7.5 / 10.0 - World War Z
Apr 22, 2019

World War Z is far from being as polished as it should be, but it's made well enough and has enough content to keep you and your friends busy for some time. The gameplay is fun and entertaining, but the game does need a bit more refinement to make it shine the way it's supposed to. Overall, not a bad co-op experience.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice really shows why From Software is the current king of making brutally challenging yet rewarding games. It looks amazing, has a more focussed narrative than what we've seen before and the combat is something quite unique and different. It might not be everybody's cup of tea, but once you get used to the game's rhythm and mechanics, it becomes an absolute blast to play.

9 / 10.0 - Dirt Rally 2.0
Feb 25, 2019

DiRT Rally 2.0 is not an easy game to play, but once you get a hang of it, it will suck you in and challenge you to be better and improve all the time. The game is very well made and offers quite a bit in terms of gameplay and challenge. It is the gold standard for Rally simulation.

7.5 / 10.0 - Ride 3
Dec 4, 2018

Ride 3 is a rock solid racing game. It combines realism with outright fun in a manner that few motorbike games before it have managed. The graphics are starting to look and feel a bit dated, but the game has the right heart. All we need now is for them to make it look the part!

Starlink: Battle for Atlas is an open world space shooter that is aimed at the younger market by combining toys with gameplay in an interesting way. Actual gameplay is not groundbreaking and gets repetitive after a while, but the way the game integrates with the toys at your disposal is quite innovative and fun, provided you have enough options available.

7.5 / 10.0 - Dark Souls Remastered
Oct 22, 2018

Dark Souls Remastered finally brings the series to a Nintendo console with a very competent and solid port. It's ported from the older generation consoles, but it still looks and plays pretty well. There are a few minor control issues, but it's mainly due to not getting dedicated button mapping for the Nintendo platform. If you're a fan of the series or a newcomer, the game is still worth a look.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the final entry into the Origins Trilogy of Lara Croft with a compelling story and some of the best character seen in the series. It features some great stealth combat, excellent puzzles, and fun platforming. It is a worthy entry into the series and might be considered as the best one yet.

7 / 10.0 - The Golf Club
Sep 11, 2018

The Golf Club 2019 is a solid entry into a library of golf games. It's not the best golf game ever made, but the foundation has been laid for what might be a truly good franchise of licensed golf games.

8.5 / 10.0 - Destiny 2: Forsaken
Sep 9, 2018

Destiny 2: Forsaken rights a lot of the wrongs from the original game. It is the game that Destiny 2 should have been right from the start, and because of this, it becomes a lot easier to recommend again.

9 / 10.0 - F1 2018
Aug 28, 2018

F1 2018 is an incredibly well-made racing simulator that doesn't change up too much from its predecessor, but rather builds and improves on what is already there.

8 / 10.0 - Dead Cells
Aug 6, 2018

Dead Cells is a brutally hard game to play, not because of its combat or mechanics but rather because of the steep penalty for failure. It still feels fun and rewarding to play though, so it is worth checking it out.

7.5 / 10.0 - MXGP Pro
Jul 1, 2018

MXGP does take some time to get used to and the poorly designed UI doesn't help, but once you get going, it is a really solid Motocross experience that might be worth checking out.

7.5 / 10.0 - Destiny 2 - Warmind
May 13, 2018

Warmind brings back mechanics from Destiny 1 that players were after, but still doesn't deliver completely in terms of interesting, varied content. Still, it is more of a win than a loss for Guardians, if you are playing on PS4.

10 / 10.0 - God of War
Apr 15, 2018

It's not just Kratos' appearance and maturity that's changed, but so has the God of War formula. Everything has grown up and with it you're left with an unforgettable adventure that will stay with you long after you put the controller down.

4.5 / 10.0 - MX vs ATV All Out
Apr 2, 2018

MX vs ATV All Out is a poor representation of a sport that can be very exciting. It is poorly made and implemented, and could have been something good, had the developers put a little bit of effort into it.

8.5 / 10.0 - MLB 18: The Show
Mar 27, 2018

Baseball is not a sport that we here in South Africa know a lot about, but the MLB series does a very good job at showing us what all the fuss is about.

4 / 10.0 - ELEX

Elex is a game with so many missed opportunities. It could've been good, if only it was better executed.

The Frozen Wilds offers a lot more to the overall experience of Horizon Zero Dawn, but it's not quite the stand-alone experience that we want it to be.
