    MAG
    Your mileage will vary greatly in this epic-scale shooter that rewards only the most dedicated.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ludicrously expensive given both the format and the age of the game, but a loving adaptation of one of the best ever 2D shooters.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best Dungeon Siege ever is a more of a compliment than you might think in this accessible and fun action role-player.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly satisfying end to a highly uneven season of adventures, which manages to show off both the best and worst of Telltale’s storytelling craft.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Repetition and overfamiliarity are always the best ways to nullify fear, but until they set in this is one of the most effectively scary video games ever made.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The most realistic and versatile soldier sim ever made, but also the most bug-ridden and inscrutable – with an initial release that is missing a lot of promised features.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A mess of compromises and sops to more casual gamers and yet somehow the game still manages to offer a fun and accessible facsimile of real air combat.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It has sadly little to do with the original Xbox game but this is still a competent little stealth adventure, even if the Riddick connection is of arguable benefit to it.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Clever and consistently inventive platformer, with a disarmingly powerful storyline… plus some of the strangest visuals this side of Katamari Damacy.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Much more than a poor man's Ico, the low tech presentation hides a consistently charming and well constructed puzzle adventure.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A streamlined port with intelligent controls, this massively multipleyer online strategy overcomes visual disability and tutorial woes to offer horizons of exciting possibility.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There’s not a lot that the Wii U can really do to improve the Wii Fit experience but this is still a useful entry point for the exercise averse.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a technical tour de force for the PSP, but also one sequel to many for a series that is in dire need of a reboot - or perhaps simply a rest.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A cleverly original strategy game that won’t be challenging the genre’s greats but does offer fun multiplayer at a reasonable price.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good excuse to experiment with BioShock Infinite’s often underrated combat, but the overall experience still feels somewhat underwhelming.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best looking games ever, but also one of the least ambitious in terms of anything else.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not clear what the four year wait was in aid of but despite only a few, small, new ideas this is still one of the best Tower Defense games on any format.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It doesn't even try to reinvent the fighting game genre or itself, but this is still the most enjoyable – and accessible - Tekken has been in years.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still one of the best and most original tactical action games around, although the compromises outweigh the small number of improvements on the PSP.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The king of puzzlers has rarely had more options but the lacklustre presentation and whiff of exploitation leaves a slightly sour taste.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The reason the PC version works better is simply down to the keyboard and mouse controls, which allow for much faster and responsive movement.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Donkey Kong Country is still no classic platformer, but this reboot comes surprisingly close to rivaling modern Super Marios.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Definitely the best Spider-Man game for several years, but it falls short of the character's full potential and the high watermark of Spider-Man 2.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not the silly novelty it might sound like but one of the most enjoyably addictive and cleverly original action stealth games on the PlayStation 3.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    On the PC there are too few new features to satisfy existing fans, but on the PlayStation 4 the joys of being an island dictator still feel enjoyably fresh.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An even more bare bones collection than on home consoles - even if it does include the best portable version of Snake Eater so far.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are some issues with game difficultly and length, but this is one of the most successful Kickstarters so far – and an excellent retro style role-player in its own right.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Possibly the most impressive use of 3D amongst all the launch games, and despite some obvious gripes a good solid football sim to boot.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best WWE game for years, which may seem like faint praise but WWE 2K16 works as both a sports sim and a quality fighter in its own right.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent remaster of an imperfect but hugely endearing action adventure, that completely justifies the ongoing plans for a sequel.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun, funny, and wonderfully gory 2D shooter, but it’s not quite as tightly designed as OlliOlli and certainly lacks the same longevity.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As polished a product as Rockstar has ever produced but the action and storytelling are rigidly one note, and neither is sustained for long enough.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A worthy follow-up to Deadly Premonition, although whether it earns the same classic status will depend largely on the subsequent episodes.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Unoriginal and blandly presented, but an effective vindication of Move - with at least half of the games being the best ever adaptations of their sports.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Far Cry Primal is a perfectly entertaining game, but it’s a hard one to get too excited about, especially when it seems as if only a few twists would’ve turned it into something considerably more interesting. As it is though it suffers from needlessly basic storytelling and a general lack of vision. Although it’s no disaster it does feel like a backwards step for Far Cry, and gives no real hint as to what its evolutionary future could or should be.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the most beautiful video games ever made and if the gameplay isn't quite as angelic it's perfectly righteous in its own way.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A great Metroid game and a great Aliens tie-in, and only a few rough edges stop this from being a minor classic all of its own.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The action and storytelling fails to satisfy, but the dense atmosphere and uncompromisingly bleak setting almost makes up for the gameplay failings.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Jeff Minter rides again, but in a considerably more laidback and accessible action puzzler that's very well suited to the iPhone.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Like any good firework display this fun platformer retains its charm even after the novelty runs out.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's still plenty of the old Assassin's Creed magic in parts, but this proves an unnecessary sequel and one with few genuinely welcome new ideas.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Repetition and overfamiliarity are always the best ways to nullify fear, but until they set in this is one of the most effectively scary video games ever made.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The usual mix of the mundane, the inspired, and the not quite fully-formed, but at least two of the five maps are minor classics.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best version of the worst Disgaea might be for fans only but it's still a great strategy role-player.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Between the gorgeous graphics, solid combat, and multiple game modes this impressive fighter isn’t necessarily just for anime fans.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An impressively ambitious attempt to open up game modding to everyone, although at the moment the action is curiously backwards.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A remake more than a reinvention, but one that retains all the simple gameplay and outrageous gore that made the original games fun.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fantasy enemies clearly work very well with Far Cry, but this abridged version of the main game really should be having more fun with its characters than this.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Lego does real-time strategy and makes it look easy - rather too easy as far as the difficultly goes.