    Nothing new, but it works. It's fun, entertaining and polished, so if you're looking for fast and simple action, give it a try.

    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.

    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.

    A pleasant surprise in the downloadable games library. It mixes elements from strategy and action games, achieving a really addictive combination, with twenty levels that provide many hours of fun.

    You, Me and The Cubes offers, like every good puzzle game, a simple and addictive experience, attractive by itself, without many complications.
    • 79 Metascore

    If you have some friends to play a shooter with, this is a great choice. It's not perfect, but is bigger and better than the previous one, which means even more fun.

    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.

    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.

    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
    • 90 Critic Score
    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
    • 82 Critic Score
    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
    • 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.

    • 84 Critic Score
    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
    • 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.

    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
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's very original and fun, even though sometimes might be boring and its free-to-play nature will not please everyone. However, we think it deserves a serious try.
    • 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

    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.

    This is the version PC users should have played the first time. Controls might feel a bit outdated, but the experience is still as good as it was originally on GameCube.

    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Offers one of the best single player campaigns we've seen in years. Entertaining, different, intense, spectacular and with really memorable moments.

    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.

    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.

    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.
