    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A competent and unexciting update to a competent and unexciting puzzler, which is not nearly praise enough to forgive the optimistically high price.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Not one of the best map packs Call Of Duty has ever seen, and yet for some reason one of the most expensive. Being Michael Myers is fun though.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A good HD remake but the game itself doesn’t really warrant the attention, with too many unfulfilled promises that even its sequels failed to make good on.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The storytelling is as well up to Telltale’s usual standards, but waiting three months for such a short and relatively uneventful episode is unavoidably anticlimactic.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Another amusing look behind the veil of role-playing conventions, although it’s a shame the experience feels so slight and insubstantial.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A slight improvement on the first episode, but still basically just plot set-up for a story that too often feels out of your hands.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The graphics are a great advert for the power of the PlayStation 4, but in terms of gameplay and story this hasn’t moved on at all from the previous generation.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Kinect is still a solution in search of a problem, and while this is an impressive tech demo it’s a largely uninteresting video game experience.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The next gen space combat simulator now plays almost as good as it looks, even if there are still many more improvements needed.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    One of the weakest Lego games of recent times, and not just because the formula is getting old but because The Hobbit isn’t a particularly good fit for it.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Less than the sum of its many and varied parts, Mercenary Kings never gets the mix of modern and retro influences right – apart from with the amazing visuals.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The component games are better than the first time round but less well suited to the mini-game format, resulting in two unsatisfying halves of what could have been the perfect retro compilation.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Suitably outrageous and undeniably fun, but even fans of the source material will be disappointed at a fighting game that values spectacle over substance.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A very British sense of humour and a compelling mix of Metal Gear and DayZ, but the randomised maps and dispiriting endgame does it no favours.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A so-so episode, which relies too much on cliché and Clementine’s increasingly rapid transformation into a child superhero. But there’s still some effective drama despite it all.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Considering the one complaint about Titanfall was the lack of content this new DLC makes no effort to fill the gaps in the original package, although at least two of the maps are very good.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A surprisingly hesitant start to EA’s new sports series, in terms of both the amount of content and the disjointed action.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A small improvement on the last game but until the issues with the artificial intelligence and other bugs are fixed Sniper Elite will always be off target.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An always welcome celebration of one of the 16-bit era’s most innovative and cinematic arcade adventures, even if its gameplay irritations are even more obvious in today’s world.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Civilization on a smartphone (or tablet) is still an enticing prospect but this so-called sequel shows very little improvement over the original and is now missing a major play mode.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Some great ideas and fantastic graphics, but as fun as it is to see so many genres mixed together Abyss Odyssey doesn’t do any of them any real justice.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A competent but unsurprising slice of downloadable content that features a solid challenge and plenty of content, but too little in the way of new ideas.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Another uninspired expansion that features some enjoyable new enemies and encounters but fails to excite in the same way as the parent game.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The first Telltale finale where your choices carry true weight, but the inconsistent and contrived characterisation means it comes at considerable cost.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A game of two halves: the new Marvel adventure is awful but the improved Toy Box is good enough to inspire kids to make something much better themselves.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The most shamefully obvious clone of recent years, but although this copies most of Lemmings’ tricks it falls short in terms of both personality and addictiveness.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Rather than the future of survival horror this is merely a retread of its defining moments, and even then it rarely manages to equal what has gone before – let alone exceed it.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Even as downloadable content this would seem exploitative, but trying to pass it off as a new game is only a formula for disappointment and resentment.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    For a game obsessed with OTT violence and knob gags this is a surprisingly charming and likeable shooter, if an unavoidably shallow and repetitive one.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A poor swansong for Pandemic, with a few novel ideas spoilt by a host of badly copied gameplay mechanics.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The initial feelings of power and freedom hide another badly designed and unimaginative superhero sim.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Wet
    It wants to be an interactive grindhouse movie and it is: derivative, repetitive but mindless fun anyway.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A flight simulation so shallow you barely need to hold the joypad to become a top gun.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Microtransactions all but ruin this unusual real-time strategy and its flawed collectible card game.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A World War II-themed Splinter Cell, but with too many technical and design flaws to satisfy.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    What once was a dumb-but-fun alternative to GTA is reduced to a broken technical mess on the PC.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The combat is excellent but everything else disappoints in this overblown and unlikeable role-player.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The greatest puzzle with the DS's latest blockbuster, is why it's proven such an instant hit.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It may beat Gran Turismo for realism but the real trick here is making driving a Koenigsegg seem dull.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The Wolfenstein series has never felt older than in this unambitious and workmanlike sequel.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It should never have been made, but this abridged zombie slasher avoids being a complete disaster.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Hugely disappointing retro reboot that fails to offer any of the freedom or fun its premise suggests.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Low budget, low effort port of what is otherwise one of the PS2's more unfairly forgotten action games.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Another overly simplistic WiiWare puzzler, that benefits hardly at all from being a video game.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The oldest online role-player on the block is definitely showing its age, particularly on the DS.