    • tbd Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A hugely disappointing remake that misunderstands everything that made the original great and turns a state-of-the-art blockbuster into a low rent timewaster.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It may be a good quality racer but this is also one of the most offensively cynical video games we’ve ever played, and despite being ‘free’ also one of the most expensive.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The real mystery here is why Nintendo continues to allow such a minimum effort cash grab to dilute the Pokémon name, in yet another bland and repetitive dungeon crawler.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A more noble failure than most Kinect games, but a failure all the same. And even beneath the control issues not a particularly good on-the-rails shooter.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The very worst thing about Declassified is that in reporting its failure we feel like we're writing an obituary for the PS Vita itself...This was make or break for Sony's portable, but such a shamefully underdeveloped shooter disgraces both the PS Vita and the Call Of Duty franchise.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A terrible backwards step for Transformers games, and a movie tie-in so cynical it tries to cut corners by ripping off its own predecessors.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Embarrassingly poor Japanese role-player that manages the impossible task of playing worse than it looks.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    You'd need a very thick pair of rose-tinted glasses to appreciate this frustrating retro 2D shooter.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Horribly unrefined historical romp whose few positive features are outweighed by dull, glitchy questing.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    In many ways just a bog standard movie tie-in, but the potential of the licence and the unscrupulousness of the microtransactions make it seem even worse than it is.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Utterly pointless and almost completely boring, this soulless scrapper has little to do with Fable and even less to do with having a good time.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Time Crisis with Transformers, but not any sense of pace, excitement or fun.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The anti-Chinatown Wars shows everything that could have gone wrong trying to make Grand Theft Auto on DS.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Spore hits an evolutionary dead end, as the "everything sim" becomes just another dull platformer.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    As miserable a waste of a good licence as we've ever seen and the most bug-ridden and unimaginative download of the year so far.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A Frankenstein’s monster of other people’s ideas, that if not for the sleazy script would be laughable in its desperation to include every fantasy cliché imaginable.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A hugely disappointing follow-up for To The Moon, whose trite and overly sentimental story feels long at just 60 minutes.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    For a brand new Nintendo franchise this is short not just on content, but also compelling gameplay and a sense of fun.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It might be okay on a mobile phone but you'll want to reverse the charges for this on Xbox Live Arcade.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Harry's film tie-in career ends with an inappropriately bland third person shooter, that is severely lacking in any kind of magic.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The least hand-crafted horror game ever, whose legion of design missteps and tepid scares make the worst of an already clichéd set-up.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The 3DS did not need two Ridge Racer style arcade racers for its launch, least of all one as badly made as this tiresome wannabe.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A shallow and unambitious tech demo, of the sort that console launches specialise in. The action works perfectly well but it’s instantly repetitive to the point of inanity.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    ModNation Racers was never top draw but this drags a previously competent franchise into the bowls of low budget cash-in hell.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It’s obviously been made on the cheap, but that’s no excuse for the legion of technical problems and the embarrassingly unsophisticated script of this obnoxious action game.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The evil twin to Zelda: Phantom Hourglass shows just how bad broken touch-screen controls can be.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The X-Men don't have a great history in video games but this is possibly their worst outing yet and offensively poor value for money even for fans.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Nintendo hobble their excellent old GameCube sports game with dreadful new motion controls.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A Fisher Price version of Earth Defense Force could have been fun, but this doesn't even try to offer any lasting entertainment, let alone value for money.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    One of the worst introductions to Pokémon - and gaming in general - a small child could suffer. The video games equivalent of corporal punishment.
