    The single player campaign is blessed by stunning visuals but falls with a dull story and a too short experience: where the game really shines is the multiplayer area, with very entertaining gameplay and modes, even if it lacks some polish that could have made it even better.

    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.

    AC III successfully fulfills fans' expectations, satisfyingly bringing to and end the main plots open in the previous games and introducing some spectacular news over an already rich play offering. We would have liked a less rushed storytelling on Desmond's side with more action missions, while the historic setting could prove to be not as charming for European gamers; it's however a great new episode in Ubisoft's series and a sure must buy.

    A visually awesome game, with a demanding but highly satisfying gameplay. If you aren't afraid of an unforgiving and old school flavored experience, it's a strongly recommended buy.

    The perfect game for every Metallica and Thrash/Heavy Metal fan, also thanks to the subtle but important gameplay improvements introduced by Neversoft. It's a pity that the absence of support for the pre-existing DLC songs library forces us to always keep a copy of GH: World Tour at hand.

    An evolutionary step in Codemasters' series, with great improvements in almost every area. Unmissable by every Formula One lover.

    A very original game, both from the gameplay and artistic points of view; what keeps it from being a real masterpiece are its simplicity and repetitiveness in objectives. It's however highly suggested to everyone looking for different and innovative gaming experiences.

    F1 2011 is a good step forward in the series with better driving model and simulation, great graphics and some nice ideas on the gameplay side. The experience is only partially ruined by the high loading times and some unexplainable pauses when entering and leaving the pit stops. It remains however a must-have for every F1 fan.

    If you're used to the classic NfS style with its extreme customization and its barebones arcade style, Criterion's game could reveal itself as an unwelcome change; however, despite some not very good gameplay choices it's a very entertaining and engaging racing game.

    DJ Hero revealed to be very entertaining even for people usually not into the DJ and hip-hop scene: we've got a long tracklist full of little gems, with a well projected and solid controller. The downsides are the too few playing modes and some weird freezes when in the songs selection menus. However it's a good start, upon which the developers will be able to build a successful franchise: if you're tired of your plastic guitars and batteries, this will give you a breath of fresh air.

    Bulletstorm manages to distinguish itself in the FPS crowd thanks to its desecrating humor and a shooting style that allows people to enjoy killing in a hundred different ways, even co-operatively. A very entertaining game, sporting some great environments.

    One of the best games of the year and a very long and compelling experience. Too bad for some nasty bugs, that we hope will be fixed soon.

    Excessive, vulgar, absurd, ultra-violent, embarassing: Saints Row: The Third's charme resides in its uniquely ironic and ill-mannered style, but supported by strong structure and gameplay.

    Borderlands is a successful experiment, managing to introduce some fresh elements in the quite static FPS landscape. The gameplay mechanics and its original graphics make it fresh and entertaining, suitable both for FPS fans and the people who loves Diablo-style RPGs. If you're willing to play it cooperatively with (up to four) your friends, Borderlands will shine in its best shape.

    FIFA 14 confirms itself as the best football sim around. A great and improved gameplay and many play modes make it a worthwhile buy on Xbox 360 even with the next-gen version looming.

    Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes HD is a successful porting of the NDS game, with sharp graphics and a very entertaining gameplay. RGP lovers won't like its excessive simplification, but if you like strategy, fantasy and puzzle games, you should try it.

    A real multi-sensorial video gaming experience, something different from everything else and with a very definite artistic soul. It isn't however a game for everyone: just five levels feel too little for a retail game and only the ones willing to repeat them over and over harvesting for points will make the game more durable. Notwithstanding, it remains a gem of rare beauty that would be a pity missing.

    A great action game that doesn't invent anything new but pushes the gas on speed, adrenaline and spectacularity without a single pace or quality drop. Everything is graced by a very good technical side, with astounding bos battles and a rock-solid frame-rate. Its only drawback is its short and trivial story.

    Codemasters managed to recreate the main aspects of the F1 championship, with a very good and enjoyable career, a driving model suitable for both newbies and expert drivers and great graphics expecially in wet conditions. Too bad fore some annoying bugs that worsen the overall experience.

    A very satisfying sequel, vast and blessed by a great level design, both gameplay and art-wise. Only a slightly disappointing story and some camera problems keep it from reaching higher heights.

    Halo 3: ODST maintains all the features that made we love Halo 3, bringing us a very good plot even if without introducing great gameplay or technical news. What we obtain is a highly enthralling experience that won't displease all the series lovers. We particularly liked the Firefight mode , which allows us to play with our friends without having to dive into the ultra-testosteronic Halo 3 multiplayer arena. The 49,99 Euros price is just right for the kind of content offered, so it's surely an advised buy.

    Stunning graphics and an adrenalinic gameplay make Resident Evil 5 one of the showcase titles for this generation: its mainly action foundation could disappoint who was expecting a more atmospheric and purely horror game, but it is undoubtedly an extremely entertaining, cinematic and satisfying experience, with many surprises and great variety. A must buy.

    Street Fighter X Tekken proved to be a great fighting game under every aspect, introducing fresh gameplay elements to Capcom's formula and dissipating any doubt about it being a mere marketing move to attract fans from both franchises.

    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.

    We expected an overly simulative game, but Need for Speed: SHIFT revealed to be half-way between sim and arcade racing: nevertheless, we found id very entertaining and exciting. If you're looking for a proper sim you'll have to look elsewhere on the market, but if all you want is feeling strong and satisfying emotions, this game could be the one for you.

    UFC 2009: Undisputed hits the mark, giving us a very good fight sim. All the different fight techniques are well explained, and it will attract even gamers new to this extreme sport. One of the best fighting games seen this gen, a must have for every fan of the genre.

    One of the best sports game around, complete in every aspect and with some nice surprises like the GM Connected feature that we'd like to see it carried in other titles too.

    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow has been a real surprise with superb visuals, great gameplay and a very high longevity.

    Darksiders is revealed to be a very good game and an authentic surprise, showing the true passion of the developers for many classical gameplay mechanics, managing to avoid any "clone effect". The game is only lacking that magic and pathos that could have guaranteed it a place in the games pantheon. It is however an unmissable title for every action-rpg lover.

    TTT2 might simply be seen as a (huge) collection of characters and stages for Tekken fans, but it's much more: the Fight Lab's got great potential for Namco's brawler newcomers, while the new tactical approach reached by the Tag interactions and the many available modes – including a strong if basic online support - will keep the interest high for every Tekken fan.
