9.5 / 10.0 - Horizon Zero Dawn
Feb 27, 2017

Horizon Zero Dawn is a perfect mixture of great gameplay and excellent story. It has introduced PlayStation’s next big franchise and its next iconic figure in Aloy. The dissonance of Stone Age people living together with futuristic animal-like machines is a mystery steeped in intrigue, set in an open-world with rich rewards for exploration.

10 / 10.0 - Nier: Automata
Mar 16, 2017

lot of games, if not all of them all, have that something you would have changed or done differently in some situations. Nier Automata is the first game in memory where I walked away without wanting to make a single change to the experience.

Thankfully, combat is where the game shines. The gunplay is fantastic and the new contextual cover system works well, with only one or two instances where I couldn’t break or enter cover. The new jet pack is probably the best addition to the game.

6 / 10.0 - Yooka Laylee
Apr 3, 2017

Overall, I feel as though Yooka-Laylee has teased me with the past. So many good individual aspects giving me a glimpse of what I loved of the genre. But there are so many other parts of it that detract from the experience and make me wonder if I put up with such things in the past, without noticing them.

Gameplay is certainly more of the same, wrapped in a new narrative, but it matches the same high standard set by the original.

9 / 10.0 - Persona 5
Apr 11, 2017

At the end of the day, Persona 5 is an unmitigated blast. It unapologetically sticks to its style and pace, and you’ll ultimately grow to love or leave it for that. It does, however, offer a digital ton of content for both new and returning players to enjoy in a way that makes it well worth the price of admission.

Average execution across the board makes for an experience that, while not terrible in moment-to-moment gameplay, leaves no lasting impression.

8 / 10.0 - Mr. Shifty
Apr 17, 2017

Mr. Shifty often feels like a low-violence, puzzle-oriented, super-powered version of Hotline Miami. At its very best, it captures the stop-start flow of the original Hotline Miami — observe, plan, and then engage in a glorious display of speed, skill, and violence.

9 / 10.0 - MLB 17: The Show
Apr 18, 2017

MLB The Show 17 is easily the series' strongest and most involved entry to date. Even now, I continue to find subtle and notable changes that further bolster my impression of this magnificent title.

Full Throttle Remastered is a wonderful love letter to a genre past its prime and a very good game for those wanting to experience classic gaming at its finest.

7.5 / 10.0 - Little Nightmares
May 4, 2017

The fantastic tale of Six and her surreal adventure through the uncanny valley is one that will not be forgotten, especially after the startling character development of Six and the haunting ending. The artwork of this game is assuredly one of my all-time favourites, challenging the horror genre to step away from excessive gore and lazy jumpscares.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is about getting the most out of an already stellar game. Whether it be faster loading times, more convenient online lobby and gameplay, or a handful of new characters. The Souped Up Battle Mode is now far more compelling and content driven than before.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Sexy Brutale
May 7, 2017

The Sexy Brutale is a small game, set in a limited space, with big ideas. The plot is merely the container for a very clever puzzle game, and what a container it is. It is a very creepy game, standing in contrast to the bright cartoon-like art style. The sense of dread and foreboding as I raced against the clock to prevent each death literally gave me nightmares.

8 / 10.0 - Outlast Trinity
May 9, 2017

Played back-to-back, the Outlast Trinity collection begins to feel a little stale as the basic gameplay loop barely changes. That said, each title features its own slowly unravelling narrative, intimidating foes, terrifying locations and slowly builds up in intensity towards the conclusion.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is not a bad game, but it does feel like a big budget, B-tier game that has unfortunately been released a bit too early. With an ambitious open-world combined with rewarding sniping, it’s easy to pick up and play. But for those seeking a deeper, more refined experience you may need to look further afield as Sniper Ghost Warrior 3's lackluster combat and bland world often leave you wanting something just a little bit more.

The Lego formula is starting to wear a little thin, and this game’s dated presentation, both visually and in the sound department, are not up to the standard that Traveller’s Tales themselves have already exceeded in other titles.

Dragon Quest Heroes 2, overall, is a fantastic experience. A game that has caught me by surprise as I did not believe I would enjoy it quite as much as I have. With its wonderfully vibrant characters, enrapturing music, effervescent world and the amount of content included there is just so much to love about the game.

6.5 / 10.0 - Prey
May 11, 2017

Prey is aesthetically pleasing as its stylised art deco design, very much Bioshock in space, keeps the game running at a great pace while giving you just enough visual fidelity and variety to enjoy the architecture.

At the end of it all, Dawn of War 3 feels like a hybrid of the first two games in the series but between the wrong mix of mechanics and the lack of real graphical progress between iterations it hasn’t managed to live up to the standards set by the previous games.

The love that the developers have for Disney’s franchises shines through in the animation and the voice acting. Watching Goofy’s ears waggle as he walks, or the way Donald pretty much overreacts to situations is something that just never gets old. It’s been awhile since I booted up my PS3 collection of the game, but I’m inclined to say this collection looks even better. Even the CG cutscenes seem to have been re-rendered.
