    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.

    • 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.

    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.

    We wouldn't say Elite: Dangerous is finished, but it is indeed a great game with solid foundations. With future updates, it can become the great MMO it is aiming to be.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Any person, regardless he likes tennis or not, will find fun, challenge and charm in this game, with a great system of advancement through the world as if it was a RPG game.

    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.
    • 80 Metascore

    If you're looking for a deep strategy game, this is one you can get lost in for more hours than you can count.
    • 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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A great mix of platforming and puzzles, with loads of contents and an attractive design.

    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
    • 75 Critic Score
    This is one of the games where very different ideas work really well together. A very interesting experience for those who want to play racing games in a different way.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Another awesome indie game. It might look standard, but it's design is perfect and it will become a challenging, very pleasing experience. Absolutely recommended for platformers fans.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    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.

    Skate keeps improving, but this new installment doesn't offer many new things.

    • 75 Critic Score
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    It feels experimental, halfway between a platformer and a sports game, but still unique and fun. If you're looking for an original game, this can be a good choice.
    • 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.

    If its "only English" status is not a problem and you like Japanese culture, Yakuza 3 becomes a must-buy for a PlayStation 3 owner.

    Fresh, original and fun. It's not something extremely new or revolutionary, but still one of the best choices for those looking for an unique puzzle game on iOS.

    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    It is an addictive and enjoyable game, but it lacks some more updates in gameplay by today's standards.

    After the dissapointment of the previous KOF XII, we were skeptical with this new entry, but things have changed. With King of Fighters XIII the great gameplay the series has been famous for returns, and this is great news.

    There are few things to object to this Rock Band Unplugged. This portable version respects the gameplay of its elder brothers, but adding a new gameplay approach that we consider a hands down achievement.

    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great game for children that makes great use of Kinect capabilities. Kids from any age can play thanks to the absence of a controller, and the story is charming and happy, with very accesible gameplay.
    • 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.

    EA Sports MMA is a good first step to build a new series, but it is nowhere near its competition.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    One of the most original games of the year.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It brings the original formula one step closer to perfection, improving its visuals and gameplay. There's nothing extremely special under the new version, but it's free and still fun, so there's no reason to stick to the previous one.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is yet another great fighting game for Nintendo 3DS. Visually stunning and very atractive, with great gameplay and able to offer lots of hours of fun thanks to its great online mode.

    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 79 Metascore

    Chimes makes itself lovable for its simplicity, its concept and above all the relaxed atmosphere surrounding it, following other "quiet" games like flOw or Osmos.

    The most remarkable element in its gameplay design is that it has know how to emancipate itself from the Rubik cube: previous attempts show it won't work in videogames, and it is just an inspiration for this game.

    Pendulo Studios has made its homework and Twist of Fate becomes an homage to those classic adventure games every videogame fan remembers.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are some issues, but its gameplay is as good as always and there's content enough to keep us playing for months. Keep in mind, though, you'll need a Wii U to play online.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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.

    Sumo Digital has done a great job with the franchise, taking a big step forward in the right direction. A game any LBP fan should play.

    • 86 Critic Score
    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.
    • 79 Metascore

    Legend of War is hands down the best strategy game ever made for PSP, a must-buy for fans of the genre.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Although it isn't a very original game, behind its relaunch appearance there is a good and well-executed roleplaying strategy game. Combat is fun, there are lots of customization options and the story shows charming characters.
    • 79 Metascore

    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.

    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    It improves on the first installment, which was an interesting product, and enhances most of it, broadening the exercise list and making them more varied, improving the control system through its new accessories and allowing us to join groups to share our advances.

