    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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There is innovation here and even if it’s not always in exactly the areas you’d wish it’s enough to ensure that Call Of Duty’s status as the world’s favourite FPS is still largely deserved.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best remakes ever, but also a puzzle platformer that defies its age to offer an enjoyable challenge to gamers both young and old.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Gaming's politest protagonist returns with another generously stocked portable puzzle compendium.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best new feature has to wait till September but this is still a useful improvement on last year.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Bullet hell at its finest, with some genuine innovation for a 2D shooter and some great visuals.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A welcome return for a significant but sadly overlooked part of Capcom’s fighting game heritage, and one of the best HD updates of a 2D game ever seen.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An imaginative spin on retro 2D shooters, whose unconventional gameplay and visuals are a prime example of what makes indie gaming so exciting – despite some notable rough edges.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Ultimately this is a very different game to the offline versions but on its own terms almost as entertaining.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Business as usual with a mediocre single-player campaign and one of the best multiplayer experiences in all gaming – especially on the inarguably superior PC version.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A welcome change of style for the puzzle series, and although its influences are obvious this offers impressive value and variety for an eShop download.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The Japanese role-player grows up, with a fantastic mix of traditional gameplay and daring plot.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Downloadable content done right, with excellent value for money and a high standard of new tracks that seem even more consistent than the main game.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent conversion of the home console original, that actually seems more at home on the PS Vita than it did its original formats.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The worldless storytelling is some of the most compelling of the year and the purposefully frustrating control system an outrageously daring experiment.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A far better game than many would’ve imagined, not just in terms of its action and Lord of the Rings authenticity – but in bringing a genuinely new idea to gaming.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The PC flight sim makes a near-perfect landing on consoles, with some of WWII's most exciting combat.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    But despite all that it gets right we do wish that Guild Wars 2 had been bolder with the art style and the setting of its game world. Or that it had pushed its combat system even further and created something genuinely unique. Although the fact that it has no subscription fee is an unqualified positive that needs to be adopted as standard before free-to-play ruins everything.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It wasn't a very good game eight years ago and slightly improved graphics certainly don't improve its standing now, but if nothing else this proves the world needs a Doom 4.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best story-based games of 2011 and proof that big budgets and famous voiceovers are no match for clever design and a good script.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The only other possible complaint is the complete lack of any multiplayer, but as distracting a diversion as these options are in the home console games gunfights and online multiplayer are both way down the list of reasons of why we play an Uncharted game. Especially as Golden Abyss' story campaign lasts well over 10 hours.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The technical achievements don't come without a cost, and the game world still lacks personality, but this is still a first person shooter of impressive talents.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best story driven games of the year, and one of the prettiest, although you do sometimes wonder if it’s focusing on the most interesting aspect of its plot.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Overall Black Ops II is the most ambitious and innovative Call Of Duty for years, but it's also the most inconsistent. But that may well be the short term price for trying to do things differently.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    In many ways Absolution is as effective a franchise reboot as we've ever seen, retaining almost everything that was good about the originals and while making the game more accessible for new players. It also has most of the same problems, or at least swaps them out for new ones, but maybe that at least will convince sceptics that IO hasn't sold out.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best PixelJunk game yet and an inspired mix of Thrust style exploration and elemental puzzles.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An elegantly designed mix of puzzles and platforming that may well be the best Lost Vikings clone yet.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A clever demonstration of all the Wii U's features and, more importantly, a mini-game collection that can keep any gamer – from casual to hardcore – equally entertained.
