    A content stuffed version of 2013's Payday 2, what Payday Crimewave Edition lacks in single-player allure and aesthetic sheen, it more than makes up for with its irresistibly compelling multiplayer heists.

    Slant Six has done a great job in bringing SOCOM to the next generation. Fans of the series will feel satisfied with the end result once the game has been patched up.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A trope-demolishing RPG that tries to be bold and creative by paying homage to 80s classic Japanese animation.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Although it has some regrettable issues, the execution of Metal Gear gameplay in an online setting makes for an enjoyable experience that is, at the very least, worth sinking a few hours into.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    There's tense, creative stealth action to be had in Thief's fun-but-flawed triumph over technical flubs, wasted narrative potential, and cringeworthy dialogue.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    While not without its flaws, Sniper Elite 3 remains a compelling, tactically-rewarding shooter that fans of the genre would do well to snap up asap.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Code: Veronica X offers a compelling dose of classic survival horror zombie-blasting, though the game's archaic controls will undoubtedly be a major turn-off for some.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    In its attempt to iterate on Killzone trademarks, Shadow Fall comes up short of greatness, but has enough tight action and expanded lore to please series enthusiasts.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Splatterhouse falls short of classic brawler status, but there's still fun to be had out of dishing out handjobs and experimenting with the range of grisly moves on offer.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    LittleBigPlanet 3 boasts more creative capabilities than its predecessors and tutorial levels for teaching the basics to patient newcomers. Adventure mode fails to innovate in the same way, relegating the most interesting additions--playable heroes OddSock, Toggle, and Swoop--to a small handful of levels.

    • 75 Critic Score
    FIFA Street's focus on one-on-one humiliation is a blast, especially if you can master the controls. There is nothing better than tricking past an opponent, and EA makes it look so good despite some rough A.I.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Yakuza: Dead Souls doesn't reinvent the zombie shooter with its simple combat scheme, but mowing down the walking dead in their hundreds and executing some neat special moves provides some frantically-paced arcade-styled thrills.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Despite some annoying issues, The Consequence is an engaging slice of DLC to complement The Evil Within's twisted game world.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Into the Nexus is a solid return to Ratchet & Clank's world, but hopefully PS4 will take the series to more creative exciting heights.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    While short, Burial at Sea - Episode One is still an enjoyable jaunt through one of gaming's most iconic locations. Bring on Episode 2.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Batman: Arkham Origins has refinements the series deserves, but core elements are missing the imagination they need right now.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Although the harsh difficulty and lack of multiplayer may offset some potential players, NovaStrike’s open areas and unique mission structure are reason enough to give it a shot.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Only trophy hunters and hardcore fans of the series will have the need to play through the original games for yet another time.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Smart As will shake out the cobwebs in your brain with a series of challenges designed to get you thinking.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Mindless, but glorious button-mashing fun, full of crazy characters and over-the-top moves.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Excellent open world zombie horror with great crafting slightly let down by unimaginative bosses and minor bugs.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Killzone Shadow Fall's Intercept expansion uses fresh ideas to raise the dramatic intensity on both ends of the win-lose spectrum, but the novelty wears thin, leaving predictable co-op fun that struggles to make a lasting impression.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Gat out of Hell applies a dose of air freshener to mask the musty smell emanating from the more traditional aspects of the Saints Row formula and delivers a fun, if overly familiar, slice of its chaos-riddled gameplay.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A bloody and entertaining experience that offers a nice break from traditional war-style first-person shooters, The Darkness II may be a bit too linear and short for some, but the action never gets old.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Dragon Ball Xenoverse is a pretty addictive and satisfying entry in the series, despite some noticeable shortcomings.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A solid shooter with relatively interesting unique features, Syndicate's co-op outshines the otherwise lackluster single-player campaign.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Push the platforming and puzzle solving to the side and you're in for an exciting and brutal ride.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Assassin's Creed Rogue is a solid, if slightly uninspired entry in a long-running franchise that will appeal mostly to hardcore fans.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    F.E.A.R. 2 is a somewhat scary blend of action and horror, and although it relies too heavily on old ideas, it still offers an enjoyable experience.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A graphic adventure game that has triple-A humor but lacks the substance to be an ever-lasting gem. Great for a single run through or to enjoy a laugh with friends, but once the laughs die down so does the game. Only lovers of the genre will keep coming back for thirds and fourths.
