    A great title which will engage those who dare to play it for more than five minutes.

    Below its apparent simplicity and nostalgic, even archaic style, lies a game that offers constant challenges.

    This is an old school roleplaying game, with a superb presentation. Sadly, the controls are not as good we would have wished, and it lacks multiplayer capabilities. Despite these flaws, it is one of the best roleplaying games in the App Store.

    This game successfully blends shoot'em up mechanics with Metroid-esque design, using cleverly the two analogue sticks, and although it is a bit short, it compensates for it with a multiplayer mode.

    A recommended game for strategy players and a noteworthy achievement updating the beloved game to current times.

    Yet another excellent title for Xbox Live Arcade, that although it is not very innovative in comparison with the original, it improves upon it in almost every aspect.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It is a good update of the classic titles, and it has been a great choice to base it on the PC versions, and not on the PS2 versions, which had less content. Although it updates the graphics well, the engine looks old, and the cinematics have not improved.

    A beautifully crafted game that brings us to a magic world that doesn't take itself too seriously. With splendid artistic design, it lacks in gameplay, which is too classic in the hack 'n' slash genre and becomes repetitive quickly.

    An interesting game in a genre which is becoming crowded recently. Although it doesn't bring anything especially new in terms of gameplay, it is a simple, yet enjoyable game, with very good graphics.

    It is the same great game we enjoyed six years ago, but visually upgraded. Its gameplay hasn't aged, and its levels are still varied and thrilling. We only miss a retail edition including this game and Code Veronica HD, just like in Japan, as the digital download can be considered pricey by many players.

    Fun and very satisfying, Four Swords Anniversary Edition focus on multiplayer, but also offers a new option, to play it solo, a fantastic addition. It is a pity that there ist not an online mode in the game, yer another chance lost by Nintendo to gear up the series.

    The game has been very good adapted to the pad controls, making it a great opportunity for console players to try the first game of the series. It doesn't match the visuals of the original, however, and doesn't add any new feature of content.

    The rebirth of the NBA Jam series has found his ideal channel of distribution, with a new version which returns to the classic style of the original arcade. It has many changes in comparison with the game of last year, and it drops some of its features, but adds others which compensates for. A very interesting option with a good price.

    This is overall the same game from last year, but with another main character. This change allows for new moves, new motivations for the main character and the addition of the camera, which changes and improves gameplay, but the content is almost the same, and it is difficult to recommend the game for those who already have the original, except for hardcore fans.

    A pleasant surprise in the downloadable games library. It mixes elements from strategy and action games, achieving a really addictive combination, with twenty levels that provide many hours of fun.

    A perfect example of how to make a remake. Treasure has achieved an update that faithfully respects the original game, but also adds enough improvements to become a really must-have game for the nostalgic gamers. Although its particular gameplay might turn off newcomer, they should give it a chance at least.

    A great Tetris version which includes new game modes that are surprising and very engaging. However, its online system has room for improvement, and there are plenty of Tetris versions in other platforms that, although not that impressive visually, are equally addictive thanks to its gameplay.

    Just like last year edition, Kinect Sports is a good option to have a good time solo and with another player, and online games can be really competitive and fun. It is also a nice fitness game which indicates to you the amount of calories you are burning.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is better than the original PSOne game, but it is a bit dissapointing not to see much new features in these twelve years. A port that brings old-school roleplaying to PSP, that could have been better, but is still a good game.

    Dungeon Defenders successfully blends strategy, rol and customization with action. A recommended game which is hard and demanding when playing solo, and very fun in cooperative.

    The game expands and improves the series, making it more approachable than ever, but without losing depth, so it offers the same fun, but improved. However, it evolves little in comparison with the previous entry, so those who enjoyed Tropico 3 won't find many new things in this fourth installment.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This adaptation of the 2008 arcade is still fresh, thanks to the mastery of Cave in the genre. Those who haven't enjoyed it in the iPhone will find a great game, that is a perfect port from the arcade, adding all its gameplay features.

