    This is a very fun and accessible title, but only for children.

    A noteworthy game that proposes us to become snipers, and quite succesfully achieves it. Not a game for everyone, only for those who are willing to be patient, love stealth and want to enjoy every shot as something unique. It is not a very complex simulator and everyone can try and enjoy it, but it is realisticly enough to become a challenge.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a great visual upgrade that remains the playable foundations almost untouched, but feels quite easy and short. However, if you enjoyed the original, it should feel like a great experience.

    A "blast from the past" not everyone will enjoy, but that certainly has a lot of fun to give to those looking for a classic action game.

    Penumbra: Requiem has an approximate durability of about five hours and is a fun puzzle game, with some really clever and absorbing puzzles.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It is far from the tactic and realism approach of previous games of the series, but it is accesible for more players, and has a robust online component.

    Variety is the word that defines Nier the best. Variety of genres and game styles which compose an epic, fantastic and full of action adventure.

    Dracula: Undead Awakening is an intense and frantic action and shooting game, but it doesn't offer much more than that.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Motocross fans cannot miss this game, and those looking for two-wheel action should take it into account. A great simulator you can make as demanding as you want.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 66 Critic Score
    Good ideas, but not so well implemented. The concept works but it's not as motivating as it should, and with so many alternatives in the platforming/puzzle genre, you need a game as engaging as possible. Still, those attracted by its concept should give it a try.
    • 67 Metascore

    One of the most original games we saw last year on PC turns out as a very interesting iOS experience. If you can deal with what being a surgeon means, then go ahead.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Those looking for something new on Kinect will find this game simple but refreshing. It has plenty of durability and can become challenging sometimes, and motion detection works very well, although physics are not as spectacular as they should be. It lacks some charm and originality, but it is one of the best downloadable titles for Kinect.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A classic and rudimentary game in spirit, which we think will satisfy a very specific public looking exactly for that. But the rest should decide carefully and try before buying, as the game is as its demo, but for six hours instead of twenty minutes.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure is not a bad game within its genre. On the contrary: despite its age and some aspect with are obsolete in comparison with more recent RPG titles, the game is still enjoyable as much as when its original installment came out ten years ago.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Cursed Mountain is a good choice against those great survival series available on the shelves, with a particular rhythm and an original atmosphere.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The visuals are somehow weak, but pretty much everything else is really, really strong. And that's what matters. If you've ever played Worms and liked it, you've got no excuse not to try this one.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The idea is good, but the gameplay isn't. We still hoping for an update where everything is balanced and improved, including its free-to-play system.

    This is what Ninja Gaiden 3 should have been when it was first released. It's still far from perfect, but it brings back some of the feelings the series used to have.
    • 67 Metascore

    Even though it occasionally gets quite simple, it is absorbing and really challenging on the hardest difficulties.

    Stepping away from the path of the main series, Ubisoft brings a complete mobile game that looks great and plays better, and becomes a good choice no matter if you’re looking for a complementary experience for AC IV or an individual one.

    Ultimately, Neopets can be interesting for those fans of the franchise who want to breed in a different way their pets, or for extremely casual or low age players who are seeking a light entertainment.

    • 76 Critic Score
    Ultimately, Codename Panzers: Cold War is a very good real time strategy game that delivers enough in all its aspects, but doesn't offer something brand new. Although enjoying the intense action of the game is satisfying, it will often look as it we had been there before.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    We keep liking Phoenix Wright, but this version is not as technically advanced as we expected, and you have to decide if the pleasure of enjoying the story compensates that limitation.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    It is better than Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, so those who liked that one will like this new installment. But those unconvinced by the previous game won't change their opinion with this new entry, as it improves on it, but doesn't evolve or change much.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A typical expansion which adds new options and missions to the main game and is a good choice for series followers. Although it adds new content, it doesn't bring anything really new in graphics or gameplay mechanics, so those looking for new things to do should think twice.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    This is a perfect example of a free-to-play title. There's all the content available, and paying for anything is just an option rather than an imposition. On the top of that, is fun, entertaining and full of options.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Just fun in a straight-forwarded way. Having dinosaurs is one of the key elements that makes it different and enjoyable, however, we think there's no enough content to keep us playing after a few hours.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    A great choice if you're looking for a challenge, although, be warned, since it will definitely test your patience. If you know what you're going to face, then you won't regret it.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's yet another strategy game, and even if it feels sometimes a bit chaotic, it does deserve your attention if you're a fan of the series.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The concept is OK, but difficulty and the progression system are not properly developed and worsen what could have been a much better Adventure Time experience.
    • 67 Metascore