    After a long and complicated development, Ghost Recon Future Soldier has resulted in a very good third-person action game. It is recommended for those who are a bit tired of frantic action other titles offer, or classic warfare first-person game. It is not as complex as previous Ghost Recon games, but it is also more accesible and implements great cooperative options.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A beautiful, intense but short surprise. A great experience anybody interested in games should buy, taking into account that its opening sequence feels way better than the rest of the gameplay, and that most players will only go through the story once, that is 4-5 hours tops.
    • 79 Metascore

    This new Square Enix entry into the fighting genre is completely superior to Ergheiz, with a combat system which engages since the very first minute, redesigned character and an original story.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It's true it becomes repetitive, and it doesn't stand out for its story, but despite that this is one of the most frantic and fun titles we can currently find on the shelves.
    • 79 Metascore

    It works, entertains and reaches its objectives, but in future installments we'd like to see new elements in the formula.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's complex, can be played as many times as we want and there are so many possibilities we couldn't ask for something better. Some may say there's little evolution compared to the previous episodes, but one way or another, we think it's one of the best games we've played this year.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    This is one of those games perfect for having a break when you're tired of complex games. Lots of contents and a great balance between platforming and puzzle will have you playing for hours.

    PES 2012 is again the best soccer game for the Wii, offering a comprehensive simulation of the sport, allowing any type of strategy and offering plenty of championships to compete in. However, motion controls have been favored in comparison with the traditional games, something which may not be liked by some gamers.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 93 Critic Score
    It's long, has a great narrative and combines the gameplay both series in an outstanding way. If you just like one of them you'll "only" enjoy half of the experience, but if you like both, it's a game you cannot miss.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It came as a surprise, and we actually enjoyed it. For 800 MSP you can get a interesting mix of hack & slash and Angry Birds that will stay on your console for a while.

    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A must-have, but not for everyone because of its strange story and puzzle gameplay. The story is only for mature audiences, and can only be understood by, and the "cube towers" are not accesible for all players. If you like the genre and the theme this is a game you will remember.
    • 79 Metascore

    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    The experience remains solid and addictive, but those who played the series before won't see a big evolution here. Still, the formula continues to work, so no one should be disappointed.

    Prototype 2 evolves all the good elements from the original, as if it were the Mercer virus. It still lacks something that would make it a superb game, but it is on the way: lots of action and exploration, a slight bit of stealth and a whole city to bring chaos to.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    It would be a shame for Final Fantasy XIII-2 not to receive the attention it deserves. It is one of the best games that Square Enix has made in recent years, and a good proof that the venerable Japanese company can evolve the formula of the genre it helped create. FFXIII-2 mantains its personality and has its own ideas very well executed.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Although the basic gameplay is the same through all the game and it becomes repetitive, it has many spells and abilities and the various characters make it an enjoyable game.

    Those veteran players that miss the times of point and click adventures shouldn't let this app escape. Its price and originality make it a must have for iPhone.
    • 79 Metascore

    FEAR 2: Project Origin leaves us quite an uneven sensation. On one hand it has offered us truly spectacular and full of tension moments, very different from the ones which other games in the genre offer. Moreover, its carefully made atmosphere, fueled by the solid graphics engine developed by Monolith, make the immersion sensation total. The problem is that although FEAR 2 knows what makes itself stand out from the other shooters, it insists on offering quite generic moments during most of the game, and, worse indeed, it's not quite polished.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    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

    Even though there are no huge steps forward from the previous episode, it manages to bring us everything we expected and some nice additions like the online multiplayer. It has everything you need to keep a party going.

    A great, addictive arcade that those looking for a challenge, and particularly those fond of skateboarding, will love. We think it needs a level editor, but so far there's a lot of content to keep us going.

    A good free App that offers roleplaying and combat, is beautiful from a technical standpoint, but results in a very limited and linear gameplay. If you like to create a character and make it grow through hours of play you will like the game, but you'll have to be patient.
    • 79 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.

    Tales of Vesperia is a solid role-playing game, built upon the canonical bases of the japanese genre. The characters go through an epic story, with moments of drama and also some bits of humor. Its intense combat mantains the tradition of the series, and it also has a good technical part.
