    • 91 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best looking games ever, but also one of the least ambitious in terms of anything else.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best and worst of BioWare's excesses combine in this competent but unprogressive RPG.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite a highly emotional finale this is arguably the worst episode of the season, although the overall storytelling remains some of the strongest in gaming.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A dream come true for Beatles fans, but viewed purely as a game it's not a patch on Rock Band 2.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's one step forward and two back in a sequel that seems almost ashamed of its own unique features.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not clear what the four year wait was in aid of but despite only a few, small, new ideas this is still one of the best Tower Defense games on any format.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The difficultly curve and arcane interface and mechanics will still sadly limit the game's appeal, but CD Projekt has never given the impression that they're chasing a mainstream audience. And that's probably the attitude that is needed in order to create one of the few adult video games that doesn't feel like it was made purely for teenagers.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An ambitious and morally complex role-player, but one still limited by a poor script and half-broken game mechanics.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Easily the best downloadable extra so far and the only one to realise that Mass Effect 2's true strength is in character and melodrama, not action.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Perhaps the closest there’ll ever be to a portable version of Dark Souls, but the unreliable controls make the punishing difficulty harder to bare.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best portable real-time strategy game ever made - even if most of the credit belongs to Blizzard not Gameloft.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not just a tech demo, but a cleverly designed time waster that creates an absorbing challenge out of its apparently limited mechanics.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Less consistent than the previous games, and the Batmobile is a surprisingly unwelcome addition, but even as the worst of the Arkham titles this is still a superior superhero adventure.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    By Nintendo standards this is no classic, but by anyone else's it's a fun and accessible 2D platformer.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still the same innovative-but-flawed puzzler as on the DS, but now far cheaper and with even more attractive visuals.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Donkey Kong Country is still no classic platformer, but this reboot comes surprisingly close to rivaling modern Super Marios.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Just a mishmash of cliches with enemies that could have walked in from any other shooter and a plot that simply joins the dots from one contrived set piece to another...You've not only seen it all before you've seen it a dozen times before.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pretentious and restrictive, but also one of the most spectacular visual and aural experiences on the PS3.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As good as Diablo is ever likely to be when playing with a joypad, but even the new local co-op options are subject to necessary but debilitating compromises.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The same old Ratchet & Clank as always: unsettled, fractured, gorgeous and varied to a fault.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Probably the best Kirby game ever and one of the most visually arresting video games of the year (if it had actually been released in Europe that is).
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An impressive mix of game styles, and some of the most rewarding speed runs in recent memory, but that only increases the speed at which levels start to blur into each other.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A superb remake of two flawed but still interesting entries in the Final Fantasy canon – and certainly far better games than any of the last three.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Don't let its low price or simple visuals fool you, this is the most demonically addictive game of the year and it takes no prisoners.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a technical tour de force for the PSP, but also one sequel to many for a series that is in dire need of a reboot - or perhaps simply a rest.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    You'll either love or loathe the rote learning and rock hard difficultly in this next gen Kikstart.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The combat might never feel as clever as the visuals and narration but this is still an engrossing and distinctive action role-player.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Clever puzzles, immersive presentation, and an intriguing plot combine in one of the most ambitious and original smartphone games of the year.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As polished a product as Rockstar has ever produced but the action and storytelling are rigidly one note, and neither is sustained for long enough.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Punishingly hard for no good reason, turning what could have been a fun reaction-based platform game into a painful memory test.
