    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s a harder sell than The Walking Dead but this first episode is a promising start, that avoids fretting over details and instead creating characters you will genuinely care about.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Forget Worms and all the rest, when it comes to parabola-judging multiplayer mayhem this is the best.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Easily the best Transformers game ever, but also a tantalising glimpse of how to transform current action games into something more inventive and imaginative.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A largely unnecessary sequel to what is still the best beat 'em-up on the DS – or indeed any portable.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The Settlers goes back to basics, putting a friendly face on complex resource management.
    • 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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A relative low point in Zelda history but still a hugely addictive and superbly well designed adventure.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not a very good argument for why Nintendo shouldn’t make smartphone games, but an imaginative and enjoyable take on Candy Crush Saga and its ilk.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best boxing sim ever gets even better, with stunning graphics and immersive, if controversial, controls.
    • 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.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Only the limiting nature of the PSP holds back the most ambitious and fully-featured Metal Gear ever.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Probably the closest you'll ever get to another Project Gotham Racing, with a fantastic-looking open world filled with top class racing opportunities.
    • 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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    More accessible and better value than the PC original, and with the same beautiful 2D visuals – Trine 2 sets the Wii U's eShop off to an excellent start.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The modern and 8-bit worlds collide again as old school arcade gameplay is given a new twist.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not the best version of Mass Effect 3, but also not the worst – indeed it's only the lack of the other games and their DLC that makes this difficult to recommend.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An impressive port of the PS3 original that improves some elements, even if it leaves out multiplayer.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There’s little attempt at innovation in Starcraft II’s first expansion, but enough refinement and fine-tuning to please fans both new and old.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Minimalist gaming at its finest, with graphics and presentation out of the Stone Age but evocative sci-fi action that’s tense, tactical and instantly addictive.
    • 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
    Gaming’s ultimate eSport gets a well-considered makeover by the masters at Valve, although new ideas, and fixes for old problems, are currently thin on the ground.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The greyification of gaming continues, but this new age Super Metroid is more fun than it looks.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may have little in common with the earlier McRae games but this is still a varied and exciting racer.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The remake is no longer the technical marvel it once was, but Capcom has done their best to reissue it in a way that maintains all the splendour, scares, and laughs of the original.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Only a minor evolution of Rome II, and with many of the same bugbears, but the stunning visuals and deep strategy bring a fascinating period of history fully to life.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Beneath its cute exterior beats the heart of a demandingly difficult brainteaser which rewards invention and persistence, but has no time for trivial puzzles – or gamers.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Another indie classic makes the successful leap from PC to console, in this masterful mix of Minecraft and Metroid.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Great value download, with an excellent capture the flag game that it would be positively rude not to try.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Faithful almost to a fault to the classic original, but still a stunning achievement for the DS and a thoroughly engrossing adventure in its own right.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent remake that makes the game vastly more accessible for newcomers, while still providing plenty of new features, and updated visuals, for existing fans.
