    A vast improvement on episode four, and gets the series back to where it should be, containing emotional moments and lots of action.

    Aaru’s Awakening is a beautiful frolic into a world of nightmares and imbalance: championed by its hand-drawn art style, compulsive level of difficulty and thrilling sense of achievement.

    Life is Strange presents an intriguing story but one that is yet to find its feet.

    Bethesda have taken the grandiose essence of The Elder Scrolls and diluted it into an MMORPG with some success, but there's still a way to go to fully realise that ambition.

    So, episode three is your typical middle episode, then. Full of exposition for the most part and then giving you a twist that makes you wish episode four was out tomorrow.

    Toybox Turbos is Micro Machines, and that’s no bad thing. Pull three friends together (online or off) and the classic, fast paced, anarchic fun of elimination mode could last for hours. The game still lacks in single player thrills, but that’s an acceptable caveat now that I can once more get together with mates for a few laps around the breakfast table

    More than meets the eye, but won't be to everyone's taste.

    People expecting true greatness will be slightly disappointed. A worthy offering and an improvement over Dragon Age II, Inquisition nevertheless plays it too safe, and relies too heavily on Origins’ better elements to succeed. Still, if you’re looking for a vast, complex, multi-branching, old school RPG epic, there’s currently nothing else on next-gen consoles to top it.

    Get to Work introduces some brilliant interactive careers with workplaces being brought to the table for the first time, but is let down by its barely-average retail system which leaves you wanting so much more.

    Toukiden Kiwami isn’t going to win any prizes for originality, it wears its influences on its sleeve and isn’t ashamed to parade them. It’s not the best looking game ever, but the visuals are functional and don’t falter when things start to get hairy.

    Horrifying environments and enemies keep you on your toes, but a few choice mechanics can be frustrating and detract from immersion.

    It is fast becoming the case that the formula is becoming a little stale, and although the games are nice and inoffensive enough, it’s becoming harder and harder to shake the feeling that you’re just playing the same game, again.

    While Cersei and Ramsay's omission is felt and backdrops still haven't improved on episode one, the story remains strong and Castle Black sticks out as a big highlight for Game of Thrones fans.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Balls-out fun with the undisputed King of carnage, but it won't win over new players.

    Dying Light keeps the best bits of Dead Island, forgets to get rid of the bad, but makes up for it with awesome parkour and a tense day/night dynamic.

    No longer a Tiger Woods game in name, but you do wish they had retained more of the older ideas. But while there's not much content here, it still plays a superb game of golf.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A solid dungeon-crawling RPG with enough inventiveness to keep you entertained for a fair while.
    • 76 Metascore

    Revelations 2 continues at a rate of knots, upping the action in favour or slowing the actual story exposition a little.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A solid enough party game that does little to encourage solo play.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A stunning action game that relies on story and performance over padding and tacked-on game modes, The Order: 1886 will nonetheless divide gamers with its short run time and reliance on cinematic dazzle.

    Solid AI and intelligent level design add up to one of Cyanide’s best games, and hint at the possibility of future greatness for this fledgling franchise.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A decent puzzle game that doesn't overstay its welcome.
    • 68 Metascore

    It has derivative elements, undoubtedly, but they’re clearly meant as homage and built upon rather than outright aped. It’s not a showy, flashy, trailer-friendly game..., and it’s not going to set the universe aflame with its functional, stock storyline – but it is immensely compelling all the same. Dark, brutal and challenging, Lords of the Fallen is a surprisingly deep and playable game, and could be one of this year’s most promising new IPs.

    The lack of minigame variety brings the score down a few notches, along with some confusing menus and lack of tutorials. The kids won’t care about any of that stuff, though.

    The Typing of the Dead is stark-raving bonkers, yes, but it’s that lunacy that keeps you wanting to play.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It’s worth a go if you’re a fan of either series, and you won’t be disappointed by the story – just be prepared to invest plenty of time to see it through.

    A Machine for Pigs achieves exactly what it sets out to do, and weaves an interesting and engaging narrative around a core of pure terror. It has some shortcomings, and fans of the original may be slightly disappointed with the removal of certain features, but the game is still terrifying, immersive and well crafted.

    Deep but confusing strategy layered over classic Dynasty Warriors.

    Gamers who enjoyed the past Nintendo DS games will find plenty of new content and ideas at play to encourage them back – especially as the extra 3DS development time has brought the features more in-line with the Wii U version.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A wealth of content to keep you busy, but you need a good group of like-minded, hardened criminals in order to make the most of it.
