BlazBlue Central Fiction Special Edition is worth considering. It might not be as high profile an entry compared to the competition, but there's a lot to love thanks to its detailed story, a host of colourful characters, and stellar production values.

5 / 10 - Anthem
Feb 19, 2019

That said, great combat and traversal alone don't do enough to warrant playing Anthem right now. Poorly thought out progression, grating characters, and inconsistent performance make EA's answer to Destiny and The Division one to skip until after a major update or two hits.

As it stands, Far Cry New Dawn feels like it's playing it too safe in areas like its weaponry, while taking some interesting risks with its progression system that don't entirely pay off.

9 / 10 - Metro Exodus
Feb 13, 2019

Metro Exodus is a gorgeous post-apocalyptic spectacle set in a dangerous yet intriguing world. Barring its technical omissions on console, there's no reason to miss out on one of the more entertaining shooters in recent memory.

6 / 10 - Apex Legends
Feb 12, 2019

All in all, Apex Legends has some interesting innovations like the Ping System while its weapons are fun to use. However, its lacklustre characters and dull traversal prevent it from being a must play title in the genre.

9 / 10 - Wargroove
Feb 1, 2019

It might lack the quirkiness of Nintendo's own Advance Wars series or the flair of Fire Emblem, but it ends up being one of the more polished strategy games available on the system.

If a strong narrative is crucial to your action role-playing game experience, look elsewhere. However, if you can stomach Kingdom Hearts 3's poor story-telling, it's a slick, fantastic adventure featuring diverse worlds and stellar combat.

10 / 10 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 22, 2019

It's this combination of exploration, puzzle solving, and action that makes Resident Evil 2 a treat to play. All of these distinct gameplay elements come together in a natural, organic fashion that works well.

If you're looking for something out of the ordinary and have immense patience for an inconsistent checkpoint system, it's well worth a look in.

All in all, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is a fantastic role-playing game with a varied cast, great story, and enjoyable combat. If you're a veteran of the original release or a newcomer, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is an adventure worth checking out.

Sleeps is worth it only if you've finished the main game and want more Spider-Man PS4 to play. Although its writing is solid and dialogues entertaining, the uninspired Screwball challenges and padding between main missions takes away from what should have been a solid add-on to one of the best games of the year.

9 / 10 - Ashen
Dec 22, 2018

Ashen's subtle additions to its obvious inspirations make it greater than the sum of its parts. If you're a fan of Dark Souls or found it and many games inspired by it too daunting, Ashen is well worth checking out.

Despite our issues regarding player progression, Earth Defense Force 5 largely delivers on the promise of over-the-top bug shooting action. It may not have the same depth as many other titles, but there are more than enough moments of big stupid fun across its 60 hour campaign to make you want to give it a go.

o yes, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch has arrived at an interesting time in the console's lifecycle. With a wealth of content and polished gameplay it's bound to make more than a few Nintendo Switch owners dust off their consoles to give it a go.

8 / 10 - Just Cause 4
Dec 3, 2018

In spite of trotting out a premise that's been done to death, Just Cause 4 remains fresh thanks to its creative gameplay features and varied missions. With explosions aplenty and stunning visuals, there's little amiss with this over the top entry in the series

So should you bother with Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight? Well, if you've played Persona 3 and Persona 5 and are aching for more Persona outside of the anime and Nintendo 3DS spin-offs, they're worth the purchase for the music selection alone.

9 / 10 - Darksiders III
Nov 26, 2018

All in all, Darksiders 3 is a stunning return to a franchise that we'd love to see more of. The stellar game world, intriguing story, and slick gameplay make it one worth checking out even if you're not a fan of the series. It's a surprise Darksiders 3 exists. And a welcome one at that.

Nov 23, 2018

All in all, Hitman 2 refines everything you know and love from 2016's Hitman. Some minor annoyances exist, but there's little else that comes in the way to make this worth checking out for both longtime fans and newcomers alike.

5 / 10 - Fallout 76
Nov 16, 2018

Hopefully, Bethesda reboots Fallout 76 like it did with The Elder Scrolls Online. Right now though, the game is hard to recommend to anyone but the most faithful of Fallout fans.
