Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 feels a lot like opening a time capsule. It has so much in common with games from a decade ago that it might have been released back then. Fun moments are there to be found if you don't mind fighting a camera, frame-rate stutter and sifting through menus and load screens as you fight wave after wave of hard-hitting health sponges.

7 / 10.0 - Conan Unconquered
Jun 19, 2019

Conan Unconquered presents some cool ideas but doesn't provide enough weight or substance to keep you coming back for more punishment.

Warhammer Chaosbane looks every bit like a hack and slash contender but misses too many of the nuances that make other games in the genre fun and addictive.

8.5 / 10.0 - Mortal Kombat 11
Apr 22, 2019

Mortal Kombat 11's fighting, story, graphics and mechanics should have the game piercing the stratosphere, but the persistent online direction the progression systems have taken feels like something belonging to a free-to-play game.

8.5 / 10.0 - Anno 1800
Apr 14, 2019

Anno might have gone backwards in time, but don't let that fool you. This is a step forward in terms of management and keeping players thinking and responding to multiple issues all at once. Settlements look vibrant and alive, with the music helping you while away the hours (until the narrator reminds you it might be time for a break)

The Division 2 is a product of years of love, labour and listening, iterating and reiterating on what worked in the previous game, and adding and changing based on developer and community feedback. Everything feels polished and thought out, making you come back for some more.

9 / 10.0 - Devil May Cry 5
Mar 12, 2019

Devil May Cry 5 feels like playing your favourite PS2 hack and slash, but with amazing current gen graphics. Get ready for a rollercoaster ride of style as you pummel, slash and blast your way through all the devils.
