    • 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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very worthwhile upgrade of the portable original, that stands up well in terms of visuals and easily exceeds Resident Evil 6 in terms of atmosphere and intrigue.
    • 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.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It still feels more like a remix than a wholly new game, but New Leaf combines stress free entertainment and inescapable addiction in a more beguiling way than ever.
    • 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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An impressively ambitious expansion that greatly improves on some of the original’s failings, offering new ways to play while still remaining accessible and fun.
    • 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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An inspired mix of roguelike and platformer that dares to be fair with its rewards and its penalties for death – although not necessary its random medical conditions.
    • 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.
    • 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.
