    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Being a Persona spin-off is almost incidental to what remains one of the best new one-on-one fighters of the outgoing generation.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is not a perfect game, and it never has been, but Persona 4 has always been our favourite Japanese role-player and this is the definitive version of it.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Exactly as entertaining as you’d expect from a collaboration between two of Japan’s most talented developers, and one of the best action games of the generation.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An excellent expansion to the already superb original, that cleverly weaves in new features that force you to relearn and adapt everything you thought you knew about Enemy Unknown.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Utterly charming and subversively clever in that classic Nintendo way, this is one of the best games on the 3DS and one of the mostly perfectly polished titles on any system this year.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A usefully improved version of what was already one of the most successfully ambitious action games of the last several years, with the second screen functions proving an unexpected bonus.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Giving a purposefully retro 2D platformer a 3D makeover sounds like the worst idea ever, but the end result only reconfirms Cave Story as a modern classic.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A satisfying ending to one of WiiWare's few success stories and an inspired mix of retro and modern presentation and gameplay.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It might not gain anything from being on the 3DS, but the mere fact that Capcom's fighter also loses nothing is a hugely impressive achievement.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A truly great portable strategy game that’s original, accessible, and addictive. And for once the microtransactions benefit the player as well as the publisher.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's not the originality of the design, but the workmanship, that makes this one of the best FPS ever.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Euphoric mix of interactive gameplay, visuals and music that proves not only the wider potential for Kinect but for video games in general.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The fact may dismay parents but this is an excellent sequel that goes to considerable effort to inject new ideas and fix earlier problems – making it one of the best kids games available today.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It is just more of the same, but however minor the improvement this is still co-op gaming at its best.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the best stealth games in years and an accomplished 2D platformer in its own right, with a near perfect balance, of depth, accessibility, and bloodshed.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This generation's best arcade racer in an extra value compendium that really is a slice of driving heaven.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The Behemoth’s best game yet and a hilarious mix of co-op platforming and absurdly entertaining multiplayer madness.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best new Pokémon for a decade and a game of exquisite depth and longevity, with visuals and online options that finally do the series justice.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    New Pokémon games often introduce minor features like this but they often feel like slim justification for a new game, and are abandoned the instant a new sequel comes out. Most of X and Y’s new ideas are more substantial, or at least more fun, and help to cement this as the definitive Pokémon game of the modern age.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An excellent conversion of the original iOS hit, and a wonderfully disturbing horror story that innovates in terms of everything from visuals and interface to its macabre narrative.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A fantastic little action puzzlers that is one of the best surprises of the year, and a welcome escape from would-be epics and over-hyped blockbusters.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best episode yet, that ups the ante in terms of not just the zombie threat but how you interact with some of gaming's most convincing characters.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    TxK
    The definitive version of Tempest and as such one of the best arcade games ever made, even if it’s only a minor improvement on previous versions.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A carefully considered sequel that avoids upsetting existing fans and offers an olive branch to newcomers – but although the PC version is the best it’s by a slimmer margin than many would’ve hoped.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An almost total success and one of the best ever strategy games, with amazing scope and accessibility.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Treasure’s cult 2D shooter remains as uniquely entertaining as always, and surprisingly well adapted for a modern PC.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Not as perfectly formed as the original, but close enough - with some of the best story-telling and voiceover work in all gaming.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An instantly accessible control system opens the floodgates to satisfying gameplay, hilarious upgrades and highly replayable levels. Ridiculous Fishing rarely makes a misstep.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There's no gain without pain in this unusual and atmospheric, but incredibly punishing, action RPG.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The Wii U adds nothing to the experience, but neither does it take away from what is one of the year's most feature-packed and enthralling epics.
