There are some slight issues, for instance the usually slick controls start to falter when R1 is used for climbing, or grappling - but also shooting when holding a weapon. Or perhaps you could question some of the loading times, especially when visiting Zom Zom's store to purchase costumes. But these are minor gripes that don't even come close to ruining one of the best platformers money can buy.
Fundamentally there are improvements, but the game doesn't feel completely balanced as a whole and the pace of matches is sometimes uneven. It happens often between console generations and while FIFA 14 on Xbox One is certainly no cheap port of the current-gen edition - I can't help but think that the next rendition will truly take the franchise to the next level.
For real FIFA fans, you'll want this latest update not just for all of the new content, but also for the finer adjustments and improved goalkeeper AI. For more casual fans however, there might not be enough glaringly obvious updates from last year's edition to do a Mexican wave for.
Despite these niggles, FIFA 16 brings exciting football to life and being able to control the ball better and run at defenders with confidence makes for some thrilling game time. As expected with FIFA - the soundtrack is appropriately diverse and appealing, and there isn't any noticeable lag online yet either. It's a worthy step-up from FIFA 15 by fine-tuning small aspects of the game, but not compromising the formula fans have grown to love.
As a welcome gesture to the original classic, the Definitive Edition also includes nostalgic Dante and Vergil costumes. Overall, if you missed DmC when it arrived in 2013 and fancy a hack'n'slash game along the lines of Bayonetta or Ninja Gaiden, then this PS4 edition is certainly the best way to experience the game.
Rocksmith is worth checking out for intermediate guitarists, especially if you're of a generation that recognises a lot of the artists in the track-listing. It's also worth a shot if you're an accomplished player, but for complete new-comers to guitar who have never picked one up before, it might pay to get a few of the very basics down with a tutor (or knowledgeable friend) first.
There are already plenty of add-on sets due for release in the coming months, including packs featuring Aquaman, Doc Brown, and Bart Simpson; and with LEGO's brand presence and ability to attract franchises, there is no limit to what might be around the corner. So if your wallet is equally limitless, there is a lot of good old fashioned family fun to be had here.
Yes, Skylanders will make your wallet cry out for mercy, and parents the world over are probably dreading their kids' Christmas Wish Lists this year. But their latest offering, Trap Team, is more than just a money grab. It's one of the most polished, expansive (expensive?) platformers available and is sure to entertain a wide audience, both young and old if you have the cheddar to keep up.
