    • 70 Critic Score
    Does little wrong, but efforts made to broaden its appeal may prove largely fruitless. [Issue#28, p.52]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A beautifully presented game with engaging platform mechanics. [Issue#31, p.52]
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Telltale has created a decent adventure full of slapstick and melodrama.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a lot of superior competition around, but there's plenty on offer here. [Issue#13, p.64]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Great environmental puzzles and a chilling soundtrack are sadly let down by a poor port with dodgy controls. [Issue#9, p.46]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fundamentally fun, but just far too broken to win TPCG kudos. [Issue#12, p.58]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A brave but ultimately flawed game that only delivers on all that was promised in very short bursts. [Issue#16, p.58]
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fun sandbox game in small doses, but it's ultimately far too limited to keep you hooked long term. [Issue#22, p.54]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A competent, entertaining single-player experience true to the franchise but marred by the shoddy port to PC. [Issue#26, p.48]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Entertaining in short doses, but severely lacking in variation. [Issue#14, p.56]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Too hardcore for casual gamers, but strategists should add two to the score. [Issue#9, p.56]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A good horror/puzzle game that's unfortunately got itself confused with "Portal." [Issue#13, p.64]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Diesel-powered, but it’s lacking the turbo injection that we want.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A great accompaniment to the Penny Arcade canon, but ultimately feels a little thin on its own in the RPG field. [Issue#9, p.54]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An enjoyable trading and strategy experience, let down by lacklustre combat. [Issue#23, p.56]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's not by any means an awful first-person shooter, just a Wolfenstein on the series' reputation. [Issue#25, p.43]
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Good for your Friday night pizza and beer social or as a budget-buy afterthought. [Issue#14, p.62]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Surprisingly solid old-fashioned skill-based fun, limited by linear level design. [Issue#24, p.57]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Hinterland boasts some neat ideas, but the execution doesn't quite come off. [Issue#15, p.69]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    As casual as a Saturday night dancefloor encounter. [Issue#23, p.49]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It has potential, but its value is only going to improve inversely with the price. [Issue#23, p.59]
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Die-hard RPG fans will appreciate the backstory, but no-one else will pay attention.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A sweeping but imperfect RTS. One for casual gamers only. [Issue#26, p.47]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's infrequently fun but brainless run-and-gun. [Issue#31, p.46]
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's fun but too fiddly, and lacks the charm of the superior original. [Issue#29, p.53]
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A charming, if not particularly exciting finale to a great little series. [Issue#24, p.56]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Close to a new Elder Scrolls, but nowhere near as realised. [Issue#25, p.51]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Only casual types will enjoy up to its conclusion. [Issue#28, p.54]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's great to have Sam back, but it hasn't whet our appetite for Serious Sam 3. [Issue#28, p.57]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Good fun until the novelty wears off. Which doesn't take that long, sadly. [Issue#30, p.56]