    Despite not being an ambitious game, we have liked a lot this MySims SkyHeroes. It is a direct and fun game that allows anyone to play without complications.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    One of the last RE games loyal to the classic formula of the series, that still offers a great and thrilling story despite its aged controls.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A very intense, yet very short game which will be enjoyed by action fans, even if they are not fans of the Warhammer universe. It is incredibly fun, but it lacks more duration and an online mode.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Joy Ride Turbo is a good karting game that eliminates Kinect from the ecuation, thus improving control. However, it is still too simple and lacks content, and doesn't bring anything really new to the genre. Despite this, it can bring quite a lot of fun.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Backed by a quality studio, Battle Fantasia is an interesting fighting game which can result risky at times. It has some RPG elements, although shallow, which change some of the more typical aspects of its genre, and only a dozen characters. The advantage is that there are no filler characters, but a larger line-up would have favoured the game with more variety.
    • 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.

    Following in the steps of Tomb Raider and Deus Ex, an old franchise returns fresh, accessible to a wider audience, but still remains true to its origins.

    Harmony of Despair works as a multiplayer game for series followers, but won't convince the rest of the players easily.

    • 74 Critic Score
    Although the game is very similar to other Dynasty Warriors titles, Next surprises with a touch control that works quite well and a remarkable number of enemies in screen without losing graphic quality. If you like the series this is a good acquisition for the PSVITA.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    This is a very fun and accessible title, but only for children.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It has all the elements to be a success, but if fails to mix them properly. The concept is original and we think it deserves a try, but it's a shame it doesn't get it right.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It brings many great ideas, but not all of them are successfully applied. Anyway, it's entertaining and addictive, and will have you playing for a long time if you like the genre.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    A surprisingly interesting card-based game, worth giving a try if you like the genre and/or Uncharted, of course.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Resident Evil 6 offers a huge variety of situations, full of surprises and unforgettable moments, but there's only a tiny bit of the survival horror it once was. However, no matter the relationship between you and Resident Evil, we believe you should try RE6. As imperfect as ambitious, as frenetic as fun, it's a solid proof that Japan still knows how to make games.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not the great return we were expecting, but it is definitely a great game. The experience is partially ruined by some technical mistakes, the low difficulty and the poor final part of the story. However, it manages to keep us engaged with a great narrative, the variety of locations and the interesting implementation of the puzzles.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The strategic action and management combination that The Godfather 2 proposes is a remarkable formula, but also risky. Maybe it won't be able to convince gamers looking for an action game, nor those looking for strategy, but our feeling is that ultimately this is an action game -a good one- with interesting strategy elements, more than the contrary.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Two Worlds II is a very complete RPG which substantially improves the original game, engaging us in a fantasy world. Its huge and atractive environments, simple and direct gameplay, and the variety of things available to be done in the Antaloor universe are some of the great virtues of and adventures oriented both to genre veterans and newcomers.

    This Asobo Studios game is a good entry in the racing genre, although some aspects, specially the audiovisual part, could have been better.

    Fragile caught our attention from the beginning because we noticed something that made it special. Unfortunately, although it is still quite special, it has important problems with make it less from what could have been.

    It is better than Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, so those who liked that one will like this new installment. But those unconvinced by the previous game won't change their opinion with this new entry, as it improves on it, but doesn't evolve or change much.
    • 67 Metascore

    The game has an interesting artistic design and quite an original gameplay concept, but it has its limitations, lacks a tutorial and becomes simple and repetitive soon.

