10 / 10.0 - Rain World
Dec 22, 2018

Rain World is a one-of-a-kind experience, that while perhaps understated in its simplicity, challenges notions of traditional game design in an experimental way that yields brilliant results.

If you’re looking for a more self-contained experience, you might find yourself disappointed, although there’s still a lot of fun to be had in the simplistic story mode and local multiplayer, especially if you get a whole bunch of friends round to brawl.

7 / 10.0 - Viviette
Dec 19, 2018

'Viviette' attempts to recreate the mystery and horror of games like 'Resident Evil' within a more 16-bit setting, and for the most part works.

7 / 10.0 - GRIS
Dec 19, 2018

While visually stunning at times, the simple gameplay of 'GRIS' often lacks color, resulting in an experience that is aesthetically stimulating but surprisingly passive. There is breezy fun to be found in the cute platforming puzzles, but players who value gameplay over graphics may be disappointed in the simplicity and brevity of the journey.

Aspects of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate leave something to be desired (*cough* World of Light *cough*), and more innovation would've been welcome, but when all is said and done, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is unrivalled as a pick up and play beat 'em up. It's the most fun one can have with friends, and a roaring celebration of all things Nintendo.

Mark of the Ninja Remastered is a truly amazing stealth game and an excellent re-release that features tight controls, strong art direction, better graphics, improved audio, and a slew of extra content including an entirely new story level, a new character, additional items as well as the option to enable developer commentary

5 / 10.0 - Darksiders III
Dec 2, 2018

'Darksiders III' is like a Darksiders game from another reality. It still plays like Darksiders, but it's void of the fun finesse fans have come to expect, and instead of establishing excitement for its sequel, it just makes you want to go back and play the old ones.

8 / 10.0 - Cattails
Nov 29, 2018

Cattails begs comparisons to the dearly-admired Stardew Valley, another little life-sim that explores the life of a little human farmer in a town that needs to get turned around, and it has clearly influenced the developers, husband-and-wife team Falcon Development.

'Spider-Man: Turf Wars' is a middle of the road expansion of one of the year's best games. Lacking in anything new or exciting to draw players back in, 'Turf Wars' skips the opportunity to either resolve plot points or do right by its characters.

8 / 10.0 - Pokémon: Let's Go
Nov 19, 2018

The new catching mechanics have brought an important aspect of the Pokémon series to life, and by keeping the game generation one specific, it'll help to ease the more stubborn fans into a change that could be beneficial to future games. While apprehension is understandable, the changes are enjoyable, and the nostalgia Kanto induces ensures the games are one of the best adventures on the Nintendo Switch this year.

6 / 10.0 - Forgotton Anne
Nov 16, 2018

Despite Forgotton Anne failing to stand out in any particular area, it’s far from a bad game. At its best and worst, it’s a mediocre story game good for a few hours of playtime. If you’re a diehard fan of steampunk or visual novels, you can probably find some value in it. However, there are certainly better story-driven games to check out.

8 / 10.0 - Hitman 2
Nov 14, 2018

By granting unshackled freedom to experiment and get creative, Hitman 2 respects its players. With goofy dialogue and murder galore, it doesn't take itself too seriously, frequently eliciting hearty laughter through its violent absurdity and silly characters. An aura of dark comedy envelopes Hitman 2's death laden tone, and it's bloody good fun.

8 / 10.0 - Bastion
Nov 4, 2018

Bastion holds up remarkably well after all of these years, and in many ways, Bastion is a masterclass in game design.

7 / 10.0 - 7 Billion Humans
Nov 3, 2018

There will likely be plenty of Human Resource Machine fans who fall in love with 7 Billion Humans, and work diligently to optimize their programs. Still, puzzle solvers who aren’t versed in these concepts may be faced with tougher roadblocks then their colleagues when trying to ascend the corporate ladder.

It's smaller and less different than you might hope, but The Heist is more Spider-Man and it's still a whole lot of fun. The addition of Black Cat lets the story make up for what the gameplay doesn't change.

5.5 / 10.0 - Light Fall
Nov 1, 2018

Light Fall is an attractive 2D platformer with excellent narrative construction and fluid mechanics (to achieve its speedrunning design), but suffers from a few unfortunate flaws that at times do impact its gameplay experience.

8 / 10.0 - SoulCalibur VI
Oct 30, 2018

Soulcalibur 6 has brought the franchise back from the brink. A little underwhelming in the story department, the game still manages to deliver a satisfying fighting game experience.

Just Shapes & Beats isn't bursting with content, but the execution, level of polish and number of options here makes it well worth picking up.

My Hero One's Justice is, at its beating heart, enjoyable. A low barrier of entry results in pick up and play fun, and there's a treasure trove of unlockables to be discovered. It's a shame then that it's marred by repetition and a spattering of niggles that dampen its quality.
