    Shovel Knight is a great challenging game, not only for retro gamers but for anyone who loves platform games. With brilliant level design and music, Shovel Knight is THE game to download on the Nintendo eShop.

    Amnesia: The Dark Descent is the scariest game in years. You'll get an extremely creepy vibe from the castle and all of the mysterious things that are happening there. The voice overs and the ending of the game aren't great, but this shouldn't bother anyone seeing how you'll be extremely scared when you play this on your own in a dark room.

    Ubisoft made a great decision in taking the Anno franchise to the future. Trading, building, doing quests, there is a ton of stuff to do. It's very interesting to see the environment play a big role and the effects of polution add a great new gameplay concept. Anno 2070 really is all about building and trading and won't be fulfilling for people that are looking to rage war.

    ModNation Racers combines the best parts of LittleBigPlanet and Mario Kart and uses them to lift the Play, Create & Share principle to a higher level.

    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.

    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.

    Even with some tiny flaws this game is truly amazing. The choices you make really impact the storyline, making you feel more involved. inFamous 2 improves on almost every level so we'd definitely recommend buying it.

    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.

    Undead Nightmare is probably the best thing that could happen to Red Dead Redemption. This zombie invasion shows us another side of the Wild West and that side is simply beautiful.

    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.

    With Guitar Hero 5 Neversoft almost succeeded in creating the perfect music game. Only some small mistakes prevent this game from scoring the complete 100 points. Still this game is the best music game at this moment.

    Creative Assembly promised us horror and the old school Alien setting. Well, they delivered. The game looks and plays awesome and makes you feel scared sh.tless every minute of the way.

    Limbo is without a doubt one of the best Xbox Live Arcade games and can be recommended to everyone. You'll reach the end in about four hours and that's pretty much the only down-point of this unique game.

    Trials HD is a very entertaining and addictive game. It's suitable for everyone, but offers a challenge to even the best. You will get a huge game for a good price.

    L.A. Noire shows us that not every sandbox game has to be about killing prostitutes. This Complete Edition for the PC shows up a bit late to the party but that doesn't make it any less fun. The interrogations are a lot of fun and you'll feel like a true Sherlock Holmes at times. It's just a shame that the replay value is very low.

    Velocity 2X is absolutely worth playing. This game offers the lovely combination of platforming, space shooting and puzzling. There are a few flaws, but for the price that this game costs, we won’t even mention them.

    3D After Burner II is an old game but polished to something brand new. With all the customisation options and the colourful levels, 3D After Burner II is something every arcade fan has to play.

    Total War: Shogun 2 combines the best aspects from every Total War game ever made. It's less complicated than Empire yet it brings more to the table. Creative Assembly has shown that, even after ten years, this franchise is only getting better.

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is a great shooter and ranks among the top of this time. The multiplayer is reason enough to buy this great game.

    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.

    FIFA 10 is is a great game and a really good improvement on FIFA 09. Other soccer games should take an example from this game.

    Normally you just want to avoid an asylum. But Batman's Arkham Asylum is one you just want to explore. Never before was it so much fun to fight with a bat!

    Never Alone is a fantastic game which offers insight in the Alaskan culture and folklore. The game has a very nice style and enjoyable gameplay, however it is very short. Still this is a must buy for anyone.

    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.

    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.

    Did you think you had seen it all in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare? Get ready then for this war! Don't think Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be a revolution, it's more like an evolution if you compare this to the first Modern Warfare game.

    NHL 10 is a very good game, but it misses big innovations. For the people who don’t own a ice-hockey game, this game is definitely worth buying. But for the people that already own NHL 09, this is only a small upgrade and not really worth the money.

    Codemasters puts you yet again behind the wheel of a great game. There are a lot of extra options that give F1 2011 some extra depth, making this one of the best racing games of the year. Some people might however have a lot of trouble with the high difficulty of the AI.