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    As shameless a clone of Geometry Wars as you could ever hope to see. But fairly good fun all the same.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    MegaTen's experiment in action role-playing continues, but it remains a flawed and repetitive ride.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Another disappointing slice of downloadable content, with little of what made the main game great.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A relatively ambitious WiiWare game, but whose many options never provide any truly riotous fun.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Exactly the game you'd expect to result from the film, with fun effects but no variety or depth.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The Windows timewaster comes to Xbox Live Arcade, but the only real addition is a hole in your wallet.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There's disappointingly little to get your teeth into in this only briefly entertaining consumable.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A not very dynamic comeback for Sony's other platforming duo in this repetitive and flawed adventure.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The closest you're ever likely to get to a new Wonder Boy, but this won't please fans new or old.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The third Guitar Hero game for the DS isn't as lazy as you'd think but the concept is still deeply flawed.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There are some clever ideas here, but like a good chestburster they haven't been given time to gestate.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Gaming's most prolific, but least pioneering, series ruins its best spin-off with an overdose of deja vu.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Another poorly constructed portable spin-off that brings us no closer to a real Battlefront III.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    After a solid few years the Dragon Ball games are regressing, particularly in this flawed fighter.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Everything but the gameplay is great - but as fun as creating your own stories may be, it's not enough.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Another perfectly crafted adventure that puts to shame most other retail games at five times its price.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Saw
    Not the worst tie-in of the year but one that runs out of ideas even more quickly than the films.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Beautiful to look at, and with some great puzzles, but the bland writing is even worse than Hotel Dusk.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The controls are superior to Overlord II, but the gameplay and difficulty is even more simplified.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An unexpectedly daring attempt to reinvent the series but one mired in technical and design flaws.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The works of both Dante Alighieri and David Jaffe are defiled in this shallow and puerile actioner.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Capcom's latest attempt to please a hardcore audience tries, and fails, to be God Of War on the Wii.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It pales next to other classic arcade racers, but at least this Need For Speed makes an effort.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Activision somehow finds a way to dumb down what was already an absurdly shallow action role-player.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Sega's new dumbed down sequel isn't a disaster but it requires little skill and proffers little satisfaction.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Some effort has gone into this ill-advised port, but it's still a pale shadow of the HD original.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    At last, Mama gets out of the kitchen and... into a perversely unenjoyable shopping simulator.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A disappointing second chapter that's short on comedy, game length and decent puzzles.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It looks great but LucasArts' arthouse styled platform puzzler simply isn't much fun to play.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A very slight improvement on the original but this is still a deeply flawed and unlikeable role-player.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The Turtle edition of Super Smash Bros. has the same ingredients but plays like week-old pizza.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An unusual open world samurai adventure, with plenty of authenticity but little spit and polish.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The least scary, least imaginative Resident Evil returns in a very slightly inferior Wii edition.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Not the fast action arcade game you might remember, but a low budget animal-fancying sim for girls.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Gauntlet with Pokemon is at least something different, but it's too repetitive and shallow to really work.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There are flashes of brilliance, but this graphic adventure lacks some very elementary features.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Backwards-looking and unnecessary tie-in/remake which leaves the Prince needing yet another reboot.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Strangely self-defeating downloadable expansion that strips out everything that made the original fun.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The old school origins are rather too obvious in this competent but predictable Japanese role-player.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Frustratingly beautiful graphic adventure that's sadly ruined by poor voiceovers and fuzzy logic.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Sega's legacy deserves a better celebration than this competent but unremarkable Mario Kart clone.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There's plenty of novelty value in seeing your games on TV, but it's one that wears off very quickly.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A failed attempt to expand the coin-op, with a fog of unnecessary extras keeping you from the good stuff.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Another largely pointless download that fails to capitalise on any of Mass Effect 2's achievements.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It looks amazing but baffling design decisions suck every ounce of fun out of this disappointing sequel.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Yet another inessential and senseless expansion that ignores all the best elements of the original.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Part massively multiplayer online game. Part Grand Theft Auto clone. All failure.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A dungeon-crawling mix of Disgaea and Atelier proves just as impenetrable and cliquey as it sounds.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Cheap, but not cheerful, first person shooter, with nothing new to offer the genre but change from £20.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This new episodic graphic adventure is mild cheddar compared to the original TV shorts and movie.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This doesn't solve any of the original's problems with storytelling and variety, it just makes them worse.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Technically a MMO racer, but also a clumsy rehash of some of the series' least interesting sequels.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The Age of Discovery has enough excitement and intrigue to fill a hundred video games, just not this timid and repetitive strategy game.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It looks the part, but this 18-rated Final Fight suffers from a repellent script and the usual descent into monotonous, skill-less button-bashing.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Ham-fisted controls and storytelling turn Samus into a clumsy blabbermouth, with a game that squanders all the series' best tricks and adds none of its own.
