With its mix of post-apocalyptic adventure and vehicular combat there can be few film franchises that are so obviously videogame-friendly as Mad Max. Which makes it surprising that it's taken so long for gamers to get the chance to jump into Max's boots.

Being huge fans of the Godzilla films, the idea of taking control of Japan's King of the Monsters and rampaging through cities while doing battle with some of his most iconic enemies sounded like videogame nirvana. However, after sitting down with Namco Bandai's new Godzilla game for a few hours, there was only one thing on our mind: how had the developer got everything so disastrously wrong?

Most manga fans' idea of heaven, this beat 'em-up brings together an extensive roster of 52 characters (39 of whom are playable) from 32 different stories that have been serialised in the best-selling Weekly Shonen Jump anthology magazine in Japan.

If Mario Bava was making videogames today, we suspect he’d be producing something like Bloodborne. This third-person action-role-player is crawling with Euro-horror inflections, an unsettling miasma of confusing cobbled streets and Gothic architecture, demons, monsters and were-things.

This steampunk actioner is the most overtly cinematic game yet released for the PS4. Set in an alternate Victorian reality, it pitches werewolves against the descendants of the Knights of the Round Table, against a backdrop of incongruous tech and Ripper lore. In many ways, The Order: 1886 is the best film Paul W.S. Anderson never made.

With Ubisoft focusing the bulk of its  attention on the next-gen Assassin's Creed: Unity in the run-up to Christmas, this PS3/Xbox 360 instalment in the best-selling franchise feels like something of an afterthought by comparison.

The most expansive adventure yet for the brick-built caped crusader and his trusty companion see them venture out of Gotham and into deep space for a romp that utilises 150 characters from the DC Universe, each with their own quirks and powers. Indeed, it’s this inspired choice of Justice League and related cast members (including Adam West!) that makes this kidult title such fun.

This compilation of all things Halo will be a no-brainer for Xbox gamers who have grown up under the FPS tutelage of the Master Chief. All the original games have been remastered for inclusion (which means they still play exactly like they did originally but there’s more texture to the visuals) and there’s a planet-load of extras to explore, too. Featured are Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4 campaigns, with all multiplayer and DLC content including more than 100 multiplayer and Spartan Ops maps. The package also includes the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta. As a value proposition it’s phenomenal.
