    A great story. Touching, brilliantly developed end elegantly depicted. Ubisoft shows once again that video games are indeed art and a great storytelling medium.

    A great game, that successfully builds upon the foundation of the first title delivering us one of the best super heroes and action games around. It lacks highly memorable moments like the ones in the original game and delivers a quite disappointing final boss fight, but its incredible content richness and great gameplay make it an highly suggested buy.

    UFC Undisputed 2010 is an astounding fighting game, with an extremely deep gameplay experience, many play modes and, most importantly, many gameplay changes. The only downside could be a higher difficulty level, so confront it only if you're willing to spend some hours to master all the controls and the fighters' moves.

    EA Sports nailed almost every aspect of the game: FIFA 10 is pure soccer, or at least the nearest thing we can find in a video game. 25 championships, new modes and a perfect multiplayer make it a must have.

    Halo: Reach finds its strength in a varied and balanced gameplay, a deep and dramatic story and gorgeous environments, aside from the many multiplayer modes with virtually infinite customization possibilities. We're only left with a little bit of delusion for the lack of really surprising and memorable moments during the story, like the ones the series accustomed us to. Notwithstanding, Bungie closes its run on Halo with a great game that both fans and newcomers will find highly satisfying.

    An amazing title, greatly improved both in gameplay, simulation and graphics, and with some great additions like the stunning Autovista mode. We would have loved if the developers pushed the envelope further by adding night racing and weather conditions, but it's nevertheless an unmissable buy for every motorsports lover.

    A great game with awesome settings, a deep and extremely complex story and charming characters. It left a bitter taste in our mouths for not fully reaching its initial ambitions, especially regarding Elizabeth's interactions in combat and for lacking some of the magic present in the first BioShock, but it's nonetheless an excellent game which surely deserves to be played.

    • 88 Metascore
    • 93 Critic Score
    A brilliant game with deep gameplay, great graphics, a highly involving story and, mainly, it feels like a game conceived for consoles rather than as a PC port. Undoubtedly one of the best RPGs on Xbox 360.

    Batman: Arkham Asylum has been a real surprise, delivering us a great action game, with a deep stealth/tactical gameplay, great loyalty to the original comics and a strong plot. Undoubtedly the best comics-based video game so far, and one of the best games released this year: a real milestone.

    A really surprising game, characterized by the great freedom given to the player and the high tension it can induce when crawling in the shadows. We would have liked a lengthier story, but it nevertheless remains a must-buy.

    An outstanding RPG, from its great plot and storytelling all the way to the engaging combat and incredibly rich world, supported by some great visuals. Despite some minor slip-ups in frame-rate stability and enemy AI, it's definitely one of the best games of the generation so far.

    Far Cry 3 is a highly satisfying and content-rich experience with great characters, superb locations and where freedom and player choice reign supreme. Ubisoft could have done something more on the plot side, but it's undoubtedly a very fascinating and sometimes surprising game.

    • 92 Critic Score
    With Black Ops 2 Treyarch packaged a great and content-rich game with an intense and exciting campaign and a great multiplayer experience with a very strong selection of maps; the Zombie mode is the only underwhelming part of the game. If you like CoD's adrenalinic and frantic style, you'll love this.

    Shift 2 successfully hits its target: delivering an exciting racing experience, highlighting all the aspects that make magic in motorsports. Hardcore racing lovers won't find it a super-simulative experience even in the new Elite mode, but its accessible driving model, spectacular visuals and great challenge level will please every fan of the genre.

    If you're looking for a game with a great story, dense with mystery and suspense and capable of keeping you in constant distress for hours, Alan Wake won't disappoint you. It isn't a perfect game mainly due to the somewhat repetitive action sequences, but its core is in the fantastic plot and storytelling. It undoubtedly is a great and unique experience, and as such it's highly suggested.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    A unique game that successfully manages to blend the boundaries between action and RPG, delivering us an immediate and engrossing experience. It will disappoint those of you looking for a real challenge, but if all you're looking for is a great adventure to lose yourself in, look no further.

    Borderlands 2 is one of the best co-op games around and more broadly one of the most enjoyable ones, thanks to the sheer variety of weapons, enemies and missions, capable to entertain the player for many hours and several play-throughs. A must-play.

    Blacklist successfully continues on the road taken by Conviction, keeping the core gameplay choices and expanding everything with a more open mission structure, greater focus on stealth gameplay, great replayability and a strong co-op and competitive multiplayer support. Dismissing it as another action-oriented Splinter Cell will be an error: it can be as stealthy and challenging as you want it to be.

    Assassin's Creed II is all the first game should have been if the authors developed more deeply plot, characters and gameplay: being able to rely on a well proven engine, they focused this time on a making the game more interactive and varied, even if it’s missing some of the wow factor the first game had two years ago. A fascinating action-adventure, full of things to do and moved buy an intriguing story: a must buy.

    • 92 Critic Score
    An awesome game, one of the best action games of this gen capable of combining a great story and characters with an adrenaline-fueled and highly satisfying gameplay. Its only flaw is in the short story duration, but if you're willing to test yourselves with higher difficulty levels and VR Missions, it will be worth your money.

    Dark Souls is a game without compromises: you'll either love or hate it. The very high difficulty level could discourage the less undaunted players, but if you'll take your time to master its mechanics and "enter" into the game, you'll be rewarded with one of the most satisfying and memorable experiences in your life as a gamer.

    A stunning puzzle-platform adventure, which couples great mechanics and smart puzzles to a very intriguing and adult story. Definitely one of the best indie (and maybe overall too) games on Xbox One so far.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    One of the best games on Live Arcade, capable of rivaling even many of the retail games out there. A great level design keeps the gameplay interesting and entertaining from start to finish, together with great visuals and very high overall production quality. Definitely a must buy.

    Square Enix took a great risk changing all the series core mechanics, but it turned out to be a winning bet: a great technical realization and an over-the-top combat system make this game worth the buy for every Final Fantasy and JRPG fan.

    Fight Night Round 4 is a real masterwork, a milestone in boxing simulations and a tough challenger for all future titles in this genre. If you like sports and boxing, there's not a single reason why you wouldn't own one of the best sports games of 2009 so far.
