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.

This remaster gives Katamari Damacy the high-definition graphics and keyboard support that you'd expect in a modern PC game, but that's all. Considering the game's excellence, that's just fine.

Fans of Capcom's classic, side-scrolling brawling games will enjoy these seven action-packed beat 'em ups. Unfortunately, the bundle lacks some high-profile releases, as well as the in-depth design docs found in most retro compilations.

PlayGround Games takes Forza Horizon 3's excellent foundation and builds upon it a new game that exceeds its predecessor in nearly every way. With Forza Horizon 4, Microsoft once again has a genre-defining racing game that drifts close to perfection.

With Yakuza 0, Sega gives its long-running gangster story the origin it deserves. Featuring brutal combat, hard-boiled drama, and a wacky sense of humor, Yakuza 0 is a beat 'em up classic.

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.
