The Last of Us Part II delivers an emotional and well thought out story, all accompanied by great graphics, phenomenal voice acting, and sleek mechanics. It may not be Naughty Dog's finest, but it's one I cannot recommend enough for fans of the series.
For as much as it rewrites the rule books of what a video game remake can be, it also honours the original in ways that will certainly please fans. The combat is captivating and entertaining, the visuals are often jaw-dropping, and the world design is top-class from a developer who is no stranger to vibrant and detailed worlds.
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.
