    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]

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

    OlliOlli2 improves on its predecessor in nearly every way and remains and absolute blast. [May 2015, p74]

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

    Transistor is more Supergiant magic, even if it doesn't surpass its previous attempt. [July 2014, p78]

    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]

    Co-op. Solo. Whatever your angle is, Geometry Wars delivers. [January 2015, p82]

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

    Runs at 1080p, includes tweaks and extra content. Well worth the upgrade from PS3. [June 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]

    Slick looking and stupidly fast, Velocity 2X is a must-see genre convergence. [October 2014, p83]

    Still oozing with cool. Great game design (shamelessly Frankenstein’d together from other franchises) is timeless. Armageddon board. [February 2016, p77]

    The Medal of Honor series has been a bit of a shambles ever since Medal of Honor: Frontline. The quality of this contemporary reboot, then, might surprise you. The presentation is terrific. It's a far more realistic and compelling single-player campaign than either Modern Warfare 2 or Bad Company 2; we were hugely engrossed and thoroughly recommend it. [Nov. 2010, p.60]

    Final Fight may not be the longest game in the world, but it has been upscaled to HD. It’s a wonderful time capsule of fun that is worth replaying. The ‘must be online’ DRM hurts the package though. [July 2010 p76]

    We're impressed with this, and you should be too. Sports Champion is a strong first showing, and a great example of the strength of motion controls. [November 2010 p66]

    Certain moments of that descent are essential parts of horror game history, and total must-plays on PS4. [February 2016, p83]

    Even though the lashings of blood have been removed, it’s still a sexy and rock-hard title. [Dec 2009, p.79]
