    Nothing really different in comparison with the previous chapter, except for some better puzzles.

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

    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.

    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.

    • 90 Critic Score
    It has the same base as the first game, but adds lots of new dangers and interactive mazes that make it more than an expansion. And also something that extends the duration of the game: competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes.

    • 94 Critic Score
    More fighters and stages than ever, graphic and control improvements, tons of videos and customization elements to unlock, good online modes and four-player battles. Is there anything else you could ask for? It's not the most revolutionary Tekken, but it is the most complete one.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A great example of what a DLC should be: it's deep and expands the features of the huge original experience. Actually, it's so good that we can't wait to see the next one.

    If you're up for a challenge, Galak-Z delivers a great experience. Even though it's not perfect, if you're interested in its shoot 'em up, roguelike concept, it's a good choice.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    An excellent role-playing game, and a logical and direct evolution of the previous game, more action-focused and more polished, although its action focus won't please everyone.

    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.

    The genre is as healthy as ever, and this Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is great news for fans of 3D fighting. Although it is a digital only title, it resist the comparison with its rivals, although the game itself is not that new and it lacks single player modes.
    • 82 Metascore

    It takes a classic strategy formula, but makes it feel fresh, offering a fun, addictive and almost unique experience.

    Okamiden is a noteworthy title which follows the story and the structure of the original game. Despite some flaws, especially in the pointer detection, it is a very recommended experience.

    Skullgirls still is a very interesting fighting game fans of the 2D part of the genre should try. And if you haven't tried it yet, this version is a great opportunity.

    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.

    Telltale proves that they know how to write a story, and we just cannot wait to see how it unfolds in the next episode.

    The new contents are not as good as the original games, and the enemy AI could have been improved, but without doubt this is one of the most interesting launches of recent months.

    PES is back with the best episode of the HD era. It's still one step behind FIFA when we talk about technical aspects, but it brings back that little 'something' we loved on PS2 that made it special. The new additions to the control system and the detail put into every match to make them different are some of the key elements we feel are worth mentioning. PES 2013 is finally able to fight the supremacy FIFA has this generation.

    Although there are things to be improved in the online game of Marvel vs Capcom 2, this title is as fun as it was in 2000, and that's quite a thing to say about a videogame.

    Over the Top Games has shown that it's possible to develop excellent games with the relatively limited resources of WiiWare. It's not just having an original and good idea, but also knowing how to make the best of the available resources.

    A simple and straightforward experience that holds lots of fun for those who want to have a break from more complex titles.

    This is simply the best work Vanillaware so far. We absolutely recommend it for those looking for 2D action games, RPG adventures or multiplayer-focused experiences. This time there's more than beautiful graphics. It is a solid and fun experience you should try.

    Crusader Kings II is probably the best game Paradox has ever made. The nordic studio is getting more and more experienced in the strategy genre after years making excellent titles, and the depth of Crusader Kings II is simply overwhelming. Thanks to its good AI, the game gets challenging and realistic. Its only flaws are the limitations in the military part.

    An HD update that does justice to the less-known chapter in the Oddworld series. Those who missed the original for whatever reasons shouldn't let escape this update that enhances graphics and tells the story of a charming character.

    • 85 Critic Score
    It was a great game ten years ago, and it still is today, thanks to a great work of updating its gameplay and upgrading its visuals to offer a refreshed look. It also integrates online multiplayer which we expect to be expanded through DLC.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It's a great hack & slash that works pretty well as a Metal Gear spin-off. The last part of the title seems rushed, and there are certain glitches that may darken the experience, but it'll bring many unforgettable moments that can be only created by Kojima and Platinum Games.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Except for the story and characters, we've fallen in love with everything about this game. Visuals, music, gameplay... A charming experience that does not disappoint.

    • 84 Critic Score
    It's manages to show its own personality, and offers loads of content supported by a great gameplay. Highly recommended if we want to play with friends or family, and on the top of that, its reduced price is something many players will appreciate.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is a great adventure that excels in pretty much every aspect. You should not miss it if you're a fan of the genre, and if you like sci-fi stories, it deserves a try.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Fun and simple with loads of content to keep us busy. It's artistically brilliant, and its OST is a masterpiece. However it's extremely easy and too simple when it comes to the game mechanics. We still have to wait and see what is yet to come, so there's definitely room for improvement. It could have been better, but it's still special.

