    Looks good, plays good and its free-to-play system is fair and well-balanced. It has everything to bring its success from PC to mobile devices.

    This retrospective is pleasing, and it doesn't reserve resources to offer new challenges, reinventing itself constantly.

    It is good for a game not to take itself too seriously and let the player participate in its eccentric craziness.

    A great version of the original Xbox title, with some visual improvements that make it look great on the PlayStation Vita screen. Recommended for those who missed the original game or just for those who want to play a better version on a handheld.

    The base is great, but an unfair free-to-play system means a negative impact we hope will be reconsidered in the future.

    Telltale proves they can adapt their narrative skills to almost any franchise, and brings us one of the best first episodes we've seen in any of their series.

    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. The game makes a great use of sci-fy weapons to create interesting situations, and its online multiplayer has a lot of options. One of the best shooters of the year.

    If you enjoyed the first game you will find in this sequel the classic formula: more and better, but with few additions or new features. Apart from this, this is a great game, and you can try the demo before deciding a purchase.
    • 83 Metascore

    A compilation with no positive or negative surprises, that will allow newcomers to discover the origin of the series, and seasoned players to enjoy the first games again in an updated fashion.

    A simple but extremely addictive concept is what makes of Picross 3D a great puzzle game.

    Once again, digital distribution allows an original idea to be realized, a combination of puzzle and platforms which works very well in this distribution system, with a price that wouldn't have been possible through traditional channels.

    Console users have no reason to get this PC version, since its improvements are just a few visual settings. Still, it's a great hack & slash for those who missed it on PS3 or Xbox 360.

    It may dissapoint those who expected a 3D Metroidvania, but it's one of the best action games of this year.

    Darksiders is above all a very comprehensive game. It fits elements from many other games, without going in depth in any of them nor having its own style, but maintaining a balance which makes it a great action-adventure game.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It offers almost a perfect balance between gameplay, difficulty and graphics. There are certain aspects that could have been improved, but still it's a very recommended game.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Brilliant. It's original, addictive and has loads of contents. It brings the original formula to the iDevices and improves it, offering one of the best role and strategy games we've seen for iOS.

    Obviously, it doesn't match the technical standards of the "bigger" versions, but it does deliver the Titanfall experience.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 83 Metascore

    This sequel improves upon the original and will please both classic action and sandbox fans. The campaign is lengthy and the game includes a level editor which will be loved by the community.

    Outland has enough virtues to be remembered as one of the best platforms games of the year. If you like the genre this is a must-have.

    It is difficult to keep the quality of a series, but Gameloft manages to do it with this sequel, which has interesting additions like an improved control system, enhanced graphics and a more complete multiplayer.

    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.

    Runic Games has created a game charming enough to engage us for hours.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It is a very fun adventure, a must-have for those who have a Nintendo DS and have never tried a Professor Layton adventure. For those who did, the formula keeps working and engaging, but they'll have the feeling of having playing this before, although the story of the game will keep them going forward.

    This is the great, solid experience we played last year, but improved in many ways. One of the best basketball games we've ever played.

    A milestone for PSVITA, and one of the best portable games in the last years. It offers fresh and new ideas, and is a must-have for PSVITA owners.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Charming, fun and full of colour, one of those titles you can play smiling and approachable by everyone. But to make the most of the game and achieve a perfect score in every trial, you will have to spend a lot of hours. For those newcomers that haven't tried a Rhythm game, it will be a pleasant surprise.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It is not as surprising as the first game, but it is again a fun, complete and well made arcade game that becomes one of the best Arcade titles of the year.

    A Tower Defense is not the most original game, but this one adds its own personality and makes it worth it for the fans of the genre.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Although it doesn't have many changes in comparison with the Xbox 360 original, and the game has aged during a year, it still one of the best action games out there.

    • 90 Critic Score
    Sleeping Dogs is a very good sandbox game, even though there are two things some players may complain about: its lack of personality and the lack of innovation. If you're OK with this, then this game has a lot to offer, from many hours of fun to a engaging story. Sleeping Dogs is, above all, a great surprise full of entertainment and quality. Definitely worth trying.

