    This is not Resident Evil anymore – only the herbs and the well-known characters hold the connection to the first games of the franchise. It's a high speed action game with no real horror-elements and some weak points like the linearity, logical gaps and the scripted gameplay. On the other side the coop-mode (locally and online) and the cinematic storytelling are really cool. Resident Evil 6 is a cool action game but not a survival horror game anymore.

    NHL has reached its peak with number 13. Realistic physics, brilliant ice control, a lot of scoring options, tougher opponents and goalkeepers and many different game modes. NHL 13 also has its negative sides. EA could have put new legends in the Be a Legend mode or a bit more balanced NHL moments in the game. There's no way that there are 26 challenges and certain teams are not in this mode. But with its True Skating Performance and its whole atmosphere NHL 13, and maybe NBA 2K13, are going to be my sports games of the year.

    Despite the enormous amount of deaths you may die in Dark Souls, the game is compelling like no other. While the console version already offered a great package, the Prepare to die Edition adds new content and a few goodies. But beware; a controller is needed to play the game in a reasonable fashion.

    Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is a game with an undead, badass bunny as its main character. What more could one want? Seriously, the game is really funny and cool. The style is clearly not for anybody, but if you like that weird, bloody bunny the game will be perfect for you.

    Tekken Tag Tournament is a well-made successor of the old PS2 game. The tag team fights add new tactics and new elements to the game. The game recycles a lot of old stuff, fighters, stages, even the soundtracks. However this is not bad at all, because if you play the game you get this strong old Tekken feeling.

    Borderlands 2 is a role playing game combined with a shooter, including a Bazillionen weapons and enemies, with an extremely brilliant cel-shaded look. This and tons of loot are guaranteed to captivate the player to the screen.

    FIFA 13 proves once more why EA's soccer franchise is on top of the mountain. You won't find a more complete gaming experience in any other sports title and the improvements made this year are a thrill for every soccer enthusiast.

    Finally an anime game which doesn't only use the franchise name to call attention. One Piece: Pirate Warriors looks great, it's fun and provides the whole One Piece Experience, starting with Ruffy's fight against Buggy.

    F1 2012 provides licenses, tracks, new modes and the usual high demands to players. The racing simulation consolidates its claim to be the best F1 game on the market.

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is the best game so far in Konami's soccer franchise. Despite some graphical shortcomings and missing licenses, PES 2013 captures the heart and soul of football and delivers a great gameplay experience.

    Spelunky is one true old-school platformer and worth a try for true fans of those hard retro games like Battletoads, but not quite as unforgiving.

    Quantum Conundrum immediately reminds players of Portal, yet it never really matches its charms and humour, but Chell's fans should definitely try this one while waiting for her (possible) return.

    Each owner of a PS Vita who wants to play with Batman or Lego should buy Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes especially because of the great atmosphere and the thrilling fights.

    Jagged Alliance: Crossfire is a solid tactical game, which has some renewals like the sector inventory or the optional Line of Sight. The Stop&Go mode works fine and creates nice, tactical fights. The economy part, the global map, has far too little options and is not sufficient for a real Jagged Alliance. Nonetheless Crossfire is a solid game and a reasonable option for every strategy fan especially due to the low price.

    Madagascar 3: has some nice cut-scenes with the original voices of the movie, but there is simply far too little offered in the game. The story mode has so much boring tasks for the player even children would not have fun with those. However, the mini-games are funny, playable for two players and well made for children.

    Guild Wars 2 sets a new standard for all upcoming MMORPGs. It may be too early to state that this game will dethrone World of Warcraft but it does a great job in trying. Nice graphics, an abundance of content and new takes on many MMO aspects ensure a great gameplay experience.

    Despite too similar settings and a fast rising difficulty level Wreckateer delivers a solid casual gaming experience with a great implementation of the Kinect system.

    Port Royale 3 is currently one of the best trading simulations on the market.

    Port Royale 3 could have been something big, but the developers didn't try to put in a bunch of new features to reboot the series. Compared to the pc-version Kalypso removed the multiplayer-mode and the loading time is a bit too long. On the other hand the controls were mapped pretty fine on the gamepad, but i think the audience for such a game on consoles is pretty low.

    Men in Black: Alien Crisis does exactly everything wrong. The story, the graphics, the sound, the gameplay – everything is crap. It's another good example how a licensed game should not be.

    After the brand hit rock bottom last year with Dark of the Moon, Fall of Cybertron rises like phoenix from the ashes. The game provides a great campaign and an encouraging multiplayer mode. That's the way licensed games should be done!

    Wizorb is the right kind of snack for those, who want some retro-feelings paired with challenging Arkanoid-style gameplay and some bits of role-playing flavour. Enjoy!

    Darksiders 2 has a larger world, a fantastic loot system, weapons, which are able to level up, and an interesting story and great fights. If you can handle with obsolete graphics and some other little problems, Darksiders 2 is definitely worth looking at.

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 is not as innovative as Super Mario Sunshine or Super Mario Galaxy, but all in all it's a 2D Jump'n'Run you'll have plenty of fun with.

    Sleeping Dogs is a great game with an interesting and thrilling story, with an action-packed Martial Arts gameplay and an atmospheric Hong Kong. The dialogue is well spoken and include nicely made story twists. The only thing is that the open world of Sleeping Dogs is not as perfect as in GTA IV. However, if you like action, well-narrated stories with an atmospheric city, then play Sleeping Dogs.