    No matter if you want a great story or a complex puzzle game, Ether One won't disappoint you. A great experience that, even though it has some issues, is worth experiencing.
    • 82 Metascore

    We can't assure it is a turning point in the series, but it manages to make fights fun and it's no doubt an outstanding game.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    This is one of those games driven by its story, even though the narrative is better than the story told, but all under stunning visuals. If you like the concept, then we think you're going to enjoy this one.

    This Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 is a good title that football fans will like. Maybe it's not as good as in other consoles, but improves last year games and the rest of the games of the genre in Wii.

    It merges the best from Mario Kart and LittleBigPlanet to create one of the most pleasant surprises of this year.

    It is a game PS Vita users can't miss, even thought there's little evolution from its predecessor, and it's rather a 1.5 version.

    King's Bounty The Armored Princess is a great game. It's a wonderful add-on to the original game, and offers few, but interesting new features.

    Enslaved: Odyssey to the West has some flaws in its design; neither of its gameplay styles achieves to excel, and there are some obvious insatisfactory aspect. However, as a whole it works very good, and its is an enjoyable and gratifying title, with a good story told with unusual success. It has its flaws, but its achievements compensate for them.

    Halo Wars is possibly the best real-time strategy game ever made for console. It captures all the essence of the genre and, for the first time, translates it to our gamepad with absolute success. It's not like the dominating sort of strategy game in PCs, but it has its own, well defined personality, and its specific features, which define Halo Wars as a solid and outstanding bet.

    SSX
    It is faithful to its arcade style and offers hours of spectacle and craziness. The game shines because of its obvious merits and also the absence of competitors. Those who wanted the series to reappear or want and adrenaline burst with their game pad should get it.

    Enter the Gungeon is addictive, fun and deeper than it looks. It's far from being revolutionary, but it has its own personality and a few details that make it unique. If you enjoy shooting and dungeon crawling, you don't want to miss it.

    • 87 Critic Score
    NIS and Disgaea never disappoint, and this is yet another game RPG fans shouldn't miss. If you've played the original game, you'll find many new things here, even though the core experience is pretty much the same.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Even though the genre may be quite saturated these days, this is a great option. It's fun, deep, mature and different. There are some issues with the AI and it's not extremely different from its previous episodes, but if that's not a problem, you'll probably enjoy this new adventure.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    This is an incredible fighting game, addictive and both deep and accessible. It doesn't have too much content, but if you're OK with that, you're going to have a blast playing it with friends.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Yes, it's short, but it's one of those games only an indie developer can make. It's special, addictive and fun, and a must-have for those who love platforming titles.

    Joe Danger's back and is better than ever. Entertaining and different, simple and demanding, with many new options loads of content. The only things we can complain about are the lack of online multiplayer and the extreme difficulty at the end of the game.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    It is obviously a step forward in the franchise, but not as big a it should be. The additions are great, but we would have liked to have seen a true evolution of the visuals or new modes. Still, it is a great FIFA.

    The great pinball simulator we already know arrives on PS4 letting us download all the tables we've already purchased on PS3 and PS Vita versions. There's no new additions, but the experience is as good and addictive as it is on other platforms.

    Not just in the fighting genre, this is one of the best games on Nntendo DS, and this is saying a lot if we consider the huge portfolio of the console. We hope the other two Bleach installments currently on the way for Nintendo DS arrive Europe in this way: perfectly translated to Spanish and keeping is fun online mode.

    Severed is very original and engaging, but it's hard to tell what audience it is addressed to. If you want to know what dungeon crawling, a touch of RPG and a heavy dose of touch screen feels like, Severed is your game.

    We get the feeling that this universe is trying to reinvent itself, bringing very original elements to its proposal, something that we appreciate taking into account the situation of the genre. There's still room for improvement, but it is indeed a very interesting start that we hope will get better with further updates.

    A great MMO with loads of content from the very beginning. The subscription model might be a hurdle for some players, but at least it offers the possibility of paying for it with making money within the game. We need to wait and see if it receives enough support from the community and developers, but the starting point is very promising.

    Resistance: Retribution is today probably the best 3rd person action title for the PSP, not only or its excellent story and impeccable gameplay, but also for the huge possibilities its multiplayer modes offer, and the possibility to connect with Resistance 2 for the PS3. Undoubtedly a very important title in the PSP portfolio, and a must buy for all the action fans.

    This is not the best fighting game of the generation, but it is one of the most enjoyable, fun and spectaculars we've played in a while. Its fast and dynamic pace and its amount of content are two of the main reasons why DC fans will love this title.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Beyond its simplicity, there's a lot of hard work that manages to offer a fun and addictive experience, specially for those who have someone to play with. If for you visuals are not the most important part of a game, this one definitely deserves a try.

    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.
