    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still a minor royal in the fighting game pantheon, but a hardworking one that beats Marvel Vs. Capcom in terms of depth - if not accessibility and brand recognition.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Proof that Japanese role-players can evolve without having to losing their own unique identity, although Xillia stops just short of being a full-on revolution.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not the best entry in the series, but it does have some of the best puzzles. As well as a bombastic, if slightly confused, story that will leave both new and old fans wanting more.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It has a lot wider appeal than you'd think, but it'll take a sequel for this to become truly heroic.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The combination still makes little sense but if Lego Freddy Mercury doesn't make you smile nothing will.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the most pointless sequels ever put to cartridge, and although the core Pokémon gameplay still shines through this is easily the worst version so far.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best bread simulator ever made, and despite the rampant silliness there’s some inspired gameplay mechanics and level design baked in.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a dazzling technical feat, the only problem is the actual game bits aren't all that much fun.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you've never played a Pokémon game this is an excellent place to jump aboard, and you can add at least one extra point to the score as a result. But for anyone else this is an easy to ignore stopgap.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The mixture of old school, new school, and Metroidvania works surprisingly well – even if Strider’s long-awaited reboot still feels slightly too safe.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's still not a full reinvention of the Lego template but it is one of the most enjoyable uses of it so far, with an open world Gotham and a cast of characters to rival Arkham City.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The worlds of hairdressing and vegetable fancying combine in the best, and only, topiary simulator.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best real-time strategies for some time, although it’s a shame that despite a few new ideas it’s not really interested in pushing the genre forward.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It might be allergic to innovation but there's no denying the enthusiasm and attention to detail that's been lavished on this defiantly traditionalist role-player.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly successful mobile spin-off that uses the key elements of Hitman to good effect but remains perfectly playable to those new to the franchise.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A slightly disappointing sequel, that sacrifices too much in pursuit of the almighty dollar, but this is still a great all-round racer with something to please almost every kind of petrolhead.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The real test for Mercenary is whether the game would stand out if it was released on a home console, but the answer to that is probably not. The nods to GoldenEye offer some deviance from the norm but overall Mercenary does too little to distinguish itself from the competition. That there is no competition on the PS Vita gives it something of a free pass, but it still seems more like a proof of concept than a standalone game.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not as compelling as its predecessor, but as a four-player alternative to the Lego games this an enjoyable enough attempt at a Tomb Raider lite.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Family friendly survival horror with a quietly ambitious, and largely successful, attempt to get the most out of Kinect.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Jeff Minter returns with one of his most surreal retro tributes so far, but if you can keep your sanity it's also one of his best.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The granddaddy of online first person shooters returns and although you could quibble over the price the classic gameplay is as solid as ever.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An intriguing antidote to Modern Warfare that's realistic to a fault, but never dull or predictable.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun addition to the sandbox genre, that adds a more structured campaign and achievable goals – at the cost of only a little in the way of accessibility.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    uDraw Studio comes off second best, not so much because it has less options but because, unlike Art Academy, it doesn't make as much of an effort to explain either itself or any of the art techniques that might be useful.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A few steps forward and a few steps back leave this technically accomplished shooter exactly where it was: still searching for a heart and identity of its own.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A cheekily entertaining download that turns an extremely simple idea into a disarmingly nuanced, and effortlessly charming, multiplayer battler.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A largely satisfying ending for what has been a frustratingly uneven season of graphic adventures.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best original Kinect game this year, and if it wasn't for the vagaries of the controller itself one of the best video games around for the very young.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Square Enix finally gets the Crystal Chronicles formula right with this great multiplayer action RPG.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A great alternative to Candy Crush and its clones, that’s just a few tweaks – and a visual makeover – away from being a classic puzzler.
