Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark is an easy recommendation for anyone who loves playing Japanese tactical role-playing games.

Close to the Sun is an exploration adventure game that has the visuals, the atmosphere and the tension, but one key element, the gameplay, is under cooked compared to the rest.

7 / 10 - World War Z
May 7, 2019

And that really is what it comes down to. I feel that if anyone enjoys cooperative player vs environment games like Left 4 Dead, Strange Brigade or Warhammer: Vermintide, then World War Z is for you. It's not the greatest of the bunch, but it scratches the same itch as the above games while bringing a little something of its own with the swarm mechanic.

The Caligula Effect Overdose is a mixed bag, a Japanese RPG filled with potentially awesome ideas and concepts that don't quite work or need fleshing out more.

Having never heard much about the developers or this game, I was genuinely surprised at how great Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden turned out to be.

Mutant Football League: Dynasty Edition brings with it some small improvements over the base game by including a mode that adds increased longevity over its standard Season, but fails in the beginning to be engaging due to the lack of balance between the player's starting footballers against the rest of the league's teams.

Warriors Orochi 4 doesn't do much to advance the Orochi spin-off, but it does bring a return to the old formula, something fans will no doubt enjoy after Dynasty Warriors 9‘s misstep.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is an accumulation of Rockstar Games' expertise in building open world games, but has seen them push the genre in a way that might not have been expected from them.

Fishing Sim World will have its audience, but it is certainly a niche genre.

It might have taken a long time to arrival in its full form, but the developers have made the wait worthy.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 knows what made its predecessor an enjoyable time and brings improvements that Xbox One players now get to experience at a fantastic price of £23.

No thrills is quite a good description when speaking about V-Rally 4 overall.

7 / 10 - Strange Brigade
Sep 16, 2018

Strange Brigade is a solid recommendation for anyone looking to dig into some old school third-person shooting wrapped in that Left 4 Dead campaign style with an added bit of 1930s distinct flavour.

9 / 10 - Yakuza Kiwami 2
Sep 3, 2018

Yakuza Kiwami 2 does a fabulously job recreating the original sequel, making it one of the best remakes available on the market.

8 / 10 - Yakuza 0
Aug 21, 2018

After the success of Yakuza 0 on PlayStation 4, I hope this move to PC enables it to reach more of an audience, because those titles have been delivering quality experiences since first appearing on the PlayStation 2.

8 / 10 - Mothergunship

Mothergunship could have easily been a failure, but somehow it comes together as a creative and inventive package.

It's not an awful game by any means, it's just a fine JRPG, but with a predictable story and repeated backtracking, this is a game that is lacking any spark to be anything other than a local school orchestra rather than being the London symphony.

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is mostly a good title that comes with some innovative ideas, but falls short in other areas regarding its performance and level design.

If you are looking for a charming and damn right silly plot, and you don't mind paying a little more for your puzzle action to have it on the Switch, then I feel you will certainly find a lot to like with Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido and its captivating bizarre world of sushi eating puzzle combat.

7 / 10 - Vampyr
Jun 20, 2018

Fans of Dontnod Entertainment will find plenty to like with how the team has developed this action RPG. If you want a game that delivers an engaging plot, great character building and memorable personalities, while offering choice above the often black and white "choice matter" options, which give a sense that the NPCs have meaning to its world, its characters and the player, then this is for you.
