    Xtreme Wheels is a good game, that despite not being original or even trying to, achieves to be entertaining and challenging thanks to its gameplay, which resembles Trials HD.

    Capcom tries it again with better results, but there is still plenty of room for improvement.

    This is one old school title which will make many remember those golden years of classic videogames. But it needs patience and thinking, and maybe many won't give it a chance.

    A decent title game a campaign that doesn't meet expectations, but with a great and unique multiplayer mode.

    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.

    There are many good ideas and intentions here, but not all of them are well implemented.

    If you're an RPG fan looking for a fresh experience, this is your game. It feels a little bit short, but it's quite original and we think it deserves a try.

    Virtua Tennis 2009 is still a great tennis game, and it arrives at the right moment, far enough from the last installment for sports fans to want a little more of Virtua Tennis. The only thing to criticize is the few changes in comparison with the last game.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is not an unoriginal game. SideQuest Studios was looking just for this, an old-school RPG, but with updated graphics. It has mixed influences and this causes some weird results, but it works despite the classic genre flaws: repetitiveness. If you like classic RPG, this game is worth every cent.

    If you have enjoyed Red Alert 3 in console, there is no reason for not buying this expansion. Not recommended for newcomers.

    It's a good action game, and it has one single aim: make sure the player has fun. It feels a little bit pricey, but it's worth checking out if you miss 90's action games.

    We were expecting much more from this final episode of the trilogy. A game that mixes excellence and fun with frustration and boredom, and that closes the story in a quite disappointing way.

    Cities XL 2011 is an astoundingly complete game, which further enhances the quality of the previous game. It has almost infinite gameplay options, and although we miss a more human approach to our inhabitants, it has incredible management options for our city.

    • 90 Critic Score
    Everything feels like a step forward, even though there are some aspects (like random tutorials or some situations in which we felt completely out of control) that we would like to see more polished. Still, a great choice for The Sims fans.

    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.

    You may think the App Store is full of games like this, but this one is full of simplicity in order to make its gameplay shine. It's racing and arcade taken to a simple, but fun and addictive level.

    This game won't turn us into killing machines, but will make us practice and exercise through combat movements, and it manages to successfully differenciate itself from the rest of fitness games.

    An entertaining game, that is only recommendable for young kids for its excessive simplicity. It uses Disney characters but doesn't make the most of the license, but can be very fun when four people play.

    Lego Indiana Jones 2 is a decent sequel, keeping the style of the original without changing the formula, which makes sure it will be enjoyed by those who liked the first game, but won't surprise anyone.

    A great idea held by its issues. We really hoped there were some improvements on the Wii U version, but it fails to deliver an engaging experience.
    • 70 Metascore

    The game is still as good as it was on PS3, and it's a great opportunity if you want a handheld version.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Even thought it's technically outstanding, this game becomes something mediocre because of its abusive free-to-play system.

    It's just more Picross, but that doesn't mean it's something bad. Quite the opposite.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    It is good and addictive, but it becomes eventually so hard that might discourage you from keep on playing. If you're up for a challenge, go ahead, otherwise keep its difficulty in mind.

    • 75 Critic Score
    It's quite good, and we enjoyed its gameplay and its team-based offer. We have to wait and see how it evolves, but the base concept leads us to think Ghost Recon Online may have a very bright future. We deeply encourage you to give it a try, especially if you like tactic action and you don't feel like spending any money.

    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.

    With two islands, a good number of luxury cars, cool environments and lots of races, Test Drive Unlimited 2 follows the path of the previous installment, and improves on it, although it doesn't change the formula.

    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.
    • 70 Metascore

    A deserved homage to Mario, but too short in extras and not adapted for current times.

    • 78 Critic Score
    Although it is a port and doesn't shine visually, it is still Resident Evil and offer great horror gameplay. The game achieves to feel dangerous, and if you have PlayStation Move, this is a great chance to enjoy two Wii classics.

    This game is aimed at young Pokémon fans. If you're older, there are better puzzles on 3DS.

    It knows how to evolve the series without losing it essence. Also, the new online features are really welcome, expanding the life of the title.

    Fans of the UFC will probably enjoy this game a lot, even though those who are new to the series will find it quite confusing. Tutorials are not as good as the should, and it lacks a training mode where practice our moves. Still, a good starting point for EA Sports.

    It has been great to enjoy a classic 3D platforming game. These sort of games have almost disappeared in this generation, except for mediocre movie adaptations. American McGee and his team have made a great game, fresh and charming.

    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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Code Name: S.T.E.A.M is yet another great game for the 3DS, accessible and challenging at the same time. We haven't been able to stop playing until we finished, and if you like the genre, we think you'll feel the same.
    • 69 Metascore

    This Formula 1 2009 is a good racing simulator that will be enjoyed by fans, although it should have arrived earlier, and we miss an online mode.
    • 69 Metascore

    Not a very convincing game. It is always attractive to become Batman in a videogame, and it is quite a good adaptation, but its gameplay falls limited and repetitive soon.
    • 69 Metascore

    Without the depth of titles like KORG DS-10 or Guitar Hero, Ultimate Band is a pretty decent musical title for Nintendo DS, its main feature being the opportunity to play any instrument using the stylus.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    A small, yet great adventure, that without having a great argument, nor complicated dialogues, has great puzzles which can be solved with astounding naturalness. It will be liked by those who love the genre, specially the nineties golden age.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Invizimals bets for creativity, illusion and fantasy. It's not an adaptation of a known formula to a different hardware, but a discovery.

