Steep costs and microtransactions taint an otherwise dreamy life sim.

Messy, overcomplicated and slow to start, but fun once it picks up speed.
Worth playing for the atmosphere even though its pace and plot are uneven.
Cute and approachable, but with enough bite to satisfy.
A faithful recreation, but why go back when Stardew has since perfected the genre?
A lighthearted romp, with plenty of opportunities for creative building and a surprisingly good story.
Cute, with a battle system that has more depth than it lets on, but the game's tone gets rather irritating.
Getting to punch, kick and burn things as a Pokemon is a delight, but it doesn't feel fair when playing with others.
A solid tactical RPG frustratingly buried under a terrible port.
Stardew Valley's blend of pixel charm and gentle pacing makes for an excellent little escape.
A great combat system and world held back by immersion-breaking dialogue choices.
Final Fantasy Explorers is a great entry point for those interested in the co-op monster-hunting genre. The combat is its strongest asset, but expect to have to do some grinding along the way.
It's got nothing on Final Fantasy at its best, but it's still an excellent example of the genre with some fun twists on RPG traditions.
Utterly charming with a fantastic set of design tools, but it'll make you crave the freedom of more traditional Animal Crossing games.
A hugely enjoyable addition to the world of Eorzea with plenty of room to spread your wings and explore.
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire remain faithful to what made the GBA originals great. The new features are strong, but some of the progress made by Pokemon X&Y has also been undone.
