    Rise of the Tomb Raider's PC version is as good as the game itself. Lara's latest adventure is still amazing, and PC users can now enjoy it with better visuals and more control options.

    Probably a must-have for fans of the genre. Even though it doesn't make the most of Wii U's unique features, it's as good as the other console versions, and even better in some aspects.

    It's not a revolutionary title, and undoubtedly it will receive new expansions which will broad its contents, but we have no doubt this is the best title in the series, a natural evolution of a game concept which has engaged millions of users through the world.

    We feel like this is next-gen gameplay. Titanfall proves that there's still room for innovation in shooting games, and we've had a blast playing it. It could have had next-gen visuals, though, and then it would have been the bomb.

    Shootings, platforming, puzzles, exploration and a great visual experience rewrite the story – and history – of Tomb Raider. This is a beautiful adventure that everyone will enjoy, except those expecting a classic Tomb Raider game.

    Fresh air for a genre that needed it. A title with old-school gameplay evolved and adapted to current times with great results. Very fun and charming, sometimes frantic and also free-to-play. If you like non-stop triger-happy action, you should try it.
    • 86 Metascore

    A great mix of puzzles and adventure, beautiful and charming with a great story behind. One of the best apps of the moment, ideal for those who enjoy simplified graphic adventures.

    This is one of the most fun and polished games in the PSP, and offers what series followers are looking for. As in many cases, its only drawback is that we have already seen this formula many times, althought not so many in a portable console.

    Punch-Out!! is an old school game which is far from what we are used to play recently. However, definitely this is not bad news, as the game is as fun as it was then, and moreover its graphics are well updated.

    • 80 Critic Score
    This is a good retro game which isn't very deep, but also doesn't try to. It is a simple, yet addictive game, which challenges the user.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    A perfect opportunity to enjoy one of the best classic shoot'em ups. A game with a gameplay that hasn't aged, a great soundtrack and an extreme level of difficulty that results very rare today. Maybe its difficulty will become a hurdle for some gamers, but it is a must-have for those who consider themselves proud fans of the genre.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's a great expansion that takes a step forward from all we've seen previously. There are more situations in the campaign, a more competitive multiplayer and it's more accessible for new players. It's not perfect, but it'll keep us playing for a long while.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    One of the best games available on iOS, and almost on any other portable device. It vanishes the line between portable devices and portable video game systems. A beautiful and entertaining story and a rich gaming offer, together with its stunning graphics, make Horn worth it of any iDevice.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    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.

    One of the best IPs Nintendo has done recently. It's fresh, clever and challenging and the only thing we could ask for is a "Rotblox" where we can 'rotate' the pieces!

    The latest Mortal Kombat is, in our opinion, the best in the series so far. This is more ambitious than the previous ones, has a perfect roster of fighters and offers more content than any other fighting game.

    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Compared to the original one, there's more content and fun, even though being free to play is something not everyone will like. However, it lives up to the expectation, and does deserve a try.

    Year after year, it's getting hard for Ubisoft to create something worth our time and money, but this episode is one of the best we've played. No matter if you can't wait to get your hands on your game, of if you're tired of the series, you should give this one a try.

    • 96 Critic Score
    A great game that manages to be on par with other third-person action games like Gears of War and Uncharted, keeping part of the personality of the first two games in the series and adding great new mechanics that will surprise every player. It also tells a very good story thanks to the charming and complicated personality of Max.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider takes what we loved about the franchise's reboot and makes it bigger and better. A great combination of gameplay elements that you shouldn't miss if you enjoyed the previous Tomb Raider.

    A great evolution of the franchise. It no longer feels like the experiment that was the first one, but like a great experience full of personality, with an outstanding gameplay and full of content.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    This is the best version so far, but also the less innovative. It feels like EA Sports is absolutely focused on next gen consoles, so there are few additions here. However, it is as fun as always, and the best football simulator this year for current consoles.

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

    SteamWorld Heist is a great turn-based strategy game: long and replayable. Taking into account it's not the most popular genre on consoles, we're sure many players we'll be happy with this title.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It expands itself from a very solid base, and adds the content fans needed to feel comfortable and keep enjoy the series.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It still is one of the best hack & slash we've seen, even though there are few additions to play it again if you've already beaten it. One way or another, this is the best version of the original Bayonetta.

    • 90 Critic Score
    This is basically more Final Fantasy XIV, and that's great news. We miss something really surprising or innovative, but still, this is a great experience that lives up to the expectation of Final Fantasy's 14th episode.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Not an evolution of the series but a step forward indeed. Good for playing "seriously" or just for fun, with a solid base that allows the developers to include crazy ideas that actually fit in the game. The track list is, as well, as good as we expected.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is an outstanding game, as is its PS4 version. It feels like a proper game of the series with enough content to justify its subscription model.

    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.

    Bungie makes Destiny better than ever, building on the solid foundations it already had. If you missed it the first time, it's a great moment to find out what it has to offer. If you already played it, it will tweak the experience to make you want to go back at it.

    FEF: Birthright is the best episode to get to know this series. It's more accessible, but it still has the depth and complexity you find in other episodes. No matter if you know the franchise already or not, it's a game you'll enjoy from the very first minute to the very last.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
