Bodycount

Bodycount

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Bodycount doesn't focus on laying buildings to waste, like in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Instead breaking down the cover your enemies might hide behind is a strategic element."

Text: Christian Gaca (Gamereactor Germany)
Metro: Last Light

Metro: Last Light

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"The grab initiates a sequence in which soldiers storm into the base. Cue Space Invaders, Metro-style, as you chew through flesh and cement in a barrage of bullets."

A vacation paradise becomes a vacation hell when a zombie infestation breaks out on the tropical island. Welcome to Dead Island, roleplaying action game and fight for survival.

Text: Rasmus Lund-Hansen (Gamereactor Denmark)
SSX

SSX

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"If you're facing a giant abyss, you don't need to be worrying. You're Batman with a snowboard buddy. You and that hoversuit of yours are going to fly - or at least fall in style."

Text: Carsten Odgaard (Gamereactor DK)
NHL 12

NHL 12

PS3 / Xbox 360

"Players are shunted into each other with the force of dominoes strapped with explosives. It captures the physicality of a game that's as big on decking as it is goals."

Text: Carsten Odgaard
Disney Universe

Disney Universe

PC / PS3 / Wii / Xbox 360

"It's easy to understand why you might snort in derision upon first glance. What you don't twig is the last time you did so was when Traveller's Tales announced Lego Star Wars."

Text: Gillen McAllister
FIFA 12

FIFA 12

PS3 / Xbox 360

"There is one thing that really stands out and will be the deciding factor when times come to review the game - the new physics engine."

Text: Carsten Odgaard
Ridge Racer Unbounded

Ridge Racer Unbounded

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"And the cars? Powerful, strong, fast and - as typical of the RR universe - entirely fictional. These are wheeled missiles that can punch through cement and mortar."

Text: Christian Gaca
F.E.A.R. 3

F.E.A.R. 3

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"With the Wall of Death inexorably billowing towards you, it's like Running Man, Crystal Maze and Nightmare all rolled into one. The panic that accompanies every game is extraordinary."

Text: Lorenzo Mosna
Duke Nukem Forever

Duke Nukem Forever

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Or, to put it another way, no matter how much you love your Quarter Pounder Deluxe, sometimes you just can't help hanker for a plain, simple - yet classic - hamburger."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Driver: San Francisco

Driver: San Francisco

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"It means boosting cars, Ghostbusters-style; you can possess any driver within your dream city at the press of a button. Turn ghoul, and you've got access to over 140 licensed rides."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Space Marine doesn't look like it will be a revolution of the third person shooter genre. Instead it's an attempt to tell the sad and dark story of the 40K-universe in a genre that is easy to get into."

Text: Lasse Borg (Gamereactor Denmark)
The Gunstringer

The Gunstringer

XBLA / Xbox 360

"If you own Kinect you owe to yourself and your investment to keep an eye out for The Gunstringer."

Text: Bengt Lemne

Text: Jonas Mäki (Gamereactor Sweden)
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim tops our list as the most anticipated title of 2011 and we can hardly wait to get out hands on it."

Text: Jonas Mäki (Gamereactor Sweden)
Renegade Ops

Renegade Ops

PS3 / PSN / XBLA / Xbox 360

"A screen covered with health bars, points, upgrades, health kits and the constant rattle of numbers indicating the damage you do"

Text: Jonas Elfving (Gamereactor Sweden)
Battlefield 3

Battlefield 3

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"The street gun battle might impress, but it's no more than a fly's fart in a barn compared to the continent-shifting shudder that brings the presentation to a dramatic close."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Dragon's Dogma

Dragon's Dogma

PS3 / Xbox 360

"As ever with Japanese action titles, bigger is definitely better. Players will be set against all manner of gigantic fantasy monsters."

Text: Arttu Rajala
Street Fighter X Tekken

Street Fighter X Tekken

PS3 / Xbox 360

"We tried to find some new middle ground between the franchises to please both fans...that means more Tekken-style flow, explosive combos, throws and air juggles."

Text: Arttu Rajala
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"The game was originally meant to be a Director's Cut. However the fan response on Frank's absence was so strong that it was obvious we needed to bring him back in a big way."

Text: Arttu Rajala
Alice: Madness Returns

Alice: Madness Returns

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"A pepper-grinder doubles as a gatling gun, a teapot utilised as a long-range grenade launcher. The arsenal is something you'd see if Pixar decided to stray into Grindhouse territory."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"...you are resurrected at the start of the game and come to life in a pile of less fortunate resurrection candidates."

Text: Bengt Lemne
Dungeon Siege III

Dungeon Siege III

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Some things are clear: don't go alone. But make sure your backup is someone who's less Lone Ranger, more Tango & Cash. Always pick Anjali, and avoid the Determined Pants."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat

PS3 / Xbox 360

"Punches dislocate jaws, daggers puncture muscle, kicks crunch vertebrae into dust. They get their energy bar demolished, and the Daily Mail gets its latest sacrifice to the cause."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Dead Island

Dead Island

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"It may struggle to live up to the hype created by the trailer, but then again what game could hope to eclipse that?"

Text: Bengt Lemne
From Dust

From Dust

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"I swear. I think for a few minutes, talk land reformation with the people either side of me - then I hit restart. I bet even the gods never had a reset button handy."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Gears of War 3

Gears of War 3

Xbox 360

"Be it either random occurrence or some human quirk using the Paper, Rock, Scissors principle, this happened three times. In a row. The air turns red as suicide charges turn into bloodbaths."

Text: Gillen McAllister
The Darkness II

The Darkness II

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"He's less cross-dressing Spice Girl wannabe, more pint-sized Ray Winstone, ripping into enemies with the viciousness and accent that wouldn't be amiss in a British gangster movie."

Text: Gillen McAllister
L.A. Noire

L.A. Noire

PS3 / Xbox 360

"The story's going to be charged with Rockstar's typical cinematic flair for all sorts of twists and turns, as characters on both on both sides of the law have their own angle on every situation."

Text: Markus Hirsilä | GR Finland
Anarchy Reigns

Anarchy Reigns

PS3 / Xbox 360

"It's a love letter to the 90s arcade; a game whose attract trailer grabbed your attention and demanded money. You didn't know what was to come, but were ready to spend a quid to find out."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Call of Juarez: The Cartel

Call of Juarez: The Cartel

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"When there's no chance of success where you are, move forward...an ethos Techland has embraced wholeheartedly, as it brings its FPS Western to modern day Los Angeles."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Brink

Brink

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Initially the small courtyard becomes a bloodbath as teams flow into it, erupting into a Naked Gun moment as a firefight opens up between opposing sides crouched either side of the same wall."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"It's up there with sci-fi's greats: Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell, Metal Gear Solid. This is thought-provoking sci-fi with lashings of body-augmented action sequences."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Dirt 3

Dirt 3

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"Dirt 3's rides are nicely loose in their handling; just enough of a bitch in learning to control that you feel teased rather than openly dominated."

Text: Gillen McAllister
Duke Nukem Forever

Duke Nukem Forever

PC / PS3 / Xbox 360

"This kind of humour permeates the game; former fans of the series have a lot of childish humour to look forward to. Like we said: it's The Dark Knight versus Batman & Robin."

Text: Emil Ryttergaard (Gamereactor Denmark)
Lego Pirates of the Caribbean

Text: Gillen McAllister
WWE All Stars

WWE All Stars

PS2 / PS3 / PSP / Wii / Xbox 360

"All Stars surgically extracts the swollen man-glands that have inhibited newcomers from wrestling in the past...it's NBA Jam with spandex and a heavier emphasis on the touchy-feely."

Text: Gillen McAllister
