Nick is GameCrate.com's Managing Editor. His Stardew Valley farm is going pretty well, but you don't care. Nobody cares.

9 / 10.0 - DOOM Eternal
Mar 24, 2020

It's very easy to ignore the few rough patches in DOOM Eternal. This is a fantastic FPS with tons to do. It's also one of the most over-the-top and insane games ever made.

Kentucky Route Zero tells a story unlike anything else you'll find in gaming. It uses a point and click adventure format that's pretty basic, but hits high notes with its dialogue, themes, and music.

Wild Hearts is a game with a ton of charm, but it left me wanting more. It feels like it could have made the leap from good to great with some relatively minor additions and tweaks.

Aug 26, 2019

Control is Remedy's best game in nearly twenty years, and easily one of the best games of 2019.

7.5 / 10.0 - Rage 2
May 14, 2019

Rage 2 isn't a revolution, but it's a well-executed open world shooter with satisfying core gameplay and big splashes of color.

7.8 / 10.0 - Battlefield V
Nov 21, 2018

In many ways it feels too early to judge Battlefield V, and the game doesn't feel quite as substantial as it needs to. But the foundation is strong, and upcoming free content releases should add a lot of depth to the title.

7.5 / 10.0 - Call of Cthulhu
Oct 30, 2018

Call of Cthulhu suffers from a slow opening, but those who can make it deeper will find a satisfying horror mystery with plenty of twists and turns.

7.3 / 10.0 - Frozen Synapse 2
Oct 5, 2018

Frozen Synapse 2's tactical core remains solid and fascinating, but the lack of a sufficiently detailed tutorial makes learning the new depths of the game a frustrating experience.

8 / 10.0 - Donut County
Sep 12, 2018

Donut County's gameplay doesn't offer much of a challenge, but the mechanics work as an engaging core for a game that delivers so many charming characters and genuine laughs.

7.3 / 10.0 - Bad North
Sep 6, 2018

Bad North feels a lot like a mobile title in terms of its limited scope, tight focus, and simple controls, and that makes it a fantastic fit for the Switch in portable mode.

8.5 / 10.0 - Dead Cells
Aug 6, 2018

Dead Cells takes the best gameplay elements from Metroidvania and rogue-lite games and combines them into something that sinks its hooks into you and won't let go.

It's a really great package for Sonic enthusiasts, and if you don't already own Sonic Mania then buying Plus is a very easy recommendation.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a powerful game that tells a relevant story. It doesn't innovate much in terms of gameplay, but everything else about the game is executed at an impressively high level.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is a massive and ambitious action game that delivers an epic sense of scale. From single stealthy murders up to the never-ending fortress battles available via online play, Shadow of War is a blast.

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is a worthy addition to the Dishonored franchise. It doesn't eclipse any of the core games, but it's well worth your time and money if you're a fan of the series.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm's first episode is heavy on atmosphere and emotion, but light on narrative or gameplay. It will appeal to those who loved the heart-wrenching drama of the first game, but could have a hard time attracting any new fans.

7.5 / 10.0 - LawBreakers
Aug 15, 2017

LawBreakers offers innovative gameplay and an in-your-face attitude, and the gameplay part, at least, succeeds more than it fails. The game will have to fight to survive, but there's fun to be had and incredible skins to unlock by playing right now.

8.5 / 10.0 - Sonic Mania
Aug 14, 2017

Sonic Mania is a wonderful blend of classic Sonic and new ideas, and should serve as an example of the great things that can happen when game companies embrace fan creators. There's no reason Sonic Mania shouldn't be followed by multiple sequels that continue its remixing magic.

7.8 / 10.0 - Sundered
Aug 3, 2017

Sundered's immense sense of style carries it over any bumps in the road, and the result is one of the best Metroidvania games released in years.
