PS3, $109.95

★★★★★ The best game of 2010 ar­rives on PS3 and it’s been worth the wait. Mass Ef­fect 2 mixes sharp graph­ics and slick sci-fi vis­ual de­sign with rock-solid ac­tion and an en­gag­ing story. This RPG sees play­ers travel through space, vis­it­ing dozens of plan­ets, but it’s their trav­el­ling com­pan­ions that prove the high­light. Mass Ef­fect 2 on PS3 is the de­fin­i­tive ver­sion, as it in­cludes ex­pan­sion packs and two new char­ac­ters.

DS, $59.95

★★★ The pop­u­lar Dis­ney/SquareEnix cross­over se­ries con­tin­ues, with Sora re­turn­ing as the lead char­ac­ter, sup­ported by Mickey, Don­ald and Goofy. Play­ers find them­selves trav­el­ling to fa­mil­iar worlds, from Won­der­land to Agrabah, com­plete with re­cy­cled en­e­mies and lay­outs. While diehard fans may en­joy Re:coded, it just doesn’t add much to the se­ries.
