    It is not only recommended for fans of the original game, but for anyone who want to embark into a new roleplaying adventure with a lot of intelligent humour.

    If you like RPG games, this is a great experience and a wonderful remake, that adds not only improved visuals, but also loads of content.

    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.

    Telltale proves that they know how to write a story, and we just cannot wait to see how it unfolds in the next episode.

    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.

    It feels like a big expansion, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it. Actually, it's one of those games RPG fans cannot miss.

    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.

    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.

    This title surprises us bringing all the content –and almost the same visuals– than the console version. It's the karts game PSVita was missing, and proves once again that Sony's handheld has a great variety of titles.

    This episode of the Ys series is a great example of what a RPG game is supposed to be. It offers the depth some users look for, and also the accessibility some others do. A great addition to the PS Vita's catalogue.

    Tales of Monkey Island is one of the mos frantic and fun adventures out there, specially from the third chapter. Telltale Games has not resurrected Guybrush just to make profits, but to create a new set of adventures that work perfectly.

    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. Maybe it's just that Gears of War 3 is too close in time, but, in any case, People Can Fly has done a great job that will satisfy the fans of the series and anyone looking for lots of action.

    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. Drake is as charming as ever, and this title defines what the genre can offer in the PSVita. Shooting is at last fun on portable consoles.

    Champions Online is hands down a breath of fresh air for the MMORPG genre. The game concept is slightly different from the one we are used to seeing in the genre, although only in some details that genre newcomers might not even notice.

    This is a great example of how to make a Japanese RPG, keeping its foundations but making it work in 2013. Fun and engaging, it has some issues that will we forgive as soon as we start playing.

    One of the best space shooters we've seen this year. If you're a fan of the genre it should be in your wishlist, and even if you're not it deserves a try.

    NIS and Disgaea never disappoint, and this is yet another game RPG fans shouldn't miss. If you've played the original game, you'll find many new things here, even though the core experience is pretty much the same.

    It could have had a better story or had a wider variety of missions, but still, Destiny is one of the best first person shooters we've seen in the last few years.

    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. But it is a great action game, with lots of customization options and a good control scheme.

    It’s been a tough start, but this is the way to go. If they keep polishing the experience and adding content, Los Santos is going to be our home for a long time.

    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. Despite this, we think this game could have been even better, as Nintendo has always achieved extreme levels of quality will its major series. Anyway, a must-have for 3DS owners.
    • 68 Metascore

    Behind a dull design, this is one of the best platformers we've seen in a few years. Extremely hard and addictive, it's one of those games that catches you for hours.

    It still is as good as we remember it. If you've already played it on Wii there are not too many reasons to play it again, but if you missed it, you've got in front of you one of the best platformers we've seen in the last few years.

    A new experience in puzzle games that will keep us playing for a long while. There's a whole new way of solving enigmas while we learn some things about real life thanks to the philosophical clues the game gives us.

    A surprisingly addictive experience, with loads of fun to offer as long as we have friends to bring home and play with, since it's multiplayer-focused and there's no online modes.

    It is a great surprise, and even though we've felt the team behind could have pushed harder to make it a better experience, it's a game fans of the genre will definitely enjoy.

    Namco Bandai has showed that air combat games can be as thrilling and spectacular as first-person shooters. Every wargame fan should give the game a try, even those who have never tried a flight simulator game, for its great new gameplay features.

    It is the same Wipeout formula we have enjoyed before both on the PS3 and the PSP, but with outstanding graphics and a much better control thanks to the use of the dual analog sticks. The motion sensor use is an extra mode that is not that good, but the use of the touch screen is perfect. It might not be the best Wipeout in the series, but is one of the best titles in the launch of PSVita.

    A polished evolution of what we saw last year, as if PES 2011 was midway to the goal PES 2012 has achieved. It changes some of the controls, and greatly enhances AI, although it still has its flaws, especially with the goalkeepers. But, above all, PES 2012 is a really engaging and fun football game, with much more variety and charm than previous entries.

    Just another step forward of the series, without relevant additions, but still recommended for any Professor Layton fan or for those who want to try it for the very first time. However, we really hope Level 5 will manage to surprise us with the next episode before the whole series get stuck.

    DiRT 3 is again a great offroad racing game, midway between arcade and simulation and fully customizable by the player. It improves its graphics and controls, and also adds more assitance to less experimented users. The addition of Gymkhanas is good, although it may not convince those users who just want to race in tracks. Overall, a great sequel that is still the best in what it does.

    This new entry surpasses the previous game in everything, but it is too conservative, continuing the formula instead of evolving it. It is still a great fighting game, but Namco Bandai could have taken more risks to innovate in the genre.

    Even if this episode has turned the series into a action game – even though there's many survival horror fans out there – we must admit it's a very good game.

    This new edition takes important steps forward. The tires are more important and the different types are more noticiable when driving, and the addition of DRS and more strategy options changes the way to race. It has also added much needed features like the safety car or the possibility to manage the whole Grand Prix event, from the free training durint Friday to the race on Sunday.
