    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not only one of the 3DS's best launch games but also one of the most accessible and entertaining turn-based strategies of recent years.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best Lego game so far and one that defies both its simplicity and familiarity for an almost effortlessly entertaining co-op experience.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Neither nerdish simulator nor abstract arcade game, Shift 2 proves that compromises don't have to be boring - as long as they have autolog.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Superb mix of role-playing, puzzle and strategy action, with gorgeous new HD graphics and an addictive online mode.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The video game equivalent of a concept album, and a hugely successful mix of visual, music and gameplay influences.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Highbrow parody or the best lightsabre game never made? Suda51's deconstructionist classic manages to be both.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Wonderfully presented and impressively imaginative 2D action puzzler, that almost seems too good for DSiWare.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A loving, and genuinely funny, homage to old school role-players and the people that play them.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    At last a Fallout download that's genuinely worth the bandwidth, with a sparkling script that's better than either of the main games.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Achingly beautiful god sim that struggles at times over structure and difficultly curve, but never in terms of spectacle or vision.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An adult video game that is neither exploitative nor pretentious, but instead weaves a fun yet incisive tale about all too human characters.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best marriages of gameplay, graphics and music ever seen on a portable and a triumphant return to the roots of rhythm action.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of Cave's finest moments loses surprisingly little in its move to the iPhone, with excellent controls and plenty of extras.
    • 87 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.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Still one of the best on-the-rails shooters ever made and vastly superior to the modern sequels, despite some minor issues with the remake.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Punishingly and infuriatingly hard, but also the best retro-inspired platform puzzler for years.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A worthy successor that is sure to please many and is easily the best option for any Formula One fanatics out there. It's not without its problems, but it has moved the series forward with a vastly improved handling model and a more engrossing race environment that will almost certainly have you believing you really are Lewis Hamilton for a split-second.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Great value co-op-orientated dual stick shooter that revels in its shallowness and makes a virtue of its one note, but superbly tuned, gameplay.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Still one of the best action games ever made, but this is far from the definitive version and may actually be the worst.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent port from the PC, which maintains all of the original's innovative open-endedness and most of its graphical prowess.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    New modes such as NBA's Greatest are a welcome inclusion and add longevity to the game. Basketball fans will also be excited by the improvements to Franchise mode, and the overall first class presentation.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Far more interested in fixing the flaws of the original than most sequels, this is probably the best, or at least most accurate, use of Kinect so far.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Still easily the best sports management game around, and although most of this year's changes are fairly trivial they're all extremely welcome.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Superb mix of Tower Defense and action role-player that is one of the year's best and most addictive co-operative games.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Some of the best multiplayer action ever seen on the PC, although not without its issues - as well as a deeply disappointing single-player campaign.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not only one of Cave's best 2D shooters but one of the definitive entries in the whole genre, with a deep weapons system and dazzling pyrotechnics.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Exactly what the 3DS needed to reenergise its fortunes and restate its purpose, and even if it's not as good as Galaxy it's still the best portable Mario since the Game Boy.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Halo's 10th anniversary certainly deserves celebrating but a HD remake only serves to underline how little the series has moved forward over the years.
