    A superbly judged revamp of Fire Emblem that final elevates the series to classic status and in the process creates one of the most engrossing and accessible strategy games ever.
    • 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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the best iOS games for several months is a wonderfully disturbing horror story that innovates in terms of everything from visuals and interface to its macabre narrative.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best Bit.Trip game so far and one of the best ever blends of retro and modern aesthetics, in terms of both presentation and gameplay.
    • 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.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Daringly ambitious in terms of both subject matter and structure, BioShock Infinite is the most successful mix of storytelling and action this generation of gaming has ever seen.
    • 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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The Behemoth’s best game yet and a hilarious mix of co-op platforming and absurdly entertaining multiplayer madness.
    • 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.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A stunning achievement in both storytelling and third person adventure, with unforgettable characters and tense, brilliantly paced action.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An excellent portable version of one of the best strategy games of all-time, and one that could have a profound effect on mobile gaming.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best non-Mario platformer ever made and a stunning work of imagination, where the visuals, music, and gameplay all resonate in perfect harmony.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It’s still the same old imperfections holding it back, but that doesn’t stop Rome II being the best Total War so far – and one of the most accomplished strategy games of recent years.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A wonderfully unfashionable mixture of old school aesthetics that doesn’t so much demand your time as steal it away without your permission.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There might not be any slow motion door breaches but this is the smartest and funniest first person game since Portal, with an interactive script that is as a profound as it is constantly amusing.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The text adventure is reborn as one of the smartest and most engrossing interactive stories of the year, and with one of the best touchscreen interfaces ever seen.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best Ace Attorney so far, with a wonderfully entertaining series of mysteries that showcase the series’ oddball characters to their very best – and make some subtle but welcome improvements to the gameplay.
    • 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.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the best Zelda games of all time and one which manages to quietly rewrite the series’ usual formula in some surprising, and surprisingly successful, ways.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Easily the best game on the Wii U and one that can proudly stand alongside Nintendo’s greatest, even if it doesn’t quite top the Super Mario Galaxy games.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    PC purists may still scoff but this is an excellent version of one of gaming’s most open-ended and creative experiences.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Exactly as entertaining as you’d expect from a collaboration between two of Japan’s most talented developers, and a relatively good – if extremely belated – PC port.
    • 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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Treasure’s cult 2D shooter remains as uniquely entertaining as always, and surprisingly well adapted for a modern PC.
    • 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.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It could do with a few more ancillary options, and a more interesting backstory, but in terms of online gameplay Titanfall is now the game to beat this gen.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A carefully considered sequel that avoids upsetting existing fans and offers an olive branch to newcomers – all the while retaining its position as one of the most challenging, and rewarding, video games of modern times.
