NDS game, online, hardware and PS2
In the category Best NDS Game:
SONIC CHRONICLES: Die Dunkle Bruderschaft - SEGA
What looks at first like a colourful jump'n'run, turns out after only a few minutes to be an atmospheric RPG. Thanks to the exciting story, the amusing dialogue and the tactical fight system, older Sonic fans will also find this very entertaining. BioWare has given the DS an epic adventure all about the blue hedgehog.
In the category BEST MOBILE Game:
PES 2009 - Konami
Smoothly animated mini-players, a passing game and runs into the centre - it's all possible, even on a small mobile phone screen. Depending on the type of phone and with a certain amount of practice, the one-button control makes even complex game moves possible. "PES 2009" for mobile phones even allows for multiplayer games by Bluetooth and is much more than just a stopgap to pass the time.
In the category Best Online Game:
Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning - GOA GOA (developed by Mythic Entertainment)
The creators of the online RPG legend "Dark Age of Camelot", still so successful today, are back with "Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning". GOA squares up to the alpha male "World of Warcraft" with spectacular visuals, innovative play modi, neat control and an enormous, appealing fantasy world.
In the category Best Hardware:
PlayTV - Sony Computer Entertainment Deutschland
The PlayTV enables users to record, play back and pause for playback of TV programmes received in DVB-T format. This is the first time that a game console serves as a hard drive recorder. The remote function is particularly impressive, making it possible to watch recorded TV shows or live TV programmes on the Playstation Portable (PSP).
In the category Best PS2 Game:
