    • 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
    • 40 Critic Score
    An odd mix of Test Drive Unlimited, Assassin’s Creed, and Destiny. And while the combination is tastier than it sounds it also has an awful lot of lumps in it.
    • 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
    Manga and anime fans will no doubt get some pleasure out of the game’s endless array of cameos, but viewed on its merits as a fighting game this is a clear defeat.
    • 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.
    • 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
    Red Dead Redemption is a great single player game, but this only emphasises the mediocre multiplayer.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A horribly disappointing mini-game collection that has none of the qualities of the real WarioWare titles and won’t entertain even the most game-starved Wii U owner for more than an hour or so.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Probably the least surprising game on the 3DS, but even if you do like Dynasty Warriors games this is still one of the lesser spin-offs.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The most disappointing Mass Effect 3 download so far, which once again emphasizes overfamiliar action instead of meaningful storytelling.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    An interesting script and missions can't save this miserable morass of repetitious role-playing.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Mama's sideline in gardening proves to be just as shallow and repetitive as her cookery courses.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Mixing Tower Defense, third person action, and beloved ’80s toys should’ve been a recipe for success, but this bland sequel doesn’t do justice to any of its ideas.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    All its best bits are clearly stolen from Batman: Arkham Asylum, but for a movie tie-in this still counts as above average.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    One of the worst introductions to Pokémon - and gaming in general - a small child could suffer. The video games equivalent of corporal punishment.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The trailers may make the film look like a live action Halo but the game plays nowhere near as well.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A mix of low budget, (relatively) high ambition, and mediocre execution, Defiance is a hard game to hate but an easy one to lose interest in.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A shallow and unambitious tech demo, of the sort that console launches specialise in. The action works perfectly well but it’s instantly repetitive to the point of inanity.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Sickeningly offensive use of not just microtransactions but every underhand trick in the marketing handbook, which is a shame as the underlying game isn’t bad.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The original god game will find itself short of worshipers, with gameplay that's as old as Methuselah.
