    • 86 Metascore

    An excellent expansion that focuses on a fascinating period in history, and helps to make the perfect toe-dipping experience for strategy newcomers.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Ask not what Rock Band 3 can do for you, but whether you have the commitment (and a large enough wallet) to make the most out of it.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It could do with a few more ancillary options, and a more interesting backstory, but in terms of online gameplay Titanfall is now the game to beat this gen.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An evolutionary improvement on the original and by consequence one of the best co-operative first person shooters ever made.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A hugely successful sequel, that's as surefooted as its hero when it comes to handling its enormous scale and near endless range of features.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A carefully considered sequel that avoids upsetting existing fans and offers an olive branch to newcomers – all the while retaining its position as one of the most challenging, and rewarding, video games of modern times.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Easily Bethesda's best game yet, with an impossibly detailed and beautiful game world and a new gold standard for Western style role-playing.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The lack of innovation is a shame, but the attention to detail and superb multiplayer is beyond criticism.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best arcade racer of not just this year but this whole generation of consoles, with an unrivalled sense of speed and the sheer joy of competition.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The landmark script and puzzles override the bland artwork as the classic graphic adventure returns.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It was always the definitive scrolling beat 'em-up but this Xbox Live Arcade release goes the extra mile with a loving revamp of one of gaming's great co-op experiences.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The same euphoric mix of interactive gameplay, visuals and music as the Xbox 360, but while it loses the immersion of Kinect it gains a gorgeous new 3D mode.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A stunning technical achievement but also an evolutionarily leap in adult storytelling and intelligent action gameplay.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The text adventure is reborn as one of the smartest and most engrossing interactive stories of the year, and with one of the best touchscreen interfaces ever seen.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the best third person actioners of all time manages to make Dante and Kratos look like amateurs.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best non-Mario platformer ever made and a stunning work of imagination, where the visuals, music, and gameplay all resonate in perfect harmony.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A great version of one of the best fighting games, and therefore one of the best multiplayer games, of all time - assuming you have the dedication for it.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A near perfect remastering of a classic strategy game, that succeeds not just because of nostalgia but because there’s never been anything else quite like Homeworld.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Few games warrant the HD treatment as much as these two – on both a technical and artistic level – in what remain towering examples of the art of interactive entertainment.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A good value compilation for what remains a stunningly ambitious mix of interactive storytelling, compelling action, and sci-fi spectacle.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A masterpiece in physics-based destruction and one of the most entertaining ways to fall out with friends ever devised.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A startlingly well realised iteration of GTA that even does some things better than the home consoles.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A great ending to a landmark trilogy. A near perfect mix of action and storytelling, where the personal drama is as engrossing as the galaxy-spanning battles.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Not just a great crossover game but a highly distinctive fighter in its own right, with some of the most innovative - and accessible - ideas to hit the genre in years.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An inspired reinvention of multiplayer brawling, that carves out a whole new action genre for itself and those brave enough to learn its ins and outs.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A hugely impressive use of last gen tech that is only slightly inferior to the Xbox One version, and as such one of the best online shooters of the last several years.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Probably the best dungeon crawler in the world, including Diablo III. And what it lacks in storytelling and originality it makes up with pitch perfect design and pacing.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A milestone game for BioWare, where character-driven drama proves just as engrossing as the combat.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A colossal achievement in technical terms, with a level of interaction with the game world and its inhabitants that is unsurpassed in modern video games.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Superbly successful action role-player that allows you to live a full fantasy life of your choosing.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the most impressive indie titles of the year and arguably the most cinematic and accessible 2D shooter of the modern era.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Still a stunning achievement in both storytelling and third person adventure, and although this is the definitive version the differences are still minor.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Possibly the best Grand Theft Auto game never made and one of the most atmospheric video games ever.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    As usual the new play controls add little, but this is still a good deal for such classic games.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Describing it as an online community arts program is possibly not the most enticing of descriptions, but it's nevertheless the most accurate.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An excellent expansion to what remains the PlayStation 4’s best exclusive, and one of the most enjoyable retro shooters of the decade.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A near perfect combination of rallying old and new, that gives precedence to neither and remains accessible to all.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Always a jewel in the Zelda crown, and this remake successfully smooths out some of its rough edges – without losing the edgy appeal of Link’s most unique adventure.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A hugely imaginative take on a deeply conservative genre, which shows one of 2D gaming's best developers at the very height of their talents.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Exactly as entertaining as you’d expect from a collaboration between two of Japan’s most talented developers, and a relatively good – if extremely belated – PC port.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Bravely uncompromising in terms of the freedom it offers the player and its willingness to go against current trends in gaming, Dishonored is adult video-gaming at its best.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A perfect mix of retro and modern sensibilities that loses none of the charm or accessibility of the originals, but adds a great deal more variety.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best exclusive on the PS3 is also one of this gen's greatest (and most attractive) action adventures.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    As far as we're concerned this is easily the best Gears Of War game, but it's also one that refines and exhausts every gameplay element to such a degree that it seems like a far more final end to the trilogy than Epic probably intended. If there are more games, and we assume there will be, they're going to have to be significantly different to seem worthwhile.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The landmark script and puzzles override the bland artwork as the classic graphic adventure returns.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It offers little progress from the PC version, but then none is really needed in what is a masterclass in minimalist video game design.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Indie gaming sires another 2D classic, with a platformer that offers more freedom and intrigue than almost anything else on Xbox Live Arcade - or beyond.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A serious game for serious minds or a fun and surprisingly accessible stealth shooter. Just as it should be, the choice is always yours.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The name and anime aesthetic may seem off-putting, but combined with the original this is some of the most engaging interactive storytelling of the modern era.