Forza Horizon 4 Review

By this stage, it should come as no surprise that Playground Games finds a way to raise the bar for each release in the Horizon series, and they've once again found another gear in Forza Horizon 4.

Super Street: The Game Review

No, “Super Street” is not a direct-to-video movie; it’s a magazine dedicated to (super) street racing. Because when I’m reading a magazine, I often dream about why there can’t be video games based on them. Please, Cosmo?

TerraTech Review

Imagine if you could build tanks on Minecraft? Well, that's basically what TerraTech does. Use blocks and resources found in the world to create your vehicle and take out enemies.

3on3 FreeStyle Review

It’s time to lace up your favorite pair of sneakers because 3on3 FreeStyle is available on Xbox. Is this free to play title a swish or a miss?

NBA 2K19 Review

NBA 2K19 is back for a new season. Thanks to small quality of life changes and a few cool new ways to play, it remains the best sports sim pound for pound, but its commitment to in-game currency still feels quite awful.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots Review

When stolen carrots are at stake, there's only one thing to do: send in a rabbit and fox ninja duo with enough weapons to start World War III.

Sigi - A Fart for Melusina Review

Sigi - A Fart for Melusina will have you running, jumping, farting, and defeating monsters on your quest to save the damsel in distress, Melusina. Don't be fooled though, this journey isn't an arduous one.

Dead Cells Review

Dead Cells is a roguevania, meaning it could be the mutant offspring of Spelunky and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night with Dark Souls for a godparent. And it usually works out to be as exciting as that sounds.

Persian Nights: Sands of Wonders Review

Artifex Mundi decided to hit us with a surprise standalone release. Persian Nights: Sands of Wonders might have an independent story, but it has very familiar gameplay despite a couple of minor attempts at improvements.

Armored Warfare Review

A welcome addition to the tank genre but be prepared to put many battle hours into the title as you work through the technology tree improving your tanks and crew. On the plus side, it will be a labor of love for those that do.

NASCAR Heat 3 Review

Racing in circles or triangles shouldn't be all that much fun and yet Monster Games have managed to make the sport just that. Building on last year's title, the team has added more content which NASCAR fans are certain to enjoy.

V-Rally 4 Review

Since they took over the WRC series four years ago, Kylotonn Games has been an underdog in the genre, but with V-Rally 4 it's clear they've created what is undoubtedly the best rally game of this generation.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Review

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is meant to conclude a three-act play telling Lara Croft's reimagined origin story. It's worth seeing if you've liked the first two, although it does, ironically, play things pretty safely sometimes.

F1 2018 Review

With core essentials of the game nailed last year, Codemasters has pushed the game further bringing the Formula 1 circus to life more than any other title. The best has just got better again.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Review

PUBG is admittedly a game that’s poorly designed in many ways and sometimes even non-functional. It’s also one of the best gaming experiences I’ve ever had.

Planet Alpha Review

Planet Alpha's gameplay is terrible, the whole thing goes on far too long, and it's a hodgepodge of haphazard mechanics and encounters to the point where it's impossible to tell what this game was supposed to be.

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier Review

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier has players following a story of conflict between an ape tribe and a human town, and it allows you to play for both sides. Through your choices, the game can end in peace or in violence.

We Happy Few Review

The full release of the game now gives players access to the entire storyline. The thing is, a myriad of technical issues and design decisions means it feels like the game is still trying to find its potential.

Strange Brigade Review

While some games aim to challenge what you thought you knew about storytelling or gameplay, plenty of others exist just for fun. Strange Brigade is one such game. It's simple, mindless fun, and what's wrong with that?

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Review

The world of Divinity is exceedingly vast, but it's full to the brim with meaningful content that you'll enjoy exploring through for dozens or even hundreds of hours.

The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 1 Review

Clementine is back for the final season of a story that began six years ago. For fans, that's a fun proposition all by itself, and though the finale isn't the best episode in the series, there's enough to warrant one last trip.

Super Destronaut DX Review

Super Destronaut DX is a nostalgic game that will fulfil the needs of anyone who is missing the old days of Space Invaders, but unfortunately, there's little else on offer here.

Defenders of Ekron Review

It’s a fun mix of twin-stick shmup and anime that offers many unique challenges served simultaneously with far too many tropes to make a package that’s enjoyable but not amazing.

The Mooseman Review

The Mooseman succeeds in creating an educational experience that focuses on the ancient myths of Finno-Ugric tribes. The information provided enhances the storyline, but the gameplay leaves a bit to be desired.

Madden NFL 19 Review

Annual sports games often get criticized for being the same thing every year, providing too few interesting changes. That's rarely the case, but it unfortunately applies to Madden NFL 19, which lacks any major improvements.

