    • 80 Critic Score
    Frequently savage, but ceaselessly beautiful, FOTONICA is ultimately yet another auto-runner, but only a nutter would ignore 'Canabalt meets Rez'.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Murasaki Baby plays on parental instincts and our natural desire to protect the weak. A skin-crawlingly tense tour of a twisted imagination.

    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The freedom and range of item management creates huge scope for personalised gameplay and strategy, and while the dawdling pace won't suit many, those able to respect the game's qualities should find the experience very rewarding.

    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score

    • 70 Critic Score
    Two different and interesting games for the price of one but whether you'll find the mechanics compelling enough to play all the way through will very much depend on your love of an old, simple and now unfashionable genre.

    Fast, furious and typically fierce, MK: Unchained is an accomplished fighter made all the more interesting by the addition of unusual play modes.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not quite polished enough to be awarded pieces of eight, nevertheless Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest will happily buckle your swashes.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While some of the seven games here suffer from irritating loading issues, much of Metal Slug Anthology emerges unscathed and victorious to offer amongst the finest shooting on PSP.

    Final Fantasy III offers a solid role-playing experience, but despite the 3D refresh, it remains a bit part in the Final Fantasy canon.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Questionable suitability for portable play aside, this is probably the best role-playing game yet for PSP.
