    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Still easily the best sports management game around, and although most of this year's changes are fairly trivial they're all extremely welcome.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Superb mix of Tower Defense and action role-player that is one of the year's best and most addictive co-operative games.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Some of the best multiplayer action ever seen on the PC, although not without its issues - as well as a deeply disappointing single-player campaign.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A surprisingly fitting end to Nintendo's legacy on the DS, with one of the best ever uses of the touchscreen and the best Kirby game since Epic Yarn.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The funniest and best-looking entry in the series so far, but also the least innovative and accessible in terms of gameplay.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not only one of Cave's best 2D shooters but one of the definitive entries in the whole genre, with a deep weapons system and dazzling pyrotechnics.
    • 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.
