    It is not a revolution, but it is one of the best RPGs we've seen in a while. Definitely, the best of its genre on the next generation of consoles.

    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.

    Art Style: AQUITE has the risk of going unnoticed, but it truly presents one of the most interesting proposal of this first wave of DSIWare titles, and in fact, regardless its origins, is a puzzle that has delighted us and we only miss any sort of multiplayer option.

    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.

    A pleasant surprise that blends elements from classic and current platforming games and achieves great results. It may result in a short, or too easy game for expert players, but its gameplay is delightful.

    It is a great strategy/management game. There's nothing like innovation here, but still is a very recommendable experience, specially for Star Wars fans.

    It delivers what is expected from the franchise: a great, deep experience. It also offers some new, tweaked gameplay to make it feel fresh.

    Playing with Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 is a satisfying experience with some seldom frustrating situations derived from choices in the design of the capture system. Combat are intense, fun and attractive, but the real focus is in the monster synthesizer, which shines.

    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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Although it may look like a game for kids, it's a quite challenging experience, with a lot of care put into it. It won't disappoint you if you're looking for some puzzles on your PS Vita.

    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.

    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.

    Dragon Quest VI is exactly what it promised to be: a return to the classic JRPG, one of the best of its genre, which remains faithful to the series' formula. It is its greatest charm, but also the greatest difficulty to attract new followers.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It was a great game on consoles and PC, and it still is a great game on mobile devices. The adaptation works perfectly, so if you haven't played it before, you have no excuse now.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It doesn't solve any of the flaws of the previous Wii adaptations, but it is still a fantastic adventure.
    • 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.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Moon is a noteworthy and solid first-person action adventure title that, despite some flaws such as excessive content repetition or some control issues -as well as a simple gameplay concept which remains unchanged through all the game-, turns out to be quite entertaining during its six hours length.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It is an unique experience, accessible and touching. If you're looking for something different, don't miss it.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It is a pleasure to play again the first game and to recover the excellent third entry in the series, which is still one of the best hack and slash games around, and even the second installment is good, if only to show how not to make a sequel. A great HD adaptation which keeps the gameplay intact and takes the game to current displays, and also includes some interesting extras. If you haven't played the originals, it is a great chance to do it.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is yet another great fighting game for Nintendo 3DS. Visually stunning and very atractive, with great gameplay and able to offer lots of hours of fun thanks to its great online mode.

    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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The new Tenchu installment will surprise positively series followers, apart from genre fans. It is a slow game in which we'll have to think twice each of our steps in order to survive. It has great hours of action and fun, and also offers a story worth being followed up to the end.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score

    Pro Cycling Manager 2010 offers everything a cycling fan would want. It has lots of variety in its game mode, a powerful graphics engine, and an overwhelming amount of options and statistics.
    • 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.

    This is one of the best RPGs on PS Vita. It's fun, has a lot of content and great characters, so if you're looking for a game of this genre, Tales of Hearts R is a great option.

    Avatar achieves something unusual: a movie-based game which is not disgusting. It is actually an interesting and very compelling title, offering a good third-persona action proposal which excels in its atmosphere.
    • 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.

    It's true that the Disgaea series hasn't made a name of itself between the mass public, and many players may be reticent to this sub genre, considering it the younger brother of the RPGs; something Disgaea 2 renders untrue.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 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.

    • 85 Critic Score
    A really enjoyable game, with direct, simple yet universal fun for everyone, which increases with the number of players. There have been a lot of games like this on the Wii, but this Namco Bandai one is one of the best.

    Wii U gets a challenging game, fun, addictive and full of surprises, that becomes one of its best downloadable titles.
    • 88 Metascore

    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.
    • 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.

    A noteworthy, yet very expensive game. Its controls are well implemented and the combat is fluid and lag free. Visually spectacular, the only thing we miss is a multiplayer mode that we hope to be included in a future update.

    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 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.

    MAG
    Mag inaugurates MMO shooters, focusing completely on massive online gameplay. It is a very attractive alternative for those looking for something different or those who always wanted to participate in an immersive global battle instead of separate skirmishes.
    • 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.
    • 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.

    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.

    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.
