    • 70 Critic Score
    It doesn't even try to reinvent the fighting game genre or itself, but this is still the most enjoyable – and accessible - Tekken has been in years.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still one of the best and most original tactical action games around, although the compromises outweigh the small number of improvements on the PSP.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The king of puzzlers has rarely had more options but the lacklustre presentation and whiff of exploitation leaves a slightly sour taste.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The reason the PC version works better is simply down to the keyboard and mouse controls, which allow for much faster and responsive movement.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Donkey Kong Country is still no classic platformer, but this reboot comes surprisingly close to rivaling modern Super Marios.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Definitely the best Spider-Man game for several years, but it falls short of the character's full potential and the high watermark of Spider-Man 2.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not the silly novelty it might sound like but one of the most enjoyably addictive and cleverly original action stealth games on the PlayStation 3.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    On the PC there are too few new features to satisfy existing fans, but on the PlayStation 4 the joys of being an island dictator still feel enjoyably fresh.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An even more bare bones collection than on home consoles - even if it does include the best portable version of Snake Eater so far.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are some issues with game difficultly and length, but this is one of the most successful Kickstarters so far – and an excellent retro style role-player in its own right.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Possibly the most impressive use of 3D amongst all the launch games, and despite some obvious gripes a good solid football sim to boot.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun, funny, and wonderfully gory 2D shooter, but it’s not quite as tightly designed as OlliOlli and certainly lacks the same longevity.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As polished a product as Rockstar has ever produced but the action and storytelling are rigidly one note, and neither is sustained for long enough.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A worthy follow-up to Deadly Premonition, although whether it earns the same classic status will depend largely on the subsequent episodes.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Unoriginal and blandly presented, but an effective vindication of Move - with at least half of the games being the best ever adaptations of their sports.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the most beautiful video games ever made and if the gameplay isn't quite as angelic it's perfectly righteous in its own way.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A great Metroid game and a great Aliens tie-in, and only a few rough edges stop this from being a minor classic all of its own.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The action and storytelling fails to satisfy, but the dense atmosphere and uncompromisingly bleak setting almost makes up for the gameplay failings.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Jeff Minter rides again, but in a considerably more laidback and accessible action puzzler that's very well suited to the iPhone.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Like any good firework display this fun platformer retains its charm even after the novelty runs out.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's still plenty of the old Assassin's Creed magic in parts, but this proves an unnecessary sequel and one with few genuinely welcome new ideas.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Repetition and overfamiliarity are always the best ways to nullify fear, but until they set in this is one of the most effectively scary video games ever made.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The usual mix of the mundane, the inspired, and the not quite fully-formed, but at least two of the five maps are minor classics.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best version of the worst Disgaea might be for fans only but it's still a great strategy role-player.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An impressively ambitious attempt to open up game modding to everyone, although at the moment the action is curiously backwards.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A remake more than a reinvention, but one that retains all the simple gameplay and outrageous gore that made the original games fun.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fantasy enemies clearly work very well with Far Cry, but this abridged version of the main game really should be having more fun with its characters than this.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Lego does real-time strategy and makes it look easy - rather too easy as far as the difficultly goes.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best MOBAs on any console and a good introduction to the genre in general, thanks to its more console-friendly controls and fun premise.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent update of an almost forgotten British classic, and a promising start to the Gremlin Presents series.
