9 / 10.0 - Overwatch
Jun 2, 2016

With a focus on exquisite gameplay, Overwatch has asserted itself as the new standard not only in team-based shooters, but esports as a whole.

8.5 / 10.0 - Doom
May 23, 2016

Doom was crafted by a team that clearly loves the series, delivering chainsaws, explosions, and demon-slaying heavy metal all sealed with a kiss.

7.5 / 10.0 - Battleborn
May 12, 2016

Battleborn is like a one-man band—there's a whole lot going on, but the final product suffers due to spread resources. While lack of maps and missions may be resolved with DLC, the launch product comes off a bit shallow.

9 / 10.0 - The Banner Saga 2
Apr 27, 2016

While many reviewers will point to The Banner Saga 2's breathtaking art, or mention the sophisticated elevation of a turn-based strategy/RPG, the game's largest success is that it makes you feel like a true leader.

7.5 / 10.0 - Quantum Break
Apr 1, 2016

Quantum Break is a intriguing science-fiction tale told across two media platforms. While the action and exploration in the video game portions shine, the live-action episodes create a disconnect that is hard to recover from.

7 / 10.0 - TrackMania Turbo
Mar 23, 2016

For me, TrackMania Turbo just didn't earn the checkered flag. If you love time-trials, however, this is the racing game you've been waiting for.

Feb 22, 2016

Far Cry Primal really wants you to know that there are tons of things you can do in its prehistoric, open world. Unfortunately, you may not want to do any of them.

7 / 10.0 - Not a Hero
Feb 2, 2016

The explosion-happy, pixel-art world of Not a Hero can be fun for short bursts. However, its inability to take anything seriously—paired with an intense objective system—leaves it somewhere in the middle.

2.5 / 10.0 - Bombshell
Jan 29, 2016

Playing Bombshell is like a horrible online date. They had a great profile and pictures, but as soon as you sit down with them, you realize that there's nothing beneath the surface except crazy.

7.5 / 10.0 - Oxenfree
Jan 15, 2016

Like a good roller coaster, Oxenfree starts with nervous laughter, escalating to an event that leaves the character white-knuckled and wishing they had stayed home.
