There must be a reason we keep buying the same story over and over again, right? While the game certainly has its technical flaws, there's no denying that fans of the franchise will find a lot of love and attention paid to the classic series. It may not add anything truly new to the DBZ saga, but Kakarot is an interesting diversion sure to spawn several sequels or spin-offs.

9 / 10.0 - Devil May Cry 5
Mar 12, 2019

Devil May Cry 5 keeps what made the franchise so popular while refining its systems to near-perfection. With some of the most impressive animation and combat out there right now and the addition of Bloody Palace arriving in a free update this April, Devil May Cry 5 is the definitive DMC experience and should be played by everyone looking for incredibly satisfying & stylish combat!

8 / 10.0 - SoulCalibur VI
Oct 23, 2018

To quote the announcer from SC3, Soul Calibur VI is “seriously wounded, but the soul still burns”.

While it can certainly be considered the definitive Attack on Titan game at present, some peculiar design choices and the repetitive nature of the missions hinder it from achieving its full potential.

Hacker's Memory mostly builds upon its capable predecessor, but despite an interesting cast, some tedious content holds it back from true greatness.

7 / 10.0 - Tekken 7
Jun 13, 2017

Tekken 7 is a typically strong entry in the franchise, but it doesn't unseat reigning champion Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

While we cannot speak for those who played the original Malicious, this remaster will most likely alienate newcomers.

4 / 10.0 - Dungeon Punks
Sep 6, 2016

What few good points Dungeon Punks has are ultimately overshadowed by some atrocious design choices. Golden Axe was a bit before my time, but if this is what that game was like, then it does not seem like something we need to resurrect.

6.5 / 10.0 - Heavy Rain
Mar 10, 2016

Heavy Rain Remastered doesn't go far enough in reworking its source material. It's still the definitive version of Quantic's murder mystery, but it still carries the flaws of its forefather.

The switch to three dimensions hobbles rather than helps Trine 3. In the wake of the first two excellent entries in the series, it can only be considered a disappointment.

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, despite its flaws, is definitely worth getting for both old fans and new. The new characters, the updated combat, and Legendary Dark Knight Mode definitely add a new dimension for veteran players, while the game as a whole serves as a decent entry point for new fans, especially at its lowered price.

Xenoverse blurs the line between video game and anime. Despite a few issues, there's tons of replay value here, and fans can finally fulfill their dream of putting themselves in Dragon Ball.
