    Pokemon Sun and Moon is another winning adventure with good ideas and oodles of charm, but a focus on making everything easier just robs the game of any real challenge or tension.

    Witty, varied, challenging and gorgeous to look at, Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage is one of the finest physics-based puzzlers on iOS and an outstanding start for Rovio Stars.

    Utterly phenomenal. Tearaway is inventive and joyous in equal measures, making for one of the best adventures this year, on any platform.

    A supreme stealth action game that isn't just true to the MGS canon but offers exciting new elements for both singleplayer sneakers and multiplayer junkies.

    • 80 Critic Score
    A melancholy, surprisingly poignant and oddly hopeful physics arcade game, which burns brightly, even if its conclusion descends into sheer frustration.

    • 80 Critic Score
    A satisfying blast of colourful, creative on-rails shooting that's only slightly let down by an occasional lack of responsiveness in its controls.

    While it's not quite as devastatingly original as Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks is still an utterly essential purchase and comfortably ranks as the undisputed DS event of the year.

    A beautiful if flawed point-and-click adventure game with a look and feel all of its own.

    An unlikely classic, Disgaea is one of the most perfect expressions of freeform strategy gaming it's possible to imagine.

    Brimming with content, eminently replayable, and much improved over previous iterations, Sid Meier's Pirates! is a must-have for any self-respecting iPad buccaneer.

    The best Pokemon game so far. Combines the addictive elements of the originals with the latest graphics to great effect. Just don't mention the Pokewalker.

    Pokemon Sun and Moon is another winning adventure with good ideas and oodles of charm, but a focus on making everything easier just robs the game of any real challenge or tension.

    An accessible but massive roguelike that will suck you in and then murder you. But in a good way.
    • 87 Metascore

    A game that's easy to pick up, easy to play, and pretty easy to get engrossed in.

    The best Adult Swim title to date, and a squeak away from classic status.

    A game of immense quality, Sentinel 3: Homeworld represents the best of the tower defence genre with both depth and immediate action.

    For those who never played the original Velocity, then Ultra is a must. But if you have already had your fun with the Minis version, you may want to carefully consider how much leaderboards and Trophies will add for you.

    An excellent multiplayer portion makes up for an occasionally flimsy single player campaign to make Gasketball a highly recommended purchase.

    Creative new modes and a great set of features don't just keep Infinity Field from being a copycat, they make it a superior twin-stick shooter.
