    This is a great Tekken game that offers a lot of online and offline modes which will keep you entertained for months. Furthermore there are many characters to choose from and with them you can do tons of combinations during the fights.

    Hitman: Absolution is compelling to passionate fans as well as new players. It is the assassination game everyone was waiting for. Move over Corvo and Connor, it is Agent 47's time to stand on top.

    Like a real party Forza Horizon can entertain you for hours. The game offers variation in both the singleplayer and multiplayer modes and looks fantastic. The soundtrack just completes it. Despite a few flaws the franchise took a turn that proves to be good for newcomers, but also great for the fanbase. You can't miss out on this party.

    A beautiful, engaging open world, freedom in gameplay, love for stealth elements and more than enough to do; Far Cry 3 has it all. It's an open world shooter at its finest.

    Where other LEGO games already did really well, this game tops all of them. The story is told like it is, but with a lot of funny moments. The game looks great and the open world it offers only adds to the fun. This is truly one brick to rule them all.

    This is the best Wii U launch title. Trine 2 contains a lot of fun and is a must buy title. Simple as that. It's just magical.

    Fire Emblem: Awakening is not just the best strategy game at the moment, it is also the most challenging 3DS game yet. It takes some time to learn the ropes, but when you take some time to invest in the world of Fire Emblem: Awakening, you won't leave until you saved the land of Ylisse.

    With Luigi's Mansion 2 Nintendo adds a brilliant game to the 3DS. Luigi got through the first part with the vacuum cleaner well and delivered a good second part.

    Although Anomaly 2 is a sequel there isn't anything else quite like it. The game still feels fresh and its multiplayer is a blast to play. We therefore would recommend the game to everyone.

    Donkey Kong Country Returns was a great game on the Wii and it is a great game on the 3DS. Even if you have already played the Wii version, this 3D remake is amazing value for your money.

    In the developer of The Last of Us, Naughty Dog, we find the king of action-adventurers more and more. Its last game brings us storytelling that is as endearing and emotional as it gets. A definite must-play for every gamer worldwide.

    With a fun story and a great setting, Assault on Dragon Keep is Borderlands 2’s best DLC yet.

    Call them your slaves, minions, little kids or whatever. Pikmin are there to help you. Together you will explore a beautiful game. The best Wii U title to get, its got a huge x-factor.

    Another amazing game in the Rayman universe. The game offers fun for all and a lot of variation. The style looks great and the game suffers from almost no flaws.

    The only thing we don’t like about Rain is its playtime: it’s too short, we want to enjoy more of this game. A stunning display of story, with a magnificent soundtrack and we haven’t even talked about the gameplay yet. Puzzling in the rain has never been this beautiful and good.

    After the not-so-original New Super Mario Bros games, it is lovely to see Mario and his friends in an adventure that is truly worth playing. The vast range of power-ups is great, especially the catsuit which makes Mario not only adorable looking, but also handy. His claws are an awesome extra to fight the fun, new enemies. It is a pity that this game is a bit easy, but you can challenge yourself by playing co-op with annoying friends or go on a green star hunt. It's not Mario Galaxy, but very surprising and of very high quality like we know of that plumber.

    Like an insane stunt pilot in the Red Bull Air Race, World of Warplanes manages to leave an excellent impression. But Wargaming has to keep proving themselves in the future if they want us to remain impressed. It's easy to find great satisfaction, however, when you roam the game's skies with Ride of the Valkyries on the background, while you're bringing death and destruction in your own personal aircraft.

    With the next-gen consoles the public looks more alive than ever. The feeling of a ‘twelfth man’ behind you is overwhelming. A steady home victory for FIFA.

    Rocksmith 2014 is an amazing game for beginners and guitar pro's alike. The game offers a lot of variation, a lot of modes and is one of the best music games on the market.

    The PlayStation 4 edition of Rayman Legends is simply marvelous. The current-gen version was already a fantastic game and the next-gen is even better. More options, faster en more beautiful. Everything you might have wanted in the current-gen version is now available on next-gen.

    Dark Souls II is a sequel done right in every way. There is more to explore, mechanics from the first game are polished and further expanded. Fans will be happy to know that the game is still challenging and at the same time it is more accessible for newcomers.

    The second episode of Burial At Sea brings a fitting end to the BioShock Infinite storyline while introducing some new gameplay elements. Sneaking around as Elizabeth gives Rapture a new creepy atmosphere and it fits the character very well. We couldn't have asked more for our (probably) last trip to Rapture.

    In comparison with the current-gen of consoles, Battlefield 4 is the shooter for the next-gen consoles. The graphics are even more stunning than before and there’s an ability to play with more gamers on the console. Choose the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One-version above the current-gen versions.

    The little pink dude does it again. A whole new game with a story mode and two other modes on the side to enjoy. Everything look and feels wonderful. This is a must have on the 3DS.

    Ubisoft did it again. After Child of Light there is again a unique downloadable game. Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a compelling puzzle game, a must have. It has a funny look but it's actually a game with many layers.

    It is too bad baseball is not very popular in Holland, because Out of the Park Baseball 15 is ten times better than it's predecessor.

    Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition is the definitive version of a great game. It builds on popular games like Metroid and does this in a unique, colorfull style. If you skipped the original one, this is a great way to experience it.
