    Enjoyable and thrilling while it lasts but also all too short and a shade too easy for those with any sort of skill in the genre, it's one that will surely hit the spot to while away an afternoon. Just don't expect it to last all that much longer than that.

    Tembo has an arsenal of flashy and destructive moves at his disposal, but he's a bit too stubborn to be considered a badass of the absolute highest order.

    Spectra is a missed opportunity that doesn't offer nearly enough variation to keep players enticed for very long.

    We're not exactly seeing what the wait was for when it comes to F1 2015. The game is clearly rushed, riddled with bugs and lacking in some relatively basic features.

    If you liked Zuma – which unfortunately for Sparkle Unleashed now runs on Xbox One via backward compatibility – you'll probably enjoy the challenge this provides, even if there isn't anything majorly groundbreaking going on.

    Payday 2: Crimewave Edition is an embarrassing, broken release that should be avoided by consumers and is a black eye on the current state of video game publishing.

    It's entirely possible to extract the occasional thrill from the swift racing action, mostly thanks to solid controls and a few well-designed tracks, but stomaching all the bumps in the road along the way make it likely you'll want to get your thrills elsewhere.

    For the same price, there are much better individual ports available on Xbox 360 that will scratch your shooter itch.

    By incorporating the Batmobile into the mix and tastefully building on established mechanics, Rocksteady Studios have simultaneously freshened up and rounded out the open-world formula of Arkham City, making Arkham Knight the most complete Batman experience to date.

    Le Tour De France 2015 has a relatively steep learning curve that those who aren't cycling aficionados may find to be just a little bit too steep to be going on with. Those who are bitten by the game will find that there's a good deal of enjoyment to be had and we have to take our hats off to the developers for making the long, drawn-out races as exciting as they've managed to do.

    While the remaster may not fix all of the flaws of the original game, it does manage to breathe new life into one of Capcom's most beloved series.

    Beach Buggy Racing is a decent attempt at bringing a kart racer to the Xbox One.
    • 83 Metascore

    This is one platform game that should not be missed.

    What it comes down to is that, even though it's a redesigned version of its mobile counterpart, BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition is experimental and rich enough to justify its existence on a home console.
    • 71 Metascore

    It may never reach the high points of a Metal Gear Solid or Thief game, but it does provide a constant helping of highly polished fun.

    If you stick with it until the end, you'll be blown away by its engrossing world, riveting characters, and deep combat system. It's a crowning achievement from the developers, and it's a definite contender for game of the year.

    Few games fully realize their potential. Thankfully The Swapper is able to execute all of its ideas. The challenging and thought-provoking puzzles are only outdone by the rich narrative which will stay in your mind well after the credits roll. The Swapper is a masterpiece that needs to be experienced.

    Despite having quite a few moments of frustration, Schrödinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark features enough high points to make it a very enjoyable experience.

    There are a few moments that visually provide a nice atmosphere, but it really needed more of them to help spice things up.

    At a budget price this would be a tough sell. At $50/£40 though, you can leave this one for the birds.

    Mega Coin Squad is a superbly entertaining title.

    Rogue Legacy is one of the best indies available on Xbox One, and you should do what you can to become a part of its family tree – its zany, amusing, dysfunctional family tree.

    Slice Zombies for Kinect is a solidly-made product that does everything it claims to. The problem is simply that it doesn't claim to do very much. It works well and is enjoyable enough while it lasts, but with just a single game mode and very little variation on that, you'd have to become pretty addicted to get any sort of long-term playability out of it.

    Your mileage may vary depending on how much the story grabs you, but most will find that the asking price here is too high for what you get.

    Even if it may be flawed, Lifeless Planet is a game that wanted to do something different and that desire should be celebrated.

    Ultratron is a slick twin-stick shooter with some great and novel ideas at its core. The initially laid out challenge is a pretty simple one, meaning that some players will ultimately be left wanting. Achievement hunters and score hunters will absolutely relish what's in front of them, however.

    It undoubtedly has the ability to grab players and take them on an outstanding tour of Simply Mad's racing world, and does look absolutely stunning at times. However, the game is ultimately frustrating with a controller and features more than its fair share of bugs.

    This is the table you're looking for – Star Wars Rebels mixes excellent design, addictive action, and a flashy presentation, making it an essential purchase for fans of pinball.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    There's scope here for a good game were a bit more work put in, but the smart money says that you'll be way more frustrated with Project Root's patently unfair gameplay than you are impressed by it.

    Age of Ultron is safer and more predictable than Pinball FX2's best tables, and therefore it doesn't sell itself as being essential.
