    • 70 Critic Score
    The reason the PC version works better is simply down to the keyboard and mouse controls, which allow for much faster and responsive movement.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Donkey Kong Country is still no classic platformer, but this reboot comes surprisingly close to rivaling modern Super Marios.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Definitely the best Spider-Man game for several years, but it falls short of the character's full potential and the high watermark of Spider-Man 2.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not the silly novelty it might sound like but one of the most enjoyably addictive and cleverly original action stealth games on the PlayStation 3.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    On the PC there are too few new features to satisfy existing fans, but on the PlayStation 4 the joys of being an island dictator still feel enjoyably fresh.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An even more bare bones collection than on home consoles - even if it does include the best portable version of Snake Eater so far.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are some issues with game difficultly and length, but this is one of the most successful Kickstarters so far – and an excellent retro style role-player in its own right.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Possibly the most impressive use of 3D amongst all the launch games, and despite some obvious gripes a good solid football sim to boot.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun, funny, and wonderfully gory 2D shooter, but it’s not quite as tightly designed as OlliOlli and certainly lacks the same longevity.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As polished a product as Rockstar has ever produced but the action and storytelling are rigidly one note, and neither is sustained for long enough.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A worthy follow-up to Deadly Premonition, although whether it earns the same classic status will depend largely on the subsequent episodes.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Unoriginal and blandly presented, but an effective vindication of Move - with at least half of the games being the best ever adaptations of their sports.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The action and storytelling fails to satisfy, but the dense atmosphere and uncompromisingly bleak setting almost makes up for the gameplay failings.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Jeff Minter rides again, but in a considerably more laidback and accessible action puzzler that's very well suited to the iPhone.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Like any good firework display this fun platformer retains its charm even after the novelty runs out.
    • 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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Repetition and overfamiliarity are always the best ways to nullify fear, but until they set in this is one of the most effectively scary video games ever made.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The usual mix of the mundane, the inspired, and the not quite fully-formed, but at least two of the five maps are minor classics.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best version of the worst Disgaea might be for fans only but it's still a great strategy role-player.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An impressively ambitious attempt to open up game modding to everyone, although at the moment the action is curiously backwards.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A remake more than a reinvention, but one that retains all the simple gameplay and outrageous gore that made the original games fun.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fantasy enemies clearly work very well with Far Cry, but this abridged version of the main game really should be having more fun with its characters than this.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Lego does real-time strategy and makes it look easy - rather too easy as far as the difficultly goes.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent update of an almost forgotten British classic, and a promising start to the Gremlin Presents series.
    • 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.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The old Guitar Hero magic is still there but the almost complete lack of new ideas isn't going to do anything to halt the decline in music game sales.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The problem is there's very little extra of any importance and much of what there is doesn't work that well.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A hugely ambitious space strategy that rivals even Civilization in terms of presentation and addiction - despite a few rogue elements.
