    Frequently savage, but ceaselessly beautiful, FOTONICA is ultimately yet another auto-runner, but only a nutter would ignore 'Canabalt meets Rez'.

    A brilliant and disturbing wilderness simulator that works almost perfectly on mobile.
    • 87 Metascore

    • 70 Critic Score
    A polished and well presented game, Super Stickman Golf 2 doesn't always get its angles right, but when it does it's an awful lot of fun.

    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A refined take on the original, Beyond Ynth brings extra knobs and bobs that take the existing formula and make it trickier, but this isn't a true step forward.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Baseball Superstars 2011 makes enough improvements on its predecessor to become the definitive version, but it doesn't offer anything substantially new.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A melancholy, surprisingly poignant and oddly hopeful physics arcade game, which burns brightly, even if its conclusion descends into sheer frustration.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 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.

    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 87 Metascore

    An unlikely classic, Disgaea is one of the most perfect expressions of freeform strategy gaming it's possible to imagine.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score

    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.

    NBA Jam is one slammin', jammin' ball game, but where's the multiplayer?

    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score

    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Pokemon Black and White doesn't mess too much with the tried and tested formula, providing an experience we know and love.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score

    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score

    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A game that's easy to pick up, easy to play, and pretty easy to get engrossed in.
