    A great leap for the Pokémon series, but which comes when Nintendo DS is about to be "retired". A very complete and balanced Pokémon game, with more than 700 creatures to catch.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Yet another jewel in Xbox Live. It is a bit stressing to be constantly killed at first, but it quickly becomes challenging and addictive, as if it were a 2D platforms Dark Souls. Its gameplay is delicious and the control is perfect. We would love to see a "metroidvania" game with this design.
