    Super Mario Galaxy 2 entertains, challenges and satisfies but, overall, achieves to put a smile in the player's mouth from the beginning, in a travel through fantasy worlds.

    It's the best and the biggest sandbox ever made. The story and how it's told, the deep world around us where there's always something happening, and the amount of content and things to do, make it the perfect closure for this generation.

    Rockstar's masterpiece is better than ever. It's up to you to decide whether it's worth your time and money if you've already played it, but if you haven't, we can tell you it is.

    It is not as surprising as Arkham Asylum, but it improves upon it, updating and enhancing all its elements, and also allowing us to feel like Batman patrolling the troubled streets of Gotham. Although with few new features in gameplay, it is the best Batman game ever made, and one of the best games of this year.

    LittleBigPlanet is already a milestone. Never before had a game have such a user content creation focus, nor had offered them such solid yet simple to use tools for achieving it. This risky Sony project has survived and surpassed the hype, becoming a very great game.

    This is the most ambitious project Naughty Dog has made so far. It's not a new genre, but it mixes up some of them to bring something unique. It's got nothing to do with Uncharted apart from the look some images may show, but still is one of the best games on PlayStation 3.

    No matter if on PS3 or on PS4, The Last of Us is an experience you have to live. Obviously, if you have the chance of doing it with an improved version, with better visuals, extras and so on, the choice seems clear.

    It starts slowly and at first might seem like an expansion, but it has many epic moments waiting for you. It is not the perfect game, but comes dangerously close.

    • 94 Critic Score
    A must-have, one of the games of the year, that gives meaning to this world of entertainment. We would have loved to see the same audiovisual ambition applied to the gameplay, or at least, some kind of attempt of bringing something new to it. Still, this is one of the masterpieces of the genre that you cannot miss.

    Street Fighter IV is a very welcomed arrival of a classic that returns stronger than ever. Its adaptation to current times, making the most of the current graphical capacity to enhance the experience without taking unnecessary risks, and keeping the same gameplay which made it triumph, yet with interesting changes, is an example of how a franchise can be resurrected and led to present without losing its essence.

    They have known how to squeeze the most of Nintendo DS, taking advantage of its strong point to make yes, a canonical GTA, but with unique elements which give it freshness. The use of the screens shows us how to combine a classic, well known gameplay, with the unique capabilities of the Nintedo DS. And they have not forgotten what makes a GTA feel special, which just make us want more.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Unmatched combination of simplicity and fun in one of the best games in history, which again demonstrates that after 30 years its gameplay is still strong enough to engage us in our new consoles.

    Minecraft is one of those games that everyone must try. You can stop playing for a month and return, to discover how many new features there are for us to try. A game that makes you feel like a child again, and one of the most remarkable ones in the last few years.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 98 Critic Score
    Except for the language (as long as you don't speak English), we can't really find anything negative about it. It's one of the best RGPs we've ever played, and it'll make worth it every penny you've spent on the handheld.

    Definitely, no videogame fan should let Fallout 3 escape. There are so many things you can do, places you can explore and situations to experiment, that regardless the many times we could say this is a superb title, an instant classic, there is no better way to understand the reason for such praise than to get lost in the ruinous Washington D.C. region.

    Epic, knowing the success of the first installment, has not taken any risk at all and gives us what they know we are going to like: an extraordinary pure action experience, outstanding in all technical and gameplay aspects and, above all, is hugely entertaining and guarantees hundreds of hours of adrenaline rush thanks to its campaign mode and online play through Xbox Live.

    Mass Effect 3 greatly closes a trilogy that will be remembered for years. Although it is more action-focused than the previous game, the game will please fans of the series and is a serious candidate to be the game of the year.

    A must-have that demonstrates that Zelda is still in great form, and celebrates in the best possible way the 25th birthday of the series. As each Zelda game, it is outstanding. Not only one of the best games in Wii history, but also one of the best in the generation.

    Sometimes touted as overestimated, Braid hasn't aged at all. It is such a recommendable game for PlayStation 3 users as it was for the others systems at the time, and hasn't lost its freshness and originality.

    It doesn't revolutionize the formula, but innovates on it enough to become again a game that engages you from the very beginning.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 96 Critic Score
    The most solid game in the series and also a materpiece of storytelling, which raises again the bar of visual quality in consoles. It adds new elements to its gameplay to avoid aging, and provides a great multiplayer mode offering tons of options. A must-have for PS3 owners and one of the best games of the year.

    Ultimately, Chrono Trigger is a good classic, as enjoyable today as it was years ago. It has not aged badly, and in fact, it can bring some new fresh features to players who didn't know it, in spite of the later titles they might have played.

    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    You can say its not very innovative in comparison with the original game. But this is a minor thing if we take into account that this is without doubt the best game in the genre, and a great achievement if we consider the great struggle with its rival, that doesn't lose grip.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    A different HD update. The rest of them take games that were great at their time, but now have been surpassed by their sequels or new fanchises. But Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are still masterpieces by today standards, as are such special games that would stand among the best of the year if made from scratch and released today. A must-have for all who consider themselves passionate about videogames.

    They are three games of indisputable quality, adding 80 hours of gameplay, in a single disc and with some new features.. This is hands down one of the most interesting packages in the market, and a good example of the good health of some classics of the past generation.

    Halo: Reach again sets the benchmark of how to make a combat game, be it first or third person. Its freedom to be played and approach any situation makes it a unique game. Its only flaw is the duration of the story, a bit shot, although many will feel compensated by its overwhelming multiplayer mode.

    It is the most complete entry in the series, and its campaign is probably the best. It makes some slight changes in the combat mechanics, making them more dynamic, and has great new weapons. The three online modes are greatly addictive, and the revamped Horde mode and Beast modes are especially remarkable. It won't convince those who didn't enjoy the two previous games, but will please those who did.

    Beautiful, fun, addictive and with a lot of care put into it, Link comes back with another great game for 3DS, closing an almost perfect year for the handheld.

    2K Sports raised the bar very high last year, and we though it would be very difficult for another entry to surpass it. Fortunately we were mistaken, and it improves almost everything from the previous game, with new and revamped game modes, basketball legends and more fun matches. A must-have.

    Mark of the Ninja is a very recommended choice on Xbox Live Arcade –it's one of those games that wouldn't exist without digital distribution. Level and artistic design are definitely worth mentioning. If you're ok with its price (1.200 MSP), we're sure you'll enjoy being a ninja.

    Years have passed since the first game, and Dead Space 2 doesn't surprise us as much as the original did, but it has reinvented itself very well.

    It is not the best Mario game in the last years, but it is great as a portable Super Mario, one of the best portable games ever starred by Mario. Despite this, we think this game could have been even better, as Nintendo has always achieved extreme levels of quality will its major series. Anyway, a must-have for 3DS owners.
