    • 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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the most daring marriages of narrative and action game ever seen, and yet still the end result never fully satisfies as either a game or story.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent remake of a game that represents one of the logical extremes of Japanese role-players, and yet remains surprisingly endearing despite its flaws.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It still seems bizarre there’s no console version but if you must play a PlayStation 2 era GTA game on a touchscreen then this is a good as you can ever imagining it working.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A mostly successful experiment at turning one of the world’s biggest studios into an indie developer, with the end result being a charming love letter to the best of Japanese role-playing.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A vast improvement on the first game, but still only a partial vindication for motion controls.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite playing the nostalgia card it’s newer players that will get the most from this streamlined sequel, although even they will be disappointed by the workmanlike script.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best multiplayer experiences of the year, but the cost of entry and the lack of content make it a harder sell then it should be.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Adding a true open world to the Monster Hunter formula works just as well as you’d expect, even if this sequel is still a long way from perfecting the concept.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Its attempted revolution of turn-based tactics isn't quite as practical as it first seems but this is still an impressively fun, and funny, strategy game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A superior Mario Kart clone and certainly the best Sega has ever produced, especially in terms of the teary-eyed nostalgia inspired by its endless retro cameos.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An improvement on the first game but despite the joyful carnage this is still a pretty shallow sandbox.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pacing problems and a lack of variety take their toll, but in its best most moments this is the most successful big budget survival horror in a decade.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Probably the best Harvest Moon game ever with a successfully odd mix of farming and dungeon crawling.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another great movie tie-in from the creators of Toy Story 3 and one of the best Mario Kart clones for years.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still gaming’s most realistic crime drama, as well as being the natural heir to both Shenmue and Streets Of Rage – even if this entry shows little real innovation.
