    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A typically awful boxed set for such an influential series, but the games themselves work well in HD and this is still a useful primer for the series.
    • 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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Some of the best 2D sprite work ever seen in a video game, and all used to support an impressively varied and imaginative Metroidvania.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best retro homages of recent years, that cleverly combines the best elements of older 2D games with plenty of new ideas of its own.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    R-Type journeys into the third dimensions but a lack of control and high entry fee spoils the trip.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Don’t let the name or presentation put you off: this is an impressive piece of interactive storytelling that gets more right than most other games with 10 times its budget.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best Tower Defense action hybrids so far, with considerably more depth than the original - even if it still looks like the same game.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Wii MotionPlus delivers once more, turning the solid but flawed game into probably the best golf sim ever.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An inspired and genuinely original puzzle game that offers plenty of value for money and one of the best reason so far to get your 3DS online.
    • 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
    A great start to Codemasters' Formula 1 career, with astonishing visuals, great attention to detail and superb handling.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best Japanese role-players of the generation and a gloriously beautiful game by any standard, both visually and emotionally.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Prettier, more accessible, and more varied than ever. This is one of the best new 3D fighters of recent years, even with a horribly disappointing story mode.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Some useful improvements to the already solid current gen versions, although the loss of some game modes means it’s not the ultimate edition it could’ve been.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fascinating experiment in alternative storytelling, filled with bold new ideas and some stunning visuals and music.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may be the same game yet again but gorgeous visuals and cunning puzzles make Trine 2 a great showcase for the PlayStation 4 and its online store.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Still one of the best on-the-rails shooters ever made and vastly superior to the modern sequels, despite some minor issues with the remake.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best retro homages of recent years combines the choicest elements of older 2D games with plenty of new ideas of its own – as well as a completely free expansion pack.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A good value compilation of two of the PS2's most technically accomplished action games.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Probably the best Space Invaders update yet, with a dazzling mix of new and old gameplay, graphics and sound.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Easily Mistwalker's best game so far and another sure sign that, with a bold enough creator, Japanese role-players can be just as exciting and innovative as their Western counterparts.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Still one of the best survival horror games of the generation and one whose thick atmosphere and surreal sojourns work surprisingly well on the PS Vita.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great first chapter and despite a few minor issues easily the most authentic interpretation of the graphic adventure in the modern era.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the most exciting driving sims of the new generation, and hopefully a game that will only get better over the coming months.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The same great Lost Vikings-inspired action platforming as the first game, but now with some of the most amazing 2D graphics ever seen.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The concept may sound absurd but the experience of playing Papers, Please shines a light not on the game’s hapless victims but on the player’s own sense of decency.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A necessary reboot that fights accusations of dumbing down with an artful mix of stealth and violence.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As a prime slice of pure gaming cheese we only hope a new sequel is imminent.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A wonderfully rich celebration of one of gaming’s more forgotten shooter franchises, although it’s unfortunate its pleasures come at such a high price.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great simulation game that recalls the glory days of Theme Hospital et al. Although at times it almost feels like a psychology study of the player rather than the inmates.
