    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A frustrating ending to what has become an increasingly disappointing download series, even though the premise remains one of the most imaginative for years.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A typical Fallout download that buries a few interesting new ideas and locations beneath a patchwork of overfamiliar, and increasingly outdated, content.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's a clever idea but being in charge of a swarm of moronic blue midgets proves a fairly fleeting and frustrating pleasure.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Few PSP games look as good, but this is still a hugely disappointing return for Parasite Eve and the ruination of a once intriguing heroine.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It may have been cutting edge in 1997 but the Shin Megami Tensei series, and Japanese role-players in general, have moved on a lot since then and this entry is really only for completists.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Another largely pointless download that fails to capitalise on any of Mass Effect 2's achievements.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A disappointing second chapter that's short on comedy, game length and decent puzzles.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This doesn't solve any of the original's problems with storytelling and variety, it just makes them worse.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The glory days of Mario Golf and Tennis seem very far away, in this lazy and patronisingly simplistic sports compendium.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The third Guitar Hero game for the DS isn't as lazy as you'd think but the concept is still deeply flawed.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Another uninspiring episode of nothing but filler and hopes for the future, although that’s as much a criticism of episodic content as it is the game itself.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Sega's new dumbed down sequel isn't a disaster but it requires little skill and proffers little satisfaction.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Everything but the gameplay is great - but as fun as creating your own stories may be, it's not enough.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Shallow, sexist, and largely nonsensical. The action is amongst Suda51’s best but it’s not leveraged in any way that justifies the failings of the rest of the game.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The mix of influences seems like they should work very well, but the limitations will frustrate both shooter fans and Minecraft addicts.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Compounded by the nonsensical script and one-dimensional characters it’s as if the game is specifically designed to feel as shallow and disconnected as possible. Lightning Returns might be an enjoyable enough folly for fans, but there’s very little here for anyone else.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There are some innovative ideas here but poor balancing, restrictive matchmaking and too little content overwhelm the positives.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There's barely a single idea here that hasn't been borrowed from elsewhere, and usually done better - but as a compendium of other people's puzzles it still has its charm.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The controls are superior to Overlord II, but the gameplay and difficulty is even more simplified.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An inoffensive way to waste a few hours with friends or family, particularly younger ones, but a waste of both Insomniac and Ratchet & Clank's talents.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    On paper it sounds like the ultimate zombie game, but a year later and the technical issues are still as decayed and broken as the undead enemies.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A small improvement on Dead Island, but there’s still barely anything that either works as well as advertised or is isn’t just stolen wholesale from other, better, games.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Cheap, but not cheerful, first person shooter, with nothing new to offer the genre but change from £20.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Series fans may view it as a disaster but the problem is that Thief isn’t even interesting enough to get angry about, despite the well hewn stealth gameplay.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A game that should probably have been cancelled rather than delayed, with its complete absence of personality or new ideas.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    While it lasts an entertaining and fairly imaginative tech demo, but none of the mini-games will have you coming back for more.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    As shameless a clone of Geometry Wars as you could ever hope to see. But fairly good fun all the same.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There's an obvious love here for the genre, and retro gaming in general, but as strategic role-players go this is far from a grandmaster.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The original 3DS game is sacrificed on the altar of microtransactions and grubby monetisation, almost erasing any sense of fun in the process.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A World War II-themed Splinter Cell, but with too many technical and design flaws to satisfy.
