Planet Zoo is a complex, deep simulation game with too much to give, if you can get past the minimalist tutorials.
Nintendo has made fitness fun again with Ring Fit Adventure, with a package that's as easy to use as it is a great workout.
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening manages to feel new, but still maintain the essence of the amazing original. This is peak old-school Zelda, and it's never looked better.
Super Mario Maker 2 is an almost perfect package, putting equal emphasis on discovery, creation, story mode, and outright brilliant gameplay.
The Division 2 is a seriously accomplished looter shooter, with a gameplay loop that keeps on giving, and an endgame that will keep you playing for months (or years) to come.
Anthem is ultimately severely flawed, and very unfinished. There's half a good game in there, but it doesn't do enough to diminish the overall feeling of emptiness and repetition.
One of the best Wii U games gets a wonderful Switch remaster that brings to life its multiplayer mayhem better than ever before.
Pokemon Let's Go is a superb surprise, a fully-fledged Pokemon RPG with interactivity that brings the series to life in a way that's never been done before.
The quirks of what seem to be a last-minute rush out the door development strategy don't detract from the fact that each Hitman 2 level is wonderfully crafted and full of potential for inventiveness… and silliness.
