    This generation has seen a glut of puzzle platformers grace the PlayStation 4, but fortunately for those interested, Unravel is absolutely one that deserves attention.

    Simple, magical and wholly entertaining, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 lets you relive the final years of the Harry Potter fiction in a charming LEGO world. The simple pick-up-and-play approach makes this adventure completely accessible to younger ages, while still offering enough entertainment to keep the oldest of fans playing into the wee hours of the night.

    Like Bond himself, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is sharp and smart; a modern Bond game, as much about stealth and muscular take downs as gadgets and getting the girl. It doesn't always get it right: fire-fights could have been lifted from any other FPS, and level design can be on the linear side, but it's a strong outing for 007 and by far the best Bond on PS3.

    Perfect Universe is a good collection of games, and it packs so much fun that it's worth downloading – even if you only intend to boot it up when you have friends and family around. Congrats to creator Will Sykes on a really accomplished package.

    SoulCalibur II may have lost a bit of its sheen, but its timeless combat system and range of great single player content prove that this blade is still a worthy match for its more modern sparring partners.

    Eufloria HD flutters effortlessly onto the Vita.

    Platforming fans would probably be better served by the more streamlined Sly Cooper Collection, but if you've already revisited Sucker Punch's classic trilogy, and you've played Ratchet & Clank's most recent outings, then this collection is your best option for classic platforming on PS3.

    Devil's Daughter focuses more on story, with a larger plot taking over from the case work in satisfying ways. Some extended sequences of button mashing can become tiresome and the moral choice system doesn't add anything substantial, but the overall experience is great fun.

    As diverting as Frobisher Says undoubtedly is, we're not entire sure it will remain on your memory card by that point - especially if you have a 4GB or 8GB variant and are already pushed for storage space.

    Although it doesn't quite reach the heights of a surging opera, this Vita re-release is still worth singing along to if you're a fan of Japanese RPGs.

    Think of this as a motoring playset – a production line of components that you need to order and assemble for yourself. Once you get the controls where you want them, your car exactly how you like it, and your race day tactics tightened up, it delivers an exhilarating ride, but few will have the patience – or, indeed, the willpower – to reach that point, and thus it's hard to imagine this outing achieving the mainstream success of other competing motoring series.

    Shantae: Risky's Revenge is a solid game.

    Indeed, if you don't take umbrage with a bit of pigeon-on-human romance, you're likely to be taken on a riotous and remarkable romp.

    Orsinium won't win back any lapsed players with its familiar content, but for those still invested in The Elder Scrolls Online, it provides an interesting new land that's full of dangerous enemies and lengthy questlines. It's perhaps a shame that the expansion doesn't try to tweak or evolve the existing formula, but with so much to see and do, Wrothgar is still a tempting holiday destination for those with an itch for adventure.

    There was an opportunity for a truly great technical fighter in combining Street Fighter and Tekken, but it's denied in favour of a strategy-light, juggle-heavy scrapper that - like Capcom's first cross-company crossover all those years ago - never quite satisfies.

    Despite being beyond brilliant at times, Killzone: Shadow Fall misfires in many of the same areas as previous entries.

    Black Knight Sword is a memorable game – but not because of its gameplay. Its art style and incredibly creepy atmosphere elevate it above mediocrity, even though its difficulty and awkward controls are certain to frustrate. Overcoming the title's trials and tribulations makes for a satisfying experience, but don't expect your dreams to ever be the same again.

    While its setlist does underwhelm in some areas, and the online multiplayer mode is not ready yet, Rock Band 4 still feels like the music platform that Harmonix set out to make.

    It's certainly worth a look if you have an old-school itch that needs scratching, and fans of the original game will be pleased with just how faithful Pastagames has been to that decades-old formula.

    With entertaining powers and some great new weapons, the standalone expansion holds its own – but don't expect your otherworldly vacation to be anything more than a quick and familiar break.

    Its power level won't be breaking your scouter any time soon, but Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z brings Akira Toriyama's ever-popular creation to Western Vitas with a bang. While its online components are inconsistent at best, its team-based twist on the series' typically over the top action is refreshing – if unrefined – and fans will jump at the chance to assemble their favourite fighters and take on the universe's most feared warriors.

    Unfair difficulty spikes swap out the title’s pervading sense of fear for outright frustration at times, while technical issues undo the developer’s outstanding art direction. Thankfully, legendary director Shinji Mikami doesn’t disappoint in the gameplay department, forcing you to get creative with your plentiful combat options due to an unending absence of resources.

    Ubisoft Montpellier clearly knows its target audience well, and has crafted an uncomplicated, varied adventure that does not outstay its welcome, supplemented by generous alternative modes that meet or exceed the level of quality found in the main story.

    LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is quite possibly the best LEGO game yet – but it still has a smattering of old issues. Its compelling story cinematics, laugh out loud humour and perfectly balanced mix of conundrums and combat make it an absolute blast to play. However, it still suffers from the occasional AI hiccup and could do with the character abilities being refreshed.

    The return of zombies was an exciting part of the previous release, but the continuation of that and the lack of any standout maps makes Ascendance a less interesting prospect than its predecessor. That doesn't mean that it's bad, though, and fans will lap up the fresh environments.

    Like SingStar Dance before it, Everybody Dance is a huge amount of fun with a friend, and even more with 20. It's still not the complete article, and we'd expect Just Dance 3 to snatch the lead when released in December, but for now this is some of the most fun you'll have with Move.

    Lively presentation belies comatose gameplay, but its simplicity serves as a solid palette cleanser between longer gaming rallies.

    With cross-buy support and a fresh set of Trophies to obtain, this portable port is more than deserving of a place on your handheld’s memory card – just don’t expect to be blown away all over again.

    While the game treads fairly common ground, the true retro call backs, satisfying difficulty, arcade minigames, and audio comfortably set it above the sediment of what's average.
