    The first Crytek game for the iPhone is a pleasant surprise. Maybe it is too short, but its graphics are outstanding and provides a lot of fun.

    BlazBlue for PSVITA is as good as in the rest of consoles. It has a great fighter roster, plenty of game modes, a good story and a captivating visual design. But especially, its gameplay is deep and engaging. If you can buy the PS3 or 360 version we still recommend them as you can use an arcade stick with them, but if you want to fight wherever you are this should be your choice.

    A wonderful experience that will please us, blending nature and videogames, creating a beautiful and captivating atmosphere that we want to see in more games.

    Fresh air for a genre that needed it. A title with old-school gameplay evolved and adapted to current times with great results. Very fun and charming, sometimes frantic and also free-to-play. If you like non-stop triger-happy action, you should try it.

    A true jewel. A fun, entertaining and very complete game, almost unlimited in duration and with great visual. Can be considered a must-have for iOS.

    As in the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, a polished collection with two classics that every gamer should try. They have been upgraded visually and well adapted to the portable screen, but maybe it arrives too late for some players who had already bought the domestic versions. And of course we miss Peace Walker.

    The genre is as healthy as ever, and this Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is great news for fans of 3D fighting. Although it is a digital only title, it resist the comparison with its rivals, although the game itself is not that new and it lacks single player modes.

    Mass Effect: Infiltrator honors de series. After the first and mediocre first attempt of EA and Bioware in iOS, now Mass Effect and its universe have a great adaptation, with ever growing content.

    The Walking Dead: Episode 2 - Starved for Help is a very satisfying game and its only flaws are technical. It keeps the same gameplay than the first game, but Telltalte has managed to give the script a twist for it to feel different and surprise us again. Three hours of pure fun, a must have for comic fans.

    An original, fun and entertaining app that is above most of the games in the App Store. Its gameplay is direct and its control great, and is also beatifully crafted in graphics.

    Sleeping Dogs is a very good sandbox game, even though there are two things some players may complain about: its lack of personality and the lack of innovation. If you're OK with this, then this game has a lot to offer, from many hours of fun to a engaging story. Sleeping Dogs is, above all, a great surprise full of entertainment and quality. Definitely worth trying.

    Darksiders II is better than we expected, we just loved it. It offers tons of content to keep us playing for many many hours, and proves that you don't need to reinvent the wheel to create something new and full of personality. As a game it is excellent and generous with the player, so if you liked the first game, then you should now the wait was worth it. If you miss the original Darksiders, please give this a try. To sum up, it's just one of the adventures of the year. A must-have.

    Dark Souls is definitely an absolutely great game, and it proves you can attract a big audience by offering an unusually high difficulty. New content, a high-res fixes and some other improvements are the reasons why this version is the best of the three available. It's not the best PC adaptation, but it is an experience worth playing.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Offers one of the best single player campaigns we've seen in years. Entertaining, different, intense, spectacular and with really memorable moments. It sticks to the original series, something fans will definitely love. It offers everything Transformers fans have always asked for. Its multiplayer modes won't be consider revolutionary, but it is a must-have, above all if you're a fan of the series.

    PES is back with the best episode of the HD era. It's still one step behind FIFA when we talk about technical aspects, but it brings back that little 'something' we loved on PS2 that made it special. The new additions to the control system and the detail put into every match to make them different are some of the key elements we feel are worth mentioning. PES 2013 is finally able to fight the supremacy FIFA has this generation.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Loads and loads of content for a reasonable price. Not the most innovative game, but solid and well-developed. It's fun, long and offers great gameplay. Fully recommendable for those who consider themselves fans of this kind of game.

    If you loved Little King's Story you should try this version. Differences are not huge, but enough to make you replay the adventure. A great choice if you enjoy this kind of games, and fully recommendable if you don't have any kind of previous experience.

    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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.

    Bad Piggies twists the Angry Birds concept to make it unique, different and fun: creating devices. It will keep us playing for a ling time, trying to get all the stars and secrets. Rovio has promised free updates to improve it little by little, so Bad Piggies is indeed an app we have to recommend.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Not an evolution of the series but a step forward indeed. Good for playing "seriously" or just for fun, with a solid base that allows the developers to include crazy ideas that actually fit in the game. The track list is, as well, as good as we expected.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Exactly what we expected. The campaign struggles to surprise, but the multiplayer and zombie modes have been greatly improved, and they are the ones to credit for making it an outstanding title. Some people will complain about the lack of evolution, while some others will enjoy the hundreds of hours of fun it offers.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's complex, can be played as many times as we want and there are so many possibilities we couldn't ask for something better. Some may say there's little evolution compared to the previous episodes, but one way or another, we think it's one of the best games we've played this year.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Frenetic, wild, interesting, deep, full of content... the list goes on and on. It's one the best first-person sandbox ever made, and we only hope there's a bright future waiting for this IP.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    You might not enjoy its concept, but if you do, then you'll find a big game with a lot of possibilities. We hope Activision will keep on improving the series, but so far it's going the right way.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The same experiences we've enjoyed on other consoles, keeping all its strengths and weaknesses. There's little use of the GamePad, but Ubisoft didn't want to force the experience.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The most complete version so far is one of those games you don't want to miss if you've just bought your new Wii U. Beautiful and deep, Trine 2 is as good as we've seen it on other platforms.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    As an adaptation, it's somewhere between PS3 and Xbox 360, but one way or another it's an outstanding game. However, it's quite weird playing the end of a story, no matter how many comics we find along the way.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's as good as always and solves the issues we experienced with GTA III. A great adaptation worth checking out, whether you've already played the original game or not.

