    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The name and the screenshots have probably put most people off already but this is a classic example of Cave's mastery of the 2D shooter.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Its goals and improvements may be more modest than the last game but this is still an enjoyable return trip to Italy - especially in the company of friends.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Despite all that could have gone wrong this is one of the best remakes this generation, with a triumphant return for old school split screen multiplayer.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Consistently underrated at the time this masterful mix of influences makes hardly a single mistake in all three games - and definitely deserves a fourth.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may be a relatively small improvement but this is definitely the best of the series yet, and as a result one of the DS's best puzzle games.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Helicopter sims may be a niche interest but after IL-2 Sturmovik this is the best flight simulation available on current consoles.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best horror game of this generation and one of the few courageous enough to try new ideas and make the player a victim, not a saviour.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not one of the standout entries for the series, with just a few useful additions that never go quite far enough. Not that it tempers the game's addictive powers.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As unique a vision as video gaming has ever seen and one able to use even its many incompetencies to entertain and surprise.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A useful expansion that puts an appreciably different spin on the original gameplay, to the point where many are likely to prefer this tour of duty.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of Steam's best kept secrets and a cracking indie title that both pokes fun at and celebrates the charming absurdity of role-playing games.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not only one of the best WiiWare games ever, but an inspired 2D action puzzler to put even LocoRoco and Rolando in the shade.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It might be a pain to get hold of but this engrossing visual novel has more mystery and tension in its simple text screens than a hundred CGI cut scenes.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Rather than iron out the faults of the original this new platformer construction kit tries to hide them under a wave of useful but inessential extras.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An improvement on the original but only in the details, not as a result of any big new ideas. Genre-starved survival horror fans should be well satisfied though.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are a few niggling technical issues but this still easily laps any other serious racing game on the iPhone - or any other portable format.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The iPhone's best game emerges from the shadow of LocoRoco as one of the best portable puzzlers ever.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    So the question is: how good is the new map pack? And without hesitation the answer is: very good indeed.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An inspired reworking of The Sentinel, introducing a new generation to one of the most tense and atmospheric action puzzlers ever made.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Double Fine's best game since Psychonauts is unique in both setting and gameplay, with an enchanting mix of absurdist logic and striking presentation.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may not be the deepest of fighters but it is one of the most entertaining and imaginative, not to mention bug-eyed crazy.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The overwrought storytelling is not the sort of taste many will want to acquire, but that doesn't stop this being one of the best tactical role-players ever.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's not going to change the world, but at least it manages to change first person shooters back into something more irreverent and fun.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Watching paint dry really can be entertaining, in this relentlessly cheerful mix of platformer and interactive colouring book.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's not a real overhaul for the series, but it is the best version so far - and so by extension one of the best portable video games ever made.

    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent update of the classic old beat 'em-up that maintains the iconic two-player mode and adds some welcome new enhancements.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The pace of innovation is only fractionally slower in the second expansion to Relic's superb action strategy, with plenty to entertain new fans and old.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Faithful almost to a fault to the classic original, but still a stunning achievement for the DS and a thoroughly engrossing adventure in its own right.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If not the best tennis sim ever then certainly the most realistic, and with a training tool that should be the envy of any other game.