Insane Robots Review

Insane Robots is a deceptively simple card battle game with roguelite turn-based strategy elements built on a play-to-win model rather than pay-to-win.

The Banner Saga 3 Review

The Banner Saga 3 concludes Stoic's Norse-fantasy trilogy in remarkable fashion. Fast to the end and consistently affecting, this threequel cements the series as one of gaming's great trilogies. It should not be missed.

Overcooked! 2 Review

Offering a co-op experience a step above any of its contemporaries, Overcooked! 2 learns from the mistakes of its predecessor and delivers an exceptional experience that’s a joy to play with friends and family.

No Man's Sky Review

By now, everyone has heard of No Man's Sky and often for the wrong reasons. Whatever the game was or wasn't when it launched two years ago, today's it's an exciting universe of possibilities... once you get off the ground.

The Spectrum Retreat Review

The Spectrum Retreat is a simple puzzler that sees your character trapped in a never-ending cycle that you must help them break out of.

MXGP Pro Review

MXGP Pro is an improved title that fulfills a number of wishes from the fans and fixes some of the issues that have marred previous releases. There are still some minor issues along the way, but it's a solid motocross title.

Danger Zone 2 Review

Crash mode may have been pioneered by Burnout, but Danger Zone is bringing it back. It’s simple, but there’s a certain joy to creating catastrophic wrecks that other games simply can’t match.

Mugsters Review

Despite the game's colourful look, physics-based gameplay, and numerous explosions, Mugsters ends up feeling like it should be more exciting than it actually is.

Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion Review

Adventure Time, come on grab your friends. We'll go to very distant lands. Those distant lands this time mean a semi-open world as Fin and Jake explore a land of pirates and conspiracies to upend the land of Ooo.

Earthfall Review

Earthfall wears its Left 4 Dead similarities like a badge of honor. That wouldn't be so bad since L4D3 seems so unlikely. Sadly, Earthfall rarely rises to the brilliance of its inspiration, making for merely a decent clone.

Candle: The Power of the Flame Review

With challenging puzzles and a unique art style, the game promises to be different to the platformers and adventure titles we've seen recently, and while it isn't perfect, it is a breath of fresh air.

Yet Another Zombie Defense HD Review

It's a game so unabashedly dull that its name isn't even a name, but rather a pointed statement letting you know there's nothing interesting going on here. If only I had listened.

The Crew 2 Review

The Crew 2 is an ambitious follow up for Ivory Tower that doesn’t quite hit its full potential or the level of some other open-world racers available today.

Eventide 3: Legacy of Legends Review

Following on from the events of Eventide 2, Eventide 3: Legacy of Legends ends the trilogy with a tale that blends reality with a fantasy world in a fitting conclusion to the series.

All-Star Fruit Racing Review

Fans of kart racers have a few to choose from on Xbox One, but maybe none are as good as All-Star Fruit Racing. With a vibrant color palette, great track variety, and plenty of game modes, it's a deliciously sweet arcade racer.

Bomber Crew Review

Bomber Crew has a cheerful and charming exterior, beneath which lurks a complex and challenging survival simulator with roguelite elements.

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered Review

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered won't be winning any awards for Remaster of the Year, but blowing stuff up is still so much fun that it works.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Review

In a generation full of remasters, what may have felt like nostalgia for some games has often turned to fatigue, but in the case of Crash Bandicoot, this trilogy of gorgeous remakes is deserved and mostly still holds up.

Jurassic World Evolution Review

Just in time with the latest movie in the Jurassic World Trilogy, Jurassic World Evolution lets you take control of various parks scattered across the islands from the series. How you handle things is completely up to you.

NieR: Automata Review

Automata is not just another good game, it is a masterpiece of Japanese game-making that weaves a story with the gameplay in a way quite unlike anything you've ever played.

LEGO The Incredibles Review

Another family movie means another LEGO adaptation. This time it's the latest Pixar effort, The Incredibles 2, getting the bricks and minifigure treatment. Like all LEGO games, you probably know what you're getting here.

MotoGP 18 Review

MotoGP 18 is a solid racing title built on a new engine which shows off all of Milestone's strong points whilst simultaneously reminding us of some of their weaker points too.

Shift Quantum Review

Shift Quantum keeps the same gameplay premise of the titles that preceded it, yet it feels much more than a flash game on a big screen.

Aragami: Shadow Edition Review

Inspired by Tenchu and Dishonored, Aragami: Shadow Edition is a third person action-oriented stealth game that bucks the trend of making open combat as viable as stealth gameplay.
