    We can't assure it is a turning point in the series, but it manages to make fights fun and it's no doubt an outstanding game.

    Red Steel 2 is a great game that offers an efficient combination of sword and gun and won't disappoint those who try it.

    The surprise Far Cry 3 is gone, but this time is bigger and better, and we still loved playing it. If you like first-person action games, you shouldn't miss this one.

    Beneath its erotic appearance there's solid gameplay that keeps improving. New challengers (including three from Virtua Fighter), new fighting styles, bigger and better stages, Tag mode, a very complete multiplayer and a great story mode. All those features are certainly enough to bolster the notion that DOA 5 is one of the best fighting games in a long while.

    One of the best IPs Nintendo has done recently. It's fresh, clever and challenging and the only thing we could ask for is a "Rotblox" where we can 'rotate' the pieces!

    The best choice if you want to enjoy this adventure. It's the very same game, but making the most of it. Adapted to the DualShock 3 and PlayStation Move controllers, Okami is still a game we recommend you to (re)discover.

    The additions we've seen in this episode are worth the console upgrade, making it more entertaining and fun than ever. The improved control and the evolved AI makes it closer to the driving simulator you may be looking for.

    Empire Total War is outstanding in all its features, one of those games which are enjoyable from beginning to end. You could hardly stop playing for weeks. It is a cliche to say it, but Creative Assembly have truly surpassed themselves; Empire: Total Wars is one of those masterpieces no videogame fan should let escape.

    The base we already had gets an incredibly deep layer of politics, government and religion that keeps evolving the experience.

    Although it has lost part of the impact of the previous game, Guerrilla Games has again achieved a great first-person shooter, greatly improving the campaign mode and emphasizing its personality.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    A great reborn of the series. Addictive, dynamic, challenging, deep and fun. It's a surprise for the fans of strategy games, whose only -very slight- issues are the story and the multiplayer. Not that they're bad, it's just they could be improved, but we quickly forget about it when playing. Way better than we expected.

    Yes, it's more Monster Hunter, but that is great news. Epic battles, the same old fun and lots of content make it another great episode in the series.

    This isn't just a visual upgrade, but a deeper remastering that also improves its gameplay. If you haven't played it yet, choosing the Scholar of the First Sin version is worth it.

    We feel like this is next-gen gameplay. Titanfall proves that there's still room for innovation in shooting games, and we've had a blast playing it. It could have had next-gen visuals, though, and then it would have been the bomb.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    This PC version is just what we expected. The same product we have seen in consoles, but with polished graphics to make the most of the power of the platform. It is not a game for newcomers to the series, as its story follows those of the previous game, but followers of Assassin's Creed will love it.
    • 82 Metascore

    A perfect example of how to bring a series born in home console to portable gaming without making any sacrifice in visuals or in gameplay.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    This is the best version so far, but also the less innovative. It feels like EA Sports is absolutely focused on next gen consoles, so there are few additions here. However, it is as fun as always, and the best football simulator this year for current consoles.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    The best version so far. It solves many issues and keeps some others, and, even though it doesn't make the most of current PCs, we still think it's the best way to enjoy this outstanding game.

    Beautiful, fun, addictive and with a lot of care put into it, Link comes back with another great game for 3DS, closing an almost perfect year for the handheld. It goes back to its classic gameplay, but manages to add some new ideas. Sure, it could have been harder and longer, but we've enjoyed every second we've played.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Overall, WAR is a really solid game, very well designed and bringing truly valuable new features to the genre. It still lacks some things, but also has a very long way to go for improving, evolving and growing.

    They have known how to squeeze the most of Nintendo DS, taking advantage of its strong point to make yes, a canonical GTA, but with unique elements which give it freshness. The use of the screens shows us how to combine a classic, well known gameplay, with the unique capabilities of the Nintedo DS. And they have not forgotten what makes a GTA feel special, which just make us want more.

    Trials HD is, hand down, one of the most solid titles of the Xbox Live Arcade platform, and one of the funniest we've played in the platform lifetime.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    A great successor to a magnificient game. It reinvents itself and offers an incredible amount of new content that will make the passionate fans of Trials HD smile. The level editor, the multiplayer mode and its huge number of stages, with a very well-made difficulty curve, provide hours of fun.

    If you didn't like Assassin's Creed 2, Brotherhood will hardly convince you, but if you are one of the series followers, this game is a great sequel to the previous one.

    Tearaway proudly shows off what Vita is capable of, and also proves that LittleBigPlanet was not pure luck. There's a lot of talent in Media Molecule, and we can say they've done it again. Now it's up to you, players, to support a game as good as this one.

    Fun and constant self-challenging are key to PixelJunk, to take apparently simple ideas and take them to practice with amazing mastery. Shooter is the best example of that, you won't be able to leave the gamepad until exploring the last gap of this changing world.

    It would be a shame for Final Fantasy XIII-2 not to receive the attention it deserves. It is one of the best games that Square Enix has made in recent years, and a good proof that the venerable Japanese company can evolve the formula of the genre it helped create. FFXIII-2 mantains its personality and has its own ideas very well executed.

    One must-have compilation. The first reason for this is that the three games are great ones, and shine in HD, especially MGS3, who can stand the comparison with some current games. If you have played one of the titles, or even the three, there are still good reasons to play again some of the most influential console games of the last generation.
    • 92 Metascore

    Criterion's seal of quality. They've managed to squeeze the console version on Sony's handheld, just adapting the graphics to the new hardware. It doesn't look as good as the PS3 or 360 version, but it's still the same experience, and one the best titles you'll see on PSVita in a while. Absolutely recommended for fans of driving games.
