    Delightful and clever, but also a bit limited. [Sept 2013, p.74]

    Although it can be a bit frustrating it's also very addictive. [Oct 2012, p.25]

    If you're down with the pet system, you'll find this game to be a highlight of the series. [Nov 2012, p.81]

    The Pre-Sequel hits a sweet spot where it isn't cringe worthy but rather a celebration of the Australian sense of humour. [Issue#255, p.39]

    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's the verve at the game's core that's heartening. [Sept 2013, p.84]

    • 80 Metascore
    • 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]
    • Hyper Magazine
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Old fashioned in all the right ways (and some wrong ones too). [Issue#255, p.60]

    Definitely inspired by the Souls games, Lords of the Fallen still has enough brutal majesty to stand on its own. [Issue#255, p.66]
    • Hyper Magazine
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    On its own merits, it's an utter joy...but it's also pretty clearly a primer for the Wii U version. [Issue#255, p.68]

    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Cherry picks the best parts of a number of other racing games to wonderful effect. [Issue#255, p.72]

    • 92 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A gorgeous, compelling, exciting turn-based strategy game. [Issue#255, p.76]

    • 83 Metascore

    This is a great time-killer. [Issue#255, p.76]

    The free-to-play cash-grabbery is invasive, but the game is a lot of fun. [Issue#255, p.77]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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]

    A great reinterpretation of what makes Mario work. [March 2013, p.72]

    It's forceful, gotta give it that. [Issue#251, p.82]

    For 99c it's an absolute steal. [March 2013, p.27]

    • 78 Metascore

    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]
    • Hyper Magazine
    • 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]

    A few hours of solid entertainment. [Nov 2012, p.29]

    Solid, strategic fun. [Nov 2012, p.29]

    The fast pace, the offbeat humour, the randomness...it was a bit like being trapped in a giant Pachinko machine, which would go some way towards why the Japanese like it so much. [Issue#235]

    With the possible exception of the Katamari games, there are few other series that have as good a grasp on scale as God of War. [Issue#235]

    It has enough depth and twisted charisma to make it worth your time. [May 2014, p.70]

    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent combination of detailed combat mechanics, gripping progression, and well thought out pay-to-play options. [May 2014, p.72]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Utterly generic but brilliant fun nevertheless. Shame about the perfunctory ending, though. [May 2014, p.74]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Solidly built and continually compelling. [May 2014, p.82]

    Threes is the sort of game that exists purely to ruin your life, to make you regret ever buying your damn smart phone. [May 2014, p.83]

    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid and well-produced installment that aims for console heights but delivers more of the same. [Dec 2012]