    Monster Life is the perfect game for those who loved Viva Piñata!. Gameloft doesn't hide its influences, bringing an almost identical gameplay from the very beginning. It has its own features though, like the RPG features. It relies on the idea of buying coins in order to progress faster, but there's no real need to do so, and we won't need them if we organize the way we play. You may dislike the free-2-play model, but if you like Viva Piñata! it's worth trying.

    Although maybe it is not as good as the game it is inspired by, Game Arts has made a splendid job with its own personality.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    This game has not received too much attention, but the mix of ideas put into it does deserve it. We recommend to at least try it, since it has a demo available.

    This new Mario & Sonic olympic game isn't going to surprise anyone for its new features, but the game has improved and offers improved gameplay for everyone. Although we miss an Olympic mode like in the previous game, the new London For Everyone is a great addition and provides hours of fun.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Double Dragon Neon is just enough. Its gameplay mistakes may ruin the experience for those who want to live the original experience again. We may enjoy playing cooperative modes, but it's definitely a poor tribute to such a classic game. Not recommended unless you're a big fan of the franchise.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A good platforming game and a good start for Sonic in the 3DS. It is different from the HD versions, so it is a good options for Sonic fans to complement the main Generations game. Its only flaws are its limited duration and the disappointing design of some stages.

    There are many other options for PSP out there, so unless you're a fan of the character or you're looking for a brand new game to enjoy on this handheld, there are no too many reasons to highlight this title.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are some issues that prevent it from becoming a better game, but still it delivers a good feeling that fans of the original game will enjoy.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A game that recovers that "Tamagotchi" spirit and offers a simple and fun experience that lets you breed your own monster and use it to face battles. It lacks some options, especially in customization and control, but is a fun game for the price it asks.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although with certain aspects that should be improved –the lack of scoreboards, for example– it's a really addictive concept that manages to turn hours into minutes.

    Just like last year edition, Kinect Sports is a good option to have a good time solo and with another player, and online games can be really competitive and fun. It is also a nice fitness game which indicates to you the amount of calories you are burning.

    Maybe saying that this is currently the best helicopter simulation game is not the greatest of the praise due the lack of competition, but certainly it is an enjoyable game.

    Although a bit expensive, it is a fun and addictive game, although it can get repetitive soon.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It becomes another horror game, where the fact of being a baby is kind of irrelevant, which is a shame taking into account this was its most distinctive aspect. It's short, but it does have some good moments though, so we think it deserves a try if you like the genre.

    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fascinating game. Simple and effective, long and full of content. The game knows how to deal with the player and manages its difficulty in an excellent way. Recommended if you're looking for a new challenge, a platform that makes you think or an original puzzle game.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    It's fun and entertaining, but there are some issues that we would like to see fixed. We can't deny, though, it has the potential to keep us killing monsters for a long while, no matter if alone or online, which is more than what many games can offer.

    Patrician IV is a good sequel of the venerated Patrician III. Maybe it is too conservative in its general aspects, but it consistently improves every area in gameplay.

    A fun minigame compilation with some of the most loved characters in videogames. More than fifty minigames which make an exhaustive use of all the control possibilites of the console, some of them very original. Although not all the minigames have the same quality and you will easily hate a dozen of them, it is easy to find your favorites and have a great time trying to surpass your own records. Its major flaw is the absence of a game mode that challenges us differently.

    Overall Spyborgs is a good game, although somewhat far from what Capcom promised. It is a fun game, although it becomes repetitive, above all by an unbalanced gameplay and the seldom sensation of not knowing well what is happening.

    A good strategy game which fans of the first game will like, despite not evolving too much the formula of the original. Those who didn't like the first game won't like this sequel either, but it offers a much more polished gameplay, great management and strategy options, and it makes us feels inside the legend.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's nothing too original, but still fun for some short sessions. Still, we feel its free-to-play model a little bit abusive, something not everyone is going to enjoy.
