===Top 100===

-Rocksmith By: AK_the_Twilight
[9 - Superb] Rocksmith doesn't make learning guitar any easier, but it makes it a whole lot more fun.
-The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword By: Asagea_888
[9.5 - Superb] A fitting entry in a franchise spanning 25 years, Skyward Sword isn't perfect, but it is one flight worth taking.
-Assassin's Creed: Revelations By: AzelKosMos
[7.5 - Good] A satisfying conclusion to Ezio's story arc but the short release schedule is really starting to show.
- By: dark_being
[4 - Poor] X-Men: Destiny is such a disappointing game that even fans of the Marvel comics won't find any reasons to try it.
-Cars 2: The Video Game By: Domstercool
[7 - Good] Avalanche Software have done another decent attempt at a Disney licensed video game. My DarkZero review.
-Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 By: DraugenCP
[7 - Good] While a competent shooter, Road to Hill 30 doesn't have the impact it could have had.
-Homeworld 2 By: Gelugon_baat
[8.5 - Great] Homeworld 2 continues the series' tradition of captivating tales and stellar gameplay.
-Super Mario 3D Land By: JustPlainLucas
[8.5 - Great] Mario and Co. make their debut on the 3DS with an excellent blend of old and new school platforming.
-Mass Effect By: monco59
[8 - Great] Mass Effect crafts an exciting world for you to play in, but forgets to craft a compelling game to go with it.
-Rayman Origins By: Pierst179
[5 - Superb] Slide to the side, Mario; Rayman just got a piece of your throne
-Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 By: PSFreak1
[8.5 - Great] Modern Warfare 3 is exactly what we expected, and depending on your stance on the series that's either good or bad.
-Xenoblade Chronicles By: ShadowLaguna
[9 - Superb] Xenoblade is a brilliant RPG that is very well developed.

[9.5 - Superb] One of the biggest, fully-featured and most addictive RPGs ever made… with some of the most ridiculous bugs to offer.

Seems like Elder Scrolls 5 is the flavour of the week! And congrats to all. And I agree with @Sebadonut - lots of good reviews as I just read Mass Effect and The Witcher: Enhanced Edition.
