The best video game adaptation of the wildest manga property gets a better-than-average port. For Jojo's fans only, though.

Riko and Reg's descent to the netherworld is a classic in existential dread and worldbuilding. Playing in this broken world imparts an even worse sense of dread.

5 / 10.0 - Saints Row
Aug 23, 2022

Unambitious, dated, and dreadfully lacking in polish, only series fans eager for more classic Saints gameplay need apply.

Lean, light, and pleasingly presented, this is a perfect snack on the Switch when travelling on your next exciting adventure.

9 / 10.0 - Two Point Campus
Aug 5, 2022

Charming, witty, and hard to put down, Two Point Campus scores an approachable A for the armchair administrator.

6.5 / 10.0 - My Little Dictator
Jul 29, 2022

For the small audience looking for a romantic World War 2 satire featuring a harem of loli leaders, My Little Dictator will entertain for dozens of hours. Just skip the combat.

7 / 10.0 - Live A Live
Jul 22, 2022

Repetitive combat and exploration pad out this wonderfully remastered cult JRPG experience that falls just short of a recommendation.

8 / 10.0 - Sniper Elite 5
May 25, 2022

Rebellion treads little new ground, however Sniper Elite 5 remains the chief among WW2 stealth action games.

Bloated, buggy and with its best ideas in the back half, Neocore's grimdark tactical King Arthur spin-off is halfway decent might and magic.

7.5 / 10.0 - Weird West
Mar 31, 2022

Playing in this Western sandbox is a joy when it is rewarding your exploration and moral choices with strange outcomes and interesting characters. A lack of late-game variety brings its flaws to the fore.

A twist-filled return to the mythology of The Taken King should lure back lapsed series veterans in Destiny 2’s most focused and challenging campaign yet.

8.5 / 10.0 - Conan Chop Chop
Mar 2, 2022

Opening up the gruesome and adult world of Conan to school-aged children is a hilarious surprise but Chop Chop’s greatest feat is lowering the rogue-lite barrier of entry for the curious solo adventurer or group only to slay them mercilessly.

6 / 10.0 - Astria Ascending
Oct 4, 2021

A sensory achievement for nostalgic JRPGs left without any enjoyable game under the hood and falls short of an already exceptional 2021 JRPG roster.

7.5 / 10.0 - Humankind
Aug 26, 2021

Humankind is an impressive showing of what Amplitude can do with historical turn-based strategy but is edged out by the series that clearly inspired it. The promise on the box of building a culturally diverse empire is not yet fulfilled, with successive playthroughs showing the moral choice and culture systems as being underdeveloped.

9 / 10.0 - Eldest Souls
Aug 14, 2021

A surprisingly complex and mechanically perfect condensation of the Soulsborne experience into the boss rush genre. Eldest Souls not only joins the ranks of its genre champs Titan Souls and Furi, it defeats them.

After 14 years, the best soundtrack on the Nintendo DS has been met with its sequel – now the best soundtrack on the Nintendo Switch. Delightful deja vu, this sequel revives everything that works and delivers it all over again with vibrant new life. Just excuse the disappointing new cast and technical hiccups for one of the year’s most stylish surprises.
