Ace Combat: Assault HorizonScore

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

PS3 / Xbox 360

"No long-range strikes, not even air-to-air missiles. Instead, we've got the dogfighting version of melee attacks, up close and very personal."

Text: Christian Gaca | Gamereactor Germany
Dark SoulsScore

Dark Souls

PS3 / Xbox 360

"Expect to die a lot, but also expect to be richly rewarded once you master the obstacles put in front of you."

Text: Bengt Lemne
Forza Motorsport 4Score

Red Bull X-FightersScore

Red Bull X-Fighters

XBLA / Xbox 360

"There is no reason to look closer at Red Bull X-Fighters, but every reason to check out Joe Danger and Trials HD."

Text: Love Bolin | Gamereactor Sweden
RageScore

Rage

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"id has learnt some new tricks that embellish the experience; but it still kills the old way. In today's world, that's almost a unique proposition."

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012Score

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012

PC / PS2 / PS3 / PSP / Wii / Xbox 360

"We are talking about the latest edition of former giant in the genre, and the amount of improvements is not impressive."

Text: Kristian Nymoen
Burnout CrashScore

Burnout Crash

PS3 / PSN / XBLA / Xbox 360

"Criterion have taken the popular crash mode from their Burnout series, turned it on its head and added all sorts of crazy ideas."

Text: Mathias Holmberg | Gamereactor Sweden
FIFA 12Score

FIFA 12

iOS / Nintendo 3DS / PC / PS2 / PS3 / PSP / Wii / Xbox 360

"FIFA 12 feels more heavy-handed than its predecessor, but remains very capable of portraying the beautiful game."

Text: David Moschini | Gamereactor Germany
Renegade OpsScore

Renegade Ops

PS3 / PSN / XBLA / Xbox 360

"You're travelling from A to B unloading whatever guns, bombs and destruction you can on the way. Contra on wheels? From the explosion count, it could well be."

Text: Matti Isotalo | Gamereactor Finland
Rise of NightmaresScore

Rise of Nightmares

Xbox 360

"Implementation of Kinect is at times both daring and sometimes remarkable. The game takes a few confident steps in the right direction, but stumbles all too often."

Text: Thomas Blichfeldt | Gamereactor Denmark
Radiant Silvergun HDScore

Radiant Silvergun HD

XBLA / Xbox 360

"Microsoft and Treasure have worked closely together to offer up the definitive version of the greatest lost classic from an almost forgotten console generation."

F1 2011Score

F1 2011

Nintendo 3DS / PC / PS Vita / PS3 / Xbox 360

"It's a game that captures the racing spirit, and gives the right amount of feedback. Rarely has it felt so rewarding to master a corner or pull off an overtake."

Text: Thomas Blichfeldt | Gamereactor Denmark
The GunstringerScore

The Gunstringer

XBLA / Xbox 360

"We really shouldn't have doubted retail pressure, or new tech, would have humbled or hindered the studio in any way."

Text: Ingo Delinger | Gamereactor Germany
Gears of War 3Score

Gears of War 3

Xbox 360

"For those holding their breath waiting for it fail: it doesn't. For those hoping for it to innovate: it doesn't. Either way, it's damn fine entertainment."

NHL 12Score

NHL 12

PS3 / Xbox 360

"If there is one thing that successful developers of sports games struggle with, it's innovation."

Text: Bengt Lemne
Dead IslandScore

Dead Island

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Later escort missions are troublesome, as it feels as though Techland has equipped the NPCs with the same artificial intelligence as the zombies by mistake."

Text: Jonas Mäki (Gamereactor Sweden)
Warhammer 40,000: Space MarineScore

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"That unrelenting action, that sees you pinball between rucks, is gratifyingly fun due to the emphasis on melee over gunplay."

Text: Jonas Mäki | Gamereactor Sweden
The BaconingScore

The Baconing

PC / PS3 / PSN / XBLA / Xbox 360

Crispy, tasty and made out of pigs. The Baconing comes to us offering up wonderful humour and lots of loot!

Text: Bengt Lemne
BodycountScore

Bodycount

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"So, weapons great, destruction, lovely. The fundamentals are all there; pure arcade action. Sadly the rest isn't up to par."

Text: Daniel Steinholtz
Driver: San FranciscoScore

Driver: San Francisco

PC / PS3 / Wii / Xbox 360

"Even if Shift initially raises doubts, the mechanics works much better than we had expected - and about a million times better than the unfortunate on-foot sections of Driver 3."

Text: Eerik Rahja (Gamereactor Finland)
Toy Soldiers: Cold WarScore

Toy Soldiers: Cold War

XBLA / Xbox 360

"We're delighted with Toy Soldiers: Cold War, as it offers solid action, great controls, humour, and an extremely nice presentation."

Deus Ex: Human RevolutionScore

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

Text: Gillen McAllister
Fruit Ninja KinectScore

Fruit Ninja Kinect

XBLA / Xbox 360

"The only option is to slow your thrusts temporarily. But in a game requiring fast reflexes, this makes you look like a badly choreographed extra in a Michael Bay movie."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Insanely Twisted Shadow PlanetScore

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet

XBLA / Xbox 360

"Microsoft's Summer of Arcade-campaign has delivered a couple of really strong games this year, and Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is no exception."

Text: Rasmus Lund-Hansen (Gamereactor Denmark)
From DustScore

From Dust

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

Text: Gillen McAllister
Call of Juarez: The CartelScore

Call of Juarez: The Cartel

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"All hints of a serious story are thrown out the window as some Rambo-inspired warfare against drugs, complete with cheesy dialogue, begins."

