    It’s very faithful to the movie and manages to embellish enough so as to not be a simple retelling, yet doesn’t quite cover enough ground to be anything other than a companion to the films. It’s probably the best Hobbit game you’re going to get – just don’t expect a massive deviation from the LEGO formula.

    I enjoyed my time with Eufloria HD which surprised me a little, as this isn’t a genre I’ve traditionally played. I think the touch controls make the game more accessible, which will help beginners and this is a solid RTS title that is worth checking out if you’re interested in the genre but haven’t taken the plunge yet.

    The Deer God can be a very absorbing experience. I found myself just running along the landscape exploring the world, and testing my powers on the creatures around me. It’s not a tough game to master and it isn’t long either once you have the basics in hand.

    After such a long wait, it’s a shame to see that Broken Age’s second act, while continually beautiful and charming and with much more challenging puzzles, doesn’t quite manage to live up to the promise from the end of the first.

    A back-step for the series. Not terrible by any means, Armageddon is nevertheless a huge disappointment.

    Tumble's prescence at the Move launch shouldn't be underestimated – it's a very clever game with some really impressive ideas and a main mechanic that sets the game apart from the rest of the line-up.

    By scaling back the epic-scale battle sizes and weaving in nifty mini-games, NEXT is the first title in the series that doesn't feel like a chore, an element that has plagued the franchise for years now.

    Whilst Death's entry in the Darksiders series certainly has better gameplay mechanics and a better style than War's, the story fails to make a mark and the game, for as big as it is, can soon become monotonous at points.

    Sure, it's not perfect, and you'll need to be pretty fit to get much out of it, but for £30 RRP (it's available for around £24 online) there's a solid game to enjoy here – and if you come away aching half as much as I did you can rest easy in the knowledge that you're doing yourself some good too.

    There's no mistaking that it's a good game. It looks nice, sounds great and is enjoyable to progress through, however, you can't help but shake the feeling that more could have been done.

    The first iteration of DanceStar may not reach the heights of Dance Central or Just Dance, but we're certain this new series will be on level pegging when the next wave of rhythm games come around.

    It’s flashy, technically stunning but ultimately slightly empty. Characters vary from vapid to engaging, the FBI agent a highlight but lead Ethan tends to look bored rather than desperate. If you’re looking for a decent story with minimal interactivity to occupy a wet weekend, one cut with mystery and suspense, Quantic Dream’s latest might be right up your street, but gamers looking for anything else will be left out in the rain.

    I really enjoyed the time I spent with We Are Doomed but I cannot overlook the price and length of the game.

    It’s expertly produced, oozes charisma and energy and the characterisation is sublime.

    As a standalone game, Green Day Rock Band doesn't quite offer enough content to warrant a full price release for most people. While it is fun and a very polished game, it just needs that extra spark to make it a great game like The Beatles: Rock Band.

    It's the nearest to a bike equivalent of Forza that you're going to get for now but it still feels like it needs a little more work to be a true must have. Roll on MotoGP 11/12, it could finally be what every bike fan is eager for.

    If you loved Leliana you will love this and the price will be the only thing to make you pause for consideration before hitting the 'buy' button. For anyone else it is a far from essential addition to DA:O.

    Whilst never breaking any new ground, MUD offers a good chunk of challenging content, coupled with an official licence and solid online mode. It won't convert those who have never played Motocross before, and it does have a few issues, but fans will find lots to like.

    The game is good; fans of tense, methodical dual stick shooters will probably really enjoy it. It's just a shame that the wider-reaching problems weren't addressed.

    Those who are after more than just another run-and-gun game will do well here, and the inclusion of two player co-op is the icing on the cake. Unfortunately the game is dragged down slightly by the number of glitches, which somewhat ruin the immersion.

    Recall your fondest sandbox memories: discovering The Truth, learning to fly, or climbing the central tower in Crackdown. There’s nothing like this in inFamous. Sure, there’s some nice boss battles, some great shoot-outs and, when it’s all said and done, a decent overarching story, but the moments, the single sections that must piece together to form a whole, are rarely that enjoyable and you certainly won’t be discussing most of them with friends around the watercooler.

    Being fairly new to racing on two wheels, I wasn’t sure how I would take to MotoGP, but found that it quite quickly grew on me as I became more familiar with the handling and physics of the incredibly powerful bikes, by way of the career mode and the wide selection of bikes and classes to work through. However, it’s let down by certain graphical limitations and a general lack of polish to the presentation.

    There's still good fun here, and it's exceptional value for money, but perhaps hold off until the lustre of the first game has faded a smidgen, when this retread will likely appear a little less than what it is: merely a very good – if perhaps unrequested – retake.

    Overall, 2.0 may not have the impact of the original but it’s still one of the best “toys to life” gaming experiences on the market.

    For anyone into their puzzle games it’s a well crafted, tough little title with decent presentation, neat controls and (hopefully) the prospect of downloadable treats in the future. See you on the scoreboards!

    It’s a smart, humourous post-ironic dig at everything from Zelda to Final Fantasy which never takes itself too seriously.

    A fun online experience but I can’t see this continuing to be played long into the future with so many other shooters available. The story may be a little lacklustre but if you simply treat it as a lengthy tutorial, you’ll have a great time online.

    The dialogue and voice acting is also well done, though can get repetitive. What lets the game down is the camera, which is a big problem as it can hinder progress and leave you frustrated.

    Although they may not override the series’ fundamental shortcomings, Empires’ tactical nuances and approach to player agency make it the most refined spin-off to date.
    • 66 Metascore

    A puzzling game, in every sense of the word. In that manner there are puzzles, each of which must be surmounted before you can progress, but equally its lack of any true storytelling, beyond that which you create yourself, or indeed any hand-holding to point you in the right direction almost cause too much confusion.
