8 / 10 - Rage 2
May 24, 2019

Oh, what a day! What a lovely day! Rage 2 comes screaming into the world adorned with pink neon and a stinking attitude problem. Big guns, fast cars, blood-soaked combat and a ridiculous sense of fun make for one of the most thoroughly entertaining games of 2019.

If you're going to charge big for DLC, you better deliver big. Leviathans has content, but it's locked behind dozens of hours of standard playthrough. It does make small, indiscernible improvements to the base game but you can, and should, wait for a sale and pick it up then.

8 / 10 - For the King
May 16, 2019

A joyous celebration of tabletop RPG gaming brought to console, For the King may have all the looks of a cute, fluffy, bunny — but it has an iron hard skeleton and the heart of a warrior.

The first of three new DLCs for Overcooked 2 cooks up enough indulgent chaos to satisfy even the most fussy of eaters. Campfire Cook Off is a wonderfully manic and hilarious slice of content that only adds to the already superb base game.

5 / 10 - Outward
Apr 30, 2019

A beautiful concept marred by poor fighting mechanics, lacklustre graphics and a punishing learning curve that sucks all the fun out of adventuring. Outward has the potential to earn cult status, but will turn away all but the most diehard of fans.

The Division 2 is a hefty step-up from its predecessor, with a massive amount of content to keep you engaged for weeks. Massive has created a truly engaging shared world game which remembers it's the players, and not the shareholders, that come first and foremost.

A slick PC to console port that stands proudly on its own two feet/tentacles — Stellaris is a fine example of grand strategy that melts away hours upon hours of your time in a haze of deadly supernovas, hypervelocity railguns and diplomacy through gritted teeth.

9 / 10 - Metro Exodus
Mar 5, 2019

Metro Exodus confidently takes the franchise into 'AAA' territory with a tense, exciting, survival horror game that balances exciting action with methodical stealth and a stunning open world. Just remember: it's not always the dark you should be afraid of.

That it dares to be the price of a AAA title is insulting enough, but to be so brazen as to drag down an honest attempt at Supercross simulation means that this just isn't worth even a minute of your time.

9 / 10 - Ashen
Jan 9, 2019

Infinitely accessible, but challenging enough for any seasoned player, Ashen exudes an air of peace and hope in an unforgiving landscape. It's not perfect, but it resonates with the soul and gravitas befitting a Shakespearean classic.

A game confused about what it wants to be — an accessible and fun side-scroller for the whole family to enjoy, or a brutal experiment into what Dark Souls would be like in a 16-bit format. Battle Princess Madelyn looks and sounds the part, but is so unforgiving it sucks all the fun out of it.

An incredible passion project eschewing video game norms and wearing its heart proudly on its sleeve, The First Tree is a masterfully executed work of art and storytelling showcasing the harsh realities of life even in the face of beautiful surroundings.

6 / 10 - Darksiders III
Dec 11, 2018

Do you like hacking? Are you a fan of slashing? Darksiders III fails to live up to its potential, but fans of the series will ultimately still enjoy the third installment depicting the sagas of the Four Horsemen.

A criminal waste of source material that borders on blasphemy — ACHTUNG! Cthulhu Tactics proves that, once again, book adaptations (for the most part) just don't work. Even if that source has tentacles.

Improving what it's done time and time and time and time again with a sexier (read: crasser) coat of paint thrown on it. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 does exactly what it says on the tin — that is, not very much of anything new or different.

Impress your warden, yes? With strong MMO mechanics, continued punchy gameplay, a brand new Raid, outstanding PVP/PVE modes and more loot than Varik's personal stash for those willing to grind for it. Forsaken gives players both old and new the content they deserve.

With the welcome additions of online multiplayer and a versus arcade mode, Overcooked 2 provides even more opportunities to riff off your very best profanities while brandishing a frying pan for dramatic effect — a superb party game for all ages and sensibilities.

6 / 10 - Earthfall
Jul 31, 2018

Earthfall often skirts too far into derivative gameplay territory, but at its heart is a game meant for friends to fight off alien swarms while quoting only the cheesiest of sci-fi action film lines. It isn't perfect, but it doesn't have to be in order to be fun.
