    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.

    It's not a huge step forward from the previous episode, but it does deliver everything a baseball fan could ask for. Plenty of options, loads of content and many hours of fun.

    • 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.

    It brings a solid experience, with lots of possibilities and a new environment that makes it feel classic but fresh at the same time.

    Those who enjoyed the first Scribblenauts will enjoy again the experience, and newcomers should give a chance to a game which fosters our creativity like no one.

    It has the flavour of the original Sonic, but refined. It may result too short for its price, but it is very replayable.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is an old-school RPG game, where every player can get deeper into it the way they want. It's like an open window to a past time full of apocalyptic fun.

    Action, exploration and Japanese tradition made art in your screen.

    Maybe gamers doubted if this Black Ops was going to be on par with the games made by Infinity War, but it even surpasses them in some aspects.

    This is a good sequel, and even though it is not a great step forward in the franchise, it is indeed a game that those who enjoyed the original will have fun playing.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    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
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is the most complete, large, fun and ambitious Trackmania game ever made. It improves upon the formula that has make the game succeed, and again challenges us to beat our best times and also our rivals'. And at a very attractive price.

    Smackdown vs RAE 2010 is more of the same, but the most complete edition in years, and the one that has included more content.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    It offers a lot for too little, with an engaging gameplay and an addictive mechanic. It's ideal for every device, anywhere, anytime.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It brings not only more content, but also a very interesting twist to the gameplay. It's such a step forward that it could have been called Company of Heroes 3.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Not many new features in yet another annual installment of a sports title.
    • 81 Metascore

    In a certain way it may seem a title oriented to teens, specially for its aesthetics, but it will surprise those who approach it.

    This is one of the best chapters Telltale has made in its whole career.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    It pretty much improves everything we didn't like about the first episode. If you like the concept or if you enjoyed the first Danganronpa, this definitely deserves your time and money.
    • 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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The lack of single player content could be a problem for some, but if you're happy with two new armies for multiplayer matches, then it's probably worth your time.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Diplomacy, espionage and religion are extended this time and multiply the options of the game, which still has an amazing ability to keep us addicted for hours, trying to conquer the world.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    It is a great surprise, and even though we've felt the team behind could have pushed harder to make it a better experience, it's a game fans of the genre will definitely enjoy.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Probably the best RPG for NDS and the best Pokémon title so far.

    Codeblue has delighted us with one of the must have titles of Xbox Live Arcade.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.

    If you're fine with the free-to-play model and still not bored of having zombies everywhere, it's a great choice.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    This game takes known ideas and merge them into innovative gameplay. It's addictive and fun, even though it feels sometimes chaotic, but it definitely deserves a try.

    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As good as the 3DS version, extremely well adapted to the HD and still addictive and fun. Recommended for those who like arcade and retro-styled games.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A beautiful and unforgettable experience, very well written, with a challenging combat system, and where every action has its consequences. A game that RPG fans shouldn't miss.

    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.

    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's not a system-seller, but definitely one of those addictive retro-ish games you enjoy playing.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    A unique gameplay experience. Not only a good plataforming game which will be loved by retro fans, but also quite innovative thanks to the use of several points of view and 3D camera.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 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.

    The spirit of the original Driver returns in a great and very complete game, with a very long campaign that offers plenty of hours of fun, and a multiplayer mode full of variety.

    • 92 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The best adventure based on The Lord of the Rings. Long, fun, beautiful and close to the movies. If you're a LOTR fan then go ahead and buy it. If you're not, give it a try –it's great.
    • 80 Metascore

    If you like RPG games, this is a great experience and a wonderful remake, that adds not only improved visuals, but also loads of content.

    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    The best version so far. It solves many issues and keeps some others, and, even though it doesn't make the most of current PCs, we still think it's the best way to enjoy this outstanding game.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    After Burner II still is a great game. If you want to relive it again with some remastered content, you won't be disappointed with this version.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A risky and original game that does well everything it proposes. Magnificient and engaging, with a design that gives the player absolute freedom to solve the challenges.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Interesting, fun and fresh, it's not the ultimate action game, but definitely a good choice.
    • 80 Metascore

    It's as good as always and solves the issues we experienced with GTA III. A great adaptation worth checking out, whether you've already played the original game or not.

    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.

    • 92 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Tekken 6 is the best 3D fighting game of this generation. Namco Bandai has done an excellent job translating the arcade game to our gamepads.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    Any Kirby fun should buy this game. It's not the best of the series, but it's a great, although easy, platformer, and holds minigames and content to keep us playing for a long while.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 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.

    These are three great games you shouldn't miss, so this is a great opportunity if you missed them before. The port could have been better, but having the Sly trilogy on a handheld is, indeed, tempting.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Loads of new content, with minor additions and huge ones, sticking to the core of the series and totally recommended for anyone interested in them.

    A must-have for golf fans, but it will be too of a simulation for novice players, as it doesn't include a comprehensive tutorial for those who have no experience in previous games.

    If you've ever played and enjoyed a 2D platform game, you cannot miss this one. Another title that proves that this genre, long forgotten, is back.

    It is the best sports manager we've have right now. There are not so many additions as we used to see a few years ago, but still a step forward forward the franchise.

    Self-defined as a "slow game", The Rivers of Alice is a game with a lot of effort put into it, that creates an, indeed, slow but satisfying experience users will enjoy if they are willing to live a tale in the shape of a graphic adventure.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It is not as revolutionary as the previous game, its combat system has aged in this two years, and it lacks that freshness, but Fable 3 is still a huge game, able to engage the player and absorb him into the world of Albion. This one is better organized, first it shows us the many things we can do in the game world, and then it let us decide what we want to do. And it is still full of that fairytale magic.

    You might not enjoy its concept, but if you do, then you'll find a big game with a lot of possibilities. We hope Activision will keep on improving the series, but so far it's going the right way.

    This is one of the best games on the Wii and arguably the best first-person shooter made for the console.

    Ragdoll Blaster 3 is a classic sequel that adds everything we expect from one: more levels, more options and more ragdoll to "shoot". With a very competitive price and a very long duration, maybe its gameplay is a bit overused, but it still works.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good free-to-play game that, despite some flaws, is a lot of fun. It lacks some more game modes, a tutorial and more flexibility to set up matches, but it is a very enjoyable game for those wanting to give it a chance.

    A polished evolution of what we saw last year, as if PES 2011 was midway to the goal PES 2012 has achieved. It changes some of the controls, and greatly enhances AI, although it still has its flaws, especially with the goalkeepers. But, above all, PES 2012 is a really engaging and fun football game, with much more variety and charm than previous entries.

    One of the last "must-have" we'll see on Nintendo DS. It's simply one of the bests and most original SRPGs right now, with many hours of fun waiting for you and very interesting characters to lead us through the plot.

    Probably the weakest episode so far, even though it still keeps its essence and entertains. One way or another, we need to highlight its ending, telling us the final episode will be huge.
