Guardians of the Galaxy is packed with Star-Lord and crew's humor and classic rock tunes, but this stiff point-and-click adventure game won't quite leave you hooked on a feeling.
Super Bomberman isn't the prettiest game in the long-running series, but its core multiplayer mayhem is as terrific as ever. [OpenCritic note: Jeffrey Wilson separately reviewed the PC (2.5 stars) and Switch (3.5 stars) versions. Their scores have been averaged.]
RetroMania Wrestling continues the action-filled fun established by classic, arcade wrestling titles, but features additional mechanics to please contemporary audiences. It isn't the deepest wrestling game, but that's part of its breezy, accessible charm.
Kunio and his crew of troublemakers unleash adolescent violence in this new multi-player brawler. Featuring numerous combatants, weapons, and special moves, River City Melee Mach!! may scratch the battle royale itch for people who don't fancy Fortnite or PUBG.
Team Ninja adds the new offensive- and defensive-minded Break Gauge to its trademark Triangle System. The result is a Dead or Alive title that retains its fan service and boasts additional strategies, but a few issues keep this fighting game from ranking among the genre's best titles.
Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite pits comic book characters vs. video game characters in a battle for magic space rocks. The highly satisfying action is paired with an uneventful roster and mediocre presentation, but that shouldn't stop you from exploring this fun fighting game.
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 rumbles onto PC years after its original, last-generation console release. Despite irritating infinite combos and a barren online lobby, it was worth the wait, thanks to fun fighting, included console DLC, and a wallet-friendly price.
