    Despite some balance issues, Injustice is spectacular and satisfying, and should please many a DC comics fan. [June 2013, p.61]
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Worth it for the first few hours of hopeless addiction, the satisfaction of encountering new creatures, and the enticing allure of testing out all the new equipment. [June 2013, p.84]

    A more coherent and compelling story than the first marred by an occasional lack of direction. [July 2013, p.66]

    A vibrant, compact and ruthlessly difficult Metroidvania let down only slightly by its own (occasionally) insufferable self-awareness. [July 2013, p.81]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score

    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Lacks a proper end game, but for the 12 odd hours it will take to finish the campaign is still a great deal of fun. [Aug 2013, p.66]
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great way back into the point and click genre - but be prepared to invest a little time. [Aug 2013, p.76]
    • 78 Metascore

    A few rough spots do little to tarnish this energetic and purely fun and unpretentious FPS. [Aug 2013, p.78]
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Surprisingly engaging and addictive, the strategic elements are challenging and it's just so darned irresistibly cute to boot. [Sept 2013, p.72]
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Delightful and clever, but also a bit limited. [Sept 2013, p.74]
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's the verve at the game's core that's heartening. [Sept 2013, p.84]

    • 80 Critic Score
    There's not a whole lot of variety to this one, but it's excellent fun all the same. [Sept 2013, p.84]
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The same game we loved last year, but portable, without multiplayer, and with significantly worse graphics. [Sept 2013, p.85]
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Like a "best of" The Walking Dead, 400 Days is brief and exciting, even if it feels a little more like a demo than a game. [Sept 2013, p.75]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The addition of Sealed Deck mode makes this the best Duels yet, but the requirement of microtransactions for deck slots leaves a rather sour taste. [Sept 2013, p.78]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may be a little buggy and unbalanced, but Rise of the Triad is a gleefully stupid and hugely entertaining retro shoot 'em up. [Oct 2013, p.62]
