This is an unofficial celebration of (nearly) 20 years of Phoenix Wright, and it’s a damn good one at that, even with its failings. You can hardly go wrong with the Granddaddy of the visual novel — a quirky, comical romp into the courtroom.

Despite some design decisions that may be seen as missteps in 2019, Borderlands has aged remarkably well (and in some cases, reminds current developers that they need to reassess how they’ve tackled the looter shooter).

If you’re after a cute time rather than a genre-defining one, this’ll work just fine.

While I’d love to see out the whole thing – the main story, not the time sink endgame – coop, it’s how The Division 2 performs as a single-player campaign that may ultimately decide how far I take this fight.

Excellent combat, dated design

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.

Touchdown's beam katana is back and will need to be recharged during combat.

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

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.
