Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection is an excellent package and another wonderfully executed preservation job from Digital Eclipse. Not all the games hold up under a modern lens, but this is still a must own for any TMNT fan.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection uses the PlayStation 5 hardware to make two of PlayStation's modern classics even better. It's a must play for those new to the series whilst also being fresh enough for returning fans to warrant an overdue replay.
Rainbow Six Extraction is fun whilst it lasts, but there's simply not enough content here to keep players coming back long term. Its sharp gunplay and unpredictable scenarios are huge positives, but it lacks the required depth to become a proper multiplayer staple.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - Definitive Edition is a lazy attempt at bringing three classic games into the modern era. Visually inconsistent, riddled with bugs and below par in so many other areas, the only thing this collection has going for it is nostalgia and solid foundations.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is an over-the-top thrill ride that showcases the power of the PlayStation 5 whilst having the most fun possible. Fast, fluid and filled with outstanding set pieces and the series' absurd arsenal of weapons, this game takes Insomniac's action-platformer to another level.
Spirit of the North: Enhanced Edition is a game trying so hard to replicate and better its peers that it loses its way. From the story and lore of the world, to the puzzle solving and even the visuals, everything about it feels held back and the little it does well isn't enough to justify its lengthy playtime.
A victory lap for the FIFA franchise on current generation hardware, FIFA 21 manages to combine every positive addition to the series and triumph. Despite it skewing towards Ultimate Team and microtransactions, the on-pitch gameplay is the best it's ever been.
Despite its inconsistent difficulty, Crash Bandicoot 4 is still a blast. With a focus on fun and with a heavy dose of challenge, even in it's most rage-inducing moments it can't be denied that Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is excellent. It may even be the best the bandicoot has ever been.
