    The new contents are not as good as the original games, and the enemy AI could have been improved, but without doubt this is one of the most interesting launches of recent months.

    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.

    A risky and original game that does well everything it proposes. Magnificient and engaging, with a design that gives the player absolute freedom to solve the challenges.

    Perhaps the guys at Treyarch haven't surpassed its predecessor's bar, but it really was too high. Nevertheless, this does not mean Call of Duty: World at War is not a very good game, it is indeed one of the best of its genre, and no shooter fan should miss it.

    Obsidian has met the expectations and delivered an outstanding old-school RPG, which doesn't feel "old" at all, but "classic".

    This is what WoW deserves in its 10th anniversary. No matter if you haven't played in a while, Warlords of Draenor is the best reason to come back. Or to keep on playing, of course.

    Cave Story is one of the bastions of independent games, and its Wii port offers something else than just charging for it. Its new features are worth the money it costs: revised sound and graphics, a well-made difficulty system, good control and some extras both for veterans and newcomers.

    Xenoblade Chronicles is an amazing game, no matter where you play it. It is true that it has some graphics issues on New 3DS compared to the Wii version, but it is an experience worth living.

    A great game for iOS. An enjoyable and easy to play title, yet difficult to dominate, full of good humour and with a lond duration. A winner cangaroo.

    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.

    A great movie translated to a great videogame. A fun, complete and lasting game, which blends beat'em up and sandbox gameplay and shows great visuals. It can become repetitive and it is not very challenging for seasoned players, but it is a great game for Batman fans.

    Punch-Out!! is an old school game which is far from what we are used to play recently. However, definitely this is not bad news, as the game is as fun as it was then, and moreover its graphics are well updated.

    A game for everyone, for those who like quick game sessions and also for those who are looking for challenges. Easy to play but very deep and challenging, this experiment of turning Kirby into a Pikmin army is great.

    Mikami is back, with a game that reminds of Resident Evil 4, with a touch of Silent Hill and The Last of Us. It's long, hard, fun and challenging, a game you cannot miss if you enjoyed RE4.

    It's as strong as always, but you can feel this generation is coming to an end, and its really hard to make a significant evolution. In any case, it perfect for any basketball fan.

    Need for Speed reinvents itself with a game very different to the series tradition but that results in an excellent racing game, with the right dose of simulation.

    Even though the 'freemium' model might not please everyone, it does work and let the player choose whether he wants some extra modes or not. When it comes to gameplay, it's as good as always, and guarantees many hours of fun.

    Maybe it is not the best time to launch the game on the PS2, but genre fans should be happy to receive an RPG which has all the features of the classics of the genre.
    • 86 Metascore

    This is one of the most attractive and original visual designs of the last years, and also a great game, although many will find it too easy.
    • 83 Metascore

    Clever and very hard, this game reminds us of some good old classics, bringing its own personality and proposal to the genre.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    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.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    An excellent sequel and a great adaptation. It is very conservative as a follow-up of the original despite its gameplay enhancements, but it is very enjoyable and this iOS version is a great chance to play it for an affordable price.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    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.

    The idea of Polyphony is clear: to offer something different to Gran Turismo 5 for the players to jump between both versions to complete the garage, making each experience a bit different.

    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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    A weird experience, short, unique and disturbing. A mix of action and strategy that will absorb you and won't let you stop until you finish it. Not for everyone, but absolutely recommended for those players looking for something new.
    • 81 Metascore

    A game you cannot miss now if you missed it the first time. The visual evolution is worth highlighting, but it still is an outstanding title in every other aspect.

    There's no reason to buy it again if you've already played it on PC, but if you haven't you're missing one of the biggest surprises of the indie scene. A game like no other, fun and addictive.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    As a tribute to the PlayStation family it could have been better, but as a fighting game it's outstanding. Loads of fun based on a great multiplayer will have us playing for a long while.

    Shift 2: Unleashed builds upon the firm base of the previous game and offers more features and better features. More tracks, vehicles and multiplayer options thanks to the inclusion of the social system Autolog, and also better physics and simulation, which have improved the right way. It is not a perfect simulation experience, but will please most gamers.

    This new edition of Dragon Quest is with no doubt one of the best RPG titles up to date in the console portfolio. Despite that it is basically an old title, with a very classic game system that doesn't take advantage of the Nintendo DS possibilities, and an improved yet retro technical aspect, nonetheless it was and remains being a milestone in the RPG genre history.

    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Any fan of the series should be considering buying this game, as long as they don't mind the lack of physical version or not being translated into any other language but English. There's little innovation here, but it's addictive, fun and satisfying.

    Starhawk is not exactly a sequel to Warhack, but it can repeat its success and please fans of Warhawk and also many new players. It is not that good as a single-player game as it is too short, but its multiplayer is great and recommended for those who love something new.

    Full of options, it's complex and very entertaining. It's not the same game we've played on PC or consoles, but still a great choice if you're looking for a strategy/RPG/action game on iOS.

    This is one of the best graphic adventures we've played in the last few years, at least with classic gameplay mechanics. Great story, great characters, great puzzles… and one of the best closures for a trilogy we've seen in a while.

    An addictive game that might seem impossible to beat at first, but has a very adjusted difficulty level and becomes very challenging as soon as you get used to the controls. It doesn't include all the circuits of the Wii version, and doesn't have a multiplayer mode, but it is masterfully designed.

    Star Ocean: Second Evolution is, undoubtedly, a better title than its predecessor from a technical standpoint and also in its gameplay and story. It is an excellent role-playing title, suitable both for newcomers who want to know the series as for classic fans of the series that, although many years have passed since the original's release, won't disappoint Square Enix classic RPGs followers.

    • 88 Critic Score
    It is not "Fable" and it does not try to be, it just takes these elements and combines them with some others to create very fun videogame, with its own personality and a well-achieved and told story, perfectly integrated with its gameplay. A more than recommended buy.

    Tales of Graces F is a great classic Japanese RPG game, featuring a great story, charming characters, many hours of gameplay, a brilliant battle system and many, many things to do.

    We have liked Resistance 3 a lot and consider it the best entry in the series. Although the campaign doesn't mantain the same level of engagement through the whole story, it is very enjoyable, varied and full of intense moments. The game makes a great use of sci-fy weapons to create interesting situations, and its online multiplayer has a lot of options. One of the best shooters of the year.
