    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable companion piece to Cuphead, but despite some fantastic enemy designs the single-mindedness and lack of visual variety doesn’t have quite the same charm.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A deeply flawed open world role-player but also an extremely ambitious and unique one, whose approach to co-op play and survival deserves further iteration.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not a game that particularly needed a remaster but that in itself speaks to the quality of the original and the potential of the new sequel.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Even a high-quality remaster such as this can’t hide the fact that Assassin’s Creed III is too much a product of its time and has little to offer modern gaming.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An ashamedly old school role-player that nevertheless does its best to attract new players and entertain existing fans.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another highly competent Yoshi platformer that looks great and plays well, especially in co-op, but there’s a disappointing lack of innovation beyond the charming visuals.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The Walking Dead finishes much as it began, with believable characters making heartbreaking choices, interspersed with flounderingly inept, QTE-laden attempts at action.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Its demands on players is as great as any FromSoftware game but persevere and Sekiro reveals itself as the most rewarding and nuanced ninja game in decades.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A perfectly constructed neo-arcade game from genre master Vlambeer, which perfectly marries twin-stick shooters with roguelike punishment.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An inspired homage to old school Ninja Gaiden games, with a clever blending of genres and near perfect retro graphics and music.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An unambitious but competent sequel that already has some of the best endgame content of any similar game… if you can stomach the offensively apolitical, and thoroughly boring, storytelling.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A hugely original puzzler that relies on raw logic in a way only a video game could, providing some of the most satisfyingly open-ended challenges of the generation.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A loving piece of fan service that looks and sounds just like the anime, but unfortunately it plays like a bad Xbox 360 era open world game.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    One of the best looking point ‘n’ click adventures ever made, but the unique visuals don’t compensate for illogical puzzles and a weak script.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best Kirby games becomes frayed around the edges on the 3DS, with no co-op mode and some poorly thought out extras that would be better off left out.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A staggeringly ambitious, gun-free immersive reality detective game set in an alternate 1980s Britain, whose admirable intentions are undermined by technical problems.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A game bursting with interesting ideas but dragged down by a lack of technical competence and some very outdated ideas about game design and controls.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A cheap and nasty film tie-in that reaches a new low for Lego games and stands in stark contrast to the creativity of the movie and the toys.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A perfectly judged comeback that’s full of all the wild invention and stylish mayhem fans demand but proves surprisingly accessible and varied for everyone else.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Sadly, with only 41 puzzles – more are coming soon – it’s over too quickly, but while it lasts this is a highly amusing and completely free slice of mobile gaming goodness.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Its pleasing synth tunes and unusual gameplay are immediately alluring, but that optimism is swiftly trampled by a difficulty level that starts tricky and rapidly becomes sadistic, the overwhelming flurry of notes requiring taps so fast that the music gets lost under an ecstasy of fumbling. It’s always a pity when fresh and interesting ideas don’t quite work, but unfortunately Sonar Beat never manages to live up to its considerable promise.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The Trese Brothers have done an excellent job porting this from PC, and none of its wonderful depth and complexity has been lost in translation. Like FTL, this feels as though it was made to be played on an iPad. Whether you decide to work as a trader, explorer, glorified taxi driver, or become a pirate yourself, the sheer scale and open-endedness of Star Traders: Frontiers is never less than inspiring.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Although instantly gripping, its heavy reliance on chance and your limited agency – you only ever decide which order to play the five cards you’re randomly dealt – make it feel a little too much like gambling rather than a game of skill. With no deck building and encounters decided on die rolls, Knights Of The Card Table struggles to sustain its appeal.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The lack of challenge and the fact that you can complete the campaign for free but get roasted in multiplayer without paid upgrades are symptoms of a deep-seated mediocrity. It may be slick, but it’s a peculiarly empty experience.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A sequel that seems somewhat embarrassed of the series’ sexist past and shallow combat but fails to do anything meaningful about either.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    As loving a recreation of the Mega Drive original as fans could ever hope for, but without any major evolution of the concept it has far less to offer anyone else.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fantastically entertaining action game that combines gameplay, visuals, and audio into an irresistible orgy of violence and… improvisational jazz.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An already flawed game struggles with the limitations of joypad controls – but it’s a spirited effort and further proof that strategy titles do work on consoles.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Some unfortunate flaws unnecessarily sour the experience, but this is a welcome return for the Trials series and its unique approach to motorcycle action.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A fantastic mix of explosive action and thoughtful storytelling, that results in one of the most unpredictable and ambitious action role-players of the modern era.
