    Ultimax is a fine follow-up to Arena and a no-brainer for anyone who enjoyed its predecessor, whether you're in it for the story or the fighting. The narrative is arguably not as memorable this time around, but it's still a wonderful excuse to spend more time with characters you've already spent a hundred hours with and see the mysteries from the previous game resolved.

    Features one of the most iconic and wonderfully-realized gaming locations of all time. With so much to see and do, it's a fantastic gaming experience for all of the family and so much more than a minigame compilation.

    So far, Hitman feels like the perfect blend of Absolution and Blood Money; the accessibility and polish of the former, but with the same approach to level design and characterisation as the latter. It looks fantastic and the frame rate even holds up during the busiest scenes on PS4.

    OlliOlli achieves exactly what it set out to by providing a stern test of player's reflexes, with a level of playability that will keep them coming back for more punishment. You'll feel the desire to smash your Vita on some of the more taxing courses, but the urge to get back up on that skateboard for yet another attempt will prevent you from going through with it.

    Baldur's Gate 2: Enhanced Edition is still an excellent RPG to this day though, so regardless of what platform you play it on, it is an adventure you won't soon forget.

    There's isn't much new on offer, though the chance to own all of Kratos's adventures in glorious high definition will prove more than enough for his dedicated followers.

    Roar Rampage is a mindless game in the best sort of way. It brings fun destructive action to your fingertips with a whimsical sense of humor.

    As a tribute to a franchise's greatest moments, it's almost unparalleled in its breadth and attention to detail, and whether you're a long-time fan or someone who has only skimmed through a few core entries, there's no better way to revisit the series.

    While the Ridge Racer series has been rather hit and miss in its last few iterations, Ridge Racer Slipstream feels like a return to form for fans of Namco's careening cars.

    FTL did the punishingly difficulty space-faring genre better last year, but for that type of experience on the go Star Command is your best bet.

    Lone Survivor: Director's Cut improves upon the already excellent original with an expanded story for its most dedicated fans, making it the definitive version of the psychological horror adventure.

    If you've got the time and patience to overcome its seemingly ‚Äčimpenetrable‚Äč exterior, then Dirt Rally is a thrilling racing game that's best in its class. This is a game where satisfaction can be had with a podium finish and one where you'll feel a true sense of pride and joy for every hard-earned victory... as rare as they may be.

    While the game does have its faults - particularly falling apart when Garrett is spotted - Thief excels in the shadows as a pure stealth title, becoming increasingly enjoyable as your skills improve.

    Wasteland 2 might be daunting to newcomers, then, but its a sequel that successfully captures the strategic depth and black humor of the original...Brian Fargo and his team at InXile have delivered a quintessential role-playing experience with infinite possibilities.

    While the side-quests can underwhelm and frustrate, the sheer amount of extra content is a welcome addition, making for a more well-rounded role-playing experience and one that well lives up to the Final Fantasy name.

    The extensive RaceNet-powered multiplayer mode, in particular, offers an enormous amount of things to do and players to challenge, which should keep fans on the road until the studio's next hotly-anticipated release. Let's just hope we don't have to wait another five years for GRID 3.

    Trials Fusion may not make as far of an evolutionary leap forward as its predecessor, but that doesn't make it any less worthy a successor to the Trials name.

    Wonderbook: Book of Spells is an impressive piece of technology, realizing the potential of augmented reality as a teaching tool and a means of wholesome family entertainment. Its appeal diminishes the older your children get, but Sony has convinced us that a world of possibilities lies ahead for Wonderbook.

    Nidhogg is definitely a blast if you have a few friends around, and it's easy to see why it has been hyped up over the last few years.

    Of course, that is assuming the second act can satisfactorily tie everything together. Act 1, if played at a relaxed pace while exploring every dialog possibility, is about a three-hour adventure.

    Dungelot 2 polished and expanded the original's accessible charm to make a dungeon crawler that is both more approachable and far deeper than ever before.

    Hitman GO is far cleverer than it has any right to be, putting a refreshingly unconventional spin on the stealth genre.
