    Scribblenauts Unlimited

    Still structurally lacking, but there's no denying Unlimited's appeal. The idea of Scribblenauts is ingenious - think of any object, type in its name, and it appears in the game world - but so far the execution has been lacking.... more

    LEGO City: Undercover

    It's not the game that will make the world sit up and take notice of Wii U, but Lego City Undercover is one hell of an easy game to root for. Chase McCain is a dude. He really is. As the yellow-headed undercover cop hot... more

    Injustice: Gods Among Us

    It's Mortal Kombat's shell but with Batman. And everything's better with Batman... Statements I never thought I'd write down #1: Injustice: Gods Among Us and BioShock Infinite start in exactly the same way. By that I don't... more

    Resident Evil Revelations

    Revelations on consoles is a great port of a good game that is well worth picking up. Resident Evil: Revelations originally came out on the 3DS last year and was far better than its bigger budget brother, Resident Evil 6.... more

    Cloudberry Kingdom

    A pleasant addition to any digital library, albeit a slightly overpriced one. As a man who actively supports others who dare to play through a game on 'easy' (sometimes it's alright to just enjoy the experience), Cloudberry... more

    Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag

    Flawed yet addictive, Assassin's Creed may be in need of a change. Editor's Note: The below review is based on the PS4 version of Black Flag. Having played the PS3 version for around three hours in comparison, players should... more

    Call of Duty: Ghosts

    Diminishing with every return, Ghosts' addictive nature is tempered by over-familiarity. On PS4 and Xbox One it may be, but Ghosts is a current-generation game. In fact, it's the current-gen game, the one that defined systems... more

    The Cave

    Ron Gilbert's latest might have been on his mind for the last 30 years, but The Cave is a deft combination of old and new, classic and modern. Ron Gilbert claims to have had the idea for The Cave bouncing around his skull... more

    New Super Luigi U

    Proves just how smart and ahead of the pack Nintendo are with level design and gameplay. There was once a time when Luigi was nothing but a palette swap. In the last decade or so, however, he's really stepped out of his brother's... more

    Splinter Cell: Blacklist

    Splinter Cell: Blacklist may not be for those who want a purer Sam Fisher experience, but it's still very good. If you were unsure about Splinter Cell: Conviction, I cannot begin to fathom what your thoughts towards Blacklist... more

    The Wonderful 101

    Almost as good as Kamiya’s twitter feed. Almost. At times, The Wonderful 101 represents Platinum games at its very best. Don't be deceived by the isometric view or the cutesy looks, though: this is a Hideki Kamiya action... more

    Rayman Legends

    Rayman Legends isn't perfect, but it's still a cracking game. After shunting the recent efforts of Mario into a lurid green U-bend, Rayman Origins proved a tough act to follow. As a sequel Rayman Legends initially disappoints... more

    Pikmin 3

    A beautiful-looking and beautiful-playing video game. Trying to quantify Nintendo's magic is a thankless task, but the fact I can't stop thinking about Pikmin 3 is testament to its power. After all, this is the third game... more

    The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

    A beautiful upgrade that makes an already wonderful game even better. If proof was ever needed that you shouldn't give a flying monkey's what your audience thinks, then the Wind Waker debacle of the early 00s is it. Remember... more

    Super Mario 3D World

    The game that deserves to sell Wii Us the world over... A major and fair criticism of recent Mario games has been their inclination to keep things rather familiar. Whereas Galaxy introduced new ideas, the likes of New Super... more
