7 / 10 - Darq
Aug 15, 2019

Darq is an intelligent puzzle game with a delightfully dreary setting that is over far quicker than you want it to be.

Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot is an unsatisfying VR shooter that wastes the potential of piloting some of the series' most iconic enemies.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 refines its formula and cuts out many of the frustrations from the first game, delivering a more structured story and rewarding pacing that lets you see your hard work gradually blossom rather than be swept away. It's an engrossing sequel that is difficult to pull away from, and now far more welcoming to start too.

9 / 10.0 - F1 2019
Jul 3, 2019

F1 2019 is another exceptional racing game that caters to all spectrums of fans, giving you many modes, exhibition events and an exciting career mode to get familiar with its gorgeous tracks. It's simply one of the best simulation racers out there, again.

9 / 10 - Outer Wilds
Jun 9, 2019

Outer Wilds is a poignant space explorer with an emotionally engrossing tale set across a condensed but wildly surprising solar system.

7 / 10 - Blood & Truth
May 30, 2019

Blood and Truth is an entertaining VR shooter with smart movement and inventive motion controls, but it does face some pitfalls.

Void Bastard is as satisfying as it is stylish thanks to its inventive weaponry and engaging first-person shooting.

5 / 10.0 - Rage 2
May 21, 2019

Rage 2 tries to do so many things in such a small timeframe that it forgets to do anything original or inventive with its many unfocused components. Its combat alleviates these issues in short spurts, but it's not enough to weave a cohesive thread through this confused trip through a familiar wasteland.

6 / 10 - World War Z
May 3, 2019

World War Z is unrefined and rough around the edges, but it makes up for this with satisfying co-operative action that fills your screen with hundreds of enemies for you to kill.

6.5 / 10.0 - Days Gone
Apr 25, 2019

Days Gone has moments where it reveals its brilliance, but they're buried under a litany of uninteresting and repetitive missions and numerous technical issues.

SteamWorld Quest's accessible take on card-based combat is undermined by an uneven difficulty curve that frustrates more than it encourages.

8 / 10.0 - Islanders
Apr 9, 2019

Islanders is simple and straight-forward but still manages to make each of its city-building runs engrossing with a high-score to chase and procedurally-generated spaces to explore. It's the charming visuals and meditative soundtrack that make your brief stays worth it, enrapturing you in a relaxing aesthetic as you try to survive as long as you can.

Ethereal's frustrating technical issues are alleviated by the satisfyingly challenge of its puzzles.

The Wizards: Enhanced Edition wrestles with the limitations of PSVR and never wins, deeply undercutting its enjoyable spellcasting with inaccurate motion tracking. These issues are only made worse by uninteresting missions and repetitive combat, making the initial splendour of this spellcasting adventure fade very quickly.

7 / 10.0 - The Occupation
Mar 11, 2019

The Occupation's clever real-time investigations and immensely engrossing story are undone by its dedication to inducing tension by restricting saving, which is exasperated by uneven technical performance.

Feb 26, 2019

Trials Rising expands the engrossing and challenging gameplay from its past entries, but it also fails to address some of their issues.

9 / 10.0 - Apex Legends
Feb 13, 2019

Apex Legends is a surprisingly different interpretation of the Battle Royale formula that introduces new rules for engagement while also refining many of the issues the genre has grappled with for months. It's ingenious tagging system and clever character abilities make it a multiplayer shooter that's easy to pick up and play, but also deep enough to sink hundreds of hours into for months to come.

9 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 28, 2019

Resident Evil 2's remake highlights just how great Capcom's first sequel in the Resident Evil series ways, but does it in a way that makes it the most compelling entry in the series thus far. It's smart changes merge with the classic design expertly, while its atmosphere is rich thanks to gorgeous lighting and incredible sound design. It's a reminder of the past, but this remake would be a fine direction for the future of Resident Evil
