    Utterly broken right now, but the central appeal of four Halos on one disc is irresistible. [Issue#257, p.54]

    Enormous fun. [March 2014, p.76]

    Probably the best next gen exclusive we've seen so far. It's not perfect but a great return to form for Insomniac. [Issue#257, p.56]

    • 80 Critic Score
    High score focused mountain sliding is a perfect fit for the show. [March 2014, p.76]

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

    Maybe the most beautiful game you can run on your iPhone. [Issue#254, p.74]

    So THIS is why these games are so popular. [Issue#257, p.58]

    A real screen snapper. [Issue#254, p.75]

    Not without its flaws, Particulars is still a fine example of the amazing Australian indie scene. [Issue#257, p.62]
    • Hyper Magazine
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The main characters are somewhat derivative, but the narrative is thrilling. [Issue#257, p.68]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a fine sequel but plays it a little too safe for our liking. [Issue#257, p.70]
    • Hyper Magazine
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A vibrant, compact and ruthlessly difficult Metroidvania let down only slightly by its own (occasionally) insufferable self-awareness. [July 2013, p.81]
    • Hyper Magazine
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Great strategic action, made better by the addition of an open campaign. Some tutorials would have been nice. [Issue#257, p.71]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's short and perhaps too forgiving for some, but Sorcery is a fun romp that respects your decisions. [July 2013, p.83]
    • Hyper Magazine
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Super fun on your own, but needs more freedom in co-op. [Issue#257, p.72]

    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Escape Plan is decidedly artful and will please fans of Limbo - perhaps not quite as tightly woven, but a quiet achiever for the launch of the PS Vita to be sure. [May 2012, p.78]
    • Hyper Magazine
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A strong, smart, moderately lengthy adventure game. [July 2013, p.84]

    An extremely esoteric game, but discovering every single thing it offers doesn't really matter. [Issue#257, p.78]

    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Fantastic in its own right, Velocity could well be a stepping stone towards something incredible. [Sept 2012, p.68]
    • Hyper Magazine
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Excellent, but uneven, and almost certain to be divisive. Come for the bloated story mode, but stay for Mercenaries. [Nov 2012, p.62]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A reminder of why you want Darkstalkers 4 to happen so bad in more ways than a million. [May 2013, p.74]

    The difficulty is unrelenting. [May 2013, p.76]

    Despite some balance issues, Injustice is spectacular and satisfying, and should please many a DC comics fan. [June 2013, p.61]
