    Final Fantasy XIII is probably the RPG of the year and therefore a must have for any RPG-lover. The game is very strong, has beautiful graphics and good voice-acting. Unfortunately after completing this adventure we again have to wait a couple of years for a new part.

    Nearly every issue from last year has been fixed, but it's a shame that some online issues still appear. But even with all the other minor issues found throughout the game, NBA 2K12 is a very solid presentation.

    By making The Beatles: Rock Band, Harmonix did a really good job and the game is certainly good in all ways. Unfortunately the few new things aren't all useful and the game doesn't support the other Rock Band content. However, this game is full of Flower Power and therefore you really need to play this at least once in your life.

    Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is quite the handsome collection for gamers who haven't experienced Borderlands before. It's smoother, better and more beautiful than its predecessors on the older generation.

    Everything that Michael Jordan touches, turns into gold. NBA 2K11 is the best game of its kind because of all the improvements that Visual Concepts has added.

    Advanced Warfare is the best Call of Duty in years. Kevin Spacey is brilliant and the multiplayer is just smooth. The best shooter of 2014.

    Darksiders brings you everything you expect. A beautiful post apocalyptic world combined with excellent audio and a real cool gameplay, deserves nothing less than a high score.

    Need for Speed Shift doesn’t only provide a great shift within the NFS-franchise. In fact, the game is also an extremely good racing game.

    Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition offers the same solid game experience, but as the DLC's that are included are not brilliant, we wonder if the the astonishing graphics is worth the big price difference with the original one.

    Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits is actually a bit too expensive for the relatively small track list. You might wonder why it's a totally new game in stead of downloadable songs, furthermore it's all too similar to Guitar Hero: World Tour. However de game is still strong and once you start to play you don't want to stop singing or drumming, because these new features are now possible.

    Madden NFL 10 is the best American Football game out there and knows to improve on it's predecessor. It's clear to say that this is a must have for all the fans of the sport.

    Who would have thought that playing a dictator could be so much fun. You are the one in control of developing your own island. New dictators might be a bit intimidated by the amount of options the game offers, but fortunately you can get a little help if you want. Because you're able to create your own playstyle, Tropico 4 will be able to keep you busy for many hours.

    With Rocket Riot, Codeglue has shown us a unique stile which combines the past with the present. Because the controls are so easy and the game is filled with action, everyone can enjoy this title for hours. Therefore Rocket Riot is one of the arcade games, that every Xbox user should have tried!

    For a very low price you will be able to get four classic games that will make the older gamers very nostalgic. The old Mario games are as great as ever, even after almost 25 years.

    For the first time in the series, Episode 4 offers you a look behind the scenes of Fabletown. With Bigby still recovering from his wounds, he keeps on searching for the Crooked Man, and the tension this generates makes this one of the strongest episodes yet.

    Really, it's amazing again. Football Manager 2013 was already nearly perfect, but this one seems to be perfect and more realistic. Although there's the fear of getting too realistic; making the game less fun. That's a warming for next year, because this year it's luckily still alright.

    Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut is an amazing horror game. The ambiance is perfect. It will get you hooked and will not leave you alone until you figure out what is happening.

    The Ratchet & Clank trilogy are wound up with dignity with A Crack in Time. This is the best platform shooter you can wish for at the moment, all because of the new features.

    It's the weakest game in the franchise, but luckily it's good enough to make it worth the purchase. Golden Abyss is still a great game - the adventures of Nathan Drake will never bore you. Ever!

    A New Day starts an adventure that we don't want to finish. The engaging story, brutal action and beautiful comic style make us eager for more and more.

    Skullgirls is a fun and surprisingly deep fighter with cute audiovisuals and great gameplay. Its only flaw is the lack of a command-list.