Text: Jonas Mäki (Gamereactor Sweden)
Cars 2Score

Cars 2

Mac / Nintendo DS / PC / PS3 / Wii / Xbox 360

"It's still odd seeing such extravagant violence in a Pixar title. Like Woody drawing a gun and capping Mr.Potato Head."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2Score

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2

Nintendo DS / PC / PS3 / Wii / Xbox 360

"A couple of small improvements doesn't help hide the fact that this is a shooter that lacks ideas with the Harry Potter brand tacked on."

Text: Thomas Blichfeldt (Gamereactor Denmark)
F.E.A.R. 3Score

F.E.A.R. 3

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"A labyrinth of blinking flat-screens, old storage rooms where pigs are hanging side-by-side with human corpses. At those times F.E.A.R. 3 seems like everything we hoped for."

Text: Thomas Blichfeldt (Gamereactor Denmark)
Shadows of the DamnedScore

Shadows of the Damned

PS3 / Xbox 360

"It's a meeting of minds every bit as intriguing as the Tarantino and Rodriguez Grindhouse double-bill, yet with one key difference: it delivers."

Text: Sebastian R. Sørensen
Transformers: Dark of the MoonScore

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Nintendo 3DS / Nintendo DS / PS3 / Wii / Xbox 360

"There's likely plenty of gaps in the story ripe for action-aided filler between the second and third movies (what happened to Megan Fox not being one of them)."

Text: Petter Hegevall
Red Faction: ArmageddonScore

Red Faction: Armageddon

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"...we tend to judge games like Red Faction: Armageddon way more harshly than they deserve. It's popcorn-entertainment, a good game to spend a couple of hours with, and it performs that job splendidly."

Text: Petter Mårtensson
Dungeon Siege IIIScore

Dungeon Siege III

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"As a whole Dungeon Siege III offers some grand ideas, and the illusion of fantasy epic, but falls just before greatness due to its shortcomings."

Text: Martin Eiser
Child of EdenScore

Child of Eden

PS3 / Xbox 360

"You're charged to dive in, wipe the network clear of the virus like a Norton version of Mr.Muscle...the net may be vast and infinite, but it's still 'Save the Princess' time."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Alice: Madness ReturnsScore

Alice: Madness Returns

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Alice: Madness Returns is a nice platform game. It's not without its problems, but the mechanics are good enough that fans of the genre should give it a try."

Text: Rasmus Lund-Hansen (Gamereactor Denmark)
Dirt 3Score

Dirt 3

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"It's quite obvious that Codemasters have wanted to make a game that on all accounts beats the rest of the genre, and that's something that they've partially succeeded with..."

Text: Thomas Blichfeldt (Gamereactor Denmark)
Sega Rally Online ArcadeScore

Sega Rally Online Arcade

PS3 / PSN / XBLA / Xbox 360

This is a conversion - with tweaks - of Sega Rally's arcade fraternity. That means the type of Championship that was built to swallow pound coins, not time.

Text: Gillen McAllister
OutlandScore

Outland

PS3 / PSN / XBLA / Xbox 360

"Outland has the craftmanship that sets it alongside Super Meat Boy and Symphony of the Night. Difficult yet captivating."

Text: Bengt Lemne, Gillen McAllister & Petter Mårtensson
L.A. NoireScore

L.A. Noire

The morning sun seeps in through the blinds at the Los Angeles Police Department headquarters. War veteran-turned cop Cole Phelps fix his holster, pulls on his police hat and walks out the door into one of the most ambitiously designed game worlds ever.

Lego Pirates of the CaribbeanScore

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean

Nintendo 3DS / Nintendo DS / PC / PS3 / PSP / Wii / Xbox 360

"None are impervious to Lego's charms. We went in with cynical size nines strapped on, ready to stomp hard. We came away sandalled and smiling."

Text: Gillen McAllister
BrinkScore

Brink

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Only when you've a leaderboard billing that's reassuringly full of misspelt gamertags, is the experience every bit exciting and tense as the digital gods intended."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Bangai-O HD: Missile FuryScore

Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury

XBLA / Xbox 360

"Cry broken gameplay and you'd be wrong. The correct interpretation is: 'I'm defending my poor reaction times with terminal intensity. Let's hit restart, and give this another go.'"

Text: Gillen McAllister
Thor: God of ThunderScore

Thor: God of Thunder

PS3 / Xbox 360

"Frustration, some ill conceived boss fights and a rather unsatisfying combat system sends this God of Thunder fast on his way to the bargain bin."

Text: Bengt Lemne
Virtua Tennis 4Score

Virtua Tennis 4

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Short matches, quirky mini-games, and gameplay that focuses more on reflexes and timing than on proper tactics."

Text: Bengt Lemne
Operation Flashpoint: Red RiverScore

Operation Flashpoint: Red River

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Despite the fact that Operation Flashpoint: Red River tops its predecessor in many areas there are just too many flaws."

Text: Jesper Karlsson (Gamereactor Sweden)
Michael Jackson: The ExperienceScore

Michael Jackson: The Experience

Xbox 360

"Michael Jackson lived an incredibly rich life, so why am I forced to suffer through this barren experience..."

Text: Jonas Mäki (Gamereactor Sweden)
Mortal KombatScore

Mortal Kombat

PS3 / Xbox 360

"Mortal Kombat throws me 20 years back in time and offers up wonderful retro- and nostalgia-laden memories from the wonderful 16-bit era."

Text: Petter Hegevall
Portal 2Score

Portal 2

Mac / PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Portal 2 managed to surpass my very high expectations of it and it's the perfect sequel to the classic Portal. It does everything right and doesn't take a single wrong step."
