Dragon Ball Fighter Z is a great fighting game while paying homage to the original Akira Toriyama series lovers by fans. The combat system seems simple but do not get fooled. If you want to master the game, you might have to watch couple of top players videos as it really gets complicated once you must pull out different character synergies and combos. Couple of issues here and there such as the difficulty level being too easy in story mode, but this should not ruin the great work put together by Arc System Works.
Despite the lack of originality in the genre, Horizon Zero Dawn is a textbook example of a game perfectly put together to give the audience an emotional and unforgettable experience. The freshness and the beautifully crafted world is what we have been waiting to see this year and it has been delivered on a golden platter. Aloy just gave Lara Croft a run for her money. She is the ultimate badass.
Detroit: Become Human is another masterpiece from Quantic Dream which will make us morally think about what the near future holds for humanity. There are so many references to our current present lifestyles pointed out, as people are more and more dependent on smart devices, which will move you deeply.
Ubisoft’s For Honor is an enjoyable, visually stunning and gritty experience that might be a bit too original for its own good. Being such a niche genre might push away your normal players, and the singleplayer part might not be enough for someone to cough up $60. Nevertheless, with the right community management, a steady flow of updates, balancing and a ranked mode coming, it could become something great, like what happened with Rainbow Six Siege, 6 month after its launch. Who knows? But for now, give this title a chance as it’s a good one.
While it’s tough to mix complex tactics with mainstream shooter mechanics, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands manages to offer up a tactical shooter that can appeal to a broad audience and still have something for the tactics aficionados. There’s a ton to see and do in their dystopian version of Bolivia, and it’s probably a good idea to bring a friend if you want to enjoy the game’s terrific online co-op.
The experience was very well thought of, and Antihero is one of the few indie games that I see myself returning to play day after day. I only wish they can add 3 or 4 more players and have bigger maps as the chaos will be entertaining. Despite certain bugs, I highly recommend everyone to play the game at least once, it is something rare and a true hidden gem yet to be discovered.
Whether you are a veteran RPG gamer or just someone trying it out for the first time, do not expect Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition to be that perfect experience for the genre. However rest assured that you will have a lot of fun exploring the beautiful world that is in front of you along with a beautifully written story. It is a great adventure rich with ideas.
Dead in Vinland is a great sequel to its predecessor and is one of the most successful indies we have seen this year. The game is always full of challenges and will satisfy all survivor genre fanatics. CCCP truly blew it out of the park with this one.
SoulCalibur VI is a good fighting game with a great combat system, friendly to a newcomer but hard to master. There are enough modes to capture the interest of the mass and a wide list of characters to choose from. Bandai Namco has done a good job bringing this series back to life in this subtle restart to the franchise. They managed to take the best from the previous instalments and adapt to the new era of fighting games.
Stick it to the Man is a game that attracts attention for its style, the black humor and the puzzles work well together to create this beautiful 2D world of paper and takes you in a spectacular journey. This game can be summed by 2 simple words, beautiful aesthetics. It is well developed with perfect humor. I enjoyed solving the puzzles however I would have liked to see a little bit more stage interaction.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas offers a courageous new experience for gamers. The usage of toys is exceptionally well done but we are not sure if it is for everyone. They are also unnecessary as they don't really give you an extra edge since the game is complete as is and tons of fun to play. Ubisoft nevertheless learned from the mistakes of No Man Sky and managed to give us everything we wanted to see in space exploration with a twist. We would personally like to see more content coming out soon along with more intractability with planets. Overall, we highly recommend this game if you are into space exploration games.
Dead by Daylight is not a game that had big budgets to back it up, so not being perfect is understandable, however we do not see any excuse on not fixing the mistakes they faced on PC before the release of the console version. But to be fair, the game is highly entertaining specially if all your friends are in the same lobby playing both factions. We have hopes for the future of the game as we can see the developers are already working on new content.
