    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Exactly what the 3DS needed to reenergise its fortunes and restate its purpose, and even if it's not as good as Galaxy it's still the best portable Mario since the Game Boy.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Halo's 10th anniversary certainly deserves celebrating but a HD remake only serves to underline how little the series has moved forward over the years.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Gloriously insane and surprisingly good value, it doesn't pretend to be the deepest fighter around but in the short term at least this is one of the most entertaining.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A superbly crafted comeback for one of platform gaming's most overlooked stars, and one of the best-looking 2D games ever made.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The loss of London Life leaves a nasty taste in the mouth, but its absence doesn't affect the main game which is probably the best of the series so far.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Considerably more depth and variety than the original, and with even more stunning visuals - this is as good as smartphone and tablet gaming gets.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Going green has never been so entertaining, with the only game this Christmas where brain not brawn will save the world.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A loving update of what is still a genuinely fun and innovative genre mash-up, as well as a fascinating glimpse at the glory days of British gaming.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The same great Lost Vikings-inspired action platforming as the first game, but now with some of the most amazing 2D graphics ever seen.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An inspired and genuinely original puzzle game that offers plenty of value for money and one of the best reason so far to get your 3DS online.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A cheerier, more versatile alternative to Trials HD, whose Special Edition manages to make trial-and-error and constant repetition even more fun.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best story-based games of 2011 and proof that big budgets and famous voiceovers are no match for clever design and a good script.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Almost the perfect portable download, with a great gimmick exploited with skilful level design and gorgeous visuals and 3D effects.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Excellent platform/shooter hybrid, whose engrossing narrative and well-realised game world deserves to be appreciated by a much wider audience.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Resident Evil since number 4 and that's despite a number of compromises in the story mode, but very much helped by the superb graphics and online mode.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Prettier, more accessible, and more varied than ever. This is one of the best new 3D fighters of recent years, even with a horribly disappointing story mode.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A typically awful boxed set for such an influential series, but the games themselves work well in HD and this is still a useful primer for the series.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The only other possible complaint is the complete lack of any multiplayer, but as distracting a diversion as these options are in the home console games gunfights and online multiplayer are both way down the list of reasons of why we play an Uncharted game. Especially as Golden Abyss' story campaign lasts well over 10 hours.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent port of Capcom's gloriously insane crossover fighter. It may not have the depth of Street Fighter but in the short term at least it's just as entertaining.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are still some pacing issues, but this is the best version of Lumines yet and an artful mix of music, graphics, and puzzle gameplay.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The premier MMA title that will appeal to all fight fans, whether you like the sport or not.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent conversion of the home console original, that actually seems more at home on the PS Vita than it did its original formats.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Easily Mistwalker's best game so far and another sure sign that, with a bold enough creator, Japanese role-players can be just as exciting and innovative as their Western counterparts.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The most enjoyable MotorStorm game by far and arguably the best game on the PS Vita - or at the very least the best value for money.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    SSX
    Masterful reboot of the old snowboarding racer, with just the right mix of retro appeal, modern presentation, and brand new ideas.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best combat flight sim ever on a console, with a huge range of aircraft and locations - as well as difficultly settings to suit every kind of gamer.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A justifiably indulgent celebration of some of indie gaming's greatest triumphs, and one that deserves to be experienced by every Wii owner - and beyond.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's not quite as fully-featured as its Wii equivalent but this is still an excellent compilation of some of the best indie games of this generation.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An impressively courageous reboot that channels the hard-edged heart of the series while discarding its more antagonistic baggage.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Far more than meets the eye, the triumph here isn't the successful return of Kid Icarus but Nintendo's most involved and nuanced shooter of recent years.
