    Miniland Mayhem is one of those games whose mechanics get into your brain. Although it doesn't evolve in graphics and sound in comparison with previous versions, its gameplay does, and that is what really matters.

    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.

    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.

    The third Golden Sun follows a classic approach to RPG which might disappoint some, but will please those who love japanese style games.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It takes over the foundations of their previous game and evolves them, creating a narrative that will take the player deep in the story.

    It would be great news if the sense of humor of Deathspank spreads to other games, or at least if Ron Gilbert gets encouraged and makes more games.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.

    Fun in the multiplayer and different to any other game in the market, Fat Princess is one of the best titles available in the digital marketplace, an instant classic which adapts game modes of other genre under a new and fresh approach.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's a new path in the genre, with a great use of the free-to-play concept. It's innovative and simple, and will give any user loads of fun.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Greed Corp is a simple strategy game within the huge Xbox Live Arcade portfolio, but it has enough differentiating details to stand out above the rest.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's unique. There's no defined genre but it's a great experience that will manage to catch the player's attention, even though it would be quite particular for the standard audience.

    Although not as remarkable as the iOS versions of last year, Anomaly Warzone Earth is still fresh and well-done enough to shine between the rest of strategy games for console. It is not that much depth or varied, and might become repetitive, but despite this it is a surprising game that achieves to engage the player.
    • 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.

    Mini Ninjas is a good action game, entertaining, enjoyable and able to offer some hours of good fun, but far from being one of the great games of the genre.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    It's a Facebook game turned into an iOS. It's not very original, even though is entertaining and engaging. It's partially based on the free-to-play concept, so eventually we might face some money-demanding situations.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It is somehow simple, but very addictive and fun. It definitely deserves our time if you're looking for something like this.

    Bigbig Studios has achieved to adapt the philosophy of the Evolution Studios games to a less powerful hardware.
    • 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.

    It is a good chance for Perfect Dark to reach a new audience, and for the gamers who enjoyed the original to play again this classic.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    The quality of this new Gears is outstanding and the new approach certainly suits it, but the overall feelings we've got are not that good. Maybe it's just that Gears of War 3 is too close in time, but, in any case, People Can Fly has done a great job that will satisfy the fans of the series and anyone looking for lots of action.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A very original and deep game, It's difficult, long and addictive, but the concept it's based on may not be enjoyable for everyone. Make sure you understand what it is about, and if you like this "survival" experience, then it won't disappoint.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the most interesting and fresh puzzles we've seen lately for these devices. It may look simple, but it gets harder and harder, and mastering it will take us a while.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Neocore has built an original and consistent game premise, which is attractive and successfully combines military strategy with a RPG-like development which allows different game experiences in each game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    It offers loads of fun and a simple but deep at the same time fighting system. Still far from perfect, but it could get closer to it with a few patches or updates.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Summing up, Overlord 2 is an excellent action and strategy adventure no fan of the genre should miss. It doesn't have plenty of new features, but even the original fans will find enough charm in this title to be engaged again.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Outrun Online Arcade is one of the indispensable downloadable games in the market. Thanks to its incredible gameplay, its addictive -although not very well taken the most of- and its features, untouched since the eighties, we can say this is currently one of the best arcade racers.

    Guitar Hero focuses on a loyal public, but limited to certain ranges. Band Hero broadens the public offering a repertory rich and varied enough to attract anyone.

    • 80 Critic Score
    ORC: Vengeance is one of the best classic action roleplaying games in iOS to date. It has all the virtues and vices of the genre, and its five chapters offer plenty of fun. Its control systems are especially well done, and greatly adapted to a touchable experience. Maybe it is not an original game, and it lacks a multiplayer cooperative mode, but it is a greay game at a quite an affordable price.

    This Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is recommended for everyone, although the gameplay differs a lot from the rest of the series.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Not only improves on the original, but also offers a great implementation of PlayStation Move control, and enough new features to set a new landmark.

    It is not the best football game, but it is a great football game, and is on the right path to further improvements.

    It is true that those who don't like Harvest Moon won't enjoy Rune Factory Frontier either, because they share most of the ideas, but it is a recommended title for those who want to approach the series, as it becomes more attractive because it includes combat.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A great game, one of the best to have hit the eShop of the Nintendo 3DS. Its great visuals, soundtrack and gameplay blend perfectly. We only miss some more content.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Mirror's Edge stands out for its impressive aesthetics and a gameplay concept full of potential and good intentions, that is executed in an irregular way.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is for now the ultimate version of the 90s classic. Those who played the original arcade would like to remember those moments, and maybe those who lost them want to discover this legend.

    The level of fun Crayon Physics Deluxe can offer us is in direct proportion with the player interest in experimenting with each of the stages of the game.

    The Walking Dead is back with the same identity the first season gave us. It sets the solid foundations of this season, and leaves us waiting for what could be another unique experience.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It uses many stereotypes, brings them to the maximum and keeps us in a world of political incorrectness, showing us hard environment were life is worth nothing: Wild West from cinema and literature enters Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, turns into a videogame and is still recognizable in all its elements, making the most of the spectacle of the medium.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Its proposal is, indeed, weird: capturing Denpa Men through Wi-Fi hotspots. However is a great RPG, a nice surprise recommended for the fans of the genre looking for new experiences.

