    • 70 Critic Score
    Just like the marines battling it out against hell's minions, it feels like we've been here before. It's still an intense and entertaing experience - it just isn't a new one.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A competent, though not a convincing enough re-release without online multiplayer and a wider slate of control options to bring a new generation into the flock of Doom faithful.

    • 70 Critic Score
    2XL ATV Offroad dresses up controls quirks and a shallow Career mode with phenomenal graphics.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's not quite enough new material to give it a full recommendation, but the original formula is still great. If you want more zombie slaying, look no further.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An amusing, bite-sized piece of gaming that pairs classic arcade action with unpretentious style.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fun and familiar - Brothers in Arms 2 opts for variety over freshness and largely succeeds in spite of its many minor shortcomings.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite lacking hardcore depth and multiplayer modes, Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior HD looks great and plays well too.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Part timing, part luck, Canabalt is the kind of quick-fix that has the potential to become a phenomenon, the game's free-running fix giving players a new kind of high score to chase.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An amusing game of evasion, The Incident holds little in the way of lasting appeal.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite a handful of issues, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is an enthralling adventure with great action and killer cooperative multiplayer - just stay away from the unstable iPad version.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    You have to dig through a layer of questionable controls, but at the core of Miner Disturbance lies an ingenious adventure-puzzler.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An affectionate ode to Pac-Man, Naughty Bear is worth a play for the hilariously inventive deaths that dominate its gameplay.
    • 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
    A faithful replication of a mentally taxing strategy board game, Neuroshima Hex is limited by its small selection of gameplay modes but offers an engrossing and complex multiplayer experience.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A bright and quirky physics-based puzzler, No, Human suffers from a lack of value and presentation issues.
    • 77 Metascore

    Unpolished controls and technical snags take the wind out of pretty top-down platformer Ozone HD.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although this port does little to spruce up a decade-old adventure, enough quality shines through to make Riven a worthwhile play.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Legendary Wars comes close to equalling the zany appeal of Plants vs Zombies, but the micro-management required to succeed is enough to put off all but the most dedicated of fantasy war gamers.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While much of its perpetual running gameplay has been seen before, Grim Joggers does enough to push it in front of the also-rans with its crowd-control twist.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Bursting with pixel charm and offering up a vast, detailed world to explore, Frogatto boasts all the hallmarks of a truly classic 2D platform adventure without the spot-on controls.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Repetitive levels and odd control choices threaten to shut Revolt down, but solid action and an attractive presentation keep it powered up.

    Despite repetitive missions and performance issues, Xenome, Episode 1 has the right stuff when it comes to role-playing.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Close enough to other line-drawing titles to feel familiar, but fresh enough not to turn stale, Zombie Escape is worthy of your time.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Cooked up using elements from the most noted games in the genre, Zombie Infection is a predictable, yet filling survival-horror action romp.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Zenonia 2 is a fun, yet far too faithful sequel that offers only cursory changes and not the substantive improvements necessary for it to be a great follow up.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fastar! is a clever distillation of the role-playing form, even if it lacks the variety or dynamism of other quick-hit adventures.
