    Get Smart, Dr Strangelove and Sean Connery-era Bond collide in order to inspire one martini-smooth spy escapade. [November 2014, p74]

    Starts out great, there's a bit of a lull in the middle, and finishes just as high as the superlative original. [Christmas 2014, p76]

    This 'Western-JRPG' has been faithfully ported. Lack of cross-save/buy is annoying. [September 2014, p73]

    Packed with added content and smart mechanical revisions. This PS4 version is worth revisiting, even if the original was nacho thing. [September 2014, p77]

    A strong second episode and some of Telltale's funniest work to date. [June 2015, p74]

    A somewhat flawed albeit ultimately fantastic entry to the Bat-series. Storyline really delivers, too. We can't wait to see what Warners Montreal does next. [December 2013, p76]

    Going off Faith we're in for a hell of a ride. Now more bourbon-fuelled piggies, please! [December 2013, p80]

    Dangerous, scary, and jam-packed with pressure. Alien: Isolation is an absolute horror, in all the right ways. [December 2014, p80]

    A brutal and gory game that earns both its rating and place in the franchise. [July 2014, p76]

    Yes, RCR is back, as big and gloriously cheesy-bad as ever. Everything’s been tweaked, honed and maximised. There’s more chiptunes, better this, better that, all available via PSN for under 20 bucks. Look, it’s just better, right? [January 2015, p69]

    A return to pre-Ghosts form for the series, both in terms of solo and adversarial multiplayer. Held back by a lacklustre co-op offering, but otherwise a rock solid entry. [Christmas 2014]

    This is the reboot the series needed. If you own a PS4, you own this by default. [Christmas 2013, p70]

    Rivals is a sequel that confidently overtakes 2012’s Most Wanted. No doors are blown off, but needs are very much fulfilled. . [Christmas 2013, p75]

    It’s been a long time coming, but Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 is finally forcing EA to put up a fight again. Game on. [January 2013, p80]

    LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes is a pretty attractive package, boasting a lot of game and overflowing with reverent fanservice. [Christmas 2013, p79]

    Just as delicious as we remember it, but now cut much thicker and slathered with gorgeous graphical garnish. Bon appetit. [October 2014, p74]

    This remaster retains and showcases Heavy Rain’s best assets (we’re so sorry). Some wobbles, however, have also made the jump to PS4. [June 2016, p76]

    The occasional flat gag notwithstanding, DotT’s long awaited PlayStation appearance is sublime. [June 2016, p77]

    There's really been nothing else quite like it this generation, which makes comparison difficult, and its one misstep is the fact that its only online component is a paltry ranking system. In truth, having multiplayer inside the chaotic sphere of Vanquish would have made Mikami's latest baby the prodigal son of third-person shooters. There's always next time though. [December 2010 p78]

    Polished and super addictive if you're a Tony Hawk's tragic or a leaderboard troll. [October 2014, p82]
