    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A bizarre mix of influences and a great script still can't save this inventive but flawed role-player.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not original, and its often unfocused, but the willingness to always offer just one more piece of loot and one more giant boss battle makes Darksiders II a hard game not to enjoy.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A worthy successor to the Descent legacy, but lacking the depth of gameplay that would’ve made it a classic of equal standing.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It may be a one trick pony but Saints Row 2 in space will give anyone an appetite for destruction.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The frustrating thing is we have a feeling Dragon Age II is going to be criticised most for its gameplay changes than its storytelling failings. You might not like the new direction but it works as BioWare intended. But the story you carve with your new combat skills doesn't always seem worthy of such risky innovation.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun but shallow mini-game collection, whose hobbled simulations still make good use of the MotionPlus.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It plays a great game of tennis, certainly the best on a Nintendo portable, but the feeble range of on and offline game modes sharply reduces its appeal.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Picross makes the jump to 3D better than many games, although it's still not quite the perfect puzzler.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An interesting halfway house between demo and full game, whose brevity may even save it from some of the criticisms of the main release.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's an awful lot of recycled content here, but if you like Zombies mode this is still an essential, if potentially expensive, download.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A disappointing version of a (mostly) great game, brought low by both technical and control problems - and the general sense that the game doesn't fit the format.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fascinating journey through the visual history of 2D platformers, although the gameplay doesn’t always match the quality of the many classics it relies on for influence.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A competent but relatively unambitious expansion that adds plenty of new content but no new ideas.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Extremely easy to use interface and excellent tutorials. Download service sounds promising.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best Dead Rising so far and purveyor of some of the most entertainingly absurd weapons in all gaming – just don’t expect any depth or longevity.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's inconsistent and never quite fulfils its potential but this is far more inspired than it first appears and one of the best Wii games of the year.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Much more than just a homage, Consortium might be rough around the edges but the dialogue system and freedom of choice rivals that of any other game.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A wonderfully imaginative and beautifully presented interactive anime, but one that cannot maintain a regular enough supply of surprises to justify even its short running time.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The art and character design is likely to put off as many as it attracts, but underneath is one of the most forwarding-thinking new fighting games of the generation.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not subtle or clever, but this unashamedly uncomplicated shooter is one of the best of the year.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Even for those that would never normally dream of playing a basketball sim this is a great game, although it's best played in small doses.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the few successful attempts to mix politics and gaming is far more entertaining than you'd think.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    By Nintendo standards this is no classic, but by anyone else's it's a fun and accessible 2D platformer.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best portable Silent Hill game never made with great first person combat and impressive presentation.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    We do sometimes, even if it is briefly, get the feeling we're playing a classic PES game from the series. Still rough around the edges though.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Such an old school role-player that most of its influences predate video games, and although an acquired taste it's clearly a refined one as well.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A useful improvement over the last game but one that still avoids instituting any of the serious changes that the series now desperately needs.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An expertly crafted clone that finally shows consoles owners what Diablo is all about. As long as you don't mind playing alone anyway.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A superb remake of two flawed but still interesting entries in the Final Fantasy canon – and certainly far better games than any of the last three.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    In many ways more entertaining than the main game, this enjoyable romp through Albion shows Fable III at its best, but gives little clue as to its future.
