With just a few small additions, such as private matches and cross-play, this would quite simply become one of, if not the best party games available on current platforms. It can't be underestimated how difficult it is to create something quite so accessible and fun simultaneously.

There's not really many ways of sugar coating it; this game is a mess on Xbox One and isn't worth your time. Surely any other fishing game would be worth considering if you have that urge.

It's a little janky at times and the interface a bit cumbersome, but at its core it's a brilliantly entertaining game that knows what it wants to be, and achieves it well.

4 / 10.0 - Spuds Unearthed
Jun 23, 2020

There's a core gameplay loop that could have some substance, but it's surrounded by a confused interface, a simply awful tutorial, with surface-level complexity that needn't exist.

New Horizons is simply the best Animal Crossing game to date. New features have been expertly developed, the pacing is perfect whilst retaining the magical charm the series has always been based upon. The latest in a growing line of must-own Switch titles.

5 / 10.0 - The Complex
Mar 31, 2020

Performances are mostly solid aside from the main protagonist, but the lacklustre script with a severe lack of character development aside from large amounts of exposition make it difficult to really care about any of them. Some of the endings are quite abrupt, leaving an unsatisfying finish. I find it unlikely that The Complex will win fans over to the genre, but those who do have a dedication may find something to enjoy.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Outer Worlds
Nov 17, 2019

Obsidian could have easily fallen into the trap of creating a straight up Fallout clone, but the various planets in the Halcyon solar system and the types of quest available provides a good amount of variety, with excellent splashings of humour and moral dilemmas. It's not breaking new ground, but it struts its stuff very well.

Newcomers to the series are very much recommended to plump for this collection, it's got everything you need and the story is excellent. Otherwise, it's probably not worth shelling out to buy everything again.

It's one of those games that's alright for a couple of hours if you can get it at a deep discount. Otherwise, it's just too frustrating to recommend.

If you enjoy long track races, and want a new challenge, ETRC is almost certainly that. However, if that's not your thing, there is nothing this game does that will lure you over.
