    Rayman Origins is the best platform game for the current generation of consoles. The old fashioned gameplay will be loved by many gamers, and the offline co-op mode is outstanding. Hail Rayman!

    Successor of the Skies does not perform well when it comes down to graphics and sound. However, the gameplay is simply great and the leaderboards offer great replay value. If Treasure listens to the feedback and changes a few key points, they can surely make a great follow-up of this game.

    NBA 2K15 might be the best sports game of the year. NBA Live is not a competitor for NBA 2K15, as 2K15 is way better thanks to the great gameplay, thorough MyGM-mode and the phenomenal A.I.

    Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is the definitive version of Dark Souls II. The new enemy placement and lore give veterans a good reason to play through it again and for newcomers it is a great way to experience an already great game.

    Blizzard finally makes its console re-introduction, and an amazing one it is. Diablo III is addictive as always and playing with friends like couch potato's is just plain awesome. Even if you are a singleplayer gamer and you have little interest; don't wait, Diablo III is worth the money.

    Warlords of Draenor brings you back to the roots of World of Warcraft. And it feels good. Draenor looks good and brings a cool new storyline, with lots of new content and of course garrisons. It's too bad the game isn't very challenging and didn't add a new race.

    PixelJunk Shooter is the fourth good PixelJunk game in a row. Playing this game is a pleasure for all senses and therefore it's a shame that the game is so short. Developer Q-Games throws a bull's eye with this PlayStation Network title.

    Bayonetta has become a very good game which offers plenty of diversity. Everything looks good and the game contains a fine dose of humor. Put this game on the list of Kratos and Dante. This game is a must have for everyone!

    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.

    We still think NBA 2K is the best sports franchise around. That being said, Lebron’s Path to Greatness never really impresses. It just didn’t captivate us as much as for instance the MJ game mode of 2011. NBA 2K14 is a great game, sure. But one without a unique selling point. It’s a dunk, just not a slam dunk.

    The people at Freestyle Games definetly gave a new spin to the DJ Hero gameplay. The Freestyle sections are very cool and the new option to sing or rap is great if you don't want to spin the records. A guaranteed party hit!

    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.

    Fall of the Samurai is one of the best expansion packs that we've seen in a long time. The huge amount of new troops, technologies en agents make sure that you'll never get bored with the campaign. There are a lot of new strategic options to discover in both singleplayer and multiplayer.

    UFC Undisputed 3 is easily the best game in the franchise. It's suitable for beginners as well as UFC veterans. Despite a few flaws it's still a must buy for fans of the sport.

    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.

    Jump Start Pet Rescue is an educational game for very young gamers. The game offers enough variation and is therefore a decent title. Parents don't need to hesitate: this is a good game for their son or daughter.

    Criterion Games proved last October that Need for Speed: Most Wanted had some quality race work. But things can always be better. The Wii U version provides all the fun from the original game but in a greater and more complete package.

    Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for 3DS is a great game for people who already know and love the series, but has a steep learning curve for new players. If they invest the time though, there is a deep game here, that is a lot of fun in the co-op-mode.

    Although Dragon Age: Origins doesn't bring anything new, we dare to say that this is the RPG of this autumn!

    NBA 2K16 is the best basketball game you can get nowadays. With a story by Spike Lee, titled Livin' Da Dream, it is a great sports game. Unfortunately the story isn't as good as promised, but the gameplay is marvelous again.

    It is hard to come up with original new IPs in a world of Call of Duty and Halo, but Titanfall really knows how to impress with their huge titans. You have to get used to the Xbox One controls, but the nice surroundings and fun multiplayer gameplay are definitely worth it.

    Tomb Raider tells a great story combined with enjoyable gameplay, though the latter slightly diminishes the impact of the former.

    Marvel Pinball is a surprisingly good expansion that adds some of Marvels most iconic superheroes to an already good game. It's a shame that some of the level bosses aren't impressive. Just like the original Pinball FX2 game, this expansion is meant for people that don't mind breaking their own highscores over and over again.

    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.
