Anthem isn't a terrible game. The core mechanics alone make it something worth at least trying, with the fluid Javelin control movement system and combat options offering up an interesting take on the modern shooter. The problem is that Anthem just isn't a complete package. It's buggy, boring and feels unfinished. It had potential to be another Bioware triumph, and it still could with updates and DLC, but for now, it's a bit like a shiny collectable that looks pretty but really doesn't really do much.
We really love The Crew 2. It’s both an adrenaline pumping foot to the floor racer and a relaxing cruise through the countryside. It's poor graphical detail and lack of progression from the first outing let it down but it's still a game you can sink hours into.
Released in 2013, Max: The Curse of the Brotherhood has been picking up rave reviews since it landed on the Xbox One all those years ago. So popular was it, in fact, that it was eventually developed for the PC and PS4. Now, this bright little puzzle-platform game has made its way to the Switch. But how does it stack up all these years later?
Despite high hopes, Need for Speed Payback comes up short. It might be at home in a 1980s arcade, but we expect more from racing games these days and unfortunately, an extra year in deployment wasn’t enough to save this interaction from franchise fatigued.
