Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top games of 2009, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
Simply put, Dawn of War II feels like the result of some mad scientist's experiment, the by product of the splicing of Dawn of War with Company of Heroes, Relic's other, more recent RTS.
If you found yourself putting a ridiculous amount of time into the time trial mode after finishing the campaign you'll almost definitely like what DICE has made here.
With two great games, superb presentation and a sense that you're playing something different to the norm, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena comes highly recommended.
Entrenchment makes Sins of a Solar Empire more playable and accessible to 4X strategy and RTS gamers alike and builds on its predecessor’s success to create a memorable experience.
If you're prepared to push through its choppier moments, you'll find a rich and highly enjoyable game that should keep you occupied for months.
If you have the perseverance to stick with the game through thick and thin, to learn its ropes and to immerse yourself in all it has to offer, then ArmA II will last you for years.
The quality of the main quests is beyond dispute. If you’re a Fallout fan with 800 points to spare, there’s really no reason not to pick this up.
Trine's combination of tight controls, exiting action and physics-based puzzles makes it easy to recommend to platforming fans.
If you’ve always wanted to command a group of ugly creatures that can sing Ring a Ring o' Roses, Overlord II comes highly recommended.
Bionic Commando will frustrate many gamers, but get past the initial swinging learning curve and you'll find a highly entertaining action game that tries to do something a bit different.
