    After the disappointing Resistance: Burning Skies and the truly abysmal Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified, the Vita finally has a top shooter, which listens to the name of Killzone: Mercenary. Guerrilla Cambridge hit it out of the park with this fantastic handheld experience. It looks and plays great, its levels are varied and challenging, and the online multiplayer is hugely entertaining. If you own a Vita, you should own this game.

    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.

    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.

    Activision manages to keep their franchise fresh to an almost abnormal degree. The best part of the series so far.

    The singleplayer is spectacular, but rather short. The online multiplayer is huge and highly addictive. No surprises there. New additions to the franchise either manage to deliver a surprisingly fun experience (Extinction) or a slightly disappointing spin on the known multiplayer formula (Squads).

    It's a bit boring in its first hour, but the second hour more than makes up for it. Your choices matter and make us yearn for the next episode. We want more.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Finally a game that puts the horror in horror game.

    One of the lesser episodes of the season, due to a lack of intense moments and a slight overload of rather dull activities. Luckily, a couple of plot twists and a superb last-minute cliffhanger keep it from becoming a chore. Though we do think Telltale should fix the framerate. Now. Immediately.

    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.

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

    A great sequel, which successfully expands the universe created in its predecessor. Visually, Skylanders Giants isn't that impressive though.

    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.

    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.

    Sadly the PS3 version of Crysis 3 is the worst version compared to the other platforms. The PS3 version is filled with framedrops, pop-ups, audio glitches and disappointing graphics. The singleplayer is fine, but it's short and the story is far from interesting. A fun shooter at best, but certainly no more than that. If you want the best experience you’re better off with the Xbox or PC version.

    The latest Naruto game doesn't surprise: it adds more characters and features, as is usually the case with this ongoing franchise. You get an interesting storyline and gameplay which is instantly recognizable. Great for the fans, but we did notice the excruciatingly long loading times, slightly obsolete graphics and an unhealthy amount of button bashing. The game's fun, but it could (and should) have been better.

    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.

    As a shooter, Spec Ops: The Line disappoints. The coversystem is a constant source of frustration and the hit detection is way off. On top of that, the multiplayer is generally uninteresting. However, as a story-drive singleplayer experience, the game shines like few have before it.

    Strider returns victorious. Great boss fights, responsive controls, interesting level design... those are only some of the elements that make this side-scroller such a success.

    Soul Sacrifice is a fantastic game for the PlayStation Vita. The title comes with great gameplay variety, even if you're required to grind a lot in order to keep going. It's a hard game, but never unfairly so, and you can be sure to spend many hours in this bleak world. Both graphics and audio are strong for a handheld title and the story is, on top of everything else, highly intriguing. You won't regret buying this.

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

    Still good. Still the exact way to go for this franchise. But is every horror game required to include a boring sewer level these days?

    While still being a great racing game, we were not too convinced by F1 2013. Yes, the career mode is properly fleshed-out (though we've seen it all before) and the classic mode is a nice addition to the franchise, though we could do without the weird paywall construction that demands players to pay extra for all the content. The visuals are also rather boring and the game's intro aims perhaps a bit too much at franchise rookies, which might annoy experienced players.

    A truly engaging story told in a unique visual style... there's really not much wrong with Valiant Hearts, even if its replay value isn't all that valiant.

    I don't like giving a 'Tales' game such a low score, but Tales of Graces F doesn't leave me much of a choice. The game takes way to long to jump into second gear, while both the story and the graphics are mediocre at best. Our advice? Skip it.

    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.

    A nice little treat to fill in the downtime between the big releases. Nothing more, nothing less.
    • 76 Metascore

    It's a well-made game, especially in co-op, but repetitive gameplay and a story that fails to intrigue keeps it from becoming something truly great. As of now, Destiny unfortunately hasn't reached its full potential yet.
