3 / 5.0 - Blood & Truth
May 28, 2019

This is an expanded, though not evolved, London Heist. A full game with gunplay that can be fun, if not exactly innovative. Unfortunately almost everything else surrounding the gunplay is either tedious or poorly implemented or both.

It might not top the previous entry overall, but it still manages to nail all the essentials with tight handling, beautifully varied tracks and a plethora of modes, and the team aspect of this entry is a welcome change, if not a totally flawless one.

A simple and short experience that nevertheless is funny and full of ideas. A promising start for more to come.

4 / 5.0 - Mortal Kombat 11
Apr 22, 2019

A fun game that is presented well and is rich in content. A solid foundation marred by a slog to obtain items in the single player mode.

A passable conclusion that provides a degree of closure to fans who gave stuck with the game since the beginning. What it lacks in quality it kind of makes up for in lore.

5 / 5.0 - Devil May Cry 5
Mar 6, 2019

One of the best and deepest battle systems, making for an exciting game that always pushes you to do better and learn more, coupled to an eclectic and cool cast of characters starring in breathtaking scenes with plenty of enemies and bosses to strut your stuff on. A triumphant return after 11 years and an instant classic.

A classic that hasn't had its brilliance diminished by time, brimming with colorful characters and memorable moments, and a presentation that is still visually and aurally attractive.

3.5 / 5.0 - Far Cry: New Dawn
Feb 14, 2019

An enjoyable game that never rises to anything more for anyone familiar with the series, and for newcomers Far Cry 4 might be a better choice.

4.5 / 5.0 - Kingdom Hearts III
Feb 9, 2019

A great conclusion to a long running chapter brimming with imagination, variety and plain fun, but can't avoid being saddled with a convoluted and poorly-told story and occasional bouts of boredom. An uneven experience, albeit one that more than makes up for it with some of the best moments of this generation.

4.5 / 5.0 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 22, 2019

A triumphant remake and reimagining of a beloved classic that makes it stand toe-to-toe with modern games, even if the seventh entry succeeded more in that aspect.

Interesting plot with good main missions and filler side missions that are too similar to those of the main game. Recommended only to fans of the game.

A charming platformer with an abundance of ideas and a decent challenge, one that utilizes VR well to make you feel part of the game world.

Nov 28, 2018

An engrossing and hectic game and one of the best VR experiences, and this version while an important feature kind of makes up for it with a bevy of smaller new features.

Like the first one, second DLC does not bring with it anything new, and is aimed at those who are looking for an excuse to return to the game in the form of an interesting story, but for those looking for something substantial this also isn't it.

4 / 5.0 - Sunset Overdrive
Nov 20, 2018

It might not offer much over the Xbox One original, but this remains one of the developer's best games and one of the best open-world games ever, with a traversal and fighting system that is both fast and smooth, and with world and mission design that focuses on gameplay first.

3 / 5.0 - Déraciné
Nov 13, 2018

A quaint and slow paced game that sometimes veers on boredom but nevertheless has its share of moments. Treat it more like an experiment, albeit one with a high entry fee, through its VR and move requirements.

It might not be as famous as Crash Bandicoot or as well made as the Nintendo 64's finest, but this still a gorgeous remake of a classic series offered at an attractive price.

4.5 / 5.0 - Tetris Effect
Nov 9, 2018

Classic Tetris with the audio/visual touches we're used to from Lumines developer Mizuguchi. The lack of versus mode is a tiny blemish on a game about challenging yourself and your friends' high scores. Tetris in its most gorgeous form.

2 / 5.0 - The Quiet Man
Nov 3, 2018

A unique experience, something we don't usually expect from risk averse major publishers, but its strangeness is let down by poor execution and repetition.
