    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It looks and sounds as amazing as it ever did, but even if the control issues are a little more obvious now this is still a fantastically energetic and imaginative arcade game.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It won’t convert many new fans to either series but this is a successful mix of the best of both (minus the map-making) and whose new ideas deserve a future of their own.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Whatever you think of the original games this is one of the best HD remakes ever, and a considerable improvement on the already excellent PlayStation 3 and Vita versions.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good start to free-to-play games on the PlayStation 4, with a fun co-op shooter that doesn’t feel like it’s solely out to gouge its player’s wallets.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Its heroine may be the only thing that's not rough around the edges, but this is another fascinating mess by Suda51 and a great arcade style actioner.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still a minor royal in the fighting game pantheon, but a hardworking one that beats Marvel Vs. Capcom in terms of depth - if not accessibility and brand recognition.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Proof that Japanese role-players can evolve without having to losing their own unique identity, although Xillia stops just short of being a full-on revolution.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not the best entry in the series, but it does have some of the best puzzles. As well as a bombastic, if slightly confused, story that will leave both new and old fans wanting more.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A colossal achievement in puzzle gaming, with a very cleverly conceived setting and story, but the lack of variety and reward becomes stifling.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    All the changes and additions are for the best, and a great step forward for Destiny in general, but they come at a price – both literally and figuratively.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A very brave attempt to use video games to inspire empathy and share grief over one of the most sensitive subjects imaginable.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It has a lot wider appeal than you'd think, but it'll take a sequel for this to become truly heroic.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The combination still makes little sense but if Lego Freddy Mercury doesn't make you smile nothing will.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the most pointless sequels ever put to cartridge, and although the core Pokémon gameplay still shines through this is easily the worst version so far.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best bread simulator ever made, and despite the rampant silliness there’s some inspired gameplay mechanics and level design baked in.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a dazzling technical feat, the only problem is the actual game bits aren't all that much fun.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you've never played a Pokémon game this is an excellent place to jump aboard, and you can add at least one extra point to the score as a result. But for anyone else this is an easy to ignore stopgap.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It’s not original, and it’s often unfocused, but Darksiders II remains one of the better Zelda clones – even if this slipshod remaster does it few favours.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The mixture of old school, new school, and Metroidvania works surprisingly well – even if Strider’s long-awaited reboot still feels slightly too safe.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's still not a full reinvention of the Lego template but it is one of the most enjoyable uses of it so far, with an open world Gotham and a cast of characters to rival Arkham City.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The worlds of hairdressing and vegetable fancying combine in the best, and only, topiary simulator.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best real-time strategies for some time, although it’s a shame that despite a few new ideas it’s not really interested in pushing the genre forward.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It might be allergic to innovation but there's no denying the enthusiasm and attention to detail that's been lavished on this defiantly traditionalist role-player.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly successful mobile spin-off that uses the key elements of Hitman to good effect but remains perfectly playable to those new to the franchise.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A slightly disappointing sequel, that sacrifices too much in pursuit of the almighty dollar, but this is still a great all-round racer with something to please almost every kind of petrolhead.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The real test for Mercenary is whether the game would stand out if it was released on a home console, but the answer to that is probably not. The nods to GoldenEye offer some deviance from the norm but overall Mercenary does too little to distinguish itself from the competition. That there is no competition on the PS Vita gives it something of a free pass, but it still seems more like a proof of concept than a standalone game.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not as compelling as its predecessor, but as a four-player alternative to the Lego games this an enjoyable enough attempt at a Tomb Raider lite.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Family friendly survival horror with a quietly ambitious, and largely successful, attempt to get the most out of Kinect.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Jeff Minter returns with one of his most surreal retro tributes so far, but if you can keep your sanity it's also one of his best.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The granddaddy of online first person shooters returns and although you could quibble over the price the classic gameplay is as solid as ever.
