    • 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
    • 40 Critic Score
    The same linear, patronisingly simplistic time waster it always was, but if you really must have a remaster of Resident Evil 6 this isn’t a bad job.
    • 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.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Acceptable fodder for undemanding children, but wasting such an epic crossover on such a non-event of a game has never seemed more perverse.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Some clever visuals and a modern setting can’t stop the third Chronicles game from being the least successful, even if it’s the most ambitious.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    There's a real lack of magic in what is essentially Harry Potter And The Half-Hearted Mini-Game Collection.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    First person shooters clearly do work on the PS Vita, but proving that fact is the only real achievement of this otherwise insipid portable experience.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Innerspace meets Smash T.V., except retaining only the worst elements of both in this slow-paced and tedious dual-stick shooter.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The real mystery here is why Nintendo continues to allow such a minimum effort cash grab to dilute the Pokémon name, in yet another bland and repetitive dungeon crawler.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Despite the name this lacks any kind of zip at all, in what may be the most mundane and unexciting platformer Nintendo has ever put their name to.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Surviving zombies is fairly easy but the real enemy here is tedium and a shopping list of design mistakes that makes this one of the worst zombie games of the year.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    A 3D platformer so bad it brings to mind Bubsy 3D rather than Super Mario 64, in what is a considerable step down from the already mediocre original.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There’s probably no way to make After Burner interesting again without turning it into a completely different game, but there was no need for Sega to prove that fact yet again.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It’d be nice to say that at least it’s something different but Contrast is far more mundane and derivative than it first appears. It’s also a near farce on a technical level.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    There are some interesting ideas and visual effects at play here, but they're not nearly strong enough to support such a monotonous adventure.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A very poor first person shooter buoyed up by the promise of things to come, and an impressively ambitious attempt at a cross-format connected universe.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The weapon-crafting is great but given the manipulative microtransactions this free-to-play shooter is not worth your time, let alone your money.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    As repetitive and predictable as any movie tie-in, but the core combat is sound and Green Lantern's powers are handled well.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There's barely enough time to rail at the missed opportunities in one of the least substantial games ever.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The premise of a ghostly investigator attempting to save himself and his town from demonic forces shouldn’t be this tedious. Unfortunately though making the fantastical seem mundane is one of the game’s few real achievements.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The switch to turn-based strategy works perfectly but only fans will tolerate the endless cut scenes.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Three obscure lightgun games and the world's most unpopular online shooter do not exactly prove a great showcase for PlayStation Move.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    For a brand new Nintendo franchise this is short not just on content, but also compelling gameplay and a sense of fun.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    For a Dynasty Warriors game this features some useful innovations, but compared to any other series it remains as irredeemably shallow and repetitive as ever.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The world needs a top notch open world samurai adventure, but sadly it's not to be found here in this strange mix of the perverse, the peculiar, and the downright boring.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A bad idea, poorly realised. Not only does this sully the already tarnished name of Silent Hill but it's a tediously poor dungeon crawler in its own right.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    You don't need to be a Front Mission fan to get upset about the wasted potential in this lifeless, one-dimensional shooter.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    No matter how the new movie turns out this tie-in makes all the usual mistakes with bland, unoriginal action and an incoherent narrative.
