    The concept is simple, but it works well enough to keep us playing for many hours. The in-app purchases are avoidable, and with dedication we can progress without worrying too much about them.

    Top Darts is one of those games which usually goes unnoticed between high-budget, Move-compatible games, but its precision, its many options and its presentations should be considerated by those who are looking for a game which shows what is the new control able to do.

    Castle in the Darkness is a metroidvania game that deserves more recognition. If you ever enjoyed this genre back on the 8-bit machines, you shouldn't miss this one.

    Even though it occasionally gets quite simple, it is absorbing and really challenging on the hardest difficulties.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Although there are things to be improved in the online game of Marvel vs Capcom 2, this title is as fun as it was in 2000, and that's quite a thing to say about a videogame.

    Forget about fast-paced shooters and frenetic action. This one relies on a team-based mechanic, where every move should be planned. There's room for improvement when it comes to the visuals and the bullet-detection system, but still it is a very recommended choice.

    It is difficult to evaluate Costume Quest, as it is to put it into a concrete genre. It is a simple, very short and almost no replayable game, but also one of those whose charm, variety ans style make you stick to the console for hours.

    Pirate Warriors 2 goes a step beyond in its search for action, and it manages to get it right. Unless musou games put you off, this is a great choice for One Piece fans.

    It's very original and fun, even though sometimes might be boring and its free-to-play nature will not please everyone. However, we think it deserves a serious try.

    If you like 2D action and platforming games, and if you have friends to play with, this is a must have. It is not perfect, but we like its retro feeling and the content and options it adds to make it work nowadays.

    If you have some friends to play a shooter with, this is a great choice. It's not perfect, but is bigger and better than the previous one, which means even more fun.

    • 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.

    Mytran Wars doesn't stand out for its originality, but with no doubt it's a remarkable strategy game with an interesting number of gameplay options and a more than good technical part. Moreover, event the most demanding strategy fan will like its huge extension, tight difficulty and juicy multiplayer mode.
    • 75 Metascore

    It doesn't have a surprising story nor innovates anything in gameplay, but the development team well done work achieves that more than 80 hours of a very satisfying experience.

    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.

    This is yet another good installment of the series after it found the right way years ago. It has not many new features and seems to be focused in improving some things, but it lacks some freshness, despite the new WWE Universe mode.

    We think Wanted will divide the public, with probably more detractors than praisers. Genre fans, used to mediocre games without souls, should overlook Wanted's flaws and see the braveness and effort in this not so ostentatious production.

    This is a great board game, deep and fun, that not only will be enjoyed by fans of the franchise it is based on, but also by anyone interested in this kind of experience. Actually, we wouldn't be surprised if after playing the virtual version you go and buy the physical one.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    • 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.
    • 72 Metascore

    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.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is a game very quiet and slow-paced, to be enjoyed with plenty of time and no hurries, savouring its story and characters. If you detest book you should avoid it, but if you love literature and videogame and doesn't matter both things to be merged in a single product, this is your game.

    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.

    We would have liked to have seen a further evolution of the gameplay or the narrative, but still, inFamous: Second Son is much more than just outstanding visuals and becomes a very enjoyable experience and an example of what next-gen consoles can offer.

    Tom Clancy's Endwar is a very good strategy game, a experience that no genre fan should let escape, because the sensation of having under our command such a number of troops who obey our orders is just fantastic.

    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.

    Tales of Vesperia is a solid role-playing game, built upon the canonical bases of the japanese genre. The characters go through an epic story, with moments of drama and also some bits of humor. Its intense combat mantains the tradition of the series, and it also has a good technical part.

    In Star Ocean: The Last Hope its gameplay excels, with intense and satisfying combat which give the game a good pace. But its story is really shallow, and lacks something in character and situations building, although it keeps the gamer interested enough to keep playing.
