    This is just a great example of how to evolve classic ideas to make them feel fresh. Guacamelee! is one of those games you will play till you finish it.

    It's as strong as always, but you can feel this generation is coming to an end, and its really hard to make a significant evolution. In any case, it perfect for any basketball fan.

    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 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.

    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.

    Battlefield 1943 focuses on multiplayer, and achieves a great level of quality. Classic, well-made and fun as soon as some friends join in, it is a sure bet provided we are going to have war partners.

    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.

    • 93 Critic Score
    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.

    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.

    Despite some flaws we would like to see fixed, Gran Turismo 5 offers simulation and many hours of entertainment. Anyone who has enjoyed the series should buy the game; it is not only the number one driving game, but also more complete than previous entries. A machine ready to race.

    Trine 2 is a lesson of how a great game should be. Action, platforming, puzzles, an impressive visual design, a great soundtrack, amazing level design and one of the best cooperative modes, both local and online, we have seen in a very long time.

    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. More tracks, vehicles and multiplayer options thanks to the inclusion of the social system Autolog, and also better physics and simulation, which have improved the right way. It is not a perfect simulation experience, but will please most gamers.

    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.

    It still is as good as we remember it. If you've already played it on Wii there are not too many reasons to play it again, but if you missed it, you've got in front of you one of the best platformers we've seen in the last few years.

    Darksiders II is better than we expected, we just loved it. It offers tons of content to keep us playing for many many hours, and proves that you don't need to reinvent the wheel to create something new and full of personality. As a game it is excellent and generous with the player, so if you liked the first game, then you should now the wait was worth it. If you miss the original Darksiders, please give this a try. To sum up, it's just one of the adventures of the year. A must-have.

    A must-have for fans of the Phoenix Wright series, as it is even better than those, and not very recommended for those who don't have much patience or don't like very much to read, as sometimes there is a lot of story to be told. Everyone who likes graphic adventure games should try it for its originality and surprising plot.

    A special game, but different to its elder siblings. Those who are looking for an adaptation of the mechanics of Total War on PC will be disappointed, but this iOS concept is fun, quick and simple to understand. Maybe not what fans of the series were expecting, but still a good strategy game.

    The setting change works well, and the story will please series followers, with surprises and comebacks which will thrill Resident Evil fans.

    Exactly what we expected. The campaign struggles to surprise, but the multiplayer and zombie modes have been greatly improved, and they are the ones to credit for making it an outstanding title.

    If you like challenging games and retro gameplay this is a game to watch, and you probably have been expecting something like this for a lot of time.

    A perfect example of how to make a remake.

    This is easily the best game in the series and one of the most recommended buys of the launch portfolio of the PSVITA.

    We have liked Resistance 3 a lot and consider it the best entry in the series. Although the campaign doesn't mantain the same level of engagement through the whole story, it is very enjoyable, varied and full of intense moments.

    It has all the virtues we can expect from an indie game. If you're going to play with friends you'll make the most of it, since playing on your own makes the game losing some of its appeal.