    This new Mario & Sonic olympic game isn't going to surprise anyone for its new features, but the game has improved and offers improved gameplay for everyone. Although we miss an Olympic mode like in the previous game, the new London For Everyone is a great addition and provides hours of fun.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A surprising and admirable game, one of the best for Xbox Live Arcade this year. If you are looking for a frantic shoot'em up you should look at other games, but those willing to explore the space in a deep and engaging game will have a lot of fun.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If you didn't like the original game, you should flee from this second entry, as it mantains the original on-rails formula. But if you liked the first, you'll love this sequel.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great game, which is very approachable at first, but then spikes in difficulty. It has a special charm that veteran players will love and appreaciate. Its gameplay is robust, modern and full of references to previous entries, but also includes some classic elements.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great game for children that makes great use of Kinect capabilities. Kids from any age can play thanks to the absence of a controller, and the story is charming and happy, with very accesible gameplay.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very interesting title that blends succesfully third-person action with tower defense. Its humour, excellent level design and replayability make it a good choice for those looking for a different game.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It is a loyal adaptation of the original game which includes all the content it is remembered for. Although the formula might have aged, especially if compared with recent sandbox efforts made by Rockstar itself, it is a great game to have in your mobile phone. Its only flaw is in the controls, which are quite confusing at first.

    Shank 2 is a noteworthy non-stop action game. It has a reasonable length, great weapons and a fun survival mode.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fun minigame compilation with some of the most loved characters in videogames. More than fifty minigames which make an exhaustive use of all the control possibilites of the console, some of them very original. Although not all the minigames have the same quality and you will easily hate a dozen of them, it is easy to find your favorites and have a great time trying to surpass your own records. Its major flaw is the absence of a game mode that challenges us differently.

    Those veteran players that miss the times of point and click adventures shouldn't let this app escape. Its price and originality make it a must have for iPhone.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A competent game that shows VITA is able to manage shooting games as if it was a console. If you are looking for multiplayer action you will find one that works perfectly, with solid graphics, good atmosphere and plenty of possibilities. Its only flaw is the absence of any original features, and a less-than-charming story.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fun sequel, full of great ideas and changes in gameplay, that repeates the success of the first game. A simple and addictive aplication recommended for those who played the first one or newcomers who want to try something fun.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Its gameplay is simple and accesible, and genre fans will miss some more depth. But fans of the series will love its great roster of characters and the loyal representation of combats.

    It is the same formula of previous Angry Birds game, but improved and adding the gravitational forces of the planets, which makes things different enough to renovate the gameplay. As fun as ever, although a bit short in content.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A game designed to offer fun, and doesn't dissapoint. Although it lacks a multiplayer online mode which would have been great, it offers enough content to keep us engaged for hours, and has a very affordable price.

    A wonderful game for iOS. Clippox Exodus is a fun and interesting platforming game, with classic adventure elements, which invites us to disvocer a magical and special world. Its visual design is unique and will please fantasy lovers.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Hustle Kings's appeal is very limited for those looking for a billiards game, but it is an addictive game very well adapted for the PSVITA. Its single player modes may lack some depth, but its multiplayer options compensate for them.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Playing it makes us remember classics like Castlevania or even Ico, but Pandora's Tower has a strong and charming personality and it is a pleasant surprise. It will engage and entertain most players, especially those who are looking for an adventure like this one, but other players may find the game a bit repetitive.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best and most complete musou game of this generation, with a good number of characters, some of them really charming. If you like this genre, this is better than the recent Dynasty Warriors games and has a lot of possibilities.

    A game faithfull to its title, a pure pinball game at a very interesting price. Those fans of the genre will love the loyal recreation of the original machines, with great ball physics and response.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A special game, but different to its elder siblings. Those who are looking for an adaptation of the mechanics of Total War on PC will be disappointed, but this iOS concept is fun, quick and simple to understand. Maybe not what fans of the series were expecting, but still a good strategy game.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Despite not being the best game in the series, this is a complete adaptation of the title, kind of a "Game of the year" edition of the original. Its new features hardly justify an acquisition if you already have the original version, but if you don't this is a great RPG for the PSVITA.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very good game, that despite not being perfect it achieves to entertain, offers three modes of play and great gameplay. It is simple but visually attractive, and quite an addictive game.

