Destroy All Humans! was a unique title when it launched back in 2005. With players taking the role of an alien invader set on conquering Earth and taking revenge. The first title was well-received for having players play as the villain but lack variety and was short for a full-price title. There were 2 more games after the first, with the third game being the final due to poor sales and reception and the series being dormant. THQ Nordic has revived the franchise and remade the first game for modern gamers to enjoy and older gamers to revisit but this isn’t a simple HD remake. Black Forest Games has provided a refreshing update to the dated visuals and massive improvements to the core gameplay. Destroy All Humans! doesn’t take itself seriously and in doing so provides a fun and short adventure as you kill humans and conquer Earth in the name of the Furon Empire.
Sucker Punch brought us the colorful charming world of Sly Cooper and the dark superhero adventures of inFamous. Ghost of Tsushima is a radical shift for this studio in atmosphere and gameplay while using what the studio has learned from their past projects to deliver one of the best games this generation. A beautiful samurai adventure teeming with optional adventures as you drive the Mongols from 13th century Japan. Yes, it has minor faults that often break up the action during critical moments and the platforming doesn’t carry the same precision as past Sucker Punch titles but these are tiny holes in this outstanding adventure. Ghost of Tsushima takes the player on an epic samurai odyssey that everyone should play.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated gives this cult classic a second chance at fame and you don't want to miss out this time.
Minecraft Dungeons isn't like traditional Minecraft. There's no building or crafting, instead, it's a hack and slash title that takes a lot of reference from Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo series. With the player traveling through multiple biomes to save the Villages from a deadly threat. It still carries the Minecraft charm with enemies and locations designed after the massively popular indie title but doesn't attempt to take advantage of the mechanics that made the franchise such a hit. Instead, relying on the Minecraft charm for an average experience.
The Wonderful 101 is one of the least known titles from acclaimed developer PlatinumGames. Released as a Wii U exclusive the game garnered positive reception but due to the console selling poorly not a lot of people played it. Now, PlatinumGames has rereleased the title for modern systems thanks to a massively successful Kickstarter campaign. The Wonderful 101: Remastered is a creatively charming adventure that masks its difficulty with cute characters and bright colors. However, the game's core mechanics and the poor camera often lead to a lot of frustrating moments that artificially increase the game's difficulty.

Coming off the massive success of Resident Evil 2 2019 Capcom decided to remake another classic title, Resident Evil 3. Remaining loyal to the canon lore this revisiting of Jill Valentine's nightmare through Raccoon City provides all the iconic moments from the original. As the deadly mutated beast Nemesis hunts the S.T.A.R.S. agent through the night, killing anyone who gets in its way. Despite the campaign providing an outstanding survival-horror campaign the brief experience is over just as quickly. With little alternative options to entice players to keep playing the single-player. The multiplayer does a decent job of offering a decent 1v4 competitive option. Despite the shortcomings, Resident Evil 3 2020 provides a short quality adventure as you attempt to survive the infected streets of Raccoon City.
