    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Poor pacing and the worst celebrity voiceovers of the year mar what could have been the definitive Lego game, but in the end is just another fun but shallow co-op game amongst many.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A clever and quietly innovative puzzlers, whose only flaw is too much of a good thing.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not all of the game’s bold ideas are entirely successful but in terms of the visuals, music, and storytelling ambition this is one of the most absorbing indie adventures of the year.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A cleverly orchestrated souvenir of Final Fantasy at its best, that also can't help but remind you of the series' most common failings.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It’s not short of spectacle but in terms of innovation and variety this is nowhere near as forward-thinking as Bungie would like to pretend.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite a highly emotional finale this is arguably the worst episode of the season, although the overall storytelling remains some of the strongest in gaming.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A great value aerial Mario Kart that flies rings round many other racers that cost ten times the price.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An extremely slow start to Minecraft’s first story adventure, but it’s a game made with a clear love for the original and is bound to please most younger fans.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A spirited attempt to reinvent Guitar Hero and the music game genre, but the freemium approach to additional content has its obvious drawbacks.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A distinguished iOS release that manages to replicate almost all the features of the home consoles originals, both good and bad.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Whether it's more or less value for money than usual is up for debate but in purely game terms this is the best MX Vs. ATV yet.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An admirably imaginative approach to downloadable content that has a better story than the main game, but not quite enough variety in action and missions.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Old school graphic adventure that doesn't pull its punches with either the puzzles or the gorgeous art.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The level of whimsy may seem artificially high but this is an inventive and fun puzzler - and a great opening salvo for Xbox Live Arcade in 2011.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable homage to old school Metal Gear Solid, but a lack of challenge and an overbearing story means it isn’t quite a stealth classic in its own right.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The worst FIFA game for over half a decade, and clearly inferior to PES 2016. And yet it’s still not a bad game in itself, with some welcome new features.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A useful expansion that unlike most doesn’t ignore the failings of the original, although even with the improvements Beyond Earth still isn’t as engrossing as the real Civilization.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still the same innovative-but-flawed puzzler as on the DS, but now far cheaper and with even more attractive visuals.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The mismatched marriage of Mario Kart and PGR results in a racer that's less than the sum of its parts.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The Darkness II is a good game, but whether you consider it a good sequel will depend entirely on what you liked best about the original. If it was the storytelling and exploration then you may find this disappointing, if it was the OTT violence and bizarre Darkness powers then this is still a hell of a lot of fun.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The cops ‘n’ robbers theme often does more harm than good to the Battlefield formula, but this peculiar spin-off has just enough tricks of is own to be worth a collar.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best remasters so far makes surviving the Russian apocalypse more horrifying than ever, although none of the changes address the games’ more fundamental issues.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An improvement on the earlier echochrome and another abstract but engaging puzzler for the PSP.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A trip down wrestling's memory lane that ends up being a lot more fun than any of the more serious sims of recent years.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Some of the best car chases in recent gaming memory and a stunning post-apocalyptic world, although when Max gets out of his car he becomes more mediocre than mad.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The gimmick is great, and playing as a villain works extremely well, but as a game this doesn’t play as fair or as fun as previous instalments.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    You won't miss Phoenix Wright at all in this winsome, if still unnecessarily frustrating, spin-off.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent hybrid of role-playing staples that although it lacks new ideas of its own is able to use existing ones in a variety of entertaining ways – except when it comes to the story.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's no Angry Birds - because it's not trying to be. Instead, it's a cheerful and attractive twist on an always-popular gameplay mechanic that's already a deserved hit with casual gaming fans. It's more Placid Bird Suffused With A Sense Of Innocent Child-Like Wonder.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Clever puzzles, immersive presentation, and an intriguing plot combine in one of the most ambitious and original smartphone games of the year.
