    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.

    Although it may look too short in content if judged only as an expansion, Blizzard has done an overwhelming job renewing the World of Warcraft universe.

    It is likely to go unnoticed, but it's a very interesting collection, with addictive gameplay, outstanding soundtrack and great design. The Bit.Trip might not look appealing but it is surprisingly rewarding.

    Not only improves on the original, but also offers a great implementation of PlayStation Move control, and enough new features to set a new landmark.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    You can say its not very innovative in comparison with the original game. But this is a minor thing if we take into account that this is without doubt the best game in the genre, and a great achievement if we consider the great struggle with its rival, that doesn't lose grip.

    We still miss feeling that our actions do impact the plot, but this episode is full of great moments worth experiencing. So far, we can only wait for the third episode and hope that Telltale keeps bringing such an outstanding narrative.

    A more than justified sequel. The gameplay doesn't change a lot, but the new features bring some freshness and renovation to the formula, and the new visuals are great. It is as addictive as ever, and a sure bet for your iPhone.

    We can say without hesitation than this is the best Sonic game for the Wii, and maybe the best Sonic 3D ever made.

    A great game that might pass unnoticed by most gamers. It attempts to adapt to everyone, offering tons of customization options for the controls, and has an excellent gameplay and a very complete multiplayer game.

    It feels next-gen not because of the graphics, but because of the experience. In a few years we'll see many more games like this, and we'll have to look back at it to see where it started.

    It's a great expansion that takes a step forward from all we've seen previously. There are more situations in the campaign, a more competitive multiplayer and it's more accessible for new players. It's not perfect, but it'll keep us playing for a long while.

    Bungie makes Destiny better than ever, building on the solid foundations it already had. If you missed it the first time, it's a great moment to find out what it has to offer. If you already played it, it will tweak the experience to make you want to go back at it.

    Somewhere between being remade and being remastered, Abe's back with an adventure that's a little bit easier, but still full of charm.
    • 71 Metascore

    It's exactly what we expected: a deep tribute to video games, mainly from the 80/90's. Crazy and intense, Retro City Rampage is able to entertain without a groundbreaking visual aspect. It could've been longer and the translation (at least into Spanish) could've been better, but if you like gaming and you miss the old school games, then it's a must-have.

    As we have already said, Henry Hatsworth is one of the best and biggest surprise the Nintendo DS has given us in this year. Its excellent and varied gameplay is its best argument to understand its success between the critic and the public, apart from its fun story and its unlimited addictivity, thanks to combining two concepts: puzzles and platforms.
    • 71 Metascore

    It's a difficult game, spectacular and addictive, filled with personality. It's definitely one of the best titles on Wii U so far, so if you are interested in the genre, go ahead and buy it.

    The Old Republic is here to stay, and offers epic galactic adventures making the most of the Star Wars universe. Although it doesn't evolve the gameplay of the genre, with a very conservative style, it takes a leap in improving the narrative, successfully achieving to tell a great story. We are eagerly waiting for updates and improvements in the future.

    Nuclear Throne is one of the best games we've played in the last few months, thanks to a formula that gets pretty close to perfection. It's one of those games you could always play "just one more time".

    Yakuza 5 is what it is expected to be. It hasn't changed its formula, and it still works for its fans. You'll love it or you'll hate it, but if you happen to love it, you'll find one of the best games PS3 has received this year.

    This is basically more Final Fantasy XIV, and that's great news. We miss something really surprising or innovative, but still, this is a great experience that lives up to the expectation of Final Fantasy's 14th episode.

    A extremely pleasant surprise that deserves a break from all those action games to be enjoyed. The innocence of these two brothers is one of the best downloadable games of the year.

    Although it may seem that Guitar Hero 5 is just an update of the last year edition, the truth is that the new features, the improvements in the interface and the track list make it the best installment of the series in the last years.

    It brings back the formula seen on consoles, so this should be enough to picture what it has to offer: many hours of fun, a great gameplay, and loads of secrets, achievements, tricks and contents waiting to be unlock. We only miss multiplayer modes, but still is a very recommended option.

    Minecraft is one of those games that everyone must try. You can stop playing for a month and return, to discover how many new features there are for us to try. A game that makes you feel like a child again, and one of the most remarkable ones in the last few years.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This might not be the game you were waiting for on PS4, but it delivers loads of fun. It's better than its previous episode, and if you are a PS Plus subscriber, then it's a game you cannot miss.

    A great, addictive arcade that those looking for a challenge, and particularly those fond of skateboarding, will love. We think it needs a level editor, but so far there's a lot of content to keep us going.

    A must-have for genre followers, that again puts NIS as the leader in strategic RPG games. We miss more options, like the possibility to save the game in the middle of a battle, and a more comprehensive online mode. The best Disgaea game to date.

    Renegade Ops uses simple but effective gameplay mechanics, which will be liked for those looking for an spiritual succesor of Jackal, and also shoot'em up lovers. The game is short in duration, but its cooperative modes compensate for it.

    The setting change works well, and the story will please series followers, with surprises and comebacks which will thrill Resident Evil fans. Resident Evil 5 offers a quality experience, despite some incongruities - all of them can be overlood -, which will engage us in front of the TV for hours, thanks to its gameplay and its high doses of action, tension and fun.

    Everything feels like a step forward, even though there are some aspects (like random tutorials or some situations in which we felt completely out of control) that we would like to see more polished. Still, a great choice for The Sims fans.

    A great game, full of details that make it shine every time we play. Forza Horizon needs many hours to make the most of it, but just a few minutes to start enjoying it. It also proves that an open-world title could be as deep, profound and interesting as any other game.

    Crusader Kings II is probably the best game Paradox has ever made. The nordic studio is getting more and more experienced in the strategy genre after years making excellent titles, and the depth of Crusader Kings II is simply overwhelming. Thanks to its good AI, the game gets challenging and realistic. Its only flaws are the limitations in the military part.

    A great step forward for wrestling game that we think will convince the fans. Those who haven't played wrestling games too often have a great chance to approach them again, as WWE 12 changes a lot in comparison with previous Smackdown vs RAW entries.

    Everything fans may expect. A frantic and incredibly fun multiplayer with tons of options, game modes and unlockables, and also very well polished, and an intense campaign that concludes a story which started with Modern Warfare four years ago. The formula is aging - although it works as well as ever, its visuals are stagnating, but this is still a must-have for those looking for direct action.

    Resident Evil 6 offers a huge variety of situations, full of surprises and unforgettable moments, but there's only a tiny bit of the survival horror it once was. However, no matter the relationship between you and Resident Evil, we believe you should try RE6. As imperfect as ambitious, as frenetic as fun, it's a solid proof that Japan still knows how to make games.

    This is a masterpiece of a genre whose essence has been lost because of the "casualization" of the video games. It's like going back to the 8/16 bits, when the experience was the most important thing. There's only two things we can complain about: not being localized (into Spanish) and not being ready for HDTV's. If this is not a problem for you, then it scores a perfect 10.

    Although we don't understand why this PSVITA version has lost its multiplayer component, it is still a great platforming game and one of the best in the platform launch portfolio.
