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.
Hitman 2 is a worthy successor to the first reboot. While it could’ve been a meaty expansion, given the focus on refining mechanics rather than introducing new ones, it's a perfect sequel to a near-perfect game, and why would you mess with perfection?
NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 is a great improvement over the first game, and the addition of the ‘Season Mode’ adds that extra layer of fun. Mechanically, the game remains a classic arcade experience, with a sprinkling of difficulty, just enough to make things interesting.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has made a sacrifice that will definitely cause some to turn away from the title. However, removing the campaign came with its own line of benefits. Multiplayer has an addictive twist for those who like their traditional Call of Duty experience, Zombies is as engaging and fun as ever, and Blackout is arguably one of the best Battle Royale experiences available.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 is a solid entry in the series. It sticks to its tried and tested formula, for better and sometimes worse, and provides an excellent entry point if you've not played them before. The small improvements outweigh the issues that have been present since the beginning.
