Assassin's Creed Odyssey is still an enjoyable game thanks to an intriguing storyline and one of the best graphics the series has ever seen. Sure it feels like Origins 2.0, although there is enough new content for Odyssey to stand out on its own. That being said, leveling up can be boring and some of the side quests get repetitive and boring after a while. Odyssey is still worth playing though if you can get used to its many flaws regarding its progression.
Despite some minor flaws, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is an excellent addition to the new trilogy that started with the reboot in 2013. The fact that this game favors exploration over action sequences is a huge plus for me. It's also worth mentioning it's one of the most beautiful looking games you will play all year long. If you liked the new Tomb Raider games, then you will certainly enjoy playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider as this game brings back to the roots of the series where it focuses more on exploration rather than action.
Naruto to Buruto: Shinobi Striker is an interesting game because it's unlike any other Naruto game released before it. Its focus on multiplayer modes might turn off some gamers mainly because the game lacks a traditional single player mode. That being said, there is still some fun to be had in the game if you are able to get used to the fast paced and repetitive gameplay.
Overall, No Man's Sky Next is a huge improvement over the original game because there are new features and better visuals for you to look at. It's worth playing the game if you still own a copy of it and want to download the free update. However, the game can still be boring at times and I don't think it does enough to entice new players to give it a try.

The majority of Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 is excellent as the earlier games in the series are still fun to play even 20 years later. Sure you need to be an expert at 2D shooters to get the most fun out of them, but the Rookie Hunter mode does make things slightly easier for noobs. Just try and ignore Mega Man X6 and Mega Man X7 because they’re by far the weakest additions to the Mega Man X franchise.
Defiance 2050 is not a very good game thanks to all of the technical hiccups I encountered during its launch week. Even if the launch issues are all fixed, the game itself leaves a lot to be desired. The outdated visuals and repetitive gameplay are a turn off and you’re better off playing Warframe or any other free to play MMO instead. That said, you can still find some type of enjoyment in this game if you are a fan of shooting games, but other games offer better variety than this.
It goes without saying that Tennis World Tour is matched with Sea of Thieves as one of the worst video games I have played in 2018. The game is incomplete and should not have been released to the public at its current state. Even if the game was complete, the core gameplay feels sluggish and it's not very fun. If you had to choose between Tennis World Tour and AO International Tennis, the latter seems to be the better option for tennis gamers right now. Avoid Tennis World Tour until more patches are released.
All in all, A Way Out is an innovative game and one that is recommended for people with a close friend or family member to play with. You can either bond together doing the co-op activities, or troll one another for some cheap laughs. Either way, it’s one of the best co-op experiences I’ve ever had in many years. Sure the game is short, but the unique gameplay and excellent story made me hooked until the very end. Even though it’s only March, A Way Out is my favorite game of the year thus far.
