    An interesting start of a promising series, the first episode of Life Is Strange starts out slow, but develops into something truly beautiful towards the end. If you like playing with time itself, you should definitely give this a shot.

    The story's a waste of time and the audio's lacking, but other than that, Dying Light is a blast. As far as mindless, dumb fun with a healthy dose of free running goes, you won't find much better than Dying Light.

    Your only goal in Don't Starve is to survive. You do this, primarily, by "not starving", though you'll be fending off creatures and looting the graphically unique environments as well. It's a nice survival simulator that is highly recommended to everyone looking for a nice change of pace.

    So finally we've got Minecraft on PlayStation 3 and it was well worth the wait.

    It's no Tony Hawk Pro Skater or even SKATE, but as a simple 2D skating game, it's a nice (and highly challenging) effort. You'll be addicted in no time.

    One of the original survival horror games done justice with a worthy remake. Kudos for the impressive visuals and new (optional) control scheme. If you haven't already played this, you definitely should.

    The framerate isn't great and apparently the camera wants to kill you, but otherwise this is a great send-off for the Assassin's Creed franchise on the last-gen consoles. The environments are varied and your role as a templar is interesting. Definitely recommended.

    After two action-heavy episodes, this third part focuses more on the story. Because of this, the interaction is severely limited when compared to previous entries in the franchise, though the story and characters are more than enough to keep you entertained.

    Even though EA and Visceral chose to focus more on full-out action and less on the creepy horror atmosphere which made you pause the game in tight spots just so you could breathe easily, Dead Space 3 is a worthy successor to Dead Space 2. It has a few new additions to the game like weapon crafting and cooperative play, which makes it all the more fun. Though Dead Space shouldn’t be fun, it should scare you sh.tless!

    An episode between seasons in which five characters experience the first four hundred days of the zombie apocalypse. It's a bit short and there are a couple of technical issues, but overall fans of the series will definitely enjoy this.

    Not as memorable as the Mortal Kombat reboot, but still a worthy successor. A great story complemented by a well-balanced cast of fighters and numerous interesting features - among which highly interactive environments and spectacular special moves - makes the game. Unfortunately, weak cutscenes, some boring minigames and the lack of a tag team mode keeps the game from receiving a higher score.

    Dumb AI and annoying spawn points aside, this is a nice spin-off of the Battlefield franchise, that does interesting things in both the singleplayer and the multiplayer department.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A unique and highly atmospheric game you just can't help but finish in one sitting... though that leads us towards its biggest shortcoming: it's too short and perhaps a bit too easy as well.
    • 72 Metascore

    A remake that does the original justice, keeping the gameplay traditional and challenging. Highly recommendable for both fans and newcomers who are into platform games.

    One of the best puzzle games for the PlayStation Vita, Puddle delivers on its fun premise with 49 levels of smooth and even calming gameplay.

    It's a short game and the 3D perspective is lacking at times. However, those are the only flaws in an otherwise highly enjoyable title in a well-designed Cold War setting. Recommended.

    Well, here's a nice way to change things up: a Move game that actually works brilliantly! You'll have to take the long loading times and the mediocre presentation for granted though.

    It's good to know that we can still be surprised these days. Sony's platform career is pretty much FUBAR these days, but the hedgehog with a need for speed still delivers on the racing front. It's not all that challenging, but apart from that there really isn't anything wrong with Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed.

    A longer and often interesting, though overall less memorable sequel to its remarkable predecessor.
    • 68 Metascore

    A unique concept that uses all of Sony's handheld features in a creative way. If you own a Vita and like puzzle games, you might want to consider this, even though some of the moves you need to do in order to play Metrico aren't exactly advisable to do in public.

    Need for Speed more or less returns to its roots with the cops in a leading role. Two careers - you play either a cop or a street racer - will keep you very busy and the AllDrive feature is highly enjoyable. Visually, Need for Speed: Rivals also delivers. It's a bit of a shame that the game doesn't have as many cars as one would expect from an NFS game. The title is perhaps also a bit too easy. Don't let that hold you back, though; Need for Speed: Rivals is an excellent racing game.

    An improvement upon an improvement, Revelations 2 keeps reinvigorating the Resident Evil franchise, though stale environments, generic enemies and disappointing visuals leave it firmly rooted in the "good, but not quite great" category.

    It's a bit chaotic and the visuals won't win any awards in the near future, but if you don't mind these things, Helldivers turns out to be a pretty enjoyable top-down shooter with some strategy elements thrown in for good measure.

    Futurlab does it again! Surge Deluxe is a wonderfully challenging and highly addicting - though rather short - experience that shouldn't be absent in any puzzle fan's gaming collection.

    A strategical third person shooter that fits perfectly within the bigger XCOM universe. It's a shame then that the regularly stuttering framerate and the mediocre graphics put somewhat of a damper on this otherwise impressive party.

    The new playable characters refresh the gameplay in a way that puts the series back on the map. A map it never left in the first place, we might add.

    Tiny Token Empires takes an old game and makes it its own with a brand new concept. A fun strategy title with a lot of interesting puzzle elements - good for a couple of great hours.

    Finally this tower defense game, which already appeared for the PSP and the PS3 earlier on, becomes available for the PlayStation Vita. The graphics are slightly more detailed and the touch features work fine, so if you haven't bought this game for any of the other systems yet, you should definitely give this version a try.

    This entry in the Trials franchise is as good as the other ones, with nice graphics, some interesting new features and challenging gameplay.

    We didn't get our hopes up for this one. Call of Juarez: The Cartel was terrible and we didn't expect Techland to get out of their downward spiral. They did, however. Gunslinger is repetitive and the enemy AI is an embarrassment, but the game is still a lot of fun. The story is interesting, the shoot-outs are epic and the environments quite beautiful. Not bad at all.
