It’s not always a perfect combination. A few of the latter puzzles feel needlessly complicated, requiring you to place the objects at pixel-perfect angles to trigger the next area. But that doesn’t take away from how remarkable the game is. Like Portal before it, Maquette redefines what puzzle games are capable of, and I don’t think I’ll be forgetting about these characters any time soon.
Like all great racing games, Pacer is about repetition and mastery. The more you play, the better you'll become at speeding through all the sharp turns and wild loops. It's not as polished as the Wipeout games were, but it's still a pretty good deal if you don't care much about multiplayer.
Madden NFL 21 is the clearest example yet of how unwieldy the series has become, so your en-joyment will vary depending on which modes best suit your play style. For me, that comes from seeing my virtual 49ers hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season, so anything else on top of that is just a bonus.
Hyper Scape has promise, but it's just so infuriating to play due to poor aiming controls. Some don't seem to have a problem with it, as I see other PS4 players racking up kills all the time. Still, it's better to wait and play something else until this gets fixed.
The biggest concern I had going into The Division was its viability as a single-player game. Thankfully, the developers proved me wrong. In spite of my emotionless hero, Ubisoft Massive's dystopian version of New York City is absolutely gripping. While I did come close to burning out (that happens when you play any game six or more hours a day for more than a week), I'm still excited to jump back in and spend more time with the multiplayer modes, as well as dive deeper into the Dark Zone.
I wish I liked Knights of Pen and Paper 2 a lot more than I did. It has a lot of charm and heart — I can see it in the gorgeous pixel art and in all the neat jokes and references built into Paperos. But it just isn't very fun to play. If you happen to be in that cross-section of being both a tabletop player and an RPG fanatic, it might be worth checking out. For everyone else, however, your time is better spent elsewhere.
