    It's a bit short and it doesn't look as good as its console counterpart, but other than that this is a great portable LBP game. You'll be making levels from the palm of your hand now... and you'll be surprised at how well it works.

    A fantastic game everyone should give a try. Be warned, though - you might just end up losing a big part of your social life and spend it (literally) walking around the vast continent of Pandora.

    Everything except for the audience and a lack of punishment for crashing in multiplayer has been improved, which makes F1 2012 the best Formula One game yet.

    Worth the wait, Final Fantasy XV turns out to be the anti-Duke Nukem Forever, in that it actually delivers on most - if not all - of its promises.

    Challenging, intriguing and extremely dark... Bloodborne is an experience that nobody should miss out on. A masterpiece.

    The most enjoyable near-death experience you're likely to get, though you'll suffer almost as much from the loading times than you'll do from dying over and over again.

    A fantastic little gem from a little Dutch developing studio... It's only got one level, true, but it's replay value is uncanny, and gameplay and level design form a superb tag team.

    Tekken 7 doesn't quite deliver the storyline punch fans of the franchise were promised, but purely as a 3D fighting game, you really can't do any better than this.

    If you're a fan of the previous editions, you should definitely get this. The stories and atmosphere are still great and the graphical updates really add to the experience. However, the camera's still lacking in places, which is a shame.

    An intuitive camera turns Wayward Sky, much to our surprise, into one of the most enjoyable games for PlayStation VR yet.

    Matterfall is brief, but intense; a highly memorable experience that offers outstanding visuals and great replay value.

    A great finale to a series that wasn't always as convincing as it should be, this sixth episode combines everything that made the Hitman games great and puts Agent 47 back on the map.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The co-op mode is great, giving the game a lot of replay value. The rest of Warhammer: The End Times - Vermintide is fine as well, except for the lackluster framerate.
    • 64 Metascore

    A wonderful VR adventure with truly impressive graphics and an interesting world to explore, dragged down somewhat by a minor lack of excitement.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The story isn't quite as interesting as it used to be and the game's multiplayer mode feels a bit tacked on, but don't let that stop you. Yakuza Kiwami is still very much worth your time and sincerely recommended to both fans of and newcomers to the franchise.

    Like the original, The Escapists 2 delivers both a creative and challenging videogame that will keep fans of the first game busy for a long time to come.

    It's a bit simple on the gameplay side of things, but Get Even still delivers an engaging story in an expert way, with often brilliant voice-acting and beautiful graphics. Don't let this one fly under your radar!

    About as addicting as Bomberman, Towerfall Ascension completely caught us by surprise with its retro look, it's well-implemented co-op mode and downright fantastic platforming. Get this.

    The Ratchet & Clank games still hold up today. The platform series is a great Vita experience, with beautiful graphics and the characteristic gameplay we've come to know and love. It's a shame the cut-scenes look a little outdated and we don't understand why the developer chose to leave out the multiplayer mode from Ratchet & Clank 3, but otherwise we're very pleased with this handheld collection.

    Being Batman, the world's greatest detective, never gets old, even if the actual experience won't last all that long.

    Don't let the slow start of the episode fool you; this is quite a ride, ending on a spectacular cliffhanger that will leave any fan desperate for more.

    A lot of people have complained about the look of the new Devil May Cry and frankly, they should just play the game instead. Ninja Theory has changed things up quite a bit, but they haven't touched the core of the franchise. DmC is an excellent hack & slash game which has a few problems, but then again: nobody's perfect.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    DOOM is an awesome return to form, not just for the franchise but also for the old school shooter genre. A triumph, held back only by lengthy loading times and a slight lack of depth in the single-player campaign. Not that these nitpicks matter when you're shooting demons left and right with a big grin on your face.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A joy to play, as ever - though we could've done without the clear-as-day influence of the PS3.
    • 81 Metascore

    Ten times the colours, ten times the content... if you don't mind a bit of repetitiveness every now and then, you'll love this sequel.

    Not exactly the dream sequel fans of NieR were expecting, but still a highly enjoyable experience, thanks in part to the intriguing stories, the fluent gameplay and a wonderful soundtrack.

    Finally, Tropico makes its debut on a PlayStation console and it's a great first appearance. Tropico 5 is a wonderful city builder, the mechanics of which are well-adapted to the PlayStation 4. Get this if you're a genre fan.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Three great games, but that was already the case when these games came out in the PlayStation 2 era. If you haven't played them, buy this. If you have… well, I guess that depends on how much of a fan you are.

    LittleBigPlanet Karting is the first racer in the LBP universe and it's immediately a success. The game is varied, filled with fun races and other gameplay aspects. The level editor works great, increasing the score even more. The only negative point we could find was the lack of challenge in the single-player, which is fortunately the only negative point.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The graphics aren't state-of-the-art and the story isn't that well-told. That said, spectacular combat and a wonderful environment to wander around in save Dragon's Dogma from the purgatory of mediocrity.