    Despite being more than ten years old, Broken Sword is an excellent mystery adventure which will delight genre fans, both those who already knew the series and also newcomers.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great update for the classic, but not a must-have if you have the original one. If you don't, now it's the perfect choice to live this adventure.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Disgaea 3 is currently one of the greatest strategic RPG games, with a very fun story, a combat system which fans will love, and a more than exquisite gameplay. Not only that, the game is a very long and replayable one, above all for players which want to squeeze the 100% of it. Unfortunately, and this is one of the things that could undermine buyers -apart from the visuals-, Disgaea 3 is fully en English, and not exactly an easy one. It is a pity it has not been localized to Spanish at all.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    A superb game, with almost no cuts from the original version, but with few new features in comparison with Yakuza 3.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's true that key gameplay elements are still there, and its gameplay options guarantee dozens of hours of play, but its unbalanced pace and its noteworthy technical flaws result in a tedious experience, and make its virtues dilute.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Offers one of the best single player campaigns we've seen in years. Entertaining, different, intense, spectacular and with really memorable moments. It sticks to the original series, something fans will definitely love. It offers everything Transformers fans have always asked for. Its multiplayer modes won't be consider revolutionary, but it is a must-have, above all if you're a fan of the series.
    • 78 Metascore

    House of the Dear Overkill is a very interesting game that offers direct action, without much complexity, wrapped in very cool aesthetics, which no genre fan should miss.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Big Bang Min is a pretty similar game to Nervous Brickdown: a simple game, without much aspiration in the technical part, but extraordinarily addictive, at least during the first hours of gameplay. The problem is that it can become too repetitive, and in a few hours can come to bore the player.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Not many additions except for the Attitude Era, but it still manages to offer deep gameplay and many hours of fun. There are not too many choices in this genre; however, WWE 13 is complete enough to satisfy wrestling fans.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    It has more changes than last year's and it's on the right track, but still far from what we all desire.
    • 78 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.
    • 78 Metascore

    It has no real new features in comparison with the first release, so it may dissapoint some players, but it retains the original's strenghts.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    It is basically an action game from a third person perspective, but it adds survival and strategy to make it a deeper experience. The customization options and the possibilities to recruit survivors make it even more recommendable.

    • 85 Critic Score
    This is anything but another endless runner. Mixing RPG and action features, Slayin is a great surprise for those tired of the same concept again and again.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    It delivers as a "false" classic game, and it does appear to be like a Castlevania of the nineties. This will please the series followers, although maybe other gamers won't understand the game within its desired epoch and may be turned off.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Although MGS Snake Eater is included in the recent HD compilation for HD console, this 3D version for the 3DS is a great game, a remake of one of the best entries in the series. An attractive game, although not perfect, which is controlled better with the Circle Pad Pro.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A game designed to offer fun, and doesn't dissapoint. Although it lacks a multiplayer online mode which would have been great, it offers enough content to keep us engaged for hours, and has a very affordable price.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Dragon Quest VI is exactly what it promised to be: a return to the classic JRPG, one of the best of its genre, which remains faithful to the series' formula. It is its greatest charm, but also the greatest difficulty to attract new followers.

    One of the best things of Final Fantasy series is its music, and this game remind us of that. This is a gift for series followers, and if you like music games and Final Fantasy this is a must-have game. 77 songs and a great amount of extras and unlockables will make you play for many hours.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    The good use of the console potential in control and interface design, and the number of levels and game modes -multiplayer being especially remarkable- assure lots of hours of gameplay to strategy genre fans.

    This Gameloft proposal makes Asphalt 4 Elite Racing one of the best racing games available on Nintendo DS, specially in its subgenre, "real" car races. Mario Kart DS is still a difficult title to beat.

    This is not the huge mess some people claim nor the masterpiece some others say. It's a good MMORPG with some issues that you can enjoy if you can forgive them.

    Although we miss some content, like the extra downloadable chapters of Tomb Raider Underworld, this is still a great compilation which offers many hours of fun for an affordable price.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    This is a great example of how to make a Japanese RPG, keeping its foundations but making it work in 2013. Fun and engaging, it has some issues that will we forgive as soon as we start playing.

    Although this is just an expansion, the story of the bears is interesting enough for those who have played the original, and those who haven't won't find a better excuse to try the game.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Frustrating at the beginning, after a little while we'll get used to the gameplay mechanics and then, we will be able yo enjoy this puzzle game. It's quite entertaining and challenging, and thus, recommended for those looking for this kind of experiences on 3DS.

    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.

    From a apparently simple mechanic, this game will evolve becoming something very addictive and challenging. The different modes and the ability to create and share levels will bring us many hours of fun.

    Although it is not as technically advanced as other downloadable games of the consoles, and the control is sometimes frustrating, it is a good opportunity for war action fans to revive one of the classics of the genre.

    Like the previous versions, Bejeweled is again one of the best puzzle games of the year, thanks to its collection of minigames for everyone. A very addictive game, which only flaw is the lack of a multiplayer mode.

    It is exactly what we expected: a classic graphic adventure, continuing the trilogy and improving everything we saw in the first episode. We really miss having it localized –into Spanish in our case– but still is a great choice we're sure you'll enjoy.

    Bigger and better than ever, Dead Rising remains true to its conception, and becomes one of the most entertaining games of the Xbox One. It is not the most shocking game in the visual field, but it's very, very fun, and that's what matters.

    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.

    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Despite not being the best game in the series, this is a complete adaptation of the title, kind of a "Game of the year" edition of the original. Its new features hardly justify an acquisition if you already have the original version, but if you don't this is a great RPG for the PSVITA.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is a great shoot'em up but only recommended for hardcore fans of the genre. Its difficulty is insane, and although very satisfying when we overcome a level, it is frustrating most of the time.
