8.3 / 10.0 - Enter the Gungeon
Apr 5, 2016

Enter the Gungeon not only refines the mechanics of the roguelike shooter, but also introduces an eclectic mix of gameplay features from other genres with skillful execution. With brilliant pixel art, incredible attention to detail, Devolver Digital-esque humour, a wealth of content, and a high level of replayability, this is a brilliant game.

9.1 / 10.0 - Dark Souls III
Apr 4, 2016

Every element of Dark Souls III reinforces the others, from the broad, contiguous sweep of its stunning yet desolate world to the tiniest, menacing croak of a waiting basilisk. This triumphant summation of the series to date sets a new standard for action-RPG gameplay, and is a landmark achievement in game design.

8.1 / 10.0 - Quantum Break
Apr 1, 2016

Quantum Break combines masterful storytelling with fast-paced combat and great acting to prove that linear games are still a force to be reckoned with. You'll want to play through this game more than once to catch all of the nuances it has to offer.

A refreshing change of pace in an era of serious gaming and consistent across all five episodes, Story Mode offers a laid-back adventure that’s accessible to any type of gamer. Order Up kicks off a new journey for the Order of the Stone with another solid, enjoyable effort, with more than enough humour and direction to keep you interested in what’s to come from the next three episodes.

8.1 / 10.0 - Samorost 3
Mar 29, 2016

Samorost 3 is an enthralling trip that fuels your wanderlust. Just like visiting an old friend, it’s tempting to pop by again after you’re done - if only to relive your memories.

There's a charm that sits just under the surface, and sometimes you have to scratch away the filler to get to the good stuff, but when you do, The Division shines in the most beautiful way.

It's clear that a great deal of effort has gone into making the Paris map a living, breathing world for you to play around in. The mission itself feels absolutely brimming with nuance and possibility, although it's a shame the same cannot be said for the extra modes being offered to as a distraction until episode two comes out.

8 / 10.0 - Far Cry Primal
Mar 1, 2016

A well-polished entry into a genre quickly increasing in popularity, Far Cry Primal is one of the best games of 2016 so far. With enough beauty to keep you exploring and enough danger to make you nervous whilst doing it, Primal implores you to play on.

Will you enjoy In Too Deep if you liked Telltale's other The Walking Dead series? Absolutely. Does it stand up to our expectations based on the previous series? Not really. A Walking Dead game in shape and form, Michonne just lacks the tension in atmosphere and decision making.

Garden Warfare 2 looks great, boasts a huge roster of inventive characters and contributes much to the social shooter genre. Single-player and PvE content is lacking, however, and this exacerbates the already glacial pace of progression.

7.4 / 10.0 - SUPERHOT
Feb 25, 2016

Superhot is a groundbreaking idea wrapped in a slick, minimalist aesthetic. Though its gameplay offers little variety, it is fun and truly unique, and comes at a fair price.

The Flame in the Flood's relentlessly real time gameplay combined with an almost exclusive focus on crafting, survival and preparedness makes it a refreshing and unique take on the roguelike. Combined with a low-ploy visual style that's easy on the eyes when it's not downright beautiful, vivid sound design and a mild acoustic soundtrack, this one's got a lot going for it. Be prepared to start over a lot, though.

8 / 10.0 - Ninja Senki DX
Feb 23, 2016

Ninja Senki DX revels in its own simplicity, distilling the basics of 2D platformers into a single, beginner-friendly crash course in the genre. It's not the fanciest or the most difficult, but every aspect of it is carefully calculated to provide a satisfying experience for players of all levels of experience.

8.3 / 10.0 - Street Fighter V
Feb 15, 2016

Like Ken in his black training shirt, Street Fighter V offers a different fighting experience without losing its soul and essence. If Capcom can fix the frustrating PC issues with the keyboard, this game would truly be impeccable.

7.5 / 10.0 - Unravel
Feb 15, 2016

Unravel is artistic to its core; it makes up for its limited complexity by shaping an atmosphere that draws you in and makes you see Yarny as more than just a cute mascot, with music that's both mood appropriate to the game and a relaxing soundtrack outside of it.

7.3 / 10.0 - Firewatch
Feb 9, 2016

By attempting to invigorate a genre which many feel has gone rather stale, Campo Santo has simply reminded us what it is we liked about that genre in the first place. Perhaps in time Firewatch will be considered a forerunner, the one which broke the mould, but right now it manages to only fall painfully between two stools.

8.8 / 10.0 - XCOM 2
Feb 8, 2016

An incremental rather than radical improvement, but no less an achievement for that, XCOM 2 irons out flaws you didn't even realise existed in Enemy Unknown. The consequence is one of the best strategy games in years.

8.4 / 10.0 - The Witness
Feb 1, 2016

This is an intricate, beautiful, masterfully crafted game that surprises and delights on several fronts. Unfortunately, it also becomes incredibly and relentlessly punishing in a way that could put many off.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters is an honest effort to create a good game based around an intentionally bad fake movie that ends up partially successful. It brings some interesting twists to a repetitive formula, but the sparse use of them coupled with its lack of length leads you to believe something important was left on the cutting room floor.

7.8 / 10.0 - Punch Club
Jan 15, 2016

Stylistically, Punch Club is a delightful tribute to '80s pop-culture and underdog sports dramas. At its best it's as exciting as watching a real sporting event and rises, believe it or not, to the level of interactive poetry about the struggles and temptations of everyday life. At its worst, it's a slog and a chore with little to keep you going but abstract icons indicating progress amid frustrating setbacks.
