If you're a Digimon fan, Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory will consume your time and then some. If not, the game won't do much to get you to fall in love with the brand, but its core gameplay loop is engrossing for people with an affinity for collecting.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 doesn't captivate like its predecessor namely due to a messy learning curve and a story that doesn't quite draw you in as well. But from a JRPG standpoint, it's still a win for series fans and Nintendo Switch owners.
Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are proper send-offs for what could be the last time we see the series on a handheld. Packed with hours of content and a lot more Pokemon to catch, they are more than enough to hold you over until Pokemon Switch.
Battle Chasers: Nightwar features a deep and rewarding battle system that is the crux of the entire experience. Save-erasing crashes, a passive narrative, and balancing issues can't help Nightwar compete in a year where RPGs reign supreme.
Drifting Lands is a Shmup that leverages Action-RPG systems to give it style all its own. While customizing your ships to find that perfect balance of abilities and equipment is engrossing, a repetitive mission structure and paper-thin plot line that may
DiRT 4 is built for a very specific audience, so if you're looking for a casual arcade type experience, you're in the wrong place. But if you are open to learning the ins and outs of the dirt rally world or are a fan of it already, there's no reason why y
A New Frontier rebounds in its final episode, but it can't stop the fact that the series has delivered its weakest season to date.
Day of Infamy is one of those games that will quickly weed out players without the patience or willingness to adapt to its more methodical and strategic approach, creating a small but skilled core fan base that should stick with the game for the long run.
Perhaps if the entire season had taken place in Richmond, engrossing me entirely in how things work in the city, I might feel differently. But for now, I'm preparing myself for tons of QTE's, blood, and dramatic character deaths that I'll probably just shrug off as Telltale making sure they do their Telltale things.
When it works, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 has its moments where it completely engrosses you. But it's not long before it violently and literally shoves you out because of poor optimization, heavy frame stuttering, audio sync issues, and crashes. This game wa
The new cast of characters is what keeps A New Frontier going, which is something Telltale should be commended for as it was a much riskier proposition than continuing the story of established characters. It just seems like The Walking Dead as a franchise doesn't have many tricks beyond "we gotta do what it takes to survive," "don't trust anyone," and "something isn't right about this place."
