Yoshi's Crafted World is a charming game with a fun co-op that is sure to please kids and their parents. It is incredibly easy, which is one of the side effects of making it more accessible, but it doesn't mean the game is not fun to play at all. It is a gorgeous platformer with incredible visual style and some clever level design.
RemiLore is a flawed concept with a terrible execution that is mostly hurt by its design despite carrying some charming aesthetics and fun characters. The game could have benefited greatly from a traditional story mode instead of the focus on rogue-lite elements.
Metro Exodus is a memorable trip that is equal parts atmospheric first-person shooter and gritty survival horror drama set in a post-apocalyptic world. While suffering from some technical issues, the game itself is extremely well made from the way narration of the story happens to how combat encounters play out.
If I had to describe Fallout 76, I will say it is a flawed idea that never works well. It is simply broken and feels boring but offers a redeeming factor with the open world exploration in some well-crafted environments. The buggy nature of the game is its biggest hurdle and some quality of life changes will go a long way in molding it into something enjoyable in the future.
SoulCalibur 6 is an outstanding fighting game that shows that content is king. It features a versatile character roster backed by a great combat system, although some of the new changes do feel like they are more suited for newcomers than long-time veterans. It suffers from some technical hurdles like the load times, but overall it is an extremely polished product.
WWE 2K19 has several noticeable improvements this year and an impressive character roster. The current MyCareer mode is a welcome addition to WWE 2K19, but it needs some tweaks to make it better. This is a fun wrestling game that nonetheless has some flaws holding it back, but at least now the future looks bright for it.
Fans of Xenoblade 2 shouldn’t miss out on this expansion, however, it is difficult to recommend it to newcomers or those who didn’t really enjoy the main game. The content offered here is going to be more of the same, but with several notable improvements to the combat, exploration and progression system.
Wasteland 2: Director's Cut places a tremendous emphasis on your choices and offers a thrilling adventure set in a completely unjust world. When it comes to the Nintendo Switch version, there are technical issues, ranging from the load times to the frame rate, that it is not the smoothest experience out of all the platforms.
428: Shibuya Scramble takes some time to get into but once you start uncovering the mystery of its overarching plot, its unique story-telling and a well-developed cast are more than enough to recommend it for fans of Japanese visual novels.
Leave it to Larian Studios to make an already amazing game into an even better product. Divinity Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition is the epitome of a western role-playing game that will claim this place for a long time.
No Man's Sky has received many noticeable improvements over the course of the past 2 years but the NEXT update is perhaps the most significant one. Sadly, it still has some dated design with the need for the constant grind and a lack of rational narrative that holds back an otherwise enjoyable exploration and survival game.
Not only this is a great Sonic game made even better with the new 'Plus' expansion, it also comes packaged in with a physical version that might as well be a collector's item with the efforts spent on it to make it resemble the classic Sonic games on Sega Genesis.
If you have enjoyed your time with Prey, don’t let the random elements deter you from buying this expansion. This is basically the best thing for a downloadable content that the developers could have done with Prey’s gameplay and it is worth its asking price if you want more of the same.
As an enhanced release, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition seems to come packed with content, but the performance of the game, especially in portable mode, is rather disappointing. It is a fun Zelda spin-off that offers a good amount of fanservice and serviceable gameplay.
The Swords of Ditto is visually stunning rogue-lite RPG featuring a procedurally generated world. The experience of seeing the game through its multiple iterations ends up being a double edged sword. If you can ignore the randomness of the world, there is a lot to enjoy here.
