    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may pay homage to the best of 8-bit gameplay but this is cleverly originally and instantly addictive.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    No launch game benefits more from the 3DS's stereoscopic 3D than this almost illicitly addictive return to Ridge City.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Another inspired mix of skateboarding and 2D platforming that manages to combine a surprising level of realism with some wonderfully impossible level design.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's Total War in name only but even so this is one of the most well-designed strategy games on smartphones - and certainly one of the most attractive.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s almost entirely backwards-looking, and the characterisation is disappointingly dry, but for fans of Baldur’s Gate and its era this will have you partying like it’s 1998.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Another enjoyable addition to the Fallblox family of puzzle games, with a fun new gimmick and a generally fair and above board use of DLC.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of Cave's finest moments loses surprisingly little in its move to the iPhone, with excellent controls and plenty of extras.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A textbook example of worthwhile downloadable content, with action that's just as good as the main game but different enough that it feels like a unique experience.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The sheer age of the games are beginning to count against them but Ace Attorney still remains exhibit A in how to make story-based games fun and engaging.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A solid second episode that meanders a little at first but has some of the most complex and thought-provoking moral decisions in any video game to date.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Being Boney represents a more linear, but more accessible, experience for would-be European dictators.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Another perfectly crafted adventure that puts to shame most other retail games at five times its price.
    • 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.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The classic 1995 role-player is finally released in Europe and it's almost sad how fresh it still feels.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    New modes such as NBA's Greatest are a welcome inclusion and add longevity to the game. Basketball fans will also be excited by the improvements to Franchise mode, and the overall first class presentation.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Konami's reinvention of the footy sim still impresses a year later, even if this is largely the same game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It doesn't even try to reinvent the Counter-Strike formula, but this is easily the best version for consoles and a refreshing retro alternative to the modern military shooter.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Probably the best-looking 2D shooter ever made and an excellent genre introduction for the uninitiated. Not to mention a great advertisement for East/West collaborations.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may not have the depth of Street Fighter IV, but this is just as accessible and fun as its big brother.
    • 87 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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best action puzzlers for several years, made all the better by some surprisingly distinctive storytelling and visuals.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Far more interested in fixing the flaws of the original than most sequels, this is probably the best, or at least most accurate, use of Kinect so far.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Another meaty chunk of downloadable content for Borderlands 2, with a great mix of play styles and some wonderfully OTT quests and characters.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may well end up being Nintendo's last game on the Wii, but it's an impressively subversive swansong that is neither as crude - nor as easy - as it looks.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Something close to a minimal effort, but with FIFA 10 powering the action it's still hard to resist.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not only one of the 3DS's best launch games but also one of the most accessible and entertaining turn-based strategies of recent years.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An incredible work of imagination and one of the best-looking games of the generation. The gameplay can’t quite match the magic of the presentation, but it’s not far behind.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
