    Ryhthm Thief and the Emperor's Treasure is more than it appears to be. It is not just another music and rhythm game, but an engaging title that will make us play for hours. The story it offers is a right decision, as it invites us to keep playing and advance to unlock more songs.

    This HD upgrade delivers what it promises. It enhances image quality, adds trophies to foster replayability, and also includes 3D steroscopic vision. We only miss some extra content, like artworks galleries, interviews with the team or a making of documentary, but those who didn't enjoy the originals have here a very interesting buy to consider.

    A difficult genre in which most companies fail, but Capcom has made a very good open-world RPG, which can turn in a series, thanks to its good ideas and execution. It has a lot of flaws, but gamers will love the game, as it becomes addictive while offering something different and with personality.

    A more than noteworthy MMORPG with a phenomenal combat system. We are sure future MMORPG will take good note of TERA's combat mechanics and once you try it you will be convinced. Despite this great combat system, the game is too traditional in other aspects. Every fan of the genre should give it at least a try.

    An impressive game on the 3DS, which has surpassed our expectations both technically and artistically, and truly a unique game in the 3DS. We hope the content is expanded in the future.

    The best LEGO game to date, and in fact one of the best Batman games ever. It becomes a sandbox, but this is not the best of Lego Batman 2. Its level design shines, with great situations and challenges that will keep us playing for hours.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A horror adventure with classic flavour, something we miss in current times. Its story is really interesting and its combat system is great. It also has a great atmosphere, and the game knows how to mantain the player in tension and fear. Although its controls are quite archaic and it has much to improve technically, this is a very recommended game.

    Yet another jewel in Xbox Live. It is a bit stressing to be constantly killed at first, but it quickly becomes challenging and addictive, as if it were a 2D platforms Dark Souls. Its gameplay is delicious and the control is perfect. We would love to see a "metroidvania" game with this design.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A great graphical adventure with an interesting story that will make you enjoy as a child while discovering the misteries of this tale. Also, it has a delighting visual design, although technically a bit poor, with mediocre animations. It is a bit easy, but the story is great and is a very recommended title for adventure lovers.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A convincing game, designed to teach the user and foster its creativity and abilities. It won't turn you into a painter, but maybe encourages you to try the real thing with some knowledge.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    If you enjoyed the first game you will find in this sequel the classic formula: more and better, but with few additions or new features. Apart from this, this is a great game, and you can try the demo before deciding a purchase.

    Sound Shapes is one of those downloadable jewels for platforming and music fans. Its only flaw is that it is a bit short in the campaign mode, but it compensates for it with several challenge options and a comprehensive editor. One of the most original PSN games in months.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Hybrid is refreshing, and those who are tired of playing the same kind of multiplayer game all the time, or simply those who love action multiplayer games, should give it a try. Getting used to the inability to move around freely might be difficult at the beginning, but then you find out that it's part of the gameplay and what makes it different. Everything is different in Hybrid. It's yet to be seen whether the players will embrace the idea and wait for the issues to be fixed, but the risks taken by 5th cell deserve our support.

    Telltale Games knows what they're doing. They've managed to surprise us again and leave us waiting for the next episode. The plot is shocking and won't let us go till we finish it, and together with the evolution and the importance of the decisions of the characters make it a very recommendable title, whether you're a fan of the comics or not.
    • 77 Metascore

    Jack Lumber is a simple game but it works and it's fun and entertaining, so it's pretty much everything we can ask for. This universal app for both iPod/iPhone and iPad will definitely keep you playing, even though maybe for a slightly short time.
    • 90 Metascore

