    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.

    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 does have some technical issues, but when it comes to gameplay is very solid and fun, and after all, that what matters.

    If you like real-time strategy games, or if you enjoyed the first one, this is a game you can't miss. It's not a revolution, but it polishes the original experience.

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

    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.

    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.

    If you want a break from action games and you're willing to give a visual novel a try, this is a good option, with interesting plot twists that will keep you playing till you finish it.

    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.

    Dawn of War II keeps improving and shining. It is a game which will be liked both by seasoned strategy players and also newcomers.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    It works, entertains and reaches its objectives, but in future installments we'd like to see new elements in the formula.

    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.
    • 80 Metascore

    It is another step forward for the franchise, that will bring its fans the opportunity of enjoy this card-based game in a virtual way.

    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.

    • 87 Critic Score
    It’s been a tough start, but this is the way to go. If they keep polishing the experience and adding content, Los Santos is going to be our home for a long time.

    Men of War impresses once being played. The variety of options make Men of War a title worth noting, and its graphical quality and photography work is very praiseworthy.

    Charming characters, a more than excellent music, hilarious situations and lots of humour is what we'll find in this series of Monkey Island stories.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.

    Despite some minor flaws, like the exclusion of an online mode, or the absence of a story mode, Broken Destiny is one of the best fighting game in the portable console.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A great start for the fighting genre in PSVita and an excellent port of the original PS3 game from last November. It includes an easily forgettable touch mode, but its gameplay is great, its traditional controls are splendid and it offers lots of characters, although falls short in gameplay modes for one player.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Hironobu Sakaguchi and Nobuo Uematsu team up again to make a Japanese RPG which can be easily considered one of the best in years. It succeeds in innovating in a lot of features, with a charming gameplay that works and is very fun. It also has an epic and well-told story. A must-have for fans of the genre.

    This is a great approach to the GTA concept, with extremely fun and different missions, and a wise use of the GamePad functions. If you really like the genre, you shouldn't miss this opportunity.

    • 81 Critic Score
    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning mixes the open-ended gameplay of games like The Elder Scrolls with a hack and slash combat system. The result is good, dynamic and fun, although lacks some more depth or strategic elements, and this can result repetitive in a game of this length. It is a huge world with plenty of things to do that can keep us engaged for weeks, and its only shortcoming is the story and its characters, which lack some more charm, and the repetitive design of the quests.

    PC gamers have now the opportunity to try a great fighting experience, no matter if they are fans of manga/anime or not. The visual upgrade on PC is, indeed, welcome, and the extra contents are appreciated as well.

    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 Critic Score
    We would have liked to have seen a further evolution of the gameplay or the narrative, but still, inFamous: Second Son is much more than just outstanding visuals and becomes a very enjoyable experience and an example of what next-gen consoles can offer.

    Beaterator hits hard on the PSP, becoming a new milestone in electronic music creation and editing.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The additions are not likely to be enough for those who own the original episode, especially with so many rivals on PS3. However, it is a very recommendable option on PS Vita.

    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.
    • 80 Metascore

    It feels like an update rather than a remaster, but remastered or not, it's a masterpiece you shouldn't miss.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    It's a pleasure having such a game on PSVita. The quality is pretty much the same we've seen in the console versions, with some nice additions and the lack of the 2v2 mode.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is an old school roleplaying game, with a superb presentation. Sadly, the controls are not as good we would have wished, and it lacks multiplayer capabilities. Despite these flaws, it is one of the best roleplaying games in the App Store.

    Call of Pripyat is not perfect nor revolutionary, but for sure is the most complete game of the trilogy, and an excellent ending for this series.
    • 80 Metascore

    This is probably the most balanced experience between the old and the new Resident Evil in the last few years. Above all, it's full of content, so we've got a great game to spent some quality time with.

    BOXBOY! works, but it fails to surprise, and takes way too long to get to the interesting challenges.
    • 80 Metascore

    It is a great puzzle and platform game, but overall, it's a great story that lies behind a bunch of rectangles that happen to be some AI.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's probably the best karting game on iOS devices. There's a in-app purchases system that we're not too fond of, but the overall experience is fun, addictive and solid.

    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.

    Dex delivers an interesting story and a solid gameplay, but there are some bugs and aspects with some room for improvement that prevent it from becoming a better experience.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    The additions we've seen in this episode are worth the console upgrade, making it more entertaining and fun than ever. The improved control and the evolved AI makes it closer to the driving simulator you may be looking for.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    It is not a revolution, but a great way to bring a classic back. If you like old-school shooters, you are going to enjoy this one.

    As a launch title this is a good recommendation if you don't have FIFA 12 in another plataform, or if you are such a football fan that you need to carry your game everywhere. A promising start of football games in the system.

    Metroid: Other M is a constant homage to the series. Its classic gameplay has been revamped and is more action focused, but it retains parts of its past. The game has achieved to turn Samus into a more human character, and the story is much more important this time, which is a good thing.

    It is one of the best strategy roguelike games we've played lately, and we've had a lot of fun doing so. We would've liked a better learning curve, but the challenge is still solid.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    There's not many additions compared to the console version (except for the 12 DLC characters), but still is an excellent 2D fighting game. A must have for fans of any to the series, always keeping in mind that the Gems system might be a problem when you start playing online.

    • 79 Metascore

    Criterion's seal of quality. They've managed to squeeze the console version on Sony's handheld, just adapting the graphics to the new hardware. It doesn't look as good as the PS3 or 360 version, but it's still the same experience, and one the best titles you'll see on PSVita in a while. Absolutely recommended for fans of driving games.

    An interesting game that blends intelligently two types of well known games: one of territory conquest like Risk, and one in which we have to form words. It may result very addictive for some players, but those who are not native English speakers will find too much of a barrier.

    It is the same Wipeout formula we have enjoyed before both on the PS3 and the PSP, but with outstanding graphics and a much better control thanks to the use of the dual analog sticks. The motion sensor use is an extra mode that is not that good, but the use of the touch screen is perfect. It might not be the best Wipeout in the series, but is one of the best titles in the launch of PSVita.

    Dead Rising 2: Case 0 is remarkable for being a downloadable sample of a game coming to retail in a month. It is a fresh concept, as it is not a demo, but it seems its objective is just to show what Dead Rising 2 is going to offer. The story closes in a reasonably good way, although it does so in order to be linked with the story of the main game, which of course may not be liked by part of the public.
