Ubisoft takes big steps in the right direction with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. The environment is well-crafted, the characters are engaging, traversal is fun, and the story is compelling. The addition of the Rooks adds a fantastic new dynamic to the game. Despite its moderately unresponsive gameplay, the latest installment of the series succeeded in impressing us.

8.2 / 10.0 - Star Wars Battlefront
Nov 16, 2015

EA and DICE’s revival of Star Wars Battlefront struck all the right tonal and atmospheric chords. The polished visuals and attention to detail is impressive and the gameplay is smooth and exciting. However, the game lacks content and would have benefited from including the season pass in the core game from the start.

7.3 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 0 HD
Jan 18, 2016

Resident Evil Zero HD will satisfy any puzzle-solving fan and it uses the two characters wisely in many sections of the game. The information you collect from roaming around the map and picking up journal entries is fantastic and acts as a great origin story for the series. However, the story you play is weak, the characters are bland, and the shooting is terrible. There’s also no sign of horror in this supposedly horror game.

9.5 / 10.0 - Firewatch
Feb 10, 2016

Firewatch is truly a storytelling masterpiece. The mystery unfolds at a proper pace as you explore the beautiful Wyoming wilderness and the characters naturally grow as they encounter different experience. Rich Sommer and Cissy Jones did an exceptional job with the voice acting, bringing Henry and Delilah to life and making me form an emotional bond with them. I highly recommend this game to anyone who loves a great story.

9.5 / 10.0 - XCOM 2
Feb 14, 2016

XCOM 2 succeeds in being the most varied and refined installment in the series. With randomized missions, diverse squad customization options, and a tough as nails enemy AI, XCOM 2 is an amazing game that I will gladly revisit multiple times and I recommend you do too.

8.6 / 10.0 - Far Cry Primal
Feb 22, 2016

The world of Far Cry Primal is alive and rich with diverse flora and fauna that bring out the hunter/gatherer in you. The tools and weapons you use offer a refreshing take on shooting games. However the weak story and uninspired villains makes the game feel somewhat directionless.

The Division is an absolutely incredible game that sets a new standard for teamwork, tactics, and customization. You don’t need to be an online multiplayer expert to be able to enjoy everything this game has to offer. The world is rich and and full of incredible storytelling details that bring it to life and I enjoyed exploring every corner with my group.

9.2 / 10.0 - Ratchet & Clank
Apr 11, 2016

Ratchet and Clank is the epitome of everything Insomniac has learned over the years. It mixes the best parts of the series with new gameplay features and improved graphics to create an exciting adventure filled with charming characters, creative weaponry, witty humor, and a universe you won’t soon forget. If you’ve played Ratchet and Clank games before you’ll find this revisit like meeting an old friend you love. If you haven’t, get ready for an exceptional experience you might not find anywhere else.

8.5 / 10.0 - Alienation
Apr 25, 2016

If you’re coming into this game expecting something like Helldivers or Dead Nation (and according to Housemarque it’s supposed to be the latter’s “spiritual successor”) you’re going to be happily surprised. The gameplay is smooth and rewarding with varied alien types, fast-paced action, and total alien carnage. It’s definitely a better experience when you’re playing co-op as some of the levels are too daunting for solo-play but you will find that either way the game is worth both your time and money.