    Mark of the Ninja is a very recommended choice on Xbox Live Arcade –it's one of those games that wouldn't exist without digital distribution. Level and artistic design are definitely worth mentioning. If you're ok with its price (1.200 MSP), we're sure you'll enjoy being a ninja.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Definitely a step forward, but still it doesn't surprise. This is the common problem of the annual series, but we need to make it clear that this episode means an improvement compared to F1 2011. Now, if you have the last episode it's up to you to decide whether the new one is worth it. If you don't, it's a wonderful racing game and the best F1 title we've seen in years.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    An excellent, fun and original game. We may end up missing some more levels, but hopefully Ubisoft will be adding them in the future. Rayman Jungle Run is a game we fully recommend for both fans and newcomers to the Rayman franchise.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Joe Danger's back and is better than ever. Entertaining and different, simple and demanding, with many new options loads of content. The only things we can complain about are the lack of online multiplayer and the extreme difficulty at the end of the game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    There's not many additions compared to the console version (except for the 12 DLC characters), but still is an excellent 2D fighting game. A must have for fans of any to the series, always keeping in mind that the Gems system might be a problem when you start playing online.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's easy to understand and offers a different experience, something not very common these days. Technically surprising, it's hard to forget the fact that it's has been developed for kids, but if you're a Harry Potter fan, you should give it a try.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's more than a simple 'hidden objects' game, it's a tribute some nostalgic players will appreciate. On the top of that, it's a very interesting title that will keep us busy for a long while.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is an addictive, long and hard game. Visually stunning and fun ARC Squadron is one of the best games in its genre we've seen this year, so if you like shooting aliens it's worth trying.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A great title with the best multiplayer we've seen on this console so far. There are some framerate issues, but if you're a FPS fan, then this is a must have.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The best adventure based on The Lord of the Rings. Long, fun, beautiful and close to the movies. If you're a LOTR fan then go ahead and buy it. If you're not, give it a try –it's great.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A great example of what a DLC should be: it's deep and expands the features of the huge original experience. Actually, it's so good that we can't wait to see the next one.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's surprisingly good in every aspect, and offers a great experience. It's fun, beautiful and well-adapted to the hardware it runs on, so we at least recommend having a look at it.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It is exactly what we expected: a classic graphic adventure, continuing the trilogy and improving everything we saw in the first episode. We really miss having it localized –into Spanish in our case– but still is a great choice we're sure you'll enjoy.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Surprisingly good, it offers a great free-to-play experience with dozens of hours of fun ahead. There are some technical issues waiting to be solved, but if the studio, the publisher and the players support PlanetSide 2, the future of PlanetSide 2 could be really bright.

    • 85 Critic Score
    It's the same outstanding basketball simulator we've seen before, but there are some minor issues compared to the previous versions, like the frame rate or the lack of use of the GamePad. Still, the best option for those looking for a basketball game.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Frustrating at the beginning, after a little while we'll get used to the gameplay mechanics and then, we will be able yo enjoy this puzzle game. It's quite entertaining and challenging, and thus, recommended for those looking for this kind of experiences on 3DS.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Yes, it's short, but it's one of those games only an indie developer can make. It's special, addictive and fun, and a must-have for those who love platforming titles.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    If you can leave all the controversy aside, you'll find an experience any action game fan will like. Its polished gameplay, its stunning art and its frenetic proposal are certainly something you should try.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It brings the original formula one step closer to perfection, improving its visuals and gameplay. There's nothing extremely special under the new version, but it's free and still fun, so there's no reason to stick to the previous one.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A great choice full of humor for those who want to get started in the genre. Long-time fans may find it easy, and we were expecting a deeper gameplay, but still a great recommendation.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's a new path in the genre, with a great use of the free-to-play concept. It's innovative and simple, and will give any user loads of fun.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    One of the best platforming and action games on 3DS. It's a must-have on the handheld, and works perfectly no matter if you've played Castlevania: Lords of Shadow or not.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The mission system may be something some players will dislike, compared to the freedom of the original. However, it has many hours of gameplay to offer, and the new multiplayer mode is a great addition that will make us forget about that.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is a different and challenging puzzle, with its own personality, that makes you think in a creative way. It may be quite hard for some players, but if you're not afraid, then it's for you.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is one of the gems we randomly find on the Marketplace. Simple but fun, BattleBlock Theater offers a great platformer, it's surprising and very addictive.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is a worth-mentioning, complete and well-designed version of the console game. It's mainly based on strategy, and we miss some extra modes, but still think it deserves a try.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is not the best fighting game of the generation, but it is one of the most enjoyable, fun and spectaculars we've played in a while. Its fast and dynamic pace and its amount of content are two of the main reasons why DC fans will love this title.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It has all the virtues we can expect from an indie game. If you're going to play with friends you'll make the most of it, since playing on your own makes the game losing some of its appeal.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is anything but another endless runner. Mixing RPG and action features, Slayin is a great surprise for those tired of the same concept again and again.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Even though it looks like a random, crazy game, it's actually a pretty solid offer that players who just want to have fun will enjoy. Anyway, just the fact of Ubisoft has released such a wild concept gives us some hope for a future where big companies take risks with their games.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It aims for fun, and it sure achieves it. There are lots of new features on PC, so those who missed it first appearance should go and check it out.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    From a apparently simple mechanic, this game will evolve becoming something very addictive and challenging. The different modes and the ability to create and share levels will bring us many hours of fun.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Even though the genre may be quite saturated these days, this is a great option. It's fun, deep, mature and different. There are some issues with the AI and it's not extremely different from its previous episodes, but if that's not a problem, you'll probably enjoy this new adventure.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is probably the most balanced experience between the old and the new Resident Evil in the last few years. Above all, it's full of content, so we've got a great game to spent some quality time with.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It is a very complete game, fun and addictive, but the free-to-play model is way too demanding here. We would have liked to have a version we could buy without in-app purchases and adds.