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Its claim to being combat-evolved grows ever more tenuous, but Bungie's last Halo is still the most fully featured first person shooter ever.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are minor improvements here but the next gen versions of Lego Marvel still rely on charm and fan service more than technical finesse.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are some welcome advances here over Fallout 3 but they risk being drowned out by the cripplingly poor technology that still powers the game.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Superb mix of role-playing, puzzle and strategy action, with gorgeous new HD graphics and an addictive online mode.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very worthwhile upgrade of the portable original, that stands up well in terms of visuals and easily exceeds Resident Evil 6 in terms of atmosphere and intrigue.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent port from the PC, which maintains all of the original's innovative open-endedness and most of its graphical prowess.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Viewed on its own merits it’s a highly entertaining and feature-packed video game, and that’s all that really matters.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    EA beats Nintendo at its own game with a keep-fit package that seems substantially more useful than Wii Fit.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not only one of Cave's best 2D shooters but one of the definitive entries in the whole genre, with a deep weapons system and dazzling pyrotechnics.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may not have changed very much from last year's entry but what small improvements there are still makes this the best F1 racer of the modern era.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It can be a little inconsistent in terms of both actions and puzzles but late entry or not this is one of the funniest and best-presented adventures of the year.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A clever spin on the MOBA genre that strips away the complications and nerdy presentation to create a fast-paced but deceptively complex action strategy game.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are some inherent limitations with playing a four-player fighting game on a 3DS but this overcomes almost all of them, to become one of the portable’s definitive multiplayer games.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best combat flight sim ever on a console, with a huge range of aircraft and locations - as well as difficultly settings to suit every kind of gamer.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Punishingly and infuriatingly hard, but also the best retro-inspired platform puzzler for years.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best new music title for years and a significant improvement on the first game, with almost every complaint from the original addressed.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Business as usual with a mediocre single-player campaign and one of the best multiplayer experiences in all gaming – and at last one that works just as well on consoles as on PC.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Professor Layton may offer a more cerebral challenge but Rhythm Thief has more than enough charm and imagination to waltz its way into your affections.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Achingly beautiful god sim that struggles at times over structure and difficultly curve, but never in terms of spectacle or vision.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Its goals and improvements may be more modest than the last game but this is still an enjoyable return trip to Italy - especially in the company of friends.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best remakes ever, but also a puzzle platformer that defies its age to offer an enjoyable challenge to gamers both young and old.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a better shooter, but the overfamiliar plot and setting makes for a less interesting game overall.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not quite a killer app but certainly the best New Super Mario Bros. game so far, and an occasionally inspired 2D platformer in its own right.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The iPhone's best game emerges from the shadow of LocoRoco as one of the best portable puzzlers ever.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A shamefully shoddy port of the 360 version, but still a superbly designed action game underneath.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Arkanoid is finally superseded as the best Breakout clone around in this enjoyable retro update.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The third time is still lucky for the best version yet of one the greatest ever Japanese role-players.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The pace of innovation is only fractionally slower in the second expansion to Relic's superb action strategy, with plenty to entertain new fans and old.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Some of the best multiplayer action ever seen on the PC, although not without its issues - as well as a deeply disappointing single-player campaign.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very promising start to what is mechanically just another Telltale adventure, but where the comedy and characterisation feels very different to their more recent games.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A vast improvement on the first episode and a suitably ambitious send-off for both BioShock Infinite and the people that made it.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may not be the deepest of fighters but it is one of the most entertaining and imaginative, not to mention bug-eyed crazy.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A genuine improvement on the original and so stuffed with content that you’ll need several new Final Fantasy games before another sequel is necessary.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Wonderfully presented and impressively imaginative 2D action puzzler, that almost seems too good for DSiWare.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best ever multiplayer stealth games and one of the most successful attempts yet at the perfect heist game.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Its similarities to Portal will be obvious to everyone and in terms of puzzles this is very much its equal, but in terms of script and characters… not so much.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    More complex and yet also more accessible than ever, with an incredibly in-depth simulation of WWII.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best arcade racer for years and a magnificent spectacle that makes racing exciting again.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Utterly charming on (literally) every level, it may not offer much in terms of fast action but this is just as imaginative and engrossing as any Super Mario game.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent update of the classic old beat 'em-up that maintains the iconic two-player mode and adds some welcome new enhancements.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A mostly successful mix of the best of classic and modern era Resident Evil, with some of the most enjoyably unique co-op options of any recent game.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An extremely successful attempt to reproduce Dota style action strategy on consoles, with a game that's considerably more accessible than its inspirations.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Watching paint dry really can be entertaining, in this relentlessly cheerful mix of platformer and interactive colouring book.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent port of Capcom's gloriously insane crossover fighter. It may not have the depth of Street Fighter but in the short term at least it's just as entertaining.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Punishingly and infuriatingly hard, but also the best retro-inspired platform puzzler for years, and a very successful port to the 3DS.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Nintendo sports title for several years and although it offers little in terms of innovation it’s certainly not short of content or addictive fun.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s not perfect but The Walking Dead is one of the most important advances in interactive fiction for a generation, with some of the most memorable characters of any video game.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Another inspired descent into bullet hell from the masters at Cave, and one that has both an unusual amount of tactical depth and yet remains surprisingly accessible.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It can be a little inconsistent in terms of both actions and puzzles but late entry or not this is one of the funniest and best-presented adventures of the year.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The premier MMA title that will appeal to all fight fans, whether you like the sport or not.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Superb mix of role-playing, puzzle and strategy action, wrapped up in a very palatable fantasy package.
