    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    More realistic than ever, but not necessarily a better game as a result of it - especially as the frontline features and options have seen little change.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Even though it's let down by longevity and a lack of ancillary options this still plays like a classic and is one of the best new shooters of its generation.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are some welcome advances here over Fallout 3 but they risk being drowned out by the cripplingly poor technology that still powers the game.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Indie gaming at its retro-loving best, with some of the most cunningly-designed and purposefully infuriating 2D gameplay of the year.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The plot may have gone off the deep end but thankfully the puzzles remain perfectly logical in what is Layton's biggest and arguably best adventure yet.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best new music title for years and a significant improvement on the first game, with almost every complaint from the original addressed.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The whole package absolutely shames most other downloadable expansions (including the earlier Red Dead ones) and as silly and shallow as it all is it's just as unmissable as the main game itself.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Fans are unlikely to be too disappointed, and the developer's automotive obsession is always evident, but this is definitely a refinement not a revolution.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The name and the screenshots have probably put most people off already but this is a classic example of Cave's mastery of the 2D shooter.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Its goals and improvements may be more modest than the last game but this is still an enjoyable return trip to Italy - especially in the company of friends.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Despite all that could have gone wrong this is one of the best remakes this generation, with a triumphant return for old school split screen multiplayer.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Consistently underrated at the time this masterful mix of influences makes hardly a single mistake in all three games - and definitely deserves a fourth.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may be a relatively small improvement but this is definitely the best of the series yet, and as a result one of the DS's best puzzle games.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Helicopter sims may be a niche interest but after IL-2 Sturmovik this is the best flight simulation available on current consoles.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best horror game of this generation and one of the few courageous enough to try new ideas and make the player a victim, not a saviour.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not one of the standout entries for the series, with just a few useful additions that never go quite far enough. Not that it tempers the game's addictive powers.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As unique a vision as video gaming has ever seen and one able to use even its many incompetencies to entertain and surprise.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A useful expansion that puts an appreciably different spin on the original gameplay, to the point where many are likely to prefer this tour of duty.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of Steam's best kept secrets and a cracking indie title that both pokes fun at and celebrates the charming absurdity of role-playing games.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not only one of the best WiiWare games ever, but an inspired 2D action puzzler to put even LocoRoco and Rolando in the shade.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It might be a pain to get hold of but this engrossing visual novel has more mystery and tension in its simple text screens than a hundred CGI cut scenes.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Rather than iron out the faults of the original this new platformer construction kit tries to hide them under a wave of useful but inessential extras.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An improvement on the original but only in the details, not as a result of any big new ideas. Genre-starved survival horror fans should be well satisfied though.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are a few niggling technical issues but this still easily laps any other serious racing game on the iPhone - or any other portable format.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The iPhone's best game emerges from the shadow of LocoRoco as one of the best portable puzzlers ever.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    So the question is: how good is the new map pack? And without hesitation the answer is: very good indeed.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An inspired reworking of The Sentinel, introducing a new generation to one of the most tense and atmospheric action puzzlers ever made.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Double Fine's best game since Psychonauts is unique in both setting and gameplay, with an enchanting mix of absurdist logic and striking presentation.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may not be the deepest of fighters but it is one of the most entertaining and imaginative, not to mention bug-eyed crazy.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The overwrought storytelling is not the sort of taste many will want to acquire, but that doesn't stop this being one of the best tactical role-players ever.
