    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The highest carat of Sega's golden oldies returns (again) to prove that the blue skies are still the best.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Minimalist gaming at its finest, with graphics and presentation out of the Stone Age but evocative sci-fi action that's tense, tactical and instantly addictive.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The PSP's most cheerful game returns with an interesting, if very difficult, new take on the original.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A significant improvement on the last generation of Pro Evo games, and for the first time in years PES is more entertaining than the new FIFA.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Only masochists will appreciate all of the new features, but they do help to round out what was always an unfairly pilloried and already highly competent action game.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The music game bubble stays intact for another year, with no big new ideas - just lots of little ones.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The amount of missing features is disappointing, but as a first step this is an excellent console version of one of gaming's most open-ended and creative experiences.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A loving update of what is still a genuinely fun and innovative genre mash-up, as well as a fascinating glimpse at the glory days of British gaming.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Sony's super-stylised future racer may still be download-only but this expansion is worth every penny.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Far more than meets the eye, the triumph here isn't the successful return of Kid Icarus but Nintendo's most involved and nuanced shooter of recent years.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The funniest and best-looking entry in the series so far, but also the least innovative and accessible in terms of gameplay.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Double Fine's best game since Psychonauts is unique in both setting and gameplay, with an enchanting mix of absurdist logic and striking presentation.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    For a series where graphics are irrelevant concentrating on surface details makes for a below par update.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A cheerier, more versatile alternative to Trials HD, that manages to make trial-and-error fun.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent first expansion pack that adds not just new but genuinely different content to the mix.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's an ungenerous expansion, but if you've not tried the original this is a slightly healthier option.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Going green has never been so entertaining, with the only game this Christmas where brain not brawn will save the world.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The closest thing to Ikaruga on a smartphone and despite the psychedelic presentation one of Jeff Minter's more lucid shooters of recent years.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Forget the original home console title, this charming 8-bit throwback is by far the superior game.
