5 / 10.0 - ADR1FT
Mar 31, 2016

Adr1ft is a game in love with space. It finds seduction in the void, and inside the debris of a botched reach for the unknown. I've never before seen space above Earth portrayed by such convincing beauty in a game. Alas, it is at the service of an unbefitting journey mired by clumsy movement and contrivances more heavy-handed than the story behind the disaster.

7 / 10.0 - EA Sports UFC 2
Mar 11, 2016

EA Sports UFC 2 delivers the grandeur of MMA in a remarkable and brutal presentation. A traditional fighting game this is not, and the genuine attempts at simulating a dense sport result in clumsy combat that only on occasion captures the drama and nuance of human chess.

7 / 10.0 - Project X Zone 2
Feb 19, 2016

This strategy RPG is a clever way to let fans of the Sega, Capcom, and Bandai Namco library jump into their favorite worlds with ease since the events have little to no bearing in the canonical continuity. The cast is pure fun but is soon overwhelming, where normally standout characters can hardly get a word in on the already impenetrable narrative.

Is it possible that the fourth version of a fighting game built on a simple control scheme could still be worth visiting? Yes, and the developer's devotion to the series gives current fans and those who may get bit by the Naruto bug down the line a good reason to start the game up with friends again and again.

Xenoblade Chronicles X has a hard time providing a tale suitable for the massive world and complex systems that occupy it, but even the most fairweather RPG fans will need little convincing to pick up this Japanese addition to the open-world genre.

7 / 10.0 - Need for Speed
Nov 2, 2015

You'd be hard pressed to find an automaker willing to take an extra year to reset their car line much like Ghost Games did here with their second run on Need for Speed.  What we get is a more focused and competent racer but one seemingly unwilling to risk standing out from the crowd.

9 / 10.0 - Halo 5: Guardians
Oct 26, 2015

The continuation of a new Master Chief saga, the refinement and additions to multiplayer for casual and pros alike, plus a gorgeous presentation made possible by current generation technology—all add up to the makings of a FPS worthy of the Halo series' best iterations.

9 / 10.0 - NBA 2K16
Oct 1, 2015

Marvel at NBA 2K16's drive for excellence and all they've put into making this year's sim incredible. Year by year 2K has learned to make a more solid sports title, and now it's not just a highlight-reel player, but an accomplished All-Star video game.

6 / 10.0 - Mad Max
Sep 14, 2015

Mad Max's inescapable, monotonous looting in a derivative open world can't justify seeking the sparse instances of break-neck fun behind the wheel. Though there are moments that reach the level of Mad Max: Fury Road, they're unfortunately too few and far between.
