    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A competent but uninspired sequel that’s unwise to create so many obvious comparisons to Resident Evil 4, although it still manages to find some memorable moments of its own.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A successful resurrection of the iconic retro franchise, that wallows in justifiable nostalgia but still tries to keep at least one foot in the present.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    What should have been a hotchpotch of other people’s ideas, made worse by frustratingly high difficulty, is in reality one of the most cleverly designed video games of recent years, with superb action and endless replayability.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s been a long time coming but the magic of Pokémon Snap has been effectively recreated in a game that’s more challenging and engrossing than its peaceable premise suggests.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A largely successful attempt to create a more cerebral style of horror game, even if it frequently comes across as just Alien Isolation with ghosts.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A super-authentic bike racing sim that the hardcore will love. And while less experienced players may struggle at first, the effort is worth it.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A highly polished remaster of the almost-classic action role-player, that is still stuck with some of the original flaws but allows the thoughtful, and very humorous, script to shine.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A hilarious parody of point ‘n’ click adventures and video games in general, whose jokes are as inspired and imaginative as its puzzles.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    While there’s no exploration, your character effectively just walking from fight to fight down an endless corridor, the intricacy and subtlety of each combat encounter continues to deepen even after hours of play. It’s a masterclass in game design, working flawlessly on a touchscreen.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Its amusingly on-message alerts – ‘HEY NERD! You can’t build muscle just by texting! Get back to the dojo!’ – are great and being hazed, 80s style, by Johnny Lawrence remains inspiring. Sadly, the game, with its random-feeling successes and lacklustre card collecting, isn’t nearly as interesting.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    There are countdown timers, bosses are oft-repeated re-skins with identical action, and Crash’s runs soon become repetitious, with progress gated behind either a tedious grind or microtransactions. Despite its colourful palette On the Run! is almost aggressively bland.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With an addictive role-playing style meta game letting your team of golfers earn experience points to power up their various strengths, it’s a superb and highly playable addition to Apple Arcade’s line-up.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    What sounds like a silly gimmick works extremely well at immersing you into the life of another, although the technical problems can be severe.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The unique art style belies a game that is, for the most part, ruthlessly old fashioned, but in a way that will please old school Final Fantasy fans and maybe even make some new ones.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A highly enjoyable platform puzzler, with some cleverly complex set pieces and great presentation – but it lacks that final layer of polish that could have made it something really special.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A major update to the intricately plotted and highly detailed RPG, that gives players more of what they loved in the original release and the same amount of what they didn’t.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Although its reputation is as one of the better Star Wars games from the prequel era, this shallow, unengaging squad-based shooter has little to offer modern gamers.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A surprising, old school looter propped up by a contained sci-fi campaign, ferocious combat, and a modding system that encourages endless creativity.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A slightly embarrassing attempt to recall the early days of 3D platforming, with a central gimmick that never really captures the imagination and clunky controls and gameplay.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A complex space base builder remake that’s marred by inadequate tutorials, clumsy attempts at humour, and a general lack of polish.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A joyful, colourful, and hugely inventive cavalcade of co-op antics that makes superb use of having two players for both its unique challenges and unscripted hijinks.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    By perfecting the Dungeon Keeper formula, the best James Bond game since GoldenEye proves that playing the bad guy really can be more fun.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A thoroughly entertaining and highly playable Metroidvania, that goes beyond being a simple retro homage and offers some memorable gameplay twists and storytelling surprises.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A unique blend of visuals, music, gameplay, and heady story themes combine in one of the most artistically daring video games of recent years.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A fantastic tour de force for the Switch and arguably the best Monster Hunter game ever, with a huge range of features and monsters, both new and old, and great co-op gameplay.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A brief and slightly dull detective mystery set in the colourful and conversation-heavy universe of The Outer Worlds, that lacks its parent’s variety, character, and joie de vivre.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It’s amazing it runs on the hardware at all, but the performance is a huge compromise, especially in a solely competitive environment.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although simplistic, the gradual upgrade path retains an addictive magic and you can unlock new traps and extra characters, although disappointingly the latter are only cosmetically different.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    It’s a joylessly over-commercialised and entertainment free monstrosity.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It works perfectly on a touchscreen, the experience of gently manoeuvring light through each level proving engaging and oddly relaxing.
