    Despite the evident technical limits, this was an entertaining game with an interesting mix of first person view and point-and-click gameplay. If you're missing the old graphical adventures you could evaluate buying it, maybe at budget price.

    AC Liberation HD lacks the production values the series used us to, and even if it's a Live Arcade release it results in a weak experience, with a badly narrated story and the complete omission of the multiplayer component, present in the original version. Ubisoft did a good HD porting job, but it's hardly an unmissable game.

    A funny and mobile-like game, capable of delivering several hours of casual - and a bit repetitive - enjoyment.

    Toby: The Secret Mine offers a pleasing visual style, but with a quite uninspired and soulless gameplay and with a game design too based on trial and error.

    Ubisoft's spin-off trilogy ends with a controversial episode. It keeps the great art style and many of the mechanics from the previous games, but its second half is filled with overly difficult, punishing and frustrating sections, something not every player will have the patience to endure. Its many contents and references to Assassin's Creed lore, however, make it a good buy for fans of the series.

    Divinity II: Ego Draconis left us with a bitter taste: while being a quite good PC game, the console porting leaves much to desire. The charm of being able to transform into a dragon and the nice plot aren't enough to save the game, undermined by a shoddy technical side and a frustrating gameplay.

    Heroes Over Europe is playable without ever becoming too boring or repetitive, but some defects undermine its gameplay and the challenge level that people desires from this kind of games. If you aren't looking for an overly simulative experience, you could consider at least renting it.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A good action game with a straight and easy gameplay, suitable for the whole family.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A hilarious physics-based game, hindered by some troublesome controls but with some very funny side modes.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A decent transition game for Bandai Namco's series, with a great character roster and interesting original scenes made by Studio Pierrot. But it still feels like a more of the same, lacking a real Revolution.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    A respectable action game, that manages to entertain from start to finish also thanks to a nice story with a touch of black humour.

    James Bond 007: Blood Stone sports a good gameplay both in the action and racing sections, but its short duration and the unsatisfying story keep it from being a true must have for every Bond fan.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A good fan service title, with several improvements over the previous game in terms of gameplay variety.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    A nice platform game with good gameplay and controls, but its design feels quite uninspired and too repetitive, failing to offer decent incentives for the player to go on.

    An honest tie-in, with nice gameplay and enjoyable both by children and parents. Buy suggested especially if you're looking for a game to play together with your kids.

    Obliteracers would have been a very good racer if not for its problematic controls, faulty physics and bad performances.

    • 70 Critic Score
    The new Star Wars games shines for its awesome graphics and refined controls, but it's not enough to overcome a boring and short story and very repetitive gameplay.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Shaun White Skateboarding bets on easy controls and some interesting and original stylistic choices, but it isn't a perfect title due to macroscopic gameplay and technical defects. Suggested only to people interested in a skateboarding game that aren't willing to deal with the more complex controls of other titles on the market.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    A mixed bag, with some unforgettable classics but many uninteresting or badly aged ones too, and without any extras to make the package more interesting.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A plain porting from PC which doesn't contain enough substance to justify the admission ticket, quickly ending up on the boring side of the spectrum.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Hunted: The Demon's Forge doesn't excel in anything in particular and is hindered by noticeabel graphical and AI problems, but it manages to offer a fair amount of fun if played in co-op. We expected much more, but if you like fantasy games you could be willing to give it a chance.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen revealed to be as the average low-budget movie tie-in. Hardcore gamers will hardly find a reason to buy it, so it's a viable buy only for Transformers' uber-fans, thanks to the many unlockable extras too.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    Cast of the Seven Godsends follows the path of classical action-platform games like Ghosts 'n Goblins, and it does it even too well, bringing with it stale mechanics that aren't so pleasant nowadays.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    If judged only by the variety of available cars and circuits, this could be one of the best racing games around. Too bad it's dragged down by a frustrating gameplay made of odd design choices and awkward driving model.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    SBK Generations will probably disappoint all the series fans due to the constant feeling of deja vĂ¹ it gives. It keeps however its strong simulative gameplay, so it's suitable for racing fans who never bought the previous games and want to race across four entire SBK seasons.

    Even if not revolutionary or innovative, Toy Soldiers: War Chest represents a decent - but technically disappointing - new chapter for Ubisoft's action/tower defense hybrid.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Risen 2 successfully manages to recreate the charming mood of pirate stories, but very bad visuals and gameplay with a too steep difficulty curve contribute to drag down its overall value.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Captain America: Super Soldier isn't a bad game, but it lacks that brightness and polish that can make the difference between an acceptable game and a good or very good one.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 63 Critic Score
    Defiance shows sparks of great potential, which stays mainly untapped due to an overall lack of mission variety and a bad allied and enemy AI. Its bright spot resides in the good co-op experience, so you could consider buying it if you're planning to play with friends.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Graced by stunning and truly next-genish graphics, Ryse: Son of Rome unluckily stumbles on too-repetitive fights: the combat system itself proved do be quite solid but it lacks variety in enemy types and weapons used. Upon this we find an overly short story balanced by a valid co-op experience. It's undoubtedly a game to try for every Xbox One owner, but one that you could be willing to wait to find at a more appropriate price.
