    • 50 Critic Score
    Not the bold new reinvention that Assassin’s Creed needed but instead a rushed, patently unfinished mess whose improvements are minor and failings more obvious than ever.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Sega's legacy deserves a better celebration than this competent but unremarkable Mario Kart clone.
    • 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
    Although this fixes many of the problems with the original it then undoes all the things it got right, in one of the most inexcusably brief games ever.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There's disappointingly little to get your teeth into in this only briefly entertaining consumable.
    • 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.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    After a solid few years the Dragon Ball games are regressing, particularly in this flawed fighter.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The exact opposite of what most fans of the TV show would probably want from A Game Of Thrones tie-in, but there are some interesting strategic ideas here nonetheless.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There are flashes of brilliance, but this graphic adventure lacks some very elementary features.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    BioShock needs a new setting, storyline and gameplay. Instead it gets a story-less set of challenge rooms.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If the Burnout name is to remain alive it'll need something with a bit more fire in its belly than this mediocre destruction derby.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A not very dynamic comeback for Sony's other platforming duo in this repetitive and flawed adventure.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Impressively unique in terms of both visuals and gameplay but all the most interesting ideas seem to wash away disappointingly quickly.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Gameloft's cloners have excelled themselves in replicating all the basics of Batman: Arkham City on a smartphone - albeit only at shallow, surface level.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Relatively generous in size and scope, but being Second Son in miniature only helps to highlight what a hollow spectacle the game is.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Not an encouraging start for the first Harvest Moon on the 3DS, with a game that struggles to justify not only its own existence but that of the franchise as a whole.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Strangely self-defeating downloadable expansion that strips out everything that made the original fun.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Not a very good Batman game and certainly not a very interesting take on the Metroid formula, this portable dud squanders its potential on boring exploration and frustrating combat.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    MegaTen's experiment in action role-playing continues, but it remains a flawed and repetitive ride.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An unexpectedly daring attempt to reinvent the series but one mired in technical and design flaws.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A masterpiece of mediocrity and a crowning achievement in unambitiousness. The Devil’s Cartel has sold its soul, not to Beelzebub but to boardroom suits and focus groups.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A flawed mix of shooter and Tower Defense, but a far great failure as an anniversary celebration – since it seems certain to decrease the chances of there ever being another.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A very slight improvement on the original but this is still a deeply flawed and unlikeable role-player.
    • 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.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The combat has it’s moments but it has very little to do with Final Fantasy, although the awful storytelling is all too familiar from the rest of the Final Fantasy XIII series.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It sounds, and to a degree looks, like the movies but this run of the mill graphic adventure lacks the soul and excitement of the film franchise.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Yet another inessential and senseless expansion that ignores all the best elements of the original.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Another overly simplistic WiiWare puzzler, that benefits hardly at all from being a video game.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Another perfectly crafted adventure that puts to shame most other retail games at five times its price.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The official World Rally Championship game is looking tired on just its second outing, with very few improvements to the first game and far too many flaws.
