3.5 / 5.0 - Crackdown 3
Feb 14, 2019

Ultimately, none of the flaws in Crackdown 3 are deal-breakers but they hold it back from being truly great. If you can look past them, and just enjoy Crackdown 3 for what it is: a game that gives you a wacky toolset to blast enemies away for 10-20 hours or more, then you'll definitely find value and fun here.

Put simply, Gathering Storm checks all the boxes of what a great expansion should be and is a must own for hardcore Civilization VI fans looking for a reason to spice things up in an incredibly positive way or get back into the game if they've been dormant.

In the more likely event that you missed it the first time around, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is a must-play for 2D Mario fans and is the best in the 2D line of games since Super Mario World.

Still, thanks to being portable, it does at least have a niche and that is this game's saving grace.

The [Persona 3] gameplay is still solid, and while the track list is a slight downgrade, it's still decent enough, and enjoyable.

The [Persona 3] gameplay is still solid, and while the track list is a slight downgrade, it's still decent enough, and enjoyable. At its core, Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is a solid music/rhythm game, with a mostly good track list, that is very fun to play; that has to factor in.

4 / 5.0 - Battlefield V
Nov 16, 2018

What I can say with confidence, though, is that Battlefield fans now have two great current-gen shooters, one set in each of the World Wars to choose from. If you skipped Battlefield 1, or don't mind paying to jump to what will now be the actively supported game in the series for the next few years, Battlefield V is definitely worth picking up at some point.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has certainly benefited from Rockstar allocating almost a whole generation's worth of development time to perfect what they wanted to accomplish. The result is a game that is easily one of the best games this year, and this console generation, but that's not all. It should eventually go down as one of the greatest games ever made.

5 / 5.0 - Forza Horizon 4
Sep 25, 2018

There's so much more in Forza Horizon 4 that I didn't have space to touch on such as player housing, #Forzathon, discoverable beauty points, character customization, plans for Route Creator, and more. It's hard to imagine an arcade racer this generation playing and looking much better than Forza Horizon 4.

4.5 / 5.0 - Destiny 2: Forsaken
Sep 18, 2018

If you were a big fan of Destiny 1, were disappointed by vanilla Destiny 2, but have it in you to give the series one last shot by trying Forsaken, I believe that you'll walk away being happy you did. It surpasses even the high bar that The Taken King set for great Destiny expansions.

4.5 / 5.0 - Madden NFL 19
Aug 14, 2018

Overall, Madden 19 once again is an incredibly complete package and is among the best sport sims you can play currently. Longshot surprises with a solid (although a bit unbalanced) second effort, MUT, Franchise and gameplay as a whole all received worthwhile additions, changes, and improvements, and together it makes Madden 19 worthy of a buy regardless of what you play it for.

4 / 5.0 - Sonic Mania Plus
Jul 10, 2018

If you're a hardcore fan of the original, Sonic Mania Plus is an easy buy. It adds on neatly onto your original game (no need to start all over), and will extend your playtime at least another few hours if not more.

If peak performance is your #1 concern – which is fine considering how damn pretty Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy looks on PS4 and Xbox One – then maybe you should skip the Switch version.

All in all, Mario Tennis Aces offers up plenty to keep single players busy, but playing with friends takes everything the game does well up a big notch. It was so much fun playing 2v2 doubles with the Twinfinite staff in preparation for review.

Now that we're a month into Warmind's release, the question of whether it holds up largely depends on the kind of Destiny player you are. If the recent reveal of Forsaken has you itching to play Destiny 2 again, and you're not already roped into the Season 1 expansion pass anyway, then sure, grab Warmind as it will give you access to more events to keep you busy over the summer.

1.5 / 5.0 - Agony
May 29, 2018

All of the problems above spoil what little Agony does right, and as a result, it's hard to recommend Agony to anyone. The only people who should consider Agony are people that want a truly hardcore, even at the expense of enjoyment, survival horror game that will put your patience to the test.

We're starting to run long here, and that's because Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is such a huge game that one review that wants to remain reasonably sized in terms of word length is going to have a hard time getting to everything. So let me leave you with this: Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire rises well above the typical role-playing fair, and will provide an unforgettable experience for those that are willing to put the time to fully embrace what it is offering.

The questing isn't anything to write home about it seems, but it's still a fast-paced, free-to-play MMORPG, that is genuinely fun to play thanks to its dynamic combat.

4 / 5.0 - MLB 18: The Show
Mar 27, 2018

MLB The Show as a franchise could easily let itself crumble due to the non-existent competition, but it hasn't and it's continuing to chug along. The improvements this year are great, but depending on your tastes may not be applicable.

It would take a monumental effort to make a Kirby game “un-fun.” Kirby Star Allies isn't ruined because of the allies mechanic, it still functions as an enjoyable Kirby game.
