    It takes a while to get going and doesn't do anything all that surprising, but other than that, Fairy Fencer F's engaging characters and fun combat system makes this a title very much worth playing.

    Somehow, we expected more than these few levels and skaters mashed together. It just doesn't suffice to match the originals' quality. There are also a lot of glitches and controls that aren't as responsive as they should be.

    Loading times and clumsy controls aside, Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders is a nice little throwback to the glory days of point & click adventures.

    EA brings more depth and detail to its fighting game, though a fierce amount of glitches and framedrops keep it from gaining a legendary status. The absence of any kind of historical mode doesn't help much either.

    A beautiful and relaxing experience that's a bit too short and a bit too technically flawed to be considered a must-play.
    • 71 Metascore

    It's still far from perfect - clumsy controls, long loading times and disappointing minigames see to that - but Sherlock Holmes' newest videogame adventure is still a lot of fun, mainly due to the interesting cases that keep taking things in unexpected directions.

    A huge open world to engage in various extreme sports in... sounds wonderful, but in reality a lack of variation and truly memorable disciplines keep it from reaching the lofty heights it aims for.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's simple, a bit too easy and - as far as the story goes - rather confusing. It is however also quite unique, varied and at times very amusing. Consider the pros and cons and make your choice.

    A unique concept, a cute style and dito visuals cannot prevent the game from growing stale after a while.

    A walking simulator that drops you into an intriguing story, set in a wonderful world and scored with beautiful music, but still a walking simulator - and one with illogical puzzles and occasionally tricky controls at that.

    Short, but fun. Now if only they'd polish the technical hiccups by the next episode, we won't be so lukewarm about it.

    As far as story and character development goes - not to mention cliffhangers and intriguing developments - Guardian of Gotham is easily the best episode of the series so far. Unfortunately, the technical issues that seem to plague every Telltale release nowadays are also present here. Shame.

    Pros: the gameplay is still awesome and enables us to use old instruments is a cool move by the developer. Cons: calibrating is way more of a challenge than it should be, and the lack of Rock Band 3 songs and online multiplayer is a downer. In this case, however, the good outweighs the bad.

    Worth playing if you liked the previous one, if only for it's deep and intriguing storyline. It's a shame, however, that you have to play - or rather: watch - the whole thing multiple times to completely understand what's going on.

    The Technomancer sports a neat idea and an intriguing setting, but ultimately falls short due to boring conversations, mediocre gameplay and disappointing graphics. This could have been so much better.

    Defiance kicks off an engaging science fiction universe along with the series of the same name. The world itself is great, but the game is rather mediocre. The action is fun thanks to a nice variety of weaponry, but repetitive missions, terrible AI and disappointing audio take away from the experience. Nevertheless, Defiance isn't the worst shooter out there - the interested shouldn't keep themselves from applying for duty.

    Great concept done too often without any significant additions or improvements when compared to the previous iteration.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It's funny and thoroughly enjoyable, but also linear and predictable. This is the weakest episode so far.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It's way too unfair, frustrating and repetitive to be truly scary, though the excellent sound design tries desperately to make up for it.

    Juliet Starling is a sexy protagonist, but she is rather difficult to control. The colors dominating the screen at all times cannot hide the fact that the graphics are extremely mediocre. The gameplay is challenging, but the checkpoint system is off. All in all, Lollipop Chainsaw is not a bad game, but it isn't a great one either.
    • 69 Metascore

    A brilliant concept is hampered by a limited amount of content, while playing online doesn't have nearly as much charm as playing on the couch with a couple of friends does.

    While Burning Skies in fact proves that the Vita is capable of handling the First Person Shooter genre, the game in itself leaves much to be desired. A weak story, an uninteresting online multiplayer and an overall lack of polish keep it from reaching the lofty heights the franchise deserves.

    F1 2014 feels like a step back when compared to the previous game in the franchise, especially since the classic mode has been left out this time around. It's still a fine racing game, but fans might want to wait for the next one.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A bit simple and short, but there's loads of potential here. Let's see what the future holds.

    A nice little experience in-between AAA games, though the repetitive nature might severely limit the fun.
    • 77 Metascore

    Not entirely a puzzle game, Chime Sharp puts a lot of emphasis on agility and adds a truly enjoyable soundtrack to the mix. Yet the puzzles are needlessly confusing at times due to the game's colour scheme and the ever-running timer cranks up the frustration.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A remarkable co-op shooter that's especially enjoyable with friends, though this version is still plagued by the problems that downgraded the PS3 edition's quality. Shame, 'cause with all downloadable content included in the package, this really isn't such a bad deal.

    A fun, if slightly generic and uninteresting adventure with decent gameplay, Earthlock: Festival of Magic is not exactly a title to remember.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    An enormous level must mean an enormous amount of things to do, right? Right? Nope.
    • 59 Metascore

    Contrast is a unique puzzle game with enjoyable gameplay in 2D and 3D. It's a shame the controls aren't very responsive, making for a rather frustrating trial & error experience. There's a lot of bugs as well, which further lowers our score. Still, Contrast might be worth checking out, if you're willing to overlook the game's lesser aspects.
