The PC version of LEGO Builder's Journey is a great port that takes advantage of next-gen visual features to make a pretty game even prettier. Even if you don't have the best hardware to take advantage of its newfound beauty, Builder's Journey is a short little tale I highly recommend anyone to not skip out on.
If you liked Valhalla, which I did, and want more of it, then you’ll probably like Wrath of the Druids. But the sudden drop in quality of writing and insignificant gameplay additions adds less than I wanted or expected. Let’s hope the next expansion provides a better setting and properly explores the main game’s fallout.
Outriders stands in the grey area between a single-player RPG shooter and a co-op online looter, with elements plucked from both but never fully transforming into either. It feels like a standard cover-based shooter mixed in with RPG & online elements, and while that is perfectly serviceable, it's not exactly worth the asking price on PC or console, unless you're playing it with Xbox Game Pass.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a game of the generation, but its technical and gameplay ambitions can get hampered by either perplexing design decisions or hardware that most gamers have. The open-world futuristic Night City and the people who reside in it are some of gaming's most memorable ones and the story captures the essence of Cyberpunk beautifully.
While it's not worth buying at full price, Observer: System Redux is definitely worth getting it on a sale and trying it out. Be warned that the game might not suitable for people with a history of epilepsy or who had suffered seizures in the past.
Watch Dogs Legion is a fine entry in a franchise that keeps changing up its tone with each instalment. It mixes the tones from the first 2 games well enough with a serviceable story and an engaging gameplay mechanic. How much fun you want from this game will depend on how much variety the game's 'play as anyone' system offers, which in my experience has been plenty.
Mafia Definitive Edition puts a nice graphical coat of paint on a dated, yet much-loved classic. However, while the story and characters are just as good if not better than the original, its gameplay mechanics fall short and performance even shorter.
Neversong is a beautiful game about a very personal, and gut-wrenching story that manages to exceed expectations in the narrative department, if not in the gameplay itself. If you're fond of short adventures with a gripping plot, then this one's for you.
Mind Control Delete breathes new life into the modern classic, adding a whole new dimension to the linear structure of Superhot. From challenging new types of enemies and weapons to new hacks and powerups (and more of the cryptic storytelling), Mind Control Delete adds in enough content to be well worth your time.
Resident Evil 3 makes yet another case for Capcom's immense talent in updating the classics to a modern standard. Everything from the characters to the visuals, the atmosphere and the addictive gameplay loop here reflect the original game's big ambitions. The story here gets some nice tweaks along with the freakishly awesome design of Nemesis, which newer players will also find rewarding.
Doom Eternal is a worthy addition to the Doom franchise and it does take it forward with a number of well-implemented elements. You can try hard to find reasons to complain to in the game, but the game will keep you hooked up throughout the roughly-15 hours of ruthless gameplay. Whether you are a fan of the franchise or not, there is no reason why you shouldn't try out this game.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare marks a celebratory return to form for Infinity Ward and Activision, as it successfully pumps new blood into this classic franchise. While the single-player campaign could have been longer for my money's worth, I'm content with the overly stylized storytelling, over-the-top, yet realistic visuals and most of all - fun gameplay.
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot is an excellent addition to Akira Toriyama's infamous Dragon Ball franchise, While the game retells the classic story that we all know and love, I do wish we got to see some more original things in there. The game captures the feel of Dragon Ball so well that I can highly recommend it to someone who has never seen or read DBZ.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order proves to be one of the best games in the franchise, while simultaneously proving yet again that single-player narrative games are here to stay. While it does take a lot of inspiration from many other classics, it manages to carve out a unique identity.
