10 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 23, 2019

The traditions of survival horror have been modernised, resulting in something that's all-too-familiar yet always manages to keep you on your toes.

5 / 10.0 - Darksiders III
Nov 26, 2018

At the end of the day, Darksiders 3 is four years too late and four years behind current game design.

8 / 10.0 - Just Dance 2019
Nov 18, 2018

That said, I mightn’t know the songs I’m dancing to, but Ubisoft’s done a wonderful job in picking upbeat, fun songs to dance to regardless. Like last year’s offering, Just Dance 2019 is an inoffensive, exercise conducive title fun alone or in pairs. If you want to boogie, consider it.

11-11 is a unique (and relatively inexpensive) title that’s worth picking up.

Unscored - Fallout 76
Nov 15, 2018

So far, Fallout 76 seems like a half-baked, early access entry, equal parts buggy as ugly

Those who’ve played Nintendo’s original Pokémon game(s) will find Let’s Go very familiar, from maps, to the original 151 Kanto Pokémon and even story beats.

7.5 / 10.0 - Hitman 2
Nov 10, 2018

Otherwise, let’s put this one to bed: those who reveled in IO’s last Hitman title will delight in a return to Hitman 2 and those who gave the soft reboot a miss will find a pleasant surprise in this title. It’s hard to go wrong with Hitman 2.

As frustrating as the experience can be, there's a lot of enjoyment — and potential — to actually be had..

7 / 10.0 - Super Mario Party
Oct 3, 2018

Super Mario Party has far more mini-games – and ones of higher quality, too – but it's too time-consuming and tedious to get into them. Couple that with Nintendo's (usual) aggressive hand-holding and the party fizzled out fast.

9 / 10.0 - Forza Horizon 4
Sep 25, 2018

Forza Horizon 4 is delight to play, packed with incredible visuals, a colourful narrative, myriad customisation options, a star-studded soundtrack and a tremendous sense of style. It will easily keep any gamer engaged.

6.5 / 10.0 - STONE
Sep 21, 2018

All of Stone's systems work to create a quirky little game with a bunch of things going for it and almost as many things that can detract from it.

7.5 / 10.0 - Transference
Sep 17, 2018

It's not a normal movie in that the interactivity of a video game provides a personal connection to what's going on. It's not simply a video game because it plays with standard conventions, and — similar to standouts like Alan Wake — manages to leave you with more questions than answers. I might not need to play it again, but I sure as hell want to start discussing it.

8 / 10.0 - NHL 19
Sep 13, 2018

There is a lot of difference between 18 and 19 — an improvement on the relative holding pattern that the franchise went into last year — but when you boil it right down, 5v5 hockey remains largely the same.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is more of the same Tomb Raider experience we've known since 2013, and that's precisely why you should be making the trek to Paititi.

Spider-Man is a heroic masterpiece, and one certainly worth playing.

7.5 / 10.0 - Strange Brigade
Aug 28, 2018

Despite a largely forgettable story, Strange Brigade has a lot of charm because of its campy nature and likable, chatty characters. While best in groups, this will also suit patient types who've got a good shot and lots of time to kill.

Unscored - We Happy Few
Aug 9, 2018

I can't help but think that early access has potentially soured the experience for those who were as excited for this game years and years ago as I was. If you're in that group, I implore you to give the game another try — it's certainly worth reconsidering.