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best MOBAs on any console and a good introduction to the genre in general, thanks to its more console-friendly controls and fun premise.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent update of an almost forgotten British classic, and a promising start to the Gremlin Presents series.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent portable flight sim that will please both series fans and newcomers - until they realise how short and underdeveloped it is.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The old Guitar Hero magic is still there but the almost complete lack of new ideas isn't going to do anything to halt the decline in music game sales.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The problem is there's very little extra of any importance and much of what there is doesn't work that well.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A hugely ambitious space strategy that rivals even Civilization in terms of presentation and addiction - despite a few rogue elements.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It might be a clone but none have copied Diablo more expertly than this bargain-priced tribute.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not the best the series has to offer, and it's clearly just a PlayStation 3 port, but Disgaea was made for portables and has never worked better than on the PS Vita.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It has more in common with the original Homeworld than it first seems, but this new real-time strategy works best as an introduction rather than a continuation.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A wonderfully imaginative and beautifully presented interactive anime, but one that cannot maintain a regular enough supply of surprises to justify even its short running time.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It feels more like an expansion than a sequel, and misses some easy opportunities to improve on the original, but this is still the best family-friendly shooter outside of Splatoon.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A strategy role-player that is filled with clever ideas and inspires great empathy with your characters, even if the battle system is a few steps behind XCOM.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's only a slightly better game than last time but that's almost irrelevant given the impossible range and complexity of virtual objects at your command.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    50 Cent's second game is an enjoyable slice of dumb fun that has plenty to teach more serious shooters.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good collection of new maps, including one of the best remakes in the series. Exo Zombies still seems very derivative, but the co-op action remains solid throughout.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It may not be fair to compare it to Angry Birds, but it is fair to say this is a slick but slightly listless clone of The Incredible Machine.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun, funny, and wonderfully gory 2D shooter, but it’s not quite as tightly designed as OlliOlli and certainly lacks the same longevity.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An open-ended puzzler whose only real restrictions are how imaginative you're willing to be in wielding its wonderfully bizarre gadgets.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fairly straightforward arcade conversion, but still a unique mix between fighter and shoot 'em-up.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An impressive mix of game styles, and some of the most rewarding speed runs in recent memory, but that only increases the speed at which levels start to blur into each other.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still a fantastically well-designed action adventure, but this is easily the worst version of the best superhero game ever made.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly daring mix of interactive narrative, role-playing game and life simulator - and nothing like the lazy cash-in you'd expect.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good value compilation and three of the best Tomb Raiders ever - even if none of them quite deserve classification as a classic.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best console real-time strategies in a smaller, easily digested (or at least afforded) form.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The Duke himself is an outdated embarrassment, but his best game was always ahead of its time – and still has much to teach modern shooters.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The new gold standard in console real-time strategies, and one that isn't afraid to invent new ideas as well as reinterpret old ones.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A low-brow mix of Resident Evil 4 and No More Heroes, that is far from the best from either creator but still a fun and subversive shooter.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Arguably gaming's most authentic crime story, as well as an excellent roaming beat 'em-up and (thug) life simulator.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ambitious, unpolished, and very demanding – in short an impressively authentic update of the '80s classic and an action strategy hybrid almost without compare in the current generation.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An unusually innovative combat system that, although lacking the game structure to properly exploit it, still offers some enjoyably bizarre entertainment.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best Kinect games so far and also one of the most successful Pixar tie-ins. Kids will love it and it'd take a seriously cynical adult not to feel the same way.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Grand Slam Tennis was a false start after all, as Sega demonstrates the full potential of Wii MotionPlus.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A dream come true for Beatles fans, but viewed purely as a game it's not a patch on Rock Band 2.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A clever mix of puzzle, stealth, and action that manages to avoid most frustrations thanks to a constant stream of new ideas and a knowing sense of humour.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you accept its purposeful limitations this is one of the few successful attempts to ensure creating your own games is as much fun as playing them.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another quietly competent downloadable compilation, with five new competitive maps that show Call Of Duty at its close quarters best.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid if predictable start to the new season, but still one of Telltale's better graphic adventures.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Probably the best Final Fantasy game on mobile and a good example of how to play fair with both nostalgia and free-to-play microtransactions.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Much like the film, this is more a testament to what worked before than a genuinely new experience, but it makes the best of its voice cast and an obvious love for Star Wars.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best portable real-time strategy game ever made - even if most of the credit belongs to Blizzard not Gameloft.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid start to Black Ops III’s DLC schedule, with two standout maps and only one actively bad one.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not the greatest, or best value for money, version of the game but a surprisingly decent port that still has all the same undead charm.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It would've been overlooked as a retail release, but as a download this unique puzzler is a real bargain.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are too few surprises when it comes to the story and Daud is a disappointingly blunt instrument, but a return to Dunwall is welcome no matter who’s conducting the tour.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best survival horrors of recent years, that functions almost as well as the Wii U version. creating a mature-rated adventure that is as ruthlessly difficult as it is engrossing.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another incremental improvement that adds some welcome new features but fails to fix old ones.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A welcome reboot of a great rhythm action game, although the lack of new ideas and disappointing soundtrack leaves things a little off kilter.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best console version yet of the PC hit - and accessible enough to suit even real-time strategy haters.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Never quite as good as the smart writing and clever ideas seem to promise, but still a thoroughly entertaining parody of the best of 2D Zelda.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Treat it as an HD remaster of the N64 game and this is actually one of the best Mario Tennis games since then, but the lack of features and extra content is a real turn-off.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A perfect example of the sort of game only the PSP can provide and a surprisingly progressive Japanese role-player to boot.
