Apple’s big-screen wonder has the specs to match its looks, with huge potential for gamers and artists
The first impression of the latest entry to Apple’s tablet range – the iPad Pro (from £679, apple.com) – is of its 5.6 megapixel, 32.8cm (12.9in) screen, which surpasses the size and resolution of anything Apple has previously offered. It looks stunning. Fire up a Pro-optimised game such as The Room Three (£3.99, Fireproof, App Store) and it bursts into life. As well as the obvious aesthetic charms, with a tricksy puzzler like this, the added detail is of real benefit as you prod, poke and drag puzzle boxes around to progress. The scope of the series is expanded in its second sequel, with multiple rooms each becoming part of the puzzle rather than focusing only on the boxes themselves. It’s a satisfying development and showcased best on this new hardware.

Despite its mercenary tendencies, EA’s galactic shooter wins the war for your heart in the end
After a couple of hours with Star Wars Battlefront, it’s possible to feel a slight disturbance in the force. A tingling in the midi-chlorians. The dreaded threat of DLC – downloadable content – hangs in the air. We should have known. The moment you’re invited to purchase a season pass for your new £45 title, upon firing it up feels like a betrayal every bit as great as Greedo shooting first. But then the game takes hold. A multiplayer shooter, it captures the wonder of George Lucas’s universe, wisely focusing on ground and air battles from the original trilogy. It pits you as a Rebel or Empire trooper in up to 20 v 20 skirmishes across a variety of game modes from first- or third-person perspective over four worlds and 13 maps, with more based on the forthcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens to come for free. Scattered through the wide expanse of familiar lands are bonus icons, unlocking access to vehicles such as X-Wings and AT-ATs, and, if you’re lucky, the chance to dive in as one of six of the films’ main characters. Force-choking Rebel scum as Darth Vader has rarely been so satisfying.
