    Animal Gods is little more than a disappointing glimpse of what might have been. [Dec 2015, p.60]

    Larian Studios has taken an already brilliant game and made it better. Original Sin Enhanced Edition is borderline perfect. [Dec 2015, p.59]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An ambitious game hobbled by laborious, unsatisfying combat and a "ready-made" approach to quest design that undermines player autonomy. [Dec 2015, p.58]

    Everything in Sword Coast Legends works as intended, but that only serves to highlight that the games that inspired it are still better. [Dec 2015, p.56]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Amazingly true to the source material, with combat and action aplenty, and lots of rewards (loot!) for repeat play. Verminitide is the rat's whiskers. [Dec 2015, p.53]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A strange, sad, introspective tone poem of a game. Totally engrossing if you have the patience. [Oct 2015, p.65]

    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dex
    Dex has a lot of ideas and mechanics, but ultimately feels unfocussed as a result. [Oct 2015, p.64]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A short, sharp dose of boardgame action, that has a disarmingly sweet art style and great mechanics. [Oct 2015, p.62]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A competent take on precision platforming with creative use of stealth elements, but one that offers little reward for taking its punishment. [Oct 2015, p.60]

    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Hong Kong features a wonderful story but patience is required due to the glacial pace with which it progresses. [Oct 2015, p.56]

    It might not be the best Metal Gear Solid game ever released, but it's certainly the bravest and most interesting. [Oct 2015, p.53]

    • 80 Critic Score
    If you have the patience to redo the same level over and over again in search of perfection, OlliOlli 2 is pretty damn great. [Sept 2015, p.65]

    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Addictive and completely engrossing - you'll lose time playing Galacide. [Sept 2015, p.64]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An interesting take on a classic genre, with some great writing and variably rich worlds to explore. [Sept 2015, p.62]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid fighting core surrounded by a very bare bones, somewhat unoptimised package. [Sept 2015, p.60]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The presentation is great but the actual gameplay is firmly rooted in the early 90s. [Sept 2015, p.59]

    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A streamlined action RPG with the emphasis placed firmly on the action. [Sept 2015, p.58]

    Fast, stupid and thoroughly enjoyable - Rocket League will eat your life five minutes at a time. [Sept 2015, p.55]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fun distraction buck lacks enough depth to keep your attention for too long. [Aug 2015, p.65]

    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Ronin's turn-based combat is a breath of fresh air. A solid game in spite of its brevity. [Aug 2015, p.64]

    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An excellent introduction to the world of MOBAs for anyone put off by the learning curve or community of other games. [Aug 2015, p.63]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A great narrative experience but rather dull from a gameplay standpoint. [Aug 2015, p.62]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Not offensive enough to cause outcry, not good enough to warrant paying attention to. [Aug 2015, p.60]

    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not perfect, but it's a worthy successor to the now 20-year franchise. [Aug 2015, p.58]

    • 70 Critic Score
    Crippled by performance issues and bugs, there's an incredible game waiting to emerge if Rocksteady can remedy the Bat's woes with patches. [Aug 2015, p.55]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A bright and fun side-scroller that you can lose hours in, or just play for a few minutes - either way, it will keep you coming back. [July 2015, p.64]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Riddled with problems but charming in its obvious enthusiasm. [July 2015, p.63]

    • PC PowerPlay
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fun but unremarkable sim racing that is impacted by various issues and an overall lack of polish. [July 2015, p.58]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A puzzling, polarising first-person-platformer that fails to live up to its potential, despite holding some promise. [July 2015, p.56]
