LA Noire
5.00

1. LA Noire

While L.A. Noire may not appeal to everyone, those that are charmed by its mean streets will likely love every second of it. It's a bold, cinematic step forward in a genre that’s dying for innovation, and its implementation of ...

Portal 2 (PC)
5.00

2. Portal 2 (PC)

Even though it's more immersive and funnier than the original, the return of GlaDOS alone should be enough to convince you to play Portal 2.

Dynasty Warriors 7
5.00

3. Dynasty Warriors 7

These games are always a love-or-hate affair, but if you've ever enjoyed a Warriors game in its 11-odd year history, Dynasty Warriors 7 is a must buy.

Dead Space 2
5.00

4. Dead Space 2

No, it isn't as scary as the first, and if you're disappointed by that, you need to let it go because Dead Space 2 isn't about running from the Necromorph menace -- it's about confronting it and hopefully sending it ...

LittleBigPlanet 2
5.00

5. LittleBigPlanet 2

Sackboy's triumphant return packs the same engrossing brand of innovation and ingenuity that made its pioneering predecessor our Game of the Year for 2008. An expanded scale and a whole new treasure chest of tools and toys to conceptualise and ...
Review Date: 5th Jan., 2011
RRP: $ 109.95
Call of Duty: Black Ops
5.00

6. Call of Duty: Black Ops

It's difficult not to call Black Ops the 'best Call of Duty ever' simply because it's the ultimate refinement of the franchise formula. With an interesting single-player narrative and a multiplayer component brimming over with content, it's an easy recommendation ...

RRP: $ 120.00
Rock Band 3
5.00

7. Rock Band 3

The bar for music games has been irrefutably raised. Like magic, gamers can now be transformed into musicians... provided they don't run screaming for the hills at the first sight of a barre chord.
Review Date: 29th Oct., 2010
RRP: $ 99.95
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
4.75

8. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

Ubisoft's third stab at the assassination genre is just as sleek and razor-sharp as ever. The addition of a multiplayer mode is also bloody good fun. Simply put, Ubisoft Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is killer!

RRP: $ 109.95

Gran Turismo 5
4.50

9. Gran Turismo 5

After an extremely long gestation period and seemingly endless delays, Gran Turismo 5 is finally here. Was it worth the wait? Here's where you can find out!

RRP: $ 119.95
Dance Central
4.50

10. Dance Central

Dance Central asks a lot of you as a player. Not only do you have to get up off your couch, somehow create six to eight feet of space in your living room for Kinect to register your coordinated flailing ...

PC World Evaluation Team Review - MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
