The Falconeer is a very competent flight combat title set in a gorgeous and mysterious world that is a joy to explore, even if it’s a bit empty.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla might not revolutionize the open world RPG genre, but its careful evolution of the mechanics outlined in Origins and Odyssey leads to the series’ best title yet.
Watch Dogs: Legion is the rare big budget AAA sequel that dares to take chances with cool new ideas instead of remixing the same old tunes with better graphics or a bigger map.
Aquanox Deep Descent suffers from poor mission variety and an underwhelming story, but its combat and ship customization systems are solid and entertaining.
Space Crew is a competent sequel to Bomber Crew, and not just a palette swap, as it introduces new elements into the mix while at the same time refining what made the first game so good.
Star Wars: Squadrons is a dream game for anyone looking for a worthy successor to the X-Wing/TIE Fighter series.
Serious Sam 4 is the heavy metal mosh pit to Doom’s beautifully choreographed ballet of death. Rough around the edges, but incredibly fun to play if you are a first person shooter fan.
The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk’s comedy might not earn it many favors, but its excellent tactical combat can make up for any shortcomings in other areas.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is still the game to beat when it comes to RPG combat, though this remaster plays things a bit too safe, considering its price tag.