    Everbody's Golf does its title justice and delivers a near perfect virtual golf experience accessible to everyone looking to shoot some holes.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Well, this is The Walking Dead alright and as a game it's a lot better than Telltales' Jurassic Park. It's not perfect, though, as the lip-synch is often a bit off and the overall length of the game leaves you wanting more. A lot more.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Persona 4 Arena was a fine spin-off and this new iteration continues the trend with more depth and a longer story mode, that, however, lacks a bit of gameplay action. Newcomers are strongly advised to start with the previous one, by the way.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Tense, engaging and at times truly shocking... if you love the franchise, you'll definitely enjoy this pilot episode. What's even better than the episode in itself, is the potential for some genuinely brilliant storytelling in the future of the series. Get this.

    A great party racegame! You'll be crashing and burning for a very long time after buying DiRT Showdown and we assure you that you won't regret spending your hard-earned money on it.

    A great online multiplayer experience and a rather uninteresting singleplayer campaign. No surprises here.

    Whether you choose to help the citizens of Seattle or fry their brains, you'll probably be having a good time. The first time around, at least. Oh, and did we mention the graphics are absolutely stunning? Well, there you go.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The camera's a bit awkward and playing in co-op severely reduces the challenge, but other than that this is one fine action/platform game with a couple of unique bossfights and truly imaginative puzzles as the unmistakable highlights.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A great collection, though the lack of any real gameplay in Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded is a weak point.
    • 77 Metascore

    More of the same, but since "the same" is still a lot of fun, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel remains warmly recommended.
    • 79 Metascore

    Forget about Dead Space 3, Resident Evil 6 or even Outlast... Alien: Isolation is the real deal and will definitely scare the living daylights out of you.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's a bit cliché and at times rather buggy, but those are only minor problems in an otherwise very enjoyable game. London makes for a great setting and genuine improvements in gameplay make Syndicate another step forward in the franchise.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Super Rude Bear Resurrection knows exactly what a good platformer needs: great level design, a dynamically spiking difficulty curve and a lovable, visual style. We could've done with a little less trial & error, though.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    We didn't like going out of the animus, the mission structure gets repetitive real fast and the framerate isn't always as solid as it should be. Nevertheless, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag offers a great and varied experience, mostly thanks to the expertly designed world you get to explore.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A few graphical glitches can't spoil the fun in this great downloadable action game. It isn't cheap, but you won't regret any money you spend on it.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    As good as the previous ones, especially story-wise. I can't help feeling disappointed by the amount of glitches and badly executed lip syncs though.
    • 84 Metascore

    A great race game, which definitely puts EA's Need For Speed franchise back on the map.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The progression system is a bit off, but if you're willing to overlook that, you'll find the same blend of fun content and trial & error gameplay that the Trackmania series is known for.

    • 85 Critic Score
    The best Tekken game ever made? Hard to say, really. But it might be even harder to come up with complaints that actually matter. Visually and gameplay-wise, this is a complete package fans and other interested parties should by all means get their hands on.

    Doom 3 is an old game and it definitely shows its age. If you, however, are willing to look past that obvious defect, this game will prove that it is still just as nerve-wracking as it ever was.

    • 85 Critic Score
    This is the way we like our HD remakes - a fun, nostalgic dive into the past. We're willing to overlook the lack of online options, although we don't understand why the second game wasn't included in the collection.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Still as much of a tactical joy as you remember. Very much worth picking up (again).
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A great soccer game, even though keepers still insist on doing strange things and your fellow players obviously don't know what offside means. On top of that, the graphics are mediocre at best and PES still hasn't gotten all the proper licensing. These complaints don't do much in comparison with the fun you'll have playing this game, though.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    XCOM: Enemy within significantly expands on XCOM: Enemy Unknown and because of that, die hard fans or newcomers are advised to get it. It's a shame the developers didn't do anything about the bugs though, since they're still very present.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The sequel continues the admirable level of quality that was delivered by the original, with improved AI to boot. Great game.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Well, there's definitely some progress. The game is more beautiful than its predecessor, online play has been improved and it's finally possible to create your own deck. It's not all silver and gold, though. There's a lot of screentearing and for reasons unknown it's impossible to trade cards with your friends. If you're no grouch, however, you should be able to look over this and enjoy this game.
    • 84 Metascore

    Subtle improvements and a batch of new features keep Blazblue on track, though its graphics are in dire need of an upgrade.
    • 82 Metascore

    Technically, this isn't a marvel, though as a closing chapter to this wonderful series, it delivers where it counts.
    • 75 Metascore

    Surviving the journey from PC to console by means of some truly ingenious controls, Divinity: Original Sin impresses on almost every level. Genre fans shouldn't hesitate.
    • 81 Metascore

    Hitman is back and we couldn't be happier. The lack of a competitive mutiplayer is regrettable because of the high gameplay potential, but overall this is a great continuation of 2006's Blood Money with improvements all over the board. Welcome back, Agent 47. We sure as hell missed you.