    We like the way the comic book has been adapted to a videogame. It is faithful to the essence of Robert Kirkman work and, although it offers a different story, it will captivate us. If you don't know the comic books you will also like this game, as its gameplay is quite unique an succesfully blends adventure, action and story telling, with a very interesting choice system.

    Although a bit difficult at first, the game is quite addictive and it has a very attractive visual design, made by and for gamers. Its online mode is great and has plenty of options.

    • 80 Critic Score
    It doesn't have as many options as the original PC title, but it keeps the same essence. It is still Minecraft and the implementation of the control is great, one of the main concerns with this adaptation. It lacks some options the PC version already has included, like the RPG elements and the possibility to apply mods and skins, but it is much more friendly for novice users thanks to its tutorial and the revamped object system.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An independent game that retains it soul in the 3DS. It is a hard game with a remarkable retro flavour, and an unique and very deep gameplay mechanic thanks to its great level design. Maybe some players won't understand the graphics or won't enjoy dying so many times, but those pure videogame lovers will enjoy VVVVVV a lot.
    • 70 Metascore

    It is not the ultimate PlayStation Move, but it makes great use of its possibilities in an adventure oriented to traditional users. One of the first Move games that can appeal to hardcore players.

    DiRT Showdown offers an arcade experience that follows the path taken with Dirt 2 and Dirt 3, leaving the simulation part of the series. Those looking for something that resembles the original gameplay of the Colin McRae series should keep searching, but if you are looking for fun arcade races this is your game.
    • 83 Metascore

    • 80 Critic Score
    This is not an unoriginal game. SideQuest Studios was looking just for this, an old-school RPG, but with updated graphics. It has mixed influences and this causes some weird results, but it works despite the classic genre flaws: repetitiveness. If you like classic RPG, this game is worth every cent.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Charming, fun and full of colour, one of those titles you can play smiling and approachable by everyone. But to make the most of the game and achieve a perfect score in every trial, you will have to spend a lot of hours. For those newcomers that haven't tried a Rhythm game, it will be a pleasant surprise.

    • 80 Critic Score
    We've loved Tiny and Big: Granpa's Leftover. It is one of those charming games that lets you smiling, and its mechanics feel fresh and different, as well as its atmosphere. It is a bit short, as it lasts around 3 or 4 hours, but to pick all the collectibles and achievements, it can last for some more hours.
    • 77 Metascore

    Its gameplay is greatly adapted to the touch screen and improves the user experience on iOS. Also, retina display make the graphics shine. A great game at a very affordable price.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An entertaining, replayable and complete game with a great multiplayer mode that has proven a success. Although it is a game quite similar to other games like Angry Birds or Cut the Rope, it has enough personality to differenciate itself from them.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A special title, which make us travel in time to that golden age of adventures. It offers carefully made retro graphics, a script that captivates us and geniously designed puzzles that make the game feel contemporary, despite the visuals.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A DLC full of content and worth the 1600 Microsoft Points it costs. It is perfectly integrated into Skyrim, offers plenty of secondary missions and the main story has great moments and epic battles. A very recommended acquisition for those who enjoyed Skyrim.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A curious title, with a good character development system, adjusted control and well designed for touchable screens. An interesting proposal for roleplaying fans, that is free to play, but to enjoy it at full you'll have to go through microtransactions.

    Tony Hawk is back. Robomodo has made a great working upgrading the first two chapters of the Tony Hawk original saga, creating a game as entertaining as in 1999. Direct, no-brains skate, with great scenarios and some great songs, and classic and addictive gameplay.

