    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    WiiWare's most consistent series of downloads returns with a unique take on the 2D shooter and the most literal on-the-rails action ever.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An infinitely better game than you'd expect, but one that falls just short of true greatness.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A vast improvement on the previous console port and a sequel that seems less disappointing on the 360.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It has its flaws but this is still one of the most interesting and original multiplayer games of the year.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A genuine improvement on the first game, although not without some obvious flaws - and the growing sensation that it's all shlock and no substance.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's a lot to admire in this role-playing classic, but still just as much to infuriate and bore.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An utterly bizarre mix of influences that tries to squeeze in far more elements than would ever be deemed sensible, but somehow manages to work despite it all.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A perfectly good 3D remake of Ruby and Sapphire, the only problem being that Ruby and Sapphire were never that great – and this is still not as good as the recent X and Y.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly worthwhile slice of downloadable content, that is better paced and has a more interesting storyline than the main game.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An innovative and cleverly nuanced mix of race game and puzzler - albeit a rather pretentious one.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A perfectly good 3D remake of Ruby and Sapphire, the only problem being that Ruby and Sapphire were never that great – and this is still not as good as the recent X and Y.
    • 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.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An unexpectedly daring mix of Jet Set Radio and de Blob, that may lack in realism or plausibility but certainly not in imagination and fun.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Inessential but entertaining prequel campaign that offers a medley of enemies, weapons and set pieces from throughout the trilogy.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not everything works as promised but somehow that doesn’t really matter when the never-ending platform action remains as entertaining as this.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still not quite essential, but the best of the three downloads and an effective final chapter for the most successfully difficult video game of the modern era.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    In terms of pure gameplay this is perhaps the best serious detective game so far, but the issues with the script and characters remain more than a one pipe problem.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not quite premiere league but Nintendo’s unexpected foray into football management dares to do things differently, and in some cases better, than its rivals.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good start to what is likely to be one of gaming's most important new sports franchises.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite its obvious gameplay failings this is still one of the scariest video games ever made, and this Wii edition a surprisingly effective update.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An almost classic just misses out for a second time, but this is still a successful attempt to show that real-time strategy can be done differently.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A welcome return for the pioneering space adventure, but despite a solid start it will need a steady supply of new content and tweaks to reach elite status.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An unexpected, but largely successful, change of pace as Norse melodrama meets strategic role-playing.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you don't like Spec Ops or Face Off there's nothing for you here, but if you do then these new maps, and the excellent Chaos mode, are a lot more hit than miss.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best Japanese-made third person shooters of the generation, and one that doesn't just seek to copy the West but offer interesting new ideas of its own.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A heavy-handed but impressively sincere attempt to tackle a subject most other games would never dare, with the end resulting being both affecting and entertaining.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Insurmountable problems with the controls stop this from being another Platinum classic but it’s still a fun game, overflowing with charm and wonderfully silly action.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best portable Castlevania yet, with a long needed change of structure and a new focus on combat.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's still the best graphic adventure of the modern age, but the Xbox controls do it no favours.
