Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite is one of the best fighters of the year on a pure gameplay standpoint, the Story Mode may be utter guff and the visuals are incredibly mediocre but when it comes down to it, the core combat and online component are so addictive that you can sink hours into the characters and stones and still be finding new combos and set-ups.
Ultra Street Fighter 2 is a fun title which is a testament to the quality of the original title, however the extra content on offer and the horrendous Way of The Hado mode do little to justify an eighth iteration in the SF2 series and falls woefully short of it's £35 price tag.
Tekken 7 is a complete package, brilliant graphics, superb sound and top notch gameplay. It does leave a little to be desired in teaching its tight mechanics to newcomers and the story mode can drag on however, at the end of it all, you would be hard pressed to find a fighter this entertaining.
Injustice 2 is a very good fighter with a strong roster, engaging story and tons of content to keep you playing long past the credits roll. It does fumble the implementation of its biggest new mechanic - The Gear System - but even with the poor audio design and imbalance within the roster, it still manages to be a damn good time.
A near perfect experience with amazing characters, gameplay and environments dripping with atmosphere, Resident Evil 4 is an absolute blast throughout and this Remaster is only hampered by the awkward controls and the cutscenes for certain parts of the game. Resident Evil 4 reminds us why it is the king of the series and why it deserves the top spot.
King of Fighters 14 is rough around the edges and is certainly not a perfect game, but what it lacks in graphics and compelling story it more than makes up for in gameplay. Delivering some of the best fighting in the series to date with fresh takes on old mechanics, any fighting game fan would be missing out if they judged King of Fighters 14 by its graphical punch.
The first foray into the world of Telltale Games Batman is full of mystery, intrigue and a hard edged adult portrayal of the world. Its technical issues bring the experience down, however, this first entry its the ground running with an interesting story and gives a first episode that not only is gripping but also left me salivating for more.
Rise of The Tomb Raider is a very good sequel that improves a lot of the issues present in the original but doesn't completely fix them. While definitely flawed in some areas it is undeniably fun and an incredibly strong entry in the franchise.
