    But despite all that it gets right we do wish that Guild Wars 2 had been bolder with the art style and the setting of its game world. Or that it had pushed its combat system even further and created something genuinely unique. Although the fact that it has no subscription fee is an unqualified positive that needs to be adopted as standard before free-to-play ruins everything.

    It wasn't a very good game eight years ago and slightly improved graphics certainly don't improve its standing now, but if nothing else this proves the world needs a Doom 4.
    • 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.

    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.

    The technical achievements don't come without a cost, and the game world still lacks personality, but this is still a first person shooter of impressive talents.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best story driven games of the year, and one of the prettiest, although you do sometimes wonder if it’s focusing on the most interesting aspect of its plot.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Overall Black Ops II is the most ambitious and innovative Call Of Duty for years, but it's also the most inconsistent. But that may well be the short term price for trying to do things differently.

    In many ways Absolution is as effective a franchise reboot as we've ever seen, retaining almost everything that was good about the originals and while making the game more accessible for new players. It also has most of the same problems, or at least swaps them out for new ones, but maybe that at least will convince sceptics that IO hasn't sold out.

    • 80 Critic Score
    The best PixelJunk game yet and an inspired mix of Thrust style exploration and elemental puzzles.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An elegantly designed mix of puzzles and platforming that may well be the best Lost Vikings clone yet.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A clever demonstration of all the Wii U's features and, more importantly, a mini-game collection that can keep any gamer – from casual to hardcore – equally entertained.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best driving sims of the new generation, and although it still lacks content in some areas the console versions are just as good as the PC.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A bad Zelda is still a good game by any other standard but this does frustrating little to improve its standing, beyond making the graphics look even more stunning.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Another inspired mix of Metroidvania and traditional puzzler, and certainly one of the best games on the 3DS's eShop.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great cinematic action adventure, with one of gaming’s great lead performances, although its Tomb Raider DNA seems fragmented and even degenerative in parts.
    • 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.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A much better map than the last two and amongst the best of the season, while still leaving you wanting even more from Hitman’s episodic exploits.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's better value than the Virtual Console, but it's still a lazy effort.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Frustrating and confusing almost by design, Antichamber is nevertheless one of the most intelligent and imaginative puzzle games for years.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A vast improvement on the flawed original, with much more variety and a much greater sense of fun.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A triumphant back-to-basics return to WWII, for the original vehicle-based multiplayer shooter.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It can never have the impact of the first game but this is still a worthy, incremental improvement.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Someone finally finds something interesting to do with Pong, with this excellent retro homage.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s not aged as well as some of CAVE’s other games, but this is still a fun and imaginative 2D shooter that’s perfect for new players.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best really has been saved for last – assuming you find Tiny Tina funny – but even if you don’t this fantasy-themed romp is a great way to say goodbye to Borderlands 2.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A step down from the masterful Bowser’s Inside Story, but still a wonderfully imaginative and dryly funny mix of platformer and traditional RPG.
    • 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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great mix of action, strategy, and endearing silliness – and also a great reminder that there are some games only download services like Xbox Live Arcade can provide.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    More than just a standalone expansion, this is another genre-blurring tour de force by Relic.
