Dominic Leighton's Reviews

Having written for TheSixthAxis for the past four years, in 2015 Dom became the Reviews Editor, which has led to a great deal of reviewing, and indeed, editing. He always roots for the underdog, hence why some of his favourite consoles include the Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast and Nintendo Wii U. He also had an Atari Jaguar, but even he had to draw a line somewhere.

Monster Hunter Rise is an incredible game. While it may not feel quite as ground-breaking for the series as World did, it boasts a stronger and distinctly Japanese identity, and the changes and streamlined gameplay simply focus on the franchise's true stars – the monsters. Rise is easily one of the best games for the Nintendo Switch, and one of the finest Monster Hunters ever.

PixelJunk Raiders plays like an interactive sci-fi album cover from the 70s; one full of Vangelis off-cuts that you're going to try and share with a bunch of your friends despite the fact they're more interested in Rod Stewart.

If you're a fan of on-rails shooters, Redout: Space Assault is an enjoyable, if limited, addition to the genre.

Jurassic World Aftermath sits amongst the very best examples of immersive VR adventures, but a lack of variety in gameplay, its sharp-toothed cast and the need to wait for a conclusion undoes some of Coatsink's exceptional work.

Warhammer 40,000 Battle Sisters is a thoroughly enjoyable VR adventure set in Games Workshop's iconic sci-fi universe. It's a shame that a few bugs diminish the game's impact, and the occasional lack of variety, but for anyone looking for a futuristic battlefield to blast their way across, Battle Sister is definitely worth hopping into a drop pod for.

Submerged is a wonderful, melancholic exploration game, that builds a more defined and evocative world than many AAA games do.

Perhaps not <em>quite<em> as transcendental as it is in VR, Tetris Effect: Connected remains an incredible, visionary piece of work, that you can now experience with others. With its arrival on Xbox Series X, it can be a game for a new generation.

NBA 2K21 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S is a big step forward for the franchise and easily the best version of this year's basketball franchise. There might be the feeling that features were shorn from the current gen release to give it more impact, but from the inclusivity of featuring the WNBA in MyPlayer, to the sprawling The City online hub and the stunning graphics and gameplay improvements, this will keep you and your new console happy well into 2022.

Joy, wonder and engrossing park management come together to spectacular effect in Planet Coaster: Console Edition. Frontier are masters of the park building art, and as we enter a new console generation that's never been clearer.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered is the perfect reminder of what Criterion brought to the franchise, with a blisteringly fast arcade racer that’s made all the better if you’ve got the ability to play it at 60fps. The main downside is that your Autolog wall is more likely to splashed with your solitary achievements, rather than the consistent flow of competition you experienced a decade ago.
