Sundered: Eldritch Edition is one of the best platformers I've played this year, it has all the great platformer elements and entertains without fail.

In terms of audio, the soundtrack is beautiful and Canadian film composer Max LL did a wonderful job.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a fantastic finale to an amazing trilogy! The game is graphically stunning and delivers a crisp and thrilling storyline that will entertain for multiple playthroughs.
