    In the end, Burial at Sea finishes on a much stronger, series-apt note than the one it began on, and it's impressive how Irrational Games drops curtains on its universe with something truly unexpected but wholly fitting.

    The game can become a bit of a grind as more challenging missions may require multiple attempts, but the core swinging mechanic remains fun throughout. Knights of the Round Cable captures the feel of an easy to learn, difficult to master game with controls perfectly suited for touch devices.

    At its core, Thomas Was Alone is a celebration of the differences between people, and as a celebration its puzzles are far more concerned with offering a hurdle to overcome rather than obstacles to fail. It's a subtle difference, but an important one.

    An enjoyable and laid back puzzle game that's easy to grasp but tricky to master. It's a little on the plain side and lacking in variety, but the addition of new puzzle types combined with the promise of user-generated content, should pull players back for more.

    Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on iOS may suffer compared to versions of the game on other systems, but for kart racers on a smartphone it's one of the best games in town.

    The number of cars has also been greatly reduced, clocking in around the 200 mark. As only a casual petrolhead, this isn't something that bothered me personally, but it's unlikely to be well received by hardcore fans.

    With gorgeous visuals, great presentation, intuitive controls and deep game modes, Madden NFL 15 is undoubtedly the MVP of American football games.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order is not the most sophisticated of games and it's certainly not perfect, but it wears its silly plot and over-the-top action like a badge of honor, and for that we applaud it.

    The game is almost on par with FIFA 12 on the PS3, though the animation marginally falters on occasion. The player likenesses are impressive, and the stadiums rendered in vivid detail. Overall, it's a fantastic looking game.

    It's a game capable of delivering real moments of magic, but is too often marred by inconsistent Kinect controls that can turn those feelings of joy into frustration.

    Puzzle Craft attempts a different approach to the popular city-building genre, replacing the typical microtransaction model with a satisfying puzzle game.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a superbly titled game. It is a valiant effort at a sincere depiction of war by developers whose hearts were clearly in the right place, telling a gripping story that is still respectful of its source.

    Temple Run was by no means the first endless runner on the mobile scene, and its success paved the way for an influx of worthy competitors. With this in mind, Temple Run 2 feels like a trek across well-trodden ground, albeit a scenic one, rather than a substantial expansion of an existing formula.

    A few bugs aside, Cart Life is an astounding achievement.

    The objectives don't change the way levels play too much, but they do offer additional challenges to extend the game's life. The core pinball aspect is tons of fun too, so you'll be looking for reasons to play more of it. It's brought together with an utterly charming art style and cast of furball characters that makes Momonga Pinball Adventures a joy to play on the go.

    It may not be the most progressive title of the PS Vita's launch lineup, but it's a worthy addition to its stable.

    Even though a watered-down version of the game is available to play for free, Super House of Dead Ninjas on Steam is a great time-waster and comes recommended.

    Rotolla is an interesting take on puzzle games, stressing reflexes over strategy. The minimalist art style may stray a bit on the bland side, but once you get going Rotolla's puzzling gameplay will keep you hooked.

    While some could rightly criticize The Unfinished Swan for what it is lacking, sometimes an empty space can still speak volumes. Just spray a dash of paint, and you may see that it isn't all that empty after all.

    When you aren't bogged down by text, Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney's crossover gameplay is perfectly complementary, providing an experience we wouldn't object to one day revisiting.

    Make no mistake about it, Catherine is a niche title and probably won't be to everybody's taste, but it's also one of the most captivating and absorbing games we've played in quite some time.

    The inclusion of playable villains does just enough to prevent a tried and tested formula from turning stagnant, but with Disney Infinity and Nintendo's Amiibo amping up the competition in the toys-to-life category, future Skylanders titles may have to do more to cement the series' position as market leader.

    As a near-decade old game, Resident Evil 4 is frequently amazing. As a first time player, there are more than a couple of moments that feel archaic, often frustrating to the point that you may give up playing. See it through to the end, however, and you'll come to realize just what an achievement Resident Evil 4 was for its time, and how well the large majority has held itself together across the last ten years.

    Pivvot falls into the same category as games like Super Hexagon - but is just a little more forgiving, and a better experience for it.

    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.

    The physics can lead to frustration at times, but Incredipede is so playfully creative that you'll want to push through just to see what form the creature will take next.

    Proof that EA hasn't run out of ideas for new creative content just yet.

    The tactical combat and dungeon exploration steal the show, and control fantastically on the touch screen, making Warhammer Quest an easy recommendation for fans of the classic board game and newcomers alike.

    Republique Episode 2: Metamorphosis builds on the first episode's foundation for a stronger experience in every respect, with a story build up that is poised to make the wait for episode three feel even longer.

    As a simple hack and slash game, ORC: Vengeance is a good fit for mobile. But while it may look the part of a console or PC quality game, it lacks much of the depth and customization of its dungeon crawling contemporaries.
