    A game you cannot miss now if you missed it the first time. The visual evolution is worth highlighting, but it still is an outstanding title in every other aspect.

    It's as strong as always, but you can feel this generation is coming to an end, and its really hard to make a significant evolution. In any case, it perfect for any basketball fan.

    Even though the 'freemium' model might not please everyone, it does work and let the player choose whether he wants some extra modes or not. When it comes to gameplay, it's as good as always, and guarantees many hours of fun.

    This new edition of Dragon Quest is with no doubt one of the best RPG titles up to date in the console portfolio. Despite that it is basically an old title, with a very classic game system that doesn't take advantage of the Nintendo DS possibilities, and an improved yet retro technical aspect, nonetheless it was and remains being a milestone in the RPG genre history.

    It is not "Fable" and it does not try to be, it just takes these elements and combines them with some others to create very fun videogame, with its own personality and a well-achieved and told story, perfectly integrated with its gameplay. A more than recommended buy.

    Star Ocean: Second Evolution is, undoubtedly, a better title than its predecessor from a technical standpoint and also in its gameplay and story. It is an excellent role-playing title, suitable both for newcomers who want to know the series as for classic fans of the series that, although many years have passed since the original's release, won't disappoint Square Enix classic RPGs followers.

    Shift 2: Unleashed builds upon the firm base of the previous game and offers more features and better features. More tracks, vehicles and multiplayer options thanks to the inclusion of the social system Autolog, and also better physics and simulation, which have improved the right way. It is not a perfect simulation experience, but will please most gamers.

    We have liked Resistance 3 a lot and consider it the best entry in the series. Although the campaign doesn't mantain the same level of engagement through the whole story, it is very enjoyable, varied and full of intense moments. The game makes a great use of sci-fy weapons to create interesting situations, and its online multiplayer has a lot of options. One of the best shooters of the year.

    A game which is not for everyone, but will inspire many with its great atmosphere and thrilling story. This PC version has improved visuals but lacks a better optimization. The controls have also been adapted decently, but with room for improvement.

    It is not a revolution for sandbox games, but it makes the most of their possibilities to make crazy and fun things, in an open world full of cool and bizarre features. Those who are looking for a compelling story should consider other games, but Saints Row: The Third is the best in providing crazy fun.

    An addictive game that might seem impossible to beat at first, but has a very adjusted difficulty level and becomes very challenging as soon as you get used to the controls. It doesn't include all the circuits of the Wii version, and doesn't have a multiplayer mode, but it is masterfully designed.

    Starhawk is not exactly a sequel to Warhack, but it can repeat its success and please fans of Warhawk and also many new players. It is not that good as a single-player game as it is too short, but its multiplayer is great and recommended for those who love something new.

    A game that shines, but needs to be quickly polished for Funcom to establish it as one of the great games of the genre. Its atmosphere, story, character progression system and mission design have captivated us, but we fear that the lack of content and the errors it has can cut its potential. If Funcom can achieve a good pace of updates, with new content and enhancements, this secret world can live for years.

    A pleasant surprise and quite an special app, with solid gameplay and a very addictive mechanic. Once you've built the first bridge you will be captivated. Maybe it is a bit scarce in content and lacks some more options -like weather effects-, but it is still a great game.

    Tales of Graces F is a great classic Japanese RPG game, featuring a great story, charming characters, many hours of gameplay, a brilliant battle system and many, many things to do. We need to mention that being only in English might be a problem for those unfamiliar with the language, but if you're a fan of the RPGs, you can't miss it.

    From the very first video, you already knew whether Rain was for you or not. It's short and simple. Actually, it's always trying to tell you what to do next, preventing you from even attempting to think how to solve a situation, which is something hard to understand and annoying. But if you can forgive this, you'll live an experience that no other game can give you.
