    Shovel Knight is one of the best indie games in the last few years, and this is the best edition so far. It also works great with the Switch concept, so if you have the new Nintendo console and you haven't played Shovel Knight yet, you shouldn't miss it.

    Downwell is an incredibly addictive game, and one of the best arcades we've played this year on iDevices.

    With a more complete story, much more varied gameplay and the same virtues than the original, Ezio's adventures in the Renaissance will captivate everyone this time.

    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.

    Although it may look too short in content if judged only as an expansion, Blizzard has done an overwhelming job renewing the World of Warcraft universe.

    Visually stunning and beautiful, full of imagination and charming details, and excellent gameplay-wise, Bayonetta is a dream come true for those who consider Devil May Cry a milestone of the past generation.

    Blizzard has done a great job adapting the UI and the control system to consoles, so now it's up to you how you prefer playing it. Either way, just make sure you don't miss it.

    FIFA 12 enhances the exceptional gameplay of the last years and makes a bold change in defense, which forces players to pass through a process of adaptation (although they can turn on the "classic" defense), but shines like the previous games.

    Mario and Luigi is hands down one of the best RPG in the Nintendo DS, and a fresh experience.

    A great successor to a magnificient game. It reinvents itself and offers an incredible amount of new content that will make the passionate fans of Trials HD smile. The level editor, the multiplayer mode and its huge number of stages, with a very well-made difficulty curve, provide hours of fun.

    As we said at the beginning of the article, there is not much to discuss. If you liked the original, you must buy this downloadable episode. But if you got tired too soon of GTA IV, you should not.

    If you liked FIFA 09 and you keep liking football, you should buy this game without hesitation.

    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.

    The changes Nintendo has made have been little, but important enough to enhance a great experience. Wind Waker still is a wonderful game, and this is the best opportunity to enjoy once again one of the most original adventures of Link.

    The addition to these version are not too relevant, but having such a great game on next-gen should rise no complaints. In case you wonder, Rayman Legends is still great.

    This is undoubtedly one of the best role playing games recently made, and a must buy for PlayStation 2 users, although unfortunately it is in English.

    Its unique atmosphere, intelligent design and challenge for the player makes it one magnificent game in the Xbox 360 portfolio.

    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.

    If you didn't like Assassin's Creed 2, Brotherhood will hardly convince you, but if you are one of the series followers, this game is a great sequel to the previous one. It polishes its mechanics and includes many things to do in the city, and it adds a very enjoyable multiplayer mode which brings some freshness to PS Network and Xbox Live.

    This is a great platforming game which would have turned it the best in years, had it included a difficulty selector.

    Although the game could have been further improved, because PSP is a more powerful machine, it retains the excellent gameplay and narrative of the original.

    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. The main character and its new situation help create interest and surprises, and offer us much more. And, again, it knows how to create that thrilling tension which makes it a great horror game.

    The best choice if you want to enjoy this adventure. It's the very same game, but making the most of it. Adapted to the DualShock 3 and PlayStation Move controllers, Okami is still a game we recommend you to (re)discover.

    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.

    A great game that will keep players in front of the screen for hours, specially the most dedicated and competitive one. It has not evolved too much from its predecessor, but it was hard to do so without ruining its essence.

    Guild Wars 2 has a lot to offer, and on the top of that, it's technically and artistically amazing. It innovates, offers a unbelievable PvP (with a unique combat system), it is localized and doesn't rely on subscription fees. The success of Guild Wars 2 relies on its future, even though right now it's one of the best PC games so far, and it will work for experienced players or casual ones.
