GamingHeaven’s Game of the Year 2009 Awards

2009 marks the return of the NFS franchise to its former glory. Also, it finally gave the 360 the edge over the PS3 as far as realistic racers are concerned. Other than that, the year saw smooth sailing in all sports areas, with the obvious exception of the Street Fighter franchise making a successful plunge into 3D.


When Codemasters started their four letter word racing game streak, we were all afraid the series would go downhill. Fortunately, the exact opposite is happening, with each game in the franchise being better than the last. And that is saying a lot!


Forza Motorsport 3

Xbox 360

Read the review

Gran Tourismo or Forza? Up until recently, there was no clear answer. But until the black console manages to produce a new title in the GT series, Forza 3 is without doubt the best grand scale realistic racer that money can buy.


Need for Speed: Shift

PC Xbox 360 Playstation 3

Read the review

Can you remember the last truly great NFS game? Porsche Unleashed? That would have been our answer until just a few months ago. Now, it seems that Shift is the game NFS fans have been waiting for for so long. And boy are we happy about it.


Madden NFL 10

Xbox 360 Playstation 3

Read the review

Europeans might shudder and the word football being associated with this sport, but that doesn’t make the Madden series any worse. Quite the contrary – with the switch to next-gen the series has been getting better with every year.


NHL 10

Xbox 360 Playstation 3

Burly men in reinforced clothing, using sticks to propel a puck into the opposing goal. Sounds as primal as it gets. And no game does the sport more justice than NHL 10. If you don’t want to end up bruised, this is the way to play hockey.


FIFA Soccer 10

Xbox 360 Playstation 3

Read the review

We hate EA. Why? Because they make such an awesome FIFA game for next-gen consoles, and throw a comparatively inferior version at the PC market. PC-only gamers, you don’t know what you are missing.


Fight Night Round 4

Xbox 360 Playstation 3

Read the review

As kids, we often got into scrapes with our friends. Now, as grown men, we do the same, only with more bruises, swelling and sweat! Thankfully, it is all digital. You would not be able to tell it apart by looking at it though!


Street Fighter IV

PC Xbox 360 Playstation 3

Read the review

Hadouken! The reigning arcade fighter is back with a vengeance. It might look old-gen at first glance, but those 2D sprites are in fact 3D models, beautifully rendered and superbly animated. And yes, the gameplay is still perfect.


Tekken 6

Xbox 360 Playstation 3

After a loooooong wait, the last combatant to enter the next-gen arena is finally here. Was the wait worth it? Judging by our personal experience with the game – hell yes!
