    This is the best mini I've ever played. It's fun, the play is good, atmosphere is great, music is fantastic and above all ... it's addictive!

    This game is based on your skills to press the different buttons as fast as possible to make a great rhythm. A simple game in its looks, but when you play it, the game has very different styles and that's great!

    This is the perfect example of how a MiNi has to be. It is simple, but with great gamplay, it looks good and the most important thing: it full of fun! One of the best MiNiS you can get.

    Piyotama is a great and at sometimes difficult puzzle game with good gameplay, but when you've learned it, than it will become a kind of an addiction. Another great PSP MiNi to buy.

    Words almost can't describe a game that nears perfection. And that is exactly what Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception does.

    Is this the perfect sequel? Yes. Rocksteady takes the core experience from the already fantastic Batman: Arkham Asylum and expands on it in every imaginable way. This is how every superhero game should be. Action game of the year!

    Even though it's only two hours long, you won't forget playing Journey anytime soon. And more importantly, you won't regret it: this game is absolutely gorgeous, complemented by simple, but incredibly effective gameplay. If you're a gamer with some form of self-esteem, you'll pick this up as soon as possible.

    Yes, you can find some bugs and glitches here and there, but that's to be expected. What you should remember is that this game will slaughter your personal life and won't let you go until you've explored every bit of its huge open world. Now go and buy Skyrim, you won't regret it.

    The combination of the social aspect, the hacking, the action and stealth makes Deus Ex: Human Revolution a unique game. The visuals look stunning, the soundtrack is fantastic and the gameplay is brilliant. Great variety and there are alot of different ways to play this game and that makes it fun to play time after time. In other words, one of the best games of this year.

    The graphics are stunning, the audio is brilliant, the gameplay is fabulous. The whole game is outstanding, maybe the best game of 2009!

    The last part in the trilogy is one of the best PlayStation 3 games ever. Kratos is back and he's pissed off at Zeus and the other Gods. In this third part Kratos fights against the biggest enemies ever and that all in brilliant graphics with brilliant audio and a lot (and we mean a lot) of blood and gore. Everybody should buy this game!

    L.A. Noire is a fantastic game. Playing with Cole Phelps as a detective can be really interesting. The gameplay is great, the graphics are brilliant because of the new MotionScan technology and Los Angeles is full of details. A lot of words to describe the game, but two will suffice: must buy!

    Chell is still locked up in the Aperture Laboratories and you are trying to escape for the second time. This time you'll play a singleplayer with ten hours of gameplay and brilliant puzzles. The humor is great and the new co-op mode is fantastic. Valve delivers with Portal 2 one of the best games of 2011 already.

    We've got a few minor complaints, but overall Bioware ends its epic space trilogy in style. Thank you, Commander Sheppard for making an incredible amount of our days in the last few years.

    The checkpoints aren't that well-placed, which may lead to some frustration along the way... that's the only complaint we have. What we actually want to say is that Max Payne 3 is a fantastic shooter with an unseen filmic flair that even holds up nicely in comparison with Uncharted 3. And that's saying A LOT.

    DiRT 3 is the best part in the DiRT franchise. The game contains a lot of different disciplines and also Gymkhana and that last one works great. The game does look awesome, the audio and soundtrack are great and the gameplay is sublime!

    The king is back! This latest iteration of the popular NBA 2K franchise improves on its predecessor in almost every way and is therefore undoubtedly the best basketball game so far.

    Within a year Ubisoft delivers one new great game to the Assassin's Creed franchise that takes place in Rome. A new story, more side-missions, a multiplayer. It's also the best looking Assassin's Creed game so far. Must buy.

    We actually find it hard to come up with any complaints about Motorstorm RC. On the contrary, we feel like we've stolen this game. An extremely low price for a visually strong and extremely addictive racing game? You won't find a better deal anywhere soon.

    This PlayStation Network game is the comeback of Lara Croft. The gameplay is great, the graphics are fantastic and the sound is pretty cool. You can play the whole game in co-op (offline) and in the future online. Must have!

    Heavy Rain isn’t a game and Heavy Rain isn’t a film, but it’s something in between. It has a storyline with 23 different endings with the main purpose to give every player a different experience. With every choice you make, the storyline will be going a specific way. The choices are that important, that the most of you will play a totally different game then the other. A new kind of game with great gameplay, brilliant graphics and superb audio. A must have!

    DJ Hero 2 is at every part better than the previous one. The gameplay is still the same, but the music got more variety. One of the new features is that there are many more mix-techniques and the online section of the game is way better than before. A great music game.

    Ed Boon delivers with Mortal Kombat one of the best games in the franchise. The gameplay is almost perfect and the fatalities are fantastic, the length of the game is almost infinite and everyone can play it. Mortal Kombat is currently the best fighting game you can get.

    One of the best games of 2009. It has a great but short single-player. The multiplayer is brilliant and the new mode, Spec-ops is a great advantage of the series. Probably the best first person shooter of 2009.

    EA does it again and overthrows its previous masterpiece by crafting an even greater ice hockey experience. It's not perfect, though: the Be A Legend mode, unlike the rest of the game, does not yet reach its full potential.

    The complete world of Red Dead Redemption has changed to a world full of zombies and undead creatures. The new short singleplayer is great because of the action and the brilliant atmosphere. Every owner of this game can't miss this DLC.

    This game is a sort of Bejeweled with a different kind of gameplay. The fanatic puzzle game players will enjoy this title, but most of the gamers are pretty fast through this game. Not a really bad game, but there are more better and fun puzzle games to get.

    HD Remakes of the first two God of War parts. It’s got the same brilliant gameplay, sound and violence as before. The graphics are a little bit better and if you didn’t play the two parts years ago on the PlayStation 2 or if you’re a Trophy hunter, then this is a great game for you!

    A game that is better than everyone thought. Great gameplay, perfect audio and high quality graphics and also a lot of unlockables. One of the best licensed games ever.

    If not for the irritatingly long loading times, this might well be the best launch title for the PlayStation Vita Sony has in store for us. The feeling of speed still provides a satisfyingly big wow-factor, while the cross-platform options turn this title into a handheld pioneer. A must-have for every Vita-owner.
