9 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 27, 2019

This remake will speak to both newcomers and veterans alike. It's an old school formula that's been spiced up for a modern generation and it works. It'll keep you on the edge of your seat and have your heart skipping a beat, but, most of all, it'll remind you just why it has such a legendary status. It's simply one of the best Resident Evil stories ever told and this remake honours that.

There are so many modes, fighters, stages, a soundtrack to die for and, finally, an adventure mode that'll last you longer than most single-player games. It's not just the ultimate Super Smash Bros. game - it's the ultimate crossover fighter.

8 / 10.0 - Mega Man 11
Nov 19, 2018

Capcom kept to the traditional strengths of the series and with that you're left with a highly addictive action-platformer that is perfect for both newcomers and veterans alike.

7 / 10.0 - Tetris Effect
Nov 8, 2018

It's not easy to improve a game that's just about perfect and Tetris Effect is proof that the formula doesn't need much tweaking. It looks and sounds incredible, but don't expect this euphoria to last you a long time. Unless you love playing for a high score via leaderboards, the effect will wear off before you know it.

5 / 10.0 - Dakar 18
Oct 8, 2018

Dakar 18 comes with all the official licenses, great track layouts and everything that you would align with the event, it's just let down by really poor vehicle handling.

Platformers have found a home on PSVR and Astro Bot Rescue Mission is going to drive that point home. Players who are after a traditional 3D platformer that is filled with secrets and impressive worlds to discover, should take the plunge and help this little Astro Bot that could.

9.5 / 10.0 - Forza Horizon 4
Sep 24, 2018

Forza Horizon 4 takes what its predecessor did and somehow improves on it. If you're after a simulation you've come to the wrong place. All you'll find here is an endless supply of arcade racing entertainment.

8.5 / 10.0 - Firewall: Zero Hour
Sep 20, 2018

Firewall: Zero Hour is the FPS game PSVR players have been waiting for. The only downside is that there is absolutely no campaign to enjoy - it's a multiplayer experience, exclusively. Play it with the aim controller and you'll find little else as entertaining in the PSVR shooter library.

5.5 / 10.0 - V-Rally 4
Sep 12, 2018

Rally games have come a long way, but it seems V-Rally is still stuck in an era where most of their audience wasn't even born yet. The level design is something to behold, pity that it bites the dust when it comes to car handling.

8.5 / 10.0 - Planet Alpha
Sep 9, 2018

Planet Alpha takes you on a trip to an alien world that oozes with atmosphere and scale. The platforming and puzzles will keep you on your toes from beginning to end in an indie game that is as beautiful as most AAA titles.

7.5 / 10.0 - WarioWare Gold
Aug 13, 2018

WarioWare Gold takes the best games since launching on the GBA and brings it to the 3DS with over 300 playable microgames. It's fun, wacky and will keep your attention throughout story mode. It's unfortunately very short and comes with a multiplayer mode that requires your friend to own the game as well. Perfect for newcomers, but veterans might want to give it a skip.

8.5 / 10.0 - Sonic Mania Plus
Jul 31, 2018

Sonic Mania is a re-imagination of what made the original 90s classics so enjoyable. It introduces new abilities, characters, levels and many other features to make this one of the freshest takes on a Sonic game in decades.

8.5 / 10.0 - 20XX
Jul 8, 2018

20XX is a Mega Man clone that understands what it takes to challenge fans of the genre and allows you to include a friend in the mix. It's challenging, precise and an enormous amount of fun if you give it the time it deserves.

6.5 / 10.0 - MotoGP 18
Jul 5, 2018

Bike games always seem to get the short end of the stick and MotoGP 18 isn't going to help that cause. It might be a build up towards a better tomorrow, but for now you'll have to deal with a finish out of the points.

3 / 10.0 - Tennis World Tour
Jun 27, 2018

The worst tennis game that has ever released on any format to date. It's unresponsive, looks amateur and is one game of tennis you should decline at all costs.

Three androids will set you on an adventure that'll have you questioning humanity, their circumstances and yourself. Its cinematic presentation is as precise as expected, but the new flowchart is going to have you come back for more to see all the various endings you can unlock. If you enjoyed Heavy Rain you are going to love this.

6 / 10.0 - Trailblazers
May 10, 2018

Taking what made Splatoon so popular and combining it with level design of F-Zero makes it sound like a dream, but it, unfortunately, misses the mark. With a bit of AI tweaking and varied weapons, this could be a much better experience. For now the splash of colour won't hold your interest.

Cartman returns once more to inject some crude one-liners into a South Park turn-based RPG game that'll have you grinning from ear-to-ear from beginning to end. If you can deal with all the loading times you have a very loud and proud fart indeed.

Fans who love the show now have a VR game that brings them as close to the action as they've ever been. Becoming Rick's slave to yell at has never been so much fun.

Devil May Cry was once the pinnacle of action games, but 2001 is 17 years ago. Back then we had no smartphones, no Twitter, no Youtube, no Facebook and barely had online gaming. In gaming years it's ancient and should perhaps remain in the past. We have a new demon slayer and her name is Bayonetta.
