    The attempts to inject humour fall flat, and the presentation is still cold and clinical as a result, but this shortcoming isn't anywhere near large enough to rock the release's sturdy foundations.

    Its combat feels fluid and precise, its presentation is mostly gorgeous, and its story – while relatively pedestrian – is told with humour and panache. Unfortunately, a repetitive second half combined with some potentially profanity-provoking platforming hold it back from truly soaring.

    LEGO Marvel's Avengers assembles the building blocks of a good LEGO game adequately, delivering decent puzzles, comical cut-scenes, and some feel-good fiction for the whole family. However, the formula's definitely starting to wear thin, and it has some niggles that could do with being Iron Man-ed out.

    After its enjoyable outings on previous platforms, Zen Pinball 2 has arrived on the PS4 in good form. Assuming that you can get past the inflexible purchasing options and cut through the sometimes overwhelming digital gloss, you’ll find a flipping fun game with an addictive core at its steel-coated centre.

    The patient, cunning mindset Aragami puts you in with its strictly stealth gameplay is something we long for with more titles. With simple yet smart level design and mechanics, it proves to be a focused title with heart and soul that has learned much from its old masters. But the game does lack polish in its performance and appearance, and the AI can be irritating at times. Fortunately, the release's story, visuals, and sound design ultimately help lift it out of the darkness.

    Shantae and the Pirate's Curse has many of the trappings of a fantastic Metroidvania game, but has a few notable flaws holding it back from greatness. For people who can't get enough of the genre, the game will likely serve as an enjoyable and light-hearted diversion, but for gamers looking for a Metroid substitute on the PS4, there are better options like Axiom Verge or Guacamelee! already available on the system.

    Despite being a little overwhelming at first, Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires blossoms into an engrossing, addictive hack and slash adventure that fans won't want to miss. It's a shame that the game's bogged down by poor presentation and an unstable framerate, but along with the property's trademark combat, strategic elements add some variety to the mix, and the vast amount of customisation options and role-playing systems allow you to forge a legend that's more than worthy of the Three Kingdoms.

    More a nifty little virtual reality experience than a game but with an almost overwhelming amount of charm, GNOG is delightful. While it by no means feels like a full-sized title, that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun.

    A compelling platformer despite what its cringe-worthy art-style and occasionally low-budget production values would lead you to believe. The suit switching mechanic is a great inclusion, and it's utilised strongly throughout the game's campaign. Great pacing, satisfying combat and some decent puzzles elevate Zack Zero to a surprisingly enjoyable status, even if it's not exactly brimming with fresh ideas of its own.

    While it won't win any best-of-genre awards, Grasshopper does a lot right with Lollipop Chainsaw. Once the core combat finds its rhythm and comes into its own, Juliet's first outing is a solid take on the beat-em-up with a killer comic book aesthetic, memorable characters and genuinely funny writing. But - and this is a really big one - the unnecessarily oppressive language blows the game past the boundaries of fun schlock into distasteful territory, turning what otherwise feels like a fun and playful pop song into a GG Allin joint. If that's something you can deal with then by all means give Lollipop Chainsaw a swing.

    Tekken Revolution is more experimental than Combot, but solid execution on some admittedly controversial ideas ensure that this free-to-play fighter is worth a bash.

    PixelJunk 4am is a really ambitious package that provides some of the best implementation of the PlayStation Move controller to date. Those with a passing interest in music production will get a lot of entertainment, but it's important to note that the unrestricted design makes it more of a tool than a game. Some control niggles limit what is feasibly possible, and the quality of the samples isn't always great, but the ability to perform live over the PlayStation Network is one of the most exhilarating and innovative ideas to grace the platform in years.

    Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs is a thoroughly enjoyable romp through a haunted world. What the game lacks in plot originality, it makes up for with its interesting and unique game mechanics, as well as its wonderfully designed cast.

The new characters continue to compel, even if you'll see the closing twist coming a mile away.

    Terror, exhilaration and nausea. It's a testament to the power of VR that such a simple, straight-forward game as Windlands has the ability to makes its players feel so much. The biggest problem of course is trying to work out just what it's going to make you feel.

    Though the single-player campaign is far from a strong point of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 due to its clumsy narrative, ill-judged sections and short length, the online multiplayer still hits all of the right targets.

It might not fire on all cylinders, but as a multiplayer game, Black Ops 2 is still in the upper ranks.

    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.

    A very solid Metroidvania-esque platformer that caters to fans old and new. Everything that is loved about this series remains, while a brand new art style and a simple story put the barrier to entry very low.

    CastleStorm crops up everywhere, so chances are you’ve already played this game before. To be fair, the PlayStation VR version improves on what’s come before, by leveraging the technology to give you a better view of the battlefield before you. The game’s still a little overcomplicated for our tastes, but those who like multitasking may enjoy that aspect. And if you do, then the addictive reward loop and customisable castles will probably keep you hooked longer than you anticipate.

    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.
