8 / 10.0 - Mortal Kombat 11
Apr 22, 2019

Mortal Kombat 11 is a fantastic game with rich yet accessible combat and a great story. It's also mired in grind and randomness in the post-game and causes concerns about real money transactions.

Like all games-as-a-service, it’s only going to get better with time. Unlike most recently, it’s already a great video game which leaves me very excited for what’s to come.

8.5 / 10.0 - Metro Exodus
Feb 13, 2019

Metro Exodus is a solid third entry to the series but doesn't escape without a few hiccups. Still, it's an immersive, expansive game well worth playing.

6 / 10.0 - Defunct
Jun 13, 2018

Defunct is a decent game that offers a fair bit of fun through its high-speed puzzles but also lacks depth. The character makes you want to love him but with only basic animations and limited storytelling, he's not as endearing as he's clearly meant to be. If you're a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, it's worth a look. At $14.99, however, it's probably worth waiting for a sale.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is likely to go down as the best game of the generation. Rockstar has outdone themselves, delivering one of the biggest, richest, most engrossing open world games ever made. Whether you're an action fan, RPG fan, open world fan, or just want a great story, RDR2 has something for everyone.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition is more than just a port. Within, Larian has rewritten and reworked massive pieces to address players concerns and make it the best version yet of an already excellent turn-based RPG.

9 / 10.0 - N++
May 23, 2018

N++ is an excellent physics-based platformer that demands you develop your skills to overcome its challenges. The art style may not be for everybody but its hundreds of included levels and countless hours of community content make it an excellent investment.

9 / 10.0 - God of War
Apr 20, 2018

God of War isn’t a perfect game, but it’s exactly the kind of reinvention the series needed. This game is a must own. If you own a PlayStation 4 and are even remotely interested, you owe it to yourself to pick it up.

6 / 10.0 - Super Cloudbuilt
Jul 25, 2017

Super Cloudbuilt isn’t a bad game, but it’s only decent. When everything is at its best and you’re in the free flow of upper stratosphere parkour, it can be downright thrilling. The pure fun of those moments is frequent enough to save it. When you’re forced to slow down and repeat sections, or even a whole level, it loses that luster and the cracks start to show. Given the budget price, that’s forgivable, but it’s too bad the game doesn’t focus more on what it does so well instead of everything else games in this genre are “supposed” to have.

8.5 / 10.0 - DiRT 4
Jun 9, 2017

Dirt 4 is a great rally game. The accessibility it presents to newcomers, quickly transcending into more advanced driving techniques is one of its strongest features, but the thrill of the race on these unpredictable, minimap-less tracks never failed to get my heart pumping. There are some odd quirks with physics – cars have a tendency to pirouette like a ballerina from hitting a ridge the wrong way – and a too limited track creator, but these are nitpicks before all that Dirt 4 does so right. It’s time to get dirty.