    What GRID 2 does best is not trying to copy any of its rivals. Everything works great and, above all, it manages to always be entertaining.

    We're really happy to have games like this brought to the West, but we're even happier because it is a great choice for RPG/strategy games fans, with plenty of characters you will enjoy playing as or against.
    • 87 Metascore

    It is something really different and interesting, that pushed us to keep on playing till we finished it.

    Tiny Thief is a very solid game in every aspect, perfect for short -or long- gaming sessions.
    • 69 Metascore

    • 75 Metascore

    If you have the original, you should think twice about getting this one. However, if you don't it's a great and a very complete fighting game.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's an outstanding shooter that offers a solid experience beyond the incredible graphics it shows on Vita. With this title, Guerrilla Games has proven that they are not "mercenaries".
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is one of those title hardcore gamers have been asking for. It's like those old school games you played for ages until you got better, so, if this is the challenge you're looking for, go for it.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is a game for those who enjoy what a game used to be: a challenge. If that's not what you're looking for, even the "casual mode" could be too much for you.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This new episode lives up to the bar set by the previous one, and becomes and must-have for fans of the genre.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This could be your favorite game in the last ten years. Or rightly the opposite. It does have personality, but there's no way we can tell you how it is or how you're going to feel when you play it, so the only way to find out is giving it a try it.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's like a hipster game. It manages to make you think about narrative in video games, and maybe something else. Sometimes fun, sometimes clever, but always unique. One of those games you either love or hate.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's as good as last year's episode, but the 30 years of Wrestlemania mode is an addition that every fan will enjoy. Also, if you're not a fan of this show, having so many legends available might be a good reason to give it a try.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It brings back the classic experience of the series, and except for not being as big as it used to be, this Ratchet & Clank has more strengths than weaknesses. A game any fan of the series should, at least, try.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    For once, free-to-play means free to play. A solid experience that can be completed, and enjoyed, without spending a penny. Above all, a promising community hints at an even more promising future.

    It's probably the best karting game on iOS devices. There's a in-app purchases system that we're not too fond of, but the overall experience is fun, addictive and solid.

    A great game that offers a lot for very little, responsive, fun and addictive. There are a few additions on PC, but the experience remains the same.
    • 82 Metascore

    It is a game PS Vita users can't miss, even thought there's little evolution from its predecessor, and it's rather a 1.5 version.

    Drakengard 3 is a game aimed at a very specific audience, and it should be reviewed as such. If you can see beyond the graphics, and you're looking for a good story and loads of action, this is a game that you will hardly forget.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It is far from being a new experience, but it adds enough content to become the ultimate edition of one of the best fighting games of the current generation.

    A great MMO with loads of content from the very beginning. The subscription model might be a hurdle for some players, but at least it offers the possibility of paying for it with making money within the game. We need to wait and see if it receives enough support from the community and developers, but the starting point is very promising.

    It's a great roguelike platformer, even though it brings zero additions compared to the PC version. If you haven't played it yet, it's a great option, especially if your Vita needs some games for the summer.
    • 84 Metascore

    It has more changes than last year's and it's on the right track, but still far from what we all desire.
