    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A hugely imaginative take on a deeply conservative genre, which shows one of 2D gaming's best developers at the very height of their talents.
    • 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.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Bravely uncompromising in terms of the freedom it offers the player and its willingness to go against current trends in gaming, Dishonored is adult video-gaming at its best.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A superb multiplayer game that takes a very simple premise and crafts from it one of the best competitive arcade games in years.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A perfect mix of retro and modern sensibilities that loses none of the charm or accessibility of the originals, but adds a great deal more variety.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best exclusive on the PS3 is also one of this gen's greatest (and most attractive) action adventures.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best Metal Gear Solid game ever made, as it bravely reinvents both its gameplay and its storytelling to far greater effect than ever before.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    As far as we're concerned this is easily the best Gears Of War game, but it's also one that refines and exhausts every gameplay element to such a degree that it seems like a far more final end to the trilogy than Epic probably intended. If there are more games, and we assume there will be, they're going to have to be significantly different to seem worthwhile.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The landmark script and puzzles override the bland artwork as the classic graphic adventure returns.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It offers little progress from the PC version, but then none is really needed in what is a masterclass in minimalist video game design.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Indie gaming sires another 2D classic, with a platformer that offers more freedom and intrigue than almost anything else on Xbox Live Arcade - or beyond.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A serious game for serious minds or a fun and surprisingly accessible stealth shooter. Just as it should be, the choice is always yours.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The name and anime aesthetic may seem off-putting, but combined with the original this is some of the most engaging interactive storytelling of the modern era.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Its claim to being combat-evolved grows ever more tenuous, but Bungie's last Halo is still the most fully featured first person shooter ever.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are minor improvements here but the next gen versions of Lego Marvel still rely on charm and fan service more than technical finesse.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are some welcome advances here over Fallout 3 but they risk being drowned out by the cripplingly poor technology that still powers the game.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Superb mix of role-playing, puzzle and strategy action, with gorgeous new HD graphics and an addictive online mode.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very worthwhile upgrade of the portable original, that stands up well in terms of visuals and easily exceeds Resident Evil 6 in terms of atmosphere and intrigue.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent port from the PC, which maintains all of the original's innovative open-endedness and most of its graphical prowess.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Viewed on its own merits it’s a highly entertaining and feature-packed video game, and that’s all that really matters.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    EA beats Nintendo at its own game with a keep-fit package that seems substantially more useful than Wii Fit.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not only one of Cave's best 2D shooters but one of the definitive entries in the whole genre, with a deep weapons system and dazzling pyrotechnics.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may not have changed very much from last year's entry but what small improvements there are still makes this the best F1 racer of the modern era.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It can be a little inconsistent in terms of both actions and puzzles but late entry or not this is one of the funniest and best-presented adventures of the year.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A clever spin on the MOBA genre that strips away the complications and nerdy presentation to create a fast-paced but deceptively complex action strategy game.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are some inherent limitations with playing a four-player fighting game on a 3DS but this overcomes almost all of them, to become one of the portable’s definitive multiplayer games.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best combat flight sim ever on a console, with a huge range of aircraft and locations - as well as difficultly settings to suit every kind of gamer.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Punishingly and infuriatingly hard, but also the best retro-inspired platform puzzler for years.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best new music title for years and a significant improvement on the first game, with almost every complaint from the original addressed.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Business as usual with a mediocre single-player campaign and one of the best multiplayer experiences in all gaming – and at last one that works just as well on consoles as on PC.
