7.5 / 10.0 - Kingdom Hearts III
Feb 14, 2019

Often as infuriating as it is entertaining, Kingdom Hearts III bolsters the series’ trademark commitment to nonsense, both for better and for worse.

7.5 / 10.0 - FutureGrind
Jan 27, 2019

FutureGrind may not do much to reinvent the genre, but it is an enticing and ludicrously addictive entry into an under-served gaming niche.

7.5 / 10.0 - Pikuniku
Jan 26, 2019

Pikuniku doesn’t do much new with the cutesy indie game formula, but it does present a beguilingly offbeat mood, wrapped around some enticingly colourful visuals and snappy gameplay that doesn’t tax the brain.

The Hong Kong Massacre doesn’t offer much at all in terms of story and has a few rough edges, but as a to-the-point strategic gore-fest, it delivers the basic, addictive goods for the 4-5 hours it’ll probably last you.

8 / 10.0 - A Fisherman's Tale
Jan 22, 2019

It’s clear that more could’ve been done with this incredible premise, but what’s here is nevertheless a brilliantly paced and impeccably designed puzzler that’s easily one of the most inventive and memorable PSVR titles to date.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a stubbornly old-fashioned title in some areas and to that end does little to roll out the red carpet for newbies, but if you can stomach some of its more peculiar design choices, there is a tenaciously addictive and entertaining game underneath.

3.5 / 10.0 - The Quiet Man
Nov 4, 2018

The Quiet Man near-instantly derails a compelling concept with its most horrid execution and thigh-slapping self-seriousness, and is sure to go down as one of the worst games of 2018.

7.5 / 10.0 - Transference
Sep 20, 2018

Though this sinewy psychological thriller may prove both disappointingly brief and overtly obtuse for some headset owners, as an exercise in pure, distilled atmosphere, it's one of PSVR's most bracingly effective offerings so far in 2018.

In many ways Shadow of the Tomb Raider is an apotheosis of everything the reboot series has attempted to achieve, and while this certainly makes it feel like a greatest hits of the franchise at times, the gorgeous hub-worlds and superb pacing ensure it's an easy recommendation for fans of the prior titles.

7.5 / 10.0 - Mario Tennis Aces

8 / 10.0 - Unravel Two
Jun 11, 2018

Though dialling back the frustration and amping up the breezy enjoyment is the key to Unravel Two being an overall more satisfying experience than its predecessor, the inclusion of co-op really is the pièce de résistance. It transforms an already endearing indie platformer into a gleeful social experience.

8 / 10.0 - Onrush
Jun 10, 2018

Onrush is one of the more intriguing (non)racers to come down the pike in quite some time; a slick, lightning-paced breath of fresh air for those who find Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport drier than sawdust.

7 / 10.0 - Immortal Redneck
May 19, 2018

If you're craving an undemanding shoot 'em up romp that has little time for niceties such as an actual narrative, Immortal Redneck's minimalist carnage just might do the trick.

7.5 / 10.0 - Laser League
May 15, 2018

Laser League isn’t a revolution for the genre, but it deserves plenty of credit for not just cynically rehashing the successes of its forebears and betting on a more inventive central gameplay loop.

9 / 10.0 - God of War
Apr 27, 2018

Rarely do games feel as singularly visionary as God of War; this is a rarest of AAA games with no whiff of publisher interference or executive meddling whatsoever. Almost entirely fat-free while still serving up literally dozens of hours of worthwhile, value-filled entertainment, that it does this alongside an unexpectedly visceral and emotionally involving story makes it an elite, towering accomplishment that a sequel nevertheless has the potential to build and improve upon.

There are sure to be passionate debates about where exactly Yakuza 6 lies in the grand pantheon of Sega’s titanic franchise, but with its smash-mouth combat, surprisingly engrossing story and wealth of wacky content, it is nothing if not another towering entry.

It is light fun at its best, and a neutered knock-off of [Trials] at its worst. More than anything, it’ll likely leave you craving an actual Trials game on the Switch as soon as humanly possible.

5.5 / 10.0 - Sea of Thieves
Mar 27, 2018

How much patience you’ll have for Sea of Thieves will depend almost entirely on your social set-up, how much you care for loot and how allergic you are to repetition.

6.5 / 10.0 - Kirby Star Allies
Mar 21, 2018

It's cute, easy to play and nice to look at, but by the end of it, you'll probably be left craving something that pushes back at least the teensiest bit.
