    Any fan of the series should be considering buying this game, as long as they don't mind the lack of physical version or not being translated into any other language but English. There's little innovation here, but it's addictive, fun and satisfying.

    After a few years, the PSP sequel finally arrives to the West, with good options to expand the original experience. Definitely a great option for those looking for a RPG-ish, different experience.

    A great title with the best multiplayer we've seen on this console so far. There are some framerate issues, but if you're a FPS fan, then this is a must have.

    With several interesting additions, this is one of the puzzle games you cannot miss, especially if you liked the original.

    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.

    Ultimately, a noteworthy racing game, which genre fans will enjoy. Even for those who are not fans of the movies this is an enjoyable racing game.

    Tales of Monkey Island is one of the mos frantic and fun adventures out there, specially from the third chapter. Telltale Games has not resurrected Guybrush just to make profits, but to create a new set of adventures that work perfectly.

    • 89 Critic Score
    A game you cannot miss now if you missed it the first time. The visual evolution is worth highlighting, but it still is an outstanding title in every other aspect.

    Yet another excellent title for Xbox Live Arcade, that although it is not very innovative in comparison with the original, it improves upon it in almost every aspect.

    Directed to a public less used to strategy and management games, Anno: Create a New World is a good game which has succeeded in adapting a very computer-esque gameplay to Wii.

    Novel and videogame join to compose a very interesting proposal in the saturated first person action genre.

    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.

    Except for the tutorials and the long sessions it requires, it's a wonderful adventure in every aspect that offers tons of fun.

    Blur is an attractive, intense, fast and thrilling game. It's built over a solid structure, and has a more than satisfying depth.

    The best LEGO game to date, and in fact one of the best Batman games ever. It becomes a sandbox, but this is not the best of Lego Batman 2. Its level design shines, with great situations and challenges that will keep us playing for hours.

    • 90 Critic Score
    We still miss feeling that our actions do impact the plot, but this episode is full of great moments worth experiencing. So far, we can only wait for the third episode and hope that Telltale keeps bringing such an outstanding narrative.

    Original, visually attractive and unique, Borderlands won't leave anyone indifferent and will be a treasure for those who enjoy its innovative style.

    • 80 Critic Score
    The game has been very good adapted to the pad controls, making it a great opportunity for console players to try the first game of the series. It doesn't match the visuals of the original, however, and doesn't add any new feature of content.
    • 81 Metascore

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

    Rage delivers as an action game, with outstanding graphics and gameplay that is sometimes tactic, sometimes savage and always intense. Some players may expect a sandbox, but the game is really a very classic action shooter.

    We can say Napoleon: Total War covers all the needs of strategy fans.

    This HD upgrade delivers what it promises. It enhances image quality, adds trophies to foster replayability, and also includes 3D steroscopic vision. We only miss some extra content, like artworks galleries, interviews with the team or a making of documentary, but those who didn't enjoy the originals have here a very interesting buy to consider.

    Flux tries to return to the origin of the series, in a risky but interesting twist which achieves to engage the player. It mantains the high difficulty level of all the series, but changes some gameplay features that eliminate frustration.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Still a good game, and with improved graphics, but it lacks some more features. We miss especially a multiplayer mode which would have made the most of the console connectivity potential.

    Instead of feeling exhausted, this episode brings some of the best moments of the series. Another outstanding adventure of the Professor that every fan of puzzles should try.

    Polyphony Digital keeps polishing its series, with a game that becomes more accessible, but still very deep. There's room for improvement, but as far as PS3 goes, Gran Turismo 6 proves that your "old" console still has a lot to give.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Although it does not have many competitors in the Wii library, this is the best FPS in Wii, with the best multiplayer mode, and one of the best games of the year in the console.

    This is a good sequel which will please those who enjoyed the first game, and also those looking for a game of intense action, with a classic bidimensional, but spectacular, style.

    If Patapon was surprising because of the freshness and charm of the characters, Patapon 2 completely lacks that, which can lead to think that this is simply the same game, with some minor touches to deliver and strengthen the console portfolio. Nothing further from the truth, this title can be compared with any blockbuster on the PSP.

    Madworld has made a lot of noise before its launch and, after playing it, we can say it deserves it, although the result could have been even better. The game brings very special aesthetics which are undoubtedly a good decision, and totally fits the gameplay experience Platinum Games wanted to offer.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A great choice full of humor for those who want to get started in the genre. Long-time fans may find it easy, and we were expecting a deeper gameplay, but still a great recommendation.

    Ignoring some small flaws, IL 2-Sturmovik is delicious, honest, mature and deep, one of the most complex and fascinating flying simulators ever published in console.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The problem is that it arrives on this platform quite late. Apart from this, the game offers a very original concept that needs some time to work out, but it's rewarding and engaging in the end.

