8 / 10.0 - Darkwood
May 14, 2019

Despite a seemingly unnecessary level of challenge, Darkwood is genuinely one of the scariest games out there, featuring some of the best sound design in the survival horror genre.

6 / 10.0 - Close to the Sun
May 2, 2019

Close to the Sun is a masterclass in atmosphere and storytelling, sadly let down by poorly-directed chase scenes that quickly grow repetitive and tedious.

Unscored - Fade to Silence
Apr 30, 2019

If you’re looking for an adventure with a bit of an extra challenge and you don’t mind putting in the work to figure out how to do everything, or perhaps just want a bit of a harsh survival game with a lot of depth and lore, then Fade to Silence will tick a lot of boxes. It comes with a few issues, like being unable to equip a torch for some reason, or story missions forcing you to stay outside when you really need to find shelter from a blizzard, but there’s just something quite playable about this one. Though many might find it a bit too overwhelming. I sure did.

5 / 10.0 - The Padre
Apr 24, 2019

The Padre is a great idea, let down by a lack of proper direction and some frustratingly obtuse puzzle design.

We Happy Few's first DLC shows a glimpse of what the main game should have been. They Came From Below is full of heart and good humour, though a little heavy on the combat.

While not the definitive version, Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is no slouch on the Nintendo Switch. Whether played in graphics or performance mode, docked or handheld, it's still an outstanding version of an already outstanding game.

Pebberly Island brings with it a bit of a different experience from its main game, and also comes with a fresh challenge that will entertain returning players.

8 / 10.0 - Generation Zero
Mar 25, 2019

Generation Zero combines the open world of an RPG with the shooting and looting of a battle royale, to create a rather special, 80s vision of post-apocalyptic sci-fi, where every fight feels like a battle for survival.

Despite some issues with visuals and AI, MX vs ATV All Out Anniversary Edition is somehow still a lot of fun to play and brings back memories of Motocross Madness.

8.5 / 10.0 - Dead or Alive 6
Mar 1, 2019

While it does have some issues, the core gameplay of Dead or Alive 6 is fluid and brilliantly fun. It's certainly the best in the series so far.

8 / 10.0 - Dirt Rally 2.0
Feb 27, 2019

If it's realism you're after, DiRT Rally 2.0 is up there with the best rally sims out there. It's just let down a bit by some poor Rallycross AI and intrusive use of its online features, even in single player modes.

While When Ski Lifts Go Wrong can be laugh-out-loud funny, it also provides a huge number of challenging puzzles as you try (and often fail) to build reliable structures on unforgiving mountainsides.

7.5 / 10.0 - Pikuniku
Jan 29, 2019

Pikuniku is quirky, funny and more than a little bit mad, all adding up to a short-but-sweet, colourful platform adventure.

8 / 10.0 - BELOW
Dec 30, 2018

Despite its frustrating refusal to teach you even the basics, Below's sense of discovery is as good as anything already out there, and its gameplay is as deep as its name suggests.

8 / 10.0 - Just Cause 4
Dec 3, 2018

With its extreme weather scenarios and the familiar, over-the-top usage of Rico's grapple gun, wingsuit and parachute, Just Cause 4 is the most ridiculous and best it has ever been.

7 / 10.0 - Steel Rats
Dec 2, 2018

Mixing Sonic-style platforming with Trials-esque, inertia-driven gameplay, Steel Rats is a bold and often fun concept, but some awkward level design holds it back from matching the quality of its inspiration.

Ride 3 is a big step up from its predecessor, with excellent handling and a huge array of racing styles that elevate it toward the top of the podium.

6 / 10.0 - Road Redemption
Nov 21, 2018

Road Redemption is a fun successor to the classic Road Rash, but its inclusion of a roguelike element simply leads to far too much repetition.
