Journey to the Savage Planet weaves an intriguing interstellar narrative into a charming, albeit straightforward, first-person rogue-lite. At its best, Typhoon Studios' game is a fun and quirky take on a pretty rote subject. Unfortunately, it struggles under the weight of poor controls, some awkward design choices and an unfortunate lack of polish.
Death Stranding is a game about connections, common understandings and hope. It's also a game where the earth can swallow you up and you can be attacked by a giant tar monster. It manages to do both of those things whilst maintaining a consistent story and tone on its way to being one of the most compelling games of the generation.
Devil May Cry 5 is a wonderfully ridiculous game that rightfully returns the series to the spotlight. In many ways it feels very safe, but by willing to take a few risks and do more than satiate an existing fanbase, Capcom has injected new life into this once dormant franchise with a stylish and worthwhile addition.
