8.5 / 10.0 - NBA 2K23
Sep 16, 2022

NBA 2K23 is certainly a game of highs and lows, although nearly none of the bummers have to do with the actual gameplay on the court. The advertisements for partners and pushes toward microtransactions are obnoxious at best and scuzzy at worst, but the actual basketball is stellar.

6 / 10.0 - SBK 22
Sep 15, 2022

Unless you’re already a diehard fan of Superbike, then SBK 22 is just a fine yet ultimately skippable racing game.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R isn’t a huge reinvention of the 2013 title, but it doesn’t have to be to please its intended audience.

6 / 10.0 - LEGO Brawls
Sep 6, 2022

Once the Lego charm expires, you’re left with a console game that requires a lot more of a financial investment than free-to-play titles that have significantly more content. And as such, Lego Brawls is stuck in a strange space where it can’t quite reach its intended audience.

While it’s not a pivotal must-play platformer, nor is it particularly important from a historical point-of-view, Pac-Man World Re-Pac is a small slice of retro fun that holds up shockingly well.

With a mixture of genuine classics and some intriguing historical novelties, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection is a stellar bundle meant for those who want to delve deeply into TMNT’s video game history.

4.5 / 10.0 - Saints Row
Aug 29, 2022

It's sad to admit, but Saints Row has become exactly what it used to mock within the genre and there's not a single reason to check out this underwhelming reboot.

8 / 10.0 - F1 Manager 2022
Aug 24, 2022

If you’ve got a knack for tinkering around and dig long-term planning, Frontier’s racing management sim is a real winner.

8.5 / 10.0 - Soul Hackers 2
Aug 22, 2022

There’s not a ton of innovation on offer, as it’s more about refinement, but Soul Hackers 2 doesn’t disappoint with its stellar combat that rewards experimentation and evolving dungeons full of bonus content.

8 / 10.0 - Madden NFL 23
Aug 19, 2022

As a result of the wide-ranging FieldSense additions, particularly the enhanced passing, Madden NFL 23 is the most fun American football game in years.

2 / 10.0 - We Are OFK
Aug 17, 2022

We Are OK takes constant shots at game development while trying to replicate being a television show and making subpar music; it's a piece of art that is insecure being within its own medium that also manages to be a multifaceted failure.

7.5 / 10.0 - GigaBash
Aug 4, 2022

Some kaiju games need a popular character like Godzilla to thrive, but others just need a solid mechanical base and a monster that is a giant building come to life.

There are always high expectations going into a game penned by Uchikoshi, but AI: The Somnium Files – Nirvana Initiative fully lives up to the incredible potential of the original by delivering an unforgettable experience.

Capcom Fighting Collection is an enjoyable batch of 10 classic games, some of which are more well known than others. It’s the more obscure titles that truly make it shine, which is why it’s a slight bummer the game doesn’t present them in a nicer way.

Destroy All Humans: Clone Carnage isn’t a good reason to pre-order Reprobed nor worth the budget asking price as a stand-alone package. It’s a shell of a multiplayer experience that only will appeal to those desperate for a local split-screen game to play and looking to relive the terrible tacked-on multiplayer modes that were more commonplace 15 years ago.

3 / 10.0 - Moorhuhn Kart 2
Jun 4, 2022

It’s a poor racing game that would’ve been blown away by the likes of Crash Team Racing, Double Dash, and other kart racers of its era, let alone the newer releases that it now competes with.

5 / 10.0 - Pac-Man Museum+
May 30, 2022

Given how Digital Eclipse and other studios have been putting out retro collections built with care and reverence to history, it is a dated relic itself rather than a great way to play Pac-Man Battle Royale at home.

6 / 10.0 - Kao the Kangaroo
May 27, 2022

Kao the Kangaroo is a polished platformer that, to its credit and detriment, feels like a time capsule. It's so much of a throwback that its simplistic nature is both its greatest attribute while also holding it back from being a great playing game in the year of our Lord 2022.

The Lego Builder’s Journey PS5 port keeps the whimsical charm of the base game, even if it’s not the best-looking or playing version of it.

8 / 10.0 - MotoGP 22
Apr 21, 2022

Whether you just want to suit up and race the iconic MotoGP courses or are looking to relive the 2009 season in one of the finest historic modes ever in a racing game, you can’t go wrong with this year’s offering. No matter if you picked up last year’s game or not, MotoGP 22 is a worthwhile purchase that doesn’t need the typical caveats
