    FIFA 14 on PS4 is a worthy upgrade, but by and large is the same game you probably already own. If you’re still waiting for a complete overhaul... well let’s see what EA does next year. [Christmas 2013, p.81]

    Ultimately, you'd be foolish not to buy this. It's more expressive than LittleBigPlanet but much accessible, and guaranteed to keep you playing for a long time. [July 2010 p70]

    A near-perfect fusion of old and new, video game and animated film. Nostalgiaholics will love the return visit, newcomers will get hooked on what will hopefully become a launch pad into a whole new series. [June 2016, p68]

    Chaotic, violent, and deliriously detailed. Only a handful of technical quirks and its cocky nihilism mar the experience. [Jan 2010, p.68]

    Dark Souls III is all-consuming, it’ll drive you up the wall, and the sense of accomplishment you’ll get when everything clicks and you go on to finish that final boss... well, it’s simply beyond compare [June 2016, p70]

    Needless to say, NBA 2K14 has set the bar extremely high for sports games on PS4. It plays just as well as its PS3 underling, and even if you’re not a super hardcore sports fan we’d recommend a purchase simply to use it as a visual showcase for your new PS4. It never fails to put a jaw on the floor. [Christmas 2013, p83]

    The first and last episodes remain some of Telltale’s finest work, helping anchor a dark, involving narrative. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a chain- smoking, bourbon-drinking pig. What more do you want? [January 2015, p79]
