"Even with some added superhero heft, the game isn't substantially different, or better, than its predecessor."
Last year's Madden wasn't all it could have been, but this year the series truly makes the leap to new-gen consoles.
"They encourage and reward exploration and support several different styles of play. Whether you like frenetic gunfights or tactical stealth, you will find what you need here."
"The new maps in Titanfall are all decent, and if you're still playing the game, you'd do well to pick them up."
"It's a solid if unspectacular game, low on content and complexity, but ultimately playable enough for it not to be a write-off."
"While the campaign is shorter than before, Rebellion has done a decent job of fleshing out the game as a whole."
"Imagine if the Beano or Dandy devoted themselves to realistic World War I comic strips. There's no punches pulled here, and certain sub-chapters are hard to stomach."
"In the end, this is a pale copy of UFC Undisputed 2010, and lacks the fine polish, personality and balanced game modes of that title."
"Machine Games hasn't crafted the perfect shooter, but they've given it a good go and the results are decent."
"Super Time Force is one of the great exclusive titles heading to Microsoft's consoles this year."
"Typical movie tie-in fodder. What a shame."
"The bike balancing is still perfect, tracks the right side of tricky, the worlds rich in detail. And we'll go against popular consensus - the music's brilliant."
"Titanfall's a damn fine multiplayer shooter worth your time and money: that's the bottom line."
"It's a much better game than you'd think. But we can't help but feel this would have made a better case as a Xbox Live Arcade title rather than a (nearly) full-priced retail release."
"Yes, it's got issues, and no, it's not perfect, but underneath some suffocating design decisions is a really solid game."
Capcom's cyber-ninja returns on digital.
"It's hard not to be excited by this title, one that feels so fresh compared to past titles and is the best take on a movie tie-in we've seen in a while."
"For the most part it's pretty fun to play. However, there's no Master Chief and it's no masterpiece."
"It doesn't matter how pretty it is when the rest of the package is lacking in every other conceivable department."
"War as entertainment is something that we've acclimatised to through multiple generations and mediums. Prisoners of war and human trafficking however, is a different issue entirely."
"FIFA 14 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is not a true next-gen FIFA, however, it is a fantastic football game."
"In trying to ape something that's beautifully bad, Twisted Pixel has inadvertently made something that's not very good."
"While the combat system works fine, and is suitably gory, after a while you're just going through the motions."
"Turn 10's Xbox One racer is the next-gen launch title we've been waiting for."
"For those seeking a return to the comedy thrills of past iterations, there's enough of that original spirit here for that to still be possible, despite the grittier tone."
"Killer Instinct is a technically complicated fighter, and it's deep despite the shallow pool of characters."
"The repeated objectives and clunky controls detract from what could have been a better experience."
"There are plenty of features but it's rarely a hefty challenge. It's a game to be enjoyed at a relaxed pace, an experience to celebrate and share because it's so refreshingly pleasant."
"If you have never had much time for the Lego games before now, this one won't change your mind. But if you know the difference between Dormammu and Deadpool, you'll be right at home here."
"As it stands we cannot fully endorse a purchase if you own last year's edition and you're not a die-hard fan of the series - though this may change come the next-gen versions."
