Anthem's disjointed story, boring loot, repetitive missions, and shallow endgame are all disappointing. At least it's pretty.

An epic clash between the some of manga's most famous characters shouldn't be this dull, frankly.
Simply the best rally sim around, building on its predecessor's already fine foundations.
Repetitive and middling, Crackdown 3 is a totally average open-world game that doesn't give itself a way to stand out.
A charming traveling artist adventure which uses image capture in interesting ways.
It's Far Cry 5 again, on a smaller scale and with a post-apocalyptic paint job.
An incredible trip through a stunning post-apocalyptic world, let down by some uninspiring FPS combat.
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.
Suffers in comparison to Yakuza 0, but is still a compelling drama and an important part of the series as a whole.
Gathering Storm is an ambitious expansion full of welcome additions, even if it does falter at the end.
Involved, spectacular, space battles packaged into satisfying campaigns, and great fan service too.
A glacial pace and abundance of busywork make My Time At Portia a tough recommendation.
The sharpest writing around, wrapped inside a surprising adventure that's tough but rarely unfair. Failbetter's finest hour.
Brimming character and imagination, Wargroove occasionally loses its groove over long-winded core gameplay.
A strategically deep deckbuilder that, with any luck, has spawned a brilliant new subgenre.
Passive AI and a flawed economy ruin what could have been a refreshing 4X experiment.
A tense, challenging, and beautiful remake of a classic survival horror game, and with enough fresh ideas to make it feel excitingly new.
A wonderfully absurd tale of insurrection and kicking stuff in a cheery-looking world.
Uncomplicated but gratifying flying, in scenarios of increasing silliness and therefore likeability.
A fun relic of the early PS2 days that I still like a lot, but slightly too dated for most players to enjoy.
