    • 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.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The worldless storytelling is some of the most compelling of the year and the purposefully frustrating control system an outrageously daring experiment.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    In many ways the best game on the Wii U so far, at least in terms of using the GamePad for something other consoles would find very hard to replicate.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The concept may sound absurd but the experience of playing Papers, Please shines a light not on the game’s hapless victims but on the player’s own sense of decency.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Viewed on its own merits it’s a highly entertaining and feature-packed video game, and that’s all that really matters.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An incredible work of imagination and one of the best-looking games of the generation. The gameplay can’t quite match the magic of the presentation, but it’s not far behind.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A bad Zelda is still a good game by any other standard but this does frustrating little to improve its standing, beyond making the graphics look even more stunning.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Pro Evo has been all generation and, for players looking for a more in-depth and grounded game of football, a genuine alternative to FIFA.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It lacks commitment in some areas but there are enough new features and promising new ideas to keep fans busy for another 12 months, even if this is clearly a transitionary sequel.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Still one of the best survival horror games of the generation and one whose thick atmosphere and surreal sojourns work surprisingly well on the PS Vita.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Formula 1 racer by default, although beyond the new retro additions very little has changed in this year’s game.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Business as usual with a mediocre single-player campaign and one of the best multiplayer experiences in all gaming – especially on the inarguably superior PC version.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There is innovation here and even if it’s not always in exactly the areas you’d wish it’s enough to ensure that Call Of Duty’s status as the world’s favourite FPS is still largely deserved.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not to mix comic book metaphors but Lego Marvel’s kryptonite is technical rather than conceptual, but this is still an enormously entertaining co-op adventure.
    • 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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A charming vindication of the PS Vita, that uses the console’s many abilities to the fullest – even if that does mean you’re left wanting more.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Defender clone for years and arguably the best next gen launch title on any console, although that says far more about its rivals than it does Resogun itself.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Some useful improvements to the already solid current gen versions, although the loss of some game modes means it’s not the ultimate edition it could’ve been.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A brave game indeed as it attempts to marry the best of old school Japanese role-players with new and modern ideas… and generally succeeds.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may be the same game yet again but gorgeous visuals and cunning puzzles make Trine 2 a great showcase for the PlayStation 4 and its online store.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are minor improvements here but the next gen versions of Lego Marvel still rely on charm and fan service more than technical finesse.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It can be a little inconsistent in terms of both actions and puzzles but late entry or not this is one of the funniest and best-presented adventures of the year.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Joe Danger yet, with some fun new gimmick and some of the best touchscreen controls ever seen in an action game.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A superb multiplayer game with some of the best virtual sword-fighting ever seen, giving you the best reason to crowd round a PC since a kitten did something cute on YouTube.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A surprise new champion for the PS Vita and a cleverly designed mix of skateboarding and 2D platforming that will appeal to everyone.
    • 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.
