From £25, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC
The third in the Far Cry series, with a set-up which can make you think that you're really prowling the paradise island shores.
£31.99, PlayStation Vita
The graphics on this PS3-to-PSV game are mediocre to just plain awful, but somehow that's part of the charm.
£49, Wii U

£1.99, iOS, PC, Steam

From £39.99, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC
It's all about the nano-suit here, a bullet flinging leviathan spewing out rounds of ammunition like there's no tomorrow.
