    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A worthy alternative to Braid with its own unique personality and some of the cleverest puzzles around.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Something close to a minimal effort, but with FIFA 10 powering the action it's still hard to resist.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Pokemon needs evolution not remakes, but it's still hard to resist the most feature rich version yet.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The improvements are incremental at best but this still seems like a near perfect MMA game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Only nostalgiaists will want to play it at length but this shames modern shooters with its ambition.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The Settlers goes back to basics, putting a friendly face on complex resource management.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A perfect recreation of an arcade classic (plus Magic Sword) and the new gold standard for retro gaming.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Mercilessly difficult, and unusually complicated, but the best looking and most varied BIT. TRIP yet.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A cheerier, more versatile alternative to Trials HD, that manages to make trial-and-error fun.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Masterful shake-up of not just Dragon Quest but the whole of the Japanese role-playing genre.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The third time is still lucky for the best version yet of one the greatest ever Japanese role-players.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best new feature has to wait till September but this is still a useful improvement on last year.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great tie-in and, much more importantly, a great game. Generous in terms of content and childish fun.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As much mood piece as video game, but the mix of stark atmosphere and clever puzzles is hard to resist.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Great value download, with an excellent capture the flag game that it would be positively rude not to try.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Bullet hell at its finest, with some genuine innovation for a 2D shooter and some great visuals.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A clever mix of Team Fortress 2 and Tower Defence that is a lot more nuanced and inventive than it appears.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    PopCap Games' best game and probably the best ever Tower Defence – and it works just as well as you'd hope on the Xbox 360.
    • 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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great start to Codemasters' Formula 1 career, with astonishing visuals, great attention to detail and superb handling.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Probably the best Space Invaders update yet, with a dazzling mix of new and old gameplay, graphics and sound.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a mystery why Mitchell has allowed Pang to remain dormant for so long given this consistently clever, if slightly cheap looking, revival.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    More realistic than ever, but not necessarily a better game as a result of it - especially as the frontline features and options have seen little change.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Even though it's let down by longevity and a lack of ancillary options this still plays like a classic and is one of the best new shooters of its generation.
    • 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.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Indie gaming at its retro-loving best, with some of the most cunningly-designed and purposefully infuriating 2D gameplay of the year.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The plot may have gone off the deep end but thankfully the puzzles remain perfectly logical in what is Layton's biggest and arguably best adventure yet.
    • 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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The whole package absolutely shames most other downloadable expansions (including the earlier Red Dead ones) and as silly and shallow as it all is it's just as unmissable as the main game itself.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Fans are unlikely to be too disappointed, and the developer's automotive obsession is always evident, but this is definitely a refinement not a revolution.
