Super Mario Odyssey is easily one of the best Mario games in a decade and Nintendo has crafted a game full of fun and surprises.

Super Mario Odyssey is a must for Switch owners, young and old, and will no doubt go down as a classic.
God of War ticks all the boxes; it looks stunning, combat is satisfying, offers an emotionally gripping campaign and a variety of things to do once you've completed the main story. While some fans of the series may be worried about the overhaul of the franchise, we think it was a great idea and we really can't wait for the next in the series – whenever that might be.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a beautifully crafted game. The combination of excellent story-telling and world-building, gorgeous visuals and sound design along with an outstanding combat system will make it one of 2019's best games.

A game that's fun to play, engaging and teaches you about history? It's a winner in our books.
Shadow of War is such an enjoyable game – the Nemesis System and fortresses are intricate and provide unique, compelling gameplay.
