    It may dissapoint those who expected a 3D Metroidvania, but it's one of the best action games of this year.

    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.

    It improves the original formula, but, obviously, doesn't surprise as the original did. Still, one of the best fighting games available at the moment.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    It has evolved, and although maybe regular fans of the genre would wait for more new features, it is true it contributes with enough of them to catch our attention, entertain and make us enjoy.

    Super Mario Maker is a great tool to make both traditional and crazy Mario levels. It not only is a really interesting game, but also a great example of what Wii U and its GamePad can do.

    Combining variety, accessibility and a carefully measured pace, Codemasters has achieved a great racing game above any consideration.

    This is a great, fresh open world action adventure game, with a very well-implemented Nemesis system. It's an outstanding surprise, and we think it deserves a try.

    Obviously, it doesn't match the technical standards of the "bigger" versions, but it does deliver the Titanfall experience.

    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.
    • 71 Metascore

    This is a surprisingly good card-based game. We think some extra modes or local multiplayer would be great additions, but still we absolutely recommend it.

    A great version of the original Xbox title, with some visual improvements that make it look great on the PlayStation Vita screen. Recommended for those who missed the original game or just for those who want to play a better version on a handheld.

    It is faithful to its arcade style and offers hours of spectacle and craziness. The game shines because of its obvious merits and also the absence of competitors. Those who wanted the series to reappear or want and adrenaline burst with their game pad should get it.

    • 88 Critic Score
    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.

    • 88 Critic Score
    It is obviously a step forward in the franchise, but not as big a it should be. The additions are great, but we would have liked to have seen a true evolution of the visuals or new modes. Still, it is a great FIFA.

    An humorous and charming game which is spectacular sometimes and has an excellent visual design and great music. It is full of contents and becomes inmediatly one of the best games of the console and a must have for Nintendo fans.
    • 72 Metascore

    AlphaBounce is an excellent update of the classic brick-breaker concept, and the adventure engages the player.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    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.

    Turn 10 has done a great job with Forza Motorsport 6, fixing many of the issues its predecessor had. Still, we think it should try to be more ambitious so it really feels like a next generation game. One way or another, is one of the best racing simulators we’ve ever played.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    It gets the best of both genres, and it gets it right. It works pretty much for every kind of player, but if you enjoy Magic, then it's a game you should try.

    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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Pretty much everything it does, it does it right. It's a great choice for stealth fans, and a must-have for fans of the series.

    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 need to mention that being only in English might be a problem for those unfamiliar with the language, but if you're a fan of the RPGs, you can't miss it.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Highly recommended for 2D fighting fans, a must-have for those who enjoyed the previous game, an excellent chance to return to a genre for those who left it years ago, and also a good option for many to discover a new style of game, through a charming roster of characters.

    XCOM 2 manages to offer all its core experience with new features, making it a great sequel for the reboot of the franchise. It's a tough challenge, but if you're willing to accept it, you won't be disappointed.

    Codemasters is back with the game we've been waiting for years. DiRT Rally is a very, very challenging simulator that forces you to improve with every race, but above all, it's fun and brings back some of the feelings Colin McRae games gave us.

    It is not a revolution for sandbox games, but it makes the most of their possibilities to make crazy and fun things, in an open world full of cool and bizarre features. Those who are looking for a compelling story should consider other games, but Saints Row: The Third is the best in providing crazy fun.

    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.

    A game which is not for everyone, but will inspire many with its great atmosphere and thrilling story. This PC version has improved visuals but lacks a better optimization. The controls have also been adapted decently, but with room for improvement.

    Although there's nothing really new here, we've had a lot of fun playing this game, and that's what matters. If you still want more zombies, this is a great choice and a next-gen experience.

    From the very first video, you already knew whether Rain was for you or not. It's short and simple. Actually, it's always trying to tell you what to do next, preventing you from even attempting to think how to solve a situation, which is something hard to understand and annoying. But if you can forgive this, you'll live an experience that no other game can give you.

    Behind its impressive visuals, there's a game with plenty of options, meant to stay for a long time on our devices. The free-to-play model might be controversial, but after all, it allows the player to decide whether keep on playing or not.

    A game that shines, but needs to be quickly polished for Funcom to establish it as one of the great games of the genre. Its atmosphere, story, character progression system and mission design have captivated us, but we fear that the lack of content and the errors it has can cut its potential. If Funcom can achieve a good pace of updates, with new content and enhancements, this secret world can live for years.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    It has some aspects we'd like to see improved (the netcode, extra modes...), but apart from this, it's the best episode of the franchise. Fun and brutal, as it should be.

    A pleasant surprise and quite an special app, with solid gameplay and a very addictive mechanic. Once you've built the first bridge you will be captivated. Maybe it is a bit scarce in content and lacks some more options -like weather effects-, but it is still a great game.

    The quality of this new Gears is outstanding and the new approach certainly suits it, but the overall feelings we've got are not that good.

    This is the launch title everyone should get, provided they like the action-adventure genre. A pocket blockbuster which can resist the comparison with the domestic entries and makes good use of the touch screen to add extra gameplay features.

    Black Ops III is a game with a huge amount of content, and all of it is solid and well-developed. Again, we didn't enjoy the campaign as we used to do back in the day, but the zombie and the multiplayer modes can be the best ones we've played in a few years. If you've ever loved playing CoD online, this game can be the reason to come back or to keep on playing it.

    Those who have been longing for years for a Parasite Eve sequel could get slightly dissapointed by The 3rd Birthday, which continues the story, but not the gameplay, becoming a more linear and repetitive game, focused almost only on combat.

    It is not the best Mario game in the last years, but it is great as a portable Super Mario, one of the best portable games ever starred by Mario.
