    Subscription MMOs are dead. Guild Wars 2's size is incredible and its strong focus on exploration and community creates a bubbling liveliness. However, if you're looking for true innovation you will be left wanting. [Nov 2012, p.70]

    Not quite a masterpiece - but still pretty special. Ni no Kuni has the depth and artistic credibility to justify the partnership with Studio Ghibli. [March 2013, p.69]
