    Despite its many and obvious influences this is an impressively unique vision that offers excellent value for money and one of the best surprises on the 3DS’s eShop.

    It's a mystery why Mitchell has allowed Pang to remain dormant for so long given this consistently clever, if slightly cheap looking, revival.
    • 78 Metascore

    You'd never believe this was actually a PS3 game, but apart from the graphics this is the best Disgaea yet.

    Tribes: Ascend is not just an excellent first person shooter in its own right but it's a well-orchestrated revival of a franchise that has never got the recognition it deserves. Whether it'll be more lucky this time we couldn't say but just give this a go and you won't have lost anything, literally.

    The details may have changed but this is still fundamentally the same game as the 1996 original. But that's kind of the point. Diablo isn't interested in innovation or subtlety; it's interested in empowerment and cheap thrills. It knows that clicking on monsters to bash their brains in with an axe is fun and its only concern is ensuring it stays that way no matter how, and with whom, you play it.

    Despite all that could have gone wrong this is one of the best remakes this generation, with a triumphant return for old school split screen multiplayer.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    By ironing out the last few wrinkles from the original console versions, and adding in a few extra features, Diablo finally feels at home with a gamepad.

    Even if it’s only been a year, time has not been kind to Dark Souls’ sequel and this remaster does little to help the situation – even if it ‘s a hugely engrossing game in its own right.

    So the question is: how good is the new map pack? And without hesitation the answer is: very good indeed.
    • 85 Metascore

    A no expense spared celebration of the most enduring shooter series of all time, with everything a Halo fan could wish for and more than enough to entertain everyone else.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Lego game so far and one that defies both its simplicity and familiarity for an almost effortlessly entertaining co-op experience.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's not a real overhaul for the series, but it is the best version so far - and so by extension one of the best portable video games ever made.

    • 80 Critic Score
    A great sequel to what is still probably the best Tower Defense game around, and a shining example of how to do free-to-play properly.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A welcome return to MonkeyIsland and a promising first episode to a new season of graphic adventuring.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Low on innovation but high on spectacle, as the cumulation of the last several years of Need For Speed games the first entry on the next gen is already one of the best.
    • 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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The changes to the tactics system are likely to prove controversial but this is undeniably the most accessible and realistic Football Manager ever made.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The whole package absolutely shames most other downloadable expansions (including the earlier Red Dead ones) and as silly and shallow as it all is it's just as unmissable as the main game itself.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It feels more like a restatement of the original game than a full-blown sequel, but while its effect on the Wii U’s fortunes may be limited the fact remains there’s nothing quite like Pikmin.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Neither nerdish simulator nor abstract arcade game, Shift 2 proves that compromises don't have to be boring - as long as they have autolog.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A hugely effective interactive story that shows that video games don’t need big budgets or extreme violence to tell an emotional tale.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There’s a lot of downtime at the start, but another shock ending does little to dilute what is the best piece of interactive storytelling so far this year.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's not really Ridge Racer, but whether you consider it a reboot or a spin-off this is the best arcade racer since Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Only a minor improvement on the last game, but still a hugely accomplished space strategy game – with an almost infinite range of customisation options.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fantastic labour of love that genuinely manages to improve on the ground-breaking original – if only by missing out some of the worst parts.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A loving and genuinely funny homage to old school role-playing-games and the people that play them.
    • 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.
    • 85 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.
