Total War: Shogun 2 - Limited Edition
Total War: Shogun 2 - Limited Edition
"The Total War series came storming back to form this year with this modern update of their first master work. Deep, intelligent, gorgeous and most important of all, fun."
Minecraft Foam Pickaxe
Minecraft Foam Pickaxe
"Minecraft finally saw it's way to the surface this year. A download-only indie title, this may well revolutionize the very way we play & buy games in the future."
Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Limited Edition (PC DVD)
Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Limited Edition (PC DVD)
"Another great update of a past great. Eidos Montreal did a stellar job in re-imagining the monumental Deus Ex for the new generation."
Portal 2 (PC/Mac DVD)
Portal 2 (PC/Mac DVD)
"Valve continue their peerless delivery of superb games with this improved sequal. Superb script, great cast and (of course) challenging and inventive puzzles. Co-op is great as well."
Battlefield 3 (PC DVD)
Battlefield 3 (PC DVD)
"OK, the single player was woeful but THAT multiplayer...mmmmm. There is simply no other online shooter that can inspire such wonder as this. A landmark game in many ways."
Jules Verne: Journey to the Moon (PC CD)
Jules Verne: Journey to the Moon (PC CD)
"No,no not the book but the wonderful new indie game from Freebird Games 'To The Moon'. It may look cheap (because it is) but this game has charm and storytelling chops to spare. Give it a go."
Batman: Arkham City (PC DVD)
Batman: Arkham City (PC DVD)
"Superb sequal to the already superb 'Arkham Asylum'. Bigger in every way, this is what modern gaming is all about."
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings  - Version 2 (PC DVD)
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - Version 2 (PC DVD)
"Didn't grab me as much as many but this was still a superior RPG experience than many. Wonderful visuals but the world could have been a little more interactive for this reviewers tastes."
Dragon Age 2 (PC DVD)
Dragon Age 2 (PC DVD)
"A shallow experience devoid of any character or style of it's own. A real dissapointment after the superb original (buy that instead)."
Bulletstorm (PC DVD)
Bulletstorm (PC DVD)
"A surprisingly enjoyable romp with a bunch of Bald Space MarinesTM who actually had some sort of character, regardless of how flawed that might be."
Star Wars: The Old Republic (PC DVD)
Star Wars: The Old Republic (PC DVD)
"Much too early to speak of this as a WOW-beater, but Bioware's new MMO enjoyed the slickest launch of any genre rival. Keep an eye on this one."
Crysis 2 (PC DVD)
Crysis 2 (PC DVD)
"Another weak sequal, this failed in almost every aspect compared to the breathtaking original. Dull, repetitive and generally devoid of character, lets hope for more from the inevitable Crysis 3."
F.E.A.R. 3 (PC DVD)
F.E.A.R. 3 (PC DVD)
"Ditto above."
Duke Nukem Forever (PC DVD)
Duke Nukem Forever (PC DVD)
"Dreadful, sexist and purile nonsense. Easily the worst game of the year. Just the thought of it makes my blood boil. Avoid at all cost."
Team Fortress 2 (PC DVD)
Team Fortress 2 (PC DVD)
"The classic Team Fortress 2 went free-to-play this year and in doing so once again upstaged it's online shooter brethren."
Anno 2070 (PC DVD)
Anno 2070 (PC DVD)
"One of the better city builders currently available on the market. This german-based game is quickly gaining the appreciation that it's always fully deserved."
Tropico 4 (PC DVD)
Tropico 4 (PC DVD)
"Another fun installment in the Tropico series. The games are starting to suffer from repetition but this is still a fun distraction from the more heavyweight titles on this list."
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (PC DVD)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (PC DVD)
"A better effort this year from the COD stable but this is still a title that is trading on past glories. Single player is mostly a fine experience but multiplayer is starting to look really tired."
L.A. Noire - The Complete Edition (PC DVD)
L.A. Noire - The Complete Edition (PC DVD)
"A belated appearence for Rockstar's 'LA Confidential' inspired adventure. Repetition stops the game from reaching true greatness but it's facial-recognition system deserves special mention."
Dead Island (PC DVD)
Dead Island (PC DVD)
"A real missed oppurtunity. Mostly fine but could/should have been so much more than it is. A shallow game which somehow comes out with a little credibility."
RAGE (PC DVD)
RAGE (PC DVD)
"Hmmmm, not bad. Rage is better than many shooters on this list but it still suffers in some key areas. Fallout-lite if you like."
Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad (PC DVD)
Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad (PC DVD)
"Extremely hardcore online shooter. Great at times but difficult to appreciate without dedicating inhuman amount of time to it."
Trine 2: Collector's Edition (PC/Mac DVD)
Trine 2: Collector's Edition (PC/Mac DVD)
"This along with Limbo, Bastion, Orcs Must Die and League Of Legends all proved that some of the best games are currently being made away from the major companies."
Super Meat Boy - Ultra Edition (PC CD)
Super Meat Boy - Ultra Edition (PC CD)
"I had to include the official release of this modern platformer classic. Hard as nails and one of the most rewarding gaming experiences on this entire list."
