    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly unadventurous sequel, given the long years fans have been waiting for it, but the entertaining weaponry just about makes up for the overfamiliarity and obnoxious sense of humour.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As unique a vision as video gaming has ever seen and one able to use its many incompetencies – including an unfortunate number of new ones – to entertain and surprise.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It may sound like a copout, but it makes swords and daggers (and combat sandals) viable and maintains the sense of speed without having to repeatedly stab at the screen. It also supports MFI controllers for those preferring the original experience, and remains a defining and hugely addictive piece of entertainment.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Despite graphical sparkle, the lack of depth and vapid gacha mechanics rob the game of both charm and longevity, leaving the long slog only to those obsessed with completing their trainer roster despite the crushing tedium.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are spikes to avoid, water-filled areas that make your eyeball buoyant, enemies with shields and others that intermittently catch fire, falling rocks, sticky web-firing spiders, mid-level bosses, actual bosses, and lots more to spice up this highly unusual ocular adventure.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If you’ve played it before, it’s a relatively brief experience that most certainly bears repeating. For those who haven’t, the first time is a joy we’d recommend to just about anyone.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are regular moments in dungeons when the 3D viewpoint gets in the way, and you’ll need to grind a fair bit, but these are relatively minor niggles when set against compelling battles, great art style, and an inspiringly large world to explore. It even has a New Game+ for those who just can’t let go.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It’s fun to play and early progression is swift and reasonably satisfying. The problem is that it’s nowhere near as good as Clash Royale, with less identifiable units, a clunkier interface, and a slower pace of play.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Because your party doesn’t auto-heal, anyone with that skill swiftly becomes indispensable, although you can mix and match team members depending on the enemies you face. The real problem is that without new ideas, this no-frills dungeon crawler is possibly a little too generic for its own good.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The result is a self-propelled investigation that gives you the feeling of making connections and discoveries entirely on your own. It’s hypnotic, and while it has little replay value, other than to marvel at the fact that videos watched early in the game can mean something completely different once you’ve uncovered protagonists’ back stories and true motivations, it’s utterly gripping while it lasts.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The combat is a lot of fun and the visuals are dynamic and exciting, but repetitive missions and dire storytelling ruin what is otherwise a mechanically superior giant robot game.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Yet another triumph on the pitch but the lack of attention to new features within myClub means it feels a bit repetitive.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the most interesting video game settings of the year and while the game has numerous issues the strong combat and inventive quest design make it well worth persevering with.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An accomplished attempt to create a mix of Dark Souls and traditional Metroidvania, but its bizarre visual style ultimately overshadows its other virtues.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still one of the few video games to deal with love and relationships in anything like a realistic manner, but the attempts to shoehorn in an extra new character fall flat.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fantastic scrolling beat ‘em-ups that shows exactly how the genre can be evolved and modernised, while also indulging in some gloriously retro presentation and throwbacks.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s no longer the Diablo killer it used to be, but this remains a superior dungeon crawler, with great action and loot that still puts it amongst the genre’s best.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An essential addition for any Monster World fan that offers a mountain of genuinely new content that includes some of the game’s best monsters.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The attempts to innovate in terms of storytelling and structure feel superficial and ineffective, leaving Gears 5 to survive purely on its increasingly overfamiliar action.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best story-based games of the year, that manages to capture the joys and pains of childhood (and riding bikes) in a very relatable and compelling way.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An uneven mix of tense psychological drama and buggy, half-broken gameplay mechanics but the end result is still one of the better movie tie-ins of recent years.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Episode 4 is a definite step forward though and the hints about what will happen in the fifth and final episode suggests it may be the most politically charged of all.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fantastic blast from the past that remasters a long-forgotten classic that should now be recognised as one of the best scrolling beat ‘em-ups ever.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A tiresome and unforgiving survival game that purposefully makes things as difficult and repetitive as possible, while offering very little in the way of entertainment.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Combining Until Dawn’s style of mild horror with online multiplayer works great, but the actual story and characters fail to engage.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Not only one of the best racing games of the generation but for once one that feels genuinely different to any of its major rivals – unless you count spiritual predecessor FlatOut.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Another classic action game from Platinum that’s so full of ideas it seems fit to burst and yet everything not only works perfectly but is filled with an infectious sense of goofy fun.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The flawed storytelling squanders its full potential but even with a few missteps this is still one of the most enjoyable action games of the year.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Hotline Miami remains one of the best indie games of the last decade but its deeply disappointingly sequel drags down this otherwise welcome compilation.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Like everything to do with No Man’s Sky, the VR and multiplayer additions aren’t without their problems, but this is still a clear step forward for the constantly evolving sci-fi epic.
