    • 70 Critic Score
    Fast and frenetic role-playing that fixes some of its predecessor's largest flaws, despite the continued reliance on rote fetch quests and cheesy writing.

    A thoughtful and well-put-together puzzle game, Reiner Knizia's City of Secrets Pipes is an enjoyable, deep, time-consuming brainbender.
    • 77 Metascore

    Touchgrind BMX is fast, addictive and enjoyable to play. Sadly, a crushing lack of tricks and some serious control and camera frustrations hold it back from being an essential ride.
    • 65 Metascore

    There's fun to be had with its sharp-edged bike blasting, but SXPD is a little on the small side.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Its free to play system might but some off, but Madden NFL Mobile is a step up from last year's effort.

    • 70 Critic Score
    While its roots are firmly planted in match-3 puzzles, Rescue Quest is still different enough to feel like something new.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An engrossing, if repetitive, tap-to-jump title that offers a wide variety of gameplay and challenge in a simple package.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While the revised touch controls offer a mixed bag of accessibility and annoyances, Final Fantasy still delivers simple, solid role-playing.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Octodad: Dadliest Catch is a cheeky little affair with goofiness and laughter to spare. Just hope that there’s an early patch to shine up those minor imperfections.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A movie tie-in that actually does some justice to its fun source material, this match-three puzzler is a retro delight.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This compelling and appealingly hard-edged strategy is a few tactical adjustments away from achieving its goals. Worth a look.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A compelling and atmospheric slice of light strategy, undermined by its monetisation model.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Puzzle Coaster is an enjoyable game with which to wind down, though the controls are more likely to stump you than the puzzles.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The melodramatic use of weapons and curious lack of online multiplayer can't stop Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit from offering cheap arcade racing thrills.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mutant Mudds is a great slice of retro-styled platforming for the 3DS, which just falls at the last few hurdles.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A promising concept that falls short of the finish line, sabotaged by tilt-screen tablet controls and lack of multiplayer functionality.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it isn't a bad game by any means, Slice the Ice doesn't do enough to make itself stand out in a ridiculously crowded market.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A clever and bright arcade shooter that's got enough going for it that you'll chase your scores for a good long while.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The single-player game is enjoyable but disappointingly short-lived. Thankfully, the impressive multiplayer options improve things considerably.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A bit broken in places, Gluey still offers up some enjoyable, if not revolutionary, puzzling fun.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An intriguing look back at what the JRPG used to be, Dragon Quest II has enough going for it to make it a little more than a curio.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Following a slow start, Take It Easy develops into a surprisingly involving and multi-faceted puzzle game.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    New Puzzle Bobble adds just enough gameplay gimmicks to freshen up its well-worn bubble-matching gameplay.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Slow to get going, Cavemania nevertheless brings a new level of tactical skill to match-three gaming.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A brainier episode than Metamorphosis, Ones & Zeroes might not be thrilling, but it asks some interesting questions all the same.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Where's My Geek? is a fun, funny, and more than a little wacky 'hidden object' game that does the rest of the series proud.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A stylishly well executed tap-based brawler with a rhythmic heart
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A jumble of gore and old ideas, Hellraid: The Escape is entertaining when it's at its best, and enjoyable when it's not.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Diner Dash hits breakneck speeds and is sure to tempt in fans of the series once more, but there's little new to get excited about here.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not perfect, but that's sort of the point. Goat Simulator is one-note and ridiculous, but it does it very well.
