    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.

    Surprisingly good, it offers a great free-to-play experience with dozens of hours of fun ahead. There are some technical issues waiting to be solved, but if the studio, the publisher and the players support PlanetSide 2, the future of PlanetSide 2 could be really bright.

    A gift for fans of both series and fighting games players. A deep, technical and solid game that integrates perfectly the mechanics of both series. A huge piece of work that is a dream come true for those fans who have been expecting a crossover like this for years.

    It has attractive game modes and a better control, but we can only recommend this game if you don't have a Xbox 360 or a PlayStation 3.

    The game maintains its virtues intact: good plot, great gameplay and an attractive artistic design. The technical improvements also help it narrow the time gap between today and the original's release.

    • 86 Critic Score
    This title should have existed since two years ago, and for the future it has to improve its graphics and gameplay a little bit (including the safety car as an option). But from what we've seen in this first installment, the future looks bright.

    Sound Shapes is one of those downloadable jewels for platforming and music fans. Its only flaw is that it is a bit short in the campaign mode, but it compensates for it with several challenge options and a comprehensive editor. One of the most original PSN games in months.

    The setting change works well, and the story will please series followers, with surprises and comebacks which will thrill Resident Evil fans. Resident Evil 5 offers a quality experience, despite some incongruities - all of them can be overlood -, which will engage us in front of the TV for hours, thanks to its gameplay and its high doses of action, tension and fun.

    Not just a game for God of War lovers, or for those who didn't play the PSP original, but also one of the best action games in the PlayStation 3, in spite of its graphics, that have been well updated, but look dated in comparison with other games.

    This is a great, fresh open world action adventure game, with a very well-implemented Nemesis system. It's an outstanding surprise, and we think it deserves a try.

    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.

    The very same game we played almost ten years ago, now it's been adapted to fit almost every pocket. This version comes with visual upgrades and adapted touch controls, and becomes an unmissable opportunity for those wanting to go back to San Andreas.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Capcom enhances again its blockbuster, although perhaps the new features are not worth the price. If you have not played the previous SF4 versions, this is the best chance to try the return of the classic fighter.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    It's not an app that will reinvent the genre, but it offers good graphics, nice physics and well-designed levels. There's no revolution here, but it's interesting for both kids and adults.

    You will love Football Manager 2012 if you liked the 2011 version, but you can also think that the new features are not that worthy. If it is your first game in the series, or you have been away for a while, it is a very recommended football management simulator.

    The most complete version so far is one of those games you don't want to miss if you've just bought your new Wii U. Beautiful and deep, Trine 2 is as good as we've seen it on other platforms.

    • 84 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 84 Metascore

    The Walking Dead: Episode 2 - Starved for Help is a very satisfying game and its only flaws are technical. It keeps the same gameplay than the first game, but Telltalte has managed to give the script a twist for it to feel different and surprise us again. Three hours of pure fun, a must have for comic fans.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.

    Although it has lost part of the impact of the previous game, Guerrilla Games has again achieved a great first-person shooter, greatly improving the campaign mode and emphasizing its personality.

    Definitely a step forward, but still it doesn't surprise. This is the common problem of the annual series, but we need to make it clear that this episode means an improvement compared to F1 2011. Now, if you have the last episode it's up to you to decide whether the new one is worth it. If you don't, it's a wonderful racing game and the best F1 title we've seen in years.

    This new edition takes important steps forward. The tires are more important and the different types are more noticiable when driving, and the addition of DRS and more strategy options changes the way to race. It has also added much needed features like the safety car or the possibility to manage the whole Grand Prix event, from the free training durint Friday to the race on Sunday. It still has plenty of room for improvement and it is not the perfect simulator yet, but Formula 1 fans will be pleased again by this product.

    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.

    Criterion just did it again. This is one of the best driving games we've seen in the last few years. Full of content and with many hours of fun waiting for us, no matter if we're playing alone or online. It shows that probably the only way to improve an open-world title is waiting for a more powerful hardware, since Criterion can only beat itself. Definitely a must-have.

    A 3D third-person shooter, surprisingly fresh and addictive with many customizable options for our character. Not very original or visually stunning, but still very enjoyable. The lack of campaign mode and its price are the two things customers might consider negative, but it is definitely one of the best games of this genre on iOS.
    • 84 Metascore

    We like the way the comic book has been adapted to a videogame. It is faithful to the essence of Robert Kirkman work and, although it offers a different story, it will captivate us. If you don't know the comic books you will also like this game, as its gameplay is quite unique an succesfully blends adventure, action and story telling, with a very interesting choice system.

    Maybe we could have waited for some new features from Obsidian, apart for the scenario change and some new improvements in gameplay. But you could also ask why change something that works so well. The recommendation is clear: If you liked Fallout 3, don't hesitate in getting New Vegas.

    This new edition of Dragon Quest is with no doubt one of the best RPG titles up to date in the console portfolio. Despite that it is basically an old title, with a very classic game system that doesn't take advantage of the Nintendo DS possibilities, and an improved yet retro technical aspect, nonetheless it was and remains being a milestone in the RPG genre history.

    It is not a revolution for sandbox games, but it makes the most of their possibilities to make crazy and fun things, in an open world full of cool and bizarre features. Those who are looking for a compelling story should consider other games, but Saints Row: The Third is the best in providing crazy fun.

    This is an unique title, above all in the West. It's worth a try, and will manage to keep us playing for a long while. On the top of that, getting all the endings may take around 30 hours, so if you like this kind of games, this one is definitely a must have.

    Shift 2: Unleashed builds upon the firm base of the previous game and offers more features and better features.
