Light on puzzles, high on atmosphere.

In short, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is simply brilliant. Between its thrilling gameplay, fantastic graphics, and charming story, it's a must-have for PS5 players everywhere. There haven't been many games to justify a step into the new console generation as of yet, but this is definitely one of them.

Overall, The Magnificent Trufflepigs is an interesting character-driven story that doesn't quite meet its potential. It lacks the nuance required to be a truly great, especially when it comes to its broader plot, but there's still charm here among its performances and solid depiction of village country life.

The Longest Road on Earth is still relatively successful. Its unique and interesting gimmick allows it to reach places that other indie games have yet to travel, although it does fall into limitations with just how engaging it can be thanks to its pacing and self-inflicted restrictive nature. Nonetheless, fans of character-centric experimental works will likely want to give this a go, and it's a useful blueprint for potential future innovation, too.

This leaves Wrath of the Druids as a decent if uninspired first major DLC pack for Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Its truly brilliant moments are worth playing, and those who enjoyed the core gameplay loop of the main game will be satisfied. However, elements like resource gathering and generic side quests could certainly have been cut to make way for more divergent design, to make use of Ireland and all its history.

Terminator: Resistance Enhanced still isn't for everyone, since it's far from the smooth experience that FPS fans have come to expect even with the technical updates for its PS5 release. Nonetheless, it's a game that understands the Terminator franchise, and the heart behind its creation shines through in spite of its limitations.

Overall, MotoGP 21 is a clear step up from last year's entry into the franchise. The title makes good use of the new hardware available, all the while expanding the scope of the gameplay experience, particularly for detail-centric players. It might not be for everyone, but motorcycle racing fans will get a real kick out of MotoGP 21.

Ashwalkers is still a fascinating little narrative experience. There's an interesting and at times surprisingly uplifting world to explore, and it's worth playing through the game multiple times to see where its branching pathways lead. That said, its brevity means that there's not quite enough meat on the bones to really envelop anyone in its atmosphere, which could leave some explorers wanting more.
