    Kojima does it again. He delivers a game on the PSP that is one of the best PSP games in years. It has great gameplay, co-operative features and the UMD disc has an unbelievable amount of content. If you like Metal Gear Solid and good PSP games, than Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is the game to have!

    Joe Danger is one of the best PlayStation Network games. It's got very funny gameplay in a 2D environment. You can race on many different tracks and do the craziest stunts. Besides of the singleplayer the game also has a level editor and the possibility to play one of the custom made levels in multiplayer.

    The first part was a kind of repetitive, but in this part the gameplay isn’t repetitive and a lot better. Visually it looks stunning and the voice-acting and music is brilliant. Another game that can be put on the list of best games of 2009.

    EA proves yet again that FIFA is the best football game series. This year's installment tops the previous one with an new physics engine, improved defensive mechanics and a more elaborate career mode. Kudos!

    The gameplay of the PixelJunk games combined with the audio of Flower and the graphical style of Trine is game like The Undergarden you gonna get. A good and very peaceful PlayStation Network title that is relaxed to play. One of the best PSN games at the moment.

    Lumines as we've come to know and love it. Once a PSP system seller, now a Vita seller. Some things will never change (even though we would have liked some more content!).

    Yakuza 4 has one hell of a story and the gameplay is better than before. You can also play with four characters instead of one and the game did get improvements on almost every aspect. The Yakuza games are for a small group of gamers, but it's a great one.

    This is the Need for Speed that returns to the roots of the franchise with awesome police chases, fine graphics and a fantastic soundtrack. The new Autolog is a great feature which is meant to be used to compare your achievements with your friends. One of the best Need for Speed game in years.

    NBA 2K11 is a fantastic game, there is nothing wrong about the game and it contains all the content like last year. One new addition is the Michael Jordan Challenge, where you can play a few of the most important moments in his career. Every basketball fan has to buy this game.

    Super Street Fighter IV is more of the same. It has ten new fighters, an Endless Battle mode and a Replay Channel. Although it is more of an expansion to Street Fighter IV, you can still see it as a good game. Every fan of the franchise must buy this part,because it has a lot of extra features that makes it worth buying.

    Both ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are fantastic games which will be remembered as such for many years to come. If you haven't played them before, you owe it to yourself to pick this collection up as soon as possible.

    Crysis 2 is a fantastic game. The graphics are fabulous and the gameplay is great. With Crysis 2 you get a fantastic single-player and a great multi-player. The sequel of Crysis works perfect on the PlayStation 3 and is for every shooter fan an instant buy.

    Another great production form Guerrilla Games. The story continues and you will have this time more possibilities to kill the Helghast and there are also new gameplay elements, like the jetpack for example. This is one hell of a shooter with a nice singleplayer and a great multiplayer!

    This game contains a lot of new elements. The story mode is fun to play alone or with friends and the new gadgets you can use are pretty cool. De level-editor is now even more nice to work with and the possibilities are endless.

    Bayonetta on the PS3 has a great combat system, a nice story, good gameplay, pretty good graphics and a chick to play with. There are two points that aren’t good and those are the loading screens and frame drops. If you don’t care about those points, than Bayonetta is one of the better games of 2010. If you do care about those points, then just see through them and you’ll also see a brilliant game.

    This new Castlevania is taking a completely new path than the previous parts. The story is different because this time it goes about the earth and the heavens. The gameplay is very good and that also counts for the graphics. The soundtrack is as usual great. This game is a reboot of the franchise and it's a great one!

    This new game is a lot better than the part that came out last year. There are now more possibilities to walk around in the Hidden Leaf Village and also in other parts of the Naruto world. This game is by far the best part ever in the franchise, so this is great material for the fans.

    This game is simple, but it has addictive gameplay. You can also play this game with the PlayStation Move and with friends. The iPhone version was already great and this PlayStation 3 version is also great. One of the best PlayStation Network games you can get.

    Rockstar does it again. Delivering a great game we mean. Red Dead Redemption has the gameplay of Grand Theft Auto, but situated in the Wild West. Go with John Marston through an exciting adventure in a great environment full of details. Besides some collision detection problems and many glitches/bugs Red Dead Redemption is a great game.

    This game is everything you would expect from an Uncharted game. It's a superb action adventure title, highly entertaining and almost without flaws. The unique features of the PlayStation Vita are the icing on the cake, fitting nicely into Nathan Drake's newest adventure. Now, if only the story had been a little bit less predictable.

    Extraordinary good PSN game. Shoot many, many zombies dead with a lot of different weapons with the classic top down view. If you want to play one of the best PlayStation Network games of the year, than this is a great one.

    BioShock 2 is the sequel of the fantastic BioShock and this time you play a prototype Big Daddy, a few years after the original BioShock. The gameplay isn't much improved and the graphics are a little bit the same. It sounds negative, but the game is at every perspective of high quality, thanks to the new plasmids and weapons.

    The new adventure of Cole McGrath is even better than the previous one. The new powers, abilities and the possibility to make your own missions and share them with the world, works great. A great PlayStation 3 exclusive.

    Top Spin 4 is one of the best tennis games on the PlayStation 3. The game contains a lot of different modes and it plays really nice. Besides that it's a bit a shame the game doesn't offer enough different tennis players.

    ModNation Racers is on the PlayStation 3 a great game, but on the PlayStation Portable it's possibly even better. The game has great customize options, a lot of gameplay, great graphics and many more positive elements. Only one annoying thing is the loading times, those are also on this handheld way too long.
