Anthem has the potential to be something greater than it is, but BioWare needs to focus on a clear path to get it there. It may be riddled with bugs that break the game, but there are core elements that can’t just be fixed with a simple update down the line.
Metro Exodus demands patience and prior knowledge if you’re looking to appreciate every narrative moment, and the control scheme is likely to confound new players, but it’s an essential purchase to fans of the prior games that want to see Artyom’s journey through to the end.
Okami isn’t just a game, it’s a visual masterpiece of art and design and a testament to creativity that needs to be experienced as words alone don’t do it justice. This is the definitive edition of the game, and a game that you absolutely should not miss out on.
Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight gives you the opportunity to spend more time with the members of S.E.E.S, providing you're not looking for a grand Persona story. The dancing mechanics are as solid as ever and the characters are beautifully rendered and animated.
I’m not a huge ‘Souls fan, at least not since bouncing off Dark Souls 2, and I tend to shy away from these games as I get older; however, even though Ashen has some difficulty spikes that remind me of those games, the vibrant world, likeable characters, companion system, and soothing soundtrack all kept me coming back.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is by far the most complete game in the popular franchise. It hasn’t reinvented the wheel and doesn’t need to. Ultimate presents enough additions and improvements to smooth out the edges and deliver a beautiful balance of chaos and fluidity.
Overall, Just Cause 4 is a fun game. I’ve enjoyed my time with it, but I can’t justify it at full price given that it displays a lot of noticeable inconsistency and that it feels like it’s toyed with new ideas, but ultimately failed to carve its own identity out of the franchise.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a solid entry in the turn-based tactical combat genre, bringing with it a mash-up of mechanics which results in a fresh and enticing experience. Aside from a few movement bugs and no progress tracker for items in each area, the game looks, sounds, and plays great.
Farming Simulator 19 is a complex and intricate farming experience but it is incredibly fun once you have grasped all the mechanics. The relaxing nature of the game sets you up for a great couch gaming experience, and the amount of work to be done on your land, as well as others, will give you endless hours of gameplay.
