Youngblood's gorgeous, terrible world is worth exploring, despite a slight narrative and oppressively boring progression systems.

64 / 100 - Sea of Solitude
Jul 12, 2019

Sea of Solitude is a gorgeous adventure that knows its way around mental illness, but doesn't make great use of the medium to tell its story.

93 / 100 - Apex Legends
Feb 12, 2019

Apex Legends is a quiet revolution in how we communicate in games, and an excellent team-based battle royale I can recommend to anyone, caveat-free.

Monster Hunter: World's thrilling fights with fantastic beasts never get old, even if they require tiresome item management during downtime.

70 / 100 - Call of Duty: WWII
Nov 4, 2017

A drab campaign doesn't do the history justice, but Call of Duty: WWII's multiplayer recalls the glory days of Modern Warfare.

82 / 100 - Forza Motorsport 7
Oct 3, 2017

Light performance problems and a poor loot box system can't quite distract from Forza Motorsport 7's accommodating difficulty, stunning beauty, and lavish racing options.

85 / 100 - Outlast II
Apr 24, 2017

Stealth and pursuit haven't changed much in Outlast 2, but it excels as a beautiful, brutal journey through extreme spiritual anxieties.

Gorgeous but empty, challenging but not always fair, The Ringed City is a weak reflection of the series' best traits.

68 / 100 - Watch Dogs 2
Dec 6, 2016

A great PC port and lovely open world don’t give depth to Watch Dogs 2’s shallow combat and stealth design.

78 / 100 - Shadow Warrior 2
Oct 14, 2016

Shadow Warrior 2's combat is gleefully expressive and varied, but undermined by tired, dated humor.

ReCore buries a great action platformer beneath layers and layers of open world busywork.

88 / 100 - Abzu
Aug 2, 2016

Gorgeous and invigorating, Abzû flounders a bit with a hamfisted story, but there's still nothing quite like it on the PC.

Realm of Shadows indicates that it might tell an interesting Batman story, but takes time to get there and suffers from Telltale’s tired design and engine limitations.

Lovely Planet Arcade is a fast, challenging deconstruction of old school FPS design that can be frustrating, but makes up for it with heaps of charm.

86 / 100 - Furi
Jul 6, 2016

A stylish mix of bullet hell and deft swordplay, Furi is only held back by rare bugs and poorly designed difficulty spikes.

VR can’t elevate Edge of Nowhere’s mediocre climbing, shallow combat, and contrived story.

88 / 100 - Doom
May 18, 2016

Despite a drab multiplayer mode and limited level creation tools, Doom is a cheeky and fulfilling return to pared-down acrobatic gunplay.

94 / 100 - Dark Souls III
Apr 4, 2016

Sprawling level design, thrilling combat, and masterful indirect storytelling make Dark Souls 3 the best Dark Souls yet.

The Division is a challenging co-op cover shooter and a gorgeous open world diminished by bloated and unnecessary RPG tropes.

55 / 100 - Soul Axiom
Mar 8, 2016

Despite an impressive variety in art direction and environments, Soul Axiom's puzzle design is shallow and frustrating.
