'Spider-Man: Turf Wars' is a middle of the road expansion of one of the year's best games. Lacking in anything new or exciting to draw players back in, 'Turf Wars' skips the opportunity to either resolve plot points or do right by its characters.

Even with the ghostly pale of an unfinished game hovering over it, the second episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season is still among Telltale's finest work. Here's hoping they get a chance to release the remaining two episodes.

The first episode of Life is Strange 2 is impressive in both the small changes it makes to the formula of the original game, and the influences it allows from our current tumultuous news cycle. Though it may not bowl you over, it is certainly an excellent start to this new episodic series.

If you've enjoyed the stories of Telltale's games up until now but have found yourself growing weary at the lack of evolution in gameplay, then The Walking Dead: The Final Season is just the game to bring you back into the fold.

7 / 10.0 - Road to Ballhalla
Aug 5, 2018

While Road to Ballhalla is very simple in its design, it packs limitless potential into its tiny design. With ever evolving level structure and new obstacles emerging right up until the end, Road to Ballhalla is fun little throwback to some of gaming's earliest forms.

Dark Souls Remastered is hands-down the definitive edition of one of the most influential games of the previous generation, and an absolute must-play for series late-comers who may have missed it the first time around. Vastly improved and technically superior, Dark Souls Remastered renders the original version obsolete by comparison.

3.8 / 10.0 - Zero Time Dilemma
Aug 24, 2017

Zero Time Dilemma seems to be brimming with good ideas. Unfortunately, between the increasingly insane, shark jumping, plot revelations, and the never-ending dialogue strands, someone forgot to put a video game here. When the player does get to do something aside from making decisions, the game improves markedly but since the design of the game can make even these sections few and far between, it becomes harder and harder to forgive as the run time of the game continues to tick along.

What Remains of Edith Finch evolves the walking simulator in a way that shows a new aspect of what gaming is capable of, both in terms of immersion and storytelling. This is the game.

One of the best expansions From Software has ever produced, The Ringed City is a challenging and satisfying epilogue for the Dark Souls trilogy.

7.2 / 10.0 - Pavilion
Feb 27, 2017

While Pavilion is a sight to behold and packs a great soundtrack, it's ease and simplicity may turn off the more hardcore among puzzle fans. Still, it's worth a play for it's unique look alone.

8.8 / 10.0 - Final Fantasy XV
Dec 7, 2016

Final Fantasy XV somehow transcends its many flaws in order to become a classic in its own right. Though any reviewer worth their salt would be hesitant to rate it too highly, due to its many faults, by any stretch of the gaming medium, Final Fantasy XV has clear and obvious merit, and, as such, cannot be dismissed or derided completely, even with its problems.

9.1 / 10.0 - Pokémon Sun and Moon
Nov 25, 2016

With enough new features and change-ups on franchise staples to hold a surprise for everyone, Pokemon Sun is one of the best reasons to have a 3DS, and is the kind of adventure that is perfect for serious fans of this series and newcomers alike.

While the ashen one's journey through the painted world of Ariandel does offer a very memorable finale, other sections come across a bit old hat. The journey is ultimately a satisfying one but it isn't From's best expansion by a long shot.
