    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]

    There's a lot of charm. [Feb 2013, p.31]

    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]

    A tighter focus on multiplayer modes would have helped with the online population. It's definitely worth the budget price, though. [March 2013, p.81]

    Could've used touch-ups in existing areas, but hey. [Apr 2013, p.64]

    Some excellent ideas and multiplayer fun but not enough content as yet. [Apr 2013, p.76]

    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's funny and weird, if not a whole lot of fun past the first 15 minutes - but for that price, that's enough. [Apr 2013, p.23]

    Crysis 3 reunites the outfit with a voice, Prophet, and his supposed buddy, Psycho and tells you that only one set of sentient long-johns can save the world. It’s a functional excuse for the action but uninspired, much like the bulk of the game. [Issue#235]

    Despite the niggles and lack of meaningful exploration, Mirror of Fate is still quite enjoyable. [May 2013, p.77]

    The central platforming is fun and the three characters are charming but Thieves in Time often feels both archaic and uninspired. [May 2013, p.78]

    A fantastic tablet racing game, but one that greatly overestimates its own importance and value with slow progress and expensive in-app purchases. [May 2013, p.81]

    It's Gears 3, minus pacing and ambition. It's still fantastically enjoyable, but it's easily the least interesting Gears game. [June 2013, p.64]

    In the case of Shootmania Storm, access to a thriving community is really needed. [June 2013, p.70]

    Bitterback isle is a wonderful dungeon and a pleasure to explore, but as a package Dark Arisen is let down by Capcom's cynical attempt to squeeze more cash out of dedicated fans. [June 2013, p.74]

    Better late than never, P4 Arena is a strange beast that is at turns both satisfying and terribly long-winded. [June 2013, p.76]

    Codemasters' down the line look at racing doesn't quite make it to the final podium. [July 2013, p.74]

    Devoid of tactical depth and exhaustingly repetitive - yet somehow still entertaining and enjoyable, if taken in moderation. [Sept 2013, p.76]

    The Last of Us meets The Sims, mashed, salted and served with a few lumps. [Oct 2013, p.64]

    It is challenging, rewarding and frustrating, though it could use a bit more personality. [Oct 2013, p.70]

    Better than it has any right to be, but still deeply flawed. [Nov 2013, p.68]

    It's not all smooth sailing, but there's still some rich pirate booty to discover if you're up for it. [Nov 2013, p.70]
