    Duke Nukem 3D somehow holds up as a wicked fun shooter in 2015, and this Megaton Edition is a worthwhile compilation.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    On Tour Decades brings better songs and a slightly more comprehensive Guitar Hero experience to Guitar Hero on DS. There are still issues with the comfort and practicalities of its guitar fret peripheral, but the most rousing songs are still a lot of fun to play.

    A Maximus-sized serving of blood and sandals and severed appendages. It's just a shame you can rack up a Maximus-sized bill playing it, too.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Rock Band Reloaded lays out a nice set of features and satisfying gameplay, despite fumbling Facebook integration.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid match-three puzzler saved by a recent update, Zoo Keeper DX Touch Edition would benefit greatly from a dash of innovation to help it stand out from the crowd.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Making the fullest use of the DS hardware, Spectrobes does almost everything you could want, but it's marred by niggling flaws.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Don't let the cuteness fool you: Monster Burner is a tough arcade puzzler.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With the new scavenger hunt mode included, the Vita version of Proteus has something to offer that the PC version didn't, but it's still a polarising experience.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    BattleHand is a gorgeous and finely-tuned blend of CCG and RPG which is somewhat spoiled by poor free to play implementation.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A bright and gleefully chaotic line-drawing blaster, Sky Patrol is a neat little diversion.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Simple in parts, BeamOut blossoms into an all-action romp with enough kick to make it worth playing despite its flaws.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A standard dungeon-crawling JRPG, Cthulhu Saves the World is more of a cheeky love letter than a parody, and that makes it all the more enjoyable.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tri Force Heroes can be a thrill when played with a group of three friends. But try playing it solo or with just one pal, and things might not be so fun.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Persona 2 is at its best when it deviates from the cookie cutter design of JRPGs, yet it never quite strays far or often enough from these conventions, leaving a by-the-numbers adventure with just enough innovation to keep players hooked until the closing credits.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The combat here is good fun, and it's presented well, but technical issues and no multiplayer damages its long-term appeal.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    You'll be talking about the online leaderboards in OlliOlli for weeks, and probably grumbling quietly about the imprecise controls while you do it.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Definitely a better buy than its 3DS counterpart, Hometown Story Pocket is still something of a jumble sale.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An attractive 2.5D auto-runner that doesn't offer anything new, but manages to succeed through sheer variety.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Amigo Pancho is an entertaining if slight mixture of familiar physics-puzzler elements. It's a thoroughly pleasant casual treat.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another Candy Crush game. If that's your poison you're going to find an awful lot to like here.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Slingshotting beetles at wood is more addictive than it sounds. And for free, you might as well try it for yourself.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    1-bit Ninja Remix Rush is an unrelenting and unforgiving challenge, and the perfect antidote to toothless endless runners.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tokyo Crash Mobs takes the crown as the Nintendo 3DS's weirdest game yet, with potentially dull match-three action that is rejuvenated by silliness.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Free to play veterans will put up with the shenanigans Angry Birds Transformers tries to pull in the name of a quality shooter, but those just looking for a quick burst of fun may find the wait timers and slow progress distasteful.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An entertaining arcade game inspired by classics Pong and Breakout, no amount of charm can compensate for a lack of depth and long-term appeal.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An intuitive and absorbing puzzle game with a solid central concept. It just needs to branch out a little in order to join the puzzling elite.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A very good version of a great game, the 3DS outing of Swap Force is the portable port fans have deserved for a long time
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Illusia 2 is a quirky and imperfect RPG that's worth far more than its free price tag.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A pretty and playable turn-based tactics game that needs to go rogue and break from genre conventions with new ideas and fresher gameplay.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly fun little game that's as entertaining as it is cynical, Moneygrabber! is definitely worth a look.
