Pokémon Sword introduces some welcomed features, but the game feels as if it would be more at home on the 3DS, with the dated visuals, lacklustre animations, and a lack of polish that leaves you wishing they had taken more time on the game.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order delivers a magnificent Star Wars experience that lives up to so many expectations, and then some. The marvelous blend and execution of platforming, challenging combat, and developed characters woven into a singular adventure is simply mesmerizing.
Need For Speed Heat takes everything we loved from the past 25 years of Need For Speed and puts it into one neat package. While the game excels in having a little something for everyone, it drastically falters in its storytelling and the rather awkward dialogue left a lot to be desired.
While there are plenty of events to keep you and your friends busy, the Story Mode leaves a lot to be desired, even though its premise isn’t terrible. The gameplay is mostly pleasantly accessible but sadly many events lack a good enough challenge, even if you crank up the difficulty in the Quick Match mode.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare manages to keep in the spirit of its inspiration while giving enough of a refresh of its tried and tested multiplayer (with a lot of lessons learnt from the Black Ops branch) to definitely come as a recommended game for any fans of the series, current, lapsed, or newly intrigued.
Developer Other Ocean Emeryville captures the heart of the original classic with re-recorded orchestral music that swells dramatically alongside the sounds of crows and thunder cracking under a gloomy night sky. The graveyard, castles, gargoyles and even your one-eyed protagonist, Sir Daniel Fortesque, all look fantastic.
