A solid expansion that brings a lot of new toys to play with and mission variations to play in. The campaign is a fun exploration of a pivotal time in Mechwarrior lore. If you own Mechwarrior 5 you should own this.

8 / 10.0 - Cruis'n Blast
Sep 25, 2021

Cruis'n Blast is an excellent return for the series and genre as a whole. The lack of online multiplayer hurts but there is a lot to enjoy for solo players and those who can play locally. Fantastic visuals and track set-pieces make this an engaging, fun time.

6.5 / 10.0 - King's Bounty II
Sep 10, 2021

A flawed return for a classic series that doesn't quite nail the transition to an open-world third-person perspective. Interesting and fun combat balances out the bland exploration somewhat.

A great port of a great title that's well worth the investment on Switch, on PS4 however unless you are a Darius superfan you'd be better served with a copy of Chronicle Saviours.

A fantastic game for both fans of Monster Hunter and newcomers alike, cleverly weaves aspects of the main games into a traditional RPG setting and can stand on its own.

A competent collection of ports that does the bare minimum to bring the series to modern systems. The games themselves are still fantastic action classics but it's a shame all versions couldn't be included.

A great base to build from for the future but in its current state it's hard to recommend until Frontier gets in front of the performance issues and bugs that plague Odyssey right now.

8 / 10.0 - Habroxia 2
Feb 7, 2021

Fun retro-styled twin-stick shooter that feels satisfying to play. Wears its early Konami inspiration on its sleeve whilst taking it to new places! Easy to recommend to shmup fans!

A great collection of legitimate classics that are still fantastic fun to play. If you enjoy run and gun games and have never played the Turrican games this is the best way to experience them today.

4.5 / 10.0 - Hell Pages
Jan 28, 2021

A bland, soulless horizontal SHMUP that is extremely basic and by the numbers. Interesting boss designs don't do enough to hold the rest of the game up. In such a crowded genre there are much better options.
