A glorious return for the hardcore tactical stealth genre.

A fun reason to jump back into Deus Ex, but not necessarily worth dropping coin for the Season Pass.

Approachable yet deep, this is one of the best in the franchise to date.

10 / 10.0 - Gears of War 4

A gleefully gritty, gruesome, and grand continuation of the franchise.

7 / 10.0 - ReCore
Sep 21, 2016

A charming, fun old-school-style action-platformer that's about twice as long as it should have been.

More akin to a great part one of a television two-parter – awesome, but not the whole story.

Stunning art and music design, but shallow when it comes to depth of meaning and gameplay.

Fun, easy, creepy, scary, bizarre, and oozing with atmosphere, but doesn’t quite stick the landing.

Fantastic lineup and gameplay, but lacks in modes, party options, and a context-providing campaign.

A very atmospheric, but unfortunately mediocre rinse-repeat horror title.

Interesting concept, and fun with friends, but a lack of online competition makes it rather dull.

Damn near everything I could have hoped for out of a Pillars of Eternity expansion

Puzzle design, backgrounds, and atmosphere hold up, but not much else.

8.7 / 10.0 - Beyond: Two Souls
Dec 8, 2015

If you liked any of Quantic Dreams' previous titles, or are a fan of pick-a-path adventure titles like those from Telltale Games, I'd say the Playstation 4 version of Beyond: Two Souls will bring a decent amount of joy. The story is a little slow throughout, and it often feels like an interactive cutscene, but the graphics are good, the choices are interesting, the acting is great, and overall I feel the journey is more than worth the price of entry.

Heavy decisions and fun action, but a poor end to an overall enjoyable season

8.9 / 10.0 - Halo 5: Guardians
Oct 27, 2015

For fans of the franchise, I'd say it's worth your time, but it could be a tough entry point for newcomers. As for fans of Halo's multiplayer, I think there's more than enough to sink your teeth into, and at this point all I can say is that Halo 6's campaign can't come soon enough - but I'm sure Warzone will tide me over until then.

6 / 10.0 - Nova-111
Sep 2, 2015

There is fun to be had if you're after a tiny challenge during a coffee break, or you're playing on your Playstation Vita in short bursts, but otherwise Nova-111 is a fairly forgettable title - and that's a real shame.

Truth be told, I enjoyed my time with The White March - Part One. It was a great reason to jump back in, and while it's not as grand as some of the RPG expansions we've had for other games in this genre (see Baldur's Gate: Throne of Bhaal), it was still a good experience, and one that works almost seamlessly into a new player's playthrough of the main game.

Despite having a few gripes with this Chapter, I most certainly feel it's worth the price of admission.

Episode 5 has it's flaws, and as I've said, there is a quite a bit of what felt like filler content, but as a lead-in to the finale, it left us with numerous cliffhangers, and a gloriously tough decision that is sure to make what's up next a ton of fun.
