    Once again, the best basketball simulator, beating its only rival –itself. Better animations and some new additions to the gameplay move the game one step forward, even though it isn't any revolution for the series. For the Spanish-speaking players: for the first time NBA 2K offers Spanish commentators, so good news for you!

    Spy Mouse is, above all, a fast and direct game that is as good as we come to expect from Firemint. It is enjoyable, and its imaginative levels pushes us to keep playing to the end. Once all the levels have been surpassed, the game engages you to play them again to earn all the medals, and there is were Spy Mouse excels.

    A natural evolution of the series that sets the groundwork for new episodes. There are no huge innovations, but it sticks to its core development and Halo fans will love it.

    Very few times you can say this about a downloadable content, but with ten hours of one-player campaign, a completely new story, refined graphics and sound and more multiplayer modes, Undead Nightmare is worth every cent it costs.

    Dragon Quest is synonymous with classic Japanese RPG, and this ninth entry in the series keeps itself loyal to that spirit. But its multiplayer focus brings new features, which result in obvious improvements but also in some flaws.

    Ultimately, Burnout Paradise is a fantastic racing game that no devotee of the genre should let escape him. It has taken a year to arrive, but it delivers the most complete edition of the game, with a graphic engine excellently adapted to PC, and with a user community ready to squeeze the most of this Criterion work.

    DiRT 3 is again a great offroad racing game, midway between arcade and simulation and fully customizable by the player. It improves its graphics and controls, and also adds more assitance to less experimented users. The addition of Gymkhanas is good, although it may not convince those users who just want to race in tracks. Overall, a great sequel that is still the best in what it does.

    It not only is a great game, but also original, addictive and comes with tons of content. If you like dungeon crawlers and you're looking for something different, Crypt of the NecroDancer is a safe bet that adds an unique musical touch to the formula.

    This is a masterpiece of a genre whose essence has been lost because of the "casualization" of the video games. It's like going back to the 8/16 bits, when the experience was the most important thing. There's only two things we can complain about: not being localized (into Spanish) and not being ready for HDTV's. If this is not a problem for you, then it scores a perfect 10.

    Tearaway proudly shows off what Vita is capable of, and also proves that LittleBigPlanet was not pure luck. There's a lot of talent in Media Molecule, and we can say they've done it again. Now it's up to you, players, to support a game as good as this one.

    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.
