    The game has the look and feel of an easier-going version of Trials, but it's actually quite challenging. [June 2012, p.29]

    It stubbornly refuses to capitalise on its full potential, but Prototype 2 is still a whole lot of fun. [July 2012, p.64]

    Worthwhile for fans, but it's not up there with the rest of the series. [Aug 2012, p.70]

    A worthy high-score distraction. [Aug 2012, p.31]

    If you haven't played these before, the console release is for you. For super fans, the Vita version is still highly enjoyable. [Sept 2012, p.75]

    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun and clever attempt at something fresh that doesn't quite live up to its full potential. [Sept 2012, p.77]

    It's hard to fault Lego Batman 2, but it's hard to get very excited about it either. [Sept 2012, p.79]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable, addictive rhythm experience with some great music, but it's not quite up there with the genre's best. [Oct 2012, p.67]

    It's great fun, but the touch screen will never be ideal because your finger is occasionally going to cover up incoming bullets. [Oct 2012, p.25]

    • 70 Critic Score
    A briefly mesmerizing trip backwards through sonic space that never quite coalesces into an essential purchase. [Nov 2012, p.64]

    Tight, solid fun. [Nov 2012, p.72]

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

    A walk, drive, and jump down a whole city of memory lanes, but don't expect any of them to take you anywhere new. [Dec 2012]

    While players, new and old, may shrug off the new Pandaren race for its lack of ferocity, Blizzard actually did a good job with producing interesting content that enriches the gameplay of World of Warcraft. [Dec 2012]

    DOA5 plays it too safe, coming across as more of a revision or remake of DOA4 than a full sequel in its own right. [Dec 2012]

    In its attempt to make the Forza brand more accessible, Horizon has delivered a ride that is fun for brief spurts yet doesn't reward mastery of the vehicles within. [Dec 2012]

    The art style is neat and the gameplay solidly addictive. [Dec 2012, p.29]

    ZombiU is too packed full of controls and gameplay ideas to make a cohesive whole, but it's still a welcome addition to the genre. [Jan 2013, p.58]

    Depending on what you're after, it's either the best or worst CoD ever. If you only play multiplayer, jump in without reservations. [Jan 2013, p.62]

    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Some great level design hampered by some poor companion AI and sometimes inadequate controls. [Jan 2013, p.70]

    Funkifies the tedium of airport security with aplomb. [Jan 2013, p.31]

    There are a few dud mini-games, but Nintendo Land does a good job at highlighting the strengths of the new system and the potential of asymmetric multiplayer. [Feb 2013, p.64]

    It's the ability to check opponents that is the real highlight of the violence. [Feb 2013, p.80]

    Flawed, and the new Dante isn't as cool as he thinks - but the gameplay is as sterling as ever. There's plenty to love, but fans will be divided. [March 2013, p.74]
