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.

90 / 100 - Forza Horizon 5
Nov 4, 2021

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.

Sep 13, 2021

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.

Not the best, biggest or neatest expansion in the series' history, Shadowkeep nonetheless sets a solid foundation for what's to come.

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.

Jul 26, 2018

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.

A well-formed slice of noir mystery, beautifully presented. Some writing issues aside, A Case of Distrust is well worth your time.

Not as consistently intricate or surprising as Dishonored 2, but still a worthy epilogue that adds depth and atmosphere to the series' world.
