    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.

    Fire Emblem Fates Revelation is exactly what DLC is supposed to be like. It adds a whole new perspective on the story of Fire Emblem Fates and feels essential to understand the full plot. Definitely a must-have if you want to know all the ins and outs.

    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.

    Journey is still the amazing experience it was in 2012, with upgraded graphics. If you haven't played it yet this is a must play title to have, simply because it offers a unique experience not quite like anything else.

    Mario Maker is a must play for Wii U owners, whether they just want to make or play Mario levels. The interface is inviting and straightforward, and the way the game introduces its possibilities is amazing.

    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.

    Battlefield 1 is one of the best entries in the Battlefield franchise. The immersion of the single-player and the sublime multiplayer modes are a joy to play for hours to come.

    Forza Horizon 3 is as much fun as it is beautiful. Australia steals the show with its diverse landscapes, while there are loads of events to take part in. With minor improvements here and there, Forza Horizon 3 is a worthy successor to the older games.

    The Nathan Drake Collection is the best HD remake from 2015. Anyone who has got a PS4 and likes adventure should run to their nearest game store and buy this game. It's definitely worth your money.

    Pokémon Sun is simply amazing. Alola is beautiful and offers a balanced mix between old and new Pokémon. The many new features help keep the gameplay fresh and there's no need for HM slaves anymore.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Overwatch is an extremely polished Hero Shooter and looks absolutely lovely. Teamwork is important and encourages interaction with your teammates. With Overwatch, Blizzard has delivered another masterpiece.
