    • 93 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may be short on gameplay surprises, but it's long on visual shock and awe.
    • 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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The loss of London Life leaves a nasty taste in the mouth, but its absence doesn't affect the main game which is probably the best of the series so far.
    • 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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Only nostalgiaists will want to play it at length but this shames modern shooters with its ambition.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great tie-in and, much more importantly, a great game. Generous in terms of content and childish fun.
    • 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.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not only one of the best WiiWare games ever, but an inspired 2D action puzzler to put even LocoRoco and Rolando in the shade.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Indie gaming at its retro-loving best, with some of the most cunningly-designed and purposefully infuriating 2D gameplay of the year.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Despite a few pulled punches this is the best Call Of Duty has been in years, and the multiplayer in particular is the most innovative since Modern Warfare began.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The classic gets some well implemented new features that extend but don't overwhelm the original.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An evolution of last year's FIFA is enough for EA to win the battle of football games, but it may need to step up its game next year with PES improving.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Mercilessly difficult, and unusually complicated, but the best looking and most varied BIT. TRIP yet.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best looking fighting games ever and the most successful attempt yet to make an interactive anime, even if it is a little lacking in content and new ideas.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A wonderful throwback to ’80s style British gaming, that has much to teach modern titles in terms of player freedom and open world design.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent spin-off that uses the science fiction setting to focus and expand the gameplay in interesting new ways, and yet remains as accessible and thoughtful as ever.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A successful start to the first episodic Resident Evil, with some genuinely inventive co-op features and the most effective scares the series has seen in years.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The consistently surprising offspring of Harvest Moon and Pikmin will make a royalist out of anyone.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best gets that little bit better in what is a modest sequel, but a still stunning driving simulator.
    • 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.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are still a few rough edges to be driven over, but as mild as the improvements are this still makes Forza Horizon 2 one of the best racers of recent years.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It might be a pain to get hold of but this engrossing visual novel has more mystery and tension in its simple text screens than a hundred CGI cut scenes.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The video game equivalent of a concept album, and a hugely successful mix of visual, music and gameplay influences.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    PopCap Games' best game and probably the best ever Tower Defence – and it works just as well as you'd hope on the Xbox 360.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    More realistic than ever, but not necessarily a better game as a result of it - especially as the frontline features and options have seen little change.
    • 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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A surprisingly fitting end to Nintendo's legacy on the DS, with one of the best ever uses of the touchscreen and the best Kirby game since Epic Yarn.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Moving beyond a mere homage to Dungeon Master this is one of the best dungeon crawlers of recent years, even if the puzzle balance still isn’t quite right.
