    Dark Souls is definitely an absolutely great game, and it proves you can attract a big audience by offering an unusually high difficulty. New content, a high-res fixes and some other improvements are the reasons why this version is the best of the three available. It's not the best PC adaptation, but it is an experience worth playing.

    Metroid: Other M is a constant homage to the series. Its classic gameplay has been revamped and is more action focused, but it retains parts of its past. The game has achieved to turn Samus into a more human character, and the story is much more important this time, which is a good thing.

    Exactly what we expected. The campaign struggles to surprise, but the multiplayer and zombie modes have been greatly improved, and they are the ones to credit for making it an outstanding title. Some people will complain about the lack of evolution, while some others will enjoy the hundreds of hours of fun it offers.

    Offers one of the best single player campaigns we've seen in years. Entertaining, different, intense, spectacular and with really memorable moments. It sticks to the original series, something fans will definitely love. It offers everything Transformers fans have always asked for. Its multiplayer modes won't be consider revolutionary, but it is a must-have, above all if you're a fan of the series.

    A gift for fans of both series and fighting games players. A deep, technical and solid game that integrates perfectly the mechanics of both series. A huge piece of work that is a dream come true for those fans who have been expecting a crossover like this for years.

    This is a game you cannot miss on iPad, and a very interesting one on iPhone. We have to wait and see how it works on other platforms, but if you own an Apple's tablet, it's a title you should really take into account.

    Not an evolution of the series but a step forward indeed. Good for playing "seriously" or just for fun, with a solid base that allows the developers to include crazy ideas that actually fit in the game. The track list is, as well, as good as we expected.

    If Patapon was surprising because of the freshness and charm of the characters, Patapon 2 completely lacks that, which can lead to think that this is simply the same game, with some minor touches to deliver and strengthen the console portfolio. Nothing further from the truth, this title can be compared with any blockbuster on the PSP.

    Perhaps the guys at Treyarch haven't surpassed its predecessor's bar, but it really was too high. Nevertheless, this does not mean Call of Duty: World at War is not a very good game, it is indeed one of the best of its genre, and no shooter fan should miss it.

    Polyphony Digital keeps polishing its series, with a game that becomes more accessible, but still very deep. There's room for improvement, but as far as PS3 goes, Gran Turismo 6 proves that your "old" console still has a lot to give.

    It still is one of the best hack & slash we've seen, even though there are few additions to play it again if you've already beaten it. One way or another, this is the best version of the original Bayonetta.

    BlazBlue for PSVITA is as good as in the rest of consoles. It has a great fighter roster, plenty of game modes, a good story and a captivating visual design. But especially, its gameplay is deep and engaging. If you can buy the PS3 or 360 version we still recommend them as you can use an arcade stick with them, but if you want to fight wherever you are this should be your choice.

    Rage delivers as an action game, with outstanding graphics and gameplay that is sometimes tactic, sometimes savage and always intense. Some players may expect a sandbox, but the game is really a very classic action shooter.

    Fresh air for a genre that needed it. A title with old-school gameplay evolved and adapted to current times with great results. Very fun and charming, sometimes frantic and also free-to-play. If you like non-stop triger-happy action, you should try it.

    It has the same base as the first game, but adds lots of new dangers and interactive mazes that make it more than an expansion. And also something that extends the duration of the game: competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes.

    A must-have, but not for everyone because of its strange story and puzzle gameplay. The story is only for mature audiences, and can only be understood by, and the "cube towers" are not accesible for all players. If you like the genre and the theme this is a game you will remember.

    Sleeping Dogs is a very good sandbox game, even though there are two things some players may complain about: its lack of personality and the lack of innovation.
