    Yesterday is as dark as a summer's day and as funny as a kick in the teeth. The puzzles are poorly designed and the story barely even makes sense. Leave this one in the past.

    Disney continues the trend of crap movie games with this poorly made and cynically produced retread of a game we're all very sick of.
    • 69 Metascore

    Like the home console version of Injustice: Gods Among Us? Want to unlock some trinkets for it and don't mind trudging through a repetitive fighter with minimal skill requirements? Then, this is for you... weirdo.

    This conceptually solid music-based tunnel racer gets it all wrong in the execution, with disorientating track layouts and dull gameplay.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An occasionally bright game that's beaten into submission by difficulty spikes and shouty IAPs.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Playing it doesn't make you feel like a superhero or a supervillian, and the game makes unsatisfying use of the DS' technology. Lack of variety and an insistence on turgid fetch-and-carry missions seals this as one to avoid.

    The iOS port of Liberation Maiden is a little prettier than the 3DS original, but the same faults remain firmly in place - joined by some irritating touchscreen controls.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A decent range of great value, genuine arcade classics neutered by poorly implemented controls.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A pretty atmosphere and reliance on nostalgia don't make up for the simple gameplay, low amount of content, and buggy nature of this release.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A good idea executed poorly, Capcom Arcade offers little worthwhile gameplay.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A dull, shockingly cynical waste of time, which is all about grinding for upgrades, and almost nothing about skill or strategy.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An abstract, atmospheric exploration adventure near-ruined by a breathtakingly ill-conceived iOS port.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Lacking much of the tone that made the movies great, Ghostbusters is about as fun as being forced to slowly trudge through slime, and being overcharged for the pleasure of doing so at a faster rate.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Gloomy Hollow manages to live up to its name, but not in a good way.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    We're positive you'll want to avoid MGS Portable Ops Plus: a lacklustre single-player mode, unfriendly interface, and minimal new content make it comprehensively inferior to its predecessor.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A considerable improvement on the first DS iteration, but still not the definitive Harvest Moon.
    • 65 Metascore

    Typically, Crayola Treasure Adventures is a far better colouring-book than it is a game. There's very little range, and the mini-games won't hold your kids' attention for long, but if you're sick of losing crayons down the back of the couch this may be for you.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Repetitive action and a largely vacuous storyline do nothing to disguise the fact that DJ Rivals is essentially an advert for its Facebook-based big brother Nightclub City.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Like a dodgy pilot episode, Stargate SG1: Unleashed is badly written, poorly paced, and really quite dull.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A dull little game that makes being a deity feel decidedly average, Fury of the Gods isn't worth your time.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An uninteresting matching puzzler that's slotted into a structure big on monotony, Cradle of Rome demonstrates game concepts shouldn't be built in a day.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Bladeslinger's combat is a mess, the controls are clunky, the story is dull, and the whole thing is hobbled by monetisation. Avoid.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A dull and uninspired mess of a physics puzzler, Rabbids Big Bang is one to avoid.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Noble Nutlings tries to achieve that elusive Angry Birds-style charm and simplicity, but ends up being frustrating, expensive, and simply rather joyless.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The license promises much but Lord of the Rings: Conquest is a cheap cash-in that should be avoided. Even Grima Wormtongue would have to agree
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    About as mind-numbing as brain surgery, Lifesigns: Hospital Affairs concerns itself too much with gossip rather than gameplay. It's an utterly dull game that's better left on the operating table.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Gangstar Vegas is a surprisingly unpleasant game that's a bit too broken and a bit too hollow to recommend.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Forget the freemium fluff: Real Football 2012's big problem is that its attempt to simulate the beautiful game is left sorely wanting, with jagged and jerky matches undermining all the social slop Gameloft's slapped on top.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Lack of challenge, cluttered screens, dumbed-down controls and repetitive gameplay make Guilty Gear Dust Strikers a brawler to avoid.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A bit more entertaining than reading a textbook, only not as effective. Stick to Minna no Nihongo and Japanesepod101.
