8.5 / 10.0 - DOOM Eternal
Mar 21, 2020

A great, if disjointed, continuation of the demon killing franchise. Visually stunning, tight controls and satisfying combat make for an exciting and enjoyable experience.

A set of interesting RPGs set in a unique, fascinating world. Imagery that will stay with you long after you stop playing. Tried and tested combat is a shame but the interesting crafting is worth a look.

8 / 10.0 - Darksiders Genesis
Dec 20, 2019

Taking the series in an entirely new direction, Darksiders Genesis manages to stay true to the prior games whilst delivering in a totally different genre. A fun game let down by grindy character progression.

8 / 10.0 - Shenmue III
Dec 8, 2019

A direct continuation of a classic series that acts like it's still the early 2000s, for better or worse! For returning fans this is precisely what you wanted. It's possible for newcomers to enjoy but you should probably play the originals first.

A somewhat disappointing expansion for a fantastic strategy game. It adds enough strategic options and variety to combat that If you are already invested in BattleTech then you'll get a lot of enjoyment from what's in here.

8.5 / 10.0 - AI War 2
Nov 1, 2019

A unique and interesting take on the RTS, adding a grand scale feel to proceedings whilst managing to not feel overwhelming. Seeing hundreds of units scurrying around never gets old. Heartily recommend to strategy fans.

A fun if wildly unpolished title that deviates from the series established identity. Some solid stealth mechanics and great feeling gunplay offset the often broken feeling the rest of the game suffers from.

8.5 / 10.0 - Destiny 2: Shadowkeep
Oct 18, 2019

The most compelling plot and potential twist the series has had to date with fun missions and a return to perhaps the most iconic location in the series' history. The moon is definitely haunted but it's a lot of fun hunting those ghosts!

8.5 / 10.0 - Borderlands 3
Sep 26, 2019

A strong return for the series with enough changes to make combat feel fresh and exciting, some great new characters and an awesome soundtrack. A fun time from start to finish.

A difficult, interesting journey through deep space that constantly has you making interesting decisions. The complexity isn't always a good thing but there is a ton of replay value here.
