    A worthy upgrade to one of the best strategy games ever, featuring the best space battles in the business.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    The excellently revised camera system and eerie villain makes Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 one of the better scare-fests out there.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    A hard campaign (if you play on the hardest mode) and breakneck multiplayer are a good time, if often infuriating.

    I love the new snowy setting, and there are some fun moments here, but ultimately Valley of the Yetis plays it too safe.

    A great looking game, but its beauty is only skin deep.

    Starships isn’t terrible, but it isn’t the polished product you’d expect from a studio with Firaxis’ history. Comparing it to its full-scale PC competitors, like Endless Space and GalCiv is cruel, as it’s sub-par in every single regard: unbalanced, repetitive, badly explained, rather ugly, with a dreadful mobile phone UI, and buggy as hell. Even judged against Firaxis’ other mobile games, Civ: Rev and Ace Patrol, this is small and crude.

    Challenging and gorgeous, Ori is a classic platforming genre modernized and done strikingly well. Use a controller and save often.

    The imperative to cash in on Black Flag is transparent, but as it turns out a location swap works wonders for igniting the hooded pirate in you again.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    Restrictive design decisions sap the energy from a series that revels in it, and technical issues deal the killing blow.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A handful of flaws, but this fun and addictive city-builder still climbs high.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    LA Cops has some cool ideas, but the frustratingly shoddy execution works completely at odds with the experience the game is trying to create.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    A so-so start to this new series. The multiple character stuff is interesting, but weak shooting and bland environments let it down.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 63 Critic Score
    A solid, if thin puzzle game, with not quite as much to say as it thinks it has.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Beautiful and creative, but controls and design issues often drag it from challenging to frustrating.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    There’s a lot to parse, but understanding the nuances of Frozen Cortex reveals a deep strategic experience that stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Frozen.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    A fun, unconventional RPG with interesting new ideas that aren’t entirely overshadowed by its repetitive nature and stale combat.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    A refreshingly asymmetrical FPS with terrific competitive depth, but the thrill of the hunt eventually begins to wane.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    A barbarous twist on Rome II, with a handful of fixes.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Wonderful writing resting on top of infirm foundations. Almost a classic, Sunless Sea falls a few leagues short of its final destination.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Life is Strange elegantly meshes time-travelling with nostalgia-riddled teen drama, producing a sympathetic debut.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Phallic imagery and sore wrists don’t stop this from being uniquely charming. Definitely worth a few quid and a few hours of your time.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    A great game, unimpressively updated. Get the bigger, cheaper version instead.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Gravity Ghost hits the notes of big-budget platformers on a smaller scale; its story fumbles along the way, but it's short and sweet.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite a clunky story and technical performance, there's a lot of fun to be found in dashing and dodging through a zombie-filled city.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A confident remaster of a true classic. The puzzles have aged badly, but the sparkling humour and world design still shine.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    A well-made stealth game that becomes tedious before too long.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Two very similar factions dull its edge, but Grey Goo’s old-school take on strategy still makes it one of the most interesting new RTS games in years.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    A better game than XIII but with an intolerably bad story, this is a still-flawed sequel that clearly isn’t at its best on PC.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Gat Out of Hell offers all the open-world distractions of a Saints Row game, but precious little of what made the last two so remarkable.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A brilliant, brutal survival horror dripping in atmosphere. It’s from the oldest of schools, but still offers a rewarding challenge.