    Music games fans can fall in love with Ryhthm Heaven, or just the contrary, because its proposal is very different in comparison with most of the musical games in the market today.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Yes, it is quite "similar" to some other games out there. However it's almost infinite, full of possibilities and very fun. Might be hard to play on small devices, but being free we think it deserves a try.

    Stacking is a fresh and original game, full of fun situations which challenge us to solve puzzles that require some intellectual effort.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    This version improves the control of the original, expands its levels and offers interesting alternative modes, enhancing an already superb game. It has lost online functions, which is a minor flaw but distances this game from perfection.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    A game for everyone, for those who like quick game sessions and also for those who are looking for challenges. Easy to play but very deep and challenging, this experiment of turning Kirby into a Pikmin army is great.

    Alan Wake is an entertaining game experience, with and engaging narrative and full of nights of terror.

    With a simple concept, Dragon Quest Wars is a surprisingly deep turn-based strategy game, specially taking into account the prejudices about digital content.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A game which is not for everyone, but will inspire many with its great atmosphere and thrilling story. This PC version has improved visuals but lacks a better optimization. The controls have also been adapted decently, but with room for improvement.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An independent game that retains it soul in the 3DS. It is a hard game with a remarkable retro flavour, and an unique and very deep gameplay mechanic thanks to its great level design. Maybe some players won't understand the graphics or won't enjoy dying so many times, but those pure videogame lovers will enjoy VVVVVV a lot.

    It's true that the Disgaea series hasn't made a name of itself between the mass public, and many players may be reticent to this sub genre, considering it the younger brother of the RPGs; something Disgaea 2 renders untrue.

    • 95 Critic Score
    This is a game you cannot miss. The whole game offers more than many retail titles, for only 1,200 Microsoft Points. The visuals are stunning, the battle system is entertaining and there's many maps for us to explore. We can conclude by saying that it's one of the best games on Xbox Live Arcade.

    This is one of those title hardcore gamers have been asking for. It's like those old school games you played for ages until you got better, so, if this is the challenge you're looking for, go for it.

    The series evolves in the right direction, enhancing the possibilities and creating a coherent gameplay, where the protagonists –both the physical and the virtual ones– are more important than ever.

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive brings back all the fun and entertainment we've always gotten from this series. More action, with updated visuals and a great price. We would have liked some good new additions, since the new modes are no rival for the classic competitive one. CS: Global Offensive doesn't take the franchise a step further, but it still is Counter-Strike.

    BlazBlue for PSVITA is as good as in the rest of consoles. It has a great fighter roster, plenty of game modes, a good story and a captivating visual design. But especially, its gameplay is deep and engaging. If you can buy the PS3 or 360 version we still recommend them as you can use an arcade stick with them, but if you want to fight wherever you are this should be your choice.

    This episode of the Ys series is a great example of what a RPG game is supposed to be. It offers the depth some users look for, and also the accessibility some others do. A great addition to the PS Vita's catalogue.

    Dance Central is probably the best dancing game ever made, as it captures all of our movements, allowing us to dance with our legs and feet. But it not only has a technology that works, but also a great presentation and lots of content.

    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.

    It doesn't have as many options as the original PC title, but it keeps the same essence. It is still Minecraft and the implementation of the control is great, one of the main concerns with this adaptation. It lacks some options the PC version already has included, like the RPG elements and the possibility to apply mods and skins, but it is much more friendly for novice users thanks to its tutorial and the revamped object system.

    Resident Evil Revelations mixes action with adventure, partially returning to the origins of the series. It is a must-have for console owners, and one of the pinnacles of visual quality we've seen so far in the Nintendo 3DS.

    Just another step forward of the series, without relevant additions, but still recommended for any Professor Layton fan or for those who want to try it for the very first time. However, we really hope Level 5 will manage to surprise us with the next episode before the whole series get stuck.

    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.

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

    As we have already said, Henry Hatsworth is one of the best and biggest surprise the Nintendo DS has given us in this year. Its excellent and varied gameplay is its best argument to understand its success between the critic and the public, apart from its fun story and its unlimited addictivity, thanks to combining two concepts: puzzles and platforms.