    Visually stunning and technically outstanding, Hollywood Monsters is a must-have for graphic adventures fans.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is an unique title, above all in the West. It's worth a try, and will manage to keep us playing for a long while. On the top of that, getting all the endings may take around 30 hours, so if you like this kind of games, this one is definitely a must have.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the most interesting and fresh puzzles we've seen lately for these devices. It may look simple, but it gets harder and harder, and mastering it will take us a while.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It offers almost everything you could ask from a puzzle game: it's easy to play, intellectually challenging, fresh and visually appealing. We would have like it a little bit longer, but still it's a great choice for those who want to challenge themselves.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Shootings, platforming, puzzles, exploration and a great visual experience rewrite the story – and history – of Tomb Raider. This is a beautiful adventure that everyone will enjoy, except those expecting a classic Tomb Raider game.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Brilliant. It's original, addictive and has loads of contents. It brings the original formula to the iDevices and improves it, offering one of the best role and strategy games we've seen for iOS.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There's still room for improvement, but it's a must-have for those looking for a shooter on 3DS, even if they've played the Wii U version.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Extremely addictive and fun, this is one of the best indie games you can find these days. If you're looking for plain fun, this is one of the best choices.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is a great graphic adventure from every perspective: storytelling, plot, gameplay… If you love the genre and/or science fiction, The Silent Age is a very recommended option.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Probably a must-have for fans of the genre. Even though it doesn't make the most of Wii U's unique features, it's as good as the other console versions, and even better in some aspects.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A better game than its predecessor, fun, addictive and powered by great gameplay.
    • 84 Metascore

    This is just a great example of how to evolve classic ideas to make them feel fresh. Guacamelee! is one of those games you will play till you finish it.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    We loved it the first time and we love it again. It proves the genre can be expanded, and proves it being outstanding in every aspect.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Even though it's not perfect, it's one of the most addictive games on the handheld. The game mechanics works very well, but keep in mind that those looking for a Monster Hunter on PS Vita probably won't find that.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    If you like real-time strategy games, or if you enjoyed the first one, this is a game you can't miss. It's not a revolution, but it polishes the original experience.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is one of those games that make us wonder where's the line between console and mobile gaming. A great game whose first episode left us waiting for more.

    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A great game that will keep players in front of the screen for hours, specially the most dedicated and competitive one. It has not evolved too much from its predecessor, but it was hard to do so without ruining its essence.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    We miss some kind of multiplayer, co-op mode, but apart from that there are no big issues we can complain about. It keeps evolving, and it's as good, addictive and fun as we remember it.
    • 86 Metascore

    It's one of the most solid and complete strategy games we've seen in a long while. Definitely, one of those games fans of the genre don't want to miss.

    If you've ever played and enjoyed a 2D platform game, you cannot miss this one. Another title that proves that this genre, long forgotten, is back.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is simply the best work Vanillaware so far. We absolutely recommend it for those looking for 2D action games, RPG adventures or multiplayer-focused experiences. This time there's more than beautiful graphics. It is a solid and fun experience you should try.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It was a great game two years ago and it still is. Every addition is an improvement, and if you missed it the first time, it's the best opportunity to give it a try.

    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.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.

    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.

    It seems like we will have to wait some time to see more armies, as it happened in the first game. Even though, this is one of the most recommended acquisitions of this year, and one of those titles that no strategy devotee should let escape.

    A must-have for fans of the Phoenix Wright series, as it is even better than those, and not very recommended for those who don't have much patience or don't like very much to read, as sometimes there is a lot of story to be told. Everyone who likes graphic adventure games should try it for its originality and surprising plot.

    Its new contents are not that important, but will enhance durability for solo players. Its major flaws are the downgrade in graphics and the absence of PlayStation 3 compatibility: you'll have to unlock everything again if you had done it on the PS3. A great fighting game with charming personality that fans of the series will love.