    A great competitive mode for the return of Mario Tennis Open. A game for hardcore players, especially those who adore pure competition. Overall, although its new online options are great, it lacks some more single player content and we miss the excellent RPG mode the series had.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Because of the wide RPG library in PS2 and PSP, and especially on PS2 during its ten years of life, Mana Khemia can sneak modestly between hardcore Atelier Iris fans. There are not many surprises in this game, which is too conservative, but can offer some hours of fun.
    • 69 Metascore

    A true must-have game for the experimented players.
    • 69 Metascore

    Fun, deep and very complete, even though it needs some extra polishing and more variety for a better experience.

    This is the best rally game on iOS. It brings back everything the original game had and makes it work almost flawlessly on iDevices.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    It's hard, eventually hard and well designed. There's nothing outstanding, but everything is correct. However, we don't really understand why it's so focused on in-app purchases when we have already paid for it.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Has a scarce story mode and an interesting multiplayer, but uneven results in global.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A surprising and admirable game, one of the best for Xbox Live Arcade this year. If you are looking for a frantic shoot'em up you should look at other games, but those willing to explore the space in a deep and engaging game will have a lot of fun.
    • 69 Metascore

    It may have been "better" with a button-based control scheme, but then it would not have been as unique as it is.
    • 69 Metascore

    A great HD adaptation of the classic game, which fans of old-school arcades will love.
    • 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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The great news here is it is available on PS Vita, since the additions are not many. Still, it's a good game, and a great choice if it's your first game of the franchise.

    Tower of Guns is shooter where shooting is all that matters. It lacks personality, but holds some fun.

    Pitfall! manages to bring the gameplay of the original version to iOS, but it borrows –maybe too much– from other iOS/Android games like Temple Run. Apart from this, it's a fast and entertaining game, offering a very addictive and refreshing proposal on iOS. Ideal for those never-ending summer days.

    • 69 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    A noteworthy and beautiful game with no major changes or upgrades made to the original. It is a classic game and this port is very good news, but it may fall short in content taking its price into account.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Ultimately this is a good game, but it has pros and cons in nearly every aspect, and it's far from what we had been promised. Everyone expected it to be a masterpiece and it's only a good game, and some might get disappointed.

    Assasin's Creed 2: Discovery is an excellent action and platforming game which offers more than ten hours of adventure through the charming Ezio.
    • 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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    The concept is hilarious and it works great, but it feels quite short and makes you wish for a few extra levels. Still, a great experience enhanced by new control schemes on PS4.

    This is what Ninja Gaiden 3 should have been when it was first released. Tecmo and Team Ninja have listened to their fans and offered a great game, but it's still far from perfect. If you're going to play the game, make sure you play this version.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    The added content is not a reason to repurchase this game if you've already played it, but if you don't, it's a great opportunity to do so.

    Magnacarta 2 has ups and downs through all the game, and those tarnish the result of a promising game which doesn't fulfill its potential.

    Shinobi for Nintendo 3DS offers plenty of hardcore action which will be enjoyed by veteran gamers and fans of the classic games. Although the game falls in the visual side from the middle of the story, its great combat system offers plenty of fun.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Despite its flaws (some of then, like optimization, may be solvable) it still looks as a different game to us, sometimes absorbent, and an original experience everyone should have a look at.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    It is not interesting from a technical or aesthetic point of view, but compensates for it with a good development and a certain humor that covers all the story.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A good game despite its flaws. We think its release has been hurried up and two more months of development would have benefited the result greatly. Good storytelling and content, but too many flaws on the technical side of things.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It works as a Micro Machines spiritual successor, but we recommend to try it first, since it might doesn't appeal those who doesn't feel that nostalgic or no longer play with friends offline.
    • 69 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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This is not the best multiplayer game around there, neither it is better that other entries in the Battlefield saga, but it is a good effort to make the game available to a wider public.

    It's closer to FIFA 12 and there's no Ultimate Team, but indeed it's a great choice for those looking for a football game on Nintendo's new hardware. On the top of that, is the best portable version ever made if we choose the Off-TV mode and we don't go too far from the console.

    I-Fluid is a very good puzzle and platforming game. Its first approach is very interesting, as the development of most of the missions, which will make thinks very difficult for us more than twice.

    It's as long, intense and replayable as the console version, but there are few additions to this one. Still, if you didn't play it when it was first released, and if you don't mind the new path the series has taken, RE 6 is a great option.

    There are several hidden gems in here, so you might find some interesting surprises. As a collection it's as good as we expected it to be, but taking into account the price of the individual games, you should probably go for those you really need to complete your collection.

    This was a great game nine years ago, when its formula worked perfectly, but it has aged a lot and is not able to entertain so much as it did. Those who already played it in its original form won't find anything really new in this HD update, but those who didn't have here an interesting platforming game.

    As weird as it gets, Telltale returns to the card-based games to bring this unexpected sequel. It offers loads of fun and loads of unlockables, but not having multiplayer modes –and not being localized if you don't speak English– does limit the experience.

    The problem is that Bright Light has not succeeded to surprise us just like the "big version" of Need for Speed has, and Shift for PSP is an arcade game, enjoyable during some time, but not special at all.

    I Am Alive has finally arrived, and although it isn't the game it was promised to be some years ago, this is still a good action and platforming game in a post-apocalyptic world with a well-told, yet a bit generic, story and good gameplay mechanics.

    We love the game, but if you already have another Katamari game in your collection, you won't find many changes here, and it seems more like an expansion of the second game.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A game that leaves mixed sensations. It is fun and quite original, and is challenging for some times. But after the first hours it gets too repetitive, and it lacks a multiplayer mode or even online rankings. It is enjoyable and fun, and also well made, but the idea becomes limited quickly.
    • 69 Metascore

    It doesn't offer anything particularly surprising, but delivers a side-scrolling stealth-based adventure worth checking out for fans of the franchise.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The idea is good, but because of its lack of content and its repetitive nature, the novelty wears off quite soon.
