    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still a loving remake of the influential strategy role-player, but not quite as good as the PSP version and actually slightly more expensive.
    • 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 pointless rehash for series regulars, but if you've never experienced the joys of being a totalitarian dictator this is still good clean city-building fun.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A football sim and role-playing game may be one of the oddest genre mix-ups ever attempted but this shoots and scores with surprising accuracy.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent update of an almost forgotten British classic, and a promising start to the Gremlin Presents series.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although this is a considerably more interesting and accomplished game than any of its predecessors it's still nowhere near the cutting edge of the first person shooter genre. And we say that not just because of its abandonment of all that Halo introduced to the concept a decade ago.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the most beautiful video games ever made and if the gameplay isn't quite as angelic it's perfectly righteous in its own way.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mice seem to have got at the game modes and vehicle selection but despite the paucity of options this is still one of the most original and fun racers on any format.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As hardcore as first person shooters get but fascinatingly distinctive as a result - if you have the resolve to endure its rougher edges.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A cut price puzzler that almost manages to make the periodic table seem fun and exciting, and is certainly better than recent Super Monkey Balls.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A great Metroid game and a great Aliens tie-in, and only a few rough edges stop this from being a minor classic all of its own.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A mess of compromises and sops to more casual gamers and yet somehow the game still manages to offer a fun and accessible facsimile of real air combat.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Technically it's nowhere near as good as Dance Central, but for most people this is going to be a lot more fun - despite the fact that it still barely works properly.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A genuinely entertaining and imaginative child-friendly dungeon crawler, that's at least as good as the recent Lego games and not nearly as cynical as you might think.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly clever use of the licence, that maintains the charming whimsy of the books and marries it to one of the best 2D platformers of the year.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent multiplayer and the best version of Battlefield ever on a console, but a lesser game than on the PC and with a very poor single-player mode.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A great 20th anniversary gift for Sonic fans and although it can never make up for all the series' low points it at least helps draw a line under them.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mountains of game modes and content but only a molehill amount of personality, this does nothing for either Tetris or the 3DS's back catalogue.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are only a few minor improvements over the Wii version, but this is still a classy remake with some of the best split screen action on consoles.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's still plenty of the old Assassin's Creed magic in parts, but this proves an unnecessary sequel and one with few genuinely welcome new ideas.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The aging formula may be getting by purely on charm at this point, but this is still the best Harry Potter game ever made - Lego or not.
    • 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.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent portable flight sim that will please both series fans and newcomers - until they realise how short and underdeveloped it is.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An odd mixture of the classic and the inessential, but there's no arguing over the quality of at least three of the maps in this relatively content rich download.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Inessential but entertaining prequel campaign that offers a medley of enemies, weapons and set pieces from throughout the trilogy.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A perfect example of the sort of game only the PSP can provide and a surprisingly progressive Japanese role-player to boot.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Impressively original, if still fairly abstruse, platform puzzler that challenges you to think as differently as it does.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The original PC version is still justifiably popular but touchscreen controls only turn a difficult game into an unreasonably frustrating one.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Spring cleaning has never been so entertaining in this well presented and cunningly addictive physics-based platformer.
