Although not quite the return to greatness that many fans were hoping for, this reboot of the Modern Warfare series manages to hold its own against the glut of online shooters currently available and offers enough tweaks and revisions to the core gameplay to justify dipping into yet another annual instalment.
Medievil's biggest downfall is its rigid adherence to its source material, anachronistic gameplay elements and camera controls included. As much as I wanted to enjoy my time within the charming limits of Gallowmere, all too often I'd find my enthusiasm dampened due to the imprecise combat and clunky controls.
Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is a fun little alternative to all the grimdark and serious team shooters on the market, although the PVE components pale in comparison to the real meat of the game, the online multiplayer.
Code Vein surprised me with how quickly it sucked me in and refused to let go. The game is probably a bit more accessible to newcomers with its streamlined levelling system and slightly lower difficulty when compared to the Souls games, but that doesn't mean that it's an overall easier game, although you never really feel as stuck in terms of progression as you could in the aforementioned games due to the versatility of the Blood Code and Gift systems offering up multiple ways to approach a situation.
For everything that The Surge 2 gets right, it unfortunately falls short in so many other areas. One major thing that I noticed when playing, and perhaps the most important factor at the end of the day, was that I simply wasn't enjoying my time with the game.
Although Question still have a couple of bugs to iron out, The Blackout Club ultimately makes for a fun and engaging, if slightly clunky, experience. An ambitious entry into the horror genre, the game's distinct lack of focus on attacking makes for an incredibly tense experience as your team scrambles to compensate for their relative weakness compared to the antagonistic forces trying to hunt you down.
Although the gameplay and design elements are starting to really show their age, Borderlands 2 is still a pretty fun game and well worth exploring in VR. The absence of multiplayer or DLC stings a bit and AIM support would have been more than welcome, but for what it presents itself as, Borderlands 2 VR is generally a solid experience.
Over the last month, enough content has been added to Battlefield V where it doesn't feel like you're picking up a glorified Beta, and the multiplayer modes on offer are as solid as ever, with Grand Operations standing out as the pick of the bunch.
