Little Nightmares 2 review

If you enjoyed the creepy world of the first Little Nightmares, you'll love Little Nightmares 2. It's a tension-fuelled ride filled with grotesque horrors and wonderfully atmospheric locations. You won't want it to end.

The Medium review

Bloober Team's psychological thriller The Medium is here at last, channeling Silent Hill via Polish surrealist art to deliver a narrative experience which is flawed yet fascinating.

Hitman 3 review

The final game in the trilogy doesn't deviate much in terms of gameplay when compared to Hitman 2, but more fantastically designed levels, improved visuals, and a fitting conclusion to Agent 47's story makes Hitman 3 a must-play.

Immortals Fenyx Rising review

It might not be called Gods and Monsters any more, but it still has both those things in abundance. Look past the terrible title and corny dialogue to find arguably Ubisoft's strongest game of the year...

The Falconeer (Xbox Series X) review

With plenty of big-budget games available for Xbox Series X|S at launch, it's easy to skip over the smaller ones. The Falconeer is a good indie title that shouldn't be missed, even if it does fly too close to the sun on occasion.

Watch Dogs: Legion review

DedSec has made its way across the pond in Watch Dogs: Legion, and while the dystopian London it presents makes for a compelling setting, the game suffers from a flawed gameplay mechanic and legions of bugs.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps review: Ori's world is changing

A five year wait since Ori and the Blind Forest will prove to be more than worth it: Ori and the Will of the Wisps is an epic sequel, with a bigger world, new abilities, new characters, and a new challenge for an older Ori.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order review – a new hope

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order felt like a bit of a gamble for both Respawn and EA, an attempt to put out a single-player Star Wars game without courting controversy and tarnishing the brand. Somehow they managed it.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter Review

Frogwares has taken the best bits from Crimes and Punishments and has added to them for The Devil's Daughter. The problem is that these additions aren't always good.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Campaign Review

Infinity Ward has created one of the best campaigns found in a Call of Duty game since the original Modern Warfare. However, shocking and graphic moments somewhat take away from the experience.

Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King Review

Our reviewer has fond memories of The Lion King on the Mega Drive, but that nostalgia can't save this new bundled collection. Lacklustre packaging only serves to highlight the games' low points.

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Review

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville neatly captures the overall direction of the series as a whole; a little new growth, a little decay, and plenty of soil still left to fertilize.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Review: Ghosts-as-a-Service

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a stadium-sized game hosting a mediocre sports team. While Wildlands set a bold new direction for the long-running series, Breakpoint doesn't carry the torch far enough.

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series Review

Telltale's The Walking Dead has one of the most storied and often tumultuous histories of any video game saga ever made. This final package from Skybound will feel redundant for casual fans, but the diehards will love it.

Man of Medan Review: Shipped Too Soon

Man of Medan is a game we want to love – for all of its B-movie nonsense, there’s a “so bad it’s good” vibe that would be entertaining for playing in couch co-op. Sadly, it doesn't even meet those minimal standards.

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Review

Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age is a remaster of a game that was once revolutionary but in modern times misses heavily on the story and has to rely on its gameplay to be worth recommending.

Layers of Fear 2 Review: A Spooky Sequel That's Lost At Sea

Layers of Fear 2 heads on a spooky nautical adventure, but for most of the experience the story and level design seems to be treading water. Are there enough thrills and chills to justify stepping aboard?

Team Sonic Racing Review: Middle of the Pack Family Fun

Sumo Digital gave SEGA fans two good arcade racers during the previous console generation. They're back with a third entry now, but this time only Sonic's crew comes for the ride. The end result is another good effort.

Void Bastards stunned viewers when it debuted during December's Game Awards ceremony, and now that it's out it will surely do that again. It's a stylish, polished, and brilliantly executed video game virtually all should play.
