    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Downloadable content done right, with excellent value for money and a high standard of new tracks that seem even more consistent than the main game.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Professor Layton game so far and an excellent update of the original template, which makes full use of the 3DS's extra abilities.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The mechanics are the same as always but this makes a genuine effort to address the flaws of the previous titles and make the best use of Kinect so far.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A far better game than it will probably be given credit for, and a good sequel that tries to add depth to the gameplay and even more variety to the characters.
    • 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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A successful blend of Need For Speed and Burnout that lacks a little in personality, but certainly not in terms of content or online action.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As familiar as the system may seem there's no denying its addictive qualities, or the increased freedom it gives you to customise the play styles. But there is an unavoidable price to be paid in terms of Halo 4's sense of individuality.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An odd couple crossover that is not only a loving homage to Star Wars but, more importantly, the best Angry Birds game so far.
    • 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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not quite a killer app but certainly the best New Super Mario Bros. game so far, and an occasionally inspired 2D platformer in its own right.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent follow-up to 999, with a thought-provoking plot, compelling characters, and some of the hardest choices this side of The Walking Dead.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    By far the best Skyrim expansion so far, and although the dragon-riding is disappointing, having a whole new world (or at least island) to explore is almost as good.
    • 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.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An extremely successful attempt to reproduce Dota style action strategy on consoles, with a game that's considerably more accessible than its inspirations.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    More a re-release than an enhancement, but still a fascinating reminder of how engaging a good role-player can be even without modern graphics.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the most interesting things to happen to both massively multiplayer online games and shooters in years, and already a hugely enjoyable game in its own right.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As fascinatingly addictive as its premise is perversely mundane, but whatever the setting this is one of the best new puzzle games of the year.
    • 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
    Not much of a sequel but no matter how small the refinement this is still one of the best portable strategy games currently available.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the most acclaimed games of the '80s gets the modern makeover it deserves, with an experience that still feels as daringly ambitious now as it ever did.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An almost entirely successful reboot that still offers deep and flexible combat but in a more accessible and approachable form – and really, the new Dante's not that bad.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A near perfect segue from console to iPhone, and a game that understands the pros and cons of touchscreen controls a lot better than most.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best Japanese role-players of the generation and a gloriously beautiful game by any standard, both visually and emotionally.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fascinating experiment in alternative storytelling, filled with bold new ideas and some stunning visuals and music.
