    • 56 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A mediocre remake of a game that really doesn’t deserve to be remembered, although it’s still fascinating to see what passed for adult entertainment back in the ‘80s.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Nostalgia hounds will find plenty to excite them but viewed under the cold light of modern day Superfrog is not, and never really was, a very good platformer.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It was arguably never very good even back in the day, but playing it now The Chaos Engine’s basic action is hopelessly outclassed by any number of retro and contemporary titles.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Surviving zombies is fairly easy but the real enemy here is tedium and a shopping list of design mistakes that makes this one of the worst zombie games of the year.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The worst Mario & Sonic game yet and not just a waste of a crossover but a genuinely poor mini-game compilation, and one that makes both the Wii U and the GamePad look bad.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    On the surface It may look as cute as an ewok but the money-grabbing machine beneath is twisted and evil – not to mention incredibly boring.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A poor quality video game by any measure, but what this joyless throwback is doing being a key launch title for the PlayStation 4 Sony only knows.
    • 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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It’d be nice to say that at least it’s something different but Contrast is far more mundane and derivative than it first appears. It’s also a near farce on a technical level.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It seems very unfair to suddenly thrust such a dated game back into the limelight, but it ready would’ve been better if Putty Squad had stayed in retirement.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Sickeningly offensive use of not just microtransactions but every underhand trick in the marketing handbook, which is a shame as the underlying game isn’t bad.
    • 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.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It’s great to see the creators of Disgaea trying something new but this charmless, needlessly confusing, action role-player is a failure on almost every level.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It looks like Metal Slug but it certainly doesn’t play like it, which would be fine if only the strategy gameplay had any real depth – or the microtransactions were less obnoxious.
    • 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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The premise of a ghostly investigator attempting to save himself and his town from demonic forces shouldn’t be this tedious. Unfortunately though making the fantastical seem mundane is one of the game’s few real achievements.
    • 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.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    There’s a kernel of an interesting idea here but it’s so grossly underdeveloped that not even the involvement of Neil Gaiman, and a respected developer, can save it.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The worst game Platinum has ever made, and thanks to its sheer incompetence and banality almost the Bizarro World opposite of Bayonetta.
    • 67 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.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The Destroy All Humans! franchise goes out with a whimper not a bang in this disgracefully poor sequel.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Amateurish mix of Tomb Raider and Unreal Tournament 2004 that should have stayed as a fan-made mod.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Pitifully inept real-time strategy that makes almost every design and technology mistake possible.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Sonic speeds ever further away from his roots and into one of his most ineptly-designed games so far.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The same old Dynasty Warriors formula is reused and abused yet again, and not even giant robots can save it.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The Vietnam War has never seemed so horrific in this shockingly poor first person shooter.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Don't let the subtitle fool you - not even semi-naked girls and/or zombies can save this dire action game.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The Guinness Book of Records has but one contender for the least value-for-money video game ever made.
