    Even though it's aimed at fans of the franchise, this title is an outstanding 2D fighting game, deep and fun that fans of the genre will enjoy too.

    A bit short for one player, but with an impressive cooperative mode which compensates for. Simply put, Sam Fisher has in Conviction its best iteration since the first entry of the series.

    An original, fun and entertaining app that is above most of the games in the App Store. Its gameplay is direct and its control great, and is also beatifully crafted in graphics.

    It's hard to find weaknesses in this game. If you don't like it probably it's just because you'd rather play something else. But Ni No Kuni is way more than just pretty graphics or a nice story: it's one of the best RPGs on PlayStation 3.

    A great adaptation of the classic arcade game, with almost all the features of the home version, great graphics and good 3D effect.

    As an adaptation, it's somewhere between PS3 and Xbox 360, but one way or another it's an outstanding game. However, it's quite weird playing the end of a story, no matter how many comics we find along the way.

    It seems like we will have to wait some time to see more armies, as it happened in the first game. Even though, this is one of the most recommended acquisitions of this year, and one of those titles that no strategy devotee should let escape.

    Battlefield 3 is a great multiplayer game, despite the problems with the console version. However, if you are interested in the game for its single-player mode, we can't hardly recommend it. But if you are looking for a multiplayer game different from the others on consoles, this is a sure bet with many hours of fun.

    Instead of improving the visuals, 2K Sports creates a completely new game that you cannot miss if you like basketball and you're getting a next-gen console.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It is fun to play with the environment physics, and the freedom to destroy every building in the game, but it flaws in its progression, which lacks freshness. In fact, had the script been better built, and with greater variety, this would have been an unbeatable game.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The same experiences we've enjoyed on other consoles, keeping all its strengths and weaknesses. There's little use of the GamePad, but Ubisoft didn't want to force the experience.

    If you liked Calamity Trigger, Continuum Shift offers the same style, but polished to the extreme refinement.
    • 85 Metascore

    • 85 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    A weird experience, short, unique and disturbing. A mix of action and strategy that will absorb you and won't let you stop until you finish it. Not for everyone, but absolutely recommended for those players looking for something new.

    LocoRoco 2 wisely takes the torch of the first installment and succeeds again in PSP with an original title, fresh (though with the same basis than the first one) and extremely entertaining.

    It looses freedom of movement, but gains spectacle. Whether you are a fan of the original game or not, if you like first-person shooters you'll love this great game.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    There's no reason to buy it again if you've already played it on PC, but if you haven't you're missing one of the biggest surprises of the indie scene. A game like no other, fun and addictive.

    A great game, full of details that make it shine every time we play. Forza Horizon needs many hours to make the most of it, but just a few minutes to start enjoying it. It also proves that an open-world title could be as deep, profound and interesting as any other game.

    We've never had so much fun with a video game before. If you like RPGs and/or the TV show –especially the latter– this is a game you cannot miss. This is just the best adaptation from a TV series to a video game ever made.

    The best Assassin's Creed and one of the best games of the year. Bigger and better, and still an Assassin's Creed. It takes the core of the series and takes it to a whole new level in almost every aspect. It provides dozens of hours of gameplay, and, if you forgive some technical issues, you'll be in front of one of the best adventures we've seen in the last few years.

    Dark Souls is definitely an absolutely great game, and it proves you can attract a big audience by offering an unusually high difficulty. New content, a high-res fixes and some other improvements are the reasons why this version is the best of the three available. It's not the best PC adaptation, but it is an experience worth playing.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 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.

    A fun sequel, full of great ideas and changes in gameplay, that repeates the success of the first game. A simple and addictive aplication recommended for those who played the first one or newcomers who want to try something fun.

    Perhaps the guys at Treyarch haven't surpassed its predecessor's bar, but it really was too high. Nevertheless, this does not mean Call of Duty: World at War is not a very good game, it is indeed one of the best of its genre, and no shooter fan should miss it.

    Fun and very satisfying, Four Swords Anniversary Edition focus on multiplayer, but also offers a new option, to play it solo, a fantastic addition. It is a pity that there ist not an online mode in the game, yer another chance lost by Nintendo to gear up the series.

    • 88 Critic Score
    Highly recommended for 2D fighting fans, a must-have for those who enjoyed the previous game, an excellent chance to return to a genre for those who left it years ago, and also a good option for many to discover a new style of game, through a charming roster of characters.

    The rebirth of the NBA Jam series has found his ideal channel of distribution, with a new version which returns to the classic style of the original arcade. It has many changes in comparison with the game of last year, and it drops some of its features, but adds others which compensates for. A very interesting option with a good price.

    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.

    Impeccable gameplay that will be loved by fans, in a great new entry of the Mario Kart series. We only miss some more options and flexibility in the online modes, and more content for the single player mode. A must-have for Nintendo 3DS owners.

    Fans of mixed martial arts will find a must-have in UFC Undisputed, a very complex and demanding game with lots of content.

    Although there are things to be improved in the online game of Marvel vs Capcom 2, this title is as fun as it was in 2000, and that's quite a thing to say about a videogame.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    Its new contents are not that important, but will enhance durability for solo players. Its major flaws are the downgrade in graphics and the absence of PlayStation 3 compatibility: you'll have to unlock everything again if you had done it on the PS3. A great fighting game with charming personality that fans of the series will love.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It is the best version of the game out there when it comes to content and experience, but the framerate makes it hard to enjoy sometimes. If you haven't played the game before, it's one of the best adventures you'll see in a while.

    If you didn't play it on Xbox and you're looking for just plain fun, this is a great choice. There's no great improvement over the Xbox version, but this isn't really a problem… it will manage anyway to keep you playing for hours.

    Its innovative visuals and its daring and well-made gameplay features make it not only a great action-adventure game but also a genre refreshing title.

    It is not "Fable" and it does not try to be, it just takes these elements and combines them with some others to create very fun videogame, with its own personality and a well-achieved and told story, perfectly integrated with its gameplay. A more than recommended buy.

    It is the same great game we enjoyed six years ago, but visually upgraded. Its gameplay hasn't aged, and its levels are still varied and thrilling. We only miss a retail edition including this game and Code Veronica HD, just like in Japan, as the digital download can be considered pricey by many players.
