Just Cause 4 Review

Just Cause 4 is the best game in the series so far, although it doesn't come without some issues in various areas. Thankfully, it gets its most important elements right, making the game Avalanche's most ambitious yet.

Fallout 76 Review

Fallout 76's multiplayer features are welcome additions to the series, but they come at the expense of storytelling and story-driven elements that fans have come to expect from the franchise.

Darksiders III Review

Gunfire Games has forged a new title that is not only worthy of being a part of the series, it improves upon it in nearly ever way. It's been a long ride to get here, but the wait has been worth it.

MechaNika Review

What do you do when you're 7 years old, your family pays little attention to you, and nearly everyone you know annoys you? Well, in Nika's case, you make a plan to destroy the world.

Bendy and the Ink Machine Review

Too dull for adults, too thematically mature for kids, Bendy should be ignored by just about everyone. It's a horror game that will entertain almost no one, unless you really like its sepia-toned world of cartoon scares.

Noir Chronicles: City of Crime Review

While the game certainly functions as intended, with repetitive puzzles, lower quality production and a few other issues, you start to wonder whether Artifex Mundi is starting to tire of their own formula.

Battlefield V Review

After Star Wars Battlefront II launched to a ton of controversy, it seemed EA had screwed up an otherwise excellent game from the multiplayer maestros at DICE. Consider Battlefield V more forgivable but still showing some issues.

World of Final Fantasy Maxima Review

This is a game that manages to be everything it should have been to fans while also being so accessible and unique that it could stand alone as someone’s first introduction to the series.

HITMAN 2 Review

Despite being a part of a popular genre, the Hitman franchise has enjoyed exclusive status as the only series that really plays the way it does. So you can only really compare it to itself, and Hitman 2 is the best in 18 years.

Construction Simulator 2 Review

Construction Simulator 2 balances realism and accessibility, giving a fascinating insight into building processes and a deeper appreciation of specialist construction machinery.

Dakar 18 Review

A brave attempt to pay homage to the world's greatest endurance rally. Promising the most authentic Dakar experience, the title does manage some of the high ambitions but too often falls short in the execution and realization.

The Shapeshifting Detective Review

Have you ever watched a murder mystery show and thought that you could do a better job than the detectives? The Shapeshifting Detective is an FMV game that allows you to prove just how good of a sleuth you really are.

11-11 Memories Retold Review

After being neglected for most of gaming's war stories in favor of World War II, and later, modern warfare, World War I has become a favorite setting for games. Among the new wave of such games, 11-11 is one of the very best.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas Review

Games with attached toys may seem like an expensive way of playing, but Starlink: Battle for Atlas' optional digital toys mean you can experience a fun spacefarer without all the clutter of toys-to-life games.

Call of Cthulhu Review

Call of Cthulhu is not just Lovecraftian. It is Lovecraft, bringing the author's world to video games in a way no one has done before. But it's lacking in many other areas, so you'll really need to be a fan to enjoy this one.

GRIP Review

The game is far from perfect, but it's certainly got plenty of zing for its zoom, which is probably something someone from the 90's would say, and that's exactly how GRIP feels, for better or worse.

Nickelodeon: Kart Racers Review

Both kart racing and Nickelodeon are famously family-friendly, so to merge the two should be a simple task resulting in plenty of fun for all ages, right? Somehow, Nickelodeon Kart Racers fails to provide that.

SOULCALIBUR VI Review

Anyone who’s out looking for a wonderful fighting game to dip their toes into the genre and have fun without the stress and technical skill that comes with some fighters, Soulcalibur VI is right up your alley.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Review

Red Dead Redemption 2's vast, detailed and stunningly beautiful world sits as a perfect backdrop for a compelling story that will pull you in and refuses to let go until its end.

Home Sweet Home Review

Home Sweet Home is the latest in a long line of defenseless horror games and it does well to carry that torch when it's working as intended. Unfortunately, a few bugs drag the game down and make it hard to recommend.

LEGO DC Super-Villains Review

LEGO games have now become incredibly familiar for those who have played a good number of them. The latest title to come from TT Games does very little to change that so expect more of the same in the world of DC.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Review

Black Ops spawned multiple sequels and gained millions of the most die-hard fans Call of Duty had ever seen. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is a love letter to the series and to those fans.

My Memory of Us Review

My Memory of Us is a good game measured by its puzzles, but it's a great one when you look at its story. What seems to be a story of evil robots is in fact a crucial historical allegory worth playing with your kids and family.

Revenant Dogma Review

In a world where two species coexisted happily until one received divine power, you play as a human named Caine. Along with your friends, you must fight enemies and search for relics in order to restore the peace.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 Review

Last year's NBA Playgrounds gave basketball fans a wacky arcade NBA Jam-style experience on the court. This sequel, now coming under the 2K banner, is a noticeable improvement in many ways.

Fishing Sim World Review

Whilst angling might not be the most appealing of sports for everyone, Fishing Sim World brings a surprisingly enjoyable sim for fans of the real-life sport capturing the essence of course fishing in a relaxing virtual world.

Life is Strange 2 - Episode 1: Roads Review

Life is Strange 2 - Episode 1: Roads is a bit of a slow burner, but it teases just enough to lead us to believe things will get far more energetic in the episodes to come.

Anodyne Review

Anodyne uses certain elements from early 2D Legend of Zelda titles while managing to put its own spin on them, which ends up resulting in a unique adventure that should not be missed by fans of the genre.

WWE 2K19 Review

Far from a superstar, WWE 2K19 does just enough to satisfy some annual players, but for those wondering if this is the year they should get back in the ring, they would be best to stay in the locker room for another year.

Amnesia: Collection Review

From the team behind SOMA, The Amnesia series has finally come to Xbox. If you're a horror fan who missed it until now, consider it a must-play. The Dark Descent is an especially memorable entry in the genre.

Razed Review

What you’ll find is a competent platformer with great presentation and enough challenge to keep dedicated players sticking around for more. Sometimes that’s all you need.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Review

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is an ambitious game that takes a huge leap in the right direction for the series by building on the solid foundations laid by last year's Origins. It excitingly goes beyond a reskin of 2017's game.

Think of the Children Review

In Think of the Children, it's impossible not to think of the children. Keeping this ragtag bunch of hooligans alive is the bane of your existence. They will test you. They will break you.

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.