    If not for some graphical and framerate issues, Batman: Return to Arkham would be one of the best remasters out there.

    Fall of Cybertron surpasses its predecessor in almost every way and is therefore the best Transformers game on the market. It's got its fair share of problems though: disappointingly bad textures, online connection problems and some annoying glitches and freezes somewhat spoil the fun.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Well, this reissue is a definite improvement when compared to its original version. The definite edition of DmC looks better, adds a welcome lock-on function and kicks up the frame rate to 60 frames per second, which takes this action game to a whole other level. Some rough textures and annoying platform sections keep it from reaching the absolute top, though.

    • 82 Metascore

    The third episode makes up for the dull second with eventful additions to each of the four major stories. Though some truly exciting things happen to every main character, it's the promise of spectacular things to come that keeps the series upright.

    Lone Survivor might just be the purest survival horror game of this generation, leaving the player to desperately fend for himself, without offering him any clear information whatsoever on what's going on. One-man developer Jasper Byrne manages to use what are essentially GameBoy Color graphics to his advantage, suggesting horrors rather than flatout confronting the player with them, and expertly using creepy sound design to strengthen the experience. The map mechanics suck and it's a shame the game doesn't last very long, but horror fans can't go wrong with Lone Survivor.

    Let's face it, if you're not into stories, you shouldn't buy Beyond: Two Souls. After all, player input is kept to a bare minimum and even then it manages to take you out of the experience, as it needlessly slows down the action. However, those who love a good and well-told story can't go wrong with Beyond: Two Souls. Both Ellen Page's and Willem Dafoe's acting is highly convincing and the visuals are appropriately jaw-dropping. Co-op is also a feature very much worth exploring, as it succeeds in turning this "interactive movie" into an effective two-player experience.

    God of War Ascension doesn't top God of War III, but that doesn't mean it's not a good game. It is; with a great single-player adventure and an interesting multiplayer mode with a lot of potential. It takes some getting used to, but if you manage to do that, you'll enjoy yourself for many hours to come.

    There's an intolerable amount of framedrops on the Vita and the thin line between challenge and frustration is crossed more than once, but these are minor flaws when compared to what Spelunky gets right. This addictive platform game has finally found its way to the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita, and that is definitely a cause for celebration.

    Everyone says PlayStation All-Stars does nothing but cheaply rip off Super Smash Brothers, but there's more to it than that. A lot more, in fact. This is in every way a solid fighter, with a large and well-balanced (though not yet as good as it could have been) cast, many colourful stages and deep, rewarding gameplay elements. Above all it's fun - if not at times a little chaotic.

    It's not spectacularly innovating and the graphics are in dire need of improvement, but other than that NBK 2K14 manages to tweak its gameplay enough to justify the new installment in the franchise. We could do without the clumsy menus and stupid dialogue, though.

    • 85 Critic Score
    It still isn't that original, it still isn't that deep and some bugs and glitches kept spoiling the fun. Still, Darksiders II is a massive adventure with an epic story and gigantic, interesting worlds to explore. An improvement on the first one and overall a game nobody should pass on.

    Developer Vicarious Visions doesn't change the winning team, but adds a rather interesting swap mechanic to the already interesting gameplay elements from its predecessors.

    Sam Fisher returns to the PlayStation 3 and we are inclined to celebrate his comeback. The story and its characters are interesting, the missions are varied, and the amount of playing styles available to the player is truly satisfying. The multiplayer is an added bonus. Visually, however, the game isn't that strong, with a couple of technical flaws spoiling the fun. None of them are gamebreaking though, so you should just get over it and buy the game if you're interested.

    Unfortunately, the game's most important addition is also its greatest weakness: the first couple of hours in the Batmobile are exhilarating, but the constant emphasis on this clunky vehicle keeps Arkham Knight from reaching its predecessors' heights. Nevertheless, this is one hell of a Batman simuator that's very worth experiencing.

    For the first time, the Metro franchise arrives at the PS3. It's a cruel and often terrifying experience, with an intriguing story, atmospheric visuals and great gameplay.

    This game is quite unique, thanks to its visual style, overall atmosphere and interesting storyline. The gameplay is traditional, however, though Ubisoft managed to keep it intriguing by implementing a captivating combat system. This one comes highly recommended for RPG fans.

    • 85 Critic Score
    The same game as the original, but with all DLC included and a new area to explore. A bit weird, but the extra content is worth the money. There aren't exactly any improvements though, so if you had any complaints about the original, they will still be present here.
