    There are a few points of interest here but the greatest accomplishment of this lacklustre role-player is making Dragon Quest IX seem even better by comparison.

    Despite a few interesting ideas this never manages to relive the glory days of top-down racing.

    Lords Of Shadow 2 waddles on for 20-odd hours and would’ve been twice the game if it was half the length, with the all the unwanted padding and repetition taken out. It’s such a shame because the first game, and MercurySteam, showed such promise. But this is a huge backwards step and we fear the undead charms of Castlevania may finally have been killed off once and for all.

    It’s depressing that the one modern game that shows the most effort is also the least satisfying to play, but if Sonic is ever to work in three-dimensions Lost World gives no clue as to how it might work.

    A clever use of head tracking tech is sabotaged by a game that seems specifically designed to subvert it.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The laidback atmosphere and gentle flower tending hide a game that is far too predictable and frustrating to offer any lasting entertainment.

    ModNation Racers was never top draw but this drags a previously competent franchise into the bowls of low budget cash-in hell.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    This doesn't fix the flaws of the original it simply finds more to keep them company, in a game that's as banal and repetitive as its protagonists' vocabulary.

    Pikachu has probably had more exciting adventures visiting the men's room, than in this boring spin-off.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    In many ways just a bog standard movie tie-in, but the potential of the licence and the unscrupulousness of the microtransactions make it seem even worse than it is.

    The free web toy gains little from its transformation into a retail game - or in its move to the DS.

    A return to the mini-game collection formula proves predictability disappointing, with slightly more complex games but even less variety.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Never mind the sexism, the awful gameplay is the primary reason you should be avoiding this shockingly poor beat ‘em-up.

    Hopefully the future of Fable won't be any more downloads, as this is another waste of both time and money.

    One of the least worst Kinect games this year, which although it suffers from all the usual control issues is at least mindless fun while it lasts.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The Wii U game was just a few flaws short of a minor classic, but this joyless companion piece is only a couple more problems shy of a complete disaster.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An inexplicably bland shooter from the usually reliable Insomniac that has no personality and no sense of purpose beyond a few hours of empty co-op action.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Cheap, obvious, and unambitious but the zombie theme does at least help to circumvent the technical problems of the original, and offer up some novel co-op options.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It might be okay on a mobile phone but you'll want to reverse the charges for this on Xbox Live Arcade.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The Lord Of The Rings is yet again denied a decent tie-in, with this desperately uninteresting and half broken action role-player.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The motion controls work well enough but this is an unambitious and needlessly simplistic on-the-rails adventure that does nothing to help Move's cause.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unquestionably the best Dynasty Warriors style game so far, but at its core it's still just as shallow and repetitive as any of Koei's games.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Gears Of War meets Diablo turns out not to be a classic pairing after all, or at least not when it comes to this low rent hotchpotch of other people's ideas.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It’s obviously been made on the cheap, but that’s no excuse for the legion of technical problems and the embarrassingly unsophisticated script of this obnoxious action game.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's good to see Assassin's Creed having a positive influence on game settings but this historical would-be epic has little else to recommend it.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A step in the right direction, but still nowhere close to being the ideal Transformers game.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    3D graphics may be the future, but this dull beat 'em-up is unlikely to convince you of the fact.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Spore hits an evolutionary dead end, as the "everything sim" becomes just another dull platformer.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Nostalgia hounds will find plenty to excite them but viewed under the cold light of modern day Superfrog is not, and never really was, a very good platformer.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A more noble failure than most Kinect games, but a failure all the same. And even beneath the control issues not a particularly good on-the-rails shooter.
