    A higher framerate and still engaging gameplay make this collection an absolute joy to play, even if some graphical errors and the absence of the first Borderlands drag it down somewhat.

    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.

    Two great and atmospheric games for a more-than-reasonable price? Not a bad deal. Not bad at all.

    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.

    A brilliant closing chapter to the second season of The Walking Dead, defined by absolutely devastating emotional choices and interesting plot twists. Let's hope the third season isn't too far away.

    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.

    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. The challenge is at times perhaps a bit too steep, but other than that this is once again a fine entry in the Skylanders franchise.

    Housemarque once more delivers an excellent game, with simple yet addictive twin-stick action for the ages. The ability to play co-op puts the icing on an already delicious cake.

    The best and most varied LEGO game in years. The minor technical hiccups are easy to forgive.

    The best F1 game in years, with loads of content and an improved career mode. A must have for every F1 fan.

    The return of DuckTales has succeeded. This remake features slick graphics and old-school gameplay, making for a great PlayStation Network title.

    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.

    Deep characters, nice pacing and irresistible humour make this episode an improvement over the previous one. The next one cannot come fast enough.

    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. The AI is questionable at times and there's some bugs to deal with, but other than that, Metro: Last Light is a strong shooter.

    A well-developed game and a nice continuation of the XCOM franchise. There are some problems though: the graphics aren't what they could (and should) be and the game gets repetitive rather fast.

    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.

    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.

    The story is interesting but a bit too long. The gameplay is both deep and accessible, but the incredible amount of options might be a bit overwhelming. The graphics are endearing, but not everyone's easily enamoured by manga. For fans of Persona or Guilty Gear only.

    The story lacks depth, but the connection between the player and his Titan is worth the journey. The multiplayer, however, is almost worth the price tag on its own.

    Finally a game that puts the horror in horror game.

    A walking simulator that's very much worth playing, Valley sports wonderful environments, intuitive gameplay and a brilliant soundtrack. To top it all of, this game's story is memorable almost to a fault.

    The PS3 version received a well-deserved high score and the same goes for the Vita edition. The game plays great, the characters are well-balanced and there's an awesome amount of content. The loading times are rather long and there's a few minor hick-ups here and there, but overall PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale remains a must-buy, even on Vita.

    A number of big, but subtle improvements put Madden NFL one step closer to perfection, even if they're not quite there yet.
