent position to reinvigorate the community around this seminal title.

    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.

    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.

    Dungeons & Dragons, a mythical name for fans of the classic pencil and paper RPG. Tower of Doom and Shadow Over Mystara, two cult videogames. Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, the opportunity that we had waited for twenty years. The download of this game is simply inevitable.

    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.

    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.

    Dark Souls II is an ideal game for veteran players, but it's also a good opportunity for newcomers. From Software added some positive concessions while keeping the essence of the franchise. Action, exploration, replay value and great online experiences in another sweet nightmare. Prepare to die once again.

    Professor's Layton beloved formula's here, at last. Level 5 latest work is one of its greatests, with stunning graphics and a gameplay style based on puzzle-solving. It's a very good game, and despite being the first of a trilogy it's a worth-buying game, a console-selling blockbuster.

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

    Reflex is Modern Warfare at its best. It's very much the same version that we saw on PS3 and XBox 360 two years ago, but set to be played with the nunchuk and the wiimote controllers. It's graphically amazing, with an outstanding sound and the same story that we enjoyed on the original version. It's a good option to expend your money if you're looking forward to buy the best FPS of this console.

    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.

    Borderlands 2 improves on all the elements that made the first one such a big surprise, offering a fun and complete package. Great for solo, absolutely fantastic in co-op.

    BioShock 2 is a great game, despite being unable to surpass the original in any aspect. A good second visit to Rapture, that will delight fans of the first one. An engaging story, great visuals and a good gameplay, both on single player and multiplayer.

    USFIV is definitely the Street Fighter IV ultimate version; huge roster, good balance changes, new and needed tools for pro players and content sharing via social media, in a game that can make Street Fighter IV last for a decade.

    Unique, different and original. Three elements that make Gravity Rush one of the best titles in the PS Vita library. Long, visually stunning and very, very fun to play, probably most gamers will spend hours just floating and rushing through the air feelin' free, instead of following the story of the game, just like playing GTA or a sandbox Spider-Man. A unique feeling that undoubtely deserves our attention.

    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.

    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.
