    ModNation Racers is a great game to customize your own characters, carts and tracks. If you liked LittleBigPlanet with its possibilities to create your own stuff, then you will love this game. The possibilities are huge and besides of that, the game contains a lot of fun in the single player and multiplayer. Only the loading times are a bit annoying, but ModNation Racers is still a great game.

    This game is actually three games in one. There are three different characters and all of them have an own perspective at the story. That means, if you play with all three of them, you have a lot of gameplay. The game on its own is pretty nice, the gameplay is nice and that means that this part is a good one in the franchise.

    One of the most beautiful PlayStation Network games. With traditional graphics, an interesting story and really good and fine gameplay. One of the best games on the PSN to buy.

    A game that was a surprise. The gameplay is very variable and you can play this game for more than 25 hours. Strong gameplay, good cut-scenes, and a great offline multiplayer. You can also play the game online, but there aren't a lot of people and the game also has a issue with the loadingscreens as they are way too long.

    This new Dragon Age game is a really good one. The game continues where the original game ended. This time you play with Hawke and multiple team members against the Darkspwan who are back to take over the world. A great Action RPG with a very strong story and gameplay, only the graphics aren't really improved than the previous part and that could have been obviously a lot better.

    The amount of destruction, the very interesting City creator and overall smooth controls make Ridge Racer: Unbounded a great game for fans of the franchise and newcomers alike.

    There's no Remix modus and that's a shame, but this is by no means a gamebreaker. NBA Jam: On Fire is an accessible and incredibly fun game which will stay in your PS3 for a long time.

    It may be a bit too accessible – even an unskilled player can perform the most awesome moves by randomly twiddling the right analog stick – but in the end this is one hell of a football game.

    Modern Warfare 3 still has the great, spectacular gameplay the Call of Duty series has become known for and Survival is a fantastic addition to an already very attractive package. It's just that Infinity Ward doesn't manage to surprise us anymore and graphically... well, let's just say that the engine starts showing its age.

    A cool story draws you into this game and won't let you go until you've seen how it all ends. Beyond that, Binary Domain is a sweet shooter with intuitive controls and a nice, Japanese atmosphere. It's not all gold though, since a lack of in-game depth and a lackluster online multiplayer keep this game from reaching the top.

    Oh sweet originality, how I have missed you. Children of Eden's unique style and exciting gameplay make for a fantastic, spacing experience. The short length and the lack of multiplayer options are the only downsides to an otherwise fantastic game.

    Just Cause 2 is huge. It has a big world to play in, you can drive, fly or sail to your destination and while you are on your way to get there you can do a lot of crazy stunts. This game is fun, really fun, with nice gameplay and graphics. The audio isn’t bad, but could have been better. If you like open world games and fun, then Just Cause 2 is surely a game for you!

    This game is a really good RPG with a few unique possibilities. It’s got a big story, a lot of gameplay and really good audio. Only the graphics aren’t the best we’ve seen on the PlayStation 3 and this version also got annoying frame rate problems. Besides of that, Dragon Age: Origins is a good title.

    The three Sly Cooper games in HD, with Trophies, 3D support and PlayStation Move support for a reasonable price in the stores. This is one of the best PlayStation 2 remakes you can get!

    The previous game was pretty hard and really funny; this is the same case with Dead Rising 2. The gameplay is completely focused on the many ways to kill the zombies and that is simply cool. If you like the franchise, just get this one, you won't be disappointed.

    A great game which is better than the last version. It has even more gameplay and modes in comparison with last year. It also has outstanding and deep gameplay.

    The first Ace Combat game on the PlayStation 3 does not disappoint. On the contrary, Namco Bandai delivers an incredibly satisfying game with an engaging storyline, a lot of variation and most of all: a huge amount of equally spectacular and accessible dogfights.

    Crysis is still a fantastisch First Person Shooter, but it starts to show its age. The disappointing enemy AI, the sometimes problematic framerate and the amount of pop-up make for a game that doesn't score quite as high on console as it did on PC.

    The comeback of the funny duo. The gameplay is pretty much the same as the PlayStation 2 games, but with new features like flying. You can also play with Daxter when he’s transformed into the Dark Daxter. This game is a good PSP game, but the controls could have been better and the game is pretty short.

    This is by far the best game in the franchise. You will have a blast playing through Saints Row: The Third and the so-called funniest game ever delivers on its premise. The graphical mediocrity is a shame, though.

    Even though NFL 12 doesn't exactly outclass its predecessor, It's still better than NFL 11. Improved drafting and the new collision system are fine additions to the NFL legacy, but some more changes would have been nice.

    Fight in a lot of important WWII battles in the UK, Russia and more. A nice flight game with a lot of immersion.

    This HD remake is a perfect opportunity to get the game if you missed the game on the PlayStation 2. A pretty good game with a unique setting and fine gameplay. Even in 2011 the gameplay is great and the HD graphics are looking awesome.

    One of the most popular PlayStation 3 franchises now on the PlayStation Portable. It has everything from the PlayStation 3 versions in another environment. One of the better PSP games of this year.

    MAG
    A pretty good online game. There is no lag, it’s got a lot of players and there are huge maps. If you play this for the first time, you have to learn the basics of the gameplay. Once you’ve got them under control, you can play MAG with a lot of fun. Only the graphics aren’t brilliant, but in this case it doesn’t really matter. Zipper Interactive delivers once again a pretty good game.

    Mini Ninjas is for the little gamers. The game has a lot of great humor and a very interesting visual style. But the missing cooperative option is a great miss.

    SKATE 3 is a very cool game. It has got a lot of challenges in a huge city and fine but difficult gameplay. If you are looking for a realistic skateboard game, then SKATE 3 is the one you must go buy. The humor is great, it plays great, the audio is cool and graphics are nice.

    The gameplay of Vanquish is great, you play as Sam Gideon in a special suit in space. You have to fight against robots and you can do this with a lot of different weapons. You can also slide with your knees from cover to cover and that's pretty cool. Vanquish is a great purchase, but the game is pretty short, too short and it doesn't have any other modi besides the singleplayer.

    The new part in the UFC franchise is a great game, just like the last one. In this new game there is more blood and there are more players. The career mode is once again fantastic, so the fans will love it. Besides all the great points there are also some bad points. The collision detection is a bit poor, the long time to connect to the online multiplayer and online code which is only usable once.

    Mafia II is a game with a great story and atmosphere. The voice-acting is brilliant and the cut-scenes are really nice. But the game doesn't feature a free-roaming option after completion of the story and that's a bit sad. Besides of that it is graphically nice, but with pop-up and bad anti-alising. Mafia II is a great game, but it has some issues.
