    While it remains to be seen whether or not Ascension's multiplayer mode will receive the backing of a sizeable community, we can safely say that after eight years of making God of War games, Santa Monica Studio still knows how to craft an epic and enjoyable single-player experience unmatched in scale.

    Pokemon White Version 2 is unlikely to convert anyone who was previously unconvinced by the installments of old, or ensnare many newcomers from the older demographic, but the series has always had a Marmite quality to it.

    Puppeteer may not be perfect, but it's easy to forgive any minor gameplay transgressions when you have a title as beautiful and entertaining as this. Overshadowed though it may turn out to be, Puppeteer is worthy of a standing ovation.

    Joe Danger Infinity doesn't take the series to new heights, but the old daredevil still has plenty of life left in him.

    La-Mulana won't appeal to the more casual players. Instead, it's for those who are masochistic with a fondness for 'Metroidvania' games - but even then, a high level of patience is required to get the most enjoyment out of this indie title.

    Company of Heroes 2 is a worthy sequel to a classic RTS, honoring its roots and handling its subject matter with the utmost respect. There are times when it will feel very familiar to series veterans, but sticking to your guns is no bad thing when they have never let you down in the past.

    Sadly, the touchscreen controls are a bit lacking for the iOS port, making the paddle a little more sluggish than felt natural. The control issues are unfortunate, because Wizorb is otherwise a ridiculously charming evolution of the Breakout formula.

    Even so, find some good friends to play with, and RAD Soldiers is a very well done and balanced strategy game on the go.

    Touchgrind Skate 2 is a hard game to get into, with unconventional controls that lend themselves to an unforgiving learning curve. But the reward for overcoming those initial trials is high, and worth all the hardships along the way.

    Smash Hit is perfect as a quick pick up game anytime, and satisfying in a way that still doesn't lose its impact after weeks of repeated playthroughs.

    Even though the courtroom minigames can sometimes become a distraction, it is the strength of the writing – cleverly balancing drama, horror and humor – which immediately pulls you back into its intriguing web of mysteries and makes it difficult to put your Vita down.

    Everyone's experiences in Elite: Dangerous will be unique to them, and it only takes a couple of mesmerising ones to justify the early grind.

    For all of its drawbacks, when the whistle blows and the game kicks off, PES 2012 offers a satisfying, unpredictable and utterly enjoyable game of virtual football.

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive neither deviates from or significantly alters the principles the series is built upon, making it a fan-pleasing edition to the fold.

    A hugely enjoyable hack and slash title, with an incredibly satisfying combat system, memorable boss battles and an entertaining narrative.

    A hugely enjoyable open-world adventure which shouldn't fail to raise a smile. It would be criminal to ignore it.

    It's a blast, no matter how easy. Kirby Triple Deluxe, like its namesake, has the fine-tuned ability to suck you right in, no matter who you are.

    If you're prepared to put in the hours and make those fingers bleed, Rocksmith is the perfect learning tool, hitting all of the right notes and striking a chord with rock fans.

    Infamous: Second Son looks great and plays well enough, but ultimately, the combat, world and story never proves gripping enough to come back for more.

    Proteus is very much a niche title. Without any real objective or storytelling hook, the open-ended nature will no doubt bore some. That said, its attempts at emergent gameplay are commendable and worth experiencing if this type of game appeals to you.

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

    Football Manager has always been more than a game, but it is also more than a football product. It's both of these things in equal measure and updates of this quality will ensure that its legacy remains strong within the sport and among its fan base.

    Despite its name change Stealth Inc is very much still a bastard, though in the best of ways. It is brutally challenging, but never unfair.

    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.

    #IDARB already earns a spot as one of the Xbox One's premier party games based on its frantic multiplayer matches, striking a fine balance between skill-based competition and playful silliness.

    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.
