It may be short, but it still packs a punch. Like a Dragon: Gaiden does little new, but its story is fascinating and heartbreaking in equal measure.

A disappointing campaign, and a sandbox rework that shows promise, but feels like it's still some major balance patches away from leaving the game in a good place.
A worthy send-off to Guild Wars 2's Elder Dragon saga, and a reason to be optimistic about the future of the game.
There's still work to be done on the game at large, but The Witch Queen is a massive step in the right direction. The campaign alone is worth the price of admission.
Playground's singular series gets a lush new setting, but otherwise remains committed to tuning an already winning formula. But even a marginal improvement on the best racing series around is worth celebrating.
Please make more games, Original Fire. Show the rest of the genre how 'sim-meets-arcade' is done.
A thoughtful response to Dishonored that makes for an entertaining stealth shooter in its own right, but it's the multiplayer invasions that make Deathloop sing.
The setting of Onomichi proves that the long-running series still has some tricks, making Yakuza 6 a worthy finale for its main protagonist.
Beyond Light is a fun campaign on a beautiful and expansive new world, but Destiny 2 is still some way from being the best version of itself.
Not the best, biggest or neatest expansion in the series' history, Shadowkeep nonetheless sets a solid foundation for what's to come.
Beneath its charming and inventive worlds, Outer Wilds hides a cleverly unfolding mystery.
A triumphant remake of Yakuza 2, full of fun diversions and featuring one of the series' best stories.
An entertaining but unambitious sequel that collects up the best features of previous games and adds in some interesting new twists.
Suffers in comparison to Yakuza 0, but is still a compelling drama and an important part of the series as a whole.
Essentially more of its predecessor but with a more consistent quality of levels. Which is fine: its predecessor was great.
I listened to Wandersong's soundtrack while writing this review, and I've been happily jiggling my leg throughout.
A captivating story and varied card battles ensure this light-touch RPG remains entertaining throughout its lengthy campaign.
Unless you're looking for a hardcore sim, Forza Horizon is still the best racing series around.
Comfortably the best, funniest and most heartwarming game about a desperate battle over real estate, now available on PC as a good port at a generous price.
Joyful and surprising, even when you're cracking open an anthropomorphised egg.
