Unscored - F1 2021
Jul 12, 2021

Perhaps the most important thing about F1 2021 is that Codemasters has not messed with the actual mechanics of driving the car much, beyond tweaks necessary for the 2021-spec cars. With a good force-feedback wheel, the cars are engaging to drive, and you can feel subtleties in cars from different teams—a McLaren handles differently to an Alpine to a Red Bull to a Mercedes, as you'd hope they would. If you're a fan of the sport, you'll probably enjoy playing F1 2021.

Unscored - Returnal

Returnal clearly heralds a new era for Housemarque, in terms of turning the focused arcade-blasting likes of Super Stardust HD into quest-worthy 3D action. Keep it coming, Sony and Housemarque.

Buy, unless you have responsibilities. This game could very well threaten them.

Bowser’s Fury works just fine as an added bonus packaged with an under-appreciated platforming gem from the Wii U era. If you’ve never played 3D World before, this is a great chance to catch up on a fresh take on 3D Mario design. If you’re mainly interested in Bowser’s Fury, though, maybe wait until the strong ideas get expanded into a full, standalone game.

The good outweighs the bad. Get a PlayStation Plus trial and give this imperfect car-combat gem a spin.

Unscored - Hitman 3
Jan 19, 2021

A solid if unambitious expansion pack—and that should tell you whether to buy this one or catch up on Hitman 2 instead.

A must-buy for PlayStation 5, should you have the stomach for the original gameplay formula.

A great choice for next-gen consoles or high-end PCs, should you have the bandwidth for dozens of hours of Viking adventure.

Buy it if you want an "expansion pack" sequel with an interesting story and solid, familiar gameplay.
