In theory, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered should be a win for Square Enix. In execution, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles stumbles to tell a story worth revisiting.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is a brilliant sequel to the original trilogy that makes Crash a relevant gaming figure once more.

Yes, Astro’s Playroom is included on the console but don’t let it slip off your radar. You’re getting a brilliant platformer on day one that’s an homage to the PlayStation legacy. Throughout four stages, you’ll experience everything the DualSense offers and also a great lead-in to the generation. Since the introduction of the DualShock nearly two decades ago, the controller has marginally improved the experience. Now, I feel like we’re seeing a true revolution thanks to the Adaptive Triggers and Haptic Touch the DualSense uses to immerse players in exciting ways.
Everything about this game oozes style, Nadji Jeter is the definitive version of Miles Morales thanks to his goofy and geeky take on the web-slinger.