    ORC: Vengeance is one of the best classic action roleplaying games in iOS to date. It has all the virtues and vices of the genre, and its five chapters offer plenty of fun. Its control systems are especially well done, and greatly adapted to a touchable experience. Maybe it is not an original game, and it lacks a multiplayer cooperative mode, but it is a greay game at a quite an affordable price.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent option for those looking for a puzzle game. Simple to play but very fun and addictive, and demanding in the latter levels. Its only flaw is that it arrives too late to Xbox Live Arcade, as we have been enjoying the game in another platforms for years, and at a cheaper price. If you haven't tried those versions, this is one of the most recommended puzzle games on Xbox 360.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A good game despite its flaws, but manages to become very fun thanks to the great possibilites Heller's powers bring. This PC version is very conservative in comparison with the console version, with minimal graphical improvements and imprecise mouse+keyboard controls. This three month delay could have been used to make the most of the PC capabilities.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's charming, well planned and its atmosphere and gameplay won't let you go until you finish it up. Once you are done with it, you won't complain about its short length –you will be happy because you've enjoyed such a experience. It is not very original, but if you're a puzzle-based adventure games fan, it's a must-have.

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive brings back all the fun and entertainment we've always gotten from this series. More action, with updated visuals and a great price. We would have liked some good new additions, since the new modes are no rival for the classic competitive one. CS: Global Offensive doesn't take the franchise a step further, but it still is Counter-Strike.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Behind its stunning visuals there's a good game full of details with a great gameplay. It's quite simple and doesn't make the most of its RPG features. Apart from this, Lili is an entertaining experience recommended for iOS users looking for an adventure game.

    A serious rival for Dance Central on Xbox 360. Crazy and fun, Just Dance 4 goes arcade, becoming a perfect game for parties with family ad/or friends. We think the tracklist could he improved, but obviously this is just an opinion. To sum up, a great game for Kinect and very, very entertaining.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fascinating game. Simple and effective, long and full of content. The game knows how to deal with the player and manages its difficulty in an excellent way. Recommended if you're looking for a new challenge, a platform that makes you think or an original puzzle game.
    • 63 Metascore

    Some people may thing it's just an adaptation, but there's much more behind it. It mixes up the racing gameplay with the creative essence of LittleBigPlanet, resulting in a good karting title with a great potential for content creation, and offering more than we expected.

    • 83 Metascore

    • 80 Critic Score
    The lack of many RPG features might be somehow confusing, but it's fun and addictive. On the top of that, it makes us think, so we really recommend it for those looking for something different to play on the 3DS.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a complete and satisfying game, that proves that it's a a MOBA is possible on consoles. We think both old fans and newcomers to the genre should give it a try.

    It brings all together comics, humor, managing and simulation, packed under an attractive look and gameplay. It's a free-to-play title, but a very interesting and addictive one.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is one of those games that, in a few years, might become a classic no one understood. If you want to make the most of it, jump into the multiplayer modes as soon as you can.

    Behind an entertaining game we find a critic message: "politics is indeed a game". If we manage to get into the dynamics of the title we'll be spending a long time playing this game and learning the secrets of this world somehow unknown to most of us.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Yes, it is quite "similar" to some other games out there. However it's almost infinite, full of possibilities and very fun. Might be hard to play on small devices, but being free we think it deserves a try.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very fresh option, which is even better taking into account there are not too many games like this in the current market. Yes, it's not perfect, but we'll find so much action, and so many spectacular battles that we'll quickly forget about those minor issues.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are little additions this time, but still it's incredibly fun and addictive. If you enjoyed the first game you'll probably love this one, since it's just a tiny step forward, but a step forward anyway.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a great game with a great offer. There's plenty of options and a very interesting 'free-to-play' concept, since you can buy new 'machines' buy always trying them before deciding. If you're looking for a realistic pinball game, this may be your choice.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The perfect game for those who grew up playing 16 bit games and watching Rambo movies. Loads of 2D action, fun and platforming in this title, that fits pretty well in the PSVita scheme.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Maybe it's not an extremely incredible closure for the trilogy, but there are plenty of options to beat every level, it's fun, and the multiplayer modes are finally as engaging as we wanted. And of course visually stunning, with a great job done both on PC and consoles.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Recommended if you don't have any other platform to enjoy the game on. It's a great action title, but the additions won't justify a second or third purchase if you already have this title.

    • 80 Critic Score
    There's a lot of care put into detail here, with both fans of Star Wars and pinball games in mind. Highly recommended if you're a fan of the genre, and a must-have if you love the Pinball FX series.
