    • 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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not necessarily the best version of the game, but it's definitely the cheapest – and a still superb mix of role-playing, puzzle and strategy action.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Star Wars and pinball fans are equally well served here, with what are arguably better tables than the actual real machines.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best portable Castlevania for years and a more than equal follow-up to Lords Of Shadow – not to mention one of the best-looking games so far on the 3DS.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    BioWare really has saved the best till last with a downloadable expansion that not only justifies the expense but your faith in the Mass Effect franchise.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Kratos may not be gaming’s most charismatic protagonist but it turns out he has a surprising knack for multiplayer as well as single-player action, in one of the best-looking games on the PlayStation 3.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A satisfying end to an impressively varied series of downloads, with a strong restatement of everything that makes Battlefield so unique.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A welcome return for a significant but sadly overlooked part of Capcom’s fighting game heritage, and one of the best HD updates of a 2D game ever seen.
    • 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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Judgment doesn’t reinvent the wheel when it comes to either Gears or third person shooters in general, but with just a small change in perspective it does help to reframe it as something identifiably different. It is still the same game underneath, and we probably didn’t need four of them in six years, but arguably Judgment does more to justify itself than either of the two direct sequels.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best multiformat Wii U game so far, even if the improvements are mostly minor and the underlying game still lacks personality.
    • 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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Metroid and Castelvania face a new challenger, as the bizarre world of Mexican wrestling inspires one of the most entertaining action adventures of recent years.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As unique a vision as video gaming has ever seen and one able to use its many incompetencies – including the new ones – to entertain and surprise.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Beneath the saccharine sweet exterior beats the heart of a monster, one that wants to devour your every waking moment with its wonderfully addictive platform action.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best ever multiplayer stealth games and one of the most successful attempts yet at the perfect heist game.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s not perfect but The Walking Dead is one of the most important advances in interactive fiction for a generation, with some of the most memorable characters of any video game.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A welcome change of style for the puzzle series, and although its influences are obvious this offers impressive value and variety for an eShop download.
