4.3 / 5.0 - Splatoon 3
Sep 22, 2022

It may be more of the same, but Splatoon 3 is the most refined experience yet!

If you didn't like FFXIV before now, Endwalker will do nothing to change your mind. But if you're in, this emotional rollercoaster will be rolling towards a satisfying conclusion, that absolutely will not disappoint.

5 / 5.0 - OlliOlli World
Feb 4, 2022

A masterclass in design, style, and connection, OlliOlli World perfects the formula and delivers a heartfelt world at the same time.

4 / 5.0 - Back 4 Blood
Oct 13, 2021

Back 4 Blood is not just a new coat of paint. It tries new ideas to shake up its legendary formula, mashing together their learning to create a cohesive, insanely fun co-op experience.

2.8 / 5.0 - Ashwalkers
Apr 16, 2021

Ashwalkers is nothing but a seedling of an idea that is struggling to grow in the fields of ash that surround it.

Feb 9, 2021

Hitman 3 takes the formula in new directions, and will continually surprise you without stepping too far outside the known boundaries.

3.5 / 5.0 - Disjunction
Feb 5, 2021

Disjunction has all the right ingredients, but it just fails to really do anything interesting with them.

3.6 / 5.0 - Haven
Dec 30, 2020

Haven is a special game that is hard to recommend, but hard to miss. If you want a good honest look at star crossed lovers, and you have someone to play it with, definitely consider dropping some time into this lovely world.

That might sound a little harsh, but in all honesty I wonder who I would recommend Immortals Fenyx Rising to. If you have children or young adults around you and you'd like to connect over a game that the whole family can play, this is definitely a safe bet. If you're not put off by the narrative that I've described here, and are looking for a decent time filler to round out your year that will put you inside a nice looking world, then yeah, this could work for you. However if you don't fit into those two groups, I think your time would be best spent playing something with a little more meaning.

I think Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is worth your time, the only question is are you willing to push through its shortcomings in order to see that payoff? For me personally the answer was yes. For you – I say do some research before pledging your sword for the realm.

A intriguing change of pace that gives the Assassin's Creed series the breathing room it has so desperately needed for eons, without making any compromises on content. Well worth you time to enter the gates of Valhalla.

3.5 / 5.0 - Pendragon
Oct 15, 2020

A delightful rogulike where you collect stories rather than powerups. Pendragon is a surprising look at the tales of King Arthur, but it's a little light on the strategic combat.

2.6 / 5.0 - Rocket Arena
Aug 17, 2020

A mish mash of concepts from other games, Rocket Arena does nothing to warrant the price tag, and doesn't deliver enough to make it an enticing free-to-play option. A good base, only time will tell if they can develop it further.

4.5 / 5.0 - Ghost of Tsushima
Jul 15, 2020

If you’re looking for precise, deliberate combat along the lines of Sekiro, you won’t find it here. However, if you want the biggest Samurai epic that’s ever been created, Ghost of Tsushima is at the top of the class.

Death Stranding is highly divisive, but it's certainly unique

If [the Switch version] is the only way you can play The Outer Worlds it may be worth the price of admission. Otherwise this ambitious port is sure to disappoint.

If you are looking for a crime caper worthy of Scorsese, this is it.

2.5 / 5.0 -
Feb 10, 2020

Still extremely unique, but age and the initial failings of the game are really starting to show their cracks.
