6.5 / 10.0 - Evil West
Nov 21, 2022

Evil West slowly falls to pieces in its 13-hour campaign due to its weak story, horrid writing and shoddy visuals. The only thing left standing is the combat and even that gets repetitive and shallow after a while.

Some ideas might not work and there are some obvious visual issues to overcome but there’s never been a grander, more exciting Pokemon adventure.

God of War Ragnarok is almost perfect in every aspect but sadly its pacing is inconsistent. Often its story gets thrown to the side in favour of hours of exploration and its last act is horribly rushed. However, it is incredible in every other aspect.

9 / 10.0 - Bayonetta 3
Oct 25, 2022

Bayonetta 3 has managed to take the series’ greatest aspects and evolve them in new and exciting ways. It is undoubtedly the best entry to date and a damn good time.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope evolves in many ways. It breaks out of its XCOM box by delivering addictive combat, fun exploration and a magical story.

8 / 10.0 - Splatoon 3
Sep 7, 2022

Splatoon 3 is Nintendo’s safest sequel. There’s nothing much new here on offer but the added weapons, modes, abilities and customization might be enough to make this your next buy. Just don’t expect anything to feel any different.

As expected, The Last of Us Part I is a full remake of the original game and doesn’t bring anything drastically new to the table. It is absolutely gorgeous to look at and showcases the power of the PS5 which feeds into the game's superb narrative.

7.5 / 10.0 - Saints Row
Aug 22, 2022

Saints Row is an incredibly fun game. The bugs often get in the way but underneath there’s an enjoyable sandbox experience here where you can truly be your own boss.

8 / 10.0 - Ghostwire: Tokyo
Mar 21, 2022

Tango Gameworks crafted an exceptional horror action game in Ghostwire: Tokyo with some incredible combat and thrillingly dark story even if the world is less than impressive at times.

9 / 10.0 - Gran Turismo 7
Mar 2, 2022

Gran Turismo 7 celebrates car culture in the best way with its superb racing, a large selection of cars and fantastic emphasis on car manufacturers.

Horizon Forbidden West is an exceptional game. It expands on Zero Dawn in every possible way while also delivering some of the best interactions I have ever seen in an open-world game. Its world is breathtaking, the people are memorable and the gameplay is industry-defining.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is the most ambitious Pokemon game to date and while it may be flawed, it offers a fun and exciting adventure that sets the bar for the future of the series.

Rainbow Six Extraction makes for a great co-op shooter. It can only get better from here as Ubisoft releases timed events and cosmetics to kit your Operators out with. The various difficulties will help carry this game for quite some time now as they all offer an unforgiving yet enjoyable experience. It does start to feel samey after a while but the squad gameplay helps keep things exciting.

9 / 10.0 - Forza Horizon 5
Nov 4, 2021

Forza Horizon 5 is a familiar playground. If you have played any of the past games you’ll feel right at home here. The general gameplay doesn’t do much to set itself apart from other Horizon games but I don’t think it needs to. The recipe works and right now, there’s really no other game out there that can compete with this. It is the best racer on the market and with no one coming for that crown, Playground Games don’t need to do anything to change that.

Mario Golf Super Rush is fun and even better with friends. It makes use of the Switch to provide motion controls that feel great. If I had to complain I would just say that the game is a bit shallow on content. With a handful of courses and 16 characters, I just wished there was more. The courses can get tiresome after a while and some characters don’t offer the same excitement as others. However, if you’re looking for a fun golf game to play solo or with friends, this is it.

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart doesn't try and reinvent the wheel but that does not make it a bad game. While somewhat short, it is one of the most visually captivating, action-packed games around and a no-brainer for PS5 owners.

Resident Evil Village is a phenomenal game. It manages to reinvent itself in some new creative ways while still delivering one of the most explosive and surprising experiences in the series.

9 / 10.0 - Returnal
Apr 29, 2021

Returnal went from a tough horror game to a brilliant arcade roguelike bullet-hell shooter. Very few games can evolve this way. Returnal is roguelike at its finest and one of the best reasons to own a PS5.

7 / 10.0 - The Medium
Jan 27, 2021

The Medium is a good game that lasts just around 10 hours. After completing it I so wanted it to be more than it is. Its story and uncomfortable themes its touches on does a great job carrying the repetitive gameplay to the end. I so wanted it to be more. I wanted more challenging puzzles and gameplay elements to expand the “dual reality” mechanics. However, it never happened. I hope The Bloober Team use this as a start to something new. The game’s general premise is an interesting one and can really be expanded on. Unfortunately, it gives me Order 1886 vibes – Just playing it too safe.

I hope everyone gets a chance to play Immortals: Fenyx Rising because there is a lot of fun to be had here. I found its world more interesting than Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla to the point where I actually wanted to go places and solve every single puzzle. Its combat is addictive and its character build system means you can approach it from so many ways. All this combines to deliver a fantastic adventure worth your time. Don’t let this game pass you by.
