    Neither rip-off nor bargain, but Treyarch and Activision are clearly playing things safe - despite the excesses of Call Of The Dead.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Viewing this simply as a re-release it's still a hugely enjoyable game, overshadowed only by its own sequel - with its longer, more complex missions, no time limit and multiplayer modes. Since it's getting the New Play Control treatment too it makes this a little harder to recommend... but not much.

    • 70 Critic Score
    It's Tekken with better graphics, again. And yet it's still hard to dislike a fighter this good.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not nearly as uninspiring or derivative as it first appears, but instead one of the most engrossing and thoughtful puzzlers of the year.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the oldest games to be revamped for the PS Vita's launch, but still an impressive, if frustratingly difficult, third person actioner.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Dungeon Master is finally reborn, as a role-playing game that mixes the best conventions of old and new in a refreshingly different kind of first person adventure.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An unsatisfying facsimile of Resident Evil 4 with none of the style or excitement, just more bugbears.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A well-crafted homage to Chrono Trigger, which isn’t scared to add its own ideas – ensuring this is far more than just a nostalgic novelty.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An old school computer role-playing game is a rare sight on consoles, but this unofficial predecessor to Fallout is more than just a nostalgia-fuelled curio.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Many will argue as to whether it’s a ‘real’ game or not, but Proteus’ ability to stimulate your imagination and your senses makes it a more satisfyingly interactive experience than many.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Clever, funny, and beautiful to look at, but this is a game of two halves and the second one is such a peculiar tonal shift in terms of gameplay that even the story suffers as a result.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best Tower Defence games of the year, with fast-paced action and deep, addictive strategy.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Top Spin 4 wins this year's tennis trophy but this more arcade style alternative is still a valid alternative with some great gimmicks.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not necessarily an essential experience, but despite the repetitive elements the game’s co-op thrills and winning humour ensure entertainment for both new fans and old.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Simpler, shallower but more accessible, this will divide fans but should engage the less committed.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Unsophisticated and sloppily made but there’s a heart of gold beneath the game’s erratic exterior, as it successfully skewers some of gaming’s more pompous franchises.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    On consoles it's merely good, but with a full complement of 64 players this is the best, and biggest, that Battlefield has ever been.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still an object lesson in how to make a kids' game, even with added complexity and some confusing puzzles.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It may not be a great game but even card-carrying metal haters will get drawn into this gutsy homage.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The concept is clearly not going to appeal to anyone with an age in double digits but the game makes much better and more varied use of Kinect than almost any other title so far released.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Possibly the best looking game of all time, mixed with not quite there combat but a great multiplayer.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It’s a little too zealous in its old school approach, but this is still a great computer role-playing game and a welcome, if unofficial, part of the Fallout family.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Clever, funny, and thought-provoking, but even without the weight of expectations this is a surprisingly insubstantial and ephemeral experience.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Probably the best Kirby game ever and one of the most visually arresting video games of the year (if it had actually been released in Europe that is).
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A perfectly competent platformer, perhaps Yoshi’s best since Super Mario World 2, but one that is far less unique than its visuals suggest.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mice seem to have got at the game modes and vehicle selection but despite the paucity of options this is still one of the most original and fun racers on any format.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A far less ambitious sequel than the last two years and most of the headline changes are negative, especially changing your manager into a role-playing character.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A noble effort to recreate one of the PS Vita’s best games on a home console, but the end result never feels quite as elegant or organic as the original.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Less a prequel and more a rerun, but this remains one of the most fully-featured and best presented Japanese role-players on the App Store.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's nostalgia first and game second but you'd have to really hate Ghostbusters to not enjoy this tie-in.
