Its simple rules coupled with the brief length of its rounds make Tharsis very easy to pick up and get addicted to...for a few hours. Unfortunately, so much of its gameplay is reliant on luck, which can make for an incredibly frustrating and unforgiving experience.
The vast amount of options that are available with The Sims 4: Get Together's new club mechanic will add plenty more hours of fun for existing fans of the base game, but I don't think it's quite enough to entice dissatisfied players back to the series.
Built for co-op, Mayan Death Robots has a lot to love in its style and humour and will be best appreciated by fans of Team17's Worms series. Overall, however, the game is too bare to provide players with any more than just a few hours of explosive, strategic action.
If you're a fan of the series (or just of JRPGs in general), then The Legend Of Heroes: Trails In The Sky SC will offer you an engaging narrative as well as enough complex and challenging battles to tide you over till Christmas.
The Park may be very short, but it certainly leaves an impact. Taking a trip to Atlantic Island Park will reward horror fans with an unsettling tale of emotional trauma adorned with a number of well-orchestrated frights. As the game itself so ominously suggests, you should turn off the lights, plug in some headphones, and enjoy the ride.
Mushroom 11 is overflowing with an effectively grim atmosphere and some brilliantly original ideas. Although I do have some gripes with the tricky controls, the game ultimately offers a challenging physics-based experience that is enough to satisfy any fan of puzzle platformers.
