    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.

    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.

    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.

    This game plays well but there's a big lack of innovation. The multiplayer has shown some improvements but furthermore the game is exactly like you would expect.

    The king of basketball games delivers pure quality, as it did on the other consoles. Its Wii U-exclusive may not warrant a purchase, but the great experience and fluent controls certainly do.

    NBA Jam: OFE is so much better than it's predecessor. Seeing how well this game is constructed, we don't even know why the first game was ever launched. This game is pure fun, especially with friends. A great substitute for when there's no basketball on TV.

    This game is even better on handheld than on console. Sonic looks amazing.

    Tekken 6 is the best fighting game in the genre you can wish for now. However the Scenario Campaign is a little bit disappointing, Tekken is the usual experience: blood, sweat and tears!

    After two successful episodes, you truly start to care for Lee and Clementine. The events of Long Road Ahead are therefore hard to process but make an even greater impact than any of the other episodes. This is without a doubt the best episode so far!

    RAGE is an ambitious game that brings you a destroyed open world you want to keep coming back to. It's a shame this game suffers from occasional unloaded textures and a longer single player adventure would have been nice. The sheer amount of fun you will find in RAGE however, make this game a must buy for fans of the better shooter and role-playing games.

    Fallout: New Vegas has a good storyline and adds a lot of side-quests that keeps you going. It's great to explore the world and we can't wait for the first downloadable content.

    High Moon studios has delivered a good third-person shooter that uses a lot of recognisable elements from the original 80's cartoon. The game is suitable for everyone, so people that are new to the franchise will have just as much fun as hardcore transformers fans.
