    Kojima's Fox Engine makes PES 2014 look pretty, but won't keep FIFA from crowning itself "footie of the year". The main culprits? An unhealthy amount of framedrops and once again a sore lack of licenses.

    The entire Marvel universe is contained in this LEGO-fuelled action adventure and it's a simple, but highly effective title. If you've played previous LEGO games, you'll know what to expect: a lot of fun for everyone.

    The absence of Birth by Sleep is both remarkable and disappointing, and it's definitely a shame we can't play Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Other than that, however, this is pretty much the ultimate collection for Kingdom Hearts fans, seeing as it enables them to finally follow up on the story appropriately.

    Even though the story is hard to get into, consider it worth the wait when you do. Not only does the game have different endings, all ways to get there are intertwined. It's a touching and very challenging game that keeps you guessing whether you made the right decision or not, but don't feel surprised if it turns out to be both.

    Kickbeat is quite addicting, with it's beat'm-up-with-guitar-hero-influences gameplay and its wonderful soundtrack. Watch out for certain level of frustration though, as it's rather hard to make up for earlier mistakes and the boss fights are at times terribly unclear.

    Wonderbook: Book of Spells is the first game for Sony's new Wonderbook system and therefore has to be good in order to sell the device. Fortunately, the game delivers in almost every way, aiming at young gamers and implementing augmented reality and the PlayStation Move superbly. Based on the Harry Potter universe (and co-produced by J.K. Rowling) this game will also give Potter fans a kick with its magical atmosphere.

    Business as usual... though this time Traveller's Tales has added some much needed improvements and additions to the otherwise solid formula of the LEGO games. If you're a fan of either The Hobbit or the LEGO franchise, you should definitely check this out.

    Superfrog HD means the return of an old hero and this is a comeback to remember. The game consists of old and new levels and is rendered in full-on HD. The story is a lot of fun and the same can be said of the atmosphere and the presence of a cross-buy feature. We loved that you are able to create your own levels, though it is a bit of a shame that you can't upload them to the PlayStation Network.

    Nostalgia, dear old friend... How have you been? It's a blast to see you're still as awesome as we remember, though we could have done without the glitches and disappointing backgrounds.

    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.

    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.

    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.
