6 / 10.0 - Goat Simulator 3
Nov 17, 2022

This sequel raises the baa, but I just wish the silliness was a bit more stable.

Smash open every jar in your vicinity and gather some Hacksilver together. God of War Ragnarok is an essential purchase.

6.5 / 10.0 - Gotham Knights
Oct 20, 2022

Basically, Gotham Knights got pushed out of the belfry when it was only barely, kinda, sorta ready to fly.

Part I is like the in-game axe upgraded with a roll of tape and a pair of scissors. Obviously, the original item was massively bloody capable already—of near perfect design in form and function. Even still, this thing has now somehow become waaay sharper than any sane person could have imagined. Give it even half a chance to get a piece of you, and it’s gonna cut deep.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge is the gaming revamp equivalent of the time Donatello took a perfectly good Volkswagen bus and upcycled it into the high-tech, tubular AF Turtle Van. Hitch a ride, dudes.

When the twin suns set on my time with LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga, it was obvious to me that this production is lavished with love and worth every stud of its asking price. I've been around the block(s) with TT's games for some 15 years now, and this is without a doubt the best thing they've ever snapped together. If you're a gamer who's young or young-at-heart-container, I'd be very surprised if this didn't instantly click with you.

9 / 10.0 - Gran Turismo 7
Mar 2, 2022

Gran Turismo 7 is a triple threat: it's one of the best sounding, most luscious-looking and phenomenal feeling racers I've ever played in my life

Horizon: Forbidden West is still a top-tier game that’s well worth emptying one’s pouch of metal shards to purchase.

These are landmark titles and Naughty Dog's engaging gameplay and exquisite craftsmanship have been put on display for a whole new generation.

I'm a diehard fan of the GTA series, but I'm of two minds about this up and down port to the Unreal 4 Engine. The initial wow-factor of the visual upgrade is undeniable, but the more you play it, the more cracks appear in that pretty veneer. Some of those are legacy fissures that have not been repaired. Others are eyesore imperfections wrought by a new team of less-than-master craftspeople.

Unscored - Battlefield 2042
Nov 11, 2021

Essentially, I'm going to spend a few more days in the trenches to get a better handle on what appears to be, at the time of writing, a promise-filled yet obviously imperfect sequel.

7.5 / 10.0 - Far Cry 6
Oct 6, 2021

At the end of the day, Far Cry 6 successfully conjures the alluring tropical beauty of FC3's sandbox, FC4's verticality and mountaineering, along with the weirdo weaponry of New Dawn.

Deathloop is never anything less than absolute edge-of-your-seat gaming

Ghost if Tsushima Director's Cut isn't as revolutionary as its invasion-thwarting subject matter, but it's still a damn nice slice of samurai escapism. If nothing else, Sucker Punch has secured a solid new-gen beachhead to (hopefully) launch a multi-sequel assault.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a phenomenal, PS5 system seller, and you should invest all your bolts in it.

8.5 / 10.0 - Returnal

Returnal makes an important, evolutionary (house)marque on the arcade shooter landscape.

Sackboy delivers some damn good jumpy-jumpy material.

For a launch title, the worth of Spider-Man: Miles Morales is undeniable. It offers an expensive-TV-justifying visual feast – not to mention a tantalising "What Dreams May Come" glimpse at the sugar encrusted future of eye-candy. (Console hasn't even launched yet and I can feel my eyes getting the diabeetus.) Likewise, it delivers super-fast load times and an immersive, tactile DualSense experience you simply can't 'feel' anywhere else.
