    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A satisfying but not stellar action-RPG romp. [Aug 2011, p.67]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Less tactical, less scary, all nonsense. Yet it's still great fun with your mates. [Sept 2011, p.]
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Don't write this off as glorified shareware. Avadon has charm, as if it were an old gem unearthed. [Sept 2011, p.58]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Intricate detail and strategy make for an excellent value release for the serious war-gamer. [Sept 2011, p.62]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A loving celebration of bullet-hell, which relishes its intricate perfection without the distraction of a whole game's worth of content. [Sept 2011, p.63]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent free-to-play game, but a less than stellar paid experience. Definitely worth the download, but not worth your cash. [Nov 2011, p.44]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Admirable, but maybe not lovable. Requires stubborn determination on the part of the player. Then it's rewarding. [Nov 2011, p.50]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Incredible potential squandered by a focus on action and dull quest design. Still a decent romp in co-op, but it could have been so much more. [Nov 2011, p.54]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Hardcore tank combat clashes with a casual business model, ensuring only the most dedicated tread-heads will get the best experience. [Nov 2011, p.60]
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Obtuse, ancient design and infuriating difficulty hides an addictive, oddly satisfying, well-translated hack-and-slash. [Nov 2011, p.66]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A prettier but more generic experience overall. Still fun, but somewhat lacking in the skill department. [Dec 2011, p.62]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The campaign requires an interest in 40K, while the basic multiplayer modes are fun for all. [Dec 2011, p.67]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Its creative and quirky nature is let down by mechanics that don't feel strongly realised, Rock of Ages is still good for the occasional roll. [Christmas 2011, p.67]
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Blackwell Deception proves that adventure gaming is far from giving up the ghost. [Christmas 2011, p.70]
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A flawed gem that's very much worth playing. [Jan 2012, p.44]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid but unremarkable entry in a venerable franchise. [Jan 2012, p.56]
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The most detailed Pets expansion for the series. Horses, in particular, are an exciting inclusion. [Jan 2012, p.60]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A competent but confused and occasionally irritating shooter with wavering tone and unashamed intent to set up for the final installment. [March 2012, p.54]
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Elegant and gorgeous but surprisingly difficult. [March 2012, p.64]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A brilliant treatment of feudalism in terms of strategy and story, but requires major investment to overcome information overload. [May 2012, p.52]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite the puppeteer's strings getting caught, Risen 2 puts on a good show that you'll see through to the end. [June 2012, p.58]
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An interactive, aural delight which doesn't quite offer gameplay to match its busy artistry. [June 2012, p.61]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A very basic adventure game, but more than capable of planting a big dumb grin on your face for its duration. [June 2012, p.64]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly rich survival horror game that doesn't try to frighten you so much as leave you feeling slightly uneasy. [June 2012, p.65]
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A pure distillation of old-school gameplay, decanted into a laser-cut crystal goblet of 21st Century awesome. [June 2012, p.66]
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A ballsy take on the WWII shooter formula. [July 2012, p.65]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Less Hot Shots and more Hot Fuzz. [July 2012, p.66]
    • 36 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A poorly-made, unashamedly dumb game that nevertheless offers equally dumb entertainment. [July 2012, p.69]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Unique puzzle mechanics provide some intriguing conundrums, but things end up stuck in the flat dimension. [Aug 2012, p.62]
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Hardly essential, but worth it if you loved Skyrim's Daedric quests. [Sept 2012, p.52]