    Even though the 'freemium' model might not please everyone, it does work and let the player choose whether he wants some extra modes or not. When it comes to gameplay, it's as good as always, and guarantees many hours of fun.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Even with its flaws in gameplay and its short durability, we have to reckon it as a different game, amazing in some aspects, very interesting in others, with a hypnotic design and, most of the time, a fascinating experience every gamer should try.

    • 81 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    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. Only certain moments which cut the pace, and some problems in the fights which can become frustrating, blur one of the masterpieces of the year.

    Dungeon Defenders successfully blends strategy, rol and customization with action. A recommended game which is hard and demanding when playing solo, and very fun in cooperative.

    This Ultimate version is better than the original Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and hardcore fighting fans should consider it a must-have, although only nine months have passed since the original launch and this may upset some gamers.

    Anomaly is, above all, a very fresh and interesting game, with fun mechanics. It is a modest game which hasn't attracted much attention, but we are sure it will surprise many.

    Those who didn't like previous game won't enlist in the Assassin guild, but it is must-have for fans of the series as it reveals some secrets of the story. Shorter than the previous games, but with a better story, it consolidates the multiplayer mode adding extra variety.

    Behind its stunning visuals there's a good game full of details with a great gameplay. It's quite simple and doesn't make the most of its RPG features. Apart from this, Lili is an entertaining experience recommended for iOS users looking for an adventure game.

    Eternal Sonata is one of the sure bets in the RPG portfolio of PlaStation 3, a genre that unfortunately doesn't have many good components in the console, so this port from the Xbox 360 presented by Tri-Cescendo is one of the current best.

    • 87 Critic Score
    This is the launch title everyone should get, provided they like the action-adventure genre. A pocket blockbuster which can resist the comparison with the domestic entries and makes good use of the touch screen to add extra gameplay features. Drake is as charming as ever, and this title defines what the genre can offer in the PSVita. Shooting is at last fun on portable consoles.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Even though it looks like a random, crazy game, it's actually a pretty solid offer that players who just want to have fun will enjoy. Anyway, just the fact of Ubisoft has released such a wild concept gives us some hope for a future where big companies take risks with their games.

    This PC version is just what we expected. The same product we have seen in consoles, but with polished graphics to make the most of the power of the platform. It is not a game for newcomers to the series, as its story follows those of the previous game, but followers of Assassin's Creed will love it.

    Ultimately, Wii Sports Resort is the concept of the first entry, but taken much further, in part thanks to the Wii Motion Plus, but also for Nintendo's will to make Wii Sports a more complete game, able to satisfy both veterans and newcomers.

    It's a great survival horror game, following the steps of previous "hide and survive" games where we cannot attack creatures. We think there's enough talent behind this game to try something different, but still they've created a very scary adventure that we think is worth enjoying.

    It's probably one of the best strategy games on iOS. However, it heavily relies on in-app purchases, so keep that in mind. If you like what it has to offer, those purchases will be worth it anyway.

    A must-have for genre followers, that again puts NIS as the leader in strategic RPG games. We miss more options, like the possibility to save the game in the middle of a battle, and a more comprehensive online mode. The best Disgaea game to date.

    Mutant Mudds is a decent game, but it could have been better. We love the retro style, both artistically and gameplay wise, but it has some irritating flaws in level design. Anyway, Mutant Mudds is destined to that public who love classic games and classic challenges.

    Renegade Ops uses simple but effective gameplay mechanics, which will be liked for those looking for an spiritual succesor of Jackal, and also shoot'em up lovers. The game is short in duration, but its cooperative modes compensate for it.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A good action title, fun, intense and with a simple yet interesting story, with an inusual an attractive visual design. Its violence is as exaggerated as in the comics, but results original in a videogame. Its multiplayer cooperative mode is also surprising.

    There's plenty of blood, stunning action, fun and a few puzzles in this game. It's Kratos losing his family, losing his mind and annihilating massive creatures. It's a God of War, and there's little we can say apart from that. You already knew if this game was meant for you or not.

    It is a loyal adaptation of the original game which includes all the content it is remembered for. Although the formula might have aged, especially if compared with recent sandbox efforts made by Rockstar itself, it is a great game to have in your mobile phone. Its only flaw is in the controls, which are quite confusing at first.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    This is one of the best graphic adventures we've played in the last few years, at least with classic gameplay mechanics. Great story, great characters, great puzzles… and one of the best closures for a trilogy we've seen in a while.

    Red Steel 2 is a great game that offers an efficient combination of sword and gun and won't disappoint those who try it.
