    Console users have no reason to get this PC version, since its improvements are just a few visual settings. Still, it's a great hack & slash for those who missed it on PS3 or Xbox 360.

    The LEGO experience is getting way too similar across the many episodes of the franchise, even though this time the universe it borrows from is reason enough to enjoy it. Fans of The Hobbit should not miss this game.

    It's less arcade and more simulator than GRID 2, but still somewhere in between. Solid and improved, it's not a revolution, but a great choice for those looking for a racing game.

    It's hard to see why this game is unique if you don't play it. If you already know what it is, now it is bigger and better than ever; if you don't, this is the best moment to discover it.

    Blood Bowl can probably result harsh for many at first, and the real-time option is not so well balanced as the one turn-based, but even though, this is a very recommended and solid experience.

    Tom Clancy's Hawx is a very welcome game because of the current shortage of this kind of title and the good ideas it brings, which are implemented well, in a natural way, and in a few hours it would seem as if those "virtual ways" would have been part of the genre's gameplay since its birth.

    Undoubtedly the most remarkable thing of the title is its gameplay system, based in dungeons with interchangeable parts, which will make us think fast to avoid being swallowed by the ever-changing levels. This is a very accountable title in the already large Nintendo DS portfolio.

    Hawx 2 is a much more complete game than the previous one. It doesn't have the futuristic gameplay mechanics of the first one, but it has more variety with more classic gameplay, but at the same time it's much better for mission design, full of twists and new situations.

    This is the best version of No More Heroes available. Uncensored and with high definition graphics, it includes new content and the possiblity to use Move and enjoy the same experience as the original. But it loses the surprise factor, and does not make the most of PlayStation 3 capabilities.

    A good action title, fun, intense and with a simple yet interesting story, with an inusual an attractive visual design. Its violence is as exaggerated as in the comics, but results original in a videogame. Its multiplayer cooperative mode is also surprising.

    A great start for the fighting genre in PSVita and an excellent port of the original PS3 game from last November. It includes an easily forgettable touch mode, but its gameplay is great, its traditional controls are splendid and it offers lots of characters, although falls short in gameplay modes for one player.

    It only adds a few new PSVITA features, but it is a great adaptation of a very good tennis title. Its ability to engage the player is intact, and it offers lots of hours in the career mode. It also has a good multiplayer component, and although the PSVITA features are not that revolutionary, the two player mode in the same console is really original.

    It is still not as good as the genesis versions, and it doesn't is as good as the 2D stages of Sonic Generations, but it is still a very fun Sonic game. Maybe some players will consider the game a bit pricey, but it offers quite a lot of replayability.

    One of those strange games that the industry needs sometimes, different from the usual blockbuster. Although its gameplay is not innovative and the game is quite short, it is one of those charming and special games that everyone should at least try.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Although its gameplay is conservative, it achieves to be very entertaining, and above all it is a diffferent game. Its atmosphere and story are exotic and thrilling, and it is also one of the first attempts on telling a mature story in videogames.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Very few things to complain about. We miss an actual multiplayer mode, or a full Game Center compatibility, but apart from that, it's entertaining, cheap and a universal app. We really think you'll love its offer, so it is definitely worth trying.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A beautiful, intense but short surprise. A great experience anybody interested in games should buy, taking into account that its opening sequence feels way better than the rest of the gameplay, and that most players will only go through the story once, that is 4-5 hours tops.

    It's far from perfect, but it offers a great and fresh experience. If you accept it as it is it'll become and adventure worth enjoying. Absolutely recommended for those who miss the classic 3D platform games.

    Nothing new or surprising here, but it does work. It's simple and addictive, visually stunning and an universal app. We can't tell if it's going to be a new hit, but it has all the ingredients to become one.

    We get the feeling that this universe is trying to reinvent itself, bringing very original elements to its proposal, something that we appreciate taking into account the situation of the genre. There's still room for improvement, but it is indeed a very interesting start that we hope will get better with further updates.

    The mere fact of Ace Combat on PC is great news. It's not very well-adapted to the mouse and keyboard layout, but the graphic improvement is worth it. In any case, it's a great action game, whether you like the series or not.

    Still fun, but no longer fresh. COD continues to walk its path as a very solid action game focused on multiplayer, but we feel it's time for a change. Of course, sales will tell Activision whether it's time for that change or not.

    If you've played FIFA 14, there might not be a reason to get this game too, but if you haven't played the series in a while, it is good opportunity. Also, if you're looking for a World Cup game, you won't find anything better or more complete.

    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning mixes the open-ended gameplay of games like The Elder Scrolls with a hack and slash combat system. The result is good, dynamic and fun, although lacks some more depth or strategic elements, and this can result repetitive in a game of this length. It is a huge world with plenty of things to do that can keep us engaged for weeks, and its only shortcoming is the story and its characters, which lack some more charm, and the repetitive design of the quests.

    FEAR 2: Project Origin leaves us quite an uneven sensation. On one hand it has offered us truly spectacular and full of tension moments, very different from the ones which other games in the genre offer. Moreover, its carefully made atmosphere, fueled by the solid graphics engine developed by Monolith, make the immersion sensation total. The problem is that although FEAR 2 knows what makes itself stand out from the other shooters, it insists on offering quite generic moments during most of the game, and, worse indeed, it's not quite polished.
