    In short, the game is a complete turd that wastes the idea of its central mechanic and couples this with platforming gameplay that would have been woefully underwhelming a decade ago. Nothing else is anything to write home about, from the characters to the story to the sound design.

    In short, I felt like Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was a rip off. It feels like it was rushed, there are noticeably more bugs (though they are slight). Very little of substance is new or different (apart from the inclusion of multiplayer), all of the same frustrations are there and I mostly felt like playing different games when I was playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

    Enslaved is a decent start of a new game franchise and is an important step for the development team to see if they can reach new heights with a potential sequel (which I hear is already starting to shape).

    The game is a blast to be honest, offering frenziedly choreographed combat, in addition to a fine choice of weapons you can employ against a range of deliciously challenging enemy encounters.

    Every hour we've spent playing this game (be it offline co-op or solo play) was tremendously fun.

    The gameplay in Civilization 5 is still as addictive as ever.

    Halo: Reach is a well-designed and intricate shooter experience; one of the best on the gaming scene today.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The point of the matter is: we like this game.

    In its effort to provide a mix of simulation style flying challenges and an arcade-based aerial combat game, the developers failed on both fronts.

    What baffles me is that there's nothing really wrong with Mafia 2. It's a well-balanced, technically sound action game. However, the content is relatively poor and the game itself is deprived of any distinguishing features that could've reeled in a larger audience.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    One of the greatest disappointments is the poor amount of content the game has to offer. The multiplayer is fun, but there's not a lot to enjoy. The single-player can be finished in approximately four hours.

    Blizzard's remarkable gift for story-telling is now embodied in yet another game. For this very reason, there are probably few people out there who won't be lured by the narrative, marvelously animated cut-scenes, stunning art direction worthy of any preceding achievement from Blizzard, in addition to the carefully crafted characters.

    I liked Disciples 2 and I will miss it. Unless Akella does something amazing with this franchise, there's nothing else left to do but bury it and just move on.

    Again, the greatest advantage of Singularity is that it takes a lot of different elements and molds them into one constantly dynamic gaming experience.

    While it may have the right atmosphere, the right approach to characterization and story presentation to attract anyone who is fond of the Transformers universe, it simply lacks any distinctive features that could potentially make it stand out and put it right up there with the industry's top shooters.

    It's a technical shambles, overshadowing an excellent concept pathetically executed.

    Using the vehicles mods and power-ups strategically, makes every victory all the more rewarding. All racing fans should really give this one a go.

    I really enjoyed the moody ambiance, in addition to the addictive gameplay mechanics, which, you'll have to admit is more important than pompous, fancy graphics...My biggest regret is that this didn't turn out to be a longer game, with more characters and a more intricate plot.

    It comes down to one simple fact. Players won't be talking about this game much. Instead, they'll be playing it. And that's how it should be. Aside from a few sporadic AI glitches and I cannot honestly find anything really wrong with this game.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Apart from a few minor AI issues and Split/Second is actually an enjoyable game.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Aside from a few solid challenges where you're bound to spend some extra time, there's nothing to guarantee longevity or indeed any reply value.
    • 68 Metascore

    Diving into the game's competitive multiplayer modes is practically all there is to enjoy. Even that sentiment won't last long. To be completely honest, I can't recommend much beyond that.
    • 61 Metascore

    The shooting, hand-to-hand combat and sneaking segments can all be fun, but for a very short time. Apart from that, the game has little of true value. It's probably best to avoid it.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    The environments are practically lifeless, with poor textures and hardly any additional detail in the background, the characters are uninteresting, the narrative has been oversimplified and, finally, the hack'n'slash combat isn't different from the average generic console game we often see today.

    You'll find Splinter Cell: Conviction a rewarding experience if you're buying the game for its co-op modes. On the other hand, if you're diving into the action expecting a complex and innovative single-player mode, Splinter Cell: Conviction might seem like a letdown.
    • 64 Metascore

    What a way to end such a reputable and generally good real-time strategy series... Both C&C 3 and Red Alert 3 were way better than this game.

    4A Games created a top-quality game that stands up to the massive competition coming from Western developers and publishers. We are looking forward to anything new these guys come up with in future.

    Those who are after new things will certainly have more than enough to get into.

    If you're looking for complex multi-layered characters and a thrilling storyline, I seriously doubt Final Fantasy XIII will give you the ride of your life.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Despite an outstanding multiplayer ride, we still encountered problems - not to mention, the recent EA server issues, problems with lag and other technical mishaps. Mind you, all of that still won't stop you from recognizing what's probably one of the best shooters on the current PC and (from what I'm told) the console market.
